So I can't be the only one who got a gift card to a bookstore for Christmas. I want to spend mine wisely.

I want to spend it on you guys!


Who has a book out? Tell me about it.

I'm going to B&N online today!
If I'm going to spend money on books (someone else's money - w00t!) I want it to go to writers I know!


So sell it up. Make me want to put it on my list!


*please*

:)


and if you know another AWer with a book you think I should read, please let me know!

What sort of books do you like to read? Lots of AWers in all genres and, of course, they're ALL good! :)

If you're willing to wander into the ( :eek: ) romance aisle, I can assure you it won't disappoint you to read our latest, Cold Moon Rising. It's our seventh in the Tales of the Sazi series, but can be read as a stand alone. It is the third book with our werewolf-hitman protagonist, Tony Giodone and he's forced to join forces with the worst of the shapeshifter councilmen, Ahmah al-Narmer, a king cobra shifter. Lots of fun. I promise! :D

Kelly's book is already on the list. I was going to buy it two weeks ago, but getting Christmas presents got in the way.

Cathy - I like almost any genre. I mix them up and alternate between suspense, horror, romance, historical fiction, lit fic, quirky, middle grade, fantasy, all of it.

I really like so many kinds of books I could never mark myself as a certain kind of "reader" (and for that matter a certain kind of writer). The stuff I've written ranges from horror to chick lit to quirky with a touch of supernatural.

I'm all over the map!


great suggestions...keep them coming!

This thread is making me realize how much I SUCK at being a salesperson. I can't even pitch my own book when someone is asking for the pitch! I.Need.Therapy.


Keeping listing them folks! I'm an amazon junkie and will happily buy copies of AW'ers books! (I do have a 3 book per week limit set by my husband though...so it might take me awhile to get to all of them.)

ETA: Trish, great thread. I usually don't follow siggy links, so much of this is news to me!

If you like psychological suspense, Agnes Hahn and the sequel, Imola. Poor Agnes is lonely (but don't turn your back on her, Lilin may show up).

I don't know if he's still around here anymore, but I read Will Lavender's Obedience and it was pretty decent. Definately kept me in suspense the entire time.

I bought maestro's book a couple months ago, but I still haven't found the time to read it (or anything for that matter).

I was just informed that Whiskey Creek Press's entire series of shorts (The Whiskey Shots series) is now on sale for 99 cents per title (they are only available in e-book format). My one published poetry collection, Rollicking Anthropomorphisms and Other Observations on the Human Condition is one of the Whiskey Shots books.

I already put yours on the list. I was thinking Something Bad, but if you recommend Agnes and Imola I can always go that way. :)

Haggis
12-29-2009, 08:45 PM
Please do consider picking up a copy of Imola (http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Imola/Richard-Satterlie/e/9781934755044) by our very own NeuroFizz, Richard Satterlie too. Then, once you've read that, you'll want to pick up the first in the series--Agnes Hahn.

I hope your gift card is for a lot of money. There are a whole lot of good books by AWers out there.

12-29-2009, 08:48 PM
willietheshakes has a new book out too, and Jamie Ford's book is out (Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet).

For romance, I highly recommend any one our AliaJohnson's (http://alissajohnsonromance.com/index.html) tril. As Luck Would Have it, Tempting Fate, McAlistiar's Fortune or A Christmas Ball.

Love Jenna's book, Marilyn Monroe Treasures, it's stunning, a great 'coffee table', I bought one for my self and another for a gift to give.

So this is what I've done. And I've hit my limit, so I'll have to get the rest of the ones suggested on my next book spree (couple months).

Agnes Hahn (NeuroFizz), Something Bad (NeuroFizz), Three Days to dead (chaos titan), Cold Moon Rising (Cathy C), The World More Full of Weeping (willietheshakes), Break (shady lane), Colllinsfort Village (Joe Ekaitis)and The Land of Mist and Snow(Uncle Jim).
(I bought one non-AW book - Anansi Boys - I'm on a Gaiman kick lately).

In my next book purchase, I'll get s'more stuff from AWers. (still want to get Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, definitely interested in Ilfayne's Bane and want to check out some of your other recommendations from this thread as well). So many good authors, so little time and money! :)

Keep the list going! I want to see what else is out there by youz guys.

