Hunting Wolf Release Week!!!

It’s real. And official. And all that. Hunting Wolf, Black Mesa Wolves #3, releases this Friday, August 1. Hooray! Took me longer to write it than I’d planned. Nah, don’t even ask. All the drama reasons behind that will probably end up cathartically expressed in a book one day…mwah-ha-ha-ha.

So here’s the skinny on all things around the release:

Release Date: AUGUST 1st, 2014, Friday

Special Promo Price: only $0.99 during release! It will soon bounce back up to its regular price of $3.99, so grab it early on.

Series Sales: Guardian Wolf #1 is FREE during promo. Alpha Wolf #2 is only $0.99 during promo. You can find the buy links if click on those book links.

Contest: Well, of course there’s a contest! Find it out on the Giveaway Tab of my Facebook Page. Contest runs until midnight August 10.

Can’t wait for you all to read it! I had a lot of fun writing about Caleb and Rielle. Their relationship is full of tension and giggles, and they just made it a lot of fun to delve into their attraction and inner demons.

Caleb Bardou has a quick answer for anything that comes at him: his fists. Barreling through life, damn the consequences, has always worked for him. With dangerous rogue wolves threatening his Pack, he has to be a ruthless warrior. But when a delicate little she-wolf gets in his steamroller way, he has to use a different strategy to win this unexpected battle of the sexes. Rielle Amoux is the prize? The hunt is on!

 

Each time civilized Rielle thinks about caveman Caleb, she gets all tingly inside. Yet she refuses to be flustered by a hot-headed, chest-thumping, he-man of a wolf. Except Caleb is sexier than sin, and he arouses her on a primal level – the part of her she’s always denied from fear she won’t be able to control it. But if she doesn’t free her wild side soon, she risks losing her wolf forever….

 

Between the vicious rogues and sweetly seductive Rielle, Caleb has his hands full. Just when he thinks he has everything under control, his trigger temper erupts again. This time, the fallout could be disastrous for his Pack – as well as for any chance he has with the sexy little wolf who might be his destiny.

Hunting Wolf cover is here!

I really love the covers for this series. My super amazing cover artist, LFD Designs, is working on the covers for the next two books right now, and I can’t wait to see them.

But in the meantime…here’s the cover for Hunting Wolf, Book 3 in the Black Mesa Wolves series!

I love how Caleb and Rielle are portrayed. Caleb is strong, knows what he wants, and is ready to explore a future with Rielle. For her part, Ri is a little uncertain about the big wolf who thinks his fighting ways are the best answer to his problems! The cover captures that tension between them, while also showing that they are meant to be together. :)

Hunting Wolf: Caleb & Rielle’s story

It’s full steam ahead on getting ready for Hunting Wolf, Black Mesa Wolves #3. It will be out in February! Exact date to come soon. :) There’ll be more news about it in the next newsletter, which will hit an inbox near you later this month. If you haven’t signed up for said newsletter, go ahead and do it–I send them out for new releases, contests, and only big news. Be the first to hear about special SALES and other cool stuff. :)

So, Hunting Wolf. This is Caleb and Rielle’s story. They have been such fun characters to write about! Caleb is so brash and cocky and ready to meet every and any challenge with his fists and his sometimes reckless mouth–he definitely tends to speak well before he thinks. Rielle is more reserved and holds back a great deal, and she’s much more finicky about appearances and behavior than Caleb.

As it will turn out, she’s hiding some big things from him, one super big thing in particular, and her internal struggle to set herself free will drive Caleb crazy in all the best ways. :) He has an uphill battle on his hands trying to convince her he’s not the graceless barbarian wolf she seems to think he is. Unfortunately for Caleb, he keeps displaying that rough side to Rielle every time their paths cross, which doesn’t help his case! It’s a good thing that somewhere deep down, she finds his unpolished maleness fascinating and attractive…when she stops long enough in her critical regard of him to realize he’s hiding some painful stuff, too. Our secrets and scars tend to make us who we present to the world, and it takes a very special person to see beneath the masks we wear in everyday life.

I’ll show off the cover when it’s done. My fabulous cover artist will be working on it at the end of this month, so I’ll do a reveal hopefully in early February. But here are my inspirations for Caleb and Rielle, just so you can get a picture of them in your head now. Happy looking!

Alpha Wolf is here!

Alpha Wolf is out in the world. Oh, it’s like sending a baby to school. But honestly, woot! I’m excited.

The buy links are below, so feel more than free to cruise over and pick up a copy. :) I’m also having a giveaway on my Facebook page, have some guest blog posts lined up in December, and will be having giveaways on Facebook, via my newsletter (ahem, have you signed up yet?), and am planning something lovely and fun over the holidays.

shout out to the world

Just reviving the bloginess here. Getting geared back up in the Black Mesa world, and it feels good. I’m about to torture some  characters…heh heh heh. It should be fun.

This was a long hiatus, and I do apologize for it. I have no excuses but for the usual dramas of life. If only everything was always smooth sailing and the writing flowed daily with ease! Well, that’s my intention now. It’s amazing how we create our own lives, and often don’t even realize it.

One of my top intentions: Write. Publish. Write more. Write better. Publish. Write.

Etc.

Thanks for listening to my shout out, and thanks to *everyone* out there who has bought and read Guardian Wolf and wants more! You inspire me to keep writing.
