Carey says: I’m triple delighted today because the wonderful incredible fantabulous Cindy Gerard is here today to answer questions and comments… and...she’s going to tell us about a two-for-one rerelease of her classic early titles (I’ve never read them and now I get to!! ) and …we get to see the cover for her upcoming release- Killing Time- the first in her new series, ONE EYED JACKS! Let the fun begin!
Cindy says: First things first, a big thank you to Carey and everyone at Kiss and Thrill for inviting me back to blog with them again today. I’m so thrilled, I could kiss them. Okay. Bad pun (but I love a pun) and you get the gist of what I’m sayin’, right?
Second, thanks to all of you who support all of us writers. I don’t think that gets said often enough. It’s not that we don’t think it. We do. We know that if not for our loyal readers who go out and spend their hard earned money on our books that we would be out of a job – and a job is a precious thing. Especially a job that you love.
Third – just for the record. I love my job. :o) I love writing. I love the business of writing. I love the fans. I love my author friends. My editorial team. My agent and her staff and I LOVE seeing my work in print.
And finally – fourth – I love seeing new life breathed into old books and finding them on the shelves again or available as e-books. So many of my fabo authors buddies have been having fun reissuing much of their backlist. Well, I’m super excited to let you all know that I’ve joined the ranks. Two of my classic romances – INTO THE NIGHT and MAN AROUND THE HOUSE are now available in e-book format in one volume titled: WORTH DYING FOR.
It’s a bogo!! Buy one, get the other one free. Only thing better is a bogo on shoes. LOL!
Here are the blurbs for each book.
INTO THE NIGHT (National Reader’s Choice winner)
….It began as a gimmick to promote their new radio show, but the spirited sparring between Jessie Fox and Tony Falcone soon has listeners demanding to know more about their steamy romance – and sets loose a crazed stalker. Jessie swears that the fire burning in Tony’s eyes can’t be real—until he sets a seductive trap she can’t escape. Can Tony persuade Jess he’s never letting her go?
MAN AROUND THE HOUSE (Rita Finalist)
….Answering his neighbor’s cry for help, Matthew Spencer finds himself rescuing a sassy blue-eyed temptress. Katie McDonald is a walking disaster who falls off ladders into his arms and awakens his hunger with the speed of a summer storm, and her infectious spirit has him rediscovering the joy in life.
Matthew makes her feel too much, want more than she can have, and dare to dream of being loved, but Katie knows she’s all wrong for a man with a child. Despite the passion between them, Matthew needs someone nice and normal, not wild and reckless – and Katie’s passion for her work has placed her in grave danger. And once Matthew learns her deeply buried sorrow, can he love her for all time?…
As I’ve stated in other blog posts, do NOT expect these to be the high octane, high risk, adrenaline rushes of my Body Guard or Black Ops, Inc. books. They are absolutely not. I like to call them ‘suspense lite’ ) with a lot of fun and a hot love story at the heart of each book. I really hope you’ll enjoy them to. You can buy them here: B&N.com or here: Amazon.com
Speaking of high octane, high risk, adrenaline rushes … check out the cover of KILLING TIME, book one of my NEW series One-Eyed Jacks (release date 1-19-13). Swwwweeeeettttt! And for your reading pleasure, here’s a link to an excerpt from KILLING TIME. Excerpt.
Mike – Primetime – Brown showed up in With No Remorse and again in Last Man Standing and basically demanded he get his own story. And wow. What a story he has to tell :o)
Okay – Back to WORTH DYING FOR. I love that e-book technology is making it possible for me as a writer and a reader to have access to out of print titles that we would otherwise not be able to find. I like it so much, in fact that I’m giving away 2 e-book copies of WORTH DYING to someone who comments today by answering one of two questions: 1) How do you feel about reissues in general? 2) Is Mike Brown HOT or what???
Carey says: Cindy thanks so much for being here! And thanks for the giveaway! Commenters, I’ll be posting the Cindy Gerard winners along with the DP Lyle winner on Monday, so stayed tuned.
