Saints & Sinners: Angela Kulig dishes on The Paranormals Series by J.L.Bryan

I have the honor of talking about some of the best Saints & Sinners in all the paranormal genre today! Seth & Alexander from The Paranormals Series by J.L.Bryan.

Oh, sorry. I keep drooling all over the keyboard.

The first time we met Seth Barrett in Jenny Pox I ignored him. The second time we met Seth Barrett I ignored him. The third time we met him I was convinced he was a brainless asshole. If only I had known! I could have lusted over him properly.

This is Seth, or at least the way BB and many drooling readers see him:

He is sort of an all American Boy. Football player, blond, ridiculously good looking--but he also has a secret, and no matter how many people he could help with his amazing power, he can’t tell anyone. Especially, Jenny Mittens.

Their life together begins one day on the side of the road, with Seth goes a little too far, and reveals a little too much. After that they begin to discover they are linked in ways they couldn’t even imagine.

But Seth, who might have out of this world good looks, is very real. In the Paranormal Series he makes quite a few mistakes, and one of them sends Jenny into the arms of this guy:

Alexander Death. The first thing you need to know about Alexander is, he speaks in really sexy Latin languages. The second thing you need to know about Alexander is, he is unapologetically a sinner. Despite what the Bookish Brunette would have you believe, nothing good can come from raising the dead. All that aside though, I enjoy lusting after this bad boy and I know you will too!

Dying to read about Seth and Alexander death? Pick up Jenny Pox, the first book in The Paranormals Series for FREE on Kindle and enter to win the paperback here!

J.L. Bryan is a guy paranormal romance writer (It is a paranormal romance Jeff!) so that automatically makes him hot! Also he puts up with some of the craziest bitches on the internets--namely myself and Ashley, The Bookish Brunette. He has published a lot of books you need to read. Right now.

The Giveaway Winner is SUPAGIRL congrats, be looking from an email from me!

While the Cat's Away WEEKEND Long Twitter Event

Yes, a whole weekend of giveaways! But you are going to have to tweet to win. Up for grabs are 4 Skeleton Lake ebooks. For Nook, Kindle, or whatever ereader you covet. It's easy to win! Simply chat using the hash tag #thecatsaway in honor of this mouse playing while her publisher is away.

Already have Skeleton Lake? No problem! You can still win. Your options are 1. To gift the book to someone else--simply tell me who you'd like it to go to when you contact me (you will need their email address) or 2. Tell me you'd like to win Pigments of My Imagination instead, and receive your ebook in the beginning of December!


If you recall, I said I had some big personal deadlines this weekend. My goal is to finish my super secret project by 11:59 Sunday night. If I make it someone chatting with us on Twitter will receive an autographed paperback copy of Skeleton Lake and an copy of Pigments of My Imagination when it comes out in paperback in December!  Sort of a one now one later kind of thing.

Get chatting people! I love my readers, and I want to give things away.

Read THIS Before You Do Anything Else

Just some super quick notes!
1) Sara, who owns and mostly operates the publisher I am on, Red Iris Books, is away. So I can do whatever I want. Including being lazy and giving away a ton of ebooks. Not really... about the lazy part anyway. This weekend I have a serious personal writing deadline, so I will be giving away several kindle/nook copies of SKELETON LAKE at will. Please invite all of your friends that haven't read it. All the giveaways will happen on Twitter but I will be blogging times so check it out!

2) Don't forget about the AMAZING contest where you can win 3 hardback copies of some of the best November releases here:
Sweet November Release Prize Pack including: Shatter Me, The Pledge, & Crossed.

3) Did you know in the ebook version of SKELETON LAKE there is a Pigments of My Imagination excerpt? You should read it, because next week I will be asking questions about it, and giving away awesome Pigments prizes!

My Book Launch is CURSED

Oh Well, 3rd Times a Charm GIVEAWAY! I also wanted something big to celebrate hitting 3k on Twitter!

In an effort to quickly reschedule the launch of Breathe and Pigments of My Imagination I made a really huge mistake. The plan was to release it on the 21st and have a Rockin' Twitter Launch Party that Friday...which if I had bothered to look at a calender I would have realized was BLACK FRIDAY.

I had a lot of success with my first Twitter Launch of Skeleton Lake, and I know attempting one on BLACK FRIDAY where people are shopping, traveling, and asleep after waking up a 3am to score some serious deals isn't the best course of action.

After sobbing to my Publisher, Red Iris Books, I was assured it wouldn't KILL me to reschedule it a last time. After talking about it to death, we came up with the date 12/2/11

The world better not end before then!

Anyway on to the giveaway. People actually threatened me when I rescheduled the last time! Since you won't be reading Pigments in November, I figured I'd give away some SWEET November releases to appease the masses.

Here we go! All these books will be coming to you off of Amazon directly, because if you know me, you know that I only hate the post office has much as it hates me! So no wait once the winner sends me their info ;)

Contest ends 11/30!

The dashboard melted, but we still have the radio. Or in this case, the book launch.

Motivational songs for writers come in many forms and even more odd genres. Usually for general motivation purposes in writing; I prefer songs like Eye of the Tiger, and Vampire Money. No matter what your beliefs are about the overuse of the undead, most of us would admit to being OK with the money and fame Stephenie Meyer has achieved.

Everyone else would be lying.

With all the book launch drama, you would think I'd remember I was gearing up for one! Instead I have become almost fixated with other events to keep me from feeling bad about it. But no more! This week I am getting my priorities in order.

The dash board may have melted, but I still have the radio! Which given my love of motivation music, I'd say it's the best possible scenario. And it could have been, should have been worse than you would ever know, but it wasn't. So I should be thankful, and get my butt in gear!
Yay for Modest Mouse, who made my Monday that much more motivational!

Angela Kulig and Mel McCullough Split From the Dark Carma Tour

I've been sitting on this for a few days now, just because I didn't know what to say about it. Mel and I splintered away from the Dark Carma tour. No one yelled, screamed, or kicked us out. We left on our own, and it was the best thing to happen for everyone. It doesn't mean we don't love them, or won't support them--because we will! It just means Mel and I had to do what was best for us. It's always hard when you are dealing with people you care about, but at the end of the day if you have vastly different ideas on how your books should be released, you have to do what you think is right for your work.

Mel and I will be pushing back the release date of our books to 11/21 to further seperate ourselves. It's not as cool looking as 11-11-11; which was even the date that I pushed for, but it's quite symbolic, as I released SKELETON LAKE on 10-21. Our co-launch, and future launches are going to be organized under the name
All the info on that is coming ASAP!
