Win It Wednesday: Good Vampires Go to Heaven by Sandra Hill

Win It Wednesday: Good Vampires Go to Heaven by Sandra Hill It’s been a few weeks since we had a tasty paranormal romance giveaway at VBC. Win It Wednesday is the right way to fix that. Today I’m giving away Sandra Hill’s Good Vampires Go to Heaven. It’s the eighth book in her Deadly Angels series, which brings together vampires and angels—legit vangels—and the sexy, sexy in these books. Good Vampires has the bonus of a demon trying to...

Let’s Talk Reader Conventions

Let’s Talk Reader Conventions I absolutely love going to reader conventions. The chance to interact in person with people who one-click, auto-buy, and read voraciously in the same genres I do is a special thrill. The ability to meet my favorite authors, and tell them why their books meant so much? Double win. The VBC crew is spread throughout North America and England. We could be hitting up smaller, niche events all over. This is...

Win It Wednesday: ARC of Borrowed Souls by Chelsea Mueller Borrowed Souls isn’t set to release until May 2, but we have a shiny, hot-off-the-presses advanced reading copy (ARC) for one lucky person. In fact, it’s so special that it’ll also be signed. Double win, right? For those of you who haven’t heard me talk about it, Borrowed Souls is a gritty urban fantasy with a heroine who gets blackmailed into acting as a repo woman for people who...

Win It Wednesday: Frostblood by Elly Blake

Win It Wednesday: Frostblood by Elly Blake This week we’re going YA fantasy for our Win It Wednesday pick. Frostblood by Elly Blake released on Jan. 10, and VBC’s Margaret immediately jumped to read it. …and not just because of that pretty cover. You can check her full review, but she said that it’s a fast read, which is a rare thing in a genre “full of epic tomes.” She’s not wrong. Plus, there’s a...

Win It Wednesday: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

Win It Wednesday: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris I’ve been a fan of Charlaine Harris’s novels since the first page of Dead Until Dark. Her Midnight, Texas series brings that same rural charm to Texas with healthy doses of character arcs, supernatural, and mystery. I’ve recommended this series before, and will probably keep doing so until every one of you reads it. (It’s how fangirls roll, right?) As I said in my review...

Win It Wednesday: Alice by Christina Henry

Win It Wednesday: Alice by Christina Henry The VBC team likes a good fairy tale retelling, but what we like even more is when they go totally fresh and plenty dark. Naturally, we were big into Christina Henry’s Alice. The sequel Lost Boy made our 2017 Most Anticipated List for a reason. Late VBC reviewer Amanda adored this book, and recommended it to practically ever person she met. Here’s a rather convincing snippet from her review of...
