Wishful Wednesday [4]

Wishful Wednesday adalah sebuah blog hop yang dihost oleh Astrid @ Books to Share. Setelah 2 bulan tidak berpartisipasi, akhirnya saya bisa kembali berpartisipasi. Untuk kesempatan kali, buku yang saya pilih adalah :

Deskripsi dari Goodreads ; 

Deuce’s whole world has changed. Down below, she was considered an adult. Now, topside in a town called Salvation, she’s a brat in need of training in the eyes of the townsfolk. She doesn’t fit in with the other girls: Deuce only knows how to fight.

To make matters worse, her Hunter partner, Fade, keeps Deuce at a distance. Her feelings for Fade haven’t changed, but he seems not to want her around anymore. Confused and lonely, she starts looking for a way out.

Deuce signs up to serve in the summer patrols—those who make sure the planters can work the fields without danger. It should be routine, but things have been changing on the surface, just as they did below ground. The Freaks have grown smarter. They’re watching. Waiting. Planning. The monsters don’t intend to let Salvation survive, and it may take a girl like Deuce to turn back the tide.

Kenapa memilih buku ini?
Akhir-akhir ini saya memang lagi suka membaca buku dystopia. Kebetulan baru-baru ini saya baru membaca Enclave, jadi secara otomatis ketika selesai membaca Enclave saya menjadi penasaran untuk membaca bagaimana kelanjutan seri Razorland ini.

Blog Tour : The Crimson Crimes (Guest Post + Giveaway)

Shall Write

Guest post :
What does your Crimson series have to offer that other vampire novels don’t offer?
There have been many movies and novels about vampiresbut few of these feature one solitary vampire. In my Crimson series, there is one vampire – to be precise the One and Only Vampire on Earth, whose powers are handed down by a predecessor. In 2006, a physics professor from the University of Central Florida wrote a paper on geometric progression. He argued the mathematical illogic of having more than one vampire; he demonstrated that if every victim bitten by a vampire in turn would transform into a vampire and bite someone else and turn that person into a vampire then there would be no humans left in the world within two years – just vampires. One vampire has more kick.Admittedly though, I cheat because my One and Only Vampire has a goal is to create a new race of hybrid vampires by biting pregnant women in their ninth month.Only a small handful of my Crimson hybrids remain alive. Also, the erotica in my series jumps off the page and spares no gentle heart; it’s not meant for teens. I have nothing against paranormal teen romances because I’m thrilled with young readers who have a passion for books.Thecurrent vampire erotica market is picking up speed. If you search vampire erotica on at least (250) popular titles will be highlighted but given that tens of thousands of new titles are released each year, globally, it seems like a drop in the bucket. It’s therefore important for other writers to jump into the vampire erotica scene. Competition is a good thing. Competition and supremacy are the reason why vampires endure in the literary world – they are number one in the minds of many, as villain, loverand yes even hero.

About the Book :
Title : The Crimson Crimes - a vampire revenge (Crimson, #5)
Author : Patricia K. McCarthy
Launch date: 11 October (event details to follow; will take place in Ottawa)
Format: Paperback, Ebook, 308 pages

It’s the dead of night in the dead of winter, and bodies have been found, stacked ceiling-high, in a hillside cave in Ottawa’s Strathcona Park; necks pierced, blood drained – the usual. The city is gripped by a dusk-till-dawn curfew. The press, police and public have whipped each other into a glorious panic over someone or something called the “Vampire Undertaker.” Well, when did a silly curfew ever shut down the kitchen party at the Crimson house? Bring beer, bring smokes, but please bring yourself to meet The Vampires (there are at least four of them) and their quirky human pals. We can take turns feeding the baby vampire, stalling the cops when they come knocking, and tripping out on that time-dream machine up in the bedroom. You’ve got to love people who know how to make their own fun!
