Latest Release


Be sure to grab your e-book copy!  Up In Flames, Texas Vampire Rangers,1 

The law enforcement agency of the Texas Rangers is made up almost entirely of vampires, something the public knows nothing about.  Well, at least not yet, but they could soon if the Rangers don't apprehend an out-of-control rogue vampire who has been on a killing spree for two years, leaving a lengthening trail of young dead women.

 Meredith was in the wrong place at the wrong time when she witnessed an attack on a young woman.  The assailant wants to tie up loose ends, and has hunted her ever since.  When she feels she has no options left, she turns her trust over to a man who has taken an oath to protect.

Ranger Lucas Calloway was left for dead, and looking back on his life he wouldn't have changed a thing, except for one—he would have loved to have found his mate before he left this earth.  No one is more shocked than him when he not only wakes in a hospital, but finds himself looking into the eyes of his mate.

Meredith and Lucas barely have time to acknowledge they are mates before the game changes.  The rogues have found her, yet again, and a leak in the Ranger unit has the potential to not only crush the tight knit family, but bury them—literally.

Join the Vampire Rangers as they use their strength, and added senses to strive to right the wrongs.  With the ability to live forever, time is always on their side.

Behind The Scenes With Alice

Weekly Notes, April 21, 2014 

Straight from the desk of Alice Brown & Lady V: ​

It was an exciting time last week, and we have a lot of good news to share with you.  First, both A Special Gift, Vampires Among Us # 2 and Sapphamire, Dragons of Dragonose #1 are in paperback form!  We know a lot of you have asked about books coming out in paperback; and we are very happy to announce that these two books are now available on both Amazon and Barnes and Noble websites.  Links for buying paperbacks can be found on the home page of our website, http://AuthorAliceBrown.com.

More good news!  we were able to make some real headway in Fire and Ice, Dragons of Dragonose 2 over the past week, with much more to come.  We thought we would share with you a small snippet of the story.  Please be advised this has NOT been edited what-so-ever, but we are so excited with where the story is going, we felt like we had to share.


Snippet from Fire and Ice, Dragons of Dragonose 2

Evangelina Blackmon sipped on her glass of white wine while perched on a bar stool talking with her best friend, Angel. “Well, at least I’ll be able to keep my lights on another month, thanks to the newspaper article I am going to be knocking out tonight.”

Her friend gave her a sympathetic look.  “I know.  I swear it gets harder and harder to make ends meet every month!”  She shook her head as she reached for her beer.  “The little bit of fun I allow myself now has to be taken out of grocery money.”

Evangelina already felt bad for cutting the night short, she didn’t want to bog down their spirits complaining about finances.  “Oh, but did I tell you I saw the best looking man I have ever laid my eyes on today at the parade?  Honey, he put everyone else to shame!”  She leaned in a bit closer so only her friend could hear.  “I about climaxed right there in the middle of the street!”

Her friend burst out into giggles.  “Now this I’ve got to hear.  Come on, I want details, girlfriend!”

“Well, he was really tall.  Like, well over six feet. And a body to die for.  You could tell he worked out, no man has that kind of upper body muscles without working out heavily.  He had the prettiest blonde hair; just begging for a woman’s fingers to run through.” 

Angel laughed.  “I was about to tell you to turn around that your dream man was right behind you, but he has short, black hair.”

Evangelina turned her head over her shoulder just to see what her friend was talking about, and almost fell off her bar stool.  Because standing right beside her, ordering two beers, was her dream man, only it wasn’t her dream man.  This man had black hair.  But other than the difference in hair color, he was almost identical to the man she had seen at the parade today.

“Good evening ladies, can I buy you a drink?”  He asked solicitously. 

Evangelina stared at the man that could pass for her dream guy’s twin.  Then she realized after a long minute that her mouth was hanging wide open.  Smooth girl, real smooth.  Thankfully, her friend didn’t appear to be dumbstruck like herself.

