Check out the tote bags we'll be giving away

YES! Great News! I have free tote bags to give away at the event on Wednesday March 9th with Rachel Hawkins and Sarwat Chadda. Aren't they fabulous? Demonglass on one side, Dark Goddess on the other. I know you want one. And I have several. I shall probably keep one to give away on the blog so keep reading.

As for the others, I'll be giving them away as door prizes

If you haven't seen the event description, here it is:

Wednesday, March 9, 7:00 p.m.
Rachel Hawkins and Sarwat Chadda
Kepler's Books, Menlo Park

Calling all paranormal and fantasy readers. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to hear Rachel Hawkins and Sarwat Chadda talk about their sequels to the wonderful Hex Hall and A Devil’s Kiss.

Rachel Hawkins: Demonglass

Sophie Mercer thought she was a witch. That was the reason she was sent to Hex Hall, a reform school for delinquent Prodigium (aka witches, shapeshifters, and fairies). But that was before she discovered the family secret, and that her crush, Archer Cross, is an agent for The Eye, a group bent on wiping Prodigium off the face of the earth.

Turns out, Sophie's a demon, one of only two in the world - the other being her father. What's worse, she has powers that threaten the lives of everyone she loves. So she decides to go to London for the Removal, a risky procedure that will either destroy her powers forever - or kill her.

But once Sophie arrives she discovers that her new housemates are demons too. Meaning someone is raising them in secret with creepy plans to use their powers, and probably not for good. Meanwhile, The Eye is using Archer to hunt Sophie down. But it's not like she has feelings for him anymore. Does she?

Sarwat Chadda: Dark Goddess (A Devil's Kiss Novel)

Billi's back, and thrust back into action when the Templars are called to investigate werewolf activity. These werewolves call themselves the Polenitsy: man killers and are on the hunt for a Spring Child, an Oracle powerful enough to blow the volcano at Yellowstone, precipitating a Fimbulwinter that will wipe out humankind for good.

The Templars follow the stolen Spring Child to Russia but the only people there who can help are the Bogatyrs, a group of knights who may have gone to the dark side. To reclaim the Spring Child and save the world, Billi needs to earn the trust of Ivan Romanov, an arrogant young Bogatyr who’s suspicious of people in general, and of Billi in particular.

Dark Goddess is a page-turning, action-packed sequel that spans continents, from England to the Russian underworld and back. This is an adventure of folklore and myth become darkly real, of the world running out of time, and of Billi SanGreal - the only one who can save it.

Both books are great - I'd recommend them both. Try them.
