The big Bitten by Books party for SOPHIA is today. There’s a new interview and I’ll be answering YOUR questions beginning 12:00 noon Central Standard Time. I’ll be around throughout the day and into the night for my international readers, too. I’m up all night anyway, might as well make a party of it, right?
There are some great prizes including a $50 Amazon gift certificate and some autographed books.
Many of you have already RSVP’d, so at least I know I won’t be drinking all by myself!
By the way, ComCast users might have trouble getting to the BBB site. It’s a ComCast problem and apparently affects other sites, too. But if you’re having a problem use THIS PROXY SITE instead. Just enter http://www.bittenbybooks.com.
See you there!

I’d like to say I’ve been busy all week working on DUNCAN, but alas, most of my time has been spent setting up promo events, writing guest blogs and answering interview questions. It takes more hours than you might think. Although I did manage to spend some quality time with Duncan … and Lucas, too. Scenes for Lucas are beginning to pop into my head at odd times. Believe it or not, that’s actually a good sign.
But not to worry, Duncan and I will be spending all of our time together from here on out. Are you jealous? You should be. (heh, heh)
But back to promos, first up … On TUESDAY this week is a brand new interview and book giveaway with Annette over at RomFan Reviews. Drop by, read the interview, ask a question or leave a comment, and you could win a signed copy of either RAJMUND or SOPHIA.
Annette also posted a review of SOPHIA this past week, so check it out.
I have a couple of other things scheduled for later in the week, but I’m confirming the dates before listing them here. I’ll let you know here and on Facebook. You can find me on Facebook by following the tab above or simply searching for D. B. Reynolds. I love new friends.
In other (not good) news, it’s hard to believe, but SOPHIA has yet to appear on Fictionwise. They changed their update schedule sometime in the past year. It’s a bit odd and unpredictable, but I have hopes they’ll include SOPHIA soon. I hate that my Fictionwise readers are having to wait so long. I can tell you for sure the book was uploaded to them at the same time as it was Amazon, which was weeks ago.
SOPHIA has been getting great reviews, though! I’m so grateful to all the readers who have contacted me, letting me know how much they love the story. And, so far, review bloggers like it, too. All that love makes the hard work worthwhile. It also makes the writer very, very happy. (And a happy writer is a productive writer ::cough, Duncan, cough::)
Okay. I’ve spent the evening writing guest blogs, so I’m going to take my last hour tonight (or rather this morning) and spend it alone with Duncan. Me and Duncan. Alone. Just us. In the (mostly) dark.
See you later this week with more promo news.

I’m over at PARANORMAL HAVEN all day today answering questions. Or, I will be once we here on the West Coast (PST) wake up to a new Monday morning. Steph and Athenna of the Haven are in California, too, so we’re a little beyond y’all. There’s a review of SOPHIA, a new interview with yours truly that includes hints for future books, and a book giveaway, so come on by and say Hi.
SOPHIA is kicking a$$ and taking names! She’s even giving RAPHAEL a run for his money and the big guy is NOT pleased! He’s slightly mollified by the knowledge that it’s his wonderful presence driving some of SOPHIA’s sales, however. You may have noticed the vamp’s got a healthy ego. Shocking, but true.
SOPHIA’s now available on Amazon in both Kindle and print format, and on BN.com in print only. My publisher is working on getting our books into Nook format, but we’re not there yet. I’m expecting Fictionwise.com to come on line by the middle of the week, though. They’re usually a week behind Amazon and BN. So, hopefully in a couple of days, I’ll be able to give you the Fictionwise buy link.
I’m also throwing a release party for SOPHIA at Bitten by Books on Friday, April 29st. Another interview, another super giveaway, but I’ll be posting details about that in a couple days.
I’ve recovered from RT at last. What a great party that was … the whole four days. Crazy and exhausting, but one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended. And that means I’m back working on DUNCAN and NO! You can all stop asking! I’m NOT giving any hints. I’m playing this one very close to the vest, as they say. Although I will torment you by saying Duncan is even more wonderful than you know.
I want to thank all of my wonderful readers who’ve e-mailed me and blogged and posted on FB and Amazon about how much they love SOPHIA! You’ve spread the word about my vamps and put them on so many lists. You all are the greatest readers in the world and I appreciate every one of you. I literally couldn’t do this without you.
Okay, I’ve made myself all weepy and happy now. So it’s time to go work on Duncan some more! Yippee!
I’ll see you all soon with more details of parties and promos.

