Bookseekeragency announces:

Our client Carmen Capuano‘s new novel Split Decision has been taken up by P’kaboo Publishers, and is due out early in 2015. We’ll keep you posted. Meanwhile our congratulations go to Carmen, and also to P’kaboo on their choice!

Yes, P'kaboo are happy to verify this: Author Carmen Capuano has signed on for the publication of her YA novel "Split Decision".

We subjected the author to the P'kaboo Book Club on Facebook, and some reader questions.  Here is the post. If you are a fan of Carmen's or enjoy books in general, do check in on the P'kaboo Book Club; we have fun every Monday night, every time we do something different.  Sometimes we interview an author; sometimes we play a story game or rhyme; sometimes we discuss books.  The discussion does not die between Mondays but continues in relaxed Facebook-style commenting mode.

A more official author interview of Ms Capuano is posted at this link on the Bookseeker Agency's blog.

Carmen, welcome aboard!

Fairy Folk Christmas Market: We were there

Our stand: In the garden (Kitten and Moon Flower by Robin Shea)

Our book stand indoors

Some of the goodies there

Some more goodies

The Fairy Room

More fairies
Fairies in the garden

The stand next to ours: Activities for children, all led by the "Fairy Folk" who run this fair and who have a children's party business.

One of the "Fairy Folk" in her full Party services getup.

It was an interesting and very lovely market.  Not entirely a book faire, but our books added a component that would most definitely have been missing.

Two books, reviewed by Nikki Mason of BestChickLit

Nikki Mason of Bestchicklit has blessed us with two more beautiful reviews.  Posted here are short excerpts from the reviews, but to read the full reviews please follow the links.

The first one is our youngest release, teen vampire fiction by Marie Marshall:

From My Cold Undead Hand – Marie Marshall

My Cold Undead Hand[...]
What we say – review by Nikki Mason:
What impressed me most about this book was that it was a vampire novel where vampires were unequivocally the bad guys. All the evil things you ever read about vampires from I Am Legend or Dracula come back to the fore in Marie Marshall’s novel, with no romanticism and no sexuality – just brutal, dead killers.
Chevonne is more than just a normal American teenager. She fights for a group called The Resistance, who aim to rid the world of ‘vamps’. But the undead seem to be [...]

Freedom fighter
What we say – review by Nikki Mason:
Ready for another complex, piratical adventure? Good! Because Freedom Fighter is just as delicious as Lyz Russo’s two previous novels in The Solar Wind Series.
This is the third Solar Wind book I’ve read and I’ve loved each one more and more to the point where now I’m desperate to have questions answered and I’m missing the characters not being part of my life…Oh, alright, I’m missing not being on board a pirate ship in my imagination!

About the reviewer:

Nikki Mason, 

 "A chatty reading nut, amateur actress and hit-and-miss baker is our Nikki. She can't remember a time when she didn't love books and the memory of her six-year-old self being read The Hobbit by her dad will always have a special place in her heart. Give Nikki a gothic Victorian novel or ask her to quote anything by the Bront√ęs and she'll be in heaven. What does she love about being a book reviewer . . . "Getting to read things you wouldn't choose otherwise. I also love reading while I'm having my breakfast and knowing that however badly the rest of the day goes, at least it started productively and with something I love doing! It's my dream job!”
