Featured Author LM Pruitt & Giveaway!

 Blog with Bite would like to present

L.M. Pruitt has been reading and writing for as long as she can remember. A native of Florida, with a love of New Orleans, she has the uncanny ability to find humor in most things, and would probably kill a plastic plant. She is the author of Shades of Gray: A Jude Magdalyn Novel, the first in the Jude Magdalyn Series. She is currently at work on Shades of Desire, the second novel in the series, as well as New Moon Rising, a new series featuring Cari Gravier.
L.M. Pruitt's Blog.

When I sat down--or laid down, I can't really remember--to begin plotting Shades of Gray, I knew very few things for certain. What I did know was this:
                                -the main character, Jude Magdalyn
                                -there would be vampires
                                -it would be set in New Orleans

I'm going to focus on that last one, New Orleans. It would seen trite and cliched and terribly overdone to set a vampire story in New Orleans. Anne Rice did it. Sherilyn Kenyon did it. Probably who knows how many others (now there's a trivia question for you--but I digress) have done it. Why throw my hat into an overpopulated ring?

First, why not? I like a challenge. Second, New Orleans is quite possibly my favorite city in the world. Granted, I haven't been to all that many cities, but when the best way to describe a place is "second home", you don't need to visit a slew to make sure. Third, and most important (for world building purposes), New Orleans has an immense historical paranormal background.

Gather round the campfire. But you have to bring your own s'mores.

Most people know that the original colonists of New Orleans were less then reputable members of society--thieves, rapists, murderers, you get the drift. Despite their lack of social graces, they had the same desire that most men do. No, not a beer. A woman.

Seems like there'd be an easy fix--send over the less than reputable women. Except the women kept running away with the natives. So the French government as the brilliant idea to send over reputable middle class girls. Properly dowered by the Church, full parental blessing.

Again, seems like a great idea. But the ship made a stop before New Orleans. The local men there were all too happy to let those girls know what was in store for them--and it wasn't pretty. So when the ship reached New Orleans, there were no girls. But there was plenty of other stuff.

All the girls' belongings, conveniently transported in large, rectangular boxes bearing a strong resemblance to caskets, sat on the dock for weeks. Until the sisters of the Ursuline Convent took them and placed them on the third floor. Where they remained under lock and key and behind tightly closed shutters.

Three guesses what most people, even to this day, think are on the third floor. And it ain't linens.

Fascinating by itself. But what if those caskets weren't just boxes, but the vampire equivalent of Purgatory? I mean, what better place to keep the bogeyman than under Church protection. The shutters nailed shut with nails blessed by an archbishop. All bases covered.

But then what happens when one "prisoner" gets out, not once, but twice? And then he lets everyone else out?

To find the answer to those questions, you'll have to check out the sequel to Shades of Gray, Shades of Desire, available on Amazon November 2 and on Kindle by Halloween.

Thanks to Rachel and all the staff at blogwithbite. Don't forget to leave your name in the comment section for a chance to win a signed copy of Shades of Gray AND Shades of Desire. Happy Halloween--and happy reading!

Haunted Computer Books - Win a Kindle!

 “You’re not real…you’re dead!”
By Scott Nicholson

It’s easy as pumpkin pie.

You take a creature that has never lived, or has lived and died, or is waiting to be born. And then you make it human enough for readers to relate. Basically, we want monsters we recognize, but we also want them to be fantastic.

Us, but not us. Dark, but not too dark. And ultimately we get back to human characters that we furnish with fangs, claws, burial shrouds, and beady red eyes.

It’s what a friend of mine used to call the “forehead bump” syndrome in science fiction—it’s a lot easier to fabricate an alien if you slap some forehead bumps on a human face instead of creating an entirely new creature, with new rules, features, and mythos.

Sure, the vampire has gone through many permutations since Vlad the Impaler and Bram Stoker, and the old-school rules of garlic, holy water, and fear of sunlight get thrown out the door for the convenience of the writer. In my story “The Vampire Shortstop” from the YA collection Flowers, I blend traditional and futuristic elements, because though the vampire kid drinks blood (from a sports bottle) and obviously has to play in daylight, he also turns into a bat and can hypnotize other kids with his red eyes. Sparkly vampires are purely a manifestation of the 21st Century.

Our werewolves rarely obey the law of only coming furry under the light of the full moon, because otherwise the books and movies would become awfully dull while we kill 27 days of story time with character development, love triangles, and “werewolf struggling to live a normal life” between the savage slaughter we are anticipating.

