Carolyn Tann Starr 2011 Jaye Wells

Careful... If you ask I'm gonna tell you to follow @JayeWells. Here's why...

I have a thing for the fabulous Sabina Kane series Jaye Wells created. Irony is until a few weeks ago I had no idea who my recent tweet-peep was but bouncing between three book clubs means I have to keep reading books and dragging poor unsuspecting victims members/readers along for the ride (LOL). If you're into kick-a$$ chicks with issues, moody attitudes and witty banter (like I am) you're gonna really loooooove this series. I started with Red-Headed Stepchild July 26th because @VickiPettersson did a re-tweet letting her tweet-peeps know about a four day Amazon special that had us bookies downloading that puppy into our Kindle apps as fast as we could click two links (LOL).

For those of you who wanted to know why I didn't blog on the 28th it's because I was too busy happily burning through Violet Tendencies, The Mage In Black and Green Eyed Demon (LOL). Finished them today and put them all on our mandatory beach reading list for this week end (evil grin). I'm betting my bookies get hooked on Jaye just like I did. The guys are really starting to get their urban fantasy groove on as well. These aren't sissy-prissy books people. They're a fun, vampy ride so don't let the sexy chicks gracing the covers fool you into passing on a good read. ;-)

Being a book hound and unrepentant speed reader means I have to amuse myself while I wait for Kim, Vicki and Jocelynn to release more material (sigh). I actually go into withdrawal when I can't read my fave authors (and enjoy re-reading their series to feed my book worm addiction - LOL). It helps that they are active in social media and routinely blog so fans can keep up with their projects (and get their questions answered). If one of them gives a thumbs up to another author I tend to take them very seriously and download everything the author has before I decide to do a book review or not. I'm not into spoilers which is why I give you guys the links (LOL).

A good book should be experienced because reading is very subjective. My fave parts of a book may not be your fave parts (especially since I have a quirky, dark and twisty sense of humor - LOL). Jaye had me cracking up over the cat/demon antics (among other things) in Red-Headed Stepchild so at some point during the first read I had already made up my mind to burn through all of her books and discover what other mischief her mind could cook up. Pssst... chicka is brilliant in very devious ways. I get why Vicki likes her (LOL). You will too and should read her books in order... just sayin' (LOL). ;-)

If you're new to my blog you may have missed the fact that I routinely do the virtual urban fantasy kow tow to my three fave urban fantasy divas. Being a Kim Harrison, Vicki Pettersson and Jocelynn Drake fan has lots of neat benefits which includes (a) them really being them writing in their social media accounts and (b) being turned on to really cool urban fantasy authors to read who are just as real and authentic as they are. Jaye spends most of her time in Twitter but you can find her on Facebook if you look. :-)


As usual, all roads lead back to the Kim-Stream (because she started pointing me in the right reading direction at RWANYC when she sent me to go find and read Vicki and said cool things about Jocelynn and Vicki in her blog comments - LOL). You can almost build an urban fantasy author family tree with our book club Kindle selections based upon who these three women compliment (LOL). We're the virtual fans from hell who read, blog, read some more, argue, laugh then pick a book or series to go viral on (poor Jaye now has the Vicki-Joce-Kimi pack hounding her virtual twitter heels - LOL). ;-)

Soooooooo ya' wanna know more about what the we heart Jaye Wells fuss is all about? Start by taking a peek at http://jayewells.com where you can lurk on her cool blog, find out how to pre-order Silver Tongued Devil on Amazon.com, read Chapter One of THE MAGE IN BLACK (Sabina Kane Book Two) and Chapter One of GREEN-EYED DEMON (Sabina Kane Book Three). Then go follow @JayeWells on Twitter and go have some urban fantasy fun sharing her work with your own friends. Chicka will actually answer you back so don't be a twitter pest if you do join the fan ranks.

BTW, her Amazon biography is kind of a fun blurb: "After several years as a magazine editor and freelance writer, Jaye Wells finally decided to leave the facts behind and make up her own reality. Her overactive imagination and life-long fascination with the arcane and freakish blended nicely with this new career path. Her Sabina Kane urban fantasy series is a blend of dark themes, grave stakes and wicked humor. Jaye lives in Texas with her saintly husband and devilish son."

Starbucks is closing. Book Club is done. We're packing up to go home and burn through all things Jeaniene Frost. We're saving her for Monday (LOL). ;-)
