Misc 081Well, dear readers, I once again have a Kindle thanks to the generosity of a friend (Thanks Mr. Scott).  I have finished one book and am half way through another one.  In the morning before work, I am sitting down with my coffee and reading as I finish my breakfast. It is a relaxing way to start the day. I admit that leaving my books has been pretty hard this week, but to work we must all go.

Entera Files by Leanna Renee Hieber ~ A week in and I wish there was more time in the day to read.  Unfortunately, there is this little thing called work that gets in the way.  From the days after the assassination of  Abraham Lincoln to the streets of London, this story continues to delight and intrigue me. I can’t wait to see where it goes. The language is beautiful and the imagery amazing.

Here is the description of the book from Amazon:

London, 1882: Queen Victoria appoints Harold Spire of the Metropolitan Police to Special Branch Division Omega. Omega is to secretly investigate paranormal and supernatural events and persons. Spire, a skeptic driven to protect the helpless and see justice done, is the perfect man to lead the department, which employs scholars and scientists, assassins and con men, and a traveling circus. Spire’s chief researcher is Rose Everhart, who believes fervently that there is more to the world than can be seen by mortal eyes.

The Demise of Foxy Jack (Adventures of X Pirates of Book 1)  This is the latest book by Edward Medina and I can’t wait to read it.  Medina writes with the zeal of  showman and the talent of Shakespeare. You can find an excerpt on his blog, Just Sayin’.  The Demise of Foxy Jack follows up where the Murder of Crows left off. The second installment of the new X-Pirate series is coming out soon and I can’t until the next one and I haven’t even read this one, yet.

Want to add my book to your pile, Blood Child? It is available on Amazon. What’s on your reading pile? Come one, don’t leave a girl hanging…

With the death of my Kindle, I have gone back and forth between using the phone app and solid tangible books.  The app isn’t perfect and I would love to own a new Kindle, but it isn’t in the cards right now.  And even when it is, I know now that I will never give up my old fashioned smelly books. There is nothing like reading a physical book.

Here is what is on my to-read pile:

Entera Files by Leanna Renee Hieber ~ I started reading this one last night and I am officially hooked.  From the first page, I want to know what is going to happen to Miss Clara Templeton, a gifted sensitive, and a member of a team of scientists, theologians, magicians and philosophers hunting for way to protect the nation’s leader from harm. Set in the period after the civil war, this novel is promising to take me on an amazing journey.

Bloody Bones by Laurell K. Hamilton – I have lost track of the number of times I have read this series.  This is the fifth installment.  It is just before it takes a turn for the erotic. Anita is ass deep in trouble not of her own making.  At this point in the series she isn’t the hero that she will later become. She is a gifted animator (zombie raiser)  and vampire slayer. She comes through with the grace and stubbornness that we will come to expect in the later books.

The Demise of Foxy Jack (Adventures of X Pirates of Book 1)  This is the latest book by Edward Medina and I can’t wait to read it.  Medina writes with the zeal of  showman and the talent of Shakespeare. You can find an excerpt on his blog, Just Sayin’.  The Demise of Foxy Jack follows up where the Murder of Crows left off. The second installment of the new X-Pirate series is coming out on the 28th and I can’t until the next one and I haven’t even read this one, yet.

These are the books that fueling my inspiration this week. What about you?

Preview from Another Pen

A wonderful excerpt from a book sure to become a classic.

Warren Bronck had had enough so he took a rowboat out to sea. He had grown tired of all the jibber jabber, folderol, and twaddle of the populous at large. All he wanted was a place to fish that was all his own. All he wanted was some peace and quiet.

Everyone knows that pelicans are natural fishers of the seas. Everyone knows that they are jovial, even-tempered, celebratory creatures. Warren Bronck was a pelican, but he was none of those other things. If you encountered him in the morning he was usually grumpy. By evening he was normally using a great deal of salty language.

Other than his temperament Warren was a striking figure of a pelican. He was tall, big chested, and had a deep rich voice. To most, he seemed distinguished and charming. In truth he was such a master of the obvious and ironic that no…
