Kelly Meding, author of Three Days To Dead, has just signed a deal with Dell to continue the Evy Stone series through book four. The series starter, Three Days To Dead, is "a thrilling urban fantasy full of desperate humans and menacing evil" with "impressive" world-building.

For atleast three more books, the recently reanimated Evy Stone will continue policing the Dregs, the non-humang population of her city. Medding shares that Evy will have "alot of growing up to do" as she works to keep the Dregs' existence a secret from the city's human population. Fans can expect to see familiar faces as well as what Meding calls "a lot of shifts in the power dynamics between the various races."

Gabi Stevens On The Rules And Regulations Of Magic

BY admin, JUNE 03, 2010 | PERMALINK
 

Author Gabi Stevens gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the rules and regulations of magic in The Wish List.

You might think that if you had magic, your power would be unlimited. You could do or achieve anything. But I tend to disagree. I think magic would have to come with rules and regulations. And limits. Things you can and cannot do, or wouldn’t want to.

Annie Nicholas Forces Her Characters To Question Human (And Not-So-Human) Nature

BY admin, JUNE 02, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Annie Nicholas doesn't hold her punches when it comes to putting her characters in life-threatening situations. But it's all for a greater good ...

 

Our destination was a mystery to me. As a rule, the bait never gets informed. Basically, it's a need-to-know relationship and a safeguard.
Good bait was hard to find. Can't exactly place an ad in the classifieds.

HELP WANTED: Fast, nimble, and intelligent young person to be used as vampire bait. High risk job but well compensated with pay and benefits. Travel the world, all expenses paid. Passport a must, clean record not necessary, no education requirements, and fighting skills a bonus. Contact Red at 555-1212. Humanity needs you.

I snorted at the thought. Getting groped, chased, and then enthralled by vamps were not my idea of benefits. However, when a plan worked and a vampire got dusted, it made up for all the other stuff.

The Cats Win The Day!

BY admin, MAY 21, 2010 | PERMALINK

We here at the RT offices are riffing on a Cat Fancy vibe this sunny Friday afternoon, as we selected winners of our White Cat contest, which ran in our May issue.

Winners will get a copy of Holly Black's new series starter, White Cat, out now from Margaret K. McElderry, and one grand prize winner will receive a signed advanced review copy from Black herself. And since Black adopted a -- you guessed it -- white cat while writing the book, and also because we are totally cat crazy, we got readers to send in pictures of their cats as contest entries. The only problem? It was basically impossible to pick our favorite cats as winners! We love all your cats! They're all adorable and cat-astic. Thanks for participating, everyone.

Runner up #5 Bandit (left) and Spot


Runner up #4 Pursey
(Pursey looks just like a baby version of our office cat, Dylan!)


Runner up #3 Matilda
