Suzanne Brockmann‘s posted an “Extras” booklet for her Force of Nature book (August 2007) – scroll to the bottom of the page to download. Warning – it’s approx 28 MB in size, so watch out if you’ve a slow Internet connection. It has a brand-new Sam and Alyssa short story (with Jules), plus an POV article for writers.
I decided to try reading it using Adobe Digital Editions, which I downloaded the other day, and realised the major downside of its slick black background is that it shows up all the smudges on my laptop screen in bright sunlight. Bah.
Naomi Novik‘s posted an excerpt from her upcoming Temeraire book “Empire of Ivory” (September 2007) on her website. Just reading the first few sentences reminds me of how much I’m looking forward to it.
Here’s a rather long interview with Stephenie Meyer (via Locus Online Blinks) – she doesn’t give anything away on “Eclipse” (out August 2007), but it’s an interesting read if you’re a fan. The next JK Rowling?
