This Book Was Already on My Birthday List...

...but now that I've seen the cover, I know I really have to have it!

Huzzah for Jennifer Freitag's upcoming release, Plenilune! I'm a big fan of her debut novel The Shadow Things (great for later high-school, adult readers), and I'm anticipating great things from this new release coming October 20th!

Please tell me you've heard of her! If not, here's a bit about the talented gal...
JENNIFER FREITAG lives with her husband in a house they call Clickitting, with their two cats Minnow and Aquila, and their own fox kit due to be born in early December. Jennifer writes in no particular genre because she never learned how, she is made of sparks like Boys of Blur, and if she could grasp the elements, she would bend them like lightning. Until then, she sets words on fire.
Living with her must be excruciating.

But what's this book with its unusual name all about? Well, my friends, I'm as much in the dark as you are since I haven't read the thing yet. Except for the fact that I've read the synopsis. I guess I will enlighten you, too...
The fate of Plenilune hangs on the election of the Overlord, for which Rupert de la Mare and his brother are the only contenders, but when Rupert’s unwilling bride-to-be uncovers his plot to murder his brother, the conflict explodes into civil war. 

To assure the minds of the lord-electors of Plenilune that he has some capacity for humanity, Rupert de la Mare has been asked to woo and win a lady before he can become the Overlord, and he will do it—even if he has to kidnap her. 

En route to Naples to catch a suitor, Margaret Coventry was not expecting a suitor to catch her.
 It's a planetary fantasy. "A what?" you say. Well, Jennifer is so kind as to 'splain >here<.

I've already added Plenilune to my Want-to-Read shelf on Goodreads, but >you might want to do so<, too. To remind yourself and your friends to check it out on the 20th.

I'm going to have to decide whether to buy an ebook version of it right off or wait for a paperback (cuz it's soooo beautiful!!!) for my birthday in December. Or do both. Or just splurge and buy the paperback right on the 20th.

I don't know.

Help me out here, will ya? Let me know what you think I should do!
