Damaged Re-Released

So I mentioned ohhh about two months ago, that I was going to take Damaged down because it was in serious need of an editor.

I was fortunate enough to meet Sammie, who started off as a helper for the Violet Hour Book Reviews, and when I offered her a chance to read Damaged she jumped at it. 😉 maybe I am being a little over-zealous but I like to believe she was jumping up and down about it. I was 😉 anyways, she, the lovely peach that she is offered up to be my editor. And *coughPAcough* <- yup PA as well ^.^ so she just helps spread my “awesome-ness” to the world. with her own awesome flare.

So Sammie was wonderful, did a wonderful job, and then we had to do formatting again. My lovely formatter not only was swamped, but had personal things going on, so bless her, she is a doll and squeezed me in. Everything was ready to go, and all the while I was also working on getting a Box Set called Dangerous Lovers with some kickass authors. Which released about a week or so ago. ^.^ YAY. NOTE: it is A KINDLE BOX SET. there aren’t new stories in there sorry.

Anyways! ON TOP OF ALL THIS NESS GOING ON, I have been working on getting Healed (book two) out to my lovely betas, and forcing it down their throats before I get to force it down all your’s. So anyways Healed is written, is completed, in a sense. Its gone through one beta edit already, and I sent out the newest copy, and blah blah blahs. So Healed is coming along nicely. Does that mean I have information for you on it’s release?

Hmmm….yes and no. Here is my dilemma, as much as I wanna say, it will be out in two months, I mean why not right? Well to those who have finished the original/new copy of Damaged, thank you so much, and I love it! But Damaged had a bumpy start, and some things got a little skimped on the first time around. But also I started writing Healed at the end of November. So it took me about three months to write. That was just to write. Quite frankly I don’t want to be labelled right off the bat as an author that can push out a book every two months, I don’t know how these amazing ladies do it, but O.O eep!

That is one reason, second reason: I got some AMAZING, AMAZING NEWS. The wonderful Carlyle Labuschagne did this crazy Giveaway for a featured spot at her table, at UtopYA if you aren’t sure what that is, its one of the biggest growing Book Cons out there. It was a huge hit last year and I was INSANELY jealous of everyone that got to go, just in generals. If I could have, I would have been there. But I was in Chicago as it so happens that exact weekend XD. ANYWAYS! So this insane giveaway…guess who won, no seriously guess. ==> Yeah me. Somehow?!

This is an AMAZING opportunity. BUT, here is a little somethin’ somethin’ I love to hate to admit. I am not rich O.O WHAT?! I know, CRAY CRAY. So we have established I am not rich. Damaged has been off the market for two months after being on for about two weeks or so. I wasn’t doing horrible, in fact I was quite proud of my baby. Anyways the point was, I know a lot of authors have given me advice (and friends) to use my earnings from Damaged as my “book fund money” yeah… I don’t have “fund” for that really. Anyways POINT IS THIS:

So I spent a weekend hidden under my covers debating. UtopYA this is HUGE? How can I say no? So I didn’t. And I have been working on getting my own little stash of swag which now I am considering calling SOS HAHAHAHAHA its funny because I’m poor.

So now that I am working on my SOS, I am working at trying to get myself integrated back into the published world. I feel like I was a bit of a break during the time Damaged went down to about two weeks ago when I realized Damaged could go back into the world. Scary, but more thrilling thought as now I had a 1000 times for confidence in it because of all the amazing work Sammie did for me.

Third Reason I don’t have a date for you: Book Three is being a huge pain in my A$$, here is the thing. I am a mixture of a pantsier (am I spelling this right?) writer, and a planner. I get bullet points in my head, and I try to connect the dots as it were. So we meet a new character (quite a few actually) in book two which one of them will be having her own book. She is the character that is calling to me. Her story is almost next to crystal clear in my head… Nixie’s story, and I love her, I do. Is there but its murky. Its like I can see everything after the halfway point, but getting there? Not so much. That isn’t to say that I am going to release new mysterious character book first but I do have a way that i can do it. I can rework the series easily to fit the character’s stories as the way I want them.

BUT

oh yes there is always a BUT

I wanted to write a prequel. A prequel that I think might not be for everyone. And truthfully? I am okay with that. It is a story that I want to tell, that I think needs to be told. It would most likely be a NOVELLA. Which i am currently working on. I believe this will be the next thing to be released after Healed. so I know what you are thinking, pffft Becca then you have plenty of time to figure out Nixie’s book don’t leave us in the dust yo. Well here is the thing my fine speaking friends, you know how I did that epilogue, who was in someone’s POV I need to figure that out for book two before I release it, so it have to decide before then. So there is that.

Now that I am done running my fingers (aka mouth)

DAMAGED IS OUT AGAIN. I am so proud to say that I am feeling pretty good about it. Still waiting on reviews to start flowing in 😉 but that comes with time.

There will be more news about Healed, the cover is finished. I have been sitting on it for about a month now and I KNEW the moment I revealed this info I would be chomping at the bit to do a reveal, it will PROBABLY be happening middle/late April. So I know what you are thinking now: Becca you are going to tease us with the cover, but not the book WHAT DA FUDGE? Well UtopYA is happening in June that is A HUGE HUGE HUGE reason I am not considering June as a release month for Healed. Not only will I be stressed enough as it is, I know readers, they will be saving their cash monies for UtopYA … I don’t blame them I am too.

