Welcome to the Evernight Holiday Blog Hop!



Welcome to the Evernight Holiday Blog Hop!
We love the holidays, we love making our readers happy and we love giving away swag. What better way to do that than to hold a blog hop?

Here's how it works... the more blogs you hop to (shown below) the more chance you have of winning prizes. Each site on the hop is offering a prize and Evernight is offering an iPad 2 as the grand prize! To be in with a chance of winning the site prize simply follow the blog you're visiting and leave a comment which includes your email address. Each entry on each blog is then counted towards the grand prize draw. The more entries you have, the better your chance of winning that iPad 2! You also get extra points for liking the Evernight Facebook page
http://www.facebook.com/#!/evernightpublishing. Just make sure you let us know in the comments that you've done so.

Happy Hopping!


Now that we've covered Evernight's prizes, here is mine. I'm offering to three winners their choice of my books published at Evernight Publishing.

Hot Winter Nights Blog Hop Giveaway!

 
I love blog hops and here we are with another one. This one is very special with a GRAND PRIZE which you can enter by clicking on the pic above and head over to Nicole Morgan's blog. It is worth over $100 in value. It consists of: $50 Amazon Gift Card - $10 Bookstrand Bucks - eBook prize package including: 11 eBooks. Hot Winter Nights Blog Hop is only through Dec. 5. Nicole Morgan will be going through everyone’s blog posts on December 5th and will announce the grand prize winner.
 
 
 
Now, for some extra goodies, I am offering prizes of mine own. Three lucky winners will be selected from those who leave me comments. To make those cold, winter nights especially hot, I'm offering to three lucky winners a free download of a very special and very hot Christmas book of mine called Moonlight and Madness, a murder mystery/paranormal set in the French Polynesia and around Christmas time.
Here is a sample ...
 


 
Surviving the brutal attack by her husband was a miracle, killing him an accident, dying was the worst -- coming back with the ability to see ghosts just sucks!

Determined to rebuild her life, Emma Angeles finds Paradise to be perfect. Meeting Dayton Kane made it even more so. When she starts to see her dead husband, Emma's sanity is tested. Wanting Dayton with every fiber of her being, fear he could be hurt holds her back. Upon learning Dayton might lose the family castle, Emma takes the bold step to help him by holding a Christmas Party at Gray Stone.

Then tragedy strikes and a local island woman is murdered. Emma takes a stand. With the help of Dayton, his great, great, great-grandfather, a sexy pirate who haunts Paradise, and the recently deceased Sadie, she is determined to put her husband back in the grave--permanently.
 
Cheers and Good Luck!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Today, I can honestly say I'm grateful for what I have. Some say they are, I know I did and many times didn't really feel it. But today, after this year, I am grateful and thankful for the wonderful people in my life, top person--my daughter. She is my best friend and partner in crime (not crime really but we do have a lot of fun). Without her, I'd have lost it and wound up in a mental hospital. I am so grateful and thankful to Bear, my dog who thinks he is a cat, Chaos, my psychotic Tortie, Sophie, the princesss cat, Vern, the troublemaker cat, and our Atreu, our monster cat (he weigh's 26 pounds). My family and my life. To the one who gave me such a wonderful family, is God. He led me through hard times and sadly, it's not over. With more surgeries in my future, I face more delays in writing, but with determination these will be the last and I can write as my mind and heart need to.

And last and never the least, to my fellow writers and all the dedicated readers and fans who leave me in awe and much gratitude for sharing the love of adventure and romance in the written word.

Happy Thanksgiving and may the Holidays bring families together and new and wonderful stories to share.

Cheers,

Wend

Release Day Winners!!!


Debby, PC, and Mindy are the winners of Blood Keep's Release Day Contest! Congrats and thank to all who left comments.

Blood Keep is released and a contest, too!







I am so proud to announce to the re-release of Blood Keep! Through much agony, rewriting and editing, Blood Keep shines as never before and I am so excited to show the world what I've done that I am holding a contest to celebrate. I will pick three names from all who leave me a comment. Cheers!

EXCERPT:

“Sir Drago, I’ll have my letter now.”

Clearing his throat, he fought the urge to retort, reminding himself of her station and his lack of one. Osric handed it to him. When she withdrew a white handkerchief from under her chain mail and wiped away the sweat collecting along her brow, he asked, “My lady, are you in need of a physician?”

