New cover, coming soon, and a coupon code

Be sure and stop in to VampChix on Saturday.  We'll post the My Bloody Valentine entries for you to vote on!  You can still enter through 10:00 pm central tonight.

A peak at the revised cover for Terence Taylor's BLOOD PRESSURE, out March 30th.  What do you think?  Does it make you want to pick it up in the bookstore and read more?

The secret war between vampires and humans escalates and 
the world will never be the same again…
Christopher Jude Miller – fully grown and still human – has returned to New York to seek answers about his past.  It is there he meets Joie, a young woman connected to his past, and falls into a twisted love triangle. He and Joie also realize that the magical forces that made both their lives possible have unexpected side effects, as they discover that united they have abilities neither knew of before - including the power to cure vampires.
Created after the incidents that brought in the National Guard to contain the vampire zombie plague on the Lower East Side, Clean Slate Global is a covert ops organization formed to rid the world of vampires, run by ex-deputy mayor Jonathan Richmond.  But Richmond unleashes an ancient evil with darker motives.  It plots to use Christopher and Joie’s power to eliminate all vampires from the Earth…with the exception of its own new and improved indestructible army of the undead.

Publisher's Weekly says:

"Set in 2001, 20 years after the events of 2009’s Bite Marks, Taylor’s adrenaline-laced sophomore efforts finds the once-evil Adam Caine practicing psychotherapy as Dr. Abel Lazarus; Lori trying to finish writing a biography of Zora Neale Hurston before succumbing to cancer; her former lover Steven struggling with a stalled career; and their daughter, Joie, filming performance art. They form a ragtag band of commandos with vampire Prenelle de Marivaux to combat the twin threats of the antivampire organization Clean State Global and supervamp Christopher Ross. Fascinating flashback sequences explore the Harlem Renaissance and prewar Berlin, and a powerful romance between young Joie and aging voodoo-practicing vampire Turner will melt readers’ hearts. Taylor keeps readers enthralled while setting the stage nicely for the next installment in this complex, fascinating world."

It'll take more than blood to satisfy their cravings...

Revisit Scarlet Rose and Sebastian Delacourte one year after they have come together, body, blood and soul. WICKED ANGELS promises that life is a lot more than romance and roses.
The desire for knowledge draws Scarlet to the dark side as she begins to question her vampire nature. Vince Lyons, the blonde heartthrob who sings for Wild Child, plunges deeper into the decadent world of vampirism hoping to discover the true monster he believes himself to be. And he'll be right there, waiting to catch Scarlet when she falls, which stokes the flames of rivalry between he and Sebastian. Enter Federico Bellange, the mysterious vampire who turns Vince on to the adrenaline rush of death.

WICKED ANGELS twines medieval Spain, 18th century Venice, and contemporary Los Angeles in an intriguing, fast-paced tale of love, betrayal, and the search for answers to a darkness that never ends.
