A hard-to-find Loretta Chase is on Amazon for $2.99 digitally. I don’t know who “NYLA” is as a publisher, but with the square cover art and the artistic style of the image, I’m wondering if Chase self-published this book. Anyone know?
First out of the gate in News From My Tweetstream From BEA was Kobo’s announcement of a new ereader with a touch screen, selling for $129 and available next month (“in time for Father’s Day”) at many retailers including Indigo, Best Buy, WalMart and Borders.
I’ve been waiting to see what the new Kobo will look like, because I’m curious about how it will work, especially since I am wondering if a different reader will lure me away from Kindle III (“Motto: easy to load books, crap-ass organization.”) Kobo has user-created collections, and some dexterity in loading files that might appeal to me, and I adore how much of their data they like to share and talk about at conferences. I’m going to try to go fondle one at BEA this week.
From the Department of Backhanded Compliments, comes this article about summer reading wherein writer Allison Dempsey has the following recommendation for Alyssa Day’s upcoming novel:
If you have no shame in your literary taste and want to combine as many ridiculous genres as possible: “Vampires in Atlantis” by Alyssa Day.
Historical romance, smutty sex scenes, bloodsucking creatures and a disappearing city: What more could you ask for in terms of a self-indulgent read? Might want to go the Kindle route with this one, though, to avoid being judged in public. (Available June 7.)
WOW. I’m actually stumped on how to come up with a more insulting recommendation. Any ideas on how you could insult a book more while recommending it?
