*I'm not a big make-up buff (and I tend to have allergies) but I love the cake powder from NYX and they are running a cool contest on their site so check it out.

*Here's the latest from the Berkley newsletter:

Ghouls, Ghouls, Ghouls
Victoria Laurie

When M.J. Holliday and the crew of her cable TV show, Ghoul Getters, venture to the haunted ruins of Dunlow Castle in Ireland, drawn by the legend of hidden treasure, they hope the road will rise up to meet them, that the wind will always be at their backs, and that the resident phantom won't push them off a cliff. If they treasure their lives, M.J. and her ghost busters need to get the drop on the menacing phantom...

Mad Skills
Walter Greatshell

Unconscious for fourteen months after a debilitating accident, Maddy Grant awakens at the Braintree Institute, where scientists have successfully implanted her with a radical technology designed to correct her brain injury. But Maddy is more than cured. Her intellect has been enhanced to process information faster than a computer, an ability that's sending her emotions into overdrive.
To monitor her condition, the institute sends Maddy to the nearby village of Harmony, where she will be free to interact with the community. But Braintree's scientists are not only monitoring her behavior, they're modifying it, reprogramming her personality to become someone else.
A killer.

Home for a Spell
Madelyn Alt

As the newest witch in Indiana, Maggie O'Neill already has plenty to deal with. So being hobbled by a broken leg doesn't help. Neither does the fact that her best friend and upstairs neighbor is getting ready to tie the knot with her own boyfriend and move away. This leads Maggie to wonder if it isn't time to find herself a new pad.
But when she finds a place, Maggie's dream of new digs turns into a nightmare: the apartment manager is found dead before she can even sign the lease. And Maggie finds herself not only searching for a new home, but for a frightfully clever killer.

A Witch In Time
Madelyn Alt

Maggie O'Neill, Stony Mill, Indiana's newest witch, is dealing with both her burgeoning love life and her sister's giving birth to twins when she learns that a local teenager has been found dead. Later, at the hospital, she hears a whispered conversation that sends chills down her spine. Could the conversation be related to the teen's death? Or to a murder that hasn't happened yet? It may take all her witchy intuition to find out.

*Plus we have Christine Feehan's Ruthless Game, In Too Deep from Jayne Ann Krentz, and Emma Holly's latest Angel at Dawn. For a complete list visit their website and sign up for the newsletter while you are there.
