A Thank You

You know, it is very hard to step out on the stage and allow yourself to be vulnerable and judged by the public. It is quite different to make your work available over keeping a journal. Both are equally great cruades, but I didn’t care so much about who read my work or even if they did.

Now, it is a different case. I have been on a mission for some time now and finally decided it was time to really get serious about what I do because I have been told by many that I do it well.

I am having an affair with my characters. They never leave me alone. They are consuming my mind. I love them dearly. I cry when they feel sorrow. I have put in my sweat, tears and blood pressure for my readers’ benefit. It was for them that I continued to tell my characters’ story. I’m in love with my whole world and I want you to be too.

So…I want to applaud those who have taken the time to actually read my posts and my books. I owe a debt of gratitude to those who retweet me on Twitter. And I will love every one of my fans who propelled me forward even when I wanted to give up. You all know who you are and I will be forever grateful. Please keep spreading the word and telling the world how much you love the Aspen Series or Hyde and Zeek.

For those who have promoted me and wish me to mention a special you have going on or a new book being released, let me know! I am here to make the system work. And know that if I “like” your posts, it means I read them and they moved me in some way.

Big Promotion Tomorrow for The Price of Power!

The Price of Power Ebook on Sale!

I seem to always get the day wrong when setting up my promos. lol I thought I set it to start today, but alas, it will being at midnight my time and will be free until Thursday. This is the second book in my series, but you could read it and still know pretty much what is going on. You just miss all of the delightful drama of the first book! Just so you know, the first book is only .99. For those willing to take the time to try me out, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. If you would help me spread the word, I would be most grateful, for even if you can’t read my work you may know someone that will. This I appreciate a whole lot as well.

You  may be thinking that you just don’t read the medieval stuff. I’m here to tell you that I have changed a lot of people’s minds on that subject. For you become a part of the story and love the characters for who they are. You barely notice the time period. I tried to make it a book that you can read with ease, no dictionary required, yet rich enough that you step into my world when you crack the book open.

I can’t force anyone to watch my trailers or read my work, but I can ask for support in seeking out my dreams. I appreciate all of you who have helped me and continue to do so, in order for me to get to this point. I love all of you!  🙂

Can I sum it up?

So there was another blogger that challenged authors to be able to wrap the entire book into one sentence. How’s this?

Noble Courage is a medieval tale of love, greed, and power in which Aspen Tiller finds her way to become an angel for a lost and downtrodden people, wherein she finds out the difference between love at first sight and a deep, true love but must fight with all her might to hang onto everything she holds dear. ~ Daisha Marie Korth

Download Noble Courage for .99 from Kindle or the prequel, Tales of Elgolan for free until 10/1/12!

 

Tales of Elgolan is now LIVE!

So after I finished Noble Courage, I really struggled with the next book. My initial plan was to begin the book many years in the future and my fans made it clear that was NOT what they wanted.

So as I floundered for about eight months on the first few paragraphs of the book, I was getting emails about when people could expect the next book. I was seriously frustrated. With working more than 40 hours a week, there was no way I could pump out a whole novel in four months. (did I mention I had a house of five boys at the time?) There was just no time.

And so it happened, I quit my job. I stayed home for one month between jobs and in that time, I wrote this little prequel that translates into about 150 pages. It was first started as a series of short stories for the Amazon Shorts program. I had part one done and part two started. But after I had published the first two with them, they dissolved the program. I was at a loss.

I kept writing those little stories and eventually, I put out the collection of them that defines the way life was before Noble Courage began. The number one question I was asked after people read Noble Courage was how did Vatric end up the way he was. I wanted to give some background to my characters because every story has to have a beginning!

I think the story is very cool. Believe me, it was difficult to get times, events, and ages to all match up in hind sight. But if you read Noble Courage first, it is fun to see the puzzle all come together.

So yesterday, I put the book on Amazon Kindle. It has NEVER been made into an ebook before so this will be great fun! It does run for free downloads until Monday so go pick it up! I thank you so much for reading, you will never know how much it means to me that you take the time to escape to my world!

If you would share this post or RT on Twitter, you will be my hero!

Doctor Love’s Two Cents…

“My boy, do not be so rash as to throw death at everyone. It should be God who takes a life, not another person.” ~ Doctor Love, Noble Courage Chapter 9

Humanity is so quick to steal that which does not belong to them…including life. It is such a gift and yet so many of us make those sad decisions that bring about the ultimate end of another’s life. Yes, I am most fortunate that I do not have to make those choices. Nor could I, I don’t think. Although my writing is riddled with death, it is the taking of imaginary people who come alive upon my pages. However, I’m so glad that it isn’t on my word that young men and women die on foreign soil. But I do recognize that those brave souls fight to protect me…and they don’t even know who I am. It amazes me that such a bond could be forged between people who have never met. Yet the pride I feel becomes all the stronger because one of my own is willing to be one of those who risks his life so that we can continue to live ours. Thank you to our military and thank you to Alex for paying the price I could not.
