Meet Up with Other Indie Authors

Moonday Mania

a blog for a snowy day

It’s cold outside! And baby, I only want to stay in and eat warm foods and snuggle by the fire. But yesterday I put on my sexy new boots and hauled my car up to the North Metro Area of Denver to participate in my very first Meet-Up. Meet Up is a website where you can find like-minded people and network, for just about anything under the sun. Interested in Primal Cooking? There’s a Meet Up group for you.

This one was set up for Indie Authors, and it turned out to be a nice group of people, of which I knew a heavy third. That’s because it was also posted on my local RWA chapter group, so several of us showed up. It was nice to meet new people and to meet authors in other genres, but one thing I noticed was that most of the romance writers really knew their stuff. Their publishing stuff, that is. 😉

Romance authors are ahead of the curve on marketing, pricing, and just getting our books out there. We were some of the first to jump on the indie bandwagon, but more than that, we’re enthusiastic sharers of information. That was pretty clear at the meeting. (Yes, I have to remind myself to not share so much!).

Are there other authors in other genres who know a lot about publishing? Absolutely, and we had a few of them there. But we also had a lot of new people, and that was nice too. It was interesting to see who’s writing what and how far they are in their writing journey.

The best thing for me from my Meet Up experience?

I always feel so behind in my life and in my writing, but when I started to talk about what I’ve done and where I’m going, I realized that I’m ahead of the curve! I’ve published six books in the last few years, and by the end of this year I’ll have at least four more out. That’s pretty incredible. I also know what I’m talking about. Just a few years ago that would have been me asking all those questions. Or, in reality, sitting there wondering what to say because I didn’t know enough to know what to ask.

Another great thing for me is that I think I’ll be joining a few of those fellow authors and spending Fridays writing. I’ve needed a dedicated day for writing for some time, and Friday’s have become it. But for me, dedicated usually means half the day. But they’re there writing all day!

Can I do that? I don’t know, but I’m going to try.

As I drove to the Meet Up I thought, I should be spending my time writing instead of socializing, but now that I’ve gone I think it was a good way to spend my time. It was a Sunday, and I never write on Sunday’s anyway because it’s a busy weekend day, so I didn’t miss any writing time. And the benefits I received from going and socializing with other like minded writers? Priceless!

Do you socialize with people in your area that have common interests? Have you tried a Meet Up group?

Let me know what your experience has been with networking. Where have you gone? Who did you meet? Was it fun?

The Dark Huntsman

A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court

sneak peak

 

She used her body, her anger, and her fear. Anger at the Faery Queen for the constant harassment and extermination of her family and her tribe. Fear of what came next, what might be riding on the coattails of the sunset.

Pulsing with power, she paced deeper and deeper into the labyrinth, static lifting her long black hair into a crackling wild nimbus. She pulled and twisted the vibrant orange and red of her anxiety into the alchemy of the earth’s brown and green energy, weaving them together into an invisible net.

Each measured step layered power into the fabric of her spell. Each movement of the athame directed the energy where it needed to go. Just as darkness dipped its toes into the valley, she turned the last curve into the double spiral’s center.

Her rage and fear coalesced into the final strands of the spell leaving her shaking and exhausted as the last of the afterglow faded from the sky, a stunning show of deep purple on grey. A sonorous quiet descended. No birds, no coyotes. Just the wind sending small trails of skittering leaves through the labyrinth. Prickles of anticipation trembled on her bare spine.

It would be here soon. It was coming fast. And it was coming for her.

Trina raced out the door, forgetting again about the broken bottom porch step. The rotting wood gave under her foot. She hit hard on her hands and knees. The heavy duffle bag swung down and slammed into her arm, tipping open, the sacred ritual tools scattering into the dirt.

Her throat swelled tight. She swallowed back forbidden tears, sat up, and brushed off the tiny rocks embedded in her flesh.

“Damn it!”

She didn’t have time for this.

Scrambling around in the dirt and weeds, she grabbed the precious tools, tossing them like discarded toys into the duffle. Why hadn’t the Goddess Gifted her with time manipulation? Then she wouldn’t have to worry about all this crap.

Ignoring the gorgeous dusty golds and ambers of fall in rural Wyoming, she hauled the loaded duffle up the rapidly darkening hill. Something was coming to the peaceful valley. Cassie had dreamed it, and even if her dreams were subject to interpretation the meaning had been clear. Tonight at sunset, the queen’s dog would descend.

A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court

Pain ripped through him. He struggled to stay conscious and ignore the excruciating messages shrieking in his arm from being hauled like a sack of grain along the rough floor. The troll dropped him on the stones, paused and opened an iron bound door. Logan tried to make his stiff muscles work, managing only to scrape and bang his limbs on the doorframe as the troll seized him and shoved him into the cell. He landed hard, his face grinding into the slimy stones. Curling instinctively into a ball, he managed to protect his gut from the last hard kick of the troll’s boot landing on his dislocated shoulder. His lungs seized up, his vision went black, and his head exploded into bright white stars.

The cell door clanged shut.

He sucked in slow aching breaths as the heavy footsteps receded down the corridor and reminded himself that he’d be out soon. And then he’d face the queen.

Fifteen years in this hell hole and the bitch thought he’d bow to her wishes.

