Cool Mention in PW for Bloodlands!

Just thought I'd share this piece of coolness: In the most recent issue of Publisher's Weekly (June 27), there's a short article on page 60 about speculative fiction and how there are a lot of books coming out that can't be easily classified. Bloodlands is one of them! They call it a postapocalyptic supernatural western that subverts all three categories.

Big smiles. : )

Hey, all!

Ace is re-releasing the final book in the Vampire Babylon trilogy tomorrow (Tuesday). DEEP IN THE WOODS will be on the shelves in mass market format now!

Just as a reminder, this release is in anticipation of my new trilogy launch under the name Christine Cody. Hang in there for the last week in July, when the first Bloodlands book arrives!

Starred PW Review

The reviews for Bloodlands are starting to come in, and I'm happy to say that I got my first starred review from Publisher's Weekly. Here's what they have to say:

Cody (a pseudonym for Chris Marie Green, author of the Vampire Babylon series) effectively merges science fiction, horror, and the classic western in this spectacular trilogy launch. Near-future America has shattered into isolated human sanctuaries while government-sanctioned Shredders hunt the preternatural monsters that haunt the wilderness. A lone vampire, Gabriel, arrives at an underground refuge deep in the Badlands, where a group of desert homesteaders are being threatened by a wealthy new settler, Stamp, and his gang of thugs. Wary, traumatized Mariah Lyander and her sentient canine companion reluctantly offer Gabriel shelter. His attraction to Mariah draws him into conflict with Stamp, at the risk of revealing the vampire nature he is determined to suppress. Ingeniously subverting traditional themes, Cody skillfully builds near-claustrophobic suspense, finally revealing the true nature of monstrosity. (Aug.)

Stay tuned, because Comic-Con announcements are coming soon!

Whatcha Readin'? 6/14/11

I've started a new project (my paranormal epic fantasy--whoo!), so I'm currently doing a lot of research. But I've picked up a couple of paranormal stories, too, just to get me back in that frame of mind....

* Chosen by Blood by Virna DePaul
I just started this, but I like the world, which consists of vampire clans, vampire royalty, and other assorted paranormal creatures. I hear things get pretty hot in this book, as well, so I'm looking forward to that.

* Archangel's Kiss by Nalini Singh
This is the second book in the Guild Hunter series. Just started this one, too, but I'm already steeped in angels and vampires and danger...oh, my.

I have Game of Thrones on deck, but I'm waiting to start until after the season finale on HBO next week. (I don't want to be spoiled!) After last week's shocker of an episode, I'm dying to know what's going to happen next. I wouldn't be surprised if I made a great effort to read all the books that exist in the series right now during the summer.

Any good stories you all are reading?
