Sunday Post Meme

I found the Sunday Post Meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer and decided to participate. This sounds like a fun activity for a Sunday...kind of like reading the Sunday paper. 









News I found from around the Internet:


The Science Fiction/Fantasy Daily Deal today:


I read this book in January and wrote about it on my blog. God Save the Queen by Kate Locke is really good and today it's only $1.99. If you use a Kindle and like fantasy buy it today!!


A few things about favorite authors:

From the Ilona Andrews blog:

Andrews/Gordon Ink Two

The husband-and-wife writing team of Ilona Andrews and Andrew Gordon have signed two deals, with different houses. Agent Nancy Yost, at Nancy Yost Literary, handled both agreements. In the first, Yost signed the pair up to continue their Kate Daniels at Ace Books series for mid six figures, with Anne Sowards acquiring world English rights. In the second deal, also for mid six figures, Yost sold world rights for the first three books in a new series to Erika Tsang at Avon. Yost said the Avon series will be set in a world controlled by “modern Medici-like dynasties with paranormally enhanced abilities.”

The new series sounds good and I'm so glad they will continue the Kate Daniels books, too.  I enjoy their books and stories so much! Congratulations to both of them. A new Kate Daniels book is set to come out at the end of July.


When I was looking at Sharon Lee's blog for a blog post I wrote on Friday I discovered there are going to be more books in this series! I loved this book and wanted more after I read it, but at that time when I visited Sharon Lee's Carousel Tides blog she didn't mention more books. However, now the second book Carousel Sun was turned in to the publisher in February 2013 and Sharon Lee is working on the third and last book in the series.

I loved Archer's Beach and could relate to it since I've spent some time at the Maine coast. My husband's sister and brother-in-law live in Waterville, Maine (fairly close to where Sharon Lee and her husband Steve Miller live, I think). I read the Liad Universe books Sharon Lee and Steve Miller write together and love those, too.


I visited  Sharon Shinn's website and discovered there will be a sequel to Troubled Waters. I like her books so much. You can also find t-shirts showing blessings from Troubled Waters. Such a good writer and I'm always on the lookout for more of her books.

On my blog this week I hope to write at least two posts:

  • Top Ten Tuesday post (sponsored by the Broke and the Bookish blog ) about the top ten books I recommend the most.
  • A book review of a new author I've read.
What are you up to this week...on your blog or in real life?!?
