Coming Soon: Necrotic City by Leland Lydecker

Happy Friday everyone!

Just a quick note to tell you that I recently did the editing of the back blurb and the one-line tag line for Leland Lydecker’s latest novel coming out, Necrotic City.  Keep an eye out for it, probably in the next two weeks or so, and I’ll be sure to let you know when it drops officially.


One Line Pitch:

Necrotic City is a chaotic, decaying world populated by Heroes and Enforcers trapped in a dehumanized high-tech future all fighting for their survival.


Adrian is a vat-grown human known as a Hero. Genetically-engineered Heroes, with their implanted nanotechnology, serve as the superhumanly resilient, altruistic peacekeepers of their creators, the Company, and the citizens who live in their tightly controlled city. Internal matters like corruption and criminal negligence are kept strictly out of a Hero’s jurisdiction, but when Adrian begins to uncover the ugly secrets of the government that created him, his sense of justice forces him to act.

Cut loose in a city wracked by civil unrest, hunted by Enforcers and flesh hackers alike, Adrian quickly learns that there is no safe place for a Company man.

Book Bloggers & Reviewers

I’ve started to collect names of reviewers, with blogs and genre type to put into a spreadsheet. I have found lately, doing a bit of Book PR for Literally PR [ ] that I have a hard time remembering who reviews what genre and where their blogs are located.

I’ve spent some time in the past months making some great social media contacts, including those fabulous talk show hosts at Authors on the Air [ a special hello to Pam Stack of Authors on the Air with Pam Stack, Lucie Dunn of Author Spotlight with Lucie Dunn and Misty Rayburn of the top shelf book publicity and resources ! ] and have decided to ask you, the WordPress-verse, if you are a blogger / book reviewer and you want to be part of the spreadsheet, please leave me your information here.  Once I find a book that matches your genre/s, I’ll be in touch.  You can find me on twitter @BookDoctorDara.

My good friends at @Bibliocrunch run an #indiechat every tuesday night on twitter, and the topics are always fascinating.  @Miral Sattar was kind enough to point me to a list of Indie Reviewers, on The Indie Book Review [].

So, pick your poison.. what’s your pleasure ? Is it murder/ thriller / psychological suspense?  Are you a romantic at heart ? What about steampunk ? Magical Realism ? Paranormal ? Womens’ Fiction? Historical Fiction ? Tell me… what keeps you up at night under the covers with a flashlight?
