So! In case you missed it, I sold eight books in about a month, starting in December and ending on New Years Day. I've got to admit that it felt pretty darned good. Since the world's been kinda tough lately, I thought it might be nice to pass on the pretty-darned-goodness. I sold eight books; how about I give away eight books to celebrate? I love winning books myself, and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone there.

But what books to give out? After all, my new titles won't hit the shelves for a while yet. (But it'll be fast! The Supernaturals of Las Vegas series will launch this spring--the books are already written!) So I decided to celebrate my sales with a selection of titles from my new publisher, Inked Entertainment. The lucky winner will receive the following paperbacks. Hopefully you'll discover some new favorites here. You can horde them all to yourself, laughing maniacally, or even give some away if you're feeling generous.

The prize pack includes the following books:
  • Chosen (Danika Frost #0.5) by Connor Ashley and Charlotte Page (urban fantasy)
  • A Touch Mortal (The Siders #1) by Leah Clifford (YA paranormal romance)
  • Must Love Otters (Revelation Cove #1) by Eliza Gordon (romance)
  • Thrall (Supernaturals of Las Vegas #1) by Carrie Harris (paranormal romance)
  • Running Home (Vampires of Fate #1) by Julie Hutchings (paranormal romance)
  • The Harpy by Julie Hutchings (horror)
  • Kill Order (Maggie Black #1) by Jack McSporran (thriller)
  • Dead Awake by Jack McSporran (YA paranormal)
And if you don't win, never fear! Everyone who enters will get a free copy of my zombie short story "Lifegard Research Station #4" and the first chapter of Thrall, the first book in the Supernaturals of Las Vegas paranormal romance series, both in PDF. Also, if you choose to sign up for my newsletter as a part of your contest entries, you get a free copy of my Alien Abducted novella. So in total, you could get a novella, a short story, and a chapter preview just for entering! I will email those to everyone who enters after I pick the winner. I won't save your email addresses, and I won't contact you there again unless you sign up for the newsletter. (Unless, of course, you email me to tell me you're having a problem with your downloads or something.) I also won't give away your contact information to anyone--including other authors--because that's just shady.

The rules are simple! Enter via the Rafflecopter below. You can visit various social media places to learn more about me or about Inked titles, tweet (daily, even, if you want), and sign up for newsletters. This drawing is open internationally, so long as you're willing to wait for customs to do their thing. (I am in the US.) You just have to be 18 or older to enter, since some of the books contain adult type things. It's open through 12 AM Mountain Time on 3/6/2020, and I'll announce the winner on the 7th, which is Thrall's release day!

Some of the entries require that you do something like follow me--if you're already a follower, that counts, so put your info in!

The full rules are in the Rafflecopter, but I've kept it pretty easy. I hope you'll enter and help spread the word, and I'm crossing all my crossables that YOU are the winner!

New Review Crew

I cannot believe I'm saying this, but the Supernaturals of Las Vegas series is going to print! Thrall, the first book in the series, launches on March 7th, with the rest of the books to follow through April and May. I am more excited than a vampire at a blood bank or a werewolf with a chew toy.

Please note that the books are much better than my jokes just were.

Anyway. As you've probably already heard (and maybe from me), reviews can really make or break a series. With that in mind, I'm launching a new Review Crew. It's simple--I'll give out free ebooks to people who commit to reviewing them on Amazon after the book comes out. Once you post a review, you get the next book! That means you could read the whole series for free, and all you need to do is review them on the 'Zon. You don't need to have a blog or experience reviewing.

I probably don't need to say this, but I will--honest review, folks. They don't have to be all positive, because no book is for everyone. That's totally okay. Talking about the book honestly--about what you like as well as what didn't work for you--will help it find its fans.

I won't just be using this crew for the Supernaturals of Las Vegas books either. When I have review copies of my upcoming books, I'll offer them to the Review Crew first. So if you're interested in reviewing, but paranormal romance isn't your thing, it's still worth signing up. You can pick and choose what you receive.

If you'd like to join the crew, it's easy. Fill out this form, and I'll get back to you as soon as I have copies to share!

New Books? How About EIGHT?

It's been a while! These days, I spend most of my time on work--writing books and also working as a freelance ghostwriter and gaming consultant--although I do love my Twitter and Facebook. If you'd like to chat with me on the regular, I hope you'll reach out to me there. As much as I've loved blogging in the past, this space has really become the Big Announcement space and not the Chat About Random Things space it used to be.

You know what that means, though? It means that I'm here with a Big Announcement! The past few years have held a lot of upheaval for me in the professional space. I left my day job in the gaming industry and devoted myself to jumpstarting my writing career. It took some time and a heckload of effort, but I finally have the first batch of news to share!

I sold eight books over the past couple of months.

I'm about as shocked as you might expect, which is really shocked. I'm not sure it'll feel real until I hold them in my hands. But yeah. Eight new books in print, and they'll be coming to you fast. Let me tell you a little about them.

First, we've got the Supernaturals of Las Vegas series, with an accompanying paranormal romance collection. If you've been following my social media, you'll know that I took a dip into writing adult paranormal romance under a pseudonym a while back. The series digs into the dangerous lives and passionate relationships of the paranormal residents of Sin City. Each book brings you a different couple--including vampires, were-scorpions, angels of death, faeries, and more. These books aren't for kids--they're definitely adult romances, although the heat level is fairly mild. I love action and adventure and danger, so they're jam packed full of those things too.

The fine folks at Inked Entertainment have picked up the series, plus eight PNR novellas that are perfect to read over your lunch break or any time you'd like a complete story but don't have the time to finish a whole book. The novellas will be published in a collection called Tryst, and all five of the books will be available in print as well as electronic formats. They've designed brand new covers for them that are pretty smoking hot if I do say so myself.

These books will come out in Spring of 2020, which is right around the corner! I'll update you on the details as they become available.

But that's not all! I also have a new epic fantasy series for adults, which I'm cowriting with Connor Ashley, also for Inked Entertainment. The Assassin's Revenge series is a three book epic about an assassin who isn't exactly what she seems. I've really loved writing about Larina, who uses strategy and intelligence to survive in a dangerous world. She really understands the mental aspects of conflict, and that's been super fun to write. You'll get to meet Larina, her smartass drakon Zemora, and more in the first volume, The Crown of Blood and Fire, which will also come out in 2020.

And look at these gorgeous covers. I cannot decide which one's my favorite, which is a good problem to have.

I'll tell you more about these as we get closer, too!

I'm really grateful to David and Debbie at Inked Entertainment and Kate Testerman, my super agent at kt literary. And to all of you for sticking by me. I hope you're as excited about these new books as I am. I've been flailing around like an excited muppet for the past few weeks!
