From the moment Hannah Sanders arrived in town, she felt there was something wrong.

Alot of houses were for sale, and the town seemed infected by an unearthly quiet. And then, on Hannah's first day of classes, she ran into a group of cheerleaders-the most popular girls in school.The odd thing was that they were nearly identical in their appearance. Blonde, beautiful, and deathly pale.

But Hannah wants desperately to fit in-regardless of what her friend Lukas is telling her: If she doesn't watch her back, she's going to be blonde and popular and dead-just like all the other zombies in this town . . .


Brian James is the author of several notable books including Pure Sunshine and Dirty Liar. He lives in a small town in upstate New York that may or may not be overrun with zombies. He is currently researching the matter…very carefully.

About this book:

About This Book
A startling, uncompromising novel by the author of Pure Sunshine.

Elizabeth is a pickpocket and thief living on the edge in New York City. She and her foster sister, Alexi, are living with Sandra — a modern-day Fagin who takes in foster children and then forces them to steal things for her.

Even though she's sick of it, Elizabeth doesn't really question her life until Sandra takes in a third foster child, this time a boy. Dune is a completely lost soul, and Elizabeth begins to see the limits of her life. Sandra is not going to let her go easily — but Elizabeth knows she has to find a way out.

With brutal honesty and striking lyricism, Brian James has created a character you'll never forget, trapped in a situation that's frighteningly real.

So there you have it! I hope I brought you a little something new too! Thanks again to Brian James!


Until next time...Happy Reading!

Interview with SANDY ELLEN PATSY!

Well, first and foremost, I'd like to say hello to our guest author Sandy Ellen Pasty who has written the much talked about "Power of Pussy"! It's the story of a woman who let us all read about her steamy relationship without holding anything back!

Princess - Welcome Sandy and I hope you are having a wonderful day thus far. As you know, we're here to talk about your book, the "Power of Pussy". Why don't you start by telling us a little bit about yourself?

Sandy - Thank you for the warm welcome and I really love the blog!

Princess - Awe...that was quite sweet of you to say, but let's not keep your fans waiting! How about just a *little* bit of Sandy Ellen Patsy?

Sandy - Well, the "Power of Pussy" is my debut book. The first book I've ever written. My fans like you are what keep my book doing well! I'd like to thank you all for that and if you haven't given it a try, please don't let the title scare you off! I heard it has been, it's very tastefully done and full of juicy information and secrets all women should know!

Princess - Sandy, I have to agree with you, I have heard from a few women that they were reluctant to read your book, but after reading it and loving it, I have to say that it is tastefully done and it's all about a relationship between two people and what happens when reality gets in the way! Anything else we should know?

Sandy - Oh yes, I have written many commercials and there's the fact over 30 years of selling TV Network-affiliated air time.....wait, some of those might have seemed just SLIGHTLY exaggerated! LOL

Princess - *giggling* What are the characters like in your book?

Sandy - Well the characters in the book are myself and a man that I love in an unworkable, ridiculous relationship. If I had my choice, I would wish my character was fictional and have sworn to never be one of those people again. Now I've changed. What I held to be true in my first book will be refuted in my second. Yes, this means a sequel! I've been working on my personality!

Princess - WOW Sandy, a sequel! You sound MUCH different than you did in your book and I believe that you have been working on your personality! You sound much more confident! Who would you say influences you on a typical writing day?

Sandy - Hmm...this is a really good one! I'd say what influences me on a typical writing day is a event or an idea spawned from every day life... like for example, here's a good one: Last night on National Geographic, I watched the 911 special. I am still floored at the incredible ignorance of the FBI and CIA. I don't care, they can come and arrest me! What I had missed on my first viewing was what I feel is the strongest motivation of all; Pussy! The promise of sex with 72 virgins made me come out of my chair. Don't worry, that will be expounded upon in my next book!

Princess - That sounds interesting and I guess I'll have to wait just like everyone else to see what's going to happen! Was that a little teaser? (LOL)

Sandy - LOL! Yes, I believe it was!!

Princess - Alright Sandy, before saying goodbye to you for now, I have just one last question. I'd like to thank you for stopping by and I hope you have had as much fun as I have. When you get writer's block, what do you do to get rid of it?

