Would you like this beautiful mug? (Ginormous cat not included). I am planning to give some of these gorgeous mugs to people who help me promote my book. Nothing untoward here. I am not talking about writing reviews in exchange for a mug or anything like that. I am saying, if you read Blood Diva and like it enough to take your mug to work where it will be seen by a 100 clients every day and you will tell them what a totally awesome book it is, I would send you a mug — especially if you live (Read more about how you can get this mug.

Those of you who’ve been following along, know this isn’t my first tango. I’ve sold a book or two under my “real name.” But somehow I’m more excited this time. Maybe because the last “full-length novel” I published was something I’d been carrying around for years. It came close (but no cigar) to grabbing the attention of a very important agent or two. I had “friends” when I started sending….
Blood Diva, the sexy, postmodern, Marie Duplessis vampire novel will be gradually released beginning this Sunday, August 10th. We’re taking it nice and easy for your pleasure.
The Kindle version will be up on Sunday, on sale for a very limited time for 99 cents. The book
will be is available within a couple more days on Nook and Kobo. ( Probably itunes as well.) It will not be “exclusive” or “select’ to anywhere, so epub fans rejoice! 99 cent sale ends soon! (Click “read more” for all the links and information.)
Trying to keep up with my blogging is hard work. While I work on the next really life changing post about Mystic Falls versus Sunnydale or something, I thought I’d just share this video clip I found on the youtube. It’s images of Marie Duplessis and her fictional counterparts. What they do to Verdi here is truly criminal so you might want to turn off the sound, but the visuals really show how the myth of Marie has continued to invade our consciousness.
Blood Diva is now live on NetGalley. For those of you who don’t know, NetGalley is a site where “professional readers” — reviewers, book bloggers, librarians and the rest (YSWIDT) get to download DRM copies of books for FREE. I’m doing this through Patchwork Press Cooperative, so they are managing things, including deciding who is “approved”. I’m staying out of that, but if you are a reviewer and a NetGalley reader who didn’t get approved, let me know and I’ll see what I can do. I’d love some pre-publication reviews, which can be posted on Goodreads. Also if you aren’t following on twitter or facebook, please click those neat little icons in the upper right corner. Thank you much.
