Finished off I Shall Wear Midnight & liked it very much. I suppose there's going to be more in Tiffany's future, especially after Preston
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
. How long does it take for the author to churn out a book?

Ah, well, Sir Terry Pratchett has Alzheimer's, so his estimated dates for books keep getting pushed back.  The release date for the next book is "2011".  The way the Discworld series is set up, he rotates through a cast of characters.  His next Discworld book is about Sam Vimes, and the one presumed to be after that is about Moist Von Lipwig.  His website says this is the final book and there are no plans for another Tiffany Aching book.

Doesn't that just figure :#) I find a book/series I like only to find out the author can't write much any more, due to illness :( That really is too bad about him having Alzheimer's.

The good news is, he's got an amazing backlist.  I think upwards of 40 books. :) And he hasn't stopped writing, just slowed down, so we'll still see a few more.

Terry Pratchett is an amazing author. You definitely have a lot of brilliant backlist books to catch up on, kikucat!

A Hellion in Her Bed by Sabrina Jeffries.



bibliophile: Are the Cin Craven books worth reading? I liked the short story but I haven't gotten the actual novels yet...

I finished Blood Trinity & enjoyed the hell outta it ;D It is nothing like the Were/Dream/Dark Hunter series. I think having Dianna Love co-author helped make it different from Sherrilyn's usual fare.
Now I'm deciding whether to read Ghost Of A Chance by Simon Green or Death Most Definite by Trent Jamieson. Who knows...maybe I'll pick up something entirely different to read ;)

I just finished Ghost Of A Chance by Simon R. Green. It was okay...nothing that I would re-read though. The story just plodded along & the characters weren't all that interesting. Quite a few years ago I read a book by him titled Once In A Blue Moon & it was very funny, the characters were engaging & I would have had no problem recommending it. I can't say the same for Ghost Of A chance.
I've opened Death Most Definite by Trent Jamieson. Hopefully I'll be happier with this book :)

I liked them, they're set in the 19th century till the current day, and it looks to be an ongoing series.
