Just wanted to swing by and let everyone know that the second book in the Blood Chord series has been opened up for pre-order on Amazon!
Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SJXNUE8
After the disastrous business trip that ended her mortal life, all Claire wants to do is get her freakish talents and blood-lust (and let’s be honest, regular ol’ lust too) under control, so that she can be a good mom, hide her fangs and maybe try to coax her stripper-turned-nanny into wearing some actual clothes that won’t make the local biddies fire up the gossip chain.
Thanks to her Vampire Disability Fund, Claire just might get the boring life of her dreams after all. So what if two brothers (one hot, one decidedly jerkish) have moved into the only other house in her remote neck of the woods? And so what if she hasn’t heard a peep out of her maker Bette or the other two members of The Triad? No news is good news, right?
Oh, how wrong she is…
Bite Me (approx. 65,000 words) is the second release in the wicked Blood Chord Series. It contains a fair amount of music, magic, fangs and freaks, along with adult situations– you’ve been warned!
Snag your copy for almost half-price now! Once the book goes live, the price will go back up to $4.99!
P.S: If you haven’t read the first book in the series, Kill Me, here’s your chance. For five days, Jan. 25th through the 29th (2015) you can pick up an ebook copy for free! Snag #1 and preorder #2 — that’s less than three bucks for two books. You can’t even get a latte for that price anymore 🙂

Three days ago, Claire was a wife, a mother, and very much alive… then the music called for her.
Claire has one goal for the conference— to land a few big clients so that her boss will give her a raise. Bette is at the conference on a mission—to find a human with untapped talents that she can mold and control. Bette lures Claire in with a haunting violin solo, unraveling Claire’s life as her new talents emerge. To make matters worse, Claire is attracted to two unlikely people— both can light Claire’s fire, but is either of them the only one?

I know it’s late out there in cyber-land, but I’m just so excited about my upcoming novel Blood Chord that I had to share a few updates!
First I’ve changed the name from Claire of the Moon to Blood Chord. I won’t get into the reasons behind the title change, but I’ll just say that it was necessary to avoid any confusion with a movie out by the same name.
Second I’ve updated the novels page (see link above) with new cover mock-ups and a sample banner ad. Ignore the watermarks on the images. Once I decide which images I’m going with, I’ll purchase the image and those will go away.
Third, in an effort to pre-sell some of the ebooks, I’ve just launched a Kickstarter campaign for Blood Chord. The purpose is to pre-sell so that I can cover the expenses associated with professional editing, formatting, cover art and modest marketing. Basically, I’ve got a page on that site with all the details from Blood Chord, and sponsors can choose which level of sponsorship that they would like to offer. Each level has various rewards. For example, on one level, you would receive a copy of the ebook. At another you’d get a limited edition, signed and numbered hard copy of the novel once its published. I’m even offering up the chance to name a minor character, and a copy of the original, unedited first draft!
Which brings me to something else I’d like to share. This eveing, after only launching the project on Kickstarter last night, I’ve had several backers contribute, and my campaign is up to $150! ( I should mention that if the campaign fails to reach the goal I pre-set, then the project isn’t successful and I get none of the sponsorship pledges.) So I could really use some help spreading the word! I’ve got 26 days left to reach my target and I’m crossing my fingers!
But aside from that, how great is it that complete strangers liked what they saw of my novels synopsis and cover images that they decided to plunk down some pledges? If complete strangers think my work is worthy, then it’s about time that I considered that I might very well have what it takes. Of course, I’m a sucker for validation, so there’s that.
That’s enough for tonight. I’ll keep you all posted on the developments!
