Being Alpha, by Aileen Erin

I love it when a main character actually grows over the course of a series. Developing as a person, becoming more confident. Without any spoilers (ever!), Tessa has done just that. I loved her in the beginning, and I love her now. I just finished Being Alpha about five minutes ago, and I already can’t wait for the next one!

Supernatural murder and an alpaca. A magical romantic comedy… with a body count.

Supernatural murder and an alpaca. A magical romantic comedy… with a body count.

Hoofin’ It, by RJ Blain

$0.99 Kindle Sale ($4.99)

What do FBI agents, vampires, witches, glass eyes, alpacas, and a wicked sense of humor all have in common? You guessed it: Hoofin’ It, by RJ Blain. I read the first chapter and then bought it immediately for only $0.99. I laughed at the spitting alpaca. I laughed at the conversation Shane has with his mother. Heck, I laughed at the dialog with the 911 operator, but there’s probably something wrong with me.

I even laughed at the dedication. Here, look. I screenshotted it for you.

Why Did The New Republic Call This Book “Pernicious” in 1976?

Interview with the Vampire, by Anne Rice

$2.99 Kindle Sale! ($7.99)

This is the book that started it all–the bestselling, 10-volume Vampire Chronicles series that catapulted Anne Rice into the realm of author legend. When it came out in 1976, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said it was “hypnotically poetic in tone, rich in sensory imagery and dense with the darkness that lies behind the veil of human thought.” The New Republic, on the other hand, called it “pernicious.”

Critics aside, it earned almost $1,000,000 in sales and movie rights before it hit the streets and is now one of the essential cornerstones of any fantasy or paranormal collection. The deal has only a few days left, so don’t wait to pick up this timeless masterpiece.

Get the deal.

Spells & Sugar: Recipe for Fun!

Spells & Sugar: Recipe for Fun!

Deadly Sweet, by Lola Dodge

All Anise wants is to become a pastry chef, but applying to college isn’t easy when you’re a witch. Shouldn’t magic make her life easier? In small ways, maybe. But baking a little happiness into cookies isn’t the same thing as waving a magic wand and making all your dreams come true. Normal people are scared of her, and even her own mother—the only other witch Anise has ever known—would rather she didn’t use her powers at all.

When Anise is assaulted at a local fair, her untempered magic comes to her rescue, incinerating the baking tent and leaving a trail of crime behind. Then, with superior witchy timing, Anise’s great-aunt invites her to apprentice at the only witch-sanctioned bakery in the country, and Anise jumps at the chance. But things go from bad to worse as Anise discovers that finally embracing her power might come with a terrible price.

Flash Interview: Tyrolin Puxty

Introducing Realm FM!

Hello, blog readers! We’re stoked to announce a brand new book by Tyrolin Puxty, author of the infamous Colt Harper, Esteemed Vampire Cat–not to mention the Broken Dolls series–and one of our favorite people from the land down under! (And that’s saying something. We like a lot of Australians. Go figure.)

Not only has the cover just been revealed today, but we were lucky enough to catch up with the author herself for a FLASH INTERVIEW about the new title, Realm FM, arriving December 5. It’s about a radio station built on top of a wormhole … and the young woman who gets to interview Bigfoot … and the guy she’s trying not to be attracted to. In short, classic Tyrolin Puxty!
