Release day and Author anniversary celebrations #squee

Excuse whilst I hop around like a demented rabbit ... or at least like a demented rabbit with a heavy head cold. You know I'm sure almost every time I release a book someone in my brood is not well! I reckon it's the universe making sure my head doesn't swell so much, I don't fit through my own front door anymore.

*grins*

I am extra excited today though, because not only is it release day for Masks Of A Tiger (Club Ink,3) ...


Blurb:

Neeve doesn't understand why any normal person would choose to wear a collar, like a common house pet. So, the collaring ceremony of her best friend's sister in law is the last place she wants to be, even if the hot men watching her send her insides aflame.
Never one for missing the opportunity to teach a bratty sub manners, Grisha intends to show the fiery little redhead the error of her ways. He doesn't expect to see her drawn to the flame like the proverbial moth. When she hurts herself in ways that even a Dom of his experience finds hard to witness, he knows he needs to help her.
Will their sexual chemistry be enough to chase away their demons and burn away their masks? Or is the submission Grisha demands too much for Neeve to accept?

... today also marks the first anniversary of my being a published author. Yes, that's right, folks. Exactly a year ago, today I released my debut novel Lure Of The Blood!


Blurb:


Marnie's decision to finance her law degree by pole dancing awakens her latent sexuality, and the mysterious stranger lurking in the shadows sends her libido into overdrive.

Realizing her sexy lurker is a vampire is bad enough, but her boss is the alpha wolf of a pack of shifters? Torn between her attraction to both men and surrounded by danger, she has a decision to make. One that will change her life forever.

I'm sure you can see why I am so excited. It's been an incredible year for me. Masks Of A Tiger marks my twentieth published story! And I have three more coming soon. I do have to pinch myself at times. When I started this fantastic journey I had no idea where it would lead, and I am incredibly grateful to all the great people I met on the way.

From my husband and family, to my  awesome critique group, my publishers, editors, cover artists, fellow authors, my friends, you know who you are, and last but by no means you, my readers, I thank you all for making my dream come true.

To know that you enjoy the fevered imaginings translating through my fingertips is humbling and exciting, and just the best job ever!


I realize I sound a bit like an overemotional actress at an Oscar acceptance speech, but hey, if I can't get a bit over emotional today of all days, when can I? And you know us artistic types - we do like to be dramatic.

*winks*

So clink your glasses with me and help me celebrate.



I have several giveways going at the moment. Two with Goodreads, as you can see in the side bar. Do enter if you fancy a signed Print copy.

Grisha himself is giving away a copy of his story here at the Nuthouse Scribblers.

And I am giving away another signed copy of Lure Of The Blood right here. All you have to do is leave me a comment and raise your glass in celebration. I'll pick a winner in a week's time!

Go on, you know you want to!

*dances some more*
