Contest for $50 Amazon gift card!


UPDATE:  Congrats to Julie for winning!  (Sorry about the email mixup and the post commenting mixup!). 🙂

Update:  The comment section is now working at the bottom of the post.  YAY!

Hi all!

So, we updated the website.  What do you think?  Nice, right?  :). To celebrate, I’m having a contest to give away a $50 Amazon gift card.  To enter, just comment on the blog below and tell me your best day of the summer so far.  “I saw a good movie,” is a perfectly fine response!  (We’re also checking to make sure the blog still works and goes to subscribers – LOL!). **If you are seeing this blog on GoodReads or Amazon or wherever the blog goes out, you MUST comment in the blog comment section on the Website to enter the contest.  We’ll randomly draw a name in a week (next Friday), so you have plenty of time to enter.  Once we draw a name, we’ll update the blog at the top to let you know.

Those of you still here, how about an update?  🙂

Personally, I had a ball at Comic Con in San Diego and plan to blog a bit about the adventure coming up.  The summer is winding down, the kids are about to go back to school, and we have wild fires kind of surrounding us.  We’re not in any danger (knock on wood), but there are a lot of folks who might be, so keep a good thought.  I’m just writing away and knocking down deadlines.  I’ve also taken up Mah Jongg with my mom, sisters, and friends…and yesterday the gods were not friendly to me.  Very few jokers in my hand all day!  What’s up with that?

On a professional front, a lot of going on!

Storm Gathering releases on September 19th.  It’s the fourth book in the Scorpius Syndrome series, and it has been named an Amazon pick of the month for September!  It features Greyson Storm and Maureen Shadow.  You might remember that Grey kidnapped Moe in Shadow Falling, and let’s just say she isn’t happy about it.  But he’s so sexy…

Wicked Kiss and Wicked Bite hit the USA Today Bestseller list in July and August, respectively.  Thank you so much!  I’m hoping to be able to share some news about the Dark Protector world very soon.  Stay tuned.

In the back of Wicked Bite, there’s an excerpt THE HIDDEN, which is the first book in a new series called The Requisition Force.  The new series will debut in October of 2018.  I’m really excited about it!

Twisted Truths, Book 3 in the Blood Brother series, releases on November 14th, which also happens to be my birthday.  Twisted Truths is about Denver and Noni.  Their romance has been hinted at for the last couple of books, so you might know a bit about them already.  Let’s just say their reunion is a bit explosive.  Okay.  A lot explosive.  This is the final book in the Blood Brothers/Sin Brothers books.  I really hope you enjoy it!

In other news, the Scorpius Syndrome books are now available in audio for those of you who like audio books.  They’re read by the amazing Michael Pauley, and I think he does a fantastic job.  He’s working on Storm Gathering as we speak, so that one would be ready right around release time.  Also, I hired Stella Bloom (she’s awesome and does a bunch of Kristen Ashley’s books) as the narrator for Under the Covers, Rising Assets, and Over the Top from the Maverick Montana series.  Under the Covers and Rising Assets are available now, and Over the Top is being narrated as we speak.  The first book, Against the Wall, is also available in audio.

I hope you had a wonderful summer, and thank you for being here!  Now that the website is all updated, I’m planning on blogging maybe once a week just for fun.  Good luck in the contest!

    We took my daughter for a college visit– 4 1/2 hrs. away. It was just the three of us, and we made it a vacation. It will always be a favorite memory of this summer, even though I wish she would have picked somewhere closer to home. She’s our youngest:(

    Except for a couple of hot days, summer skipped us. We’ve done absolutely bupkis so far this year. My husband’s health hasn’t been good this year. Now our daughter is talking about flights home for Christmas already. I’M NOT READY!! I knew I should have left the tree up. sigh….. My to read list is getting longer and longer. I can’t wait to read STORM GATHERING. I hope Mo kicks some ass. 😉

    I was able to visit my daughter and 3 grandsons who live in another state. It was nice because I don’t get to see them very often 😊

  25. Laura Lovejoy-Brunk says:

  32. Jodie Browder says:

    My best day this summer so far was a Friday (my alternate work day OFF), I woke up at 0600 (very late considering I am at the bus stop at 0550). I made myself breakfast and read for the next three hours, took a break – had myself some lunch and read again. Went to sleep while reading. This is great because I didn’t have any appointments or other things I had to do. I have a 2 hour each way commute to work. It was a wonderful day.

  33. Stephanie says:

    My best of day of Summer was having a complete day out where I got to go and see the movie “The Big Sick.” It was a really good movie and I got to spend some time with a childhood friend I had not seen in a while.

  55. Sophie says:

    My best day of summer was the time when I started reading sin brother series. Cheeky but the truth

  57. Sandra says:

    It’s been a rough summer with my Dad being diagnosed with cancer. Lots of traveling attempting to decide what to do. I will say my best day was when final decision was made and treatment was then scheduled.

  58. Diane Sallans says:

    I’m at the beach with family right now! Long drive from home, but can’t beat a SC beach!

