April, Snow and other things...

So Happy April 1st everyone.
It's supposed to be spring but when I looked out past my porch today this is what I saw...

:( Snow? Really? Bleh... Fortunately it is April Fools' Day and so there were many things to enjoy despite the weather. I shall share some links with you, of news going on in the book world today.

Maggie Stiefvater has announced the 4th book in her Wolves of Mercy Trilogy. It's called Litter and it's purple... So excited!

Kiersten White has a new Twilight-esque series coming out. It sounds really original and fun.

Bree Despain received new movie news that Miss Piggy will unfortunately not be involved in her Dark Divine movie project.

Nathan Fillion tweets about bad news for Castle fans...

There is also a new and fun mystery/giveaway that will be starting on April 4th called iClue

You can read more about it on Kimberly's blog

and Laura & Lisa's Blog

Here's the short of it
Six authors were talking one day and realized that even though their books ran the gamut from sci fi to romance, contemporary to ghostly, they all had one thing in common: a really good mystery. These authors--Lisa & Laura Roecker Mandy Hubbard, Adele Griffin, Kimberly Derting, Lee Nichols & Beth Revis decided they wanted to give their readers a little more mystery...and if they solved that mystery, there needs to be a great prize, no?

The authors are working with The Reading Room (a book review site) and a slew of amazing book bloggers to bring you an exciting new contest that will be running over the next 6 weeks. For each mystery you solve, you get another entry into the contest. The grand prize is an iTouch loaded with 6 AMAZING eBooks from the participating authors.

Help us spread the word, and you'll be entered for a prize to win six autographed books, one from each of us! There are lots of ways to enter! 

You can tweet! 

You can spread the word however you like! And for every way you spread the word, we're going to enter you in a contest for a grand prize pack of all six of our books, signed! And don't forget to come back to the actual event for your chance to solve fun mysteries and win an iPod Touch!! (And yes--before you ask, the contest IS open internationally--both prizes!)

So that's the news for the day? Do you all have anything to share?


  1. There is still snow here in Canada where I live!

  2. Right there with you on the snow here on Cape Cod! My mom has her air condition on in Florida.

    The iClue thing is a fun idea. I tweeted it thanks for providing such an easy way to do it.
    I'll have to remember to visit the other sites and do all the entering. I think I need pen and paper. I wish I had a notebook on my computer! I probably do but just don't know it.


  3. Haha, I love how you added the April Fool's posts some of the authors put up. And snow sucks! I got around 5-6 inches, but it nearly all melted away.


Hello readers! I love comments, so please feel free to leave them. I do comment back on every comment I get, though it may take me a couple of days. Thanks for stopping by!
