Want a free copy of Poisoned Web?

August 19, 2013


It’s been a while since I released anything new (sorry – I’m working it, though!! :D), so I decided to try a little experiment to get people excited for my next release, Poisoned Web. It’s the second book in the Deizian Empire series–sort of Stargate meets Ancient Rome–and starts off where the first book ends.

So, how can you get a free ebook copy? Leave a review for the first book in the series, Tangled Web. Then, email me using the contact form on my website with a link to where you left the review and let me know what format you’d like the ebook of Poisoned Web in (.mobi for Kindle or .epub for Nook, Apple, Kobo, or Sony). A few days before the actual release date, I’ll send you a copy of Poisoned Web.

Simple, right?

Well, I do have to state a couple of restrictions.

  1. It does help if you’ve actually bought and/or read Tangled Web when you write the review.
  2. As much as I love 5-star reviews, I want you to be honest.
  3. This offer ends September 30, 2013, OR once I reach 100 requests for a free copy of Poisoned Web, whichever comes first.

Want a chance to get a print copy? Then sign up for my newsletter. I’m always giving away autographed copies of my books to my subscribers. 🙂


A Soul For Vengeance is out now!!

May 13, 2013

Crista - book 3 - 200x300

Book 3 of the Soulbearer Trilogy

Nothing stirs up Chaos like Vengeance.

When Prince Kell returns to Ranello, he finds his homeland in ashes. The invaders from Thallus destroyed everything he held dear, leaving him heir to a throne he can’t claim. The thirst for vengeance consumes him and drives him right into the arms of the most unlikely of rebel leaders.

Zara has fought for months to keep the hopes of the Ranellian people alive. Finding Kell is just the thing their dying rebellion needs. But as she tries to soothe Kell’s bitterness and turn him into the leader he’s meant to be, she finds herself desiring the one man she believes she’ll never have. A man whose heart was broken by a yellow-haired witch named Arden Soulbearer.

Available in ebook at B&N, Amazon, All Romance EbooksKobo and Apple!

Available in print at Amazon, B&N, Book Depository, Powells, and IndieBound!

Important Information About A Soul For Trouble

November 29, 2012

I’ve been invited to be part of a special promotion for Indie authors, but it would require me to enroll one of my books into KDP Select. I’ve chosen to enroll A Soul For Trouble for this promotion. This means that title would not be available AS AN E-BOOK anywhere else but Amazon from December 8th until March 8th. It will still be available IN PRINT at a variety of places, however.
To make it up to all the folks who have a Nook or a Kobo reader and haven’t gotten it yet, I’ve bundled it with A Soul For Chaos for the bargain price of $3.99. This will also only be available UNTIL DECEMBER 7TH at Barnes and Noble and Kobo.

I’m very sorry I’ll have to limit the availability of one of my books, and I hope to make it up to you in the future by offering more special incentives like this. If you’re dying to have a copy of A Soul For Trouble for your non-Kindle device during that period, please email me, and we can work something out.