He worked at unclenching his muscles. First his fists, then his jaw. Then each sore and aching muscle until he could sit up, his left arm hanging at an awkward angle. He guessed he wasn’t as ready to die as he’d thought. His body might be in terrible shape, but his mind was still sharp. He’d do what he had to do. Kill, cheat, steal. It wasn’t as if he hadn’t crossed lines before. But this time…

This time he would take down the Faerie Queen of the Black Court. No matter the price he paid. He reached up with his right arm, got a good grip on his left triceps and pulled. The shoulder ground and popped back into place, and Logan passed out from the pain.

Sudden light burned into Logan’s face and his eyes flinched shut. He forced his shaking arm up and hid behind it as he tried to remember where he was. Cold seeped into his aching body from the uneven stone floor as he stayed under his arm and hid from the torchlight, staggered at the realization that he was alive. Weak, wobbly, and defenseless. But alive.

A heavy hobnailed boot kicked him in the side. “Here ‘e is sir.”

He groaned and curled into a ball, peering up through long matted and tangled hair at a heavyset chuckling troll with only one working eye. “I got ‘im out of the hole yesterday, but ‘e’s still not in good shape.” Another rusty laugh came from the troll. “But I guess that’s to be expected after fifteen year’n the hole.”

Fifteen years. Had it been so long?

Logan barely heard the troll’s dissertation on oubliettes, prisoners, and rates of death. Had he been in hibernieth, the Elvetian form of stasis, for fifteen years? What had happened to his friends and family? What had happened to the prince between now and the day their world had collapsed? The day he’d been stuffed into his tiny damp prison?

He pushed up on burning arms, collapsing in a panting heap. The troll laughed and kicked him again. Logan lay on the hard stone mentally apologizing to his clan and liege for his weaknesses. He had no strength to face whatever death was to come. His fate was sealed.

The Dark Huntsman Book Birthday Celebration

Fantastic Fridays

celebrating one year of fantasy romance

One year ago I published The Dark Huntsman, A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court, and it’s been fantasy ever since! I’ve truly enjoyed the experience of self-publishing, choosing a cover, getting to control my edits, and deciding everything from when my book comes out to how to promote it. Since last October I’ve published two additional books, Prince by Blood and Bone, A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court, and Ghosts of Christmas Past, the first in my Haunted Holiday’s series of contemporary Gothic romance novels. And I have more coming. Broken Mirror, book three of the fantasy romances will be out in 2015 (I know you are all waiting!) and I also have a little backstory novella in the works that is a companion to the Tales of the Black Court series that should be out around the same time.

Whew! That’s a busy year. And to celebrate I’m having a party!

That’s right! The party goes on all the way through the end of October with all kinds of Halloween Tricks and Treats. All month I’m participating in blog hops, scavenger hunts, and Facebook Parties, with amazing prizes, including free e-books and gift cards. Check it out, starting with the Bake, Love, Write Scavenger Hunt opening October 6th!

Virtual Bookstore in Second Life

Thursday’s Bite

a blog exploring new romance venues

the book nook in second lifeLast winter I placed The Dark Huntsman, a Fantasy Romance of the Black Court on the shelves of The Book Nook, a virtual book store in Second Life run by fellow fantasy romance author Sharon Clare. If you are unfamiliar with Second Life, it’s a place online where you create an avatar of yourself and you can visit locations all over the world, different countries, cities, museums. In this case The Book Nook is a romance only store located in virtual London, Victoria. Isn’t that cool? My book is available in a virtual bookstore in London!

The Dark Huntsman pic_002 (2)

You can take your avatar and walk down the street in London, and walk right into the bookstore. It looks just like this, except these were taken December 2013, so I doubt Sharon has left the snowman and holiday rug out. When you click on the book you can read a blurb and there is a purchase link that takes you directly to Amazon, so you can buy the book. It’s just like buying a book in a real bookstore except you make the final purchase through your Amazon account and it shows up on your e-reader.The Dark Huntsman pic_001 (2)

 

 

This month I added Prince by Blood and Bone to the virtual scene and I’m pretty excited to see it up on the shelves.

Golden Quill Finalist For a Second Year in a Row!

Thursdays Bite

a paranormal romance celebration blog

the dark huntsman 2014 golden quill finalistWoot! The Dark Huntsman is a Finalist in the Fantasy/Sci-Fi category of the Desert Rose RWA Golden Quill 2014 contest. (Say it ten times fast!). If you still haven’t read my fantasy romance, The Dark Huntsman, check out the Prince by Blood and Bone Blog tour for opportunities to win an e-copy. Several of the sites are hosting giveaways, and there are lots of chances to win.

I’m having a terrific 2014. My hot paranormal romance, Goldi and the Bear, is a finalist in the Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence and the second book in the Tales of the Black Court, Prince by Blood and Bone, is having an amazing blog tour with several five star (or fangs, or paws) reviews. It seems that readers like it even more than The Dark Huntsman, and that’s really good news for me since I was super stressed about it being just as good a book. I guess it was worth taking that extra time to make it right. 🙂

You can still enter to win one of five print copies of Prince by Blood and Bone on Goodreads, so add it to you Goodreads Shelf and enter to win!

I’m not doing an additional blog today, because I’m busy putting the final touches on my New Adult Gothic romance, Ghosts of Christmas Past, before I send it off to the first editor. If you would like to read an actual blog then hop on over to the Indy Book Fairy to read an interview with me HERE.

Happy May to all!
