Dark Side Down Under 2nd anniversary Halloween blog hop

Welcome to the Dark Side Down Under 2nd anniversary Halloween blog hop!

We've got a bunch of paranormal folks blogging, and a bunch of cool prizes!

Halloween, folks. Ooga booga, trick or treat. Pumpkins, scary costumes and candy/lollies for all. Treats ahoy.

But what about the trick part? The threat of mischief and shenanigans on anyone who plays the Halloween equivalent of Ebenezer Scrooge. No candy? Fine. It gets the hose. Or a dog poo pie. Or I HEART JUSTIN BIEBER soaped onto its front window. No mercy.

Does anyone actually follow through with this? Please, I'd really like to know. This is my first Halloween in a Halloween-friendly country (yeah, they love this stuff in Blighty. Who knew?) and I expect herds of kiddies at my door who will think I know what to do. Do I just feed 'em and shoo 'em away? How many lollies is enough?

I'll let you know how it goes :) In the meantime... want to win a free ebook? And more cool stuff? Of course you do. Read on...

The prize here on this blog is my sexy vampire romance short HUNTER'S BLOOD, which takes place one steamy Halloween eve... or, if you prefer some kick-ass sci-fi adventure, you can choose a pre-order of my awesome secret-agent-heroine space opera, DRAGONFLY!!

All you gotta do is answer me this question: if you could go to anyone's house and trick-or-treat them -- who would you choose? Real person or character, past/present/future, whatever you like. And what would be your trick if they didn't come through with the goods? A bonus entry if you tell me who should get the dog poo pie.

Me, I'd rock up at the Bat Cave. If Batman doesn't give me candy, I get to drive the Batmobile. Sounds fair to me...

Once you've done that? Click on through to the other blogs in the hop. They're all offering cool prizes too.

And... the grand prize for the blog hop is a $30 Amazon gift card! (See the DSDU post).

Here are the rules of the blog hop:

1. To be eligible to win a prize on the blogs, the reader must do as what’s instructed on each blog by 11.59pm 4th November Australian Eastern Daylight Savings Time.

2. To be eligible to win the Amazon voucher, the participants must comment on each participating blog. Only one comment needed on each blog. Multiple comments will be ignored for the purposes of the contest.

A-bloggin' we will go... and some cheap books!

First of all, one for my Aussie friends: right now, Booktopia are offering my entire backlist at a big discount.

You can order the trade paperback of SHADOWFAE for $3.50 -- that's 85% off! And they even have my newest book REVELATION for $9.25 -- almost half price! What a bargain!

So go forth and treat yourself, book lovers. Who knows how long these fab prices will last? You know you want to...

Also, a few more landings on my REVELATION blog tour:

All Things Urban Fantasy, where I'm talking about fallen angels and y'know, how cool they are, and what they're doing wandering the earth anyway. Come share your favourite angel books to enter the contest!

ParanormalHavenAnd come on over to Halloween at Paranormal Haven, and see what my fallen angels would wear to their archangel's Halloween party in Ibiza. I've written a little scene to show you. There's a dominatrix. A fairy prince. A zombie wrapped in toilet paper. These dudes costume up, let me tell you.

Spreading the blog tour lurve...

If you were a gang of vengeful demons bent on creating hell on earth, where would you hold your Apocalypse?

For REVELATION, I chose New York City. Come and see why at my guest appearance at Literary Escapism, for a chance to win a free book!

Also, you can RSVP for my spot at Bitten By Books this Friday, and you'll get more entries in the prize draw. What's the prize? You'll have to go there and see. But it has vampires. And you can buy books with it. Or something...

Book birthday release party!! and giveaway!!

Today is REVELATION Day! 

Sexy fallen angels and seven plagues of doom at the end of the world, brought to you by the sweetest man-midriff you're likely to see this week:

Is that special, or what?

I'm so excited to be starting a new series. And to celebrate, I'm kicking off with a release party and giveaway at Romance Writers of the Apocalypse.

Come by for a chance to win your very own copy of REVELATION -- plus a copy of FLESH by the fab Kylie Scott.

But wait! There's more! If you're in Australia -- because hey, I gotta keep something special for my fellow Aussies -- drop by the ARRA members' blog for a chance to win a special prize.

So what's this REVELATION thing about, you ask? Here's the low-down:

A fallen angel with a mission and a medical examiner who’s lost her faith are fighting for their souls in a glittering, near-future Manhattan… 

Blind faith is for fools. That’s what Dr. Morgan Sterling believes. And she’s going to prove it by curing the zombie plague ravaging her city’s slums. She’s certain it’s not a sign of the End of Days, but a nasty disease—until an angel appears in her morgue in a flash of glory.

Luniel is not just a fallen angel. He’s a powerful warrior sworn to fight evil in hopes of a chance at redemption. He’s after the demon princes who are stealing the seven vials of holy wrath which, when perverted, will unleash eternal hell on earth. To stop the plague, Luniel needs Morgan’s help, and her faith. But Morgan believes science is their salvation. If the zombie plague is a demonic curse—and if Luniel is true—he’ll have to prove it. Even if he loses his heart to true love or his soul to Hell…

You can read the first chapter at my website. Or download the free Kindle sample, which is almost TWO chapters. For NOTHING, folks. And here's the page for the free Nook sample. You can also buy from Sony and Apple.

If you'd prefer the paperback, it's at Amazon, B&N or Book Depository. If you're in Australia, you can buy from the lovely Margaret at Intrigue.

I hope you all enjoy Lune and Morgan's story. They're tough. They're gorgeous. They fight evil. They fall in love... oh, wait, spoilers!! Never mind. Just go visit the part-ay!
