June is in full swing and here in the northeastern part of the United States we're in the middle of a heatwave. I've been writing the third book in the Sons of Navarus series, Blood Spirit, so it's been pretty steamy all the time here. :) The release date is scheduled for September, but I'll be posting excerpts from the book leading up to its release, so keep an eye out for Terek, Ilona, and all things Blood Spirit on my blog.
In the meantime, look for Blood Betrayed, Book #2 in the Sons of Navarus series, as one of the featured books at RomCon this month! Saint did an interview with Chris, who runs the erotic blog, Amorous Avenue. It's been a great first month for Blood Betrayed, and the reviews have been fantastic! If you haven't checked out out Saint and Solenne's story, look for it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and All Romance eBooks.
In addition, I've been keeping a secret for a while, but now I can let it out. A reworked Vampire Dreams, my first novella, will be released in July. Entitled Vampire Dreams Revamped, it's longer, the story is bigger and sexier, and Vasilije, along with two other Sons of Navarus, make cameos. Look for it at Amazon and Barnes and Noble next month, but for a sneak peak at the cover, visit my blog at http://gbisset.blogspot.com/2012/06/coming-soon-vampire-dreams-revamped.html
The artist behind the Vampire Dreams Revamped cover is the incredible Talina Perkins. A fellow author, graphic designer, and all around wonderful person, Talina made Vampire Dreams Revamped sexier than I could have imagined. She's also the designer of the Sons of Navarus covers and all my swag. Check out Talina's blog, Bookin' It where you can find book reviews and information about her own cookbook, Easy Meal Ideas For Moms-On-The-Go.
Speaking of the Sons, over at their Facebook page I'll be running a giveaway starting June 22 and running through June 30 now that the page has reached 200 likes!

I hope everyone has a terrific month, and be sure to stop by the blog for #WIP Wednesdays and #Paranormalromance Fridays, in addition to the giveaway hops I love to do. I'll be doing a special giveaway for my birthday during the Cocked and Loaded Giveaway Hop right around July 4, so check it out!
Thanks again for all your support for my books! It means the world to me. :)
May 2012I hope the month of May has been a great one so far for everyone. I'm busy getting ready to release the second book in the Sons of Navarus series, Blood Betrayed. The response to Blood Avenged has been so exciting, and I have so many people emailing and posting to me on Facebook about how much they want to read Saint's book. For an author, there's nothing better than knowing readers are waiting for your next book. I can't tell you how thrilled that makes me!
So what's the lowdown with this new hero and his heroine? Well, for starters, Saint is very different from Vasilije. If you loved Blood Avenged's hero, look for a darker, more brooding man in Saint. He's still very much an Alpha male, but he's a bit more romantic.
And Solenne is very much a strong woman. While all my heroines are strong in their own ways, Solenne is more upfront with her strength. She even gives Vasilije a piece of her mind on occasion! That's just like a redhead, though. They're fiery women. I know. I'm a natural redhead. :)
The story is set in France, for the most part, and in this second book, readers will get to meet the Archon villain who will be around for a while, Marc Verrater. While he's not a usual Archon in many ways, Verrater is definitely a bad man.
For all the info on Blood Betrayed and the other books, including the brand new covers of Books #3 and #4, Blood Spirit and Blood Prophecy, like the Sons of Navarus Facebook Page. This month the Sons will be hanging out there doing interviews, and I'll be doing giveaways there too. Plus, readers can find an exclusive excerpt from Blood Betrayed there.
To celebrate the release of Blood Betrayed, I'm giving away an ebook copy of the book BEFORE its release date on May 24 to one lucky winner who comments on the Giveaway Post at the Sons of Navarus Facebook Page. Look for that Giveaway Post on Friday, May 18. I'll choose one winner on Sunday, May 20.
And if you haven't read the first book in the Sons of Navarus series yet, Blood Avenged is on sale for $.99 until the end of May at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Just in time to catch up and be ready for Blood Betrayed!
Have a wonderful month!
Spring is here and what better way to celebrate it than a giveaway? I have three giveaways going on at the blog in April. The first one, the Hoppy Easter Blog Hop Giveaway, begins on April 6 and runs through April 8. I'll be giving away an Amazon giftcard and a swag pack from all my books, so be sure to stop by.
The second giveaway is the Hunky Hero Giveaway Hop hosted by the wonderful ladies over at Riverina Romantics. That one will run April 16-22 and will include some great prizes, so don't miss it!
The last giveaway is the Spring Fling Blog Hop and it's hosted by author Selena Blake and the blogs Bitten by Paranormal Romance and Reading Between the Wines, two great blogs. That hop will run April 23-27, and I'll be sure to have some goodies on hand since the second book in the Sons of Navarus series, Blood Betrayed, is due out just weeks after.
Blood Betrayed, the release date has been set...May 24! I'll be joined that day by a group of great bloggers who will help me announce the arrival of the next Sons of Navarus book. I'm excited to share Saint and Solenne's story with the world, so look for it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and All Romance eBooks that day. Click on the book's title to read the Blood Betrayed blurb and look for teasers from the book in the weeks to come!
But before that even happens, the first book in the series, Blood Avenged, goes on tour with Goddess Fish from April 23-May 4. The tour looks to be a great one, and I hope you'll check out the stops for interesting posts and giveaways. Click on the book's title for a smokin' hot excerpt and on the Goddess Fish name for the schedule for the tour.
