Back to normal!

I'm back to normal after the insanity of AAD. Very excited that its over, but I had a great time this year, and we are already working on next year. Super excited about that. We raised a lot of money for the charities, gave away a ton of books and goodies, and had a generally all around good time. Next year is going to kick this years ass, I guarantee it. And you better be there. (Registration opens in November!)

So on the personal front, I took our appointments, and I'm waiting to hear back on two of them. Here's hoping, total fingers crossed. I had a great time getting to know the agent that we pitched to, and regardless if she wants to rep us or not, shes one hell of a woman, and has my respect always, just for being a generally awesome person. She really went above and beyond to meet authors and be a part of the event. Super sweet.

The one thing that happens when i get back from a romance con, is I wanna write. I get the renewed push and the itch, and it all is wondrous again. And I have ideas about doing writers retreats for the coming years, but its just ideas at this point. It needs to simmer. or fester. take your pick.

Audra and I are working on a few different things right now, but are focusing on something that we had put aside for a while. After this event, it just seemed right to pick it up again, as we both got some great ideas about it. Here's hoping we can rock it in a short amount of time.

So I have a few more appearances before the end of the year as well. This weekend is Collingswood Book festival, and then the weekend after is AlbaCon. Very excited about both. AlbaCon is my end of the year con, and its one I always do well at. Ill be on a slew of panels as well, so come out, hangout, buy books and get drunk with us. its a good time, I swear it.

So I'm back to work... Enjoy your week all, I will.

Harley's takeover.

Morning Ladies.

Stella Let me take over the blog while shes getting breakfast together, which for her consists of a cup of tea and I think a poptart, *Shudder*. So I'm live, and ready for your reading pleasure, well, my story is anyway. Aren't you glad? I sure as hell am.

So Im Harlequin Donahue, crown prince of Rummer, and all around fantastic Satyr. Call me Harley, never Quinn. Im looking forward to seeing what you sexy bitches think of my story, and the fucked up insanity I had to go through. Its not easy when your world gets turned upside down for stupid shit. *shrug* but I think I handled it well, and so did Arabella.

So Who has a question for me? I'm sure some of you do. I talked Stella into a chat later this evening, but since I got the computer now, I'm going to open up questions here on the blog before hand, I mean its only logical. So you got a question, Odds are I have an answer for you. Nothing is taboo... So have at me ladies... I'm an open book.


YAY! Release Day!

Today, Harley is unleashed to the world. I dont know if the world is ready for his kinda Satyr, they were barely ready for Ben and Mina LOL.

Well, to celebrate I have some cool things going on! First, If you email me with the answer to the question "What is the name of Harley's soon to be Satyr in Law" at before the end of the month Ill send you a fun Satyr prize pack (signed cover flat and magnet)

Second, Im doing a review push! If you read the book, and review it at Total E Bound, I'll put you in the running for a special Satyr tshirt, a Satyr mug, and 25$ GC to All Romance E books OR To win, all you have to do is review it from tomorrow to October 14th and Ill pick a winner on the 15th!

Third, How would you like to ask Harley your very own questions? Well this afternoon I'll have a chat going (info on here and twitter) once we get the chat room set up!

Almost ready!

Well AAD is around the corner and I'm feeling a bit better about it because I have all my own stuff finished. Packing, my basket and all the goodies and candy and alcohol. Yes. Its good to have a lot off your plate.

Im still waiting on a few more boxes of books and some gift baskets, but on the whole I would like to say Im seriously ready for this. And not a day too soon! With the new book coming out on Monday, Im trying to get myself into promotional mode. I did send out a few copies for reviews, so that is good, and Im trying to get ready for the days promotional. Harley is talking about a chat on monday... so that might be in the cards.

So whats on the agenda for today? Repacking to pair down the boxes, and tonite, Resident Evil Afterlife, and maybe even the Blue Martini in Newburgh with Larissa from Larissa's Life. That should be fun.
Excited? You should be there are some awesome authors and publishers and its not to be missed, especially if your in the area!

Ok, im back to work, and Im hoping to get stuff finished today and just have a lie in tomorrow before the real craziness of the week ahead happens...

I cant wait for AAD now. Im excited because its so close, and I cant wait to see everyone. Its going to be a seriously cool weekend, Lots of goodies and books and mayhem. I really cant wait though Im nervous that all my prep will go a little pear shaped and people wont have a good time. But thats the issues you deal with when your rocking a convention. Everyone had a good time last year, Im just hoping I can duplicate that.

So that said, for those of you in the area that want a day pass, they are 35$ at the door. they also include the night party. IF you want a party only ticket (for the Masquerade) then its 25$. And dont forget... the booksigning is free to the public and we would LOVE to see you there!

Context Photos

I thought I would post some of these...

First, this is my saturday outfit, Jacket by ChicStar. LOVE the jacket, and yes, Im just a tad hungover, can you tell...

So these are from the shroud party.. Love those guys and OMG everyone that comes to Context is just freaking awesome:

A week and counting!

Until Harley comes to call! YAY! We are very excited about this book finally coming out, and we hope the fans are too! I have been nervous about this one, it took a while to finished (what with Audra being preggers and then having little Matthew) so I'm just glad its finally getting out there.

No reviews as of yet, Hell I havent even gotten our copies yet, so I'm hoping they will be forthcoming. So anyway, I'm thinking about the cool promotional I'm going to do for this book. And truth is, I got nothing. Harley has been making noises about a chat on the 13th, which I will probably let him do, so aside from reviews, I'm a bit at a loss.

What we DID decide to do is give away some cool goodies, namely a signed book cover of the book. How do you win? well you have to answer the question: What is the name of Harley's soon to be father in law?" (Yes this means you have to buy the book. Sorry but nothing in this world is given away for free, and second, why would you want promo of a book your not interested in reading?)

So the first ten people to send the answer starting on the 13th to will get the goodies.

More on the chat as we figure it out!
