Review for BAIT

I haven't posted a review from another blogger for any of my books in a long time, so I thought I'd do it now.  This review is for Bait.  The blogger approached me about reviewing it, which is always a good sign, and she loved it.

Check out the review now.

You can download a copy of Bait here:

Or get a copy at B&N, Smashwords, Kobo, Ibookstore, etc.

Seven 11 Blog Hop

From WIZARDS RULE (available for pre-order at Amazon).

“M-my—” She cleared her throat and tried again. “My name is—”
“I know who you are, dear Silver, and I know why you’ve come.” He stepped out of the shadows, a figure wrapped in a black cloak complete with a hood that concealed his face.
“—is a vampire again,” Samuel finished her sentence. “And you are hoping I can restore his humanity.”
She tried to smile but failed. “Can you?”
“Absolutely. I could do it without breaking a sweat. My powers are beyond your understanding.”
The heavy weight riding on her shoulders lifted off in an instant, and her smile turned genuine. “When can you—”
“I didn’t say I would do it.”
“There is something I want from you first.”
“What?” She would give him anything in exchange for Jack’s mortal life.
The wizard raised a hand and flicked his fingers. Her head twisted to the left of its own accord. She heard her neck snap. The horrible sound filled her ears, and she wanted to scream, but it was over. Too late to do anything other than fall. Darkness overtook her, and she crumpled to the floor.

Her dead eyes stared up at the wizard.

When Made Reapers and souls begin disappearing, however, Grace and her mentor Tully suspect demons. Grace’s worst fears are confirmed when her living family is threatened. She’ll have to break every rule in the Reaper book to save them, including using a little magic to become temporarily human. With the help of Tully and her witchy friend Tessa, Grace goes undercover to save the fates of kidnapped souls – only to discover that demons aren’t working alone. Betrayal and distrust runs deep and Grace discovers that sometimes even Reapers are prone to humanity. ___________________________ And just in case you'd like to see the full wrap for paperback, I'm more than happy to share that too because I LOVE the back!

Want to join?


Do you know what a street team is?

The music industry has been using street teams for years.  Members are mega fans who enjoy promoting the music.  They call radio stations and request the songs, hand out fliers, pin up posters, etc.  Now authors are using them to help promote online, Tweet about books, post about them on blogs, etc.  

What do you get in return?

Members are the first to hear news on upcoming books.  They get to meet and make friends with others who enjoy the same books.  Also, they sometimes get free print copies of books, swag such as bookmarks, a closer relationship with the author, and they know their opinions are heard.  In fact, sometimes when I am having trouble naming a character or deciding what to do about a certain character, I will ask the members what they think.

However, I'm not sure about doing this yet.  Do I have MEGA fans yet who love to discuss my books with others?  Right now I'm just testing the waters.  If enough people aren't interested, I'll wait for another year or two.

If you think it sounds like an awesome opportunity and you would like to join my street team, let me know.  Maybe will do it.

Get your scorecards ready.

The Walking Dead returns in October for the fifth season, and we all have one question on our minds.  Who will live to see season six?

1.  Rick: After his wife died, he went crazy for a while.  The man actually thought he could put down his weapons and farm for a while.  Sorry, Rick.  There are zombies everywhere, and they want to eat you.  He finally came to his senses, and at the end of last season we got to see some of that fire back in his eyes as he stated, "They are (bleep)ing with the wrong people."  That's right.  You go, Rick!  Problem is Rick's decision making skills are not one hundred percent reliable.  Most of the time I think the group would be better off to do the opposite of what he says.

Rick's odds of living?  GOOD.  I think Rick will outlive everyone else because the form more or less revolves around him.  I've heard the producers are toying with the idea of killing him off, but I don't see it happening soon.

2.  Daryl:  He started off as a total jerk, but when you put that badass mechanical bow with a motorcycle and a knowing sneer, who can resist?  Daryl has risen to the top of the heap.  He's got fans out there who would riot if he died.  Personally, I would love to see Daryl and Carol hook up.  They are so cute when they tease each other.

Daryl's odd of living: EXCELLENT.

3. Beth:  This girl has come out of nowhere, going from background dressing to an up and comer.  She and Daryl spent a while together, and they got kind of close.  Then she disappeared.  A lot of people are saying she was eaten, but I don't think so.  The producers have plans for this girl.

Beth's odds of living:  GOOD

4.  Carol:  This woman is fast becoming a badass in her own right.  No longer a human punching bag, we've seen her make hard decisions and kill humans in order to save others.  She is one of my favorites.

Carol's odds of living:  EXCELLENT.  Got to keep her, at least for now.  She and Daryl have some unfinished business.

5.  Carl:  Rick's son drives me nuts.  From the very beginning I have been begging zombies to take a bite out of him, but he is lucky.  Way too lucky.  Maybe it will run out someday.

Carl's odds of living: FAIR.  He's a toss up.  The kid is so dumb that he eventually has to die.  Come on zombies.

6.  Glenn:  Speaking of luck.  He sure has had his fair share of it.  After being separated from his wife and trapped at the prison, he managed to make it out and find new friends.

Glenn's odds of living?  FAIR.  People like him, but I think he's going to get it one of these days.

7.  Maggie:  Glenn's wife has taken quite a few chances in order to find him again.  The lovebirds were reunited, but I think one of them is going to get it soon.  Just a hunch.

Maggie's odds of living?  FAIR

8.  Michone:  This girl is badass and I love watching her in action.  She walks among zombies, using tricks that no one else has incorporated.  Come on, people.  Watch how it's done.

Michone's odds of living:  EXCELLENT.  She is so skilled, she can kill these things in her sleep.

9.  Scientist, GI Joe and his girl, those traveling with Maggie:  I can't remember their names, but all of these people are hanging on a thread.  Any or all of them could die at any given time.  Not to worry.  The show adds new people all the time.

Odds of survival:  NOT GOOD

*EXTRA:  Who do I want to see added to the show?

1. Sam and Dean Winchester would love this place.
2.  The Winter Soldier from Captain America.  He's a badass and would take out half the zombie population in a week.
3.  Also, I would love to see someone get bitten and not turn.  Then we'd know their blood is the cure.  LOL
