Reviews Coming Up

I got a few more review copies in this week.  The prize of the bunch is a copy of “The Black Prism” by Brent Weeks, but I’m also excited about reading “Fungus of the Heart” by Jeremy C. Shipp (Fungus isn’t even listed on Amazon yet!).  Of course, I have to finish the book I’m reading right now first!

I’ve also got a few non-fiction books that I’ll be reviewing over the next few weeks.  Several of them are books from the “skinny on” series.  Pretty good books, and they are shorter than most (about 100 pages), so I should be able to crank through them rather quickly.

Plenty to read around here.  It never seems like I make a dent into my “to be read” pile.  Not that I’m complaining about having too many books to read.  That’s not a condition that truly exists outside of my wife’s mind. 😉

    Great site with great info. I have a new novel coming out this month, Running Out the Hurt from Black Rose. I’ll gladly send a review copy if your interested. Here’s a ñquick look at what it’s about:
    Running away from his failures in trying to compete with professional baseball stars, fifteen-year-old Alejandro Lòpez winds up destitute in a seaside city in western Mexico. Although the runaway Cuban attempts to conceal his abilities on the diamond several members of a ragtag semi-pro team—the San Arturo Zancudos—drag him back into playing the sport he loves. An instant success, both on the field and with the town’s teenaged flirts he sparks the formerly last-place has-beens into a contender for the league championship.
    “Baseball the way it should be played!” enthuses the team’s quirky leftfielder as he and the oddball collection of ballplayers battle, lie, joke and celebrate both on and off the field. Their antics—and successes on the diamond—spark a contagious community following until Alejandro’s abilities attract the attention of Major League scouts and his illegal immigration status is revealed.
    Alejandro is forced to choose between a professional contract to play in the United States and staying with the team. His decision and the responses of his teammates provide a dramatic climax to an entertaining and vivid look at baseball, at Mexico, and at how human relationships struggle and prosper.
