February is the month of Valentines Day and all things about loooooveeee! So, Jenny from Supernatural Snark are celebrating this month with you and some of our favorite Authors!
Jenny and I are both big fat suckers of romance, and if a story doesn’t have some tiny bit of romance we usually don’t fully enjoy the book. We love to swoon over the boys and we love to feel the butterflies of first love and intensely touching romance!For each Friday in February two authors is going to share a Love Letter with us, which you can find here at the Bookworms and at Supernatural Snark. This will be either from the author to one of her characters or between characters. And, we can assure you that this is going to be swoon worthy wonderful!
We kicked of the Event with Katie McGarry (here at the Bookworms) and with Wendy Higgins over at Supernatural Snark. Two wonderful, swoon worthy love letters that were absolutely amazing. Katie shared a love letter from Isaiah to Rachel which is just beyond wonderful! Last week I had Sara B.Larson here who debut this year with the YA Fantasy DEFY, which I loved so very much! She wrote a letter to her character Marcel, which will bring you to tears!
Today I have someone also very special with me. Gena Showalter is a woman and author I absolutely admire and adore so very much! She’s a genius, she’s incredible creative and writes books so fast I think she must be Super Woman!
Dear Cole, Yours Gena
Ever since you walked onto the pages of Alice in Zombieland, I’ve been in love with you. In Through the Zombie Glass, I fell even deeper. (Naughty, naughty boy!) But as I finished writing the third book in the White Rabbit Chronicles series, The Queen of Zombie Hearts, I decided to marry you and have a million of your babies. I know, I know. I’m old enough to be your—well, I’m older. We’ll just leave it at that. But everything about you fascinates me. Your black hair and violet eyes. Your strength and courage in the midst of the world’s most violet zombie war. Your unwavering commitment to protect your friends, even though you have to put your own life at risk. Your tattoos and nipple ring. Your secrecy. Your bossiness and occasional bad attitude—yep, even those. You are as tough as steel, and yet you melt for one girl. In the books you call her Ali. In my heart you call her Gena.
I know I put you through hell in The Queen of Zombie Hearts. You lose friends, face new enemies and the worst sort of betrayal. But I’m asking you to forgive me. Because it is our happily ever after that counts…right?
Yes Gena!!! Every Word You Say and more!! How can we not love Cole?!?!?! I also fell deeply in love with Cole in Alice in Zombieland and I think he’s one of my favorite bad boy boyfriends ever!
This Love Letter from Gena to Cole is just fantastic and again shows how amazing Gena really is and how deeply she cares for her characters!
The Queen of Zombie Hearts
I have a plan.
We’ll either destroy them for good, or they’ll destroy us.
Either way, only one of us is walking away.
In the stunning conclusion to the wildly popular White Rabbit Chronicles, Alice ‘Ali’ Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She’s ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers; until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It’s then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters; and the worst has only begun.
As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies and she isn’t the girl she thought she was. She’s connected to the woman responsible for killing and turning Cole’s mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.
