Thursday Thirteen #17 ~ Thirteen Reasons to Pre-Order THE WOLVERINE AND THE ROSE on

This week's 13 is blatant promo. LOL My book, THE WOLVERINE AND THE ROSE, is now up for pre-order on, and you can find it here:

1.) IT'S ON FREAKIN' AMAZON.COM. Need there be another reason? :P

2.) You've already read THE CRYSTAL OF MYNOS, the free read prequel to this series found at:

3.) I've had the idea for this story for 20 years. So there's some nostagia going on.

4.) If you love dragons, you'll LOVE Mynos. He's a dragon-shifter, written before I even knew what a "shifter" was. When I began this book, I thought, "It would be cool if my dragon could use his magic to change into a man." Who would have thought by the time I had this published, everyone would be writing dragon-shifters?

5.) If you like Medieval-esque sword & sorcery, you'll like this book.

6.) If you ever wanted a little more romance to go with your fantasy, you'll like this book.

7.) It's got a kick-ass cover.

8.) It's one of my favorite books ever.

9.) It's the first book in a sweet three-book series entitled The Legends of Mynos. Sure, each book is about a different Wolverine, or knight of the king, and each book has it's own contained plot. But there is an overarching plot of the dragons that you'll be excited to read about as well.

10.) The entire series is finished. If I happen to die tomorrow, you'll still be able to read the series without interruption. LOL

11.) If they make a movie, you'll be able to say you've read the book.

12.) It's on sale on Amazon until its release date of August 21st for 32% off!!

13.) It's published with Samhain Publishing, a house that is truly going places, who's just signed a sweet deal to become Kensington Books's newest imprint! AWESOME!

And there you have it, 13 reasons why you should Pre-Order THE WOLVERINE AND THE ROSE on!

I like that you said "blatant" self-promotion instead of "shameless" self-promotion (which some of my friends say). I don't think the word "shame" should live anywhere near the word self-promotion - hey, we all gotta do it! And fans want to know!

And, those are all such good reasons.
