My Summer Weekend Freebie

cover imageLast weekend I offered the kindle version of my first novel titled THE BETWEEN WORLD for free and I hope that everyone who snagged a copy gets a chance to read and enjoy it over the summer.

This weekend, I’m giving away the kindle version of my second novel, GHOSTS DON’T WEAR SILK STOCKINGS, for free now through Sunday. If you don’t have a kindle, you can download a kindle app so there are no excuses.

Admittedly, I have trouble giving this one away. I’m not sure what it is that makes readers so reluctant to give the story a chance. Is it the title? The cover? The story blurb? All of the above? If you have any thoughts, please feel free to share them because as I’ve mentioned in past posts, I’m planning to revisit my stories and find ways to improve them. I’m all for change.

And if you happen to read the book and have suggestions on how I can improve the story as well, I’m all ears.

In the meantime, Happy Summer Solstice! It’s official. Summer is here and it is hot, hot, hot. Time to pick up your kindle and head to the pool for a little relaxation. Happy Reading! summersun

Six Sentence Sunday – Naked Problems

This is an exceptionally exciting Six Sentence Sunday for me because not only do I offer you six sentences today, but I’m offering you the whole book this week! It doesn’t get much better than that.

First things first, to see a list of all the Six Sunday participants, click HERE. You won’t be disappointed.

And of course, I couldn’t leave you without six sentences from Ghosts Don’t Wear Silk Stockings.

Brianna just wants love and happily ever after, but of course it isn’t going to be that simple. Along the way she will have to endure ghosts and learning the secrets of a family curse…

“What’s going on?” His forehead creased in concern. Apparently it had never occurred to him before that she might have a life of her own that didn’t involve being naked with him. She squirmed in her seat wishing she hadn’t thought about being naked. After all, Jake was dead in her apartment, an apartment that just went up in a puff of smoke. That was a bigger problem than the gooey mushy feeling of her insides every time she looked at Dan.

Ghosts Don’t Wear Silk Stockings is making its way onto Amazon as we speak. Click HERE  to purchase the paperback. I’ll supply the kindle link soon! In the meantime, be sure to enter the giveaway on Goodreads HERE for your chance to win a copy.

Can I Get a Ghostly Drum Roll, Please?

cover imageI know you were starting to think it wouldn’t happen and honestly, so was I. I’ve gone back and forth on this one a lot.

Today, I am ecstatic to announce that the release of Ghosts Don’t Wear Silk Stockings is finally upon us…

January 7, 2013 is the big day so mark your calendars!

Yay! Yay! Yay! 🙂

The book is available to add to your Goodreads ‘to-read’ shelf today. Click HERE. I am giving away two free copies of the paperback on Goodreads as well. You can enter the giveaway HERE.

In the meantime, Happy New Year! I wish everyone a joyous new year of health, happiness, and reading pleasure.

I leave you with the blurb for Ghosts …

***

Brianna Halloway longed for an ordinary life of marriage and happily ever after but her path to Mr. Right always seemed to end in disaster. When she meets Dan Parker, everything feels like it is finally falling into place. He is tall, dark, handsome, and his own brand of delicious evil. Dan has a hold over Brianna that she can’t shake. The day that he asks her to marry him should be the happiest day of her life but there is one catch; Dan Parker is not human and a moody ghost named Greer is determined to stop Brianna from making a mistake. Will she choose to trust Greer or will she follow her heart to what she is certain will lead to an immortal life of happiness?

In the meantime, Brianna’s ex-boyfriend Jake has returned from the dead determined to make her pay for choosing Dan over him while a seemingly harmless old woman at a bookstore appears to hold the key to answering the secret of her problems. Even her ordinary family harbors a secret curse that will affect her in ways that are impossible for her to ignore. Brianna must endure losing her job, her apartment, and dealing with her violent ex before she can choose to give in to Dan’s temptations or walk away.

See you in 2013!

Sunday Snippet – Boyfriends That Won’t Stay Dead

I didn’t get around to signing up on the official Six Sentence Sunday website but being the kind, generous soul that I am, I couldn’t let the day pass without coming back to share a snippet of the forever-work-in-progress.

I’m pretty excited about this because I’m finally … yes finally … getting ready to release my new novel to the world. (It sure has been a roller coaster of a ride though, hasn’t it?) The title won’t change, after all, so sorry for any confusion last week’s post may have caused. The actual release date is still to-be-determined but when I know, you will know!

So on to my snippet. Since I’m not officially a six-sentence participant, I’m cheating a bit and adding a few extra sentences. Shhh… don’t tell anyone.

***

“Relax,” Dan said reaching out and stroking her arms from across the small table, “There isn’t anyone or any thing that I can’t take care of. As long as you’re with me, he wouldn’t dare cross that line.”

“That doesn’t even make sense, Dan. Doesn’t it even seem the least bit odd to you that my dead ex-boyfriend came back from the grave?”

“Well, it is an inconvenience, I suppose.”

“An inconvenience? It’s a lot more than an inconvenience! These sorts of things just don’t happen. They don’t happen to normal people. Why the hell do they keep happening to me?”

“I think you’re going to need another one of these,” Dan said picking up her empty glass and motioning for the bar attendant.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog. Happy Reading!

 

Six Sentence Sunday – Back at It

I haven’t been around in a while. Did you miss me? (Of course you did. Silly question.)

Nanowrimo just about did me in but I finished it and made it to 50K without hurting myself or anyone else in the process so it’s all good. Now that I’ve just about recovered, I figured I’d jump back into the blog on my favorite posting day … Six Sentence Sunday!

Yes, friends, it’s that magical time again when I torture you with six sentences of something. There are lots of us participating in the madness so if you want to sample some of what others bring to the table, then be sure to click here for the official list.

But wait! Before you go … Don’t forget to read my offering. It will only hurt for a minute. I promise.

And just what shall I share this week? Well, let’s see. I have some good news. I’m finally getting around to putting the finishing touches on the story formally known as Ghosts Don’t Wear Silk Stockings. This story is back new and improved slapped with a shiny new title and cover. I’m calling it Dating and Divining nowadays (but whether or not this sticks is yet to be determined). Release is just around the corner so I’ll have more news soon.

My six puts you right back in the middle of life with our good friend Brianna Halloway. This girl has guy problems of supernatural proportions.

“Sorry, I didn’t mean to scare you,” he said with a smile that revealed perfectly white teeth. There wasn’t a hair on his head that was out of place, as if he’d just stepped out of the pages of a magazine. As a matter of fact, she thought, he bared a striking resemblance to the man on the cover of the romance novel she’d just finished reading. She looked at the cover again and back to the man who still watched her curiously and shook her head to clear such strange thoughts. It couldn’t be.

“It’s okay,” she said trying to find her voice, “I was just leaving.”

I will return soon with details on the release of the book and how you can read more than six sentences at a time. But if you’re really crazy about those six sentence snippets then come back next Sunday for another sneak peek…
