2008 Authors and Other Stuff

I spent some time tonight doing some much-needed organization. I went through all the debuts that I've showcased since the beginning of the year and added a bunch of authors to my Google Reader. I also went to Amazon and created a Listmania list, which I hope to fill with every author I showcase. Right now, I just have a couple dozen books in it from 2007.

I've been trying to read Seekers of the Chalice, but I'm afraid I have not gotten past the first chapter, which appears to be a history. Then, I was tempted away from that by Sandra McDonald's second novel, The Stars Down Under. I've finished Elom and will have that review up in a day or so.

I have two interviews lined up and hope to be able to start posting them next week. In the meantime, I'm going to showcase some of my fellow reviewer's reviews so you can see some other points of view. There were so many authors who debuted in the past few months that all the names sort of blurred together in my mind. Therefore, the next few weeks will focus on authors who have debuted since the beginning of the year.

UPDATE!

Lisa Nevin added this comment a few posts down, and I thought it was worth sharing here. It's regarding Lisa Shearin's Armed and Magical:

"For those picking up a copy, Lisa asked on her website/blog for people to buy them from Barnes & Noble. Actually, you can order an autographed copy, NO shipping, from the B&N that hosted her kickoff party. See her blog/website for details."
