Shadows Deep Is Here! Launch Madness Begins

I have to tell you, I am THRILLED to finally be able to say that the Edge of Shadows sequel, Shadows Deep is available! I am so appreciative of all of the support I’ve received since the release of EoS in November 2011, and it has been phenomenal to have one of the very first questions from fans be “When’s the next book coming out?” It created a lot of pressure too. 🙂

From the beginning, I’ve had the makings of 4 different book series in my mind. (You’ve seen the first book in three of them now.) I had to make a choice in March if I was going to work on the first book in the 4th series, or go back and revisit Ellie and crew to find out what happens next in her journey, so I created the book in physical and digital forms, using Sodapdf to edit the digital versions.

Well, it’s pretty clear which direction I went and I am so happy that I did. Creating a sequel was a lot more work than I was expecting, but at the same time it was like coming home. Ellie’s facing a whole new set of problems in Shadows Deep, and I can tell you that she’s finding out things about herself and her past that she never saw coming. And…it’s not over yet. I can now share that there will be a third installment of the Shadows series that you will likely see before the end of 2012.

Now for the Fun Stuff: Launch Goodies!!

May 15th is the “official” launch date for Shadows Deep, and I’ve got some fun stuff planned for everyone.

1) I want to give away some copies of Shadows Deep, of course! So 5 ebook copies (Kindle or Nook) are up for grabs. What do you have to do to be entered to win one? Either comment here on this post OR on my Facebook fan page and tell me who your favorite Edge of Shadows character was and why. I will pick 5 random winners and announce them on Friday, May 18th.

2) The Edge of Shadows Kindle book is on sale through June 30th, 2012 for only $0.99!  Grab your copy today or gift one to a friend.  On May 15th, you’ll even find it for FREE on Amazon.

3) If you like vampires and you haven’t tried my vampire series, I invite you to download Heiress of Lies for FREE on May 15th-May 16th. If it strikes your fancy, I’d love to hear from you.

4) I’ve started a Q&A group over on Goodreads entirely focused on discussing Shadows Deep. Join in the conversation and ask me anything you want as you are reading it.

Thank you to everyone who has supported me so far on this writing journey, and know I’ve got lots more planned for you this summer.

Happy Reading!

Friday the 13th Freebies!

Friday the 13th only comes around a few times a year, and to me these days are like ready made holidays just for me. It’s a day when you expect to find black cats crossing your path, shadows lurking, and a ghost around every corner. My kind of day. 🙂

So in honor of today, I wanted to tell you about some fabulous freebies that will be available today (including my own!).  Now a part of me wanted to just focus on paranormal books, but the more I thought about it, I was sure that even the diehard paranormal fans out there enjoy a book outside the genre every now and then. So there’s a little something here for everyone (including one big GIANT link at the end).

James Todd Cochrane- Max and the Gatekeeper – Young Adult Fantasy/Science Fiction

Dayla Moon – Swarm -Paranormal Murder Mystery

Angela Muse- Lil Glimmer– Children’s

Lisa Grace – Angel in the Shadows (Book I) – Fantasy

M.D James- As the Snow Falls – Gothic Horror

Margaret Lake – A Slice of Life – Contemporary Romance

And lest I forget: Cege Smith – Heiress of Lies – Dark Fantasy/Horror

And if your finger is still twitching for a “Download” button to click to get more free goodies, then I invite you to check out the Kindle Book Bananza going on all day today- over 70 books, all genres, FREE.

Spread the word, and stay safe out there. You know, you’re better off staying inside and reading anyway. 😉
