We are seriously digging the old school Public Service Announcement-themed videos the author is running for the book's September 7th release. You can check them out below:
We spotlighted author Erin Kellison in the beginning of summer, when she was a debut author with her first novel Shadow Bound. At that time, she shared her journey to publication (read it here). Barely three months later, her second novel, Shadow Fall, is on shelves and she's hard at work on her newest tale. So we caught up with Kellison to find out what life as a new author is really like.
You can learn more about this music video and several other novels that are incorporating a musical element in the article "Music of the Heart" in the October issue of RT BOOK REVIEWS.
Diver's newest release Revamped, the second in her Young Adult Vamped series was released yesterday, while earlier this week Lang's Historical Urban Fantasy Lady Lazarus hit bookstores.
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 ...
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.
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?
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?
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.
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.
