So, I met David Morrell at RT. Twice. Actually chatted with him in line for a little while and didn’t make a doofus of myself the second time.
David Morrell wrote FIRST BLOOD…Rambo, guys. He created Rambo!
I got a copy of THE BROTHEDHOOD OF THE ROSE and pretty much gobbled it down.
It’s awesome. If you read outside romance, check it out.

So I’m spreading the love. I have this book. I want to share the love. Because I love this author and you should, too.
In the Provincial Union of Victoriana, a steampunk America that lost the Revolutionary War, Charmian “Kit” Kittredge makes her living investigating crimes of magic. While Kit tries to avoid the nobs of high society, she follows mysteries wherever they lead.
Unlike most folks, Kit doesn’t believe in magic, but she can’t refuse to help Lady Diana Walsh, who claims a curse is viciously wounding her while she sleeps. As Kit investigates the Walsh family, she becomes convinced that the attacks are part of a more ominous plot—one that may involve the lady’s obnoxious husband.
Sleuthing in the city of Rumsen is difficult enough, but soon Kit must also skirt the unwanted attentions of a nefarious deathmage and the unwelcome scrutiny of the police chief inspector. Unwilling to surrender to either man’s passion for her, Kit struggles to remain independent as she draws closer to the heart of the mystery. For the truth promises to ruin her life—and turn Rumsen into a supernatural battleground from which no one will escape alive.

Want a copy? I’m giving away a couple… how many depends on how many entries I get between now and Friday (probably Friday night). To enter, just leave the name of an author you want more people to read.
I just started it last night and if I didn’t have
willpower deadlines, I’d be doing nothing but reading today.
I’ve talked with the author briefly on twitter, met him at Confusion and he’s pretty cool. I’ve been meaning to read his book and after I met him, bumped it on my list. Now I should regret not reading it sooner.
If it’s SF. If that’s not your thing, read it anyway. How many times have I pushed the Stardoc books on people?
When out-of-shape IT technician Roen woke up and started hearing voices in his head, he naturally assumed he was losing it.
He now has a passenger in his brain – an ancient alien life-form called Tao, whose race crash-landed on Earth before the first fish crawled out of the oceans. Now split into two opposing factions – the peace-loving, but under-represented Prophus, and the savage, powerful Genjix – the aliens have been in a state of civil war for centuries. Both sides are searching for a way off-planet, and the Genjix will sacrifice the entire human race, if that’s what it takes.
Meanwhile, Roen is having to train to be the ultimate secret agent. Like that’s going to end up well…
I’ve done reading lately… I can’t seem to get enough books in. I think I’ve read like a dozen in the past month. These are a few of them and they’ve all been good. I’m reading in snatches at night, missing out on sleep – plus I gorged when I was sick the weekend before Christmas.
Loved this…loved her Black Jewels books so it’s not a surprise I liked this. It’s definitely different from the Black Jewels, but the writing is just as intense.
Larissa, I’m begging you… I need Rev’s story.
Loved Reseph’s story.
This is the first Jaye Wells book I’ve read and it’s not gonna be the last. I need to start her other books. This one rocked.
I love Victoria’s books. They’re hot and fun. I need to get more.
I read this over the weekend.
He was hired to hunt pirates, dealt with sickness, mutiny and overwhelming odds. In the end, though, the people who hired him didn’t want to deal with a mess created by the times and he’s the one who paid.
