Cover Reveals & a giveaway: S.T. Bende’s Tur and Elsker

Today I’ve got another cover reveal, two actually. Both are from author S.T. Bende for her Elsker Saga books. And there’s a giveaway! Check out Tur and Elsker:

The Elsker Saga #0.5 
by ST Bende

Inga Andersson is the envy of every girl in Asgard. On the surface she has it all — great friends, a job as Odin’s personal fight choreographer, and a happy ever after with her realm’s hottest assassin. But when evil invades Asgard, her perfect world comes crashing down. Someone is planning to kill off the gods, and Inga’s best friend Ull is first on their list. With the Norse apocalypse a nanosecond away, Inga has to decide how she’ll spend her final moments of freedom. Because from the moment this battle begins, Inga’s happily ever after will be nothing more than a memory.

Some things are worth fighting for.

ELSKER-Ebook-03-31-14 ELSKER
The Elsker Saga #1
by ST Bende

You don’t win the heart of an immortal assassin without making a few enemies along the way.

Kristia Tostenson prefers Earl Grey to Grey Goose and book clubs to nightclubs, but when she transfers from her one-stoplight town to Cardiff University in Wales she falls in love with Ull Myhr.  Her new boyfriend isn’t exactly what she was expecting.  He’s an honest to goodness Norse God – an immortal assassin fated to die at Ragnarok, the battle destined to destroy Asgard and Earth.  Kristia’s crazy visions are the only thing that can save their realms.  Her orderly life just got very messy.

Before finding domestic bliss in suburbia, ST Bende lived in Manhattan Beach (became overly fond of Peet’s Coffee) and Europe… where she became overly fond of the musical Cats. Her love of Scandinavian culture and a very patient Norwegian teacher inspired the ELSKER series. She hopes her characters make you smile and that one day pastries will be considered a health food.

Cover Reveal: Ana Blaze’s “A Late Thaw” #romance

A Late Thaw by Ana Blaze Cover Reveal banner

I had the pleasure of reading this sweet little romance when it was originally released. Now it’s back with an even better cover. Check it out!

2014ALT0408Book Details

TITLE: A Late Thaw

AUTHOR: Ana Blaze

GENRE: Comedy, Contemporary, Romance (Adult)

RELEASE DATE: April 2014 (originally published October 27, 2013)


SYNOPSIS: Barrett, Vermont, home to nearly as many goats as people. It’s the perfect picturesque spot to stop for cocoa after a ski trip or to buy your Christmas tree from a hunky farmer wearing snug jeans and a pair of well-worn boots. Kiley St. Claire isn’t there for either. She’s come home for one reason and one reason only: make enough money waiting tables at the local tourist trap to survive her final semester of graduate school. Of course she is going to have to see that Christmas tree farmer eventually. That’s fine; Kiley isn’t the same nerdy little girl he palled around with. Nope, she’s done crushing on Cole Thomas. Totally done.

Cole thought he was ready, but seeing Kiley again is a punch to the gut. She rejected him and ran away without explanation. He still couldn’t imagine a future with another woman.  Now at least he’ll have a chance to say what he’s needed to say for years and then, just maybe, he’ll be ready to move on. He only wishes she didn’t look so damn good in her uniform.


PRIZE: Ebook copy of Love and Other Games

Love and Other Games is a collection of four sexy new adult stories centered around athletes competing in the Winter Games by Ana Blaze, Melinda Dozier, Aria Kane, and Kara Leigh Miller.

#Writemotivation April – First update

I signed up for Write Motivation for April since I’m not doing Camp Nano. With three books releasing this month and NO edits, I’m hoping I’ll have more time to read and write than I did when I tried this the first time around (February’s spectacular failure). If you missed my posts in February, here’s what it’s all about:

The Rules:

  1. Make a list of realistic goals for the month – and achieve them.
  2. Make a Blog Post every week (There is no specific day – just try to make an update post on a weekly basis). This is to help us keep tabs on our own progress, and for others to cheer us on if it’s a difficult week. Please link to the post in the #writemotivation hashtag and/or in the G+ group.
  3. Visit your #writemotivation team mates blogs, and participate in the #writemotivation hashtag to cheer people on

Here are my hopefully realistic goals:

  1. “Camp-Finish-Crap-Instead-O”: work toward finishing projects already in progress
  2. NO NEW PROJECTS (I’m super serial, you guys, any new ideas have to be hastily jotted down, and then promptly forgotten)
  3. Read books as my secret reviewer self
  4. Promo for my releases this month even though it makes me feel dirty

*crosses fingers that she’ll succeed this time*
