Anne Marsh And The Fallen Angels - With Giveaway!

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, AUGUST 23, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Anne Marsh kicks off her blog tour for Bond With Me by sharing her favorite fallen angels and how she knew that Bond With Me would have to be set in Moscow. The author will be by all day to answer any comments left on this blog entry and don't miss the GIVEAWAY at the end of this post!

Sandra Hill On The Heat (And History) Of Honey

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, AUGUST 20, 2010 | PERMALINK

Sandra Hill stops by to discuss the way that honey plays a part in her latest novel, The Viking Takes A Knight. The author chats about the two very different ways her characters use honey and shares some facts about the history of honey use throughout the years. And don't miss the steamy EXCERPT of The Viking Takes A Knight at the end of this blog post.

Although I have used medieval beekeeping in previous historicals, along with the use of honey for sweetening, mead, and candles, even as a little something extra in lovemaking, I have never gone as far as I do in my September release, The Viking Takes A Knight.

5.  A nice Bruce Patman? This we gotta see.

4.  We must know: did the Droids ever make it big?

Tera Lynn Childs Is Taking A Stand Against Censorship - And You Can Too!

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, AUGUST 18, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Tera Lynn Childs has withdrawn from 2011 Teen Lit Fest in Humble, Texas. The author shares her views on the censorship that prompted her decision and how readers can get involved.

When I was asked to participate in the 2011 Humble ISD Teen Lit Fest in Humble, Texas, I was thrilled. Not only would I get to meet lots of enthusiastic teen readers, but I would get to present with authors Melissa de la Cruz, Matt de la Pena, Pete Hautman and Ellen Hopkins. Writing is a solitary pursuit, so it’s always a treat to meet others of my kind.

Fast forward to earlier this month. I received a disturbing email from Ellen. She had been “uninvited” from the festival by Superintendent Guy Sconzo after “several” parents and one librarian voiced concern about the objectionable content of her books. A tireless activist against censorship of any kind, Ellen further explained that she was organizing a reader protest and boycott of the event.
