Vampire World Building Favorites: Hamilton, Mead, Harris & Frost

Vampire World Building Favorites: Hamilton, Mead, Harris & Frost If you’re a regular reader here, you know I value strong world building in novels. I’m more likely to give a book a rare 5-star rating if the mythology for the world feels real.

Poll: Favorite ADULT novel love interest (Just start swooning now)

Poll: Favorite ADULT novel love interest (Just start swooning now) Well, damn. To say you guys liked the YA love interest poll would be a complete understatement (you can vote here).
