**UPDATE**  Check out this blog post about the giveaway.

Today I reached 3,000 likes on my Facebook page!!  To celebrate, I am planning on have a huge giveaway with authors and bloggers.

The giveaway will be in the form of a Facebook page event.  Everyone is welcome to join, as it will be open to the public.  If you have never been involved in one of these, allow me to break it down for you.

Basically, an author/blogger will donate something in the form of books, swag, gift cards, etc.  They run their own little mini giveaway on the Facebook event.  What that means is you post in the event with any images you want (book covers, book teasers, banners, etc.), what you are giving away, who is eligible to participate (US only or worldwide) and what the participants have to do in order to win.

The attendees of the event will participate in these little “mini giveaways” and follow the instructions of each giveaway post in order to be eligible to win.  Now, what do they have to do to win?  It could be almost anything.  You make the rules, and you are responsible for your own giveaway.  Your giveaway can be as simple as like, share, comment.  If you want to make them work for it, you can get more Facebook page likes, Amazon author page likes, blog likes/comments/subscribers, etc.

So what’s in it for you for running a giveaway?  It depends on what you ask the participants to do.  You can gain Facebook page likes, new subscribers to your blog or newsletter, comments/likes on your blog, Amazon author page likes and so much more.  It’s a way to gain followers and attention for new releases fast.  These events are great for indie authors especially, because you’re getting your name out there, your book cover images/teasers and so much more to a lot of people who may have never seen your work before.

If you would like to donate books, e-books, gift cards, swag, etc., please go to this Facebook post and vote on which weekend would work out best for you.  Once we settle on a weekend, I will create the giveaway and post about it on my Facebook page.

SAVING AVERY

Cover Reveal

Saving_Avery_Cover

Well, Christa over at Paper and Sage has outdone herself again!  I am so in love with this cover.  I would love to hear your opinions below, so please leave a comment! 🙂

Saving Avery blurb (subject to change)

Avery Mason had it all: the nice house, the fancy clothes, the expensive cars and the perfect husband.  On the outside looking in, her life appears to be perfect.  But inside, Avery knows her life is far from perfection as her husband’s carefully constructed façade slowly starts to crumble.

Forced to fake a happy marriage while enduring physical and mental abuse from the man who had once been her whole world is taking its toll.  And ever so slowly, Avery finds herself slipping into an existence where she is gradually becoming a shell of her former self.

 

When Dr. Max Harrison transfers from Chicago to North Carolina, his world is flipped upside down the moment he sees Avery.  With one glimpse into her blue-gray eyes, he can see the pain she is so desperately hiding from the rest of the world.  As Avery attempts to push him away, he becomes convinced that there is more to her than meets the eye.  And when he finally uncovers her darkest secret, the pieces of the puzzle slowly start to click into place.

Max and Avery want to be together, but nothing in life is ever that simple.  It’s not going to be easy to get her away from the powerful Mason family, but Max will risk everything to protect her. His only concern is Saving Avery.


Note from the author:  Saving Avery is an erotic thriller that takes place on the North Carolina coast.  It has really been an emotional roller coaster for me while I’ve been writing this book.  Avery suffers physical and mental abuse at the hands of her husband, a man she was once completely in love with.  It’s never easy to write a character’s struggles when you have to pour so much of yourself into them.  I felt her pain.  I felt her struggles.  Like I said…emotional roller coaster.

    When the idea for this book first came to mind, I pushed it aside.  No way, I thought.  Besides the general subconscious thought I always have when I start a new book (Hey, you have a million other books to write and finish!  What are you doing?!), Avery’s story kept resurfacing.  I’m sure any writer out there can relate when your characters become relentless…and sometimes downright annoying.  They want their story told, and they want it told now.  So I endeavored into yet another book that I just couldn’t break away from.  It was a struggle from the beginning because of the sensitive subject matter, but I pressed on.  Avery needed her story told, and who was I to deny her?

    I hope that Avery’s story comes across as genuine and that her struggles and triumphs affect all of my readers just as they have affected me while I was writing about them.

Saving Avery will be released soon in early 2015.  Read below for info about ARCs.

Review for Vampire Next Door by My Bookshelf Is Yours

Léatitia over at My Bookshelf Is Yours reviewed Vampire Next Door.  I am very honored to say she gave it a five-star rating!

