A Call For Swag Plus H&H
The topic du jour will be new and upcoming romance releases, plus what is hot and trendy at the moment. I thought it might be fun to offer up some swag for attendees. So romance authors - if you have swag you'd like to unload (and if you have a recent or fall release, even better!) please e-mail me if you're interested in sending me some goodies. Again, the program is October 11, and the last time I did a program at this location about a dozen folks showed up. So really, I wouldn't need a ton of stuff. Well, except for maybe bookmarks. I'm sure the library would love any leftover bookmarks.
Heroes & Heartbreakers. First, my monthly round-up of unusual historicals - which Holy Hannah, Samhain decided to publish several westerns this past month. Huzzah!
And speaking of westerns - I've got a First Look of the latest Rosanne Bittner offering, Desperate Hearts. This isn't a traditional review, per se - more like an extended glimpse of what the story is about. For me, personally, it wasn't one of Bittner's finer offerings. It was one of those City Gal Heads To Middle Of Nowhere And Has No Clue What She's Gotten Herself Into stories - and honestly, I'm just not a fan of those. I read westerns to get away from heroines like that, so this read like an extended Rescue Fantasy to me and.....meh. But if you like that sort of plot - then certainly worth a look. In the meantime, I'm looking forward to next summer when Sourcebooks will be reprinting one of Bittner's Old School meaty sagas, Outlaw Hearts.
