Cover Reveal!

Coming Soon - the anticipated sequel to Michael Pierce's PROVEX City.

SUSY Asylum
The Lorne Family Vault, Book 2
by Michael Pierce

In SUSY Asylum, there is no release. There is no escape. No hope. In SUSY Asylum, the patients come face-to-face with their mirrors, locked away with the other halves of themselves who are thirsty for more than blood. Or so says Commodore Chaos.

Oliver and Desiree are introduced to the writings of the mysterious blogger, Commodore Chaos, when they return to Provex City to indulge in what the sublime city has to offer. The blogger claims the Lornes are collecting people venturing between the higher planes of awareness and locking them away in their mythical asylum. But are these legitimate concerns for inter-plane travelers or just the ramblings of an anonymous conspiracy blogger?

Oliver looks to the city as his only connection to his father while Desiree looks to the city as an escape from the torment of losing her best friend—again. Provex City is a wonder of beautiful treasures, entrancing them to continue returning. But behind the beauty, wolves have continued hunting Oliver, a boy who is still mostly unaware of his importance in the rebellion.

Oliver’s belief is waning. Desiree will not always be by his side. Mr. Gordon will not always come to his aid. Oliver finds himself alone, forced to confront his biggest fears, fight his inner demons, and face the very cold reality that no one is coming to save him.

Welcome to SUSY Asylum.

Ever wondered how a five-year-old girl perceives the world? Then you definitely need to get your hands on THE BOOK, a novella by Jessica Bell.

"Jessica Bell’s surprising risks with language capture a child’s clear vision in a world of adult heartbreak. Indelible. Courageous." ~Thaisa Frank, author of Heidegger's Glasses and Enchantment

This book is not The Book. The Book is in this book. And The Book in this book is both the goodie and the baddie.

Bonnie is five. She wants to bury The Book because it is a demon that should go to hell. Penny, Bonnie’s mother, does bury The Book, but every day she digs it up and writes in it. John, Bonnie’s father, doesn’t live with them anymore. But he still likes to write in it from time to time. Ted, Bonnie’s stepfather, would like to write in The Book, but Penny won’t allow it.

To Bonnie, The Book is sadness.
To Penny, The Book is liberation.
To John, The Book is forgiveness.
To Ted, The Book is envy.
But The Book in this book isn’t what it seems at all.

If there was one thing in this world you wished you could hold in your hand, what would it be? The world bets it would be The Book.

Available at all major retailers in e-book and paperback, including Amazon US and Amazon UK.

The Wednesday Movie Quote

Every Wednesday will be Movie Quote Day for a certain genre. You can post on your own blog or just leave your favorite quote here.

Today it’s futuristic science fiction.

My favorite:

From Blade Runner – “I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in rain... Time to die.”

What’s your favorite? Next week – light fantasy.

Excited about Michael's new book? How about Jessica's? Did you get the trivia right? (A couple of you got all of the answers!) And what is your favorite science fiction movie quote?

You came up with a great caption, and I love that Blade Runner quote!

I love that Blade Runner quote. IN an interview, Rutger Hauer says he wrote that himself.

Yvonne's World of Poetry said...

Great post Alex, loved the dog with Mr. Spock.
Have a great day,
Yvonne.

Donna Hole said...

I can't just pull movie quotes off the top of my head. I'm forwarned now, I'll be better at this next week :)

Yeah, I'm excited about these books.

......dhole

Annalisa Crawford said...

The Book and SUSY Asylum both look like great reads!

Francis Lee said...

"*They* cut the power"? How could they cut the power, man?......Aliens but the Blade Runner one is my favourite!

Melissa J H. said...

Serenity Quote - Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Come a day there won't be room for naughty men like us to slip about at all. This job goes south, there well may not be another. So here is us, on the raggedy edge. Don't push me, and I won't push you. Dong le ma?

Kyra Lennon said...

I can't wait to read "The Book," and I am excited for Michael Pierce's new book, too!

C.M.Brown said...

I always did like Blade Runner!

I am looking forward to Micheal's sequel, I am sure it will be a good read!

Jessica Bell said...

Thank you so much for featuring me today, Alex!

