BEA 2012 Convention Day 3

Posted by The Obscured Vixen on June 10, 2012

BEA 2012 Convention Day 3

June 6, 2012

I woke up bright and early again to get to the Javits Center for the third day of BEA. First item on my agenda was to head to the Becca Fitzpatrick signing.

I got in line about a half hour before it started, and there was already a lot of people ahead of me. I was happy that I was one of the first 150 people in line because they were handing out badass Hush, Hush tshirts!

To pass the time while waiting for the signing to start, there were two shirtless fallen angels handing out bookmarks and taking pictures. Was I way too old to be taking my picture with them? Of course! But how could I pass up a photo op with topless fallen angels?!

When I finally got up to meeting Becca, she recognized me from Twitter! (had a huge total fan girl moment) She was another awesome author that was just so easy to talk to. What a sweetheart!

I continued to walk around the floor until the next scheduled author signing, and found publishers that strictly published erotica. I was in heaven! I literally took every sample that they had.

One of my absolute favorite movies is The Usual Suspects. So when I saw that Kevin Pollack was doing a singing for his new book How I Slept My Way to the Middle, I had to be in line.

Kevin Pollak was another person that was so unbelievably nice to meet! He asked me where I was from, what I blog about, and how I was liking BEA so far. We were just chatting like two normal people!

I was then star struck again when I met Michael Ian Black and Meghan McCain.

Michael Ian Black was just as hilarious as he is on tv. He said that I had the best blog ever and that he reads it twice a day, in that dry humor of his. Meghan McCain was so sweet, and absolutely gorgeous!

To promote Ally Condie’s release of Reached, there was a huge standee of the cover where you could insert yourself into the ‘bubble’ on the cover. I tried to pose like the previous covers, so please ignore my dorky expression : )

I continued to walk the show floor, pick up more book samples, and meet more amazing authors before going home yet again with aching feet and bruised shoulders.

BEA was such an amazing experience. I met other awesome bloggers, wonderful authors, and hot cover models ; ) I definitely cannot wait to go back again next year!

Here is a photo of the books that I took home. You can see where my priorities lie ; )

BEA 2012 Convention Day 2

Posted by The Obscured Vixen on June 9, 2012

BEA 2012 Convention Day 2

June 5, 2012

For my fist time at BEA, I absolutely loved it and cannot wait to go back again next year!

My second day at BEA started out with an author breakfast. There were breakfast tables set up in the main events hall where I ate breakfast with other bloggers, publishers, librarians, and teachers.

On the stage in front of us was a panel of authors: Stephen Colbert, Junot Diaz, Barbara Kingsolover, and Jo Nesbo.

Stephen Colbert’s opening speech was absolutely hilarious (as he usually is). He stated that “as a late night talk show host, the one thing I love is breakfast and talking literature.” He continued to make fun of vampires, 50 Shades of Grey, and other pop culture topics.

Colbert stated, “Since a book about sex could be listed on the New York Times Best Seller list, it is okay for me to talk about my penis.” Throughout his entire speech, he would randomly make references to his penis: “Blue vein shaft throbber,” “Rock hard loin plow,” and “Purple helmeted groin warrior.”

Colbert was promoting his new book AMERICA AGAIN: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t. The book will be in 3D (literally coming with 3D glasses) because of how well The Avengers movie did in 3D. “I literally want the pages to turn right at you… and make over $200 million opening weekend.”

Junot Diaz was also very funny, but in a dark subtle humor kind of way. He spoke about how important people who promote books really are; how authors couldn’t do it without us. Diaz wrote a story about “young dumbasses” that wanted to find love, but didn’t want to admit it.

Growing up Diaz’s sister would say how different boys were in public, then in their own him. This is where Diaz got the idea for a book about how hard it is for guys to fall in love because they have to make themselves vulnerable which goes against everything guys are taught growing up.

Barbara Kingsolover had a very interesting quote to say about getting published: “How did authors get bumped up to be in the same circle as the funniest guy on Comedy Central?… All celebrities get book deals, and the person least willing to get a book deal is a writer.”

Jo Nesbo is from Norway, so naturally he was cute and spoke with an awesome accent : ) Nesbo spoke about how he was a guitarist and stock broker while writing. Things became too much Nesbo and he needed a vacation. He booked a flight to Australia and began writing full time.

