It feels like it’s been raining every day where I live, and the weather has me wanting to cocoon on the couch with a good book or a good TV show. Of course I can’t do either because I have to work, but a girl can covet, right? I have a bunch of books in my “Can read when I finish writing Up From the Grave!” pile, and here are some TV shows coming out in the fall that I’m looking forward to.
DRACULA, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Nonso Anozie and Jessica De Gouw. Do I really need to elaborate on why I’m...
While I was getting my hair colored a couple weeks ago, I happened upon an article in People magazine about a new Netflix-only series called Hemlock Grove. It didn’t take reading beyond “werewolf” “supernatural” and “horror” to have me writing the title down and then checking it out during my non-working time. The review in People also stated that the show is a little slow to get into the mystery, and when I started to watch it, I agreed. The background shots can also occasionally be fake-looking,...
Before I get to anything else, my wonderful editor, Erika Tsang, is offering up a full manuscript critique to the winning bidder in her contribution for the Brenda Novak annual auction to benefit diabetes research. If you’re an aspiring author, this is an opportunity to help people with diabetes and yourself at the same time, heh. In addition to being my editor, Erika also edits authors Lynsay Sands, Kerrelyn Sparks, Colleen Gleason (writing as Joss Ware) and Beverly Jenkins. Link to bid on Erika’s auction is here.
And now, to the...
I’m leaving tomorrow for the Romantic Times convention in Kansas City, Missouri. If you’re also attending and you’d like to say hi, get some swag, or trip me as I walk past (heh), here’s where you can find me:

It’s early to post this because pre-order links won’t be up until next month, but I’m excited and didn’t want to wait to share . Without further ado, here is the cover, stepback (inside cover art) and description for Up from the Grave, Cat and Bones #7. I also just found out the release date, which is January 28, 2014. That’s about a month later than I thought it would be, but that’s how it goes.
There’s always one more grave to dig.
Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat...
As I promised last week, here are the videos I did in a recent chat with Goodreads. In them, I answer these reader questions:
“After you’re done with Cat and Bones and Vlad and Leila, will you continue to write about the Night Huntress World?”
“Has Maximus been cut off from Vlad’s line and is there any chance he can redeem himself to Vlad and Leila?”
“NH will be over soon (I am extremely sad about that). How do you feel about that and are you ending the series with a bang?”
“Are any of the characters in your books...
First, my apologies to anyone who tuned in (or tried to tune in) to the Goodreads Gotta Have Paranormal With a Kick chat last Friday. Goodreads was having some issues and the site kicked me off. It also kicked off two out of the four moderators and many, many other people. Because of this, the Gotta Have Paranormal With A Kick chat has been rescheduled to May 10th from 7pm – 9pm. If you asked questions on the “old” post, don’t worry. A list of previous questions will be sent to me so that I can have them answered in...
Hi all. First, thanks for your many congrats on my list news last week! It’s wonderful to be able to celebrate Twice Tempted’s warm reception with you. Second, I’m busy writing Up from the Grave (Cat and Bones #7) but this Friday the 12th, I’m taking time out to chat with whoever’s feeling sociable . So between 7pm and 9pm EST, you can find me over on the Goodreads group Gotta Have Paranormal With A Kick. Click the image below to be linked to the exact page for the chat:
Just in case the image...
I’m so excited to announce that Twice Tempted hit a bunch of bestseller lists in its first week out, such as:

# 5 on the New York Times Combined Print and Ebook list
# 6 on the New York Times Ebook list
# 21 on the New York Times Combined Hardcover and Paperback list

It also appeared on the Audible.com Audio Books bestseller list, but I couldn’t find a number for that. Still, big yay for that, too!...
Hi everyone! Since these are questions that I’m getting asked more and more, I wanted to address them here.
Q: Will there be another Vlad and Leila book after Twice Tempted?
A: Yes, the Night Prince series will be a trilogy. Expect the third and final Vlad and Leila novel out next year.
Q: Are you finished writing about Cat and Bones, then?
A: No. I’m writing Up from the Grave, Cat and Bones #7, right now. Tentative release date is the very end of this year. Cat and Bones’s storyline will end at book eight, however....
