Night Demon tour: Guest Post + Giveaway

An Ode to eBooks… 

Hi everyone –
Big thanks to Andie for bringing me and Night Demon all the way to Hungary! One of the most fun parts of seeing my books published is meeting international readers and imagining my characters being introduced around the world. Digital books are making world travel for books much easier and making it easier for readers to find their favorite authors.

I’ve been a book lover ever since I could read. Our local library used to have a 3 item limit to check out books, but they gave me a special red card so I had permission to check out 10 items at a time. (I thought I was hot stuff, lemme tell ya!)

I love scanning book covers, reading blurbs, and finding new authors or a new series. But I have a secret to share…

I fell desperately in love with my Kindle! *insert B-movie horror scream*

My Kindle affair started a couple of years ago. My Mom got me a Kindle for my birthday. I was very curious about the “eBook craze”, but I was fairly certain I would only use the Kindle for books that were only available in eBook format.

But once I started reading on it, I fell in love. The type was larger, I read faster, I never lost my place or had to hunt for something to mark my pages, and it was completely hands-free. I think it was the hands-free that ended up winning me over.

Since I write at night, my only reading time is during my lunchtime every day. I never realized what a pain it was to keep my book propped open while trying to eat a sandwich! My Kindle eliminated the crazy contortions needed to keep my elbow pressed against the spine of the book to hold it open while I munched my sandwich. Magic! It lies on the table, with its larger font and I just press one button to flip the page.

I was in love.

But for weeks, I felt like I’d gone to the dark side. My love for my kindle was so strong that I downloaded some books into my Kindle that I already owned in paperback on my TBR pile because I knew I’d never again crack open that paperback and do battle while trying to eat my lunch. It took some time before I was able to hold my head high and tell others that “I love reading on my Kindle!”

My new book Night Demon was released as an eBook only read, and I get so jazzed that people are buying and downloading the eBook that I’m hosting a contest for readers to send me pictures of themselves with Night Demon! You can see some of the photos posted here http://facebook.com/NightSeries (It’s open internationally too!)

So what about you? Do you have an eReader? Do you love it? Let me know… You secret is safe with me!


Deep within the Yucatan jungle a demon has awakened...

Gretchen Finch's job would be much easier if she weren't alone in the jungle with a brilliant recluse whose every glance sets her on fire. But the more she focuses on her work, the closer she gets to unlocking the mysteries of a terrible creature - the Night Demon - that threatens the world as she knows it. Though her scientific mind tells her it's impossible, she's beginning to believe the ancient Mayan tales as the sinister jungle comes alive around her.

Lukas Smith has spent hundreds of years searching for answers to his immortal Night Walker nature. As a series of ancient glyphs become clear, he's about to find out more than he'd ever hoped, but the more he learns, the more his fate intertwines with the Night Demon, and the harder it becomes to hide his immortal secret from the beautiful, intelligent Gretchen.

Together, they must find a way to stop the inexplicable violence and mass destruction surging across the earth before the Night Demon destroys more than just mankind.
