Very pleased with this photograph. Also, ursulav, this one's for you. :)

I read a second (not the second, as I didn't have it, but a second) ROGUE ANGEL book, and sadly it wasn't nearly as good as the first one. I'd be willing to pick up others on the chance that I would get the Right Alex Archer, or at least a Good Alex Archer, but if the font size/line spacing is indicative, I should be able to tell the good from the less good by simply skipping the ones printed in larger font. Oh, and I read two Stephanie Bond books, BODY MOVERS and its..."sequel" is the wrong word. "Continuation" is more accurate, as the second book, 2 BODIES FOR THE PRICE OF 1, picks up with literally the same sentence the first book ends with. They're quick reads, pretty enjoyable, and I'll look for more books in the series. In fact, I'll even try to find PARTY CRASHERS, in which the main character of the Body Movers books is a secondary character, 'cause I'd like to read the backstory referred to in the Body Movers books. That's a writer who's doing her job well. :)

Mom and Dad are visiting for the weekend, so I prolly won't be around much once I've sent copy edits off to my editor (a whole week early!). I'm sure you're all devastated, but I hope you'll be brave and bear up under my absence. :)

Given your own writing style, you're prolly already familiar with these ladies, but since I've pimped your books to them...
Tanya Huff's Blood Books and, well, all her books
Rachel Caine's Weather Warden and Morganville Vampire books.

I love reading book people's LJs because I learn about new authors to read. On the theory that if I like your writing, I'm almost certainly gonna like what you read *G*.

Oh, thank you! I was pretty happy with that one too. *beams*

Well, if you want to know who writes which books (so that you can see if it's a case of liking one writer and not the other), go to the copyright page. You'll see, near the top, a line thanking xx for their assistance (or similar crap). XX is the writer for that book. So far, they've been alternating between Mel Odom and Victor Milan. But as I mentioned in a comment when you read the first one, Michelle Hauf of Bombshell fame will be writing a forthcoming volume. I can't wait to see what she does with Anja.

This is what they do with all the write-for-hire Gold Eagle books. I use that to quick check the Bolan/Stony Farm books, since there are writers that rock (Mike Linaker, Nick Pollotta, etc) and some that... well, don't. (I don't bother with the Deathlands or Outlander series).

Me, I've enjoyed most of them as fluffy reads. I'm currently reading book 7, God of Thunder. My only complaint so far is that one character is such a Marty Stu (rich writer who bankrolls everything so he can follow Anja around as research for a new book)
