Name a Character & Win - Megg Jensen

"Yep, it's that time again! I'm almost done with The Sundering, but I have one character who still doesn't have a name. This is becoming a bad habit for me, but a good thing for you. Why?
Because it means prizes! ;)

The Character
A young girl, around the age of 8. She's blonde and sweet, but doesn't speak. She's a bit of mystery.


Comment below with your picks for the character's name. Only three (3) suggestions per person!

If you don't have a registered Blogger account, please leave a way for me to contact you!!!!

Remember - I write epic fantasy. A name like Jane isn't likely to make the cut. Jayne, however, might.

What You Win:

(1) My undying thanks in the form of a mention in the acknowledgements in The Sundering.

(2) Ten bookmarks of The Swarm Trilogy to do with as you please.
(3) An eARC of The Sundering...to be delivered sometime before September 25th. Most likely, much earlier.

I will choose the name I like best by August 3rd and notify the winner!

Thanks and GOOD LUCK!!!!"

This is an awesome contest, I suggest you all enter!!

While it Lasts Sneak Peek #4

Excerpt from WHILE IT LASTS by Abbi Glines
Release date set for July 31, 2012

             Leaning against the tree, I took another swig of water and wrapped the ice towel around my neck. The breeze was nicer when the scorching sun wasn’t bearing down on you.
            “What did you do to Becca Lynn?”
            Snapping my head up from its resting place against the tree I took in the first real sight of Eva I’d had since the night at the lake. Her long brown hair was pulled back in a ponytail. She was wearing a short white cotton sundress and a pair of flip flops. She was also trying real hard to look stern. She wasn’t upset with me. She was just being nosey. I liked that.
            “Good morning to you too Eva,” I replied unable to keep from smiling.
            She tilted her head to one side and continued to force that frown. I’d seen the real thing. This was not the real “angry Eva” face. “Becca Lynn hasn’t come around in two days. That isn’t normal. Especially since she was so hot after you. So, what did you do to her?”
           “I believe it’s what I didn’t do to her.” I took a slow swig of my water but I didn’t take my eyes off her as she let me words sink in.
           Shifting her feet she put her hands on her hips. “What does that mean?”
           “It means exactly what it sounds like. I didn’t do her. I’m guessing that’s the problem.”
           Eva’s fake scowl disappeared and she was frowning. “But I saw you both naked at the…” she trailed off and her eyes grew wider. Two pink splotches covered her cheeks. Eva Brooks had come back to the lake the other night. And she’d seen me naked. Yeah, I was going to have to spend a lot of fucking time in the shower now. The image of her sneaking around to see me naked was just hot.
          “Did Eva Brooks come back to the lake and get her eyes full?” I teased.

Bloody Little Secrets Sequel: Cover and Title Reveal!!!

Gorgeous cover :)

More info at Karly Kirkpatrick's Blog!

Wanna read an ARC copy of DESERT RICE & be entered into a drawing too? HECK YEAH! - Angel Scott


I've written a zombie western book, you may have heard of it (or not--but you have now...hee,hee,hee), WANTED: Dead or Undead, and so far so good. Readers seem to enjoy the genre mashup and positive reviews have been rolling in (YES!). I took a gamble and wrote a story that was so different from anything I've ever written before and I'm so glad I did. It was one of the funnest stories I've ever written (book two in the series is proving mighty fun too).

But my heart really belongs to my contemporary pieces. There's no zombies or vampires or paranormal anything, just stories about real characters (well, as real as a fictional character can get) dealing with real types of life issues. The emotional ups and downs Desert Rice put me through will make this book one of my favorites--I love these characters. My hope is that readers will too.

The only way for me to know that is to put it out there in the world and see what kind of response it receives. So, this is what I propose... I'd like to give you (yes you) an advanced copy in the ebook format of your choosing. The official release date is August 15th, and I'd like to get some reviews and feedback up on sites likes Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble around that time. Just leave a comment below and let me know which ebook format you would prefer (fill out the comment form with your email--no one will see that but me). That would give you about 3 1/2 weeks to read the book before the GIVEAWAY! (Yippe! A Giveaway!).

While It Lasts Sneak Peek #3

 “You didn’t tell me you had company, Eva,” Becca Lynn cooed twirling one of her long blonde locks around her finger while batting her eyelashes in Cage’s direction. Good lord she was ridiculous.
          “I don’t have company Becca,” I snapped hoping to get her attention but it didn’t work. “This is Daddy’s summer help. He’s working with our cows. Because he got a DUI and he is serving time.” Maybe that would wake her up out of this worshipful gaze she had on him. But it didn’t.
          “Oh, so you’ll be here all summer?” she asked still smiling up at Cage like he was a freaking rock star.
          “Looks that way,” he replied in an amused tone. Great even the man whore beside me thought she was making a fool of herself.
          “Well, when you’re not working and get bored I could keep you company—“
          “Becca Lynn,” I raised my voice to stop her from offering to come warm his damn bed in the barn.
          Finally, her eyes shifted off Cage to meet my gaze. The twinkle in her eye told me she knew exactly how it sounded and she didn’t care not one bit.
         “Thank you. I’m sure that I’ll be needing someone to show me what to do for entertainment when the work-day's through. I can’t think of anyone else I’d rather have take me around and enlighten me to the things to do out here in the country.” The sexy drawl thing he had going on just pissed me off. It also gave me chill bumps and made my heart race. 
         Becca Lynn’s eyes swung back over to eat Cage alive. “That sounds like a really good plan,” she closed the distance between them and held out her perfectly manicured hand. Hot pink nails that I was sure matched her toenails, wiggled in his direction invitingly. Becca was as high maintenance as they came around here. “I’m Becca Lynn Blevins.”
         Cage closed the small amount of space Becca had left between them and slipped his hand into hers. Did Becca just shiver? “Cage York and it’s a pleasure, Becca.”
        “Oh,” she breathed. Her head tilted back as she drank him in. I swear, if he kissed her in my kitchen I was going to throw my cobbler batter at him.
         “I got to get back to work. I’ll be looking for you to come entertain me real soon, Becca Lynn.” Cage said in a low whisper then stepped around her and headed out the door without a backward glance.

