Soooo maybe it should say, “When a Detective meets a Dog Trainer You get a chance to win a FREE book.”
Or it could say, “When an Urban fiction romance writer meets another urban fiction wanna be writer who usually doesn’t like romance novels, but loves it 100% anyway despite the romance *takes breath*, You can win a FREE book!”
Do you get the point yet? Because I think I’m totally lost.
I do know that there’s going to be a giveaway at the bottom of this post, so you need to stick around! (Don’t make me beg, because I can get really annoying)
That’s what D’Elen McClain found out when she mentioned that not only does she write under two names, but she also writes Urban Fiction, with vampires and wolves, and the stuff half of my hard drives and thumb drives are made of. Of course I was in heaven, with a writer who will talk to me, and hold my hand, and yell at me softly to get my arse in gear. A writer who might be just as obsessed with dogs as I am, and also is in the whole Urban fiction world to boot! My annoyance skills might have kicked into high gear.
And then I got my little, editing cramped hands on her first novel, Fang Chronicles, Amy’s Story… and I got scared. I panicked. As I did with reading my friend Cole Gibsen’s first novel, Katana. I mean what if I hate the books? What if it’s just as painful as reading 50 Shades of Grey?! (not in the painful sexy way, but in the, “OhEmGee, what is the big friggen deal over this book because I see no reason to read one more page” way)
So I dove in anyways, because reading books is the biggest risk this lady takes lately.
Amy’s Story is the tale of a young, not so special reporter, who lives only for her work. In desperation to finally nail that big story that would gain her the attention she has worked so hard for, she takes some big risk, disguising herself as the corner merchant in high heels if you know what I mean. The problem is that the locals fall for it, and before she can save herself, she finds herself being saved by an extremely handsome, wealthy man… who isn’t exactly the tycoon portrayed on TV. In the blink of an eye, Amy finds herself submerged in the world of Vampires and Werewolves, romance and war… and some very important life questions.
The beginning of the book soared by too quickly for my own personal tastes, you could tell that D’elen had an awesome plot she was about to rope you into and couldn’t wait to get you there. But after she got me into that plot, I was stuck. I could not put down my dang Kindle, ask my husband who threatened that if I drop the dang thing into the tub that he would not be replacing it. For her first venture into Urban Fiction/Romance the writing was smooth, easy to read and easy to follow. The characters were well-developed and left me very attached to all of them. Maybe too attached. ;) It’s a book I could see myself reading again even if I had the plot all wrong to the next in the series, Emily’s Story, which sadly is NOT about me… (as always, we can pretend). And to boot, this anti-romance reader didn’t mind the romance aspect… which is always a plus.
You need this book.
Luckily for you I was able to
con, beg Miss D’Elen out of two electronic copies JUST FOR YOU! Well, that’s a lie, you can’t just have them, because that’s no fun at all. And because that would mean she’d have to fork over a hundred copies, and why the heck do you need two copies all to yourself!?! Greedy, greedy people!
You have to enter for your chance to win one of the two copies. Just leave a comment and you’re in for one chance. Come back tomorrow for D’Elen’s guest post, leave a comment and get a second entry. Easy peasy. Wanna
suck up get extra chances? Tweet about this post, share on Facebook, BlogHer and blog about it for extra entries! Just leave a comment for each separate action pleaseeeeee. Myspace or Cafemom about it and I’ll probably just make fun of you. I’m potty training a toddler, it’s my right to be snarky!
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for a very special guest post from D’Elen herself (aka Suzie Ivy for my BlogHer peeps)!