After breakfast, I went up to the Autograph Area where there are scheduled author signings. If you look at the picture above, you’ll know why people were calling it the ‘cattle pen.’ They were herding us like cattle while on line to meet these authors.

I met and received autographed books from Lee Woodruff, Sylvia Day, and Maggie Stiefvater from the autographing area.

Sylvia Day was so unbelievably sweet! She took extra time to talk to me just bullshitting about life after signing her book.

I almost missed the Lee Woodruff signing, so by the time I got there they were closing down the line. I ‘lovingly persuaded’ them to let me through.

As I was walking down the row to meet Lee, there was no one in front of me. She started signing “Here she is, Miss America…”  hahaha  I did some twirls as I approached the table. Lee was such a riot and it was so awesome meeting her. She even complimented my Doc Martens and said she loved how I was “decked out comfortable.”

A majority of the show floor was made up of publisher booths; everything from romance to fantasy, children’s books to textbooks. Literally any kind of publisher you could imagine was represented and was there.

There were publishers giving out free samples of books, literally more books than anyone could carry! The best part was a lot of publishers were giving out advanced reading copies of books that do not come out until later in the fall.

At the Ellora’s Cave booth, the Ellora’s Cavemen were there taking pictures! There were four cover models in the booth and were autographing their calendars in tank tops. Totally drool worthy! (Click here for beefcake photos!)

While I was looking at the calendar, I asked the cover models, “There’s a big difference between you guys in the calendar and you guys today.” Naturally, they looked at me like I was nuts. I continued, “You guys aren’t wearing shirts in the calendar.”

I literally made huge, strong male cover models blush! They said that they had to wear the shirts, but were thinking of wearing body paint next year. Score!

There were also author in-booth signings from their publishers besides the autograph area. That’s where I waited on a very looooong line and was able to meet Melissa Marr. *squee, fan girl moment*

There were also tons of celebrities doing signings of books that they had coming out.

Kristi Yamaguchi had a new children’s book coming out and was talking about the book, as well as what it was like to be an amazing figure skater.

I was able to talk to her after the interview, and she was unbelievably sweet! She was so humble, down to earth and absolutely drop dead gorgeous!

Unfortunately there were some celebrities that you needed a VIP ticket in order to meet. Molly Ringwald was one of those celebrities. I was able to see her though, and she looks exactly like she does on tv!

At the end of the day I brought home 32 books, and had bruised shoulders and aching feet. But it was totally worth it!

I went to bed super early, and woke up early the next day to do it all over again…

Book Review, Author Interview & Giveaway: The Deadly Series by Cynthia Eden

Posted by The Obscured Vixen on June 7, 2012

Book Review, Author Interview & Giveaway: The Deadly Series by Cynthia Eden

Deadly Fear, Deadly Heat, Deadly Lies

Deadly Fear blurb:
FBI Special Agent Monica Davenport has made a career out of profiling serial killers. But getting inside the twisted minds of the cruel and the sadistic has taken its toll: She’s walled herself off from the world. Yet Monica can’t ignore fellow agent Luke Dante, the only man who ever broke through her defenses.

Luke has the unique ability to put victims at ease…professionally, he and Monica made a perfect team. Now they’re reunited to catch a murderer who uses his victims’ deepest, darkest fears for sport – but their investigative skills aren’t enough. Luke and Monica will have to face the secrets from their past, the ones that terrify them the most, if they are to have a future together.

Deadly Heat blurb:
She wants revenge… Six months after her lover died in an arsonist’s blaze, firefighter Lora Spade calls in the FBI’s elite Serial Services Division to track the elusive killer. When Special Agent Kenton Lake is lured into a violent inferno, Lora pulls him to safety and is stunned – not by the fire, but by her own searing attraction to Kent. For the first time in months, she longs for something other than vengeance.

He wants her… Kenton’s interest in Lora should be purely professional. But one fleeting kiss and he can’t get her out of his mind. Her combination of strength and vulnerability makes him want to protect her, and that means solving this case – and fast. For even the passion igniting between them can’t hide a terrifying truth: Lora is the next target in a murderer’s sadistic, fiery game.

