Monday Author Shout Out Day

It is Monday, the first of the week again, and time to see what my writer friends have coming out either last week, or this week. Be sure to give us a blurb and a link to where we can buy your novel.

We will have a lot of readers coming by in a few days and we want them to buy our books. And to be honest, I know they are looking for a great read. I hear it all of the time.

This week, I have the honor of announcing that I have a novel being released tomorrow. A TIME FOR LOVE is a full length romantic thriller which involves a complicated land deal that triggers a triple romance. While I usually can complete a novel in a couple of months, this one was 13 years in the making.

It is available for pre-order at an initial discount of 15% until December 20th, More details are on my Publisher's site. I hope you take a look at A TIME FOR LOVE.

Now, back to my writing friends. Tell us what you are releasing, and where we can find it. We would all love to read any details you can share about your novel.

  5. The Last Awakening by Rachel Firasek Released Dec 6th.

    For three hundred years, Arabella’s life has been one meaningless death after another. In a cruel twist of fate, Osiris–god of the Underworld–gifts the phoenix her mortality and returns her voodoo magic. If she fails to harness her wayward magic and save a man worthy of a second chance, she’ll forfeit her power and her soul–forever.

    Ex-soldier Greyson Meadows desperately wants to be freed from the nightmares and guilt that haunt him after the tragedy that brought him and Ari together. Confronted by the waif of a woman who forces him to face his worst fears, he resists, fighting the need to keep his personal demons hidden instead of setting them free.

    When Ari becomes the target of her own magical blunder, it’s not just her life in danger, but now the one of the man she loves.

So she decided to spend her life on the side of law enforcement. She is still doing great things.

He just has to figure out what that would be. He decides to look into it and quickly discovers that she may look like his fiancé but she is independent and don’t take any crap. It doesn’t take long for her to remind him that he has a heart and what it feels like when it is breaking. When his one hundred year nemesis shows up in Miami and tries to force Ailis to join him, he realizes that her powers are worth something to even the worst of his kind. He pledges to protect her from any danger as long as he is still breathing. If those trying to keep her from fulfilling her destiny have anything to do about it, that won’t be long at all.

  7. DRAGON IN THE MIST is a Loch Ness romance set near Urquhart Castle in Scotland. Americans have a great love for all things Scottish, and I married a man of Scottish descent. Writing romance came naturally married to a man in a kilt! My heroine is The Loch Ness Monster in human form who searches for love. My hero is a visiting American scientist. Read the blurb and sample pages at Amazon ($2.99) or for NOOK

  12. If I may, I'd like to talk about my short story that was published this Holiday Time last year by Whispers Publishing...UNWRAPPING CHRIS is a contemporary MILITARY romance that happens on a southern American army base. It is a cheap, quick read but, more importantly, was created from my personal visit to an army base while my son was in training to become a drill sergeant. He even helped me with the military terminology, and the book is dedicated to him and others who serve. Try it! Available at Amazon


  13. I'll shout a few out, though it will be a few days yet :)

    Later this week, I will be releasing the second in my indie mystery series, ONCE BURNED (the first book is PAST TENSE). Here is the blurb for ONCE BURNED:

    Tarot-medium Sophie Turner is back, and Boston is burning down around her as a string of serial arsons takes hold of the city. Her personal life isn’t faring much better as Sophie makes some disturbing – and potentially dangerous – discoveries about her friends that undermine her trust in those closest to her. Worse, after suffering a psychic dry spell, the newspapers are speculating that she’s a scam artist.

    When a graduate student dies in one of the fires, Sophie spots a ghost at the crime scene. She thinks the spirit is weak, but finds out differently as the ghost gets inside her head, luring her into its past life. Sophie can only rely on herself, her ghost, and her gift to find the arsonist even as she becomes the killer’s target.

    Next week, on Dec 20, you can pick up my brand new Blaze, Straight to the Heart! And you can pre-order, now, as well :)

  17. My charming, funny Texas romance released on Kindle last week and should be avail. on Nook any minute now. Featuring a big-hearted and impulsive heroine, a hero who needs to live down a bad reputation, and loads of adventure and romance, this book is a great gift for a female friend. And it was a heck of a lot of fun to write.

  18. I just put up a brand new ebook on Amazon.
    MASTER OF PARADISE is a Plantation novel; a Southern family saga. It has never been published before.

Eventually, he builds a magnificent house known as Paradise Plantation. He falls in love with the daughter of his neighbor, but when Civil War threatens, circumstances force Nicholas to accept a marriage in name only. The sexual tension is stretched to breaking point as the would-be lovers are torn between honor or surrendering to the love and longing in their hearts.
