Guest Blogging & Chat

Today and tomorrow, you can find Chris and Lore interviewing one another over with Greta and Lillie at I Don’t Want To Wait. Stop on over, join the fun and leave a comment to be eligible for the giveaway!  Because, in case you didn’t know, HOLD ON TIGHT and ECSTASY UNVEILED release on the same day – which is next Tuesday.

Tomorrow night (Friday,Jan 22nd – 8PM EST) Larissa and I will also be chatting at LIST - about Nick and Chris and Lore and SEALs and Demons and everything in between.  Come on by (registration for the forum’s quick and painless) and have fun at the chat!

I’ve been holed up in the house (well, that’s nothing new) with a sick husband.  That’s like, the most un-fun thing ever, because sick man = someone send help please.  But thanks to Z-packs, he’s much better and should be going to work tomorrow so that way I can get back to work.

I’m so turned around anyway, thanks to the holiday on Monday.  So I’m like a day behind in my mind and my watch is giving tomorrow’s date, so I’m not sure if I’m coming or going.  Seems like a good time to huddle in and continue reading StarDoc.  I’ve never read this series and Lynn pulled me in immediately.  Loving it.

New review for HARD TO HOLD

The wonderful Lea from Closetwriter has written a great review for HARD TO HOLD!

Here are a few snippets from her review:

What I loved about this story is not only the characters, which are well developed, and complex, but also the progression of the relationship between Izzie and Jake. Their emotional connection grows over the course of the story and is believable.

The climax to Isabelle and Jake’s story is heart in the mouth riveting. Ms. Tyler infused a number of plot twists and turns, and surprises into the narrative.

The best way I can describe “Hard To Hold”, is a total RUSH. I read this book over the span of 2 days and could barely put it down. I can say without hesitation that “Hard To Hold”, will be one of my favorite reads of this year. If you enjoy romantic military suspense, you may like to give it a try.

Speaking of Jake, (OMG – 18 more days until release day!!!) I’m going to have some interviews and blog posts coming up in the next few weeks – I’ll note them here and on my events page.  And on L.I.S.T. (the Larissa ione / Stephanie Tyler fan forum) there will be a chat for Jake and Hard to Hold on Friday, December 11th at 8PM EST.

And now, I need to go get on track with Zane – I’ve lost the past three days because the kid had an infected suture in her back.  Her body doesn’t really like the whole, dissolvable stitch thing.  For a while there I thought we’d end up in the ER, but the antibiotics seem to be working.  Prayers are always appreciated. :)

L.I.S.T.

What is LIST?  Well, it stands for Larissa Ione and Stephanie Tyler  (and of course, Sydney Croft is there as well) and it’s the name of the new fan forum that will officially launch today, June 9th.  It’s the brainchild of a wonderful person who approached us and asked where our forum was and would we mind if she started one for us.  Of course, we were honored and so Lo began her work.

June 9th is actually a perfect day to officially launch LIST (well, perfect for me – Larissa is currently driving from Virginia to Wisconsin and will be back online within a week or two) – perfect, because today is the day that my galleys for Hard To Hold (aka Jake’s book) are due.  Galleys are the final step before a book is published.  So that’s pretty much kismet for me, even though Lo, the fabulous creator / admin of LIST, didn’t know anything about that.  But I’m a huge believer in signs, so to me, this works perfectly.

LIST is a forum, so you’ll have to register, but there’s so much to do there – people to meet, greet and chat with about everything from the latest movies to how to create a banner.  There are also forums about the books and a place to ask Larissa and me questions (we to try to pop on as often as we can.)  But really, it’s just a great place for readers to hang out and have fun!

So come on over and check it out, because they’ve done such a fabulous job putting everything together!!!
