Blessed Events

As promised, I am wrangling all upcoming events about Cynthia Leitich Smith’s release of Blessed, Book 3 of the Tantalize Series. I am thrilled for her and I can’t wait to read the book.

First, the great reviews:

“A guardian angel joins forces with an unusually humane vampire and a host of shape-shifters in this appealing melding of characters from Smith’s earlier novels, Tantalize (2007) and Eternal (2009) The pages fairly smolder…[and] readers will again be pulled into this wild and ultimately fascinating…alternate universe.” Kirkus Reviews

“As in the first two novels, the main attractions are the clever and campy blend of the supernatural and the everyday and the thoroughly entertaining characters, human and otherwise…A hearty meal for the thinking vampire reader.” Horn Book

Even the Austin American Statesman got in some praise.

Now for the PARTY!!!

On Saturday, January 29 (that’s right, tomorrow) go to Book People at 2pm where Cyn and Mari Mancusi will be having a joint release party of Cyn’s Blessed and Mari’s Night School.

Event is open and free to the public! The celebration will include author talks, a Q&A panel, book raffle, surprise giveaways, devilish desserts, demonic drinks and signing.

Wear red and black if you’re on the side of Evil or blue and black if you’re on the side of Good.

Bonus points (and possible prize) to anyone who dresses up as a vampire, shape shifter, vampire slayer, angel, or fairy!

After the party, Cyn will head for a book tour in the New York and New Jersey. Cool, eh?

Still not interested in getting out of the barca lounger? Okay watch this, then maybe I’ll see you at Book People tomorrow.