Witches who used to be completely evil, cooking and eating children in fairy tales, until Glenda in Wizard of Oz and Samantha Stevens in “Bewitched” ruined it for all warty-nosed, toothless old hags forever. My reluctant teen witch Crystal in October Girls practices trailer-trash magic, based more on Appalachian folklore than European myth, and she’s not too happy about having to guard the portal to the afterlife. The novel Cursed I am co-writing with J.R. Rain has a family of witches that bungles along with crumbling old texts and toadstools.

Ghosts are a little easier, since there is no established mythos. As far as I can tell, all that’s required of ghostly characters is to be dead. In my supernatural novels, I often change my “ghost rules” with each book, sometimes making them mysterious (Drummer Boy) and sometimes both angelic and sinister (Speed Dating with the Dead). They can also be purely psychological suggestion, as used by Alexandra Sokoloff and Sarah Langan.

Shapeshifters are pretty wide open, and I have one as a sinister preacher/Golem in The Red Church. And sometimes they can blend, like the evil clown in Stephen King’s It. Mummies are fairly one-dimensional, since we all know from Scooby Doo that all we have to do is unwrap them and they’re pretty inept.

And zombies are pretty much plugged into any type of story these days—even as romantic objects, so even the living dead have to bear some resemblance to the living, if only to show us what we’re really like when you take away our caffeine, American Idol, and iPods.

But I love all our monsters. We get plenty of real life in our real lives, and it’s tiresome. I think we all deserve a vacation into places where we’re us but not us. It’s the Monster Mash.

What’s your favorite monster?

Scott Nicholson is author of 12 novels, including the paranormal thrillers The Red Church, Disintegration, Ashes, and October Girls . He’s also written four comic series, six screenplays, and more than 60 short stories. His web site is

Anyway, images go directly to Amazon, summaries are from Goodreads, take it away!

NevermoreNevermore by Kelly Creagh- Cheerleader Isobel Lanley is horrified when she is paired with Varen Nethers for an English project, which is due—so unfair—on the day of the rival game. Cold and aloof, sardonic and sharp-tongued, Varen makes it clear he’d rather not have anything to do with her either. But when Isobel discovers strange writing in his journal, she can’t help but give this enigmatic boy with the piercing eyes another look.

Soon, Isobel finds herself making excuses to be with Varen. Steadily pulled away from her friends and her possessive boyfriend, Isobel ventures deeper and deeper into the dream world Varen has created through the pages of his notebook, a realm where the terrifying stories of Edgar Allan Poe come to life.

As her world begins to unravel around her, Isobel discovers that dreams, like words, hold more power than she ever imagined, and that the most frightening realities are those of the mind. Now she must find a way to reach Varen before he is consumed by the shadows of his own nightmares.

His life depends on it.

NightshadeNightshade by Andrea Cremer- Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything--including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?

HaloHalo by Alexandra Adornetto- Nothing much happens in the sleepy town of Venus Cove. But everything changes when three angels are sent from heaven to protect the town against the gathering forces of darkness: Gabriel, the warrior; Ivy, the healer; and Bethany, a teenage girl who is the least experienced of the trio. They work hard to conceal their true identity and, most of all, their wings. But the mission is threatened when the youngest angel, Bethany, is sent to high school and falls in love with the handsome school captain, Xavier Woods. Will she defy the laws of Heaven by loving him? Things come to a head when the angels realize they are not the only supernatural power in Venus Cove. There′s a new kid in town and he′s charming, seductive and deadly. Worst of all, he′s after Beth. 

The Thirteenth Chime (A Sense of Truth) (Volume 1)The Thirteenth Chime by Emma Michaels- No one knew of its existence until it was removed from the attic upstairs.

In a beautiful house that overlooks the sea, an antique clock has the power to change the course of their lives.

The power the clock resonates will not only force Destiny and ex-boyfriend David on a journey into the depths of one man's mind long dead, but into the mind of a man filled with hatred and bent on revenge.

With the only clues to the nature of the clock having disappeared into the sea, Destiny and David must retrace the steps the man had taken into the darkness, before they fall prey to the trap he had set in motion over half a century ago.

Hatred never dies.

FirelightFirelight by Sophie Jordan- With her rare ability to breathe fire, Jacinda is special even among the draki—the descendants of dragons who can shift between human and dragon forms. But when Jacinda’s rebelliousness leads her family to flee into the human world, she struggles to adapt, even as her draki spirit fades. The one thing that revives it is Will, whose family hunts her kind. Jacinda can’t resist getting closer to him, even though she knows she’s risking not only her life but the draki’s most closely guarded secret.

