Author Interview with Nalini Singh + Giveaway (INTL)

Good morning, friends! I have something super duper (yeah I said duper) exciting on the blog today. My friends all know that I am a huge Nalini Singh fan. Tomorrow is the release date for her newest book, Archangel’s Storm. It’s the fifth book in the awesome Guild Hunter series is about Jason, super spy master and Angel with shadow wings.

Degrees of Wrong Blog Tour + Giveaway

Degrees of Wrong Blog Tour + Giveaway

We’re on the Degrees of Wrong Tour today! This is the adult romance novel from writer Anna Scarlett (aka Anna Banks). Today I am giving you my dream cast. Here goes! Dr. Elyse Morgan – I’d like to suggest Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch, Bright Star). I think Abbie would be great as our feisty, chocolate loving heroine. Capt. Nicoli Marek – Joe Mangianello would be perfect as the yummy and chronically shirtless Nicoli. Seriously he should be shirtless all the time. Dr. Folsom – Sela Ward would be excellent as Elyse’s mentor and family friend. Admiral Judd – I have loved… Read more »

The time I met Nalini Singh and Nora Roberts + Giveaway

The time I met Nalini Singh and Nora Roberts + Giveaway

Hola, friends! It’s taken me a while but I finally had some time to write up my recap of the RWA 2012 Literacy Autographing Session that took place a couple of weeks ago. RWA is Romance Writers of America and, this year, their conference was held in Anaheim, CA. Every year at the conference they hold a massive autographing session (free to the public) where hundreds or romance authors autograph books with the proceeds going to a literacy organization. This year, the session made over $50,000! Wow, that is a pretty crazy number for 3 hours of autographs. Luckily I… Read more »

Charlaine Harris Starter Set – Birthday Month Giveaway (INTL ends 7/31)

Hey everyone! Alethea here. I’m kind of hijacking the blog (in a good way) while Thuy is on vacation and enjoying her totally adorable new niece. I’m doing some giveaways over at RNSL so I thought I’d do some over here, too! July is my birth month! So to share the love, I will be sending you presents. You! Yes, you. That is, if you’re lucky enough. My birthday is 7/11. That’s pretty lucky. Now, don’t try to stake me–I’m not as big a Charlaine Harris fan as all you True Blood folks are. (Blame Anna Paquin, I can’t watch… Read more »

Demonic – Giveaway (Kindle)

Demonic – Giveaway (Kindle)

Garon Cockrell is the Pop Culture Beast.  He has also penned a book called Demonic and Other Tales (doorQ.com publishing, 2011). I know it’s not our usual fare, but if you love horror, it’s a must-read! I was trying to wait until an appropriately scary time, like mid-October, to get people in the freaking-out mood. But let’s face it, if Cabin in the Woods can come out at Easter, you can have some horror in the middle of May.  This collection of scream-worthy short stories includes “Demonic,” “Eggs,” “Home Alone,” “What’s Your Pleasure?,” “The Strange Tale of Griffin Shard,” “Looking Glass,”… Read more »
