The week of Christmas (and through the rest of the year)

Stone Lover:

Winter’s Heart:

After Blight:

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year! For the rest of 2014, I have put three of my books on sale for 99 cents over at Amazon: Winter’s Heart, Stone Lover, and After Blight. In addition, Blight and After Blight have received new covers! As of this morning, they don’t show up on the Amazon page unless you click on the book and then they appear. Hopefully the little thumb nail will have the new covers sooner rather than later. Either way, here they are:

Quick timeline of books

In case you were curious where all of the books fit in my paranormal world, here is a handy picture guide. Hopefully it makes sense but if it doesn’t and you have any questions, post a comment here, on facebook, or email me at Obviously it doesn’t include my contemporary romances but if it did, I’d say they are current with the Stone Lover/Stone Romance/Siren Song stories.

Whew! Thank goodness that is done. Mostly.

I shipped off the last batch of prizes today and I am very happy that it went so smoothly. I only have two winners that never got back to me with their addresses, which is unfortunate. I kind of want to give them more time in the off chance they find the emails I sent buried in their in box or spam box – or they see the post on facebook and are able to get me their information. I have been checking my spam folder in case yahoo is trying to sabotage the system. πŸ™‚ If I don’t hear anything by Sunday evening I will pick two new winners for the final two prizes.Β  Rafflecopter has a 48 hour time limit but that doesn’t seem long enough – so a week it is. I already have one winner who has received her prize, which is very cool. πŸ™‚

Getting the prizes packed up has been interesting. If you get my facebook posts you will know that I went out on Tuesday after mailing off the first batch of prizes to pick up some boxes for mailing the mugs. I don’t know why I waited until the last minute but I did and when I went to the store they only had one box. So after I mailed off the second batch on Wednesday (I recycled boxes for the steins because the mug boxes were just the teeniest bit too small and the next size up was WAY too big) I went to another store where there were many, mane mug boxes. They even had some left after I got through with them! Today, however, I blame on forgetfulness. I had all of my boxes in my Ikea bag (they mostly fit) and the last two international envelopes and the daughter all in the car. We get to the post office and I get out, grab the bag and realize I needed to grab my purse from the front seat. Lo and behold it wasn’t in the front seat because I forgot it at home. So I packed the car back up, drove back to the house, ran inside and grabbed the purse and headed back up to the post office. Afterwards, I took my daughter to Dairy Queen, which was necessary by that point. πŸ™‚

Now that the Fall in Love with a Gargoyle Giveaway (the Gargoyle Giveaway) has ended it is time to get back to writing – and editing. I received the proof of After Blight a few days ago and now that the prizes are packed up and sent off I can concentrate on that and get After Blight finished so I can focus on other stories (ahem: the sequel to Darkness Comes, and others.)

Thank you all for making the giveaway such a massive success!! Muah!! XX

Before I continue on with the next project

If you have Stone Lover and Stone Romance there is an update available for both. There have been no significant changes – just a few tweaks to a few flurbles.) πŸ™‚ I don’t think Amazon will send out a mass e-mail but you’ll be able to find the updates in your manage my kindle section (it’s there – I saw it and used it this morning, as well as updates for 70 other books….) If you got the books from smashwords the updated versions are the newest entries. If they have the same date look at the time. Funny story: while I was uploading the new versions of Stone Lover and Stone Romance I tried doing it at the same time. Bad idea. When I checked the files to see if they formatted properly I discovered that Stone Romance was actually Stone Lover so I had to re-upload Stone Romance all by itself.Β  πŸ™‚