Red Hot Fury (A Shades of Fury Novel)Red Hot Fury by Kasey Mackenzie- Hell hath nothing worse than a Fury scorned...

As a Fury, Marissa Holloway belongs to an Arcane race that has avenged wrongdoing since time immemorial. As Boston’s Chief Magical Investigator for the past five years, she’s doing what she was born to: solving supernatural crimes.

It’s far from business as usual when the body of one of Riss’s sister Furies washes up in Boston harbor. Riss discovers that the corpse’s identity has been magically altered, but as soon as she reports her findings, she’s immediately—and inexplicably—suspended from the her job. Then a human assassin makes an attempt on her life, and Riss starts to realize that someone may be trying to stir up strife between mortals and Arcanes.

When a Fury gets mad, she gets even, and Riss is determined to untangle this case. Without the support of the mortal PD, Riss turns to the one man she can trust to watch her back—shapeshifting Warhound Scott Murphy. But since Scott is also Riss’s ex, she’ll have to keep a tight leash on more than just the supernatural rage that feeds her power as they try to solve a murder—and stop a war…

Now Rhys Trahaearn has built a merchant empire on the power — and fear — of his name. And when a dead body is dropped from an airship onto his doorstep, bringing Detective Inspector Mina Wentworth into his dangerous world, he intends to make her his next possession.

Mina can’t afford his interest, however. Horde blood runs through her veins, and despite the nanotech enhancing her body, she barely scratches out a living in London society. Becoming Rhys’s lover would destroy both her career and her family, yet the investigation prevents her from avoiding him…and the Iron Duke’s ruthless pursuit makes him difficult to resist.

But when Mina uncovers the victim’s identity, she stumbles upon a conspiracy that threatens the lives of everyone in England. To save them, Mina and Rhys must race across zombie-infested wastelands and treacherous oceans — and Mina discovers the danger is not only to her countrymen as she finds herself tempted to give up everything to the Iron Duke.

Cold Magic (The Spiritwalker Trilogy)  Cold Magic by Kate Elliot- 'I was not a bard or a djeli or an historian or a scribe and I was certainly not a sage, but that didn't mean I wasn't curious ...'
Young Cat Barahal thinks she understands the world she lives in and her place in it, but in fact she is merely poised unaware on the brink of shattering events. Drawn into a labyrinth of politics involving blood, betrayal and old feuds, she will be forced to make an unexpected and perilous journey in order to discover the truth, not just about her own family but about an ancient secret lying at the heart of her world.

On the Edge (The Edge, Book 1)On the Edge by Ilona Andrews- Rose Drayton lives on the Edge, between the world of the Broken (where people drive cars, shop at Wal-Mart, and magic is a fairy tale) and the Weird (where blueblood aristocrats rule, changelings roam, and the strength of your magic can change your destiny). Only Edgers like Rose can easily travel from one world to the next, but they never truly belong in either.

Rose thought if she practiced her magic, she could build a better life for herself. But things didn't turn out how she planned, and now she works a minimum wage, off the books job in the Broken just to survive. Then Declan Camarine, a blueblood noble straight out of the deepest part of the Weird, comes into her life, determined to have her (and her power).

But when a terrible danger invades the Edge from the Weird, a flood of creatures hungry for magic, Declan and Rose must work together to destroy them, or the beasts will devour the Edge and everyone in it . . .

Enter Chess Putnam, a fully tattooed witch and freewheeling ghost hunter. She’s got a real talent for banishing the wicked dead. But Chess is keeping a dark secret: She owes a lot of money to a murderous drug lord named Bump, who wants immediate payback in the form of a dangerous job that involves black magic, human sacrifice, a nefarious demonic creature, and enough wicked energy to wipe out a city of souls. Toss in lust for a rival gang leader and a dangerous attraction to Bump’s ruthless enforcer, and Chess begins to wonder if the rush is really worth it. Hell, yeah.

Featured Review: Out of Time

Out of Time: A Paranormal RomanceTitle: Out of Time
Author: Monique Martin
Page Count: 390 pages
Format: E-book
Genre: paranormal romance, time travel
Review copy received from the author

Review by: Darkeva (

This novel begins with a bang right off the bat and draws you into the world right away. The first character we meet, Simon, predicts the death of another character, Elizabeth, through a startling nightmare, and apparently, it's not the first one of this kind that he's had. Their lives, as the novel goes on, are more interrelated than he could ever have imagined.

