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!

Now...Appearances:
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?
So--anyway...
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!
HUGE HOLIDAY HUGS!

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.

October news

I'm late posting October's news, because I've been consumed with the conference. Which conference you ask? The Fall in Love with New England Romance Reader/Author Conference!
I'm getting ready for a fabulous weekend Oct. 14 and 15!

You're welcome to attend our big booksigning on Saturday, Oct. 15th from 2-5 p.m. Manchester, NH
Best Western Plus Executive Court Inn. Route 28.

Now some sad news... Ellora's Cave closed its doors this month. My EC books (12 of them!) will not be available again until after Jan 1st. The silver lining (literally) is that I may make some money on these books at last.

August news

I'm SO excited! I have two releases soon. Aug 22 and Sept 6th. 1 Contemporary. 1 paranormal. Both hot comedies!

Why so close together? Because I'm a moron.  Nah, I was just really excited to make Love Cuffs available again! Dalton Diaz and I worked hard to update it and relrelease it via my company Imagination Unlimited. It was great before, and it's even greater now! We love it and hope you will too!

All the links and summaries are on my homepage.

My Wild Irish Dragon was scheduled for preorders by my publisher, and I'm just as excited (if not more) about this brand new book. It's book 2 in the Boston Dragons series!

In this book you'll meet a cool new band of brothers in the Boston paranormal population. A legendary fire fighting family of Phoenixes! (Say that 5 times fast.) 

I lovingly call my Sourcebooks series, the series that never ends. These are available in Mass market paperback on the shelves at Barnes and Noble, etc. when newly released. And they are all still available in eformats as well as paperbacks at all etailers.

For some reason, it's always book 2 that inspires a new spin-off series...
Strange Neighbors was the first book in the first series by the same name. It was Book 2-The Werewolf Upstairs-that inspired the next series Flirting with Fangs. 

Book 2 in the Flirting with Fangs series-How to Date a Dragon-inspired the Boston Dragons series. 

And now, Book 2 My Wild Irish Dragon has inspired the upcoming series The Phoenix Brothers. I just finished the final book in the Boston Dragons series and I'm just starting to write book 1 in the brand new series now.     

I wonder if book 2 will inspire yet another series? LOL. We'll have to wait and see.
