Happy Release to 'Julia Vanishes' by Catherine Egan

Julia Vanishes Julia has the unusual ability to be . . . unseen. Not invisible, exactly. Just beyond most people's senses. It's a dangerous trait in a city that has banned all forms of magic and drowns witches in public Cleansings. But it's a useful trait for a thief and a spy. And Julia has learned--crime pays.
Her latest job is paying very well indeed. Julia is posing as a housemaid in the grand house of Mrs. Och, where an odd assortment of characters live and work: A disgraced professor who sends her to fetch parcels containing bullets, spiders, and poison. An aristocratic houseguest who is locked in the basement each night. And a mysterious young woman who is clearly in hiding--though from what or whom?
Worse, Julia suspects that there's a connection between these people and the killer leaving a trail of bodies across the frozen city. The more she learns, the more she wants to be done with this unnatural job. To go back to the safety of her friends and fellow thieves. But Julia is entangled in a struggle between forces more powerful than she'd ever imagined. Escape will come at a terrible price.

CATHERINE EGAN grew up in Vancouver, Canada. Since then, she has lived on a volcanic island in Japan (which erupted while she was there and sent her hurtling straight into the arms of her now-husband), in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Beijing, on an oil rig in the middle of Bohai Bay, then in New Jersey, and now in New Haven, Connecticut. She is currently occupied with writing books and fighting dragon armies with her warrior children. You can read more about her at catherineegan.com. Follow her on Twitter at @ByCatherineEgan.

Last Night, A Superhero Saved My Life. The Anthology. + GIVEAWAY

Happy release day to Last Night, A Superhero Saved My Life!

There’s ample insight to be found here, not the least of which is that superheroes have a deep, resounding place in our cultural and individual psyches.” Booklist

Neil Gaiman, Jodi Picoult, Brad Meltzer, and an All-Star Roster on the Caped Crusaders That Changed Their Lives
Edited by Liesa Mignogna

Our cultural fascination with superheroes is no secret. Every year, adaptations of classic comic book stories hit both big and small screens. These movies and TV shows are often hotly debated with many becoming box office hits. In LAST NIGHT A SUPERHERO SAVED MY LIFE: Neil Gaiman, Jodi Picoult, Brad Meltzer, and an All-Star Roster on the Caped Crusaders That Changed Their Lives (Thomas Dunne Books; On-sale: June 7, 2016; ISBN: 9781250043924; $25.99), Liesa Mignogna, VP, Editorial Director at Simon Pulse, edits an insightful and touching collection of essays from some of today’s most notable authors. 

The idea for LAST NIGHT A SUPERHERO SAVED MY LIFE comes from Mignogna’s own longstanding infatuation with Batman. She has a room dedicated to her collection of comic books and memorabilia, guests who spend the night will find a Batman comforter in their room, they will drink coffee out of a Batman mug in the morning, and they might notice a few photos lying around from Liesa’s Batman-themed wedding.  While one may think this is mere fanaticism, a holdover from a childhood night out at the movies, readers will read the harrowing yet ultimately inspiring tale behind Mignogna’s attachment to The Dark Knight. 

As LAST NIGHT A SUPERHERO SAVED MY LIFE underscores, our personal connections with superheroes runs deep, often to the very core of our being. These caped crusaders, masked men, and warrior princesses help us through hard times. They allow us to escape the discomfort of everyday life; they become our role models; and, ultimately, they give us hope that all will be okay.  

LAST NIGHT A SUPERHERO SAVED MY LIFE gives readers the chance to connect to their beloved authors, while those same authors connect to their beloved superheroes, and within that feedback loop of respect and admiration lies a stellar and phenomenally accessible anthology full of thrills, chills, and spills.

Contributors include New York Times bestsellers Neil Gaiman, Jodi Picoult, Brad Meltzer, Christopher Golden, Leigh Bardugo, Carrie Vaughn, and Jamie Ford, as well as award-winners and mainstays like Joe R. Lansdale, Austin Grossman, Ron Currie, Jr., Delilah S. Dawson, Scott Westerfeld, and others. LAST NIGHT A SUPERHERO SAVED MY LIFE is sure to follow in the footsteps of Grant Morrison's Supergods as its authors share their most hilarious and most heart wrenching experiences with their chosen defenders to explain why superheroes matter, what they tell us about who we are, and what they mean for our future.
