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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
There are a multitude of things I could talk about but it’s just not going to happen. Instead, here is an awesome video made by Christina Gwin for the Darkness series:
Okay, there are a few more things starting with two ingredient bread.
The daughter and I tried this last night with chocolate ice cream and it actually turns out pretty okay and if you smear it with nutella it is fricking delicious!
We tried this one, too, and it is a lot of fun. We even made the expressions at the end of the video because we weren’t quite expecting what happened and had put a LOT in our mouths. Just remember: a little bit of this powder foes a long way. Also, citric acid is VERY sour.
We haven’t done this one but it is really neat and we wanted to share. We spend way too much time watching Australian cooking shows because they’re awesome!
Darkness Falls is finally, finally here! Since I am going to (try to be) offline for the next week, I published it a few days early. I even have the free days set up: April 21, and the weekend of April 25-28th.
The Winter in Spring giveaway is still going on until April 30. If you haven’t entered, now is your chance.
Have a great Easter! ❤
I’m super excited because my newest promotional product has arrived – Shiny Pink (Stress) Balls!!
Darkness Falls is currently in the hands of a few pre-Beta Beta readers and when I hear back from them it will be sent off to a few more Beta readers for a final look-see and then… and then… it will be published sometime in April.
Two years (and a few weeks, thanks to Winter’s Heart) after Darkness Comes was published, Darkness Falls is almost done. I have sent the first fully completed draft off to createspace and ordered a copy. Once I get that and go through it with my red pen, I will make (even more) corrections and then send it off to my awesome beta readers. And then… and then…. it will be going live sometime in April, preferably the earlier half but no later than mid-April. Oh, I also have to write the damn blurb. It’s once again from Malorie’s point of view (mostly) with a few trips into Jack’s and Feryn’s POV. (Yes, Jack’s back but there’s NO triangle.) It pretty much wraps up Malorie’s and Feryn’s story, so yay, and I think I’m happy with the story. There were a few surprises along the way but it mostly stayed true to my original vision, though there aren’t any vampires.
Okay, there’s one, but only for a little while.
Here is the cover for Darkness Falls (I will be redoing the Darkness Comes cover as well to match – same image but without the frame.)
I keep coming to my blog with the intention of updating but as soon as I click on new post and the little box comes up my mind immediately blanks and I can think of nothing to write about, no matter how many things I come up with through the day. Today is probably no different because my brain has turned to sludge and is oozing out my ears. It’s been crazy busy since the release of Winter’s Heart – mostly with darling daughter’s dance. Her first competition is coming up this weekend so there have been extra rehearsals, which is really cool since we get to see the other dances. The dancers at the studio are amazing.
Also, as stated previously, my brain is sludge. I keep opening up my Darkness Falls files, hoping desperately to wrap that story up because it is SOOOO close to the end, and nothing. Okay, maybe a sentence or two a day, which is practically nothing. Hopefully after this weekend the Muses will start talking to me once again and Darkness Falls will find its voice. Sometimes I am tempted to scrap the whole thing and begin again from a completely different direction but there are parts of Darkness Falls that are not so easily gotten rid of. So I sit and eat my Dove chocolate and stress over it. 🙂
Anyway, the giveaway for 3 hard copies of Winter’s Heart is still going on over at Goodreads:
Winter’s Heart the complete novel:
And because it’s too cool not to share, my daughter’s awesome shirt (found at freshbrewedtee.com):
Winter’s Heart is here and the correct version is up and I got the publication date that I wanted even though I didn’t know I wanted it until I hit the publish button: 2/10/14.I’ve been publishing for two years and Winter’s Heart is the tenth book I published. What is even cooler is that I published my first book (Darkness Comes) two years ago on 2/10/12 and I hadn’t known until yesterday when I was looking at my dashboard waiting for Winter’s Heart to go live.
You can have Winter for $2.99 or you can wait because he will be free Valentine’s Day weekend: 2/14/14-2/16/14. Because everyone needs a little Winter loving. Also, the aforementioned Jodi has directed me to a site that will make up a ton of t-shirts if enough people order (and pay) for them. It’s sort of like kickstarter but it’s a t-shirt marketing campaign and I’d like to gauge the interest before I start one because you need 50 people to have the t-shirts made. They’d be $10 plus s/h (which was like $4 Us and $7-10 international.) Let me know if you’re interested in the comments below or on facebook. The design I have right now is:
