New Quickie Release – Saved by the Alpha by Alex Owens

New post up on Alex’s site, announcing the release of her quickie novella Saved By The Alpha! To recap:

new saved alex version cover

Amazon Link

Blurb:

When Roxy Thompson decides to explore the wilderness on horseback, she only intends to be gone a few hours and figures it will be safe enough– as long as she stays on the trails close to the resort. What she doesn’t count on is a mountain lion spooking her horse and then turning its sights on her. A wolf saves her in the nick of time, but it’s the handsome recluse Caleb that nurses her back to health… and then some.

On Sale for only 99-cents now, or borrow the book for free with your Kindle Unlimited subscription!

Blood Chord Series #2- Bite Me – Available for Pre-order

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!

Bite Me (Blood Chord #2)

Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00SJXNUE8

Blurb:

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 🙂

Kill Me (Blood Chord #1 ) Free on Amazon for five days only! (It’s been more than a year since it was last on sale to boot!) Click to get your copy today: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007UPOLR6

Blurb:

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?

“He’s loved her for thousands of years, but in this lifetime Pia doesn’t remember him… yet.”

 

New Release – Crow: The Prequel by Alex Owens

It’s live! Crow: The Prequel is now available on Amazon. While the rest of the Crow episodes are modern-day and told from both Beylin & Pia’s viewpoints, the prequel goes back in time by about a hundred years– to one of Pia’s past lives– and is told solely from Beylin’s perspective so that you can get to know him better! ❤

crow prequel banner two (july 2013) copy copy

BLURB:

He’s loved her for thousands of years, but in this lifetime she doesn’t remember him… yet.

This prequel to the first episode of the Crow series is focused on giving readers a glimpse into one of Pia’s past lives and to show Beylin hard at work as a Memory Stealer and Soul Bearer.

SERIES BLURB:

Cassiopeia “Pia” Alexander is floundering. She can’t pick a college major, her love life is virtually non-existent and the only thing good in her life seems to be her job as an Animal ER Nurse. Even that doesn’t feel like enough, though.

Beylin Callaghan belongs to the Brotherhood, who give souls a winged-ride from one life to the next and remove the memories from each soul so that they have a fresh slate in their new incarnations.

But he’s keeping a secret– a secret that when exposed, will bind Pia’s fate to his own. For better or worse.

***On a side note, I’d recommend reading this one first before going on to the first few episodes that are already available 🙂

P.S. For two days only (7/14 – 7/15) the first three installments will be FREE on Amazon. That’s right, you can grab the new Prequel, as well as Episodes One and Two. Feel free to spread the word too!! 🙂

About the Author:

Alex Owens is a woman with little free time, which means she stays up all hours of the night putting pen to paper. By day she’s June Cleaver in jeans, and by night she writes. Somewhere in the middle of all that she finds time to tend ‘dem babies, fry up the bacon and curl up with a good book (or ten), much to the chagrin of her family. She’s currently at work on her paranormal Blood Chord Series and the New Adult fantasy series, Crow.

BOOK BLURB:

Three days ago, she was a wife, a mother, and very much alive… then the music called to her.
Marketing maven Claire has one goal for the Music Expo– to land a few whales so that her boss will give her a badly needed raise. She puts on her game face and courts the industry’s elite until her plans are derailed by hotness-in-high-heels.

Vampire Bette wants to find a human with untapped talents that she can mold and control. Using a haunted violin, she lures Claire in with her lilting song and bewitching smile. In that moment, Claire’s life is unraveled and she finds herself with more than strange dreams and overdue bills to worry about. Much more.

To make matters worse, Claire is attracted to two unlikely people– Bette and her hunky but pale associate, Gregor. Both can light Claire’s fire, but is either of them the only one?

Unfortunately for Claire, life isn’t all song lyrics and seduction. Tied to darkness by blood and power, Claire must harness her abilities if she has any hope of returning home to her daughter and regaining her former life.

REVIEWS:

“When I started reading Kill me, the first in a trilogy by new author Alex Owens I expected the usual – Vampires, Intrigue, Drama and a little bit of Spice.  What I did not expect was the hilarious writing! A few pages into the book and it is crystal clear that Owen’s strong suit is her ability to hit the funny bone every few sentences. ”   ~Aditi, READioactive Book Blog

“Not your traditional, action-packed vampire tale, but it is one that’s full of conflict – emotional, psychological, and (at times) extremely physical. Fast, fun, and . . . dare I say it, empowering . . . this is a wonderful story and one that will leave you anxious for more.” ~Sally, Bending the Bookshelf Blog
“Overall, a fun, indulgent novel that will appeal to any woman who has struggled with being a working mom and wished for secret powers.” ~ Christine, Ensconced in YA
“I made time for this book. I wanted to know what was going to happen next.” ~ Mark, Masquerade Crew

Kill Me’s Appearance on VampChix & Bite Club

Doh! I completely spaced on telling everyone that my book Kill Me made an appearance over on the wildly popular blog VampChix & Bite Club.

Honestly, this summer is kicking my tail.

Between my other job as a Photographer (wedding and Senior portrai season!), kids, baseball, helping my sis plan her wedding, writing, prepping for back to school… well, you get the picture. I’m uber-busy.

Which is why I’m so thankful for other blogs that read, review or even post about my books. Nothing like web copy that I don’t have to do a thing for!

My Novel KILL ME is now available at Sony!

Kill Me (book one in the paranormal / UF BLOOD CHORD series) is now available for those of you out there that have Sony ereaders! I did notice, however, that no only is the author bio incorrect, but it appears to have someone else’s bio pasted in place of the correct one. Sigh.

At least it’s active now, though!
