So what did Netta have to day?

Netta is a reviewer for here in San Diego, my home town. She read the first couple of my books, reviewed them, then came to one of my book signings a couple months ago. It was wonderful to meet her in person! I've been on pins and needles wondering what she thought of my latest. Well, the review is out!

"This fourth book from one of my favorite authors, Samantha Sommersby, is a hot, action-filled new read!...This novella packs a punch from the fast loving to the eventual outcome of the crazed rogue wolf...Bottom line, this book gets a resounding 5!"

This little boost came at a wonderful time. The past two days have been spent working like crazy on edits and adding some new scenes to The Ascension for which I have both a cover AND a release date. Release date - 10/16/09. I need to check to see if I can share the cover yet. This will be Byron and Violet's story combined into one novel with additional bonus material consisting of new/added scenes. As soon as I can, I'll post the cover!

On writing Erotica and body piercings

Whipped Cream recently interviewed me on the topic of writing erotic romance. Are you curious about what I write it? How I know how much sex to include? Or what I imagine the difference between erotic romance, erotica or pornography to be? Or you can just skip to the part where they ask me what body part I want to have pierced. Hee hee!

Happy 4th of July everyone!

My July Contest - A Signed Copy of Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris!

My July Contest - A Signed Copy of Dead and Gone by Charlaine Harris!

Charlaine Harris,True Blood,Sookie Stackhouse,Vampire,Urban Fantasy,Paranormal

How about a hot vampire romance to make this summer even hotter?
Check out my July Contest!

July is one of my favorite months, partially because that's when Comic-Con comes to San Diego every year. I'm not ashamed to admit it. I am a total geek. One reason I'm excited is that this gives me the opportunity to see some of my Buffy Buds - all of us are huge fans of Joss Whedon and Comic-Con gives an opportunity to geek-out together! Embarrassing, I know.

Charlaine Harris took some time off earlier this year due to her daughter's graduation. But she will be attending Comic-Con and promoting her newest release in the Sookie Stackhouse/True Blood Series: Dead and Gone, available now in hard cover. A signed copy could be yours!

To enter you must (1) be on Sam's newsletter mailing list and (2) send in your entry via the contact form on Sam's website. Provide your snail mail address along with the phrase "July Contest".


Good luck all!
