Favorite Quote Friday—Blade of Darkness

Happy Friday!!  This has been yet another exciting week for me. Thanks to all of you who have pre-ordered Blade of Darkness, it became a #1 Amazon Best Seller and hit several Top 100 lists.  So awesome!!

Thank you so much for sharing in my excitement, for your wonderful comments on Facebook and Twitter, and for your emails.  And thank you for pre-ordering Aidan's book!!  I hope you'll enjoy his and Dana's story.  :-)

Here's something else that thrilled me this week:  seeing my book alongside books by Christine Feehan and Stephen King on a Top 100 Most Wished For list on Amazon.  I mentioned this on Facebook, but would like to say it again here...

For the new writers out there who are feeling frustrated or discouraged:  Don't give up. Persevere. When I was wading through rejection letters and struggling to land that first publishing contract, if someone had shown me this and told me one of my books would appear alongside books by two of my all-time favorite authors on a Most Wished For list on Amazon, my jaw would've dropped.  :-)

And for the bloggers out there:  Author's Taproom is hard at work, planning a big blog tour to celebrate Blade of Darkness's upcoming release.  There will be character interviews, Author QandAs, a Dream Cast, excerpts, Top 5 lists, reviews, and more.  If you'd like to join the fun, you can sign up HERE

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday!  Today I have another sneak peek into the pages of Blade of Darkness for you.  It features Aidan and Dana, the hero and heroine:

“Sit down,” she ordered, nodding toward her bed.
He cast it an uncertain look. “I can’t. I’ll stain the covers.” 
She stared at him. “You’re kidding, right?” He sported deep wounds that bled profusely and he was concerned about staining her bedding? 
“Perhaps if I cleaned up a wee bit—” 
“Sit your ass down,” she ordered, pointing at the queen-sized bed. 
Eyebrows flying up, he sat so swiftly she almost laughed.
I'm designing some cool Blade of Darkness swag for you.  Can't wait to start giving it away!

Have a wonderful weekend!!



  1. More awesomeness then I was prepared for.
    Thank you for the advice to writers, it helps. I can't imagine how excited you were to that shot from Amazon.

    1. I'm so thrilled by the many opportunites that are open to writers today that weren't there when I first started trying to get published. It's really an exciting time to be a writer. :-)

  2. Cannot wait for this book!! So awesome about the most wished for list!! How exciting for you and well deserved in my opinion <3
