Straightening Up the House

Well, so to speak.

There's been a whirlwind of activity here at the website, and I thought I'd remind you of all that's going on.

Check out the Spotlight page. There are two interviews with two awesome writers, Chris Stevenson and Celina Summers. Both have great books you can buy -- I know you'll enjoy them.

Celina also has some awesome news. Her novella, "Bride of Death", which is the first book of her Mythos series, just cracked the top fifty on the Fictionwise bestseller list! Here's the blurb, and, blurb or no, I can promise you a well-researched, interesting, sexy and exciting read:

When the mischievous god of love targets Hades, the god of death falls hopelessly in love with the spring maiden Persephone, the one immortal most ill-suited for his dark domain. Her mother Demeter will never allow the Lord of the Underworld to court her beloved daughter. The king of the gods proposes an unconventional solution: Hades may kidnap Persephone and take her to the Underworld to woo her. If Persephone agrees to marry Hades, Zeus will support the match.

But neither god has reckoned on Demeter's inconsolable grief at the loss of her daughter. If Persephone is not returned to her, the goddess has vowed to destroy all life. Can Hades win Persephone's heart before her mother discovers who has taken her? Or will Persephone make her own wishes known as the intended bride of death? Even in the world of immortals, time is not on Hades' side.

What else is going on? Well, check out my Datebook for upcoming events, and scroll through the Blah, Blah, Blah blog to catch where I've guest blogged, been interviewed, and find early reviews of "Touched by an Alien".

Is there more? Of course there's more! Don't miss out on my first contest -- head over to Win Stuff and see what's going on and get your entries in! Remember, the contest deadline is Thursday, April 1 for regular web fans...but it's Sunday, April 4 for Hook Me Up! subscribers.

Seriously, you're not on Hook Me Up! yet? Why not? It's how you hear the Gini news first and fastest, how you get extra clues for contests, have Hook Me Up! only events, and much, much more. It's free and easy to join. Just send an email to with Hook Me Up! in the subject line and, whomp, there it is, you're on the list.

More coming, including the release of "Touched by an Alien", some news on "Alien Tango" (coming in December 2010), and the contest winners. I know, I know! How, truly, can you not stay glued to the screen?

I hope you don't mind but I didn't know about your release day and I picked up Touched by an Alien Saturday. I just had a chance to read it and ADORED it. Seriously, I could not put it down. I am relieved to know (now) that there will be another book out late this year! Thanks for the fabulous read!

Wow, Brandy, I don't mind AT ALL! I'm discovering that the book is out in a lot of different places, but not out everywhere yet, so it's sort of a race to see who's getting it first.

Thanks so much for the kudos -- they mean the world to me! And I promise "Alien Tango" will be more of the same.

Alien Tango is better.

I'd say why, but that could be a spoiler. So I won't.


Alien Tango is better.

Just sayin'.

You know...I don't know whether to trumpet that pre-review all over, let it lie there in wait, or just say that I know exactly why you like Alien Tango better...and it made the cover...:-D
