Here's hoping cats do have nine lives
I’m on trial for my life. Accused of infecting my human ex-boyfriend—and killing him to cover up the crime. I’m not guilty. But tell that to the panel of Alphas sitting in judgment. Infecting a human is one of three capital offenses recognized by the Pride—along with murder and disclosure of our existence to a human.
I’m two for three. A goner.
On top of that, Marc is in danger of being tossed from the Pride, then we discovered a rogue stray terrorizing the mountainside, hunting a wild teenage tabbycat. I think I can protect her from both the ambitious rogue and the scheming of the territorial council.
If I survive my own trial…
Pride is available for pre-order at Barnes and Noble, Borders, Books-A-Million, and Amazon
Um... hello! Tell me that doesn't sound interesting (and I WILL stab you with a pencil if you tell me it doesn't.).
I'm going to try my darnedest to get to Mecca so I can get it; but when you're a poor college student, you shouldn't be spending you pennies on books.
Again, some girls buy shoes...
But! Not only do I love the books, but I almost obsessive compulsively read Rachel Vincent's blog. And you should too. Especially if you like writing. She has great tips AND she updates daily (except weekends). For example, I have done a lot of research on how writers plot their books and I stole a lot from her as well as other sources. Since I do have a white board next to me right now, pleading me to start plotting my latest story idea, I think she has the biggest influence. (Time for the So Write! plug: check out the latest discussion in So Write! about how we amateurs plot our stories!)
Oh, and Rachel Vincent has the best contests.
Which, uh, this post is for. I mean, I would write this anyway, since I love her books so much, but... yeah... now the cat is out of the bag. Or would that be werecat? (Sorry for the kinda unintended pun.)
But, honestly, check out her blog, go buy all her books, and wait, like me, with baited breath for the release of Prey, her fourth book, which comes out on July 1st. Yeah, I haven't even read Pride yet and I want Prey to be out.
I think that says a lot.
