New release this week!  PERSONAL DEMON by Susan Sizemore is a wonderful new paranormal romance/urban fantasy just out from Ace Books!  (Yes, it actually has both on the spine and should have enough action, romance and suspense to satisfy readers of all of the above.)

“Sizemore makes a welcome return to her Laws of the Blood series with a new entry featuring a vampire enforcer confronting the different way they handle things in Chicago. Sizemore’s two protagonists are worlds apart in their views of how vampires, humans and demons should interact, but that just adds to the tension in this excellent dark and hard-edged thriller!” – Romantic Times Book Reviews

Blurb:

In a community kept hidden, the Enforcers are an elite group of vampires sworn to serve and protect their kind—and follow the Laws of the Blood…

As one of Chicago’s vampire hunters, Ivy Bailey is responsible for keeping the city’s human residents safe—a job that becomes infinitely harder when someone starts committing gruesome acts of magical murder. But what Ivy doesn’t realize is that she is a hunter being hunted…

Vampire Enforcer Christopher Bell is in Chicago to investigate rumors of a revolution, but when he comes across Ivy being followed through dark streets, what he finds is a ghost from his past. Over a century ago, Christopher fought the vicious London serial killer Jack the Ripper—and won. But now, the Ripper’s tainted soul is back—on the hunt once more.

Ivy insists she doesn’t need protection—especially from a vampire Enforcer. But soon, Christopher finds himself in the middle of a fight between demons and mortals, watching over the frustrating woman who has managed to stir his undead heart….

Word has it that my latest novel FANGTASTIC is already downloading to Kindles!  (Though the official release date for the printed version is the 8th.)  I hope some of you will want to check it out, view the Vamped series music video, download the MP3 and/or enter the get caught reading contest that ends on January 7th.

In other shiny news (yes, I’m a Browncoat, can you tell?), three new Susan Sizemore novels are newly available digitally as well:

NO PROMISES (formerly ON A LONG AGO NIGHT)

Don’t you just love this cover?  NO PROMISES is your one-stop shopping for adventure, harems, great escapes and a scandalous affair.  What more could you want?

THE PRICE OF INNOCENCE

Pirates, temptation, a reckless passion and a secret past.  Sold!

MY OWN TRUE LOVE

Gypsies, danger, time travel and a textbook example of “be careful what you wish for.”

Lots of great reading for the new year!

I can’t believe how quickly DragonCon is coming up!  It’s their 25th anniversary, so it should be a blow-out.  Guests include Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, Jonathan Maberry, Adam Baldwin, Christopher Lloyd, Edward James Olmos, Colin Ferguson…the list goes on and on.

For those of you planning your visit, I hope you’ll swing by and see me and the premier of my music video for the Vamped series in Booth 707 in the Marquis Ballroom at the Marriott Marquis Atlanta.  Many awesome authors will be participating, and you can probably find a full schedule of events at the DragonCon website, but I thought I’d post an at-a-glance list here for my authors who’ll be in attendance (Rachel Caine, David B. Coe, Faith Hunter, Kalayna Price and Susan Sizemore).  I’ve included my schedule below as well.  Unfortunately, due to her current health, Rob Thurman will be there only in spirit.  However, her booth mates will have an oversized card for people to sign (Marriott Marquis, Marquis Ballroom, Booths 100 & 102), and they’ll be passing out her giveaways and selling books on her behalf, so I hope you’ll stop by.
