Happenings and Samplers

Morning, everyone! I tell you, this week has been nuts. Hubs was in San Diego - sadly not for SDCC, though if he'd been there without me there would've been a problem. His office also sprung a leak, which has hopefully been fixed now. That involved a whole bunch of book moving, cutting into the ceiling, and patching a pipe. And one of the kitties has to have a tooth pulled. Um, that part of the week has sucked the most. Force feeding a cat meds is an almost impossible chore. For mine, it involved tricking her each time a new dose was due. Tricking her in a different way, mind you, because she figured out the other tricks meant meds!

Anywho, I'm working on some reviews that'll have fun giveaways to go alongside them. Watch for those next week. In the meantime, I wanted to tell you about a few free samplers floating around.

First and foremost is the (drum roll!!!) Simon 451 sampler that's new out this month! Guys, I am super excited about the launch of this line and not only because Gillian Anderson makes her writing debut, but because Simon 451 looks to be releasing some really awesome first titles.

Their lineup (and the titles included in the sampler) are:

A Vision of Fire by Gillian Anderson and Jeff Rovin
The Undying by Ethan Reid
Orbs by Nicholas Sansbury Smith
Orbs II: Stranded by Nicholas Sansbury Smith
The Protectors by Trey Dowell
Styx by Bavo Dhooge

The other two samplers I wanted to share with you today are both from Hachette. They've got a fiction sampler showcasing titles like the two recently Colbert featured titles, California by Edan Lepucki and Sweetness #9 by Stephan Eirik Clark, Megan Abbott's The Fever, M.R. Carey's The Girl With all the Gifts and a ton of others. They've got a non fiction sampler, too, if that's more your style.

All three samplers are (ebooks) free.
