Begin the Adventure! (Contest)
Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

I’m on pins and needles now, waiting until the first readers download the first installment of this adventure. I can’t wait to hear from you! I love the book. It’s a good thing too, because I’m still writing it! I don’t know how it ends. Really!

How does this Kindle Serial thing work? You pay for the book once. Just $1.99 for a full-length novel. You can’t beat that deal. You’ll get installment 1 automatically, and then every two weeks new installments will be sent without you having to do a thing. I think there will be 8 installments total, but I’m not sure because I haven’t thought about where this book is going! :mrgreen:

In the meantime, don’t be shy about leaving reviews along the way. You can let other readers know what your experience was. And you can update your review as the story progresses. I’d appreciate it very much, and other readers will pay more attention to your thoughts than mine.

Also, there’s a special forum set up to talk about the book. I’ll be checking in and answering questions. You can find it here: Amazon forum. There’s a brand new link there, called “Discuss Episode 1 of “Crescent Moon.” I’ll be waiting…

And because I want to entice you into showing up there, I’ll run a special contest, just for my friends here. If you join me at the forum and wiggle your fingers or wink to let me know it’s you, you’ll receive a free download of my anthology Strokes. Maybe you could leave a comment here and tell me your email addy so I’ll have it to mail your free book. Everyone will get a copy—and it’s more expensive at Amazon than Crescent Moon! Now, there’s a deal, right? :)

All that having been said (I’m taking a deep breath now), here’s where you can buy your copy: Crescent Moon Buy Link

Chat later! DD

CrescentMoon_600

From ancient Egypt to present-day New Orleans, a woman of exceptional strength is called to protect against an unspeakable evil…and to experience an unforgettable seduction.

Khepri still isn’t used to being The God’s Wife. The daughter of a common farmer, she’s more comfortable being friends with servants than employing a whole team of them. Being the wife of Amun affords her luxuries she only dreamed of, but her dreams are not always a haven…they are also filled with demons. Lately she’s had doubts about the role she’s been thrust into. She’s had yearnings for another sort of life, one where she’s loved intimately, rather than only adored from afar.

When a powerful man lures her away from her temple, she’s thrilled at the chance for an adventure. Her adventure quickly becomes a nightmare when the handsome vizier mummifies her alive. Pure of heart and body, she’s the warrior he foresees will battle a demonic pharaoh if ever he awakens. Khepri’s sure he’s insane, until she awakens in a distant future. Alone and needing a guide in this strange and garish new world, she turns to the troubled man who set her free…

When New Orleans police detective Justin Henry Boucher is called to the Garden Museum to investigate stolen Egyptian artifacts, it’s not exactly the adrenaline rush he used to get working a homicide. But with a reprimand on his record and a sorrow he can’t shake, he will take what he can get – as long as he can keep his badge. What he doesn’t count on is having to keep his cool when he finds one of the priceless artifacts – a golden-skinned goddess wrapped in fabric like a mummy, left to die and needing his help. She’s a mystery he’s determined to unravel. She might also be the cure for his lonely heart.

    This looks great! I just bought it with the last of my Kindle money. :) Love a witchy read! (I also just received your Smokin’ Hot Firemen from Cleis and can’t wait to start reading!)

    Would love a copy of Strokes! :) My email is erzabetwrites at gmail dot com. (If you need to know the name I bought it under, just send me an email as my kindle account is not under my pen name.)

    Congrats!

    Erzabet Bishop :-P

    Im winking and wiggling for Stokes,I have already started reading Crescent Moon,I had preordered it and for the first two day didn’t even notice it on my kindle *gasp* There are a few authors that are doing this serial thing but being I have so many of your books and know I won’t be diasapointed with it I decided to try just one first,tho now that I think about it I should check and see if Elle did it also.I also put a big postie note next to my computer to check my kindle daily so I don’t forget when the next episode comes out,though I have to go back and click on to the link you gave explaining it tho I understand the basics and so maybe it wil automatically notify me so I can take down my postie note,I have so many now,I need to combine yours,I just counted and there are 7 postie notes for books of yours lol oh don’t want to forget one of the most important things my email–zanarigrandma@gmail.com and I will be one of the ones commenting also to see how this new program works lol oops I should have put my email last so its easier for you to find so here it is again zanarigrandma@gmail.com

    So excited to try this new way of reading a novel, i guess it really is an old way like back in history when stories were serialized in the papers. So looking forward to reading it as you are one of my favorite writers and I adore anything about Ancient Egypt. I hope it’s as hot and spicy as the desert sands!

    Hi Delilah, I just went to the Amazon link now (June 5th, 7:30 am EST)…and I can’t get it. It says”pricing info not available” and because of that, there is no buy link. Could it possibly have something to do with me being from Canada? I wouldn’t think so, since I dont’ have problems with anything else on my Kindle.

    Charlotte, you’re going to be so mad! I found out yesterday that Crescent can only be purchased in installments in the US. You are going to have to wait to read it when the whole book is available for purchase. So sorry!

    Loved what I read, Delilah. I almost got mad when part one ended and I couldn’t read anymore. What a cool adventure, both the serial book and the book itself. Can’t wait for more.