Otto and Brandon rushed forward, alarmed by his question. Isabella’s hand whipped up, halting them. “The letter?” She coldly eyes him as she waited for him to place the letter into her extended hand.

Scowling, Nicolas did so and returned to his seat, retrieving his cup. Eyes narrowed, he watched her as she broke the wax seal. Scanning the contents, he saw the blood drain from her face, and rage contorted her lush mouth into a snarl as she speared him with such hate and fury he actually recoiled in his seat.

Jumping to her feet, she shook the letter in her left hand at him as her right tightened around the hilt of her sword. “Have you any prior knowledge to the contents in the letter I have?”

Wary, he shook his head. “I have none, my lady. Why do you ask?”

She leaned nearer to him, as if searching his face for any sign of dishonesty. Swallowing hard, he met her furious gaze steadily. Dear Lord in Heaven, what the hell was in that letter?

Apparently satisfied, Isabella released her sword and returned to her chair with an air of defeat. She motioned for Otto and Brandon to approach, giving them the letter. Together, they read it and abruptly looked to her, then to Nicolas, who was about to scream from the strained silence.

Unable to take it anymore, Nicolas jabbed a finger at the letter. “What did His Grace, King Edward write?”

“Here. Read it for yourself.” She took it from her men and tossed the letter to him. “I believe you’ll find the irony of it to be quite amusing.”

Taking up the parchment, Nicolas quickly read the contents, halting at the word “marriage”. Jaw dropping, he looked up at the seething woman. The hatred burning in those beautiful eyes confirmed it. The King had decided it time for Lady Isabella to remarry, allowing her to choose between him and Lord Alden. Grinding his teeth, he realized they both had been maneuvered by the King of England!

Whom would she choose?

Her next words left him reeling.

“When do you, my lord, wish to wed?”

Stunned, he stared at her dumbly. Never having given marriage a serious thought, content in serving King Edward, he was forced to face it immediately. The merits of marrying Lady Isabella were enormous. The upside—he would become a baron, rich and powerful, an entire army at his command. However, the downside saw him married to a strong-willed woman who rode a possessed piece of horseflesh named Lucifer! Damn, he needed more time to consider if marriage to the Baroness would be a suitable fit—for him!

Quite certain Lady Isabella desired not to marry any more than he did, Nicolas called her bluff. “When do you wish to have the ceremony?” Uncertainty flushed her sallow features, then was replaced by a cold, calculating expression. Suddenly, he wasn’t so assured of himself around the unpredictable female.

“Brandon, fetch Father Abraham! We wed in one quarter of an hour. Does that suit you, my lord?” She glared at Nicolas.

Howloween Blog Hop


Welcome to the much anticipated launch of the Howloween Blog Hop! I've embedded the link in the picture for better ease to return to the Blog Hop to continue your journey and more chances to win more free swag from over 300 plus authors, bloggers, and reviewers who have joined in the fun to celebrate Halloween 2012!

For my part in the fun, I am giving away to 7 people—each will get three free books of their choice from my collection of published novels. Please leave your name and contact information to be entered to win. Here is what you can choose from ...


 
~Borne Vampire II: Damned by Sin~

Feared by his own kind, Vlad ‘Sin’ Dracula has awoken to a strange and wondrously changed world. What surprises him most is the ruthless, sexy as hell, Slayer who wants nothing more than to chop off his head. Until he kisses her. Everything changes. Sin is ordered by his maker to either kill or turn Mina. Sin must choose--be the hero and save the girl or be the evil the world deems him to be.

 

Mina Romulas is fighting more than the Damned--she’s fighting for her soul and the desire she feels for her enemy. Death awaits her if she chooses to be damned by Sin. Hell will be her life if Mina walks away from the one man who brings her to life.

Available at:
http://store.newconceptspublishing.com/wend-petzler/borne-vampires-book-ii-damned-by-sin/and can also be purchased at Amazon, Nook, Itunes, All Romance Ebooks, and Smashwords.

 
~Borne Vampires III: Wulf's Redemption~
 
Secrets and lies, past and present, all seeped in betrayal come full circle when Alexander's deepest fears come face to face with ghosts of his past. How can he keep his past a secret from Kai when the one place in the world he wants to run from, the very same place where he lost his humanity, is the only hope they have to survive.

