Hey everyone! It’s Tuesday and you know what that means… I have here today another awesome author doing a guest post and giveaway =)

Today let’s give a warm welcome to Urban Fantasy author Jess Haines! I met Jess this past September at the AAD2010 in New Jersey and she is so nice, it was a pleasure meeting her… Her debut book, Hunted By The Others, has been in my wishlist for a long time and meeting her just made it more clear that I needed to read it. I even got a signed copy of Hunted By The Others and I brought it with my on the trip I;m in, so I plan to read it very soon =D

Jess has been super awesome and wrote a great guest post, which actually some characters of the H&W Investigations Series talking about their New Year’s plans and she has also been kind enough to offer a SIGNED copy of the second book in the series, Taken By The Others, to a lucky winner!

Disclaimer: “Taken By The Others” comes" out on January 4th and Jess doesn't have her copies in hand yet. For that reason it might be a couple of weeks before she can ship the prize out.

Now, I’ll leave the floor to Jess, Take it away…

The H&W Gang Talks About What They Do On New Year’s Day

By Jess Haines

Hello there! Jess Haines here. I’m the author of the urban fantasy novel HUNTED BY THE OTHERS and its upcoming sequel TAKEN BY THE OTHERS (coming January 4, 2011 from Kensington). I’d like to take a moment to introduce you to some of the cast—Shiarra Waynest, the lead character, Sara, her business partner, Chaz, her on-and-off werewolf boyfriend, Arnold, a mage who occasionally lends the girls a hand, and Alec Royce, a vampire Shiarra meets in the course of her adventures.

Shiarra and her friends are going to talk about how they spend their New Year’s day. Over to you, Shia!


Chaz: New Year’s day? I love going to see the latest blockbuster to hit the theaters.

Sara: I like going to Rockefeller Park to go ice skating.

Arnold: Yikes. I’d probably fall and break my ass.

Sara: That’s okay, sweetie. You can watch me for a bit, and then we can go get some hot chocolate and snuggle.

Royce: Ugh.

Shiarra: I think this year I’m going to go to the Museum of Modern Art. I haven’t gone there in a while.

Arnold: Oh, oh, I want to see the Tim Burton exhibit! Do they still have it?

Sara: I hope they do, that sounds like fun!

Chaz: Awesome!

Shiarra: Man, I can’t wait. Looking forward to waking up to a beautiful sunrise, a nifty parade, and—

Royce: Do you mind?

Shiarra: ..excuse me?

Sara: Oh. OH. Yeah, Shia, that wasn’t nice.

Chaz: What, sunrise?

Royce: Yes, you insensitive cretin.

Shiarra: Oh, please. This isn’t about you.

Royce: Then why am I here?

Chaz: Because we like to see you suffer?

Sara: Wow, that was cold.

Royce: Honestly.

Shiarra: Come on, you don’t do something special on New Year’s? Even if it isn’t during the day, sun shining, birds singing in the trees…

Royce: Ms. Waynest, if you keep this up, I’m going to be forced to do something to make your New Year’s day one you’ll never forget.

Everyone: …

Shiarra: …what?

Chaz: Are you hitting on my girlfriend?

Royce: What? That was a threat, you idiot!

Shiarra: That was really creepy. In a pervy way.

Royce: That just goes to show where your mind is when it comes to me.

Chaz: I dislike your tone.

Shiarra: I dislike him. Period.

Royce: Somehow I doubt that.

Shiarra: Violently. Dislike you. Violently.

Sara: Hey, pervy vamp man?

Royce: Don’t call me that.

Sara: Are you being grumpy because you’ll be spending New Year’s day alone?

Royce: Hardly.

Arnold: Oooh, think you touched a sore point there.

Chaz: He should spend it alone. Who the hell wants to share a coffin with a leech?

Royce: I’m not about to share my list of conquests in a public forum, but if you want to compare notes later—

Shiarra: I don’t think so.

Chaz: But honey—

Shiarra: NO.

Royce: *smirks*

Chaz: You and me, buddy. Later.

Royce: I’m looking forward to it, dog.

Shiarra: ….ew.


Er, ew. Okay, what about you, folks? How are you planning to spend your New Year’s

Thanks again for having me and the gang over, Larissa!
