I’m thrilled to be a part of the KICKING IT blog tour! Some of my very favorite urban fantasy authors contributed shorts to this kick ass anthology. A quick review: Read it. It’s awesome. (Of course, the stories are short stories and I’m always greedy for more…)

New York Times bestselling author Rachel Caine has modern-day potions witches Holly and Andrew facing off against a firebrand politician who wears literally killer boots in a Texas-sized rodeo of trouble.

Boot-loving Cadogan vampire Lindsey must team up with off-again, on-again vampire partner Luc when a woman from her past is targeted by supernaturals in New York Times bestselling author Chloe Neill’s all-new adventure.

And New York Times bestselling author Rob Thurman features Trixa Iktomi from her Trickster series dealing with magical vengeance and magical footwear.

Taking kick-ass urban fantasy literally, USA Today bestselling authors Kalayna Price and Faith Hunter bring together the best of the genre to once again prove when you’re fighting supernatural forces, it helps to keep your feet on the ground.

One of those awesome writers is CHRIS MARIE GREEN, who writes the Vampire Babylon and has a new upcoming series called Ghost for Hire. Even though it’s just a taste, here’s a little KICKING IT excerpt from her short story, The Girl With No Name.

I whipped off the covers, then gaped. A pair of boots—and not any sort of boots I’d seen before now. (As if I even faintly knew what I had seen before now.) These boots came to just below my knees, and they appeared to be made of…vines? A dark green mass of attractively entwined strands, wrapping round calves and feet, as if I had just now stepped off nature’s catwalk.

Chris’ next release:

Watch for ONLY THE GOOD DIE YOUNG, the first book in my Ghost for Hire series coming out in February, 2014! Faith Hunter even gave me a good quote for it, LOL.

My name is Jensen Murphy, and thirty years ago I was just an ordinary California girl. I had friends, family, a guy who might be The One. Ordinary—until I became a statistic, one of the unsolved murders of the year. Afterwards, I didn’t go anywhere in pursuit of any bright light—I stayed under the oak tree where my body was found, and relived my death, over an over. So when a psychic named Amanda Lee Minter pulled me out of that loop into the real world, I was very grateful.

So I’m now a ghost-at-large—rescued by Amanda (I found out) to be a supernatural snoop. I’m helping her uncover a killer (not mine—she promises me we’ll get to that) which should be easy for a spirit. Except that I’ve found out that even ghosts have enemies, human—and otherwise…

Prizes include signed books, swag, and even hand-made jewelry! Fifteen winners will each receive one of the prize packs, and every pack includes a copy of KICKING IT! We had fun divvying up all the stuff, hope you’re excited to win!

  1. Oh, wow, these authors are all my favorites! I adore Neill, and Hunter, and Price and Caine! I still haven’t read anything by Green, but Ghost for Hire sounds perfect for me. That’s one new series I surely won’t miss.
    Thanks for sharing, Mary.

  2. Oh dude a UF anthology! That’s awesome! I’ve just finished Omens by Kelley Armstrong and I totes need more Adult books in my life (and UF/PRN are basically the only genres I read in adult).

  3. I’m not a big UF reader, but anthologies of any sort have me intrigued, especially authors who I’ve never heard of before! Thanks for putting this book on my radar Mary!

  4. Awesome giveaway! I’ve read some of these authors and I have many others and haven’t got to them yet. I have Chris Marie Greens series and STILL haven’t read it!

  5. Wow, this features an amazing group of authors. I love so many of the series that are featured. I can’t wait to catch up with Maddy and see Luc and Lindsey. I’ll definitely have to check out Chris’s series, they sound really great.
