Blog Tour de Force–Who’s under my mask?

Well, hello, hello!  I see you caught me haunting the page of the fabulous Amber Scott! Wouldn’t you do the same?  I mean honestly…this place is riddled with gorgeous alpha males and feisty heroines to match.  Everyone knows that is equal to perfection in my book…well they would if they knew who I was under this mask.

It is DAY 1, STOP 1, in Blog Tour de Force’s “Masquerade” and that means a FREE ebook just for commenting, plus your shot at a KINDLE, plus your shot at Amber’s infamous HOT Kit. (Only the winner can reveal what is inside.)

So do you think you know who I am?  Care to render a guess and try for some extra Kindle points?  Go right ahead…I dare you!  See if you can get all these Masquerade Blog Tour De Force authors pegged with one glance.

I will wait for you…I’ll just sit here with my nose buried in Amber’s book, Soul Search, and allow myself to get completely lost in one of Grant’s delicious werewolf kisses. *Sigh* There’s nothing better than a good kiss, especially when it’s delivered from a wonderful, tortured, handsome, werewolf with wounds and secrets buried deep inside.  Oh, to be the lucky woman to help him overcome all that!  Wrap that up in an awesome paranormal storyline with psychics, visions, symbols and ghosts and, “Wha-la!”—like I said before…perfection!

Of course we have some other good werewolf action happening on this tour.  Have you checked out Cherished, the latest installment from Belinda Boring’s Mystic Wolves serial? Mason’s heartfelt emotions nearly brought me to my knees! What a guy!

Or what about another great story by Rachel Thompson and Kelli McCracken, The Evil Within.  Are you ready for this ride?

Hump Day Updates– Sppoooky Fun

Halloween season is my all time favorite and this October I have much spook to celebrate:

1. The ECWC is on the way and I shall be in costume at the dinner as…Zombie Audrey Hepburn! I have a little black dress and make up tips from uber cool Leanne Gagnon, make-up artist extraordinaire.

2. WANTED and Soul Search are both on shelves and rocking the top 100 Kindle charts thanks to all of you! Plus Amazon has Irish Moon on sale!

3. The Evil Within horror anthology will release in two weeks! In it, my first zombie story (are we seeing a theme?) “Dirt Nap” will appear.

4. October 17-22nd is Blog Tour de Force “Masquerade” and I found out who I’ll be in costume as! It’s one of the other authors on tour and nope! Not telling who. The week promises to be a ton of fun for readers and authors, too.

5. The Romancing Your Darkside blog tour continues and along the way I’ve been lucky enough to meet some amazing new book reviewers like Nathiel at The Wolf’s Library, Paula at The Phantom Paragrapher and Holly at Full Moon Bites!

Happy Spooky!

Hump Day Updates–Sneaky!

It’s a sneaky peeky at Soul Search‘s cover!

I know, I know, you all are certainly happy to finally see the cover, but let’s face it. You WANT the book!!!

Life happened. Edits delayed. Formatting challenged. But after much anticipation (and hopefully little irritation)….

This week, you shall (finally) have it! If all converts correctly. FRIDAY!! So stay tuned for the link on Twitter and Facebook.

eARCs go out today. Yes. TODAY. #yayyayayay

After a wild weekend in the Indie Book Blowout sale, Irish Moon hit #1 in Fantasy>Historical in books and ebooks on Amazon! This makes it all the more exciting to have Enchanted Moon, book two in the Moon Magick series, releasing this October!

I’ll be sharing it in the Blog Tour de Force “Masquerade” to all commenters, even if you can’t guess who I’m disguised as for the week.

More news? Yes, there certainly is! Nope. Not telling yet. We’ll save the next delicious tidbit for next week.

Happy Hump Day!

PS: Special thanks to all of you readers who have been ever so patient and understanding with this one’s arrival. It means the world to me to have such support!

 


Hump Day Updates–Praise Chocolate

Today I walked my 6 year old to first grade and cried the whole way home. Yep. My lil guy is growing up far too fast on me. For years now, I thought how wonderful it would be to have both kids in school so I could write all day long without distractions and Dora the Explorer yelling at me in the background.

I’m not on my own for eight hours yet but already I can tell, I’d rather be writing with both kids fighting at my feet.

Dove caramel chocolates are helping get me through along with tons of snuggles from my almost four year old.

