Eternal Rider Sale!

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

I’m slinking out of the deadline cave for a quick announcement: Last week, Sin Undone was on sale, and this week, it’s Eternal Rider!

Until December 26th, Eternal Rider (in ebook format) can be purchased at a HUGE discount at U.S. retailers.

So if you haven’t picked it up for your e-reader, now’s your chance to get it for $1.99. Here’s the Kindle link and Nook link.

Even if you don’t have an ereader, you can download several different apps for your computer or cell phone that will allow you to read ebooks, so you don’t have to miss out on this special price (or on other books with awesome special pricing or ebook exclusives.)

Now, back to deadline hell! :grin:



Thank You!!!

Today was release day for Immortal Rider in the UK! I’m thrilled to have my books on the shelves over there! I’ve made no secret of the fact that I’d live in the UK if I could, so…YAY!

On this side of the pond, Immortal Rider released last week, and this week my US readers gave me an early Christmas present — they put Immortal Rider on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists!!! I can’t thank you enough!!!!

I had a really great release week (with one exception I’ll tell you about in a minute,) between awesome reviews, bestseller lists, and an appearance in A Klingon Christmas Carol. Folks, if you haven’t seen A Klingon Christmas Carol, I urge you to do it if you can. Even my mom, who isn’t a Star Trek fan, LOVED it. I got to play a Klingon in a fun scene, and I even had a line — in Klingon! It was AWESOME. And yeah, this is me as a Klingon (makeup and costume wasn’t quite finished yet. I’ll share more pics later!)

Now for the exception to my great week I mentioned above.

Okay, so remember Hexe, our new puppy? Well, I’m SUPER picky about what I feed her, from her regular food to her treats. She gets nothing that isn’t all natural, no grains, and has to be made in the US. I learned my lesson with a diabetic cat that a pet’s health can truly suffer from diet (I even have an entire section on my website dedicated to feline nutrition.)

So anyway, Hexe got a treat that was supposedly made from quality, all natural ingredients. And ingredients I THOUGHT came from the US. Turns out, the chicken used in the treats was from China. The FDA has issued a warning about chicken treats made in China (which includes the chicken wrapped veggies and fruits that are so popular.)

I gave Hexe ONE teeny Waggin Train treat, and an hour later, she was vomiting. She vomited nonstop all day, all night, and into the morning the next day. She was horribly sick, so I rushed her to the vet. Turns out that another dog was there with the same problem…same brand of treats.

Hexe is doing better now, but it was scary. She’s still on meds and needs tests to make sure her kidneys are okay. And don’t think that if you’ve been feeding your pets these treats for months or years that they must be fine — apparently, the effects of whatever is in these treats can be cumulative, resulting in renal failure and other problems WAY too early in a pet’s life.

PLEASE heed the FDA warning and don’t feed treats imported from China. It’s scary stuff, and it’s real. My vet bill will attest to that. It’s way cheaper to throw out the treats than to pay vet bills.

Okay, so scary stuff aside, it’s been a good week, and I want to thank everyone who has bought Immortal Rider. Your support means so much — and it’s the reason I keep writing!

Lots of Great News!

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Wow…I can’t believe it’s November already! This year has flown by. I’m SO not ready for the holidays! Though I have to say that I’m looking forward to two things this Thanksgiving — one, the Klingon Christmas Carol play, which I’ll be appearing in for a guest role on the 27th, and the release of Immortal Rider on the 22nd!

Ooh, and here’s a neat thing — Immortal Rider is a Christmas story! No, really. Okay, maybe not exactly, but it does take place in December, and there’s mention of Christmas and candy canes.

So it’s a Christmas story. :grin:

Anyway, I’ve gotten a couple of awesome reviews for Immortal Rider already, and this one, from Publishers Weekly, had me giddy:

Ione’s second Lords of Deliverance paranormal (after Eternal Rider) provides a thrilling ride for readers. Limos, Satan’s betrothed and daughter of the biblical Lilith, will become a horseman of the apocalypse if, like her brother Reseph (now known as Pestilence), her seal is found and broken. At the engagement party for Limos’s brother Ares, Arik Wagner, a soldier for the U.S. army’s R-X paranormal unit, steals a kiss from Limos and is dragged down to hell, where he’s tortured until Limos helps rescue him. Their burgeoning relationship and attempts to end Pestilence’s apocalyptic threat are impeded by the lingering effects of Arik’s torture and personal demons, Limos’s shame over long-held secrets and lies, and the fight against the forces arrayed against humanity. A secondary plot involving Limos’s brother Thanatos adds more character torment while setting up the next installment. Ione balances all the angst with plenty of action, sexual tension, and dark humor.

Woot!

Also, Eternal Rider was nominated as one of the Goodreads Choice picks for best romance of the year! The best part of it is not only am I up there with some HUGELY talented authors, but I’m there because of the readers. It was YOUR reviews that got all of the books nominated, so thank you!!!!
