Flukes Series: New Cover

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Well, my secret is out of the bag. FLUKES has a new cover! It's gorgeous and I absolutely love it.

Sarah from Okay Creations has outdone herself!

While I loved the original cover for Flukes, when it came time to think about covers for other books in the series, it just didn't work. And trust me, I think you're all going to love the cover for Riptide! Jacen's book is my next project and I can't wait to dive in to that story. (Did you see what I did there? Dive in?)

For those of you coming to see me in Woodstock, Ga., I will have the new cover available for signing!

For the Corn Family: Signed Book Auction

Wednesday, February 20, 2013


On the night of February 10, Matthew Corn left his house for a short motorcycle ride. That was the last time his wife and three children saw him alive. On the morning of February 11, Matt’s body was found a quarter mile from home by friends of the family. That day knocked the breath out of the community, broke the hearts of his friends, and wounded the souls of his family.


Matt was not just a name to me; he was my husbands close friend, my friend. My husband is the god father to Matt’s daughter—who is only a year old. Matt has played with my daughter, chased her around my living room, and admired her toys with her.  I knew him as someone that would drop everything to help someone and as a father that would do anything for his family. That dark Monday, the sky poured water over the grieving family, as if to weep along with them. It was such a painful, shocking thing to happen, and for most it seemed utterly unbelievable.


As I watched the family try to digest this horrible reality, I was struck by the need to do something, anything to help. The road ahead of them is going to be difficult and I wanted to help smooth it out. After talking with some of my friends, the idea of raising money was brought up. But how? After brainstorming, we decided to do an auction of signed books.
It is often in the darkest moments that people shine and I have been overwhelmed by the support and generosity of my friends that have offered to help with this auction.
 Over 30 authors have donated signed books and/or audio books. New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers, some of the most popular authors of today.

Happy Valentines Day! my present to you? A teaser from Suddenly Royal.

Thursday, February 14, 2013

I hope you are all having a lovely Valentines day! Whether you're celebrating with someone else, friends, or by your self in your underwear while eating ice cream (I'm looking at you, Hootie.) I hope it's great.

I wanted to give my readers a little somethin', somethin', and I thought you guys might like a quick peek at Naughty Alex. He may be a prince, but he's still a man. ;)

From Suddenly Royal
By Nichole Chase

“I promised I wouldn’t throw you to the wolves.” He leaned his head closer to mine and I took a deep breath, enjoying his sent. “As the crown prince, it’s my job to help you understand your duties. Eventually, I’ll be the one you’re reporting things to, so it only makes sense.”
            “I see.” I lowered my voice so no one could hear me. “Alex, I’m a wildlife biologist. I’m in way over my head.”
            “You’re a smart woman who will rise to the occasion.” His eyes dipped down to my lips and I fought the urge to lick them.
            “I’m sorry about yesterday.”
            “You were right.” He frowned. “I should know better. I’ll be good if you are.” His eyes glinted with the dare. “Just know if you feel like changing your mind, I’m right here.”
            “I’ll remember that.” I couldn’t help smiling at the challenge in his eyes. “Does this mean we can be friends for now? I have a feeling that I could use someone on my side.”
            “I don’t think it will work, but I’ll try for you.” His eyes ran over my body and I shook my head.
            “Friends don’t ogle friends.”
            “I said I’d try. I didn’t promise anything.” Sitting back in his seat, he chuckled. “I have a feeling our friendship will have a shelf life.”
            “A shelf life?”
            “You’ll either end up hating me or in my bed.”

Oh, that Alex. He's something else. ;) Can't wait to share Suddenly Royal with all of you!
