I’m reading paranormal all weekend!! It’s true. I’ve started Jamie McGuire’s paranormal trilogy (I’m on book #1 Providence and she’s working on book #3 right now) and I’m already loving it. And while Jared is wonderfully mysterious… I can’t help but have a HUGE crush on Ryan. I don’t think I’m supposed to, but I do. Do you think that’ll change? Is this one of those “team Ryan vs. team Jared” situations?
Considering who she selected as an ideal “Ryan” 😯 , I think after seeing that picture, I’m automatically biased. I like ’em “bad-boy’ish” and he’s got just *that* look.
So I’m going to kick off today’s post with some fabulous Jamie McGuire news:
- Author of “Beautiful Disaster” Jamie McGuire announced the most AWESOME news on her Facebook page:
“Actually, there will be a spin-off with one of the brothers…and I will also write BD from Travis’ perspective. So look forward to a lot more of BD stories. 🙂 This is all in the beginning stages, and I still have P3 to write, so sit tight. :)”
- And while this isn’t really “news” but since it combines both an author, vampires, and gives me an excuse to post a pic of Colin Farrel (and a trailer!), I’m jumping on it: Author Jeaniene Frost saw Fright Night yesterday and gave it “two fangs up”.
- Jeaniene Frost also announces the title of Vlad’s book on her blog (expected release date March 27th 2012):
“Vlad and Leila’s book finally has a title. Leila is a new character, but series readers know that Vlad is a pyrokinetic vampire, so we wanted a title that hinted at this. Leila has some unusual abilities, too, but I can’t say more about those until I’m allowed to release the book description. Until then, I give you…
Once Burned (Night Prince, Book 1), the first book in the new Night Prince series!”
check out the rest of her blog post (and what the book is bout, here)

- And what I think to be my last bit of news for the day… Since I love rock stars, and vampires (and heck, throw in fallen angels to while we’re at it), this author (Adrian Phoenix) combines the best of all of them into one delicious, angsty, moody, sexy paranormal package in the form of “Dante”. Here is the cover for her next book On Midnight Wings (The Maker’s Song) (expected release date March 27th 2012).
