Favorite Quote Friday #20

Happy Friday!  This has been such a fun week!  I've been participating in the My Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop and it has pretty much obliterated my determination not to add any more books to my TBR pile.  :-)  I'm giving away the winner's choice of either a signed copy of Darkness Dawns or a signed copy of Night Reigns + Immortal Guardians swag for it.  And there are many other prizes up for grabs at the other Giveaway Hop stops, so – if you join the fun – I hope you'll win lots of goodies!

There is also still time to enter my contests at EBookObsessed and Vampire Book Club.  The first is open through today.  The second is open through the 6th.  I'm giving away a singed book and swag at each.

News
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I received some fabulous news this week.  Night Reigns, the second book in my Immortal Guardians series, has been nominated for Book of the Month by Long and Short Reviews.  The poll goes live at Midnight on Saturday, February 4th and ends at Midnight on Sunday, February 5th.  You can cast your vote here.


The good news didn't stop there.  :-)  Darkness Dawns, the first book in my Immortal Guardians series, has been nominated for Best Book of 2011 or Book of the Year by Long and Short Reviews.  It received a Best Book review just before its release in February 2011: 

"Action-packed world building and a hero daring all for 
love makes Darkness Dawns one of the most fascinating 
romances I’ve read this year.  I am so enthusiastic about 
this story because of its humor, passion and an 
interesting take on the vampire myth."

What an honor!  Voting begins on February 16th and will continue through February 29th.

Now on to Favorite Quote Friday.  Today's selection is taken from Darkness Dawns.  It is a narrative quote plucked from the thoughts of Roland, the hero:

She wouldn’t let him?  She, a five-foot-one inch, ninety-five
pound mortal female, wouldn’t let him, a six-foot-two inch 
immortal sporting two hundred pounds of muscle--
Ah, screw it.
~ Roland ~

For a supposedly surly, antisocial immortal, Roland sure has made me smile a lot while writing and editing the series.  :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!
