Some Book News

  • Liza at Blogging by Liza, also has some spoilers for upcoming books.  Looks like Blay and Qhuinn's book will be happening after Tohr's.  From the blog:                                                         TEAM QHUAY!!!She said it needs to be next after Tohr’s book. 2 things have to happen in Tohr’s book to set it up – Team Qhuay won’t be happy with one of the things that happens. Both must happen for their book to be ready. FYI, this is the first time she called it a book rather than a novella. Not sure if that means we get an actual book, but kind of makes me wonder…                   You can read more here.

  • There's a rumor going around that the Qhuinn and Blay book will be in hardcover.

  • Orbit has posted an early look at some covers for books coming out in 2012.  Once a description has been posted, you'll see many of these show up on my Upcoming 2012 list but for now, check out some pretty covers.  Go ahead, it's art.

  • All this week, Tor.com and Barnes and Noble are co-sponsoring a steampunk book appreciation week.  You can find book recommendations, sweepstakes and blog posts here.

  • Booklamp is a website designed to help readers discover new books.  You put in the name of a book you read and enjoyed and Booklamp will make recommendations based storyline, themes, genres, and writing styles.  Personally, despite a super long TBR pile, I'm always interested in discovering new books so this could come in quite handy.

  • Another good place to check out new books, as well as read the first chapters, is D. Renee Bagby Presents First Chapters.  You can search by authors, publishers, labels, and relationships.  It's a risk free way to dip your toes in before deciding whether a book is worth buying.

  • F. Paul Wilson is ending his very successful Repairman Jack series.  He's at the point where he feels it is time to resolve the long-term story arc or else the series will begin to grow stale.  More here from Wilson on the decision.

  • Orbit will be publishing Gail Carrriger's next adult series in 2013.  Called The Parasol Protectorate Abroad, you can read the announcement here.

  • Abaddon Books is launching a venture for it's Pax Britannia series.  The next two installments will be published as ebooks and the readers will be able to vote on how the wish the series to continue.  Hellnotes has the details.
