[AlyssaDayNews] New excerpt posted, original music video, booksigning, & VAMPIRES IN ATLANTIS!

Here's my latest newsletter- be sure to sign up at my website if you'd like to receive my (infrequent) newsletters straight to your inbox.

Happy summer, everyone! I hope you're enjoying lovely weather and days at the beach or pool! I have some exciting news to share – things are hopping here in Warriors of Poseidon land! See below for news of an excerpt, the super cool music video, the big booksigning in Orlando, and what's up with Daniel and his book, VAMPIRES IN ATLANTIS. Thanks!!

First, ATLANTIS BETRAYED! Less than 2 short months until release on September 7th! I have posted the first chapter excerpt HERE!

And here's a little sneak peek from the back cover:

What could Christophe, powerful Warrior of Poseidon, have in common with Fiona Campbell, prim and proper Scottish illustrator of fairytales by day and notorious jewel thief known as the Scarlet Ninja by night? Answer: The Siren, a legendary Crown Jewel that Fiona has targeted for her next heist. It's said to be worth millions, but to Christophe it's invaluable. For the Siren also happens to be one of the missing jewels from Poseidon's trident.

But breaking into the Tower of London is a two-person job, so Christophe and Fiona team up to commit the crime of the century. As newfound passions fire their motives--and cloud their judgment--they realize they aren't the only ones after the priceless gem. A dark force is shadowing their every move, and threatening to shatter their trust with revenge, betrayal, and a haunting revelation about the past.

Second, an original music video based on my books!!

I spent most of the first half of this week, all day and all night for 3 days, with the film crew filming the MUSIC VIDEO of the ORIGINAL ROCK SONG based on my books!!! How cool is that? I have some pics of the film shoot up at my blog and will soon be able to share more. We expect the song to go up on iTunes within about 6 weeks, and the video will launch shortly thereafter, so I'll be sure to share more when those dates firm up. The song is called Every Time You Read My Mind, and it gives me chills every time I hear it!

You can see pics of the film shoot here (AT THE BLOG, BELOW).

Third, I'll be signing books with about a kajillion other authors in Orlando in just 2 short weeks! Here's the scoop, straight from RWA's website:

The "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing has become one of the most popular events at RWA's annual conference. More than 500 romance authors participate in this two-hour autographing event, and each year we raise thousands of dollars, which are donated to ProLiteracy Worldwide. Since 1990, RWA has donated more than $600,000 to literacy charities.

The 2010 "Readers for Life" Literacy Autographing takes place on Wednesday, July 28, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Walt Disney World® Dolphin Resort, Pacific Exhibit Hall, in Orlando, Florida. This event is open to the public; there is no admittance charge. Since the proceeds from this event are donated to charity, we ask that you purchase books at the event instead of bringing your own books. (RWA accepts cash, check, or credit/debit cards for book purchases at the event.) If you do bring books, please limit yourself to one or two books and consider making a cash donation to the cause.

Finally, yes, for all of those who have asked/pleaded/offered me chocolate, Daniel/Drakes/Devon DOES get a book . . . AND IT'S UP NEXT!!!

VAMPIRES IN ATLANTIS will be a spring release, exact date coming soon, and I love this book!! Daniel has long been one of my favorites.

As always, thanks for reading my books. I appreciate it so very much. Please feel free to share this newsletter with anybody who might be interested in hot warriors, strong heroines, and exciting sword fights. (Wait till you see Quinn wielding a sword in the video! Wow!). Oh—and I'm often on Twitter, if you tweet, and at Facebook. And the new website section with the gemstones of the Trident will be up soon at my website. Thanks for hanging in there to read this far!!

WOOHOO for BETRAYED...and the original song, and the music video, and VAMPIRES IN ATLANTIS, and the signing!!!

I'm not going to make it to RWA this year, so I won't be able to buy you a drink in thanks and celebration--but I hope you have a fantastic time and gather even more fans! I hope to see you next year, maybe at RT or RWA, and drag you to the bar there. :)

Looking forward to Betrayed it seems so long since the last one. Have fun at RWA, I've never been.

Mana said...

This is so exciting! Daniel definatley deserved his own sort of happy ending and I can't wait for Christope's story and that music video.

I absolutely love your Atlantis series! X3

Alyssa Day said...

Thanks, everyone!

Cate, I'll miss you!

Diane, it was only months ago that Atlantis Redeemed came out! I'm writing as fast as I can! :)

Thanks, Mana!

Alyssa Day said...

Meant to say FOUR months ago. :)

rhomitz said...

Oh my Alyssa. You are quite the busy one, aren't you!?! And now a Vampires in Atlantis story, WOW! You "are" good! Now i'm more than excited than ever. How exciting!!!:):):)

Lisa near Seattle said...

Just finished reading Brennan's story Atlantis Redeemed and am totally psyched for Atlantis Betrayed and Daniel's story. Too bad I have college classes tomorrow, am practically broke, and live near Seattle or I'd definetly be at that book signing :) Oh well. I guess I'll just have to make do with seeing the music video coming out soon :)

Alyssa Day said...

Thank you so much!! Please come see me in Seattle at the Emerald City Writers Conference the first weekend in October. It's much closer! :)

Jill said...

Congratulations on the ****1/2 HOT TOP PICK! rating in the latest Romantic Time ! Great review too. I like it when reviewers agree with me. :)

I was very good to see you again, Ms Day!

I'm waiting with bated breath for Christophe's book--only a month to go now!--but the news about Daniel/Drake/Devon and Jack are also super awesome (even if it means getting back into waiting mode right after reading Atlantis Betrayed!)

Alyssa Day said...

Thanks, everyone!! And it was GREAT to see you in Orlando!! I'm still exhausted from the trip there, the drive back from Ohio to Florida, etc. etc. Being gone for 2 weeks is a lot, at least in my world.
