It’s a big day here on the blog. Why?
PRETTY NEW BOOK COVER!
for release on November 24th, 2015
When everything you’ve longed for is standing right in front of you, would you find the courage to chase it when you’ve given up on dreams?
Fox shifter Alison Smith gave up on happy endings when her ex-husband walked out, but that didn’t mean she was allowed to give up on happy. With four growing kids, Allie is determined to look on the bright side and carry on, even when life seems to keep kicking the girl who’s fallen down.
Four kids, two jobs, and a pile of debt left over from her ex seem overwhelming most days. Luckily, Allie has the best friends a girl could ask for. Especially a certain quiet bear who’s always been her rock.
Patient. Oliver Campbell knows what it means to be patient. But twenty years of wanting one unavailable woman may have pushed him to the edge. With Allie working every night at his bar, their friendship has begun to fracture.
Then old ghosts offer one more kick to the little family that’s already down, and patience is a virtue Ollie can no longer afford. Allie’s ex-husband may be gone, but his actions are haunting his family. With danger licking the borders of Cambio Springs, the bear and the fox will have to work together. And twenty years of unspoken truths may finally come to light.
WAKING HEARTS is the third paranormal romance novel in the Cambio Springs Mysteries series.
Some of you may have noticed that I’ve only included one pre-order link for the new book. That is because the Waking Hearts e-book will be released as a Kindle exclusive for the first three months, then have a wider release early next year.
The first and second e-books in the Cambio Springs series have also been made Kindle exclusive for a few months, which means that they are now part of the Kindle Unlimited library and available for borrow for the first time ever! (They are still available in paperback and audio from all major retailers.)
This is the first time I’ve done an exclusive release with any retailer for one of my books, and I will admit that I struggled with the decision. The fact is, the Cambio Springs series has never found as wide an audience as either the Elemental series or the Irin Chronicles. I’m hoping this Kindle promotion will change that and I can reach new readers.
BUT WHAT IF I DON’T HAVE A KINDLE???
DO NOT PANIC.
- The good news is that, if you don’t have a Kindle, you can still purchase the book on release day and read it on the Kindle app available for your tablet or smartphone! (I use this method to purchase from Amazon myself, because I read on my tablet.)
- The other thing you can do is buy the paperback edition, which will be in all the usual places. (Don’t have the pre-order link for paper up yet, but I will.) I’ll also be doing numerous paperback giveaways in the week after the e-book release.
- Or, you can wait. (I’m fairly sure this will be the least popular option, but it is an option.) The e-book will be exclusive with Kindle for the first three months, then I’ll be releasing it at all the other retailers where I usually sell my books.
I realize some of you may not be pleased about not being able to buy from your favorite store on release day, but this is purely a business decision, so I hope you’ll respect that.
I also hope that this promotion will open the series up to new readers who may never have read my books before. Because putting good books into the hands of more readers has always been my goal.
And speaking of paperback giveaways, Assister Gen (that’s my sister, who’s also my assistant) recently cleared out the scary closet in my office which means HOLY COW I HAVE SO MANY PAPERBACKS, YOU GUYS.
So comment on this post and you’ll be entered to win a signed copy of either Shifting Dreams or Desert Bound! (This contest IS open to international readers.) I’ll also be giving another book away over on my Facebook page, so check that out if you’re a FB fan. And I’ll be giving ANOTHER one away over on Twitter. Phew!
Have a wonderful week, everyone!
