Author Interview & Giveaway – Veronica Wolff

Author Interview & Giveaway – Veronica Wolff Today I have the honor of bringing to you author Veronica Wolff. Veronica is an award-winning, bestselling author with a soft spot for kilts, mountains, beaches, and vampires. Not necessarily at the same time. She has lived everywhere from Texas, to Hawaii, to India, before finally settling in Northern California, where she lives with her husband, two kids, one insane rescue dog, one angelic rescue dog, the gentlest cat ever, and a snake whose days are numbered. Please help me welcome Veronica toThat’s What I’m Talking About, and read further for a GIVEAWAY of Veronica’s new book! Twimom: Veronica, welcome and thank you for stopping by. Veronica: Hi, Twimom! From one Twilight-Mama to another, thanks so much for having me! Twimom: *high fives* Your new book, Isle of Night is a Young Adult “vampire” series, with a few twists on the standard mythology. Can you tell us more about the setting for the series? Will we learn more about the vampires as the series progresses? Veronica: Isle of Night is set on a bleak island in the middle of the North Sea that’s populated by a coven of ancient vampires. There, they recruit and train girls to become Watchers, an elite group acting as agents, emissaries, and sometimes assassins for the vampires. Training is intense, and failure means death. As the series progresses, you’ll learn more about the vampires, their motivation, and their world. Twimom: How many books do you foresee in this series?  Will they all be just about Drew or will they be told through other characters? Veronica: Honestly, I could see writing a dozen of these…I’m loving it so much! I don’t want to make any proclamations or promises, but for now I think they’ll all be in Drew’s point of view. Twimom: You also write a Highlander series (yummy!) Will you please share with us a little about that series? Veronica: Thanks! I do love me a man in a kilt. I have two Highlands series. The first is a time travel series where each heroine goes back in time and meets (and falls in love with!) a famous hero from Scottish history. My second series is purely historical—the Clan MacAlpin books are centered around a fictional family of orphans in seventeenth-century Scotland. Picture Party of Five in the Highlands. Twimom: *picturing Matthew Fox and Scott Wolf in kilts and smiling*  What are the challenges of writing a YA series versus a more traditional romance (adult)...

Spider’s Revenge ARC Giveaway

Spider’s Revenge ARC Giveaway When I was at Author’s After Dark this past August, I had the privilege of meeting the very talented and insanely sweet, Jennifer Estep. At the public book signing, she gave me a copy of her upcoming ELEMENTAL ASSASSIN SERIES fifth release, Spider’s Revenge (September 27, 2011; Pocket Books). Unfortunately, I haven’t read this amazing series yet (it’s on the TBR pile!), and I cannot due justice to Ms. Estep’s work by reading the 5th book without the knowledge of the first four. So this is where one of my readers gets lucky!! I am going to giveaway the ARC of Spider’s Revenge to one lucky person. HOWEVER, there is a catch… since this is an ARC, we owe it to Ms. Estep to publish a review. Therefore, if you win this book, you will need to do a guest review for That’s What I’m Talking About.  Don’t let that scare you – the review can be as short or long as you like. I just ask for some details about what you liked/didn’t like and a rating. I’ll format it and post it to my blog. Your review will be featured on September 28, 2011.   ABOUT THE BOOK: Old habits die hard. And I plan on mur­der­ing some­one before the night is through.  Killing used to be my reg­u­lar gig, after all. Gin Blanco, aka the Spi­der, assassin-for-hire. And I was very good at it. Now, I’m ready to make the one hit that truly mat­ters: Mab Mon­roe, the dan­ger­ous Fire ele­men­tal who mur­dered my fam­ily when I was thir­teen.  Oh, I don’t think the mis­sion will be easy, but turns out it’s a bit more prob­lem­atic than expected. The bitch knows I’m com­ing for her. So now I’m up against the army of lethal bounty hunters she hired to track me down. She also put a price on my baby sister’s head. Keep­ing Bria safe is my first pri­or­ity. Tak­ing Mab out is a close sec­ond.  Good thing I’ve got my pow­er­ful Stone and Ice magic — and my irre­sistible lover Owen Grayson — to watch my back. This bat­tle has been years in the mak­ing, and there’s a chance I won’t sur­vive. But if I’m going down, then Mab’s com­ing with me…no mat­ter what I have to do to make that happen. In order to get the review posted on time, I am holding a SHORT contest, and I will priority mail the book to the winner ASAP....

ARC Review & Giveaway: Downpour

ARC Review & Giveaway: Downpour Downpour Author: Kat Richardson  Release Date: August 2, 2011 Publisher: Roc The Greywalker Novels #6 ISBN: #978-0451463982 Genre: Urban Fantasy Format(s): Hardcover (368 pgs), e-book Book Source: Publisher About the book:      After being shot in the back and dying—again—Harper’s recovery has been hard. She’s lost a great many of the powers she’d acquired since first becoming a Greywalker, and Harper knows that if she dies again, she won’t be coming back.      Her only respite from the chaos is her work. But while conducting a pre-trial investigation in the Olympic Peninsula, she witnesses the ghostly echo of a fatal car accident for which there are no records. Worse still, the victim of the wreck insists he was actually murdered, and that the nearby mountain resort—called “Blood Lake” by locals—is to blame.      The picturesque area is as unlikely a haven for conspiracy and malignant magic as Harper’s ever seen. But she soon learns that the icy waters of the lake hide a terrible power, and a host of hellish beings. And both are held under the thrall of sinister mages who will use the darkest of arts to achieve their fiendish ends… What G & U are talking about:      Downpour is the sixth book in the Greywalker Novels.  Let us first say that Una has not read any of the previous books, however, Gikany was able to read the first book in the series.  Even though there are references to previous experiences and moments, we feel it isn’t necessary to read the first five books to enjoy this one.  However, to get the full impact of the series, we would recommend starting from the beginning.      Downpour starts off with our heroine, Harper Blaine, doing some less than fabulous legwork for a pretrial hearing.  During the course of this, she runs across some strange creatures and power lines in the Grey. The Grey is an alternate, paranormal dimension that Harper can experience and witness ever since she died (in a previous novel). These events cause her to take a deeper look into her surroundings, which leads her to a ghost and a murder mystery.  What could be classified as a straight-laced detective drama/mystery is made more suspenseful and engaging with the element of the paranormal.  It creates a thoroughly grounded but surreal urban fantasy.      Gikany and Una enjoyed Downpour.  The mythology is very interesting and the way the paranormal is...
