Linger, Alpha and Nightshade News!

Well I have a bunch of great news to share with you!

I’m gonna start with Linger since it’s releasing today (squee!!!), I have a shiny copy in the mail heading my way as we speak and I can’t wait to read it! You are excited to? Well Maggie and Kristi organized a twitter party! Here are the details (from The Story Siren):

In Shiver, Grace and Sam found each other. Now, in Linger, they must fight to be together. For Grace, this means defying her parents and keeping a very dangerous secret about her own well-being. For Sam, this means grappling with his werewolf past . . . and figuring out a way to survive into the future. Add into the mix a new wolf named Cole, whose own past has the potential to destroy the whole pack. And Isabel, who already lost her brother to the wolves . . . and is nonetheless drawn to Cole.
At turns harrowing and euphoric, Linger is a spellbinding love story that explores both sides of love—the light and the dark, the warm and the cold—in a way you will never forget.

I am DYING to read this book DYING!!! (Thank goodness I can get a copy today!) To celebrate the release of Linger I'm hosting a fantastic party on Twitter with Maggie Stiefvater!

Up next, you guys might have noticed that I am a huge Shifters series by Rachel Vincent fan, and the last book in the series Alpha release on September 28th, 2010 and Rachel revealed the 1st chapter yesterday! 



The unscrupulous new Council chair has charged Jace, Marc, and me with trespassing, kidnapping, murder, and treason. Yeah, we’ve been busy. But now it’s time to take justice into our own hands. We must avenge my brother’s death and carve out the rot at the heart of the Council.

It’s not going to be easy, and loss seems unavoidable, but I have promised to protect my Pride, no matter what. With a target on my back and Marc at my side, I’m heading for a final showdown that can—that will—change everything forever.
