Making a date–#booksnippet–September 15

And now for something a little different…maybe. Here’s my sneak peek for Keeper of the Grove (Stewards War, book one) for this Sunday:

Stacy’s gaze went to Aaron’s, and butterflies dashed around in her stomach. A vision flashed before her of how his eyes might look glazed over in passion. “Maybe we should go.” She cleared her throat, stood and moved to the filing cabinet, changed her mind and went to the desk again.
The fabled diary! She was beside herself with excitement. She’d have the diary. What a month this
was turning out to be. “When can we meet him?”
Aaron came forward and ran a finger over the calendar’s slots. “How about tomorrow morning?”
“Yes.” She nodded emphatically. “Perfect. Nineish?”
“Tomorrow it is.” He nodded and turned toward the door.
The thrill of this discovery overwhelmed her. An urge to kiss him in thanks struck her hard in the chest. “Aaron?”
He met her gaze, waiting.
Her brain screamed, halt! She wanted to touch him at least. Her fingers twitched. She stepped back.
She just couldn’t. “I’ll see you at nine.”
He turned away with a knowing glint in his eyes.
She was such a fool.

Synopsis:

Stacy Macken has one goal in mind: saving her renowned history center from greedy creditors. Losing it would be a catastrophe—one she doesn’t know how she’ll avoid.

Until Aaron Fielding arrives. To all human eyes, he is just like any man, but he reminds Stacy of one of the fae. He certainly enchants her like a fae lover would. But Stacy suspects there is more to this sexy fellow, with his tales of the Tuatha dé Danann, and magical warriors from Celtic legend who protect humanity from a wicked enemy seeking their destruction. Does his appearance mean the end of the world imminent?

Can she, a studious woman more intent on history books with no training in or love of war, possibly have anything to offer when a long-prophesied druidic battle explodes around her?

Writing during a global crisis and a sale

Sunday. It’s been a minute or two since I posted here. I’ve been busy!! In fact, I’ve done a lot of stuff in the background, with regards to my site and my novels and stories that are currently available, and am in the beginning stages of writing a new book, having come off the back of releasing one and writing another.

Those of you who are my long time readers* are thinking “Juli, that sounds typical for you”, isn’t it? Even a pandemic doesn’t seem able to stop the writing, for me. I’m not bragging. I’m lucky in that, I realize. I’ve not had a bad case of writer’s block in decades. And at one point, I suffered a bout that lasted several years.

How do I avoid it now and write so many things at once? I don’t know. I think it stems from when I was a college student. Back then, I got used to studying for several classes at once and that…helps(?). I can partition my thoughts to allow the story ideas to flow while I’m cooking dinner or insert-other-boring-life-chore-here. That’s the best explanation I have for it. From there, the habit carried into writing (to the point of where I seem unable to write only one series at a time. :)) Which is frustrating, sometimes, I’ll admit.

More than that, I think the ability to write through anything just has something to do with my mindset towards it. While I participate in Nanowrimo, I don’t–and maintain, you shouldn’t–wait for an arbitrary date to begin your stories. I write whenever I can, whether it be a note or a paragraph from my character’s point of view. That’s how you get it done when time seems against you. *nods* Or at least it’s how it works for me. Heck, the writing even can help me from dwelling–er, focusing too much on that crisis, and for that, I’m very grateful. May you find your own rhythm to writing during a crisis.

(**Speaking of my writing, if you’re not currently one of my readers and would like to check out something I’ve published for free, I  have  some titles still in the Kindle Lending Library, if have Prime and you’d like to read them. There are also three free things and some other inexpensive books out –which you might say is a bargain, compared to some book prices out there–let’s face it, I’m not one of those charging $9.99 for my ebooks! *looks to the silly ones in NY* In fact, if you are an historical fan, there is a giveaway/sale that’s in progress for the next few days, if you wish. Check it out here:

 

My historical romance novel House of Dark Envy is involved in the sale.

So that’s me, for this little bit. I need to (say it with me) get back to writing! 🙂 Have a good week, all and good luck with your own writing!

Something new and oh, yes, I hate….

THIS IS AN OLD POST (circa 2017).  Somehow, the blog post reposted–sorry about that. The book is still available for free, but it’s not new any longer. 😉

coverideatestblondegirlsnowNO SUCH THING AS DASHER

Synopsis:

For Avery, her holiday duties as a forest ranger oftentimes involve tracking revelers who have lost their way in her wilderness domain. After a camper clashes with a reindeer, however, Avery is shocked to discover the creature is defended not by Santa, but by the formidable, yet gentle, shapeshifting Lord of the Forest.

An enchanting fairy tale to celebrate the magic of the season!

Free at Smashwords, Amazon, (US, Canada, Brazil, Australia–not all the venues have changed the price yet , and…. that’s about it. Itunes is dragging, as is Barnes and Noble. (do you get the feeling this aggravates me? Particularly that it’s not gone free in the UK, or even live at Itunes  which have been picking at their noses for nine days with this, now. [Black Friday, my foot!]). They’re trying, I suppose, in this day and age of  one-button, one-click everything? I don’t get it.)

Meanwhile, it’s hit #6 in the romance lists. 🙂

Freebie lists, but still.

Anyway, hopefully, they’ll all come online soon. In the meantime, enjoy, and remember, reviews are welcome!

Now Leaving Kindle Unlimited Lending Library

Hey everyone, I hope you’re well this week. I am. I did lots of yardwork this weekend, so I’m a little achy–but writing along as usual. I’ve almost met my goal for Campwrimo. At this point, I doubt I will meet it, but it’s going to be close! I may finish that book before Thanksgiving. I hope. (I’m hoping long before!)

For those of you with Amazon Prime accounts, Nooks or Ipads, or Kobo ereaders, I wanted to let you know, I’ve decided to take two titles out of KU. That will remove them from the Kindle Lending Library. What titles?

My Gothic romance/fantasy Reign of Tarot boxed set.

Reign of Tarot boxed set by Juli D. Revezzo, Gothic Romance, Raven Queen Publications, French revolution, fiction, paranormal romance, Kindle

And I’ve decided, likewise, to remove my steampunk/Victorian Romance Watchmaker’s Heart

.Watchmaker's Heart by Juli D. Revezzo, Steampunk romance

This is a big step for WMH. It’s always been in KU, but after  41/2 years, it’s time. So I wanted to give you a heads up, if you wanted to read it for free with KU, now’s your last chance.

Reign of Tarot, if you missed it last week, you can find the synopsis on this post. They drop out of the program by August 7th, so read now, if you wish! But for those with Nooks, Kobos, and Ipads, look for it in those stores soon.
