Dire Needs giveaway at Larissa’s Blog!

My writing partner and partner in crime, the amazing Larissa Ione is giving away three ARCs of Dire Needs today on her blog so go for a chance to win!  The contest will run for 24 hours, so everyone will have a chance to put their names in!

In other non-book news, I just saw Dr. Oz taking about alternative remedies for migraines – he mentioned a homeopathic med called Feverfew – anyone ever taken it with any success?  I’m thinking of trying it because, hey, why not?  Especially since this migraine has been here since, oh Tuesday.  I swear, it’s going to snow – I don’t care what the weather people say – this is a snowgraine for sure.

Okay, back to typing in the 25 longhand pages of Unbreakable (the new Section 8 romantic suspense I’m working on).  And I should have some news on the Reid/ Grier book soon as well!

Oh, and if you’re on Pinterest, come friend me!  It’s my newest addiction :0

 

Dire Needs ARC winner & a short story…

Winner of the Dire Needs ARC is Linda Scarchuk, as chosen by Zoo, because he can be as random as any random number generator!  Linda, just email me your addy and I’ll get the ARC out to you.  And it’s not the last contest for ARCs – promise!  And thanks so much for making release day for Dire Warning so much fun :)

And now, a short story for your reading pleasure:

You know when you tell your husband something like maybe you should buy a second can of the same exact paint with the built-in primer since that’s what you started painting the living room with and he says something like, the primer’s already worked with the first coat so I can just buy the regular pain without primer and you say something like, but I think it would be best if you continued with the same exact thing you started with and he comes home with the regular non-primer paint and says, the guy in the paint store said it would be fine and then you look at the paint job the next morning in the light and you can clearly see where the paint with primer was applied and where it wasn’t?

Yes, that. In my living room at the present time.

Moral of story – I win!!! And somehow lose, all at the same time.

Release Day for Dire Warning (& a contest)!!!

DIRE WARNING: A Novella of the Eternal Wolf Clan is available now!  It’s an eSpecial, a prequel to the Eternal Wolf Clan series that starts with Book 1, Dire Needs, next month!  <——-more exclamation points!

Ahem.  Anyway, this novella is about 25K (100 pages) and it centers on introducing you to the main Dire Wolf characters – it lets you into the world and is heavy on alpha male interaction :)  What could be more fun?!

Here’s the blurb:

A breathtaking new tale of the Dire Wolves, from the bestselling author of Dire Needs…

Immortal and invincible, Rifter is the head of the last surviving pack of Dire Wolves—a band of Alpha brothers charged with protecting the Weres. But now that witches have joined forces with nefarious weretrappers, it’s a perfect storm for double trouble. When the murder of a human points to a wolf, along with the threat of the packs being outted to the world, the Dires fear that something even more dangerous is out there hiding in the dark, something waiting for the right time to show itself.

You can read an excerpt here!  And you can go buy it on Amazon Kindle, B&N Nook and iBooks through the links here! <—–more exclamation points!!!

Seriously…

I did not need the heart attack on a plate from the squirrel that jumped through the lattice fencing out of my shed AT me this morning.  All I was trying to do was take out the garbage.  Instead, I think I taught my neighbors many new curse words.  I mean, it’s not like I live in the middle of the woods.  I don’t understand this at all.

But cursing always reminds me of the phrase, cursing like a sailor.  Which reminds me of SEALs.  Which reminds me…I’m thrilled to have been asked to be part of a SEAL anthology that comes out in November !  All the proceeds from this antho go straight to the Veterans Medical Research Foundation.  The complete website’s coming soon, but you can still visit it for some information – or to stare more at the cover.  There are so many wonderful authors involved – it’s going to be awesome!  And I believe there will be romance trading cards of the cover available at RWA!

