The lovely Stella from Ex-Libris is hosting me today to discuss the cooking in Ashwyn (the heroine cooks poultry using some special methods). There's a chance to win a copy of Ashwyn as well, so go check it out!
Lynette interviewed yours truly and is hosting a giveaway of A Happily Ever After of Her Own. Go check it out!
Isn't this lovely?
The Last Slayer
Ashera del Cid is a talented demon hunter, but when she kills a demigod's pet dragon, the hunter becomes the hunted. Her only potential ally is Ramiel, a sexy-as-hell demon. Now the two must work together to battle dragons and demigods...and the chemistry crackling between them.
Ramiel has his own reasons for offering Ashera his protection. He knows her true identity and the real reason the demigods want her dead. What he can't predict is how she'll react when she discovers he knew who she was all along...
Ashera is shocked to discover that she is the only daughter of the last slayer. To claim her destiny, she and Ramiel must join forces to face down danger and outwit their enemies. Only then will she be able to truly accept her legacy...

Can you believe September is already almost half over?
I just got done with The Last Slayer edits. So now I'm waiting to get the final e-author copy to plan marketing and promotion for the book. A part of that is doing guest blog posts. Yes, I'm volunteering! If you have a topic you'd like me to cover -- inspiration, world-building, the business side of writing, etc. -- please leave a comment or email me. (I'm also planning to do interviews as well. )
Speaking of The Last Slayer, I updated my book page with a first chapter excerpt. You can read it here.
Also, once I get the author copy, I'll give away about ten copies to my newsletter subscribers who are willing to read and review the book. If you want to be considered, feel free to sign up for my newsletter here.
This month I'm taking a workshop on sexual tension and continuing to work on the sequel to The Last Slayer. So far I have about 30% of it written, plus the synopsis. I can't wait to get it written and share it with you.
I hope all of you have a fabulous rest-of-September!
I've been sort of teasing some of you with it. But now it's official. I recently signed a contract with Carina Press to publish The Last Slayer, an urban fantasy with romantic elements.
Ashera del Cid is a demon hunter who takes great pride in her work, but when she kills a demigod's pet dragon, the hunter becomes the hunted. Her only potential ally is Ramiel, an untrustworthy, sexy-as-hell demon who destroyed her home. Now the two must work together to battle dragons and demigods...and the chemistry sizzling between them.
I'm super psyched since I really love this story. It has a smart-mouthed heroine and lots of immortal hotties with secret agendas. Oh and a hilariously subservient dragon. My agent pitched it as a "fun, fast read -- think cotton candy and roller coaster rides, but with swords, magic, and supernaturally hot sex". It's tentatively scheduled to be released sometime in fall or winter of 2011.
