It's been an amazing week and it's all thanks to you! Yes, you! Give yourselves a big pat on the back because Blood Bath is a best selling Horror and Dark Fantasy novel on Amazon. Not only that but both the box set and Blood Bath are Amazon Hot New Releases! You have all been busy spreading the word about The Maurin Kincaide Series and I can't thank you enough! You all rock my socks off! <3
Book five, as of yet untitled, is already plotted out. I've given myself a few days off to promote Blood Bath but I can't wait to get back to writing. Honestly, it's weird not being holed up in my writer's cave typing away on my tablet. I've got the itch and I need to scratch it. I'll be sure to post a few samples once I've put words on the pages!
It still blows my mind that people are reading my stories and loving my characters. They're like children. You create them, watch the grow and develop and then send them out into the world - all the while hoping people will love them as much as you do. So I thank you, Maurin, Conry, Aidan, Cash and Mason thank you! There's more in store for Salem and the council. Stay tuned!

I've got good news and bad news. Which do you want first? Ok, bad news. I'm not going to make release day tomorrow. I was super late getting the book to my editor and even if I stay up all night it's not going to happen. I had this whole My Bloody Valentine thing going on in my mind and I really, really wanted to deliver. It just wasn't meant to be. "HeadDesk" doesn't even begin to describe my disappointment in myself. Now, for the good news. Blood Bath will only be delayed by a couple of days and according to my editor it is worth waiting for! You deserve the best book I can produce, not a half-ass book because I wanted it out tomorrow. I'll keep you all updated on the progress. I'm working on it as I type this! Don't give up on me yet. With love~ Rachel

I can't believe it's less than 48 hours until I can share Blood Bath with all of you! I am really excited about this one. I know I say that with each one but I swear, this is the best one yet! I can't wait for all of you to read it. Don't forget the first three books in the series are all on sale in a box set for only $0.99 the whole month of February. It's a great way to catch up before release day.
February 20th I'll be spending the day with Bitten By Books, answering questions and talking about the series- and anything else you all want to chat about. I'll also be selecting one Kindle and one Nook winner for a $50.00 gift card to their respective online stores! Be sure to go to www.bittenbybooks.com to register for the event. It's going to be so much fun! Hope to "see" you there!
The city that never sleeps has stolen my heart! Again! I was there over the weekend for the first time since January 2013. I got to take the subway this time, which I love by the way. In less than thirty-six hours I visited, the theater district, SoHo, Chelsea, Tribeca, Greenwich Village, and a few other places. I reconnected with family I hadn't seen in over eight years. Pitched an unbelievably cool idea that looks like it's going to be green-lighted, drank lots of coffee and of course lots of wine, lol! Spent a little time with my mom while she was working backstage doing hair at Fashion Week and even made a new friend. It was a great two days! As fun as all of that was, none of it came close to topping my trip to Barnes and Noble on 5th Avenue. I still can't believe my books are their on the shelves or that I was able to autograph them! It was and still is surreal. I haven't come down from cloud nine yet! It's only half way through February and already this year has been unbelievable. I can't wait to see what the rest of the year has in store.

I'll leave you with an early Valentine's Day present until I get back. For the month of February I've put the first three books in The Maurin Kincaide series into a box set. Amazing right? Well it gets better! It's only $0.99! I'm still waiting for the Nook buy link, but in the meantime here's the Kindle link http://amzn.to/1bUZEOv. Books make a great Valentine, no one has to know you only spent $0.99. ;) It'll be our secret.
I'm going to be hanging out with Bitten By Books on February 20th all day talking about Blood Bath and the rest of the series and I'm giving away two $50 gift cards, one for Amazon and one for Barnes and Noble. The box set is a great way to catch up before the online event. Don't miss out on the fun! www.bittenbybooks.com
One of my New Year's resolutions was to be better at blogging. I'm not off to the best start. But hopefully after the release date I'll be able to post more frequently. In the meantime, don't do or read anything that I wouldn't. That leaves you with a lot of options, believe me! ;)
Talk to you soon.