Sandy - And before I answer this, I would like to say that yes, I've had a blast and I hope to be back with my next book! As for your last question, I don't get writer's block. If I don't have an idea, I don't write. If I'm trying to come with an idea, it sounds stale and contrived. I have to embrace what I'm writing.

Princess - Sandy WELCOMES all email and you should send it to Would you like to visit her blog and leave a comment? That's easy as pie...the link can be found here POWER OF PUSSY and if you'd like to be her friend on myspace, just follow this link - SANDY PATSY - 63 - Female - Kansas - . I say visit there now, she's having a contest through Author Island and it involves jewelry! (A necklace) I can't thank you enough for stopping by Sandy and I wish you Success with the follow up to your first book!
Thanks again for taking the time to stop by! I miss you all!


Until next time...have fun reading!

Fugue by Rick R. Reed (Adults Only on this one)

I just wanted to let everyone know that this week, Rick R. Reed is releasing FUGUE through AMBER QUILL PRESS.

This is from the publisher since it isn't out yet (Other than the fact I can't wait to get it), Rick usually writes horror and I have every one, but I have to say, this made me quiver a bit too. So, here's what we have so far...

ISBN-13: 978-1-60272-382-5 (Electronic)

Who is the master and who is the slave?

In Rick R. Reed’s tortuously sexy short story, you might not always know. Fugue takes the brave reader into the dungeon playroom of a master and his boy. It’s the kind of place where “darkness skitters into corners, hiding in shadows where the walls disappear.” A boy is chained to the pipes along the ceiling. Hooded, he can only experience the sensations his master delivers with his whips, fingers, tongue...

But in the boy’s mind, a dream state takes him places even the master could not imagine...places where the established pecking order is turned upside down. As he’s being deliciously whipped, tantalized, and tortured, the boy takes a mental journey on a late-night train where his adventures are even more raw and erotic than what goes on in this very dungeon.

Come along for the Fugue...and answer for yourself the question: who is the master and who is the slave?

Genres: Gay / Contemporary / BDSM / Voyeurism / Exhibitionism / Public Places
Heat Level: 3 Length: Extended Amber Kiss (11k words)

This is part of the AMBER ALLURE LINE! I can't wait to read and review this one! Congratulations on what sounds like another winner Rick and keep them coming!

Love, Luck and Success Always,


Untill Next Time...Enjoy What You're Reading

The Book Of Matthew: A Macabre Novel of Suspense!

THE BOOK OF MATTHEW: A Macabre Novel of Suspense
By: Thomas White
Publisher: McBooks Press
Pub. Date: August 2008
ISBN-13: 9781590131510
Number of pages: 352pp

I couldn't help but close the book and hide my eyes quite a few times during this book! Believe it or not, I read this book in one sitting. Thomas White does a fantastic job writing this fast-paced page turning novel.

Yao and Angie (realtor/agent), find a body at one of the homes and in the mind of this serial killer named Matthew, who researches some of the most brutal ways to kill and torture people, who calls his crimes "messies" will keep you guessing until the very end. Catching a brutal serial killer isn't easy.

Yao and Angie are frustrated because they are always just one step behind this mad man. They knew it wouldn't be easy, but this hard? The characters in this book are anything but flat and kept me up well into the night. The descriptions of the torture and killings are graphic and amazingly unique.

This book kept me up at night and that's just the way I like them. while not for the squeamish, I would highly recommend this book! From cover to cover, I loved everything about it.

White's writing talents are amazing! I definitely look forward to reading more from this author! This book will always have a place on my book shelf.

I give this book FIVE FABULOUS TIARAS!!


Synopsis from Publisher:

Grizzled insomniac San Francisco Homicide Inspector Clemson Yao enlists the help of Angie Strachan—a San Francisco realtor who once tried and failed to become the city's first female homicide inspector—to help him solve a series of frightening murders. The two face off against a ghoulish, black-humored serial killer who whimsically refers to his grotesque murders as "messies." Gripped by macabre obsession for a decade, he's evolved into a grandmaster of slow, anguished death, roaming the globe to catalog the most despicable and clever methods of execution. As Clem and Angie slowly unravel the murderer's clues, they realize he has his next victim already picked out—and it seems there is nothing they can do to stop him.

About the Author:
Thomas White has worked in fields as diverse as intelligence—with stints in North Africa and the Middle East—and antiterrorist technology. He lives in San Francisco.
