Winner for the Download Dante Party and info

Ok, I have been such a mess the past few days since the release, but Since its my birthday, Im deciding to do the winner of the AWESOMELY attended Download Dante Party on twitter and Several blogs. Everyone had to totally amazing time, and Im really excited that so many awesome bloggers were into rocking the release with us. Thank you All again, you guys were so awesome to do it.

Ok so without further adieu, the winner of the three backlist books is Lillie H. Congrats! I'll be in contact with you to see what books you want (e book only, sorry!)

So you wanna win something? Im giving away something on the TRS blog today... so go and check it out... See? my birthday and you get the presents!

So, I got my birthday present from Joe. He got me the Tiffany & Co. key I wanted. See I believe that at least once in every girls life, they should get the blue bag, and the little blue box with the white ribbon, and the little blue pouch with the jewelry in it from Tiffany & Co. My thing was, I'm not a big jewelry fan in general, because I'm not all about status. When I saw the keys, I wanted one right away, but not one of the insane ones with the diamonds. Nope. I wanted and got the midnight titanium one. It fits me better then some glittery sparkly thing. Its almost flat black, and perfect for my style. So now, as he said, I don't have to wear my octopus all the time, if ever. Bastard. I knew he had an agenda. HEH.

Seriously though, its been a pretty good birthday weekend. LOST last night, and a full Monday just for me. Not too bad. Lets hope 31 is an awesome year.

Movie post: the Covenant: Candy for women

Ok so who saw The Covenant? It was this flick that came out in 2006 and was in essence, a male version of The Craft with hotter guys. I mean this flick is all around high school man candy... if you believe that guys look like that IN high school, and that 5 super hot guys (its like the boy band of witches, something for everyone really) would all be bro's and friends.

Does anyone see this for the blatant money making machine it was supposed to be? The flick has no real story, and no continuity, hell it just seems like a vehicle to show off the guys in swimming speedo's (not that I'm complaining, they were quite fetching)
So who has seen this flick, and what was your take on it?

New release coming up!

So on Saturday, we have a new book coming out in E book. You Burn Me is our novella about side character Dante Barratt, and the sexy witch that sets his world on its ear. It is a cute and sexy tale, far different from anything else we have written and Im hoping you guys enjoy it.

Here is the blurb:

A priestess of The Morrigan, Xxieda Rolla is a woman who has known success in her business, fulfillment in her family life and is only missing one thing: the love of the man that would have her for always. Sent to Shadow Heights New York by her goddess to find him, she meets the ever tasty, ever surly Dante Barratt. Sparks fly, and so does Amaretto Latte.

Dante, a dealer of rare and illegal commodities, and a very tempestuous fire demon might want the woman who's brown eyes haunt him, but knows better then to get involved with someone who just screams purity. Shes hot, and successful in ways he never could be, and knows a man that just gave away his soul like he did didn't deserve a woman like that.

After a chance encounter on a dark street corner, and an earth shattering kiss, Both are powerless to deny the chemistry between them... until Xxieda tells him her secret: shes a virgin.

Caught between his head and his heart, can Dante accept the fact that Fate sometimes gives us exactly what we really need, not what we think we want?

So you wanna help us celebrate this release, hangout and maybe win some cool goodies? Im going to be doing a small twitter party on next monday, so stay tuned for the info! Ill be giving away tons of goodies, from books to promo. So stay tuned!

RT Recap: Friday! (with costumes!)

Yesterday's winner was Carol L. Email me at and Ill get your goodies out.

Friday was my busy day. I had a panel in the morning, Club RT party, expo after that and then the big party for the night. Friday was stella's steampunk day, and I wore my cute steampunk outfits (and YES, I wear these as normal clothing, I dont dress up for photo shoots and play poser, I just dont wear my goggles all the time.)

So this is my day clothes, and yes, I was SUPER comfortable.

This was my awesome evening outfit. Yes, the Skirt is from ChicStar, and it was the BEST BEST BEST thing to compliment the full outfit. I dont think I could find a better fitting and breatable skirt for this (cuz lets face it, DAMN I was trussed up!)

There are tons of pictures of me floating about from the Vamp ball, but heres a bunch of others from my freinds:

Cool right? We had a great time. Saturday is coming up... and it was the best day, the signing!

So todays question: What would you wear to the vamp ball if you didnt have to be a vamp?

RT Recap: Thursday.

Monday's winner is Sandy Jay. Email me at and I'll get your addy.

Thursday was a lot of fun. Since I didnt have anything major to do, I did a lot of walking around, had some lunch with Bianca D'Arc and Tilly Greene, and collected promo goodies.

Thursday night we had the Faerie Ball, and I was a faun. Infact I was videoed during the farie ball with my wicked horns on. Yes they were heavy, but damn did they look good. So heres some pictures:

From top: Stella (in the horns) Ash and Liz Darvill, some of the readers in their faerie garb, Liz darvill and Andrew Shaeffer, and Delilah Marvelle with Andrew Shaffer. Andrew was a Mr. Romance contestant but he wasn't the kinda Mr. Romance I detest. He is a writer, and his Non Fiction is coming out in Jan 2011 with Harper Perennial.

I had to take those horns off though mid party, and put on a set of smaller ones. But Damn were they awesome to wear.

So If you went to Faerie Ball, what would you dress up in? Remember this is for a book and some goodies, so have at it!

RT Recap and the beginning of the weeklong contest!

Well I'm somewhat more relaxed after the whirlwind that was RT this year. It was quite possibly the best one i have been to, by way of Hotel, parties and people. the Bookseller this year was only interested in getting the top three authors books, and the rest of us were fucked. Still, I sold out of Entwined by Fate, Hung out with some awesome people, got the word out about weresnakes and rocked all my cute clothes. So shall we get on with it?

So, today we will deal with wed. We got in really early, dropped off the gift baskets to the Bookseller room and the Club RT, then rocked to the airport to pick Liz up. It went quickly and then we were back at the hotel, Fondue getting everything up to the room and Liz and I rocking to registration. I had two panels on wed, the writing with a partner one (which was super fun, LOVE the ladies I did the panel with!) and then a promotional panel with Bianca, Flash and D. Renee Bagby. It was fun and I hope people learned a lot, we were spitting out info left and right.

We then got ready for the EC party. what an interesting time that was. I have to be honest, i could care less about the mens getting nekkid on stage, it was much more fun to grab swag and hangout with the people I knew laughing at the guys onstage. Cuz it was funny.

After that was the Mad Hatter's tea party. So much fun, a lot of goodness and goodies. I had a great time, though I hadn't slept since 530 AM the day before. Needless to say I went to my room and passed right out. It was a lot of fun. And a perfect beginning of the week for me.

So... About that contest. I'm giving away A book a day from Today to Friday, and some swag too. I didn't get a HUGE amount of books this year, but I did get some. To win one, just comment here.
