In PW's June 6 Romance feature, Singh said, "Writing is so very right for me that even when it's hard, it's still the only thing I can imagine doing, the only thing I want to be doing." About her fourth Guild Hunter novel, PW said, "Singh's vampires, angels, hunters, and archangels engage in global power struggles within a complex larger story that new readers will find challenging. An engrossing narrative, vivid characters, and a well-imagined world mitigate those difficulties, resulting in a heart-pounding and strongly emotional read."
Woods's 19th title to star detective-turned-lawyer Stone Barrington --the first was New York Dead, back in 199l--enjoyed a six-week hardcover run at the beginning of the year. In a recent interview, Woods was asked about the increasing practice of authors co-writing (see today's Fiction and Nonfiction lists). His reply: "I am opposed to collaborating, because then you have to give the other writer half the money." Re the author's next opus, due Sept. 20: far be it from us to spill any plot-related beans ... but the title is Son of Stone.
"'Could we take his legs off?' 'Take Eddie's legs off? How?' 'I have a hacksaw under the front seat,' Roma added.... Because she was a veterinarian she had a number of things in her vehicle that other people didn't.... 'But don't they detach somehow?' Wrong thing to say. Maggie laid a protective hand on Eddie's thigh. 'Do your legs detach?' she asked."
