Happy Birthday, Justin Gustainis

Today is February 9 (where I live, anyway), aka Justin Gustainis‘s birthday. Instead of buying him a present, please buy a copy of his novel Black Magic Woman (January 29, 2008). No, he didn’t ask me to say this; I came up with it. Mr G has sentimental value, because he sought out my reviewing services before I joined UFL, thus I feel worthy. And when I feel worthy, I feel good and give thanks. So thanks, Mr G. We hope you have a lovely day today, and every day, because you are an absolute gem! ๐Ÿ™‚

Or maybe I shouldn’t call you Mr G, so no one gets you confused with the character of the same name from Summer Heights HighMark Henry will know what I’m talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰

Harlequin are planning to launch a new line of paranormal romance eBooks, Nocturne Bites. So if you have a paranormal romance between 10,000 and 15,000 words, you might want to read the announcement.

Off to continue reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula now. Have a lovely day! ๐Ÿ™‚

SPOTLIGHT on Justin Gustainis! And a contest too!

justin-gustainis.jpgUniversity professor and former Lieutenant for the U.S. Army, Justin Gustainis, a new voice in urban fantasy, has done the very thing I love in his current release: blended contemporary fantasy with crime fiction.

And he’s here to answer 5 questions! And give away a copy of his book!

In Black Magic Woman, “Occult investigator Quincey Morris and his “consultant”, whitegustainis1.jpg witch Libby Chastain, are hired to free a family from a deadly curse that appears to date back to the Salem witch trials. Fraught with danger, the trail finds them stalking the mysterious occult underworlds of Boston, San Francisco, New Orleans, and New York, searching out the root of the curse. After surviving a seris of terrifying attempts on their lives, the two find themselves drawn inexorably towards Salem itselfโ€”the very heart of darkness.”

I love the sound of it already!

So, while I head out to the bookstore– again!– get comfy and take a look at the interview. Get to know Justin Gustainis better.
