Hi, everyone. I know it’s been awhile since I checked in here, but I have been hard at work (after the release of Witch’s Wood) on the next book in the Camden Girls series. I’ve a proof of the Camden Girls book on its way and hope to be releasing details of that to you soon! If you like historical romance, this one will be for you!
In the meantime, I’ve been working on stuff around my house–yes, in this heat. (In a word, ugh!) I know some of you have it worse than us. But either way, 97 degrees sucks if you have to be *gasp* outside!
I’ve also joined up with some other authors for a giveaway. You can get quite a few books of various subgenres (Historical romance like mine. Cat Cahill is also involved, Rachel Branton, Heidi Vanlandingham, and a few contemporary romance authors, too) This one is for the romance fans. One winner will receive a $30 gift card to the ebook retailer of their choice. If you’d like to check it out, click here, or the banner below.
My book, House of Dark Envy, is involved. (**When you click the link, scroll down to the bottom of the page. You’ll see House of Dark Envy there**). As the banner says, the giveaway ends August 31st so scoot on over, soon! 🙂 Good luck, and I hope you find some good reads there!
It’s that time of year again. The Smashwords “Read an Ebook week” sale is live. If you’d like some cheap reads, I’ve got one for you. My medieval fantasy romance Druid Warrior Prince is part of the sale.
Actually, the date on that banner is… a bit off. Their sale goes through the 13th. Mine goes through March 14th. (16th if you go directly through Itunes, B&N, Amazon and Kobo). So, there you go.
Gwenevieve Macken’s well-ordered world falls into chaos as encroaching interlopers scheme to possess both her and her land. Although she’s been trained to spot the signs of inhuman evil in men, the amassing armies take on guises she never expected.
When a foreign guardian presents himself as her only option for salvation, Gwenevieve must make a choice between her desires, and fulfilling the mythic fate to which she was born. A forced marriage to a Tuatha dé Danann warrior isn’t part of her plan. Nor was true love.
You can get a copy at Smashwords right now!! Use the code XG44D at checkout for 67% off or find it for the same discount at Amazon and other stores. Sale ends soon.
We had a storm here, the other day, so I’ve since spent the time catching up.
I caught this little guy changing “clothes” before the storm.
Guess he needed a new raincoat before the storm. 🌧 Oh, that teasing Eta! The power flickered a bit but we never lost it and we weren’t affected by the tornado warnings. I even managed to get a newsletter out, put my Frigga’s Lost Army on sale for Veterans day, and get my word count in for the day, between being glued to the weather reports.🌧☔
For the aforementioned sale of Frigga, if you get it from Smashwords, use the code YF69P at checkout for 67% off (Offer good through Nov. 14, 2020 ). If you get it from Amazon, you don’t need a code.
How are your projects going? For me, my total Nano word count thus far is… not quite 25k. I should pass that today, though. I hope y’all are doing well.
Happy Thanksgiving, my friends. I hope you all have (or had) a lovely one. While we’re all eating and out shopping for Black Friday, I thought I would share with you an essay I wrote last year (slightly updated!) about unusual paranormal characters in Romance.
But before I do, I wanted to let you know that the ebook of Keeper of the Grove is on sale for $.99, today and tomorrow–for Black Friday. You can find it at Amazon .
Modern paranormal romance caters to women who want to dream a little more than the average reader. They crave the weird and just looking at the romance pages in Amazon or at the shelves in a bookstore, you’ll see publishers are catering to that wish list.
These days the main star of the genre, though, seems to have gelled down to two factions: Vampires and werewolves. As a reader of the genre, and as a lover of mythology, I’ve often wondered why that is. After all, the world’s mythologies offer so many different types of monsters (yes, I said the M word ;)) to choose from.
Did you have a magical Valentine’s day? We did. It’s downtime and the short slide down to spring (and spring break) right? 🙂
I’ve been writing away and almost finished with (what I hope will be) my next release. So stay tuned for that. More magic is on the way. In the meantime, Changeling’s Crownis on sale for $.99 extended through the 19th. If you haven’t gotten it before I hope you’ll check it out.
When Ianthe began her career as a faery godmother, she stumbled so badly that Snow White will probably never speak to her again. After a long suspension, she’s finally been given a chance to redeem herself…but everything on this latest assignment is going wrong.
If you got a different kind of ereader from Santa for Christmas, the story is also free at Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/320047 (I expect Barnes and Noble and Amazon UK will catch up eventually but for now the epub is available at Smashwords)
Though their fame became legend, a rumor cropped up about the Fulmer family: Something terrifying stalked Caitlin and her beloved Trevor. Something the bits and pieces she left claimed she had to make sense of. When the curator of their collection finds Caitlin’s long forgotten diary, she wonders will it tell the whole tale? Will it tell why Caitlin seemed so determined to tell the difference between reality and nightmare? Why she thought herself a witch?
What will the holidays hold for Caitlin? Perhaps the answer lies between the lines of her story, one of lessons, struggles, and hopes for each new year.
Includes samples of The Artist’s Inheritance, Antique Magic Book One, and the second volume, Drawing Down the Shades (which are also both still on sale). **This is a side (or supplemental, if you will) story in the Antique Magic Series. And remember, book 3 is forthcoming!
Enjoy, and as always, reviews are welcome.