What a lovely thing Misha is doing. Just had a squiz at the post and she has selected some great blogger. WOnderful prizes too! :-)

Congrats to Michael!

Sheena-kay Graham said...

Suzy Asylum actually sounds nuts. That's saying something. Congrats on your caption being Chosen Alex and the nomination too. My movie quote comes from The Fantastic Mr. Fox. I just love how she says this!

Mrs. Fox: If what I think is happening is happening - it better not be.

Imogen Elvis said...

The Book has me intruiged. No quote from me this week. Too late in my day to think of one. And awesome caption! No wonder it got chosen.

Mark Koopmans said...

Just voted too - and thanks for highlighting yet another great post and several wonderful books.

I still don't know how you do it :)

michelle said...

The Book sounds intriguing!
When last have I seen a picture of Mr. Spock?

Writer Pat Newcombe said...

"The Book" sounds captivating. A very difficult thing to do - to look into a five year old's head, methinks...

Patsy said...

Love your picture quote, Alex!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Sean, didn't know that.

Fran, game over, man! Yeah, knew you'd appreciate the Blade Runner quote.

Melissa, excellent one!

Jessica, you're welcome.

Sheena-kay, I think it happened...

Mark, I keep the clones happy.

Thanks, everyone!!!

Gossip_Grl said...

Congrats to Michael and Jessica on their new books! I don't always know the answers to the trivia questions, but love coming back to read the answers! Heading over to Misha's blog. Happy Wednesday!

Terri Rochenski said...

'The Book' sounds amazing. Definitely going to check it out.

I didn't know a single alien line. *hides face in shame*

As a true fantasy fan, I'll think on next week's quote.

Creepy Query Girl said...

Jessica's new book sounds so mysterious! Congrats to both she and Michael and awesome cover art from vic!

Natalie Aguirre said...

You should win the most encouraging blogger award. That's so what you are.

Love Michael's new cover. He's at my blog today for an interview as part of his blog tour.

Brinda said...

Okay, that burying the book and digging it up everyday is keraazzzy. :) The Book sounds like a great book.

Elizabeth Spann Craig/Riley Adams said...

Great caption, Alex!

Nice concept for "The Book!"

Em-Musing said...

Jessica is so talented. The Book sounds fascinating. Going to check it out.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

The Cocoon quote is my favorite. Just reading about those books leaves me in awe of Michael's and Jessica's brainpowers.

PS Thanks for your comment on my blog, Alex. It helped me realize I need to clarify that the words in red are song lyrics from Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing.

Off to Misha's blog.

Rusty Webb said...

Great looking books. And no - I haven't picked them up yet. I'm so far behind.

Christine Rains said...

Awesome caption and fabulous looking books. Reading the blurb for The Book has me intrigued.

Karen Walker said...

Just ordered Jessica's for my Kindle. Love love love her writing.
Karen

Nick Wilford said...

I still need to read Provex City. So many books and not enough time! Seems like a very well-developed world that Michael's created. And The Book sounds intriguing, to say the least.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Love the caption! Also, gotta love "Bladerunner". I read somewhere that they are considering a remake (it's in the early stages of the process right now). I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I think remakes can be wonderful if they're well done.

vic caswell (aspiring-x) said...

special effects budget!
*snarf!*
thanks for sharing michael's cover! and whoohoo miss jessica! :D

Donna K. Weaver said...

That caption is hilarious. Of course, they were cutting edge for their day.

"Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid." ~Han Solo

Laura Eno said...

Great caption and of course you're the most encouraging blogger! Was there any doubt?

Al Diaz said...

I am a shame when it comes to movie trivia but your caption made me laugh. Congratulations on the nominations and best luck for the new books!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Natalie!

Robyn, they fit well though.

Optimistic, some things should never be remade.

Vic, you're welcome.

Good one, Donna.

Thanks, Laura.

Melissa said...

Both Susy Asylum and The Book sound interesting. Congrats to both!

L.G. Smith said...

Ha! Love the Spock caption. And congrats on the nomination over at Misha's. I also love the idea of writers paying it forward.

mooderino said...

Nice caption. Suitable for every episode of Dr Who ever.