Well, mine isn't out yet, but you can preorder (http://www.borders.com/online/store/TitleDetail?sku=1420111876) if you want. ;)

I'm reading Three Days to Dead now, and it's excellent! I've been intending to pick up William Meikle (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52793)'s stuff, the vampire short story collection with James Macdonald (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44361)'s stuff, and some of the various AW Fantasy/SF authors' (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=93) stuff.

And, I got Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet for Christmas. (Ok, I stopped dead in the aisle at Target until my mom picked it up for me... ;) After Christmas I went back and saw there were only three left on that shelf.)

I guess I don't have to pimp my book, since so many of you awesome folks have done it for me. :D

I'll recc a few AW members my own self:

dragonjax - aka Jackie Kessler. Pick up "Black & White" the superhero novel she co-wrote with Caitlin Kittredge (also a member, but I haven't seen her 'round these parts in ages). I loved this book!

Morrigan - aka, Nicole Peeler. "Tempest Rising" debuted this fall to some great reviews. If you like quirky urban fantasy, this one's for you!

Nancy Holzner (I can't remember her AW handle) - "Deadtown" just released yesterday, and I can't wait to pick it up.

Stew21
12-30-2009, 08:35 PM
Your book was on the list from the start and will be arriving with the 8 others in the next day or so! w00t!!

I don't have a book (yet) but do you have any money left? Now that I thought of it, there's Hugh Howey's "Molly Fyde and The Parsona Rescue."
http://www.amazon.com/Molly-Fyde-Parsona-Rescue-Howey/dp/1935254138
I got a copy when he posted months ago giving away ten copies that had printing problems. It's a YA SF adventure with no sex. I suppose Molly and her friend were too busy saving each other from certain death. I enjoyed it so much I pre-ordered the sequel:

Here's a recent thread where Hugh announces the newer book and I wrote a short review of Parsona Rescue:

If you want to read a bunch of fun Sci-Fi stories, I recommend "What If (http://www.amazon.com/What-If-Collection-Science-Fiction/dp/098224343X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1262726863&sr=8-1)" by ReadMe Publishing. (I have a little story in there.)

benbradley, you're a gentleman and a scholar. I've been staring at 8 copies of my book that have typos and wondering what to do with them. The typos are being corrected, but last time I looked (about three minutes ago) the corrected version hadn't made it to the printer yet.

So, here's the deal....if anyone wants a typo'd copy just PM me and I'll send one. I can ship for free through my husband's work. I could use the feedback anyway. If no one here wants them, I'm going to put them on the breakroom table at work. I guarantee they'll disappear within an hour there.

OR, if you've been sitting around thinking, "Gee, I sure wish I could pay full price for a typo ridden urban fantasy," then you can buy one off Amazon, because even though the title isn't supposed to be live right now, they seem to have an infinite supply of copies.

I'm so glad I finally have something to pimp (even though I'm only one of many contributors to this project):

If you like reading and learning about food as much as eating it, check out The Gastronomica Reader (link in my sig line). It's a compilation of the editor's favorite articles from Gastronomica magazine over the past 10 years. Gastronomica has been called "The New Yorker of food magazines," so that should give you an idea of what it's like.

Well the lovely B&N box was waiting for me when I got home *squee*


I could not decide which to open first.

DGrintalis suggested I close my eyes, mix them up and pick one.


I did!


The first book to be read is Three Days to Dead (Kelly Meding)

Very Excited, I am!


I'll take a pic of the pile of AW books I've got tomorrow and post it. :)

:is happy:


Thanks everyone for the suggestions, and generosity from several of you for sending along ebooks and such.

When I get done with this stack, I'll be back to buy more of your books! :)

Keep the list going.

I held off on taking the pic because one of the books didn't ship with the rest. and I still haven't received it. :(

(Willietheshakes' book A World More Full of Weeping hasn't managed to show up.)

I started with Three Days to Dead (and W00t for Kelly Meding! :D awesome!) and am now reading The Land of Mist and Snow (authored by Uncle Jim and Dr. Doyle)
