One of my favorite lines from Despicable Me. Love those minions!

And I say it now because I can't believe how many friends are publishing books these days! Here are just a few I am celebrating today (with Vikki's weekly Celebrate the Small Things)

Cherie Riech!
This fantasy short story collection features five men from the Kingdom of Foxwick.

A blind teen seeks a place in the kingdom. A dragon seer journeys to Wintermill to spy on the queen. A sword master’s worst fear comes true when he fails to protect the royal family. A king falls in love with an herb witch, but will she feel the same way? A hunter will rise to the challenge to hunt down a man-eating monster.

Here's how you can get MEN OF FOXWICK for $0.99!

What harm can come from a kiss?

Caine Fordham knows the danger all too well.

As the Kill Circuit’s top lady-killer, business is good. Yet Caine knows the life of an assassin isn’t meant to last forever, just as love is impossible for him. Who could love a man with poison lacing his veins and a kiss that kills?

When Caine decides to take one last job, deal out one last kiss, he discovers there’s more to life than death, and more to love than pain.

Here's how to buy ATONE on Amazon!

and soon to be released by
Peggy Eddleman!
12 year old Hope lives in White Rock, a town struggling to recover from the green bombs of World War III. The bombs destroyed almost everything that came before, so the skill that matters most in White Rock—sometimes it feels like the only thing that matters—is the ability to invent so that the world can regain some of what it’s lost.

But Hope is terrible at inventing and would much rather sneak off to cliff dive into the Bomb's Breath— the deadly band of air that covers the crater the town lives in— than fail at yet another invention.

When bandits discover that White Rock has invented priceless antibiotics, they invade. The town must choose whether to hand over the medicine and die from disease in the coming months or to die fighting the bandits now. Hope and her friends, Aaren and Brock, might be the only ones who can escape through the Bomb’s Breath and make the dangerous trek over the snow-covered mountain to get help. For once, inventing isn't the answer, but the daring and risk-taking that usually gets Hope into trouble might just save them all.

Put SKY JUMPERS on your Goodreads want to read list!

Don't those sound great!
And yesterday, I got the best surprise from my wonderful friend, C.D. Coffelt, aka Huntress. She wrote (and then tweeted about) the best post promoting Pop Travel! She wrote a super fresh blurb and made me wanna cry, it was so good! I can't wait for her to get a cover for her soon to be released book so I can show it off!

She also advertised Heather and my blog hop coming up on Monday...
The Thrill of It All!
Still time to sign up and tell us what thrills you!
Prizes to be awarded Friday, June 28.

We've been waiting for Peggy's book for about two years, can't believe it's nearly here! Didn't it used to be called Through the Bomb's Breath? Either way it sounds amazing, and congrats to Cherie and Angela too. :)

I loved Despicable Me so much I can't wait to see the sequel! I hope he reads my favorite book again..."Three little kittens..."

Huntress said...

Holy Cats! It sure is nice having friends who love (and write) the same kind of books I enjoy. How convenient, LOL.

Love Despicable Me. I can't think of a better name for those little fellers than 'minions'.

I have my cover but don't have a Reveal timetable. When do I splash it onto my blog? ARGGGHHh. Is two months ahead of the release too soon? questions questions.
