#IWSG: BOOK LAUNCH – Better Wear Your Flak Jacket

unnamed (6)What writing rule do you wish you’d never heard?

While writing The Guardian’s Wildchild, my editor cajoled me into writing a bio for each character. I don’t know what magic she used on me. Normally, when someone tells me to follow a rule, I rebel. Grumbling and protesting, I did write biographies for each of the dozen characters. It was the best advice for keeping my characters’ actions, thoughts, dialogue consistent. But I still hate doing it. LOL
The awesome co-hosts for the January 4 posting of the IWSG are Eva @ Lillicasplace, Crystal Collier, Sheena-kay Graham, Chemist Ken, LG Keltner, and Heather Gardner!


Please let me know if you would like to participate in Forbidden’s Launch.

February 14th to 18th

Everyone who participates in Forbidden’s launch will be eligible to win a gift, valued at $200

 PS: Anyone who wants to read Forbidden and write a review will receive an ebook or pdf directly from me for FREE.


 May I ask one more teensy favor?


With my second novel, FORBIDDEN, on Amazon’s kindle book shelf, Bartholomew (Bart, aka Croak) and I are encouraging readers to read FORBIDDEN and write a review. We’ve teamed up with Reading Deals. Readers will receive an ebook of Forbidden for free in exchange for a review. To help get the word out, I’ve created a Thunderclap with the following blurb.

“I’m celebrating Forbidden’s arrival on Amazon. Read Forbidden for free in exchange for a review.”

Support Forbidden’s Thunderclap

It is so easy. Once you click on the Thunderclap selections, Thunderclap will place the post / tweet for you on January 29th.

  1. Feather,
    Congrats on the book launch and thanks for the reminder e-mail. I downloaded it for Kindle (with Kindle Unlimited) and started reading it, and it is awesome so far. Is it not supposed to be out yet? Because it was right there on Amazon when I looked for it. I love the quote you put at the beginning. Happy IWSG Day and Happy 2017!

  2. Thunderclap is done, and I think I signed up for a copy and review. Things are all twisted this week, but yes, I’ll definitely support your tour. I’d love too, just let me know what and when and I’m there!
    Happy 2017!
