Book Bits: Julie Kagawa, Devon Monk, Meljean Brook, Brenna Yovanoff

Book Bits: Julie Kagawa, Devon Monk, Meljean Brook, Brenna Yovanoff First, a huge thank you to everyone who donated, bid or spread the word about the Books Fighting Cancer charity auctions. Based on the receipts emailed to me (and I know many of you donated directly) and the Amazon commissions, the Books Fighting Cancer event raised $4,817 for the Barrow Neurological Institute and brain cancer research.

Waiting on Wednesday: The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff

Waiting on Wednesday: The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff We like dark overtones in our novels. While usually these are urban fantasy, we can’t resist a great horror novel. Brenna Yovanoff creates a creepy world where children may be replaced with creatures from the underworld in The Replacement.
