And once you’re in, there’s no escape…), was kind enough to stop by today to clear up a little matter plaguing a number of authors within the urban fantasy genre and why she owes a debt of gratitude to glittery vampires and HBO.  Make sure to check out the giveaway details below to… Read more »

Kaylayna Price posted the (not final) cover for Grave Witch – An Alex Craft Novel.  I’m not really a fan of her Haven series, but going just off the cover, this new series looks awesome! I received this in my email this morning and just got permission to post it. GRAVE WITCH is my upcoming October release from Roc. This is not the final version of the cover as quotes still need to be added to it, but the art is final. Isn’t it breathtaking? Personally, I’m in awe! What do you think? -Kalayna

Throwdown Thursday: In the Blood vs. Night Myst

March 4, 2010 Uncategorized 7

Throwdown Thursday is a weekly thing where we tackle books with similar characters, covers, themes, etc. to determine which one rocks more. And it is up to YOU to determine the winner! Last weeks Throwdown asked: Dead, Undead cover vs. ATUF banner? The verdict was…a draw.  Both the cover and the banner got equal votes I spotted the cover for Yasmine Galenorn’s Night Mist several weeks ago and loved it:  A tough looking brunette beauty dressed in dark jeans and a black leather jacket, a tattoo covering her exposed midriff.  And then I remembered Adrian Phoenix’s cover for In the… Read more »
