Claim to Fame, New Book Deal & Cover Art

Claim to fame: Dorchester Publishing has included part of my review on their page for A. J. Menden’s Tekgrrl. Only a few words, but I’m credited for them 🙂

New book deal: From here: Erica Hayes’s Shadowsong, in which a knife-wielding banshee gangster’s quest for revenge on the assassin who ruined her life is interrupted when a deluded fairy sorceress steals her magical song, again to Rose Hilliard at St. Martin’s, in a two-book deal, by Marlene Stringer of the Stringer Literary Agency (World). And I’m happy to announced I received an ARC of Erica’s first novel, Shadowfae, during the week. I’m looking forward to reading and reviewing it soon 🙂

Cover art: I’ve fallen drastically behind on posting covers. For now, I’m only posting the ones I HAVEN’T seen plastered everywhere, but I don’t follow as many other book blogs as I used to. Sorry in advance if you’ve already seen these, and I’m clogging up your blog feed.

Gemma Malley’s THE RETURNERS; UK Sales for Jeaniene Frost & Caitlin Kittredge

You may remember me fangirlying over Gemma Malley’s The Declaration and The Resistance, which are further evidence that YA futuristic should be the hottest genre around. Good news is that a third novel is due out early 2010:

Gemma Malley
The Returners
Bloomsbury (UK: 1st February 2010)
Buy (UK)

From here:
What happens when your past begins to catch up with you and you don’t like what you see? Will Hodge’s life is a tragic disaster. His mother is dead. He has no friends. And now he thinks he is being followed by a strange group of people who tell him they know him. But Will cannot remember them at all…that is, at first he can’t. And when he does, he doesn’t much like what he can remember. While he is struggling with these unsettling memories, he learns that his past is a lot deeper than that of many other people. He must find out if he is strong enough to handle the implications of this and to break the powerful hold that his history seems to have on him.

Also, Gollancz has bought UK (and hopefully Australian) rights for Jeaniene Frost’s first three Night Huntress novels and Caitlin Kittredge’s first three Nocturne City novels. Look for them in 2010:

Jeaniene Frost: Halfway to the Grave (14th January 2010); One Foot in the Grave (11th February 2010); At Grave’s End (11th March 2010)
Caitlin Kittredge: Night Life (10th June 2010); Pure Blood (8th July 2010); Second Skin (12th August 2010)

Your Result: The Host

You like the Twilight people like trying new things. You’ll like this book because its about a race of aliens taking over the galaxy while still living with the consequences of taking over human bodies and receiving their emotions and things and people they love.

For the record, The Host is the only SM book I’ve read, and I loved it.

Cat with Books

I woke Manny up from his nap for these, which could explain why he’s the most alert in the first one, and then got sleepy again. His reactions:

Laurell K. Hamilton’s Blood Noir: Worth a sniff.

Jeaniene Frost’s One Foot in the Grave: Cuddle up with on the couch.

Jeaniene Frost’s Halfway to the Grave and One Foot in the Grave: Shouldn’t call your character Cat if she’s not actually a feline *grumpy face*

Having never read any of these books yet, I can’t confirm or deny the plausibility of ReviewerCat’s views.