Here is a little preview of her review:

Vampire Next Door is the story of a woman left for dead who wakes up from a coma. She has no memory of her past and is called « Jane Doe » since no one came for her. Scared and broken, she quickly understands she never was alone thanks to her doctor, Jack Walker. At the beginning of the book, Jane Doe is lucky and loved, and after months of being in a hospital, she finally is happy. She had found her balance. But unfortunately, tragedy strikes again and she is once again lost and broken. But something or should I say someone arrives and gives her something to smile for. Here he is : Sebastian Alexander, her mysterious and handsome neighbor, living next door, who seems to have some secrets of his own. Jane is falling for him but at the same time, she is confused by how this new man in her life is capable of getting her so quickly, always here when she needs someone so bad. She also starts to wonder if he is really a stranger or someone she could rely on to find out who she was before the « accident » and above all, who wants her dead.

First I have to say, I love vampire stories and movies so I was really excited to read Vampire Next Door. But maybe I should warn you, this is not a novel 100% about vampires. I mean, the way I understand and love the plot makes me think this novel is more than just about a sexy and dangerous vampire. I loved the pace of this novel, which I found was different from what I usually read, and loved the characters. This is the kind of books I’m beginning to love more and more each time I read one like Vampire Next Door. There are actions, romance ( oh yeah!), humor and suspense. It is a really an efficient writing that made my reading active and amazing. Sure, it’s a slow process to get to know the main character. And I also wanted to know more about this mysterious visitor. But then characters like Jack Walker are here and we get to know Jane through his eyes. And it’s something I really appreciated. Something else I enjoyed is how easy I felt close to Jane. Who wouldn’t feel sad about her ? But who wouldn’t want to take her place at some point too ?


Léatitia then goes on to break down the characters in the book, their traits and what she liked about each one.  What a review!  And don’t worry, Léatitia, I am planning a sequel some day! 😉

Please visit her blog for many more book reviews, and make sure you check out the post on Vampire Next Door.

Review by Run & Read That

Sherry over at Run & Read That posted a review of Vampire Next Door yesterday.  I thought I would share it with all of you and link over to her site, so that you can check out her other reviews and the rest of her blog.

You can find the review here and also read it down below.  A big thank you to Sherry for writing a review on Vampire Next Door.  I’m glad you enjoyed it! 😉

 


 

Vampire Next Door by Angela Snyder

(Review from Run & Read That)

“What can I say about this novel by Angela Snyder besides it was pretty darn good?!?! I was pleasantly surprised at how this novel grabbed my attention and held on to it until the very last page. I have had case of book hangover after reading about the life and loves of Jane Doe, the heroine of the story. The novel begins with a hunter finding an unconscious woman in the woods with no identification and once she awakens after being in a coma for three weeks, she doesn’t have a single memory of the life she lived before her mysterious accident.

Fortunately for her, she is cared for by a very compassionate man Dr. Jack Walker whom she begins to rely on to get her through her recovery as her only friend. However, she cannot shake the occasional feeling that being watched. But luckily for her and us the readers, she is being watched by the sexily mysterious Sebastian Alexander, who only wants her happy.

Nevertheless, the relationship between Jane Doe & Dr. Walker grows, they get married and it appears a happily ever after is on the horizon until tragedy strikes again. Dr. Walker is mugged and killed on or around their anniversary. As Jane is slowly recovering from her loss,  the mysterious Sebastian moves into the house next door. She feels a pull in his direction however; she is being dragging in another direction by her deceased husband’s twin brother. Now, I just thought that was a bit creepy and fortunately for me, I wasn’t the only one because the thought never quite sat right with Jane.

This book had its fair share of suspense, drama, and swoon worthy moments without reading like the cliché paranormal vampire novel. Not that I have read all that many, it was not overdone; just enough for you to know that a vampire was in the storyline. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves a good and well developed story that moves over time as in years and months instead of days and weeks. Well done Ms. Snyder!”


Sherry’s reviews are honest and funny, so definitely check out her blog!

Update

I just wanted to give you all an update on what I have been working on.  I’m very excited to say that I am writing a new adult romance novel.  New adult romance is a relatively new genre that I would characterize as being like a young adult book with a more adult (and sexy) theme!  The characters are usually college age, and the setting can even be in a college.

I don’t want to give too much away, but I will give you a little hint of what you can expect from my next book.  The main characters are Chase and Ella.  Ella is a complicated girl with a troubled past.  Chase is a tattooed bad boy millionaire.  I know I’ve got your attention now! 😉

The story will center around Chase and Ella’s relationship/friendship along with several other characters.  There were will be a lot of R-rated scenes (of course!), but I don’t want there to be sex on every page.  I am really focusing on the characters and the complexity of their relationship and history together.

There is no title as of yet.  I am kicking around two working titles right now, but I am not sure which one to choose.  I’ll probably decide when I have the cover design in front of me with the title on it.

Well, those are the only details I can give you right now, but please stay tuned for more information about this upcoming book and many more to follow.
