Countdown to Smugglivus: Week 1 Calendar

Finally, Smugglivus is Coming! (*mostly*)

On Monday, we start the official Countdown to Smugglivus (our crazy celebratory festival that starts Dec 26th. You can read about it here)and this is this week’s line up of guest authors coming to celebrate with us:

Monday – Joel Sutherland: editor of Fried! Fast Food, Slow Deaths- and writer of Frozen Blood (which Thea will be reviewing later on the same day). Joel was the first ever writer to contact us way back when we started the blog ,so who better than Joel to kick off the Countdown?

Tuesday – Maria Snyder: writer of the Study books (Poison Study . Magic Study and Fire Study) Maria will be talking about the books she read this year and a little bit about YA as a genre. She will be graciously offering a free signed copy of the new YA edition of Poison Study for one lucky winner.

Wednesday – Meredith Duran: writer of The Duke of Shadows , a historical romance novel who many hail as one of the best of the year. She will be talking about her faves of 2008 and about her next two releases.

Thursday – Loretta Chase: writer of Lord of Scoundrels, Your Scandalous Ways and many others. Loretta is currently very busy working on her WIP but she sent us a present (and boy, what a present): an exclusive (and totally awesome) excerpt of DON’T TEMPT ME, her July release.

Friday – Joanna Bourne: writer of one of the most talked about romance novels of 2008, The Spymaster’s Lady, she closes the week with her best of 2008.

And stay tunned for Saturday with the First Smugglivus Giveaway – more details to follow.
