I'm sorry I haven't been on the blog. Trust me when I say things have been crazy.
Our youngest child is on the mend from an infection that sent her to the hospital, I'm dealing with school issues for our special needs son, and I've been doing my best to write, edit, and revise when I have time.
It's been busy, busy, and BUSY. Meaning I haven't been able to promote upcoming releases and the like.
Which brings me to the topic of this entry.
On Friday Omega Mine releases at Ellora's Cave. I'm extremely excited and hella nervous. I completed the book last year, right before I ventured to Lori Foster's Reader and Author Get Together. It was unlike anything I'd ever written. For starters, the smex is smoking. Diskant (the hero) is unapologetic and takes what he wants. The instant I heard him in my head, I knew I was going on a wild ride. From start to finish, I followed the characters and let them guide me through their story. The result is a book that features shifters, vampires, hunters, and all sorts of dark, unexpected things. I hope that you enjoy it.
As you may recall the second book in the Desires of the Otherworld series, Darkest Hunger, released last Tuesday at Loose Id. This was a story I really enjoyed writing. The characters are ones I love to revisit, and it's very easy to slip back into their heads. I can't wait to return and start writing Elizabeth and Alucard's book. After that, I'll dive into the story most of you want to read -- Byron and Elsa's. There are several installments planned, if only I can find the time to write them.
So, why am I bothering you with all of this information? Of course it's to let you know where the books will be available, but it's also because I've decided to have one last contest before I fall off the radar. Soon I have to get to work, meaning I won't be around. Curious about the prize? Check out the image below...
Up for grabs is an e-book copy of Eternity and a Day, the first book in the Desires of the Otherworld series (click image to read the blurb and an excerpt). If you'd like to put your name in the hat, leave a comment with a valid email address and I'll enter you. I'm going to run the giveaway until Friday, when Omega Mine releases. It's my way of saying thanks for all your support and generosity. The winner will be able to choose the e-book format of their choice.
Have a wonderful week! I'll be back to announce the winner Friday morning. Just in time for the weekend!
**PS. Books at Loose Id and Ellora's Cave do not go to third party distributors right away. I apologize in advance. If you'd like to purchase a copy of any of my works from these publishers the only way to do so is to purchase directly from the publisher website. If you'd prefer to wait, it will be two or three months before the books appear on Amazon and other resellers.**