SOPHIA is now available on Amazon (both print and Kindle) and on BN.com (print), plus I figure Fictionwise will pop up this week, so it’s time for her promo tour to begin!
I’m kicking if off with Steph and Athenna at Paranormal Haven, with a brand new Interview and SOPHIA Giveaway.
It’s always fun times at Paranormal Haven, so please join me for Sophia’s entrance into the limelight. The guys are just going to have to move on over!

Yes! Amazon and BN.com got their copies before I did. Hmmm. Hardly seems fair, but okay.
The paperback of SOPHIA is now available on Amazon. They don’t have the two formats linked yet, so you have to look specifically for the paperback.
Or you could just follow THIS LINK!
And, yep, there she is on BN.com, too.
That leaves only Fictionwise.com, but they have a strange update schedule. I’ll let you know when she pops up there, too.
But, yay! SOPHIA is out and available THREE DAYS EARLY!! That’s gotta be some kind of record!

First things first, the lovely SOPHIA is garnering rave reviews from early readers, which means those on Kindle and those who downloaded the PDF from ImaJinn. I’m hopeful the print version will show up on Amazon and BN.com this week, but I’ll keep an eye out and let you know the MINUTE it’s available. And Fictionwise usually runs a week behind, but I’ll keep an eye out there, as well.
In the meantime, I truly appreciate all of the e-mails and posts, both here and on FB and Amazon, telling me how much you loved SOPHIA. It’s a nerve wracking thing to release a new book and it’s such a relief to know my readers love it.
Of course, now everyone wants to know when DUNCAN will be out! I’m taking a few days to bask in the glow of SOPHIA (and catch up on my sleep from RT) and then it’s back to working hard on Duncan’s story, which is already halfway finished. When I do get back to him, it will be pure pleasure, ‘cuz Duncan is MmmMmmGood.
And, of course, RT was this week! The big excitement was picking up my RT Reviewer’s Choice Award for JABRIL. No one warned me I’d be giving an acceptance speech, so I had to come up with something on the fly. But I managed not to fall down on the way to or from the stage, so it’s all good. And the award is beautiful, isn’t it?
I’ve posted a few more pictures on my Facebook page. I didn’t take that many. I was too busy looking at stuff and finding my way around. There were so many fantastic panels and books, books everywhere!!
And it was so great to meet in person so many people I “speak” with on-line all the time, including Adrian Phoenix, D. P. Lyle and Rachel Caine, to name a few, along with Mertianna Georgia, who’s a new ImaJinn author. And I was surprised at how many of my readers were there, including Mary (aka Amy) who won the name a bar contest for SOPHIA, and so many others—from all over the world, especially from Down Under!!—who made a point of coming up and telling me how much they loved the books! It made my week!!
I’m sure there’s more I want to say, and probably stuff I’m SUPPOSED to cover this week, but I’m still recovering from four days of non-stop RT. I slept 10 hours when I got home and I’m looking forward to sleeping some more tonight. By tomorrow night, though, I’ll be back on schedule and working hard.
So, see you all next week, if not sooner. Hopefully I’ll have word of the SOPHIA print version before then. Fingers crossed!
April 5, 2011
Yep, SOPHIA has hit Amazon’s Kindle store. I pretty much expected this … that the book would be available in Kindle almost right away. The print books should be available by the end of next week. I’ll keep on eye out for those and for BN.com and Fictionwise.
Yay! SOPHIA IS HERE!!!
