Help me make Something Wild Permanently FREE on Amazon

There's a trick to getting books listed as FREE on Amazon. ;) I'd like to offer Something Wild to readers at no cost, you know because you guys are awesome. But, I need your help to do that.

If Something Wild is reported as FREE on other vendors, Amazon will "price match" it, making it a freebie for everyone.

Here's how you do it.

1. Follow this link to Something Wild on Amazon.

2. Scroll to the bottom until you see "TELL US ABOUT A LOWER PRICE," and click it.

3. A window will pop up asking where you saw the lower price. Select "Website."

4. Now, copy and paste either of these links from Smashwords and KOBO. Please be sure to put 0.00 as the price and 0.00 as the shipping price.

That's all there is to it. :) Then, we wait to see Amazon price match this bad boy and make it FREE.

Once it's price matched for FREE, be sure to download it! It's a short, sexy werewolf story with a few free samples thrown in at the end. ;)

Thanks for reading, and thanks for your help!

The power of positivity

I don't know about anyone else, but it's been one of those weeks for me. I'm not going to get overly personal, but I will share some random positive things. Why? Because it makes me feel better. Maybe it will help some of you out there, who are also stressed out, to feel better as well. Get ready for some ridiculous crap. LOL

These are in no particular order, and they aren't "about" anything in particular either. This is just a random collection of things that make me smile. I hope they make you smile also.

Because everyone needs to feel like a unicorn sometimes. :)

It's Batman on a unicorn. It needs no explanation.

We are now ready for the dookie apocalypse. LOL

Why am I posting this?

This is me in Target. LOL 

I love horror movies, therefore, this is funny. LOL

Hell, yeah! 

This is my mouse pad. Really. 

Because one does not simply stop making Mordor jokes. ;)

Anger management issues. LOL

I have laughed way too much at this.

Because unicorns are awesome. 

This is what I need to look at every day. 

This concludes my randomness. I hope it helped. LOL

Please do not send me your story/plot ideas

I realize that this is a given for most people. LOL I am thrilled to think that my words might inspire someone else. If that's the case, that's awesome. However, if you feel that strongly about the concept, I encourage you to write your own book.

I have taken bits and pieces of mythology and folklore and done my own thing with it. I will continue to twist things in my own way.

If I lived for 200 years, I could never write all the ideas that I already have. I have enough characters that keep me up at night.

For legal reasons, I cannot accept story concepts from anyone else. No matter how great they are, or how long they've been on your mind. That is YOUR intellectual material, not mine. I cannot write about your ideas. Sorry.

Not sure about the newsletter

MadMimi has a feature that allows me to keep sending the newsletter (in the hopes of it being delivered to everyone) without re-sending it to people who have already received it. That's pretty neat. The problem is, only 6 people have actually received it, and I've sent it out 4 times. Plus, I've heard from other people who never received a confirmation email.

*sigh* I'm seriously considering terminating this newsletter. I know everyone says that I need to have one. BUT, people can subscribe to my blog, and I always share any important (and some not so important) stuff here. :)

I'm going to leave it for now. But, I'm considering just telling people to subscribe to my blog instead of worrying with that glitchy newsletter. Just wanted to let everyone know. 

On a different note, the new series is coming along well. I finished book 3 a few days ago. Next week I plan to start the 4th and likely final book in this new series. :)

Getting lots of new stories lined up for next year

It's been a little while since my last post. That's because I've been writing. A lot. LOL My hands started to hurt again a few days ago. So, in order to write, I'm wrapped in ACE bandages and Tiger Balm.  In the past 2 months, I've finished the last Lilith book (which is huge), wrote another short novel for an anthology, finished the first book in a new series, and am almost finished with the second. No wonder I'm hurting.

This is my favorite month of the whole year. And as usual with the beginning of fall, I seem to come alive. As soon as the temperature drops, I feel like a million bucks.Right now, I'm listening to the sound of rain and anticipating the temperature drop in a few hours. Ahhh. I freaking love October. I've got my Halloween decorations out. All that's left to do is hang a few ghosts in my front yard.

Before I go, I wanted to share a little bit of what I'm working on for next year. Remember me mentioning the Bound by Blood series that I wanted to write? I've been making notes on it since 2012, but the books are finally happening. I've finished the first and will probably finish the second by this weekend. I'm hoping to finish the series sometime in January and have it be (hopefully) 6 books when complete.

Here are the covers for the first 3. We did a photo shoot specifically for this story. I couldn't find anything that I felt suited the look of the main character, and the mood/tone of the tale. So, I decided to create something original. With the help of my photographer, Stacey Mixon, here's what we came up with.

As I told someone recently, this one's got all kinds of stuff. Half-demon werewolf hunters, hot werewolves, witches, dragons, sorcerers, trolls, family curses, true love, miracles. LOL

Thankfully, the person I said this to is also a fan of The Princess Bride and got that joke. I can't wait to finish this series and share it with my readers. I think you're really going to dig it. :)
