Exclusive Excerpt: Burn With Me By R.G. Alexander

BY , AUGUST 27, 2013 | PERMALINK

The summer days are dwindling and the kids are heading back to school. Doesn't that just put you in the mood to cozy up to a London-set, paranormal romance? Well, friends, we at RT are here for you. Today we've got an exclusive excerpt of R.G. Alexander's Burn with Me, out today from Samhain, which reviewer Jaime Giraldi calls, "an awesome start to a series."

Trilogy starter Burn with Me stars Aziza, a heroine living on borrowed time. Believing herself cursed, her demise on its way, Aziza begins hallucinating — or is she? — during a trip to London. Little does she know what fate has in store for her ...

Death was following her.

She’d left her coat in the pub, she thought absently, wrapping her arms around herself as the air chilled her. As if she might split apart if she didn’t. She made her way around the men, most of whom had taken their hats off or bowed their heads in a sad, habitual form of respect at the view in front of them. Aziza reached the front of the circle of people and looked down.

Exclusive Excerpt: Lauren Layne on the Perfect First Kiss

BY Elissa Petruzzi, AUGUST 22, 2013 | PERMALINK

We at RT love a great contemporary romance — especially if there are a few laughs thrown in with all that angst. So our interest was piqued by Lauren Layne, whose funny, sexy Stiletto series debuts next week with After the Kiss. Set in NYC at glamorous Stiletto magazine, the series follows three heroines who write for the periodical's Love & Romance section, though their own romantic lives are disasters. (Let it be known that most of us working at the glamorous, Brooklyn-based RT are quite happily paired off, and we're happy to give you advice on your love life anytime, no problemo.) 

Curious to hear more about Julie Greene, Stiletto editor, who's about to take on far more than she can handle in one Mitchell Forbes? Then check out this exclusive excerpt we cajoled Loveswept to let us post here, just for you, all about the perfect first kiss!

Julie had written the book on first kisses.

Well okay, technically not a book. But she definitely had no fewer than four different articles in her portfolio that outlined the nuances and categories of the first kiss.

In the bad category:

What To Look For When Choosing An E-Publisher

BY , AUGUST 13, 2013 | PERMALINK

While e-books have come a long way, oftentimes going digital can still feel like the Wild West of publishing. With so many digital publishers accepting unsolicited manuscripts, how can an author know what to look for and what to avoid? We asked author KT Grant, who has a great deal of experience with various e-publishers, to share her tips for new and established authors when it comes to choosing the perfect digital press.

After three years and 25 books with various e-publishers, there are many things I now know that I wished I'd been aware of when I first signed a publishing contract. As a new author searching for the right e-publisher, there are some important things you should be aware of before you sign on the dotted line. You want to pick an e-publisher who will treat you, and your book, with professionalism and respect. Hopefully some of these tips will help new authors begin a long and successful writing career.

Cover Chat: Corroded By Karina Cooper

BY Elisa Verna, JULY 26, 2013 | PERMALINK

Karina Cooper revealed the cover for the third novel in her awesome St. Croix Chronicles series, Corroded, yesterday, and I have to say with the series' transition from Avon to Carina, I was a little worried about what would happen to the gorgeous Cherry covers. All my worries about the cover art floated away when I saw it, because look at it! I actually think I like this cover slightly more than the previous covers. Cherry looks her age — a young 20-something, but not naive, lady — and the dark London alley behind her is exactly how I imagine London Below would look. This may be my favorite Cherry cover yet!