I encourage you all who have bought a copy that if you loved it, liked it, thought it was meh, or unfortunately you found that Damaged and me weren’t for you, that you leave a review. Of course I would hope if it wasn’t for you, that you be respectful in a review, but I wanna know what I can improve upon.

I don’t know what else there is to say other than thank you ❤

Thank you to all the amazing peoples who have supported me and helped me and those who are still to come ❤

When her home is attacked by murderous vampires, 17-year-old Alexa is forced to leave her mother for dead in order to save her sister.

Meanwhile, Alexa battles a monster within herself that seeks to gain control; a monster that seeks blood.

The hidden city she finds herself in appears perfect, but Alexa’s instincts tell her that all is not right within its walls. When she is asked to attend a school of fighters, whose exams consist of gladiator-style competitions, she must decide who she can trust among the smiling faces.

Synopsis:

Unfathomable forces have always contested Genevieve Indiana Falcon, known as Indie. The curse of her cold touch entraps her just as the grief ignited in her past torments her. Yet, her mysterious ability to dream while awake saturates her in the belief that she was not always anguished. There is hope that one day a true peace in her soul can be found.

Foolishly, Indie assumes she has contained her life in an odd balance, and she cherishes the visions she sees of the enigmatic boy that held her in a lost time, but can never reach. She grieves for a life she fears she’ll never possess, and that grief is a weapon she uses against her aunt who stands between her and her inheritance.

Weeks away from her twenty-first birthday, the date where she would assume control over her family legacy, a night terror robs Indie of the balance she was clinging to. Like the dream she had before she lost her family, it predicts a fatal catastrophe on the horizon. The fight between life and death, good and evil, began the moment her thundering heart awoke her.

Everything changed after that dream. The one thing that keeps her curse at bay is stolen, and then the enigmatic boy arrives in the flesh. Face to face with her fiery born-again lover Indie realizes that the only way she can prevent the tragedy before her is to surrender everything she was, is, and could be.

Can she bend the laws of nature and fight the improbability that fire and ice could ever be one? As far as Indie is concerned, there is not a myth, spoken fate, or curse that is stronger than her stubborn desire to have it all … including him.

The Rivulet series can be read on its own or as #11 in the Web of Hearts and Souls Series.

About the Author:

Jamie Magee has always believed that each of us have a defining gift that sets us apart from the rest of the world, she has always envied those who have known from their first breath what their gift was. Not knowing hers, she began a career in the fast paced world of business. Raising a young family, and competing to rise higher in that field would drive some to the point of insanity, but she always found a moment of escape in a passing daydream. Her imagination would take her to places she’d never been, introduce her to people she’s never known. Insight, her debuting novel, is a result of that powerful imagination. Today, she is grateful that not knowing what defined her, led her on a path of discovery that would always be a part of her.

About the Author:

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn’t do something soon, it would quickly be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So, she rolled down the passenger window of her fabulous (not) company car and tossed out her leather briefcase. Luckily, the pedestrian in the direct line of fire was a dodge ball pro and had über quick reflexes enabling him to avoid getting bashed in the head. Feeling a tad guilty about the near miss, A. M. made a speedy turn down a deserted side street before tossing her crummy, outdated piece-of-you-know-what lap top out the window. She breathed a liberating sigh of relief, picked up her cell phone, called her boss and quit her job. Grinning, she made another call to her hubs and told him of her new adventure (after making sure his heart was beating properly again).

So began A. M. Hargrove’s career as a YA/NA and Adult Romance writer. Her books include Kissing Fire, Edge of Disaster, Shattered Edge, the series the Guardians of Vesturon (Survival, Resurrection, Determinant, Beginnings and reEmergent), Dark Waltz, Tragically Flawed, Tragic Desires and Exquisite Betrayal.

Other than being in love with being in love, she loves chocolate, ice cream and coffee and is positive they should be added as part of the USDA food groups.

(If you’re wondering, it didn’t happen EXACTLY that way, but….)

About the Author:

Head Reviewer @ The Violet Hour Book Reviews

Oh jeez…do you know how many people I told I didn’t want to write this? So here is the one my friend made me:

Becca Vincenza lives in wonderful Michigan. She has a love for Skittles, rainbows, Star Wars, *giggles* and Hot Men. She spends time in her basement with Airicka… Apparently that’s where the best ideas come from.

Any who….she loves meeting new people, so feel free to message her on Facebook and friend her on Goodreads!

Although her phone number will not be given out because, well…she doesn’t like heavy breathing.

So a sort of serious one: For real, I am a geek. I grew up watching Star Wars, and my father read Lord of the Rings to us, along with the C. S. Lewis series. I love to write. In all honesty, it took me a lot of work to get where I am today and I don’t regret a moment of it. Reading and writing are honestly the best things ever. I couldn’t be happier that my parents put me through so much extra help. Anyways! Me, me, me…. Huh…I love paranormal stuff…Love it.
