I’m guest blogging this week at Paranormal Haven, talking about why I write about vampires. There’s a RAJMUND giveaway as part of my guesting, so you should check it out HERE.

And for those of you who were turned off by Siren’s “strandbucks” requirement for HEART OF THE WOLF–and I was pretty surprised by that myself–Amazon is now offering my werewolf e-novella in their Kindle store for immediate download and no minimums! HERE’s the link to Amazon’s Kindle store.

Speaking of Amazon, they’ve finally dropped their price to match BN.com (partly, I’m sure, because I reported the lower price – LOL) although they still haven’t managed to put up the cover on search yet. Sheesh. But at least the price is up to date! RAJMUND ON AMAZON.

And finally, don’t forget to drop in at Blog Faery’s Battle of the Sexies and VOTE FOR RAPHAEL! The voting link is in the right column, Battle of the Sexies, Vote Here. Click the banner and it will take you to the ballot. Cyn’s not on the Alpha Female ballot, but Raphael is up for Alpha Male. So VOTE NOW!

PhotobucketDon’t forget to drop by TODAY, May 26th, at the 9 Days of Darkness Event. There’s a new (and glowing) review of RAPHAEL, a new interview and I’ll be there answering questions between 10 am and 4 pm PST, and giving away a signed copy of one of my books (winner’s choice.)

See you there!

PS And be sure and drop by TOMORROW when ADRIAN PHOENIX will be the featured author for the 9 Days of Darkness Event.

I’m in excellent company over at Demon Lovers Blog this week! It’s 9 Days of Darkness with a different author every day! I’ll be there on Wednesday, May 26th. There’s a new interview, a review of Raphael, and I’ll be on station between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm PST to take questions. I’ll be checking in all day and all week, but during those hours on Wednesday, I will be sitting right here at my computer, ready to talk. As usual, I’ll be giving away an autographed book. The promo says it’s Raphael, but if the winner wants one of the other books, that’s fine with me.

I’m the lead-in for Adrian Phoenix, by the way. Not bad, huh? Adrian will be there on Thursday, the 27th, and she’s giving away a whole set of her Maker’s Song books.

So plan on dropping by BOTH days to say hello. Or, heck, drop by all nine days!

And, of course, as promised, if you look above you’ll see Vampire Vignette #1 is making its rerun appearance for the next two weeks. Back by popular demand. LOL

For me, it’s been another week of revisions. I received the copy edit/revisions on my werewolf e-novella, Heart of the Wolf, this week, so I’ve been working on that. And I expect to receive the copy edit/revisions on Rajmund any day now. In the meantime, I’m writing away on Sophia (book 4) and I’m more than halfway home on that one, too.

And when I’m not doing those, I’m doing some research on a new series. I’ll still be doing my vampires, and hopefully, my werewolves, too, but I’m looking for something new. I don’t want to give anything away yet, but I’m kind of excited. And as long as I’m researching a new series, is there any particular paranormal you all would like to see more written about?

Okay, I’m going to do the help part first, because it all comes together in the contest part. As I posted a couple of weeks ago, my werewolf novella HEART OF THE WOLF will be e-published in July. I’m very excited about this, because I LOVE my werewolf characters and hope to write more with them. Anyway, the publisher wants me to come up with several questions/answers (essentially interviewing myself) to go along with my author listing on their web site, and they don’t want the same ol’, same ol’ questions.

Now, I’ve done a whole bunch of interviews over the last year while I was promoting RAPHAEL and JABRIL and there were some VERY good questions. I’ll be borrowing liberally (and shamelessly) from those interviews, too. But I thought maybe all of you might have a question or two that you always wanted someone to ask, but no one ever did. Remember, these questions are supposed to make a potential reader want to read my books. So, don’t ask me the name of my dog. First of all, I don’t HAVE a dog, but secondly … Well, you get the picture.

Which brings us to the contest part. Enter your questions in the comments part of this blog post. I might use your specific question, I might not, BUT, everyone who posts a question (and let’s TRY to be inventive, people) will get her/his name in the hat for a giveaway drawing. The winner will get his/her choice of an autographed copy of any one book … either RAPHAEL, JABRIL or RAJMUND. RAJMUND, of course, will be a promise for the future, the copy to be mailed after the book’s release later this summer.

This contest will only run through the end of March, but I’ll be starting a new contest in April. The prize will be the same, but the entry requirement will be different.

So, get those questions in now!

FACTS, VIDEOS and AMUSING LINKS: Tooling around the Internet, actually looking for photos of Northwestern Washington state, I happened across a website called Atlas Obscura, which describes itself as “A Compendium of the World’s Wonders, Curiosities and Esoterica — sort of the Internet version of a Renaissance era Wonder Cabinet. Here’s the Wiki listing for Wonder Cabinet for anyone who’s never heard of it. So … back to Atlas Obscura, there’s all sorts of cool stuff, but I LOVE these photos of a place called Kjeragbolten in Norway. It’s a GIANT bolder suspended over a 1000 meter abyss! Amazing. My favorite is the picture of the sheep — second row, second from right. I wonder if she jumped there on her own or if there was some human connivance involved?

There are lots more cool photos of this on Flickr, if you’re interested.

NEW REVIEWS!

March 15, 2010

Excellent news this week, a new review of JABRIL was posted at Paranormal Romance and it’s a good one! I was so excited to get on the PNR web site. This the same web site where I’ve been nominated for a PEARL award for RAPHAEL! You can read the review HERE. I also have it on good authority that a review of RAPHAEL should be turning up soon, which is great news, because all those readers who see RAPHAEL’s nomination, but haven’t read the book (!!), can see the reviews now and get a little extra incentive.

I also noticed there’s a new FIVE STAR review of RAPHAEL up on Amazon, and the books continue to sell, so all of these reviews must be helping!

In the meantime, I’m writing away on SOPHIA. She’s just met the “inestimable” Duncan and made a play for Raphael (as if!), but that’s all just maneuvering for power at this point. Colin’s about to drop into her life and wreak a little havoc.

I’m also TRYING to find out when RAJMUND will be released! I can promise you a good story and it’s the longest one yet. And my critique partners tell me it’s the best one yet, too. As soon as I know something, you’ll know! I promise.

Hmmm. Okay. Back to work for me. I’m writing a complex scene with lots of dialogue and multiple characters, including Raphael and Cyn. It’s an important scene and I need to get the dialogue just right, because it sets the stage for a lot of what follows. Trust me, the previous bit would make sense if you knew what I know. (LOLOLOLOL) Sorry. ::cough:: Don’t mean to be cruel. 😛

In the meantime, Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Happy Ides of March, and Happy Spring Break to those of you who get to enjoy one!

NEW INTERVIEW and REVIEW!!

December 16, 2009

The Falcata Times is doing a feature on me today, with a new Interview and reviews of both RAPHAEL and JABRIL. (They like me, they really like me!)

I would have sworn I sent them a picture of me, but …

DBR

And for your holiday enjoyment, here’s some tacky Christmas trees. Yikes!

I’ve been waiting awhile for this review of RAPHAEL from Bitten by Books, and it was worth the wait. Four tombstones and an excellent review!

I’m celebrating right now, but you can check it out here!
