Join the LGBTQ Push Back Charity Giveaway!

LGBTQBannerFB

Hello all! I'm proud to be one of the many folks joining in the LGBTQ Push Back Charity Giveaway. What is this event? It's a way for us to give a little something back to the charities that give so much. I'm sure many of you have heard the story about the pizza parlor that received a million dollars in donations through GoFundMe for refusing to cater an LGBT wedding. Obviously, the pizza isn't what this is about, and although the refusal to serve LGBT people in the name of religious belief is truly upsetting to me, but I think what I find most upsetting is the fact these people received a million dollars in support. There is so much wrong happening in our world, in our country, hunger, death, despair, abuse, violence, suicides, that this to me is the worse kind of blow. These people are prepared to throw all this money at a pizza parlor in support of their beliefs when they could be supporting those who truly need help. How much food could that millions dollars have bought? How many beds? How many winter coats, shoes, blankets? I could go on and on, but instead, I want to spread the massage of love and joining in to support folks who actually care about helping others.

Authors, review bloggers, and publishers have come together to offer their support. Instead of spending $5 on a book in the next two weeks, give that $5 to an LGBT charity of your choice, tell Diverse Reader about it in their comments, and go into the draw to win a book from one of the participating donors. If you can’t make a donation then please take a moment to share a charity’s links and tell us about the charity instead.

Three fundraisers have been set up to counter the effects of Indiana’s SB 101. #Pizza4Equality is aiming to match the money raised by the pizza parlor, with all donations going to Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund. Another fundraiser is aiming to raise $100,000 for Indiana Youth Group. Planting Peace hopes to raise $100,000 to provide beds for homeless LGBT people.

I've made my donation to the True Colors Fund and am providing an eBook to Diverse Reader for the giveaway. Together we can prove that love conquers hate. Check out the amazing post at Diverse Reader here: http://diversereader.blogspot.com/2015/04/lgbtq-push-back-charity-giveaway.html

Settling In and Updates

Hello all! Hope you're having a lovely week. Well the move is over and I'm finally getting back into the swing of things. We closed on the old house the same day as Healing Hunter's Heart released and everything moved at breakneck speed after that. During the chaos of moving, I had several days in a hotel while waiting for things to move along for the close on the new house. I was prepared with the notebooks and tech I figured I might need, including mobile WiFi Hotspot just in case. Luckily the hotel had free internet access which kept me from feeling completely disconnected. Everything else was in storage. I also had furbaby-who's-not-so-baby-anymore Olly with me. I was a little worried about how he'd take to life on the road, but he was such a good boy.

In a way having to wait, along with my somewhat limited internet access, helped me focus on writing and getting some work done. Considering I only had to push back one of my titles since the deadline fell just as things were crazy with selling, packing, house hunting, and all that fun stuff, I still managed to make two of my three deadlines. I think I managed pretty good. I was worried moving would wreak havoc on my schedule, but I managed pretty well. I'm still catching up on emails and few odds and ends, but thankfully everything's settled down, which means I've been able to take part in a few events I wasn't sure I'd be able to manage because of the move.

July 17th & 18th (Friday and Saturday) - I'll be attending Rainbow Con. Although I won't be taking part in the panels or the signing, I will be there hanging out and just having fun, so be sure to find me to say hello, chat, or if you'd like a book signed. I'll also be tagging along on the Big Cat Rescue Trip because I've been dying to go and omg, how can I not?! Big kitties!

RT Booklovers Convention 2016 - I'm taking the plunge and attending next year's RT Booklovers Convention in Las Vegas. I'm super nervous but also very excited! More info on that soon.

Updates and Announcements:

Rise & Fall (THIRDS, Book 4) is finally out on audiobook. Mark Westfield did another fabulous job with the guys. It's available from Audible.com | Amazon | iTunes | Dreamspinner Press.

There will be a cover reveal, exclusive excerpts, and a giveaway on July 3rd which is also when pre-orders from Dreamspinner Press will go live. The blog tour is being arranged by Creative Minds Promotions for August 3rd to August 14th. You can add it to your Goodreads shelf here.

Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts is due for release August 19th.

Unfortunately the one title that was pushed back due to the move was Catch a Tiger by the Tail (THIRDS, Book 6), but I'm hoping to keep it on track for an early 2016 release.

Weekly News & Updates

NWFBNewsandUpdates

Hello all! Hope you had a wonderful weekend! This week's update brings some exciting news. As some of you may know, the THIRDS series is currently being translated into French, with Contre vents et marées (THIRDS t. 1) being released June 30th. I'm super happy to announce that The Auspicious Troubles of Love series is also currently being translated into French with Les Mésaventures Prometteuses de Chance (The Auspicious Troubles of Chance) coming soon! There's also talk of the THIRDS being translated into another language as well, but I'll share more on that as soon I have more solid info.

Along with translations, the North Pole City Tales series has been contracted for audiobook! The Heart of Frost and Vixen's Valor will be released on audio late this fall! Mending Noel is already available, and if all goes according to schedule, Loving Blitz should be out in eBook format in December.

I've had a few folks ask if Against the Grain will be released on audio. I do believe it will be, but I won't know for sure until the eBook is released. DSP contracts audiobook on or after book release. With the THIRDS I usually hear from them about audiobooks a few days after release. I'll definitely share more on that once I have more information.

The Against the Grain Blog Tour starts Aug 3rd and there will be an awesome giveaway that includes swag themed to the book. Expect some fun geeky stuff.

On July 20th the fabulous Joyfully Jay is hosting the exclusive cover reveal for my contemporary romantic comedy novella Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts. The pre-order will also be available on July 20th, and along with the cover reveal there will be a giveaway and exclusive excerpt. Release day is Aug 19th. There will also be a blog tour starting Aug 19th. More info on that soon.

For anyone attending Rainbow Con in Tampa, I'll be there just hanging out and checking out the events on Friday, July 17th through Saturday, July 18th, so if you fancy saying hello, asking about your favorite book or series, or just chatting, come find me. :D

I'll also be attending GRL in San Diego, CA in October 2015 as a Featured Author, and Coastal Magic Convention in Daytona Beach, FL in Feb 2016 as a Featured Author, so stay tuned for info on panels and events as we get closer. I'll also be attending RT Booklovers Convention in Las Vegas 2016. More on that soon!

I think that's it for this week. Stay tuned to the blog for more on upcoming releases, up dates, events, and more!
