Audio and Party Update

Hello, my lovely readers 🙂

Just a note to let you know that the FB party date has changed from this Saturday, to Saturday July 15th. This is due to a few things, and I apologize for having to push it back, but I promise it’ll be worth the wait!

In other news, the dark cozy mystery I’ve been hinting at has been submitted and I’m hoping to have news in the next month or two. This would be the first book in a trilogy, and I really love the characters and setting. The series takes place in the Isles and West world, but with different characters, different town (but still in Vermont). I don’t want to give say too much right now, but as soon as I have news I will post it!

Audiobook Release Party!

Hello, my awesome readers! I’m here today to announce that I’ll be having a release party for The Damned audiobook on Facebook. I’m very excited about this release, so there will be lots of prizes, a grand prize, and much fun 🙂

Find out the details by clicking on the photo below.

A few words about this experience:

I really thought that this process would be weird, or maybe even a little unpleasant, but I was so very wrong. I have really enjoyed the process of making this audiobook; from choosing the reader, to listening to the chapters as they were uploaded. I will admit that hearing someone else read my book out loud is strange, and far different than when I read the words out loud (especially fight scenes!).

I’ve had plenty of help to walk me through this, since I’ve never done an audiobook before, and I am beyond grateful to all of those involved ❤

The narrator is amazing- she really nailed Tuck’s voice (in my humble opinion). The audio is completed, and I’m listening to the end chapters now. Once that’s done, any changes that need to be made, will be made, and then…we’re done 🙂 The book is on track for release at the end of the month- just in time for the July 4th weekend!

I hope to see you at the release party 😀 More information to come as the steps are completed!

Series Saturday: Patricia Briggs

Welcome to another Series Saturday!

Patricia Briggs is one of my favorite authors, and two of my favorite books are Masques and Wolfsbane~ part of her Sianim Series.  Patty is a wonderful storyteller, and I was immediately drawn into the story by the voice and vivid images her writing brought forth.

Blurb:

After an upbringing of proper behavior and oppressive expectations, Aralorn fled her noble birthright for a life of adventure as a mercenary spy. But her latest mission involves more peril than she ever imagined.

Agents of Sianim have asked her to gather intelligence on the increasingly popular and powerful sorcerer Geoffrey ae’Magi. Soon Aralorn comes to see past the man’s striking charisma—and into a soul as corrupt and black as endless night. And few have the will to resist the sinister might of Geoffrey and his minions.

So Aralorn, aided by her enigmatic companion, Wolf, join the growing rebellion against the ae’Magi. But in a war against an enemy armed with the powers of illusion, how do you know who the true enemy is—or where he will strike next?

Blurb:

For the last ten years, shapeshifting mercenary Aralorn has led a dangerous existence—a far cry from her noble upbringing. Now she must return home under the most unfortunate circumstances. Her father, the Lyon of Lambshold, has passed away. But when Aralorn and her companion Wolf arrive, the combination of their magic uncovers something wonderful yet alarming—he’s not actually dead, but only appears so. Yet a dark mist is also very much alive within him…

The Lyon of Lambshold has been ensorcelled by the ae’Magi, who’s using him as a conduit to finally destroy Aralorn and Wolf. With her father as the pawn, can Aralorn overcome this mysterious mist with her magic? Or will she finally fall to the blackest of magic, losing not only her one true companion, but also her life…

I cannot recommend this series enough for those who love fantasy. You can read sample chapters of both books, plus the other books in the series (that feature different characters), on her website: http://www.patriciabriggs.com/books/
