It’s Alive! Kissed by Ice (Sunwalker 5) is out NOW!

Kissed by Ice_200x300Apparently I’m extra organized this month, because Kissed by Ice is already live on Amazon in the USKobo, Amazon UK, and Amazon DE

KISSED BY ICE

“Hurry, Morgan. If you don’t, we’re all dead.” 

With an old friend in mortal danger and the Dragon King demanding her presence, vampire hunter Morgan Bailey is stuck between a rock and a volcano. Jack’s gone AWOL, her nemesis is running amok with a magical book, and soul vampires are snacking on steampunk enthusiasts. Not to mention Morgan still has a price on her head. 

As if all that isn’t enough, a new power is growing inside Morgan. One so out of control it might be the one thing that tips her into madness. 

Be sure and stop by the release party I’m co-hosting with Tara West this coming Wednesday. There will be lots of fun games and prizes!

FAQ: Of Audible and German Translations

I get a lot (and I do mean a LOT) of questions from fans about versions of books other than those currently available. The most common question I get (other than “When is the next book out?”) is when Kissed by Moonlight or Kissed by Ice will be available as audio books. The second most common question is when the rest of the Sunwalker Saga will be translated into German.

Let me answer question number two first. It’s the easiest.

german-class-langu_2497150bAt this time, Montlake Romance has no plans to translate the rest of the series. This makes me sad as I know I have a lot a fantastic German fans and right now their only option is to read the rest of the series in English. Unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do about this. However, I have been assured that once the German translation of Kissed by Darkness has been out for one year, the team will have another look at sales, etc. and consider whether or not to translate more books.  So, fingers crossed!

Now to the first question: When will the second half of the Sunwalker Saga be available as audio books?vintage_mic

Simple answer: I have no idea.

More complicated answer: I’m working on it.

Since I have to pay out of my own pocket (and audio books are very expensive to produce), it will, at the minimum, be several months if not a year or more. And that’s just for Kissed by Moonlight. If it happens at all.  I know some of my lovely readers really prefer audio books, which is why I’m trying to make this happen for you. So, please, please, please be patient. I’m doing my best.

I want to say a big huge THANK YOU to all my readers. You all are absolutely the best! I couldn’t do this without you!

I hope I’ve been able to answer your questions for now. I promise I’ll keep you posted regarding any developments.

Count Down to Las Vegas!

Less than a week until the Romance Novel Convention in Las Vegas!

With Shawn Cunningham, Mr. Casanova 2013.

Last year was crazy fun, and this year promises to be even better! If you’re attending the entire convention, I’ll be on two different panels this year. On Wednesday afternoon (July 9th), I’ll be talking about my Soulshifter Trilogy in The Face of New Adult panel along with three other fantastic authors. Then on Friday afternoon (July 11th), I’ll be talking all things Alpha Male along with author LM Pruitt. Should be an interesting panel! RNC Book Fair 2013

For those of you not attending the rest of the convention, you can still come along to the Book Fair on Saturday, the 12th of July. The Book Fair is open to the public and is only $5 to get in! Meet your favorite authors, pick up some epic swag, buy some books, and get them signed then and there. You can pick up your tickets here.

With my friend and writing buddy, Tara West.RNC is a great place to learn new things, meet GREAT people, form life long friendships, and just general have a FANTASTIC time. Hope to see you all there!

Firefly Meets CSI…Murder, Mayhem, and Alien Worlds, Oh, My!

Omicron ZX_200x300Something like two years ago I announced I was working on a new series. One that takes place in space. One that involves murder, mystery, adventure, and romance. Well, Omicron ZX is FINALLY coming your way!

In preparation for the first book in the series, A Rage of Angels, (to be released this fall) I’ve just released a prequel novelette: Omicron Zed-X. This little prequel introduces the main characters of the series and the world in which they live: space ships, alien worlds, nano implants, cryogenic stasis, and, of course, MURDER! Let’s not forget a little romance, too (‘Cause that’s the way I roll).

About the book:

Starship captain Zala Lei's bid to bring a dangerous criminal to justice leads her to Omicron 5 and Xander Lodai, a man even more deadly than the one she's tailing. She can only hope that Xander can help her stop evil in its tracks before she becomes the next victim. 

(This prequel novelette to the upcoming Omicron ZX series was originally published as a short story in the Eclective's Holiday Collection. It has been extensively rewritten an expanded.)

Get it now on Amazon!

What’s Up, Buttercup? Goings on in my world…

It’s been awhile since I blogged, so I thought I’d let you in on various happenings in my world.

1. Probably most importantly to you Morgan fans, I’m working right now on the second round of rewrites for Kissed by Ice - the fifth book in the Sunwalker Saga. It’s going to be a fun one and you’re going to learn some interesting tidbits about some of your favorite characters, so hold onto your hats! As of now, the release date is July 21st. (Want to get an email when it goes live on Amazon and other venues? Sign up for my mailing list HERE.) And because you’re awesome, here’s the cover: Kissed by Ice_200x300 Continue reading
