Time For FUN!!!

I am warning you now, I am going to be blogging almost daily if I can the rest of the week. Like I said, I have a lot to catch up on and I don't want to dump one hugenormous never-ending blog on you that you won't want to read.

So....what is the fun, you ask?

Has it really been so long that you think it's going to be that easy???

I wanted to let you know that there are going to be some changes to the website. Great changes. The excerpt from Damien will go up soon...and so will Noah's!! Only...hehehe...Noah's will be under lock and key and only YOU can unlock it. It's a fun game with a chance to win an ARC weekly at it's heart. :) FUN!! But...err...did I mention you can't get to it until you find the key? Yep. And the key is only to be found in Damien :P. FUN!!!

But while they are working on THAT fun, I wanted to tell you that the NOAH ARCs have arrived!! Actually I have been sitting on them for two weeks already. I am dying to give these gorgeous books away. However, because Damien doesn't come out til the 3rd, anything you win now will not come until a week after Damien's release date....and that would be just mean! (Although not nearly as mean as the winner of the very first ARC at my RT party who has it in her hot little hands and must resist! (Or...at least she said she would!!)

But I am ready to give Noah to a lucky person who comments in this blog today about who their favorite Nightwalker series character is and why.

A winner will be chosen randomly and announced tomorrow :)

Oh, I totally have to tell you this. Yesterday I found out that one of my fans loves Noah so much that she named her baby boy after MY Noah! How freakishly weird yet awesomely cool is that?? LOL. Nah, Noah is a wonderful name. That's why I picked it! I thought that had to be the ultimate compliment. She doesn't know it yet, but that just earned her an ARC. :) (CRYSTAL THIS MEANS YOU....email your snail mail address to me at jacquelynfrank@hotmail.com!!)

That's why I picked the contest theme for the day. I am ready to give Noah to a lucky person who comments in this blog today about who their favorite Nightwalker series character is and why.

Have FUN!!!
Hugs and Kitties,
Jacki

I would have to say Jacob because his story grabbed me from the beginning. There's just something about him that makes me...ohhh *fans self*.

Piercedfreak said...

I know my favorite character is Noah. I just love him! He is a strong character, who I can't wait to read his story. I can't even put it into words why i like him, since I first read Jacob he has been my favorite, and I was hoping his book would be next. But that is okay, save the best for last. :) Jackie, thanks so much for sharing these characters with us.

The guys are all great but I love Jacob. He ends up saving a damsel in distress (Isabella) only to find out she can kill his kind it was an accident really. Along with blowing up the king and his home oh boy talk about a ruff day. Jacob and Isabella are a great couple and I love how she is such a book worm and a history geek.

Joy said...

Gideon is my favorite so far although I'm sure that will change once I read Damien :).

I like Gideon because of his discipline. I love that fact that he exiled himself when he thought that he had succumbed to the Hallowed moon rather than risk it happening again.

whitney said...

As much as I love all the guys and I really do. I have to say that the brief encounter with Windsong and her power has endeared her to me. There is so much mystery to her that I hope will be cleared up in later books. I would love to hear her whole story and leanr more about her.

Nicole said...

Asking me who my favorite Nightwalker is, is like asking me what my favorite chocolate is. "I love them all!" I have a soft spot for Jacob because he was my first *grins* Gideon is intense. Elijah is a warrior through and through, and Damien ooozes sensuality. Then there is Noah *sigh* I am dying for the King's story. Dying. I can't choose between them. They each have that something special that makes me go GUH. I love the guys, their fantastic stories and their amazing book covers.

CrystalGB said...

My favorite is Gideon. I love how he is a healer and the depth of his love for Magdelegna.

Ada Lato-Esposito said...

Hi Jacki...my fav is the dark, dangerous but mostly deadly dee... lish...us vamp, Damien!
He is a dark seductive vamp who luves 2 embraces every aspect of his sensuality. YUMMY! Or should I say 'BITE ME!'. *LOL* I'm looking 4ward 2 reading his story. Good luck every1! Ada:)

Amanda said...

I loved Gideon, his power, his need, his control, his utter love for Magdelegna. So hot.

Jackie said...

I have to say my favorite character is Gideon. His was the first book I've read and he just drew me into his world. I've heard some say that he is a little too dry, but he was, and is, the most interesting that I've read to date.

Pamk said...

