FEARLESS Release Day

Fearless CoverHOORAY! Today is release day for FEARLESS, book 2 in the Survival Race series. I’m super excited to share Fearless’ awesome first review (4 stars) from Goodreads!

“This is the follow up book to Captive and a fantastic piece of sci fi romance…I found the world building here to be truly fascinating…. Very good follow up to Captive. The first book explored being taken prisoner by aliens and trying to survive whereas this book explored the idea of living as a native on a planet dominated by a brutal race. Fans of the first book will be delighted to catch up with characters from the previous book and new readers will surely be clamouring to catch up! Recommended”- Marta Cox

You can read a sexy excerpt from the book and enter to win a free copy at Taking Time For Mommy’s blog today. Here is the book’s blurb…

Myia, a shaman-in-training, wants desperately to protect her peaceful village from the barbaric Highland invaders. To hone her powers of prophetic visions and healing, the village elders send Myia on a quest to heal the Highland leader’s heart and stop a brewing war. Myia’s mended many souls before, so this should be an effortless duty…until she meets the gorgeous, stubborn Highland warlord.

Kedric, a gladiator who escaped enslavement, only wants to liberate the villagers from their common foe-a race that breeds humans for blood sport and genetic experiments. Fueled by his rage, Kedric is determined to take down the brutal enemy. So when a raven-haired beauty with a body made for sin tries to sabotage his mission, Kedric wants her gone. Yet no woman’s touch has ever left Kedric more annoyed…or aroused. Kedric knows he should shun her soothing embrace-but he can’t seem to stay away. As their passion grows, Kedric must decide between fighting his war or surrendering his rage-and his heart-for Myia’s love.

I am blessed to have a wonderfully supportive network of family and friends. If you follow the blog then you’re probably aware that Tuesday was release day for my first novel, CAPTIVE, and that I’ve been doing a blog tour this week.

All Tuesday long I’d received congratulatory messages on my personal and author Facebook pages. It was humbling to see everyone’s excitement for me. Friends checked out my bog tour and made comments on my Facebook page, they shared my Amazon buy link on their walls, and many of their friends liked and commented as well. How cool was that?

Some even kept an eye on the Amazon Best Sellers Rank all day. So did I, which I know I probably shouldn’t do, but couldn’t resist. I couldn’t believe it when CAPTIVE made into the top 100 in the kindle store for Sci-Fi Romance. It started out at 95 in the morning and at one point, around midnight I think, it went as low as #32! The rank for the whole Kindle store was #10,283 (it was ranked like #500,000 a couple days before 🙂 ). Thank you to everyone who bought a copy!

Friends also called when they found reviews for CAPTIVE. I wonder if reading reviews can count as exercise, because it’s a heart-pounding activity. So far they have been great, and I am very excited about the positive feedback. Especially from two of the reviewers who said they don’t normally read sci-fi romance, but loved my book. What a great feeling! Now I’m sure I’ll receive some negative reviews. Not everyone likes everything. Even my favorite authors received hateful 1 star reviews for books I loved. So when that happens, I’ll just have to re-read the good ones, and pretend the bad ones don’t matter. And call my support network to cry on their shoulders. 😉

As we were leaving, he texted some local friends and asked if they would come over for a toast. They did! They dropped what they were doing at 8:30pm (which was probably helping kids with homework since school doesn’t let out for two more weeks) and came over for champagne. Who doesn’t love an impromptu party?

No words can fully express my gratitude to all those who have supported me in my writing. I realize not every author is as fortunate, which is why I want to let everyone know how much I appreciate and love you! Thank you so very much!
