I signed up for Celebrate Ebooks Week at the Samhain Cafe from one to three today. It’s about to begin and I’ll be giving out three big prizes. An entire set of Kithran Regenesis books, a set of Crux Survivors books and a set of Beri O’Dell books that I write under my real name-Rinda Elliott. The Beri O’Dell books aren’t erotic novels–they’re urban fantasy. Longer and more intense, more violent and funny…and still kind of sexy.
Because there are a bunch of Samhain readers overseas who can’t be there for the giveaway, I’m offering up another prize here. I’ll leave this up for 24 hours and pick a winner then. Just leave a comment telling me which series you’d like to win and I’ll have the random number generator pick.
Good luck and thanks so much for your interest in my books!
Edit: I had a couple of emails in addition to the question here and yes, I’ll leave this open to all who missed the party. So, it’s 24 hours for a chance to win a set.
I’m getting a few questions about whether or not there will be more Crux Survivors books. At this point, I do plan to write more. I’d love to write a lot more–but things also depend on sale numbers. I do apologize for the long wait between volumes one and two. I had quite a few projects–completed four+ books last year, but a lot of the hold up was changing editors and other things out of my control. Right now, I’m trying to decide who gets the next book first. Two are already in the works, with a third already outlined.
For fans of the Kithran Regenesis series, there are two books yet to come. Origin in April and then Redemption. Origin eARCs have gone out a few places, but I’m holding back sending out too many to keep it from ending up on pirate sites. However, the feedback I’ve received so far is all really great. I think others are enjoying the space pirates as much as I did. I’m still thinking of writing a few adventure novellas for them…
I’ve finally reached a point where I’m not slammed. I’m on deadline for one novel and one short story right now. I’m contemplating what proposals to turn in when it comes to my Dani books. I love, love, love writing these and still plan to do so, but I also have to think of what works for my career.
I will share that I’m hoping Origin is popular. It’s no secret I’m proud of this one. In fact, I fell so hard for my space pirates, I’m contemplating giving them another book or even sexy spin-off adventures. My editor at Samhain fell pretty hard for this book, too, so she might be up for something like that.
I should be getting eARCs within days and I plan to send these out early to those who would like to build up some buzz with me-if you enjoy the book, of course. Unfortunately, I’m only sending it out to those I know won’t share the books because my Kithran and Crux books are on so many share sites, it’s made my job nearly impossible. But I won’t go into that again. I set up a widget on the side to hopefully share with those who don’t understand how hard ebook piracy is on authors. Believe it or not, some don’t get it. I was at a party where a bunch of people were saying they loved sticking it to the man. Um, authors put in long, long hours for very little pay. We aren’t the man.
Lots of people trying to find free copies of my books. This is my job. How I pay my bills. If you like books–any author’s books–don’t search out the illegal free copies. Please. As a reader, I would like my favorite authors to be able to afford to keep writing. I can’t afford to buy every book I want either, so I wait until I can. Sharing copies of our books hurts us.
Remember, if you enjoy Sole Survivors, the best way to keep the series going is to spread the word. Reviews at bookstores and Goodreads help!
In a harsh new world, only she can bring him to life…
Crux Survivors, Book 2
Chase Hawthorne is on the run from a ghost. The shooting that took his little sister and scarred Chase’s face and body has left far deeper scars on his brother Tripp’s soul. Driven to pull up stakes and head for the most haunted place in Louisiana, Chase hopes to prove to Tripp there is no ghost of his twin beckoning from the afterlife.
When he comes upon a young woman fighting off raiders, Chase doesn’t hesitate to help the first female he’s seen in years. And he tries to ignore his instant attraction, hoping Tripp will feel it, too—and emerge from his frightening depression.
Keera has been alone too long, and Chase makes her feel things she never thought she’d feel again. Tripp may be the needier brother, but it’s Chase she wants. Scars and all.
But letting people too close comes with risks. And as they are drawn into the search for a young man’s family, both must accept the possibility that there’s more to life—and love—than simple survival.
Warning: A hero who puts his own needs aside for family. And a woman who’s out to prove there’s no law against a man listening to his body once in a while.
