Halloween Scare Trail

Hello, all! Thank you for joining the scare trail! We've got a host of fabulous authors celebrating the spooky season with some fantastic giveaways!

Since we're talking about all things spooky and paranormal, let's chat about spooky books! I haven't read many horror books, but I've certainly read quite a few paranormal books with scenes that made me close my eyes. If I could have read the rest of the scenes at the time with my eyes closed, I would have! LOL. Of course, the audios weren't available at the time.

One of my favorite paranormal series with super spooky scenes is Jordan Castillo Price's PsyCop series. Man, it's a good thing I wasn't a character in that book because I'd have been crawling all over Victor begging him to protect me from all the things that went bump in the night--and day. Actually, I probably would have been fine just chilling out with Crash at his shop. Yep, you do you, boo. You go chase down those vengeful spirits, I'll stay right here and have me a latte with Crash.

One of the first stories I read by Jordan L. Hawk was Hainted, and that spooked me up good. Yes, I'm a total wuss when it comes to haints looking to shred my soul to pieces. From there I moved onto Widdershins. I love the Wyborne and Griffin series!

Personally, my paranormal creatures tend to be more on the sexy shifter side, though I did write a short Halloween story a while back.  It's sweet, heartbreaking, and a bit otherworldly with a twist or two along the way to a HEA. This story's a little different from my usual, but I loved writing it.

 

Between the Devil and the Pacific Blue

For the last six months, Detective James Ralston has worked the nightshift as security for the Pacific Blue Hotel, and every night at 2 a.m. his rounds lead him to the radio room where the handsome and mysterious Franklin Fairchild sits listening to waltzes as old as the hotel itself. James is drawn to Franklin, but Franklin is a man at the end of his rope, and James has no intention of getting caught up in whatever trouble Franklin is in. A heated encounter late one night sends James down a disturbing path and has him questioning everything around him, including his very sanity.

Love and Payne Release Day Giveaway!

Hello, all! After many years, Zach and Austen's story is finally here! Woot woot! To celebrate the release of Love and Payne, I'm giving away a fabulous cheetah-themed giveaway in honor of our feisty feline Austen Payne! Just check out the giveaway details below.

If you can't enter the giveaway, don't you worry, we have plenty of giveaways happening this week in celebration!

Out now from: Dreamspinner Press eBook Dreamspinner Press Paperback Amazon Kindle Amazon Global Link Barnes & Noble Kobo iBooks

BOOK DETAILS Genre: Paranormal Gay Romance, Shifters Series: A THIRDS Universe Novel, Standalone Length: Novel 64,670 words, 200 pages Published: Sept 4th, 2018 Publisher: Dreamspinner Press Cover Artist: LC Chase Ebook ISBN-13:9781640807747 Paperback ISBN-13:978164080775-4

SYNOPSIS

Austen Payne, THIRDS Squadron Specialist Agent (SSA) for Destructive Delta and TIN operative, has seen the worst the world has to offer, faced lethal killers, and helped bring down dangerous organizations. But nothing terrifies him more than falling in love. After years of undercover work, Austen is a master at defending himself and protecting his heart… until he meets Osmond Zachary.

THIRDS Defense Agent Osmond Zachary has a huge, doting family, yet something is missing in his life. After meeting grumpy, foul-mouthed, jittery cheetah Therian Austen Payne, Zach knows exactly what that something—or someone—is. Unfortunately Austen seems determined to avoid Zach at all costs.

When Zach foils an assassination attempt, he ends up in the killer’s crosshairs, and Austen is Zach’s best chance at staying alive. Zach hopes the crisis will bring them closer, but Austen has every intention of walking away as soon as the danger is over.

Happily ever after isn’t for guys like Austen, but Zach is determined to show him it can be….

💛 EXCERPT

** It is not necessary to read the THIRDS series to enjoy Love and Payne. Austen and Zach originally appeared in the THIRDS series, and characters mentioned in Love and Payne are featured in the THIRDS series. If you prefer to read stories in order, you’ll find the THIRDS series reading order here. Zach and Austen do not appear in all the books.

GIVEAWAY

The giveaway also includes a TIN button which is not pictured as I just ordered them and they're due to arrive before the giveaway ends.

**** Restrictions: Due to the nature of the giveaway--mainly it having a huge ceramic mug--this giveaway is ONLY open to US readers. ****

For international readers: I have two giveaways going on this week (one today, one on Friday) in my Facebook reader group, and both are open internationally.

You can find my group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/charliecochet/

To enter the giveaway (again US only please): Just leave a comment below with your favorite THIRDS moment from any book or THIRDS Thursday.

Ends: September 25th @midnight Eastern time. Winner will be announced here on the blog shortly after. By entering you agree to be notified via email should you win.

GRL 2018 Paperback Preorder

Hello, all! My GRL paperback preorder form is live! Please read the instructions on the form carefully.

This preorder is only for my self-published titles: Love in Spades: Four Kings Security Book One, Be Still My Heart: Four Kings Security Book Two, and Center of Gravity: Compromised Book One (novella).

For Dreamspinner titles (THIRDS books, etc.), DSP will be having their own preorder in September so you'll be able to order any of my DSP titles through them. Love and Payne, and Tried & True will be available for sale at the DSP table in limited quantities.

Preorder closes September 20th, 2018.

💛 PLEASE NOTE: CreateSpace and Kindle Direct Publishing have announced a merger in the next few weeks, and Amazon will be moving everyone's titles over. As CreateSpace is where most self-published authors get their paperbacks from, there's a possibility of delays and all sorts happening (because we all know these things never go as smoothly as promised). I have placed an order of both Kings books and Center of Gravity ahead of time in hopes of avoiding any problems (fingers crossed), but the number ordered was a guestimate. Those books will be allocated to folks based on the date of preorder. If the preorders exceed that number and there are problems with delivery after those initial books have been allocated, I'll be sure to notify you immediately.

Seth has never had a problem following the rules until the day one of the dancers falls into his lap. Literally. Kit loves his job dancing at Sapphire Sands.

How about I give away 5 ARC copies of Love and Payne? Yes? Good idea? Read it before it's out! Woot!

To enter: Just leave a comment below with your most anticipated THIRDS Universe book release. Is it a TIN series book? An M/F THIRDS Universe Novel like Letty and Captain Kirk? Or A THIRDS Universe Novel like Angel and Taylor? Whose book are you just itching for?

THIRDS Thursday 8/9/18

Hello, all! This week's THIRDS Thursday brings us our monthly THIRDS Thursday giveaway! This month we have some signed mass market paperbacks of Hell & High Water with some swaggie bits. For those who aren't familiar with mass market, they're the smaller, lightweight paperbacks you see in bookstores as opposed to the common 6x9 size the series is currently available in. Dreamspinner Press is rolling out the series in mass market size and hopefully, we'll start to see the books in bookstores in the not too distant future. They're currently working on Blood & Thunder, and Rack & Ruin.

I'm giving away 10x signed mass market paperbacks of Hell & High Water + some swaggy bits. The giveaway is open internationally. Winners will be chosen at random and posted here on this post Thursday, Aug 30th.

To enter just leave a comment below which THIRDS character, characters, or couple you'd like the next flash fiction stories to feature.
