Amanda Bonilla Guest Post & Giveaway: Deleted Scene from Vengeance Borne

Amanda Bonilla Guest Post & Giveaway: Deleted Scene from Vengeance Borne Thanks so much to Chelsea and the crew from Vampire Book Club for having me as a guest today! XOXO I don’t often delete scenes from books I’m working on. I usually have to go in and add stuff rather than take away, but when I do delete a scene I like to hold on to it. This one was scrapped in edits, but I saved it, though, and I thought I’d give you all a peek. A Deleted Scene from Vengeance...

Exclusive Cover Reveal: Vengeance Borne by Amanda Bonilla

Exclusive Cover Reveal: Vengeance Borne by Amanda Bonilla Amanda Bonilla brings the kickass heroines. I loved her Shaede Assassin series (read reviews of Shaedes of Grey and Blood Before Sunrise). Now she’s on to a new urban fantasy series, and I’m pretty damn excited about it. The first book of her Sentry of Evil (!) series is called Vengeance Borne, and she was kind enough to give VBC dibs on revealing the cover art and back cover copy. Vengeance...

Deleted Scene from Amanda Bonilla’s Crave The Darkness & Giveaway

Deleted Scene from Amanda Bonilla’s Crave The Darkness & Giveaway One of the most important elements in the Shaede Assassin series (for me, anyway) are the flash back scenes. I think it helps to give the reader a more rounded story and better insight to Darian’s character when you can see what events have molded her present. I wrote a scene from Darian’s past that didn’t make it into Crave the Darkness (out today), and though it’s an unhappy memory, it was one...

Amanda Bonilla Guest Post & Giveaway: Throwing books and character frustration

Amanda Bonilla Guest Post & Giveaway: Throwing books and character frustration Thanks so much to Chelsea and Vampire Book Club for hosting me today! This is one of my favorite blogs to visit and Chelsea, you rock!!! We’ve all had that moment. We lower the book from our line of vision, pull back our arm, and prepare to launch the paperback into the next room. Or yard. Or lake/ocean/body of water. The MC is too stupid to live! WHY did she do that?!? How could she SAY that?!? What was...

Auction: Signed books from Amanda Bonilla and character named after you! [Books Fighting Cancer]

Auction: Signed books from Amanda Bonilla and character named after you! [Books Fighting Cancer] I loved reading Amanda Bonilla’s debut Shaedes of Gray. It was the first book I’d ever seen actually labeled as “urban fantasy romance.” If you love the crossover books – plenty of fighting and plenty of loving – then you need to get in on this. Amanda has donated signed copies of both Shaedes of Gray and the coming-out-next-month sequel Blood Before Sunrise, as well as writing the highest...
