From AG Carothers:
"It's finally here people!! I've been sitting on this cover for months. It was like torture. Lol

AngstyG did another fabulous job on this cover folks AND what makes it even better is my custom dragon drawn by the always amazing Adrienne Wilder!! :)Adrienne took in the task of drawing the head of Anthony's dragon form and put up with my nitpicking to bring one of my favorite characters to life. <3Thank you so much!!" 
Dragon's Hoard is up for pre-order if you want to grab it now. :)

📗BLURB📗
Previously on Dragon War Chronicles, the first strike was made against their enemies, but the cost was heavy.

Mourning their losses, Danica still must prepare for dragons that will be coming to woo her. She already knows the dragon she wants to mate to, but will she convince Kollin that she's ready to commit?

Of all the dragons going to Toulouse to meet Danica and see if they have a chance only one has a completely different agenda. He knows which dragon he wants and it isn't Danica. Will Xavier win the heart of Danica's brother?

Anchin Luu, Danica's brother and manager of her Las Vegas casino, Dragon's Hoard, has spent his whole life alone due to his deadly nature. A broken experiment and retired assassin Anchin isn't sure what to make of the water dragon that has invaded his life.

Love is in the air, but so is gunpowder. SLIPs going missing, Coyotes crashing parties, and a mating you'll never forget are all in store for you on the next exciting installment of Dragon War Chronicles.

Attention: This book contains explicit sexual content between consenting dragons depictions of relationships that are MF and with a dash of doublemint fun.

Epic by Adrienne Wilder on sale for 99 cents

Epic is on sale for $.99!
Epic is a departure from Adrienne's darker books. You might even call if fluffy! lol.

Epic
by Adrienne Wilder
June 16, 2017
Andrew Atler has learned the hard way, fiction is far better than real life. In his romance novels, the world is safe, predictable, and there is always a happy ending. Best of all, he can safely fall in love and the person will never know. There he can weave a tale of perfect passion plus pay the bills.

Matt Grim flies the colors of Hell’s Legion. When he’s not riding his chopper, he’s working as a bouncer for the Six. Matt’s life consists of drinking, playing in a band, and burning the midnight oil in the dungeon. He lives hard, plays hard, and rides even harder.

Two people who would never be a part of the same EPIC love story.

But sometimes those fairy tale clichés have a way of working magic.

And sometimes…sometimes those happy endings do come true.

New Release from R. Phoenix - Salvus (The Omega's Alpha #1)

Congratulations to R. Phoenix on the release of Salvus!
Salvus (MM non-shifter ABO/omegaverse mpreg): The Omega's Alpha #1
by R. Phoenix
July 28, 2019
Van doesn't care if Omar is his fated mate -- or whatever other bullshit the world believes in. He's not going to be trapped in a relationship because the universe says he should be. Worse yet, Van's not a huge fan of overbearing, entitled, pretentious alphas. Tired of living under the rule of alphas, he runs away to Salvus, a city governed by betas... only to discover that having their protection may not be as idyllic as it sounds...

Omar knows his mate hates him -- or at least, Van hates what he is. Even though they have an explosive relationship centered around Omar helping Van through his heats, he still cares enough to agree to take Van to Salvus. But once his mate is gone, he discovers Salvus hides sinister secrets.

*Salvus contains a CLIFFHANGER ending. Its sequel, Escape, has an anticipated release date of early September.*

The Show not Tell Cheat Sheet - Galaxy Con

This weekend I am attending GalaxyCon in Raleigh, NC.
On Friday, July 26 I am giving a panel about Show no Tell. Here are what I'm going to cover in case anyone wants it.

The Show not Tell cheat sheet. 


To know what can be shown, ask yourself---
What does your main character see, hear, taste, smell, feel?
What reactions do they observe in the other characters around them?

Actions have consequence---
What are the physical, mental, and sensory responses you would have to particular stimulus? Now apply it to your character.

Bill was cold.

Bill shivered in his coat and blew a warm breath against the tips of his burning fingers.

Show instead of dialog tags----

*With Tags*

“You left your coat at my house,” Jon said. He took off his backpack and removed Jim’s coat from inside.

*Without Tags*

Jon took off his backpack and opened it. “You left your coat at my house.” He removed Jim’s coat and held it out to him.

Get creative to avoid repetition---
Showing that it’s cold.

Mike exhaled a breath of white.
Mike rubbed his hands together.
Mike tucked his hands under his armpits.
“I don’t know where--” Mike’s teeth chattered. “The guy is.”

Don’t overdo it---
Use showing when you want to invest the reader into your character or the situation.

If your character has the ability to fight, show them by how the character fights.

Is your character an expert pickpocket? Show through action.

Is your character an excellent liar and manipulator, are they intimidating in presence? Show it through their behaviors, their choices, the way they set other characters up, and the visual reactions of secondary scene characters.

And sometimes Bob just walks across the room.

PRACTICE---

Like any new technique, it will take time to learn. But don’t give up. Practice with scenes that are not in your current manuscript. Distance yourself from your current work to keep things objective. Or, if you prefer only to practice with what you’re currently writing, then break it down to a page at a time.

Cover Reveal: Don't... Book 4 by Jack L Pyke

Shout out to my friend and fellow writer Jack L Pyke on the cover reveal 

From Jack's FB post about the book:
"It's also the crossover world with Lynn Kelling and her guys from the Deliver Us series: Trace, Dare, and Gabe. There have been some serious edits in this, including a new scene with Gray and Elena (really showing Gray's dark side!). 

Huge thanks to Adrienne Wilder for this stunning cover art. 

And this one is all Gray's pov, and just who he has to wake up..."

In the aftermath of Jack Harrison’s release from the psychiatric unit, Gray Raoul’s innate 'born this way bastard way' instinct is to brutally repay the one responsible for financing Jack and Jan’s torturous psychological reconditioning. But that person is a professional player in their own right, one who knows exactly how to manipulate everyone in Gray’s life. To help negotiate this delicate situation, Gray seeks to contract Trace and his ex-Diadem Dom, Gabriel Hunter. But the more Gray seems to regain control, the clearer it becomes that there’s something not quite right about Jan Richards. As Jan’s world unravels, taking Jack and Gray with it and bringing out one particular deadly player, Gray’s left with one last defence: break Jack down in order to partner up with Martin. But once freed, Martin’s out for retribution of his own, and he wants to get downright personal with Gray.

Complete trust between Master, sub, and lover, between Gray, Jack, and Jan, is about to be tested to the absolute limit.
