Today, I have to give some major shout outs! First, two incredible authors Rachel Caine and Chloe Neill (alphabetically, not playing favorites!) for hitting the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists this week!  That’s right, Rachel Caine’s Morganville Vampires are on top once again at #10 on the NYT Children’s series bestseller list with the most recent entry, LAST BREATH, debuting at #64 on the USA Today list.  Chloe Neill’s Chicagoland Vampires are burning up the bestseller lists with DRINK DEEP at #15 for Print Paperbacks, #19 for e-Books and #28 the combined list and debuting at #56 for USA Today!  You go, gals!  You can see both authors together here on Omaha’s The Morning Blend.

I also want to give a huge shout out to Bryan Anderson, whose inspiring memoir, NO TURNING BACK, written with David Mack, hit shelves this month.  Here he is, interviewed by Morgan Doremus of Romantic Times On-Line.

You may already have seen it in Publishers Weekly, but just in case, I’m so pleased to announce that NAL has acquired three more novels in Rachel Caine’s New York Times-bestselling Morganville Vampires young adult series.  Just in case you’ve missed out and want to get caught up, Morganville, Texas is a quiet college town populated and powered by vampires who’ve come to a sort of understanding with the human community—you abide by certain rules, swear fealty to a protector, make your monthly blood donations, and they won’t snack on you. Except under extreme conditions…based on a very fluid definition of extreme.  Unfortunately, the young residents of the Glass House, one of the Founders buildings with secrets and a resident spirit of its own, aren’t terribly good about following the rules.

She’s about to embark on the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour with other amazingly Smart Chicks Melissa Marr, Kelley Armstrong, Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Simone Elkeles, Kami Garcia, Ally Condie, Beth Revis, Margaret Stohl, Sara Zarr, Melissa de la Cruz, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Stephanie Kuehnert, Richelle Mead, Jeri Smith-Ready, Rachel Vincent…whew, the list goes on and on!  The full schedule is here.  This all leads perfectly into tomorrow’s post, an interview with Jeri Smith-Ready, one of the contributors to the new Enthralled anthology which grew out of last year’s tour!

WoW Insider says of Christie Golden’s Thrall, “Golden is blessed with a golden pen. I would not be surprised to see this novel hit the New York Times Bestseller List, just like Arthas and The Shattering.” They’re prophetic. #26, baby!
