May news

I'm a day late, because I just came back from my dream vacation (a 2 week Mediterranean cruise) and had piles of laundry, plus grocery shopping to do. I hit the sack last night exhausted, but still smiling.  :)

There is a new release coming in May... Just You and Me is a boxed set of 15 hot contemporary romances by award-winning and best selling authors for (are you ready?) 99 cents!

It won't come out until the end of the month, but you can pre-order it on Amazon now. Just You and Me, Contemporary-Romance-Collection

When it's released I will remind you in my newsletter--plus, as usual, I will hold a contest for two prizes (one of which I bought on my European cruise!) 
Please sign up for my newsletter on my home page http://www.ashlynchase.com and you won't miss the announcement! I only send a newsletter when I have a new release, and I won't clog your inbox. I promise!

Also, I'd like to remind readers to check out the Fall in Love with New England Romance Reader/Author Conference. We're taking registrations now. Don't wait, because space is limited!
http://www.fallinlovewithnewengland.com  It's the only conference for romance readers and authors in New England, and it takes place smack-dab in the middle of foliage season!

April News

April 4th is the big day here in Ashlynland.
Lots of new books for you!

From Decadent Publishing we have Guardian of the Angels. About a City man and a country woman, with a touch of magic.
It's already available for preorders here: https://books2read.com/GuardianoftheAngels/

And then there are the rereleases...I rewrote and combined them into this one-author anthology called Thrill of the Chase. Now you can have three for the price of one! Win-win-win!
The three-book anthology is in Kindle Select (an exclusive three month offering) at the moment.
But you can still order either the Kindle ebook or paperback from Amazon when it's released in April. It will be available everywhere after its 3 month exclusive. 
Here's the universal link http://www.books2read.com/ThrilloftheChase

So, is that all? No! Vampire Vintage is "going wide." Meaning, that it was in the same 3 month exclusive Kindle select program, and now it's time is up! So it will be available at B&N, Kobo, Apple iBooks, etc. 
It's confusing isn't it?
Here, I'll make it easy. Buy Guardian of the Angels ebook now.

If you have a Kindle ereader, you can pick up any or all my books from my Amazon page, here: https://www.amazon.com/Ashlyn-Chase/e/B002BOJ4FK/ref=la_B002BOJ4FK_ntt_srch_lnk_24?qid=1491150487&sr=1-24

If you don't use a Kindle ereader, you can get paperbacks of Thrill of the Chase or Vampire Vintage from either Amazon or Createspace. http://www.createspace.com

Do you use a nook? I love mine too. There are plenty of my books at Barnes and Noble.

However and wherever you buy your books, you'll find me there. Just put my name in the search bar.

March News

Hi there!
I'm posting early, because I won't be available on March 1st. I'll be on a Caribbean cruise!  Before you get all jealous, this is a working vacation. My agency is putting together this opportunity to network with editors, producers, agents, and fellow authors. I'm super excited!

I'll be pitching a couple of super cool ideas to the pros, and I'll be on a panel speaking about my path to publication. I just hope I can leave enough time for my fellow authors to speak. It was a long and winding road!

Just two other things I'd like to mention... The Fall in Love with New England Reader/Author conference is open for registration! A 2016 attendee said, "This is the most fun I've had all year!"

It's a terrific bargain anyway, but if you happen to attend The Romance Reviews 6th anniversary party, you could win a $30 reader discount! In other words, 2 days of workshops and activities, all your meals, socializing with 50 fantastic authors--and with $30 off the already ridiculously inexpensive cost of $89, it will only cost you $59. Yup. And with all the giveaways and prizes, you'll make that back and more. You can't afford to stay home! LOL

There's a link to the party right on my website's home page. www.ashlynchase.com

That's all the news I have for now. Be sure to sign up for my newsletter on my homepage while you're there. It's 100% opt-in. In other words, you won't be signed up for my newsletter unless you want to be!

February news

Happy Romance month!
I have so much going on this month! First, a deadline! (Ack!) Or as I call it, a dreadline. It's okay. I think I'm going to make it. I'm probably going to make it. Okay--I'll think positive, I am definitely going to make it! First in the new series, The Phoenix Brothers (Gabe) is almost done. This was a tough one. Remind me not to write a 'strong silent type' again for a while. Writing dialog for a guy like that is challenging! But as much work as he was, I wound up loving Gabe dearly. I hope you will too.

The other big thing happening this month is a Caribbean cruise with my agent and agency mates. They're inviting editors and producers, and I'll be pitching to one (or more) of them. Wish me luck!

I hope you enjoy the video I made to give you a peek into my latest release! Happy February!!

