SF/F Links of Interest & Giveaways 6/10/09

Guess what? I'm was interviewed by Jo over at Ink and Paper. Every Wednesday, Jo interviews and features fantasy book blogs from around the blogosphere. If your interested, here is the book blogger interview she did with me.

Author News:
  1. Karen Marie Moning put up on her blog the final-final cover for Dreamfever. They made the cover darker, no sun shining through the cloads, the model's top now has straps and she is now standing on the ledge. I like it. Here is the previous final cover if you would like to compare for yourself.
  2. Ann Aguirre has written one of the most touching love letters I have ever read to her husband for their anniversary. She has such a wonderful way with words. [heavy sigh]
  3. Gena Showalter and Deidre Knight are having a KISS & SEDUCE Party all week long over at Gena's blog. So if you didn't already know, head over there now, tons of fun and prizes to be had!
Interesting Tibits:
  1. Did you know they are talking about making a new Heavy Metal movie? I personally think that would awesome, I'm pretty excited about it. Here is a write up that Suvudu did on the talks for the new movie.
  2. SciFiGuy.ca has a very informative review up on Locus Magazine's special issue on Urban Fantasy.
  3. Dargue Reviews has a review up for Skinwalker by Faith Hunter, this review had me go ahead and pre-order this book. I love the "last of their kind" themed books.
  4. SciFiChick.com has a first look up of the CW's Vampire Diaries. I wonder why they made Elena a brunette, instead of blond like she was in the book?
  5. There's a new book review blogger in town and he goes by Patrick. Go by his blog Preternatural Reviews, check out his blog and say hi!

Hi Donna,

You know, last month or so when you posted one of these posts with contests, I entered for a chance to win a copy of the new World of Warcraft book for my son, and I won! I've been meaning to thank you for collecting these contests. I would never have known about that one otherwise!

Thank you!

Donna said...

Amy, I'm so happy you won! Yay!!! I bet your son is happy about it. :) I figured as I read my reader & spot contests and items that are interesting, I'd share. Glad to know you were able to get something from it.
