So close...

We're so close to being done with our work in progress, Secret Maneuvers! Which is a good thing since it's scheduled to go off to the ladies at C&D Editing on May 6th. Until then, let me share with you what I'll be trying to talk my other writing half (Melissa) into doing while we're having our celebratory drinks after the book is done in about a week.
Beware beloved brother-in-law Rick. I'm mailing Mel sharpies...

HEROES IN BOSTON!

Yesterday was a senseless tragedy. Innocent lives lost or injured, and our prayers are with them. For many of those terrified injured people, who were scared in the chaos and darkness surrounding them, came hope, help and light in the form of HEROES. First Responders, Paramedics, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, Nurses, Doctors, your everyday average human beings and many others behind the scenes such as Dispatchers stepped up to help those in need. Not for recognition or reward, but because it was either their job or they wanted to help those in need. We support our heroes in their many forms!
Boston's Explosive Ordinance Unit found two undetonated devices and dismantled them.
The man in the cowboy hat was an innocent bystander across the street handing out American flags in representation of our sodiers when the bomb went off in front of him. Here he is helping the First Responder staunch the blood flow for a victim who lost his legs.


So many heroes who arrived within seconds, and stayed for many hours to do what needed to be done.

Law enforcement officers helping Paramedics load victims into ambulances.

Thank you to the many heroes who will undoubtedly be working around the clock for many days to come! Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone in Boston!

NEW Professionally Edited Version of Big Bad Bite Available!


We're excited to announce that Big Bad Bite had a makeover! Inside and out! We have a sexy new cover featuring our favorite Wolf, Adam, AND Big Bad Bite was sent off and edited by the amazing girls at C&D Editing.

Some might wonder, "Has the story changed?"

The answer to that would be yes and no. No, because the story line is still the same. Yes, because it no longer has those pesky grammatical errors, info dumps were cut down, inconsistencies were caught, and best of all, a tiny scene was added! Overall, it's a better story, but still has a kick ass, snarky heroine Jenna, and the snarly, but lovable, Adam who wants her.

So, if you haven't picked up your copy of Big Bad Bite yet, then go get it today!

Thank You's & What's Next!

Hi everybody! Melissa and I would just like to take a minute and say thank you to all of the wonderful readers and reviewers out there who have shown us love and supported us!

Big Bad Bite has hit Amazon Best Sellers Lists in a number of categories, which is amazing to us. We're currently ranked as high as #3 in the Fantasy -> Paranormal category, #7 in the Romance -> Paranormal category and #9 in the Romance -> Fantasy & Futuristic category!

We can't express how much this means to us! To be honest we're still kinda pinching ourselves to see if it's all real. So while we're getting over the shock of it all, we're also hard at work on our next project, Secret Maneuvers. We have a blurb up on its page if you want to see what it's about! In the mean time, we've decided that we will not be announcing anymore dates (because we do not want to disappoint anyone if we're running a tad behind schedule), but we will put up a vague projected goal so you have an idea of the time frame that we are shooting for. The good news is that we will have a new and lengthy (unedited) excerpt of Secret Maneuvers in the next one to two weeks, so check back often to catch it's release!

Melissa and I have set up some crazy goals for ourselves this year, and if everything works out you will see these books published during 2013: Secret Maneuvers, Walk On The Striped Side and possibly The Frozen Star. In that order.

That's all for now! Lots of love to you all and we'll catch you laters!