“Umm, hi, I’m Angel, and this is Evangelina.  And sure, if you want to get our drinks refilled, that would be great.”

Evangelina realized while her friend was talking that this stranger dude couldn’t seem to take his eyes off of her.  And then he smiled, and his entire face lit up.  The man is gorgeous, she thought.  But then, as if by magic, her dream guy came walking up. 


“Hey bro, got those beers yet?”

A Message from the Paws:

What an exciting day I had yesterday!  I got to go on my very first Easter Egg hunt!  Little colorful eggs that were filled with all kinds of treat goodies!  

And then the humans grilled out!  The weather didn't turn out all that great; but they just moved everything inside where I got to join in on a meal of chicken, potato salad, vegetables, homemade rolls, and cake.  What a feast I had!  How was your Easter?  Oh, something called the Easter Bunny dropped off some toys and stuffed animals for me too, but I am not sure when he came, because I sure didn't hear anyone coming in our front door!  Hmm, I think maybe I better start paying better attention to sounds at night!  Can't have strangers walking into my house, even if they do leave goodies!

Weekly Notes, April 14, 2014 

Straight from the desk of Alice Brown & Lady V: 


Last week was the release of Up in Flames, Texas Vampire Rangers, 1.  We held the release party Tuesday evening and had one of the largest turn outs we have seen yet.  Joining up with fellow JK authors Jess Buffett and Gracie Meadows, there were plenty of prizes and a good time had by all that attended!

Thank you to everyone who has sent cards, messages, etc. to our family as we continue to deal with the death of Alice's sister.  Your thoughts and prayers have made this journey a bit easier.

Now, spring is officially here, at least in North Carolina, and we hope everyone is enjoying warmer temperatures.  The grass is growing, flowers are starting to bloom, and this is truly one of our favorite seasons.  Also, we want to wish everyone a very

A Message from the Paws:

 
     

As many of you might have seen on facebook, I injured my left paw earlier this week.  I got bit or stung by something, but my owners took me straight over to my aunt's house (she is a vet tech) and she took wonderful care of me, and I am feeling much better now!  Once back home, my mommy spoiled me rotten, including introducing me to a late night run to get a cheeseburger for me.  Hey, the medicine I was on was making me hungry!  I was introduced to those wonderful, delicious double cheeseburgers and french fries that night.  What a late night snack!

I am currently spending time back over at my aunt's house.  She has several dogs, and we love to romp and stomp through her house!  She even allows me to jump and play on the furniture, something I can't do at my house.  My family had to go out of town for a couple of days, so I am staying at the aunties, which has been named doggy romper room!  It's a blast!  Have a great week!  I overheard my mommy talking about some kind of "hunt" coming up.  An Easter Egg hunt.  Don't know what that is, but is sure sounds like fun!

Weekly Notes, April 7, 2014 

Straight from the desk of Alice Brown & Lady V: ​


As a few of you already know by now, last week was a very stressful, mind-numbing week as the Brown family attempted to deal with the sudden death of my younger sister.  

She died quite suddenly last Saturday, March 29, and as you can imagine, last week was filled with grieving family members as we all tried wrapping our heads around someone so young taken from us. 

If there is to be any good news from this situation (and there really never is, actually), it is that both my youngest sister and myself have vowed to get our own health on track and get in shape.  I am hoping maybe the "buddy" system will work as we keep each other in check.  Progress to be announced.

Due to situations that have been totally out of our control, Fire and Ice, Dragons of Dragonose 2 is running a bit behind.  Lady V and I hope to start working on this book again later this week.

Don't forget:  The release party for Up in Flames, Texas Vampire Rangers, 1 is Tuesday, April 8, from 6-10 p.m. EST.  We are having this one in the evening so that we can include my good friends Gracie Meadows, and Jess Buffett as they are also releasing with me.   Jess lives in Australia, so in order for her to participate with the time difference, we are holding this in the evening.  Hope to see everyone there!--Alice

A Message from Lady V:  

I thought I'd give everyone an update on Shadow this week.  As many already know, this puppy showed up at our doorstep a week before Christmas, half-starved, full of ticks, and freezing to death in the cold rain.  Still, no one was in bigger shock than I was when mom turned to me and said, "If you want him, we'll keep him.  But you are going to have to take responsibility for his upkeep and training."  