Though Jacob will always hold a special place in my heart cause he was my first. I loved loved loved Gideon. He thought he was so all knowing and wise and my lord did Legna lead him on a dance. When it comes down to it though love is a great equalizer. Their's is a beautiful relationship.

Barbara said...

My favorite character? Definitely Legna! Are you kidding me? Only a real woman (demon) would be able to not only handle Gideon. The all wise and knowing, Gideon, HA! I have to admit I loved the fact that she could dish it just as good as he could, if not better! She didn't take his crap! She was young and vivacious and he was older and reserved. Not for nothing, but Gideon needed a little spice in his life and Legna was the perfect one to give it :)

Lin said...

Jacob is still my favorite character. His jealous behavior is amusing. It was wonderful to watch the relationships develop. I loved where he struggled with his conscience when had to deal with anyone that got out of line but still stayed loyal to the laws of the nioghtwalkers and his loyalty yo Noah, but was also accepting to the changes that were needed.

Stacy L. said...

I don't think anyone will be surprised by my answer. LOL NOAH!!! Why? Because he is MINE, ALL MINE! **evil laugh** Ange never stood a chance.

Seriously, though. From the moment he appeared in Jacob I knew he was the one for me. He was so strong, emotionally, as well as, physically. I loved how he balanced the needs of his people with the needs of those close to him. It didn't hurt that Jacki made him so damn HOT too!

Beth said...

Hi Jacki! I'd have to go with Elijah as my favorite. He's strong, courageous, steamy, and loves a were queen. How could that not be the best character? <3

Swallowing Darkness said...

I would have to say Noah is my favorite. The way he cares of Legna, and how he shoulders all his responsibility and the depth of his caring for Jacob. One my favorite scenes with him that's so simple is when he hears Jacob truly laugh for the first time, how happy that seems to make him. He's just a very strong character, I can't wait to see what his lady is. Gideon however runs a very close second. He's so controlled and mysterious.

s.f.martin said...

Mine of course is Noah, I love the fact that despite being a powerful fire demon with a reportedly BAD temper (when he loses it!) and a warriors huge body, he's kind, thoughtful, and a scholar who is able to learn from the past mistakes of his people and embrace change, forging new alliances and learning from other Nightwalker species. These are the qualities that attracted me to him also the fact that despite being King he's not afraid to get his hands dirty and fight side by side with his warriors - what more could you want in a guy?

Bobbie said...

My favorite Nightwalker series character is Jacob. My choice of Jacob is based primarily upon how, as an Enforcer, Jacob had such an absolutely inflexible code of morality and understanding of black and white about relationships and women, especially human women, which was often so amusing when his character didn’t intend it to be funny. (Great job with that, Jackie) He didn’t have the advantage of being someone already sexy because of having the power of being the King, or the Captain of the Guard. His character has a basically thankless and dangerous grunge job that required centuries of absolute control, which made it so amazingly erotic when his control was completely shattered when he touched his mate. Having this character be the first to discover that he was actually mated to a human, when he was taught for centuries that it was so taboo, made the humanity and humor of his dialogue even more wonderful. Jacob’s strength and protectiveness just made me melt.

Ashleym said...

Hi Jacki,

I have to say my favorite character is Isabella she kicks butt and has Jacob wrapped around her little finger =D

Jacquelyn Frank said...

ASh....I love that too!!

What i really love is listening to you all see the depth of my peeps from the pages and GET IT. You just so totally get it!

MWAH!!

Shayna said...

I think Noah is my favorite of the Nightwalkers. He has a lot of responsibility on his shoulders, but he doesn't let it overpower him. What his position as king entails might make lesser males lose touch with their humanity (for lack of a better term) in order to do what's best for their people. Noah never loses that. He is loving and protective of his family and friends. He cares for them, watches out for them, etc. All of the Nightwalker males are strong and loving, but for me, Noah stands above the rest.

I have to say one of my favorite scenes is Noah talking to Leah :)

Lynn said...

I would have to say that my favorite character is Isabella. She is a classic bookworm (a woman after my own heart). She proves a woman can be smart, sexy, strong and still manage to wrap a demon around her finger. I couldn't pick just one of the Nightwalkers men because they all sound insanely sexy.

Hayley said...

My favourite character has to be Jacob, the why is my insane insistence in remaining loyal to the first main character in a series of books. Although I love Gideon, Elijah and Noah it was Jacob who was my first love and his pyscho threats to the council in the series only endears him to me more.

