Guys! The Devil You Know is FREE for the next few days! Plus! The rest of the series is on sale AND an excerpt from Dance With the Devil!

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO FIGHT FIRE WITH FIRE.

Following a drunken night together, the vampire Michael “Vegas” Tremayne takes off with no explanation, leaving Deziree Davanzati to wonder if they’d made a terrible mistake. Rather than obsess about it, Dez spends most of her time at Onyx, the rock club she owns and operates for the supernatural citizens of New York City. All are welcome-werewolves, witches, and anyone else willing to play nice while under her roof and pay their tab at the end of the night.

After two weeks of radio silence, Vegas returns with alarming news. For the first time in more than four centuries, there is reason to believe a pureblood demon is walking among them. They suspect someone from the the Council may be behind the creature’s return, but to what end?

With the Sentinel Stone missing, they’re down to the wire and don’t know who to trust. Will Dez and Vegas stop the demon in time? Or will Hell itself be unleashed upon the world?

Speak of the Devil, Facebook sucks, my newsletter, TWO giveaways, paperbacks, and a face lift.

Good evening, minions!! Holy hell. I thought I didn’t have enough to say to warrant a whole blog post, but here we go!

FACE LIFT
As some of you cyber stalkers out there may have seen it already, but I have been doing a little update to my site. What do you think?? I was updating my About The Author section and decided the whole website really looked like it was put together by a troop of men suffering from testosterone poisoning, so, I decided to fix it. Girly it up a bit. Not too much, because that’s really not me, but enough to let everyone know that I have woman bits.

 

NEWSLETTER
Along with the little face lift project, I decided to start a newsletter. It might be once a week, it might be once a month. I’m not sure yet. The newsletter will contain my book news (obvi), but it’s going to contain lots of other fun stuff. There will be a section of hilarity called Interwebz Gold, in which I will post something positively ridiculous and funny that I find in my adventures on the web. There will also be giveaways and contests exclusive to the newsletter subscribers (I wont be posting them anywhere else). Exclusive content and deleted scenes. Birthday shout outs and little gifties to the subscribers. A ‘What I’m Reading’ section with micro-reviews. Plus some other stuff I am still working out. I have a long list of things I would like to include, I just have to cut it down a bit.

 

 

NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIBER GIVEAWAY!!!!
Everyone who signs up for the newsletter between now and September 30, 2014 @ 11:59pm EST will be entered to win 1 of 10 signed and personalized paperbacks of The Devil You Know, the first installment in the Demon Legacy series. Share this sign up form!! If we hit more than 200 subscribers, I will up the count to 20 paperbacks!!!

 

ANOTHER NEWSLETTER SUBSCRIBER GIVEAWAY!!!
The winners of the paperbacks will be announced here in the newsletter, along with the newsletter’s new name! Got a suggestion for the name??? Email it to me at jmgregoirebooks@gmail.com, and if I pick your suggestion, and can confirm you are also subscribed to the newsletter, you get a $20 Amazon gift card!

 

 

FACEBOOK SUCKS AND WHY I AM STARTING THE NEWSLETTER
(Authors and bloggers should both read this….)
It’s no secret that Facebook is the root of all evil. We’re all addicted to it, and, I dont have proof, but I’m pretty sure The Devil was on the Facebook masthead. (*I’m kidding, of course, but hear me out*) If you have a Facebook fan page, I’m sure you’ve felt the frustration which comes with having thousands of “likes”, and only reaching 100 people when you post something. It’s irritating. I have bitched about it, but, in the end, Facebook is a business, and they have to make money. The only way to reach more followers is to post every 15 minutes (more likes/comments = more exposure, but who has time for that?!?) OR pay out the ass. The problem I have with that is I have spent the “lots of dollars” (esurance?) with Facebook and got NEARLY NOTHING in return. No change. I have a little over 2,300 people who have liked my fan page and whenever I post news, the number of people who usually see it is about 87 (Odd number, right? It’s come up tons of times on my posts!). I decided the best way to get the news out to my readers is to have them join my newsletter. Then Facebook can go fuck themselves. I will still post my news on there and still be active on there, but with a newsletter, the chances of my readers missing something important is MUCH lower.

So….

THE DEVIL YOU KNOW PAPERBACKS
Today I submitted the final files for the paperback version of The Devil You Know and these will be available for sale on Amazon and my site (payment via PayPal). However, signed copies are only available through giveaways and at events. So, if you want yours signed, you should come see me at a live event or sign up for my newsletter. (See what I did there?) I will let everyone know the second they are live.

