Well, to start off, how about you vote for On Demon Wings in the 2012 GoodReads Awards. It’s such a freaking honor to be nominated (and I’m against Dean Koontz, omg) that I’m glowing just from that. But hey, wouldn’t it be cool if my book actually made it to the finals? I would be dancing on the moon!
So, what you need to do is go here and VOTE for On Demon Wings as the Best Horror of 2012.
Many people have asked why the other books aren’t nominated, but ODW was the only full-length EIT book released in 2012. Darkhouse — Lying Season were all released last year, if you can believe it (yup, released 4 books in one year!).
Anyhoo, yes, vote and I’ll reward you with a scene. I’ll decide on three possible scenes I could write for you. You vote on which one I should write. And I’ll release it on the website for free. BUT.…and this is a big butt (much like my own)…I need to get to the finals first. Even if I don’t win the award, if I am a finalist, then you guys win the scene! Deal?
So if you’ve already voted, get your friends and family to vote! Get on GoodReads and get people excited! I think Dex and Perry deserve a wee bit of recognition these days and I would be honored if they could get it.
Once again, go HERE and pick On Demon Wings — one vote for that is a vote for all EIT books
OH and I’m not done here, not by a long shot. I finally have a release date for Into the Hollow. Thursday, November 15th, the book will be live on Amazon and Smashwords. Sorry, Nook and Kobo users, this may take months for you (take it up with B&N) but you can always get your epub copy from Smashwords.
OH and OH…OH OH!
Here’s a little teaser for you
INTO THE HOLLOW — A SNIPPET — UNEDITED
“Up you go, drunky,” he said affectionately. He grabbed my arms and pulled me up. My feet failed – I don’t know where they went – and I fell straight into his chest. Damn. I had forgotten how hard it was. He tightened his arms around me and, damn, I had forgotten how hard they were too.
I was standing, no, leaning at angle, unwilling to help myself. I raised up my head so that my face was peering at his, inches away, and smiled. “Thank you for catching me.”
“Will you be OK?” Rigby asked Dex. Dex nodded without taking his amused eyes off of mine.
“I’ve got her,” he said. I kept smiling.
He raised me up easily and plunked me on my feet like he was stacking a chair. Then he put his arm around me, holding me to him, and led me to our room.
“Good night,” he told the guys over his shoulder.
They mumbled something I couldn’t hear and soon I was in the pitch black bedroom. Dex let go of me to close the door and I began to sway to the side. Suddenly he was there, strong hands on me again, and leading me to the bed.
“Here, sit down,” he said placing me on it. He began to take off my boots.
I didn’t want to sit up so I leaned back until I was flat on the bed. The room began to spin a bit.
“It’s dark in here and spinny,” I muttered as he removed one boot. “Sorry if my feet stink.”
“I’ve dealt with worse,” he said and quickly removed the other. I was left alone for a few seconds while he did something in the corner. Then light glowed behind my closed lids. I opened them. He had gotten the kerosene lamp going.
His face appeared above me as he leaned over. “How are you feeling?”
“Good,” I grinned. “Take off your shirt.”
He laughed. “Whoa, okay. You’re feeling fine, that’s for sure.”
“How about your pants?”
His smile twisted. “Oh Perry. You should be careful of what you ask of me.”
I reached up and grabbed his head and pulled him down toward me. My body was being pumped full of alcohol and the adrenaline of being scared earlier and the charged concept of sleeping with him. Of being naked with him. Of having sex in front of the fireplace. It swirled around in my veins, making me feel deliciously heavy inside and at the same time making me crave him, like I was a space that needed filling.
My fingers buried themselves in his hair, wrapping around the thick strands and holding on tight. I brought his anxious face down to mine and whispered, “You’re going to have to take my clothes off then.”
LAST BUT NOT LEAST = Because all EIT books were slashed to 99 cents last month, I’m doing the same for The Devil’s Metal this month on Amazon — or at last until Into the Hollow is released. It’s only fair! So if you haven’t snatched up the book, get on it while you still can at this super duper low price! And remember, The Devil’s Reprise (#2) comes out in March/April so you don’t have too long to wait to get more sexy Sage and Dawn times.
