Vote for the October group read

Vote for the October group read It’s that time again. As much fun as we had with Spider’s Bite, it’s time to vote for next month’s read. After putting the word out on Twitter and Facebook, I narrowed the list down to six recommendations — OK, I put Blood Rights in there because I want to talk more about it. I have no shame. If you’re not familiar with the books, blurbs and links for more info, etc....

August Group Read: Ill Wind by Rachel Caine

August Group Read: Ill Wind by Rachel Caine This month’s poll was very close, but Rachel Caine’s Ill Wind edged out Jeannie Holmes’ Blood Law by three votes. That means August is going to be all about the elemental power, the secretive djinn and urban fantasy goodness that comes with the first Weather Warden novel. While this one is an urban fantasy, our paranormal romance readers will love the chemistry between Joanne and David....

Review: Ill Wind by Rachel Caine (Weather Warden #1)

Review: Ill Wind by Rachel Caine (Weather Warden #1) I made a deal with Kristin from My Bookish Ways: I’d start one of her favorite series, if she’d start one of mine. So, in exchange for her learning to “stay to the light” with Karen Marie Moning’s Darkfever, I dived into Rachel Caine’s Weather Warden books. Ill Wind (Weather Warden #1) Rachel Caine Published: 2003 (Penguin) Purchase at: Book Depository, B&N or Amazon...

Waiting on Wednesday: Ghost Town (Morganville Vampires #9) by Rachel Caine

I like Rachel Caine’s world-building and the way she loves to make things very difficult for her characters. That isn’t going to stop with the ninth book in her Morganville Vampires series Ghost Town. When I talked with Caine a few weeks ago she told me how excited she was for this release. She’s been releasing books for nearly 20 years, but this is her first hardcover. Pretty awesome....

Heather Brewer Book Signing & GIVEAWAY

Heather Brewer Book Signing & GIVEAWAY Last night the entertaining Heather Brewer stopped in at my local Borders store for a book signing. This last Tuesday the final book in her Chronicles of Vladimir Tod series, Twelfth Grade Kills, was released. Her teen series does great things by merging, as she put it, the things she knows (how it feels to be bullied and vampires). It was great to see her behind that podium. Coming from a small town (her...
