And the Winners Are...

September 23, 2015

a Rafflecopter giveaway


Everyone's been contacted, and they'll be getting their shiny new copies of BACK TO THE SKY ASAP. Thanks so much to everyone who checked out the blog tour! If you missed the rest of the activity, it's still worth checking out for little tidbits and rambles, so here's what went on:

@ MM Good I talked about the elements and my fascination with elemental creatures and characters. Includes a book review!
@ Diverse Reader I did something a little more personal than usual and talked about authors (... me) putting pieces of themselves (... myself >.>) into characters. Includes a book review!
@ The Romance Studio I talked about the inspiration for the "Dirty Girl Scouts" excerpt. Body shots ftw.
@ Joyfully Jay you'll find an exclusive, super NSFW excerpt. Looking to heat things up, here's the ticket! Feeling blue that you didn't win a copy? Let this salve your wounded soul!

Right that's coming on a little strong, but you get my point.

Thanks so much for coming along for the ride. ♥

Fall Happenings

September 14, 2015

So many fall happenings in the works right now, I'm just gonna bullet list this baby. You ready? I'm ready!

Back to the Sky Book Tour!

Still happening, y'all. Here's the count of who has been so good as to let me drop in, and what, exactly, I was talking about there:

"Some Kind of Magic" @ The Novel Approach - Talking about the weird magic in the Elemetnals series and just what it can mean for a story.
"Rock N Roll and Bad Poetry" @ Love Bytes - Zane fancies himself a songwriter. Oh deaaaar...
"Being Afraid of Love" @ Prism Book Alliance - The Four Noble truths and a fear of being hurt again. Come on, we've all been there. Well, that latter thing, anyhow. Only Geordie likes to mix the two.

Yet to come this week: 

And remember, you get THREE entries in the ongoing Rafflecopter Giveaway for copies of Back to the Sky (it's at the bottom of the posts!) for commenting on these blogs, so don't be shy.

Discounts! Discounts!

Not sure how long this will last, but for the moment, Loose Id has By the River, the first of the Elemental books (water) on a pretty deep discount right now. You don't need it to read Back to the Sky--they're totally unrelated except thematically--but if you liked BttS or want to get the full effect, check it out on the Loose Id page.

I am also relatively sure that as of tomorrow (Tuesday), BttS itself will be 10% off--as is the tradition with last week's new releases at Loose Id. So if you didn't have time or money or just plain forgot last week, check it out this week!

If you want info on By the River, check its page out here at the site. Lots of excerpts and all the usual to be had.

Time to get spoopy!

I've mentioned this off-hand, and it's been on my Coming Soon page since, well, since I made that page last month, but! My Halloween novelette, Pr├Žsidium, will be popping up as part of Torquere's Haunted Hotties collection one month from today. Spookiness and hotness all in one package. (I'd say tiny package, but I feel like I'd get dirty looks from Thackeray, my demon hunter protag. And he's kind of a bad-ass, so...)

More on that soon, but I just wanted to put it out there. Possibly because Halloween is my favorite. POSSIBLY.

On the case!

Kanaan & Tilney, our mystery solving team extraordinaire, is coming soon from Loose Id! Jenna Rose and I are excited to announce a late October planned release for the boys and their first mystery, The Case of the Arms Dealers. Adventure, murder, handcuffs! Well, not a lot of the latter, though now John's thought about it that may change.

Ahem. Anyhow, come meet our unstoppable praeternatural detective team, Lowell Kanaan and John Tilney, over at their shiny website, Be sure to check out their individual bios too, for some funny/ridiculous sneek peeks at personality.

There's.... a lot of personality going on between them. Too much sometimes.

Okay I think I hit everything, but as you can see, it's... a lot. So stay tuned and I'll be piping up with more bits and pieces as things happen.

Book Birthday: Back to the Sky!

September 8, 2015

We have books! Obviously authors love it when you go publisher direct (and LI does some cool rewards program stuff, if you shop there a lot), but for reasons of convenience and gift cards and all that, have a few more too. Here are the first of the Back to the Sky buy links~ 

Be sure to check out the start of my Back to the Sky blog tour, too: Today I hit up The Novel Approach, where I talk about the, uh, different treatment "magic" gets in these Elementals books. Comes complete with a never-before-seen excerpt as illustration! 

Oh yeah, also, Rafflecopter giveaway for copies, in case buying is not an option just yet. I feel ya.

ETA: it occurs to me that in my travel flurry of the last month, I haven't posted anything about warnings for this book! I know there are some themes that can either turn off or outright trigger people, so in the interest of both enjoyment and safety, here are some potential flags for you guys.  Of course I try to handle all these themes well, but I totally understand just not wanting to go there sometimes. They are vaguely spoilery, so please highlight below to see them:

-Brief sugarkink/light bondage
-Sex work
-Respectability politics
-Alcohol use, occasionally irresponsibly so

Cover + Preorder -- BACK TO THE SKY time is nigh

September 6, 2015

Yes, it's true, Mina Carter's cover for BACK TO THE SKY is glorious. Gnnnnnnn.

The book is out this Tuesday, but if you pre-order via Loose Id right now, you get a discount! Weee! This is gonna be a week (or two) full of BttS fun, though, so stick around for updates. ♥ Don't forget, there are excerpts and more here.
