About this author

Rachel Firasek spends her days daydreaming of stories and her nights putting the ideas to ink. She has spent a dull life following the rules, meeting deadlines, and toeing the line, but in her made up worlds, she can let the wild side loose. Her wonderful husband and three children support her love of the written word and only ask for the occasional American Idol or Swamp People quality hour.



She has a philosophy about love. It must devastate or it isn’t truly worth loving. She hopes that you all find your devastating love and cling to it with all your heart! http://www.rachelfirasek.com/

Rachel Firasek RSVP HERE NOW:
http://www.bittenbybooks.com/?p=40624

Join us on 4/19 with author Rachel Firasek for an Release Party, chat and contest. This event starts at 12:00 pm Central and runs into the evening. For those visiting from outside of the US, here is the time conversion link. We are in the Chicago time zone: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/

Rachel will also be talking about her new book Piper’s Fury

“It’s an empath thing... Using your “powers” to help the Dark Hills Police Department hunt down serial killers doesn’t leave much time for dating. Not that Piper Anast is complaining. The last thing she needs is some guy brushing up against her and pumping his pornographic thoughts into her head. When she meets Bennett Slade, a sexy, tormented vampire, Piper stumbles headlong into a telepathic connection with his missing daughter. She can’t leave the kid to the evil surrounding her unwanted visions, nor can she resist her draw to Slade. He’s the first guy she’s been able to touch vision-free in, well, forever. As she and Slade close in on the evil creature holding his daughter, Piper’s powers morph into a deadly fury. To save Slade’s daughter-and herself-Piper must face down demons she never knew she had and trust the one thing she keeps from everyone. Her heart.”

CONTEST INFO: The contest portion of the event runs until 11:59 pm Central on 4/20/11 and is open to readers WORLDWIDE.
Prize: A $50.00 Electronic Amazon Gift Card.

Check out Rachel Firasek’s website and get your questions ready for the event.
