  • Hope’s Folly Is Out Today/Update

    Hope’s Folly, the third book in Linnea Sinclair’s Dock Five series, is out today. The copy I pre-ordered is now on its way! This one is about Philip instead of Chaz and Sully.

Their review will be up tomorrow morning.

At least I should be back earlier than tonight… […]

    The first eight chapters of Diamond Star, the next book in Catherine Asaro’s Skolian Saga, are available on the Baen website. Diamond Star will be released in May 2009. Here is the description from Amazon: Del was a rock singer. He was also the renegade son of the Ruby Dynasty, which made his career choice less than respectable, and gave him more to worry about than getting gigs and not getting cheated by recording companies, club owners, or his agent.
