(Image taken from here) I just wanted to let you know about Michele Lang‘s Netherwood (25th April 2008), as it may have slipped through the cracks. You can purchase it here.
There’s a new sheriff in town…and her name is Talia Fortune. Her mission: capture the cyber outlaw, Kovner, a man who knows she is more than just a sheriff – Talia is also a woman, with a woman’s desires. Scion of the Fortune family and primary shareholder of the mega-conglomerate FortuneCorp, she is the Hand of Fate…or at least of the Home Office. With the power to punish, she’s been sent to Fresh Havens – a corporate off-world colony run by her uncle. But the colony is full of hidden danger. Sabotage, deception, destruction…it will take every ounce of Talia’s strength and courage, fighting skills honed in the Amphitheatre and knowledge learned at the Academy, just to survive. Her ability to love and trust will be sorely tested, especially in the clutches of her quarry, the Outlaw of Fresh Havens, her cyber-lover and now her enemy. He and the answers lie in the Gray Forest, in a reality beyond the bubbledome, the Grid, and everything she’s ever known. Her future lies in…Netherwood.
Just received info for the humorous horror anthology, Blood Lite (21st October 2008). You can preorder it here.

My pal Atrain stumbled across a cover with the same cover art as that of Stacia Kane‘s Personal Demons. Have a looksy here.
My Reading Wishlist has been completely updated with new titles and release dates. It always seems to get longer, no matter how many books I read 😉
I guess I’m going to be called Atrain till I change my facebook name back, eh?
On that note, yay for being linked to your blog. 🙂
I wasn’t crazy about Netherwood – it had a very western feel to it. I love the other Shomi books that I’ve read, though. I just got in my Razor Girl arc today and have both Hidden and Countdown on my to be reviewed shelf as well.
Popin’s not a proper name. Not that Atrain is either, but I prefer it 😉
You can has Razor Girl?! *jealousy fit*
Have a lovely day! 🙂
