VBB Weekly – 03.31.2014

Lately things have been all kinds of busy and exciting. Last weekend we held the Austin Book Fest event here in Austin, Texas and it was absolutely awesome! We had 30+ authors come to town and over 430 fans showed up to make this probably the funnest event I’ve ever attended. Thank you to the amazing authors who showed up excited and ready to go… to the volunteers who helped make this event run flawlessly and to the fans who made the room come alive with an addictive energy that had us all reveling in the high of it! Here are some pics from the event. I took the personal pics, but all other pics were taken by Brad Self of Self Image Photography!

Also, my next bi-weekly column in USA Today’s HEA blog is up and this time I am so excited to exclusively reveal the super sexy cover of Alpha by Jasinda Wilder!!! Full of suspense and steam, this is already creating quite a stir! Check out the cover (designed by Sarah Hansen of Okay Creations), watch a video from Jasinda and read the first-released excerpt from the book, which will be out April 29th!!!

Must Reads of the Week

Welcome to my new obsession. The men of the Marked. I’m talking bold, individual, tatted up hotties with big hearts that support each other come what may and I simply cannot get enough. Fans of Kristen Ashley need to check these books out, I think they have a similar feel, but they’re executed in a completely different and fresh way. These books are addictive. Sinfully sexy. Vibrant and bold. And full of the stuff that makes us swoon! I can’t recommend them enough. I was lucky enough to read an ARC of Nash and let me tell you, it rocked my socks off. Get to clicking these if you haven’t yet!

Each book can be read as a standalone, but I highly encourage you to read each one as they all feature connected characters and even progress earlier story lines. Nash will be out April 29th. The fifth book in the series is Rowdy and the sixth will be Asa. Click the images below to order.

Rule Jet romeNash

She’s got a new series kicking off in June too entitled Welcome to the Point. It’s a grittier, darker, super sexy series that starts with Shane Baxter, our dangerous hero in Better When He’s Bad. Pre-order here.