Juliana Haygert said...

Great caption! And great quote from Blade Runner!

Clarissa Draper said...

Love your caption!

Also, I'm excited about Jessica's new book. Hope it does well.

Sangu Mandanna said...

Michael and Jessica's books sound so cool!

Liesel K Hill said...

Congrats on getting chosen for the Geek Twins contest. Yours was definitely hilarious. Both Suzy Asylum and The Book look really interesting. Thanks for sharing them! :D

Teresa Coltrin said...

Great quote, btw.

The new books look very yummy.

Congratulations on being nominated. You deserve to win.

Tonja said...

That's a lot of comments for 9 am. I love the unicorn puppy! I saw 4/5 of the movies and failed at all the trivia.

Michael Pierce said...

Thanks for posting my new cover! Jessica's book sounds really cool. I should have gotten the first trivia question. The new movie quotes segment is a great idea.

Cherie Reich said...

Michael's cover is awesome! And congrats to Jessica!

That's a neat idea about the movie quotes. :)

kmckendry said...

Jessica's and Michael's books look great!

Love your caption. We have been showing those old Star Treks to the kids and I can't believe how far special effects have come. As a kid those phasers were so cool.

Liz Fichera said...

Such great books coming out and I'm especially intrigued by Jessica's.

Oh, that Predator quote! That movie still gives me chills. Love it.

ilima said...

LOVED your caption, haha. Congrats!

I'm gonna cheat and use a quote from BSG, not a movie. My fav is from Baltar, "No more Mr. Nice Gaius!"

Kittie Howard said...

Michael's cover really pulls the eye in. Jessica is an amazing talent. Can't decide if my fav quote is "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn" or "I shall never be hungry again." Yep, GWTW!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Whew, I have a lot of visits to make.
Favorite quote:
Will Smith in Independence Day. "Welcome to Earth!"

Nicki Elson said...

Both books sound REALLY intriguing. Curse you! Haven't you seen the size of my reading list. Just gets longer...

Andrew Leon said...

Futuristic sci-fi? I'm coming up blanks, at the moment. In the meantime, I will just have to go with "Do or do not. There is not try."
I'm pretty sure that is my most quoted quote.
It's probably followed by "I have a bad feeling about this."

I'll try to remember to throw up a quote next Wednesday, but you should post the theme ahead of time so we can prepare.

Charles Gramlich said...

Love the caption for that Star Trek image.

Joshua said...

Man...I'm really sad I missed that round of trivia questions.

Julie Flanders said...

Wow, Jessica's book sounds so powerful! Have to check that one out. And I'm so excited for Michael, the SUSY cover is awesome!

M.J. Fifield said...

I missed the trivia but I wouldn't have gotten any of them anyway.

Love the caption for the Star Trek pic.

Clare said...

Congratulations on the nomination, Alex. Very deserving!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

THE BOOK does sound ominous and intriguing. Stephen King move over. Loved the SciFi movie quotes -- especially the one from COCOON. :-)

Julie Luek said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Julie Luek said...

Try again.. Ditto on what others have said here-- congratulations on your nomination, absolutely well deserved.

Rachel Schieffelbein said...

Very nicely done with the caption. :)
Both of these books sound really interesting. Thanks for sharing!

Julie Dao said...

I love the premise of THE BOOK. It sounds so intriguing and that cover just pulls you in, doesn't it?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Jody, that's funny.

Thank you, Teresa.

Michael, you're welcome.

Kathy, now they're lame...

Ilima, that works.

Nicki, men as well.

Andrew, I did -!light fantasy.

Roland, women are sexier with skin.

Mina Burrows said...

Congrats to Michael! I'm heading over to Misha's now. Thx.

Susan Oloier said...

Oooh, I like the cover of Michael's book! I'm off to see Misha now.

Carole Anne Carr said...

As always some great information, you have provided me with titles of books I am interested in, and blogs well worth discovering.

Michael Offutt, Speculative Fiction Author said...

Your caption is hilarious. Alex, you should enter the New Yorker's "caption" contest. Dude if you won, that would be awesome.

Scribbles From Jenn said...

