Things are finally starting to slow down for me. I was doing a lot of traveling there for a couple months...a lot for me, anyway. I think I've traveled more in the past year than the whole rest of my life combined. Anyway, it's time to start catching up.
Also, Alafair Burke's Duffer Awards are still going on, so be sure to check each day and cast your votes. Leave comments for your chance to win prizes!
The first Shelf Awareness for Readers came out on Friday. If you didn't catch it, you can see it here and sign up to have it e-mailed to you. It'll come twice a week: Tuesdays and Fridays. It's a great source of book information for consumers.
Another great source of book info is out xuni.com Facebook page. Have you been by to "like" us? I keep thinking about all the trouble it's getting me into. I've added to my TBR list and the great stuff just keeps on coming. A good example is THE GENESIS KEY by James Barney or TOMORROW RIVER by Lesley Kagen. Not to mention Boyd Morrison and Will Lavender and Chris Mooney...and then there are the reminders about Michael Koryta and Sophie Littlefield and Brad Parks and Lee Child and John Connolly. See, it's kind of a one-stop shopping for amazing crime writers. But there's also a lot of young adult authors as well. There's never a shortage of great stuff to discover with xuni authors, so check us out!
The Watery Grave Invitational short story contest hosted by Naomi over at The Drowning Machine blog has announced winners. Some excellent short stories were submitted. Be sure to check them out and congratulate the winners!
That's about it for this post. I'm hoping to be back later today to share some snippets from events I've been attending lately. I'll see you then! Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there and happy reading to everyone!
