Hello everyone and a Happy Sunday to all! I expect most of you will be in your Post-Halloween sugar coma so I will keep it sweet and short!
We are delighted to announce that Octavia Cade, the author of Book Smugglers Publishing’s The Mussel Eater will be a regular contributor to The Book Smugglers!
Our final Halloween Week 2015 post was published yesterday: THE CONSEQUENCES OF CONSUMPTION: WHEN WHAT WE EAT COMES BACK TO BITE US. This is the introductory part of a monthly food-and-horror series by Octavia that will be appearing on The Book Smugglers over the year ahead. We are very excited about the series and hope you are too!
Fangirl Happy Hour – Episode 25
Episode 25 of Fangirl Happy Hour is now live – Renay and Ana get their fangirling on as they talk about things they loved: Bitch Planet, a new, loud, feminist comic by writer Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist Valentine De Landro; The Martian with Matt Damon (and potato co-stars); and Ancillary Mercy by Ann Leckie, the book that made us cry and laugh, laugh and cry.
In the meantime, you can find Fangirl Happy Hour on the interwebs at their website or:
