2013 is the Year of Dante!!!  In addition to hosting a review stop (complete with giveaway!) on the 2013 Belongs to Dante Tour, I also had the opportunity to attend The Collector Release Party on Saturday.  I just love Victoria Scott to death.  She's just so funny and sweet and an overall awesome human being, and even better?  She's a Dallasite like myself!  The second I found out she'd be doing a signing here, I knew I had to
rearrange my schedule so that I could attend.

There were cupcakes and a raffle and general merriment, but sadly, I couldn't stay long. I'd had a ru-heally long day, thanks to getting up at 5am for that 5k run my sis conned me into signing up for, plus I had to get home to my kiddo so my husband could get to his plans for the night.  But don't think I didn't consider it when V invited us to attend the adult release party at Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa!  :D

And thanks to spending the entire day with my sis, I am **THIS** close to getting her to agree to be my co-blogger.  We're still working out the arrangement and there are stipulations, but I am so excited!  If Dante had told her to do it sooner, she probably would have jumped at the chance.  He is that good!  =)




And, being the awesome person that she is, Victoria signed an extra copy of The Collector for me to giveaway right here:

You know you want it!

  14. I just read Wicked Nights (book 1 in Gena Showalter's Angels of the Dark series, and I really liked it. (Have Beauty Awakening, book 2, in my TBR pile too!) I'd agree it's a pretty good Heaven vs. Hell story.

    For YA, I liked Lisa Desrochers' Personal Demons trilogy quite a lot.

  22. I would have to go with Daughter of Smoke and Bone, It's not exactly heaven/hell setting, but the emotions and characters give you a feel of warring factions, and the plot gives you the choice to decide if appearances or actions make the person who they are.

  23. J.R. Ward's Fallen Angels series.

  24. Oh no... why US only ;( Oh that autograph looks so good. Well I already read the book so I at least got the chance to enjoy Dante's presence but it would have been nice to have a signed copy.
    I wish I lived in the US mainly so I could meet authors... you guys are so lucky...
