I am a huge fan of the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs, so when I heard she was starting another series I was ecstatic. Cry Wolf begins the new Alpha and Omega series, which centers around Charles and Anna. Taking place right after their story, Alpha and Omega, in […]
Fangs, Fur, & Fey has an interview with Chris Howard, author of Seaborn. Also, MTV posted the first official trailer for the sixth Harry Potter movie, which comes out in November. Here’s the imdb entry. So what do you guys think of Harry Potter and the Halfblood Prince?
There’s been another HBO website that has popped up as part of their ad campaign for True Blood. The American Vampire League is there “To eradicate the fear and hatred of vampires that is caused by both widespread misinformation and an entire race’s punishment for the crimes of a few.” […]
I couldn’t wait for it so I made a trip to Barnes and Noble yesterday just so I could get my hands on a copy of Jenna Black’s new Morgan Kingsley novel, The Devil You Know. I’m going through a whole demon lovin’ period at the moment and the fact […]
Make sure you head over to Amber’s and wish her a Happy 30th. I still have about 18 months before that joyous occasion myself, but I’m so not looking forward to it. I know it’s just a number, but there’s something about turning 30 that makes me feel old. Do […]
