Stay tuned to blog posts by our authors below.
Today's my birthday, and my goal this year is to give everyone presents in order to celebrate the day. To that end, you've got quite a few ways to get free or cheap books this week!
Pack Princess is now live on Amazon! And, to help you catch up with the series, I've reduced the price of the first novel, Shiftless, to 99 cents for a limited time. Amazon joined in the fun by making the audio version
of Shiftless available for $1.99 for purchasers of the ebook, meaning
that you can listen to Shiftless on audio for only $2.98 (and it's
whispersynced, so you can also pop back and forth between reading and
listening if you prefer).
Me: I’m here today with the cast of Pack Princess. We thought you might need a bit of a reminder on who’s who before diving into book two of the Wolf Rampant series. Terra, do you want to start us off?
Terra Wilder: Okay, if you really want me to. I’m Terra, and I’m pack leader of clan Wilder at the moment. And, um, I guess I’m the heroine too.
Wolf Young: You are the heroine. [Takes Terra’s hand.] I’m her mate, Wolf Young, although everyone who knows me calls me Wolfie. I run my own pack of slightly damaged werewolves.
Justin Young: Slightly damaged — that’s a joke! Halfies, meat, and misfits is what you have in that so-called pack of yours.
Me: Do I need to separate you two? [Justin gets up and stalks to the other end of the room, taking his folding chair with him.] Ooookay, I guess I do. Anyway, that was Justin, who’s Wolfie’s sibling and the leader of the pack that both brothers grew up in. How about we move to Cricket next?
Cricket Wilder: It was so nice of you to invite us all here, today, Aimee. Do you want some tea?
Me: [Mumbling under my breath] It’s always the nice ones that I lose control of. [Raising my voice so I can speak to the whole room.] No tea for me, thanks, Cricket, but do you mind introducing yourself?
Cricket Wilder: How silly of me! I’m Terra’s stepmother, and this great big wolf by my side is my husband, Chief Wilder, Terra’s father. He used to be in charge of clan Wilder. Now he just…um…consults.
Unnamed Uncle Wilder #1: Consults! Ha! I don’t see why we can’t go back to the good old days when men were men and…
Hawk: What my brother-in-law is trying to say is that some of us aren’t so keen on our new alpha. But we don’t all feel that way. I’m another one of Terra’s uncles, but I’m her mother’s brother, which makes me a bit less…um….[throwing a glance at his brother-in-law, then lowering his voice]…never mind….
Bev: Well, I’m Hawk’s sister, and the young man looking all doe-eyed beside me is my son David.
Drew Walker: [Nudging his cousin sharply in the side.] Shut up, your mommy already introduced you. I’m Drew, Terra’s cousin. And you can see one of her other cousins, Milo, guarding the door. There are a slew of us running around…but I’m the best!
Wade: Right. So, that’s it for the Walkers for the moment, since we couldn’t cram any more of them into the room. I’m part of Wolfie’s pack, but I’ve been living here with Terra for a while to help keep things on more of an even keel. Wolfie calls me and my friends the yahoos. That includes [pointing to the next three shifters down the row] Glen, Blaze, and the beautiful Fen.
Fen: Don’t make me hit you.
Me: Okay, see, this is supposed to be a cordial introduction, not a pitched battle. Sarah, how about you tell us who you are next?
Sarah: You know, I really don’t think I should tell you who I am. But you can call me Trouble if you want to.
Dr. Dale Baker: You’re not really as much trouble as you think you are. But since I can tell that Aimee wants us to stay on track, I’ll introduce myself next. I’m Dale, Terra’s brother-in-law and the only human in the room….
Keith Baker: Well, except for Aimee, of course. Unless she’s a closet werewolf. Dum dum dum dum!
