Wake Me when the Sun Goes Down has come to Episode! Well, the first three chapters, at least. Want to see more? This is where you come in. The more people who read through all three chapters on the app, the more chance that they’ll put in an order for the rest of the book.
What is Episode? It’s all about interactive storytelling, in a fun, animated format. What does that mean for you? This is basically like reading an animated comic book on your phone (any Android/iOS device) for free when you download their app. You get to make choices about who you talk to, how you interact, even what you’re wearing! This means fans of the Forged Bloodlines series can take things to the next level and interact with the story in a new, fun way.
Here’s the link to get the apps (or you can find them on your phone): http://pocketgems.com/episode-interactive/
My story is listed under the “Fantasy” category and then under the “pilots” section.
In addition to my story, there are dozens of other animated stories there and if you can even try the writer’s portal if you’re interested in trying your hand at animating your own story for fun.
I feel like I’m in the home stretch for getting Kiss Me When the Sun Goes Down to you guys, and I hope to have it out in the next couple of weeks. I’ll have the cover reveal here shortly as well as some teasers too.
After that, I’ll be taking a break from writing for a few weeks to attend to some business stuff I’ve been putting off for far too long. We’ll be redoing a couple of the covers and changing up some of the blurbs. I’ll also be reworking Moonsong, tightening up the beginning, and putting back in some of the racier bits I initially cut out in preparation for working on the sequel – Scarlett’s story.
The rest of the chapters (14-24) for Always Talk to Strangers on Episode for Android devices has finally been released too, so head over to check those out if you’ve been following along the story. I’m also working on adapting Wake Me When the Sun Goes Down for Episode, and that should be released any time now.
It’s available, just in time for your holiday weekend reading!

Kym Grosso, Luca’s Magic Embrace (Immortals of New Orleans, Book Two).

Have you ever wanted to take the world of Forged Bloodlines out for a spin? Write yourself in there as an original character? Kill off characters you hate? Decide who Anja belongs with once and for all? Now’s your chance! I’m holding a fan fiction contest for the Forged Bloodlines series. I would like to offer prizes in multiple categories (such as most romantic, best action, snappiest dialogue, most true to character, steamiest…), but we’ll see how many entries we get. There is no minimum length and any rating is accepted.
What do you get if you win? A signed copy of Release Me When the Sun Goes Down (or you can substitute one of my others if you prefer), a $10 Amazon gift card and your choice of some Forged Bloodlines swag that’s currently only available to my Streetbots team. Anyone who enters must give me permission to post the winning entries on my blog, but I will give you full credit. It’d be extra awesome if you decide to post it on fanfiction.net or mibba or one of the other fan fiction hubs.
This contest will run through April 30th, so you’ve got time to put something together be it a one-shot or a multi-chapter epic saga. You can set your story at any point in the Forged Bloodlines timeline, even in the future or the past and use any characters as you will. To enter, contact me through the website or through facebook pm and we’ll chat about how to submit.
What do you guys think? Is that deadline doable? I’m flexible here, so sing out if you have any questions.
