I love it when a bunch of books I can’t wait to read are all released at the same time. You can literally see my writing come screeching to a halt.
In two days I’ve purchased and finished Jim Butcher’s Cold Days, his latest in the Dresden Files, and Kevin Hearne’s fifth book of his Iron Druid series, Trapped. The best part about the two is that their voices (and bizarre, tongue in cheek humor) are similar to one another. I need to buy Hearne’s books in print eventually (I own them all in ebooks), but I have to recommend them to everyone. You know, I should probably get around to reviewing them over at SBR.
Did some more writing on a book I shouldn’t be touching until the Christian Cole rewrites are finished, but my muse is flogging me and desiring that the written word be put into first person and not Christian Cole. So now I’m stuck trying to channel a teenage girl who happens to be a werewolf (please, no jokes. This is embarrassing enough as is) and kills Cullens (heh). On the plus side, I’v written 3,000 words of Burnt Moon (title subject to change) over the past two days, bringing it to 12,000 total, which is 1/8 of the way to my goal. Go team!
Anyways, don’t forget that Corruptor is still on sale over at Amazon for only $3.99 on Kindle. Makes a great Christmas present (or Hannakuh, or Kwanzaa, or Flying Spaghetti Boiling Day, whichever you prefer) for anyone.
Don’t worry, your well-spent money goes to a good cause.

I’m a huge Iron Druid fan, too! Hearne’s voice is sheer perfection.
I was trying to explain Oberon to one of my coworkers and finally told her I’d buy the first book in the series for her. Hard to explain that dog.
You’re the second person I’ve heard talk about Iron Druid in the same number of days. Looks like I might need to add it to Mt. TBR.
