Hello! Our hearts ache for the awful events taking place in Beirut, Paris and Japan this week. Will just keep to business today.
Spindle City Serials:
Two weeks ago we published The Case of the Little Bloody Slipper by Carlie St. George, the first story in our Spindle City Mystery series. We also announced the start of a new program, Spindle City Serials (a brand new way to get your fix of Jimmy and Jack every week as they take on the nefarious characters who work Spindle’s dark underbelly): with a subscription ($4.99 total), you receive serialized episode-sized chunks of the next two books in the Spindle City series delivered to your inbox every Monday morning. AND, at the end of each story arc (2 arcs of 3 episodes each), you’ll receive a DRM-free ebook of the full story as part of your subscription (including a copy of Bloody Slipper, on us).
Episode 2 of The Price You Pay is Red goes out tomorrow – if you haven’t signed up yet, you still can since upon signing up you get links to all previous episodes.
(You’ll be taken to paypal, and will automatically be signed up to receive episodes!)
This Week on The Book Smugglers:
On Monday, we reveal the full cover for Spindle City Mystery #2, The Price You Pay is Red and the ebook (which contains an exclusive short story set in the same world from Jack’s perspective) will also be up for pre-order.
On Tuesday, we post our joint review of Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. We will try not too fangirl too hard, we swear.
On Wednesday, we review another highly anticipated book of 2015, The Scorpion Rules by Erin Bow.
And on Thursday, we will be chatting with Icelandic writer Andri Snær Magnason
On Friday, we close out the week with Ana over at Kirkus with a review of The Seventh Bride. Friends, this was AMAZING.
And that’s it for today! As usual, we remain…
