Regan Summers on Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow and Buffy [Guest Post & Giveaway]

Regan Summers on Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow and Buffy [Guest Post & Giveaway] There are so many good paranormal, fantasy, and sci fi shows on TV right now.

Vampire Book Club’s Best Books of 2014

Vampire Book Club’s Best Books of 2014 There were so many excellent books this year. Narrowing down my favorites alone was hard. Then I asked all the VBC reviewers to send me their top lists, too. (I’m pretty sure the ladies thought I was evil incarnate when I asked for just five favorite books for the year.) The best of the best rose quickly, though, as favorite titles appeared on our reviewers lists again and again. I cheered each time...
