I'm heading off to a romance writers meeting this weekend and looking forward to it - nothing like hanging out with book people. But, before I go, I have a couple of cool things for you.
First up, fellow Knight Agency author Jennifer St. Giles has just hit the USA Today Bestseller list. Go Jennifer! To celebrate, the agency is giving away several copies of her books. You have till Monday to enter.
Second, I've got another interesting OOTB tour book for you. Details below! (FYI for the writers out there - this is one of the releases from Dorchester's new Shomi line).
MOONGAZER by Marianne Mancusi
Dorchester, August 2007
Imagine every night entering a nightmare world you can't escape and being told your life is a dream. Skye Brown has it all: the cool job, the hot boyfriend, the apartment on New York's Upper West Side. But lately she can't enjoy any of it. She's having dreams of a post-apocalyptic world. Of a bleak futuristic wasteland. Of a struggle against oppression. And she's been told she's a...
But what is that? And what is reality? In her dreams, she's not Skye Brown at all, but Mariah Quinn. In her dreams there's Dawn, the beautiful yet haunted soldier, and Skye is but the empty shell of a girl he once loved. And there was a betrayal, a great betrayal. Ripped between Dark Siders and club kids, the mundane and the mystic, Skye must discover who she is, what she wants and who wants her. And why. But in the glow of the moon, it's not always easy to recognize the face in the mirror.
