390 Hi PA I loved Old Souls! I've already reviewed it, can I still enter the contest?

390 I have a few favourites with no vampires or werewolves.

First, it's an oldie but a goodie The Witching Hour (Lives of the Mayfair Witches, #1) by Anne Rice and The Mummy by Anne Rice are two of my favourites.

Also, I just read Old Souls by P.A. Luptonand loved it. It was a totally unique interpretation of witches and soul mates. No vampires or werewolves.

Another good series I read is Mark of the Demon (Kara Gillian, #1) by Diana Rowland Blood of the Demon (Kara Gillian, #2) by Diana Rowland Secrets of the Demon (Kara Gillian, #3) by Diana Rowland Although, I don't know how you feel about Demons. If you don't like vampires you may not like demons.

390 I just finished Hot Ticket (Sinners on Tour, #3) by Olivia CunningIt was the best in the series so far.

Now I'm starting Old Souls by P.A. Lupton

I think you've hit the nail on the head here. He is posting this in other threads too. It seems like Steven is trying to create a hype for his books. How many times has he posted the link to his website, or told us of his academic credentials (as if that impresses people). I hate seeing an author go to such lengths to promote books. He wonders why he has lagging sales, he doesn't realize this kind of "marketing" (I use that term loosely) puts a bad taste in our mouths. I personally would not read his book on principal alone. And I think Pamela asked a fantastic question. He admits to not liking vampires, why is in this group then?

I thought I couldn't be shocked by any of your comments after some of the things you've said but I was wrong. After all that name calling and slamming of SM do you mean to say you haven't even read the book? How can you argue so vehemently about something you haven't even read.

THANK YOU! Words out of my mouth!"

Unbelievable. You're a little high on yourself aren't you. Are you sure my puny little brain could handle your literary genius. Maybe that's why you haven't marketed to the public, everyone is just so intimidated by your brilliance.

I completely disagree with what you are saying. You shouldn't rate or review books you havent read. What is the point. Reviews help people make a decision about whether or not you want to purchase a book--if you're rating or reviewing books you haven't read you give that person a false impression. Why do you feel the need to rate the book anyway? If you didn't like the first what do you care?

390 Amy, I loved Bound by Blood too.
Did you know you can read Kindle books on your computer or laptop. Thats how i read most of my books. When you purchase an ebook at B&N or Amazon it will install an ap that will let you store all your Kindle books on the computer. I love it. Having it will also give you access to tons of books for 99 cents and $2.99. Amazon even puts on specials and free reads that you can download. I just got The Abandoned (Graveyard Queen #0.5) by Amanda Stevens for free.

390 I read Bound by Blood (The Garner Witch #1) by P.A. Lupton and I absolutely love the new spin on witches and vampires. Witches are my first love, but I like vampires too and I loved how this book connected them.

Is the Sweep series YA? It looks good
390 I absolutely loved Bound by Blood (The Garner Witch #1) by P.A. Lupton it's one of my favorites. I also enjoyed The Heat (The Big Bad Wolf, #1) by Heather Killough-Walden by Heather Killough Walden but I don't think it's on amazon anymore because of a few controversial reviews but it's on B&N and Smashwords. It was a good book though, and its the first in a series that has a few out already.

Also, this one I liked but it's $2.99 The Society of Sinners by Charity Parkerson

390 Just starting Darkfever (Fever, #1) by Karen Marie Moning I've heard so many good things I figured I'd give it a whirl.

I enjoy Maya Banks books. I've read the first of that series but it's been so long I can't remember it. Maybe I'll have to pick it up again.
