Favorite Quote Friday #117—Rendezvous With Yesterday

Happy Friday!  What a fantastic week it's been!  Thanks to all of you who have been pre-ordering Rendezvous With Yesterday (The Gifted Ones Book 2), it has hit #1 and #2 on several Amazon Bestseller Lists!!

It has also hit #1, #2, or #3 on several Hot New Release lists.  Woohoo!!  You are the best!!  Thank you so much!  You've been so supportive of my leap from traditional publishing to self-publishing, and of my launching a new series.  I hope you know how much that means to me.

I know you've probably heard me say this before, but pre-orders are very important to authors.   And now that I've gone indie, I have access to pre-order numbers.  So to thank readers who pre-order Robert and Bethany's story, I've launched a big RENDEZVOUS WITH YESTERDAY PRE-ORDER CONTEST.

Every time 500 new pre-orders roll in, I'm going to give a prize away to a randomly selected winner.  Prizes will include Amazon Gift Cards, signed books and swag, tote bags, coffee mugs, keychain flashlights, and more.  The more pre-orders there are, the bigger the prize will be.  :-)  To enter, just fill out this form:

The contest is open internationally, except where prohibited by law.  If I run into any difficulty sending a gift card to an international winner, I reserve the right to substitute another prize.  

500 of you have already pre-ordered.  So the first contest winner is . . .

Congratulations!!  You've won a signed copy of A Sorceress of His Own + an Immortal Guardians and The Gifted Ones swag pack.  

This week, an overwhelming majority of the questions I've received have been about Rendezvous With Yesterday:  

Will Rendezvous With Yesterday be available on Audible?

Yes, it will.  The audiobook will be narrated by Kirsten Potter and will release the same day as the eBook and paperback.  But it usually takes longer for it to show up on Audible.  I'll post a link as soon as I see it go up for pre-order.

Will Rendezvous With Yesterday be available on iBooks?

Yes.  But I can't make it available for pre-order there until my formatter has properly formatted it for me.  I'll post a link as soon as it goes up for pre-order there.

Will rendezvous With Yesterday be available on Nook?

Yes, it will.  Here's a link: Rendezvous With Yesterday — Nook

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  I thought today I would give you a quote from Rendezvous With Yesterday that would appeal to fans of both The Gifted Ones series and my Immortal Guardians series.  It features Robert and Bethany (the hero and heroine) and Seth:
Beth contemplated him curiously.  “Who exactly are you, Seth?  Or perhaps the better question would be:  What exactly are you?” 
He strolled forward.  “I knew your cell battery would die, so I thought I would drop by and offer you a ride.” 
“How did you know the battery would die?” she pounced.  “I just charged it yesterday." 
He arched a brow.  “Shall we go?” 
She looked at Robert.  “He isn’t going to answer me, is he?” 
“Nay, he seems disinclined to do so.” 
“Fine,” she muttered, holstering her weapon.  “But I gotta tell ya,” she groused, “the mystery part of this whole tall, dark, handsome, mystery-man thing you’ve got going can really be annoying sometimes.” 
Seth’s smile widened.  “So I have been told.”
Have a wonderful weekend!



  1. love Seth! looking forward to the new read :)

  2. Seth can be so infuriating some times. But we love him anyway. It's one of those quirks!

    1. Me, too. :-) He's a fun character to write. And scenes from his book are already dancing through my head. ;-)
