Finally, some books are starting to roll in at the library. It’s been a slow summer for books so far (which has been good because I’ve been writing more than reading). My hold list is also filling up with fall releases. Yay!
The big news from the author front this week is that there will be a cover reveal for Avenging Fate happening later this weekend! Stay tuned because this cover is awesome! Once the cover reveal happens, pre-orders will go live on Amazon and I’ll have that information for you ASAP.
In other news, I’ll be capping off my Christmas in July celebrations with some flash giveaways over on my Facebook page. You never know when I’ll strike, so stick close if you want a chance to win some fun prizes.
- Star Wars Aftermath: Life Debt, by Chuck Wendig. This is another story set between the end of Return of the Jedi and Force Awakens. It continues the story that began in Aftermath, released last fall. I didn’t love Aftermath, so I’m hoping that this one improves. It wasn’t that the story was bad, it was more that I missed any familiar characters. I don’t like change, so getting into this new Star Wars universe is taking some doing.
- Lassoing the Sun: A Year in America’s National Parks, by Mark Woods. This is one of those, “Man is burned out on modern life so takes his family on a road trip to find togetherness and happiness,” books. Despite the cheesiness of the premise, I seem to gravitate toward these books, probably because, like everyone else, I harbor dreams of chucking everything and taking off. That this one covers the national parks is interesting to me, especially just coming off the 100th anniversary celebrations for the park system.
- Welcome to the Goddamn Ice Cube : Chasing Fear and Finding Home in the Great White North, by Blair Braverman. As hot as it’s been, I figured that a book about living in the colder climates would be welcome. This book cover’s the authors attempts to become tougher and learn more about herself by living in such a harsh environment. Therapy by freezing… Interesting thought.
