Good Morning,

I got up this morning to see the UK decided to leave the EU and Donald Trump’s first interview from Scotland included a promo spot for his new golf course.

The world is freaking pear shaped right now. It blows my mind. It shouldn’t… but it does.

Over here in Graylin land, I’m working on the second Contessa story. It’s tentatively titled I Do, But First… It will release this November. If I finish it earlier, I’ll change the date during the pre-order process.

Arcane Court – For those of you waiting for the fourth book Fanged Deception, it will release this December. Each full length novel of this series comes out a week or two before Halloween.

If you missed it earlier this year, I am now an official member of the Horror Writer’s Association. I’m still giddy about that. It’s the first, and only, professional association I’ve joined. I’m hoping to make it to the convention next year (StokerCon).

This fall, I’ll be appearing at the Indie Book Fest in Orlando October 7-9th. It’s a lovely convention, smaller with a lot more interaction. I hope to see you there!

That’s about it for this week. I’ve been swamped at my day job. Which is fabulous and I’m grateful there are people who trust me with their fragile pain so they can heal.

Off to write more fights!

Graylin

 

Cleansing and Organizing

You can't beat this morning view.

You can’t beat this morning view.

This month I’ve been simplifying my life. Actually, it started a couple years ago, but I’ve kicked it into gear.

I’m moving at the beginning of next year, and I’m downsizing. I don’t need the excess furniture, or rooms that are rarely used. I had much less stress in my life when I live comfortably in a one bedroom place with a great view. I’ll be going from a 3/2 to a 2/2 (I need one room for bookshelves *koff*) with a beach view (all hail Florida – yes, I love the odd).

I used ThredUP to donate some of the better handbags, totes, clothes, and shoes that only took up space. I can’t walk in heels anymore. I wear size 5 – it’s a challenge on my best days.

Today, it has taken a turn toward my writing life. I’m donating blank/empty journals and notebooks. I have clients who love to write (they don’t know what I do on the side) – one is 10 yrs old.

I feel lighter already. 🙂

**AUTOGRAPHED PAPERBACK**

My cabin sits near a portal to the Otherworld. The Dark Fae are sending ogres to kill any humans who survived the plague they unleashed a year ago. First a baby dragon, then a goblin, show up looking for me. That’s when the fairy I’d known for a year decides to tell me I’m an elf and my high school boyfriend runs the Dark Fae. I went from human with a bad breakup to a fairy tale creature that was still in love with a killer in three days. A trip through the Otherworld portal shows me my birthplace and dangles the promise of a happy ending I thought was gone. Confronted with true evil, I have to learn my ice magic while fighting for my life. With rekindled love and a new family to protect, I’ll have to battle a psychotic elf with lightning power. One bolt and I’ll disintegrate. One of us won’t survive.

The Red Hot Authors present Red Hot & BOOM! A Sizzling Hot Collection of Stories

Celebrate Independence Day with Ten Books from Authors who will Heat Your Summer Nights:

ALL HAT NO CATTLE by Randi Alexander – Deep in cowboy country for a rodeo, Harper Johansen is looking for a cowboy of her own, but roughneck Shaw Donahue needs to convince her to value a man for more than his cattle.

FOR LIBERTY by Rene Folsom – While deployed, his mission classified, the heartfelt letters Maximus writes are the only bits of communication Liberty receives while he is away. His letters are a constant reminder of why he chooses to fight: For Liberty.

COME WITH ME by Sable Hunter – Lacy has never experienced the big ‘O’. This July 4th will have more explosions than fireworks in the sky. Jake will prove to Lacy he can be all she needs – in bed and out.

WHITE CHOCOLATE CHERRY by Graylin Rane – When a widowed news reporter receives notice she’ll receive a Candy Man, she’s nervous. Can she open her heart and her home to another man?

