The relaunch ofArdeuris tomorrow. As my kids would say... One more sleep!
My first novel is coming back with a new cover, a new series title and has been edited by a pro. Isn't it pretty?
I'm blogging today to let you knowArdeuris goingupforsale tomorrow.Fora limited time, it's being offered atthefriendship rate of 99 cents, and that certainly applies to all of my loyal fans and followers.

Please feel free to pass this friendship deal on to any Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance fans you know,themorethemerrier. In any endeavor in life, it's all in who you know!
And now for a bit of fun... I thought you might like to see the people I pictured while writingArdeur.
Channing Tatum asBrody Mason Callaghan
Ex-Military (Captain), Werewolf
Brown hair, hazel eyes
Six feet, three inches tall
I know Channing isn't every woman's fantasy but, dayum... he does it for me. Rar.
Amanda Seyfried as Ardeur Blaise Lisle
Necromancer, Killer for Hire
Blonde hair, blue eyes
Five feet, four inches tall
She's got the sultry but sweet look I envisioned for Ardy down pat.
Angel of Death
Black hair, blue eyes
Six feet, four inches tall
I have no idea who this guy is. I saw him on another author's blog and... yeah, perfect. You'll see why in Cassiela.
I hope you've all enjoyed this quick peek into the world of Ardeur. I'll be over at Mind Reader on Monday with a giveaway. Hint: the answer is in this blog post.
Have a great weekend everyone and run, don't walk, to get your copy of Ardeur tomorrow!
Now that I've got your attention let me tell you why. I'm re-releasing my first book, Ardeur, on August 19th, 2011 through Red Hot Publishing. Just two short weeks away. Exciting times!
Anyone who follows me on Twitter or Facebook knows I've been hard at work with my editor getting the book polished to within an inch of its life. With that goes a huge thank you to Shontrell Wade of Wade-Staten Services. You rock!
I took some time off from the craziness of formatting and editing (for others) to work on the new cover yesterday. You may be familiar with the old/current cover:
While cute, I'm not in love with it and decided that - with a fresh new face on the inside - there should be one of the outside as well. I posted the new covers on Facebook last night, but I'll put them here too.
Here's the eBook cover:
And here's the print cover:
It came to my attention during edits that a glossary of terms and characters would be handy, and so... I'm going to include one. Seems not everyone knows what a Nephilim or Dhampyre is.... Who knew?
I'm hoping to have all of the technical stuff done by the weekend so that I can turn my focus toward setting up reviews, guest blogs, etc... My wonderful publisher, Red Hot Publishing, is working on scheduling a book blog tour and I've got my fingers crossed that it goes well.
Some of you may be wondering about the sequel, Cassiela. I've put it aside for the time being. The book needs a massive rewrite and I've got a few other projects that need completing before I can get back to it. My plate is a little full and, with surgery scheduled for mid-October, I need to clear off as much as I can before I'm laid up for two weeks.
Two novellas and a revision on a full length novel in two months? Sure, I can do it! LOL, I have to.
