The only issue that I have with authoralerts is that they don't really cover ebooks well. It's great for new books or re-releases though, just doesn't cover when books become available for ebook.

Today and possibly tomorrow you can buy Shadow of Freedom, along with six other books for $18. On the 16th, Shadow of Freedom will cost $9.99.

$8.01 for six books is a bargain. Especially as it includes a new book in the Darkship series by Sarah A Hoyt.
I go there about 30 minutes before the 16th EDT but it said it was no longer available.

I'm sort of embarassed to say that. . .

I don't pay much attention to what books come out when. I have a hard time remembering when my next dental appointment is! Or when I need to change the oil in my car.

Is there a comprehensive schedule published somewhere?

Edit: Never mind on the schedule, I sort of pulled the trigger on this post before I read all the prior posts! I forget to do that sometimes too!

I was just messing around on Amazon and I see that their Advanced Search for books has an option so you can search what's coming out for a given month. Searching by genre, then Kindle, then March 2013 showed me some books coming out I didn't know about such as some 50th Anniversary Doctor Who stuff being put out by BBC Digital. Too bad they're $9.99 a book.

Missed this but I still have 5 free ebook coupons from the PlanetBaen game so I should be good to go.

The one I'm looking forward to is 5th book in The Watch series by Sergei Lukyanenko called The New Watch. Its a conclusion to a great show so far
Here is more about the series if anybody cares.

How annoying. I was hoping I was done with that series. Now I'll have to buy another book.

Well then for some good news.

Some sites list it as if it will be published in May 2013.

Very cool. For some reason I had not seen the advance search before. I do like that I can search on both sf&f and get English only results.

For reasons only known to Amazon, the Advanced search link is only available from their books page, not their kindle books page, even though advanced search includes an option to restrict the search to Kindle books.

I'm eagerly awaiting for the release of The Demonologist by Andrew Pyper. Release date is March 5.

Quote:
Fans of The Historian won’t be able to put down this spellbinding literary horror story in which a Columbia professor must use his knowledge of demonic mythology to rescue his daughter from the Underworld.

Professor David Ullman’s expertise in the literature of the demonic—notably Milton’s Paradise Lost—has won him wide acclaim. But David is not a believer.

One afternoon he receives a visitor at his campus office, a strikingly thin woman who offers him an invitation: travel to Venice, Italy, witness a “phenomenon,” and offer his professional opinion, in return for an extravagant sum of money. Needing a fresh start, David accepts and heads to Italy with his beloved twelve-year-old daughter Tess.

What happens in Venice will send David on an unimaginable journey from skeptic to true believer, as he opens himself up to the possibility that demons really do exist. In a terrifying quest guided by symbols and riddles from the pages of Paradise Lost, David attempts to rescue his daughter from the Unnamed—a demonic entity that has chosen him as its messenger.

After playing around with it for a while, I find that I still have to wade through several pages of porn, indie authors and PD books for sale by people trying to game the Amazon system. I would guess this behavior won't change until it starts to obviously cost Amazon money.

I'm looking forward to three (more) March books, all in established UF series - the new Mercy Thompson, Kitty Norville, and Elemental Assassin books. That's in addition to Tom Holt's Doughnut and the eighth Walker Papers book, which just came out.

I've already read and loved When We Wake, and am looking forward to Midnight Blue Light Special eagerly. I've also got my eyes on Sister Mine (Nalo Hopkinson), Girl Defective (Simmonne Howell), House For All Seasons (Jenn J McLeod), and The Blue-Ribbon Jalapeno Society Jubilee (Carolyn Brown).