 

 

AND FINALLY, SPEAK OF THE DEVIL…
I know you’ve heard it several times now, but Speak of the Devil is almost done. Officially. It’s written in full and now I am just doing some tweaking. With the holiday weekend, I have 3 days of writing time. I am hoping to bang out the rest of what I have to get done on my self-editing to-do list this weekend. Then it goes out to betas, then my editor. Once I have it back from the editor, I will be deciding on my release date. So, stay tunes (OR GO SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER!!!)

 

 

You will all hear from me real soon. The second I hit save on my final change in Speak, you better believe all of social media will be flooded with me freaking out.

I love you all and thank you so much for your undying support. You’re rockstars, for realsies!

NEWS: **** A FEW IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENTS ****

Good evening, everyone! I am announcing this everywhere at once in hope to not miss anyone. I have been pretty quiet in regards to the upcoming release of Speak of the Devil (Demon Legacy #2), and that’s because it’s not going to be ready for May 27th. Due to this, I am moving my release date out to June 17th.

On top of shifting my release date, I will also be re-releasing The Devil You Know (Demon Legacy #1) all shined up, nice and sparkly clean! TDYK will be re-releasing on June 3rd.

What up, bitches?!?!?!?

It’s been a while since I did any sort of real check in, so I figured, what better time than now!

I have been busy on so many fronts it is ridiculous!

First, The Devil You Know is still holding strong on the charts. It’s dropped a little bit, but not too much. As of right now, it is STILL on the best seller list for its genre, so THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!!! The book is doing so much better than I had ever imagined!!!

Second, Speak of the Devil is officially a work in progress!!! I started writing little bits here and there a few weeks ago, and now I am writing more and more. I am going to put in some serious laptop time this weekend and again next weekend. I am hoping (you can’t see it but I am knocking on wood right now) to have a first draft complete by the end of October. The plan is to have the first round of editing done in November, at which point I will decide on a firm release date.

Third, I organized an urban fantasy/paranormal short story anthology! The anthology will be titled The Stroke of Midnight: A Supernatural New Year’s Anthology.  We have a total of 19 authors including myself. Those 19 authors will turn out a total of 18 UF/P short stories (one of the stories is co-written between 2 authors) that all take place on New Year’s Eve. I have included a graphic here so you can see the list of authors. My short story will actually be the as-yet-untitled Demon Legacy #1.5. The story will take place between The Devil You Know (DL#1) and Speak of the Devil (DL #2).

Fourth (this list is getting a little wordy, yeah?), I will be sure to post the link once it’s live but… I am participating in the All Hallows Eve Indies Tour – a tour for urban fantasy and paranormal romance authors to celebrate the best holiday ever – HALLOWEEN. On one of the two stops I am the feature for, the blogger (Little Read Riding Hood) and I are co-writing a short story. It has nothing to do with the Demon Legacy series, but it’s going to be super fun!

That’s about it for now. I will be swinging by the Facebook page more often as I write, so feel free to hit me up here or there.

Talk to you all again soon!

Deziree Davanzatti is a thief by trade and to keep herself occupied between jobs, she owns and operates Onyx, a trendy nightclub for the supernatural citizens of New York City.

What else would a 400-something year old demon-human hybrid do with her spare time?

Following a drunken night of questionable decisions, the vampire Michael “Vegas” Tremayne leaves town with no explanation. Dez is left wondering if they made a mistake and if it cost her a price she wasn’t willing to pay – her best friend and confidant.

When he returns after two weeks of no contact, he comes bearing grave news that could potentially change the world forever….or end it all together. To make matters worse, they suspect that someone they know may be behind it all.

An extremely dangerous chain of events has been set in motion and it is up to Dez and Vegas, with the help of his brother Lucas, to find a way to stop it.

From the author of Burning, the short story prequel, comes The Devil You Know, the first full length novel in the Demon Legacy series by J.M. Gregoire.

EXCERPT:

The time seemed to pass quickly. Deziree had taken a second to pan around the room and felt the mild pangs of disappointed when she didn’t see Vegas anywhere. She took a look over the main bar and realized that some of the bottles were getting a low.

“Hey Danni,” she called to the bartender, “I’m going to take a break on the roof. When I get back, I will run out back and grab some refills.”

As she stepped out of the roof-access door onto the flat expanse of building, Deziree opened her pack of cigarettes, took one out, put it to her lips and lit it. She could feel his presence as she took her first drag. She exhaled and smiled when she heard his voice behind her.

“Those are bad for you, you know.”

When she spun around, he was standing a few paces away.

