Welcome to this week's good news...

BOOK COVERS & RELEASE DATES

Amanda Ashby has a new YA paranormal, Demonosity,  coming out with Puffin on August 15th!

An ancient myth + a mean girl + a reluctant warrior = a lively take on good vs. evil
The Black Rose–a powerful ancient force–has been let loose and has taken up residence in Celeste Gibson, popular girl at Cassidy Carter-Lewis’ high school. Thomas Delacroix is the spirit of a fourteenth-century knight who is devoted to protecting the Black Rose, but he needs a contemporary living being to take on the challenge. That’s where Cassidy comes in. She’s a quirky high school junior who just wants to dress in her vintage clothes, hang out with her best friend, and take care of her father, who is recovering from surgery. She’s the last person who would ever volunteer for such a task, but no one actually asked her.  Now, like it or not, she finds herself training before dawn and battling demons at parties, the mall, and even at school. But hey, no one ever said high school was going to be easy. . .


Mel Teshco's Hot Down Under short story, Silver Moon, is out with Momentum on November 1st!

Kristen Treymore isn't living anymore – she's existing.
Trapped in marriage to Jack, an alcoholic who uses his fists to communicate, Kristen has given up her freedom in an attempt to protect his daughter.
When Conrad Doyle, childhood friend and the man whose heart she unwittingly broke, shows up on Kristen's doorstep and offers her a lifeline, she can't refuse.
What she never dreams possible is how much she still wants him—but is that enough to keep them together when terror still beats deep in her heart?

Room with a View is Kylie Scott's Hot Down Under short story and it also comes out with Momentum on November 1st! This story is a short set in the same post-apocalyptic world as Kylie's debut release, Flesh.

Angus had been a miracle. Twenty-three years old and gorgeous he had appeared like Romeo from the pool area and thrown supplies up to her balcony. But now Angus is gone – he has abandoned her, which is probably for the best. She couldn’t stand to watch him die too.
Stranded four floors up and fenced in on all sides by the infected, food and water supplies are running as low as Natalie’s spirits. A lingering death from starvation seems inevitable.
But then she sees Angus striding for the pool gate with a sawn-off shotgun in his hands. Can he make it past the infected to reach her? And what will it mean if he does?



CONTESTS

C.T.Green's just received her finalist button for the 2012 Northwest Houston Lone Star Contest (in which her entry placed 2nd). Nifty!

Congrats!




REVIEWS

A review for Kylie Scott's Flesh from Maryse Book Blog.
"Flesh in every sense of the word. A fast, fun, and occasionally frenzy-inducing read, but what made this one click for me, was the intense personal connection. Especially in the beginning. In fact, I “felt” it so quickly, that I let y’all know in a pre-review that I was really enjoying this one, and I already knew Flesh was worthy of recommending. It captured me right from the start, and Daniel did not disappoint."
