Kinetic is Coming! Kinetic is Coming!

Guess what?

If you've read the title of this blog entry, you know exactly what. Or perhaps you only know what I'm telling you, but not what it means. Allow me to enlighten you.

S.K. Anthony has written a novel—a really great one—and it's finally up for grabs, starting tomorrow, September 20. I have been excited about this for a month now, and have hardly been able to stand the wait.

Kinetic (The Luminaries) is Anthony's debut novel, but you'd never know it's her first time out. A self-proclaimed "official make-stuff-up-er," she nails it with Kinetic. The flow is good, the characters are strong, and it's a non-stop wild ride from beginning to end.

Annie Fox is a kick-butt heroine who's just as flawed as anyone else in the world, except she has super powers as a result of genetic alteration by The Organization. She and her friends have a variety of skills which complement each other as they fight criminals. What I love about this gang is that they're all strong, but they're not too perfect to be real. The good guys & bad guys are intermixed, with none of them predictable in their goodness or badness.

You can find out more about the book here at Amazon, or here at S.K. Anthony's website. Her blog tour is going screamingly well, and excitement is high.

What I wanted to know was the inside scoop in the author's household. What does "book release day" mean for her? Will she be glued to the computer or hiding under her covers until the weekend comes?

Here's what she has to say:

"On my release day you can expect me to bite my nails while browsing for wigs. Why? Because I'll probably pull my hair out once I'm done with the biting. And even more exciting, I'll also be changing diapers and basking in the beauty of it. Later on, I'll have the hubby pop a bottle of wine, and I'll sit back and drop one single happy tear."

I think she'll be shopping for a wig so she can go out in public without being mobbed by adoring fans.

  1. I'm sitting here with some tears... thanks Lynda! I was reserving them for tomorrow but what the heck? Happy tears are always welcomed. Thank you so much for your honest and kind words :)


I love comments, and will always answer them, partly because I like having the last word and partly because I just like getting to know the people who read my blog. (Note: if the post is more than a couple weeks old, your comment will automatically go into the "needs approval" folder, but I will still publish it and reply!)
