I guess I'm just uncouth (and a scaredy-cat!)...for if I spotted a zombie, I'd run quickly in the other direction! :p


Winners, Winners, Winners - December 15, 2010

The winner of a PDF copy of Taken To The Limit by Nico Rosso is

Kelly aka yllektra(force-oblique) who said...
Thanks for hosting this interview.

I don't think I have read a Sci-Fi romance before and this sounds really interesting.

The environment I usually enjoy as the stage of my favorite romance is actually anything that makes life and the romance itself difficult for the protagonists. Maybe in the midst of war, just like in Taken to the Limit, or maybe something dating to the Middle Ages where there was really no room for romance as women were quite restrained.

The winners have been notified and have until December 22, 2010 at 11:59 PM US Eastern Time to respond or The Qwillery will be forced to randomly chose a new winner or winner.

Thank you to everyone who participated!

Bram Stoker, Dracula, and a Giveaway - November 10, 1020

Bram Stoker's was born in November 1847. While he wrote several books he is most well known for Dracula, which was published in 1897. Stoker did not invent the vampire story, he just made it wildly popular and influenced generations of writers.

In honor of Bram's birthday, I'm going to give away a copy of Dracula by Bram Stoker and a copy of Dracula The Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt. Dacre Stoker is Bram's great-grandnephew. Both books are Trade Paperbacks.

Dracula by Bram Stoker

The one vampire to outlive them all.

Here begins the story of an evil both ages old, and forever new. It is the story of those who instill a diabolic craving in their victims, the men and women from whose blood they draw their only sustenance. It is a novel of peculiar power, of hypnotic fascination. The reader is warned that he who enters Castle Dracula may not escape its baleful spell-even when he closes this book...

Dracula The Un-Dead by Dacre Stoker and Ian Holt

The authoritative sequel to Bram Stoker's original horror classic.

A quarter of a century after Count Dracula "crumbled into dust," Quincey Harker-the son of Jonathan and Mina Harker-leaves law school to pursue a career on stage, only to stumble upon the troubled production of Dracula, directed and produced by Bram Stoker himself.

As the play plunges Quincey into the world of his parents' terrible secrets, death begins to stalk the original band of heroes that defeated Dracula a quarter-century ago. Could it be that the count survived and is now seeking revenge? Or is there another, far more sinister force at work whose relentless purpose is to destroy anything and anyone associated with Dracula, the most notorious vampire of all time?

The View From Monday - November 8, 2010

Happy Monday! We're having our first sleet and freezing rain of the cold weather months today. Of course, I've not taken down the hammock or put away our outside furniture. I'm not ready for Winter quite yet. This is definitely the wake-up call to winterize though.

The View From Monday - November 8, 2010

There are not many books coming out this week so I don't intend to do a New Release Tuesday Vlog. Frankly, I'm not quite sure what this week will hold. You can be surprised along with me.

Today is Bram Stoker's Birthday. He was born on November 8, 1847 in Ireland. Read something vampiric in his memory. There may be something to celebrate his birthday later in the week.

Bitten in Two by Jennifer Rardin will be released tomorrow. It's the 7th in the Jaz Parks series.

The View From Monday - November 8, 2010

Jaz Parks here. I. Am. Pissed. Just as Vayl and I arrive in Morocco to secure an ancient artifact, he wakes up calling me by another woman's name. And it's not even a good one. But since any form of argument transforms him into an unholy terror, I'm forced to play along until the gang and I can figure out what kind of power has so vastly altered his perceptions.

So it's time for me to do what any well-trained assassin in my position might do. I attack. What follows is a hair-raising, breath-taking bullet train ride to the finish as the crew battles on multiple fronts. I now know what I have to do - I must return to hell one last time.

The final Jaz Parks book, The Deadliest Bite, will be published next year. Jennifer completed the book before her untimely passing in September 2010.
