Went to the bookstore yesterday for a nonfiction book, and I picked up PEACEKEEPER by Laura E. Reeve as well. It has been a while since I read a current debut, and PEACEKEEPER had the added advantage of being an inexpensive paperback. Plus, I liked the blurb a while back.
Raven will be by in a week or so with some follow-up reviews for Debut Graduates. She'll be able to add a little urban fantasy in the mix, with perhaps even the appearance of a fang or two.
The convention post is still drawing lots of comments. Please feel free to jump into the discussions I've started at the brand new convention blog as well.
Mulluane really has done a fabulous job setting up the new book blogger forum, whimsically named the Dragon Federation. Just go to the home page and dig how cool it is. Both bloggers and readers are welcome.
And if you're a book reviewer, you've really got to go to John's blog and check out the SF/F/H Book Reviewers Database and get on board if your blog qualifies. I'm beginning to think I'm already in some database somewhere. I've started getting review copies from publishers who--as far as I knew--didn't have my address. One was from London! I'll be putting up a book swag post in a few days as a way of thanking those publishers.
Whew! That's a lot of activity in a short amount of time! Everyone must have made New Year's resolutions, or something.
This Thursday, we will have another guest author with another One Year Later post. Except it will be a bit over a year since her debut. Maybe I should rename the series. After the Debut? I'm drawing a blank. This author always is an enthusiastic commenter, so be sure to check out the comments throughout the day.
