Chelsea Mueller writes gritty contemporary fantasy and thrillers for adults and teens. She founded the speculative fiction website Vampire Book Club, blogs about TV and romance novels for numerous websites, and is co-chair of SF/F charity Geeky Giving.

She spends too much time at the gym practicing MMA skills, but makes up for it by counseling other authors on writing dynamic and realistic fight scenes. Get those tips in her Write Like a Fighter blog series.

She loves bad cover songs, dramatic movies, and TV vampires. Chelsea lives in Texas, and has been known to say y’all.

ROGUE SOULS is done and I love it. :) Lots of answers about how magic works and you'll never forget the Delgado family dinner scene (Derek is invited). I'm hoping we'll have the release date soon. As soon as it's confirmed, I'll post it on my blog. (less)

The Night Huntress series morphs from a more straight-forward urban fantasy to more of a paranormal romance series over time, and maybe that's why I love these two together so much. When Cat and Bones meet it's contentious, to say the least, but once they are firmly a couple Bones will not give up on her. She's focused on solving problems, saving the world, protecting her friends. Bones is fine with doing that, but his No. 1 priority is always Cat. She comes first for him, and that's part of what makes him so appealing.

(One might make a similar argument about Jamie Fraser, who is also an ultimate book boyfriend.)(less)

All the Updates: Books, Baby, Reading Recommendations

Did y’all miss me? While I’ve been chatting with many of you on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, the blog has been quiet. Usually I’m quick to give everyone updates, but this year (we can all agree that 2020 has been an entire year already, right?) has been bananas busy for me.





So, I have a few updates and a stack of book recs…because of course I do.





Yes, more books are coming.

“Its our actions that define us. What we choose. What we resist. What we're willing to die for.”

“Our sex is fierce. We will both be bruised.

"I want it to always be like this," I tell him.

"Try holding onto that thought."

"I do not need to try. I will never feel differently."

His laughter is as dark and cold as the place of which I dream, "One day you will wonder if it's possible to hate me more.”

“I'm saying that I'm a moody, insecure, narrow-minded, jealous, borderline homicidal bitch, and I want you to promise me that you're okay with that, because it's who I am, and you're what I need.”
Jeaniene Frost, Halfway to the Grave

Jeaniene Frost
“Aside from the obvious, Francesca, what do you want in return for supplying information?” Bones asked, getting back to the subject. “You to take me,” she replied at once. “Not gonna happen!” I spat, squeezing him possessively. Three sets of widened eyes fixed on me. That’s when I realized that what I had a firm grip on was no longer his hand.”
Jeaniene Frost, Halfway to the Grave

Jeaniene Frost
“No, I'm too tired to run, and you're too fast. You'd only catch me." "That's right, luv." Softly, but with unyielding resonance. "if you run from me, I'll chase you. And I'll find you. Bones said.”

Isalys Hi *waves* Thanks for accepting my friend request. Now I can stalk you here too ;)


Rochelle Levy Hello all, I'm looking for individuals who have a fantasy/vamp blog to review a new title from an independent publishing company (www.azizapublishing.com). If you are interested please email me at RochelleLevy@azizapublishing.com.

Here is the summary:


Witnessing a brutal murder at work is only the beginning of Celia’s problems. The fact that the victim is a vampire only proves to complicate her life even more. The vampires of New England have always had an undetected existence among humans but with the unprovoked death of one of their own, the lust for revenge has begun.

Celia’s concerns are magnified once a hunter from Dallas arrives in town. With Jay’s sexy smile and rugged ways, Celia finds herself wanting to spend time with him despite being mysteriously linked to the nest that is threatening to become extinct if Jay gets his way.

When four bodies are found drained of blood; Jay teams up with a local bunch to take out all the undead which, coincidentally, includes her boyfriend, Victor. Celia won’t stand to see anything happen to Victor… but refuses to Jay hurt either. Confusion, lust, rage and violence intertwine as worlds collide. Celia will soon discover that her neat little existence is not what it seems as her cryptic past and present start to unravel.
