Welcome Fall Carnival Blog Hoppers!

Welcome, readers! Lovely to meet you! Let’s get comfy and get to know each other 🙂

Please click on my “follow” button and subscribe to my very occasional (erratic?) newsletter—located in the right-hand sidebar—for 2 more entries to win the grand-prize $70 Amazon gift card. You’ll also be entered to win an Amazon e-book of mine—title of your choice—here with me.

I write lots of different kinds of stuff… all of it racy, a little touch of taboo. Like contemporary romance? Take a peek at Old Enough To Know Better and Ingenue. Curious about LGBT romance? Visit my Desert MĂ©nage series. For a futuristic take, give The Footmen a try. Is paranormal suspense your catnip? My Amanda Ryder, V.I. series might be for you. Please take a few minutes to explore my “worlds,” and I hope to see you again soon here in my little nook of the interwebz.

Hopefully, you’ve already visited Camelia Miron Skiba and Mimi Sebastian, the authors preceding this stop on the blog hop. If not, I hope you’ll do so before continuing on. You can also visit the Desert Muses blog for details on the blog hop and prizes.

Four more fantastic authors (and chances to win prizes) await you on your tour! Next up, the talented Anne Wilson

Good luck, and thanks for stopping by,

Shanyn

Time for a Shout Out…

This is the time of year for counting our blessings, and I’m grateful to count an amazing group of women indie writers as my dear friends. Whenever we spend time together, I’m re-energized with creative fire and inspiration. A few months ago, we agreed to pool our talents, connections, and data to form a collective. As a result, earlier this month we “gave birth” to a group blog: The Desert Muses. You can follow us at the blog and/or Twitter account (@DesertMuses).

DMT_BV_setupWe recently spent a lovely (well, rainy and cold, actually) Saturday at the Book Vault in Mesa, AZ. Thanks to everyone who braved the weather to see us, and extra thanks to independent bookstores like Book Vault for their wonderful (and much appreciated) support of local authors.
