New urban fantasy from Lawrence Watt-Evans

One of my favorite writers, Lawrence Watt-Evans has decided to start self-publishing his new urban fantasy series.  The first novel in that series has gone live on Amazon Kindle for a very reasonable price of $5.99 for a DRM free novel.  It is a combination of horror/urban fantasy and is closer to classic horror than the current Buffy derived urban fantasy.

One-Eyed Jack  $5.99 on Amazon

Cast in Fury (The Chronicles of Elantra)Michelle SagaraThe Cast In series is very good, but this is not really a new release. It is one of the older books in the series. I would purchase the bundle of the books instead of this one individually.
