Thank you for visiting my Goodread's profile. I am Valerie Zambito, and I live in New York. After having been involved in a busy sales career for fifteen years, a great love of world building, character creation, and all things magic led to the publication of my first adult epic fantasy series, ISLAND SHIFTERS, in October of 2011 and a young adult paranormal series, ANGELS OF THE KNIGHTS, shortly thereafter.

My reading preference is fantasy as well and I devour in copious amounts. In my opinion, there’s nothing like a front row seat to a great epic tale filled with adventure, mystery and danger.

I gravitate to fantasy with heroic elements. I like strong, confident men who never back down from a fight against evil. The kind who will not hesi

Hello all!  As promised, I’m back in the saddle and concentrating on all things Feral Princess. The recharge has done wonders and the excitement is real. The ideas have piled up during my hiatus and now I’m busy sorting through all the notes. Hope you all enjoyed a fun-filled summer. I know I did, but have to admit to being just as anxious to slow things down and enjoy some cooler weather.

“As you should know by now, Beck Atlan, it’s not all about brawn. It’s about anticipating your opponent’s next move, and I read yours easily in your eyes. It seems you fell for my little feint,” she said, holding her left side in exaggeration.”
Valerie Zambito, An Oath of the Blood

“Wearing black leather trousers, short jacket, fitted corset and leather arm pads, Beck decided she looked exactly like the warrior princess she was meant to be. He always thought her an extraordinary blend of brute strength and subtle femininity and that belief was more in evidence today than ever. Her mastery in sword fighting, near blademaster rank, and her innate ability to anticipate the moves of much larger adversaries, made her a lethal fighter. She was also one of his best friends.”
Valerie Zambito, An Oath of the Blood

“Beck sucked in his breath guiltily and held it. After a long moment, she smiled, amused, and gestured with her head for him to ride beside her. He let out his breath slowly, wondering where this sudden admiration of his friend’s physical appearance was coming from. As he considered the uncertainty of these new and stirring feelings, he was without a doubt very certain about one thing. If Kiernan knew, she would bash his skull in.”
Valerie Zambito, An Oath of the Blood

Valerie Zambito It's funny because I don't even know how I got there! One of my searches pulled it up.

Anyway, thanks, Shawn. Enjoy what is left of your weekend.

Shawn Wickersheim Thank you for the kind words on my blog. I really should try to update it more often, however lately, I've been spending most of my 'free' time finishing up the final edits for The Rush of Betrayal: Absolution (Book Two). Once I'm done with that, I'll begin work on a sequel novel to The Penitent Assassin (which will also be a sequel, of sorts, to The Rush of Betrayal books). I hope you have a great weekend.

Happy Reading. :)

Valerie Zambito You, too, Eric! Thank you.

Eric Birk Thanks for being my Goodreads friend.

Valerie Zambito Thank you, Sadie. Your book has been in my Kindle for a while now, and I can't wait to get to it. If you want to grab a free copy of Island Shifters off Smashwords, let me know and I'll give you a coupon.

Sadie Forsythe I saw your Island Shifters books on Mysti's big giveaway this morning. So wished I lived in the US so I could have nabbed at least one of them. They look REALLY good.
