SEEN This Week 10/8/12

This week’s book, author, and event news:

Lovin’ the Skin You’re In author Andrea Amador was so moved by news anchor Jennifer Livingston’s response to the viewer who called her “a bad role model” for being plus size that she decided it was time to make it known that curvy girls are so much more than a number on a scale and no one can determine value based on weight anymore. She plans to stake her claim and make her voice heard in the media. First stop: The Today Show.

Come read the prologue and first chapter of Evil Unleashed by Valerie Bowen – a psychotic killer has never been so bad.

A Murder of Crows by Edward Medina received its fifteenth five-star review on Amazon from fellow author Jemima Pett: “It’s a rollicking, clever tale of betrayal and jealousy, in a society inhabited by animals that have developed their talents in very special ways since the Great Evolution. It gets more bizarre as the story unfolds, but there’s nothing wrong with that! I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m looking forward to the next in the series of the X Pirates!”
