Stealth Giveaway

For a limited time, I’m giving away BETRAYED BY TRUST on Amazon for your Kindle. It’s Free, and just for BBT500x800my fans. I’m not advertising it anywhere.

BETRAYED BY TRUST is a romantic paranormal suspense novel, and part of the Celestial Affairs universe. It takes place back in 1979 in the U.S., and if you were alive and aware back then, you may recognize some of the historical references. Gideon, Jared’s Celestial friend  in LIGHTBRINGER, makes an appearance.

Speaking of Gideon, a while ago I said his and Ana’s story, GUARDIAN, would be released in October. Sadly, that’s not going to happen. My goal is always to give you a rich and rewarding reading experience, and GUARDIAN just isn’t there yet. So, with many apologies, I’m pushing back the release of Gideon’s story.

In the meantime, however, you can get a glimpse of Gideon’s past in BETRAYED BY TRUST. Click or tap through and get your FREE copy today and share this post with your friends. And please share your opinion about the book on Amazon. Reviews really do help readers find books they’ll enjoy, and to be honest, they help me, too. The more reviews a book has, the more visibility it gets. Your help is much appreciated!

BTW, if you subscribed to my newsletter, you would have known about this giveaway yesterday. You can get a free story and sign up for my occasional newsletter by tapping HERE. And a big thank you to subscriber Cathie, who took the time to write me when she had trouble finding BBT. I hadn’t included links for my international fans. If you live outside the US, you can get your FREE copy of BBT here: UK / CA / AU / DEIN

Happy Reading!

Happy Labor Day! And a Sale!

I don’t go to the mall much anymore. Mostly I go to meet a friend for lunch and then take a walk in blessed air-conditioned comfort. (Hey, when it’s 100 degrees outside, that means something!)

So, when I was at Tucson Mall the other day, I was surprised to see the Halloween decorations up already. I shouldn’t have been. Labor Day weekend is not only the last hurrah of summer, but the unofficial beginning of the dreaded Holiday Season when retailers exhort you ever more forcefully to part with the cash your labors have earned.

Some people really love shopping, and are good at it. I’m not one of them. So inBBT500x800 case you’re like me, and would rather curl up with a good book this weekend, I’ve put BETRAYED BY TRUST on sale for only 99 cents though Sunday. It’s a fast-paced thriller with paranormal elements, a love story, and you don’t even have to brave the mall to get it!

If you do decide to pick up a copy of BETRAYED BY TRUST (or any of my other books), I encourage you to leave a review. Your honest opinions help other readers find books they’ll like.

Would you like to be the first to know about sales like this, or when I release a new book?  Sign up for my occasional newsletter. (I won’t choke your inbox. I’ll only be sending you emails when I actually have something to announce.)

Happy reading!

All Treats, No Tricks!

Happy Halloween!

I’ve always loved Halloween, and in honor of the holiday I have three treats to share: a new novel, a short story, and a collection.

My new novel, BETRAYED BY TRUST is available on Amazon in both Kindle and BBT500x800paper formats. It’s set in the same universe as LIGHTBRINGER, in 1979. It will be available at a special low price for a limited time.

Here’s a little bit about BETRAYED BY TRUST:

January, 1979. The Vietnam war is over, the oil embargo and long gas lines a bad memory, and Three Mile Island is just a power plant that few have ever heard of.

Marianne Benton works for the Trust, a secretive organization guarding against abuses of paranormal power. Her next assignment: rescue an Elemental Spirit from slavery–by seducing the heir to an occult dynasty.

As a former Green Beret, Dan Collier knows how to follow orders. His assignment: help Marianne sleep with another man. After that: keep her alive.

Falling in love is optional.

ME600x900My second treat is a Vinlanders’s Saga short story: On a Midsummer’s Eve. Set in the same world as DANGEROUS TALENTS and FORBIDDEN TALENTS, On a Midsummer’s Eve tells the story of a Fey-marked woman and her encounter with Lord Fender on a summer’s eve.

The third treat is a collection of DANGEROUS TALENTS, TC600x900FORBIDDEN TALENTS, and On a Midsummer’s Eve. If you haven’t read the Vinlanders’ Saga books yet, you can now buy them together for one low price.

If you’d like to be among the first to know about my next release, and get in on some of the behind the scenes info on the characters, be sure to sign up for my newsletter.

And if you have time, please leave a review. Sharing what you think about the books you read helps other readers to find stories they’ll enjoy.

I’m Back!

I’ve been busy these last few months, and this fall will see a flurry of activity.

  • This month VEILED MIRROR will be re-released as a Castle Rock book with a new cover and some minor revisions.
  • Next month BETRAYED BY TRUST will debut. It takes place in the same universe as LIGHTBRINGER  in 1979. It’s not exactly a prequel, but you will get to see Gideon again.
  • I have the sequel, SEDUCED BY TRUST, outlined, and I already have a cover for it, but first–
  • I’ll be writing a novella set in the Vinlanders’ Saga universe. It’s working title is DEBTS and I already have a cover for it too.
  • After that, I promise to get to work on Gideon’s story, GUARDIAN.

Today I’m revealing a new cover for DANGEROUS TALENTS. I think Jaycee DeLorenzo of Sweet ‘n’ Spicy Designs has done a fabulous job. I’d love to hear what you think of it.

Which Covers Attract Readers?

It’s past time for me to contact an artist to do the cover for BETRAYED BY TRUST. This story takes place in the Celestial Affairs universe. Here’s a teaser:

It’s January, 1979. The Vietnam war is over. The oil embargo and long gas lines a bad memory. And Three Mile Island is just a Pennsylvanian power plant that no one has ever heard of.

Marianne Benton works for the Trust, a secretive organization guarding against abuses of occult power. Marianne’s assignment, rescue an Elemental Spirit from slavery — by seducing the heir to a corporate dynasty.

Dan Collier is a former Green Beret. His assignment: keep Marianne alive — and give her baby his name. Falling in love is optional.

There’s a lot of talk about what works as a cover for digital books. I have some definite opinions. A cover should be easy to see in thumbnail size, have a clear image, and easy to read fonts. But I’m not sure what images I want on the cover of this book. So I’m asking you: what would you like to see on the cover? What would attract your attention if you saw it among the other “also boughts”and make you click through to read the product description, or buy with one click? Are there covers you think are spectacular? Please share your thoughts.

Back At Work: BETRAYED BY TRUST

After some unexpected Life Events I’m back at work revising my next release, BETRAYED BY TRUST.  For those of you who have been waiting for another Celestial Affairs novel, you’ll be happy to know that Gideon plays a role in this book. It takes place in 1979, and although it isn’t exactly a prequel to LIGHTBRINGER, it does tie into the Celestial Affairs story arc.

Here’s a teaser:

It’s January, 1979. The Vietnam war is over. The oil embargo and long gas lines a bad memory. And Three Mile Island is just a Pennsylvanian power plant that no one has ever heard of.