It’s been one of those months (summers?). *nibble* I’m WAY behind on goals, which for a plotter goal type like me, gives my hives. But I have a ton to be thankful for. Two healthy, amazing children. A super supportive husband. My writer friends who stand by me the whole virtual day through. My non-writer friends who know just when to force me out dancing. (Force, yeah, right.)

Though I’m behind, I feel like a new era is beginning in my writing. *chomp* In part because of the coming re-releases and exciting anthology projects, in part because of the successes of my current list of titles. Whoa! This is where I’ve been long striving to be all these years! Praise chocolate! And, how did that happen? All those baby steps, I suppose, have finally added up to miles of progress.

A few exciting updates on the horizon: Soul Search releases in three short weeks (eARCs on the 15th), Wanted will re-release soon after and the Indie Book Blowout is Labor Day weekend. *nibble nibble nom nom*

Today, I’m going to press pause. I’m going to eat my Dove’s, hugger on my baby girl, pick my son up later with a smile and just focus on being very present in life. A tear or three will probably jerk out. But thanks to friends and chocolate, I will survive. And thrive.

Hugs, Amber Scott


Scene Song Saturday–”Lights”

As I see the end of Soul Search closing in and I relive these moments Grant and Leigh have given me, editing, polishing, holding close and letting go all at once, this song plays again and again.

“Lights” by Interpol

The music whispers to me about the other side and the dark the stolen souls live in. The lyrics tell me what hides in Grant’s heart when he goes into the dark to destroy the soul thief.

Close your eyes, listen and deep down inside….feel it.
:}Amber Scott


Scene Song Saturday–”Wolf Like Me”

In Soul Search, the hero, Grant Connel, isn’t a werewolf or shapeshifter per se. He was given a wolf’s soul in order to save his life. This wolf soul takes over in physical form in order to hunt soul thieves and free stolen souls.

This song by TV on the Radio is my favorite to listen to in scenes where Grant is hunting, fighting to hold the wolf in him at bay so that he doesn’t transform too soon and lose the chance to free the golden light he sees trapped inside his prey.

It’s called “Wolf Like Me”….

If you needed to be instilled with animal soul in order to save your own, what animal would you choose?

Soul Search releases officially this August. For an advanced preview of it, tune in Monday for Menage a Blog, the 3rd Blog Tour de Force Tour, and get a free eBook, too! For the entire tour , all you have to do is comment to win!!

Hump Day Updates

Today is all about spilling some secrets. Why? Because juicy secrets are just too fun NOT to share!

The HOT Club is not just a page here, it is also my secret group on Facebook, and it is hopping! If you want in, friend me on Facebook then let me know to add you in. HOT Club Rule #1: Tell everyone you’re in HOT Club. #2: Spoil the HOT. This means swag, news, extras goes to fans first.

Another juicy secret: This Blog Tour de Force’s “Menage a Blog” is coming July 18-22nd and one of the authors on tour could be showing up with a celebrity in tow!! Yep, one of her characters is based on an actor who contacted her about potentially connecting to promote her books. WOW! So, who is it? You’ll have to tune in online to solve that little mystery. But don’t worry, if you go to Blog Tour de Force on Facebook or follow the #BlogTourDeForce hashtag on Twitter, you’ll easily find out.

Speaking of “Menage a Blog,” July 18th, I’m up against Deena Remiel and Carolyn McCray in a flirt to the finish. In addition to scoring Fierce Dawn on ebook for free just for commenting, I’m offering and advanced ebook review copy of Soul Search to every single commenter. This stand alone paranormal romance, set in 1930, will satisfy your inner paranormal investigator with the hero’s hunt for a soul thief before it’s too late to save his missing nephew. After everything else, falling for the spiritualist medium aiding in his search is absolutely, undeniably the worst thing he can do.

Don’t worry, I saw all those ears perking up at the mention of Fierce Dawn and since I know most of you have read it, I have a little treat! Here, on this site, I have a secret page that is password entry only. It gives you a little scene extra snippet from Fierce Dawn that Elijah lovers will adore! To get to the page, email me at amberscottbooks@gmail.com and I’ll get you your goodie!

PS: Fierce Dawn hit #10 on the Amazon Kindle Vampire>Romance list!!! WHOA!
