Contest time! Let's celebrate early

I'm kind of known for my rants on this blog, but right at the moment, I've nothing to rant about. LOL. I know. Amazing, right?

I'm looking forward to the April release of Flirting under a Full Moon, book 1 in my new Flirting with Fangs series.
Here's the trailer:
I'd love it if you'd tweet this for me:
Plz rt:1st book in @GoddessAsh's new series is available for pre-order!

It's actually a spin-off of the Strange Neighbors series. There's still plenty of time to read that trilogy. And here's the trailer for that one:
***Let's have a contest! Simply comment and include your email addy. I'll send two lucky winners a paperback copy of Strange Neighbors.***  

Now...Guess what? The new series is finished! I've written all three books. Book 2 was just edited and I sent in book 3 ahead of deadline. OMG. It seems like ages since I've been in this position. deadlines looming over my head! I'm happy dancing!

That doesn't mean I'm relaxing on a beach sipping iced tea. (I wish...I'm in NH, in the middle of a blizzard at the moment.)

So, what am I doing now?

1) I'm rewriting an oldie but goodie to give to my agent as soon as I'm happy with it. It's from my suspense writing days, so adding humor is the real challenge.

2) I'm having a beta reader or two look at a finished book I might self-publish. I've never done that before, so first I have to be sure it doesn't suck.

3) I'm brainstorming a new series. I'm supposed to write a proposal, but instead, my characters keep talking to me, and I have to take dictation. In other words, I'm writing the first story--like it or not.

4) Another project is in the works too. My part is pretty much finished. I'll just need to be sure it dovetails with the story now being written by the awesome Dalton Diaz. Yup. We have another collaboration in the works!

So, there's an embarassment of riches on my writing to do list. I certainly won't rant about that. What kind of jerk would I be if I did? Don't asnwer that.

Wow - busy busy busy. Best of luck on release.

Ashlyn Chase said...

Thanks all!

By the way...I was just asked how the two series are related. (Serieses?)

Anway, The Werewolf Upstairs (book 2 in the Strange Neighbors series) is about Konrad...the twin brother of Nick in Flirting Under A Full Moon.

Nick is the bad-boy brother. Who doesn't love a bad boy?
