BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, MAY 29, 2013 | PERMALINK

We are loving the digital revolution with opportunities to fill our e-shelves with affordable favorite reads. Every Thursday we bring you the Cheaper by the Dozen column listing the best weekly deals, and today we have some additional titles from a fan favorite author. Currently, historical romance author Candice Hern is offering many of her re-released titles for only $2.99 (or less!) each.

***

In The Best Intentions, Miles Prescott, the widowed Earl of Strickland, has no intention of re-marrying for love, no matter what matchmaking schemes his sister hatches. So when she announces her forthcoming visit to his country estate in the company of a young debutante and her widowed sister, he is quick to make his position clear. His new guests, however, are not at all what he expects. It is the widowed Lady Abingdon who is the society beauty, while Miss Hannah Fairbanks has far better things to do with her time. Architecture fascinates her, especially old architecture like that of the ancient Saxon church near the earls estate. And now the earl finds himself on the horns of a dilemma will he choose the suitable widow or follow his heart?

Amazon's Kindle Worlds Allows Fan Fiction Writers To (Legally) Sell Their Work

BY Cyndy Aleo, MAY 22, 2013 | PERMALINK

Amazon has some big news for fan fiction authors and readers alike this morning, announcing the launch of Kindle Worlds.

The e-commerce company's latest project is an online platform for fan fiction authors (writers who use characters or settings created by someone other then themselves) to publish — and sell — their creations. On Kindle Worlds, these new works will be licensed, with profits shared by the fan fiction authors and original creators.

The launch is specific to certain fandoms — Warner Brothers Television Group's Alloy Entertainment division's Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries, and Pretty Little Liars. While these franchises are all teen focused, Amazon anticipates adding more licenses "soon" so perhaps we will get adult centered worlds.

RT Booklovers Convention 2013: Authors And Readers Go Wild At The Samhain Safari Bash

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, MAY 21, 2013 | PERMALINK

Just when you thought it was safe to hang out with Samhain authors, they go and plan an event full of predators. This year at the RT Booklovers Convention, the publisher's evening party was safari themed. Fans and authors mingled through a jungle oasis as Samhain books and e-readers were given away. Yet despite the amazing prizes, great food and drinks, our favorite part of the night were the costumes! Dangerous cats roamed with zebras, a panther or two hung with exotic birds. And while there were no elephants to be found, the unique ensembles we did encounter left an impression. Here are a few of our favorites:

A 'Coalition' of cheetahs (and other assorted cats)


A 'Dazzle' of zebras


A 'Nest' of snakes


A 'Tower' of giraffes

Exclusive Cover Reveal: Spare Hearts by Dorothy F. Shaw and T.D. Hoffman

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, MAY 14, 2013 | PERMALINK

In the mood for something steamy? Then you won't want to miss this cover reveal that shows off husband and wife writing team T.D. Hoffman and Dorothy F. Shaw's upcoming release "Spare Hearts". But before you download this digital novella coming in August, get the inside scoop on this story which promises to bring the heat.

The title "Spare Hearts" refers to the hero's profession. Sterling Dey is a formal pro bowling champion who wants to get back into the game. So he has holed up at an out-of-the-way bowling alley in a small Texas town to practice. But Sterling is interrupted when he meets Candy Jameson, the alley's night manager. When a one-night stand turns into something more his priorities shift and he works double time to find a way to make her a permanent fixture in his life, no matter what.

We've been checking out this cover for a while now and we have to say that it really screams sexy. The scruffy looking hero has just the right amount of bad boy charm — and it doesn't hurt that he reminds us of the delicious Bradley Cooper! As for the heroine, let's just say that she isn't minding all the attention she's getting (and who would?).

Inside The E-Book Expo At The 2013 RT Booklovers Convention

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, MAY 02, 2013 | PERMALINK

When it comes to e-book publishing, there’s no denying that the format allows for all kinds of creative possibilities. Digital publishing allows authors to push boundaries and write between genres, creating truly unusual characters and scenarios, as well as change it up when it comes to story length. RT has long been a big supporter of digitally published and self-published books and we love the opportunity to spotlight these authors and their work with their very own bookfair.

At today's sixth annual E-Book, Indie Publisher And Graphic Novel Expo, we chatted with some of our favorite digital-first authors and asked them about what they feel like they can do in an e-book that they may not be able to in a print book. Here's what they had to say:
