We have a winner!

Thanks to everyone who voted, it was a really close race! Counting the four offline votes we got, the cover on the right narrowly edged out to become the winner. Random selection (don’t you just love online dice rollers?) picked Seleana as the winner for the free book and she’ll get to choose between an ebook copy and a signed print copy of Miss Me When the Sun Goes Down.

I am done with edits as of this morning, so it’ll be out very soon, just waiting on James to work his magic with some final tweaks on formatting for Kindle and Nook.
Stay tuned for a sneak peek.

Also, Nine Steps to Sara is a freebie today through Wednesday on Amazon here. This will be the last time you can snap this one up for free for the foreseeable future, so pick up a copy today, or if you’ve already read and enjoyed it, tell a friend!

Vote on cover art for Miss Me When the Sun Goes Down

Hey guys. James, in a stroke of geniosity, has proposed an alternate cover for Miss Me When the Sun Goes Down. Since we haven’t had a giveaway in a while, I thought we’d put it to a vote. Simply weigh in with your opinion in the comments section and it automatically enters you in a drawing for a free copy of the new book. I’ll leave it up to you whether you’d prefer to have the ebook copy (which will be ready a lot faster) or a signed print copy (which will be a lot prettier).

So, let’s hear it – which cover do you prefer? The one on the left or the one on the right?

Miss Me When the Sun Goes Down Cover Reveal

Here is the cover for Miss Me When the Sun Goes Down that James has been working on. I love how lonely and gray it is, sort of fitting with Anja’s mood. And here is the blurb I’ve been working on for the fourth book in the Forged Bloodlines Series.

Little old me, Anja Evans – art college drop out, relative newbie in vampire society and newly single without Bishop by my side – the new Jarl of the Northwest? Great googly moogly… how did I get myself into these things?

There are new responsibilities for Anja to live up to as well as her growing entourage of friends crowding her out of house and home. With the news that Bishop is out of the picture, Jakob is back, his patience growing thin as he waits for Anja to put aside her petty distractions and take her place by his side. But Anja doesn’t want to spend her life as an ornament, she’s resolved to bring a sense of humanity back to the vampire community. With her newfound abilities (and a few well placed allies), the Order doesn’t stand a chance against Anja and her determination to provide Sanctuary to any vampire that needs it. But the dangers in Anja’s life might come from within the walls she’s built to keep herself safe.

I’m Back!

Hi guys! I’m happy to say the move is done (they’re taking away the last POD today) and I’m semi-settled into my new office. Sure, there are still boxes everywhere and I have to do laundry every three days, but the important thing is I’m back to writing on the next book.

So far I’m about 36,000 words into it, and all I can say is, Anja’s life is sort of spinning out of control right about now. Hopefully she’ll learn to swim before the sharks start to circle!

In semi-related news, I’m giving away free copies of Wake Me When the Sun Goes Down on Amazon for today and tomorrow. So, if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, now you can pick it up for free. And if you enjoyed it, please tell a friend.

Off for a quick bite to eat and then it’s back to Anja and company. I think it’s just about time for Jakob to stick his nose into her business again.

Soon to come
- dream casting for The Company of Shadows
- an excerpt from Miss Me When the Sun Goes Down
- possibly a character interview… who would you guys like to hear from?

Going MIA for a while

Hey guys, I just wanted to give you a heads up that the website will be down for a week or so. Don’t worry, I haven’t
disappeared off the face of the Earth, I’ll just be incommunicado for a while. If all goes well, we’re moving next week, and
the internet won’t be on in our new place until June 11th. With the move, the new book has been put on hold for another week or so, I’d say. I hate the delay, but there’s just too much going on to try and fit in the writing too, and I don’t want to be
so distracted when I sit down and get to it.

I swear I’m not a tool!

From time to time I get emails from fans who use the “Contact Lisa” function of the website. In general, I try to respond to them as soon as I can, I love to hear from you guys!!! I realized a couple of weeks ago that the system wasn’t showing me the person’s email address to reply to, but the system’s address!!! So, I apologize for some of the emails I thought I was replying to that disappeared into the ether. I’ve saved the last few I’ve gotten, waiting for my hubby to fix the problem so I could reply directly. Well, the problem is fixed for future emails, but we have no way to retrieve the email address for the messages I’ve already received.

I thought I’d reply here to a few emails, so you know I’m not being a tool on purpose, I really just haven’t had the ability to get back to you.

Lisa W: Thanks for asking about the Fallen series, I’m glad you’re enjoying it! Yes, there are definitely at least one or two Mercy books waiting to be written I’ll be working on one later this year. Then there will be a series from her daughter’s POV. Then I might pick back up with Mercy again later, we’ll see how it goes. There are always stories to be told when you have immortal beings in the picture.

Lisa B: I’m sorry you don’t like cliffhangers, my Mercy books are verrrra cliffhangery, I’ll admit. Maybe you’d prefer one of the stand alone books like The Touch or Pretty Witches All in a Row?

Kristen S: Thanks for reaching out to me, I don’t mind friendly stalkers at all, lol. I don’t know that I’d call myself a “speed writer” per se, but I do try to stick to a pretty rigid schedule with my writing. If you write to me again, I’d be happy to share my experiences as an author and answer any questions you might have on my writing process.

Tommy B: I think it’s a fantastic idea to draft a map of the vampire factions for my Forged Bloodlines series! I’ll get my hubby working on it. We’ll definitely see more of the different reps once we get to the Gathering in Book 5.

Michelle L: I’m pretty sure my response to you was one of the ones that went into the ether. I’m sorry I couldn’t help you out, but I don’t really have any swag made up. I’m thinking of getting some products available in time for the holidays with CafePress, but nothing at the moment.

Again, the system seems to be working now, so if anyone wants to try contacting me I promise I’ll try to respond.

Hopefully the mailing list is working as it should be. So far I’m only sending out emails when I have a new release, but I’m putting together a plan to release some original content, serial style on a monthly basis. What do you guys think? Would you be interested in receiving a chapter of something only available via the mailing list? I’m thinking maybe some behind the scenes stuff for Rob’s past with Jakob, circa WWII.

In other news, I’ve got the outline all mapped out for Miss Me When the Sun Goes Down, it just wants a bit more filling out before I start on the writing. It’ll be a different animal writing this one since we’re moving the first week of June, and I’m splitting my time between book stuff and house stuff, so it won’t be completed as quickly. Hopefully it’ll be worth the wait though.
