Karen Mahoney Guest Post & Giveaway: Donna’s Letter to Xan

Karen Mahoney Guest Post & Giveaway: Donna’s Letter to Xan I’m a big fan of Karen Mahoney’s writing.

The third book in the Iron Witch trilogy The Stone Demon releases today. It is excellent (and Donna wears a really gorgeous dress at one point, which made me wish...

Rinda Elliott Guest Post & Giveaway: Myth and Journey

Cynthia Eden Guest Post & Giveaway: Az’s love letter to Jade I finally was able to meet Cynthia Eden last weekend at the Olde City, New Blood mini-convention. She’s delightful, and her love for paranormal romance—especially the alpha nature that is often inherent with vampires—was obvious. If you haven’t tried her The Fallen series yet (vampires and fallen angels), I suggest it. Read my review of Angel of Darkness for possible convincing. Or, better...

Nina Berry Guest Post & Giveaway: Caleb’s Letter to Dez

Nina Berry Guest Post & Giveaway: Caleb’s Letter to Dez I love teen romance novels. The do-or-die of it all. And the kissing, which we’ve probably talked about here at VBC more than we should have. Today we have Nina Berry on the blog, author of the YA romance Othermoon. She shares Caleb’s love letter to Dez for Character Love Letters and, trust me, you’ll enjoy hearing the guy admit his love for her. As an added bonus, we have a copy of Othermoon to...

Chloe Neill Guest Post & Giveaway: Jeff’s love letter to Fallon

Chloe Neill Guest Post & Giveaway: Jeff’s love letter to Fallon Any fan of Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires series knows there’s more to it than just Merit and Ethan. The full cast of characters make the world come alive. In recent novels we’ve seen Jeff Christopher, shifter and computer whiz, fall for the alpha’s sister Fallon. He may still crush on Merit, but his heart belongs to Fallon. While we’re all antsy for tomorrow’s...

My Favorite Monster with Allison Pang

My Favorite Monster with Allison Pang From Chelsea/VBC: This is the third in a series of spook-tacular posts leading up to Halloween. I’ve invited a few friends to fill us in on their favorite monsters. Today author Allison Pang talks about her love of werewolf movies. If you haven’t already, you should check out her Abby Sinclair novels. Love them. First book is A Brush of Darkness. Although I don’t consider myself a horror fan,...