When we get to Elizabeth's point of view shortly thereafter, her portion starts out promisingly. Simon, aka Professor Cross, is an instructor of Occult Studies, which Elizabeth is thoroughly interested in. Her descriptions of how hypnotic his movements are, and how he enthrals the (mostly female) students are interesting, because it sets him up in a way that you wouldn't necessarily expect.

And who among us doesn't love a sexy English accent? (Spike or Bones, anyone?) ;-)

Cross' dialogue is effective, and his humour comes across naturally, as with when he says, "Purge Tom Cruise from your malleable little minds" about the misconceptions that vampires are overly sentimentalized in today's media. He's a funny guy with retorts that have shades of Giles and Blackadder, which was delightful to read ;-) However, despite the overall sexiness/humour, at times his dialogue did come off as a bit stilted, even for someone who's English (and he tends to overuse phrases such as "What in God's name..." and "What the devil...", etc). But his inherent prudishness was mostly a delight to read, especially when he conjugates the Latin verb "consummate" to take his mind off anything sexual.

Elizabeth's observations, too, are amusing when necessary, as she guesses that Professor Cross probably imported cobblestones from England to trip young Americans ;-)

Possibly because of the formatting, there are a few areas where the point of view shifts from Elizabeth to Simon that come off as jarring because there's no division, but once you figure out that there's been a switch, it's not such a big deal.

One of the best things about the book is that although it's classified as paranormal romance, it definitely doesn't focus just on the burgeoning love story between Cross and Elizabeth. It has a lot of interesting supernatural elements that will appeal to readers who enjoy rare relics that have strange, unclear significances.

The plot picks up within the first few chapters and establishes the book as a time travel story, which definitely heightens the excitement. They end up in 1920s New York, right before the stock market crash of 1929--also the era of prohibition and gangsters, which definitely makes this more dangerous.

And apart from Simon and Elizabeth's story, there's a subplot that focuses on a gangster, King, who is determined to control the machinations of fate not only for himself but for the city of New York, as well.

In terms of the love scenes, they're a good balance between being intense enough that the reader will savour them but not over-the-top or too explicit.

And actually, one of the things that I enjoyed most about the novel was the lack of vampires--until the latter chapters ;-) (kidding) It actually made sense, the vampire is a well-developed character, and it fit with the clever twist toward the end.

Overall, there are a lot of exciting twists and turns in this enjoyable and readable novel, and if you're a fan of time travel, 1920s gangsters, or just a fan of a compelling story, I encourage you to buy "Out of Time." You'll be pleasantly surprised at how good it is ;-)

Rating: 3 out of 4

Featured Review: Halloween Fantasies by: Katie Salidas

Halloween Fantasies by: Katie Salidas
Publisher: Rising Sign Books
Author Blog

Synopsis: Touted as the sexiest party of the year, the annual Halloween Fantasy Ball is the one place a girl can let loose and succumb to her wildest fantasies. 

Disguised as a sexy vampire huntress, Sasha captures the attention of Dante, a real life creature of the night. For Sasha, meeting bona fide vampire is enough to fulfill one of her life long fantasies. She’s ready to go home a happy woman. 

But Dante has other plans. It is after all, a night of fantasies, and he has a few of his own to share. 

Review: Halloween Fantasies by Katie Salidas is the perfect example of a feel good erotic short story to get you in the mood for a holiday. After reading this story I wanted to go find a costume and my own hunky vampire. Katie Salidas writes beautifully, the story flows perfectly and it is uninterrupted by gratuitous scenes or characters.

I like the pure masculine feel of Trevor and his brother and I enjoyed the heat that they both brought the uh...bed. I think that the scenes in this story were pretty realistic (well, vampires, twins, and menage aside). This is a nice spicy short story meant to make you smile, feel good, and get into the holiday spirit and it does everything it promises and more. I will be on the lookout for more work by this author, I really enjoyed reading her work.

4/4 Rating

Feature Review: Halloween Fantasies

Review of Halloween Fantasies by Melissa from Books and Things.

Sasha excited to go to this years Halloween Fantasy Ball is hoping to have a thrilling time.When her costume is destroyed, her makeshift costume of sexy vampire hunter helps her snag more than one fantasy that night. She ends up meeting a real vampire, Dante, who finds the irony of her costume too alluring. He can’t let this chance go by without indulging in some fantasies of his own. As the night goes on she finds herself willingly at his mercy and then later his twin joins the party.

