Hump Day Updates–Goodies for YOU!

The Emerald City Writers’ Conference was A-freaking-mazing.

I fangirl gushed over Julia Quinn. I got a pic with her!! (To post soon.) I even remembered to tell her that I cried at the end of When He Was Wicked. *sigh* I still get choked up over it.

I dressed as Zombie Audrey Hepburn–so right, so very wrong.

I met and now stalk the awesomely funny Sarah Wendell, of Smart Bitches, Trashy Books, who held up a giant pair of panties in her keynote speech. Her example of our big girl panties. Gotta wear ‘em! Gotta love a gal with guts. I also scored a copy of her book. Sweet!

I got lots o goodies, in fact!

That I am giving away. Cuz I heart you!!

The goodies include:

  • Night Veil by Yasmine Galenorn
  • Blood Trinity by Sherrilyn Kenyon & Dianna Love
  • Everything I Know About Love I Learned From Reading Romance Novels by Sarah Wendell

Hump Day Updates–Fast and Hard

The holiday season is coming on fast and hard.

Halloween!! I love, love, LOVE scary season. Not just for the candy or costumes or things that go bump in the night. Moreover, all us paranormal lovers get license to fang, howl and hex out in the open.

This Halloween season will bring Enchanted Moon, “Dirt Nap” in The Evil Within, and possibly, if life cooperates, the re-release of The Best Revenge.

Speaking of Enchanted Moon, the What’s My Name contest got a couple extra days of a go. Today will be the last day to throw your name suggestion in the hat. Just click here and put it in the status or as a comment. Feel free to shout out to your favorite suggestion, too. Just click here. Be sure to hit the like button while you’re there!

Also in October, I’ll be giving an online workshop through the Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Chapter of RWA, called Red Carpet Writing where I share screenwriting tips for novelists.

When I’m up at the ECWC, there will be a costume dinner. What am I going as?

You’ll never guess.

Zombie Audrey Hepburn! Yep, right down to the little black dress. I CAN”T WAIT!

Happy Hump Day! What’s coming soon for you?

Hump Day Updates–Fall Up!

Remember the cover of Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein? Ever feel like that’s you peeking over that same drawn edge?

Yeah. Me, too. After a hectic summer and blazing hot days down here in AZ, I am SO ready for fall. And not just for the cooler weather and my coming zombie Audrey Hepburn Halloween costume. (Shhh, don’t tell. It’s a surprise!) I have a lot of other exciting stuff on deck, too!

This September, after two editorial delays (read life happens), Soul Search shall release! YAY!!!! Wanted shall re-release!!! And, should all go well, Muse Food: Getting Hungry will coming trotting out after. Cool!

In October, I’ll be presenting “Muse Food” at the ECWC with my very talented and extraordinary co-presenter, Jess Macallan. Jess and I met last year at the same conference when I shyly sat next to her at lunch and we found we have tons in common, primarily that we’re both brain geeks!

Also in October, I get to join eleven other authors in the Blog Tour de Force “Masquerade” tour where we will all masquerade as each other so readers can guess who is who while grabbing over twelve titles free on ebook. Sweet!

Somewhere in there, two anthologies I am lucky enough to be in also release. I’m particularly excited about the horror anthology, The Evil Within, and my contribution, “Dirt Nap”, my zombie first. I will tell you now that I am shocked at how much fun zombie Cara was to write.

I also wanted to thank the winner of this summer’s Menage a Blog HOT kit, Angi Morgan!

More news coming soon and to catch me currently, be sure to tune into the Romancing Your Dark Side paranormal book tour. Lots to win and gab about.

HUGS! Amber
