STARS ABOVE – because THE LUNAR CHRONICLES can’t end!


 Holy glob glob!!  There’s a new book coming out in THE LUNAR CHRONICLES series.

I am sooo doing a happy dance.  I didn’t want this series to end, and even though the author wrapped up the story in this nice, beautiful package we came to know and love as WINTER, I want to know more. This has got to be my favorite series. I didn’t think I would fall in love with it when I first started reading CINDER, but this easily surpassed Cassandra Claire’s Mortal Instrument series.

STARS ABOVE will be the ultimate ‘fill in’ book.  According to the blurb on Goodreads:

The universe of the Lunar Chronicles holds stories—and secrets—that are wondrous, vicious, and romantic. How did Cinder first arrive in New Beijing? How did the brooding soldier Wolf transform from young man to killer? When did Princess Winter and the palace guard Jacin realize their destinies?

With nine stories—five of which have never before been published—and an exclusive never-before-seen excerpt from Marissa Meyer’s upcoming novel, Heartless, about the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland, Stars Above is essential for fans of the bestselling and beloved Lunar Chronicles.

Guess where I’m going to be on Feb. 2?  2 1/2 week is right around the corner. Agggghhh. Such torture!!

Will you be reading???  Leave me a note in the comments.

Happy August!


Wow, I can’t believe half the year is gone.  5 months to Christmas.  Ugh.  Don’t get me wrong…I LOVE Christmas holidays.  All the cooking and the parties and the wine.  I hate the gift giving because I have no money to even buy stuff to make gifts.  I do have my Amulet of Ormisez coming out in December in the Make Believe Anthology on December 3.  Now that would be a good Christmas present, huh?

As to what’s going on now…I finished reading two books in the last week: Cinder and A Monster Calls.  Reviews will be coming soon but may I say right now I really, really enjoyed Cinder and A Monster Calls left me a crying, blithering mess.  I’ll explain all that when I do my review in a few days.

Today, I’m beta reading a query for a writer buddy.  I suck at queries. I don’t know how much help I’ll be, but I’ll try to work some sort of magic.

Also, the lovely Julie Catherine has tagged me in a post called Work in Progress Challenge.  I will post this tomorrow and tag a few others to post along with me.  I owe CB Wentworth a post – she tagged me with something a week or so ago and I need to answer it.

Don’t forget to enter for your chance to win a paperback copy of Crux by Julie Reece.  All you have to do is follow my blog and answer 3 questions about Thor.  Why Thor? Well, because I thought it was appropriate since Julie’s book centers around Nordic mythology.  (Psst…you really need to read it.  Crux is awesome.  Tell everyone.)  Winner will be announced on August 3. Good luck!

Oh, I almost forgot to mention…I have a digital copy of a signed Make Believe book cover for everyone who leaves a comment on my blog today.  Just let me know what’s on your mind and I’ll e-mail you one of these little beauties to print out, set as a wallpaper, sleep with, drool over…whatever you want.

Isn’t it beautiful?  And it can all be yours if you talk to me.  🙂

Okay, that’s it for today.  See ya tomorrow, same time, same bat channel.
