The Countess Goodreads giveaway!

The Countess EBookV2 (1)Hello everyone! Just posting to let you all know that I have a giveaway on Goodreads for 1 autographed paperback copy of The Countess up until July 7th. You can enter to win by following the link here: http://www.goodreads.com/giveaway/show/55451-the-countess

I am making great progress on book three! Roughly 20k words in, and I am loving the way the story is developing and can’t wait to get it published. Speaking of which, the debut of The Countess last month was PHENOMENAL! I saw my sales of both The Lie and The Countess skyrocket and would like to thank each and every one of you who purchased my books. I even made it into the top 100 paid sales in three different genres for a few days which blew my mind. If you read either book and liked it, please drop by Amazon and give it a review.

You can pick up The Lie and The Countess on Amazon for just $2.99 each.

The Lie in top 100 paid Fantasy Romance

The Lie e-book CoverHi everyone! I am so thrilled to announce that my first published novel, The Lie has made it to the top 100 paid books on Amazon in the Fantasy-Romance genre! I am currently sitting at number 46, and I have to give a HUGE thank you to everyone who has purchased my book. The feedback and support I have received in such a short amount of time has been amazing. It might not seem like a big deal to some people, but as a newly published author this is just so exciting for me. The reception of this series has blown me away, I had not set any expectations when I published….it was just a story I wanted to tell, and I am thrilled that readers are enjoying the series.

Speaking of the series, I have started writing book 3 and hope to have it out for sale by fall 2013. You can keep up to date here on my blog, or follow me on Twitter as I check both on a daily basis.

I’d also like to remind you, if you purchased The Lie before April 26th 2013 there is a newly updated version of it. Slight punctuation and formatting errors were fixed, and you can find it by going to your Amazon account – Manage Your Kindle find The Lie and from the Actions drop down menu there should be the option to download the new version.

Once again, thank you to everyone who has purchased my books, and to my friends and family for all their love and support!

You can purchase both books on Amazon: The Lie  & The Countess 

Sincerely,

Holly

 

 

The Countess now available – The Lie updates

Hi everyone! I am pleased to announce that The Countess – Book Two in The Skyy Huntington Series is now available in e-book and paperback on Amazon! You can also add it to your bookshelves on Goodreads. I hope that you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

Get The Countess on Amazon

The Countess EBookV2 (1)

Also, an update on both the paperback and e-book versions of The Lie. There were formatting issues and slight punctuation issues, if you purchased The Lie before April 22nd there is a new version for your e-reader. I have asked Amazon to review the files and offer them to customers who previously bought a copy, but this can take up to 4 weeks, so if you want the new updated version right away you’ll have to email Amazon and ask them to push it to your device. Otherwise look in Manage Your Kindle from Amazon’s home page, then find The Lie in the list and when the update is available you’ll see it in the drop down menu.

As for the paperback version of The Lie, I’d be happy to ship you a new book free of charge if you bought it before April 22nd and email me a copy of your receipt.  There are slight changes to the cover of the book, and the formatting issues inside have been corrected. I do apologize for the errors, and I know that you have a lot of choices out there when it comes to buying a book and want to make sure you have the best reading experience possible when you purchase one of my books.

If you bought a copy of The Lie after April 22nd, you have the new and updated version of it, and none of the above applies to you 🙂

Thank you again to everyone who has purchased a copy of either of these books, and a huge thank you to my husband who really helped make The Countess a lot easier to format this time around 🙂

 

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Holly

The Countess back cover blurb teaser

Hey everyone, with 7 days until the release of The Countess – Book Two in the Skyy Huntington series, I thought I’d give you a glimpse of what to expect! Here is the back cover blurb. I’ll be releasing the cover art within the next day or so, and I think you’ll be blown away when you see Elizabeth Bathory come to life on this cover! Also, The Lie is still free today, Saturday April 20th until midnight pacific time so if you’ve been interested in reading it now is the time. Pick it up on Amazon – The Lie

And here is The Countess teaser:

Life got real complicated, real quick for Skyy Huntington. A few months ago she was wandering around in a cemetery snapping photos looking for ghosts. Now she finds herself submerged headfirst into a world filled with vampires and magic.

Picking up right where The Lie leaves off, Skyy boards a private jet with her love interest Aiden Carrick and her friends headed for Scotland, trying to buy them some breathing room from Countess Elizabeth Bathory’s henchmen.

Soon after their arrival, Skyy finds out they weren’t as safe as they thought when she gets abducted and taken into the dark world of the Countess. She finds herself being tortured at the hands of the woman who has perfected the art over many centuries, getting an up close and personal account of just how crazy the woman really is.

Meanwhile, her vampire friends form an uneasy alliance with Skyy’s grandfather, Killian Huntington and his order of Divine Assassins, ancestors of the servants who took a book of dark and powerful magic forged with the souls of Bathory’s victims from her castle in the 1600s.

While captive in Bathory’s castle, Skyy finds out that there is still some light within the darkness, forming a new friendship that will help change the course of her future.

New friends, and new enemies will battle for survival as Bathory gets closer and closer to finding her book.

The Lie, free April 20th – and also information on book two!

Hello everyone! I have some really important and exciting news. First off, in preparation for the launch of book two in The Skyy Huntington Series – The Countess, I am going to have a free promotion running this Saturday, April 20th for book one in the series – The Lie. So if you’ve been interested in picking it up and catching up before the release now is the time!  Also there has just been a new, updated edition of The Lie pushed to Amazon and this should be available for download within 24 hours if it doesn’t automatically update on your e-readers. There were some slight punctuation errors that were edited as well as some very minor changes in context. I do realize that there were some punctuation mistakes in the first edition and I hope you can all forgive me! Everything should be in order now as we move on to the exciting release of the second book.

I know I promised that the website would be updated last weekend, but I have not received my promotional images just yet and hope to have them by the end of the week. So until then I can give you the exciting news that book two, The Countess, is officially finished and I am more pleased than ever with the outcome. There is a ton of action, plenty of new characters, as well as all of the same familiar faces you’ve grown to love from The Lie. Elizabeth Bathory, the countess herself, will be making her debut in this book….and she is quite terrifying. I will warn readers now, this book is quite different from The Lie! There are some very graphic scenes, so prepare yourselves for an epic adventure. The book moves at a fast pace that I hope you will enjoy!

The tentative release date will be April 27th but there is a chance it could be released slightly sooner than that. But no worries, you’ll have a brand new copy of The Countess on your e-reader by the end of April either way. Once again, I thank all of my readers and encourage you to give me your thoughts and feedback after you’ve read the new book! Keep checking back in the days to come, as I’ll be updated my blog and Twitter at the very least until the website has the updated changes on it with the countdown to The Countess!

Sincerely,

Holly
