BLOG RADIO .... WITH CRIMSON AND MIDNIGHT FROST BOOKS

Hello authors, editors, support staff and friends/colleagues, we are happy to announce that Frost Books, Crimson Frost and Midnight Frost Books will be hosting a blogradio show two times a month.  At least that is the plan at this time.  This is just in its infancy so things are subject to change and we are open to suggestions. 

We are developing a schedule at this time.  We hope it will promote us, our authors and others to the world of readers.  We are excited for authors to share their stories and encourage and develop their fan base.  Truth be told we wish to develop our fan base too.  In doing so, we want to not only promote but to provide information and tips on editing, writing, promoting, and all other topics which impact the industry. 

We will be asking our support staff… editors, artist, promoters, and bloggers to participate as well and talk about themselves and their services. Share their excitement for what they do as part of our team and without Frost Books.  Our view is to promote all, to get to know each other, and to educate one another.

To get everyone’s name out.  For all to benefit, either directly or indirectly.  We will be inviting other publisher friends and outside authors to participate as well, especially our Beachwalk authors!  But we invite any others as well.  Patricia and I are published by other publishers.  Sharing their news and upcoming books/ events is also our goal.

Our show will be 30 minutes long each time.  In that time, we want the world to know about us, our authors, our author’s books and others, our friends, and anything else that excites our readers and our authors who we truly appreciate.

We are aware that there are some publishers who have not been author and or reader friendly. We are not pleased with that news generally as authors and or publishers.   Patricia and I are authors and readers too and we understand.  We want to do all we can do to achieve success for all. No doubt, we are all learning.  But this is true in any industry.  Even lawyers and doctors learn while doing their jobs.  I know you hate to think so, but it is often true.  They do learn and they do succeed!  We all want to succeed. 

We endeavor to be honest and communicative with our staff and authors.  We searched our brains to find a way to bring us all closer and to help all.  Therefore, Patricia and I came up with the idea of blogradio. 
We hope you like this idea too. 

If you were sent this email or are reading this… We are inviting you to participate and we would like to schedule you.  The interviews will be done over the phone or computer.  So, you will not need to fly here to gorgeous Ohio, USA or Kamloops, BC.  LOL.  The world is so cool with all this tech we are close no matter where you are.

If you have friends who are authors self-published or with other pubs…. Let them know we would like to interview them about their books too.  Spread the word!  We are anxious to hear what you all think!

Thanks so much for your time,
Ciara Lake and Patricia Bates


This will be shared on FB, twitter, and blogs.  So, if you don't get email... you will get this.

GREAT REVIEW FOR MY FRIEND ZERLINA VALINSKI'S URBAN WOLF, BOOK THREE IN THE IMMORTAL PASSIONS SERIES



Ragen Kerrigan a gorgeous young woman who has a way with animals as well as people who are hurting.  She heals with a mere touch.  Using this mysterious skill, she does not understand, she’s a much admired Vet. 
        Liam O’Neill is a, Zerphalin, a shape shifting warrior, much like a werewolf, created by the Celtic goddess Macha.  In his past existence in another realm, his heart was broken.  Now he lives in the mortal realm.   He’s lonely, yet turns down sexual advances of a beautiful Sensual Moon Witch.  Liam longs for something more than meaningless sex.  In his long life time, he’s had enough of passing affairs and sharing a woman is out of the question. 
            
          Goddess Achtland appears to Liam out of the blue.  She issues him orders to find a female relative of hers currently living in the mortal realm.  In return, Achtland promises him to help find his mate.  
            Ragen goes to Chattanooga, into the big city, to a fund raiser for their animal hospital. After letting her friend off, Ragen parks her car several blocks away.  As she walks to the event she’s accosted.  Out of nowhere, an amber eyed champion arrives saving her. Liam, owner of The Urban Forest, introduces himself as the Urban Wolf.  He invites her to his club after the fund raiser event ends. 
          Ragen accepts his invitation, not realizing her life is going to change forever.  With the help of Liam, she’ll embrace her place in the supernatural world.  Ragen is about to become the Warrior’s Faery Princess. 

Warning:  Hot sexy man and explicit sex 

A GREAT REVIEW:

I am so excited to get this wonderful review. Thank you so much Valerie Negron!

Her Review: 

This is another great summer read! Its a short easy read but with that being said it was amazing. Do not let a short book fool you. This book was jam packed with emotions and great chemistry between the main characters. The characters were very well written. You felt like you were with them and you felt like you knew them. You felt every emotion that they were experiencing.

