REVIEWS


Keri Arthur
A fabulous review for Darkness Unbound over at USA Today's Happily Ever After blog. Here's a snippet:
"Keri Arthur has again blown me away. Her worlds are so complex and "real." By that, I mean her characters are not only intricate, but the plots within plots are constantly overlapping one another. We have a kidnapping attempt, a soul stealing, a stalking reaper, an absentee father, the gates of Hell, magic tattoos and so much more. It's all just as complicated as real life, with the paranormal element thrown in to suspend the reader's disbelief."







Jenny Schwartz
A Clockwork Christmas anthology got a 5 P review from the Phantom Paragrapher, which includes reviewing Wanted: One Scoundrel. Here's a snippet:

"Clockwork Christmas was an amazing anthology and trying to come up with a favourite one was difficult as they each brought something different to the writing deck. We had Crime Wave in A Corset which I loved the chemistry between Coddington and Peabody and of course I could imagine the costumery. We had This Winter Heart which shared the love and bonds of Father and Son , Wanted: One Scoundrel which I loved due to the Australian setting as to me it was close to home type story and finally Far From Broken, had that strong theme of Never giving up and Love Never Dies - the passion that was shared despite all odds between Callie and Jasper and as she came out I felt for her and imagined how hard it would have been - its beyond imaginable the pain, hurt and betrayal she felt."


COVERS & RELEAS DATES

Amanda Ashby
Not only have we got one upcoming cover, nor two, but the three covers in Sophie's Mixed Up Magic series. Wishful Thinking and Under a Spell is due for release June 2012, with Out of Sight due September 2012.

  4. I love Amanda Ashby's covers! They're such fun. And wow, Cathleen! The Lover cover is hot! That's the reason they can't possibly get rid of print books. What would we fan ourselves with after staring at that cover for hours?

    Thanks Eleni for putting this together. My list is growing ...
