It's another Awesome Monday, where a fabulous new book is released by one of my writing friends. Today is the launch of Mary Pax's The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear.
The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear
A New Adult Urban Fantasy, The Renaissance of Hetty Locklear is the first book in a new series. And it’s now out! The main character, Hetty, is a twenty-two-year-old, stumbling about in an effort to become a full-fledged adult. She struggles with self-esteem, weight, relationships, and making the transition between college and the real world.
Graduation from community college isn’t the magic elixir Hetty Locklear counts on for becoming an adult. Her parents, who work the Renaissance fair circuit, insist she spend part of the summer with them. Hetty doubts pretending to live in the Middle Ages will help her find her way.
To make it worse, an entity haunts her at her dead-end job, warning her of a dangerous man she doesn’t know. The ghost leads her to a lover who has a lot of secrets. He pulls her farther into peril and into a strange, hidden world of genetic experimentation.
New Adult Urban Fantasy with a contemporary sci-fi twist. Mature content.

Passing Time News
Thank you to everyone who generously offered to help with the cover reveal and blog tour for Passing Time. I was touched that so many people wanted to take part. Deciding on the ten blog hosts was nearly impossible, as I did not want to turn anyone down. However, I have now selected and contacted ten bloggers.
Now for a big but (and it's a big one), I realised that in my eagerness to sort out the cover reveal and blog tour, I never asked if anyone could help launch my book on it's actual publication date, February 11th. I don't want much, do I? So, my friends, I am asking for your help once again.
Don't worry. If you do or have offered to help, I will keep track of who is doing what and when, will send out everything with plenty of time to spare, and send a gentle reminder near to each date. Also, I will be giving all those who take part in my cover reveal, blog tour, or book launch a little something to say thank you. And if there is anything I can do in return to help promote your book or event, please let me know.
Finally, the mighty Ninja Alex J. Cavanaugh will be this weeks Speculative Fiction Writer. Please call back on Wednesday to read his guest post on critique partners.
