Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

This week’s Can’t-Wait offering – Immortal Creators by Jill Bowers

#science fiction #fantasy

Sixteen-year-old author Scott Beck never wanted to be an Immortal Writer—not after his father was killed on a mission attempting to dispatch his own villain. Scott blames Shakespeare and the Writers for his father’s untimely demise, but no amount of hatred will prevent the oncoming alien attack, which has come over to reality straight from Scott’s book.

Scott is forced to collect his characters—an Air Force colonel, two of the best pilots on Earth, and an alien enthusiast from the year 2134—and defeat the alien king before Earth is obliterated by his ships. But an odd sickness Scott calls his Writing Fever might just kill him before the aliens have the chance.

I can’t deny it – initially it was all about the cover. But when I read the blurb I was sold – I really like the idea of Shakespeare getting the blame for the demise of an Immortal Writer…

  1. An “oncoming alien attack, which has come over to reality straight from Scott’s book”?! That sounds so wild! I love the whole concept here, and yes, I’m definitely curious to see how Shakespeare is to blame in this. Great pick this week!

    • Thank you, Barb – yes. It was the cover that stopped me in my tracks. I’m hoping this is going to yet another really good read – I’ve have a number of them recently:)

    • Thank you, Laura. I’m hoping I enjoy it, too. As it’s a Netgalley arc, I’ll be reviewing it unless it turns out to be a real dud… Have a good week.

  2. I have to be honest and state that the cover creeps me out a bit….but oh, that plot!! I’m SOLD on that plot!! I LOVE that The Bard is somehow involved in this! And having a writer in cahoots with his own characters…. Oh, man, I GOTTA get this one!!! YAAAAAAASS!!!!

    So I’m having Scotty (of Star Trek fame) beam this one up to me, right off my Goodreads shelves, where I’m adding it in a warp minute!! Lol.

    Thanks for putting this one on my Super Duper Sub-Atomic Galactic Radar!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Thanks as well for commenting on my CWW post!! HUGS!!! ❤ ❤ ❤ 🙂 🙂 🙂

    • I’m thrilled you are tracking this one down as well:)) I’m really looking forward to discovering what you make of it, too:)). Have a lovely week, Mariax

  3. I like that idea too! This sounds like it will be fun. 🙂 I hope you enjoy it when you read it, Sarah.

  4. I gotta agree with you on this concept, too. I actually was turned off by the cover a little–an alien eye, yawn yawn–but that blurb is AWESOME. Shakespeare and aliens! Yes, please! 😀