We hadn't had a dog in almost five years, and as far as I knew, mom didn't want another dog.  How quickly things change.  Today, Shadow is a loving member of the family, and as you can see, a very happy and healthy six month old puppy weighing in at 54 lbs.!  And mom, well, Shadow has worked his way into her heart.  She only lifted an eyebrow and calmly told me to "take care of it" when we came home to a torn up shoe last week!  (Of course, the shoe that was destroyed wasn't one of her's, it was dad's!  I seriously doubt she would have remained calm if it had been a pair of her heels!)   --Lady V

PS....latest photo was taken while at Aunt's house, otherwise known as "Doggie Romper Room!"

Paws Corner:

 
Our family was forced to say goodbye to our oldest cat, Muffet this week.  She was 17 years old, and had been with our family since she was 2.  In typical cat style, she was a moody old lady, and we told her nine years ago when we moved that it was her retirement home.   She was well loved and will be sorely missed, especially in light of the fact she seemed to be the only one that could catch a mouse!

Straight from the desk of Alice Brown & Lady V: 
 
Both Lady V and myself went back to seventh grade science this week as we attempted to help my niece do several projects (including writing a children's book) on Newton's Laws.  Informed niece that she needed to let us know what grade we got for the projects.   Since I clearly remember flunking science in high school way back in the stone ages, we will see if I have learned anything since then!

Sapphamire, Dragons of Dragonose has received several five star reviews on both Kindle and Goodreads.  If you get a minute, go check them out!

Edits have been completed and turned back into editor for Up in Flames, Texas Vampire Rangers 1.  I am hoping for a release date sometime towards the end of April.

With edits out of the way, I am looking forward to concentrating on Fire and Ice (Book 2 of Dragons of Dragonose) and Ivormantis (Book 3) this week.  Lady V and I are also preparing for our upcoming trip to Vegas, Feb. 19-24.  Plan on emptying my camera before I go so I can take lots of pictures!

Quote of the Week:

I don’t need a psychiatrist to prod into my personal life and make me tell them all my secrets, I have friends for that!
 

 
 Straight from the Paws:

As you can tell from the photo, Shadow, who is now approximately 6 months old, got his very own dragon to celebrate the release of Sapphamire, thanks to Mr. Brown.  He is currently weighing in at 39 lbs. and has turned out to be a wonderful addition to our family.  Looking at him now, it is hard to believe it is the same puppy that showed up after getting dumped in front of our house a week before Christmas, half starved, freezing to death (it was cold and raining the morning he showed up), and full of ticks.

Currently, Mr. Brown has yet to be forgiven for buying the dog the toy because it has sixteen squeakers in it!  And wouldn't you know that Shadow's favorite thing to do is bring his toy into my office and sit down at my feet squeaking his toy?

So, while Shadow is now sleeping in Lady V's bed, Mr. Brown is currently residing in the doghouse!

Weekly Notes, March 3, 2014 

Straight from the desk of Alice Brown & Lady V: ​

It's been an exciting week as Sapphamire, Dragons of Dragonose was released last Thursday Feb. 28. We held our first ever pre-release party, right here on our blog; and then joined up with fellow JK author Gracie Meadows to throw a HUGE release party on facebook Thursday afternoon.

Then we woke up Friday morning to discover our book made was mentioned in USA Today.  I honestly can't tell you who was more excited, Lady V or myself.   I still feel like maybe it was a dream.

There is a lot of "behind the scenes" paperwork that goes along with a new book getting published.  A lot of sites that authors use to help promote them all get updated when a new release hits.  Blogs are requested, reviews are requested, etc.  It is a fairly lengthy list, but we are hoping to have everything caught up by middle of the week.  That will free up time to get back to writing.  While Lady V works on book three of Dragons of Dragonose, Alice will be working on edits to her new series, Texas Vampire Rangers.  

