AAD loves Bloggers!

I figured I would post about this here, as we have figured out what the bloggers are going to get. See Bloggers are the life's blood of the reviewing world because they dont do it for the job, they do it for the love of books. And because we love to write the books they LOVE to read, We wanna give back..

This year at AAD, Bloggers will be treated to some special goodies. Bloggers that attend will recieve a special welcome party with the authors Thursday night, a special blogger welcome back (in addition to the actual welcome bag) and it will have several ARC's, low number (meaning books we only have like 10 or less of) books, Special premium items, special goodies and the ability to set up one on one interviews for their blog, in person on video or transcribed. These ARC's wont be given to others on the whole and you can expect them from Cynthia Eden, Jacquelyn Frank, Kensington Books, Ballantine Books, and several other authors. To know the full list, you will have to attend as a blogger!

So what are you waiting for? Sign up HERE!

I love these pants

Yes I have said it before, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE these pants! They are black denim, and soft and just a little stretchy.Comfort doesn't even BEGIN to describe how great these are. I just like that you can wear them casual or have them dressed up in heels. And guess what? they were super cheap and you can get them at ChicStar.com

Now that I have shown off my new clothes, Lemme tell you all about What Im doing. With AAD coming quicker then I realized, I'm getting Promo done, design work done, costumes ordered for both myself and Audra, helping Jacki figure hers out, and oh yeah dealing with edits for our book To Collar and Keep. The book is the second in our satyr series, and will be available the week of AAD so im trying to deal with everything con wise and gets edits done. Its busy busy busy!

Also, ConTEXT is coming, and I have to get all set up for that, to hangout with the girls and our friends we see each year. I cant wait for it. So I'm busy, and I'm back to my edits. have a good week everyone!

Coming Soon: Astoroth!

Yes, very excited that Astoroth is coming June 15th. If you dont know, Audra and I write a series about fallen angels, and while most are taking them as angels and such... our s are really fallen. they hangout with Lucifer, who is a staple in the books, and influence mankind. Our thing with this series is that Lucifer and his crew have gotten a bad rep, cuz Heaven has some really good PR. Really Heaven and those on high don't give a fig about whats going on on earth, or with God's chosen, the Humans. They are so neglectful, that Lucifer and his crew not only love humanity, but are on the front lines of the war for souls. They love, they lose and they hope, like everyone, its just that their wings are a bit more sooty and tarnished.

So this story is about Astoroth, high duke of hell. When a woman at the end of her bucket list meets him in a bar in Las Vegas, he sees the possibility for some harmless fun with a human just at her expiration date... what he doesn't count on is deciding to keep her...

Its a shorty, because you will see Astor later in the series (which we are busily writing) and when you do you will know all about his relationship with the human... and guess what? its 99 cents! thats right, super cheap and super sexy... Astor is quite a hottie.

So June 15th is when you can grab your copy of his short and fall in love with the Duke...
