Thanks for hosting me here today, BBB! Here’s an exclusive excerpt from Sinner’s Heart, the latest book in my HELLRAISERS paranormal historical romance series.
She did not anticipate that he would greet this news with enthusiasm, and she was right. He looked appalled.
“More of your madness.” He scowled, a look so fierce that, were she a living woman, she might be afraid.
Mmmmmm vampires… Immortal, super strength, sexy bod and sparkles in the sun? Hell yeah. Who wouldn’t want one of those? Now what if I told you the hunky Robert Pattinson is related to vampires? No wonder he played Edward so well. Turns out Ancestry.com (in Canada) discovered that Rob’s ancestors were from Transylvania, they even traced it back to Vlad the Impaler.
Can you believe it is the first of April already? Well believe it because that is one thing that is true today.

I think you can probably learn a lot about an author by the objects she keeps close at hand. As I sit looking around at the friendly clutter of my office, I have to wonder what it all reveals about me. For one thing, you’d immediately realize that I like stuffed animals and gargoyles. I have one shelf of dragons, another with Eeyore in several sizes and a pair of hedgehogs. One of the gargoyles is huge, one was knitted by a friend, and I have a bunch of others
“Before I was able to write and teach full time, I spent over a decade in a cube farm in corporate America, usually as a secretary, often as a temp. I had a few truly evil bosses… the one who called me up and cussed me out at eleven o’clock at night, for example, or the one who had me print out all of his daily emails (hundreds of them) because he “hated looking at the screen.” (more…)
It’s been in the works and planning stages for months. Bitten by Books is happy to be the first to announce that author Faith Hunter has signed a contact with Penguin/Roc for a yet-to-be-titled world-book guide set in the Jane Yellowrock universe.
The release date is tentatively set for late 2013, with Bitten by Books reviewer Carol Malcolm as co-writer of the world-book.
It will also contain a never-before-seen Jane Yellowrock novella.
I’ve done a lot of research for books, some requiring more than others. I learned a ton about three masted clipper ships and sailing for The Black Ship. I also learned all kinds of sailing lingo—did you know the phrase “beating a dead horse” is from sailing? So is “slush fund.” Oh, and on of the key ideas that the book revolves around is this one: “third time is a charm.” Only it wasn’t a lucky thing at all. It was terribly unlucky. So ironic given how the idea has mutated today into a good thing.
Hello, and thanks to Bitten By Books for hosting me today. I am Leigh Ellwood, and I write erotic romance for Phaze Books, Ravenous Romance, Samhain Publishing, and DLP Books. My latest release is the second installment of a shapeshifter series called Love is Bliss. The first work, Sheer Bliss, came out last year, and Pure Bliss is now available at AllRomance, Kindle, NOOK, Smashwords, and Kobo. I plan at least two more stories in this series before a print collection is published. In the meantime, I also hope to have the books on iTunes soon (though an audio version of Sheer Bliss is for sale there).
I’ve always been a little different. Not that it shows on the outside. On the outside I look just like everyone else, maybe more so. But I always knew that there was more out there than most people can see.
Can’t wait til December 14 to go down the Hobbit Hole with Bilbo, Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Thorin, Dwalkin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori, and Ori (whew, try to say that tens times fast)! From replica jewelry to legos to framed film montages we have many unique items to add to any Tolkien collection! Allow yourself to sit back and bid in your own hobbit hole because it is an Outbid auction, and that means comfort.
PLEASE NOTE: This contest is now closed! The winner is: Steph C. she’s been notified via email.
Gifts for Readers by Lynn Viehl
This week I’ve been out shopping for gifts for the readers among my friends and family. Of course the very best gift you can give a reader is a gift card to their favorite book store. But if you want something fun to go along with the gift card, here are some neat things I found at Barnes & Noble and Books-a-Million:
One of the questions I’ve been most asked since Fairyproof came out in September has been, “How do you come up with your stories?” For me, there is no easy answer. Ideas are simply there. Then, I came to realize that not everyone has the lines of normal and paranormal blurred like I do.
Please join me in welcoming Kimberly Llewellyn to Bitten by Books today. She is the best-selling author of Siren Call, a paranormal romance that’s all about mermaids and their tempting nature. What would you do if a seductive mermaid came up on land to steal your man? This is what happens to Serina James in Siren Call, as she discovers she has more in common with mermaids than she ever dreamed. But in discovering her aquatic destiny, will she lose Alex Waters, the man of her dreams?
“Listening to your inner voice can get you killed
Ethan James, Florida Bowman, and Jake Inala need organ transplants. When they receive the organs of a dead CIA agent, Dylan Black, they take on more than the task of completing the mission of deactivating bombs that threaten millions of lives. Kidnapped, their lives under threat, the memories stored in the CIA agent’s mind begin to awaken within each of them, except the one piece of information they are abducted for – the location of the bombs.”
I started creative writing in my early youth and by the time high school and college rolled around, it became clear that written communication was something I enjoyed. My decision to write a book was essentially the culmination of many years of doing different types of writing and wanting to continue challenging myself to do yet another form of writing I had never attempted.
There are two questions I get asked the most about Wicked Satyr Nights. The first is “Why satyrs?” and the second is “How in the world did you think to tie it in with the Jersey Devil?” The quick answer is mythology, whether it be classic mythology or urban legends, intrigue me. The broader answer: I love creepy things (except for spiders. I HATE spiders. And they know it, so they hunt me the way rednecks hunt deer.) (more…)