“Hey you.” As Deziree gazed at Vegas, her smile didn’t attenuate. Besides the fact that he was her best friend, she loved to look at him. He was by far the most beautiful creature she’d laid eyes on in her extraordinarily long life. He was stereotypically hot guy. Tall, dark and every bit of him was dangerous. He was six-two or three, the top of his smooth, bald head towering above her. She couldn’t imagine the number of razors he’d gone through over the centuries to keep that look. He had the perfectly chiseled appearance of a deadly hunter. Most people would have to spend hours in the gym every day for a body like that, but his undead status meant he didn’t even have to try. He would look like that forever. His eyes were the only tell-tale sign that he was a vampire. Those irises – each a pure gleaming gold with a dark-brown ring bordering the edge – were the only giveaway to the general public of what he was. She, on the other hand, could feel it. She could feel the electricity crackle in the air whenever her was around. In more than four hundred years, she had never met someone as exciting as Vegas, and she wanted him from the moment they first met. Why did we fight it?

“Can I bum one off you?” He nodded his head toward the cigarettes.

“You would make a terrible spokesperson for anti-smoking public service announcements,” she replied with a snarky tone. As she fumbled with the pack of cigarettes, he stepped closer to her. Her nerves hummed.

With a predatory smile that revealed his intentions, he closed what little remaining space there was between them. Reaching his hand around the back of her neck and tilting her head, he brought his lips down to meet hers. Her head spun with euphoria. His scent washed away every negative thought she’d had about him in the last two weeks. When the kiss finally broke, it was not her doing. Taking a deep breath, she opened her eyes to see that he had that his smile had grown wicked.

“You didn’t answer me on the phone,” he purred. “Did you miss me?”

“Well, with the harem of men I have at my disposal, I couldn’t find the time to miss someone I only had a little fling with.” She stepped back and with a smirk, she added, “I mean, I didn’t even get breakfast.”

Vegas dropped his gaze. “I honestly am sorry about that. I don’t want you to get the wrong idea. I had a fantastic time and I didn’t want to leave, but I was contracted at the last minute and it was time-sensitive.”

Deziree smiled. “I’m just fucking with you, Michael. I’m not mad. I mean, I was initially. But I figured something must have happened. A call or a text would have been nice, but shit happens, right?”

“Well,” he said, his wicked grin firmly in place and his eyebrow cocked, “let me make it up to you.”

“We’ll see about that,” she replied as her heart pounded in her chest.

“I can hear your heart racing.” Stepping forward, he leaned down and kissed her again. When he broke away again, she found herself wishing that she didn’t have to go back to work. He leaned his forehead on hers and whispered, “My place when you get out?”

“Sure,” was her quick breathy reply.

“I have a few things to take care of,” he said quietly, “and then I will meet you here around the time you guys usually lock up.”

She nodded in response, and he turned, walked to the edge of the roof and dropped off the side. After standing there for a few moments in a daze, she finished her cigarette and headed back through the roof-access door to finish her shift.

BREAKING NEWS: The Devil You Know is being updated!!!

It was brought to my attention today that the ebook versions of The Devil You Know had a coding error during formatting, resulting in some missing pieces in the book.  They’re small but they count.  My editor/ebook formatter and I are working right now to correct the error and get it reloaded to the site.  TDYK may go down for a short period of time on Amazon.  When it comes back up, those who have already purchased the book should get a notification of an update to the book.  You can get this update free of charge.

I apologize for the inconvenience.  We are making this as quick as possible!  🙂

The Devil You Know is LIVE on Amazon and Kobo and I haven’t had a heart attack yet!!!

I think I might be in shock or something…

Somewhere near noontime today, The Devil You Know went live.

ebookcover72dpi

As in it’s published.

It’s actually published.

THE DEVIL YOU KNOW IS PUBLISHED. 

On both Amazon and Kobo.

Yep, doesn’t matter how many times I say it, it’s just not sinking in.  Not to mention the shaking.  Oh yeah, as soon as I saw it was live, I started shaking.  My editor/friend Rachel told me it was from too much caffeine.  To her credit, this could be true since my breakfast consisted of two large coffees and about four bites of a breakfast sandwich.  However, I am happy to report that I finally ate something good and the shaking has stopped. 

It has been a LONG road to getting this book published—approximately seven years and the publishing of an unexpected/unplanned prequel, actually.  It’s been a crazy ride and I think some part of me thought I would never make it to this day.  To that part of me, I flip the bird.  I did it. 

And here I am.

THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone that has supported me on this!!  You people are just fucking awesome.  It means the world to me, I swear. 

TDYK’s ‘Customers Who Bought This Also Bought…’ section of right now is frikkin awesome.  I am in some pretty damn good company!!!

 So far, the reception has been good!  I am super excited to see what everyone else thinks!!! 

I am out of here for a good portion of the evening!  I have a drink date with some friends to celebrate tonight!  I will be back in at some point to see where things stand (aka obsess over the fact that I can’t see my Amazon rating yet!)

Thank you ALL SO MUCH for your continued support!!!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!  THANK YOU!
