Have New Books. Will Share

May 6, 2014

So it just occurred to me that as fascinating as you probably find all my ramblings about blog passwords and crazy contests, this could also be a great place to tell you about some amazing new books.

IN THE SHADOWS by Kiersten White and Jim Di Bartolo. A spellbinding story of love, mystery, and dark conspiracy, told in an alternating narrative of words and pictures.

What?? Does that mean it’s TWO stories?? Why yes, yes it is! There are two, separate but related stories – one told through words and one told through pictures – that come together in a spectacular conclusion. This book is not to be missed.

At the complete other end of the spectrum from dark and creepy (but amazing), so maybe not the complete opposite since this is amazing too, we have MAGGIE MALONE AND THE MOSTLY MAGICAL BOOTS by Jenna McCarthy and Carolyn Evans.

So I’m super duper excited about this one (I mean, I’m excited about all my books but I’m about to tell you specifically why I’m excited about this one) because this is my first middle grade book!!! And that means it is the first book of mine that my 8yo got to read. And my 10 yo niece. We are all having so much fun with the kickoff book in the Maggie Malone series.

Maggie’s boots let her step into the life of someone else for the day, so we have a blast talking about whose life they would step into. FYI when my 8yo first read it, he said Peyton Manning (pre superbowl debacle) or else Magnus Carlsen. But now that he’s watching The Voice with us, I think he wants to be Carson Daly. Not even one of the singers. Go figure.

And at the complete opposite end of the spectrum (wait, the spectrum here is obviously a triangle. I get it now), we have Tawna Fenske’s latest romantic comedy, FRISKY BUSINESS. I can’t think of another author whose books make me laugh like Tawna’s do. And even Kirkus wrote about her and FRISKY BUSINESS saying, “up-and-coming romance author Fenske sets up impeccable conflict and sizzling sexual tension.”

I highly suggest you go visit a wildlife sanctuary in real life. But in the meantime, pick up a copy of FRISKY BUSINESS and let the good times begin.

OK, I thought I could do covers too. Let me see if I can manage it. Oh man, oh man. I need to go back to blogger school. Can’t get the covers on. At least not in any kind of timely fashion. The sequels could all be out by the time I manage it.

Actually, Only Maggie Malone has a sequel (and even a book 3), but that’s not the point. The point is, just go to Amazon or BN.com and order a copy. You’ll see the cover there. Or of course walk into your local store and buy a copy.

Hey, tell me in the comments, when was the last time you visited a physical bookstore?

  1. Thanks for all those wonderful suggestions. “In the Shadows” and “Frisky Business” (love the tongue and cheek title-nod to Risky business), sound right up my alley!

    There was a blizzard in the Great Lakes area on my birthday last January. The good news is, my children and I were far enough north to get stranded in the Traverse Bay area of Michigan. It was actually too dangerous in the lower regions to go home, so we spent the week stranded on vacation. We went Books A Million and spent an entire day (and almost a million dollars) in Traverse City. And the next day we visited my most favorite city on earth, Leland, MI and spent a whole afternoon in locally owned Leelanau Books. I got lots of posters and maps to frame for my walls at home. Some of these were really cool, drawn by local artists for local wine, food and art festivals.We even found a rare original copy of The Lorax. 😉
