Thursday's Cravings

Well, hope everyone had a fab July and all y'all are enjoying the start of August. It was a great start for me, because August is a big month in our family. Yesterday, the 1st, was my 25th anniversary of being married to the hubs. (And they said it wouldn't last. No, really, they did.) We celebrated by going out for sushi and watching White Collar and Covert Affairs which were DVRd, and saved for this occasion, from the night before. I know -- we LIVE. The 7th is the chicklet's bday, the 14th is the hubs' bday, and mid-month I take the chicklet to SoCal to start law school. (USC, go Trojans! Len and Kyle totally approve.)

I also spent yesterday finalizing my edits on Alien vs. Alien and getting them to the awesome editor so that AvA can actually release on time (December 4th, yes, start your pre-order engines). So that's why you haven't heard from me for what might seem like a long time (or might seem just right, your mileage may vary). BUT, before I get back to work on Alien in the House, let's get caught up on all that's going on "out there" besides the Olympics.

First off, a reminder that the next stop on my Split Personality Summer Signing Tour will be this Sunday, August 5th, from 2-4pm at The Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, AZ. I'll be signing Alien Diplomacy, The Night Beat, and Alexander Outland: Space Pirate (as G.J. Koch). I'll also sign whatever else you want, 'cause I'm easy that way. Chocolate had assured me it will be making an appearance, too, so you do NOT want to miss out!

Now, head over to Paranormal Cravings where they've done a full Series Spotlight on the Alien/Katherine "Kitty" Katt series as part of their August Strong Heroines Month, AND where you can win a signed, personalized copy of Alien in the Family.

Speaking of entering to win and The Night Beat, the second half of the Double Kickass Heroines contest to win an ebook copy of both The Night Beat and Skein of Shadows by Marsheila Rockwell is still going strong. Leave a comment on the Blah, Blah, Blah Blog (the post under this one) and get entered to win both books! Contest ends Sunday, August 5th, so don't delay, enter today.

Next, let's look at some reviews. See what A Buckeye Girl Reads thought of The Night Beat, what Journey With Words thought of Touched by an Alien, and, if you can read French :-D what Bananas in the Void thought of Alexander Outland: Space Pirate.

Then, head over to Larissa's Bookish Life to see which fictional worlds she'd most like to live in.

And last but not least, hit The Night Bazaar where yours truly is running the yap about a certain kind of Sin authors worry about perpetrating. (And, since it's moi, you know it's not gonna be a conventional sin. ;-D)

That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way. Hope to see many of you on Sunday, and hope everyone has a great weekend. So, peace out, my li'l gangstas, and let's be readers out there!

Love,
Gini
