Anxiously Awaiting The Grim Steeper

I am serious about the series I love and waiting on my favorites is never easy, nor is it easy to wait to share books I have had the pleasure of contributing too.  The Grim Steeper by Amanda Cooper is out at February 2nd and I am anxiously counting down the days until it arrives at my door. I pre ordered it, I did, for those of you who may think I get my books for free please know that this is not the case. I am very lucky to be selected to get advanced reading copies of a few books a year but most of the time I am the one pre ordering and paying for the books I want to read,  as soon as I hear they are ready to pre order. Thought I am getting used to reading on my Ipad Kindle app, it is the paper back treasure that I long to hold in my hand and display as trophies on my shelf.
Amanda Cooper's Teapot Collector Series is one that I have found so exhilarating. When I heard of it's release for pre order and saw the cover I knew I found a series that I would love. I was so pleased when it arrived and it was everything I could have hoped for and more!

I wrote to Amanda Cooper and let her know just how much I enjoyed reading Tempest in a Tea Pot and we connected over our love of all things tea.
When Amanda was sending Shadow of a Spout to print she asked me if I would write something to be included in the back of the book and I was so delighted to be asked. I wrote an introduction to tea which can be found in the last few pages of Shadow of a Spout.  It was a very proud moment for me. 
Now with the up coming release of The Grim Steeper I am thrilled to have been asked to add some information to the end of this book as well! To see The Grim Steeper in print and with my own name in it is such a thrill and a privilege! I can not wait to have it in my hands and see what happens next! 

I can not wait for March to arrive and the release of Amanda Coopers The Grim Steeper. I hope that you will pre order and read along with me! You can pre order from The Book Depository by Clicking here.
