Saturday, January 31st, 1pm – 4pm EST

KissCon Sarasota, hosted by Avon Books

Florida Studio Theater, Court Cabaret
1265 1st Street
Sarasota, FL 34236

Description: Avon Books and Bookstore 1 Sarasota are teaming up for a multi-author event with Katharine Ashe, Maya Banks, Lena Diaz, Megan Frampton, Jeaniene Frost, Laura Lee Gurhrke, C.J. Kyle, Julia Quinn, Kerrelyn Sparks and C.L. Wilson. More info and tickets here.

Next I have the first 38 pages of Bound By Flames available online courtesy of my publisher, Harper Collins. I know; it used to be the first 20% but they changed it. To read the first three chapters, go here and then click “Read A Sample” under the cover.

Finally, here is the playlist of songs that I listened to while writing Bound By Flames. As many of you know, writing to specific music helps put me in the right frame of mind because I’m conditioning myself to write a particular story whenever I hear those songs (not saying this will work for every writer, but it works for me). That being said, there’s no hidden meaning for the book in these songs. Some of these are recommendations that you, readers, have given me, so thank you again! Remember: Music tastes are as personal as reading tastes, so if you don’t like some of the bands/songs, no problem. Just please don’t tell me that I shouldn’t like them, because if a song/band is listed, then I like do, and no arguing on your part will change my mind :).

Layout is band name: songs (if more than one from the same band). Bands are in alphabetical order for ease of listing.

Final BBF giveaway winners

Wow, are you guys ready for the next Vlad and Leila book! I thought that limiting the time frame for the final contest would pare down the number of entries, but 925 of you disagreed. Since I only had six more books to give away, that means I’m about to disappoint most of you, and for that I’m sorry. At least you only have to wait one more week for Bound By Flames, and January 27th will be here before you know it. Also, if you want to order a signed paperback, Malaprops Book Store has them. Go to their page here to pre-order, and when I’m at Malaprops next week, I will sign your copy and Malaprops will ship it out to you. They even ship internationally, how cool is that?

If you haven’t already seen my event schedule for Bound By Flames, go here. Maybe I’ll be in your area soon!

All right, now let’s get to the six winners! They are:

Pamela Venini, Christina Malave, Kristin Russell, Crystal Scarfo-Harris, Jessie Studie, and Kristen Spina.

Congratulations, ladies! Please check your inbox for instructions on how to receive your book.

For all of you who didn’t win, I give you a consolation prize of a .gif of Tyler Heochlin, who plays Derreck on Teen Wolf, and who would seriously cause me to reconsider werewolves over vampires if he came with the package  ;). Click the image to see the ab muscles ripple, ladies!

Bound By Flames book trailer!

Hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday! Some part of me can’t believe that 2015 is already here, but the calendar doesn’t lie. January is here and with it, the release of the next Night Prince novel on the 27th. As the subject line states, the book trailer for Bound By Flames is now up. Once more, I turned to Book Candy Studios to produce the trailer. Hope you enjoy!

Link to trailer on YouTube here.

Romantic Times magazine gave Bound By Flames a “Top Pick” rating (and also a “Hot” rating, for those readers who enjoy the spicy stuff ;)) and had this to say about it:

“The great news is that it’s time for the next Night Prince novel – and it’s everything we hoped for. The learning curve for marriage between passionate Vlad and Leila is proving to be a bit steep, and it doesn’t help that they are still under attack. Frost’s incredible patented brand of gripping romance ensures that the threats are horrifying real and the emotions utterly intense. Hang on tight!”

As a reminder, to help celebrate the upcoming release of Bound By Flames, the first book in the Night Prince series, Once Burned, is on sale in ebook for only $1.99. So is Halfway to the Grave, in case you’ve already read the Vlad and Leila books and are looking at sampling another series I’ve written, so swing by your favorite ebook retailer if you’re interested. And as another reminder, here is my appearance schedule for January and February, so check it out to see if I’ll be in your city. Hope to see some of you later this month and next month! :)

New appearances, an online chat + giveaway, and deal alert

InspireLots of stuff to cover, so let’s get right to it! First up is my live chat and giveaway. On Monday, December 15th from 1pm through 11pm Eastern time, bestselling author Cora Carmack is hosting an online party to celebrate the release of her New Adult paranormal, INSPIRE. I’m a big fan of Cora’s books and she is sweetie in person, so when she asked me if I’d like to participate in her release party, I immediately said yes. As you can see from the picture, several more authors are participating, too, and there will be prizes and giveaways during the duration of the the event. My time slot is from 7:00pm – 7:30pm, Eastern time on Monday, over on this page HERE.

ApollyCon

Join over two dozen authors for an all-day event OR book signing only, reader’s choice which.

Philadelphia, PA

 

Yes, I’m only doing three events for Bound By Flames’ release. In 2014, I traveled to 16 different cities and ended up spending over a month on the road. I love meeting readers and seeing new places, but all that time away from my keyboard wasn’t good for my deadlines. In order to get caught up, I’m really cutting back on my travel in 2015. After all, if I don’t keep writing new books, then we won’t have much to talk about when I finally do make it to your area ;).

Speaking of books, my publisher is doing something special to celebrate the upcoming release of Bound By Flames. From now until January 19th, Once Burned, book one in the Night Prince series, is only $1.99 in ebook*. But wait, there’s more! During the same time frame, my publisher has also dropped the price of Halfway to the Grave, book one in the Night Huntress series, to only $1.99 in ebook. So, if you’ve read one series but not the other, now is your chance to meet new characters at a very low price. Already read both? Then tell a friend, if you enjoyed them. As an author, there’s nothing more flattering than a reader taking the time to recommend my books.

OnceBurned mm c updatedOrder Once Burned at:  Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, or your favorite ebook retailer.

 

HalfwayToGraveEPB (1)Order Halfway to the Grave at: Amazon, Barnes&Noble, iBooks or your favorite ebook retailer.

 

 

 

 

That’s it for now. See some of you on Monday, if you can make it to the live chat!

 

*Sale priced guaranteed for US residents only. This isn’t up to me or my publisher: foreign retailers have discretion over whether they utilize a sale price or not.

 

Audio versions of Bound By Flames scene snippets!

I am thisclose to being finished with my Christmas shopping, so any personal updates would consist of things like “Okay, who am I forgetting and what would they want?” plus “How is Christmas in two weeks, anyway? It isn’t possible!” But, since no one wants to listen to my forgetfulness or complaining, I’m giving you something GOOD to listen to instead :). Thanks to my fabulous audio narrator, Tavia Gilbert, and HarperAudio, we now have audio versions of all three previously-posted scene snippets from Bound By Flames. If you haven’t already seen the printed versions, they are  here , here and here. If you want to listen to those versions, click the samples below:

Hope you enjoyed and thanks again to Tavia and Harper for making these available :)

Please note: Although there aren’t pre-order links available for the audio version of Bound By Flames (don’t ask me why –  I wish there would be!) the audio version WILL release on January 27th along with the paperback and ebook formats.