Busy, busy week, but (hopefully) we will get caught up and get back to doing what we love to do the best...write!

Lady V is in the spotlight this week.  So Lady V, what was it like last week to have your first book published?  

Lady V:  It was an incredible exciting, but scary all at the same time.  I loved talking to everyone that was at our two parties, and I feel like I am starting to break out my shell that surrounds me.  But Friday morning, when I discovered we were in USA Today?  I jumped out of bed, went running to Alice.  When I arrived I was so excited that I literally couldn't speak, could barely breathe.  She started hitting the panic button thinking something dreadful had happened, and was beginning to wish she had never even rolled out of bed.  When I was finally able to give her the good news, and that was after trying to get myself under control for about 2-3 minutes, we both started jumping and shouting!  That's the thing I love about Alice.  Yes, she is my mom.  But she is also my best friend.  And when something incredible happens like this, she is right there with me jumping up and down, and yelling (thank goodness we don't have any close neighbors).

Tidbit of the Week:  From Alice Brown

In the middle of all the craziness of a book release, my thirteen year old niece came over Saturday afternoon.  She joined us as we went to Raleigh to listen to a favorite singer of ours perform, and then spent the night.  She hit us up for help in several projects that have a very short deadline on them.  

So, in the middle of everything, Mr. Brown and I steered and helped her do a collage, a brochure (Mr. Brown gets extra points on that!), and a video of her explaining the meaning of Newton's Laws.  

You'll be happy to know that Mr. and Mrs. Brown still have it!  We aced all three projects and niece even had time to play Mario Bros. on the Wii.

The only project left is to write a children's book.  Piece of cake...oh wait, I can't put any hot steamy scenes in this kids book.  Okay, that might be a problem!

Weekly Notes, February 24, 2014 

Straight from the desk of Alice Brown: ​

We are in party mode this week!!!

First off, we are undergoing some changes.  Lady V has agreed to join me on the weekly blog, giving you two times the entertainment. So, I am going to get the "news" portion out of the way first, and then have some fun.  

Sapphamire, Dragons of Dragonose 1 is set to be released this Thursday, Feb. 27.  We will be having two separate parties for this release.  One is on facebook and will be held the day of the release.  (https://www.facebook.com/events/602664226471971/?ref_dashboard_filter=upcoming)


But.....we are also holding our first ever pre-release party right here on our blog!  That's right, all of our website fans and supporters can now join in on the fun!  We will be playing games and giving away prizes as we eagerly await the release of the book.  So come join us!  Details are below. 

When:  Wednesday, February 26, 2014                                                                                                                 
Time:  5-7 p.m. EST
Where:

Interview with Lady V & Sapphamire:


Lady V sat down to ask Sapphamire a few personal questions.  This is the result.

Lady V:  In the book you and Blain don't see eye to eye sometimes.  How often does that happen?

Sapphamire:  Of sweets, the man drives me crazy sometimes!  I mean, he waited for what seemed like forever just to tell Natasha that she was our mate!  And anything could have happened during this time.  She might have fallen down the stairs to her death.  Or being poisoned or any number of things could have happened while he got cold feet.  

Lady V:  Prior to Natasha, have you or Blain ever been in love before?  I mean, we all know that Blain Barrymire was a playboy.  But did either of you ever fall in love?

Sapphamire:  (shakes his head) I told Blain his past was going to come back to bite him!  No, while I won't deny that Blain has slept around, he nor I have ever fallen in love.  We knew we wouldn't unless we found our mate.  But my pretty, you should come back to Dragonose with us.  As beautiful as you are, you are bound to be someone's mate.  We don't get very many young, pretty girls that come.  

Lady V:  Thank you for the offer Sapphamire.  I'll have to think about it.   Do you think more of your kind will come to earth to find their mate?

