All my friends are getting published!

I love the title of my blog! The last few months have been an absolute whirlwind of good news for so many of my friends. Now, I just have to catch up on all the good reading!
I finally finished The Historian. It was a great book, and really rich in detail, but not a fast read for me. I started reading it back in November and only finished it a couple of weeks ago. (I do have the Holidays to blame for some of that slow reading, btw) As Mel can attest, I didn't know much about vampire lore (you mean they're undead?) until I read this book. Watching Dark Shadows as a kid apparently didn't educate me enough. I hear Elizabeth Kostova got a cool $2 million advance on the book and that it's being made into a movie. I'll definitely want to see that.

But I'm rambling here. Back to the point of my blog, because unfortunately, I don't know Elizabeth Kostova. The Warrior Trainer is finally out! You might remember that Gerri's fabulous book was the winner of the American Title 2 contest. I just got my copy and can't wait to sink my teeth into it.

Another wonderful read out is Kate Pearce's Antonia's Bargain. I read an early version of this and can't wait to read the finished results. The cover is absolutely gorgeous!

I'll have to try Gerri's book and of course I can't wait to read Kate's! The Historian is also on my to-read list. Too many books, too little time!

Last I looked, Gerri's book was up for vote for the online's reading group. It looks really good.

I've read Antonia's bargain -- loved it of course. Go Kate!

The Historian sounds fantastic. Though now the decision -- read it or watch the movie first.

Isn't it great to see your friends get published? It's awesome. :)

Thanks for the plug Maria! You are always great at finding the massive plot holes in my efforts and pointing them out so gently that I don't have to die from embarrassment!
