Friday Evening Stops


It's still just the first week in January and already all kinds of things are going on around the blogosphere. It's these kinds of things that remind me it's okay that the holidays are over and good things will certainly come this year. Starting with these three:

First off, I wanted to be sure to point out that today is the last day to download Magic Gifts--the free Kate Daniels novella that Ilona Andrews gave as a Christmas gift to the fans. Best idea in the world, if you ask me. I've read it and loved it and you will, too. So scoot on over and download it before it's gone!

Next up, I would be remiss if I didn't direct you to the screamingest Kindle book deal around. Linda Gillard's fabulous Emotional Geology is now available on Kindle for a mere 99 cents! This is my favorite of all of Linda's wonderful books. Previously out of print, you do not want to miss this one. My review here.

Lastly, I'm going to be taking part in an exciting event in just a couple weeks. Chachic's Book Nook is hosting The Queen's Thief Week as a way of celebrating and spreading the word on that wonderful series. I had my own meltdown over its awesomeness almost exactly two years ago now, and the awe has yet to fade. I'll be guest posting (along with several other awesome authors and bloggers), so be sure to check it out then. 

Have a good weekend!

    Yay, thanks for spreading the word about the Queen's Thief week, Angie! I'm really excited about it and can't wait to see what you guest posters will write. It's just two weeks away! Also, I loved Magic Gifts as well. I think it was a great Christmas gift from Ilona and Gordon. Will spread the word about the Emotional Geology ebook.

  2. Wow, getting very bummed about all the books that seem to be on the kindle but not the nook. Seriously.

  4. Angie, thanks for the heads-up about Emotional Geology! Linda kindly mailed a copy of Star Gazing to me, and I just finished it at the end of the year. I need to review it, and then I'm going to dive right into Emotional Geology.

    Also, Chachic's event is a perfect reason for me to finally read Megan Whalen Turner's books! Hooray!

  6. I actually searched for Linda Gillard's books on Kindle a while ago, and bought them all based on your reviews. Truly a great deal on Emotional Geology! Still must read them...and Magic Gifts as well. But I like knowing there are lovely books awaiting me.

  7. Just downloaded EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY. Another virtual royalty check should be coming your way. :)

  8. Thanks for the downloads, people. As an author I owe so much to Angie's blog! :-)

    It proves (if proof were needed) that what sells books isn't clever marketing campaigns or celebrity status but reader enthusiasm.

    Hooray for book blogs and bloggers!

  9. Great links Angie! I just bought EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY -- I've been wanting to pick it up and really, you can't beat $.99!

On Angie, the Relative Scarcity Thereof

I've been a bit scarce round these parts of late and I feel badly about it. But there is a good reason and I've been waiting until today to share it with you. Just so I could include one rather pertinent detail. It's a boy! Fortunately I'm at the point where I'm starting to feel better, so things should soon start resembling business as usual around here. I, for one, am relieved.

Forever Blog Tour + Giveaway!

I'm awfully excited to be a part of this unique blog tour in celebration of the release of Forever by the insanely talented Maggie Stiefvater .  Scholastic recently launched an online community called  This Is Teen  to connect readers with their favorite YA authors and books. Visit their page on   Facebook   for all the latest news on   Maggie Stiefvater   and   Forever .  Each stop on the tour is hosting a particular character from the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy, and I have the good luck to be the stop for Sam--my favorite emo-wolfboy!  Sam is so very endearing, in a decidedly non-angsty or overt way. His breathtaking blend of maturity and vulnerability tugs at my heartstrings and the strength of his relationship with Grace is unswerving.  He is warm and thoughtful and artistic, and I liked him right from the start of the series . Because I can't resist, here are two of my favorite Sam quotes, the first from Grace's point of view in  Shiver and the second from Sam&
