Obsessed..maybe?

Published October 14, 2014 by Book Junkette

Afternoon, my sweet strudels

Today’s post is about books..and how we catalogue them.

As for me, I’m old-fashioned.

While I do simply adore my Book Catalogue app, sadly only available on Android..

The deepest, darkest, Junkette pieces of me, requires ALL ebooks be logged..by HAND!

Now..we are talking over a hundred books, from LibraryThing Early Reviewers and Member Giveaways..ALONE.

That is not including my NetGalley ARCs, books on my Kindle, Nook, and Kobo apps.

Let alone what I have saved via Smashwords

Oi..close to five hundred..easy.

If I even thought of adding in my physical books..it’d be never ending.

I kind you not.

I’m in the process of revamping my Book Catalogue/LibraryThing/GoodReads, with my books..

Obsessed?

Me?

Never. >~>

Can’t ever prove anything!! Bwahahahahhaa!!

Erm, sorry. Book Junkette moment.

So I throw this to you, my adoring crumpets, what is your level of book obsession?

Are you like me?

Taking apart old notebooks, to give them new life?

Or is your inner Junkie/Junkette satisfied with a easier yet less amusing method?

Amusing..because of a certain weasel, name’s Creature Who Rules this House..steals my pens with their grips, to sacrifice to her ‘God’.

Sound off, my pumpkins!

I want to hear all the odd and unique ways to list our beloved books!

About the Zombie West Omnibus

Zombie West Omnibus Angela ScottThe Wild West is hard enough to survive with its native territory, wanted outlaws, and harsh terrain, but with a plague turning civilized people into brain-eating monsters, survival becomes nearly impossible.

Red has lost everything to the fast-spreading disease: her family, her trust in mankind, and her hope for a better tomorrow. When she meets Trace, a smooth-talking gambling man who’s more city boy than cowboy, she’s forced down a path she’d been avoiding for years. Until his arrival, she’d lived by a certain set of rules don’t ask names, keep to yourself, don’t let anyone too close but the jackass of a man won’t let her be, and he has an uncanny knack for appearing at all the wrong times and in all the wrong places.

Each, with a secret of their own, will need to learn that only by working together do they have any chance of surviving The Zombie West.

That is, if they don’t kill each other first.

[Angela Scott’s Zombie West Omnibus includes the three books in the Zombie West series WANTED: DEAR OR UNDEAD, SURVIVOR ROUNDUP, and DEAD PLAINS. Find these books on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and Smashwords.]

Genre classification: YA/Western Romance/Action and Adventure/ with added zombies for utter mayhem.

About Angela Scott

Angela ScottAngela Scott hears voices. Tiny fictional people sit on her shoulders and whisper their stories in her ear. Instead of medicating herself, she decided to pick up a pen, write down everything those voices tell me, and turn it into a book. She’s not crazy. She’s an author. For the most part, she writes contemporary Young Adult novels. However, through a writing exercise that spiraled out of control, she found herself writing about zombies terrorizing the Wild Wild West and loving it. Her zombies don’t sparkle, and they definitely don’t cuddle. At least, she wouldn’t suggest it. She lives on the benches of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains with two lovely children, one teenager, and a very patient husband. She graduated from Utah State University with a B.A. degree in English, not because of her love for the written word, but because it was the only major that didn’t require math. She can’t spell, and grammar is her arch nemesis. But they gave her the degree, and there are no take backs.

UM Teaser

Marchant Radcliffe, owner of the exclusive Love Inc. brothel outside Vegas, is no stranger to darkness. He lost his sister in childhood and his parents in college. Since his best friend helped him finance the Love Inc. ranch almost ten years ago, Marchant has drowned himself in business—and he’s thrived, despite the heavy secret that has plagued him since his parents’ deaths.

Then, after ten years of good fortune, Marchant’s skeletons start to peek out of the closet, tossing him down a trail of ruin that begins with arson and could end with murder. Because he’s kept his struggles private, he has no one to pull him back from the brink.

Except for Suri Dalton.

After a breakup with her longtime fiancé, Suri, the daughter of one of Silicon Valley’s tech tycoons, has nowhere to go except her BFF’s new penthouse in Las Vegas. The last thing Suri is looking for is a man, but after drowning her woes in wine on the flight over, she stumbles into a torrid make out session with a beautiful stranger—who just so happens to be Marchant Radcliffe, a playboy and a literal pimp.

Despite an immediate attraction, Suri writes Marchant off as exactly the sort of guy she should avoid. Until Love Inc. goes up in flames, Marchant winds up at the bottom of a swimming pool, and Suri is the only one around to pull him out.

What happens when what you see isn’t what you get? What do you do when destiny is too alluring to resist and too dangerous to survive?

Soul of Flame release date!!

Published January 10, 2014 by Book Junkette

Author Rebecca Ethington has some big news to share about her Imdalind series! Check out the video below where Rebecca Ethington shares a special message. 🙂

About Soul of Flame…

Book Four in the Imdalind Series, expected release February 2014.

The Time for the final battle has come. Edmund’s armies have surrounded the Rioseco Abbey, trapping the few survivors inside. The sight that Ilyan was given a thousand years ago is about to come to pass. If only Joclyn was able to fight. Joclyn is tormented by the hallucinations that Cail’s mind has left her with, her magic an uncontrollable torrent that even Ilyan cannot control. Her moments of lucidity are broken by fears of dripping pipes and bleeding walls, and a desire to kill Ryland that she is having trouble trying to ignore. The sight has shown her power, shown her success, but it has also shown her death – The end of her life something she is not quite willing to give up on yet. Even past her death, the sight has shown her love, and that love may be the only key to her sanity, to her strength, and to Edmund’s death. That love may stand in her way, and a single choice may tip the scales and secure their future, or destroy their fate.

Release Date: February 17th 2014

““You deserve to die!” The tanned skin of his face slowly faded to white before the red of his lips painted blue. He clawed at his neck as an invisible force squeezed the life out of him. I only smiled as I watched him fight it, knowing it was pointless, knowing I wouldn’t let him get away.

Arrrrrgh!!!

Published September 8, 2013 by Book Junkette

Argh!
As you can probably tell, I’m a tad frustrated.

Well, more than a tad.

I have blogger’s block!!

I have two reviews for a sweet author, but I cannot think of a thing to write!!

Ergh!!

So incredibly frustrating.

Would anyone care to bring by some Starbucks of the pumpkin variety, by chance?

So happy it will *hopefully* start cooling down soon in this desert that masquerades as a town.

Ick. Heat sucks!!
