Universal Word of the Covers

Happy Friday! Well, here we are, at the end of the week already. And yet, there's still tons going on that I have to tell you all about before we all race off for the weekend. So, let's roll right to it!

We actually have two stops on the Universal Alien Top 10 Blog Tour today. Well, okay. We really only have one, but I wasn't able to get to yesterday's tour stop on yesterday, so we're getting to it today! Follow that? No? Well then...

First off, head over to Under the Covers where they have the top 10 ways to survive in the Kittyverse. After that, hit Word of the Nerd where they have both the top 10 things you'll never hear Kitty and Company say AND an early review of Universal Alien. Both stops have yet another chance each for you to win a copy of one of the first 9 books in the series, signed and personalized, and open internationally.

There are still more Tour stops to come, and you can still get entered to win at the prior stops as well. Some of the contests are over and some end SOON, so hurry up and get entered to win so you don't miss out!

After getting entered all over to win one of the first books in the series, check out what Lu's Buchgefluster thought of the book that started it all, Touched by an Alien. The review is in German, but for those of you who can't read German, Google translate handles it really well.

Sensational Six: Action and Adventure in Sci Fi, Fantasy, and Paranormal Romance is burning up the charts! Many thanks to all who've grabbed it up already. But for those of you who haven't, seriously, what are you waiting for? It's got 6 great stories of various lengths, from Six Gals and a Guy -- awesome authors Caris Roane, Jordan Summers, Vivi Anna, Sasha White, Marsheila Rockwell and Jeff Mariotte, and moi. My entry is The Night Beat, Necropolis Enforcement Files #1, and right now this boxed set is the only place you can get it. And that's not all. Sensational Six is also the only place where you can get a long excerpt for Night Music, Necropolis Enforcement #2...until it releases in early 2015!

Want to see Night Music's cool cover? Hit my Premieres page and check it out!

And how much does all this awesomeness cost you? $0.99. YES! Less than one dollar! So, really, do your Six Gals and a Guy a solid and grab this while it's at this low, low price.

That's it for today, but as always, more's on the way. The Universal Alien Top 10 Blog Tour is taking next week off because it's Thanksgiving in the U.S. next week and the Casa will be filled with people and I'm still on deadline for Alien Separation and all that jazzy stuff. But I promise some fun stuff early next week before we go to radio silence.

So, everyone have wonderful weekends and let's be Universally Sensational readers out there. Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Love,
Gini

Universally Yapping

Happy Hump Day! The middle of the week is always nice -- the uphill struggle to get to mid-day on Wednesday, and then the lovely downward slide towards the weekend begins. But, as always, we have a lot going on, so let's hump on over to it.

For today's stop on the Universal Alien Top 10 Blog Tour, we have something a little different. Head over to Lu's Buchgefluester where there's a new interview with yours truly. She asks some new questions, too, so don't miss it even if you've read the yap before. As with all the other stops, you can win a copy of any one of the first 9 books in the Alien series, signed and personalized, and open internationally. This is a German blog, but the interview and giveaway portions are in English, so don't give up when you hit the first paragraphs (unless you also read and speak German, which many of the Alien Collective do, in which case, enjoy it all) and keep on down to the interview and contest entry information.

There are still more Tour stops to come, and you can still get entered to win at the prior stops as well. Some of the contests end SOON, so hurry up and get entered to win so you don't miss out!

So remember to be ready to order this great set of six super stories from seven writers (aka Six Gals and a Guy) for the ultra-low price of $0.99! That's right, a ton of great reading for less than a dollar!This boxed set includes my novel, The Night Beat:  Necropolis Enforcement Files #1. AND a long excerpt from Night Music: Necropolis Enforcement Files #2. This set is the ONLY place you're going to get an excerpt until Night Music releases in early 2015! SUCH a deal, you don't want to miss out!

Yesterday I announced that DAW has bought Books 14 & 15 in the Alien series. And I also shared that Book 14, coming December 2016, will be titled Alien Nation. But we hadn't picked the title for Book 15 yet.

Well, we've done so now. Book 15, coming May 2017, will be Aliens Abroad.

And :-D no, you can't pre-order these two yet. But you CAN pre-order Universal Alien (trust me, it may be out soon, but the pre-orders still matter right up to the day before release), and several alert Members of the Alien Collective in Very Good Standing have informed me that they've been able to pre-order Alien Separation this week. So, you know the drill, do your girl a solid and pre-order like crazy...so we can get Books 16, 17, and beyond!

Well, that's it for today, but, trust me, a lot more's on the way. So everyone have wonderful weekends and let's be readers out there! Peace out, my li'l gangstas, and I'll catch you on the flip side!

Love,
