Star Crossed Cover Art

Here is the very nice cover art for Elizabeth C. Bunce's upcoming sophomore novel--Star Crossed. I got all jumpy when I saw it as I have been really looking forward to this release ever since I went absolutely wild over Bunce's A Curse Dark as Gold. The writing was so stunning, and the reworking of the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale so surprising and pitch-perfect that I vowed to read whatever the woman wrote. Star Crossed features a thief/spy named Digger, a land where magic has been banned, and a rebellion in the works. I simply cannot wait. Star Crossed is due out October 1st.

  6. Mollie, CURSE is lovely and absorbing. I highly recommend it.

    Ladybug, definitely try CURSE. Just a heady debut, IMO.

    Raspberry, it really does. I'd been waiting for news on it and the blurb on her site is tantalizing. :)

    brizmus, I think so too.

    Lenore, it's worth it.

  7. Oh, this so seems up my alley! (Oddly, Amazon has up a different cover. This one is better, I think, and I'm basing that mostly on the font, which I love.) I should probably read CURSE, too - I've heard so many good things about it.

  8. Such a pretty cover! Plus I'm always curious about books that have a thief/spy protagonist, probably because of Gen from the Queen's Thief series.

  10. Can I just tell you that so many of the good books I read these days are because of you? =) lol. I am definitely adding this one to my list because I too loved Curse! =)

  11. Chelle, that's a very odd cover up on Amazon. I posted this one as it's the one Ms. Bunce has up on her website and GoodReads has it up as well. Odd. Also, you really must read CURSE. You will love it. :)

    Chachic, don't we all have a soft spot for thieves now because of Gen? :) I actually have ever since George Cooper--the King of the Thieves from Tamora Pierce's Alanna quartet. *sigh*

    Janssen, lovely news isn't it?

    Camie, you have no idea how happy that makes me! I'm thrilled you're finding ones you enjoy. I knew you loved CURSE and we'll definitely have to compare notes when this one comes out. :)

  12. YAY!

    Thanks so much for posting this, I didn't know that she had another book coming out. I absolutely LOVED Curse and I've been dying to read more by Bunce.

  13. I love rereading my comments to find out how confusing they are! :P I do hope the cover is the one you posted. And...off to get CURSE!

  14. Vanessa, I was thinking of you. It's so exciting!

    Chelle, lol. I can't wait to hear what you think of it.

  15. Fantasy novel + female hero who's also a spy/thief + rebellion = WIN. I'll have to go read Bunce's first book now.

Terms of Endearment

Have you ever been reading a book, moving along quite nicely, and then--bam--a character whips out a particular term of endearment that just yanks you right out of the story? It happened to me recently, and I'm sad to say I couldn't recover. I did try. But she just kept using that term and I . . . I had to get the hell out of Dodge. Buh-bye, story. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. I'm not saying this is the norm (thank goodness). I can put up with a certain amount of treacly back and forth when it comes to the exchange of terms of endearment, especially if they fit the characters, their background, culture, the tenor of their relationship, etc. And the history of these terms at home and from around the world is often fascinating (at times hilarious). But there comes a point where I can't see past the cheese and/or weird anymore and I do not want to be with these people any longer. Shallow? Perhaps. But it's a very individual thing, isn't it?

Interview with Sara Creasy + Children of Scarabaeus Giveaway!

Today is the release day for Sara Creasy's Children of Scarabaeus--the second book in her wonderful Scarabaeus duology. I'm delighted to be celebrating release day with an interview with Ms. Creasy. I picked up Song of Scarabaeusa couple of weeks ago, fell immediately in love, and set about getting my hands on an ARC ofthe sequel as quickly as possible (you can read my reviews here and here). This is the kind of science fiction I love--character-driven and exciting, set against the background of a fully developed and eerily fascinating world. If you haven't had a chance to pick up these books, now is the perfect time. Please welcome Sara Creasy!  First things first: The Covers. I am kind of a fan of Chris McGrath’s covers, and I love the little touches on these two that make them unique to Edie & Finn’s story. Did you have any input on the covers and what was your reaction upon seeing the first one? Isn’t his work amazing? As soon as I found out he was doing my SONG OF S…
