Ronie Discarded Heroes, Nightshade 4 Comments

Thanks to the incredible genius and hard work of Rel Mollet, NIGHTSHADE is back! After a top-down edit on the previously published version which forced me to rewrite a few scenes (the things you learn in ten years, people…), NIGHTSHADE is back up for sale and better than ever! You can now purchase the digital version on Kindle, Nook, and Kobo! Paperback will soon follow. For those who’ve never met the Discarded Heroes, I hope you’ll start with NIGHTSHADE and journey with the team through anticipated new/updated versions of DIGITALIS, WOLFSBANE, AND FIRETHORN, which will be coming your way, steadily, I hope. For uber loyal Rapid-Fire readers who have the original version but also want this one, too–WOW! You UH-MAZE me!! …

JUNE 1 – 20th Anniversary & 1 month till NIGHTSHADE

Ronie Barbour Publishing, Kimberley Woodhouse, Nightshade 3 Comments

Wow! I’m so excited. Today is June 1st–that means two very awesome things are happening in my life. First…My TWENTIETH anniversary! No kidding. On June 1, 1990 I married the man of my dreams. I knew I had to snag him fast before he figured out the truth (hehe). Brian is a real hero. God has closed many doors to Brian’s dreams (army, architecture, FBI) but he has pressed on. Now, he’s able to speak/read/understand Arabic (not fluently yet). We aren’t sure what God has on the horizon for us, but I am really honored and excited to journey with my amazing man. And…now…second…today means there’s ONE MONTH left until Nightshade releases. YAY! In honor of that, I’d like to …

YOU READY FOR THIS? *GRINS* In one month, Nightshade will release to the unsuspecting public. Until then…you have this to help you prepare. I just received the trailer for NIGHTSHADE. Misty Taggart and her team at TRAILER TO THE STARS did a fabulous job with it, don’t you think? A review: This intense story full of action, is also full of emotion and life. Men dealing with issues they hadn’t planned on. Surprise after surprise and bomb after bomb set this adventurous trail with the reader racing to the end. I found myself crying and smiling and hated it when it ended. ~~Jan Crow, Katy Budget Books, Book Buyer Have you pre-ordered your copy yet?

Just had to share with everyone that Amazon now has the “Look Inside!” feature for Nightshade, Book #1 of the Discarded Heroes releasing July 1st from Barbour Publishing. I was thrilled to find this available today–because along with it came a huge surprise–my back cover! I hadn’t seen it till it was posted there. It’s GORGEOUS!! Barbour has done such an amazing job, and they have constantly impressed me time and again. Also, I was absolutely tickled to find the endorsements on the front and back, as well as the Nightshade symbol so big and crisp. Anyway, take a peek and enjoy the prologue and first chapter: AMAZON Look Inside! Then come back and tell me what you think. With …

This & That – Nightshade!!

In an attempt to catch everyone up (there are gobs of you reading this blog, right?!?!) on what’s happening, I decided to do a quick post. So, here goes. First – The galley of Nightshade is now available through NetGalley. If you are a professional reviewer or a librarian, you can apply to receive a digital copy of the galley. I’m so tickled–I downloaded it onto my Kindle, and it brought me to tears reading Nightshade like a real book (as if it’s fake or something, right?). Hehe. Second – Nightshade can now be preordered through many online retailers. It’s amazing to see this book coming to life and gaining some recognition. My hope for this series is to open …

I am so excited. Within the next couple of days, I hope to be able to reveal the cover of Discarded Heroes book #2, Digitalis. I got to see it last week and nearly exploded (*kersplat*). Barbour has done a fabulous job, and it’s sooooo amazing to see the series unfold and come to life. For now…my awesome friend Rel Mollet has a small feature on Nightshade (releases July 1st!) for your viewing pleasure on her blog, RelzReviewz. I’ll hope you’ll peak at it and leave a comment, just a small way of showing appreciation to Rel for featuring them–and she’s the first, so how kewl is that!?!? Blessings, y’all!!
