Waiting on Wednesday #64 - Process by Sarah Stodola and The Quick and the Undead by Kimberly Raye


"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. 

This week I am waiting on 2 unrelated books. The first book is Process: The Writing Lives of Great Authors by Sarah Stodola.  


This sounds like a good book if you like to read about how authors write. In particular this book states that what sets it apart from others of its type is that "Process puts the true methods of writers on display.Each chapter contains a mini biography of one of the world’s most lauded authors, focused solely on his or her writing process. Drawn from both existing material and original research and interviews, Stodola brings to light the fascinating, unique, and illuminating techniques behind these literary behemoths." It's supposed to focus on really how they write and not techniques as much. This book is due out January 20, 2015 from Amazon Publishing.




The second book I am waiting on is coming out December 31, 2015
It sounds like a hot paranormal romance which I haven't read in a while.  "Welcome to Tombstone, Texas, where anything is possible, even your wildest fantasy. Once a haven to outlaws, Tombstone is now a tourist town that gives travelers a taste of the old West. What visitors don’t realize, however, is that the super-hot cowboys, gunslingers, and lawmen walking the streets aren't actors—they’re originals. These ancient vampires claimed Tombstone two centuries ago. 
So step right up, folks, and book your trip today! The outlaws of Tombstone will be waiting . . .
Travel blogger Riley Davenport loves her job, travelling to the most exotic places in the world. Even better, it keeps her one step ahead of her stalking ex. The last thing she wants in her life is a strong alpha male. But that’s exactly what she gets when she comes face-to-face with Sheriff Boone Jarrett, a hero right out of her most erotic fantasies. 
Boone isn't just the law in Tombstone, Texas. He’s also an ancient vampire and the target of a crazed killer. He certainly doesn't have time for romance. But a temporary fling? Now that he can handle." Should be interesting. I like the premise that it's vampires instead of re-enactors that are staffing the town. I am curious about the world building and what sorts of powers/tolerances the vampires have and how they came to live as a group in this town. I hope the author pays as much attention to that as to the romantic parts.

So, what book or books are you waiting on this week? Leave a link or some other information in the comments below. I'd love to check it out and add to my TBR list.

  5. Ooh, you're right, definitely different! I'm very curious about the writing book. It's always interesting to hear how authors write, since it seems like everyone does it differently. :) Great picks!
