Smugglers Stash

Howdy folks! As of right now, I’m saying hi to y’all from a sandy beach in Maui. That’s right. So while I drink something fruity and impossibly alcoholic, I give you the updates for this week at The Book Smugglers!

First, An Announcement:

This week, we gave away two copies of Susan Holloway Scott’s new novel, The French Mistress and we are proud to announce the two winners:

Adrienne (Comment #7)
Estella (Comment #13)

Please send an email to contact AT thebooksmugglers DOT com with your snail mail address, and we will make sure to send your winnings out to you as soon as possible!

Around The Interwebs:

Sound the alarm! It seems that a new date has been set for Patrick Rothfuss’s long awaited sequel, The Wise Man’s Fear. At least, it’s available now for pre-order on Amazon UK (not Amazon US, however), with a release date of April 15, 2010. Of course, this just might be an Amazon money making ploy…but we’re hopeful.

Also, check out this new interview with Patrick Rothfuss, courtesy of Sci Fi London.

The blog Moonlight, Lace and Mayhem is having a YA spotlight. Every Saturday, they have a YA Author talking about the genre. You can read all about it here.

And speaking of YA…

YA Appreciation Month:

From July 19 to August 15 , we will be discussing the merits of the genre, the apparent boom of YA literature, and the crossover appeal of YA novels. Guest authors and bloggers will be talking about their reasons for writing and reading YA and how the genre differs from books written for an adult audience.

And you can be a part of it: just check this post, an Open Invitation.

This Week on The Book Smugglers:

On Monday, Ana reviews thriller Echoes From the Dead by Johan Theorin.

Tuesday, Ana takes a look at Written on Your Skin by Meredith Duran.

On Wednesday, we have our Guest Dare for July as Liz takes on Principles of Angels by Jaine Fenn (initially she agreed to do Hyperion by Dan Simmons, but after a bit into the book decided against it)…

Thursday, Ana takes on One Week As Lovers by Victoria Dahl.

And finally on Friday, Thea takes on Apocalypse 2012 by Gary Jennings.

Until tomorrow!

    Maui? Thea – I think it is extraordinarly cruel to tease me about sun and warmth when it’s the middle of winter where I am 🙁 I’ll just have to put lots of wood on the fire tonight and pretend 🙂

    Congrats Adrienne and Estella!

    […] you live without them? Of course, but don’t you feel happier wearing them? What about that little umbrella in your drink – doesn’t it taste better with it? I sure think it does! And, everything tastes better […]
