I shared a few copies of The Rampart Guards and in turn received a delightful surprise that I love so much I want to preserve it forever here on my blog.
Thank you to all the students for the wonderful note! You made my day! :)
Sadly, or perhaps happily if you're somewhere where the heat / humidity / bugs / insert-element-of-summer-that-displeases-you has become too much, summer is coming to an end. In Colorado, that means cooler evenings that trigger leaves to change to fall colors. And autumn is one of my favorite seasons. Not that I'm looking forward to snow, but it can be delightful as well.
But to celebrate the changing of the seasons, and prepare for those days when you might want to hunker down and listen to a good book, how about downloading a copy of The Rampart Guards? And I'm not talking about any old copy -- I'm talking about a FREE copy. I'm giving away five copies of the audiobook, narrated by the stellar and talented Brian Callanan. He did a tremendous job with the narration, and I have no doubt you'll enjoy it. Enter below and maybe you'll be the big winner!
Contest runs August 24th - September 5th 2016
This year is off to a big start for me. THE RAMPART GUARDS, my debut novel, launches into the world on February 26th. Along with that, I now have an author page on Amazon, and another one on Goodreads. Crazy!
I also received this review from Foreword Clarion Reviews -- made me giddy!
If you want to celebrate the release of my novel, please join us for the launch party at BookBar on February 26th. I'll also be signing books at Tattered Cover Bookstore - Aspen Grove in March (final date yet tbd). Current info is on my Events page.
I'm also thrilled to be part of Wicked Ink Books, a great group that includes me and six other fantastic authors. On March 28th, we're releasing our first anthology of novellas, all tied to one theme (more about that to come). This is a group of smart, dedicated women, and I'm proud to be part of this team.
In my sights for the year ahead is to write the next two books in my Jason Lex series (Jason is my protagonist in THE RAMPART GUARDS) and get them polished and ready for release in 2017. I'll also write a new short story for the second anthology from Wicked Ink Books. Oh, and then I have the rest of "life stuff" to do -- me thinks I'm going to be busy! I'm so thankful for the supportive friends and family in my life. I couldn't do this without them.
For all of us, I hope this is the best year yet, but not the best year ever. :)
