June News

Well, our home in NH is no longer ours. It was hard to let go, but meeting the wonderful family who bought it and knowing how excited they were to have it helped tremendously. Now we are really Florida residents. June looks like a much less crazy month than May was.

Now (drumroll...) the cover reveal of my book coming out November 26th. The Goddess Gets her Guy. (If you've read any of my books from the Flirting with Fangs series on, you'll know The Goddess Gaia (Mother nature herself!) needs a friend. This is my silver fox hero! A surgeon who has to find another purpose in life when diagnosed with a career ending inherited condition (Essential Tremors.)
Now...apologies to my newsletter subscribers! I didn't follow directions, and advertised a sale ahead of the actual date. Therefore I've been kicked out of that sale! Instead, I'll offer all of you--my blog readers, facebook followers, Instagrammers and those who subscribe to my newsletter ALL of my Indie new and republished books for 99 cents each, regardless of length. This is only limited to the first 500 downloads up to the end of June. Get all eformats at once here: http://payhip.com/ImaginationUnlimited


On the writer's life front, while at Book Lovers Con, I met a couple of writers who live in my area! We're planning to get together for lunch and fellowship. The writer's life can get very isolated, only socializing with the voices in our heads all day. LOL But as another writer friend said, "Put a bunch of authors in a box of rocks, and a good time will be had by all!" So true!

I also have my first booksigning in my condo building on June 29th. I booked the owners' lounge and will invite the visitors who are renting here to join us from 3 until 5 p.m. Wish me luck. I will have many of my books on hand. Let's take a quick look at just some of them...

In addition, I'll have Vampire Vintage and Tiger's Night Out (books 1 and 2 of the Be Careful What You Summon series)
The duo, Heaving Bosoms and Quivering Thighs
All 3 books in the Love Spells Gone Wrong series
All 3 books in the Flirting with Fangs series
All 3 books in The Phoenix Brothers series
as well as some stand alones like Love Cuffs, and Gods Gone Wild.  




May News

The big news this month is Book Lovers Con in New Orleans! I'm one of the lucky featured authors! I will be hosting a fun workshop/game called Cards Against Paranormal. It's just like Cards Against Humanity but with questions and answers about vampires, shapeshifters, fairies, mermaids, witches...you name it. Sounds like fun, right? I'm really looking forward to it!



There are a few other places you can find me. I'll be at the Shooting Stars Gala, sponsored by my agency. If you're a librarian, bookseller, or blogger, I'll be at the Sourcebooks party just for you!
And, of course, I'll be signing my mass market paperbacks at the booksigning on Saturday morning starting at 10 a.m.



Don't forget to ask to borrow my lipstick and I'll give you a cute promo pen, shaped like a tube of lipstick. Very Jane Bond. LOL


The rest of the month will be all about personal stuff. A wedding, our house closing, and visiting friends and family. I hope I can squeeze some writing in there!

April News

Our move to Florida is complete! Almost. We still have a house in NH to sell. I'm not worried. We have an awesome realtor and there's already been an open house with lots of interest and a few follow-up showings. Still it seems surreal to be Florida residents!

So, anyway, onto my April news re: the career front. I don't have a new release, but I'm writing a new book in a new genre under a new pen name! I'm excited to be trying my hand at Young Adult Fantasy. Fun fact... I located an old picture of me as a 16 year-old--the same age as my heroine. Since I'm writing about witches, and I look very witchy here, I'll probably be able to use it!


No website yet. I need some content first! The good news is the first book is just pouring out of me, and I'm having a blast writing it! I love the premise and characters, and that's half the battle. Now I just need to make kids love them too. I think they will.

Now, back to Ashlyn Chase...
My latest release, A Phoenix is Forever (March 26)  is doing well and getting great reviews! There are still blogs and active giveaways out there, so look for them!


Hey, let's have our own giveaway right here! My assistant has my author copies, so she'll be sending the prize winner's book from MA. To enter, just send an email to me saying why you'd like to win a copy--and which season is your favorite for reading. ash@ashlynchase.com

That's all the news for now. I hope you're thawing out up North! Have a beautiful spring, everyone.

March 2019 news

Wow! Is it March already? I've been a little busy for the past few months. We got our condo in Florida ready to move into, and soon--we'll be moving! If that's not enough excitement, I have a new book coming out on March 26th...while I'm up to my neck in boxes!
Fortunately, it will be in all your Barnes and Nobles, Books-a-Millions, Walmarts, etc. And, of course any online outlet you prefer will have it too. I'm talking about the third and final book in the Phoenix Brothers series!
SO, let me tell you more about the series. The Fierro Brothers are actually a family you've met if you read my Boston Dragons series. 



