New Books from Darynda Jones and Jeffe Kennedy

Saturday I went to the book signing for fellow LERA members Darynda Jones and Jeffe Kennedy at Page One Books here in Albuquerque.

Jeffe Kennedy signed for the next book in her The Twelve Kingdoms series, “The Talon of the Hawk.” She said that she pitched her first book in the series as “The Middle Princess” because in the fairy tale the eldest and youngest princesses always get a story, but the middle princess never does.

Darynda Jones signed for the next in her Charley Davidson series, “Eighth Grave After Dark.” (I also picked up the previous book “Seventh Grave and No Body.” I’m a wee bit behind.) Darynda said that when she first started writing the series she envisioned it being about Charley, the Grim Reaper, slowly but surely coming in to her full power. What readers really responded to was the world-building and that led to the expansion of the series into the layered, multi-character universe fans know and love.

So now I have some exciting new books to read to distract me from my synopsis writing nightmare.

I mean, Stephen King said, “If you don’t have the time to read, you don’t have the time or the tools to write.”

I love when I can justify my excuses.
