It's Nearly September . . .

Vampire's Trill blog is up, but book is not yet released.
 Hey, a BIG thank you to my newest followers!
And just as a side note, the contest is still open for an autographed copy of my first book, Vampire Ascending.
So, you still have a chance to win. One book to one winner, all you have to do is be a follower and comment at the contest blog. I will announce winners on Sept. 1st by 4 pm central time. So if you want to check back then do so!

Okay, got that out of the way.

My Birthday:

I had a wonderful birthday. Had gobs of people wishing me happy birthday over on my facebook page. It was wonderful and I thank all that have come by and wished me a great day.

My husband took me out to a great place in a nearby town, as we sat there under those pendant lights, and our flatware wrapped in black cloth napkins, and Old Blue-eyes crooning from a speaker, I thought we were in a Chicago 5-star restaurant. The meal was fantastic, and we enjoyed it--until the bill came, but we'd do it again! Probably dress up a little more the next time!

Book News & Updates:

As some of you may know I've been working on my fourth novel (in fact I'm simultaneously writing on page 127 while doing this blog--talk about multi-tasking!), Vampire's Trill, while waiting for the second novel to come out. My publisher has given me September for a release--but no date as yet. That will come, eventually. Lots of things to hammer out, I'm sure, and I'm waiting for the edits to get to me and I'll have to go through and give my okay on them.

I thank all of you who have read the first book, Vampire Ascending--and have left messages either at my facebook page, or at one of my blogs. I've had some people leave a comment at the end of the first chapter of Vampire's Trill. One was hopeful that the book was out already, and was looking forward to it! I've been working on the books new blog, and you can view it HERE, if you wish. I have the first chapter up, plus, on the side bars, I have the characters' descriptions. This will get you excited, if not pumped up for the release of my next book--oh, and of course you know I'll have a contest to win copies for when it does come out.

For those of you who have not,yet read Vampire Ascending, you're in for a ride. My book is not your typical vampire novel with the kick-ass heroine. I like to call Sabrina strong a "reluctant hero" who learns the ins and outs of the vampire world, and although finds herself attracted to a few of them in this first novel, she learns who she can and can't trust eventually. She is a Legend In The Making, because things begin to happen in the second book and heat up in the third and fourth. If you would like to visit the first book's blog and see some reviews/interviews from people who have read it, excerpts, character descriptions, and synopsis, I invite you to go HERE.

And lastly, my book will eventually be available in the Apple iBookstore, and other electronic readers, including the iPad.

At last contact, my publisher is located in Main, and the track of Irene is going right through there, I think on Monday. Everyone out there has/is braced for this storm, and I hope everyone has taken the necessary preparations to be safe and the aftermath of it all up and down the coast be minimal.

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
