Mortal Defiance Teaser #1 + 1000 Books Sold!

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Okay, I promised that I would start sharing teaser from the second book of The Dark Betrayal Trilogy, and today is the day! I've picked out some good ones from scenes that I absolutely love. I hope you enjoy them too!

So to start us out right, here is a little peek into one of my favorite scenes:

“What are you doing?” Standing up, he looked at her in question.

“I have a full size bed. There’s no reason you should sleep on the floor.” Tugging him behind her, she walked to the bed.

“I can think of a few reasons."  His voice was rough with something that made Ree hot all over. "That’s the problem.”

So there you have it! Any idea who is in Ree's room? Am I a little bit mean for letting this be the first tease? Ha!

I also have some really good news. Mortal Obligation is currently on two top 100 lists on Amazon! This has been a very big month for me and my book baby. Not only have we crossed the 1000 books sold mark, I have actually managed to sell 1200 books on Amazon alone for the month of September. I am incredibly grateful for all of the love and support I have received. I am also thankful for all of my new readers. To show my appreciation, I will be throwing a giveaway next week full of some great new swag!!! Be sure to check back for a new teaser and a chance to win some fun items!

In other news, at the end of October I am getting together with a wonderful group of indie authors. We're going out to eat, a ghost tour, AND A BOOK SIGNING! I will be sure to get you the details once everything is finalized. I would love for you to come out and meet me!

Book 2 is definitely a work in progress. I've already sent a little of it to one of my beta readers and it looks like I am on track with what I want to create. I know that I haven't blogged in a while, and I am sorry for that. I get so wrapped up in what I am working on that I don't take the time to keep you up to date. I'm sorry for that.
I thought you should know that I have been privileged enough to guest post on a couple of sites. I also did a couple of interviews. If you would like to read them, you can click here (there is also a chance to win one of two ecopies of Mortal Obligation), here, and here.

I also have a giveaway running on Goodreads where you can win one of three signed copies of Mortal Obligation.

Flying Pink Fur- It's Here!

Friday, September 2, 2011

That's right! The Pink Snowbunnies in Hell anthology is now available! If you have no idea what I am talking about, here is the blurb:

A sleep-deprived author mixes up her metaphors.

A graphic designer has too much time on his hands.

Twenty writers, fueled by copious amounts of chocolate, dream up quirky, funny, and occasionally creepy stories.

And the Pink Snowbunnies in Hell Flash-Fiction Anthology was born.

These are very short stories, under a thousand words each. Some have actual bunnies. Some take rather offbeat trips through the underworld. And some just have a character that shares the sleep-deprived author's mixed metaphors.

All proceeds from this anthology are going to local animal shelters. Pink snowbunnies can take care of themselves, but thank you for helping us support those animals who do need a little assistance.

Stories included in the anthology:

Domestic Disturbance, by T.L. Haddix
Wedding Heaven, Ltd, by A.J. Braithwaite
When, by Robin Reed
Where's JoJo? A Bunny's Guide to Family Dysfunction, by Julie Christensen
Wingman, by Nathan Lowell
It Finally Happens..., by Heather Marie Adkins
Careful What You Wish For, by Barbra Annino
Of Demons and Bunnies, by Nichole Chase   (Woot!)
Pink Snowbunnies are the New Pink Ribbon, by Jimi Ripley
One Wrong Turn Deserves Another, by Asher MacDonald
Marissa's Tattoo, by Steve Silkin
Eulogy, by Suzanne Tyrpak
The Taste of Pink Snow, by Susan Helene Gottfried
Revenge of the Peeps, by Camille LaGuire
Love in a Time of Bunnies, by Coral Moore
The Bunni and the Bird, by Penny Cunningham
The Recession is Hell, by Randi Rogue
Pink Snowbunnies Acrostic, by Molly Black
Don't Mess with the Meadow, by Rex Jameson
A Gift for a Very Special Girl, by Debora Geary

In honor of being included in the anthology, I am giving away an ecopy to one lucky blog follower. All you have to do is:
a) Follow my blog- c'mon, you know you want to anyways.
b) Leave a comment telling me what is your favorite animal.
c) make sure to leave your email address and the format that you would prefer!
That's it! The contest closes Saturday night at midnight, EST.

If you don't want to wait to read the anthology, you can purchase a copy from, Amazon, Barnes and Noble , and Smashwords. (Only $0.99!) All of the profits go to helping animal charities.

Really, can you tell that face 'no'?

EDIT: This contest is now closed. The winners (yes, winners. I'm a softie and everyone that participated received a copy) have been notified via email.
