Good News Times Two

I've got great news! Two things I want to share with you, actually.
 
First, because of the excitement of News #2 (below), I decided a fancy-smancy new website was in order. So I snagged the domain and got myself a pretty sweet looking site. I'm going to leave this blog active, but I'll move the bulk of my interactions over there, so please do come over for a visit!
 
 
Second, I've got a new book out!
 
I waited a few days after the official release date (3/17) because I wanted to tweak the book's blurb on Amazon and do some general housekeeping, but I couldn't hold it in any longer!

The second book featuring Claire (my newly dead, newly single, Vampire soccer-Mom protagonist) is alive! And her dark humor is still just as sharp as her fangs... I promise.




 Here's the official blurb:


After the disastrous trip that ended her mortal life, Claire has to get her freakish talents and blood-lust (and let's be honest, regular ol' lust too) under control so that she can be a good mom and keep her fangs hidden. Thanks to her Vampire Disability Fund, life is good.

So what if two brothers (one hot, one decidedly jerkish) have moved into her neck of the woods? And so what if she hasn't heard a peep out of her maker, Bette, or the other members of The Triad?

No news is good news, right? Oh, how wrong she is...

Bite Me is the second release in the wicked Blood Chord Series. It contains a fair amount of music, magic, fangs and freaks, along with adult situations-- you've been warned!

7 Reasons Why You'll Love My Novel Kill Me

Here are 7 reasons why you might just  :P love my novel, Kill Me:

  • Rock and roll, a strip club and some vamps with questionable morals sounds like your idea of a good time.
  • What's better than a woman trying to chose between two men? A woman chosing between a man and another woman.
  • You like your fang stories with a healthy dose of darkness, grit or angst. i.e. No sparkly vamps for you!
  • You are an overworked Mom who has wished for super powers on more than one occasion.
  • You know that fanged Moms bite best!
  • Your ipod contains one or more of the following: Joan Jett, The Dollyrots, Korn, Rhianna, Vivaldi, Melissa Etheridge, Pink or 50-cents. 
  • You know the answer to this question: Where is the worst place to develop Empath abilities? (A strip club, in case you didn't know).

So, what are you waiting for? Check it out!

New Quickie Release - Saved by the Alpha

Like many things in life, I like to liven things up. Junk food one day, salads the next. Lengthy literary tomes, then down-and-dirty novellas. Variety being the spice of life, and all that. 

So in between the spurts of working on the second Blood Chord book (Bite Me, available now for preorder), I took a little break to pen one of the Quickies. And it's available on Amazon for pre-order through the release on Monday, Feb 9th.

The cover alone makes me all tingly. Imagine what the story will do :-)



Amazon Link

Blurb:

When Roxy Thompson decides to explore the wilderness on horseback, she only intends to be gone a few hours and figures it will be safe enough-- as long as she stays on the trails close to the resort. What she doesn't count on is a mountain lion spooking her horse and then turning its sights on her. A wolf saves her in the nick of time, but it’s the handsome recluse Caleb that nurses her back to health, and then some. 

Saved by the Alpha is an erotic paranormal short of approx. 7,500 words and is intended for mature audiences only.

Pre-order Bite Me (Blood Chord #2) Now!

Book Two in the Blood Chord series is now available for pre-order via Amazon!



Here’s the blurb:
***Limited time, pre-release special price of $2.99! After the release day it will go to the full price of $4.99***
After the disastrous business trip that ended her mortal life, all Claire wants to do is get her freakish talents and blood-lust (and let’s be honest, regular ol’ lust too) under control, so that she can be a good mom, hide her fangs and maybe try to coax her stripper-turned-nanny into wearing some actual clothes that won’t make the local biddies fire up the gossip chain.
Thanks to her Vampire Disability Fund, Claire just might get the boring life of her dreams after all. So what if two brothers (one hot, one decidedly jerkish) have moved into the only other house in her remote neck of the woods? And so what if she hasn’t heard a peep out of her maker Bette or the other two members of The Triad? No news is good news, right?
Oh, how wrong she is…
Bite Me (approx. 65,000 words) is the second release in the wicked Blood Chord Series. It contains a fair amount of music, magic, fangs and freaks, along with adult situations– you’ve been warned!

Good Things Happen When You're Not Paying Attention

It should come as no surprise that, as an author, I frequently check on my books to see how sales are going. Most of the time, I might get a little surprise, but nothing to get overly worked up about. This past weekend I was out of town and so tied up that I didn't even bother to check around from my phone, so image my surprise when I discovered that downloads on Crow: The Prequel went haywire on Saturday.

Where did this manna come from (and how to repeat it!)?

Google did not help illuminate why this one book received a sudden spike in sales. Not one bit. Though I did find a new (favorable) review online for the same book.

Then, this morning I received an email from FreeBooksy letting me know that they featured my book over the weekend, which is most likely the cause of my generous bump in book downloads over on Amazon.


On a side note, they also said I should feel special, 'cause they only handpick a select few books to be showcased. See, I even got a nifty little button for it!

I'm a featured author at Freebooksy
