First Friday News from the Crew

It's June! How is that even possible?

To celebrate the dawn of a new month (and summer at that!) I asked some of the GLIAS crew to share their good news!

Here's what's going on with:

Angi Morgan

I’ve had an exciting two months and you’ve all been there for the releases of my TEXAS FAMILY RECKONING series with Harlequin which helped get THE RENEGADE RANCHER to #25 on Publishers Weekly Mass Market list. I’m writing the third book in my next series called WEST TEXAS WATCHMEN: The Sheriff, The Cattleman & The Ranger. Those three release in Jan, Feb & March 2015.

I have a completely different project that I’m very excited about. 12 SHADES OF MIDNIGHT is Twelve paranormal authors... one extraordinary boxed set. Featuring ALL NEW novellas by bestselling authors. That’s right, I’m adding some paranormal twists to my suspense with a new series: BODYGUARDS IN HEELS. The first is called: HIT & RUN HALLIE.

One of the most exciting things that happened at the Romantic Times convention is when three friends (and my new friends) asked for my autograph…in their printed book that had my book covers. It was the most AWESOME feeling to be included.

COMPLIANCE, Book 2 in The Dust Chronicles is a finalist in the YA category of the National Excellence in Romance Fiction! 

Last October, COMPLIANCE won the 2013 Golden Leaf award, and I finally got my paws on the actual award! I couldn't go to the awards ceremony, so I asked a good friend to accept for me, if I won. I'm sure she did an awesome job of that... but she lives an hour away and has such a busy schedule, I didn't get the award until now.) Here's a picture.

Also, to celebrate the June release of GLORY, Book 3 in The Dust Chronicles, the first two books, DEVIANTS and COMPLIANCE are on sale at Amazon! (Canada and US)  You can pick them up for only $2! (And right now, GLORY is up for pre-order at only $4!)

Coming next week.... 
For the release of GLORY, I'll be having a fabulous giveaway, with books and.... A Kindle Paperwhite!!! 
Come back next week to enter.
