Tuesday Tomorrow

Club Dead by Charlaine Harris
Published by: Ace Hardcover
Publication Date: March 2nd, 2010
Format: Hardcover, 304 Pages
To Buy

The official patter:
"Things between cocktail waitress Sookie and her vampire boyfriend Bill seem to be going excellently (apart from the small matter of him being undead) until he leaves town for a while. A long while. Bill's sinister boss Eric has an idea of where to find him, whisking her off to Jackson, Mississippi to mingle with the under-underworld at Club Dead. When she finally catches up with the errant vampire, he is in big trouble and caught in an act of serious betrayal. This raises serious doubts as to whether she should save him or start sharpening a few stakes of her own ..."

Oh... collectible edition! Because any true Sookie fan knows that it wasn't until book four that Sookie became worthy of the coveted hardcover... so now (in order to capitalize on Charlaine's fame) they're offering them in hardcover. Personally, I love this, but I wish they'd stick to a standardized size... small, big, uber big, small... urgh. It infuriates the true collector. Especially the font change over! Also, my book dealer bbf, David, over at Murder by the Book has signed editions! Make sure to nab one of those, I already have!

Ghouls Gone Wild by Victoria Laurie

Publication Date: March 2nd, 2010
Format: Paperback, 366 Pages
To Buy

The official patter:
"Psychic M.J. Holliday finds herself in a witchy situation... When M.J. and her friends travel to a small town near Edinburgh, Scotland, to film the first installment of their new cable TV show Ghoul Getters, they find plenty of spooky action in a series of supposedly haunted caverns. But when they discover the body of a maintenance worker, the cause of death is reminiscent of an old legend involving a witch's wrath..."

Such fun! These covers are just wonderfully and graphically stunning. While, not the highlight of book three, with the Golden Gate Bridge, we do get Scotland!

Shalador's Lady by Anne Bishop
Published by: ROC
Publication Date: March 2nd, 2010
Format: Hardcover, 496 Pages
To Buy

The official patter:
"For years the Shalador people suffered the cruelties of the corrupt Queens who ruled them, forbidding their traditions, punishing those who dared show defiance, and forcing many more into hiding. Now that their land has been cleansed of tainted Blood, the Rose-Jeweled Queen, Lady Cassidy, makes it her duty to restore it and prove her ability to rule.

But even if Lady Cassidy succeeds, other dangers await. For the Black Widows see visions within their tangled webs that something is coming that will change the land-and Lady Cassidy-forever..."

I have so many people who swear by this series... I should really pick up the first book off the bottom of my to be read pile.

The Dead Travel Fast by Deanna Raybourn
Published by: Mira
Publication Date: March 2nd, 2010
Format: Paperback, 320 Pages
To Buy

The official patter:
"A husband, a family, a comfortable life: Theodora Lestrange lives in terror of it all.

With a modest inheritance and the three gowns that comprise her entire wardrobe, Theodora leaves Edinburgh — and a disappointed suitor — far behind. She is bound for Roumania, where tales of vampires are still whispered, to visit an old friend and write the book that will bring her true independence.

She arrives at a magnificent, decaying castle in the Carpathians replete with eccentric inhabitants: the ailing dowager; the troubled steward; her own fearful friend, Cosmina. But all are outstripped in dark glamour by the castle's master, Count Andrei Dragulescu.

Bewildering and bewitching in equal measure, the brooding nobleman ignites Theodora's imagination and awakens passions in her that she can neither deny nor conceal. His allure is superlative, his dominion over the superstitious town, absolute — Theodora may simply be one more person under his sway.

Before her sojourn is ended — or her novel completed — Theodora will have encountered things as strange and terrible as they are seductive. For obsession can prove fatal...and she is in danger of falling prey to more than desire."

Another author I've heard so many good things about. Check her out! She'll be at Murder by the Book this Saturday!


I am dying to get my hands on Deanna Raybourn's books. I have read so many wonderful reviews on them including yours that its now imperative I track them down.

Not to help your book buying or anything... but my friend David, and Murder by the Book has sigend copies ( Yes, insert evil laugh here! I love signed books!
