Moving My Blog to Wordpress


Thanks for finding me here. I decided to move my website and blog to Wordpress, so if you'll click over to LaurieLondonBooks.com, you'll see the blog tab. That's where I'm posting news and information about my books now.

I'm keeping this blog up for the archives. (Plus, I really do enjoy the Blogger interface.) And in case I hate Wordpress, I'll be back here someday.

You can also still find me on my old haunts at Facebook and Twitter.

See you around the interwebs!

Assassin's Touch Blog Buttons

To celebrate the coming release of ASSASSIN'S TOUCH, the first book in the Iron Portal series, I made some fancy blog buttons for you with my mad Photoshop skillz. If you want other sizes, let me know in the comments. I didn't do any banners, but I could certainly make them if you guys want them.

Feel free to right click and post them on your sidebars and web sites. And until it goes up on the etailer sites, here's the Goodreads page you can link to.


125 x 125

250 x 250

And an update on the Goodreads contest that I talked about here (you can also enter it there too).

ASSASSIN'S TOUCH has been added to over 120 shelves in just 3 days! You guys rock! Thanks for spreading the news about the book. If it gets added to 500 shelves before the book comes out, the winner will also win a brand new Kindle Paperwhite ereader.

Why ASSASSIN'S TOUCH Should Be on Your Goodreads Shelf

I'm so excited to share the cover and blurb of my next paranormal romance with you! ASSASSIN'S TOUCH, book 1 in the Iron Portal series, will be coming out November 2012. Be sure to scroll down for details on the Goodreads contest.

Meet Rickert D'Angelus. Isn't he hot?! Trish Pickyme is the talented cover artist and she used one of Jenn LeBlanc's images. I think he'd look really good on your Goodreads shelf. :-)

Here's the back cover copy:

Two worlds. Two enemies.

Haunted by loss, Cascadian assassin Rickert D’Angelus is on a mission of vengeance. Determined to stop the Pacifican army from finding a portal to his world, he leads a group of warriors into New Seattle with one goal—to kill all Pacifican soldiers.

Neyla Trihorn had the perfect life until a deadly accident revealed her latent para-abilities. Now, the former fashion designer is the Pacifican army’s hottest commodity in their fight against the invaders.

When Rickert discovers a beautiful, unconscious soldier on a cold mountain ledge near the portal, he realizes she’s a Protection-Talent and cannot be killed. To prevent the army from using her skills again, he takes her as his prisoner instead.

One fated touch…

But when he pulls her into his arms, a sexy and compelling vision appears, awakening something inside him. Something he can’t ignore.

Torn between duty and passion, Rickert must decide if the vision is a Talent trick designed to foil the enemy or the answer to his deepest desires...

Contest details: Add ASSASSIN'S TOUCH to your Goodreads shelf and enter the giveaway below.

One lucky person will win a $50 gift card. And if the book gets added to 500 Goodreads shelves before it is released in November (this is a big stretch, so we'll see how it goes), I'll throw in a brand new Kindle Paperwhite ereader.

Good luck!!!
