Nell’s Gossip and Book Hunt 10/15/17
Welcome to my Sunday book hunt and author gossip. Keep coming back for updates on book releases and news from favorite authors.
- Can you dig it? Carlie is BACK! Yep, Halfway Drowned is out and ready to be read! I’m so excited-this series is so good that once you start, you’ll never stop.
A magical storm. An ancient shipwreck. A hidden evil.
All three are tied together as Carlie must defend Wulfric against his past, which emerges after a raging storm tears across Halfway Lake.
When government agents descend on Halfway to investigate the mysterious shipwreck, Carlie discovers that all is not as it seems.
A thousand years old, the Viking ship holds bones. And secrets.
Not everyone went down with the ship. There were survivors, but they might be less than human. They cross paths with Carlie in a showdown that will bring her own secrets to light, for saving Wulfric came with a cost. Now, it’s time for her to pay.
Dive in with Carlie as she fights to save the one person she can’t lose.
- The next new release is from James A. Hunter. I’m sure I’ve ranted about Yancy Lazarus here before. I swear that in each and every page of any Yancy book you will find quotes that will make you laugh out loud. Yancy’s sense of humor is beyond sarcastic. He is 68 years old and looks 40. He is also called “The Fixer”. Has the series grabbed you yet? No? Ok. Throw in a lot of magic and some really evil bad guys, lots of kicking ass and taking names. This series is one of my absolute favorites. If you prefer to listen instead of read, the narrator in this series is right on target. Charlie Kevin reads the part of Yancy and Savage Prophet, Yancy Lazarus #4, has just been released in audio. HOWEVER, Brimstone Blues, Yancy Lazarus #5, has just been published. You gotta try this series.
Yancy Lazarus—mage, bluesman, and demon-souled—is having the worst hangover of his life.
He just woke up in a dingy hotel in literal Hell with one eye missing, an arm covered in swirling golden tattoos, and no recollection of the past six months.
All he wants is to figure out how he ended up in the Great Below and whether there’s a way home. But getting out of Hell is no easy feat. Yancy is the most wanted man in the Infernal city of Pandæmonium, and he’s being hunted by demonic cutthroats for a series of high-profile murders he can’t remember committing.
Now, Lazarus will have to rely on the help of a shapeshifting stranger with a dark past to battle his way past a legion of freakish Hellions and the murderous Derby-Girl Nation to reclaim a weapon capable of killing even immortals. And to escape Hell? Well, he’ll need to pull off the greatest coup the Abyss has seen since the Morning Star took on Heaven. If he fails, not only will the King of Pandæmonium roast his soul for eternity, but his friends will be left to the mercies of the Savage Prophet and the Morrigan, goddess of death.
- Another favorite author is Lisa Shearin. She writes the SPI Files and the Raine Benares series. She is busily writing and soon SPI Files #5 will be going to editor. The title for #5 is Myth Manifestation and will be released in January 2018. The Ghoul Vendetta released in audio on September 19, 2017 with Johanna Parker as narrator. To tease fans, Ms Shearin released a piece from the Myth Manifestation that she just wrote and gave me permission to reprint it. From her brain waives to your screen.
Kenji and I climbed up and out of the elevator. Standing on top of the elevator car had put the open door waist high on Kenji, chest high on me.
The Dunmor’s maitre d’ made no move to assist us.
Yeah, it was rude. But I couldn’t really blame him.
Our arms and hands were covered in elevator cable grease, and the rest of us was sporting a thin coat of giant snake spit — or whatever it was those things put out to let them wiggle through tight spaces. I told myself it was just spit, and I’d keep telling myself that until I believed it.
While the maitre d’ didn’t help us out of the elevator shaft/snake pit, he was only too happy to call his boss for me. I was sure he’d had plenty of practice finding Rake in his own hotel.
Kenji and I took the opportunity to do what we’d come here to do.
Find that glamoured goblin.
The key to not being questioned anywhere you went was looking like to belonged there. In our present state, it was obvious that Kenji and I did not belong in a restaurant that had been awarded three Michelin stars last year. We fell back to the second key to not being questioned — look like you had every right to be there. We were wearing SPI’s SWAT-lite uniforms, we were armed, and the conference hotel had been sealed in a pocket dimension. We had ourselves a bonafide emergency. Yes, one of my guns was a paint pistol, and Kenji’s weapon was a badge scanner that looked like a Star Trek phaser, but it was all about attitude. And after nearly being enveloped in a nest of giant snakes, I had attitude aplenty.
