Spotlight Post: The Starving Years by Jordan C Price

Psst! Today’s Spotlight features one of my most favorite Urban Fantasy Authors doing what she does best: giving you awesome books…for free! That’s right FOR FREE. But let me break it down for you:

Who: macabre Queen of Urban Fantasy, Jordan C Price!

What: The Starving Years, her MMM Dystopian Romance:

starving yearsImagine a world without hunger.

In 1960, a superfood was invented that made starvation a thing of the past. Manna, the cheaply manufactured staple food, is now as ubiquitous as salt in the world’s cupboards, pantries and larders.

Nelson Oliver knows plenty about manna. He’s a food scientist—according to his diploma, that is. Lately, he’s been running the register at the local video rental dive to scrape together the cash for his outrageously priced migraine medication.

In a job fair gone bad, Nelson hooks up with copywriter Javier and his computer-geek pal Tim, who whisks them away from the worst of the fiasco in his repurposed moving truck. At least, Nelson thinks those two are acquainted, but they’re acting so evasive about it, he’s not sure how they know each other, exactly. Javier is impervious to Nelson’s flirting, and Tim’s name could appear in the dictionary under the entry for “awkward.” And with a riot raging through Manhattan and yet another headache coming on, it doesn’t seem like Nelson will get an answer anytime soon.

One thing’s for sure, the tension between the three of them is thick enough to cut with a knife…even one of those dull plastic dealies that come in the package with Mannariffic EZ-Mealz.

When: now through April 8th

Where: Amazon

How: Do you read in Mobi? Or are you a Kindle Unlimited user? Yes? No? Get on it…now! For a limited time, JCP’s groundbreaking book, The Starving Years, will be free for Kindle and Kindle Unlimited. Get it, devour it, and then go on to read all of her amazing urban fantasy reads and then demand why you never did it before!

Book reveal: Canine (A Channeling Morpheus short) by Jordan Castillo Price

I haven’t been quiet about it but then why should I be? WHO COULD BE?! My love for all things Jordan C. Price is an overflowing bucket that can’t be stanched. She can write gritty urban fantasy about a world like ours where short-term memories can be implanted by memory smiths (the entire Mnevermind series got a 10/10 from ILYAF) and another where psychic cops dominate the police force, tracking criminals from beyond the grave (the Psycop series). She recently rereleased Books 1-5 of her Channeling Morpheus series as a box set entitled, Channeling Morpheus for Scary Mary, and the other half of the series, A Bitter Taste of Sweet Oblivion Books 6-10 will be out on 4/21/2015.

Never heard of Channeling Morpheus? Well, let me break it down for you: imagine the sexiest, smuttiest vampires ever. Give them to Jordan C. Price and watch her warp them into an extremely carnal vampire saga involving frolicking, killing, and van sex. Is there really anything left to say?

The best bit of all this? She’s releasing a Channeling Morpheus novella the same day. Take a peek at the cover, blurb, and excerpt after the jump…

Score: 10/10

Let’s do a little role playing cause you all know Judith loves that:

You: man, I really need a new book to read. Something…gritty? Urban fantasy-esque but without all the trappings of the genre. Maybe some m/m. A bit sexy, a lot introspective…

The world: JORDAN C PRICE’s MNEVERMIND OH MY GOD READ IT.

You: Naw, man. I want something that–

The world: Shut up! You need to read this book. Read it, read it, read it.

Chorus of authors and trusted book sources: Read it, read it, read it readitreaditreadit REAAAAAD ITTTTT.
