Under a Brass Moon Stuffies!



I love bookish memorabilia.  LOVE it!

In July, Curiosity Quills Press published this great steam-punk anthology.  Now, you can order some great memorabilia to go along with it!  Have I mentioned that I love this kind of stuff?

You can get a poster, mug, or various types of clothing.  It's only available for another 24 days, so hurry over and take a look!  Prices?  Surprisingly low, but I'm not sure about shipping costs.

Free copy of Bad Date



Right now, if you go to A Pius Geek and sign up to receive their newsletter, they'll email you a free copy of Bad Date.

Keep in mind, you can always get the free book and then unsubscribe.  You won't want to, though, because Declan Finn is pretty darn entertaining.

Life is But a Nightmare cover reveal



Erin Hayes recently revealed the cover for her latest work.  Pre-order price is only 99 cents!  It's scheduled release date is February 28.  This is the second book in the Elysium Legacies.

Description:
Former police detective Callie Saunders shouldn’t be alive, but she’s been thriving with her new lease on life away from the machinations of the ancient Greek gods and goddesses.

But there’s always been someone missing from this little piece of paradise.

When a vengeful god kidnaps her son, she travels back to a world she barely understands to find him. A world where she must face humanity’s greatest enemies and her former lover. If she’s not careful, she’ll lose her soul again. And, maybe, even her heart.

Congratulations to Vera Mae!


In October, Vera Mae produced her first romance book.  If you haven't read it, I suggest you pick it up.  It will melt even the most frozen hearts.  I can personally attest to that.

We, here  at Literary Litter, want to extend our heartfelt happiness and well wishes to Vera Mae on her recent marriage.

May your own life inspire many more romance novels!

If you're into cozy mysteries, you might want to check out this newest series by CC Dragon.  CC is the author of Strawberry Top mysteries and Deanna Oscar paranormal mysteries.

Description:

Gypsies, vamps, and weres…these are just some of the people powerful witch Claudia Crestwood and her friends protect. In the city of Hartford, Connecticut—years before Salem, there were witch trials. Now the paranormal coexist with humans, more or less. With the help of her hippie aunt and cousins, her gypsy uncle, and other paranormal friends, Claudia stands on the line between humans and paras—helping to keep the peace.

When a human customer dies after an incident at the coffee shop, Claudia must dig into the case to protect the cafe and the coven. Threats have been made and what’s worse, she’s harboring a hunter wanted by the police in her basement. A hot and powerful wizard starts showing up in the shop when Claudia needs help and is at her worst. Intriguing and annoying… She isn’t sure she can trust him and his reclusive family but it’s time for her to dig deeper into the magical world.

The e-version is scheduled for release February 21.  Pre-order price is only 99 cents!

The Messiah by Vincent Scarsella



Scarsella's newest book was released January 28.  He's best known for his Lawyers Gone Bad series, but personally I'm a fan of his Psi Academy series.

I'm really interested to see how this book compares with Duncan Whitehead's Reluctant Jesus.  If anyone reads them both, please let us know!

I've been told that for you hard copy readers, it's in the works and should be coming soon.  Right now it's only available on Kindle.

Update:  This has been released in hard copy!  Go here!

Description:

“If you’d come today you could have reached the whole nation, Israel in 4 BC had no mass communication...”

What if a Jesus-like preacher came today? Would his message of peace and love be heard by the masses? Would they reject their beliefs and adopt those he espouses calling them to do and think things that improve the lives of their fellow man, enhance the survival of the human species and bring humanity closer to a comprehension of God? Would they seek to overthrow the ruling elite and establish the Kingdom of God on Earth?
“The Messiah” chronicles the meteoric rise of such a Jesus-like preacher, one Cristos Pantera, a direct descendant of Jesus Christ, whose revolutionary message threatens the Supremacy, the elite of bankers, corporations, priests, and politicians that for centuries has secretly ruled the world. But as Pantera’s fame and influence grows to frightful proportions, the Supremacy decides to do to him what they have done to other messiahs who threatened their rule - crucify him. In a thrilling climax, one wonders if they have succeeded, or will he rise from the dead?

Step one in our changes

At the end of last year, I had wonderful new visions for Literary Litter.  I even began to implement some of them.  Shortly after that, I found out that my vision is failing.  It has been for awhile, but I've been forcing it.  I can still see!  I just can't see to read.  I can force it for a page or two at a time, but that's my limit.  It just seems silly to run a book review company when you can't read.  So I closed.

We've got some great new stuff coming up, and I think it'll be even more useful and entertaining than before.  But I'm getting ahead of myself.

We will no longer be posting any reviews here.  Editing the reviews, writing them, and posting them are just too much for me.  It goes far beyond my reading time limit each day.  Minding Spot has kindly agreed to take over our reviews for us.  All of our review staff will continue to do reviews, but they'll be posted there instead of on Literary Litter.  I'll still be doing reviews, but it will have to go down to a few a year instead of what I was doing.

I sincerely want to thank all of my wonderful friends for being so supportive the last few weeks.  Everyone has had great ideas for how to continue reviewing as well as showing sincere sympathy for what I've been going through.  It's nice to know I'm loved :)

Announcement

It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of Literary Litter.

Due to medical constraints, I can no longer read for any length of time.  It seems a little silly to be a book reviewer who can't read.

I don't know what's coming next for me, but I'm sure it will be a grand adventure.  I believe in miracles and I believe in magic.  I don't remember a time when I wasn't glued to a book.  This is definitely going to be a change for me.

Should things improve in the future, I'll return to doing reviews on Goodreads and Amazon.  I still want to be as supportive as possible to my author friends out there, so please keep me informed when you have something new coming out.  Even though I currently can't read, I still need your books for my library and I'll cherish them just as much.
