#IndiePrideDay Book Party

1

joel and elend at bar color smallIt’s my party and I can read if I want to.

Somehow you ended up at a party. It’s loud, noisy and people are chattering. The music is terrible. Are people dancing or just pushing each other around? I’d rather pee outside than use this bathroom. I wish I was home with my cat and something good to read.

Let’s try something different. It can be as quiet as you’d like. You may attend alone (or maybe with a pet) and your attire, if any, is at your discretion. Are you under a shady tree? You don’t have to interact with anyone…even me. You can stay in bed or your favorite chair. The best part is that you can hook up with a fresh new book at a steal – instantly. Welcome to my book party.

This is my first time celebrating #IndiePrideDay, and I wanted to do something really special. I wanted to not only offer new fans a great deal on my book series, but I wanted to show my established fans and followers some of the fantastic selections available from other independently published authors. That is after all what this day is all about: appreciating indie authors and our readers. As a token of my personal gratitude to this movement of talented individuals and to the folks of good taste who recognize us, I am offering The Sick Rose Vampires book series at a DEEP discount.cropped-bogo1.jpg

Now if you’ve already bit into The Sick Rose Vampires and need a new novel fix, I’ve selected some of the best titles published independently in the genres of paranormal, romance, fantasy, and VAMPIRES! Yes, vampires are a genre at my book party! Grab one or ALL THE BOOKS. It would be helpful to have a Kindle or other e-reader, but it is not necessary. Many of these authors are sharing amazing deals on e-books. That means you can get indie books instantly!

Sharon Lipman’s Bound to Blackwood is available for FREE all weekend!

Would you surrender your soul for the love of the King? Lena, a vampire and a Guardian of the Order, has been honour-bound to protect human souls all her life. Acting first and thinking second is what’s saved her skin time and again in the war against the Fallen, but her disregard for orders soon catches up with her when her boss is seriously injured. Forced to take responsibility for her actions, Lena is thrust into the path of her very own kryptonite; Thorn. The raw power of his soul calls to her and his mere presence lights a fire within her that she cannot contain. With Vampire magic waning and the race in crisis, can either of them afford to ignore Nature’s call? If they do, the future of the race is in jeopardy. If they don’t, they will both lose the most precious part of themselves. Their souls.

Lynne Murray offering The Falstaff Vampire Ghosts discounted to 99 cents starting July 1st

13501621_10209029636194772_1095369102842902340_nMovie star Trinity Scott and rogue vampire Sir John Falstaff wrestle with a crafty demon, a mob of paparazzi and a horde of hungry ghosts—not to mention the food truck owner’s zombie brother-in-law. The quest for answers leads to Lost Ranch, an isolated Northern California town with a tragic past and a deadly present.

July 1st is the release day of Diamonds Fall by Rebecca M. Gibson

Diamonds Fall 2nd Ed Ebook Cover [126860]“She noticed, as if in a dream, a single diamond hair comb fall to the floor. The sparkling jewels landed face down in the mud.”
Annabel Maria Hoddington is the epitome of high society. She has everything money can buy and as befits a lady of her station, is engaged to the richest bachelor in England. However, on the day of her eighteenth birthday – her perfect future on the brink of fulfilment – she is abducted and held hostage in an isolated village, where she finds herself entrapped in the harsh world of poverty. Forced to live amongst three mentally scarred siblings, she must adapt to her new, sinister world…or die.

indiprideday992016 [141603]

All five books available in Sonya Ray’s The Three Crowns series are marked down to $.99 cents through July 4th

sweet tea [141598]Elizabeth Lancaster’s life appears normal. In Lizzie’s world of horses, friends, boundaries, and sweet tea, there is no room for paranormal beliefs, though secrets loom around her in the shadows nonetheless. But before Lizzie can begin to understand the power of these secrets, or the plan fate has in store for her, Lizzie must try and discover what lies within the mysteries of her own heart.
When a mysterious stranger comes to Fox Meadows, fate steps out of the shadows. Unexplainable events begin to occur in Lizzie’s life, as well as in her dreams, creating fear, yet eliciting in her a strange notion of wonder at the possibilities. But Lizzie’s eyes are unable to believe what she sees. Her lack of experience with affairs of the heart cause her to mistrust her emotions. She convinces herself that there is an explanation, and these bizarre, and even frightening occurrences must somehow be tied to her unexpected crush on her best friend Rob Jacobs, and her intense draw to the intoxicating stranger, Cain Atchley. Lizzie’s path to self-discovery becomes twisted, dark, and at times, wicked. Caught between the passions of two men, Lizzie must follow the path laid before her, and wake the mysteries sleeping in her soul. Her journey begins with the story of The Three Crowns.

Relative Strangers: A Modern Vampire Story is $1.99 from Helen Treharn

RSeBook [145032]Meet Sophie Morgan… practical, Welsh, prone to occasional profanity, and seemingly a vampire magnet. Sophie Morgan is 23 and has always done the right thing. She’s caused no stress for her family, worked hard through university, has taken a successful leap onto the career ladder and nurtured a reasonably healthy bank balance. It’s no small surprise then when mini-break to Antwerp, she pursues a pair of thieves who steal her friend’s bag. But this is only the start of her world being turned upside down. Sophie soon learns that vampires exist, her neighbors back home aren’t what they seem and new boyfriends can be found in the strangest of situations.

Relative Strangers is the first in a new vampire series with a distinctly British flavor, but which will appeal to everyone. Reviews call it “a vampire tale with bite”, with “brilliant characters that draw you in” and a very fresh take on the genre. Read it now to find out what reviewers are raving about.

The Crown of Stones by C. L. Schneider will be on Kindle Countdown for .99 each on 7/1

indiepride [145656]Ian Troy is one of the Shinree, a fallen people with an inherent addiction to magic. Scorned and reviled for the deadly side of their spells, the Shinree are bred as slaves. Their magic is suppressed by drugs and used only as it serves the purposes of the other races.
Descended from a long line of soldiers, Ian is conscripted into the Rellan army and made to fight in their longstanding conflict against the ruthless Langorian invaders. The downfall of Rella imminent, Ian goes against orders and turns to the Crown of Stones, an ancient Shinree relic of untold power. Ignorant of its true purpose, Ian uses the crown to end the war, and pays a terrible price.
A decade later, still tortured by the aftermath of that day, Ian lives as a bounty hunter in self-imposed exile. Having renounced his magical heritage, he curbs his obsession with a steady stream of wine and regret. He struggles to put it all behind him, until a fateful encounter with a pretty assassin brings Ian’s past crashing into the present.
Targeted by a rogue Shinree, and a ruthless old enemy, Ian is forced to use magic again. His deadly addiction is rekindled and his life of isolation is brought to a swift end. With the land he gave up everything to protect once more in jeopardy, and his people’s future at stake, Ian becomes embroiled in a violent race for control of the Crown of Stones. To save the realms and those he cares for, Ian must embrace the thing he fears most: his own power.

I have been having a blast working with #IndieBooksBeSeen. It is a great network of self-published authors, and I’ve been having fun being a part of their catalog for 2016. I am so proud to be able to share this catalog at book-signings and provide it for free to my readers. It’s a beautiful catalog with a myriad of book selections.

#IndieBooksBeSeen is a movement that comes with it’s very own holiday that I am pleased to be participating in this year. It’s a day for us indie authors to take over social media, brag about our work, and offer special deals to our readers. Last year #IndiePrideDay was a top trending topic on Twitter. Let’s do it again, shall we?
