I am now reading "In the woods" by Tana French. I have owned this book for months, but I find that working in a library, I tend to read library books first on the assumption that if I own a book I'll get to it 'someday'. It is only because my book group chose this title that I finally picked it up. What a nice surprise! I'm about half way through and I'm really enjoying it. I already purchased the sequel "The likeness". I confess I have over a hundred titles here at home that I haven't read yet. I hope my eyesight holds out until I retire.

Just finished a fabulous book by a new author.
"Sacrifice" by S.J. Bolton
It is very exciting to find debut novels that promise riches to come.

Hi Lynne, Welcome. As a Canadian, you might be interested to know that my upcoming book - Flight of the Hornbill - is loosely based on the Bre-X gold fraud in Indonesia.

On pseudonyms--I've used so many, I've lost count.

I use different names for each genre and subgenre.

Has anyone read "The calling" by Inger Ash Wolfe?
I really enjoyed it.
I wonder though WHY did this author use a pseudonym? We can speculate that they have changed genres and want a fresh perspective from their readers, or perhaps they just want to generate some 'hype' to sell more books.

I picked this title for the intriguing sounding blurb, before I realized it was a pseudonym. It sounded like a character driven plot, which are my favorite kind...
What are your views on pseudonyms? (and this one in particular)
At 11:28pm on July 9, 2008, JackBludis said…
Writers love those people who are readers. It seems that lately readers are in short supply.

Lynne,
