Join me in welcoming Moira Rogers, and a giveaway!
Saturday, February 26th, 2011

Join me in welcoming Moira Rogers to the Velvet Cataclysm contest! She’s been generous enough to offer up an ebook ARC of the upcoming Wilder’s Mate, and I’m telling you…this looks GOOD. It releases March 8, so be sure to look for it from Samhain Publishing.

What’s the first vampire novel you ever read?

Dracula, for sure. But I think the first time I read the more sexy vampires might have been Laurell K Hamilton’s Guilty Pleasures. I can not tell a lie–I am still team werewolf. But once in a while, vampires sneak their way into my affections.

What’s your favorite vampire book or series?
I don’t know if most people would consider this a vampire series, but I love Meljean Brook’s Guardian series. Demon Blood has one of my favorite vampire heroes thus far.

What’s the most surprising thing you have learned about being a writer?

How much of my job isn’t writing. There are weeks where I battle through edits and revisions and forms and promotional tasks, and all I want to be doing is writing. But getting to write is awesome enough to make the rest of it worth it.

What’s up next for you?

Wilder’s Mate, my paranormal romance with a Wild West steampunkish twist, comes out on March 8th. And it has vampires! 😉

Wilder’s Mate

Wilder Harding is a bloodhound, created by the Guild to hunt down and kill vampires on America’s frontier. His enhanced abilities come with a high price: on the full moon, he becomes capable of savagery beyond telling, while the new moon brings a sexual hunger that borders on madness.

Rescuing a weapons inventor from undead kidnappers is just another assignment, though one with an added complication–keeping his hands off the man’s pretty young apprentice, who insists on tagging along.

At odds with polite society, Satira’s only constant has been the aging weapons inventor who treats her like a daughter. She isn’t going to trust Wilder with Nathaniel’s life, not when the Guild might decide the old man isn’t worth saving. Besides, if there’s one thing she’s learned, it’s that brains are more important than brawn.

As the search stretches far longer than Wilder planned, he finds himself fighting against time. If Satira is still at his side when the new moon comes, nothing will stop him from claiming her. Worse, she seems all too willing. If their passion unlocks the beast inside, no one will be safe. Not even the man they’re fighting to save.

Warning: This book contains a crude, gun-slinging, vampire-hunting hero who howls at the full moon and a smart, stubborn heroine who invents mad-scientist weapons. Also included: wild frontier adventures, brothels, danger, betrayal and a good dose of wicked loving in an alternate Wild West.

    I’ve never read anything in the steampunk genre before. I do love paranormal romance, especially shifter stories. Considering Wilder’s Mate has vampires and shifters (my favorite) I think this would be the best way to introduce me to steampunk elements. I love the cover BTW!

    With a warning like this how could I not enter? You rolled every literary hot button I have into one pretty handsome package…

    Warning: This book contains a crude, gun-slinging, vampire-hunting hero who howls at the full moon and a smart, stubborn heroine who invents mad-scientist weapons. Also included: wild frontier adventures, brothels, danger, betrayal and a good dose of wicked loving in an alternate Wild West.

    I enjoy reading about the wild west and have read some great books about vampires, but I am clueless when it comes to the term steampunk. It still really hasn’t caught my understanding, but Wilder’s Mate is a good place to start. 😆

    I’m going to tease and say that I won an ARC from a previous contest, and this book is FAN*EFFING*TASTIC!!!!!! I have always enjoyed Moira Rogers, and after looking on the site, realize that I am only missing one book, which I will be buying later today (thanks to payday being here) Whoever wins this will get more than they can imagine. Love it.
