After last week's rant, I've settled down and really have nothing much to expound upon. I do have some updates for you, though.
The Book of the Month has been changed. February's featured book, Triple Burn, will be available as a free download the last weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) of the month. All other days, the e-book is only $0.99. The same goes for March's featured book, The Falcon of Imenotash. It, too, will be offered as a free download the last weekend of the month. Don't forget to leave a review of the book(s) you read.
On Friday last week, I had an interview with Tony Tellado who hosts Sci-Fi Talk. It's not live yet, but you can be sure announcements and the link to listen will go out when it is. The 20-minute interview discusses The Eagle at Dawn, the Immortal Shifters series, shape shifters in general, and the writing process. The last may disappoint, because I don't really have a process. Paranormal romance might not be what one thinks about with regard to science fiction, but let's hope it finds a receptive audience among the listeners anyway.
I have two more interviews coming up. One will be with AdriAnne Headen who hosts The Writers Television. This will be an face-to-face meeting in my hometown, probably at one of my favorite lunchtime eateries, Un Mundo Cafe. The interview with Ms. Headen has yet to be scheduled. The other interview will be on Thursday, April 2, at 5:00 PM EDST with Richard Dugan who hosts Peabody Award nominated Tell Me Your Story in Santa Barbara, CA. This will be both a live radio broadcast and podcast. The theme of our interview is "possibilities."
I have events coming up, too. On Saturday, March 21, I'll be at the Reader's Envy Legendary Book Bash at the Double Tree Suites in Lexington, Kentucky. My bestie, Cindra, will accompany and (probably) do much of the driving. Driving in unfamiliar cities unnerves me. Admission is free to the public. I'll have copies of my latest books to sell: Shot from the Hip (a collection of all my western short stories) and Hogtied (which was released on Valentine's Day). Whichever book(s) you read, please leave a review!
Speaking of events, more are coming up. Check the EVENTS page of the Hen House Publishing website for updates.
I've made decent progress on my next book, tentatively titled F-Stop. Another tentative title is Focus. The idea for this book sparked after yet another failed attempt to read a BDSM romance and, consequently, to like it. I know the sub-genre's popular, very popular. But I don't see the appeal of heroes who treat women with no respect and spineless heroines who roll over and take it. Regardless, this story is not focused on BDSM, but does have a strong theme of respect running through it. Can you hear Aretha Franklin singing now?
That's it for now. I'll probably be back to ranting next week.
