Moonless Blog Fest & Rafflecopter Giveaway!

MOONLESS Book Release Blog Fest, and GIVEAWAY with Crystal Collier!

In the English society of 1768 where women are bred to marry, unattractive Alexia, just sixteen, believes she will end up alone. But on the county doorstep of a neighbor’s estate, she meets a man straight out of her nightmares, one whose blue eyes threaten to consume her whole world—especially when she discovers him standing over her murdered host in the middle of the night.

Her nightmares become reality: a dead baron, red-eyed wraiths, and forbidden love with a man hunted by these creatures. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with her beloved and risk becoming one of the Soulless.

So here's the question: If you lived in a society where arranged marriages were a la mode, whom would you beg your parents to set you up with? Why? (Literary characters and celebrities welcomed.)

Without question...
Captain Malcolm Reynolds.
Captain of the Firefly-class transport ship Serenity.
There's a lot of fine ways to die. I ain't waiting for the Alliance to choose mine.

Now I did a job. I got nothing but trouble since I did it, not to mention more than a few unkind words as regard to my character so let me make this abundantly clear. I do the job. And then I get paid.

So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.

Half of writing history is hiding the truth.

Okay, um, I'm lost. Uh, I'm angry and I'm armed...

Listen, you don’t know me, son, so I’m gonna say this once: if I ever kill you, you’ll be awake, you’ll be facing me, and you’ll be armed.

You want to meet the real me now?

And in case its slipped your brain pan, I prefer him angry and armed.
*fans self*

That's about it for me today.

I did finish draft one edits for MC2 and I'm leaving it sit for a day or so while I get some other work done. YEAH ME!

Oh, and I was invited to my first book discussion group this past Saturday. A group of women, in the town where I live, all read Maguire's Corner and wanted to talk about it. With me!

What a surreal experience that was. Wonderful, but so strange.

They were a great bunch of ladies and had some really interesting questions ... and cake!

Now that I have one under my belt, I realize that it's not so bad. :)

I just hope I don't have to do it again ... for a little while.


  1. Congratulations on the book discussion! I bet that made you feel good.
    Mal is a great choice. You take Mal, I'll take Kaylee.

  2. Oh yeah. Captain Mal. I'd misbehave with him any time! Congrats on finishing your draft and going to your first book discussion. Awesome!

  3. YaY Mal. Hahaha, perfect choice. Just my cup of tea. Good on you for finishing your draft. Celebrate!

  4. Mal!!!! Heck yes. You win.

    Heather, that experience sounds totally freaky and amazing all in one. Congrats! (Making note not to ask her over to discuss book until she's recovered...)

  5. Woohoo! on completing that draft! I'm always so uplifted when I realize I've finished one--like I could accomplish anything. Then I re-read it and feel like I can't do even one small thing right. LOL But that goes away eventually. :D

    Great choice! Smart, bold, has badA spaceship--total package! :)

  6. Captain Malcolm Reynolds is an excellent choice!

  7. Ooo, I forgot about Mal. Excellent choice. Of course, I could never compete with Inara...

  8. Eeek, I can't believe that I haven't watched that show yet. But there is no denying that your choice is a handsome guy.

  9. Most excellent choice! Yeah, he'd definitely a great armed and angry, er, partner :)

  10. Such a good show, such a good choice!

  11. Oh snap, love him too! Great choice.
    Stopping in from the Moonless Blogfest. New follower.

  12. Mmm, Mal. Excellent, excellent choice. I'm ever so grateful to the Firefly costume designers for those pants.

  13. Hey, that's Richard Castle from my favorite show Castle! I've never seen the show where he's Mal, but I do like this younger, rugged version. Very nice. Great choice!!

  14. Congratulations on your book talk!
    And congrats to Crystal!!! Woohoo!
    Mal is a nice choice!

    I'm so glad you all liked my manly MAL choice!

    How cool that you were invited to a group to discuss your book - I think that's so awesome!

  17. Angry, armed, and from Firefly. Not such a bad combination. :)

  18. don't let him shot! kidding...he shot your heart, didn't he? great pick!

  19. I think I'l go back and change my answer now! Angry and armed for sure.


  20. How great to be invited to a book discussion on YOUR book! I can see where it might be a bit terrifying, but incredibly rewarding too. Congrats!

    And you presented plenty of physical documentation as to your dream husband pick. Good job!

  21. Wow, the whole wide world of men to choose from, real or imagined? Sheesh, how difficult could you make this?

    Tom Hiddleston, Henry Cavill, Cap'n Mal, Castle, Edward (yes, I said Edward!), HRH William Wales.... I can't choose -

    I wish I could have been at your book glad they all enjoyed the book!

    Can't wait to read Round 2!

    Love you,

  22. I commend you on your choice, Heather. Now I need to dig out my FireFly boxset ...

  23. Good choice and congrats to Crystal.

  24. You guys are the best!

    After looking for great quotes I realized how much I want to watch the series all over again too!


  25. Hi, Heather,

    Congrats on the completion and the discussion! How cool to have a group discuss your book.

    It's good for a writer to keep out and meet people. That's how we touch base with hour fans and gain some valuable insight to what they REALLY think!

  26. I loved that show. Too bad it had to end. Good choice! You have good taste in men. :)

  27. Great choice! I just wish he were smiling in one of those pictures. You can tell a lot about a person when they smile.

  28. That's so neat that you got to talk about Maguire's Corner with your fans! The more you do it, the easier it will be.

  29. Gosh, he is a fantastic choice. I hadn't thought of him. Nicely done! (I loved that show, btw.)

  30. Mal's a great choice and a big congrats to Crystal :)

  31. I knew Firefly would show up sooner or later! Nice choice! :)

  32. Congrats on the book discussion success! Umm, I didn't know who Mal was . . . but, I do now -- he's drop-dead gorgeous, with an attitude . . . oh, yeah! (Hub's chuckling!)

  33. Don't know this guy, but then, I'm a dinosaur. :)

  34. WHY did I not think of him? There are heaps I've thought of in hindsight, of course, and I love them equally to my beloved Darcy. haha. But yeah, LOVE Mal Reynolds.
