While I’m pulling together the massive display post, and the update about my crazy awesome week last week, I’d like to take a moment to tell you about a new friend of mine. Her name is Jennifer Martinez, and she is an up and coming Florida author!
Her new book, Don’t Kill Dinner, is a paranormal romance/urban fantasy novel about a young woman named Kenna who becomes a vampire. Kenna must learn, with handsome Arthur’s help, to control her insatiable bloodlust before the coven comes for her. It’s the first book in Jennifer’s upcoming “The Rules” trilogy. From her site:
There are three rules when it comes to being a vampire in New Orleans.
1) Don’t kill dinner.
2) Don’t feed from people you know.
3) Don’t tell anyone.
Not too hard, right? Wrong. Kenna is a new vampire filled with a passion that has turned into an uncontrollable lust for blood.
Will Arthur be able to stop her feeding spree before the coven comes after her or is Kenna beyond saving?
Arthur has been watching Kenna for years, wanting her to try her own hand in life before he gave her the ultimate proposal.
Now that she has accepted, will his love be enough to save her?
Release Date: March 15, 2013
**This book contains adult situations and mild-moderate language.**
I’m a sucker for PNR (and romance in general) and I hope some of you are, too! Jennifer even has a mini-prequel available on smashwords (or available for Kindle) called “Actor for Hire” that you can read to get a taste of her style and characters. You can also find Jennifer on Facebook and Twitter. Check her out!
I would love to post about more Florida authors; I love them! (I already have my next couple picked out) If you know of any awesome local (even just local to you!) authors, let me know!
