Not. OMG – this house is like a magnet for illness lately. My poor kid got so sick (probably food poisoning) the other night, so, as I said in the comments, I couldn’t pick the contest winners. So I had my husband pick 2 numbers and the corresponding winners are Viki S. and Debbie Talbot! Guys, email me with your addresses and I’ll get Dire Needs out to you ASAP!
I have more ARCs to give away (those are advances reading copies, fyi, which means they’re uncorrected galleys but pretty close to what the real version will be barring some wrong words / etc.) I’m also going to gift some copies of Dire Warning too as soon as the preorder links go up 🙂
Anyway, you guys had awesome lists of books to be read – most of us have very similar tastes in reading 🙂
I was interviewed about SEAL of My Dreams (and other things) over at the USA Today Blog – you can read the whole thing here. In the month of November (release month) the book earned about $46K for the Veterans Medical Research Foundation, so all the contributing authors are thrilled!!! Thanks for all your support – you all went out and bought and talked the antho up – it’s for such a good cause!
So, in honor of that, I’m going to give away two signed ARCs of DIRE NEEDS! The contest ends at 10PM EST, and all you have to do to be entered is to tell me what upcoming books you’re most looking forward to in the comments below. I always end up with a huge list of books to buy when I ask this question.
Okay, a few updates before I head back to the deadline cave where I resided for the better half of the last year 🙂 It’s likely not to change, which is a very, very good thing.
Obviously, my website has been revamped – it’s it gorgeous?! Waxcreative, as always, exceeded my expectations! So now it reflected the wolf as well as the romantic suspenses and I think it ties in so well.
Wax also redid the Sydney Croft page as well!
For those who’ve been asking about poor Reid and Grier from Night Moves, yes, I totally plan to do something for them before the new suspense series begins in 2013 – I promise to keep you posted!
Other than that, I’m diving into the first of the new romantic suspense series – the book is currently titled Unbreakable and the series is called Section 8. I just handed in book 2 in the Eternal Wolf Clan series and I’m getting ready for a blog tour for the upcoming releases. And, I’m also going to try to blog here more.
Stop laughing. Just keep staring at Rifter over there on the left. And I’ll update here for the blog tour because there will be giveaways along the way! Hope everyone’s doing well and having a good start to 2012 – we had our first dusting of snow last night so it’s finally starting to feel like winter. I like winter. Probably because I commute from the bedroom to the kitchen and back…
First, I can’t thank all of you enough for all the great feedback I’m getting about IN THE AIR TONIGHT (it released Tuesday – you can get more info about the book here!) I’m so glad so many people are loving Mace and Paige 🙂
March 6, 2012 / Signet
The full moon is their mistress. They are predators of pleasure and pain. Feared by humans, envied by werewolves, the Dire Wolves are immortal shifters, obeying no laws but their own bestial natures. Once they were many, but now only six remain, a dangerous wolfpack forever on the hunt…
Rifter leads the pack, embracing the lifestyle and ethics of an outlaw biker even as he battles an ancient enemy who has become a new, powerful force. But with his Brother Wolf raging inside him, howling to be unleashed, he needs to satisfy his hungers. And when he meets a drop-dead gorgeous blonde drinking alone in a bar that caters to both human and inhuman, Rifter’s primal instinct is to claim her.
Gwen has her own desires, long unfulfilled. She hopes a passionate night with the leather-clad, Harley-riding biker will ease her suffering. The seizures that have wracked her body her entire life are incurable—and they’re killing her.
But none of that will matter if Rifter can’t stop the growing threat to them all–trappers who are determined to enslave humankind and use the Dire wolves as part of their nefarious plan.
NAL got this cover SO RIGHT! I’m in love – I mean, this guy IS Rifter. YAY!!!
So this morning my mom’s driving me up to get my bloodwork done (because of this horrible migraine and I don’t drive when I’m on the meds) and she’s telling me about all the mountain lions spotted in Connecticut and New York, like, five minutes away. Like, where Zoo and Gus run through the nature study woods.
And I’m like, you know, I’m betting it’s a family of shifters who moved into the area!
Mom: What are you talking about?
Me: A family of mountain lion shifters. Like, they’re people who can become mountain lions. How cool is that?
Mom: You’re really nuts, you know that?
I knew you all would understand.
Anyway, my NAL paranormal series has titles and a series name! Book one is Dire Needs: A Novel of the Eternal Wolf Clan and, according to Amazon, it’s available March 6, 2012! I should have cover copy approved soon (and a cover) but you can find out a little more about the series here. I’m having a blast writing these books! Oh, and yes, it’ll be available on Kindle and Nook and such, but sometimes those links take a little longer to go up.
Also, Sydney Croft’s Taken By Fire, ACRO Book 6 got a Top Pick from RT Book Reviews! Of course, a certain 11 month old shredded the magazine beyond repair so I don’t have the actual review, but it was a great one!
I’m in the middle of writing a couple of proposals and waiting to hear some news on something. Well, actually, I’ve heard some news, but I can’t share it yet. So fingers crossed that it all goes smoothly. I’ll let you all know as soon as I can!
In a couple of weeks, RWA NYC will be upon me, so I’m trying to prep for that. Larissa and her husband will be staying here for a few days before the conference, too, so it’ll be great to spend some downtime with them before the madness of the conference begins. The conference is always a bit overwhelming to me but I’m excited to catch up with writing buds and blogging friends I’ll be meeting for the first time!