The description in this book was well written and you could see, feel, andhear everything that was going on with the characters and the world around them. I could see everything I was reading.

There were lots of twists in this book that had m

e turning the pages to see what was going to happen. I literally read this book in one day cause every chance I got I was reading to see what was coming or going to happen. By the end of the book mostly everything had been explained and all tied up nicely. The book and the plot flowed very nicely. You were able to read and understand everything that was happening.


Liam is a great teacher for Ragen. Ragen is a type of witch able to heal by touch and she has just started getting and experiencing her powers. Liam comes to find her by request of a Goddess to keep her safe and to bring her back to the goddess. You will have to read yourself to find out why this Goddess wants to see Ragen and wants to keep her safe.

Liam is a Zerphalin, an immortal shapeshifter, he can shapeshift to what he wants but prefers the wolf form. He is looking to settle down instead of having meaningless encounters and sex. When he finds Ragen the chemistry and reaction between these two is AMAZING!!!! I just want to say that I would love me some Liam. He is sexy, strong, and compassionate all wrapped up into one with a sexy wolf form.

This book ends on a huge cliffhanger and mystery. Thats why I say mostly everything has been explained and tied up in this book. This cliffhanger was so huge I was so disappointed for it to end. Now I am wondering what is gonna happen to Ragen and if she will continue to be safe. Im also curious to see ragen and Liam's love continue to develop and grow. I cant wait to read the next book to continue with Ragen and Liam and hopefully it is done and released soon.

This book gets a 5/5 from me!!

GARY STARTA'S BOOKS ... 9INCARNATE AND DEMON INHIBITIONS


In 9 INCARNATE Egypt’s great gods and goddesses arrive by comet bringing hope of unity and secrets of the pyramids. However, the beloved Isis isn’t among the Arrivals and preternatural investigator Caitlin Diggs begins hearing the goddess in her head. Could Diggs’s previous exposure to a crystal artifact substantiate the belief that Isis has stored her essence on Earth and consequently now shares her human body? 
Perplexed, Diggs turns to a scientist to explain the Arrivals, not to mention the weirdness which includes a coinciding mass disappearance and assassination of the president. Diggs surmises the deities may be preparing a new Egypt until a lethal threat of global warming emerges. More perplexing, is her co-alignment with Isis an alliance or hindrance? Diggs may have to make the ultimate sacrifice if she is to keep Egypt’s past from ending Earth’s future, and all the while maintain her integrity. 




Here's Caitlin's take on her life before the PARALLEL UNIVERSE...an extra from DEMON INHIBITIONS, multi-genre fantasy/paranormal/mystery novel!


Demon Inhibitions $0.99 KINDLE




Genre: Paranormal – Science Fiction
Number of pages: 225Word Count: 83,000
Cover Artist: Exquisite Ebook Creations
AMAZON  Smashwords Kobo
Book Description:

Most people don't travel to another universe to get a new job, house and boyfriend but psychic investigator Caitlin Diggs did.

Now she's living the life of her alternate self, working for the FBI's Preternatural Division where her first case just happens to include chasing a genetically engineered man hell bent on stealing souls. Well, there had to be consequences.
My heroine is Caitlin and like you or me she is concerned about looking older, and she loves her cat!  Here's what her day might look like!
A day in the life of Caitlin Diggs…
(before the parallel universe).

I always start the day squinting into my bathroom mirror. It’s been a ritual of my 30’s and each day I don’t uncover a new wrinkle or line is equivalent to the delicious sensation of biting into a chocolate chip cookie. Well, almost. I discover and uncover things, mostly people, for a living. My career path is rocky and winding, including a long stint as a Special Agent for the FBI. Now I’ve shifted careers into the private sector as a PI. I’ve also traded homes, leaving Manassas, Virginia for Salem, Massachusetts – a bewitching town if there ever was one.

I hope that sensation, the thrill of stopping a killer, will return in my new line of work. So far, the clients aren’t exactly pounding down the door but I’ve had one strange man solicit my services. It involves a case the local PD can’t crack.





As I continue standing in front of my mirror, the beginning of all my days lately, I look really hard into my sapphire eyes and try to decode the change I recently experienced. It happened after encountering an artifact. It gave me telepathy and telekinesis. The kind of gifts you don’t give as stocking stuffers at the FBI Christmas parties. It was the very thing that made me quit the Bureau because I can’t expect their protocols to fit my new and unexpected, alternate life style.

