A huge WHOO HOO and shout out to:

Wild Things Chloe Neill, whose latest Chicagoland Vampires novel WILD THINGS is on Amazon’s list of Best Books of the Month for February!

spirit and dustgated Rosemary Clement-Moore and Amy Christine Parker for being named to ALA’s Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers for their novels SPIRIT AND DUST  and GATED respectively!

LEGACY Molly Cochran, whose young adult novel LEGACY is currently specially priced for Kindle at just $1.99!

Quick quotes:

“Cochran’s first title for young adults is a rip-roaring adventure featuring half-witch Katy Jessevar, newly exiled to boarding school when her widowed father takes up with a cutthroat businesswoman…. The well-conceived history and culture of Katy’s magical world make this first title unique in the panoply of series featuring a half-mortal, half-magic character. Other interesting features are Cochran’s emphasis on nature’s role in magic, a definite pro-environment and anti–big business slant, and her inclusion of characters of color. The teasing epilogue promises a sequel, and readers will be ready for it.” – Booklist

“Cochran’s first book for teens will satisfy readers hungry for a little paranormal excitement and romance in a post-Twilight world…a quick, entertaining read.”–Kirkus

“In her YA debut, bestselling adult author Cochran (the Forever King trilogy) presents an exciting and well-written tale of contemporary witchcraft and romance…should please the legions of paranormal fans looking for a sophisticated supernatural thriller”–Publishers Weekly

“The unsettling and unique plot details and well-drawn secondary characters make this novel stand out from others in the genre.” —School Library Journal

princeofshadows_lores Rachel Caine, who is currently on tour for her latest novel PRINCE OF SHADOWS, an intriguing retelling of Romeo & Juliet from the point of view of Benvolio.  She talks about it here with The Huffington Post and here with USA Today!

freezewarning Tor.com has released an original novella by Susan Krinard in the world of her wonderful urban fantasy MIST.  For a treat, you can check it out on their site or download it for Kindle, Nook or other e-readers.

Blurb: As a nearly immortal Valkyrie, Mist is the guardian of the greatest of the Norse god’s Treasures—Odin’s spear Gungnir. But Mist believes all the gods are dead, and she’s slowly settling into a normal life in San Francisco. Just when Mist is ready to give up the duty the All-father laid on her, she meets a mysterious woman, Bella Stratus, and a man who helps her save Bella’s life: Eric Larsson, the perfect embodiment of a Viking warrior. He’s charming, good-natured, and nearly her equal in strength; and for the first time in centuries Mist has found someone she might be able to love… and trust. But even as Mist remembers the past she left behind and contemplates a new future with Eric, Bella warns her that she can’t fight her fate.

No matter what happens, no matter how hard she tries, she’ll never be able to escape the destiny that awaits her.
