Bookish & Bloggish News:The Rachel Caine Edition



PRINCE OF SHADOWS
Out February 4th!
In the Houses of Montague and Capulet, there is only one goal: power. The boys are born to fight and die for honor and—if they survive—marry for influence and money, not love. The girls are assets, to be spent wisely. Their wishes are of no import. Their fates are written on the day they are born.

Benvolio Montague, cousin to Romeo, knows all this. He expects to die for his cousin, for his house, but a spark of rebellion still lives inside him. At night, he is the Prince of Shadows, the greatest thief in Verona—and he risks all as he steals from House Capulet. In doing so, he sets eyes on convent-bound Rosaline, and a terrible curse begins that will claim the lives of many in Verona…

…And will rewrite all their fates, forever.

And make sure to check out the PRINCE OF SHADOWS OFFICIAL TRAILER!

From Kirkus Reviews (starred review):
"Should a successful author of vampire novels (Black Dawn, 2012, etc.) attempt to write an alternative Shakespeare? Thankfully this one did, as the results are delicious. Choosing Romeo and Juliet as her base, Caine expands the story from the viewpoint of Benvolio, Romeo’s Montague cousin. While Shakespeare’s plot clearly anchors Caine’s, the novel focuses on providing context for the well-known story rather than embellishing it ..." read more

Audition News!

Morganville: The Series


We've been promising big news on our upcoming digital television series, and it's HERE.

Due to high demand from Morganville fans, we've decided to offer TWO roles to open auditions from anywhere in the world.These two roles are for CLAIRE and EVE.

If you'd like to audition for either of the roles in MORGANVILLE: THE SERIES, please read and follow these instructions. Failure to follow instructions will mean your audition won't be considered.

INSTRUCTIONS


1. You must be 18 years of age or older. Due to legal and logistical concerns, we can't consider actors below the age of 18 for these parts.


2. Download the PDF scene for the character of your choice.(You can audition for both parts if you wish, but they must be loaded as separate auditions.)

(If you don't have Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can download it free here)


3. Film your audition. (Hint: you can do it using a camera phone, your computer's camera, etc. Production values will not matter. You might find it easier to have a friend read you lines from the other character in the scene, but it's your performance that matters.)

5. Email the link to your audition toclaireauditions@morganvilletheseries.com (for Claire) oreveauditions@morganvilletheseries.com (for Eve) with the subject line of AUDITION VIDEO. (If you're auditioning for both parts, send separate links to separate videos.)  In this email you may also include a headshot and resume, but it is not required.

 

DEADLINE TO AUDITION:
February 14, 2014. 


Cutoff for entries is
