Sorry for the unexpected blog silence and the promised Arc contests that I haven’t posted yet. I have a good reason for both. Before I get to that, however, here are some new updates.
To celebrate the upcoming release of Twice Tempted, for a very limited time only, you can get Once Burned in ebook for only $1.99. Note: This discount is guaranteed for US readers only*. International retailers can choose to raise the price (and they often do, I’m sorry to say). If you’re interested, here are some handy ordering links: Kindle, Nook, iTunes, Sony
Another event has been added to my March appearances, and I think you’ll agree that this sounds amazing:
March 24th, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Supernatural Sunday Spectacular with Kim Harrison, Vicki Pettersson, Pamela Palmer, and Jeaniene Frost. Hosted by Fountain Book Store. Panel moderated by Kelly Justice, owner of Fountain Book Store.
Location: Sam Miller’s restaurant
1212 East Cary Street
Richmond, Va 23219
If you’re not in the area but you want an autographed copy of the latest releases from any of the authors above, you can get one through Fountain Books. Details are on this page. Note: Twice Tempted WILL be the book that I’m autographing at this event, but their website still shows Once Burned. This will be corrected asap, so if you want Twice Tempted, please wait until the page updates to request your signed copy.
Also, to dispel rumors I’ve seen online, let me stress that the audio version of Twice Tempted will release the same date as the paperback and ebook, which is March 26th. There are, however, no pre-order links available (don’t ask me why; I don’t understand). Still, again, there will be no delay in the audio version releasing. Thanks to Tavia Gilbert for another wonderful narration.
In a previous post, I said that the first two chapters of Twice Tempted would be available in the free ebook It Happened One Valentine’s Day. This turned out to be incorrect. Only the first chapter is available, and apparently the write-up originally posted regarding my inspiration for the story was wrong, too. The latter is supposed to be fixed. The former is what it is, but again, the first 20% will be posted online about two weeks before release. Sorry for any inconvenience.
Finally, here’s why I’ve been offline and you didn’t get the promised contests. Last Tuesday, my family called to tell me that my mother had two cardiac arrests. Thank God she was already in the hospital at the time for a kidney infection, so they were able to get her stabilized. She did need emergency surgery to install a pacemaker, though, and because of her other health issues, the surgery was risky. So we drove down to Florida to be with her and the rest of my family. On Valentine’s Day, her pacemaker was installed and she came through it all okay (best Valentine’s present I’ve ever received). We stayed on a few more days to help set some stuff up and then drove back on Sunday and Monday. As you can imagine, I now have a lot of business catching up to do, so as soon as I can, I’ll get the Arc contests going.
Thanks to everyone for your patience on this and any of the other issues.
* Kobo ebook is incorrectly showing Once Burned at a higher price. I have let my publisher know so that they can fix this.
