My author guest & contest are a day late but I hope it was worth the wait :)

This week author Chloe Neill is here and she is talking about her numbers! Chloe made a big entrance to the Urban Paranormal circuit with her debut book Some Girls Bite. The Chicagoland Vampires have a huge following and book three is out now! Here Young Adult series about the Dark Elite was also a hit and I am certainly looking forward to reading more by this author.

So check out Chloe's numbers and then enter the contest!
