Chelsea Mueller on Borrowed Souls Updates and an Urban Allies Giveaway Note from VBC: This is a cross post from Chelsea’s author blog.

Christina Henry Q&A & Giveaway: On Alice, Red Queen, and Surprises

Christina Henry Q&A & Giveaway: On Alice, Red Queen, and Surprises Christina Henry is the author of the Black Wings urban fantasy series, books featuring an angel of death and—wait for it—her loyal gargoyle. To be honest, however, I didn’t hear of her until she took a huge departure and went classical—with a twist. Alice came out last year, and I was blown away by the way the story is utterly changed, and yet so very similar. Frankly, I loved it. As did so many others...

Rachel Caine Q&A: The Great Library, YA vs. Adult, spin-offs and what’s next!

Rachel Caine Q&A: The Great Library, YA vs. Adult, spin-offs and what’s next! Rachel Caine’s name is pretty synonymous with urban fantasy—both of the YA and adult varieties. Her books can arguably be called a staple of the genre (the Morganville Vampires and Weather Warden series alone are testaments to that). Last year saw the debut of Rachel Caine’s new series The Great Library. With the awesome world-building, and mysterious characters, it’s no wonder Ink and Bone made VBC’s...

Kevin Hearne Guest Post: Vampires as Machiavellian Monsters From Chelsea/VBC: The VBC reviewers have been long-time fans of Kevin Hearne’s books.

Heather Long’s True Confessions: They’re Sexy and They Know It

Heather Long’s True Confessions: They’re Sexy and They Know It From VBC/ Chelsea: Heather Long’s Single Wicked Wolf released earlier this month.

She’s clearly busy writing lots of paranormal romance goodness, but we snagged Heather to tell us about why we love these supernatural alpha males. True confession...

5 Questions with Lynsay Sands (and a Giveaway!)

5 Questions with Lynsay Sands (and a Giveaway!) I hope everyone had a chance to read Amy’s review of About A Vampire. It’s the 22nd book in Lynsay Sands Argeneau series, and somehow Lynsay has kept surprising us this long. Better yet: About A Vampire works without having read the earlier books. Amy enjoyed the book and was surprised how what she thought would be a “never going to work” plot point totally worked. That kind of experience inspired more...
