Brigit Aine’s World
I am so excited to be here today. I really appreciate the chance to highjack the blog for a bit. I have two new and exciting things to let everyone know about… well I have lots of things I am involved in to let everyone know about so I suppose I should start.
First…I am co-owner of a fabulous FREE on-line romance magazine called Sensual Treats. We come out once a quarter and have some wonderful articles. Travel to romantic places features prominently; we have been to Italy, Greece, done some wonderful Winter Vacations and in March we are going Celtic. *sigh* my favorite. We also feature musicians, artists of all sorts and have some wonderful columns. Food, advice from a counselor and we offer free de-classified ads for authors and publishers. Twitter style ads that go in the back of the magazine as well as up on Twitter. We have a great ad rate for authors, promoters and publisher. We feature new and promising authors, do interviews, have romantic short stories and in general are a fun place to hang out. Check us out at http://sensualtreats.webs.com/ and see for yourself. There are free reads, great recipes and all of our issues are archived so stop by and sign up.
As if that isn’t enough I am an administrator at a wonderful new book review site called Siren Book Reviews. I have a great co-conspirator in Kayden McLeod. We are looking for books to review and reviewers…so be you a reader or an author, or both, stop by and check out what we are doing.
I just want to tell you that I am having a total blast hanging with great people who have wonderful ideas.
The newest project I have been drawn into is an up and coming promotion business for Paranormal Authors. Again, Ms. Kayden McLeod is the brains and I have willingly jumped in to follow. Otherworlds Publicity is just at the planning, beginning stages as we get ourselves licensed and situated, but once we get rolling will be a force to reckon with. If you have a paranormal blog and would like to host our authors, though, please e-mail me at Brigit@otherworldspub.info . Right now I am collecting spots for the Blog Tours we will be offering.
Still more…I am having a great time with all aspects of the writing world. In case you think that one is just an author or just a reader or just anything may I be the first to say that this not the case. I have been asked to co-moderate groups, get involved with reviews, start new projects…and that doesn’t even touch on my own works in progress (which are coming along nicely) or the books I have out. I have just been offered a contract for the third book in my Torrent’s Talents series with XOXO Publishing. I am very excited though and am sure “Kraig’s Kat” will do fabulously with them.
I have a number of titles out right now, “Red’s Return” Torrent’s Talents 1 at Decadent Publishing (http://www.decadentpublishing.com/product_info.php?products_id=168&osCsid=94l8obr4ai0nd2lrqlhuvdg3j1 ) and “Cassie’s Awakening” Torrent’s Talents 2 over at Eternal Press (http://eternalpress.biz/book.php?isbn=9781770650497 )and 2 anthologies with Just Another Paranormal Monday (where I am a co-owner) at Mojocastle Press. Just Another Paranormal Halloween (http://www.mojocastlepress.com/ParaHalloween.html ) and Just Another Paranormal Christmas (http://www.mojocastle.com/ParaChristmas.html )
There is a free read up on my website right now, a spin off on my Torrent’s Talents Series, called “Crystal’s Capitulation”. It is on the Works In Progress/Released page. Stop by and pick it up.
Thanks for hanging out with me today. Feel free to leave a comment, e-mail me, stop by the many places you will find me. I look forward to seeing you.
