Where have I been? *ahem* Around, I promise. And I can prove it! Terribly sorry that I haven't been keeping up-to-date on web appearances, but here's all you could possibly want to know about where Amber promoted in February:
I had the privilege of appearing on fellow Red Rose author Kim Smith's Blog Talk Radio "Introducing Writers". She was nice enough to conduct my first radio interview. After five minutes of intense nausea, I overcame my new medium anxiety and had a lot of fun talking about Fox & Hound, its January print release, and writing in general. Here's a link to the entire 30-minute interview: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/KimS/page/1
You won't believe it, but I buckled down and entered a contest: the Manic Readers "Men in Uniform" contest. Winners of each round get to submit their full manuscript to NAL's Becky Vinter. On a lark, I submitted an excerpt from my historical and it is up officially for voting in Round 2. All entries are anonymous, but *wink* I'm #5. If you'd like to vote, here's the link for the Manic Readers home page, scroll down to "Contests" and hit the "Vote here" button. Log-in is required: http://www.manicreaders.com/. Warning: all entries are STEAMY!!!
Speaking of steamy, Todd and Celestia from Fox & Hound have made a bit of a comeback in a short story entitled "Honeymoon Recon" which has appeared in All Romance eBooks "Wildfire" newsletter. No voting or download required, I promise! If you'd like to visit Todd and Celestia again, the newsletter can be viewed for free at ARe: http://www.allromanceebooks.com/newsletter161-2009-03-08.html. Scroll past the interviews to read "Honeymoon Recon."
And look to the Authors Studio this week for my article on the importance of setting in plotting which will also soon appear on the Media page of my website: http://authorsstudio.blogspot.com/2009/03/locationlocationlocation-guest-blogger.html.
Oh, and I must mention that February 28th marked the one-year anniversary of my debut novel's e-release! Happy birthday, Fox & Hound!!!