Congratulations on your award. You ARE very encouraging.

The Book sounds creepy. I might have to read it.

My favorite alien quote is the Klingon exhortation: "Today is a good day to die"

After you told the answers, I remembered the lines in numbers 4 &5.

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Alex .. I love the look of Jess' book "The Book" .. and then your award .. I'm on my way over to Mischa's blog now ..

Cheers - Hilary

Joylene Nowell Butler said...

Blade Runner is in my top 10 all time favourite films. I love the scene where she says she has memories of a mother she doesn't know are real or someone else's.

Melanie Schulz said...

THE BOOK; that title just draws you in, doesn't it?

Empty Nest Insider said...

Congrats to all of the authors, and on your nomination Alex!
The Cocoon quote is my favorite. Julie

farawayeyes said...

Suzy Asylum looks awesome.

randi lee said...

Oh those new books look exciting! Thanks for sharing. And I only knew 5th element and Galaxy Quest but I've seen the others. Thought my memory's better than that!

M Pax said...

Great caption for the photo. lol

Congrats to Michael and Jessica!

SA Larsenッ said...

Hopping over to Misha's site!!!

And I love Jess's new book!!

Johanna Garth said...

Congratulations on winning the caption contest.

I saw a post about Jessica's new book this morning and it sounds fascinating. Haven't seen anything about Michael's (until now) but will check it out.

Nicole said...

Congrats to Michael and Jessica!

I got the trivia right...at least the two I tried for. ;)

Donna Hosie said...

I love Galaxy Quest. I watched it just the other day in fact.

Elsie The Writer said...

I just checked out The Book over on Amazon - it's next on my list of must reads. What a great story!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Michael, I'll look into it.

Jenn, that is a good one. And haven't won yet, just nominated.

Randi, I was trying to pick easy ones.

Thanks, everyone!!

Deniz Bevan said...

I missed making my blogging rounds!
Congratulations to Jessica!
And I'm off to visit Misha...
Thanks for the Google tip in the previous post, too, Alex - very helpful.

Suze said...

Oh, gosh, Al. Favorite futuristic Sci-Fi quote, hmm.

'From this day on, let every breed of Mongo live together, in peace.'

Prince Barin, Flash Gordon, 1980.

:)

Hart Johnson said...

They both look like great books! I'm especially excited to get to Jessica's--looks spookier than her other ones. Also love that Star Trek pic!

Patricia Stoltey said...


I did not get any of the trivia right although I did think the one from Cocoon sounded familiar -- I saw The Thing back in the 50s but sort of against my will. My dad took us to the drive-in and my brother and I were supposed to sleep through the second feature. I didn't, but have always wished I did. That may be the reason I still have nightmares.

Isis Rushdan said...

Congratulations to all the authors will books coming out!

That is my favorite quote from Blade Runner!

Carol Kilgore said...

Congrats to Michael and Jessica! Now I'm off to Misha's!

VikLit said...

You came up with a great caption!!!

mauricem1972 said...

Congrats on the Encouraging Blogger award! Huzzah to Michael Pierce and Jessica Bell! You're welcome Alex, you're good at captions. I got three out of five right!

Ella said...

Wow, Michael reminds me to beware of mirrors. I think I need both books ;D
Congrats to all! Jessica-that is one hell of a book~
Off to visit Misha~

Happy Wednesday Captain :D

I love Blade Runner!

Gwen Gardner said...

LOL, Captain This by the Geek Twins was priceless!

LD Masterson said...

Love the Spock caption. The Book sounds - staying with a Spock moment - fascinating.

Robin said...

My dad was a HUGE Star Trek fan. I think he would have loved that.

I really like how you promote the blogs, the books, and so on. I think you make everyone you feature feel very special. That's a gift.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Deniz, glad the tip helped!

Suze, few would know that one! (I remember though.)

Patricia, if you watched it now you would laugh.

Gwen, glad I could amuse you!

Robin, thank you!!

Arlee Bird said...

Congratulations on the nomination for most helpful blogger-- you deserve the title.

Elizabeth Seckman said...

Love that caption!! Makes me wish my dad was alive so I could frame it and score brownie points. Thanks for the laugh and the warm memory!

