New Reviews & Awards for Fire and Ash

January was a fantastic month! Fire and Ash received a Four Star review from Romantic Times, and a couple of Five Star reviews over at GoodReads. It also won Love Romances Cafe’s ‘Best of 2010’’s award for Best Suspense/Mysery and it placed 6th in P & E’s ‘Best Mystery/Suspense. How awesome is that! I want to thank everyone who voted for it. Your support is very much appreciated!!!

If you haven’t purchased it yet, you can pick up a copy at (where it’s the #1 bestselling suspense ebook), my publisher, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.

Since it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything personal I thought I’d bring you up to date on current and upcoming projects. Are ya ready? Okay, here we go. My short story, Dangerous Deception, will be coming out in March in a Mystery/Suspense Anthology by Victory Tales Press. My full-length novel, A Familiar Evil, will release in May. Then come November, Kill Shot, the first book in my ‘Wounded Heroes Series', will be released. This five-book series is under contract with Desert Breeze Publishing, and is my first multi-book sale. Yaay! I’m in the process of getting to know all my characters now. And what an interesting bunch they are. This venture is quite a challenge to me because as a panster I never plot anything. So I won’t drive myself nuts keeping up with everyone, and who did what to whom, I’ve decided to be more organized (if that’s possible) and come up with a basic outline for each book. Wish me luck. I’m going to need it.

I don’t remember if I mentioned it or not but beginning in March I’m going to a new format here on my blog. Instead of weekly author interviews, I’ll have an ‘Author of the Month’. I’ll start with an interview, different than my usual, and in the following weeks you’ll have the chance to learn more about the author and their books. Also, for those who post comments throughout the month, you’ll have a chance to win a copy of one of their books. Cool, eh?

If you’re an author who is interested in participating in my monthly spotlight, drop me a line via the contact form on my website or email me at: annepatrick07[at]yahoo[dot]com. You don’t have to write mystery or suspense, but I would prefer only sweet to slightly sensual romances please.

Have you entered my Valentine Kindle Giveaway yet? Time is running out. For complete details of the giveaway, click on the Kindle in the sidebar.

In closing, I want to thank you all for your kind comments and emails. I appreciate each of you.
