Happy Columbus Day (observed) to those in the US. And a Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Canada.

New York Comic Con ended yesterday and I'm still recovering from Friday and Saturday. I didn't go yesterday, Kids' Day, due to other commitments. Trinitytwo was with me on Friday and we'll have some pictures and goodies to share with you. Also during the week, I'll share with you many many press releases about comics and more. If you look just below this post you will see the first 3. Just click "Read more >>" if the press release title interests you.

It's a fairly light release week with 1 debut:

How to be a Good Wife by Emma Chapman.

(Don't forget to vote in the October 2013 Debut Author Challenge Cover Wars - here.)

And from formerly featured Debut Author Challenge Authors:

The Obsidian Heart (Echoes of Empire 2) by Mark T. Barnes. I saw the novel at NYCC. It has a gorgeous cover by Stephan Martiniere. I'm enjoying the first novel - The Garden of Stones - and have preordered The Obsidian Heart;

Copperhead (Ironskin 2) by Tina Connolly;

First Bite (Dark Wolf 1) by Dani Harper;


Pushing Luck (Pax Arcana eNovella) by Elliott James.

If you are a fan of Steampunk you are in luck this week with:

His Lordship Possessed (Disenchanted & Co., Part 2) by Lynn Viehl;

The Osiris Curse (Tweed and Nightingale Adventures 2) by Paul Crilley;

Fiendish Schemes by K.W. Jeter;


Luminous Chaos (The Mysteries of New Venice 2) by Jean-Christophe Valtat

Both Anne Rice and Christopher Rice (Anne's son) have novels out on the 15th:

The Wolves of Midwinter (The Wolf Gift Chronicles 2) by Anne Rice; and

The Heavens Rise by Christopher Rice, which is his first supernatural novel.  It's really, really good!

Happy Monday! I hope that everyone had a good weekend. We spent some time at the local Apple Festival. It was nice to be outside and the apple fritters were wonderful. I did manage to fit in some reading. I'm almost done with The Heavens Rise by Christopher Rice, which will be published on October 15, 2013. It's his first supernatural novel. More on this next month. 

It's a light release week with something for everyone it seems.
