A Special Announcement

With the year ending, and so many of us working diligently on projects we hope you’ll love, it seems the time has come for Genreality to close it’s doors, so-to-speak.

However, we’re not just going to run off and leave you all hanging. This is both a heads up, and a request for any topics you’d like to see discussed. This week will be our regularly scheduled Theme week…with a week of excerpts. Then We’ll be taking a week off for christmas (from December 24-29) then from December 31-January 5th we’ll be back to say goodbye, and tackle any topics you’ve asked to hear from us about and answer any questions from you.

The blog itself will not be disappearing, we will leave it up as an archive and hope that you will continue to use it as the valuable resource we tried to build it into.

There is tons of news today, some new releases and a winner from yesterdays post, so read on!

Genreality Alum Carrie Vaughn has plenty going on this month, and I really hope you’ll show her the love!

Her first young adult novel, VOICES OF DRAGONS releases onTuesday, March 16th!
She aptly describes the book as “an alternate history with dragons, rock climbing, jet fighters, and boyfriend trouble.

On one side of the border lies the modern world: the internet, homecoming dances, cell phones. On the other side dwell the ancient monsters who spark humanity’s deepest fears: dragons.

Seventeen-year-old Kay Wyatt knows she’s breaking the law by rock climbing near the border, but she’d rather have an adventure than follow the rules. When the dragon Artegal unexpectedly saves her life, the rules are abruptly shattered, and a secret friendship grows between them.

But suspicion and terror are the legacy of human and dragon inter actions, and the fragile truce that has maintained peace between the species is unraveling. As tensions mount and battles begin, Kay and Artegal are caught in the middle. Can their friendship change the course of a war?

In her young-adult debut, New York Times bestselling author Carrie Vaughn presents a distinctly twenty-first-century tale of myths and machines, and an alliance that crosses a seemingly unbridgeable divide.

“Vaughn’s universe is convincing and imaginative.” (Publishers Weekly )
Read the first chapter.

March 16 is also the release date for WARRIORS, an anthology edited by George R.R. Martin and Gardner Dozois. Which includes a powerful short story from Carrie called “The Girls from Avenger,” and it’s a historical piece about the Women Airforce Service Pilots of World War II.

SciFi Guy calls Carrie’s, “The Girls from Avenger,” a “gem of a story”

The anthology FULL MOON CITY, edited by Darrell Schweitzer,is also due out in March. It’s all werewolf stories and Carrie’s got a one-off Kitty story in it. “Kitty Learns the Ropes.“.

Our Wednesday blogger, Bob Mayer also has a new release out this week. Be Sure to check out WILD RIDE.

When Mary Alice Brannigan comes home to Ohio to restore the Dreamland amusement park, she doesn’t expect to fall in love with a clown. Nor does she expect to find that she’s the newest recruit in the Guardia, an elite team of demon fighters formed centuries before to guard the five Untouchables, the most powerful demons in the history of the world, now imprisoned right there in Dreamland. That would be bad enough, but there’s that clown she’s falling hard for, and there’s something about him that’s not quite right…

Then there’s Ethan Wayne, a former Green Beret who’s come home to Dreamland to die. Ethan has his own problems including a bullet in his chest inching closer to his heart, a true love who shoots him on sight, and a mother who drags him into the Guardia after he’s possessed by a crazed killer mermaid demon. Between ducking his mother’s attempts to reform him and dodging the bullets of a secret government agent he’s pretty sure is his soulmate, Ethan really doesn’t have time for demons, touchable or not.

But rocky romances and demented demons aren’t Mab and Ethan’s only problems, and they’re about to find out what everybody who’s ever been to an amusement park knows: the end of the ride is the wildest.

NEW RELEASE:

Shadowlight: A Novel of the Kyndred
by Lynn Viehl

I searched everywhere for the cover blurb for this book, but couldn;t find it. Maybe Lynn will drop by and post it for us.* However, even better than the blurb, here is a link to an excerpt for it. *grin* Go, read it, get hooked. By the book, it releases onTuesday, but rumor has it that sit’s in some stores right now!

READ AN EXCERPT

*From Lynn, dropping by with some copy:

With a single touch, Jessa Bellamy can see anyone’s darkest secrets. She’s tried to hide her psychic ability from everyone, but a biotech company called GenHance has discovered her talent, and intends to take her, kill her and harvest her priceless DNA to sell it to the highest bidder.

A mysterious photographer named Gaven Matthias is also interested in Jessa; he’s been trying to find her for months. When GenHance makes their move, Gaven has no choice but to kidnap Jessa himself so he can protect her and convince her to join him in helping protect others like her. Jessa discovers that she can’t see any of Gaven’s secrets, so she doesn’t know if he’s telling the truth, but as a monstrous assassin created by GenHance’s experiments closes in on them, she must decide if the strong attraction they share is proof enough that Gaven is her greatest ally — or is a smokescreen hiding a terrible secret.
