Cover Art, Reviews and all that Jazz

I looked through my mail yesterday evening and I received the first ever Rachel Vincent newsletter and with it I saw the cover art for her third werecat novel Pride. Drool with me and read the adrenaline pumping back cover blurb. Damn it I don’t want to wait till 2009.

Here’s hoping cats do have nine lives

I’m on trial for my life. Accused of infecting my human ex-boyfriend–and killing him to cover up the crime. I’m not guilty. But tell that to the panel of Alphas sitting in judgment. Infecting a human is one of three capital offenses recognized by the Pride–along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a human.

I’m two for three. A goner

On top of that, Marc is in danger of being tossed from the Pride, and we’ve discovered a rogue stray terrorizing the mountainside, hunting a wild teenage tabbycat. I think I can protect her from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial countil.

If I survive my own trial…

Of course here are the dreaded release dates in the far future:

Pride - February 1st, 2009

Prey - July 1, 2009

More from Rachel Vincent is to be expected as our full time writing UF kickass princess has prepared a new exciting YA series abouta a teenage age banshee. The series itself remains nameless, but the first books “My Soul to Take” and “My Soul to Save” are written and are waiting for the Fall of 2009, when they will run alongside with the werecat series.

Now to move to the next topic. How looney are you about shifters? When was the last time you encountered a good shape shifting article. Well I am giving you a treat with a great blog post from Teresa D’Amario about Shifters and Demons: The New Black?, while Michele Hauf raises the question about Non-Animal Shifters.

Kimberley shoots out fantastic review like a machine gun and I can’t keep up at all with her. I wonder how she manages to read that much. I bet she is a vampire and simply reads 100% straight through the 24 hours. Here is just a sample of the titles commented.

1) “Seaborn” by Chris Howard

2) “Death’s Half Acre” by Margaret Maron

3) “First Blood” - Anthology
