I am home from the memorial, and I am exhausted. Plus my link file is (still) exploding. So here: have a review roundup, and I'll try to produce some actual content for you soon.

This YouTube video gives five reasons to read the Newsflesh trilogy, and it's brilliant. I salute the guy who made it, even as I quail in fear at what he's willing to do to himself.

The Quiet Voice has posted a review of Blackout, and says, "Mira Grant does not lose any steam in this final installment of the Newsflesh trilogy. She continues the story seamlessly from the chilling ending of Deadline, and grabs readers all the way to the gripping finale." Woo!

RA for All has posted a review of Blackout, and says, "Blackout, as the conclusion of this well plotted and entertaining trilogy, did not disappoint." Works for me.

The handsome, debonair, and all-around sexy gentleman in charge of Schlock Mercenary, Howard Tayler, has posted a review of Blackout, and says, "Mira Grant sticks the landing." That is, as a writer, all I ever wanted. I just wanted to stick the landing.

Mini Love Notes has posted a review of Blackout, and says, "Here marks the end to hands-down one of the best series I’ve read since The Hunger Games trilogy." Oh, very nice.

And now for something completely different: Great Books for Horse Lovers has posted a review of Rosemary and Rue, and says, "Half riotously funny, half darkly suspenseful, Rosemary and Rue will beguile and enchant older teen and adult fans of Celtic myth and urban mysteries. With at least six more books in print and to come in the October Daye series, hopefully, more kelpies will follow for horse-lovers, too!" Hee!

I dunno if you saw my Tweet the other day, but anyway...
There I was, driving home from Shepherdstown, WV. We're essentially talking middle of nowhere up near the Maryland and Virginia borders. I'm in the parking lot of a Rita's Water Ice, about to hop onto I-81 for the 4 hour drive home.
I look to my right, and the dude sitting in the car parked next to me is reading Blackout.
I start to pull out, double-take, pull back in, roll down my window and give him the thumbs-up. We exchange a few words about how awesome the series is, before I leave for real.
Awesomely random encounter. :)

Just finished reading the book and I loved it. There should be a term for that sad feeling you get when you're coming to the end of a book you're really enjoying, and I'll be recommending it heartily to our school librarian. Thanks fot this and I'm off to start reading some of your others :)

Oh, and also, without wanting to be rude, dudes, this trilogy is so much better than the Harry Potters & Hunger Games!

I have to admit I owe you a review of Blackout... and soon will of Countdown too (Orbit Shorts are available, at long last, in the UK, and through a number of ebook sources. This is awesome, awesome news)

The video review--ha, ha. Not your everyday review. But! Is it just because he's in the UK that he said MY-ra or have I been pronouncing it wrong? (more like MEERah)

You've got it right - or else one of Seanan's carefully picked Machete squad has been getting it wrong within arm's reach of Seanan.

It's MEE-ra. He was wrong. But I shan't be correcting him. :)

My mini review of Blackout is that I am amused my favorite romantic relationship from a book recently is between a pair of spoilers in a zombie novel.

Hmm, now I'm wondering what horse lovers will make of the mounts in Blind Michael's Ride.
