i'm interested to hear how many (if any) stories are in it from someone who got it, and perhaps how many pages that is.  i think i remember reading there was one story in it.

From a blog

Penguin is offering, as part of its “eSpecial” program, three anthology stories that were originally available only as part of a collection.  Father MineBlack Dagger Brotherhood Insider’s Guide (Retail $15.00). Father Mine features a story about Zsadist and Bella which I’ve heard is all angsty and full of woe.

Well, is it worth the money Ashley? I was looking to see if anyone had any reviews for it yet. (=

This is a good summary a reviewer on Amazon does on it:

The Insider's Guide includes-
*82 page novella about Zsadist, Bella and Nalla (covers the birth and months afterward concentrating on Zsadist's adjustment to fatherhood)

* The Brother's stats (age, weight, eyes etc), personal questions answer sheet (e.i. fav TV show, what do you fear most?, most romantic thing you've ever done), and Ward's personal 'interview' with each brother

*Writer's guide -for those who want to know about breaking into the publishing business Ward gives some advice. Also included is the proposal for the brotherhood series that was sent through her agent to publishers.

*Deleted scenes -your absolutely going to love this if your Z fan *sigh*

*Kicks and Giggles -interesting quotes from each of the books

*Brother's on the board (that's Ward's discussion board) -imagine if-you-will that the brother's are regular posters on a discussion board this is what they write about themselves and others (they tease each other unmercifully)-some very funny scenes! Also includes Phury and Cormia's mating ceremony.

*Slices of life -little vignettes that Ward posted on the board about the brothers. Includes Movie Night, Wrath and the Letter Opener, In the Nature of Phury, and The Interview That Never Happened.

*Question and answer with Ward

*Time Line of the Brotherhood

*Table of abbreviations (i.e. -BTW)

*Picture of what the old language looks like

*The Brotherhood's Interview

*In Memoriam -Wellsie and Ward talk

*Excerpt -Lover Avenged (Rhev's book)

He also says it is a must read for fans, but to not read it before the first 6 books because there will be spoilers for you.

 

eta - attempting to fix formatting, ugh.

It's a pretty big book.  I think it's worth the price.  It looks like it has a lot of good information in it.

Thanks for the info, she is one author I usually go ahead and buy, but after the last book, I wasn't to sure if I'd even try this one.  Now I know I will!
