Saturday Shout Out: News and Notes from Around the Web

*One of my new daily stopping points is Vampire Genre, a comprehensive look at all things going on in the world of vampire fiction. The site is easy on the eyes and I love the revolving book widget at the top! This week Vampire Genre had a post describing Rain Lashed, a free Kyndred e-book by Lynn Viehl that is posted over at Scribd. You'll definitely want to add this blog to your list!

*Hot off the Vampire Wire press...Marta Acosta also has a new story available over at Scribd! Monster Motel is the original version of Midnight Brunch which was published in 2007 and the new/old version comes complete with an Alfred Hitchcock inspired cover. Marta has this to say about her decision to make Monster Motel available:

"... I thought fans of the series might enjoy reading Milagro's adventures among eccentric movie people. You'll find some of the same characters, and also different versions of the characters, as well as those who never made it to the final cut. It's really quite a different book."

*And since this post seems almost dedicated to free e-books I thought I'd add one more for fans of super sexy werewolves! Midnight Moon Cafe has announced that Cora Zane has a steamy new story available over at Smashwords called Under A Midnight Moon. Fair warning- this book is intended for those 18 and older. Don't say I didn't warn you.

*Rebecca over at Dirty Sexy Books has completely overhauled her site and it's looking good! The new color palette is various shades of black and gray which gives the site a grittier feel. I can't wait to see the finished product.

*Abigail from All Things Urban Fantasy has teamed up with Tynga of Tynga's Reviews to bring us the Paranormal Summer Fest which runs from June 1st to June 30th and will showcase various authors, titles and awesome giveaways each and every day. You do not want to miss this!

*My Dead in the Family word scramble contest ends on June 17th. All entries must be emailed to me at
