Months and months ago I talked about the forthcoming NBC series, Hannibal, based on the characters created by Thomas Harris.

Hostile Questions: Zoe Archer
Posted by: Daniel Kraus

Zoe Archer knows how to mix it up. This ain’t plain old la-la romance she’s writing. We’re talking paranormal historical romance (Hellraisers series).

In fact, I’m betting you could put any […]

Posted by: Sarah Hunter

L.A. is where it isn’t 10 degrees, right? In case you haven’t guessed, we’ve passed the happily tramping-through-the-snow phase in Chicago’s winter to the point where any place warmer than the temperature at which moisture from your breath freezes your scarf to your glasses starts to look mighty appealing.

Book Trailer Thursday: Pride and Prejudice and Kitties

Valentines may come and go, “Love always!” might become “Yo, I want my Sega back,” and the grossest chocolates will most certainly die a stale death in their heart-shaped box assortment, but Book Trailer Thursday aims to give you a gift on this 2-14 you won’t soon forget.

Hostile Questions: Megan Hart
Posted by: Daniel Kraus

I’m sure it’s oft been noted that Megan Hart has the perfect name for a writer of romance. “Hart,” as we know, brings to mind “heart,” that emblem of love and passion. And “Megan,” as we know, is an ancient Norse word meaning “Writer of a Whole Bunch of Books Sporting Covers of Men and […]

In keeping with last week’s theme, today’s trailer features another winning title: Girlchild by Tupelo Hassman picked up an Alex Award last week, and was named on Booklist‘s Editor’s Choice: Adult Books for Young Adults list for 2012. This post might count for one big #humblebrag, because I reviewed and loved Hassman’s debut way back […]

Hostile Questions: Cara McKenna
Posted by: Daniel Kraus
