June 8, 2011 Digital News Round-Up: Carina Press, Shannon Stacey and The Iron Knight
Morning all! Gosh, summer came on strong didn’t it? I don’t know what it’s like around your parts, but in Toronto it was like a light-switch went up and the city started to bake.
Speaking of hot, I’m going to Vegas this weekend! To celebrate, I’ll be posting a special list of recommended reads to get me–and you–in the mood for Sin City. This will be my first time. Where should I go?
While you ponder that question, I’ve got another news round-up of Harlequin and Carina Press news. Starting with:
Carina Press‘s First Year Anniversary!
*Throws confetti in the air* Congratulations, Angela James, Malle Vallik and the entire Harlequin Digital Team for the amazing success of their little digital press that could. Hope you didn’t miss the celebrations. The Carina Press team gave away a first gen Kobo ereader on the blog and went on a whirlwind blog tour, giving away Carina Press downloads to commenters.
Save the Contemporary: Yours to Keep by Shannon Stacey
Continuing on with Carina Press news, Smart Bitches, Trashy Books and Dear Author have chosen a new feature title for Save the Contemporary and it’s Carina Press’s Shannon Stacey’s Yours to Keep, the third novel in the Kowalski series. If you haven’t read this series, you should give it a try. REALLY great contemporary romance, by a REALLY great author! And if you’re not a digital reader yet, the series will be hitting physical bookshelves starting in 2012. Read the details here. But seriously, go pick up Yours to Keep!
The Iron Knight Cover Reveal
Last week on the Iron Fey Facebook page the cover for Julie Kagawa’s The Iron Knight was revealed. Remember when you had to vote for your choice of model to grace the cover back in December? Yeah, so now it’s ready! Join the Facebook page to see. I’d show it here, but Grim might catch wind and cause some havoc. Don’t want to mess with that guy. And on top of that, Summer’s Crossing, the second Iron Fey e-novella is out right now. You can download it from EnterTheFaeryWorld.com
Finally, let’s end this news round-up again with a book trailer. Check out Peas and Thank You: Simple Meatless Meals the Whole Family Will Love from blogger Sarah Matheny and Harlequin Nonfiction. Adorable little girls ten seconds in to the video!
