Working on the next set of book reviews...

Okay, I should be working on writing the next book shouldn't I? Or on shopping (next job), cleaning, updating my resume (I just did that). But reading, that's what I do in between everything else, and book reviews are for keeping my reading vaguely organized. Waiting for the kettle to boil, the dryer to stop spinning, the web-page to load? That's all just perfect time for a few more pages--the kindle won't lose where I am, and I've tons of bookmarks lying around to be tucked into paperbacks.

Anyway, one of the books I'll be reviewing soon is Andy Gavin's The Darkening Dream, and the author just emailed letting me know it's free on kindle, just for today (well, and yesterday too, but that doesn't help you much). Here's what he told me about it:


The Darkening Dream is a chilling new dark fantasy novel by Andy Gavin, creator of Crash Bandicoot and Jak & Daxter, that has received rave reviews on Amazon and Goodreads and is FREE for two days only on Amazon Kindle (February 7th to 8th)! Download your FREE copy here: http://amzn.to/yTvZPG

Long-time readers of dark historical fantasy (Tim Powers, Guy Gavriel Kay, Katherine Kurtz) will appreciate the weaving together of mythology, occult, and religion, while younger readers and fans of HBO dramas (True Blood, Carnivàle) or urban fantasy (Laurell K. Hamilton, Kim Harrison, Jim Butcher) will be drawn to the twisted imagination, graphic action, and romantic tension.

Sounds like just my sort of thing. Don't you agree?
