Happy Friday! I have a lot of exciting news to share with you today!
First: I finished the first draft of Immortal Guardians Book 6. Woohoo!! It will feature Ethan as hero and will be entitled Shadows Strike. I also finished the first draft of an Immortal Guardians novella that will appear in the On the Hunt anthology, alongside stories by Alexandra Ivy, Rebecca Zanetti, and Hannah Jayne. The title of my novella will be "Phantom Embrace." I'm not ready to say who the hero and heroine of that one is yet. ;-)
Now . . . I begin editing. I actually like this part, though I know some authors abhor it. I enjoy reading back through manuscripts for the first time. There's always something in there that I forgot I wrote. :-D Shadows Strike came in long (most of my manuscripts do), so I'm going to try to cut about 30 pages before submitting it. That's always a challenge. But I think I cut 30 pages from Night Unbound, too, so I know I can do it. :-)
And speaking of Night Unbound . . .
Awesome news! Night Unbound has been nominated for Paranormal Cravings' Readers Choice Award for Best Paranormal Romance 2014!!

While you're there, you may want to click on "Get Notifications" in the "Like" menu. Facebook has been steadily reducing the number of fans who can see posts from the pages they've liked. According to the latest numbers I've read, posts on most pages reach less than 5% of the people who have liked the page unless the page owner pays to promote every post (something most page owners can't afford to do). I don't want you to miss out on giveaways and sneak peeks and some of the other fun stuff that goes on over there. And, from what I understand, selecting "Get Notifications" will help us stay connected and enable you to keep seeing my posts. :-)
Rave reviews for Night Unbound are still rolling in. Here are some snippets from two of the latest. :-)
I want to read about an Alpha hero that will do anything for his
heroine...Zach is the kind of character I'm thinking about. Wow...I
about this book was so freaking good. I highly recommend both the
series and this book. I think you could probably read this book if you

It's time once more for Favorite Quote Friday! Today I thought I'd give you another quote from Night Unbound, Immortal Guardians Book 5. This one features Lisette (the heroine) and Tracy (Lisette's Second or human guard). The words in italics are spoken telepathically.
