Interview with Jus Accardo + Giveaway

Happy Monday, ladies and gents! We here at BLI are ready to start this new week off right with a visit from Jus Accardo, author of YA paranormal romance and urban fantasy.

We’re fortunate that Jus was gracious enough to answer our barrage of questions about her writerly life and her acclaimed YA series, Denizen.  Oh yeah, and some about her love of gaming and comic lore (which by itself already makes her freakin’ badass, in our book.) Please give her a warm welcome (and don’t forget to check out the end of the interview, for more giveaway goodness)!


Amanda: Jus can you please tell us a bit about yourself?

Book Blurb:

I am literally going to kill my mother.

To say I have mommy issues is putting it mildly. The woman who abandoned me has a lot of nerve to just saunter back into my life without warning and drop a bombshell of atomic proportions. I tried to kill her as way of resolving my inner Freudian issues, but my damned boyfriends stopped me. Spoilsports.

As if wanting to strangle my birth mother isn’t enough, once again, someone is messing with my life and a new player steps in to save me. Did I mention my dark knight is tall, gorgeous and fanged? Just don’t tell my lovers because apparently they’re not willing to share me with the undead.

The final showdown with the mysterious figure—also known as the major pain in my …

Book Blurb:

HUNTER GREEN will blow you away! It is an amazing story that will show you the world in a whole new light! It is focused on an incredible teenage girl, named Emily, who sadly loses her mother from a menacing, evil werewolf. Emily vows revenge and begins hunting the creatures down.

Guestpost: Scottish Historical Romance by Claire Robyns + Giveaway

Today we welcome Claire Robyns to Book Lovers Inc, her latest historical romance, The Devil of Jedburgh (lookout for our review which is also going up today), released on the 6th February 2012. Claire is here today to talk about the uniqueness of historical romance revolving around Scotland! Over to you Claire…

Fiction writers make stuff up. That’s what we do. We make up people, places, names, events and faces. And then we make up families to fit our people and their lives into. Except in Scottish Historical Romance. I don’t think I’ve read a Scottish historical with a fictional clan and I’m no exception to that rule. I’ve tried, I really have, once I even got my clan map out and figured out where to squeeze my fantasy clan into… and then I just couldn’t do it.

Then again, finding the perfect clan fit for my …
