NW September Releases!

Today I am happy to bring you guys this month's new Northwest author releases! There aren't too many new ones, but nonetheless they look fantastic. Without further ado, let's see what's new!

Title: Sweet Shadows (Medusa Girls #2)

Release Date: September 4, 2012
Publisher: Katherine Tegen Books
Pages: 328, Hardcover
Three teenage descendants of Medusa, now united, must claim their heritage to fight the monsters escaped from the abyss.
Gretchen may have known she was a descendant of Medusa long before her sisters--after all, she's spent her life fighting the monsters that escape the abyss--but that doesn't mean it will be easy to teach the other girls the ropes.
Greer has pressing social commitments on her plate and precious little time to train in her newfound powers. But that wretched second sight won't leave her alone, and her fabled heritage seems to be creeping into her fashionable life.
Grace has worries closer to home--like why her brother, Thane, has disappeared. He's hiding something. Could it possibly be related to the secret heritage the triplets share?

Could it be betrayal of the ultimate kind? Betrayal features real-life crime-solving techniques, heart-stopping suspense, plenty of red herrings, hard-hitting ethical questions, and information about the Amanda Knox case that inspired the novel.

Oh no, not more poly drama!
Will and Tiger would try anything to save their marriage--even monogamy.
Geek love isn’t always shiny. The more Will escaped into comics and games, the more his wife Tiger turned outward to social, sexual pursuits. Not that she had to turn all that far: Will and Tiger’s lovers Siouxie and Stephen share the House of Cats, the suburban commune the four polyamorous folks call home. And it’s all been leading up to Tiger’s shattering announcement in the middle of a road trip: “I just don’t see you as a primary partner anymore.”
Luckily for Will, this trip is leading them to the rural township of Butterly, Oregon, to visit Tiger’s father and new stepmother. From the moment the geezer newlyweds fling open the door to welcome them, it’s impossible not to see the glow of their love. Impossible not to feel jealous…and inspired. Could it be that, between games of D&D, Buffy theme nights, and hot tub parties, Tiger and Will are missing out on the joys of a traditional lifestyle? What are those joys, exactly? A comic consideration of love, lust, and geekdom in an era of expanding lifestyle possibilities.

Jared and Sophie become friends while walking the guidance counselor’s new puppy, but when his parents object to this arrangement, Jared fabricates a series of elaborate lies to meet Sophie on the sly.

That's all of the Northwest September releases this month (I hope I didn't miss any)! Which release(s) are you most excited for?