This hot m/f/m fantasy is only 68 pages, but I feel the characters are well formed and interesting. Dante is a very sexy alpha male with very specific ideas of what he wants to do to Sasha. And as much as he is concerned with her pleasure, I did feel that it was mostly one sided and would have liked to see Sasha more forward with some of her fantasies. I also felt that the first “go round” was at times a bit awkward, but that could have been intentional as Dante was trying to pull Sasha out of herself.

I give this book 2/4 stars. It’s a fun erotic novella. It also makes a great quick read for those looking for just a little somethin’ somethin’ for the season.

On a side note, I can totally see Stewart Townsend as Dante.*fans self* I think he can be much more alpha male than when he played Lestat in that unfortunate film.

BWB Q&A with Erika Knudsen & Giveaway

Blog with Bite would like to extend a warm Halloween welcome to author Erika Knudsen. Ms. Knudsen is the author of  Beyond the Threshold of Death, Resurrected and her up coming third novel Awakened, which is scheduled for release in November. Get to know Ms. Knudsen in this exclusive BWB interview!

Giveaway: Ms. Knudsen will be giving away a SIGNED copy of  Beyond the Threshold of Death to one lucky commenter.

BWB:  Can you give our readers a little information about yourself?

Erika: The vampire genre has always been a love of mine and the deep interest in the topic is what led me to write my first book fourteen years ago.  Having always possessed a great imagination I never found it difficult to submerse myself into my characters and bring them to life.  Not only does the vampire genre interest me but the theme of ghosts, witches and all things supernatural capture my intrigue as well.  I find the writing process in whole a way to release my thoughts and emotions on humanity, morality and my own intrigue with the paranormal.  I live in a hamlet north-west of Edmonton with my husband and dog.  Writing is my over-all passion in life.

BWB:  Can you tell us about Beyond the Threshold of Death in your own words.

Erika:  Beyond the Threshold of Death begins in Old World Ireland, 1795.  Deirdra O’Dea, who is ailing from an unknown fatal illness, her father fearing for his daughter's health, unknowingly hires a vampire named Mylana to care for her. Instantly, a friendship blossoms between the two women. Seeing the pain Deirdra is in, Mylana offers her immortality, of which she accepts...
Almost two centuries later, Deirdra finds herself in the middle of an unearthly upheaval. Events waged over a millennia beforehand have reawakened the fury of an ancient Blood God, whose objectives involve the complete obliteration of the vampire race.

BWB:  There is a follow-up book to Beyond the Threshold of Death called Resurrected. Would you recommend reading the first book to fully understand the second, or are they stand alone?

Erika:  It’s not a necessity to have read the first installment before picking up Resurrected.  It is a separate story, yet connected.  It takes place four years after the end of Beyond the Threshold of Death  You’ll just get the fuller, bigger picture if you read BTTOD then Resurrected.

Resurrected (Vampire Saga)BWB:  How did you decide on a vampire as one of your main paranormal characters?

Erika:  They say, write what you know.  Well, I don’t know any vampires per say, but, I love the genre, so I write about what I love.  Vampires have always been alluring to me, even as a kid.  I can’t remember a time where I wasn’t thinking about the things that ‘go bump in the night’.  It was only natural that I’d work in that genre when I started writing.

BWB:  What led you in the direction of the paranormal genre?

Erika:  Again, it’s just a natural extension of my curiosity for everything supernatural.  It’s a genre that can take your imagination in so many directions and has such a rich and deep history, from folklore to mythology.  There is so much to choose from and work with, and also, to intermix with already well-known genre’s such as vampires.

BWB:  Any favourite Halloween memories you would like to share with BWB readers?

Erika:  When I was seven, we had just moved from Kitchener, Ontario to St. Albert, Edmonton. (Canadian cities)  Only a few weeks later it was Halloween and I was so excited to wear my costume and go-trick-or-treating.  However, the weather went from balmy to absolutely stupid cold {minus 30 degrees Celsius} in just a matter of a few days.  It rarely got that cold in southern Ontario.  When I went to go out with dad trick-or-treating, that’s when the battle with mom began.  Suffice to say mom won and I had to wear my snow suite under my costume.  I was so upset.  You couldn’t tell that I was a cowgirl at all!  Barely five houses later, I didn’t care and I wanted to go back home, it was just too bloody cold! The joys of Halloween in Canada!

BWB:  Is there anything you would like to share with us, other appearances, or news?

Erika:  My third book, Awakened, is going to be launched November 20th.  There will be an official launch party as well as contests which will be held at my blog: and at Eris Publishing’s website: http://www.erispublishing.

For our readers: What is a great Halloween memory from when you were a kid that you would like to share?
