New E-Book Release: Spider Wars: Book 3 of the Black Bead Chronicles by J.D. Lakey

Did you pick up J.D. Lakey’s Black Bead: Book One of the Black Bead Chronicles when it was on sale for only 99 cents last week, as celebration for the upcoming Spider Wars: Book Three of the Black Bead Chronicles? (Here is my post, in case you missed it). Well, I hope you did! Because today is that day! Spider Wars: Book Three of the Black Bead Chronicles has been released!

If you would like to learn more about J.D. Lakey, here is an interview I did with her earlier this year.


About the Book:

Winter is a time of quiet industry under the domes. At least it should be. Calamity is stalking the tribes of the high forests. The storms have killed too many of them, man and animal alike and now the bennelk warn of a new threat coming at them from out of the Wastes. Follow Blackwind Pack on their third adventure as Cheobawn and Connor use their wits and their Luck as they explore the wild world in which they live.






*** Spider Wars is available today!!! ***

B1kheVx5vNS._UX250_About the Author:

J.D. Lakey was born and raised on the high plains of Montana under an endless sky and as far from civilization as anyone in the twentieth century could get. There she explored the finer nuances of silence and the endless possibilities of the imagination. The stories were always there. The shifting of fortunes finally granted her the time to gather all the stories and give them flesh.

An avid reader of science fiction and comics, she currently lives in San Diego, California where she divides her time between her writing, commuting on the I-5, and spending time with her delightful grandchildren.

Readceron 26: My Experience, Highlights, Autographs, and Book Haul

This post is a little bit over due. I have been incredibly busy as of late. Like, way too much. (Barely even time time to read!) Sorry for the delay.

The weekend before last, from July 10 – July 12, I was attending Readercon 26 in Burlington, MA!

I got to listen to a ton interesting panels, sat in on a couple different author readings, got to meet and talk to a bunch of authors I was a fan of (and get their autographs!), met a couple new authors (got their autographs and books too!), bought way too many books, and got to attend The 2014 Shirley Jackson Awards!

Interview with DJ (MyLifeMyBooksMyEscape)

Yesterday I was fortunate enough to be interviewed by S.C. Flynn over at his blog. If you happen to be interested in learning a little bit more about me and my bookish and blogging ways, give it read 🙂

S.C. Flynn

This evening I am hanging out withDJ from the SFF book blog MyLifeMyBooksMyEscape.

SCy-Fy: You are one of the new generation of bloggers, DJ. How do you approach it?

DJ: I’m not currently working due to a couple of injuries, so in terms of my reading and book life, I’m actually quite fortunate because I don’t have a set schedule and my time is extremely flexible. But this is generally how most days go:

It all starts with a big cup of coffee. Grab that and go sit down at the computer, where I’ll check my e-mail, blogroll and see what’s good. Then I usually spend the rest of the morning reading a book or writing up a review if I need to. Later at night I’ll sit down for the Sox’s game, check out the blogs and websites again, and finish reading what I opened in the…
