#TeaserTuesday ALPHA IMMORTALS #Boxset

Alpha Immortals Box SetI have a new #boxset being released today, but unfortunately it’s been caught up in the fight between my publisher and Amazon so we could really use your support for this set to make up for not being available for pre-order.

ALPHA IMMORTALS is a collection of tales about sexy bad boys! Here is a teaser for it:

    They’re strong, seductive, and supernaturally sexy badboys. Now, in this special box set of seven sizzling novels, meet the hottest immortal beings in this world-or any other . . .

    DARK AWAKENING by Kendra Leigh Castle: Shapeshifting vampire Tynan is ordered to find a human Seer with the power to secure victory for his clan. But when he has Lily in his grasp, her touch awakens within him a hunger like he’s never known.

    RENEGADE by Nancy Northcott: Top sheriff Valeria must hunt down Griffin, a traitor trained in dark magic. But when the fugitive mage suddenly risks his life to save the beautiful cop, both will find themselves running for their lives.

    THE LOST by Caridad Piñeiro: When paranormal enemies hunt Adam for his lethal gifts, he must escape with Bobbie, a sexy woman who makes him feel more human than he ever imagined.

Guilty Pleasure Adam Bruno Sin Hunter

Crazy day today! Still recovering from the great Liberty States Fiction Writers Conference. Had a blast, but got home and got back to work. Today I’m sharing a slightly different Guilty Pleasure: Adam Bruno, Sin Hunter.

Adam is the hero in my upcoming release, THE LOST, which will hit shelves on July 26th. THE LOST is the first book in the exciting new paranormal romance SIN HUNTERS series.

Here’s a little blurb about Adam.

Adam Bruno is no ordinary millionaire. The heir to an ancient race possessing a dark, powerful magic, he can shapeshift and create energy. His gifts make him a living weapon and have forced him to live in seclusion. But now an inhuman force hunts down Adam-just when he finds someone who makes him feel more human than he ever imagined possible . . .

Fun Friday – Arts, Crafts & News

This weekend will be hopping for me! First there is the Liberty States Fiction Writers Mayke It Happen get together! Can’t wait to go and hang out with all of my buds and talking about our writing projects.

I’ll be down the shore and hoping to see some sun! But just in case it’s rainy, I’m sharing a fun project with you from my friend Kathy Cano-Murilla, the Crafty Chica aka the Goddess of Glitter! As writers and readers, we always seem to have a vast collection of pens and I thought this crazy pencil cup would be fun to share with you!

If it is sunny, I hope to get some time in along the boardwalk, researching some more spots for . . .

BOOKS 3 and 4 IN THE SINS SERIES!


Yes, you heard it here first! I’ve accepted an offer from Grand Central Publishing for two more books in the SINS series. Not only that, you won’t have to wait that long to read about the continuing adventures of the Carrera clan as well as some new and very dangerous people that will enter their lives (can we say some non-human people with very unusual and deadly powers?)

As you know, STRONGER THAN SIN will be out in November 2010 and you’ll be able to read both Books 3 and 4 in 2011 if all goes as planned! I can’t wait to share these exciting paranormal romance stories with you and I know you’ll all like to see what’s up with Mick, Caterina and Liliana as well as find out more about the dark creatures who will threaten the Carrera clan. As for who will be the hero and heroine in book 3 — here’s a hint: You’ve read about them already in one of the SINS-related books/prequels and you’ll see more of them in STRONGER THAN SIN!

That’s all the beans I’m spilling for now! Hope you all have a great weekend!

Guilty Pleasures Monday – Sexy Surfers

As I was taking a walk along the shore this weekend, I passed by more than one sexy surfer dude which is the inspiration for not only this morning’s Guilty Pleasure, but the hero in the second book in the SINS series – STRONGER THAN SIN.

Although the hero — Jesse Bradford — was formerly a professional football player, he grew up along the Jersey Shore and returns to live there after his career is prematurely ended by a disease that destroys his bones. Growing up along the shore, Jesse has a love of the ocean and spent many a summer surfing on the Jersey waves. He is a sexy surfer dude and his laid back attitude is definitely part of the attraction for Dr. Liliana Carrera.

I hope you enjoy this morning’s sexy surfer inspiration. Also, I snapped some photos with my phone as I took my walk and I hope you’ll enjoy those as well.

Goody Time!

Dragon*ConI’m off to Dragon*Con on Thursday! Dragon*Con is an immense pop culture convention which focuses on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film in the United States. I’ll be a Dragon*Con virgin, but will be with friends who will hopefully help me survive.

I also hope to be bringing you daily updates of what’s happening, since I hear this is an amazing convention!

In preparation, I’ve been putting together a number of goodies which are beneficial to have for conferences or conventions.

Many of the promotional materials that are going out are directed at the science fiction and fantasy crowd at Dragon*Con because of SINS OF THE FLESH is really a hybrid of romance, science fiction and suspense. Some have called SINS OF THE FLESH a science thriller, others paranormal romantic suspense. But regardless of what you call SINS, it clearly falls within the science fiction/fantasy realm thanks to the genetic engineering aspect in the book which leads to the romantic suspense.

Because of that, the bookmarks and postcards for Dragon*Con stress all those elements of the novel. If you’re in need of either bookmarks or postcards, there are a couple of good places that I’ve used and have been happy with — overnightprints.com and nextdayflyers.com.

If money is tight, there is Vistaprint where you can layout some smaller sized bookmarks using their postcard template. Use the free postcard option and you can make 200 bookmarks for the cost of the shipping. Take the postcards to a local printer and they can cut them down for you if you don’t want to do it yourself, but for greater volumes, try the other two companies. The stock is of heavier quality and glossy on both sides.

**Note on Vistaprint – make sure you know what you are signing up for when you click on any third party specials or to get any rewards. Some of them do involve fees.

What else will I be taking? Some t-shirts of course. Those are always popular. For low volume color t-shirts, again try Vistaprint when they are running a 50% special. For THE CALLING t-shirts, I used Creative Solutions, a local NJ company that did a beautiful job with them, especially since I got several hundred at a shot.

Buttons, buttons, buttons. People love to collect buttons. Purebuttons.com did the trick for me!

Pens. What kind of writer doesn’t like pens? National Pen and 4Imprint (who did a marvelous job on the lunch bags) are ones to check out.

Cover Flats are always a good thing to have. Fans love to have autographed cover flats in their collections. Your publisher should be able to provide you with a supply of these when it is closer to the release date of your novel.

For reader/writer based conferences — if you can get ARCs to distribute that’s a good thing. Be sure to ask those that get ARCs to offer reviews on the various online bookstores. If you can’t get ARCs, prepare excerpts for people to take home and read.

Finally – there will be professionals at these conferences, in particular, press people. Make sure to prepare a press kit to be placed in the press area and also have one or two with you at your booth/signing area to distribute. Also make sure to have a good supply of business cards. Vistaprint is a great source for inexpensive business cards.

I hope today’s Tuesday Tip will be of assistance when prepping goodies for your own conferences. Also, although I’ve used the above-mentioned companies and have had positive results, it’s possible that your experience might be different. So please do not hold that against me and be sure to check out any and all companies before entering into any legally binding contract or offer.
