e-book price drop, on one of my Hollows favorites!

We are getting closer to AMERICAN DEMON’s release, and things are really starting to pop! I’ve seen the actual, real cover, and man, ACE is doing it up amazingly. The cover just feels substantial, and the spine is pretty thick.

If you are planning on re-reading the series before AMERICAN DEMON, there is still time. The read-a-long over at — Goodreads — has moved up to PALE DEMON, but all the folders are there and running if you want to dive in now and start at DEAD WITCH WALKING.

But for the next few days, Harper has okayed a short-lived price reduction for the e-book. Take advantage of it! It won’t last long, and it’s a nice way to round out your e-library and give your paperbacks a rest. 😉  Links below.

Amazon Kindle    Barnes and Noble Nook

Because this is a publisher-sponsored price reduction, it is unfortunately for U.S. only.

A-a-a-and, as in previous years, Nicola’s has opened up their pre-orders for AMERICAN DEMON!  If you’re looking for a signed/personalized book, here’s where you can get it. International orders are A-ok. Just email them first from the order page. Let me know who you want it personalized to in the comment’s section at Nicola’s order page.

Contest is closed. Give me an hour to pick the winners and I’ll post them in a new post. 🙂 Thanks for playing along with me, guys! You make it fun!

The days until the publication of The Undead Pool are down to less than a month, and if you’ve missed it, I’ve got chapters 1-3  and chapter 4 up and available for your pre-reading pleasure.

The read-along is going strong over at Goodreads  as we finish up A Perfect Blood and move on to EVER AFTER, and the associated e-book sales have been a great success. EVER AFTER won’t be going on sale since it just came out, but when I checked this morning, Pale Demon is still up there for the special price. I don’t know how long they will stay up for that price, so move fast if you want them.

If you want a signed first edition copy of THE UNDEAD POOL, and I’m not coming near you for the tour, we have options! B&N appears to have run out their signed stock, but you can still get them at Nicola’s, and if you ask in the note-to-seller, I can sign them personally to you.

To order a signed copy from Nicola’s, just follow the link. International is okay!

Today, I’m giving away seven prize packs, each having a hard cover, signed copy of A Perfect Blood, and a copy of Blood Crime, the second and final graphic Hollows novel from Ivy’s POV that shows Rachel and Ivy working together at the I.S. There’s also a signed cover flat from A Perfect Blood, a bunny pin, bus token, and Rachel’s pack tattoo, which was the freebie that year.


To enter the contest for the prize pack, all you have to do is drop down to the comment box at the end of the page here and tell me if you think Winona was what the demons looked like, or if she’s more of a hybrid. (If you’ve not read the book, then tell me what you think of the cover.) Your post is your entry into the random drawing, so please comment only once–on your honor!

Rules and Regs. I will open the page for comments Monday, 9:00 a.m. EST, and close it Tuesday 9:00 a.m. EST. I will then use a random number generator to choose the seven winning commenters.

APBprizepack2Stuff to know before commenting:

Guy will ship overseas, so international is okay.

Chances of winning are dependent on how many enter.

My decision is final, even if you quibble over it.

I will contact the winners Tuesday morning using the email address they used to comment with, so please check it in the next day or so. If you don’t respond to me by email by Friday, noon, EST, I’m giving the prize pack to the runner up, also chosen by the random number generator.

Thanks for playing with me guys. This has been a lot of fun! And good luck!

Pale Demon lands top honors at B&N’s best paranormal fantasy releases of 2011

I was shocked and terribly pleased this weekend to find out that Pale Demon was picked by Paul Goat Allen as his favorite paranormal fantasy release of 2011 at Barnes and Noble, and I just had to share the news with you!  To see the entire list, click.  Black Magic Sanction made the list last year, but this year, Rachel is heading the list!  Go Rachel!

I’ve been there myself to peruse the list, and I must say that I’m gratified to see the level of talent that the genre has brought to the shelf.  Wow.  I agree with Paul that it’s the mixing of genres that is the core strength of Paranormal/Urban fantasy, and it’s that which is going to keep the good stuff coming.  Personally, I can’t wait to see what the next ten years or so are going to bring as styles evolve and new blood enriches the field.


Oh!  I forgot to mention that Blood Work got an honorable mention, as well!  That really surprised me as it was such a new storytelling technique for me, and I was involved from the ground up.
