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

In the Soup, Getting Ready to Paddle out Again

Posted by erinlausten on June 3, 2014

Dude! Really, Dude!

Phoenix Comicon totally snuck up on me. Luckily it was while I was getting ready for Phoenix Comicon. I have passed the point of stressing over the details and am super excited. I mean in TWO days I will be geeking out with friends and making new geektastic friends. Who wouldn’t be excited?

I have scheduled release dates, which I’ll be announcing at the con first, for the next two novels. So keep an eye out for news after this Pop Culture extravaganza we call Phoenix Comicon.

If any of you will be at the convention come by my table and say hello! I love meeting readers 🙂  Plus I will have all the current books on-hand in print ready to sign. See you there!

Finally!

Posted by erinlausten on December 5, 2013

First and foremost – Thank You!
I know you have all waited and waited and waited. We were almost there, then the gremlins hit! Those little buggers conspired with some brownies I’m sure. For there was my beautiful manuscript, or at least the pathway to it, but I could not open it. Corruption most horrid! This heroine, however, persisted and perservered. I won’t bore you with the gory details, they don’t matter anymore. What truly matters is Unforeseen is here!

Available NOW at Smashwords and Amazon!

It’s Almost Here!

Posted by erinlausten on November 4, 2013

I promised, and promised, and promised… Finally, it’s happening! Book Two of the Viator series is on its way. Unforeseen follows the story of Grace and Lucius as they discover the depth of the conspiracy facing their peoples and confront threats that just might hit a little closer to home than anyone expected. The E-book will be available November 20th at top online bookstores and watch for the Print book to be released by the first week in December. I’ll have links available on this blog and my website at http://erinlausten.com as soon as the books are available.

To tide you over until then, here’s a look at the cover and a sneak peak at the book:

 

“You say that a lot. I am not certain what you mean,” Grace said.

“I say what?” Hailey said.

“Dude.”

At that Hailey burst into a loud laugh. Several passengers across the aisle looked over. “Dude is by far the best word in the English language.”

“I know that it has had numerous permutations through history. But you use it in ways I have never read.”

“Well. It used to mean a city slicker. It was a derogatory term for men from back east that didn’t fit into the west. But it was picked up by the California surfers and then teenagers. When I grew up, dude was required to be said in every sentence. That and certain swear words that I have tried to use a little less. I just can’t seem to get rid of dude.”

Fascinated, Grace gave a tentative smile. “But what does it mean?”

“Well. It can mean just about anything. Mostly a feeling. For instance, let’s say you said something I wasn’t expecting. I would say ‘Dude’,” the word came out short and changed in pitch toward the end. “But if you said something I didn’t agree with I would say ‘Dude’.” This time the word was said low and long.

Grace giggled. Then tried it herself, “Duuude.”

Hailey threw back her head and let loose another of her hearty laughs. Lucius peeked over her head. “Tell me you are not teaching her to speak your language.”

Both girls fell into a fit of giggles. Grace hadn’t had this much fun in…well, ever.
