Rachel Got the Contract Blog Hop

Rachel Van Dyken rocks!!! Not only is Rachel a super nice person, she just signed a contract with Hachette Publishing for two of her self published books, The Bet and Elite, which are currently selling at a frenzied pace on Amazon. Kudos, Rachel. You're a great example for authors everywhere.  Go to   to follow the tour.

Who'd like to read a blurb about the books? You would? Okay, here goes.

Blurb: The Bet

"I have a proposition for you..." Kacey should have run the minute those words left Seattle millionaire Jake Titus's mouth. Instead, she made a deal with the devil in hopes of putting her past behind her once and for all. Four days. She could do four days! But she wasn't counting Jake’s older brother Travis being there to witness their farce of an engagement. One thing is for certain. One brother is right for her. One wants a lifetime. And one is in league with the devil. She should have gotten Jake’s signature in blood.

Blurb: Elite

When I won the annual Eagle Elite College Scholarship lottery, I was thrilled. After all, my grandma had just died and I wanted to take care of my aging grandpa — he couldn't be a farmer in Wyoming forever. And graduating from Eagle Elite meant opportunity. But I wasn't counting on meeting Nixon. Nor was I counting on the rules of the Elect. 1. Do not touch The Elect. 2. Do not look at The Elect. 3. Do not speak to The Elect. And worst of all? Don't discover the secret they hide, because in the end, you may just realize... it's about you.

Both of these books are new adult works. You can find out more about Rachel and her writing at  Rachel, congratulations and I can't wait to see what you come up with in the future.

Now for an announcement for myself, The Enchanted, my first fantasy romance released from Astraea Press yesterday. I've put a blurb and cover for that too. I'd sure appreciate it if you'd trake a look at it and spread the word for me.  If you'd like to attend my online release party, go to  I'm sharing the first chapter from The Enchanted.

Blurb: The Enchanted

Forced by his father into a marriage he didn’t want, Prince Alan soon finds that his bride isn’t the sweet, submissive creature he expected.  Morgane has the heart of a dragon and beauty beyond compare, but she isn’t thrilled about the marriage either.  When black treachery threatens the kingdom, Morgane and Alan embark on a perilous journey that has an excellent chance of ending in failure and death for them and all of their people.
