I really enjoyed the first three books of the Greatcoat series, and look forward to reading this one. That second one up needs an editor, surely? I am DYING to read The Prey of Gods. And Midnight at the Electric sounds promising as well. Always wanted to read Short Fition. Anything like Short Fission? Up the Rainbow by Susan Casper Prey of the Gods sounds very cool. And ironically I’d forgotten that Unforgettable was already in my wish list, so I need to get that. I’ve read all of the Innkeeper Chronicles online. Is that a collection of all three in one hardcover? Oh dear, I really feel for whoever missed the typo proofreading for the Susan Casper. Also, some background. I read the first draft of Prey of the Gods, and was pretty damn excellent then. I can imagine it’s gotten even better since. No short fation? Eliza and her monsters. Is it a comedy or a drama? Let us know. Zan Lynx: Yup Do we Sing the Body Electric at Midnight? I’m about to start Tyrant’s Throne. Really looking forward to more Falcio, Kest, and Brasti! Should finish in plenty of time for Our Dark Duet! These are both at the top of my list! Why are they sending you a history book? – The Templars by Dan Jones As per usual I don’t recognise most of the authors, therefore cannot have read anything of theirs. And what is with this 12 books per stack? One recently had thirteen books but two of them were skinny. Do you need to get an extra lens for your camera to fit more books in? Midnight at the Electric.. I’ve been on a Heinlein jag and so I noticed this one b/c of fantasy/sci fi and historical drama thrown together. Plus, gotta love the Okies. (Is a person allowed to say that, these days? Oh well.) The Templars looks interesting. Have added it to the Amazon UK list. A question, if you read this and can answer–is the number of ARCs and new books you’re comped typical of what an author of your status typically receives? Do other authors receive comparable numbers? FL Transplant: I have no idea what anyone else gets. I should note I get the number I do not necessarily because I am an author but because the blog is popular and I have a large social media following. Eric James Stone’s “Unforgettable” was a great story. Fun read, well-executed. I wanted to check Susan Casper’s front cover, to see if the typo is only on the spine or not (morbid curiosity, I know), but couldn’t find it anywhere. Neither Amazon nor Goodreads, not even Fantastic Books, her publisher, displays that cover. My guess is that is an ARC with a plain/generic cover. The actual cover probably hasn’t been decided on yet. Comments are closed.
