I went to another book signing in Austin, with Ilona Andrews and Jeaniene Frost.
Gordon and Ilona talked mostly about their book coming out soon, Burn for Me, and Jeaniene about her new series starting with Beautiful Ashes.
I’m really looking forward to reading the Frost book, which sounds as if it will be the beginning of an interesting world–angels and demons and plenty of danger.
I’ve read a few online snippets of the Andrews book, which is about families with magical legacies, made extra influential by the power passed down through the generations. And I can already see the snark I admire so much will be in this new heroine, too.
And Gordon and Ilona gave away six ARCs, four of the anthology Night Shift, two of Burn for Me. And I won one! So I’ll be reading that Jim and Dali short story the authors promised everyone soon.
The weather was rainy, with everyone’s phones blaring a flood warning before the signing started, but we were all safe and dry in the building, and happily comparing notes on favorite Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance/Fantasy writers we thought other people might like.
You know how it goes–“oh, you like this author? Have you read this series?”
It’s always nice to be surrounded by readers, especially readers who have similar tastes.
