The Shadow Slayers

Happy November, everyone! Wow, I can’t believe Shadow Rising has only been out for five weeks! I still come across people who would like to read it, but wonder if they should read book 1, Slayer’s Kiss, first. The answer is yes!

But I have super good news for you: if you’ve purchased Shadow Rising and you haven’t read Slayer’s Kiss, let me know! I have free digital copies left of Slayer’s Kiss and I’d love to give you one! So for the first twenty people who contact me and show me they’ve purchased Shadow Rising (cut and paste, perhaps?), I’ll send you a digital copy of Slayer’s Kiss in the format you prefer for your e-reader!

Sound good?  Simply e-mail me at cassicarver 1 @ gmail.com and claim your free book!

Hugs,

Cassi

Free books make me happy!!!

I almost forgot to tell you guys about the cool thing that happened at RWA12 last week…

Well, let’s start the tale with the fact that Shadow Rising, book 2 in my spicy urban fantasy series with Samhain is coming out next month!!! Well, I’m excited about this fact, so I scraped together my nickels and dimes and came up with the money to put a little black and white ad in September’s issue of RT magazine.

I was so pleased when I opened the magazine and saw my ad! (September’s issue arrives to most people in the first week of August, but they had it at the conference a week early!!)

This is what my little ad baby looked like:

 

Isn’t it precious?? *cuddle*

So when my friend Melissa Cutler asked if I’d seen my book in RT, I proudly answered yes and opened the magazine to the page that sported my ad. But then she said something like, “No, not that one–the other one.”

Gasp. Was she crazy? What was she talking about? So I frantically flipped through until I stumbled upon this:

 

 

 

EEeeeppp!!!!!! It was like my ad, only what my ad would have turned out like if it had been raised in a better home and Harvard educated. With celebrity parents. The picture doesn’t do it justice. It’s bright and shiny. Sparkly, even. I was gushing all over the place, ready to have Samhain’s little book babies right then and there.

So…there’s really no moral to this story other than I wanted to gush over my book baby a little. Isn’t she so cute?

And if you’d like to see the bright, shiny version, pick up a copy of this month’s RT magazine. 😀

Hugs, Cassi

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you’re having an awesome start to your week! I’m going to be over at Castles and Guns today, kicking off my new every-other Monday spot by talking about writing and my early book influences. I even included a new excerpt from Slayer’s Kiss! Please stop by and say hi!

http://www.castlesandguns.com/2012/01/look-out-monsters-here-i-come.html

Wow! My debut novel, Slayer’s Kiss, is coming out one month from today, and I can hardly believe it!

If you’ve ever written a book, you know it’s not generally a short process. In fact, some have likened it to a pregnancy. And when you add on editing your rough draft, fine-tuning over and over, querying, finding a home for the book, editing again, and all the stuff that goes into getting a book ready for delivery—the day you finally get to share your book baby with others is all the more thrilling!

Pre-release reviews for Slayer’s Kiss have started coming in via e-mail, and they are so inspiring! The other day on Goodreads, a reviewer said, “WOW! Can’t wait to tell you about this book. You’re gonna be looking high and low for the next installment in this series when it debuts.”

I was so excited and so honored, I swear I got teary-eyed. I know not all reviews will be positive because people have such different tastes, and that’s okay, but the greatest part about hearing her words was that they were coming from someone who wanted to read my book just for the sheer pleasure of it.

At the end of the day, that’s why I’m writing. I want readers to be able to put aside their worries and stress for just a little while and enter into a world that’s exciting, suspenseful, and sexy! Knowing there are readers out there who are cooing over my creation makes the long gestation worth it. 😉
