News Briefs

I apologize for the lengthy delay between posts, Peeps. I’ve been very busy with school (in fact I have an exam tomorrow that I should be studying for at this very moment) and I lost my dad 10 days ago so I’ve also been tied up with family matters. I’m determined to get Paranormal Bites back on track just as soon as I can but in the mean time here are some news briefs to help catch us up…

 

Great news for fans of Melissa de la Cruz’s Witches of East End! The series is currently in pilot production with the Lifetime TV Network. If the network likes the pilot, it will be picked up as a regular series!

Nalini Singh’s Kiss of Snow just won a Gold award for it’s German edition “Lockruf Des Verlangens” in the Fantasy section of the Leserpreis-Die besten Bucher 2012.

Royal House of Shadows Live Chat

Chat with the authors of the Royal House of Shadows series – Gena Showalter, Nalini Singh, Jessica Andersen, and Jill Monroe – this Thursday (September 29th) at 9:00 pm EST in the Knight Agency Chat Room.

To chat simply enter any combination of user name and password. Note: Your computer must be Java enabled to chat!

 

Lord of the Vampires by Gena Showalter (8/23/2011)

Gena Showalter, Lord of the Vampires, Royal House of Shadows

Once upon a time…the Blood Sorcerer vanquished the kingdom of Elden. To save their children, the queen scattered them to safety and the king filled them with vengeance. Only a magical timepiece connects the four royal heirs… and time is running out….

Nicolai the Vampire was renowned for his virility, but in a twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” had become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina—stripped of his precious timepiece and his memory. All that remained was a primal need for freedom, revenge—and the only woman who could help him.

In her dreams, a wanton vampire called to Jane Parker, drawing her to his dark sexuality and his magical realm. But for a human, all was not a fairy tale in Delfina. Jane was the key to Nicolai’s memory… but exploiting her meant dooming the only mortal he craved.

 

Lord of Rage by Jill Monroe (9/27/2011)

Jill Monroe, Lord of Rage, Royal House of Shadows

Princess Breena had been dreaming of her warrior lover when she was ripped from her Elden castle and thrown into a strange, dangerous realm. Lost and alone, she prayed for survival and vengeance for her stolen kingdom. She found both in a woodland cottage… in a dark bear of a man.

The golden-haired beauty had eaten his food and slept in his bed when Osborn found her. Though he wanted to awaken his virgin princess to carnal pleasures, Breena wanted more—including his warrior skills. Skills the once-legendary mercenary had long buried. Now Osborn had a choice—risk his life or deny his princess her fairy-tale ending.

 

Lord of the Wolfyn by Jessica Andersen (10/25/2011)

Jessica Andersen, Lord of the Wolfyn, Twin Targets, Royal House of Shadows

For practical Reda Weston, nothing could explain how reading a sexy version of Little Red Riding Hood catapulted her into another realm—face-to-fang with the legendary wolf-creature who seduced women. A wolf who transformed into a dark, virile man…

Dayn cursed the Sorcerer that turned him wolfyn and damned him to a lonely fate. As a beast, he mated with women to gain strength. Strength he needed to save Elden. But as a man, he craved Reda’s heated, sizzling touch. With little time left, Dayn had to either embrace his wolf to save his kingdom… or fight it to save his woman.

 

Lord of the Abyss by Nalini Singh (11/22/2011)

Nalini Singh, Lord of the Abyss, Desert Warrior, Royal House of Shadows

As the dark Lord who condemns souls to damnation in the Abyss, Micah is nothing but a feared monster wrapped in impenetrable black armor. He has no idea he is the last heir of Elden, its last hope. Only one woman knows—the daughter of his enemy.

Liliana is nothing like her father, the Blood Sorcerer who’d cursed Micah. She sees past Micah’s armor to the prince inside. A prince whose sinful touch she craves. But first she has to brave his dark, dangerous lair and help him remember. Because they only have till midnight to save Elden.

Chat with Christine Feehan and J.R. Ward Tonight

via JR Ward

Friday 16th Sept. 2011 at 8pm EST

 

Chat Set up, Itinerary and Rules:

Before the chat starts, you will need to be aware of the following –

Chat room link – http://client0.addonchat.com/sc.php?id=345862&s

The chat runs on Java software, you must have this enabled to access.  Feel free to try the link before chat time and if you need to update Java it will say.

Please note that downloading of Java is controlled by the manufacturers of it and not us, use all the safeguards you normally would when downloading from the Internet.

Chat will start at 8pm Eastern Standard Time – to locate the time in your time zone, go here.

Until the room is opened it will be locked by password.  You cannot get in but at the chat time the password will be removed and you can then access.

 

User names and personal passwords:

Choose a user name but DO NOT use your email address as it will not only be visible but using it can cause your account to be spammed or possibley hacked.  The password on the main screen is one you choose and can use each time – note it is NOT the password for the chat room.

 

Iitinerary and rules:

When the room is opened, you will be allowed a short period of free chat with each other.  However, when the chat starts you will be asked to only speak if selected for a question or during intermission.

This is because the chat moves quickly and it will allow the authors and staff to see questions and answer them accordingly.

Anyone who repeatedly shouts out during the question and answer session will be kicked from the chat, and if needs be banned from the room – which will also affect future chats.

When the chat moderator (Twisted) asks for questions simply type ??? and he will get names and make a list.  Each person will normally only be allowed to ask 1 question per author, to maximize fairness.

Please note that we endeavor to get the names of all wishing to ask a question but we are only human, so if you are overlooked it is not personal, it just gets very busy and moves quickly.

When Twisted’s list is full, he will say and then we will do the question and answer session with the author(s.)

Intermissions will be given at which point attendees can talk freely but when the Q&A recommences, then silence will be asked for again with the exclusion of making the next list of questions and then the asking of those questions.

A free chat period will also be allowed at the end.

The chat room WILL NOT kick you if you are idle, so you do not need to refresh or type to remain in the room to read.
