Book Promo and Contest

So we had great plans for a contest last month around Valentines and then life got in the way and it just didn’t happen the way we expected.  Sooo…we’ve decided to try again.  :)   From now until midnight on St. Patrick’s day, March 17th, all commenters will be tossed into a bucket for a book shaped prize.  As I’m headed off to Disney World next week there is every possibility something Disney shaped may go with the book.  So chat it up.

As well we’re moving webpages.  Hopefully this will be the last time.  We’ve decided that wordpress is a much better blog software for us and we’re actually at our own website, www.realitybypassbooks.com instead of something with a weird .8m or whatnot in the middle.  The move will happen April 2nd though the old page will stay up for archives for a while.

Soo…moving on to our book of the week, Magic Burns by Ilona Andrews.  This is book two in the Kate Daniels series.  Book three Magic Strikes comes out at the end of the month!!!  This series is a lot of fun and a good launch to our week of talking about many things Irish.  I love the use of Celtic mythology in Magic Burns.  It adds a lot of richness to the book and is used in ways which are uncommon in most Urban Fantasy.  Of the Kate books thus far this is the one I’ve come back to read multiple times.  The use of the crow symbology is strong and a very classic Welsh and Irish usage.  Definitely a solid UF contender, and I have the same high hopes for Magic Strikes!