Speaking of RWA,  Larissa is slowly UPS’ing me her entire life in preparation for the conference.  I might need another house just to put the various things I’m getting, like all her shoes.  Chapsticks.  Jar openers.  And other random packages.  She and Bryan will be hanging here over the weekend before they head in for the RWA conference.  I’ll be there starting Tuesday.  It’s going to be insane, but fun.

Finally, last but not least, today, I’m over at Marie Force’s Bookclub Blog (thanks to Kara, Ronlyn & Marie!) – they’re talking about LIE WITH ME, so pop over and say hi and you’ll be entered for a chance to win the giveaways!

 

Quick check-in

Sometimes, I so love Free Will Astrology – here’s the Aries scope for this week:

“You don’t want to be the best of the best,” said Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia. “You just want to be the only one who does what you do.” That’s always good advice, but it will be especially apt for you during the next few weeks. You’re entering a phase when competing with other people will get you nowhere fast. What will get you somewhere fast is nurturing your unique talents and proclivities. Do you know exactly what they are? If you’re even a little fuzzy, make it your quest to get very clear.”

Do you agree with Jerry?

There’s a giveaway of a signed copy each of Lie With Me and Promises In The Dark over with TwiMom (aka Jen) who has a great review up today.  She says, “Not only is this book full of wonderful romance and HOT smex, but the action is suspenseful and riveting. Ms. Tyler has created an engrossing world of black ops and special missions, where the good guys are big and sexy and the bad guys are evil. I love it!”

Let’s see what else – baby boy had two teeth break through within twenty-four hours of each other – with no drama.  I am working on a blog for Romantic Times website that I’m sure they think I’ve forgotten about, but I haven’t – really!  I’m working on it now!  And I’ve got a bazillion words left to write on Night Moves.  Really, a bazillion…at least.  It would help if Kell would talk to me, the elusive bastard…

Reviews & some giveaways for Lie With Me

Been busy this past week with my daughter’s most recent surgery – she did great but it was more exhausting than usual since we brought baby boy.  I wasn’t ready to leave him home, and since the surgery is out of state, it made for a long trip.  But I’m home and we’re all recovering and I cannot believe LIE WITH ME releases on Tuesday.

I’ve been remiss in pointing to some great reviews and giveaways, so here goes.

Casee, from Book Binge, has a great review up, an excerpt and I have a guest post with a giveaway that I believe you have until tomorrow night midnight to enter!  One of my favorite parts of her review: “I was thinking back on Steph’s heroes and I realized that each one was better than the last. Cam’s the best hero yet. And that’s that.”

Lea from Closetreader posted another great review – I’ll be at her blog doing an interview and a giveaway on November 9th (and yes, I’ll remind you!) My favorite parts of her review – the fact that she starts it with, Holy.  Hell. (always a good sign) – she also says, “If you enjoy a heart wrenching, thrilling, gritty and action packed military romantic suspense, you may like to give,“Lie With Me,” a try.” And the biggest compliment, she says it’s one of the best books she’s read this year.

Pearl has a wonderful review of Lie With Me up as well, and she’s got the first of several giveaways listed there.  Pearl says, “I adore Stephanie Tyler’s writing and her brand of romantic suspense. Her men are capable, unapologetic and ruthless, yet tender and passionate with their woman. The women are vulnerable yet strong and independent. The suspense in LIE WITH ME is thrilling, intricate and awesomely put together including some kick-ass fight sequences. I was jumping from one speculation to the other. The romance is poignant and intense, the love scenes fog up will your glasses and an added treat was the secondary romance and the way she set up the next book’s couple without giving away too much.”

Jen (TwiMom) reviewed Lie With Me, interviewed me and used an excerpt as her Sunday snippet – YAY!  Jen says, “And Cam… he is an alpha male that I can appreciate! He is a man with a sorted and complex past. He is flawed, but works through his own mess to find happiness….All in all, Lie WIth me is a thrilling, romantic journey.’

Okay, back to IN THE AIR TONIGHT revisions – due very, very soon…