Ceaseless (Existence #3) Blurb

He defied Heaven to keep her, he defeated evil to save her, but if her soul wants another... will he be able to let her go?

Can he make her fall in love with him… again?

When Pagan Moore proved worthy of Death’s devotion, he was given the gift of getting to keep her.

But Dank was never promised that Pagan would keep him.

When a soul is created, so is its mate. In every lifetime those souls find each other. They complete the other’s destiny. It’s time for Pagan’s soul to choose if she truly wants an eternity at Death’s side or if she wants the mate created just for her.

Dank didn’t think he had to worry about her choice. He knew where her heart belonged. Until he realized that every kiss, every touch, every moment of their time together would be washed from her memories. He would have to win her heart all over again and prove to her soul that he was where she belonged.

If only her soul’s mate wasn’t right there standing in his way.

WHILE IT LASTS- sneak peek #2

Damn. Maybe I should come out to the country more often. I didn’t realize they grew girls like this out here.
  “Eva, you aren’t ready yet? I thought we were gonna make the six-thirty show,” Jeremy said from behind me. Ah, hell no. Surely not. This goddess was with that guy? I brought my eyes back up to her face to find her blue eyes staring directly at me. They really were the bluest fucking eyes I’d ever seen.
   “Who are you?” the icy tone in her voice took me by surprise. 
   “Down, girl. Play nice, Eva. This is the guy your daddy has helping him this summer.” Her eyes flashed something that looked like, disgust? Really? I’d seen that look in a girl’s eyes before but never directed at me. Interesting.
      “You’re the drunk,” she stated. It wasn’t a question. So I didn’t reply. Instead, I flashed her the sexiest smile I had and took a step toward her.
      “I got a lot of names, baby,” I finally responded.
      Her eyebrows arched and she straightened her stance before nailing me with the coldest glare I’d ever been witness to. What was this chick’s deal? 
    “I'm sure you do. Let me guess, STD, loser, jackass, and drunk- just to name a few,” she clipped stepping out of the door and slamming it behind her. Her gaze shifted to Jeremy, who was chuckling behind me.

My hands are pretty full with this trilogy, so I'll only check in on Twitter and Facebook about once a day. Have a great month!

LUCID’s official summary!

Once Nara combines her prophetic ability with Ethan’s power to outsmart Fate at his own deadly cat-and-mouse game, she’s more determined than ever to help Ethan learn the meaning behind the raven sword tattoo that suddenly appeared on his back after their confrontation with Fate.
During her quest to uncover the tattoo’s secrets, Nara enlists the help of some new friends and discovers her own surprising connection to Ethan.

While Nara digs deeper into the mystery, her desire for answers leads her down a dangerous path full of powerful and ruthless enemies. Swept into an age-old battle, Nara quickly learns that keeping one’s enemies close can be a necessary evil, making an intangible enemy she can control far more preferable to the human enemies she can’t.

Cloud Prophet Trilogy by Megg Jensen New Covers

I'm the girl who gets bored and re-arranges the furniture. Or paints a room that doesn't need painting. Or organizes my closet just because.

But please don't think I took getting new covers for the Cloud Prophet Trilogy lightly. I didn't. I've been agonizing over this for weeks now, wondering what direction to go with them - or wondering if I should just leave them alone.

My problem is that while I can create entire worlds in my head, I'm terrible, awful, horrible at thinking up covers on my own. I can look at one that's already made and say, "Oooooh, pretty," but ask me to come up with a concept and my mouth will drop open. Drool will leak out. My eyes will go blank. It's not pleasant.

When I saw my friend RaShelle Workman's beautiful covers, I knew I needed to contact her artist - particularly when RaShelle told me the artist would hold my hand through the process. All I needed to do was tell him about the books and he would come up with the concept all on his own.

Enter Steven Novak, illustrator extraordinaire. He was everything RaShelle said he would be - and more. Within 48 hours, I had brand new covers for the entire trilogy and the trilogy combo edition. You can't imagine how excited I am.

Now I know there are people out there who love the original covers. I love them too. I still do! I just felt it was time for a change. I like change - I'm not afraid of it. For now, Robin Ludwig's designs will still grace my paperbacks.

Without further ado, here are the new ebook covers. I hope you love them as much as I do!!!!

First teaser from While It Lasts by Abbi Glines

My phone started ringing in my pocket and I pulled it out to see Low’s name lighting up the screen.
  “Hey baby,” I replied backing up and sinking down onto the bed. Surprisingly the mattress wasn’t bad.
            “So how is everything? Are they nice?” Just hearing Low’s voice made me feel better. Not so alone.
            “I’ve only met the guy’s daughter and the next door neighbor.”
            “Oh, so there’s a farmer’s daughter?” the teasing tone in Low’s voice made me chuckle. Yeah, there was a farmer’s daughter alright but it wasn’t what Low was thinking.
            “There’s a farmer’s daughter but she hated me on sight. Crazy I know and, to think, I thought it was impossible for a female to hate me until after I bagged her then forgot her name in the morning.”
            “She hates you? That’s… odd.” Low’s voice trailed off like she was in deep thought.

Out July 31, 2012
