Speaking of giveaways: recently we gave away an ARC copy of White Witch, Black Curse by Kim Harrison under the condition that the winner wrote a review of the book. Bridget Locke, the lucky winner, wrote hers and posted at her place. Go check it out: here

The Announcement:

One of the most anticipated releases of 2009 is Blue Diablo by Ann Aguirre – The first book in the Corine Solomon series comes out on April 7th. The blurb says:

Right now, I’m a redhead. I’ve been blonde and brunette as the situation requires, though an unscheduled color change usually means relocating in the middle of the night. So far, I’m doing well here. Nobody knows what I’m running from. And I’d like to keep it that way…

Eighteen months ago, Corine Solomon crossed the border to Mexico City, fleeing her past, her lover, and her “gift”. Corine, a handler, can touch something and know its history—and sometimes, its future. Using her ability, she can find the missing—and that’s why people never stop trying to find her. People like her ex, Chance…

Chance, whose uncanny luck has led him to her doorstep, needs her help. Someone dear to them both has gone missing in Laredo, Texas, and the only hope of finding her is through Corine’s gift. But their search may prove dangerous as the trail leads them into a strange dark world of demons and sorcerers, ghosts and witchcraft, zombies—and black magic…

And, as part of her Virtual Tour, Ann Aguirre will be here at The Book Smugglers this Wednesday with a guest post where she will generously GIVE AWAY 5 ARCs of the book. Come back then for more details!

Here is the complete list of stops during the tour.