January News

Happy New year! Wow! What a month this is shaping up to be...
Mr. Amazing and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary 12/31 and 1/1. We got married exactly at midnight, so we celebrate both days. ;)

In book news...there's a lot! 
All my Ellora's Cave books are mine again. Meaning, I own the rights. The publisher went under, so I'll either have to sell them to another publisher or Indie publish them.
I still love those books and want to make them available to you! My agent is trying to sell one to a traditional publisher for me, and I've decided to Indie publish the rest.

Here's the plan: As of 1/3/17 two books will be available.
First...A bargain! 3 stories (previously sold individually) in one volume! Immortally Yours can be found anywhere you buy books for $2.99. Be sure to look for this pretty new cover. Paperbacks can be ordered here: https://www.createspace.com/6815159
Descriptions and details are available wherever you buy your books.

And...the ever popular Vampire Vintage is with Kindle Select. (Meaning, you can only get the ebook version at Amazon for 3 months.) All other venues will have it in April, 2017.
Check out this adorable cover by the talented Amanda Walker!

Both books are available in print from Createspace.com Just click this link: https://www.createspace.com/6816759  for Vampire Vintage and it will bring you right there!

In person booksigning Sunday, Jan 29th, 2 - 4 p.m.
65 James Street, Worcester, MA. 

And online: I'll be blogging at
Casablancaauthors.blogspot.com 1/23/17 
That's What I'm Talking About on 1/24/17 here: http://twimom227.com/ 

Well, between all that and the holidays, I'm waaay behind on my work in progress. Gotta go write, right now!

December News

Wow! How did Dec 1st get past me for so long? Ah! The Holiday's, that's why. I hope you're enjoying the season and aren't stressing out too much.

I've been busy! Not only am I writing more new books, but I'm rewriting and will be rereleasing some old favorites soon!

Jan 3rd will see two of those books--and one of those books contains three related stories!
First, let's talk about my all-time best-selling erotic romance, Vampire Vintage. I just uploaded it and barring any glitches, it will be available on Jan. 3rd. Check out the gorgeous new cover flat made by the talented Amanda Walker!

Next, also on January 3rd, you'll have access to those three related stories I mentioned. Life by Lizette, Death by Delilah, and Giggles by Gabby are all going into one novel sized edition called Immortally Yours. Here's that cover, done by the much less talented me.
Perhaps I'll have Amanda redo it. I'm new to Indie publishing and taking baby steps. I'd love to know what you think? Spend the money and go to a professional? Or handle my own cover when I can?
Appearances this month... Dec 12 at 8 p.m. Eastern time, I'll be chatting at night Owl Reviews. They've always been very kind to me in reviews, so how could I say no? I hope you'll RSVP and be eligible for prizes.
Reader RSVP Link: 

RSVP Benefits:
* The RSVP gives your reader’s entry into the evening’s prizes (must be an active chatter at the event)
* A reminder emails before the event starts.
I don't know about you, but I need reminders these days! It's so easy to space something important.

Other than that, I just have the usual holiday family hoopla. I'm very lucky to like everyone of my family members and look forward to seeing them. I hope you have an awesome holiday too!

November News

It's Novembuuurrrrrr...
Yup. It's getting colder, and that means more time to sit by the fire and read! Or maybe it does for you. For me? Not so much. I've got a ton of stuff going on.

First let me just say the New England reader/author conference in mid October was fantastic! SO many readers and authors had a wonderful time and are already looking forward to next year. As am I. So, planning has already begun. Our permanent website is under construction. The conference committee is fine-tuning and incorporating the little improvements we learned from this year. And soon, registration will open!
Where can you get up to the minute news? Try our facebook page https://www.facebook.com/groups/973500356041070/  or if you can't find the answer to your question there, email me: ash@ashlynchase.com.

So, what am I doing other than that? I'm writing! Book 1 in the new Phoenix Brother's series is coming along. And at the same time, I'm editing the last book in the Boston Dragon's series. Never Dare a Dragon comes out this summer, but I need to have the last drop of polish on it by November 28th.

So, is that all? Working on 2 series at the same time? Um...nope.
I got the rights back to all of my Ellora's Cave books. A dozen in all. I'm still proud of those books and I want them to be available. So...I'm sending a couple out to interested publishers, asking my agent to shop a couple, and I'm trying to learn this friggin' thing called self-publishing to reformat and republish the others under my own imprint, Imagination Unlimited LLC. I'm so clueless there's going to be a steeeep learning curve! LOL

Oh! And guess what? I have a new assistant! (Thank goodness!!!) Welcome Dianne Donovan!
So, with that update, I'll leave you and flit off to one of my many simultaneous projects.