You would think a person who recently acquired abilities would be less concerned about crow’s feet or gaining a pound or two. In truth, I still consider the more simple things of life as most precious. I love my adorable Tonkinese cat, Celeste. She has the prettiest blue eyes and sweetest disposition until her Alpha senses kick in. In a way, she’s kind of like me because we both have soft underbellies beneath our hard veneers, the two sides usually competing for dominance. I actually used to practice leering so I could intimidate suspects. It comes automatically now so it’s one more thing I can check off my ‘to do’ list.

So is it weird I see some of myself in my cat? I guess I rely on Celeste as a crutch because I’ve left my sister behind in DC. I miss her although she can drive me crazy. I am career-oriented where she is couch-oriented. She is lucky she doesn’t live for the precarious types of thrills I seek.

Avoiding sugar for breakfast is another major plus. Celeste usually mewls at this point either in sympathy, adulation or just plain hunger. She loves salmon and I’m happy to provide for her.

After her feeding, I usually experience a knock on my door from the next door Wiccan, Briana McFadden. She talks shop about the locals and I listen because I am an inquisitive investigator, not some nosy, gossiper. I hope I’ve made myself clear.

Well, time to get down to work. Celeste is fed and Briana is off to the shops to buy herbs and all things holistic. I start surfing the Internet, looking for job leads. I ignore my sister Tara’s email urging me to improve my fashion sense. I am quite certain dressing in Earth tones is a fashion sense somewhere on this planet.

I answer my phone and it’s a call from my old friend Det. Stanford Carter. He needs my help to chase something he believes might be paranormal. He is the one of the few people I’ve taken into confidence. He is aware of my abilities and he thinks they might aid in the man hunt – or should I say demon hunt. I am yet to learn - despite my psychic ability - that this chase will literally change my universe and my usual routine will rarely involve staring into a mirror because in an altered reality I will meet my doppelganger and she will act as a living reflection of who I am.

TREAT YOUR MOM THIS MOTHER'S DAY TO A SIZZLING ROMANCE AND OR SENSATIONAL READ AT CRIMSON FROST BOOKS AND OR MIDNIGHT FROST BOOKS


We celebrate Mother's Day to honor our women. Women and more specifically, Mothers, have from the beginning of time, molded and influenced our societies.  For example, The Bible, speaks about the power of the hand who rocks the cradle.  That hand would belong to a Mother.  Mothers have swayed governments and kings  since the beginning of mankind.   

This holiday is celebrated all over the world.  Most commonly in the spring.  Celebrating Mother's Day started in the United States in the early 20th Century.  

However, over thousands of years, many great civilizations and religions have celebrated motherhood.  In fact, some religions have Goddesses who represent Motherhood and or Womanhood.  

Therefore, this Mother's Day, honor your Mom with a gift of a Sizzling Romance.  Give Mom a vacation in a book.  Crimson Frost Books would like to help you, by offereing 15% off  of all our books, except teasers, from May 8th to May 11th. 

Check out our inventory.  And if romance isn't what motivates your Mother, check out Midnight Forst Books, who is offering the same sale on Sensational Reads. 

Happy Mother's Day to all Women all over the world.  We deserve this moment of appreciation!

VALENTINE'S DAY IS A ROMANCE AUTHOR'S FAVORITE HOLIDAY!





Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem of love:

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

These famous poetic words excite me.  They make my heart race, my blood pound with the dreams of love stories filled with passion. I write these dreams down, to share with you, readers of my books.  I create characters who in my mind come alive fully on my pages.  

I am thrilled to know people enjoy my books.  I love to hear from readers too. Please drop me line or comment here on my blog.

From my writing experiences I have been blessed with friends, new business partners, and exciting ventures.  I have grown in my talents of communication and I am thankful for everyone, my fans, my publishers, my editors, and my fellow authors. 

Please check out my books at Siren Publishing, eTreasures, and Beachwalk Press.  Also, check out Crimson Frost and Midnight Frost Publishing.  My friend and co author Patricia Bates (Elise Whyles) on the Forsaken series would like you to take a look at our new venture. Crimson Frost publishes hot romances and Midnight Frost publishes nearly everything else worth reading... thrillers, mysteries, horror, young adult, family saga, paranormal, sci fi, children's books, and more.  There is world worth reading and we want to help offer it to you. 

In truth, I never dreamed that earning a Juris Doctorate and having years of practising law in and out of court rooms would lead to this.  But now, I have been published soon to be 8 times by outstanding publishers and my universe has changed. I am thrilled and excited to share the cummulation of my experiences through my own books and the promotion of other's stories. 
May happiness, love, romance and passion bless your Valentine's Day!  
Kisses! 
Ciara Lake