Jennifer Lane said...

Ba ha ha! Love your caption--no wonder it was a big winner. :-)

Laura said...

I'm fascinated by The Book.
Great caption

J. A. Bennett said...

Elizabeth posted your caption thing on facebook. I laughed so hard. That was awesome Alex!

Yvonne's World of Poetry said...

Alex, not being too well this morning I did not see about the nomination for the most helpful blogger.
Congrats Alex I above many have received your help over the period of time we have known each other. It is much appreciated and good luck with the nomination.
Yvonne.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Loved your caption! Michael and Jessica's books both look good, and I love the quote fest idea. I think I can do next week . . .hoping to either have a new laptop by then, or at least access to something better than a brick in a basement.
My favorite quote from a sci fi movie - man that's a hard choice . . .maybe "Mos Eisley, a wretched hive of scum and villainy." or "May the Force be with you." I'm on Star Wars New Hope trend these past few days. I'll have to torture, wait no, treat my kids to another viewing of it.

Elise Fallson said...

Excited for both writers today! And LOL, your caption was perfect.

Nickie said...

I'm going to go old school with the science fiction quote and pull out some 'Brave New World':

"I'm claiming the right to be unhappy."

I love the realization that part of freedom, true freedom, is the right to be miserable.

The blurb for 'The Book' has me very curious. What is the book? I have to know!!

Jo said...

Only quote I recognised was the one from Cocoon. Knew the character, can't remember the names. Not good with movies

I read dozens of books but don't really remember any good quotes, ah well.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Lee!

Elizabeth, sorry and you are most welcome.

JA, really???

Thank you Yvonne and hope you feel better.

Tyrean, go ahead and torture them!!

Nickie, that's funny.

Belle said...

Loved your caption and The Book sounds like exciting reading. My favorite quote is, "The good of the many outweigh the good of the few, or the one."

Lynda R Young said...

Awesome quote. The book is nothing like the movie. And I'd agree you are encouraging :)

Jemi Fraser said...

Love the Spock caption!
It's been years and years since I've seen Bladerunner - I barely remember it. I'll have to watch it soon :)

DMS said...

Yeah! Congrats on the nomination. It is always nice to hear good news. :) I am very fascinated and curious about The Book. What a description! Thanks for sharing!

Shannon Lawrence said...

Both books sound amazing! Jessica's gave me mental chills.

mshatch said...

I loved your caption! Too perfect. And that's an awesome quote from an awesome movie. This is one I like:

"Yeah, Bishop should go."

tfwalsh said...

Ohh some cool new books for me to check out... really like the sound of The Book.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Belle, excellent!!!

Lynda, thank you.

Jemi, you should.

Mshatch, good one.

Nancy Thompson said...

Ugh, I'm late. Again. Can't keep track of my days anymore. I'm always one off. Thank goodness your around to help keep me on track, Alex. I'd lose track of everything & everyone. Congrats, Michael & Jessica! Both sound interesting! And as far as movie quotes go, the only flick I can ever quote is Scarface. And THAT wouldn't be at all appropriate.

Melissa said...

Congrats on the nomination! Well-deserved! I can't believe I didn't recognize the quote from The Thing. That was an awesome movie.

Chuck said...

My favorite quote is one of the Star Trek movies(which one I am not sure at the moment, maybe II). "The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few...or the one". Spock to Kirk.

Leigh Covington said...

Congrats on the nomination Alex! Doesn't surprise me a bit to see you on that list! That's a pretty neat thing she has going on over there ")

Morgan said...

You are too funny, Ninja man. I love it.

And Michael P. is AWESOME. Very stoked for him. :D

Melissa Bradley said...

Awesome news all around. Congrats to everyone!

You know I got to go with Serenity and Capt. Mal "You can learn all the math in the 'Verse, but you take a boat in the air you don't love and she'll shake you off sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down, tells you she's hurtin' 'fore she keens. Makes her a home."

Jack said...

LOVE the picture of Spock, and I rather agree with him. Though half the fun of the snow was their props or lack thereof.

The Book actually sounds like something I'd read. It caught my interest.

