FREE Advanced Copies of Repressed UP FOR GRABS, giveaways, and book-related penis jokes

Holy cow, you guys. I have a doozy of an offer for you today. Let’s get right into it.


Repressed, the 3rd book in the Ash Park series is coming out in December, but if you can’t wait for December, guess what? YOU DON’T HAVE TO. Yep, that’s right, I’m giving out 50 advanced review copies of Repressed far in advance of the release.* Why am I doing this? Because I NEED REVIEWS ON AMAZON LIKE KAHL DROGO NEEDS TO GET IN MY BEDROOM. I also need your help spreading the word about the book.

Here’s my plan:

1) For you, awesome reader, to leave your reivew of Conviction on Amazon HERE if you haven’t already (because obviously you want to have read Conviction before you read Repressed.)
2) Next, sign up below and devour your advanced copy of Repressed before December 13 so that you can leave a review the day the book drops!
3) Finally, you fiery book-reading bundle of fantastic, help me spread the BUZZ about Repressed on social media in the days surrounding the release.

So who’s ready to help me spread Ash Park to the masses? Just click here to receive your e-copy.

**first come, first serve, and please do me a favor and leave an Amazon review for Conviction prior to receiving Repressed! Thanks so much! I appreciate you.


Last week, Kelly Watley won a pair of books from best-selling author Andra Watkins: To Live Forever, and Hard to Die WHICH IS AVAILABLE TODAY on Amazon. Go over there and snag yourself a copy now!

But if you didn’t win that one, FEAR NOT! Because I’ve got another giveaway happening TODAY through the wonderously talented Kristen Mae. CLICK HERE and enter to win a signed copy of Famished AND Conviction. (And if you haven’t visited me on my page yet, feel free to come on over. I rarely bite.)


For anyone who wants a sneak peek into what it’s like to be married to me, this week, I asked a girlfriend to take a look at Repressed. She made it as far as the copyright page before she called me and said, “Are you sure your husband is okay with you mentioning his penis in your book?”

The passage in question isn’t raunchy and the thought had honestly not occurred to me, as it is rarely something that comes up in author discussions. So I sent my husband a text that read: “Hey, honey. Can I talk about your penis in my novel?”

He replied: “Sure! You need a picture, or…?”

He’s clearly very shy. And humble. Also, totally my soulmate based on his personal level of  “don’t give a shit.”

Don’t worry, I did not include any images here or in the book itself. He’s not Anthony Weiner. (And really, could that guy possibly have a more perfect name? It’s like an author of some ridiculous political crime novel got drunk and had a field day. Talk about repressed.)

Anyway…today I will leave you with the official copyright/disclaimer section for Repressed. Enjoy.

Hopefully, you are one of the lucky 50 who will be diving into the rest of Repressed at the end of the week!
