August Updates and a Giveaway

My summer's gone by in a blur of activities and deadlines, with more craziness and fun yet to come. As I was checking my calendar this morning I realized that if I had no idea what was going on in my life, the odds were good that no one else did either, and so today's blog will be an assortment of announcements about up and coming events, releases, and a giveaway. 

Let's start with the fun stuff, shall we?  I'm currently running a giveaway via my newsletter and Facebook Group, Hayes' Hellions. 
I'll be giving away a swag package that includes a signed copy of my contemporary Fairy Tale novella, Rescuing Red. All you have to do is join my facebook group or sign up for my newsletter (see right hand column of this blog) and then give me your opinion on whether this new series should be MFM menage or MF. 

I'm opening this contest to anyone, including international readers. Contest closes August 28th, 2015.

Appearances for 2015-2016.

The Midnight Gala: October 9th - 11 2015

This will be my last appearance for 2015, and it's going to be amazing!  I'll be hanging out with fellow authors Laurie Roma, Kali Argent, Lacey Thorn, Jenika Snow and Erika Reed at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel in New Orleans. We're going to tour the city and hang out with readers. We'll have a Q&A session and book signing on Saturday. Later that night we'll be hosting a Fairy Tale Masquerade ball, complete with a sumptuous feast and open bar. Registration closes September first, so grab your tickets now and join us for a weekend to remember.


The Novel Event Experience (TNEE): April 7 - 11 2016
Atlanta, Georgia

A premier author-signing event, don't miss the experience!
The Novel Experience Event is the best parts of other more expensive events (signings, parties and craziness) without the prices. TNEE offers general attendance to readers staying at the hotel for FREE with an option to purchase VIP tickets for a very affordable price.
Readers want what they want – BOOKS and we want to give it to them. Think of TNEE as a one stop shop! Readers will be able to get their reading fix and still be able to party with the authors and publishers they have come to love, in the genres they love.
TNEE includes a VIP preview for all VIP readers to get books signed earlier than the regular signing and exclusive events! Saturdays feature a massive signing and then another night of parties and merriment.

Romancing the Capital: May 6 -7 2016
Ottawa, Ontario Canada

In May 2016, Ottawa is the place to be for Canada’s most awesome romance reader conference! At Romancing the Capital, you’ll interact with your favorite authors, discover new authors and meet other readers who share your passion for reading romance.
Priced right, and with attending authors in every genre from sweet to erotic, contemporary to paranormal, RTC offers something to please every reader. Numerous events are planned, starting from early morning to late at night, so don’t miss the fun!
Treat yourself, and come to Romancing the Capital, where the winters might be cold, but the romance is sizzling hot.

And now, Release updates

Still with me? Great! Wilde Blue (Book 4 in the Wilde Brothers series) is now through it's first round of edits and should be released by mid September. Once I have a firm date from Evernight, I'll be letting everyone know. I can't wait to share Dave Wilde's story with you. 

3013: FATED is in progress and should be out in November. We're going back to Fort Saken on Earth for this book, and I promise we'll be looking in on Alayna, Griz and Ghost while we're there.
