I'm slightly ashamed of the fact that I nearly always have to open my blog posts with some proof of life.
Yes, I'm still breathing! I haven't been spending my time doing my nails, or polishing the hubcaps on the Kluger, either. I'm nearly done with the dirty draft for HIS DEADLY ECHO, a prospective Nocturne Bites submission. And while the end is nigh, I cannot say 'dirty' enough. It's a bit of a hot mess, but it's definitely getting there.
Otherness, this is winging its was around the blogosphere, and I thought I'd rock the party, too. I think this is one of my fave covers going around at the mo'... something about him holding her upper arms, and her fingers splayed on her thigh. Pretty. Oh, and there is talk of signed book giveaway.
To help celebrate the release of Forbidden, Christina Phillips's debut Roman/Druid Ancient Historical Romance from Berkley Heat, she's holding a launch party with lots of amazing authors and fabulous giveaways! In addition, Christina's giving away a signed copy of Forbidden to one lucky person who helps spread the love. All you have to do is mention the party (you can copy and paste this blurb), being held from 1st to 6th September at http://christinaphillips.blogspot.com. You can Tweet about it, blog, Facebook, MySpace or anything! And then drop her an email at ChristinapPh @ gmail dot com (no spaces) to let her know. Please put Forbidden Launch Party (or something similar) in the subject line. The winner will be drawn for that on Monday 6th September.
And if you'd like to also put the trailer up on your sites, please do!!! The YouTube link to embed is here.
I'd love to put the Youtube clip on, but something's hinkey (probably me), so I'll just put this:
"I dare you to put down Forbidden until you reach the last page. Compelling, passionate and fascinating." Anna Campbell, author of CAPTIVE OF SIN
Nice one, Anna!
Fellow SARA, Eleni Konstantine will be there, as well as a number of totally cool people.
Speaking of Eleni, I've just finished reading the Little Gems Topaz Anthology, which features Eleni's cover design, as well as more SARA's--Bronwyn Stuart and Maggie Mundy. Hit the link above to order yours, or go to Christina's party, Eleni is giving one away!
Take care, all. E x
