Shadow Rising print release

 

I’m so excited to share with you that today is the print release for Shadow Rising, book 2 in my spicy Shadow Slayers urban fantasy series! Although I’m a big reader of e-books, I have to admit that as an author, it’s pretty cool to hold Shadow Rising in my hands and flip through the pages.

In celebration of the print release, I’m going to give away a signed trade paper edition of both book 1, Slayer’s Kiss, and book 2, Shadow Rising! Simply enter the Rafflecopter giveaway below.

I’d like to say a special thank you to my Cassi’s Crew members! You guys have made the release of this series so much fun!

Big Hugs,

Cassi

Hi, friends!  Dark Flight comes out on Tuesday and I’m so excited that the reviews are just starting to come in. This review  from Sandy at The Reading Cafe really made my day! I’ll include a link to the whole review, but be forewarned–it contains spoilers if you haven’t read books one and two. So just in case you don’t want to be spoiled, I’ll put just a snippet below. Happy reading!!

 

The Reading Cafe

 

“DARK FLIGHT is a fascinating and amazingly detailed urban fantasy storyline that furthers the history and background of the Demaire Fallen Angels and their lives. Kara is a heroine who loves with her heart and her soul; fights for what she believes; and is willing to push the limits of her emotions and power to save the people (and Fallen Angels) that she loves. Cassi has woven a story of love and loss; pain and sorrow; revenge and triumph. I have enjoyed the Shadow Slayers series from book one and I am in total agreement with Cassi’s decision about with whom Kara will share her life and her love.” -The Reading Cafe

Hello, my friends!

I wanted to give you an update on the Slayer’s Kiss freebie promotion to let you know that it’s been going great!!! Matter of fact, let’s do this in pictures… On Amazon Kindle’s Free list, Slayer’s Kiss got up to: 

 

Which is totally thrilling for this author! And in turn, those downloads pushed book 2, Shadow Rising, up the paid Kindle charts to number:

 

Which is pretty amazing as well. And how did Slayer’s Kiss do at Samhain? Yep, number one for almost two weeks!!! Whose idea was this freebie thing, anyway? Come here and let me hug you!

But the freebie period isn’t over yet! And today, I’d like to thank everyone who listed Slayer’s Kiss on their blogs to let readers know about the free e-book! If you want to visit any of these awesome sites, I’ll include the links below.

By far, the coolest thing about this whole experience, though, has been getting to know new readers and introducing them to the Shadow Slayers world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the Twitter retweets, Facebook  postings, blog stops, and reviews! You guys are the best!

Big hugs,

Cassi

Okay, so the date is a little sketchy, I know, but on April 1st—otherwise known as April Fool’s Day—Slayer’s Kiss is going on sale for FREE at all major book retailers, and the sale will extend until April 15th! This is huge news for The Shadow Slayer series!

Click on the links below to download your FREE e-book!

Amazon.com  ~  Barnes & Noble  ~  Sony  ~  Samhain  ~  Apple

Why would my publisher choose to do this? Because they are enthusiastic about the May 21st release of book 3 in the series, Dark Flight, and they want to introduce the Shadow Slayers spicy urban fantasy series to as many new readers as possible!

So what can you do to help make this promotion a success, you ask? (And thank you for asking, by the way!)  Simply download a copy of Slayer’s Kiss and send the link to a friend who loves a spicy read—and let’s see if we can move Slayer’s Kiss up the free charts so new readers can be introduced to my fun, sexy, action-packed world!

Also, I’m putting up a new “Blog Tour” page so you can keep up-to-date on where I’ll be visiting in April and May. Please stop by and say “hi” and enter for a chance to win a copy of Dark Flight!

Big hugs, my friends! Thank you for all your support! And come April 1st, don’t forget to download your free copy of Slayer’s Kiss!!

 

Me and Slayer’s Kiss at the 2013 RWA California Dreamin’ Writers Conference.

.

It’s been forever since I posted, and I thought a few of you might have been wondering where in the heck Cassi has gone… or why she’s suddenly speaking of herself in third person. (You were, weren’t you?) So let me give you the scoop on what I’ve been up to…

In December, The Silverwing’s Sorceress came out, and at the same time I was busy editing Dark Flight, which releases in May. When the kids are out of school (I have four teens, mind you), I end up spending extra time with them and the writing schedule slows for important events, such as tea parties, baking, and sprinkler repair ( yes, those are trash bags taped to my legs)…

Since the kids have been back in school, I’ve been back at the keyboard working on several new projects. If you look at the “Works In Progress” tab under “Books,” you’ll see that I was already working on a full-length contemporary romance and a full-length paranormal romance—and then this really cool idea hit me. So I took a short break from those to write a  25k word novella entitled If You Need Me. ♥♥♥ I’m loving this ultra-spicy novella. ♥♥♥  And I hope to tell you more about it soon!

Next, I’ll be heading to the “California Dreamin'” SoCal Writer’s Conference in Santa Ana, where I’ll be participating in the multi-author book-signing—which is open to the public! So if you want a signed print copy of Slayer’s Kiss, you know where to find me. For those attending the conference, Melissa Cutler and I will also be giving a workshop entitled “The Publishing Pact – Making that First Sale & Taking Your Writing Buddies with You.”  I hope to see you there!

Oh—and don’t forget, I’m giving away three print copies of Slayer’s Kiss on Goodreads and the contest ends tomorrow! So, it’s not too late to enter to win your copy!

Warm Regards,

Today I unleash Abbey and Jaxon upon the world!!! Book 2.5, The Silverwing’s Sorceress, is a stand-alone, 110 page paranormal romance novella. I had so much fun writing this book, and seeing as I was originally writing an urban fantasy series, I was thrilled that my publisher made room in the Shadow Slayers universe for something a little different.

If you’ve read the first two books, Slayer’s Kiss and Shadow Rising, then you probably already love Abbey and Jaxon as much as I do. But if you haven’t read them—no problem! You’ll be able to navigate book 2.5 just fine.  :)

Do you want to be entered to win one free digital copy of the book of your choice: Slayer’s Kiss, Shadow Rising, or The Silverwing’s Sorceress? Go ahead! Enter below and good luck! And if you don’t win this time, don’t give up! In celebration of the release of The Silverwing’s Sorceress, I’ll be giving away free e-books all week long!

Hugs! Cassi