Deadly Lies blurb:
She wants to hide the past… FBI Special Agent Samantha Kennedy is haunted by memories of the serial killer who abducted her. To keep the darkness at bay, she pretends to be a different, more confident woman. This Samantha doesn’t fear every unknown face. So she throws caution to the wind and shares a night of unbridled passion with a handsome stranger.

He needs to uncover the truth… One night isn’t enough for successful entrepreneur Max Ridgeway. He wants more of the sexy, smart, mysterious woman who slipped away before dawn. When they meet again, their attraction is undeniable-until his stepbrother goes missing, and Max realizes that Samantha isn’t who she seems. But they must trust each other to trap a ring of bloodthirsty kidnappers before the nightmares that terrorize Sam become irrevocably real.

Deadly Series Review

I couldn’t get enough of this series! I flew through these books and was left wanting more. Each book had a compelling story, and each was unique. The suspense kept me on the edge of my seat, and every book definitely had a point of no return. Once you get to that crazy twist in the story, you can’t do anything until you finish the book and find out what happens. I love when authors write stories like this!

It’s also great to see characters appear in more than just their book. The couple from the first book shows up in the next two, and the heroine in the third story gets set up throughout the series. Cynthia Eden does a great job of intertwining the characters within each of the stories tying them together.

I absolutely fell in love with Monica and Luke from Deadly Fear. They are both strong characters, and it was so easy to fall in love with them. You are rooting for them through the entire book. Monica is a very complex character, which always makes stories more interesting. We slowly learn more and more about her past as the story unfolds, which makes for a fabulous ending.

Deadly Heat is perfectly titled… this book is seriously hot! Lora and Kenton have a seriously hot connection, and Cynthia Eden does have her way with great sex scenes (which I just happen to be partial to : ). I loved Lora’s sense of sarcastic humor, and how she teases Kenton. It’s so great when characters make you laugh out loud.

I loved watching Samantha overcome her fears in Deadly Lies. Samantha is abducted in an earlier book, and has to struggle to over come this traumatic experience. Max helps Samantha through her nightmares, and move on with her life. The dynamic between these two really tugs on your heart strings. I absolutely love the relationship between Max and Samantha, and couldn’t get enough.

I would definitely recommend reading this series. And a helpful word of advice? Have the next book handy because you’re going to want to dive right in!

My favorite part of being a blogger is that I get to meet and talk to awesome people. The fabulous Cynthia Eden has been awesome enough to agree to do this interview to go along with this blog post, AND offer to giveaway a copy of Angel Betrayed, Cynthia’s July release. Get it before it hits the shelves!Enjoy the interview : )


Obscured Vixen: Your Deadly series includes heroines with very different personalities – Monica, Lora and Samantha. Which do you find yourself most like and why?
Cynthia Eden:
Actually, I wish I could say that I was like all of those ladies! But they are much braver than I could ever be. ; ) I tend to be a fairly quiet girl, so I’m like Samantha in that respect. Isn’t the saying that still waters run deep? It’s the quiet girls that you should watch out for—they often have deep secrets!

OV: I love the mystery to all of these stories. Is it fun writing twists into your story to purposely mislead the reader?
Is it wrong to say that, yes, it is? I can’t help it—I love twists. When I’m watching movies or TV shows, I’m constantly thinking of ways to add in twists, ways that I would have written the scenes in order to throw off viewers. After all, what is life without some fun twists?

OV: At the end of Deadly Lies, you have an epilogue that hints at another books in this series. Will there be?
At this time, I haven’t written any additional Deadly books, but I not going to close the door and say that there won’t ever be more of them. I had a great time writing those tales, and, one day in the future, I may revisit them. I can say this much… I have lots of romantic suspense stories in the works. I will be releasing 4 stories with Harlequin Intrigue next year, and I will also be releasing single titles, as well. We’re actually still doing contract negotiations on the single titles, but I can say that the books will be very dark and sexy, similar in tone to my Deadly books.

OV: I can’t wait! How long have you been writing?
For as long as I can remember. Seriously. I always wanted to be a writer, but life distracted me for a time. After college, I started teaching, I got married, I had a son, and, then one day I realized… I’d lost my dream. I decided that it was time for me to grab that dream and hold onto it as tightly as I could. So I started writing. My first book didn’t sell (actually, I don’t think my first four sold), but I kept writing anyway. And, now, I’m lucky enough to say that I’ve been writing full-time for five years. Did I mention how incredibly lucky I feel?

