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.

Romance B(u)y the Book!

So today I’m guest blogging over with Michelle Buonofiglio and the fabulous Bellas over at Romance B(u)y the Book, so stop by and say hello!

Oh, and I kept meaning to share this here – Yvette, a bud from the Writeminded loop let me know via Facebook that last week, she and her husband were in Walmart and she saw two women fighting over the last copy of Too Hot To Hold!  She said they were arguing and pulling at the book and all I kept thinking was, dude, if they’d gotten into a fistfight and the cops got called, I could’ve gotten some awesome publicity.  I mean, the headlines alone – WOMEN ARRESTED FIGHTING OVER STEPHANIE TYLER’S BOOKS!

Oh well, maybe someday.  What?  I can dream can’t I?

Also, Sue Grimshaw’s got her January book recs video up and she mentions two names that you might be familiar with (HINT – they are Navy SEALs and their books are out now!):  Sue’s Must Reads | Borders Media.

Winners from the 3 day DIK contest!

I had a blast over at Desert Island Keepers blog – and I’m thrilled to get to announce the winners!

Right, winners, as in, I had SO much fun, I asked Lea to chose 2 winners instead of one.  So without further ado, the winners of a copy of HOLD ON TIGHT are…

MaryG and Jane!!!!

Congrats, ladies!  You can contact me or Lea with your snail mail and I’ll get your signed copies out to you ASAP.

And even more TOO HOT TO HOLD

So I’ve been invited over to the DIK Blog – that’s short for Desert Island Keepers, where I’m hanging out with Lea and the rest of the ladies…and some SEALs, of course!  I’ll be there for three days of interviews and blogs and yes, there’s a giveaway.  So head on over and comment or just say hi and have fun on the island.

Also, I was recently interview for The Big Thrill (the online publication of International Thriller Writers) by awesome author Mary Kennedy (who had a book release on Jan 5th, same day as Nick!). so check it out!

More on TOO HOT TO HOLD

Thanks for making yesterday such a great release day!  I was bouncing all over the place, from Writeminded to LIST to Twitter to Facebook, posting pictures from readers who’d spotted Nick’s book.IMG00093

I love the pictures.  If you couldn’t tell.

Anyway, today I’m going to direct you to two places, both with a giveaway.  I’m guesting over at Seductive Musings where I was interviewed by Carrie, and then Nick (and Jake and Chris)  are over at I Don’t Want To Wait, I I Want The Book Now being interviewed.

Things got a little crazy there, but Greta kept them in check.

Merry Christmas!

The cookies are baked.  And tested, multiple times.  The book?  Not done.  Not nearly done.  So I’m going to steal as much time as I can over the next few days to work – helps that Zoo does the cooking, you know?  I can set up and work until people arrive tonight,IMG_0309 as we have Christmas Eve here.  Christmas Day is also here, but it’s quiet and relaxing and really nice.

Gus agrees, especially because there’s snow for him.

So, Merry Christmas to all!  Thanks to everyone who stops by to say hi or who comes by and simply reads.  Thanks to all my blogger friends and writer friends and readers.  Thanks for all the fantastic emails I’ve been getting in regards to Hard to Hold – when I tell you your email makes my day, I’m not lying.  Reader mail is simply the best stuff there is, and I love knowing that someone’s getting enjoyment from something that I loved creating.
