shadowglass goodness, and an e-book

Celebrating? Me? Why, yes. I'm glad you asked.

One: my baby Shadowfae is now an e-book. Yay! All good things come to those who wait. Check it out. There are links in the sidebar to the left. And remember, some e-stores offer loyalty programs or promotional discounts, so I humbly suggest you shop around. Nuff said :)

Two: it's just twenty-eight days until the release of my new book, Shadowglass.

So to celebrate I'm gonna give away an ARC. Right here, right now. Well, in a second. Once I've shown you the goodness. Bear with me.

A seductive magic mirror lies hidden deep in a demon’s lair, with a simple warning: don’t stare at the glass…

Ice is a thief and a scammer—a troubled fairy trying her best to eke out a meager living in the squalid underworld of the Shadowfae. When she spends a hot night with a demon lord, she discovers a powerful magic mirror in his lair—and pilfers it, knowing it’s the key to escaping her bleak life as a two-bit con artist. But Ice soon discovers that its power comes with a price…madness, which is slowly overtaking her.

Indigo oozes darkness, danger and tempting sensuality. He’s been sent to destroy Ice and bring the mirror back to its rightful owner. A mission that, if he fails, will cost him his life. But when he meets Ice, he faces an even greater challenge: an insatiable sexual hunger that neither of them can deny, and dark passions that threaten to claim them both forever. The trouble is, the longer he stays within the mirror’s reach, the greater its hold on his sanity—and his determination to save Ice…

RT Reviews shower my baby with four (count 'em! four!) stars and say this:

"Take an unbelievably sexy fae heroine who thinks she's a geek and a blue metalfae, and you have one steamy urban fantasy in the latest Shadowfae Chronicle. The unique characters have few morals and are totally engaging, and a colorful alternate world in contemporary Melbourne is the perfect spot for the magical, fast-paced plot."

And I'm stoked to get a starred review from Publisher's Weekly, including this:

"This engaging sequel to 2009’s Shadowfae weaves rich sensual imagery and dark eroticism into a breathless thriller plot."

Lastly, check out, if you please, my brand new trailer:

Like it? Awesome! Show your friends. Wanna win an ARC? Thought so.

Next week, I'll have excerpts. There's one in the back of Shadowfae (which is now an e-book. Did I mention that?) but I think you deserve more. Soon. So long as you're good girls and boys...
