Nell’s Gossip and Sunday Book Hunt 1/8/17
Welcome to One Book Two. I love gossip and what gossip is any better than book or author gossip? Normally, I’m not one to go around spreading rumors, so be sure you listen close the first time.
This Weeks Gossip:
**It’s amazing what authors do for us readers. Charlaine Harris wrote a series that turned into a HBO top rated show. Now I hear through the grape vine that it’s POSSIBLY POSSIBLE that Craig Schaefer‘s Daniel Faust series may be turned into a TV show too. That would be ever so cool. Also, on the Craig Schaefer horizon will be the release of the next Harmony Black called Glass Predator on March 28, 2017. I know I’ve told you this before, but the next step in the story is that the paper backs are now being printed and the audio book is being recorded. Woot!! Exciting news, that. One last thing to mention in Craig Schaefer-dom, there will be a new release of the next Daniel Faust sometime around May or June (tentatively named Surface Tension) – nothing totally solid yet as Schaefer’s people talk to publishing people’s assistant’s people who then pass it along the publisher’s assistant and then on to the publisher. You know how it goes.
**Tiny little blip here… Faith Hunter announced a couple of days ago that there will be a total of 14 Jane Yellowrock books and 5 Soulwood books. Cold Reign, JY #11 will be released May 2, 2017. JY #12 will be called Dark Queen and Flame in the Dark, Soulwood #3 will be released sometime in 2017.
**J.P. Sloan did not fall off the face of the Earth. Nearly two years have passed since the second in the Dark Choir series was released, but as of December 19, 2016, The Curse Mandate, book #3 was set loose in the wild. Oh, no worries, it’s on my list to read. The cover is so good looking it was impossible to pass up. Here is One Book Two’s reviews of The Curse Merchant and The Curse Servant.
**Next up is another fave author of mine – Rob Blackwell. He changed the cover of his first Soren Chase novel, The Forest of Forever. Here’s my review of The Forest of Forever. I thought the book was brilliant. It started out like a college kids horror flick, but it was much more substantial and was very well put together. Anyway, back to the cover. I think the new cover practically emotes the story. If you’ve read the book, just one look at the cover will make you go “oh, yeah…” I like the Soren Chase character and although book #2, The Pretender, ended with a bit of a cliffhanger, I didn’t hold it against Mr. Blackwell. I should have since you all know how I dislike cliffhangers, but I didn’t. Also, he’s going to release Soren’s next book, The Woman in the White Mask. If you get a move on, you might be able to finish all of Rob Blackwell‘s Soren Chase books before the latest book is released on January 30, 2017.
**Another favorite is Darynda Jones Charley Davidson. Now, Darynda really needs to do us Grimlets a favor. See the boot chain on the cover of 11th Grave in Moonlight? She needs to put them in her online store. That way whenever I take a step I can think of the decadent and delish Reyes Alexander Farrow. Oh, by the way, 11th Grave is much anticipated around the One Book Two offices as it will be released on January 24, 2017. Woot!!