Predator. I knew I should have known that one. I've seen it enough, thanks to my dad.

Carrie-Anne said...

Congratulations to Michael and Jessica!

I can't believe I actually guessed #5 correctly. I thought it was just a reference to Cocoon, not the actual movie itself.

Carole Anne Carr said...

Thank you for your interest, Alex. You are quite welcome to be included in those who have requested access to the book blogging book, but should think you are extremely busy. The book should be published this year. Now that I have deliberately committed myself to doing this, I shall have to work hard in order to post all chapters in good time. I have another children's book to be completed and published in the spring. If I don't hurry, my readers, who are waiting for this sequel, will already be grandmothers!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I'll keep you on track, Nancy.

Chuck, that would be Star Trek II: The Wraith of Khan!

Melissa, can't go wrong with Serenity.

Carrie-Anne, it was a real line in the movie.

Carole, you are committed now!

Matthew MacNish said...

That's a great Bladerunner quote.

Leovi said...

Yes, very interesting The Book of Jessica Bell.

Shell Flower said...

Hahaha. Your quote is perfect. The Book looks really intriguing. I love an interesting perspective. Blade Runner is such a cool movie, too. Thanks for the food for thought!

Sarah Ahiers said...

I watched Thing again the other day. I love that movie so much. And it stands the test of time. It's still gross and terrifying now as it was back in the 80s

Rachna Chhabria said...

Why doesn't it come as a surprise to me that someone nominated you for the Most Encouraging Blogger. You deserve to win, Alex.

Both Michael and Jessica's books sound lovely.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Shell!

Sarah, I watched the 'prequel' and the effects really weren't any better.

Thank you, Rachna!

Sherry Ellis said...

Jessica's new book sounds really good. I'll have to check it out.

Camille Picott said...

Hmmm . . . favorite sci-fi movie quote. I'm going to go with "Hasta la vista, Baby," from Terminator. :)

Shaharizan Perez said...

Very intriguing glimpse of Jessica Bell's The Book. It's on my wishlist for books to read. Thanks Alex.

Rick said...

Alex, I really love "Movie Quote Day!"

Rebecca Green Gasper said...

Congrats to Michael and Jessica. Their books look great! I'm off to visit Misha Gericke.

Robin said...

You are welcome on your HERE'S TO YOU dedication. Did you understand why I chose the one I did for Liza? I would have commented directly on your comment, but I want to see if SHE gets it. Hint: it related back to her post about The Tides that she wrote approx. a week ago.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Camille, that's a good one.

Rick, join us next week!

Robin, I remember.

The Happy Whisk said...

Good wishes to the authors and I love, love, love Galaxy Quest.

One of the best movies, ever.

cleemckenzie said...

Where can I get a Spock Dog?

alexia said...

Lots of fun stuff going on as usual! Thanks for the updates :) I love The Fifth Element, btw.

Laura Pauling said...

I am horrible at that kind of trivia - or any kind for that matter. I don't have that kind of memory. I think Jessica's book sounds terrific.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Whisk, it is!

Lee, a trip to the pound and Walmart should do it.

Laura, it just sticks in my brain.

Helena said...

What a perfect caption, Alex!

The Book sounds amazing and original, and I was intrigued by the blurb for the Susy Asylum. I'll keep an eye out for them.

Pat Tillett said...

The Book...
I don't see how I can't read that book. After reading about it just now, I have no idea what it's about, but it intrigued me A LOT...

Medeia Sharif said...

Yes, I'm excited about Michael and Jessica's books.

No, I didn't get the trivia right.

Ciara said...

No surprise on the nomination. Wow, such great covers!!!

Nigel Mitchell said...

Glad you liked the unicorn dog pic. I thought it was the perfect caption

Heather Gardner said...

Where did the week go? I'm just catching up with you now!

I like the movie quote idea. I wonder if I could pull that off each week.

Favorite Science Fiction movie quote? That is sooooo tough...but I do love...

"Game over man! Game over!" from Aliens. :)

E.J. Wesley said...

Michael's book sounds so intense. I'm going to have to move it up my tbr.

Misha has a lot of talented bloggers up for awards, so it should be a good race. :-)
