My selection for this Wednesday is from a favorite author of mine. I think she might be a favorite author of a lot of Urban Fantasy fans. Her Otherworld series is insanely good, I can’t wait to read more about Savannah… Savannah Levine is in terrible danger, and for once she’s powerless to help herself. At the conclusion of Waking the Witch, Savannah swore that she would give up her powers if it would help a young girl. Little did she know that someone would take her up on that promi […]
Genre: Science Fiction RomanceSeries: unknownParanormal: AliensPurchase: Amazon.com | CarinaPress.comStalk the Author: Blog | TwitterReview copy from netgalley.com PJVs QUICKIE POV:True Believers is a far reaching and rather engrossing tale that had me captivated from the start. The premise is very original and quite titillating to those handy brain cells. I was quite impressed with the authors expansion on a belief system, a mythical race, science fiction technology and milita […]
Genre: Paranormal RomanceParanormal: WitchPre-Order for Dec 27th: Amazon.com | CarinaPress.comStalk the Author: Blog | TwitterReview copy provided by Netgalley.com PJVs QUICKIE POV:Stone Kissed left me scratching my head and smiling at the same time. I didn’t know what to make of this particular romantic tidbit. Stevens weaves words together in an almost dreamlike pattern. The story is wrapped in similes and metaphors and abstract personifications that had me reading with my ey […]

Ever wonder what an author does all day around the time of a book release?? Well the fabulous Jill Myles, author of the Succubus Diaries quenches our curiosity… A Day in the Life I’ve been asked what it’s like to be an author waiting on book release.

Take this time to shamelessly promote your BOOK RELATED giveaways. I have to remind you, because it happens every time, if it is not a book, or something related to a book, I’m deleting it. For ease of navigating you might want to just put what you are giving away instead of the blog name.
Genre: Paranormal RomanceSeries: Night Huntress World Series (Book 2)Paranormal: VampirePurchase: Amazon.com | BookDepository.comStalk the Author: Web | Twitter | Facebook PJVs QUICKIE POV:The second book in Frost’s Night Huntress World series is quite a treat. I was stand-offish regarding this book at first. Mainly because the hero is non other than the mysterious Mencheres. Introduced in the Night Huntress novel, Mencheres has always been the super powerful and untouchable sort of […]

For the 2011 Vampire Challenge I have selected some potential books that I might be sampling this year. Do you want to know what I just might be reading. I say might because I am a very fickle being, almost ADD at some points. I get distracted by shiny pretty covers and set aside books that don’t grab my attention from the get-go, therefor there is no guarantee in the universe that I call home. You, too my friend can join the vampire challenge! Just click here. #1 – This Side of the […]

Q#1 – What do you think about stereotypical characters? Do characters like “Honey bun” – the evil stepmother & Shelby – the teen acting out, bother you, or are you accepting of them? I don’t mind stereotypes. Stereotypes are usually there for a reason. If a character acts out abnormally, people can’t relate to that character. What teen can’t relate to a pain-in-the-butt step-mom or dad? I know when I was a teenager – way, way ago – […]

When I received the Apple iPod Touch for my birthday I was very excited. Being an Apple junkee – (I’ll elaborate my addiction – 2 Mac Pros and a MacBook) – I was jonesing big time for an iPhone. Unfortunately, I have signed my soul to T-Mobile and my spidey sense picks up the hint of evil every time I near an AT&T dealer…so…*sigh* no iPhone for me (at least within the next 14 months). Next best thing, iPod Touch, it can do everything an iPhone can do, exce […]
