Chained By Night has been getting fabulous reviews, including a 4 1/2 star review from Romantic Times and a stellar writeup from Kirkus Reviews, and the newest review has just come in from Publisher's Weekly, and it's a STARRED review, saying Chained By Night "deftly uses a mixture of complex rivalries, primal violence, and sex to portray a society in which frequent vampire enslavement provokes a civil-rights dispute…Ione’s characters are relatable and sympathetic both because of and despite their id-drenched setting, and Ione’s flavor of vampirism produces a fascinating mixture of authoritarianism, atavism, and compassionate humanity that works on multiple levels.” Yay!

I'm so happy to announce that Rogue Rider is on the shelves! It, and the entire Lords of Deliverance series, was also featured on Good Morning Texas as a suggested series for Twilight fans. Adult Twilight fans. *g* I'm also excited to let everyone know that for a limited time, the first book in the series, Eternal Rider, is available in ebook format for $2.99. So if you've been waiting to try the series, now's the time!

Well, in the last year or so it's become very apparent that my time is becoming more and more limited for anything outside of writing. Family time has suffered, my health has suffered, and I've really felt crushed under the weight of all my responsibilities. So I decided that some things have to go. My blog is one of them.
So….as you can see, my website has been updated, and the blog has been removed. I now have only a "news" page that I'll update when something important happens. I will also use it to host the occasional contest as well.
I sincerely hope you all understand. I have to put my family and my writing before anything else, so the cutting back is necessary. I'll keep up on sending newsletters a couple of times a year for updates, and I tend to post fairly frequently on Facebook since it's so simple and fast.
Anyway, that's the latest news until Rogue Rider releases next month! Happy Halloween, everyone!
