  • I reviewed a book last month called Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Ready. It was an romantic urban fantasy about a radio station run by vampires. Now, I know this won't appeal to everyone on this board, but it really was a good book.

    Here's what Amazon has to say about it...

    Newbie marketing intern Ciara Griffin lands a job at WMMP, a station threatened with being sold to Skyware, a giant communications conglomerate, unless ad revenue picks up. A former con artist with a canny way with people, Ciara soon learns that the DJs are undead and specialists in the musical eras in which they were turned into vampires. One of them, Shane McAllister (turned in 1995), is really hot and dangerously tempting. In order to attract more listeners, Ciara promotes a new marketing strategy and the Sherwood, Md., station becomes 94.3 WVMP, the Lifeblood of Rock and Roll, exploiting the fang factor (which no listener takes seriously) for profit. It works, until an ancient vampire cult wants to pull the plug. Also playing in is The Control, an equally ancient paramilitary group created to protect good vampires and kill bad ones. Smith-Ready's musical references are spot on, as is her take on corporate radio's creeping airwave hegemony. Add in the irrepressible Ciara, who grew up in a family of grifters, and the results rock.

    Anyhow, what I'm getting at is, if you think this sounds like a book you might enjoy reading then you need to check out the blog I help admin (yes, I'm plugging it again, but it's for a good cause- your's ) because Jeri is our guest blogger for 5/7, and she's going to be giving away a free copy of her book to one lucky person who leaves a comment for her.

  • Even though this isn't my typical kind of read, the concept is pretty interesting, so I left a comment. Thanks for the heads-up, R!

  • Cool. Good luck, Rudi.

    I'm not doing the random draw for Jeri until tomorrow morning, so there's still plenty of time to drop by.
