Top Five. . .

We’re halfway through. It’s been fun looking at the big things that have happened in our lives over the past year. Thanks for sharing yours with me. You guys ROCK.

Number THREE:

I got an agent!

<———-NO, not THAT kind of agent.

A literary agent!———————————->

You might remember the post (THE CALL) detailing the fun, crazy, and exciting time I had last January that led to signing with Cari Foulk at Tribe Literary Agency.

*whew* That was very exciting.

The road to publication is a bit curvy, hilly, but for the most part, really awesome. I’m having a blast, and I’m glad Cari’s along for the ride!

~~~

So, what’s your number THREE?

~~~

Catch the Rush . . .

WOW!

It’s been an awesome week having my characters host the blog.

Thanks, Ashley, Trinity, Dakota, Rachel, and David for hanging with us!

And now, I get to have fun giving away a sweet prize–A $25.00 gift card to one of my favorite places—Barnes and Noble.

So . . .

Let’s get on with it, right?

The winner is  . . . LBDiamond.

Thanks, everyone. Have a great weekend.

Stay tuned to Catch the Rush for more contests/drawings in the near future!!

Heaven’s Fire

Hey, everyone. Ashley here. I was totally honored when Lynn asked me to lead off the week of her new blog design.

But then again, I knew she was going to pick me—I mean, I do have telepathy…Heck, I even know what you’re thinking right now.

Just kidding.

I was on this blog once back when it was called Light of Truth, but now it’s all redesigned and even has a new name.

Catch the Rush…sounds fun if you ask me.

But then again, Lynn is known for her wicked-fast novel writing, long—but fast—bike rides, and if I remember correctly, she once was a competitive inline speed skater.

Guess the Catch the Rush theme is accurate, after all…

I’ve even heard rumors that a few publishing houses are looking at a couple of her projects. So maybe someday you’ll be catching one of Lynn Rush’s books on the shelves.

You just never know . . .

Yesterday I was reading the opening chapter of Heaven’s Fire. First, let me just say–it’s weird, but totally cool, reading a book about yourself!

But back to my post . . . In the opening scene, me and my sister Britt were sitting in a bar, minding our own business, when this chick stumbles in, bleeding, and two wicked-strong demons come in after her. She rams into the juke box, interrupting a Kenny Chesney song playing.

I remember that night perfectly because it was the first night I met Nicholas (but that’s for another post. . . ) Anyway, me and Britt got into a brutal fight with those demons (yes, we kicked their butts), but I never got to hear that song all the way through.

So I thought I’d throw it up here for ya since Lynn usually talks about music on Mondays. Let’s just hope no demons show up and ruin the song again.

OKAY, on to the contest reminder. Leave a comment on the post today so you’re entered in the drawing for the $25.00 gift card! If you missed the details of the contest yesterday, CLICK HERE, and read up. I’d hate for you to miss the chance to win $25.00!

I’ll add to the pot a little: Leave a comment here, THEN click on HEAVEN’S FIRE listed under MY NOVELS over on the left sidebar and leave a comment there, too. Then I’ll tell Lynn to enter your name again into the hat for the drawing.

That means TWO entries for today.

Good luck!! And thanks for stoppin’ by. Stay tuned for tomorrow when we get to hear from Trinity. First person I’ve ever met who had wings and wasn’t a wicked-mean demon.

Win a gift card

Big changes to the blog begin Monday the 14th!!

My characters are taking over for the week, introducing a new blog look, talking music, movies, and fun stuff.

Should make for an interesting Throwback Thursday segment since a few of my characters are over 400 years old. . . .

Anyway, to celebrate the changes, I’m running a little contest this week (14th-18th).

Here are the deets:

Grand Prize: $25.00 Barnes and Noble gift card.

Anyone who leaves a comment on any of this week’s posts starting Monday the 14th through Friday the 18th is entered!

Yep, that means if you leave a comment every day this week on the posts my characters put up, you’ll be entered five times in the drawing.

***Oh, but there’s more***

If you want an EXTRA entry in the drawing all you have to do is subscribe to the  blog. See where it says “Subscribe via email” on the left hand side there? That’s where you do it. Anyone who subscribes to the blog Monday the 14th-Friday the 18th will get an extra entry in the pot for the drawing.

***Okay, ONE more way to get an extra entry***

To earn another EXTRA entry in the drawing, come join my fan page. You can click the link here, or on the left side there you’ll see the badge “Visit my Page.” Click that and you’re there. I think they changed it to say, “LIKE” instead of “JOIN”, but whichever, anyone who joins between Monday the 14th through Friday the 18th will get an extra entry in the drawing.

Soooooo…….

If I’m doing my math right. . . you could have a chance to be entered up to SEVEN times for the $25.00 gift card! Pretty sweet odds if you think about it.

And you never know, my fun characters might put up chances for you to get extra entries, as well, in their posts….they’re kind of unpredictable you know? I mean, half-demons, tiny people with wings, telepaths….just never know what you’re gonna get with them!

Winner will be announced Saturday June 19th

So, I hope you join me for a fun-filled week celebrating the launch of  my new blog design and hanging with a few of my characters.

Now for the fun part: The rules/guidelines/general boring information I have to share when I do a contest. I’m not associated with Barnes and Noble in any way. They didn’t give me the card to give away. I just really like them and since I’m a writer/reader, I figured I’d give that away as a prize. Winners must reside in the continental US. When the winner is announced on SATURDAY the 19th, he/she must contact me. If he/she doesn’t contact me within 30 days, the prize is forfeited. I’ll count one comment per post toward the entries. You can comment as much as you want, but only one will go toward the drawing. Just the comments  on the characters posts  will be counted–so no going to every page on the site to put a comment, although you’re more than welcome to, they just won’t be counted in the drawing as an entry. Ultimately, this is all in good fun, so play nice, okay?