Sapphamire:  If I go back home and show them a picture of you they will be!  They'll be pushing each other out of the way to get through the portal.  Can I give them your address?

Lady V:  NO!

We are celebrating the soon to be released, Sapphamire, Dragons of Dragonose 1.  So stay right here for the next two hours as we play games and give away some really cool prizes!   But first, here are some snippets from the story:

 
   

 



Prizes:  Handmade necklace, keychain, magnet photo of cover, small framed photos of cover, mouse pad, JK Publishing gift card, and a reserved copy of Sapphamire, Dragons of Dragonose 1!  



Get to know the authors:  Both Lady V and Alice Brown are on hand to answer any question you might have.  Go ahead and put your question in the comment section below, and it will be copied and answered here.

First question comes from Amy Bowens.  Where did you get the idea to write about dragons? Are you a huge fan of them?

Somehow, and to be honest we don't remember how, but the subject of dinosaurs came up and how they have been wiped off the earth.  Then the question came up, but what if they hadn't?  What if they had just been shrank down to what we know today as lizards, etc.  One thing led to another, and before you knew it, we were discussing writing a dragon book and incorporating some of this conversation in it.  It originally started off to be just one book, but by the time we were 1/4 way done writing, we knew we were looking at a series.  Good question Amy!  Thanks!


And yes, we are both huge shifter fans...but both love dragon shifters!

Since this is Lady V's debut into the publishing world, I am going to turn the reins over to her and let her tell everyone a little bit about herself.  So, here she is:

Well, I'm not that great at talking with people and tend to stutter when I get nervous; that's why I love staying behind a keyboard all the time.  I'm slowly working to try and bring myself out of my shy shell.  LOL.  I actually got started writing about three years ago thanks to Mom guiding me down that road in hopes of finding a way to release and deal with me emotions.  Yes, I am a VERY emotional person, but I love transferring those emotions over in my books!





Here is where we will be playing games for you to win prizes!  Prizes listed above.  First correct response for each question asked will be the winner.

Weekly Notes, February 17, 2014 

Straight from the desk of Alice Brown: ​

Last week was an interesting weather week.  It snowed, and then we had freezing rain, and then just plain cold rain.  And while I am very thankful we didn't loose power, our WiFi internet going down due to satellite dish on top of roof was frozen over solid didn't help my work schedule.  

So, since I am a firm believer in taking a bit of down time for yourself or your family is important, and I was not feeling the best anyways, I decided to take advantage of the internet being down and curl up with a blanket and read.  I was able to almost finish Talyn Scott's Six Feet Under Series.

So no, not a lot of writing got done last week; but it was important for me to take a step back and recharge my cells.  Now, on a better note, the trailer for Sapphamire, Dragons of Dragonose is up (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLXLBy2dKDU&feature=youtu.be) and the official release date for this book is February 27!  Keep a watch out on facebook for the release day party event, as I hope to have that set up this week!






Fan of the Week: 
 
This week’s winner of the fan of the week award goes to: April Harvey.  Congratulations!  

The prize this week is a handmade necklace made by my lovely co-author and daughter,
Lady V.

Quote of the Week:

.The greatest pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.—Walter Bagehot
 
 
 
A Note from the Paws:   


From Harley and White Star:  Have we told you recently how annoying the puppy is when it snows?  He comes in all wet, shaking the cold wetness everywhere, and as soon as he is dried off and his paws are wiped free of mud (and believe us, we laugh watching this because he hates his paws messed with), he starts running from one end of the house to another as if the poor guy hasn't a brain in his head.  We almost feel sorry for him. Almost.

But when he dug up one of the human's rose bushes and destroyed it, in the process of getting covered in mud, we really laughed as we watched him get a bath from the doorway.  He looked like a huge, drowned rat!  That was after he got in trouble for digging up the human's flower bushes!  Snicker-snicker!






The new releases for JK Publishing will start up again next week.  We are changing our new release day from Tuesday to Thursday.  So, starting next week, I will be announcing the new releases for the prior week.
