A Double Dare, A Wild Party &10 Days Of Paranormal Romance Fun...

For some reason I shifted in to a busy little bee now that September has arrived. I haz got loads of fun stuff and just wanted to share it with you all :) 

On September 10th (which is tomorrow) I have accepted a dare...

When Book Chick City e-mailed me with the idea to do a Double Dare I was all for it. She would read and review a book in my genre and I would read and review a book in her genre. So tomorrow I have Book Chick City over with a guest review of Lauren Dane - LAID BARE and I will be found at her place with a review of Brian Keene's THE RISING. Have I told you it's like a decade ago since I read a horror story!!

Could this be more opposite LOL

I also have a wild giveaway party starting tomorrow that is called BlogFest and more then 250 blogs will participate in it. I just wanted a pre-party to my upcoming 10 day long feature to celebrate the awesomeness of the paranormal romance genre with the vampires, the shapeshifters, the kick-ass chicks:

September 10-12; Blogfest giveaway:

International and shipped via The Book Depository Store
Sherrilyn Kenyon - No Mercy (UK edition)
Alyssa Day - Atlantis Betrayed
Zoe Archer - Warrior
Anya Bast - Cruel Enchantment
After all this excitement I need a bit of a breather to fuel myself for 10 days of Paranormal Romance fun.

So in my absence Erin McCarthy decided to pop over and she talks about her very first werewolf with a guestblog title; "Got Fur?" To make her party complete she's also giving away a copy of THE BEAST WITHIN and HOT FINISH.

Erin McCarthy's story in THE BEAST WITHIN is:

The Howling:

When Liv Lugaru’s boyfriend Sebastian disappears, she finds comfort in his brother’s arms. But Sebastian is much closer than Liv realizes…and he’ll stop at nothing to protect her from the feral danger that comes alive only when she sleeps...

Since I got my e-reader my attention shifted a bit to erotica and M/M romance/erotica LOL But the PNR books kept piling up and I wanted to sample some new authors next to the vested ones on my shelves. So I've got reviews, guestblogs and an interview too where some *rowr* new vampires enter my realm. The complete agenda will be up next week!

My *achem* oh so creative title for this 10 day long feature? The Vampire, The Shapeshifter & The Kick Ass Chick.

Let's have some fun together!!!

  1. Sounds great. I like the title of your feature, but then I'm also not very creative :)

    The Rising looks like a book that would give me horrible nightmares. Hope it wasn't too bad for you.

  2. Just reading this I feel exhausted, but it does sound like a lot of fun! Enjoy!

    And I applaud you for taking on the dare...and reading a Horror book. That's one genre I can safely say I don't own a single book of and have absolutely no inclination to read...Too much of a wuss and scaredy cat for it! Am curious to see what you thought of it after not reading Horror for a decade.

  3. WoW! You have a ton of great things coming up!

    I love the dare that you're involved in. What a great way to force yourself into reading something 'different' from the everyday norm. Was it hard to shift gears? I tend to find that if I've been in a particular genre for awhile than try to switch to another, I have a hard time.

    I love your little button you made for your 10 days of fun! I hope things are going well for you! :)

  4. OMG I'm not sure if I would enjoy horror. Kudos to you. Can't wait to read the reviews.

    And you have some great things coming on your blog. Sounds like fun. =)

  5. @Sabrina - I've always been a very eclectic reader but save the romance the genres has shifted a bit. In my teens and tweens I used to read Dean Koontz, Stephen King and more of their ilk. The experience definitely was an eye opener for me though just how much I changed over the years LOL

    @Pearl - I can promise you that October and November will be focussed more on just reading and reviewing LOL

    @Tanya - I've actually had to shift gear a bit to PNR/UF these last couple of weeks and I had to get a feel for it again in terms of world building and such LOL

    I love the dare and perhaps in the future will do something like that again with perhaps someone else. It's definitely a way to search for your boundaries LOL

    @Susi Sunshine - My hubby once thought it would be kewl to watch every Nightmare On Elmstreet movie in the week of Halloween. I can tell you my bloodpressure didn't go below 150 that week!

  6. Awesome! Sounds like September is going to be a great month for everybody.

  7. Wow...you iz busy. But sounds like a lot of fun. I'll come by to visit at your lair. *g*

  8. A horror story - you are so brave!!! I LOL'd at the cover comparison!!

    Looking forward to all of this!

  9. Lol, loving the name of that feature.
    And will so be here for blogefest

  10. Sounds like a busy and fun month, will be here for the party!

  11. @Danielle - yeah much is going around in blogoverse but love the buzz it gives :)

    @Armenia - Looking forward to seeing you!

    @Mandi - I just had to know if I could read a horror story again :) And I'm just a sucker for challenges, always ready, willing and able to put myself to the test.

    @Blodeuedd - YAY, love having you over :)

    @Marissa - and the party will be all the much more fun with you present!

  12. Should be interesting to read both your Double Dare reviews.
