Hello and Welcome!

Red House Books is going through a bit of a update!

I've always had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted this space to be but I've been detoured from my path by...lots and lost of other people's opinions and ways of doing things...

I'm committed to this little chunk of the interweb but I've also branched out into other places so! Now it's time to think of Red House Books as more of a hub of all things me! And Me is a hell of a lot of book love!

Stay tuned!

In My Mailbox - October 2, 2010 + GIVEAWAY!

In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren :)

Kind of a long post here but it's worth it at the end so please read through!

Awesome week for me guys!! I finally bought myself a birthday present (my birthday was in August).
Here it is!
Isn't it pretty? Isn't it wonderful? Gotta say - it's pretty much NetGalley's fault that I finally broke down and bought myself an e-reader. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to sit and relax and have so many great galleys right in my happy little hands! I'll probably do a little mini review of my wonderful Nook in a few weeks.

Also - some surprise packages!
Surprise package number 1!
Mystery book with secret hidden messages from Nightshade's Shay. Have you been following along? Check out his Facebook page. Tons of clues!
My first one says "Alistair dies in 1666 Great Fire in London"
The second one I'm having a little trouble with it's either "CAMERONI604 1865" or "CAMERONI604 5618" or some other combo...still not sure what it means.

Surprise package number 2!
I already new the folks at Brilliance Audio were wonderful but this just blew my mind:
4 more lovely audio books from Candlewick!
On the Blue Comet by Rosemary Wells

Keep reading! Surprise package number 3 is what you want!

For Review from 1 ARC Tours:
The Absolute Value of -1 by Steve Brezenoff

E-Books for Review from NetGalley (via the wonderful publishers!)
Rage (Horsemen of the Apocalypse #2) by Jackie Morse Kessler
Always A Witch by Carolyn MacCullough (cover may not be final!)
