I'm Writing Things! And Releasing Them!

I get a lot of fun emails and questions from readers. I love them all, and they make me excited to write, so please, keep sending them! The question I'm asked the most though, is when I'll have more books coming out. I've been horrible at keeping you guys updated...mostly because seeing the impending deadlines in writing instead of in my head makes me want to crawl under my desk, mainline chocolate, and watch marathons of Vikings and Sons of Anarchy. 


 And really, who wouldn't want to spend some time with this Viking?


Or this Son of Anarachy?

*sigh*

 But, I LOVE that you're excited for my books, and because I LOVE you, and want you to know what's up, I'm giving you a list...in writing.

So, here's what I'm working on now...

New Adult, Book 1 of a series 
(I LOVE this hero! LOVE him! And my heroine is awesome too! This book is full of SEXY!!!)
New Adult Serial Series with Episodes 
(So much college fun!)
Devil Series, Short Story #1 
(Kate, Sophie, and Ella Shenanigans!)
Devil Series, Book 2 
(Hawke... I think that's all I need to say.)
Devil Series, Short Story #2 
(More Shenanigans!)

And here are the tentative release dates for books I have coming out this year...

Spring 2014-Devil Series Short Story #1
Spring 2014-New Adult Series, Book 1 (Title and Cover Coming Soon!)
Spring 2014-New Adult Serial, Episodes 1 and 2 (Titles Coming Soon!)
Summer 2014-Devil Series, Book 2 (Title and Cover Coming Soon!)
Summer 2014-New Adult Serial, Episodes 3-4
Fall 2014-Devil Series Short Story #2
Fall 2014-New Adult Series, Book 2 
Fall 2014-New Adult Serial, Episodes 5-6 

This list will probably change (and maybe even be added to) depending on how fast I write and how many times I watch the new season of Vikings. And yes, the History Channel knows about my Vikings obsession. The show started following me on Twitter. I giggled like a fangirl when they did.


 Now you know the writing and release plan! 

Also, if you want to be kept even more informed, and be part of special giveaways, sneak peeks, etc. sign up for my newsletter! I'll only email you once a month, and won't spam you, I promise! I'm doing the newsletter because Facebook changed their post view settings, and only 5-10% of you are actually seeing my posts. So, a newsletter is a better way for me to keep you all informed, and give you cool stuff for being on the newsletter list!


Thanks again for reading my books! I love you all!!! 
xoxo

Title: Pretty Little Dreams (Pretty Little Lies, #2) Author: Jennifer Miller Release Date: January 13, 2014 Genre: Contemporary Romance

SYNOPSIS:
There is a place in all of us where our deepest secrets lie in wait for their moment to surface, and surface they will.
After living through a real live nightmare, Olivia wants nothing but to forget. Forget and move on. But how do you forget something that has stained your soul and forces you to lie to your loved ones? Even if your intentions are to spare them the horrors of the truth?
Luke knows Olivia is not as recovered as she would have him believe. He can see the pain she tries to keep hidden behind her eyes, and knows she has not told him everything. But how do you save someone who won’t let you in? Where shame holds Olivia captive, Luke suffers through the guilt of not protecting the one person he loves more than anything.
Can two people who have suffered so dearly find a way to come together or will they risk the dreams they have placed in each other’s hearts? Can love find a way where forgiveness cannot?

EXCERPT:
“HELP! I’VE BEEN KIDNAPPED. SOMEONE HEL…”
Suddenly, I am grabbed from behind and dragged into the bedroom and thrown on the bed like a rag doll. I try to roll onto my back but instead a weight settles on my back, and my face gets shoved into the mattress.
“Shut the fuck up, bitch.”
The voice is not Deacon’s. I freeze as shock runs through my body from head to toe, paralyzing me in fear.
“Lover boy isn’t here to save you. It might be worth facing his anger to shut you up permanently.”
I don’t speak. I’m afraid to move. Who is this man? He moves off me so he can roughly flip me over. I stare up into his hard eyes. He’s not an attractive man. Light hair, pointy nose, and lips so thin they’re hardly there at all. He has a scar that runs from the tip of his eyebrow to the middle of his cheek. “Leave me alone.”
“I don’t think I will… what does he call you? Princess? I don’t think I will, princess.” He says mockingly. Then, to my horror he runs his hand down the front of my body, squeezing my breasts painfully and then gripping my hip. His breathing starts quickening.
“No, please don’t touch me.”
“That’s right, beg, you bitch. Next time you will think twice about breaking the rules and trying to yell for help.”
Oh God. He’s going to hurt me, or worse. I do the only thing I can. I start struggling. I kick my legs like a three-year-old having a tantrum. I throw my head back and forth and get one of my hands loose and scrape my nails down the front of his face. “Let go of me!” I scream.

