Have I said before how much I love this time of year?
Mmmm. Fall. Halloween. English Toffee lattes and Sweet potato pies.
And of course, for all the wonderful chances to get FREE books and swag through the seasonal Blog hops! I’m participating in one such Halloween hop that has soooo many participating Authors and sites that my head is spinning and I’m giddy with the excitement of it all.
In case you don’t understand how a “hop” works, just click the banner above and find yourself with gads of other sites to “hop” on over to. Each site is giving something away, whether free books or cool swag, so definitely check out the other sites and see what you can win!
Now, for my Giveaway:
I’m offering up a paperback copy of Kill Me for your reading pleasure, an ebook copy of Kill Me, and a cool little mini-poster that features the Kill Me cover art (autographed too!)
After waiting several weeks (and chanting in the moonlight, and chasing a rabbit so I could pet it’s foot) Amazon has finally lowered the price of KILL ME to $0.00 – so it’s finally FREE! I have no idea how long the mighty ‘Zon will keep it free, so I’d suggest you hop on over there and snag a copy pronto. (Ebook is free. Not the paperback)
For those of you without an eReader, or who just prefer a physical copy in your hot little hands, I’m also running a paperback giveaway over on GoodReads, so there’s still hope for you yet!
Vampire Bette wants to find a human with untapped talents that she can mold and control. Using a haunted violin, she lures Claire in with her lilting song and bewitching smile. In that moment, Claire’s life is unraveled and she finds herself with more than strange dreams and overdue bills to worry about. Much more.
Unfortunately for Claire, life isn’t all song lyrics and seduction. Tied to darkness by blood and power, Claire must harness her abilities if she has any hope of returning home to her daughter and regaining her former life.
I just got some exciting news… our novel Kill Me was featured as a Golden Review book over on Indie Author Anonymous!
It’s cool enough that the good folks over there chose to feature Kill Me, but to aslo recognize that it has great ratings so far is even better! (*Golden Review books have to have at a minimum 10 reviews on Amazon, and have an average of 4 stars or better on the 5 star scale.)
This from their post…
**Every GOLDEN REVIEW book has at LEAST 10 reviews; averaging a four star rating.**
“When I started reading Kill me, the first in a trilogy by new author Alex Owens I expected the usual – Vampires, Intrigue, Drama and a little bit of Spice. What I did not expect was the hilarious writing! A few pages into the book and it is crystal clear that Owen’s strong suit is her ability to hit the funny bone every few sentences. ”

Doh! I completely spaced on telling everyone that my book Kill Me made an appearance over on the wildly popular blog VampChix & Bite Club.
Honestly, this summer is kicking my tail.
Between my other job as a Photographer (wedding and Senior portrai season!), kids, baseball, helping my sis plan her wedding, writing, prepping for back to school… well, you get the picture. I’m uber-busy.
Which is why I’m so thankful for other blogs that read, review or even post about my books. Nothing like web copy that I don’t have to do a thing for!
Kill Me (book one in the paranormal / UF BLOOD CHORD series) is now available for those of you out there that have Sony ereaders! I did notice, however, that no only is the author bio incorrect, but it appears to have someone else’s bio pasted in place of the correct one. Sigh.
At least it’s active now, though!
So I finally figured out how to link to Kill Me on iBooks, thanks to a wonderful reader. So here it is! Go wild
Hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday. Seriously
The first novel in the Blood Chord Series, Kill Me, has finally ended its ninety-day stint in the Amazon Select program, so now it’s on the way out to the other major book retailers. It can take anywhere from a few hours to a few weeks to show up everywhere, so I’ll have to pop back in with updates as they become available.
For now, you can view (or better yet, purchase, which would earn you major book karma points!) Kill Me at the following vendors:
Amazon: Kindle ebook or paperback
Paperback via Createspace
Barnes & Noble: ebook
Smashwords (multiple ebook formats)
- And also KOBO (added 7/17)
And to give readers something to get lost in while lounging on the beach or by the pool, I’ve decided to offer a coupon for 50% off the list price at Smashwords.
Just click the link, add the book to your cart and input the coupon code: RV36V and you will be able to download whatever ebook format will work with your ereader. But hurry, the coupon is only good through August 1st!
(All vendors will be listed on the Blood Chord Series site, so check there too!)
