Well, hello there

I'll keep this short since I know there are a bunch of intros here. Hello! I'm Michelle Rowen and I write the Immortality Bites series for Grand Central Publishing that started with Bitten & Smitten. I'm very happy to be officially considered a reluctant adult. I've been reluctantly adult for quite a while now, but there has been no specific designation of this. ;-)

I write books about vampires, demons, angels and other sundry creatures. The aim is that they're supposed to be humorous, but I consider what I write "fun with angst." Sort of a comedy-drama deal. Sometimes I even succeed.

Anyhoooo... I'm also joining the ranks as a young adult author later this year with my Demon Princess series for Walker Books for Young Readers. And next year I have a new series with Berkley Books about humorous paranormal romance demonic possession sparking up.

I also write as Michelle Maddox...my first book under that name, Countdown, is currently a Romantic Times Reviewer's Choice nominee for Best Fantasy/Futuristic as well as a PEARL nominee. This is less with the funny and more with the thriller feel. Thus the pen name.

Come visit me on my website at www.michellerowen.com and my personal blog www.michellerowen.com/blog.

I'd love to give away a signed book from my backlist to a commenter. See pics for what's available -- you choose! I'll draw a winner on Friday!

Very happy to be a part of this blog. I think we're going to have lots of fun!

--Michelle :-)

Demon Princess huh? Sounds fabulous and of course, it will be just like everything else you have written. And nope, not brown-nosing as I already own everything that you are giving away so you do not need to enter me. Just telling it like it is. Michelle rocks!!

They all look great! I have had countdown on my to buy list for a while (stupid budget....stupid husband not letting me break said budget!)
Michelle Rowen said…
Thanks for the wonderful comments everyone!

Jackie... I do want to write more Maddox books in the future but at the moment I'm focusing on my Rowen books at the moment. I will have a short story in next year's Mammoth Book of Time Travel Romance as Maddox, though.
