Here's How You Can be Part of the Fun!


It's promo time. I know I know, that means you get more emails from me than normal. I do try to make sure to include some awesome deals to make it worth your while though. No one wants to be hassled by a used car salesman.
(Apologies to any car sales men or women out there. We all have jobs to do. Hugs.)

Show of hands, who picked up that amazing boxed set deal last week?
Yay!!!
If you missed it, here's the link again.

Okay. Let's get down to business. This week I want to talk to you about ways you can have a big impact on a new book. Or really any book for that matter.
Reviews.
They can make or break a book. The more reviews a book has, the better it looks to consumers. The more reliable a purchase it is for readers who might be on the fence. And, this is the one that we authors struggle a lot with... Reviews can either qualify or disqualify us from securing advertising for our books. Most places require at minimum 10 reviews at 4 stars or better before they will allow your book to be advertised by their services.


A review does not have to be a book report. A review answers two simple questions.
1. Did you enjoy the book?
2. Would you recommend this book to others?

Pretty easy, right?

So, here is how you could help BEING ALPHA and get yourself a free read at the same time.
(See, I'm trying to make it worth your while.)


I have an awesome promotional coordinator helping me with all the release day craziness for the new book and she's curating a list of special readers to get a free ecopy of the new release before it is available to the public.

If you want to be on that list, click here

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdUIkBnzxRIEOp59VUkh6_B8BJhit7ZzcLd284Gje5AKL8KjA/viewform

Now, there are some guidelines. Reviews for the book will need to be done within two weeks of release day (August 1st). These reviews should be posted on either Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads.

There's a bonus too.
After your review is posted, you'll be eligible for another freebie from my backlist.
I love reviewers!! You guys are the best.

Okay so that is enough of my shilling for this week's newsletter. But, before I go, I do have some awesome books to share with you from some of my friends celebrating new releases.





༺❃༻DUPLICITY༺❃༻
by AJ Renee

Everyone leaves…

Jaime Lynn has lived by that mantra all of her life. After opening a pub in St. Fleur, she begins to root herself into the town and its community, questioning the only attitude she has ever known. When Jesse interviews for the open bartending position, she knows hiring him is a bad decision she’ll make anyway. Giving in to their powerful attraction, she accepts his invitation to explore what’s between them—and is reminded that not everyone gets their happily ever after.

Haunted by the memories around his hometown of New Orleans, Jesse leaves everyone he knows and loves, hoping to find a sliver of peace. Jaime Lynn turns out to be the light to his dark, bringing Jesse away from his nightmares and back to his hopes and dreams.

When the truth comes out, Jesse and Jaime Lynn agree to give their relationship another try. The stars finally align, guiding them onto a new path where they can leave their past behind them.

What will they do when Jesse learns about the gift he never received but always wanted?

Being Alpha releases on August 1st.

#CoverReveal Being Alpha by Katie Salidas



I've been dying to tell you all about this newest installment to the Olde Town Pack collection of books. 

It started with the Immortalis series where you met Fallon.
She took you on an adventure in becoming a wolf of the Olde Town Pack.
Then, in the Little Werewolf series you learned about Giselle and her link to the proud Silverman wolves.
Now, watch as the Silverman wolves and the Olde Town Pack join forces to discover who has been poisoning the minds of other territorial Alphas

So what's the new book about?

Newly-Minted Regional Alpha, Aeson Silverman hit the jackpot. Power, prestige, and wealth, he’s got everything a wolf-shifter could ask for. 
Or so he thought… 
Being the Alpha is not the playboy lifestyle he’d imagined.
Despite devastatingly good looks and an impressive wit, he can’t seem to get Emma MacBride, the hottie doctor from another pack, to give him the time of day.
Unfortunately a bruised ego is only the beginning of Aeson’s troubles. 
Someone has been poisoning the minds of other territorial Alphas, systematically pitting neighbor against neighbor. And the moment Ace takes control of the Long Teeth territory the rising storm of dissension finds a way into his pack. 
Allying himself with the powerful Olde Town pack, Ace chooses camaraderie over aggression and invites warring neighbors to join him for a meeting to establish peace.
Diplomacy comes with a reward earning him a date with the elusive doctor MacBride. 
But every choice the young Alpha makes is under scrutiny and when his peaceful summit ends with the death of a high ranking wolf, the fate of his pack and his leadership hangs in the balance. 