Available at:
http://store.newconceptspublishing.com/wend-petzler/borne-vampires-book-iii-wulfs-redemption/and can also be purchased at Amazon, Nook, Itunes, All Romance Ebooks, and Smashwords.


~Moonlight and Madness~
 
Surviving the brutal attack by her husband was a miracle, killing him an accident, dying was the worst -- coming back with the ability to see ghosts just sucks!

Determined to rebuild her life, Emma Angeles finds Paradise to be perfect. Meeting Dayton Kane made it even more so. When she starts to see her dead husband, Emma's sanity is tested. Wanting Dayton with every fiber of her being, fear he could be hurt holds her back. Upon learning Dayton might lose the family castle, Emma takes the bold step to help him by holding a Christmas Party at Gray Stone.

Then tragedy strikes and a local island woman is murdered. Emma takes a stand. With the help of Dayton, his great, great, great-grandfather, a sexy pirate who haunts Paradise, and the recently deceased Sadie, she is determined to put her husband back in the grave--permanently.

http://www.evernightpublishing.com/moonlight-and-madness-by-wend-petzler/ and can also be purchased at Amazon, Nook, Itunes, All Romance Ebooks, and Smashwords.


 
~The Curse of the Scarab King~
 
Cursed, buried alive and waiting for over four thousand years to feel the sun again, Setti realizes that freedom bears a heavy price. His desire for revenge and the woman with red hair who makes his blood boil and heart beat with life, threatens to destroy what he must do to remove his evil sister from power and restore Egypt. Can he ignore what he feels for Kate and embrace his curse for the sake of his country or will he defy the Gods and claim the woman from the future as his?

Available at:
http://www.evernightpublishing.com/the-curse-of-the-scarab-king-by-wend-petzler/and can also be purchased at Amazon, Nook, Itunes, All Romance Ebooks, and Smashwords.

 

~WATER WITCH~
Some legends should be left buried in the past, others should never be forgotten ….
Rescue the girl, dodge a dragon, fight a giant, and try to fit in the Dark ages seem simple enough, right? Not when your name is Anakin Walker and you live in the 21st Century. Ridiculed his entire life because of his name, Anakin Walker finds purpose when he becomes a knight at the Faires. Still, there was something missing in his life and wants more than just being a weekend warrior. Careful what you wish for because when the Hand of Destiny selects you there’s no telling which century--or world you’ll find yourself in.

~Lady Thief~
Lady Thief more than meets her match when the Butcher of Acre takes command of Castle Sanctuary. Despite her misgivings, Eiry realizes too late Lucian is the only man who stirs her heart and makes her yearn for his touch. Can she trust a man rumored to possess no soul? Will her courage and love save him from his own personal hell and help him become the hero she sees in him?

Caught up in a centuries old battle for power, Kate finds herself thrown back into ancient Egypt, when the priests of RA, using the Black Book of Fire, resurrect the Scarab King, and use it to send him back in time to defeat the evil queen SobeKnefru.

Cursed, buried alive and waiting for over four thousand years to feel the sun again, Setti realizes that freedom bears a heavy price. His desire for revenge and the woman with red hair who makes his blood boil and heart beat with life, threatens to destroy what he must do to remove his evil sister from power and restore Egypt.

Ebook Sales: Is it the story or the package?

My question today is: Does ebooks have the same impact on people as prints?

What's your view on it?

First of all, I'm a print junkie. Something about the feel of a book, the smell of ink and paper, the memories when I handle a book shoots me right back to my youth. Reading books was the connection I had with my mom, my friends -- heck we learned about sex and romance through romance books! We would read horror books by Stephen King, hiding them from our parents and reading them in the middle of the night with a flashlight and a blanket thrown over to further hide our adventure. I soon was reading the Howling, Dune, Bethany's Sin, the Dragon Riders of Pern series, Rose in Winter, Shanna, and the Wolf and the Dove. All these venues taught me so much about life, evil, redemption, and hope. It gave me the courage to be adventrous, to go out and seek out Life.

Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled people are reading more, just wondering if books today are having the same impact as it had for me. Is it the story or the packaging? I am curious to know what readers and authors think about this.
