Blood of Eden is getting AMAZING 5 star reviews!!!  Check out this one from The Book Quarry!

———————————————————————–

After reading this book I was near speechless. This book was in a word phenomenal! It had spectacular world building, complex characters and descriptive writing I would expect from a seasoned writer. I could hardly believe the book I just read was a debut novel! I absolutely loved it. The author took her time building her characters and yet she didn’t lose me as a reader. It was interesting throughout the book. I was deeply intrigued from the synopsis and was completely enthralled by her writing. I was hooked from the first chapter.
The way the characters interacted with each other made me feel as if I was part of the group. I was right there for the entire story. Nothing was rushed but the entire book was just so compelling I didn’t want to put it down. The romance was not an easy one and it certainly didn’t follow a straight path. The way is set for the next book and I am so looking forward to it. This book has captured me and I am excited to share it with everyone who would love a paranormal romance.

So now what?

Well, now comes the part that most creative types don’t super love.  Publicity.  Getting your name out there and hoping that people will be willing to pick your novel out of thousands of equally good looking novel covers.  If they pick it up, if they click on the link, then you have the opportunity to wow them with your back blurb.  So it had better be a good one right?

Here’s mine…

When Katherine LaFlamme is summoned home by her father, the Alpha of the North American wolf pack, she drops everything and answers the call. Despite her desire to experience the human world before she settles down, Katherine is fiercely loyal and, as her parent’s first born and the pack’s best tracker, she’s an essential part of the family. 

There’s trouble at home; a hunter has invaded their territory and murdered several of their kind and a rogue wolf has been stalking the female members of the LaFlamme family. To make matters worse, a secondary claim to the Alphaship of North America has risen, setting the entire pack on edge.

Then Katherine meets a mysterious wolf named Quinn and things begin to get interesting… and very deadly. Katherine and Quinn are swept up in a puzzle of ancient rites, prophecies, and mythic lore which reveals that there’s more to both Quinn and Katherine than first meets the eye. 

Like it?  I really hope you do.  Because here’s where it gets serious.  Here’s where I ask you if you’re ready to say YES to the book and clink on the links below to buy a copy.

You tease!

I never realized making teasers for my book could be so much fun.

I’ve made two and both involve a wolf background, so I haven’t even gotten to the sexy couple making out teasers.

They’ll come.  Don’t you worry.

So, without further ado, here’s a little teaser from Blood of Eden.

This former book snob now writes romance

It’s true.  I write romance.

What’s also true is that I freaking love it!  13174181_126808414391681_6101634125419317200_n (1)

Once upon a time I was a literary snob.  I went to University and studied the classics, some of which I hated by the way, because I love literature.  I studied everything from Beowulf to The Canterbury Tales, Dante to the Brontes.  What I discovered, much to my chagrin, is that while I love literature, it just doesn’t do when you want to curl up with a glass of wine, a piece of chocolate, and just sink into a story you know will come with a happily ever after.

c439b949e8e7bb8afbef69fdbd262868814e7fabSo the snob admitted she loved romance novels.

How do you get from loving them to writing them, you ask?  Well, the answer to that is simple.  Love something enough and eventually you will want to try it out.

I’ve been writing all my life in one way or another and some of it felt natural, while some of it felt forced.  When I sat down to my computer and started writing my first novel, a paranormal romance staring a sassy redheaded wolf shifter named Katherine LaFlamme, it felt right.  The character wanted to come to life and I couldn’t type fast enough.

I wrote Blood of Eden in about a year; I thought that was amazing at the time.  Then it took me five more years to edit it, put it aside, edit it again, and finally, edit it once more.  So, it’s been six years since I started and here we are, with my first novel available for pre-order through Amazon.ca, Amazon.com, Kobo, Kindle, and wherever else you can buy books online, and the release date just just one month away on June 17th.

I’m kind of proud, can you tell?