How about we sweeten the deal?

And because I just can't wait, here's an exclusive first look at what's happening in the wolfy world. Grab your coffee and enjoy this sample chapter.



Sample Chapter
Copyright ©2017 by Katie Salidas

“Please tell me no one died while I was away,” Ace joked as he entered his study and found his brother sitting at his desk, reading a stack of papers.
“Not yet, but the day is still young,” Jay replied without looking up.
“I’m concerned with Tito’s group. He wasn’t very happy about this meeting to begin with.” Ace strolled over and gazed down at the documents littering his desk.
Whether on instinct or because he had finished, Jay set down his reading, stood and offered the chair to Ace. “Kept it warm for you. How was the date?”
“She is the kind of girl that makes you work for it.” Ace chuckled to himself. Emma was in a class all her own when it came to ball-busting ladies. But admitting defeat to his brother was never going to happen. He took his seat and glanced at the documents Jay had just finished with; correspondence from Leif’s pack. “Their emissary plans to be fashionably late, I take it.”
“They appear to be happy he’s out of power and his mate Nikita wants to take on leadership herself. They don’t have any living heirs.” Jay walked around the desk and took the chair opposite of Ace. “You want my opinion?”
“Always, brother.”
“Work for it. You won’t find another Emma anytime soon. And before you know it, she’ll be back on the road across country.”
“I meant about the Canadian wolves.” Ace glared at his brother.
“I’m not even qualified to advise on that. That’s why it’s so awesome that you’re the Alpha here and not me.” Jay stretched out in the chair, kicking up his feet on the corner of the desk. “But don’t stress it too much. You have a whole council of Alphas here to determine what the right course of action is.”
“You’re just as qualified as I am,” He swatted at Jay’s feet, “And if something were to happen to me, guess who takes the lead, brother?”
“Never. Going. To. Happen!”
Ace glared at his brother’s feet still resting on the desk. “If Dad ever saw you do that, he’d have you cleaning the bathrooms with your tongue.”
Jay’s face reddened he quickly sat right in the chair. “Never want to do that again.”
“See. And Dad was originally a second son… like you.” Ace wagged an eyebrow as an exclamation to the point. “Speaking of. Let’s bring in Orion and Mom. We should at least be unified on the point before we go before the council.”
“What point?” Jay squinted as if straining to bring his mind on point. “You think they will have a problem with you dating Emma?”
“We’re not talking about Emma,” Ace responded with a growl of frustration.
“Too much wolf for you?”
“We have more important issues to discuss. Why are you so hung up on her? You think you have a chance with her?”
“Oh she did get under your skin. Poor Ace. Is that a bruised ego? Need mommy to kiss it better?”
“Look you want your twenty. Take it. You won the bet. I’m not playing this stupid game when we have real problems to deal with.”
“Relax, bro. I’m just messing with you. I didn’t realize it was a sore subject.”
 “Emma is the least of my worries at the moment.” Ace pushed the intercom button on his desk phone. “Find mom, Orion, and Richard and send them into the office.”
Jay snickered under his breath and tried to cover it with a fake cough.
“What?” Ace demanded.
“Dude, you can’t call her mom in public. She is Vivian Silverman to all but us. Nothing says baby boy like calling her mom in a council meeting.”
“Screw you,” Ace grumbled.
“You know I’m right. And how would Emma see it, you calling on your mommy for help?”
“What the hell man? I thought you were on my side?” His brother’s taunting had nearly sent him over the edge.
“Just playing with you. Damn. Lighten up a little.”
“Normally, your crap wouldn’t bother me, but seeing as how this is all my first official acts as Alpha, Shit’s got to go well. Stress is at eleven right now. I don’t have–”
“Seriously. Chill. I’m sorry. “Jay’s expression softened. He held his hands out in surrender.
 “I thought a little good natured ribbing would be cool.”
His brother’s sense of timing was terrible. “Until this is over, pretend to be an adult, okay?”
Jay laughed.
A moment later the door to the study opened and Peter poked his head in. “Shall I let them in?”
