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!


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.

TOO HOT TO HOLD release day!

Nick is in the house!

Well, he’s been in some houses for a while – and I’ve heard from one person that he’s been vacationing in Disney!  But as of today, you should be able to buy your very own copy of TOO HOT TO HOLD everywhere.  54849096

And, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to see the brothers hanging out together, the way Shannon (Dorothy?  nah, too easy) Stacey did!

TOO HOT TO HOLD, for those readers new to my site, is book 2 in my Navy SEAL trilogy.

Book 1, HARD TO HOLD, is, of course, still available – you can check out the wonderful review Stacy (aka Trelaina) wrote up.  I particularly like this quote: “They [the heroes] are flawed, and dangerous, a bit crazy even.”

And book 3, HOLD ON TIGHT, releases in a few weeks on January 26th!!!

I’ve added lots of little tidbits about Nick’s story on my site, so please go look around.  You’ll also find a nice long excerpt of HOLD ON TIGHT that went up today as well!

T minus 1 day until TOO HOT TO HOLD!

It feels like its been forever between the release of HARD TO HOLD and TOO HOT TO HOLD, probably because of the holidays, but tomorrow, it’s officially release day.  And I have a feeling time will fly between TOO HOT and HOLD ON TIGHT.  I’m trying to get ready for the whirlwind in between finishing up PROMISES IN THE DARK.  Tomorrow, I’ll give a list of where you’ll find me blogging over the next week or so (it’s up on my events page as well!)

Today, I’ll share this with you – Lea at ClosetWriter wrote a wonderful review for TOO HOT.  I’ll just give you a nice highlight:

“The plot of this story is fast paced and thrilling and I think Ms. Tyler incorporates an interesting paradox into the hot, intense romance that develops between Nick and Kaylee..The climax of “Too Hot To Hold”, is IMHO emotional, suspenseful and edge of seat exciting.”

If I owe you a mailing from a contest you won last week, I promise it’ll go out this week.  I have a stack of printed emails to go through.  I also have a zillion emails to answer, although I’ve already peeked at a lot of the emails from readers, because they always brighten up my day.  I’ll answer them personally, but let me just say for now, thank you for all the wonderful things you say about my books.  You guys rock!

The case of the haunted snuggies

aka, when snuggies go horribly awry.

So Zoo’s co-workers gave him a snuggie for Christmas.  He looks like a cross between a monk and a cult leader.  And then today, the same people gave Gus a snuggie.  A large snuggie.

Large snuggies are not made for large weims.  Never mind the fact that Gus was totally humiliated and would never wear this.  Currently, he’s not speaking to us.GusSnuggie

But dude, look at the floating orbs!  They’re only in that picture…maybe it’s the ghost that lives on my second floor?  No really, he does.  And, at times, he smokes cigars.  Drives me nuts.

Anyway, TOO HOT TO HOLD (aka Nick’s book) is out in 6 days!  Well, five by the time I post this.   And on New Year’s Eve, I’ll be guest blogging over at RomCon, so come on over and say hello!  (I’ll update with a direct link when I have it.)

I have a book due on Jan 4th, btw.  Instead of writing, I’m watching Chip Coffey get pushed down some stairs on Paranormal State.  I blame the snuggies.
