I recently made a semi-serious promise to myself that I will read nothing but non-fiction for the next one month.
Semi-serious only because I didn’t believe I was actually going to do it.
Do you know how addicts crave their drugs till they can think of almost nothing else? Reading popular fiction has become a similar sort of addiction for me.
I can seriously think of nothing else when the craving for one of those books start. My cravings are genre-specific too. Sometimes I need a Regency romance a la G. Heyer; sometimes it’s YA, particularly of the high school romance variety; often I really need to read an action packed Urban Fantasy [think: Dresden Files, Kate Daniels] – (never paranormal romance, thank you, I’ve learnt my lesson – there are no high standards in that world); and then there is the odd craving for the quirky contemporary romances and mysteries; also sometimes I notice a really awesome looking cover – most probably in High Fantasy – and run towards it heedlessly.

This brand new Kate Daniels novella has been posted for free on Ilona Andrew’s blog (click me!!). It’s available in various ebook formats and will remain free for a limited period of two weeks starting from yesterday!
We know a little of this story – us fans – and it’s set right in the aftermath of Magic Slays. Kate and Curran go out for a dinner – a normal date night sort of thing – and end up fighting unchained vampires that get out of control after one of their necromancers get strangled by a necklace.
This story runs parallel to Gunmental Magic which is Andrea’s story and comes out next in late 2012.
So, here’s Magic Gifts for you. Click on the link to their blog (that’s me, click me!) and enjoy the last week of the year with Kate, Curran and some very evil plotting. 🙂