Author Jennifer Miller was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, but now calls Arizona home. Jennifer’s love of reading began when she was a small child, and only continued to grow as she entered adulthood. Ever since winning a writing contest at the young age of nine, when she wrote a book about a girl with a pet unicorn, she’s dreamed of writing a book of her own.
Quickly learning that dreams don’t just fall into your lap, she knew she had to chase them herself and not be afraid to dream a little bigger. Most importantly, she is a wife and mother, and is very lucky to have a family that loves and supports her in all things. She also has an unhealthy addiction to handbags and chocolate covered strawberries, neither of which she cares to change.

Emblem of Eternity Series Highlight!



Good Choice Reading is highlighting my Emblem of Eternity series!



Witch Fall by Amber Argyle!

Hey guys, it's Witch Fall's release day. Here's some coding if you wouldn't mind pasting it onto your blogs:

All things fall.

Even Witches.

Supreme in their dominion over seasons, storms, and sea, the Witches have forgotten the unmatched destructiveness of mankind. And among the weapons men seek are the magical songs of the Witches.

Lilette is one of the few who see the decadence and decay weakening the Witches. As an outsider amid her own kind, can she help them survive the coming war?

 ~ Goodreads ~ Amazon ~ B&N ~ 

 ~ About the author ~ 


Amber Argyle is the author of Witch Song and Fairy Queen trilogies. She grew up with three brothers on a cattle ranch in the Rocky Mountains. She spent hours riding horses, roaming the mountains, and playing in her family’s creepy barn. This environment fueled her imagination for writing high fantasy. She has worked as a short order cook, janitor, and staff member in a mental institution. All of which has given her great insight into the human condition and has made for some unique characters. She received her bachelor’s degree in English and Physical Education from Utah State University. She currently resides in Utah with her husband and three small children.

~ Excerpt ~ 

Han looked at her, his eyes as dark and depthless as the deepest part of the ocean. His gaze shifted to her mouth and she could have sworn she felt the pressure of his gaze on her lips. She moved forward a fraction, until there was nothing between them but sunlight. Then there was nothing between them at all. His lips were on hers, not claiming, not possessing, simply wanting. Needing.

Lilette had never known how full of need he was. How dark and empty the spaces in his soul must be. He drank her in like she was light and hope and he’d been a starving man all his life.

For Lilette, it was like his touch let her shine. Like she’d been shattered into a thousand specks of light and he brought her together—made her whole.

With a shudder that shook to his core, Han pulled away from her. He rested his forehead against hers, his breath ragged and his lips red. “Lilette.”

She closed her eyes as he said her name. Said it like he was cupping a bird in his hands and he’d set it free. She inhaled the breath that had carried her name. “Han.”

“It’s like no matter how hard I try, you’re all I can see.”

She held her hands together to keep them from trembling and betraying her. “Where does that leave us?”

“I don’t know.” Han closed his eyes and breathed her in. “You’re leaving for Haven. I’m going to stay here as an ambassador for Harshen.”

She nodded. “I’m glad.” She trusted no one else with this.
Han hesitated, and then kissed her briefly. “Be well, little dragon.” He turned and walked away.

Lilette watching him, waiting for him to move out of sight before she allowed her legs to go soft. Let herself sink into the loam. She didn’t cry. She just waited for the aching to fade enough to get to her feet and keep moving.

Soul of Flame Annoucement, by Rebecca Ethington!

Author Rebecca Ethington has some big news to share about her Imdalind series! Check out the video below where Rebecca Ethington shares a special message. :)





About Soul of Flame...



Book Four in the Imdalind Series, expected release December 2013

The Time for the final battle has come.

Edmund's armies have surrounded the Rioseco Abbey, trapping the few survivors inside. The sight that Ilyan was given a thousand years ago is about to come to pass.

If only Joclyn was able to fight.

Joclyn is tormented by the hallucinations that Cail’s mind has left her with, her magic an uncontrollable torrent that even Ilyan cannot control. Her moments of lucidity are broken by fears of dripping pipes and bleeding walls, and a desire to kill Ryland that she is having trouble trying to ignore.

The sight has shown her power, shown her success, but it has also shown her death – The end of her life something she is not quite willing to give up on yet.

Even past her death, the sight has shown her love, and that love may be the only key to her sanity, to her strength, and to Edmund's death.

That love may stand in her way, and a single choice may tip the scales and secure their future, or destroy their fate.


Release Date: February 17th 2014


SMALL TEASER

"“You deserve to die!”

The tanned skin of his face slowly faded to white before the red of his lips painted blue. He clawed at his neck as an invisible force squeezed the life out of him. I only smiled as I watched him fight it, knowing it was pointless, knowing I wouldn’t let him get away.

Rose Garcia is a lawyer turned writer who's always been fascinated by science fiction and fantasy. From a very young age, she often had her nose buried in books about other-worlds, fantastical creatures, and life and death situations. More recently she's been intrigued by a blend of science fiction and reality, and the idea that some supernatural events are, indeed, very real. Fueled by her imagination, she created The Transhuman Chronicles--a series of books about people who have overcome human limitations.

Rose lives in Houston with her husband and two kids. You can visit Rose at www.rosegarciabooks.com
