Missed Periods and Other Grammar Scares

Great title, right? :) Author and grammarian, Jenny Baranick, has launched her grammar utility guide Missed Periods & Other Grammar Scares: How to Avoid Unplanned & Unwanted Grammar Errors. Not saying you need it (I do), but Jenny is hilarious and I'm sure her book  is equally entertaining... and useful... to some. :) You can check out Jenny's blog HERE, and pick up her book HERE.

Weighted Release Day!

Author Ciara Knight's latest is available now! Here are the deets:

Weighted (Prequel Novelette)

The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun. I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation. My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift. A gift I keep hidden even from myself. It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover. Will I have the strength to keep the secret? I’ll know the answer soon. If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.

Upcoming books in The Neumarian Chronicles:

Escapement (Book I) - Early 2013
Pendulum (Book II) - Mid 2013
Balance (Book III) - Early 2014

Other books by Cara Knight:

Battle for Souls Series
Ascension of Evil - Coming in October
