Celebrating… Meljean Brook

Celebrating… Meljean Brook Welcome to the Fourth and final week of my Month of Celebrating!   Today I want to tell you about another one of my favorite authors: Meljean Brook.  I don’t even know where to start other than to say Meljean ROCKS and you really need to read her stuff!  Her Guardian Series includes one of my ALL TIME favorite books: Demon Moon. The main couple, Savi and Colin, make my heart melt. The book is that perfect mixture of romance, emotional upheaval, action, adventure… And the great thing is – every book in the Guardian series is just as wonderful. But wait… that’s not all! Meljean’s new steampunk-romance series is amazing. The first...

Year in Review – 2010

Year in Review – 2010 Welcome to the end of another year. This is my first year blogging, and it was interesting to see how my book list panned out. I read fewer books in 2010 than 2009, but that is understandable now that I’m writing reviews, completing author interviews, blog hopping and chatting with my gals (and guys) and Twitter.  I really enjoyed blogging and discussing books with all of you. I hope you have enjoyed our time together as well! I’ve listed some of my highlights and stats from 2010 below.  How did 2010 go for you? What were your favorite reads during the year? Thank you all for stopping by and...

Cover Love

Cover Love LOOK WHAT JUST CAME IN… Meljean Brook has released the cover for her 7th GUARDIAN SERIES book (and the 11th story in the series)… I give you Demon Marked.   Here is a little bit about the story (taken from Meljean’s website): Recently escaped from a mental hospital where she spent the past two years, Ash is searching for answers, trying to discover who she is…and what she’s become. Tattoos mark her skin – which is sometimes crimson. Her eyes glow when she’s angry. And icy fear is a constant companion, along with a desperation she doesn’t understand, and a torturous pain that she can barely remember. Fueled by vague memories...

Technology & Science of the Victorian Times – Guest Post by Meljean Brook

Technology & Science of the Victorian Times – Guest Post by Meljean Brook Welcome to the final day of THE IRON DUKE WEEK here at That’s What I’m Talking About.  Today I want to welcome back author, Meljean Brook, who is here to discuss some of the research she completed while writing the Iron Seas series.  So without further delay… Welcome Meljean… Thank you, Jen. One of the best parts of writing the Iron Seas series is the research. From nanotechnology to electromagnetic pulse weapons, from steam engines to automatons—it’s all in there…but it all has to be twisted to fit my world. This is the hard part for me. I have an excellent imagination, but I also want all of the technology...

Author Interview – Meljean Brook

Author Interview – Meljean Brook Today I have the honor of bringing to you one of my favorite authors, Meljean Brook.  Meljean was raised in the middle of the woods, and hid under her blankets at night with fairy tales, comic books, and romances. She left the forest and went on a misguided tour through the world of accounting before focusing on her first loves, reading and writing–and she realized that monsters, superheroes, and happily-ever-afters are easily found between the covers, as well as under them, so she set out to make her own. Meljean lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter. Please help me welcome Meljean to That’s What I’m Talking...

Sunday Snippets #28 – The Iron Duke Week

Sunday Snippets #28 – The Iron Duke Week This week’s Sunday Snippets is a special Sneak Peek for THE IRON DUKE WEEK.  This snippet was selected by author Meljean Brook just for you!  Enjoy! Mina stepped into the lift, standing to the side to make room for Trahaearn and Newberry. The Iron Duke boarded and closed the cage behind him. Newberry abruptly stopped, staring at them through the grating. Trahaearn locked the gate. “It will be too crowded and over its weight capacity, constable. I’ll send it back down for you.” Mina looked at him in disbelief. Though it’d be a tight fit, the lift could accommodate her assistant. Then the duke glanced down at her, wearing...
