May 2017 updates

I’ve got a ton of updates for you all regarding free books, audio, and other stuff.  Things have been a bit hectic for me lately, so I didn’t get a chance to mention some of them sooner, but to make up for that I’ll do a giveaway at the end of this post.

First off, Darkness Haunts (book 1 of the Sensor Series) is currently free on Amazon, B&N, Kobo, and iTunes.  This is the first time I’ve ever dropped the price that low since I released it over four years ago.  If any of you haven’t tried this series yet, this is your chance to check it out.  The price will be going back up to $3.99 in about a week so be sure to grab it while you can.  It is whispersynced for the audio listeners out there, too.

Speaking of which, Darkness Taunts (book 2 of the Sensor Series) is finally whispersynced as well for anyone who might have skipped grabbing the audio of that one (I’ve heard some people didn’t get it for that reason).

 


Next up is Stalked by Flames.  While all of the Dragon’s Breath books are exclusive to Amazon for the moment, and in the Kindle Unlimited program for people to borrow, the first book in the series is also available to Amazon Prime readers for free.  This will only last for a few more weeks, so pick up your copy of Stalked by Flames if you haven’t already.  And yes, it is whispersynced for the audio listeners who might want to grab that as well.

Also, those waiting on Christmas with Dragons to be in audio don’t have much longer to wait.  It should be available by the end of May.  The narrator and sound engineers are wrapping up production on it now.


In case some of you were holding out on picking up Destined for Shadows until it was in Kindle Unlimited, it is in the program now.  I’ll keep it there for the time being, but the next installment in the Dark Destiny Series, Destined for Dreams, will be wide on all the retailers for a short period before it goes into KU.  The release for that will likely be in late June of this year.

Destined for Shadows is also now available in paperback for those who are interested.  I don’t have news for audio yet, but I’ll let you know as soon as I do.  There will likely be a separate post about what is going on with that.


Now for the giveaway!  One lucky individual will win a paperback copy of Destined for Shadows, a tote bag, and a fridge magnet.  All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below (with a valid email address in the appropriate field) and tell me which of my books you have liked the best so far.

This giveaway will run until midnight (CDT) on Sunday, May 7th, 2017.  One random person will be chosen as the winner.  I will respond to them in the comments section below and send them an email to get their mailing information.  This is open to international contestants.

July updates

I hope everyone is having a great summer (or winter if you’re in Australia).  I’ve got a few updates for you all including a price promotion, upcoming author interviews, and news on future books.  First off, though, I want to thank everyone who has picked up a copy of Dancing with Flames and especially those who have been kind enough to leave reviews.  All the feedback has been wonderful so far, and I’m glad everyone is enjoying the new Dragon’s Breath series book!

As of now until August 31st, Amazon UK is running a £0.99 summer price promo on Stalked by Flames.  If you haven’t already picked up your copy and you shop on the UK site, this is the time to grab it.  *UPDATE* It appears it is .99 in the other European countries as well so those of you in Germany, France, etc can get the ebook copy at a discount too.  I’m not sure if this includes VAT or not since that won’t show from my computer in the U.S.

Also, I am beginning a series of author interviews for popular writers who have novels in the same genres as I do.  There will be a different author featured each Friday.  I will be putting them on the spot, giving them a series of fun questions to choose from such as “What is the longest you’ve ever stayed awake?”, “What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?”,  and “If you could witness any event in history, what would it be?” and plenty more.  Each one will vary a bit depending on which questions the author chooses to answer, but I hope this gives you all an opportunity to meet new authors or get to know the ones you already follow better than before.

Some of them will also be doing giveaways with their interviews that you don’t want to miss!  Below is the schedule for July and August, though there are more set to come after that which I’ll announce when the time gets closer:

July 8th- Christine Pope
July 15th- Colleen Gleason
July 22nd- Dannika Dark
July 29th- Hailey Edwards
Aug 5th- Anthea Sharp
Aug 12th- Donna Augustine
Aug 19th- Carolynn Gockel
Aug 26th- Jovee Winters

 

As for news on Forged by Flames (book 3 of the Dragon’s Breath series), I am looking at a release date around October 27th, 2016.  This isn’t quite set in stone yet, but that’s what I’m shooting for at the moment. I’ll keep you updated as I make progress with the novel.  Also, there may or may not be a Christmas novella to come after that in December *wink, wink* where we have some post-apocalyptic festivities with the Dragon’s Breath series characters.
