Noodle Armed but Pumping

Posted by erinlausten on March 16, 2015

Life continues to move forward at a fast pace. I love it! I know it may not seem that way from the gaps in this blog. Or maybe it does. Either way, let me catch you all up on the most exciting items.
I am currently writing the third book in the Viator Legacy series and once again becoming engulfed in these dynamic characters. I can’t wait to share this one with you. Unfortunately, I have to finish it first!
Speaking of the Viator Legacy – tomorrow, March 17th, is the last day to purchase Unforeseen for $0.99. Get your copy and leave me feedback. Good reviews are great and not so good reviews are even better! I can only improve for you if I know what I am missing.
Now to end this post with some really exciting news!

Cibola’s Revenge will be offered digitally through Arizona Libraries via BiblioBoard Library. This is an awesome opportunity. I am very excited not just to be a part of this but also that libraries are becoming more open to digital editions as well as indie authors.

I hope you are all doing well and I can’t wait to make some more announcements soon.

Cheers!

2015… Wow!

Posted by erinlausten on February 2, 2015

Here we are in the second month of 2015 and I am amazed at how quickly it is going already.

When reminiscing on New Year’s Eve with my extended family I realized this year marks FIVE years since I published my first novel Unexpected! I can’t believe it. I feel like I’ve only just started this journey but looking back at the books since Unexpected I know it’s been a heck of a ride. And it is FAR from over.

To celebrate I am offering Unforeseen (Book 2 – Viator Legacy) for $0.99 from February 2nd until March 17th on Smashwords and Amazon! I love Grace and would like more folks to meet her. Lucius isn’t too bad either.

Let’s get ready for more adventures with Deadbeat coming out very soon and Unrepentant (Book 3 – Viator Legacy) coming out later this year. This wild ride just keeps on going.

Happy 2015 Everyone!

Announcement and Sale!

Posted by erinlausten on December 17, 2014

Season’s Greetings to all my Readers and Friends!

After a honestly brutal heart to heart with my editor and betas I decided that I could not release Deadbeat just yet. You all deserve my best and that is exactly what I am going to give you.

I want to thank you for your continued support and patience. This story got away from me. This universe has so many unique personalities and they all want my attention. To be honest, they distracted me with how fun each one is.

In the meantime, to make up for the delay AND give everyone an opportunity to submit an honest review of my first book, I am lowering the price. From TODAY, December 17th, until January 31st you can purchase the digital version of Unexpected : A Viator Legacy Novel for only $0.99. This price is available on Smashwords, (for Kobo, Nook, iBook, PDF, etc.) and Amazon (for Kindle.)

This weekend I am baking cookies, decorating and spending time with my family. I hope you all are enjoying this Holiday Season with the people you love.

Happy Chanukkah, Blessed Yule, Happy Kwanzaa, and Merry Christmas!!XmasGingerbread

Crashing Waves and Lego Everywhere!

Posted by erinlausten on November 12, 2014

For the first time in forever…I took a vacation that I actually felt like I deserved. Not that I don’t always deserve or even want vacations, my goal in life is to see just about all there is possible to see.  In this case, I actually needed a break from working so hard. Now, often working too hard is considered a bad thing, as we would all love to have a job that is relatively easy to do and enjoyable. For me things have been both hectic and fulfilling. I’ve been working my tush off to get my workload caught up in the office and also finishing up the revisions for Deadbeat. I am happy to say that both are well on their way to moving forward. (It took a little longer than planned. It will be SO worth the delay!)

But that brings me back to vacations. Sometimes you need a vacation to get away from the drag of the everyday. Other times you need a chance to bring yourself back to center. And sometimes, like my recent vacation, it is a time of celebration. And we did celebrate. I had a blast with my family in San Diego. We visited Cabrillo National Monument and explored the Tide Pools. (This is a place and activity I highly recommend to anyone taking a trip to the area.) Then we hit up Legoland, and honestly, do I need to say more? I mean, come on… Lego! We closed our trip with several hours at the beach. I saw dolphins. From the beach. Yes. Dolphins! For a desert rat, it is a sight you never forget. It was phenomenal.

And now, I’m home, happy, and ready to keep moving forward. It is going to be an amazing holiday season and I can already predict 2015 is going to be a year for the record books.

Ok, time for me to finish up those final edits on Deadbeat. Keep your eyes peeled for a vampire who puts a whole new spin on the supernatural.

Cheers!

Bring on the Confetti!

Posted by erinlausten on October 13, 2013

I finished the first run of edits and Cibola’s Revenge is at my betas. Crossing my fingers they love it; Double crossing my fingers I get good feedback to make it even better than it is.

AND, now, what to do next? This writing life is fab, but seriously, no one is telling me the answers or what the next step is. I love being independent and making my own decisions, but sometimes I wish I had a map. No. A manual. That’s right. Where is the manual? I’ve read the ones which claim they’re The Manual. But they aren’t. So what next?

Ah, let’s wing it. That’s what Hailey would do right? Not that I think Hailey is much of a role model, but at least she’s authentic. So here we go.

My next project is begging to be written, so I think I’ll go with that. Prepare yourself for a look at the paranormal realm you’ve never ever seen before.

So much fun!
