Bewitching Book Tours Hot Holiday Giveaway

Bewitching Book Tours organized a holiday giveaway, which includes a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch (or equivalent value Amazon Gift Card), three prize packs full of fun swag, and TONS of ebooks, which are all listed below. I’m not offering an ebook because I currently only do print giveaways, but I did contribute to the big prize and I wanted to let you all know about the giveaway because it’s a great opportunity to be introduced to some new authors… and, of course, possibly win a new Kindle Fire — for yourself or to give as a gift.

Hope everyone is having a great week. I’m in the midst of revisions for WHITE HEART OF JUSTICE, which are going well. On the horizon? The holidays, finishing up a wonderfully dark and romantic short story I’ve been working on as well as a proposal for a new (totally awesome) series. 😀

Happy Thursday and Good Luck with the Holiday Giveaway!

Fiery Edge of Steel Blog Tour Winners & Thank You

The Fiery Edge of Steel blog tour was fun! With the help of the blog tour hosts, I shared excerpts from Chapter One, my main character participated in a Supernatural Smackdown, I talked about why I like writing fantasy, reviews, and day trips for your muse. I shared who I thought would make a great Noon, Ari, and Rafe if the books were made into movies, told everyone my thoughts on love triangles, and even wrote some flash fiction. There were a lot of other great posts and interviews. If you missed any of them and are interested in checking them out, check out the links on my Fiery Edge of Steel blog tour page.

If you enjoyed Fiery Edge of Steel,

please be Noon’s “ambassador” and help spread the word about the series

1. Talk it up! Tell everyone. Word of mouth continues to be the best way to support a book or its author. If you liked the book and recommend it to just one other person — that is a huge help!

2. Give it an honest and fair review on Amazon, Goodreads, and/or wherever you hang out online. This will help readers who have similar reading tastes find it. (Your review doesn’t have to be long. A sentence or two can make a big difference in helping other readers discover the series.)

Tour-Wide Winners and Many Thanks

Robin M. and Kristia M. won the prize packs I was giving away (copies of both books and a $10 eGC). I am truly thankful to everyone who participated in the tour by sharing links, commenting, tweeting, posting status updates, etc.

Thank you to each and every one of you who purchased and/or read Fiery Edge of Steel. Your support is much appreciated! No one can be an author without an audience. *Your* interest is what keeps the series going! 😀

Roxanne Rhoads at Bewitching Book Tours, who helped me to organize, schedule, and promote this tour, gets a special thanks. She did a fantastic job of rounding up interested bloggers, making sure they had all the necessary information for posts, and getting the word out about the tour. She also ran the tour-wide contests, which I was grateful for. I also want to thank my publisher, Penguin/Ace, for supplying the ARCs that I gave away during the first part of the tour and my editor and publicist who also helped to get the word out about some of the posts.

Thank you to all of the book bloggers who hosted me on their sites, posted promotional materials, and/or reviewed Fiery Edge of Steel. Below is a list of Bewitching Book Tours blog tour participants, but my thanks goes out to EVERYONE who took the time to check out the book, recommend it, write a review, and/or rate it on Goodreads and/or Amazon. Likely you are doing the same thing for other authors and this helps keep our shared passion (books!) alive.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Udvar-Hazy “Become a Pilot” Day, More Interview Links, and Updates

Summer has officially started but lots of things are winding down with me. The Bewitching Book Tours virtual book tour that I’m doing to help spread the word about Fiery Edge of Steel‘s release will be ending next week. Friday, June 28th, will be the last spotlight. After that, winners of the blog tour goodies will be announced. So there are a few more chances to put your name in for a chance to win copies of Dark Light of Day, Fiery Edge of Steel, and a $10 eGift Certificate to a bookstore of the winner’s choice.

Now would be a great time to mention how thankful I am to everyone who has participated in the tour or who has helped to put the word out about the Noon Onyx series. Sending out a big, heartfelt THANK YOU to all of the blog hosts, interviewers, readers, reviewers, and commenters! I’m grateful for all of the tweets, status updates, shares, spotlights, and reviews. It’s been a lot of fun meeting everyone online and hearing readers’ reactions to Fiery Edge of Steel. To all of you who told me know how much you’ve enjoyed the series or how much you love the books, the world, and/or the characters, you are all fantastic and amazing. I appreciate the support!

Here’s a run down of where I’ve been lately:

Lissette E. Manning (I discuss what makes Noon such a different character, how she feels about being descended from Lucifer’s warlords, and the fact that her refusal to “shoot first and ask questions later” makes her an outsider with her peers)

Vicky at Deal Sharing Aunt (Top three things to know about Dark Light of Day and how members of the Host use waning magic to control demons)

Friday Nights Live Radio Interview with Bewitching Book Tours Radio (30 minute interview with host Kriss Morton from Cabin Goddess. We talk about ALL KINDS OF STUFF. 😀 )

What’s up for next week and later this summer?

Monday, I’ll be guest blogging at the Fantasy, Futuristic, and Paranormal Chapter of RWA. I’ll be talking about “Road Trips for Your Muse.” On Tuesday and Thursday, I’ll host the last two guests in my Spring Into Summer Romance guest blog series. Then on Friday, I’ll be at Paranormal Haven for their “Why Didn’t I Think of That?!?!” summer feature.

*AND* I’m also participating in Bewitching Book Tours Sizzling Summer Giveaway and NA Alley’s NAmazing Adventure. More details on those two events to come!

