October News

Happy October! It's paranormal month!

Usually I get a lot of requests for book signings and appearances during the month of October. But not this year. I don't know whether to be insulted or relieved. LOL I do have books to write and a looming deadline, so I think I'll go with relieved.

I had two book releases last month. One was a box set and the other that came out a week later was a novel in my latest series Phoenix Brothers. 

More than a Phoenix was named so because there's more than one hero and more than one heroine. My characters were brothers, best friends, and roommates. I couldn't get them to stay out of each other's business, so I just told both of their stories at once. I didn't know how that would be received, so I was anxious to see the first review come in: It was a goody! Here it is, reprinted in full with permission:


REVIEW LINK:

Title: More than a Phoenix
Authors: Ashlyn Chase
Score: 5.00 / 5 - Reviewer Top Pick

REVIEW TEXT:

“Ashlyn Chase gives readers more than a shifter romance with this fantastic paranormal romance. I’ve been waiting to read the latest story from this author and due to her previous successes I had extremely high hopes. My expectations with each book get higher and higher and not only were they reached, they were exceeded. Not only did I get one fabulous love story but I got two in this fantastic adventure.
Brothers Dante and Noah Fierro are more than brothers, they are best friends and roommates. While there are similarities, including the fact that they are both phoenix shifters, Dante is the more easygoing and Noah is a bit of a hot head. The bond between them and the rest of their family is beautiful. It was a little hard to see the two of them not getting along as they both dealt with their feelings for the new women in their lives. Both Mallory Summers and Dr. Kizzy Samuels are fascinating, strong women with extremely complicated issues in their life. Watching them deal with not only their paranormal problems but with the addition of the sexy firefighters was a definite treat.
It was a pleasure catching up with characters from previous stories as they have all made a special place in my heart. This story had it all; mystery, adventure, heat, and heart. I laughed, I cried, I held my breath and I blushed and in the end I was left smiling and waiting for the next magical adventure.
The Story: Supernatural secrets come into play when two firefighter phoenix shifters meet their mates. Dante Fierro had a crush on Mallory Summers in school but he always felt out of her league. She’s been experiencing some strange occurrences lately, including talking to dead people and turning into a monkey at inappropriate times. The only person who doesn’t seem to think she is crazy is Dante. While helping his brother, Noah comes across Dr. Kizzy Samuels and the sparks fly but while the attraction seems to be mutual she’s put a hold on anything. Both Fierro brothers are determined to convince the women in their lives that they can handle the present and long for a future.”

I interviewed the brother/heroes for another blog, and I'd like to share it with you here: The cover is for book one. If you missed that one, it's Hooked on a Phoenix, but the interview is for book two:


Of course, my book made several appearances on blogs with excerpts and giveaways! The kind that stay up for 30 days. In other words, there's still time to enter! 
 






Enjoy your paranormal month! I hope you find something fun (and not just scary) to read.
