Cover Reveal and Giveaway for Forsaken by the Others (H&W Investigations #5) by Jess Haines

Coming July 2, 2013!

The Others–vampires, werewolves, things that go chomp in the night–don’t just live in nightmares anymore. They’ve joined with he mortal world. And for private investigator Shiarra Waynest, that means mayhem…
Have a one night stand with a vampire, and you can end up paying for it for eternity. P.I. Shiarra Waynest, an expert on the Others, knows that better than most. Yet here she is, waking up beside charismatic vamp Alec Royce with an aching head…and neck. Luckily, Shia has the perfect excuse for getting out of town–namely, a couple of irate East Coast werewolf packs who’d like to turn her into a chew toy.
On Royce’s suggestion, Shia temporarily relocates to Los Angeles. But something is rotten–literally–in the state of California, where local vampires are being attacked by zombies. Who could be powerful enough to control them–and reckless enough to target the immortal? Following the trail will lead Shia to a terrifying truth, and to an ancient enemy with a personal grudge…

Contest to win VIP registration to #AADSAV

Contest update!

We have extended the contest till Feb 15th and added another amazing prize!

Our book, SOMETHING DARKER is new, sexy, competitively priced and highly addictive! We know when you get your hands on it you’re going to fall in love with the sexy team of gods that burn up the pages!

And for your trouble, we are giving away three HUGE prizes! A VIP registration package to Authors After Dark, the fastest growing reader centric convention in Romance today (including your registration, VIP badge and treatment, Free parking, Basket of our backlist and goodies and brekky with Stella and Audra at the con!)! 

And if that weren’t enough, we are giving away a DAY PASS for the event! These passes are normally for locals only, but we are giving one away to be used ANY DAY of the con you choose!

And how about some electronics? A Nook Touch? Yep One of those are on deck as well!

And if you can’t make 2013 in Savannah, well then your prize rolls over to 2014 in Charlotte!

Proceeds from this book go toward getting Audra to the states for the convention this year! As we ONLY use our royalties to travel, it’s imperative we sell the books needed to get her here… and we think 2.99 for a book is a fair trade off for a shot at some fabulous prizes!

We wont be giving the big prizes (except for the Nook) unless we hit a minimum of 200 sales and we are shy of that so why not pick up your copy and get entered to win.
