new books, giveaways....etc.

Between All Things Urban Fantasy, and Tynga's Reviews there are quite a few

very good books being offered for giveaways through the

month of June - until July 4th. Most of

giveaways are open to all, although there are a few open to Canada only, etc. Go to this page to see a complete list of giveaways. Both blogs are interesting blogs to read, with lots of author interviews and fun content. And I like Tynga's name. Tynga!

Some of the books that I'm looking forward to are Kitty Goes To War (of course! love Carrie Vaughn) and Black Dust Mambo by Adrian Phoenix. Ms Phoenix wrote the trilogy with A Rush of Wings . Black Dust Mambo is the start of a new series by her. I read an excerpt, and OH BOY! Two new-to-me authors are Marcia Colette, who has actually had a few e-books published and Kasey McKenzie, who is writing about Furies, as in the legendary Furies.

Unrelated to the givaways, is a new cover for Karen Mahoney's upcoming novel The Iron Witch. Karen Mahoney has had a short story (Falling To Ash) featured in the anthology Eternal Kiss (YA). I read it and it's a very good short story. So good, that I'm waiting kind of impatiently for her first novel to be released (February 2011 for U.S. shoppers). According to a blurb in All Things Urban Fantasy, the bottle in the girl's hand has something to do with the story.... More info on Karen Mahoney's books and short stories are on her bookpage.
This is a taste of what we have to look forward to in the coming months.
