Author News:
If you are wanting detailed reporting on author and book news, you should check out and Literary Escapism. I think these two websites are the best author blog reporters around the blogosphere. 
Interesting Tidbits:
  • VampChix has a great list of vampire new releases for the month October.
  • Speaking of vampires, check out this baby fang pacifier I found over at Geekologie. For $7 it's all yours and it's available at I guess baby can have his own set of teeth for Halloween. Too funny!
  • Juno release a free Halloween ebook treat, Scary Fairies: Four Fearful Tales of the Fey.
    The Child That Went With the Fairies by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
    The Adventure of Cherry of Zennor by Robert Hunt
    Ethna the Bride by Lady Francesca Speranza Wilde
    Tamlane and Tam Lin by John Joseph and Anonymous
  • All Things Urban Fantasy has a great character profile on Mercy Thompson from Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson series.
  • If you live in or near Pittsburgh, PA and haunted houses are your thing, you may want check out The Scarehouse. This year's theme is Steampunk. I wish I lived close enough to go, it looks like it would be a blast.

I am so looking forward to the arrival of my copies of Shadowfae en Deep Kiss Of Winter!! Okay, let's be honest here...I'm a junkie in front of my mailbox hoping to get me fix today with the arrival of these two books ;)

Would love to get my hands on Shadowfae!

I didn't realize Deep Kiss of Winter was HB...not sure if I will get it right away since I don't read G. Showalter.

Thanks for my contest mention :)

Lea said...

Wow, awesome post full of great links Donna! Thank you for all your time.

I won Hush, Hush, at Teddyree's blog maybe I'll forego the review given so many already have expressed their thoughts. I'm looking forward to the read though!

Have a good day!
