Today is the last day you can enter the Birthday Bash giveaway. If you haven't done so already then you need to because there are a ton of books being given away. For details see here.
I've finished up another week of editing. With the exception of one day where I wrote the intro to Bespoken (poor Prometheus), all I've done this month is editing and I'm still not done. I keep telling myself to write smaller books. The longer the book, the longer it takes me to put it all together in a bow.
Unlike July and August, I've done a descent amount of reading. Not a whole lot. Three-to-four-hour reads are taking me a couple of days to get through, but I at least can read through a book or two in a week. So I need to put a post together for that before I forget about it.
Other than that, it's been rather boring around the house. I'm going to busy boxing book bundles up for the Bash's giveaway for a couple of days. I'm going to need a dolly to take stuff to the post office. :) If I remember, I'll take and post the picks. I'm trying not to think about the postage.

Blurb: San Francisco hasn’t been the same since the Great Shake of ’08. On the ruins of Fisherman’s Wharf, a ramshackle city rises like a mushroom, a strange dichotomy of safety and corruption. In this forbidden city, a monster prowls the corridors and alleys, seeking the nanite-enhanced flesh and blood of underground cage fighters.
Detective Annie Tanaka once survived an encounter with the monster. The attack left her clinging to life and riddled with fear. Now the monster has returned, and he’s hunting in her territory. She’ll need every weapon in her arsenal to face this enemy and prevail.
Unfortunately for Annie, her mentor, a legendary fight master, hasn’t been seen in decades, and her unwilling partner is next on the monster’s menu. Annie soon realizes her real enemy is not the monster, but her own fear. And against that fear, Annie must stand alone.

Blurb: Atlantis is besieged by violent storms, tremors, and a barbarian army. For sixteen-year-old Aerander, it’s a calamitous backdrop to his Panegyris, where boys are feted for their passage to manhood.
Amid a secret web of romances among the celebrants, Aerander's cousin Dam goes missing with two boys. With the kingdom in crisis, no one suspects the High Priest Zazamoukh, though Aerander uncovers a conspiracy to barter boys for dark spiritual power. Aerander's proof— an underground vault that disappears in the morning—brings shame on his family and charges of lunacy. The only way for Aerander to regain his honor is to prove what really happened to the missing boys.
Tracking Dam leads Aerander on a terrifying and fantastical journey. He spots a star that hasn’t been seen for centuries. He uncovers a legend about an ancient race of men who hid below the earth. And traveling to an underground world, he learns about matters even more urgent than the missing boys. The world aboveground is changing, and he will have to clear a path for the kingdom’s survival.
