Keep and Eye Out for this one!

I want to thank my bookish pal, Jess, over at book reviews by Jess for bringing this one to my attention! Shannon Delany's debut novel, 13 TO LIFE: A Werewolf's Tale, hits shelves June 22, 2010. I haven't read it yet, but it's near the top of my picks for the new year and I wanted to get the word out to you because it sounds too cool to miss. Who doesn't love Russian werewolves in a pretty book cover?

**If we're lucky, Ms. Delany may stop in for a visit so leave her some comments!!!**

Summary fromShannon’s web site (I copied this from Jess's blog and stole her holly berries, mwahahahahah!)

Something strange is stalking the small town of Junction…
When junior Jess Gillmansen gets called out of class by Guidance, she can only presume it’s for one of two reasons. Either they’ve finally figured out who wrote the scathing anti-jock editorial in the school newspaper or they’re hosting yet another intervention for her about her mom. Although far from expecting it, she’s relieved to discover Guidance just wants her to show a new student around—but he comes with issues of his own including a police escort.
The newest member of Junction High, Pietr Rusakova has secrets to hide--secrets that will bring big trouble to the small town of Junction—secrets including dramatic changes he’s undergoing that will surely end his life early.
His name is pronounced as Peter. Some of you may be questioning his last name as I did (Shannon, don't hate me!) but rest assured, Ms. Delany assures us it was not a casual error. There is a reason for Peitr to have a feminine surname. Just as there is a reason I have a masculine one!

Hi Jessica--looks like we've got a berry thief among us! ;-) I'm so glad you can't wait to read 13 TO LIFE -- I can't wait to start signing copies for folks I've been lucky enough to run into online. The enthusiasm I've already received is SO cool. :-)

Hey Laurie! I appreciate you putting my debut novel on your to-get list. :-) It means a bunch to me to know you're going to pick up a copy. You'll have to let me know what you think of it after your read it (I, meanwhile, will simply hope and pray you like it--lots! ;-).

Thanks so much to our lovely hostess for mentioning my upcoming novel. *hugs*
