December News

Happy Holidays, everyone!
I wish I could say my December is starting out well, but... One of my favorite publishing sites is shutting down. The four Indie books I had published with them were, of course, affected. That meant scrambling to republish four books, all at once, in all sales outlets. Whew! I'm still working on it.

They're back--for the most part. Unfortunately I lost some of those valuable reviews! If anyone would like to read and review one of the following books--for free, let me know. I'd consider it a Christmas present to me!
Laura's Upcycled Life; Thrill of the Chase; Heaving Bosoms; Quivering Thighs.

My assistant Dianne will follow up to be sure you were able to post the review--just let her know how much time you need. I'll give you her contact info when I send the book(s). Please specify Mobi (Kindle) format or Epub format (for Nook and other reading devices.) Use the contact button on my website or email me directly.

Here are the books and sales platforms. You don't have to post a review on all platforms! In fact, Amazon is fine, if you only post it to one place. I simply include the others in case you buy your books elsewhere. I actually get more of my sales from Barnes and Noble, so I buy my books there as a 'Thank you' to them!

I use handy dandy Universal Links! Here's how you can find all of my books and all the sales outlets that carry them at once:
in other words, those 4 books can be found by copying and pasting or clicking on these links:

Thank you for whatever you can do to help!

November News!

Wow! I've been busy! At last I have a moment to update you on the latest news.
First, a new release is coming on Thanksgiving! Laura's Upcycled Life peorder price is only 99 cents! It will go up to $2.99, so don't wait to order it!
Laura McAuliff’s last relationship ended on an all-time low. Her ex-boyfriend, a criminal lawyer, gave her fifty grand to forget she overheard his assassin/client’s confession and vanish before the assassin makes her disappear—like forever.

Now she’s hidden in a tiny house behind a friend’s barn in Maine, upcycling cheap junk into one-of-a-kind treasures to put food on her tiny table. When she finds herself in a tug of war over a set of Mad Men furniture with a stunning blue-eyed asshat, they reluctantly split up the finds.

But Trace Dixon is more than a sexy furniture flipper. He’s an ex-military badass, and when he learns who she’s hiding from he’s intent on protecting her. He offers his address to keep her whereabouts a secret when she testifies. All she needs to do is leave a toothbrush at his place. His offer is tempting, but what if he wants more than her toothbrush—and the bad guys show up?
And in other sale news: Congrats to my Candian publisher!
"It's official we are celebration our 12th anniversary & discounting all #ebooks to $0.99. Come & celebrate with us" Of course this includes my Love Spells Gone Wrong series!
Now--another preorder! This is the first in a new series, so you won't want to miss it! If you read Boston Dragons, you met the Fierros--a legendary firefighting family. It turns out that's not all that's legendary about them. They are phoenixes! If the worst happens, they'll reincarnate in the fire. Find you favorite online store here: HookedonaPhoenix


Misty Carlisle works as a bank teller in Boston's financial district. She's had more rotten luck in her life than most, except when her childhood crush shows up to cash his paycheck. Then her heart races and her mouth goes dry.
Gabe Fierro is a firefighter—and a phoenix. Like his brothers, his biggest challenge is finding a woman open-minded enough to accept a shapeshifter into her life. When his boyhood friend asks him to watch over his little sister Misty, he reluctantly agrees. But when the bank where she works gets held up, Gabe does everything he can to protect her. The two of them end up locked in the bank's vault...where things get steamier than either of them ever imagined.
Readers love Ashlyn Chase's Boston Dragons:
"This story has it all, laughter, tears, magic and sizzling heat."—Night Owl Reviews, 5 Stars, Top Pick!
"Snarky dialogue and sizzling heat."—Booklist

Okay, enough bragging. I'm just thankful I have lots of good news to share this month! Happy thanksgiving, everyone! I have so much to be grateful for!

Sept. News

Oh, boy. I was locked out of my blogger account. (I got error messages that said I didn't have one!) I have four. LOL. Anyway, I'm all set now.

Sorry about September getting away from me like that. I've been head-down, trying to make it for a deadline on 9/30. Between that and the Fall in Love with New England conference, I didn't have much time to do any blogging anyway!

I expect October will be more noteworthy! Stay tuned!

August News!

August is shaping up to be such a crazy month that I'm posting a day early. Otherwise I'll fly off to the RTC conference in Canada and as soon as I relax, I'll slap myself upside the head and yell, "Doh! I forgot to update my blog!" I don't want to alarm other passengers on the plane, so...

First things first: I have a new release! YAY! Book 3 in the Boston Dragons Series, Never Dare a Dragon is on shelves at your favorite bookstore now. If you preordered online, check your inbox! It's there! I love this book. Jayce is so fun, sexy and charming...
and Kristine is our dragon. Yup. A female dragon--just what our Boston Dragons have been searching for! Only, Jayce isn't a dragon. He's a phoenix. Both make great firefighters. Dragons, because they can't die in a fire, and phoenixes because, if they do, they'll rise from the ashes.

Here's an early review!

 Score: 5.00 / 5 - Reviewer Top Pick

 Ashlyn Chase absolutely lights it up with hot and hilarious romance. Jayce Fierro is a fun loving, firefighting, committed to his family man, what more could any woman want in a hero. Add in the fact that he's an honest to goodness phoenix shifter. Kristine Scott is a dedicated and determined dragon shifter. I love strong heroines, women who don't need men in their lives to save them but are looking for a partner. Seeing how much of an impression these two make upon each other in such an unlikely first meeting was an absolute treat to witness. I couldn't help but laugh out loud at Jayce's over the top flirty and how quickly Kristine joined in. I knew this couple wasn't going to let a few obstacles and some geography get in the way of a possible relationship and I couldn't stop turning pages to see just how they would find their way. It's no secret that I'm a fan of this author and of this particular series. I loved catching up with some old friends and making some new ones. I honestly can't seem to get enough of the world she has created and the quirky inhabitants that live there. It's been a few days since I've finished reading this story and I still find myself thinking about it and smiling. If you are a fan of light paranormal this one is a must read. I'm already looking forward to whatever story she comes up with next.
The Story: Kristine Scott has never depended on anyone it has always been her and her mother against the world. However when her mother is kidnapped Kristine must use her dragon shifter abilities in ways she hates and she finds herself getting help from a man she's just getting to know. Can Jayce's shifter abilities help her get her mother back and can these two find a way to be together?

 Happy reading,

Yes, I'll be in Ottawa at the Romancing the Capitol conference 8/3 to 8/6.  It looks to be another wonderful event with readers and authors getting together to have tons of fun! I'll be giving 4 workshops! One is 'Where Do Authors Get Their (Crazy) Ideas?' and another on picking pen names with numerology, called Your Lucky Digits. And I'll also be on a Humor panel--or as the Canadians call it Humour, and finally, I'll also be on a panel of dragon authors! 

Now, I love Eve Langlais. She's the brains behind the above conference. I had such a great time at the first one, I stole (I mean, borrowed!) many of her ideas to incorporate into our Fall in Love with New England Romance Reader/Author conference.
Register soon! You don't want to be left out! Readers easily win back their conference fee with all the free books, baskets, centerpieces, giveaways, trick-or-treats, and Yankee toss up! And there's no putting a price on the forever friendships that come out of these get togethers!

So, that's the tip of the iceberg. I have a deadline for a book in the new Phoenix Brothers series (starting this winter) so I'd better get writing!
