Alien-Filled Friday

It's been a roller coaster ride this week here in Gini Land, and it's not over yet!

First up, As my Hook Me Up! subscribers already know, I insinuated in yesterday's blog, and KB flat out said at the start of yesterday's interview, Babbling About Books has a review of "Touched by an Alien" large and in charge. Head over and show BAB some Alien Collective love! And if you missed yesterday's interview, well, it's not too late to catch up right now.

Speaking of catching up, it's time to check in with The Amber Scott Project about the current status of Project Pay It Forward. Check out the progress and let Amber know what you think of the Project!

Next up, it's preview time at Dark Wyrm Reads. We have it from the Dark Wyrm himself that another review of "Touched by an Alien" will be live there this coming Monday, as well as some other reviews coming. Check it out and bookmark the site, we'll be back there next week!

Last but in no way least, Tempting Persephone's lovely owner let me know some exciting news: "Touched by an Alien" is one of Booklist's top 10 adult SF/Fantasy books of 2010! Check it out...I still can't quite believe it's true, but there it is, all in print and everything!

LOL, Amber. I can't get to #1 on that list, it's just the list of their top 10 SF/F books for 2010. Trust me, BEING on the list is like being #1, regardless of where they'd rank TBAA.

But {HUGS} for the enthusiasm! And, you know, there are other lists where the book/s can move up...so, you know, we shall see what we shall see. :-D

Awww, thanks, Brandy. I can't tell you guys how much it means to me to have such wonderful peeps in the Alien Collective. Some authors wait ages to get even one fan as awesome as all of you guys are. *sniff* I'm very lucky, 'cause you guys are the BEST.
