Snag a copy of my novel KILL ME!

After waiting several weeks (and chanting in the moonlight, and chasing a rabbit so I could pet it’s foot) Amazon has finally lowered the price of KILL ME to $0.00 – so it’s finally FREE! I have no idea how long the mighty ‘Zon will keep it free, so I’d suggest you hop on over there and snag a copy pronto. (Ebook is free. Not the paperback)

KILL ME on Amazon

For those of you without an eReader, or who just prefer a physical copy in your hot little hands, I’m also running a paperback giveaway over on GoodReads, so there’s still hope for you yet!

KILL ME Giveaway on GoodReads


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.


“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