OV: Have you ever wrote something, reread it and thought, “Wow! That was awesome!”
I wish! I think that I may be my own worst critic. When I write a story, I often think… is this good enough? Are the characters strong enough? What am I doing?! For a while, I thought I was the only writer who had these doubts, then I talked to others and realized… yes, we’re all a little (or lot!) neurotic this way. So I’m doubting *while* I write a story, but when I am actually done with the story and reading over the final version, I can sometimes think… hey, that’s not half bad!

OV: Which of your works are you most proud of and why?
That is a very tough question. I’m proud of all my stories—I really loved the characters I create—but I think I have to say that the Deadly books challenged me the most. Those books pushed me to explore deeper and darker aspects of my characters. The Deadly stories required some intensive research, and they took me out of my paranormal comfort zone. Those books showed me that I could love another sub-genre, and they taught me the value of following my instincts. So… the Deadly books (Deadly Fear, Deadly Heat, and Deadly Lies). Those books are the ones that come to mind first for me.

OV: I am so excited that you are a featured author at Author After Dark (AAD) this year, and cannot wait for the ‘I Scream Party!’ Any details you can share with us about that?
Yay!! I am so glad that you’re excited about the party! I will be hosting the I Scream Party with Katie Reus, Manda Collins, and Virna DePaul. We’ll have tasty ice cream treats (you can add your fave toppings) and a ton of giveaways (each person who comes to the party will get a bag of goodies). We’ll have some special villain fun waiting for the attendees. Games, bad guys, and ice cream. What more do we need in order to have a good time?

OV: Games, bad guys, and ice cream… what more could a girl want?! What are you most looking forward to as an Authors After Dark featured author?
I’m looking forward to meeting the readers! I am so excited about having a chance to talk with people who love romance books just as much as I do. Readers, bloggers, other writers—the place will be filled with some very fun folks, and I can’t wait to chat with them all!

Giveaway Details

Cynthia has been extremely generous and is offering to giveaway her upcoming story ANGEL BETRAYED which is not being released until July. This is definitely a giveaway that you will want to enter!

Sammael – call him Sam – was an angel once. An angel of death. But the dispassionate, watch-from-above thing just wasn’t working for him when it meant watching evil torture innocent souls day in and day out. It might have cost him his wings, but these days, he gets to apply the direct method on the bad guys. Problem is, what’s making his life difficult is a bad girl…

Seline O’Shaw needs protection, and with the hounds of hell on her tail, she’s not going to quibble too hard about where she gets it. Sam’s virtue is questionable, but he’s smoking hot, massively powerful, and owes her a favor. So what if she’s getting a little case of angel lust? There are some damn deadly sins after her hide…

BEA 2012 Book Blogger Convention Day 1

Posted by The Obscured Vixen on June 4, 2012

BEA 2012 Book Blogger Convention

Jennifer Weiner, Julie Kagawa, Ally Condie, Amy Sohn & New Bloggers

Today was the first day of BEA 2012!

I attended the BEA Book Blogging Convention and had an absolutely blast. I met so many awesome people: amazing authors, other book bloggers, and Twitter friends in the flesh! Could a girl ask for more?

The day started with checking in at registration and receiving ‘swag bags.’ These bags contained a random selection of books from featured authors that were at the convention. A huge thanks to publishers and authors for being so generous!

For breakfast, we went “speed dating” with authors. Different authors rotated tables and sat to talk for about fifteen minutes. One of the favorite authors I met was Amy Sohn.

Amy was discussing her book Motherland: “Rebecca Rose, whose husband has been acting aloof, is tempted by the attentions of a former celebrity flame; Marco Goldstein, saddled with two kids as his husband Todd goes on a business trip, turns to sex with strangers for comfort; Danny Gottlieb, a screenwriter on the cusp of a big break, leaves his wife and children to pitch a film (and meet young women) in Los Angeles; fallen sanctimommy Karen Bryan Shapiro, devastated by her husband’s infidelity and abandonment, attempts a fresh start with a hot single dad; and former A-List movie star Melora Leigh plots a star turn on Broadway to revive her Hollywood career.”

