Rachel Caine Is Going To Harvard

BY , AUGUST 30, 2010 | PERMALINK

THIS JUST IN: Paranormal author Rachel Caine's Glass Houses, from the Morganville Vampire series, is now a must-read at Harvard University. The first book in Caine's Young Adult series has just been added to the university's course "The Vampire in Literature and Film."  We tracked down Rachel Caine to see what she had to say about this collegiate turn of events.

RT BOOK REVIEWS:  Any words on your first reaction when you heard that you were required reading at Harvard?

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 , 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 , 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 , 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.

It's Day Two On The Road For Jeaniene Frost

BY , AUGUST 04, 2010 | PERMALINK

It’s Jeaniene Frost’s second day of her book tour by train. She brings us an update from her stop in Charleston, S.C. and lets readers know where they can find her next!

Yesterday I was at the Waldenbooks at Charleston, S.C. It was such a neat area, with horse and buggy tour rides going up and down the streets, tons of shops, and enough pamphlets for ghost tours of reportedly haunted locales that it was all I could do not to take a late one after the signing. But, I knew I had an early train to catch, so I was a Good Little Author and went back to my hotel room instead of prowling the Charleston streets in an evening tour group.

Jeaniene Frost Reports From The Road

BY , AUGUST 02, 2010 | PERMALINK

Paranormal romance author Jeaniene Frost is taking the South by storm, well, by train, on her book tour for Eternal Kiss Of Darkness. The author reports from the rails about what she has been seeing and where fans can find her next!

Yesterday was my first trip to Savannah. I didn't have time to sight-see, but I caught enough glimpses out of the back of cabs that I hope to return soon ... It's a good thing I didn't even attempt to visit the famous Bonaventure cemetery, or I might have spent the majority of last night taking pictures instead of sleeping!

In addition to the wonderful sights I glimpsed of the city, the people were also lovely. My signing yesterday at the Books-A-Million store was so much fun. For starters, the staff couldn't have been nicer, and when I arrived at the store, even though I was a little early, there were already some readers waiting for me. Let me tell you, that was a heart-warming sight for me! :) Two of them had driven all the way from Atlanta, which was quite humbling.
