My 2 Cents

Pimping My Friends

There is news I'm dying to talk about but cannot yet until Certain Things Happen. So, instead, I'm going to pimp my friends.

First up is Cherie Priest AKA cmpriest. I was just talking to a friend about how much I enjoyed her Eden Moore (Four and Twenty Black Birds, Wings to the Kingdom, and Not Flesh Nor Feathers) series. Mostly because I got to say, "C'mon, they blow up zombies in the third book of the series with fireworks! How cool is that?" Actually, not really. I really enjoyed the series a lot. It is Southern horror at its best. I mentioned that I was getting off my butt to finally read her book Dreadful Skin about an Irish werewolf hunting nun. Well, I have and I love it! So, if you haven't read any of the books mentioned, do so!

Second is Seanan McGuire AKA seanan_mcguire. I had the pleasure of meeting her at BayCon 2008 while I was doing panels with her. She is a multi-talented lass. Singer and author. I accidentally walked into one of her concerts at BayCon and didn't leave. Bought her CD Stars Fall Home before I left. I'm finally getting around to listening to it and I love it. She's got a wonderful voice and a wicked sense of humor. I can't wait for her next CD to come out, too.

I know there's more to pimp but these are the two people who talent I've experienced in the last two days. So, feel free to pimp your stuff here in comments.
