I don't normally blog on Sundays, but I thought for October it would be nice to add a little promo for friends of mine, as I have had a number of blogger friends with book releases this fall and I haven't paid them proper attention.
Today I thought I'd feature RaShelle Workman's Exiled. RaShelle has been a blogger buddy for a long time and I know enough about her style that I really look forward to her book. Here is the blurb from Goodreads:
Now she wants revenge.
First she’s got to get home. But before she can return to Kelari, the Gods have commanded her to help an arrogant boy named Michael find his soul mate.
Only she doesn't know the first thing about love.
Rather quickly, her inexperience with human emotion is obscured by other matters—alien-controlled psychotic teens that are out to kill her, and a government group that is set on capturing and dissecting her.
Worst of all, Venus will suffer a painful death-by-poisoning, thanks to Earth’s atmosphere, if she remains on the planet longer than one week.
Still, Venus is a Princess and she's got a plan. Surely, with her help, Michael will fall in love with a human.
But time is running out and Michael is falling for the wrong girl—her.
The publication date is 11/11/11 (how would you LOVE that for the date for your first book?!) And she is working on promotion with another couple great authors (See Dark C.A.R.M.A. here). They are doing a giveaway and promo stuff, by the way, so you should go check them out and maybe you'll win one of these! I think this sounds like a great read and wish RaShelle (and the lot of them) a ton of luck.
Everybody keep your eyes open for this one!
In other news:
My fitness stuff is going well. We made Month #1 in our Couch to 5K plan—we are going slower than the published workout, but we are also walking the days we don't do the interval training, so slower but more... I figure that is a beneficial trade. And in my Weight Watchers stuff, I have TWO days on weigh ins... I started on a Thursday, so that is really the weekmark, but online keeps track on Sunday, so I had a weigh in today. I've officially lost 8 pounds. (2.5 weeks in)
So there. I hope you all have a fabulous Sunday!
