Great Lakes Book Bash VIP Ticket Giveaway X2

Happpppy Friday, everyone! This week has been mad crazy, but it's also been fun! Our fairy tale books are releasing like hotcakes. But that's not what today's post is about. Nooooo! Today, I'm giving away TWO VIP tickets for GLBB 2017. Guess who'll be there? Yep, that's right, ME! :D

So, if you'll be in the Kalamazoo, MI area around the end of October (the 27-28, to be exact), you'll want to enter!

About the event:

Founded in 2014 by Authors Rachael Brownell & Casey L Bond, Great Lakes Book Bash is a literary conference and signing held in Kalamazoo, Michigan celebrating the fact that “Readers are our Rock Stars”. The conference is hosted by the Radisson Plaza Hotel.

In it’s first year, GLBB had over 75 exhibitors attend the one-day conference: authors, designers, swag makers, bloggers and models. Those exhibitors were met by over 150 readers from the Kalamazoo area and beyond. Some of those exhibitors led informational sessions, or panels, on specific topics related to the publishing industry. After the conference was over, everyone got together for a little party, sharing stories of the day and getting to know each other better.

In 2017, the conference is being extended to two days. It will encompass more of what readers and exhibitors asked for after the first year – more panels, more signing time and a meet and greet for exhibitors.

More information will be available soon on Great Lakes Book Bash 2017. If you don’t find the information that you are looking for on this website, please use the contact form above and we will get back to you.

Here's what a Rock Star Pass includes:

This ticket includes your admission to Great Lakes Book Bash on Friday, October 27, 2017 from 11am-2pm and Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 10:30am-2pm in the Kalamazoo Room at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in downtown Kalamazoo, MI as well as ALL panels on both Friday and Saturday. This is the ONLY ticket that will allow you VIP early admission on Saturday, October 28th. Registration will open at 10:00am. You MUST stop at the registration table located outside the event room and pick up your name badge to be granted access to the event. A master list will be available and no printed ticket will be necessary.

Are you excited?

New Release - War and Pieces ~ Frayed Fairy Tales - Season 1: Episode 1

Happy Monday, everyone! Guess what? Today's the big day! I'm on pins and needles today, let me tell you what. There's a ton of info in this post, so stay with it until the end! But let's get to what we came for: War and Pieces release day information!

Title: War and Pieces ~ Frayed Fairy Tales - Season 1: Episode 1
Authors: Tia Silverthorne Bach and N. L. Greene
Genre: Mature YA
Length: ~10k words
Buy Links: Kindle ~~~ Smashwords ~~~ Barnes and Noble ~~~ iBooks
All are just $0.99! 

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there were zombies…

That’s how it all started. Authors have created a major problem with stories like Cinder, The Dark Queen, and Asleep, and it’s wreaking havoc here in Ever After. Our queens are fighting for their lives.

Rather like Mother Nature, keeper of the fine balance that’s life in your world, tales that begin with “Once upon a time” were never meant to be messed with.

Now, Ariel is underwater with all the defenses she’s been launching, Aurora hasn’t slept in weeks, and Rapunzel is tangled in… Well, I can’t even begin to tell you.

Rather than try, I’ll let you see for yourself. You and I will talk again afterward—if I survive long enough. So, as our fateful story begins:

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away…


Start the serial series now, and get ready for a wild ride. We have 10k words scheduled to release every other day through the end of June. Yeah, it's a big story! But you don't wanna miss it.

Join our fan group on Facebook to keep up with the books, join the release day party, and enter to win some cool prizes this week while we release all of Season 1.

Pop on over to the voting group (you don't have to join to vote), and vote on your favorite fan art shoe entry!


Are you as excited as we are? Which story are you most looking forward to?

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!

Last night, he proposed to me.
I'd wanted to escape my life, the seedy strip club and the mountain of bills. I had seized the opportunity to live in a mansion, fill my days with country clubs and caviar, my nights with romance and sex.  

Maybe I should have done my homework first.

The Trophy Wife is a standalone erotic romance. It is approximately 70,000 words. An earlier edition of this book was previously released in 2013 under the name The Dumont Diaries, this is an expanded and rewritten edition of that novel, with over 50 pages of new content.

War and Pieces ~ Frayed Fairy Tales - Update and Information

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Lookit! I'm here! *grin* So, today, I'm going to share with you an update and a couple of awesome teasers for the upcoming War and Pieces ~ Frayed Fairy Tales releases. I'm also going to explain the construct (it's different, and it's sooooo exciting). I'm still having a hard time believing we've pulled it off. Let's get going, shall we?

First, I'll explain the release schedule and how we broke the books down with who wrote what.

