Assorted News and Links

There are a couple of links I've been meaning to write about and they keep collecting so I figured I may as well just aggregate them all instead of making separate posts.

After the flooding in Nashville, Tennessee, the schools really need children's books as well as storage bins. There are also wish lists on Barnes and Noble (mostly books for younger children) and Amazon (mainly books for YA/older children) for specific books that they would like replaced. To read more about how to help there is a very informative post on the Reader with a Capital "R" blog.

Ilona Andrews announced the title for Kate Daniels #5 will be Magic Slays. Although I'm a little worried about it based on a comment made in another post.

Ilona Andrews also provided a link to a collection of the stories written from Curran's point of view available to read online. (Yeah, so I've been obsessively checking for release date news on book 5.)

Regal Literary has a summer giveaway for the Fourth Realm trilogy by John Twelve Hawks (contest rules state it is only available to US residents). They are giving away 5 signed hardcover sets and 10 signed paperback sets.

And thank you for the Curran POV links. I know what I'll be doing tonight :)

Orannia - I know, that made me panicky too! The post about what the book was about was up first and that worried me... But then when I saw the title and that they thought it was very fitting, it just made me more nervous. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

How are the Curran point of view stories? I've caught a couple on the author's blog but I haven't read any of the collection yet.
