We are excited to have Shona Husk here to talk about KISS OF THE GOBLIN PRINCE, the second book in the Shadowlands series (available on May 1, 2012 by Sourcebooks Casablanca), specifically why goblins are better than shapeshifters and vampires. Julia reviewed KISS OF THE GOBLIN PRINCE calling it, “a wonderful Paranormal Romance, [but]strongly weighted towards Urban Fantasy as well. ” And thanks to Shona’s publisher, you can win a copy! Details below.

Goblins Rule, Shapeshifters Shed, and Vampires Drool!


Shona Husk

Now don’t get me wrong I love a sexy brooding Vampire as much as the next gal, I’ve even written sexy rock star Vamps for Ellora’s Cave. But how many times can you be bitten before anemia becomes an issue and your friends start to question the bruises on your neck, wrists and other areas. Also let’s face the reality that forever is a really, really, long time, and while you might love him for the first 200 years after that will his sullen angst still be hot or just plain annoying? Plus that trip to Fiji is out because of the sunshine. In the long term a relationship with a Vampire is probably not going to work.

Cover Art Coverage: 13 New Titles!


Despite the unlucky number, this crop of covers was particularly nice.  Only two covers managed to tip all the way to a thumbs down, and neither of them unanimously.  Of course, Abigail and I both started our cover art perusal with these gems… which is enough to put anyone in a good mood.

Cover Art Coverage: 20 New Titles!

See all the covers now after the jump! (Yay Julia for rebuilding the post)

This week several familiar series get new additions and Jeri Smith-Ready’s Shade trilogy gets a complete series make-over.  Things get a little meta as we comment on a cover that features a blurb from All Things Urban Fantasy (the kind of surprise that just makes our day), and my feelings about Photo-shopped tattoos finally spin out of control.  Not that I’m against them wholesale, but I think I like them better when the cover artist doesn’t even try to pretend they’re real.  Other than some wicked Gena Showalter butterflys and the gorgeous ink on AFTERLIGHT, I’m having a hard time coming up with a good example.  Can anyone suggest a series that “does tatts right”?

No other love has burned so bright.
Life can change in an instant, and no one understands that better than Aura. It’s been almost a year since her boyfriend tragically died. She’s finally letting go of Logan’s violet-hued ghost, but not her search to uncover the truth about her past.As the first in a generation that can see ghosts, Aura is convinced that she has a connection to the Shift. She’s trusted Zachary, ever patient and ever by her side, with all that she knows. But when the government threatens his life in an attempt to learn Aura’s secrets, she will stop at nothing to protect herself and the one she loves...even if that means betraying her own heart.

“TA-DA! You thought you were getting just the SHINE cover today, didn't you? I'm excited to present the brand-new look for the entire SHADE trilogy! “

Julia’s ThoughtsThumbs up
Abigail’s ThoughtsThumbs up
Click on the Fictitious Delicious link to read Smith-Ready’s reaction to the cover redesign, I like her breakdown of how Aura grows throughout the series and the “mood” Smith-Ready would like for each cover. I was never a fan of the original covers, so I’m thrilled that this amazing series is finally getting a design overhaul. Love the bright yellow colors & just the overall smoky effect.

Shona Husk gives a new spin on the Beauty and the Beast romance in THE GOBLIN KING and fulfilled all of Abigail’s daydreams about David Bowie’s Goblin King from Labyrinth.  Either one of those alone would be enough to move THE GOBLIN KING to the top of my TBR pile and the combination makes me wish we were allowed to join our own giveaways!  Shona is offering two copies of THE GOBLIN KING, so two lucky winners will get a chance to read the book that Abigail said has “Fresh mythology, wonderful character redemption, and the power of true love.” See details below.

Roan on The Black Shuck 
Shona Husk

I’ve been an urban legend for some time, and I could tell you stories of the goblin’s Wild Ride through your word each winter solstice and the havoc they create while you think it’s a storm and little else—but I’m tired of talking about gold and goblins after so many centuries.

In fact there is something much scarier out there. Something that roams your world without restriction and if you see it say a prayer to your God as it will be the last thing you do.
