Undead and Unappreciated!

LOL, that's exactly what I feel like under this book deadline! But in this case, Undead and Unappreciated is the title of Mary Janice Davidson's in your face funny vampire book just out in hardcover from Berkley!
Betsy, a vampire, crashes an AA meeting hoping to get tips on how to stop her addiction to drinking blood...well good lord, you can just take it from there. You don't want to miss this hilarious treat!
(Berkley, July 2005)

Most women would love to live as royalty, but Betsy Taylor has found that being vampire queen has more problems than perks, except for always being awake for Midnight Madness sales. It may be easy to find blood (yuck) in the dark of night, but try finding a strawberry smoothie. And employees at her nightclub Scratch have been giving her nothing but grief since she killed their former boss. Some people...

But Betsy's "life" takes an interesting turn at a baby shower for her wicked stepmother, who lets it slip that Betsy has a long-last half sister. Now twenty years old, this woman just so happens to be the devil's daughter...and destined to rule the world.

Crimson City

In the mood?
Wanting just a taste of something a little bit different?
Try a nice long lick of Liz Maverick's Crimson City. Underworld meets Terminator in this dark tale in a city where desire meets danger and more than the stars come out at night!
Don't miss this unique story this summer!!! Meanwhile I'm chained in the dungeon of deadline hell, but promise to surface again soon!!
CRIMSON CITY by Liz Maverick
(Love Spell, July 2005)
Once, this was the City of Angels. The angels are no longer in charge.

From the extravagant appetites of the vampire world above, to the gritty defiance of the werewolves below, the specter of darkness lives around every corner, the hope of paradise in every heart. All walk freely with humans in a tentative peace, but to live in Los Angeles is to balance on the edge of a knife. One woman knows better than most that death lurks here in nights of bliss or hails of UV bullets. She’s about to be tested, to taste true thirst. She’s about to regain the power she’s long been denied. And Fleur Dumont is about to meet the one man who may understand her: a tormented protector who’s lost his way and all he loved.

Carpe Demon!

As I'm struggling under a killer deadline to put the right words on the page, I have to take a breath and smile at a fellow writer's hard earned success. Some times pure genius hits the page and Julie Kenner has a hands down winner for that award this summer! Carpe Demon!
The title is just the beginning taste of this author's mastery of wit and humor and the story is even more irresistible! See for yourself.

CARPE DEMON: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom by Julie Kenner (Berkley, July 2005)
Carpools. Crabgrass. Creatures from the depths of hell. Suburbia has its problems too...
Lots of women put their careers aside once the kids come along. Kate Connor, for instance, hasn't hunted a demon in ages...
That must be why she missed the one wandering through the pet food aisle of the San Diablo Wal-Mart. Unfortunately, he managed to catch her attention an hour later-when he crashed into the Connor house, intent on killing her.
Now Kate has to clean up the mess in her kitchen, dispose of a dead demon, and pull together a dinner party that will get her husband elected to County Attorney-all without arousing her family's suspicion. Worse yet, it seems the dead demon didn't come alone. He was accompanied by a High Demon named Goramesh who, for some unknown reason, intends to kill off the entire population of San Diablo.
It's time for Kate Connor to go back to work.


CARPE DEMON: ADVENTURES OF A DEMON-HUNTING SOCCER MOM has been optioned for film by Warner Brothers & 1492 Pictures, and is scheduled for release as an audiobook from BBC America Audiobooks.

In addition, CARPE DEMON was recently honored by being selected by BOOKSENSE as a Summer 2005 Paperback Pick.
Do me a favor, after you read this jewel, let me know and e-mail Julie so you can get on a list to find out when the movie is coming out!
Stay safe this summer!
More to come soon.

Master of the Moon

There's great news after this hot July Fourth Holiday! I hope you and your fams had a fabulous time with BBQ's, picnics, and fireworks. Unfortunately for me, deadline hell prevailed. I spent the day chained to the computer and still am, but things are shapeing up harrowinly nice and deliciously sexy for my werewolf story! Meanwhile, for those of you who are looking to set your summer on fire, have I got a book for you!

Angela Knight's Master of the Moon is on the shelves but won't be for long! Fans looking for her trademark heat and mastery of the paranormal will be grabbing up this hot summer read, so don't delay and don't miss it.
Here's a peek!

MASTER OF THE MOON by Angela Knight
(Berkley Sensation, May 2005)

Diana London works hard in her day job as the city manager of a small South Carolina town. Yet she still finds time to moonlight for the Verdaville Police Department.
As a werewolf.
But while helping the police investigate a brutal murder, Diana discovers she’s not the only magical creature in town. A female vampire has also decided to make Verdaville her murderous playground. What’s worse, she has powers even Diana can’t match.
Fortunately, Diana is not the only one determined to stop her. Llyr Galatyn is the king of the Cachamwri Sidhe – a seductive otherworldly warrior with fantastic abilities. He’s sworn to hunt down the murderer, and he’s more than willing to give Diana any help she needs.
And not just with the case. Diana is in her Burning Moon, a time of sexual heat, when need rides her hard. Llyr is delighted to be the answer to her erotic prayers.
But as they hunt the vampire while desire runs hot between them, a deadly enemy urges the killer to turn her sights on Llyr. It seems Llyr isn’t the only king of the Sidhe – and his brother wants him dead.
My apologies that my midnight muse has been so absorbed by my current book, but I promise it will be worth the wait. Talk soon
