Yeah, this pretty much came out of nowhere. :) This includes Awakened: The Zombie Who Loved Me, which is completely new!
Check it out! :D
THANKS TO YOU GUYS, Tangled made it to USA Today's bestselling list for this week at #111 - that number is pretty special to me.
It's funny how the first time I had a bundle on USAT I couldn't sit still. I want to shout it to the world. Now, I'm still feeling surreal about it, but not as excited. More...numb. Like, is this really happening? Was I part of another bundle that enough people bought to get it to USA Today?
Maybe someday I'd be "Oh, poo! It's just USA Today." But...I doubt it. I'm kinda like my characters in that way. I appreciate the finer things in life, but I love the little things, too - everything that should be a reason to smile will make me smile. =D
Anyway, this means I owe you ANOTHER chapter for OFF GUARD. And my fan fic readers are going to kill me if I don't put out another chapter for my Vampire Knight story. I will get to it eventually, but right now I'm up to my neck in deadlines with my publisher. =/ Hopefully by end of February or March 15 to be exact, I can concentrate on these free stories. I owe them to you and I will get them to you as soon as I can!
P.S. In case you missed it, The Art of Loving a Greek Billionaire is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and All Romance. What did you guys think? :)
P.P.S. Edited this post just to share that thanks to you guys, I'm #87 on Amazon's overall list for bestselling or most popular authors (I have a hard time figuring it out lol).
I am a horrible blogger. :(
I didn't used to be but writing tends to get in the way nowadays, so it's only today that I think I've caught up with all those who took the time to post comments on any of my blog posts. If I missed your comment - it was probably on one of the older entries that I didn't get to check. :( Sorry about that - maybe post a comment here again? I promise I'll check this particular entry the entire week.
If there's anything you'd like to say or ask - like, where's The Art of Loving a Greek Billionaire???
Now's the time to do it. :)

Watch out for my newsletter's special edition devoted exclusively to this amazing and sizzling hot new series! I know I'm not the only one here who's fangirling about this INCREDIBLE lineup of authors. And that all these authors' stories will take place in just ONE world???
Mind. Blown. Away.
Yeah, this is my New Year post, which should have been up ages ago but because of one book or another that I'm working on, it's only today that I've finally some time to work on it.
It was a blast. :) It was a humbling, thrilling, roller coaster experience that only God, my loved ones and my READERS could have made possible. I don't think I can say it better than that. Honestly, I wouldn't been able to write so many books without those three constants - and that includes you! - in my life.
2013, I got to self-publish (technically speaking) my first book, got to be in a boxed set, got to hit USA Today and - even more spectacular - the combined bestselling list of paperbacks and ebooks of the New York Times. As some authors call it, that one is THE list.
2013, I got to virtually meet a lot of authors and I consider them my friends (hopefully they consider me as their friend, too, hehe).
At the very end of the year, I finally got to spend quality time with my family. Granted, I spent most of the days writing but I got to enjoy a little time off at night. These days, we typically like to spend Christmas or New Year in places where it's chilly / cold. I know, I know - those of you freezing your cute butts off in the dead of winter are thinking we're crazy for doing that. But - we're really just sick of living nearly 24/7/365 in constant humidity!
Anyway, we went up to Baguio again for the New Year and as usual, our stay there wouldn't be complete without a visit to the night market, which sells mostly secondhand stuff. Shirts / tops here can go for as low as $.25! Sometimes, though, if you're lucky you also get to buy authentic designer stuff for really low prices.
Here's what the night market looks like ---
For 2014, I just really want to focus more on my writing and lose myself in my story worlds. I'm lucky that the boyfriend understands me. He accompanies me to the coffee shop and treats me to coffee and sandwiches when I have deadlines to meet.
So that's it for now. I need to get back to last-minute stuff for The Art of Loving a Greek Billionaire, which should be out if not 1/11 then 1/12. Well, okay maybe the thirteenth? Don't get maaaaaaad! I'm working as fast as I can! :D
P.S. A certain tweet from a reader had me LOLing.
To be honest, I really think - whether we admit it or not - we all have a "Mairi" inside of us. Well, okay, it's a HUGE part of me if I'm being truthful but hey! There's nothing wrong about being a hopeless romantic, right? :)
It's live now! Grab a copy on Amazon while it's still on sale for $.99!