  59. Jeanette B says:

    I took my niece and nephew to an outdoor movie in the park. So fun!

  60. I had to work through out this summer , but the best day of this summer will have to be the Last Saturday of Summer me and a colleague of mine went to a Book Fair. Not only bought a ton of books for my personal library but got to meet a lot of introverts who were tonally in their element, just like me coming out of their shells. NO having fun sorting, labeling ad embossing the book i bought. 🙂

  61. gamistress66 says:

    warm (not hot & muggy) day w/ a nice breeze & sunshine spent relaxing outside on the lounger with a good book and nothing else to do or worry about, just reading, relaxing and enjoying the sounds of the birds, squirrels and breeze with the occasional neighbor kid or dog playing.

  62. Shari Alexander says:

    Working from home — my job changed so I was able to do everything from home, spend more time with my kids and do fun things with them! My oldest is a senior this year so it was great timing!

  63. Shannon VanSach says:

    The best day of my summer was picking my daughter up from her first long camp (10 days!). They were not permitted technology at camp, so the only communication available was old-fashioned letters. It was painful for me…she clearly didn’t have time to write every day and I missed hearing about her every moment and worried CONSTANTLY. Picking her up was both a relief and a wonderful reminder of how much she really does love me and missed me:-)

  64. Barb says:

    Best day this summer was in July when my I took part in my (much awaited) grandson’s birth and then getting my chance to hold him, after mom and dad, of course.

  65. Carla VanZandt says:

    My daughter and I spent a day together at the beach prior to her having surgery that was going to keep her inside for the foreseeable future and me taking care of her until she was back on her feet again. It was such a sweet special day. We talked about everything and anything and sometimes nothing at all. It was absolutely beautiful and I am blessed to have her as my daughter and more so to have her as my friend.

    1. Carla K. VanZandt says:

      Well dang. I should’ve just been patient.

      1. Rebecca Zanetti says:

        Nah – that’s my fault. I usually post a note in the blog that if it’s the first time somebody has commented on the blog, the comment has to be approved, and sometimes it takes a little time. I forgot to post that. 🙂

  66. Carla K. VanZandt says:

    Sorry if this is a repeat. It keeps saying it is, but it’s not posting. So I’m adding to it to see if I can trick it.

  69. Patrice Brown says:

    My best moment this summer was meeting the daughter that I put up for adoption in my teens. We had talked a few times but we finally met. It was so easy to be with her and it was like we had always known each other. She has a son and he is my only grandchild. He is such a nice boy. I am so glad to finally get to know them both.

  70. Lyssa Griffith says:

    Best day was having nothing to do! Which meant I got some quality book time and had a family picnic in the living room floor while watching movies with my kids!

    Slept in on one day! Rare occasion for me!

    I left a comment before but it’s not showing up. My best day was one relaxing all day at the beach!

  81. Shelley Barton says:

    I’ve had so many good days this summer, it’s hard to pick one. Probably attending the Steelers/Colts preseason game at Heinz Field with the hubs. Such an experience!

    FYI: Loved the Dark Protectors series, enjoying the Realm Enforcers series.

  82. Coty Parsons says:

  86. Roxanne Wooten says:

    Covid cost us our summer, so not much to enthuse about except… my husband has become a masterful cook/ chef. He loves gadgets and yes, organizing containers with labels because without the labels, he can’t “find” anything in the pantry! He’s a a gem.

    Hi Chefs Path so this summer was one of those I will never forget , so much planned & then cancelled but of course I made the best of the season !! Living by the beach going almost everyday unless it was raining was something to do considering everything was closed I learned how to make some special treats joined some websites to learn how to bake & create and had my friends & family test all I made !! Got a couple of nice things from you guys like my storage containers & donut bake wear & some piping bags & tips kept my busy & happy now I’m going to be selling some of my products that I make very exciting to be able to find out at age 56 that this is something I love doing even though I always loved cooking food but making my own designs for baking is definitely a passion I never knew I had !! Now to get more backing ware is something I’m working on little at a time & love it so thank you Chefs Path for bringing me to a path I would have never ever would have dreamed of all because everything was closed by me nothing to do & decided to venture out to new beginnings!! Bake on my fellow Chefs

  90. deleree Mclaughlin says:

    Awesome containers. I love how versatile they are and they made organizing so simple

  91. Robin Fay Christina Richardson says:

    The best day of the summer was I got to ho see a movie with my 12 year old son finally. I am a single mom and with the pandemic, I am at home with my grandkids everyday so it was go to get some time with my son.

  92. Sandra says:

    Summer of 2020…🤔 Let’s just pray that 2021 is better!

  93. Hilda Robinson says:

    I have spent the last couple weeks cleaning out closets, cabinets and drawers. Re-organizing my kitchen pantry has been such a delight and a thrill just to see what a difference a little organization can do. I am proud of the results so far l, but it’s still a work in progress. Chefs Path containers are the bomb. Can’t wait to get more.

  94. Venia McMorris says:
