The Pearl at the Gate by Anya Richards – This was a novella really. Very steamy sex book-ended by the “she’ll hate me if she knows my secret”/”he think a horrible if he knows what I like” relationship that plays out exactly like you expect for the opening paragraphs. Not bad, just predictable.
Death of a Pirate King by Josh Lanyon -This is book 4 of the Adrien English mysteries. Adrien is a bookseller/mystery writer who always seems to find himself in the soup when a dead body turns up. He’s got a glitch heart, a sharp dry wit, a touch and go relationship with his cop boyfriend Jake Riordan, and a real instinct snooping. I like this series because it fun, with the right mix of romance, sex, mystery, and annoying relatives.
Blood Soup by Kelly A. Harmon (VERY excited about this! I plan to start this book as tonight.)
The Accidental Sorcerer by K. E. Mills (in the middle of the audio, about half way through and the story is starting to pick-up)
Fugue Macabre: Bone Dance by C. J. Parker ( put on hold to finish the library book)
Weed That Strings the Hangman’s Bag by Alan Bradley ( the library book that I’ve to finish REALLY fast, only a few days left on the check out.)
Author Brian James Freeman is giving away his novella The Painted Darkness for free at http://www.downloadthedarkness.com/, for limited time, before the publication of the book in print. He asks a neat question in his “Extra” features.
Author’s Afterword: “Did I Really Commit ‘Career Suicide’ by Giving The Painted Darkness Away for Free?”
What do y’all think? Will people still buy the print book? Will it be like review copies and just drum up advanced business for the book? Personally, I think the last one has some merit. I’d love to hear you thoughts.
Author Seth Godin, is giving away a “personal addendum to Linchpin“, which is the best Business book I’ve read in a while. It is one of those title that you read and it gets you all fired up to start doing things. I bought it one audio and will probably reread it when ever I feel stuck. It’s my staff pick at work this month! Click here to read his blog post about the addendum and download Insubordinate.
