Order: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | IndieBound

Third in the chilling saga.

Countess Selene is the Shadow Guard’s only female member. She sacrificed herself to save the people of London and is now under a sleeping spell in the Tower of London, guarded by Raven warriors.

Super Saturday

It’s a beautiful day here, and I’m spending the day cleaning the Lenox household and working on some ideas that have been swirling around in the back of my head for a few days.

What does that mean? With new ideas, I usually work up a 12 to 14 page synopsis, outlining the story, and zap it off to my agent so she can let me know her thoughts. Then, after discussing, I start writing pages!

If any of you have sent e-mails, I apologize for not responding! My desktop computer (where I receive my Kim Lenox emails) is dead because of issues associated with an evil program that came with my Blackberry. I attempted to uninstall it, and, well, you know how that is. Some programs are like the Dark Bride (reference, Shadow Guard Book 2: So Still the Night) and they don’t want to EVER LET YOU GO!

So my desktop is at the computer hospital. Crocodesigns is helping me access my e-mails on my netbook, so soon I’ll be up and running. 

Good news! The Shadow Guard series has sold to a German publisher. I’m extremely excited about that, and I’ll share more details in the near future.

I hope that you, blog reader, are doing well. As always, share in the comments section what you’re reading and recommending right now! I love book recommendations and read a lot myself. I just finished a non-romance, DUMA KEY by Stephen King, and it was fantastic.

Tomorrow I’ll share what new romance I’m reading.

To celebrate, I’m going to do a giveaway! I noticed that a lot of you come to my website searching for NIGHT FALLS DARKLY, the first book in the Shadow Guard Series. You may know that it is no longer available at Amazon or Barnes & Nobles or other bookstores. But guess what? I’ve got a stash.

I ask because it’s readers who are visiting the website, and I’m sure that they, like myself, love to get book recommendations. (You don’t even have to say it’s one of my books!)

Your recommendations also let me know who I need to invite to come and guest blog at!

So tell your friends! Free books! Easy contest.

If any of you are in the Dallas/Fort Worth area this weekend, I will be hosting a table at the Buns & Roses Literacy Tea. You can come meet me and lots of great authors, and get some signed books!

“This Shadow Guard installment is rich with tension, desire, betrayal and a strong sense of friendship.”
