I see Michelle has gotten a big start on the morning! (Hey, Michelle!)
Unlike many of the incredible, prolific authors who are a part of outoftheblogosphere, I have only two paranormal books to offer as end-of-the-day prizes (I'll get into giveaway specifics in a second.). But do not be sad for me, for I have more coming out beginning in February, 2007. That's when my Vampire Babylon series hits the shelves, and the first book, NIGHT RISING, will be followed by two more soon after that: MIDNIGHT REIGN and BREAK OF DAWN. I don't have release dates yet for those last two, but I'll be keeping readers up to date on my Vampire Babylon site (www.vampirebabylon.com) and regular site (www.crystal-green.com).
Clearly, Vampire Babylon is a "vampire novel," and it's in the same action/adventure Bombshell vein as THE HUNTRESS (my first vamp story). However, this time out, this tale was so big that I needed to tell it in three books. That's why the fantasy imprint Ace Trade is publishing it. And VB differs from THE HUNTRESS in tone: it's being called a "mystery/noir/fantasy" and I love that "noir" description most of all. Here's the back cover blurb:
Welcome to Hollywood—after dark…
Stuntwoman Dawn Madison is a girl with a lot of attitude—and a lot of issues, mostly about living up to the legacy of her mother, a world famous movie star/sex symbol, whose untimely death left Dawn to be raised by her dad Frank, nobody’s notion of single-father-of-the-year. Now that she’s all grown up, she and Frank aren’t on the best of terms, to say the least.
Still, he is her dad, and when he vanishes while investigating the bizarre sighting—caught on film—of a supposedly long-dead child star, she comes home to Tinseltown to join the search for him. Working with his colleagues—a psychic short in stature but big in dreams of stardom, a beautiful Latina techno-geek, and the P. I. firm’s never-seen boss—she discovers an erotic and bloody underground society made up of creatures she thought existed only on the screen.
They are devious. They are deadly. And some of them are dangerously attractive…
I'm going to come back to this party later to see if Michelle found the booze, and I'll be checking in with any comments. You can post basic comments, questions, OR you can tell me your favorite scary movie (I just guest blogged at The Midnight Hour, and that was the subject!). At the end of the day, I'll be choosing two random winners from any of my posts today. One prize is going to be a signed copy of THE HUNTRESS. The other prize will be a signed copy of TWICE BITTEN, which is a trade reprint of THE HUNTRESS.
See you later!
