C.L. Wilson's The Crown of Crystal Flame is here!

Congratulations to C.L. Wilson for her new release, The Crown of Crystal Flame! (I love this cover!) This is the first release of hers by Avon.

A Song of Love won her heart.
A Song of Darkness haunted her soul.
A Song in the Dance would seal her fate.

Seers had long foreseen an extraordinary destiny for Ellysetta Baristani. Already she had won the heart of the Fey King—the magnificent Rain, ever her ally, eternally her love. She had saved the offspring of the magical tairen and fought beside her legendary mate against the armies of Eld. But the most powerful—and dangerous—Verse of her Song had yet to be sung. As the final battle draws nigh and evil tightens its grip upon her soul—will Ellysetta secure the world for Light or plunge it into Darkness for all eternity? As she and Rain fight for each other, side by side, will they find a way to complete their truemate bond and defeat the evil High Mage of Eld before it's too late, or must they make the ultimate sacrifice to save their world?

Here's a little of what people are saying about CROWN OF

“The highly anticipated conclusion to
Wilson’s impressive Tairen [Soul] series is everything fans could wish for ... A truly stellar achievement!”
~RT Book Reviews, 4 ½ Stars, Top Pick

“Great way to end a war and a series!”
~ Night Owl Reviews, 5 Stars, Top Pick

“A phenomenal ending to one of the best series I’ve ever read!”
~ Bitten By Paranormal Romance

“…a fantastic ending to an epic and sweeping fantasy romance”
~ The Book Pushers

“One of the best books I have read this year and more than a worthy ending for this terrific series.”

CRYSTAL FLAME C.L. Wilson has cemented herself among the greatest authors on my shelves ... I will love reading this series for the rest of my life!"
~ Leontine's Book Realm

“...a superb climax…”
~ Harriet Klausner, Genre Go Round Reviews

Chatelaines Happenings!

Wow, things are really happening with the Chatelaines. C.L. Wilson has her countdown to the release of Crown Of Crystal Flame going on. The release day is Oct 26. Hey that's tomorrow! Can't wait. Jennifer Ashley has Firewalker coming in November. Emily Bryan is making the move to Mia Marlowe in 2011 with her first release, A Touch Of A Thief. And I just sold a new western series to Berkley publishing. My series is called Angels End and the first book, Godsend, will be out in early 2012.

And I'm not the only one with a new contract. I'll let the other Chatelaines spill the beans on their news, just wanted to let you know that we are all working hard to continue to bring you great stories, in several different formats for your reading pleasure. And if we don't post that often, its because we're deep in deadline mode, which barely allows time for eating and sleeping.

Happy writing and reading!

Beautiful book covers I'm giving away

A reader reviewer made these gorgeous book covers to go with the Stormwalker series. I'm giving one away (with the book inside!) on my Firewalker countdown giveaway over at http://www.allysonjames.blogspot.com These are so beautiful!

I'm having fun with the giveaway thing, profiling a character from Firewalker each day. Drawing a winner for every post, then putting everyone in a pool for the grand prize.

Today's character profile: The Magic Mirror

Janet: "You're a mirror. You don't have body parts"
Mirror: "Hey, honey, I can dream."

He's a snarky, bisexual mirror with a drag queen drawl, but he's mega-powerful and plays an important role in each book. Janet couldn't do it without him (though she wishes she could).

Firewalker officially releases on November 2. I'm getting excited!

from Emily Bryan...

As you may know, I've moved to Kensington Publishing and a new pen name, MIA MARLOWE, but I'm still the same writer. If you haven't tried any of my books, here's your chance to sample one for FREE!

I love giving back to my readers. I'm tickled to share my debut Emily Bryan title. You can download the book from Kobo. For FREE!


The widowed Duchess of Southwycke mistakes Her Majesty’s agent for her next figure model. Trevelyn Deveridge never expected to pose naked to serve Queen and country, but he's left with little choice.

As long as he's there, he may as well drive the duchess . . . to distraction!

I love this story. Fortunately, reviewers did too. AllAboutRomance called it "a keeper!" It was nominated for an RT Reviewer's Choice Best K.I.S.S. and was a Colorado RWA Award of Excellence Finalist.

If you haven't read it, here's your chance. Kobo provides free ereader software for your laptop, ereader, tablet or phone!

If you've already read and enjoyed DISTRACTING THE DUCHESS, I hope you'll send a link for this post to your friends. Thanks so much!
