The Buzz: Author Friends & The Host Teaser Trailer

YAY! I'm so excited to start posting The Buzz again! I've missed my Monday posts. They're always my favorite. Okay, so today I wanted to feature three books written by some of my author friends. Their books have been all over the internet lately, so I'm sure you've already heard of them, but if you haven't, then I'm glad you stopped by!

The first is CassaFire (Sequel to CassaStar) by Alex J. Cavanaugh. Alex just took his book on tour all over the blogosphere. It was a very awesome and successful blog tour that I'm sure you all participated in or read about.

Here's a little more about the book...

CassaStar was only the beginning… 

The Vindicarn War is a distant memory and Byron’s days of piloting Cosbolt fighters are over. He has kept the promise he made to his fallen mentor and friend - to probe space on an exploration vessel. Shuttle work is dull, but it’s a free and solitary existence. The senior officer is content with his life aboard the Rennather.

The detection of alien ruins sends the exploration ship to the distant planet of Tgren. If their scientists can decipher the language, they can unlock the secrets of this device. Is it a key to the Tgren's civilization or a weapon of unimaginable power? Tensions mount as their new allies are suspicious of the Cassan's technology and strange mental abilities.

To complicate matters, the Tgrens are showing signs of mental powers themselves, the strongest of which belongs to a pilot named Athee, a woman whose skills rival Byron’s unique abilities. Forced to train her mind and further develop her flying aptitude, he finds his patience strained. Add a reluctant friendship with a young scientist, and he feels invaded on every level. All Byron wanted was his privacy…

Second is Midnight at Moonglow's by K.C. Sherwood. If you haven't heard of this book you should definitely check it out. I know "K" personally, and she is such a sweetie. Her book recently won honorable mention at the LA Book Fest. YAY "K"!!

Life has always been a little lonely for twelve-year-old Casey Parker, an obsessive reader who makes up for her lack of friends with her books. The only attention she gets in school is unwanted, given a bit too enthusiastically by the school bully. But, when Casey 's great uncle Walter moves back to town and takes over a mysterious little bookshop called Moonglow s, things begin to get interesting.
He gives her an old iron key and tells her to come back to read at night when the moonlight is shining in, because something truly magical happens. But there are three rules she must follow: the books must remain in the shop at night, she must keep the key with her at all times, and, above all, she must be out by midnight.
She discovers that she can physically enter the story of any book she reads. But, if she 's not out by midnight, or if she forgets her key, she will be trapped inside the book forever. Casey spends the summer between grammar school and junior high leaping into different stories and learning about herself in the process. As the first day of junior high approaches, Casey knows she will have to face the bully again; disappearing into her favorite novel forever is beginning to sound like a great idea.

Last but not least is Visions (The Holly Nather Trilogy, #1) by Sara Daniell. The Holly Nather Trilogy Blog Tour is going on right now, so make sure you stop by Sara's blog to take part in all the fun :)

"Every guy I seem to date ends up resembling the reeking material that janitors and plumbers both deal with on a daily basis. You get my metaphor. In summary, it is safe to say that my dating life really, really sucks." -- Holly

It is Holly's first year in college and the most exciting thing in her life is her classes. She doesn't have any luck with dating and doesn't have many friends.

Her life is terribly boring until she receives a text message from a unknown person. Life as Holly knows it will forever change by responding to that one single text. She isn't too thrilled but will soon find herself falling in love with a complete stranger from another world.

  3. Hope your book launch is going well! I really enjoyed The Host despite a lot of people telling me it didn't meet their expectations after Twilight, but I'm a sci-fi girl so it was a great read for me :)
