books

take a look outside yourself and tell me what you see

Hope everyone had a nice holiday weekend... the weather was gorgeous here, for a switch... BBQed yesterday (Grilled Steak with Spicy Cilantro Sauce). I've spent the last couple days mostly reading. I know this shocks everyone. Two full manuscripts, a handful of outlines, and some partials. Strange how the pile doesn't look that much shorter. Heh. And now I should write all the correspondence such dedication potentially generates, but I have three contracts on my desk to get through first, and they will probably take me a while. *whew*

In other news, Jim Butcher's 2nd novel in the Codex Alera series, Academ's Fury, officially ships today. And, boy, did that Amazon number jump this morning. Along with the paperback edition of the first book, which was released last week. And if that's not enough summer reading for you, then try out some of the other recent releases from those talented people I call clients:
*Scardown - Elizabeth Bear
*Curse the Dark - Laura Anne Gilman
*End in Fire - Syne Mitchell
*Urban Shaman - C.E. Murphy