Susie said...

Hi Jackie,

I honestly love them all! It's too cruel to just pick one! Jacob's protectiveness, Gideon's power, Elijah's sensitivity, Damien sounds so dangerous and as for Noah I think theres so much hidden away in there! I love the way they love their mates,(and kids!!) can't wait to hear more. **Giggles**
And can we say something about the beautiful, smart, powerful and sexy women you've paired with these delicious demons. Can't wait for Damien and Noah, sad it'll be over but anxiously waiting to see what comes in the Shadowdwellers series!!

Happy writing,
Susie

DreamWeaver said...

How can I choose just one Nightwalker? The are all special in their own unique way. I would have to say that Elijah holds a special place in my heart. He is gorgeous and built like a warrior *sigh* yet he is sensitive and protective of his mate. He is also so confident in himself that he doesn't feel threatened by the fact that his mate is a queen.

Sage said...

Jacki,
I would have to say that my favorite character is now Damien...... but I can't say why!! Well, I guess I could, but that would just be mean! And although I am mean on occasion, I would not do that to any of the wonderful people here!! So, just trust me when I say, Damien is HOT!!!!

First I would like to start off by saying that I LOOOVE this series and I am so thrilled that Damien and Noah will be out soon! I just created a blogger account so I could enter this contest and I don't really know what I am doing (alas I not computer savy at all) so I really hope this works and I am crossing my fingers, haha.

My favorite Nightwalker character of all time would have to be Bella. I think this is probably because I can relate to her, and more importantly I envy her and wish I could be her, lol!

Here is my reasoning:

1) Bella is extremely smart and well read. I am in grad school right now and I hate reading textbooks (most of them confuse me or put me to sleep) and so I have got to love a gurl that can tackle one and appreciate it fully without ripping her hair out

2) Bella loves history, she learns about the Nightwalkers and their culture readily and soaks up as much knowledge about them as she can

3) Bella has a huge heart. She accepts Jacob and all of his flaws while nurturing him and making him a better male

4) Bella kicks bad guy butt! Even while pregnant she still manages to be brave and go after the evil bad guys while keeping her cool (at least maintaining a level of calm and composure I would never have in her situations and circumstances). Plus, even when being faced with a life or death situation she still tried to fight and protect her baby - this leads me to believe she will be an excellent mama

5) Last but not least, any girl that can beat the bad guy, get covered in yucky substances and ooze, and can later laugh about it has a great personality and is someone I would want to befriend in a heart beat

Yay, thanks a bunch!!! Have a great night everyone, xoxoxo

rjs4444us said...

Hahaha, I actually made a poster yesterday with a count down to both damien and noah on it. I am pumped, lol.

I have to say each Nightwalker carries a special torch for me, Jacob symbols compassion and humilaty,that everybody needs somebody and his achilles' heel is Isabella who in her own right strengthens Jasobs weaknesses. Gideon represents the courage we all face in making the wrong decision and having to be humble to those closest to us when we make our mistakes especaily against the obe we love. Damien represents the heart of the lion but the soul of a poet who loves as hard as he fights. Noah carries the weight of his world on his shoulders, but at the end of the day his family is what keeps him going. Each story is a reminder of life's lessons and what we decide makes us who we are to be.

Autumncat said...

My favorite characters are Bella and Jacob. I had to list both of them because it's who each of them became when they were together that made me love them. I loved their acceptance of each other and their willingness to make adjustments to not only include someone new in their lives but to also merge their cultures. I loved Bella's intelligence, her loyalty and compassion and her defense of Jacob. And I loved Jacob's honor and his utter adoration of Bella. Both characters are wonderful, but it's their interaction that really shows both their vulnerabilities and their strengths. :-)

Savannah Chase said...

Ok that is just so wonderful to have that happen...It is such a wonderful name and I'm not surprised it happened...It must be amazing to hear something like that.

mothermoon said...

I would have to say Elijah (even though its hard to pick only one) He is protective, honorable and willing to die for what he believes in.I also know how I would keep this man busy for a long time OMG.I also think you are personal trying to give me a stroke or heart attack or even kill me with all these hunkies

thewildtwo said...

Hey from Westland to you!!

Come on down!! Errr, up!!

My favorite is Jacob because he was the first!! And it's my son, my baby boy's name!!(Ok, so he's 14...the name still got me, and I had visions of my son grown up when reading it!!)