War and Pieces is a serial series. There are ten seasons with three episodes in each. I heard that collective gasp, but stay with me. Each episode is only 10k words long. That means we'll be handing over 10k bite-sized pieces at a time, every other day. Our release schedule is crazy with Season 1: Episode 1 releasing on 4/24, and the others following at a rapid pace through the end of June.

Together, the whole set of tales clock in at around 310k words. We realized that was a lot, so we broke it down into easy-to-digest chunks. Yes, it's ALL WRITTEN. We didn't want to release the first one until we were ready to publish them all, and we wanted to do it quickly so no one got bored or forgot the first story by the time they reached the last.

Here's how we broke down the writing:
Season 1 - Rose Red's tale - by Tia Silverthorne Bach and N. L. Greene
Season 2 - Ariel's tale - by Jo Michaels and Kelly Risser
Season 3 - Rapunzel's tale - by Kelly Risser
Season 4 - Mulan's tale - by Jo Michaels and Tia Silverthorne Bach
Season 5 - Cinderella's tale - by Tia Silverthorne Bach
Season 6 - Hansel and Gretel's tale - by N. L. Greene and Jo Michaels
Season 7 - Tiger Lily's tale - by Jo Michaels
Season 8 - Jasmine's tale - by Kelly Risser and N. L. Greene
Season 9 - Aurora's tale - by N. L. Greene
Season 10 - Ninfa's tale - by Tia Silverthorne Bach and Kelly Risser

Our stories happen after the happily ever after. When paranormal creatures begin invading the realms these women live in, they're off to battle once again. But not always as princesses. Some of them have risen to the status of Queen, and some rise to that level within the story. Some have children, and some are still trying, but all are regal and intimidating.

As a look back, here are the covers:

Can you figure out the paranormal creatures?

And the book trailer:

I do hope you're all ready. Our first release is Monday! Yes, we're nervous, but I think you'll love the stories.

Teasers! These were made by the always awesome Jaci Chaney (click to view larger).

Our coloring competition ended yesterday, and the entries are fantastic! We'll be launching public voting Monday as well, so be sure you come on back for information on where you can give your opinion on which is the best.

If you haven't pre-ordered book one, you can do so for just $0.99 on allllllll ebook platforms. Here are the links:

Kindle - Preorder
Smashwords - Preorder
Barnes and Noble - Preorder
iBooks - Preorder

I can't even convey how excited I am.

Which story are you most looking forward to?

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!

Great New BookTuber Discovered - Thoughts and Reflections on RAI 2017

Happy Monday, good people of the blogosphere! What a crazy few months it's been. My fingers are crossed this will be a regular thing once again. I miss my blog!

Anyway, today, I'm going to introduce you all to a new booktuber I met while at RAI, and throw a few of my thoughts out there on the event in general.

As you all know, I'm always on the lookout for folks willing to give their genuine opinions on books they read. Not only does this booktuber speak well, she's incredibly effervescent. Love watching her channel so far. While she and I were talking, she told me that if you send her an ARC, it's guaranteed to get a video review. Not a bad deal, in my opinion.

Be sure and check out her channel here "Steph's Rom Book Talk." Catch her RAI video here! Follow her Facebook page here!


Now, on to thoughts about RAI.

I've loved this event since last year (my first), and I can't say enough about the amazingness that's Liz C. Long. Roanoke Author Invasion is a true signing. There are no panels, no activities outside of the signing except the after party, and there are only authors in the signing hall. Fans get in FREE.

Yep, that's right, I said FREE.

Because of that, people come from far and wide to get their books signed, take photos with their favorite authors, and BUY BOOKS. They have more money in their pockets to purchase the books because they didn't have to pay to get in the door. Makes a ton of sense to me.

Plus, Liz does a fantastic job of marketing the event locally. She's on the news, in the papers, and on the radio constantly. Her event draws a huge crowd. I believe there were over 300 free tickets claimed this year.

Yeah, my jaw dropped, too.

In addition to the single day being a behemoth sales day, I also got to meet some fantastic bloggers and book reviewers (see Stephanie above). It was a constant stream of people coming by my table, engaging me in conversation, and admiring/buying my books. I must've handed out hundreds of prints of my book covers, and people snagged a gazillion Frayed Fairy Tale buttons.

You also get to take a ton of pictures. Fun and funny, or laid back and casual, you won't be sorry. I'm Batman in the first pic :D

All in all, I'd say, if you can attend this event as a reader, or be a signing author, don't think twice. Click the button. You get time with the authors you love, and that's one of the things that's most precious.

What events do you love?

Well, that's all for today, folks! Until next time, WRITE ON!
