Taking a Break...

It's going to be dark for a little bit. I'm packing up the car and heading out the door on a road trip with the spouse... and while I'm gone some great books are set to be released. These fine books best be on my doorstep waiting for me when I get back...

The land is contaminated, electronics are defunct, the ravenous undead remain, and life has fallen into a nasty and brutish state of nature. Welcome to Bridge City, in what was once Arkansas: part medieval fortress, part Western outpost, and the precarious last stand for civilization. A ten-year-old prodigy when the world ended, Gus is now a battle-hardened young man. He designed Bridge City to protect the living few from the shamblers eternally at the gates. Now he's being groomed by his physician mother, Lucy, and the gentle giant Knock-Out to become the next leader of men. But an army of slavers is on its way, and the war they'll wage for the city's resources could mean the end of mankind as we know it.

Can Gus become humanity's savior? And if so, will it mean becoming a dictator, a martyr . . . or maybe something far worse than even the zombies that plague the land?

It's written by John Hornor Jacobs... that's code for: BUY IT!

Even as a struggling opera singer, Paige Marshall has never seen anything like the cutthroat competition of the Prospect Glen High School show choir. Coaching these championship-hungry students may be her toughest gig yet...

Especially when her best young male singer is suspected of killing the arrogant coach of Prospect Glen's fiercest rival. To clear his name, Paige will have to sort through a chorus of suspects, and go note-for-note with a killer who wants her out of the spotlight for good.

Maybe it's my concert choir time in high school... or singing with all those ladies in that all girls group... what was the name, again? Regardless, this book looks to be "totes awes" ... Uh, Michelle. Did I get that right? 

It's the first book in a new series by Joelle so... BUY IT!

When the going gets tough, Ella Mae LaFaye bakes pies. So when she catches her husband cheating in New York, she heads back home to Havenwood, Georgia, where she can drown her sorrows in fresh fruit filling and flakey crust. But her pies aren't just delicious. They're having magical effects on the people who eat them--and the public is hungry for more.

Discovering her hidden talent for enchantment, Ella Mae makes her own wish come true by opening the Charmed Pie Shoppe. But with her old nemesis Loralyn Gaynor making trouble, and her old crush Hugh Dylan making nice, she has more than pie on her plate. and when Loralyn's fiancé is found dead--killed with Ella Mae's rolling pin--it'll take all her sweet magic to clear her name.

I first met Ellery Adams when I decided to attend a book signing event in town. She was visting Salt Lake City and was kind enough to schedule a dual event with cozy mystery author, Paige Shelton. I fell in love with both of these ladies from the moment we met. Well, it looks like both are doing great, publishing so many different mystery books I can hardly keep up with them (same story with the beautiful, Joelle Charbonneau). Regardless, Ellery has a new series starting ... involving a Pie Shoppe... Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm I can't wait to get my hands on this book. There's got to be a pie recipe in there, don't ya think? I guess we should grab a copy and find out. BUY IT!

I hope you have a great few days away from this place... feel free to look around, read some reviews, guest posts... whatever. I'll see you when I get back. *smooch*
