Blatant Self-Promotion


This morning while visiting my usual rounds of blogs while I had my coffee, I found an extremely generous offer at Cassandra Carr’s blog. ( is offering writers the chance to promote their work on her blog. Wow! What a hugely generous gift.

Since I am always in search of new reading material, I thought I would borrow her idea and offer you the same chance here. Leave a comment in the comments section below. Tell us about your story, where to buy it, length, publisher, blurb, and tell us about your website too. In the spirit of giving, it would be nice if you returned the favour, but I don’t require it. (Don’t forget to thank Cassandra too.)

Don’t forget to stop by your favourite e-publisher and pick up The Gift.

Come of folks, lets share the wealth and find us some new authors to worship.
(I'm off now to check out some new books. I hope my visa can stand the strain. *grin*)

(Okay, I've been to dozens of sites offering this generous gift. My to-be-read list is getting longer and longer. What a fabulous time I am going to have reading all these new-to-me authors. WOWSERS!)


  1. Hey Katie!

    Cassandra Carr here. Thanks for the opportunity! I will also be doing this, though my post will not go live until shortly after midnight ET on New Year's Eve. The link to my blog is

    My book is titled Head Games, and it's book 1 in the Buffalo Intimidators series. It's a m/f/m menage erotic romance. Here's the blurb:
    Leo Laporte and Scott Schaeffer are teammates on the ice and roommates off it who also share women. They’ve been coming into Kelly Chase’s bistro after games for months, and they know they want her. As the attraction grows, the men realize they want more than a one-night stand - they want forever.

    Kelly’s not so sure. Yes, she wants both men. But a permanent ménage relationship? That’s taking giving her heart away to a whole new level, and a chance she’s hesitant to take. Then Leo is injured and Scott’s on the trading block, and she realizes this may be her only shot at true, everlasting love.

    There are so many questions swirling around inside Kelly’s head. Can she believe in Leo and Scott’s love? And will her business and her reputation survive once people find out she’s with two men?

    Post-apocalyptic Earth: after alien invasion, AEI, 2064 AD, The Wild

    With her beloved Shifter mate two days in Oregon's ground, Sierra must choose to live or die. She has two options--join a Shifter clan by choosing a mate or live alone. Life is dangerous for a woman after the extraterrestrial invasion. Women choose protection in a group or are sold into slavery, even to the aliens. She opts for the protection of the clan, him.

    He's glorious. Empathetic. And resolved to mark her. He will not lose her. Jackal, the powerful right-hand Shifter of the clan's leader, her brother-in-law, is determined she will be taken care of properly as mates aren't easily come by. Especially in The Wild. But they just met, and she fights mating in her early stages of mourning. Honor-bound with a vow made over his brother's death bed to see her safe, he internally swears to win her love. Whatever it takes.

    But she harbors a dangerous secret. Born a Cougar, she dares not risk revealing she's a Shifter, or bounty hunters will descend upon the remote mountain village to capture her for extraterrestrials. Villagers would die in the attacks. However, her Cougar rises up to claim Jackal for its mate. Shifter meets Cougar. Cougar claims her mate. Never-ending fireworks mark their raw attraction. But when the post-apocalyptic world is determined to tear them apart, will Normals, Shifters, or aliens win? Bet your money on COUGAR.

    ***Warning: Heroine mates with hero in his Wolfskin.

  5. Thank you so much for the open invitation!! This is a lot of fun!
    I'd like to mention a little something about my latest paranormal romance:


    Mini Blurb:
    Damphyr, Ford Lenox had waited three hundred years for an ancient prophecy to be fulfilled allowing his destined mate to assume her rightful place at his side.
    And that day has come…
    Lauren Neil had no idea that the damphyr lurking beneath her human surface was about to be unleashed, and no idea that her greatest enemy would be the incubus who sired her.
    Even a match made in heaven, may have to go through hell to survive!

  6. FERAL FEVER (Feral Book 3)

    "FERAL FEVER was INCREDIBLE. ...A must read! It has everything I love: menage, strong heroine character, story you want to know the development, sad parts but not too much so you do not get too upset, teddy bear alpha males, hot sex scenes... A must read indeed! PS: can be read as a stand alone." ~MaryP at NCP's online chat community

    Blessed are those who just give in to the darkness. With the Blood Wars ended, were-assassin Marshals are called to serve throughout the universe in easing cultural tensions instigated by the transition of cultures from zombified to free-thinking societies...

    Earthling archaeologist Aisling Bjorn never really considered juggling multiple husbands for were-assassin duty on planet Luvk--a world of tiger folk subjugated by winged aliens from another dimension. Learning the lost history of the tiger culture to understand how the winged species divided and conquered the tiger realms is more her cup of tea. But she's in store for an even bigger challenge than helping the Luvks reclaim their independence. There's a shortage of marriageable females for the large broods of gorgeous tiger princes. The friction caused by mating problems threatens her sanity as the warrior Lords vie for possession of not only a mate but a powerful political pawn--her, the Marshal whose beauty rivals that of the most marketable princess. And mates the Lords all wish to be.

    Aisling must accept that with every turn in life, we sacrifice a bit of our souls for the greater good. Even to the darkness. Blessed are those who just give into the darkness of Luvk. Because a woman's sanity is out of the question when surrounded by enormous muscled hunks cloaked in sexy leather pants. Their glorious bodies alone could incite riots on Earth. And they all want her. One thing's for certain, love or lust, everyone eventually succumbs to Luvks' FERAL FEVER.

    Rating: Spicy/Carnal. Genre: Paranormal/Futuristic Romance.
    Epic-length novel (110,000 words)

    Bring-'em-back-alive was Theone's job description back on Earth. Now off-world, beauty, sex appeal, brains, and lots of martial arts training make her the weapon of choice. She's heading into the deadliest compound of political prisoners in the universe on a last-ditch effort to liberate an alien king. She understands sex is merely a tool she can use to achieve her objective. And around every prison corner lurks some alien male with seduction on his mind. Friend or foe, cyborg or not, forbidden love or indescribable lust, the prison walls must come down as she submits to whatever it takes to survive the Blood Wars' FERAL FALLOUT.

    Authors: Sandra Nachlinger & Sandra Allen

That’s when Kiki says, “When you think about it, and I’m only trying to be fair, we owe those guys sex.” With bawdy jabs and tipsy laughter, they vow to track down their old boyfriends and make amends. Will their sexual IOUs be paid in full? Or is this just another one of Kiki's crazy ideas?

    Is Carolyn destined to spend her remaining years with only comfy shoes as her sole fit?

    JUST THE RIGHT FIT, short contemporary. Carolyn Sloan is beyond middle aged, but she's not about to give up on love...especially when the new clerk in her favorite shoe store looks to be about her age and isn't sporting a wedding band. Does she stand a chance or give up when she spies him coming from behind the stockroom curtain with his arm around another woman?
