I have a fun new blog to bring to your attention, the brand-new Smart Girls Love SciFi Blog. Charlie, the proprietress, is a member of my RWA chapter, so I actually know her in real life. (Or, I will at our next meeting, I’m sure.) Here’s her blog:

Smart Girls Love SciFi

What she has done so far is very fun and promising!

I’ve also been asked to give a shout-out for Daniel Rabuzzi‘s The Choir Boats, which is available as a free download for the month of July. There’s still time! It’s WOWIO’s Book of the Month. Here’s a tidbit from the promo:

“Reviewers describe it as “Gulliver’s Travels crossed with The Golden Compass and a dollop of Pride and Prejudice,”  and “a muscular, Napoleonic-era fantasy that, like Philip Pullman’s Dark Materials series, will appeal to both adult and young adult readers.”  The Choir Boats was selected by January Magazine as a Top Ten YA Novel for 2009.”

I’ve already downloaded it; now I need to zap it into my nook.
