Full Moon of Werewolves Schedule

Dark CrusadeYay! Let the howling begin! A Full Moon of Werewolves starts today! 30 days of posts about werewolves by werewolf-loving paranormal romance and urban fantasy authors and Prizes!!

Now, I don’t write werewolves. I write garm, hellhounds and other types of shifters. But Garm are wolves–and since I think I’m the only garm author out there, werewolf it had to be. And I wanted something that tied into my April releases, Dark Crusade and Midnight Cravings–both in bookstores now. :)

The rules are simple, and there is a grand prize of $100 in werewolf books to be had! To enter, comment on individual Full Moon posts. You can comment as much as you want; one comment per post will be counted as an entry. There will also be some daily prizes, as noted on Full Moon schedule. (Prizes shipped to U.S. addresses only unless otherwise indicated in post, all contests end Saturday April 25th at midnight.)

So, let’s get started. For your first official entry, let’s talk werewolf authors. Who is your favorite? Whose book do you race out to buy as soon as it hits the shelf? (Note: some of these books may find there way into that grand prize I mentioned.)

And check back later today (noonish central) to read Michele Hauf’s post.

Buy Lori’s books:


  1. Dinah T

    Shifters’ Rock! I’m not picky, I love them all. But some of my long time favorite shifter authors: Of course Lori, Shelly Laurenston, York, Kenyon……. way to many. Love them all

  2. Zita Hildebrandt

    Werewolf author I must buy and read immediately: Patricia Briggs. Oh, and MaryJanice Davidson. And Charlaine Harris. Hmm, and Kim Harrison. Can’t forget Laurell K. Hamilton. Do we really have to choose just one?

  3. flip

    Patricia Briggs is my favorite, but Carrie Vaughn is a very close second.

  4. Teresa W.

    This is my favorite genre to read and some of my auto-buys for these reads are: Sherrilyn Kenyon, MaryJanice Davidson and Charlaine Harris!

  5. Carol G

    I haven’t particularly gotten into werewolves yet, but Charlaine Harris is an author that I pick up automatically. Since she includes werewolves in her universe, I guess that puts her into the favorite run!

  6. Lisa W.

    Patricia Briggs is my favorite, also love MaryJanice Davidson and sherrilyn Kenyon, and Rebecca York

  7. Tina

    Now this is my kinda book oh YUMMMMMMMMMMMMY :mrgreen:

  9. Edie

    Lori Handeland and Marcia Colette. :cool:

    My favorite writers are Carrie Vaughn and Lori Handeland. Their stories have a great mix of action and romance.

  18. Elise VanCise

    Wonderful event idea! Werewolves are one of my favorite creatures of the night. I have a book about a half vampire and now you’ve inticed me to write the sequal with some other paranormals tossed in. Thanks for the inspiration!

  19. Roberta Harwell

    I haven’t actually read a book about a werewolf yet. I’m learning about this genre. I’m finding it more and more intriguing. I love the Underworld movies. I am hearing a lot about Lora Leigh and Patricia Briggs though. Have a great day.

  20. Pam P

    Howling for those wolves from Patricia Briggs, Shelly Laurenston, Terry Spear, and Sherrilyn Kenyon.

  21. Chris

    Nalini Singh, Larissa Ione, and Patricia Briggs.

  22. kanarytx

    I love Karen Whiddon’s wolves.

  23. Carmen R

    It’s hard to pick just one favorite so I’m going to list a few. Patricia Briggs, Laurell K. Hamilton,MaryJanice Davidson and Carrie Vaughn. There are so many great authors out there and i feel bad because I don’t have time to list all of the ones i like.

  24. Lori

    Great list! A couple of the authors mentioned were ones I wasn’t sure had werewolves in their books. I will definitely be adding a few from here into the grand prize bag!

  25. Barb P

    Hi Lori! So many werewolves, so little time. A few of my favorite werewolf authors are: Cynthia Eden, Kresley Cole, Patrice Michelle, and of course some author by the name Lori Devoti, just to name a few. There are tons more. I Can’t wait for the rest of ” Full Moon of Werewolves ” bash. It’s off to a great start with Michele Hauf!

  26. Shell Bryce

    Well I would have to pick more than one. Patricia Briggs, Susan Sizemore and Keri Arthur are all hilarious and sexy!!!

  27. Jamie

    I am just starting to get into werewolves and I am falling hard and fast.:D I would have to say Patricia Briggs is my favorite so far though!!

  28. Nini

    It begins!

    Sherri Kenyon is my absolute fave, however, I do enjoy Michele Hauf, Vivi Anna (i know, mostly vamps and stuff, but still she’s got a were in her Valorian Chronicles…soon to be Juliana Stone and a few others…)

    Nini :)

  29. Michelle B.

    I love Madelaine Montague’s Wolf series over at NCP, Lora Leigh’s Breeds, Shelly Laurenston’s Pack Challenge….and many more…

  30. pamk

    Patricia Briggs, Shelly Laurenston, Larissa Ione are three of my favorite shifters writers. They all write shifters but they are very different type of books.

  31. Amy S.

    Lorie O’Clare, Lora Leigh, and Shelly Laurenston

  32. Lexie C.

    Hmmm…Bianca D’Arc (Lord of the Weres…oh how I love that book), Ilona Andrews weres in general are lovely fun and Carrie Vaughn is also a fast favorite of mine!

  33. sara hurt

    I have to say Laurell Hamilton is by far my favorite, but Lora Leigh is heading up this list really quickly.

  34. gypsywitch

    savannah russe, love her vampirres

    love your hellhounds lori!

  35. Estella

    At this time Lori Handeland is my favorite.

  36. Karin

    I have to say that, so far, Shelly Laurenston is my absolute favorite werewolf author. I just love how funny all of her characters are. They have some of the most hilarious dialogue that just fits with each character. Not only that, but the pairings have been absolutely perfect.

  37. LadyVampire2u

    Well, your books of course are favorites of mine. And then there are the shifters in Laurell K Hamilton, Kelley Armstrong and Kresley Cole’s books. But to be honest I have so many werewolf authors I like. Many of my all time favorites are named above.

  38. Ley

    Absolute favorite is… Patricia Briggs! Love, love, love her. All her books, not just the Mercy Thompson and Alpha and Omega series. More names are coming to mind, but I’d better not start the rave, or I might not stop!

  39. Ashley Madden

    I’m not particularly picky about authors, so it doesn’t really matter. I love books about all sorts of the paranormal :razz:

  40. CrystalGB

    I love Keri Arthur, Lori Handeland and Sherrilyn Kenyon’s werewolf books.

  41. Mirko di Wallenberg

    For me to buy a book, I look for several things a) who is the writer! A Devoti, Hauf, Peneiro, K. Hamilton… book always is a good read; b) then the topic of the story is always important like vampires, werewolves, highlanders, indians… c) is the book part of a series! I love serial books composed of 4 or 5 entries and d) the cover of the book! A great cover is always a plus; a bad cover is a real challenge to buy the book! I love eye-candy! LOL So in all in all most of the Nocturne books are on my readling list every month!

  42. Virginia Hendricks

    She’s not quite a werewolf author, but I love Rachel Vincent’s shapeshifters :)
