5 for Friday - August 3

It's finally Friday and the closer I get to the Authors After Dark convention, the slower time seems to be moving.  I'm headed in Tuesday to begin my week of debauchery celebrating the love of booze books with fellow bloggers, readers, and authors.  I will endeavor to tweet often and take lots of pictures.  I've got a list ready of great drinks and restaurants for people to try if they're new to the city.  If you want any suggestions, just let me know!

5. Kristen Calliahan has revealed the cover for Winterblaze, book three in the Darkest London series.


There is no blurb yet, but she did say in her USA Today/ HEA article that "Poppy may be happily married to London Police Inspector Winston Lane, but a demon is about to put their love to the test."  (*swoon*) Winterblaze is set to release February 26th.

4. I've got another Moira Rogers freebie to report. If you haven't tried their Southern Arcana series, you can start at the beginning! Crux is free at Amazon (and Barnes and Noble) for a limited time.

Jackson Holt makes a decent living as a private investigator in New Orleans, home of one of the largest underground supernatural populations in the United States. He and his partners have never met a case they couldn't crack...until a local bar owner asks him to do a little digging on her newest hire.

New Orleans is the fourth destination in as many months for Mackenzie Brooks, a woman on the run from a deranged stalker. After all, any man who shows up on her doorstep claiming to be her destined lover has more than a few screws loose. But crazy doesn't explain why he always finds her no matter how far she runs.

When her well-meaning boss puts a PI on her case, Mackenzie comes face to face with the incredible truth: magic is real, and whatever spell has kept her hidden and separate from the paranormal world is rapidly deteriorating.

With time running out, she has no choice but to trust Jackson as he struggles to uncover the truth of her past-and her destiny. 

If you like it, there are four other installments out in the series so far. Book 5, Impulse, releases September 4th.

3. Harlequin is giving some Megan Hart books a makeover.  A slew of her erotic/powerful/wrenching stories are getting new covers. Check it out:


Any Megan Hart fans out there? Do you like the new covers better or the old ones?

2. Looking to get lucky? Maybe you need to pay a visit to Olympic Village.

According to ESPN, there's a shit-ton of hanky panky going on among the competitors. Think I'm exaggerating? The article linked above goes on to say that Olympic organizers have ordered 100,000 condoms to keep up with the, er, rigorous demand.  The best quote comes from a former Olympian who talks about how athletes have a chance to win gold medals and sleep with hot guys. Win-win.  I guess I should have taken gymnastics. 

1. And finally... you may not know this about me, but I am a closet horror movie fan.  I don't get to watch as many as I used to with two little ones in the house, but the impulse is still there. I had a little squee moment when I stumbled over this trailer for the new Silent Hill movie.


Bad ass!! (Is it just me or does the girl look like a dead ringer for Michelle Williams?)  I'd like to just spend a day in a dark house with a bottle of wine and watch all of these movies back-to-back.  The zombie nurses are my favorites.

Don't judge!

XOXO,
Jen

Oooh...sign me up for Silent Hill. I love to watch scary movies myself. I'll have to send this trailer to my guy best friend. We always watch these kinds of movies together. My GF's won't watch them with me. Lol!

Hope you have a great time at AAD!