SCORIN’ ON THE FOURTH OF JULY by Cassandra Carr – When professional hockey player Mikael meets USA Olympic goaltender Terri, both her beauty and skill attract him. But Terri might have to leave town to keep playing and their blossoming love put on ice.

ONE LAST RODEO by Michel Prince – Mistakes happen when we’re young, now this rodeo pickup man will have one chance to fix it with his ex. She ran to the city to make it big on the news, but he’ll bring this country girl home.

STARS AND SPARKS by Christin Lovell – One curvy journalist. One ex-marine. Two people attempting to find their new place in this world, but, sometimes, it’s not about finding a place; it’s about finding a person. And there’s nothing but stars and sparks between these two.

FIRECRACKER! by Desiree Holt – She’s hot as a pistol in the rodeo ring, leaving the competition n ashes. But can this firecracker bring the same explosive emotion to a night with two hot, hot, hot men?

SPARKS FLY by Mari Carr – I Do is the easy part. Happily ever after? Not so much. Over the Fourth of July weekend, Evan vows he’ll reignite his wife, Annie’s passion with his own brand of fireworks.

RETURN TO HER by Alexandra O’Hurley – Writhing passion quickly turns into more when friends become lovers. Their surrender comes days before an ill-timed deployment, where the two are quickly ripped apart. Will fate prevent this soldier from returning to her?

The Great Convergence

After close to two years of having two websites, two facebook accounts, and two twitters for my pen names, I’m merging them.

Graylin Rane – Paranormal Romance short stories – The Candy Man Delivery series has been  very popular. Seriously, who doesn’t like carved chocolate statues?

Graylin Fox – Urban Fantasy – and anything that doesn’t fall in other categories.

Rane Sjodin – Dark Urban Fantasy – The Arcane Court books (and novellas, and short stories – basically if Rane wrote it, it’s set in the Arcane Court world).

Hopefully, with only one social media author page on FB, Twitter, Pinterest, and so forth.. I can manage them more easily.

Florida SuperCon

Candy Man Delivery series Anthology

 

I’ll be at Florida SuperCon at the Miami Beach Convention Center June 25th – 28th.

I own Dark Fantasy Press and will be in that booth space #1927. I will have some books to sign with me, including the Candy Man Delivery Series paperback with all six stories in it! It came out to 300 pages in paperback. Wooo!!

I’ll have some of my Rane Sjodin books as well as copies of Contessa to sign. I’ll bring cover cards, business cards, and some book marks.

Come on down to the sun and say hello!

Contessa coming in Paperback

GraylinFox_ContessaHiRes

In the next three weeks, Contessa will be available in paperback at Amazon.com through Createspace. I’m also looking at the paperback/hardcover options at Nookpress.

The paperback cover is amazing. Thanks to Syneca Featherstone for her amazing work.

The book is in review at Createspace. It will be on sale for $9.99. The reason for the high price, which I wouldn’t hike up if I didn’t have to – is in the graphic below. Amazon insists a book of 366 page be AT LEAST $8.74. In order for me to make 75 cents a book, it’s at $9.99.

Cover Reveal: Hot Caramel Passion

DFP_GraylinRane_HotCaramelPassion_EbookCover_HiRes

 

Releasing October 15, 2014 is the 5th in the Candy Man Delivery series.

Blurb:

Ava’s skills as a chef took her from private celebrity chef to owner of Miami’s hottest new restaurant. Shy since kindergarten, she expressed her passions in the kitchen. Loneliness lowered her shoulders as the accolades faded at closing each night. At thirty-three, she was still single, preferring a crowded kitchen to a man across a small table.

Her brother signed her up with Viviana, owner of The Candy Man Delivery Service. She’d been appalled until he showed her the picture of Viviana’s man, Adonis. Her anxiety quelled each day by a furious work schedule then ran rampant over her mind as she tried to sleep.

Exhausted and shaking, she opens her condo door to find Marcus with caramel colored skin, dark hair, and intense brown eyes. He helps her bloom as she experiences complete devotion for the first time in her life.
