Consigned to Death - Jane K. Cleland

I liked this, I think...
Josie was cool and looked like she would be great to work for. But beyond the workplace, I don't know if I could deal with all the crying. Luckily I wasn't alone regarding the crying based on feedback from others.
The story dragged in spots. *yawn*
With exception of Josie, Max and Chief Alvarez, I was suspicious of the rest of the characters. I really thought some of the staff were involved with the murder and theft. Even the well placed red herring with Sasha threw me for a fool.
Thank gawd Max was married. If not, I would have thought there was some sort of love Geometry a'brewing with him, Josie and Alvarez. Too bad. That means I have no math related issues to bitch about.
I'm not sure if I will read the rest of the series. Maybe Josie and her gang will grow on me if I do.

NEW RELEASE - Consigned to the Sea


Dark Quest Books and Author Danielle Ackley-McPhail are proud to present her newest solo collection, Consigned to the Sea, stories of mystical, nautical fiction where our heroines pit themselves against pirates, witches, and the forces of nature. The book will officially launch at a Book Launch to be held at this year’s Lunacon (www.lunacon.org).


’Tis Said We All Return to Whence We Began…


Is it any wonder then why so many are drawn to the sea? Throughout the history of Man the crash of the waves has been a siren song…a promise…a curse. Above the waves is a challenge that makes or breaks many a man or woman. Below is another world both magical and menacing.


In Consigned to the Sea you will find the vast spectrum of what the oceans have to offer. The wonder of a mermaid yearning to reach the sky… The wrath of the selkie protecting its own… A dragon waging war against pirates…


Whether you root for the sailor or the sea, here is a collection you can treasure.


“Dripping with tension, Consigned to the Sea is a powerful tale with interesting twists toward the end and a strong lead. Recommended.”—Bryan Thomas Schmidt, Rise Reviews


102 pages | $9.95 | 978-1-937051-96-9

Well...the insanity that is Kickstarter is done for me...for now anyway. A thanks go out to all the supporters of the Athena's Daughters Kickstarter I've been going on about for weeks. The fundraiser was a resounding success that managed to fully fund not only the original anthology we were going for, but also two other companion volumes. Two of the books are guaranteed to be in hardcover as well as paperback, and with original artwork created specifically for the project.


For those who were not able to contribute, thank you for your extreme patience during this time when Athena's Daughters was virtually all I talked about.


Now on to other news! This is going to be a very busy year for book releases. I don't have release dates or cover blurbs yet, but here is some of what you can expect later this year (in no particular order):
