Posted February 5, 2013 by Kathy Davie in Reading Books, Upcoming Publications

Yeah, a little slow this month. My email access went kablooey everywhere, and it’s taken forever to get caught up, rid of, and tidied up. So things have been rather overwhelming, and I’m trying to find all the new book info and bits for the Hodgepodge as well…

The below are coming out in February 2013 — yeah, only the authors I’ve already read—so get your wallets out and prepare to click or drive!
