Contest for Demon's Hunger by Eve Silver & More
AUTHORS & BOOKS
Hachette Books has given me FIVE ADVANCED READING COPIES of Eve Silver's upcoming novel, Demon's Hunger to give away.
Want to win one? Simply leave a comment telling me what snack you'd give a hungry demon. I'd serve tortilla chips and salsa, because salsa is not only good for the demon's health, but the demon would enjoy the fieriness of the jalapenos. The contest runs through Saturday night, and I'll announce the winners on Monday. Winners will be chosen at random.
Here's a description from the book cover: "Forensic anthropologist Vivien Cairn fears she's losing her mind. Her libido has kicked into overdrive, and she's blacking out-leaving hours of her life unaccounted for and no memory of where she's been...or what she's done. But when a sexy stranger rescues her from a demon attack, Vivien realizes there's more than just her sanity at stake..."
Read an excerpt of Demon's Hunger. "From the shadows, Gavin Johnston watched the play of expressions cross the girl's face as she struggled to stay awake."
Shannon shows quite a bit of commitment by reviewing 8 paranormal books, including Jeaniene Frost's One Foot in the Grave. "The pacing is excellent, and there's enough time spent on the characters themselves to keep me satisfied. Exciting and thrilling, I read this in about six hours and I'm very keen on the next book." (Have My Cake and Eat Yours Too)
Sidhe Vicious shares some fun cover art and blurbs of upcoming novels. "And last but definitely not least, because this author has been rockin the socks off the paranormal romance readers collective you know whats, Nalini Singh has a new cover to whet our appetites for Angel’s Blood, due out March 2009." (Sidhe Vicious Reviews)
Enter Sharon Ashwood's contest for chocolates to celebrate the upcoming release of Ravenous. "Holly Carver is a small-time witch who busts ghosts for tuition money, but ends up wrangling a demon when a haunted house job goes bad." (Fresh Fiction)
Read an excerpt from Sharon Ashwood's Ravenous. "Being the evil Undead wasn’t fun any more. For one thing, it was increasingly hard to get a library card." (Sharon Ashwood)
Contest for a copy of Patrice Michelle's Scion's Revelation. "Caine Grennard was a werewolf, living among humans and lacking purpose--until the night he met a woman with an exotic, irresistible scent." (Fresh Fiction)
Read an excerpt from Scion's Revelation by Patrice Michelle. "As he entered, the Lupreda sitting in the living room and standng in the hall turned and stared. Every single member of the wolf pack was there now." (Patrice Michelle)
MOVIES & DVDS
Interview with Tomas Alfredson, the director of the acclaimed Swedish vampire flick "Let the Right One In." ""I really think you shouldn't do films of good books...The reason is that the depth of a good book is so much greater than you could possibly do on screen in 90 minutes. But this was sort of the exception." (Los Angeles Times)
Need more Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) while you're waiting for the release of "Twilight"? Here he is in a trailer for "How to Be." "Pattinson plays Art, a socially awkward failing musician going through a quarter-life crisis." (Blast Magazine)
GRATUITOUS VIDEO OF THE DAY
Here's a new Spike (James Marsters) video. Spike singing --- not very well, but who cares? He makes angsty work.
And we can't forget Angel and Buffy and Kate Perry's "Hot & Cold" with a disco beat!
