Randomly Booked: Don’t Stop Me Now by Mcfly

The song Don’t Stop Me Now by Mcfly made me think of Cat and Bones in Halfway to the Grave. When Cat meets Bones shes out looking for a vampire and manages to get Bones to come with her. Then Bones manages to change the circumstances and Cat thinks she is in deep trouble. Bones has a really good time trying to seduce Cat and please her. This song depicts the relationship of Cat and Bones especially during the beginning of their relationship but basically throughout.

Tonight I’m gonna have myself a real good time

And the world is turning inside out, yeah
I’m floating around in ecstasy so 
So Don’t stop me now
Don’t stop me cause I’m havin’ a good time
I’m havin’ a good time

I’m a shooting star leaping throught the skies
Like a tiger defying the …

Bookish Rants or Raves: eBook Publishing Fail

I have a bone to pick with publishers about eBook publishing. Something happened recently that really pissed me off. I am sure that I am not alone in being upset about the different release dates when it comes to releasing a book in electronic format verses release dates for hardcover or paperback.

The newest book in Kim Harrison’s Rachel Morgan series was released February 23rd and I had pre-ordered it about a week before. On release day I found out that it had been pushed back a week and I was only going to be able to get it on March 2nd. When I went to the eBook online store where I bought it, I had the surprise of finding out that it had been pushed back once again to April 9th. WTF!?!?

That is so disrespectful to readers! I understand that publishers …

On Our Bookish Minds: Lets Talk About Book Covers

The old saying of never judge a book by its cover is true most of the time. However, there have been instances when there is a bad cover or even those which do not illustrate the characters realistically, such as the recent controversy about the whitewashing of protagonists in several YA books.

Often these are still good books, just bad cover choices.

  

I don’t usually let bad covers put me off to a book, but there are times for each of us I am sure it happens for better or worse. Beautiful covers can be misleading sometimes though and I have been burnt several times when I picked up a book that I thought would be good just because of …

Interview: Libby Cone, Author of Flesh and Grass

I was very happy to get a chance to interview Libby Cone, author of  two historical fiction books.   Her debut novel, War On the Margins, is set in the Channel Islands during World War II.  Her second book, Flesh and Grass, is set in a 17th Century Dutch settlement in colonial America.   It was released last month and is available as a Kindle ebook from Amazon.  See my review of Flesh and Grass here

BLI: Let’s start off with a basic question.  What made you decide to start writing?

Libby: I think writing chooses you. I keep finding out obscure things (usually while aimlessly surfing on the Web), reading about them, reading more about them, and then talking about them nonstop. Then I realize I need to write about them.

BLI: Next, I have some questions about Flesh …

Review: Flesh and Grass by Libby Cone

Format Read: ebook

Release Date: February 4, 2010Publisher: AmazonFormats Available: ebookPurchasing Info: Goodreads, Book websiteAmazon

Book Blurb: Seventeenth-century Holland is a major power with a large, wealthy middle class built on spices and slavery. Dutch schemes to colonize the New World attract few interested parties, but Pieter Cornelissoon Boom, an early Mennonite with a dream of communal living, brings a few families to Delaware Bay in 1663. Their “Little Common-wealth” is just getting started when the bloody economic rivalry between Holland and England unleashes violence on the coast of Delaware. The Nieuw Netherland colonies swing between Dutch and English ownership in a series of Anglo-Dutch wars. Cornelis, Boom’s blind son, tells the story of the community (based loosely on the ill-fated Delaware settlement of Pieter Plockhoy) …

All YA Love: Guest Post by Debut Author, Swati Avasthi

I’m excited to be here on Book Lovers Inc. Thanks for the invite. My debut novel, Split, will hit the shelves in March 9th and is narrated by 16 year old Jace Witherspoon, who has just run 1300 miles after hitting his father back. He hasn’t seen his brother, Christian in five years, but with nowhere else to go, he shows up on Christian’s doorstep with bruises and a secret. Split is about what happens after you get out.

When I first spoke to my editor, she said that she promised herself she wouldn’t ask me whether I had any personal experience with domestic violence and I realized that I was going to get that question a lot. Luckily, my answer is no. The follow up question to that is then, why did I …

Interview: Debut Author Skyler White & a Giveaway!


Book Lovers Inc: What is your favorite color and what do you think it says about you or how does it represent you?

Skyler White: I don’t really have a favorite color. Green, probably. Or black. I imagine what that says about me is that I’m somewhat non-committal. Or that I like spring and growth. Or winter and death. 😉

BLI: What is your favorite type of music?

SW: Gak, I’m going to be non-committal throughout, looks like. I like a lot of different kinds of music, depending on my mood. I love the sound of the cello, but I also love the terrible music I grew up with in the 80’s. I’m an old-school U2 fan, but I’m loving Lady Gaga right now.

BLI: Many authors talk about the music they listen …

1st March Shift by Rachel Vincent


Genre:  Urban Fantasy
Being the first female werecat enforcer isn’t easy. Scars accumulate, but I’m stronger in so many ways.

As for my personal life? It’s complicated. Choices worth making always are. Ever since my brother’s death and my father’s impeachment, it’s all I can do to prevent more blood from spilling. Now our Pride is under attack by a flight of vicious thunderbirds. And making peace with our new enemies may be the only way to get the best of our old foe.
