Poltergeeks Book Tour – Guest Post


*Cue drumroll* Today’s guest star on the blog is author Sean Cummings, who is visiting all the way from the great white north, Canada. Sean is the author of several urban fantasy novels and has this year taken the plunge into young adult fiction with his novel Poltergeeks, coming out soon from Strange Chemistry, the shiny new young adult imprint of Angry Robot Books. You can find my review of the novel here. And without further ado, here’s the man himself, talking about both his new book and the new genre he is tackling.

Miriam Black: Mockingbird by Chuck Wendig – Book Review [Bane of Kings]


Bane of Kings writes a review of Chuck Wendig’s second novel featuring the strong, independent female lead Miriam Black, entitled Mockingbird, published by Angry Robot Books. This review presumes that the reader is already familiar with Blackbirds, the first novel in the Miriam Black series.

“A dark and gritty page-turner. Wendig’s second Miriam Black novel is a brilliant read and just as enjoyable as  the first.” ~The Founding Fields
