My First In My Mailbox Post!

Well after a year of blogging I thought I might take a moment to take part in The Story Siren's weekly meme In My Mailbox.  Partly because I eagerly check out all the posts for this meme every Sunday (I love to know whats on the docket review wise), but also because I'd like to commemorate the start of what I hope will be a beautiful friendship. 

Just before Christmas the lovely folks at TOR contacted me, to my absolute joy.  With a fantastic list of authors including esteemed writers Cory Doctorow and Orson Scott Card, (not to mention the lovely Cherie Priest books I just tore through) I am nothing short of thrilled at getting the opportunity to dig into some of their other authors who I've not had a chance to pick up yet.

My first package popped up on my doorstep yesterday, (it was too big for the mailbox!).  It's the starter pack including three part ones in ongoing TOR series.

Legacies; Shadow Grail, No. 1, By Mercedes Lackey and Rosemary Edghill (in anticipation of part 2, Conspiracies coming out July 2011)

Personal Demons, By Lisa Desrochers (in anticipation of book 2, Original Sin also due in July)

And the one I'm most excited about, Award winning Laurence Yeps book 1 in his City Trilogy, City of Fire (in anticipation of Junes release of part 2 City of Ice). What a pretty cover!

As you can see, Thurman has busily laid claim to all three of the books, so I guess I'm going to have to fight for my turn to read them.

  7. Lots of praise for Personal Demons! yay! That gets me excited. But yah, even more praise for my kitties, which to be frank is the only way faster to my heart than food.

  8. I'm starting to miss Fallen Angels with all the demons.

    At least they aren't vampires.