This book sounded so intriguing, and Amy is a complete breath of fresh air. She wanted to write a book about how people really act in relationships in the real world. It was so nice to hear because I hate when characters in books do things that no person in the real world would. It makes me want to put the book down. I will definitely be reading this book!

I hunted down Ally Condie because I just had to meet her! I was looking through authors that would be at the convention, and read the books that sounded most intriguing.

When I read the blurb for Matched by Ally Condie, I couldn’t resist her Dystopian novel: “Cassia has always trusted the Society to make the right choices for her. So when Xander’s face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate… until she sees Ky Markham’s face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. The Society tells her it’s a glitch, a rare malfunction, and that she should focus on the happy life she’s destined to lead with Xander. But Cassia can’t stop thinking about Ky, and as they slowly fall in love, Cassia begins to doubt the Society’s infallibility and is faced with an impossible choice: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path that no one else has dared to follow.”

I definitely recommend everyone reading Ally Condie’s Matched, and I can’t wait to start the second book in the series, Crossed. She was so sweet, and it was awesome to get to talk to her.

After breakfast, Jennifer Weiner was the keynote speaker. Her presentation was absolutely hilarious. Jennifer is so funny and quirky, and someone I would love to hang out with. She was 100% her true self.

Jennifer was discussing how she has been blogging since 2001, and what happened along the way. The best advice that Jennifer had was that “No one can hurt your feelings without your permission… No matter what you blog about, there will always be someone there to smack you down.” If someone says something bad about your work, it’s only negative if you let it in and truly effect you. I thought this was absolutely perfect, and something everyone in the room related to.

The way you have to approach blogging according to Jennifer is to “Be as transparent as possible… Dance like no one is watching, sing like no one is listening, and Tweet like your mother isn’t online.” She had the room in an absolute uproar. Her speech resonated with everyone in the room, and was absolutely fantastic.

After Jennifer’s keynote was our lunch break. Which meant another round of awesome author speed dating!

And I got to hang out with Julie Kagawa! She was so kind and one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. She was so adorable I just wanted to take her home!

Julie was talking about how hard it was for her to get published. It took her years, and her first work to this day has never been published. It wasn’t until she switched genres that she was published. Fantasy YA fit Julie perfectly and she now has two series in the genre.

As I’ve never attending BEA before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. All of the other book bloggers I met were so awesome. It was great to be around other people who enjoyed the same things I did. You know who you ladies are ; )

As much fun as today was, I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!

Best Quotes from Lover Reborn by JR Ward

Posted by The Obscured Vixen on June 2, 2012

Best Quotes from Lover Reborn, by JR Ward

I must admit, like many other people out there, The Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward is my absolutely favorite series ever. Whenever a new book comes out, I take off work just so that I can read it straight through without distraction. It is literally like Christmas for me!

The part I enjoy most about JR Ward’s books are the intricate story lines. I love that there are always more than one story line going on at the same time.

And of course the awesome hilarious one-liners that she comes up with.

While reading each new book, I write down all of my favorite quotes from the book. I started doing this when reading Rhage’s book, Lover Eternal, just because there were so many great one liners. How can you not enjoy them? Rhage is absolutely hilarious!

Later on in the series, there were some great lines between Vishous and Butch as well. That then turned to Lassiter once he made his appearance.

Then as the ‘next wave’ of pre-trans showed up, Qhuinn took over that comic relief role of having funny, sarcastic lines.

I will be releasing a post like this for each book, but figure that I would start with Lover Reborn since it is the latest release. I hope you enjoy, and please don’t hesitate to comment if I forgot anything!

Enjoy the Brothers : )

“Do everyone a favor and get that shoulder dealt with. Afterward, you can call him a fuck-twit, an ass-hat and any other thing that strikes you.” ~ Tohrment, page 37

“Kettle. Black.” ~ Rhage, page 38

“No offense, but I’d rather take advice from Rhage – and that’s saying something.” ~ Tohrment, page 89

“So we’re good on the ‘buttercup?’ Or do I have to get even tough with you? I’ll pull out ‘pookie’ if I have to.” ~ Trez, page 95
