There's a little story here for me to share. As you probably know, the Morganville Vampire series is a favorite for ALL OF LIFE, and trumps the pleasure of new book smell, double chocolate chocolate chip cookies, and Pretty Little Liars. Maybe even fictional kissing and giveaway winning. So, of course, when I saw the email in my inbox inquiring about blog tour participation, I nearly peed my brand new pair of ankle jeans a la Forever 21 in the middle of my GEO101 class. Not that appalling, no, but it would've been uber embarrassing. Then I forgot about it. I blame my professor. When it finally sunk in my head after being home for several hours, I responded as quickly as my pinkies would allow me... only to find out there were no more spots available. My heart sunk down to my stomach and then landed out my rear end. The moral of the story? Always answer your emails, even if you have to ninja your way passed your unfairly observant professor to the dark, cruddy recesses of the girl's bathroom. Oh. And never send me any either. BECAUSE APPARENTLY MY RESPONSE TIME SUCKS. In this one area of my life, I feel compelled to point out.
For years, the human and vampire residents of Morganville, Texas, have managed to co-exist in peace. But now that the threat to the vampires has been defeated, the human residents are learning that the gravest danger they face is the enemy within…Listen, all you international bros and gals, don't feel too putout. You can always enter my giveaway for Carnival of Souls, if it'll make you feel better than the combined forces of Ben & Jerry residing in your freezer. But, for everyone else who was smart enough to endure blistering winds and battle back sea monsters to stay here in the US for the duration of this giveaway at least, you can win a copy of Bitter Blood by Rachel Caine. Which is awesome for you, as a fan, because I know you're broke. So be happy about The Free Thing!
Thanks to the eradication of the parasitic creatures known as the draug, the vampires of Morganville have been freed of their usual constraints. With the vampires indulging their every whim, the town’s human population is determined to hold on to their lives by taking up arms. But college student Claire Danvers isn’t about to take sides, considering she has ties to both the humans and the vampires.
To make matters worse, a television show comes to Morganville looking for ghosts, just as vampire and human politics collide. Now, Claire and her friends have to figure out how to keep the peace without ending up on the nightly news… or worse.
Book 1: From the author of the popular Weather Warden series comes the debut of an exciting new series set in Morganville, Texas, where you would be well advised to avoid being out after dark.
College freshman Claire Danvers has had enough of her nightmarish dorm situation. When Claire heads off-campus, the imposing old house where she finds a room may not be much better. Her new roommates don't show many signs of life, but they'll have Claire's back when the town's deepest secrets come crawling out, hungry for fresh blood.
