Served

Remember when I was talking about trends and vampire paranormals, and I told you all the market is demanding better, stronger books to compete with what's already out there?

I rarely preview novels before they hit the market, but there's a vampire paranormal book coming out in a few months that is so strong and so beautifully competitive that it knocked me on my butt. Got a sizzling quote out of me, too (and you know PBW is no quote slut.)

I love this kind of book, because it keeps established writers from getting lazy and complacent, and raises the bar for all of us. Some advice to those of you who are thinking of pitching: crank up the power in those submissions.

I'll check with the editor to see if I can post the details, but dark fantasy lovers? You're about to get served.

  4. After that endorsement, all I need is author and title.

    For some reason, I think I know which book that is.

    Hmm....
