A resident of Oklahoma, Rachel Vincent has a BA in English and an overactive imagination, and consistently finds the latter to be more practical. She shares her workspace with two black cats (Kaci and Nyx) and her # 1 fan. Rachel is older than she looks-seriously-and younger than she feels, but remains convinced that for every day she spends writing, one more day will be added to her lifespan.

BRAVE NEW GIRL comes out on Tuesday!

You guys! BRAVE NEW GIRL comes out in two days! I feel like I've been waiting for this release forever and I'm so excited that it's finally here!

I can't wait for everyone to meet Dahlia 16. Unlike most of my other heroines, she's not a fighter. Not physically, anyway. She's a perfectly normal, rule-following girl living in a Huxley-esque world, who gets stuck in an elevator with a boy she's not a Read more of this blog post »

“The worst memories stick with us, while the nice ones always seem to slip through our fingers.”
Rachel Vincent, My Soul to Save

“The moment the door opened I knew an ass-kicking was inevitable. Whether I'd be giving it or receiving it was still a bit of a mystery.”
Rachel Vincent, Stray

“If I love you more than you love me, I’m as good as dead. Yet I can’t make myself take it back. I can’t just walk away from you, because every time you pass by me without smiling, without touching my hand, or at least making eye contact, it feels like I’m dying inside.”
Rachel Vincent, Shift

message 36: by Feli

Feli I think you should do a book or short story telling what happened with Faythe and Marc. I mean, I know they got together and happily ever after, but since reading them again I've been wondering about their kids. Will their daughter be as troublesome (though in a good way) as Faythe? Will their sons be loyal as Marc? What happened to the Pride, in the end? Their enforcers? Everything, in fact... It's just a big "what if", if you will. Or maybe that's just my mind thinking far ahead and into the not probably future, but anyway :) The Shifters' series is unbelievable, I really love it.


Isabela Thank you for accepting my friend request Rachel!I love your books! :)

Shifters was one of the BEST series I've ever read and I'll never stop telling that it's one of the best EMOTIONAL sagas ever!!

I can't wait to read "Blood Bound", both covers look great!

Ky Rachel,

Thank-you for accepting my friend request. It means a lot. :D
Your books (that I've read), are amazing. I really enjoy your style and your characters have made me laugh, cry, and even get mad at them. I love them.
I look forward to reading more of your work.

Kendall


message 23: by Rachel

Rachel Thank you! The "Fearless" story actually has characters from my Soul Screamers series, so if you're interested in more about Nash (and about Sabine, beginning in the fourth book), Just look for My Soul To Take, which is the first novel in the series. Also, there's a free prequel (My Soul To Lose) in PDF format on my website. ;)

Kayleen Hi Rachel,

First off I'd like to say that I am a huge fan of your Shifters series, I just love them.

Secondly I'd like to say that I really loved your short story Fearless; that you had in Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love.
I loved it so much. It was one of my favorite things I read this year, and I was wondering if you ever considered making it into a novel?

Happy seasons.

Kayleen.

Tiffany Hi Rachel, I just wanted to stop by and let you know how much I really love your soul screamers series. I have to take a break from "My Soul to Save" because I have to read my First Reads book and review it, but once that is done I can hardly wait to finish the series. Thank you for the great reading and wonderful fantasy world you've created. Happy writing.
