So exciting! I have no doubt both books will find much success.

Belinda said...

Sounds like great books. Congrats!

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Oh, love the edgy fantasy cover. What a tough female MC! Congrats on the book releases! (I swear, I'm not just saying that to win a free book, even if I would totally do that.)

Paul Neuhardt said...

Congratulations to both. Always great to see a new book hit the shelves.

Maryann Miller said...

Congratulations to both authors. What an exciting day!! I really like the covers for both books, very enticing, the way a good cover should be. :-)

Thanks to your blog, I've been looking forward to Total Oblivion, More or Less. I forgot the release date and asked at B&N for "the book that's reddish with a black dog on it", and they handed me some woman's memoir with a poodle on it. Eh, nope.

stephanie said...

Best wishes for successful releases to both authors. Kudos to entire the entire team.

Lisa Iriarte said...

I'm commenting because I haven't had a chance to order Better Part of Darkness yet. So, if I'm randomly picked, I'll donate the Total Oblivion to my husband's classroom library.

okay, i'll play, even though i annoy the crap out of you. :-) i'd love to read the books, they sound good.

Turbo said...

Huzzah to the both of them! I had a chance to meet Alan at WFC -- quite a nice fellow, though bro needs to get comfortable shilling his own book, which as described to me, should be awesome.

Kiolia said...

Best of luck to them!

Selestial said...

I asked for one of these for the holidays, but if I end up with two copies, it just means I get to share :D

I'm always happy when agents blog about release days. Serves as a good reminder to me. ;-)

The Imperfect said...

I only know about either of these thanks to your blog. I love finding out about books and getting reminders this way. Thanks for the extra heads up. Two more books for the wish list.

ClothDragon said...

Both title sound very interesting. I'd almost ordered The Better Part of Darkness last week, but when changed to Rosemary and Rue when I noticed it wasn't quite released. I'll have to go back for this one and Kim Harrison's new to paperback one next time I get money for book-splurging! (Unless I win, then I can still read it and get to choose other books. Yay, books!)

Oh, but do they ship outside the US?

Whidget said...

Go lucky number 58! I am excited. I will probably get the Better Part of Darkness if I don't win it, so that probably means I won't win! Ha!

By the way, I was already interested in reading Total Oblivion, More or Less, but The Better Part of Darkness has a wicked cool cover. (And yes, I admit to judging books by their covers.)
