Raves, Rants, and Releases

I wrote my first rant/hate letter to Trane today.  Now they’re telling us that they have no idea when our compressor will be in — because a hurricane in Mexico washed out all the roads.  Nothing can stop a Trane…except a hurricane in Mexico?!?  Meanwhile, school starts in two weeks and my kids are sleeping on the floor in our bedroom (and have been since June) because that’s where the window unit is.  Oh, and it hit 115 heat index this week.  Yay for Trane! 

As for raves, thank you to Nicole for her review of Beautiful Death:

I really enjoyed this book. I actually considered yelling at Joely over Twitter at one point while I was reading it… because it was 2am, I had tons of things I needed to do the following day, and I couldn’t. Put. The. E-reader. Down.

And finally, a huge congratulations to my friend Jenna Reynolds who has another Ellora’s Cave book releasing today!  I had the pleasure of reading Madison Avenue Vampire and I loved the 1960s touches that really made this a unique vampire read.  She writes that Mad Men inspired the story:  what if Don Draper were a vampire?  If you’re in the mood for a sexy read with an interesting time period, check it out!

P.S. I’ll post the winners from the Break 20 Contest this Friday when I hopefully share the next snippet of Shadowed.  We didn’t hit 20 reviews on Amazon but that’s okay–we still generated several ratings and reviews.  Thank you to everyone who participated!

  2. Have to say I agree with Nicole…I can never put your stories down either!

    How about Marc Warren for Sig? Saw him in an episode of Dr. Who last night…might work.

    Sorry about the continuing A/C saga.

    Oh, but I forgot. I still need to cross-post the review EVERYWHERE. Because I want more in that world, and if me generating buzz is the way to make that happen, I need to see just how much buzz I can generate… 😉 😛

  4. Thanks for the mention about my book, Joely! You’re the best! 😀

  5. You are far more patient than I am in regards to your A/C! I wrote a 3 page scalding letter to my home warranty company after we were without hot water for 3 weeks one February. Hope the A/C gets fixed ASAP!

  6. Nicole, you and me both! I’ve been achin for some Charon since I first read the first draft. *drools shamelessly*

    Gimme that big, beautiful, bald beast any day of the week and ESPECIALLY twice on Sunday!
