Free Comic Book Day 2012: Preview of Cassandra Clare's Clockwork Angel Manga

So this just caught me a bit by surprise:

It's the cover of a Yen Press preview of the Clockwork Angel manga that isn't being published until December 2012.  It'll be available at most local comic book shops as part of Free Comic Book Day on May 5, 2012.

You can see the entire lineup of free books at the awesome site Comics Beat here.

Random Tuesdays: Site Announcements, Television Talk and Other Really Random Things

This week's Random Tuesday post is a hodge-podge of television rambles, website announcements and various odds and ends that have built up in my head over the course of the last few days.  First the announcements!


I'm excited (and a bit nervous) to announce that Working for the Mandroid will be participating in its first author blog tour during the month of October.  We will also be participating in our second, third and fourth blog tour over the course of the next month as well.  No one has ever accused me of being an underachiever.

It starts next week with Richard Blunt's Lucas Trent: Guardian of Magic.  I'll have a review up on Monday, and the author will stop by for a guest post next Tuesday.  I just started this book and it looks like it will be an interesting YA title.  More about that entire tour can be found here.

I found out a little while ago that WFTM will also be hosting a giveaway and review of Bloodlines by Lindsay Anne Kendal as part of her blog tour on October 18.  The author might also stop by for a guestpost some time around then as well.

Then comes my attempt to break out of my angel rut with an adult take on the celestial creatures - Nephilim by Mary Ann Loesch.  We're the second to last stop on the tour with a review on October 27.  To see a list of the entire tour, click here.

And finally on November 2, as part of the blog tour for Devil's Hands by John ME Patterson, we'll have a review.  You can find more information about this tour here.

We're also participating in the Spooktacular Blog Hop scheduled October 24-31.  It's another hop hosted by the lovely Kathy at I Am a Reader, Not a Writer and co-hosted by Rhianna at The Diary of a Bookworm.  These have been so much fun that I'm eager to participate again.


So I think those things will keep me busy for the next few weeks.  Moving on...  random (and short) thoughts about SupernaturalTerra Nova, Starbucks, audio books and comic books.
