Guest Post: Faith Hunter on Plant People + Circle of the Moon Excerpt & Giveaway Note from VBC: We’re delighted to host the charming Faith Hunter on today’s blog. We love her Jane Yellowrock and Soulwood novels and are incredibly excited for the release of Circle of the Moon earlier this week. Enough of us.

And now with the first major story arc closing (and, yes, there’s another arc coming for books four, five, and six), I’m even more in love. If you like your books gritty, like your...

Win It Wednesday: Signed, Advanced Copy of Lost Souls by Chelsea Mueller

Win It Wednesday: Signed, Advanced Copy of Lost Souls by Chelsea Mueller The third book in Chelsea Mueller’s Soul Charmer series comes out in a month. A month, y’all. That’s my book. I always try to be upfront about this part. 🙂 Lost Souls brings a big punch of soul magic and even bigger changes at the Soul Charmer’s emporium. It’s always weird talking about your own books, though, so I’ll tell you that Kelly from Reading the Paranormal says: “Gem City is dangerous and deadly...

Must-Read Urban Fantasy Series that Bring the Sexy

Must-Read Urban Fantasy Series that Bring the Sexy Urban fantasy can be aligned with the old-school police procedural style—think Harry Dresden, early Anita Blake books, The Hollows—solving supernatural crimes. Over time the genre has expanded, and while I still love a good gumshoe urban fantasy, as the genre has grown it’s pulled in the best from other worlds. It’s slipped to the crime end, it’s sucked in small-town mysteries (hey, Charlaine Harris!),...
