Hump Day Updates: Soooo Big!

This last week was all about the BIG.

Big…ahem…muscles. (See Jimmy Thomas. Does my grin say it ALL?)

Big events like Arizona Dreamin’. Year one amazed and wowed me, all the authors and all the readers, too. This is a reader-centric event. A fangirl gush dream. As a fan, I got to stalk both Erin Kellison and Gini Koch IN PERSON.

Not to mention Erin Quinn and Deena Remiel. Two more faves.

As an author, I got to meet several HOT club members in person. *hugs*

OH, and did I mention hunky Jimmy Thomas was there. He’s even MORE gorgeous in person with the personality to match. A genuinely kind soul that you immediately warm to.

The Indie Book Collective programs and staff are growing fast and hard and I’m pinching myself that I’m an integral part of it.

There’s BIG exciting stuff on deck this summer:

June 29th: “Dollars & Sense: The Definitive Guide to Self-publishing Success” by Carolyn McCray, Rachel Thompson and yours truly will be up for Bestseller For a Day. Truly, this ebook will help any author. Not just Indie.

July 18th-22nd: I’ll join 14 authors in the Blog Tour de Force Menage a Blog where for 5 days, 3 authors per day will woo you with prizes, free ebooks and a chance to win a KINDLE! My coming release “Soul Search” will be up for grabs. We’re talking BIG fun.

July 28th-31st I’ll join Indie Book Co-founders Carolyn McCray and Rachel Thompson in New York City for the Indie Book Event where we’ll speak on two industry panels. BIG history in the making.

My weekly co-hosting gigs on Blog Talk Radio are proving to be BIG fun.

If you’re like me, summer is for reading. Right? Right! I started my summer off with “Shadow Touch” by Erin Kellison. Right now it’s only 99 cents on Amazon Kindle and I have to say, yes, I stalk her, but this one BLEW me away BIG time.  Grab it while its hot and let me know what you think. I’m dying to chat about it.

Happy Summer!

Hot Trends and Big Winners!

The final frontier for us authors in the digital age is the ability to give readers something personal. Like a signing. Thanks to being Indie and scoring an iPad plus the brilliant Indie Book Collective having two fingers on the industry’s pulse, I can give my readers a signed ebook.

Sweet!!

It’s my new favorite thing to give away now. Today at Immortality and Beyond, a signed copy of Fierce Dawn is up for grabs. Plus anyone who helps Fierce Dawn scale the Amazon Kindle charts now through May 18th, can request one from me, too. AND I have a winner of the one I gave away in the recent Blog Tour de Force Cage Match, too!

Whew! Let’s a catch a breath.

We also have a winner of the Super Secret Spoil Me prize. The contents in it are so awesome that I can’t tell you what’s in it. If the winner wants to, hey, that’s cool. But I’m sworn to secrecy.

But first…a couple announcements.

I’ll be joining eighteen authors in the first bi-annual Arizona Dreaming reader event June 4th in Tempe, AZ. It’s a day of fun and chatting up all your favorite on-the-rise authors. I can’t wait! Limited seats available and tickets are selling fast. Get yours here.

July 30th I’ll join Rachel Thompson and Carolyn McCray to speak on two panels at the Indie Book Event in New York City!

May 18th marks Fierce Dawn‘s Bestseller For a Day and I’m starting to see that 3 times might in fact be a charm. Reviews and reactions over Fierce Dawn are phenomenal. The event itself is getting national attention. How cool that a seed of an idea, thanks to all of you, is growing so fast!

NOW, for the winners….

The Super Secret Prize goes to….Hazel O’Shea!!

The signed ebook, commenter from The Bookish Snob goes to…Toni LoTempio!!

Huge Congrats to both and thank you to all who came to play. Off to sign and send and stuff…happy Thursday all!
