FIRST: I KNEW Elizabeth Spann Craig was re-releasing her first Myrtle Clover mystery which had gone out of print AND her third one in the series which hadn't been released first round because of a change in direction by Midnight Ink. But that sneaky sneakster snuck right past me on WHEN!!!
So... Available on Amazon!
So what are you waiting for!? Go buy them!!!
SECOND: I am ALSO at Authors Promoting Authors today talking about the several options BETWEEN Traditional big house publishing and Self-publishing.
And THIRDLY... on Tuesday I promised you a book review of My Fearful Symmetry...
But Cedric's maker has an agenda, and it isn't Cedric's glorification... but Raj's. I felt the details were beautifully done, as was the world drawn of a very old ritual--a culture where 'Adepts' are held in servitude much as I imagine the Geisha--revered in many ways, but whores, nonetheless (and I do know this description demeans Geisha—I don't mean to say a Geisha is a common prostitute... but rather I am trying to elevate the Adept... skilled pleasure bringers... in this case to bring the parties in contact with the goddess). I think the characters, language, and detail of this book are perfect.
It isn't for everybody--the slash romance angle isn't graphic, but is ever-present. It is not 'parts detail' but it is very erotic. But keep in mind neither of those are things I normally go for and I loved this anyway--the underlying story is well developed, very human, and beautifully told.
Note: LAST CHANCE!!! Denise offered to give away a t-shirt that says 'I am an adept of the ancient arts' which if you read her book you will know is QUITE the bragging rights! Very likely to get you all SORTS of propositions, offers of cash and possibly cookies... So... if you WANT to win, just comment, all week long with the phrase 'Kinky Vampire sex' (or if you are a prude you can just say 'I want to win!'). To double your chances, tweet or facebook share Tuesday's or Today's posts that feature Denise and her book! (and let me know... mind reading is not among my skills) [Sadly, she can only ship US and Canada]
