This quarter's winner of the $50 gift card is…..*drum roll*
Sorry, no last name is provided on her account, but I've contacted her via e-mail and Cindy has selected the $50 Barnes & Noble gift card option! Congratulations!!!!!
FYI – Over the last year or so since I started the VIP Club, I've been conducting a quarterly drawing of $50 for those who joined. Everyone who is a member of the club is automatically entered into the drawing every three months. However, most of my very devoted members have expressed that the money is nice, but that's not why they joined. They joined because they love my books, they love vampires and they love the vampire freebies – short stories, graphics and special announcements. So effective immediately, I will no longer be doing the Quarterly Drawings. However…there are other opportunities! Keep reading…
New Subscriber Lists
I've done some reorganization on my site and added a few more lists based on some reader requests. Some people ONLY want to know when I have a New Release. Others want to be part of a Review Team. And many have asked about whether or not I have a Street Team. As such, I've created new lists and you can pick and choose which ones you'd like to subscribe to. CLICK HERE to see information on each of these lists.
With that being said, I've decided to redirect the quarterly funds to the Street Team, which is the core function and purpose of the quarterly drawings – to help me spread the news about my books. The more you participate in the weekly activities, the more chances you have of winning. I'm still ironing out the details, so I won't have anything for Street Team Members right away, but I'm accepting sign-ups now.
How to Sign-up for the New Lists
If you're already a member of my VIP Club, then CLICK HERE to modify your membership options to join any of the above mentioned lists (you may need to login). If you're NOT a member of my VIP Club, then CLICK HERE to sign-up and you'll see the new options available on the registration form.
NOTE: If you ONLY want to receive notifications of new releases and you're already subscribed to the VIP Club, change your subscriptions to New Releases ONLY and DE-SELECT the VIP Club list option when you edit your profile. I'll be double checking as people enroll for this list, to be sure this is the ONLY list you're subscribed to. If you're new to subscribing and you want this option, ONLY select this option. Thank you!
Where is Book 5??????
I've been getting this question a lot and I know you all are waiting for the next exciting and sexy adventure for Broderick and Davina. The good news is, I have the entire book plotted! The bad news is, I don't want to start writing it until I have Book 6 plotted. I'm not exactly sure what Book 6 has in store yet and I want to be sure I've planted little tidbits in Book 5 for properly setting up the novel.
Unfortunately, I don't have a release date yet. Just so you all know, I've had to put my writing aside for a few months. We're in the middle of prepping our house to sell and we'll be moving. My mother – the Home Improvement Queen – was here for the entire month of June to help me and though we got a lot done…I still have a LOT of work to do yet. I'm talking tearing out ceilings, knocking down walls, and remodeling the kitchen and bathroom so we can hope to make a decent profile on the house to help us afford the move.
Where are we moving to? I'll have to make that announcement as soon as we know. I have no idea how long it will take me to do all this and my husband is only available on the weekends to help me do the real hefty work because he works at least 9 hours a day and commutes 6 hours a day (3 hours EACH WAY). Precious darlin' is tuckered out by the time he gets home and I don't blame him. As such, the rest of the work will be up to me, much to his disappointment and dismay. He wants to be here so badly, but can't get the time off work. 🙁
Sneak Peak – Midnight Savior
However, I CAN give you a sneak peak of Book 5. Now remember, this is first draft stuff, so it's far from polished. This is fairly close to the opening of the book. *Drum roll*
I'm anxious to hear your comments, so leave them below and I look forward to interacting with you!!! Until then…
That's my two pence..
