Within the Shadows of Mortals is Now Available!

Whew!

After three rounds with the formatting gremlins and lots of caffeine, Within the Shadows of Mortals is now available for your downloading pleasure! The Kindle version should be up in the next few days at Amazon and I'll be posting that link when it's available.

For now, you can buy the book at Smashwords here.

There's an option to download a sample of it and I made it so potential readers can check out half the book. This option won't last for long but I thought I would give the early birds a little something special. ;-)

Today marks the end of the Cate Masters Spotlight contest. If you still want to enter for some freebies, don't forget to stop by the blog here and comment!

I have a couple more projects to tackle again that have been on hold for the past few days but I think I will catch some relaxation time before I dive back in.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Linkspam: Way Cool Links You Can't Pass Up! (*Updated with new free ebook link)

Hey folks!

Thought I'd share some awesome links I came across. It's been awhile since I had a link parade and now's a great time to dive right back in.




First, the big "squee!" news. My publisher Freya's Bower/Wild Child Publishing was recently showcased in the May/June 2010 edition of Writer's Digest under the Small Press Spotlight section. Very cool! I was also jazzed to see One Evening in London spotlighted under the caption box of "What Stands Out & Why". If you're interested in submitting to FB or WCP, definitely pick up a copy of the current Writer's Digest mag to check out the interview with publisher Marci Baun. A digital issue is available for purchase online.

Anne Lamott, author of Bird by Bird, an excellent book on writing (that I highly recommend for aspiring writers) is the featured author in the current issue.




Coyote Con - Drollerie Press is among my fave publishers because I've come across really wonderful read…

Guest Blogger: Teresa D'Amario Celebrates her new release Dark Succession! Out now from Freya's Bower

First, let me thank Rae for hosting my release party! Rae is an awesome artist and author in her own right so it's an honor to be here.

Wow. I can't believe it. It's finally here! The release ofDark Succession. The story of Ryland, who was introduced in my first book, SheWolf. It's hard to believe it has finally arrived. When we first met Ryland, he was not a very nice guy. In fact, one thing which holds true with him is he gives a very BAD first impression. I have to admit, the first time my critique partners met Ryland in Dark Succession, 4 out of 5 of them said "I don't like him". Good, I thought. Because Ryland likes it when people don't like him. In fact, he seems to thrive on it.

As a bad boy, Ryland fits the bill. He's got hutzpah, that's for sure. He hides his feelings beneath an aura of aggressive masculinity, refusing to acknowledge the softness we all know must hide beneath those glaring eyes and gruff manners. When he …

The Iron Daughter (Iron Fey #2) by Julie Kagawa

2010 - Young Adult Reading Challenge #9

The Iron King was a book that came way out of left field and took me off guard. I'm a recent fan of Young Adult books, especially of the speculative variety, and being a fan of practically anything fae related I was quick to jump on the book. Julie Kagawa's intro into the world of the Iron Fey was addictive and after finishing the first, I couldn't wait to dive back into the world to see what the cast of characters was up to in their next adventure.
