New Releases I’m Looking Forward to in November & Then Some part 1!
I had planned on posting not only books that were released on 10/27 or (fairly) easily found in a bookstores that day even though their releases dates aren’t officially until 11/1-11/3 but also to show off books coming up in November – but that was days ago & now it’s already release day again (11/3) & I’m out of time. So I am going to do a few posts with one or more books I am really looking forward to you should run out to buy! :)All of which release this month. Someone tell me why I didn’t think of this idea sooner?
Some of the books will be ones I am already expecting to receive in the mail because I purchased them (as is the case with our first book here today). Others will be ones I am still hoping to win or get from some wonderful friend who likes to pass along books after she’s finished with them – still other’s in a small group (probably no more than one in this group but there may be more) that I just can’t afford right now even with the 45% discount being offered at some retailers. 😦
So without further ado here’s…
(most anticipated for me personally of debut authors to arrive on the scene in past couple of months)

In the tiny village of Rockabill, Maine, Jane True—26-year-old bookstore clerk and secret night swimmer—has no idea that her absent mother’s legacy is entry into a world populated by the origins of human myths and legends. It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: vampires are not quite what we think; dogs sometimes surprise us; and whatever you do, never—ever—rub the genie’s lamp. For Jane, everything kicks off when she comes across a murder victim during her nightly clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean. This grisly discovery leads to the revelation of why she has such freakish abilities in the water: her mother was a Selkie and Jane is only half human. With this knowledge, Jane soon finds herself mingling with supernatural creatures alternately terrifying, beautiful, and deadly—all adjectives that quite handily describe her new friend Ryu. When Ryu is sent to Rockabill to investigate the murder, he and Jane fall hard for each other even as they plummet into a world of intrigue threatening to engulf both supernatural and human societies. For someone is killing half-humans like Jane. The question is, are the murders the work of one rogue individual or part of a greater plot to purge the world of Halflings?
Other links of note relating to this much anticipated book:
Writings of a Wicked Book Addict (Partially included because I love the word Wicked but is great review also)
You can find a bunch more reviews with links on Nicole Peeler’s website. She didn’t only link perfect glowing reviews either. They are all balanced and fair reviews. (I say fair right now but I reserve the right to change my opinion about how fair or not they are until after I have finished reading the book!)
Excerpt/First Chapter: Available here on Nicole Peeler’s Website
Upcoming Second Jane True Cover Preview and Links:
Tracking the Tempest
Is this not one of the most awesome book covers you have ever seen??? If I ever finally do get a tattoo I am heavily considering this cover!
There is an excerpt and blurb available for this one also but you will have to go over to Nicole’s blog to find it because I refuse to post possible spoilers here about a book I haven’t read yet! Can’t risk finding out something myself that I don’t already know!!! 😉
Now go buy Tempest Rising and support this new author who is super cool & has awesome taste in not only supernatural beings but cover artists too!
***Please consider going to or ordering online from your local Indie Bookseller. I am really trying to do local or Indie-Seller only. I can’t always accomplish it due to personal financial reasons but I am trying. Here is the link to IndieBound to help you on your journey to an Indie-Seller only home. IndieBound.org will help you locate local Indie Stores selling the books you are looking for, give you a list of local Sellers in your area & if you can’t find the one you want locally will point you in the direction of another Indie-Seller who does have the book for online order in another part of the country. Nothing would make me happier than to save the local Indie-Sellers throughout the country. We are already only down to only a couple here in Miami.***