My Wild Irish Dragon told the story of two firefighters fighting over the same job opening. Chloe Arish (a dragon) went up against Ryan Fierro (a phoenix) of the legendary firefighting Fierro family. Ryan thought he was a shoe-in until he met the feisty Irish lass.

The next Fierro brother to meet his match was Jayce. In Never Dare a Dragon he fell hard for the New York Hell's Kitchen firefighter Kristine Scott (also a dragon.) After the dragons' stories were told, readers had fallen in love with the Boston Firefighters who could reincarnate in fire. That's when my publisher contracted the rest of the books to be sure mama Gabriella got her wish--to see all of her sons happily paired before she would agree to leave Boston for the Caribbean retirement her husband had been dreaming of.

Hooked on a Phoenix, Book 1 in the Phoenix Brothers series is actually about the middle Fierro son, Gabe and his best friend's little sister, Misty Carlisle. Unaware of what a beauty Misty would grow up to be, Gabe agreed to watch over her while Parker was deployed overseas. Big mistake. How could he keep his hands off of her when she clearly wanted his hands on her hot body?

Book 2, More than a Phoenix is literally about more than one Fierro brother. Dante and Noah Fierro are best friends, roommates, and work in neighboring firehouses. How was I supposed to keep one out of the other's business? It wasn't possible, which created some friction and some fun. Enter two women with their own little problems...artist Mallory Summers who sees dead people and accidentally shifts into a monkey when she's scared and ER Doc Kizzy Samuels, a witch. Yes, Noah's got himself a witch-doctor. All of these stories are light-hearted paranormal romances. 

Now...book 3. A Phoenix is Forever. 

Well, I'd say I blew it because Luca, my youngest Fierro was bound and determined to become a cop instead of a firefighter--much to the annoyance of his firefighter father and brothers, but he was doing an admirable job. That is, until his neighbor's four-year-old daughter went missing. It wasn't his case and he was told to stay away from it, but he couldn't stand by and do nothing. 

So what does he do? He comes upon a psychic, who faints at the sight of blood. Dawn Forest doesn't seem the least bit credible until she proves what she can do. Now despite the fact that an ex-gang girl and a rookie cop shouldn't even be seen talking together, the little girl needs their help and they both step up to do whatever it takes. 

I'll admit this book wasn't as humorous as the rest--mostly because of the subject matter. A missing child is never funny. I had to resort to the veteran cops pranking the rookie for some of the humor. I'm happy to tell you all those stories--are true! I spoke to a few cops, each of which contributed some of the pranks they'd pulled on first year officers over the years. Of course, Antonio, the Fierro patriarch could be counted on for a good dose of comic relief too. 

I hope you'll give the series a read and let me know what you think. If you want to write a review, that would be great--or if you prefer, just tell your friends who enjoy a good romantic read!

Thanks for enjoying my books and I hope you love this big, fun loving, Boston-Italian, phoenix family as much as I do!

February News

I hope everyone is staying warm! I have a new book to tell you about, releasing Feb 1st! Not only is this a whole new novel, but included is a free novella at the end. It's not a  teaser to get you to buy another book in the series...it's a stand alone short you're bound to like if you enjoy my wacky humor. Just a little gift from me to you.

Tiger's Night Out is the long awaited sequel to Vampire Vintage in the Be Careful What you Summon series. Book 1, Vampire Vintage will be on sale a few days before and after this new release.

Thirty nine year-old English teacher Haley Hunnicutt is tired of losing out on love to younger women, and she’s not alone. One night she and three single friends perform a magical summoning of immortal lovers—guys who will appreciate mature women.

Jamir and his brother are shapeshifting Bengal tigers. Tasked by the god Vishnu, they have been guarding a sacred temple for three hundred years. 

When Haley has a vision in her dirty dishwater, she sees her immortal and he sees her. But she doubts a guy in a loin cloth has an easy way to get to New York. So, a trip to India is necessary—or insane.
There’s only one way to find out…



Also this month, on Feb 9th from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. I'll be doing an event at a new bookstore in Manchester, NH called The Bookery
Three authors and friends, who all write romance in different subgenres, will read from their works and sign their latest releases. Come and meet Marianne Rice, Peggy Jaeger, and me! There's a cafĂ© where you can treat yourselves to a little afternoon snack before or after you browse the shelves. 

Then it's back to shipping boxes and trips to Goodwill for me! 

By the way... Don't forget to register for the Fall in Love with New England Romance Reader/Author conference. October seems like a long way off, but spots are filling up fast! We have 50 authors and from here on those who register are going on a waiting list. Hurry before that list grows a mile long!
It's going to be a blast! There's a full size ship where we'll be having our meals and entertainment.

Half our reader spots are gone, so don't dawdle either! Readers only pay $89, which covers their meals, snacks, and activities for two days, plus they get loads of great free stuff! Fall in Love with New England
