Spooky Legends & Giveaway: Jennifer Estep’s Gwen Frost on Hitchhikers “KISS OF FROST”

Spooky Legends & Giveaway: Jennifer Estep’s Gwen Frost on Hitchhikers “KISS OF FROST”

October 31, 2011 Giveaways, Spooky Legends 64

Spooky Legends 2011 is ending today!  We though it fitting that since she opened this event, and since she has two amazing paranormal series with new releases this season, that we’d invite Jennifer Estep back to wrap up Spooky Legends.  I made a bold statement regarding Jennifer’s newest series, Mythos Academy, when I reviewed the debut TOUCH OF FROST earlier this year.  I said it was the best thing she’d written yet.  Of course I may have to revise my statement with the sequel KISS OF FROST is published by Kensington on November 29, 2011.  Jennifer’s protagonist, Gwen Frost is… Read more »

Spooky Legends: K.D. McEntire’s Lily and Elle on Haunted Toys ‘R Us “LIGHTBRINGER”

October 29, 2011 Guests, Spooky Legends 8

As if toys stores aren’t hectic enough around the holidays, adding a few ghosts to the mix won’t help matters any.  The afterlife doesn’t mean rest for the Lightbringer and her friends, and two of these friends are hunting down a rogue spirit in K.D. McEntire’s story today.  After enjoying Elle and Lily’s antics at Toys ‘R Us, you can read more in LIGHTBRINGER by K.D. McEntire, available this November 15 from Pyr.  If you can’t wait that long, Abigail’s review of the same will be here on November 8, to tide you over for that last week. Click to… Read more »


Spooky Legends & Giveaway: Theresa Meyers’s Colt Jackson on Skinwalkers & win a signed copy of THE HUNTER

Spooky Legends & Giveaway: Theresa Meyers’s Colt Jackson on Skinwalkers & win a signed copy of THE HUNTER

October 28, 2011 Giveaways, Spooky Legends 35

THE HUNTER (available on November 1, 2011 from Zebra) was my first book by Theresa Meyers, but it will definitely not be my last.  The action was vivid, the romance was playful, and as I say in my review up later today, the “blend of Wild, Wild West steampunk and demonic forces was everything I could have hoped for and more.”  I really enjoyed that Meyers wasn’t afraid to put her own spin on both romance and genre tropes, and look forward to picking up book two in The Legend Chronicles, THE SLAYER, when it comes out this April.  One… Read more »

October 27, 2011 Giveaways, Spooky Legends 45

We’ve got something special for today’s Spooky Legend.  It’s not a retelling of a well known urban legend, instead Kersten Hamiliton, author of IN THE FORESTS OF THE NIGHT, the second book in The Goblin Wars series (available on November 22, 2011 from Clarion Books), is sharing her original story LOVELEAVES AND WOODENDER which she eventually expanded into TYGER TYGER.  Be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a pre-ordered copy of IN THE FORESTS OF THE NIGHT.  See details below Click to see the Spooky Legends Master List with links to all the previous posts and… Read more »

Spooky Legends & Giveaway: Jaclyn Dolamore’s Esmerine on The Mermaid of Zennor & win BETWEEN THE SEA AND SKY

October 26, 2011 Giveaways, Spooky Legends 38

Today’s Spooky Legend story and characters fit together perfectly, that’s because we have a real life mermaid telling us the legendary Mermaid of Zennor story. Jaclyn Dolamor’s Esmerine from BETWEEN THE SEA AND SKY (available now from Bloomsbury Childrens USA).  If you missed my review, I said, “I was completely swept away by this tender and mournful love story.” Want to read it yourself?
