Less than two months to go before STAKES & STILETTOS is released! I can’t wait! I feel like I wrote this book more than a year ago. Hey, I did! The deadline on it was actually January 1, 2008, believe it or not. So much has happened since then. I’ve written three (or four?) books since then, but I have to say S&S is probably my favorite of the Immortality Bites series. And I’m not just saying that because it’s my next release. Really. I’m hoping reviews will be good on it — but at the end of the day (don’t you just love that expression?) I’m very pleased with this book, as well as the last vamp book, TALL, DARK & FANGSOME, and gave it my all. Hopefully readers and fans of the previous books will be pleased.
I’ve received a couple of reviews on the book so far — one was super early so I held off on sharing it until now.
Jen’s Reviews says “Michelle Rowen’s books never fail to thrill. Her fourth (and still-fresh) installment of the Immortality Bites series, Stakes and Stilettos, is delightfully charming and keeps the wonderful mixture of tongue-in-cheek (is that tongue-in fang?) humor and well-fleshed-out plot that made her earlier books so entertaining. The story keeps you guessing, always twisting in unexpected ways.” More here
Coffee Time Romance (review won’t be on their site until closer to release date so I’m quoting the whole thing) says: “After centuries of living and multiple near-death experiences, Thierry de Bennicoeur is finally finding life worth living. His cold and emotionless exterior is slowing thawing with the help of a certain beautiful young fledgling.
Sarah Dearly, vampires extraordinaire? Not hardly, but she is trying really, really hard to feel normal despite her newfound existence.
Life as a vampire may not be what Sarah envisioned for her future, but with Thierry by her side, she feels confident that normality is possible. However this confidence is sorely shaken. Time and time again she is certain that the worst is behind her only to be blindsided at every turn. She may have finally found herself in a situation that even a master vampire cannot help her out of.
How many times do we find ourselves suffering the effects of foot-in-mouth-disease? Hopefully not as severely as poor Sarah, but she handles it all with the goofy sarcastic wit that we have come to love. Her life is bi-polar in the extreme and makes for a rollercoaster ride of excitement for the reader. You will be swept up in her emotional tilt-a-whirl from page one, and be begging for the next ride to begin.”
I’m really hoping I’ll get the go ahead to share the cover art for TALL, DARK & FANGSOME this week. Hands down, it’s my favorite cover yet.