Udvar-Hazy Center’s

“Become a Pilot” Family Day

Last Saturday, our family went down to the Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia for its “Become a Pilot” Family Day and Aviation Display. It was Father’s Day weekend and the air and space museum was packed with dads and aviation enthusiasts, my husband being one of them. My girls enjoyed climbing into some of the planes and experimental aircraft that were on display, as well as flying in the simulators. My favorite part was seeing space shuttle Discovery. Pretty darn amazing!

Winners: “Fiery Edge of Steel” Cover Reveal Giveaways

Hi everyone, since I’m in the midst of wrapping up revisions/edits for Fiery Edge of Steel, this is just a quick post to let everyone know who the winners of the cover reveal giveaways were. (Bewitching Book Tours randomly selects the winners from the Rafflecopter entries).

With almost 1,000 entries, there were lots of people who participated! I’m grateful to everyone who shared the cover and helped me to spread the word about Fiery Edge of Steel, the next book in the Noon Onyx series, which is due to be released in May 2013. For those of you who like contests and giveaways, there will probably be one or two (possibly more) during my New Year, New Adult Book Blast, which starts in January. In between now and then, I’m going to try to post some other miscellaneous, fun posts, depending on what I have time for.

Here are two other things I’ve been up to lately:

I hope everyone is enjoying December and the holiday season!

Giveaway Winners

  • Autographed hardcover copy of J.D. Robb’s DELUSION IN DEATH – Natasha D.

Dark Light of Day Blog Tour Prize Winners & Wrap Up

By now, I’m hoping you know more about Dark Light of Day than you did two months ago. If you’ve been following along on the tour, you know that there were over a dozen guest blog posts focusing on various aspects of DLOD such as characters, settings, and inspirations. I also posted links to numerous interviews where I discussed Noon Onyx or Dark Light of Day.

Still undecided about whether Dark Light of Day is the right choice for you?

Besides the premise, this information may help you. Dark Light of Day would appeal to readers who like urban fantasy set in a richly detailed world told in a youthful, first person voice. The book would appeal to readers who like mixed genre stories. DLOD has elements of fantasy, romance, mystery, legal fiction, post-apocalyptic fiction, even new adult.

If you are still on the fence about whether this book is the right choice for you, I have a few samplers left. If you live in the U.S., you can use my contact page to request one. If you read the first few chapters, it will give you a good idea of whether you would like it (although, of course, many of the book’s best parts occur later ;-)). What do you have to lose? It’s FREE! 😀

Already a fan of Dark Light of Day? Please help get the word out to a larger crowd by doing the following:

1. Talk it up! Tell everyone. Word of mouth continues to be the best way to support a book or its author. If you liked the book and recommend it to just one other person — that is immensely helpful to me!

2. Give it an honest and fair review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Goodreads. This will help readers who have similar reading tastes find it. (Your review doesn’t have to be long. A sentence or two can make a big impact in how the book is found online.)

3. If you genuinely liked it, “like” it on Amazon and take a few moments to agree with the search tags (or create some of your own). This will help other readers find it more easily on Amazon.

For more of my thoughts on the Dark Light of Day tour see my last post, “Tales from the Cyber Road.”

Thank You to Everyone Who Participated in the DLOD Blog Tour!

Roxanne Rhoads at Bewitching Book Tours helped me to organize, schedule, and promote this tour. She did a fantastic job of rounding up interested bloggers, making sure they had all the necessary information for posts, and getting the word out about the tour. She also ran the tour-wide contests, which I was grateful for. She sent me the names of the winners today and they are listed below. I also want to thank my publisher, Penguin, for supplying the Ace/Roc samplers that I gave away at each stop and my editor and publicist who also helped to get the word out about some of the posts.

Finally, I want to thank all of the book bloggers and reviewers who hosted me on their sites, posted promotional materials, and/or reviewed Dark Light of Day. Below is a list of blog tour participants, but my thanks goes out to EVERYONE who took the time to check out Dark Light of Day, recommend it, write a review, and/or “like” it on Amazon. Likely you are doing the same thing for other authors and this helps keep our shared passion (books!) alive.

Tour-Wide Winners!

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest. I very much appreciated all of the comments, tweets, status updates, follows, adds, links and likes. 😀

Here are the winners:

I’ll be e-mailing everyone tonight to collect eGC choices and U.S. mailing addresses so I can send out the prizes!

What’s Next?

I’m currently working on the third Noon Onyx book. And I’ll be doing some future posts on topics unrelated to DLOD. This Saturday, I’m wrapping up my 2012 Fall Into Winter Darkness Book Blast with an interview of Damien Walters Grintalis, author of the horror novel INK due out from Samhain on 12-4-12. And Roxanne Rhoads is scheduling a cover reveal for Noon Onyx book #2 on December 5th. (If you are interested in participating in the one day cover reveal, please contact Roxanne at Bewitching Book Tours). Hope everyone is having a great week!

Blog Tour for Dark Light of Day Starts Today!

Noon Onyx Book #1 Blog Tour

I’m over at P.W. Creighton’s place discussing how writers use folklore and myths as inspirations for their stories. I also talk a bit about the myriad sources of inspiration for Dark Light of Day. Do you use myth as inspiration for your writing? If so, which ones? Do you like stories inspired by folktales? If so, what are some of your favorites? Stop by and tell me if you love ABC’s Once Upon A Time or if you’ve read Meg Cabot’s Abandon or share some of your own reading and watching recommendations.

Tour prizes!

Here are the goodies I’m giving away during and after the Dark Light of Day tour:

(U.S. only due to mailing costs).
  • $10 eGift Card: Either Amazon or Barnes & Noble $10 eGift Card, winner’s choice, to be drawn at random from all blog tour commenters.
