The View From Monday - May 6, 2013

Happy 1st Monday in May. This past weekend was terrific with Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) and May the 4th Be with You falling on the same day. I had a grand time at FCBD this year.

This is a heavy publication week, which I love!  Here is a printable PDF of this week's releases. Take it shopping, then make an origami book out of it!

There are 4 debuts out tomorrow.

Generation V by M. L. Brennan. I'm really enjoying this so far.

S.D. Perry's first original novel (as in not a tie-in or part of another series) - The Summer Man.

Sidney Poitier's first novel - Montaro Caine.

There is also the US debut of The Finno-Ugrian Vampire by Noemi Szecsi.

John Mantooh has an eNovella being released tomorrow - Broken Branch.  It includes a preview of The Year of the Storm (June 4, 2013)

Debut Author Challenge alumni also have new novels out this week:

Chuck Wendig starts a new series, Gods and Monsters, with Unclean Spirits.

Kira Brady continues her Deadglass Trilogy with Hearts of Shadow.

Bec McMaster's Heart of Iron comes out tomorrow as well. It's the second novel in her London Steampunk series.