Me: Thanks, Keith. Way to get rumors started. That was Dale’s son and Terra’s nephew, for those of you who are keeping track at home. And, since we’re running out of time, I’ll just name the other pack leaders present quickly and let you go. The tall, older man is Thomas Bell, the youngster beside him is Gavin Griffin, and then Chad Walker is the third pack leader down the row. Beside Chad is his mate Camilla, who is also the daughter of the Reed pack leader and a distant cousin to Terra. And, on that note, I’ll let you get back to your regularly scheduled reading. Thanks for dropping by!
Cricket: Now, who wants cookies?
Keith: Oooh, I do! Unless they’re oatmeal. I hate oatmeal.
Wade: This would be a good time to fade to black….
Me: Don’t forget to pick up your copy of Pack Princess, which just became available for preorder today! Oh, and yes, I’ll take a cookie, thanks.
[Fade to black]
chicken-lovers among you will be thrilled to hear that I'm celebrating
Thanksgiving early by putting my chicken books on sale! But before you
go nodding off, you can get the first book without plunking down a cent
--- The Working Chicken is currently free on Smashwords and at Barnes & Noble.
Find out why hard-nosed homesteaders don't name their chickens and much
more in this photo-rich introduction to backyard chicken care.
NaNoWriMo has been a very good nudge for me so far, with 62% of the rough draft of Pack Princess (the sequel to Shiftless) now complete! And, to celebrate, I commissioned this lovely cover from Skylar Faith.
That's "Trouble" pictured, for those of you reading along at home. No
preorder link yet, but I'm hoping to have the finished product ready for
you to enjoy by New Year's, if not a little sooner.
Aimee's newest novel, Despite the Gentleman's Riches, is now live! Here's what a couple of early readers had to say:
“I read the whole book in one sitting because I could not leave it unfinished.” — Sharon H. McConathy
“This book is staying on my Kindle as a 'LOVED' story, and I will re-read again and again.” — S. Chia
getting a late start on this post, which is a benefit for you because I
can link to the other reviews going up today across the Paranormal Blog
Tour world! Sara posted a very kind review of Shiftless, Marilyn embarked on the first book in S.N. Graves' serial, and S.N, Graves followed suit with a fascinating review of Isabel and the Wolf.
Xoe Meyers has a normal life. She's stuck going to high school, and she only has a few friends to call her own.
But even though she likes her normal life, things are about to change. A new guy has come to town, and he's anything but normal.
Before Xoe can say, "Werewolf," her best friend's life is in peril, and Xoe's world is turned upside-down. Can she trust another new guy who promises to come to her aid?
excited to be part of the 2014 Paranormal Romance Blog Tour! And you
should be excited too because it means the possibility of getting free
books and other goodies. Here are the other participants:
Marilyn is offering a free Smashwords code for the first book in her series, Never Marry A Warlock. The code is UB92D and is good through Halloween.
She also has a giveaway running with prizes ranging from free ebooks to gift cards. Be sure to enter!
What about me? Bloodling Wolf
is still free today for those of you who want immediate gratification,
and I'm also giving away three audiobook copies of Shiftless --- use the
widget at the end of this post to enter. And be sure to stay tuned for
more fun here and on the other participants' blogs all week long!
The audio version of Shiftless
is here! Getting to listen to my favorite werewolves brought to life by
a trained voice actor was a revelation, and I hope you enjoy the result
as much as I enjoyed taking part in its creation. Here are some
What's coming next on the audio frontier? As one of my reviewers commented, Bloodling Wolf
really should be an audiobook as well, especially since it's short
enough that the audiobook would be pretty cheap. I polished the short
story (adding another thousand words in the process...oops) and will be
looking for narrator auditions on that story soon. In the meantime, if
you haven't read the prequel short story yet, it's free on Amazon today --- enjoy!
Aimee's had a lot of book news lately, while I've been busy getting in the fall garden (and bringing home new goats!). Things have been happening on the writing front, though. First of all, the paperback version of The Naturally Bug-Free Garden
is now available for preorder, and will be in your hands by the
beginning of March! It's currently marked down to $11.39, a steal
since the book is overflowing with full-color photos. Preorder now
and you'll be among the first to enjoy my permaculture
insect-prevention wisdom on paper!
