Three Things Thursday: Book Contest Edition

Hi! It’s October, which is the best month of the year. A few years ago, I did a All Hallow’s Read giveaway every year in which I sent one (or two) lucky readers a free scary book. I haven’t done that for a few years, but this year, I’m gonna do a book giveaway – but with a small twist. I’m going to make you enter to win copies of my books instead. SO THERE!

There is one way to be entered, but two additional (it is three things Thursday, after all) ways to boost your chances.

  1. Like my Facebook page. You can comment on this or any related post on my facebook page to confirm that you want an entry (previous page likers are encouraged to participate, and can just mention that you want to be entered).
  2. Share this post on Facebook and encourage your friends and family to like me. Well, they don’t have to like me, I can be awkward and difficult at times. They just need to like my page. Please chime in and comment that you’ve shared so I don’t miss it.
  3. Tell me (on the blog or on FB) either (a) what you’re going to be for Halloween this year or, alternatively, (b) what your #1 all-time favorite costume ever was. Bonus for pictures.

So, you may ask, what kind of prize would make it all worth it? Honestly, I’m not sure. I don’t have a lot of cash money to be sharing with the masses, but I can guarantee that the #1 winner will get some exciting snail mail consisting of all three paperbacks autographed and the #2 winner will get voucher codes for all three ebooks.

So, like my page! Share this post! Show me your costumes!

Writerly Wednesday: Book Updates

As of *checks watch* about five days ago, I am no longer participating in the Kindle Unlimited program. The reasons for this are myriad and have been covered by other authors in so many other forums. The short version is – Amazon’s Kindle Select payment options have dropped every month since I enrolled (save August, which saw a slight bump back up) and I’m just not getting enough page reads to make the exclusivity worth it for me.

So – The Cardinal Gate and The Waning Moon are available at so many other places now! (I’m hoping to get The Ruby Blade up for pre-order on all those other places, but it’s taking awhile to yank that one from the Kindle Select, so right now, you can only pre-order via Amazon Kindle.)

So – to celebrate my books going wide, The Ruby Blade’s upcoming release, and the fact that it’s October, i.e. the best month of the year, The Cardinal Gate and The Waning Moon are on sale for the entire month for only $0.99 each. Right around 11/2, the prices will be going back up to their regular prices of $2.99 and $3.99 respectively.

So – now’s your chance to snag those ebooks for only $0.99 each! DO EET! DO EET FOR THE CHILDREN! (Just kidding, please do not read these books to your children. There is some Strong Language and Violence and Sexual Content) that makes these super not appropriate for the children.)

Surprisingly, this book links to all the places you can buy THIS fine book.

 

Happy reading!

Three Things Thursday: Ruby Blade

  1. In case you missed it, The Ruby Blade cover reveal and preorder announcement went up last night! You can pop over to Goodreads and mark it as “to read” and then head to Amazon to preorder your copy!
  2. The book is currently with editor extraordinaire getting once last look-see, and then I’ll be sending out ARCs, having it proofread, and then sending it to my formatter to work her magic.

    There’s probably a wand involved somewhere, too.

     

  3. If you read The Cardinal Gate or The Waning Moon, I’d be beyond delighted if you could head over to Amazon to leave a review for either or both of them. Getting to 50 reviews lets the books get picked up by Amazon’s algorithms, which results in more people seeing my book, and presumably buying my book, which makes it easier for me to keep writing books. (This is also presumably some kind of eldritch magic.)

Cover Reveal! The Ruby Blade

I am so excited to share this with you guys. I love my cover artist and what she’s been doing for the series, and really think this captures Eleanor and where she’s at with The Ruby Blade.

As much as doing the cover art is one of the most fun parts of the gig, writing the accompanying blurb is my least favorite part.

I mean, I have one, but I think the real winner is the version I came up with Monday evening as I was workshopping this in my author group chat (for the 1 millionth time):

Just buy it. It’s not that bad.

NAKED HOTTUB SCENE!

GOOD FIGHTING!

The Blurb

Raj swore he’d pay any price to recover the blade he’d wielded a thousand years ago, but what if that price is Eleanor’s trust?

Eleanor is beset on all sides by supernatural enemies determined to halt her quest to reopen otherworldly traffic between Earth and the Fae Plane. Double-dealing shifters, black magic, and treacherous elves challenge the skills and cohesion of the group.

The chill that threatens to send her dragon half into hibernation does nothing to bank the fires of her desire for Raj—but Florence’s cryptic warning prevents her from succumbing to his charms. Raj is not what he seems and he is hiding something far darker than Eleanor ever imagined.

Will she be able to forgive him or will the truth kill her?

And, without further ado, the cover!

 

Didn’t Skyla do an amazing job?

I’m super excited for you guys to read this book! ARCs will be headed out the end of next week (maybe earlier) and the release is set for 10/31/17.

You can add it to your Goodreads queue The Ruby Blade (Eleanor Morgan #3)  and even preorder it on Amazon (Kindle version only at this point).

Book Review: Shameless Begging

Hey readers…quick request. If you read either The Cardinal Gate or The Waning Moon, can you pretty, pretty please go post a review for them? I don’t care if you didn’t love them. (If your last name is Cissell, though, you can’t leave a review.)

It doesn’t have to be much. Just pick a title (This book was aces!) or (I liked it alright) or (Meh), a star-ranking, and a couple sentences that make it sound like you actually read the book. (If you didn’t read it, don’t review it. That’s weird.)

You can set up an anonymous name and I’ll never know who you are. I promise you won’t hurt my feelings if you don’t like it. I’ve heard a lot of negative things about my books (and more than enough positive things to balance it), but reviews are really awesome to help indie authors like me gain traction.

I really appreciate everyone who’s supported me by buying, downloading, and reading…and I’d appreciate you so extra hard if you’d review.

(Pssstttt…I’m gonna be doing a HYUGENORMOUS giveaway involving three signed paperbacks and a few other fun goodies as soon as The Cardinal Gate gets to 50 reviews…we’ve a ways to go, though, so don’t hold your breath.)

In the meantime, I’m trucking along with writing and editing and eating regularly and sleeping and watching too many murder shows late at night when it’s windy and the branches scrape the house and things get blown into the doors. Still working on getting to my ideal state, but I’m feeling a little better about it today.
