Summer is Heating Up!

While Jmo swelters way down south, and I melt under Alaska's impression of a summer, things have been getting busy behind the scenes. So much so, we've neglected our blogging duties.

I can assure you, Jmo has been writing up a storm! Yes, he's been chained to his laptop, writing so furiously he hasn't even had time for my FaceBook jokes. That's sad. BUT, you will be the beneficiaries, as his Love Bites series continues on in it's fast-paced hilarious style. Besides, you have to check out his covers. Original art by the incredibly talented Nik Rainieri. It's awesome. The next one, Book Five: Lovership of the Stake comes out August 1.

As for me, the other Morgan, I've been editing like crazy. Not only my work, but I've been editing on the side, as a way to keep my mind sharp. That and people seem to think I know what I'm doing. Hey, as long as it gets me a little cash and more books, I'm willing to give my opinion in the formative stages. Whether they like my opinion or not doesn't matter. I'll do almost anything for free books. Now I just need the time to read them.
Which leads me to my next topic. MY next release. Yep, I got one. And I've been lazy about promoting it. So here it is:

Releasing Monday, July 18, 2011, Til Death Undo Us: Book One of the Open Windows Series. Manic Readers gave it a 4.5 star review already!

And here's the even cooler part, Book 2, Courage to Live is in edits for a February release! Book 3 is started. That's all I'm going to say on that one, but it should be out sometime next spring.

In other Coming Soon News, my alter-ego, Shea McMaster has a new release going through final edits as we speak. Rachel Dahlrumple, a full length Romantic Suspense is coming out this November. Keep an eye on that link, the blurb and excerpt will follow in the coming weeks. You can get a first peek at the beautiful cover there.

So, you think that's enough stuff happening? No way! There's more!

Due to the popularity of the Temp Tat from my last post, I've created a line of products for those who want to show off their love of eBooks. Or rather, books in general. If the Get Some Tonight heart makes you smile, share the happiness. Yes, you can get mugs, apparel, mouse pad, apron, magnet, or even a key chain with not only the Get Some Tonight logo, but some other doodling I've been doing, at my Zazzle store. Some of these items might even become prizes or give aways somewhere down the line.

NOTE: One little caveat. Just a teeny tiny thing. In order to see the Get Some Tonight items, you have to be set up to see PG-13 sites. There are a couple G-Rated items, but most are PG-13.

In the mean time, I'm handing out temp tats and bookmarks like CRAZY. A bunch are headed for the Midwest Fiction Writers Fall Harvest Workshop with Margie Lawson this coming September. You lucky ducks! I had so much fun last year and wish I could go again.

Okay. NOW I'm done. So much to do! So much happening! So little time to do it all! When the reading bug bites, we hope you think of us, The Morgans.
