Eve Silver And A Dinner With Alastor

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, SEPTEMBER 01, 2010 | PERMALINK

The second hero in author Eve Silver's Otherkin series is Alastor Krayl, a soul reaper on a mission. But even the best laid plans for revenge can be waylaid the need for romance. Get a behind the scenes glimpse of how Silver's Alastor treats his ladylove in this evening on the town ... 

Last month, I talked about dinner with Dagan, the dark and dangerous hero of Sins Of The Heart.

Today, to celebrate the release of Sins Of The Soul, Alastor Krayl—the suit-clad, über-controlled, incredibly sexy hero of the story—is taking Naphré Kurata—the kick butt heroine—to dinner. He makes a reservation at what is reputed to be the oldest restaurant in London: Rules in Maiden Lane. Which is interesting on a few levels.

Rachel Caine: I believe I summed it all up in a very proper, authorial way when I blurted "No way!" Followed by fainting.

RT: Where did you go to college? Does it feel good to make it into the classroom of the most distinguished University in America?

Jennifer Rardin Is Bringing Book Club Monsters To Life!

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, AUGUST 25, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Jennifer Rardin first hit the paranormal scene in October 2007 with her urban fantasy novel Once Bitten, Twice Shy. And now, after six novels with her original heroine, Jaz Parks, Rardin has left behind CIA operatives for ordinary folks  or as ordinary as you can get in an urban fantasy tale. Her newest group of heroes are members of a book club who must band together to fight the monsters that are popping out of their favorite works of fiction. The author is hard at work on her new trilogy, but took a moment to share the details of this new project with us.

RT BOOK REVIEWS: What inspired you to send members of a book club, normally not a group of people many of us think of as being particularly active, into action fighting demons?

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!

For Bond With Me, my September 2010 Dorchester e-book release, I chose to make my hero a fallen angel. I set my book in Moscow of the near-future because that Russian city has always been for me a dark, exotic and slightly otherworldly place—and because the Slavic take on the Fall is equally dark and compelling.

Molly Harper: Paranormal vs. Mainstream

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, AUGUST 12, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Molly Harper has genre-jumped from paranormal to mainstream fiction. Harper discusses the experience of changing genres, offers a side-by-side comparison of her latest novels and shares an excerpt of And One Last Thing... as she petitions RT readers for "dual-genre citizenship".

After my three-book vampire librarian series, people were surprised that my fourth book would be published in July with nary a supernatural creature in sight. And One Last Thing ... is the story of Lacey Terwilliger, who uses her husband’s company mailing list to send a mass e-mail to everyone they know, detailing the special brand of “administrative support” Mike’s assistant provides. Faster than you can say, “instant Snopes article,” Lacey is exiled from her tiny hometown in the wake of her widely forwarded, anti-adultery missive.
