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 are an overworked Mom who has wished for super powers on more than one occasion.
  • You know that fanged Moms bite best!

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

Recent Distractions from Writing

I've been asked before, "What do you do when you're not writing?"

The long answer involves a laundry-list of chores required to maintain a homestead filled with two kids, three cats, a rambunctious chocolate Lab, one elderly horse and two hens and a rooster. Oh, and the hubby, don't want to forget him. Thinking about all that makes me tired... so I typically result to Plan B: Reading.

Here's what's been distracting me from real-world problems lately!

Claimed by the AlphasClaimed by the Alphas by Viola Rivard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Love this compelling, spicy series. What strikes me as most interesting about it (other than the scorching heat level and the menage, of course) is that the author has done an excellent job building a world where the plot seems possible and naturally evolving. There are details, sparsely planted throughout this and the other books in the series, that lend to the overall refreshing story line.

I don't want to give too much away, and I've got four more books in the series to review... but the fact that I read them all back to back and had to download one as soon as I was done with the last one should speak volumes!


Claimed by the Alphas: Part TwoClaimed by the Alphas: Part Two by Viola Rivard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Spicy, steamy, complex and satisfying. This second book in the Claimed by the Alphas series, is all that and more. The tension and heat keeps ratcheting skyward, the characters are evolving and revealing their personalities, and I found myself tearing through this book just to get to the next one.



Claimed by the Alphas: Part ThreeClaimed by the Alphas: Part Three by Viola Rivard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Love, love, love this series! Onward to the next book!




Claimed by the Alphas: Part FourClaimed by the Alphas: Part Four by Viola Rivard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Goodness, this series is taking me on a ride. I adore the characters and the care that the author has taken in developing such a fabulous world for this series. The writing itself ain't too shabby either :-)

I'm not sure what to expect with the next book, and that's half the fun of it. I devoured the first four books as I can't wait for the next one to come out. It better be soon... I need my Alphas fix!

And wouldn't you know it, I just found the newest release- Part Five-- is available and now sitting patiently on my Kindle Fire, ready and waiting for the weekend!
