Monday Author Shout Out Day

I love this day of the week. It will be, as always, good to see what everyone has coming out. If you are an author and have a book which came out last week or coming out this one, please let us know about it. Give us a blurb that makes us want to rush to buy it. Be sure to give us the link where we can buy it.

This week, I also get to announce that I have a new novel coming out. A TIME FOR LOVE is coming out soon, and maybe available for pre-sale today or tomorrow. Here is the link to my author page where you will see it. You can also click on notifications there and you will get a special e-mail. My author page link is

When Brenda Denton’s boss J. L. Brighton, an Atlanta land developer who disappears while flying his small plane on a business trip, her world is torn apart. She has been secretly in love with J. L. for years. It is her hidden love that drives the rescue efforts in the hope to find him alive before an assassin finishes the job and denies her the chance to confess her love.
The personal, romantic and business lives of J. L.’s three closest friends, a real estate agent, a stock broker and an insurance agent collide as they join rescue efforts to find their friend. While they all are experts in their professional fields, their private lives hold deep secrets.
As the sexual tensions escalate and new love interests are formed, nerves are stretched and hearts are opened. This story of a triple romance creates unusual sexual triangles that evolve and intensify.

Okay, enough about me, now tell me what you have coming out. We have a lot of readers coming by later.

  1. Oooh, that's a raunchy cover! lol

    My last book came out last December, but when my next is ready I'll be popping back and arm-wrestle, I mean, ASK, you to put my book up on your blog. :)

  2. Thanks Louise, I hope to do this every Monday for a long time. Be sure to support the other authors and tell your writing friends of this free offer to promote their books.


  3. My latest book, Dance with Evil, came out last week Friday.

    When a black magic cult unwittingly draws evil incarnate to Earth’s dimension, it sets off a chain of events that play out over a period of two years before most of those involved even realise they’re being toyed with.

    Of those the creature plays mind games with, only one, Joey de Villiers, is aware of what’s happening, driving him to contact the others: ex-cop turned private investigator Gabe Rylan and his ex-girlfriend, exposé writer Rachael Timberson.

    Only Zalcon, a bounty hunter from another dimension, can stop the monster, but he cannot do it alone. However, will the three humans believe Zalcon is a friend, and if so, are they able to assist with Gabe focussed on his police partner’s death of two years ago, Rachael dealing with a stalker and Joey having a kidnap victim in his home?

    It’s anyone’s guess if Gabe, Rachael and Joey can get past their personal situations and work together to overcome their fear and rid Earth of the evil called Tailen.

    Dance with Evil is coming soon to Barnes&Noble, and can be purchased from Smashwords -

  4. Vanessa, that sounds very interesting. Good luck on it.


  5. I think you're doing a fantastic thing here! If you ever need to collaborate on things like this, I'd be honoured to be a part of it.

  6. Thanks, Beth! I'm glad you think it's interesting :-)

  7. Love your cover! I'm not much of a romance reader, but yours sounds like a thriller romance, which is right up my alley!

  8. My name is Ric Bern and my very first work was released this past October by Breathless Press. It is called "Crimson & Steel." It is based in the ancient Roman province of Noricum (modern Austria) and is the account of a pair of slave girls. One is an eastern pleasure servant, used to fine living. She seeks to be purchased by a wealthy master who can care for her. The other is a young lovely of Germanic descent who catches the eye of the local military commander. You can check out a sample page on Breathless Press or The second installment will be available in about a month. Thanks for letting me tell you about it!. Ric.

  9. Yes, mine is a romantic thriller, and I think you will love it.

    Ric, be sure to come back when it is released.

    Now who has a good Christmas novel?

  10. I have two actually :-)

    First one is Wishful Thinking (my take on Rumpelstiltskin) releasing today.

    Blurb: Believing may be seeing but confidence can change impossible situations.

    Plus-sized Jovie Andrews is constantly passed over for promotions and she feels invisible. Things only get worse when her boss, thinking he can impress the owner of their company, tells everyone that she can change old contracts into gold bars. If Jovie thought her life was bad before, she had no idea how horrible it could be until she finds herself in a room with stacks of outdated contracts she's expected to miraculously transform.

    As she pours a cup of tea, she rubs at a stain on the creamer pot, and a magical being, Rand, appears, saying he’ll help her with her troubles--for a price each time. Skeptical yet curious about the exotically sexy man, she agrees, but she’s not prepared for the erotic things he does to her as reward. Over the course of her trials, he teaches her how worthy of good things she really is.

    Once the tasks are completed, and freed of Rand's help, Jovie is given an ultimatum: find out his full name or exchange her life for Rand’s; otherwise, he’ll be lost for all eternity and she'll be trapped in the prison he came from.

    You can get it now on Amazon and All Romance e-books. Will be available from Liquid Silver Books tonight http://www.liquidsilverbooks.

    And Off The List (a sexy Christmas short) releasing Wednesday.

    Blurb: She wants off the Nice List. He owns the Naughty List. Christmas Eve has never been so sexy.

    Jack, the outcast cousin of the Claus family, has one job within the Realm of Christmas. He’s in charge of the Naughty List. Distributing coal, emptying stockings, returning gifts, that’s his bag—but it does have its perks. Some of the women on the List wait up for him on December 24th and he makes sure to deck their halls with every visit.

    Cadence Harris did everything right in her life. Played by the rules, dated the “good” boys, said the right things, worked at the right job. But this year for Christmas, she wants something entirely different. She wants off the Nice List and in a big way. Never in her wildest dreams can she imagine what’s in store when Jack pays her an accidental visit.

    The night will prove that Santa always delivers.

    Will be at all e-book outlets and at the publisher Purple Sword Publications

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  11. Hi Beth. I'm an Irish author and my first novel -- Gabriel's Gate -- has just been published and is quite possibly the first novel to come out of the recession. It's a dark, biting, thriller about a group of young people going back to live off the land on a commune of sorts. It's now on ebook also and available on Amazon.
    You can read extracts on:

    Okay, ready? Here comes the promo for...CRIME WAVE IN A CORSET, A Christmas Steampunk Romance Novella, by Stacy Gail (that's me! :P)

    Published by Carina Press

    Release Date: December 5th (Omigod, that TODAY!)
    * * *

    Library Journal—“ Gail’s Crime Wave stands out!”

    Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer—“ My favorite tale is Stacy Gail’s Crime Wave in a Corset. I adore the spunky, intelligent wit of Cornelia. The chemistry between her and Roderick is delightful. The plot was exciting and I would love to read a full length version of this story.”

    NYT Best-selling author, Shannon Stacey—“I got to read an advance copy of this story and it’s one of my favorite reads of 2011...The plot was fascinating, the holiday theme woven in seamlessly and the ending...Once I got about 3/4 through, my house could have been on fire and the firefighters would have had to carry me out still reading because I never looked up from the Kindle.” Goodreads review
    * * *

    Roderick Coddington is on a mission to make Cornelia Peabody pay. After identifying her as the thief who stole a priceless Faberge egg from his dying sister, he finds her and shackles a deadly timepiece to her arm. If she doesn’t return the egg by Christmas morning, she will die.

    Normally seven days is more than enough time for Cornelia to carry out the perfect crime, but Roderick’s intrusion into her life is beyond distracting. He challenges her mind, and ignites her body with desire she’s never felt before. But worst of all, he threatens the independence she values above all else…

    As Roderick spends time with Cornelia, he realizes there’s a lonely soul hidden beneath her beautiful but criminal veneer. Falling for a thief wasn’t part of Roderick’s plan, but plans can change and he has no intention of letting another priceless treasure get away from him.
