A Rose By Any Other Name Cover Reveal Signup!

RoseSmallBanner

Hello all! With the craziness of the THIRDS series releases, I’ve fallen a tad behind on a few things.

On Aug 14th I have the cover reveal of my roaring twenties historical A Rose By Any Other Name (Julius’s book from Roses in the Devil’s Garden) and I’m looking for any fellow authors, blogger, reviewers who’d be willing to host the reveal.

There will be a rafflecopter giveaway as well. It by no means has to be your only post of the day. I send everything html format, so all the images, codes, everything is embedded so all you have to do is copy and paste into your blog’s HTML or Text editor. If you would prefer I send the elements separate, I can do that too, just state it in the box provided.

If you’re interested, please sign up using the form below. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/10d1f_BnolDNE3vzB9BCJMigC2DRrCmiPKokbmNULwMY/viewform?usp=send_form

Thank you all so much!

Writerly Things & THIRDS Update

Hello all! I know blogging has been a little slow lately, but that’s down to the THIRDS, and the way in which these guys have totally TAKEN OVER MY LIFE. I’ve received first edits for Hell & High Water (Book 1). Blood & Thunder (Book 2) is with my publisher and I hope to hear back soon. Rack & Ruin (Book 3) I’m currently working on, along with Rise & Fall (Book 4).

I’ve set myself some tough deadlines, but I’m really enjoying it. These fellas have crawled under my skin pretty quickly. After the 4 initial books,  there will be side stories with other pairings–the first, second, and third of which I’ve already added to my schedule, but I hope to write more Dex & Sloane, because their relationship should continue to grow beyond the 4 books. I’ve done artwork for the website which will launch as soon as I’m done with that, and have more solid info on Hell & High Water, like blurb and such. I created three logos which are the THIRDS organization logo (below), and the two patches the team wears on their uniforms, one being their squad’s patch: Destructive Delta, and one being their law enforcement patch for their division, New York City. There will be plenty of swag with the logos. I’ll be revealing the other two logos soon.

THIRDS logo 500px

So that’s the THIRDS main logo displaying the organization’s full name, motto, and in the center the representation of the unity between Therians and Humans. The motto itself translates to: With United Powers, which is what the THIRDS is all about: seeking justice for all, no matter the species, through the union of Human and Therian.

If you’re not sure what Therians are, they’re the shifters in the THIRDS series. In this world, shifters are not referred to as such, and instead they’re a different species referred to as Therians– which comes from Therianthropy: the change from human into animal.

For the THIRDS, I wanted to keep it as realistic as possible (for shifters anyway), and so the birth of this species is scientific rather than fantasy. And the THIRDS is an organization that was put in place to enforce the law, seek justice, and protect this new species, leaving Human law enforcement to deal with Human crimes, though since the two species aren’t segregated, it means the THIRDS often have to deal with Human perpetrators if said Human commits a crime against a Therian citizen.

I’ll be going more into the THIRDS, what it is, how they operate soon, but I loved putting this organization together, and it leaves loads of room for all kinds of stories, since there are three departments within the organization: Defense, Recon, and Intel. Each one has a different type of agent working for it, and these agents work in small squads with teams of two where a Human agent and Therian agent are paired up. Although the organization enforces the law, they’re a military organization for the government, so it operates a little different to the Human police force. I’m happy to answer any questions related to the series, though if it’s a spoiler, my answer may be somewhat vague.

Now onto other things. For anyone who doesn’t know, I’ll be attending RainbowCon at the end of April, and taking part in two panels:
Thursday, April 17th 1 PM Marketing 101
Thursday, April 17th 4 – 4.30 PM Author Q&A
Friday, April 18th 3 PM Roundtable Discussion  on Historicals

I have some wonderful folks with me for both these panels, and I’m really looking forward to it. If you’re attending, make sure you say hello! If you’re looking for a detailed schedule of events, you can find it here: http://rainbowconference.org/schedule.aspx

The M/M Romance group’s writing event has arrived, and although I took part in the last two, I’m afraid I won’t be able to this year as it falls during the wrapping up of Rise & Fall, and conflicts with my writing schedule for Vixen’s Valor: Book 3 in the North Pole City Tales. I really want to make the North Pole City Tales a yearly Christmas thing, so I didn’t want to skip this year, especially with quite a few folks looking forward to the next installment. Hopefully I can make the event next year, though I can’t wait for all the great stories that are sure to come out of it this year!

And for those wondering when the heck I’m going to get to Hunter’s book. He’s on my writing schedule for this year, though it will mean the earliest the book will be released is early next year. Hunter’s books is going to be a full length novel since we have quite a few characters, plus a couple of new ones. It’ll be longer than An Intrepid Trip to Love, and I hope to release it through my lovely publisher so hopefully, it’ll be worth the wait. I’m super grateful to everyone and their patience. <3
