A to Z Blog Challenge Coming

I've decided to join this blog also in the daily A to Z Blog Challenge beginning April 1 and going all next month.

Over 1,000 blogs join in sharing something new and linked to the alphabet each day. Of course I'm sharing minis and miniatures-related topics so be sure to stop by!

I'm also sharing some new short fiction and other things at my GirlZombieAuthors blog so check it out!

Got the New Miniatures Mystery!

Oh fun! I got my (signed!) copy today of Margaret Grace's (Camille Minichino's) latest miniatures mystery, Manhattan in Miniature: A Miniature Mystery! Not only is this a fun book in her dollhouse series, but I blurbed it and got a quote on the back. How cool is that! Thanks, Camille!

(I'm not biased but I think this is one of the prettiest of her covers, too!) (The Kindle and ebook aren't out yet - official release is April 6. Stay tuned for an upcoming interview!)

New Scary Doll Book

Something slightly different for the doll lover.  I love dolls and love reading scary stories. The bonus is that this also includes doll photos!

 The Doll Collection, (releasing March 10) edited by World Fantasy and Hugo Award winner Ellen Datlow, features all kinds of dolls... the ones that you likely won't want to meet... 

Featuring everything from life-sized clockwork dolls to all-too-human Betsy Wetsy-type baby dolls, these stories play into  true creepiness of the doll trope, but avoid the clich├ęs that often show up in stories of this type. 

 The collection is illustrated with photos of dolls taken by Datlow and other devoted doll collectors from the science fiction and fantasy field.  

Stories by: Stephen Gallagher, Joyce Carol Oates, Gemma Files, Pat Cadigan, Lucy Sussex, Tim Lebbon, Seanan McGuire, Carrie Vaughn, Stephen Graham Jones, Miranda Siemienowicz, Mary Robinette Kowal, Richard Bowes, Genevieve Valentine, Richard Kadrey, Veronica Schanoes, John Langan, Jeffrey Ford. - From Amazon.
