Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Kitty Norville Series by Carrie Vaughn

Katherine - Kitty - Norville was just a normal college student when she was attacked by a werewolf. Guess how you become a werewolf? That's right...get bitten. Her world is turned upside down as she learns to live with the new set of rules that her life now entails. She must contain the wolf inside, learn to handle her heightened strength and sharpened senses.

Her nighttime job as radio DJ seems perfect for her new lifestyle. She is content selecting and playing her favorite music until a chance on air comment about the existence of vampires suddenly has the phone lines lighting up. Seems there are a lot of folks out in radio land who want to know more about the supernatural or have interesting stories to tell. Kitty has a bit of personal experience, not to mention a personal interest, in the topic and it turns out that she has a lot to say.

So, Kitty's radio show, The Midnight Hour, is born and is an immediate success. But, unfortunately for Kitty, it is hard to maintain your anonymity when you are a famous radio personality. The local werewolves are jealous and other supernatural folks are unhappy about having their centuries of quiet existence shattered by a lone werewolf. There are some major complications coming Kitty's way!

This series currently consists of six books:

Kitty and the Midnight Hour

Kitty Goes to Washington

Kitty Takes a Holiday

Kitty and the Silver Bullet

Kitty and the Dead Man's Hand

Kitty Raises Hell


I got into the tour just a bit late and was afraid that I wouldn't be able to read more than one of the books before today. To my surprise, I zipped through the first three and I am halfway through number four! The word for this series is FUN! They are action packed and exciting, I'm blowing through them because I can't seem to put them down. Kitty is an interesting and independent character that is growing and finding her way as the series progresses. I can't wait to see what happens next!

Listen to the Blog Talk Radio interview with Carrie Vaughn, visit her blog and her website.

Okay, now for the REALLY great part. If you would like to win all SIX books, the ENTIRE series so far...I just happen to have a set to give away! So, if you would like to enter, just leave me a comment here, please include your email address if it is not part of your ID. For three extra entries you can become a follower (if you are one already, you are all set), tweet the giveaway on twitter or blog about it and link back here. If you do any of these, please leave me a separate comment to let me know. Winner will be drawn at random and must have a US or Canada mailing address (no PO Boxes, please). Enter until midnight on April 8. Good luck!

Many thanks to Miriam at Hachette Book Group for sending me the books!

About Me

My photo
New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
