So, two things in the BREAKING NEWS department, one you might have heard of already, one you might not have.
First, friend of the blog Leigh Bardugo announced the full titles of all three books in her “Grisha” trilogy earlier this week on her blog. They are:
Book 1: “Shadow and Bone”
Book 2: “Siege and Storm”
Book 3: “Ruin and Rising”
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m pretty excited for the next two books! You can read my review of book 1 here, and be sure to pick it up when it drops on June 5th in North America (other places, check with your local bookseller). She’s also running a contest here where you can win some limited edition swag for “Shadow and Bone”! So go check it out.
Now, for news item number two:
Randi Black, author of the awesome “Miss World” will be giving away free kindle copies of her book through Amazon US Friday, May 25, 2012 through Saturday May 26, 2012. You can click this link and it will you take right to the order page. Also, “Miss World” has a new cover! And guess who made it?
That’s right! Me. I made it. So: any other indie authors that need a new cover for the book? I’m your man (well, girl) for the job. You can contact me at usagiko at gmail dot com for more details.
Those who want paperback copies of “Miss World” might have to wait a little longer, though, as we get our new cover issues straightened out with the publisher. But stay tuned! When new copies are available, I’ll announce it here. But until then, you can get your free kindle copy tomorrow and Saturday, and you can read my review of “Miss World” here.
You can look forward to an upcoming interview with Leigh – it’ll be up in mid-June during the UK book tour of “Shadow and Bone”. It’s going to be awesome, so stay tuned!
