Bad Things Play Here Sale!


Hi guys,

So because of the issue over on Amazon where people couldn't buy the ebook (and the fact I've been super busy as of late) I've decided to offer a sale on the Smashwords.com price! If you don't know about Smashwords, it's a great ebook site that makes it easy for authors to publish and distribute their ebooks! You can get a .mobi, ePub, and PDF all from this site by purchasing the book once! That means you can read it on multiple devices!

Usually the price of the book is $2.99, but for the next week it's going to be only $0.99!!! :) Go grab your copies before the sale is over! And don't forget, if you prefer paperback, the book is also available in that format on Amazon.com!

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/729135

Or at Barnes and Noble here:

https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/bad-things-play-here-chani-lynn-feener/1126551402?ean=2940154408599

In other news, my book Amid Stars and Darkness comes out next month! It's being published by Swoon Reads, on July 18th! I'm really excited about this, and can't wait until we can walk into the bookstore and see it on the shelves!!!

Because of this, expect more posts about that! I've got a couple blog posts with them in the works, as well as a few interviews, so you can head over to their site to check it out (as well as their other amazing authors!) or keep popping back here. I'm going to try and post about it and keep you all in the loop as often as possible!

For a look at the hardcovers check out my instagram @TempestChani !

Thanks!

Questions and comments welcome!

You can’t escape destiny…

Piper Anesidora hates her last name, and the Reaper and demon infested life that comes with it. For centuries, her family has been tasked with protecting Pandora’s Box, and ensuring it’s never reopened. That’s why five years ago she ran away, hoping to build a normal life, one of her own choosing. And it worked. For a little while. But now her brother has been taken by Orpheus, a malicious soul who’s escaped from the Underworld, and if that isn’t bad enough, he’s also stolen the box. The sooner she finds her brother and stops Orpheus from unleashing hell on earth, the better. Piper wants nothing more than to return to the mundane existence she’s created for herself. That is until she’s partnered with the one guy capable of making her crave more. She’s always been told giving into sin is wrong, but her ancestors clearly never met Lust.

You can’t resist temptation…

Reece Luben takes intimate knowledge to a whole new level. As the Greek god of lust, he has a long standing reputation to uphold as a playboy, despite the fact he’s grown bored with the game. It’s been centuries since he’s cared about someone other than his maenads, so he passes the time getting people to shed their inhibitions. As one of the few beings who can sense Pandora’s Box, Reece has no choice but to help Piper find and stop Orpheus, even though he’s avoided her family since the start of his second life. But the feisty Anesidora woman makes him feel things he’s long forgotten, and what starts out as one night giving into desire turns into another…and another. What happens when the god of lust decides he’s changing the game and playing for keeps?

Bad Things Play Here Release Date Announcment!

Bad Things Play Here has a release date!!!!



Excited, right? I'm excited! This is the first adult Paranormal Romance I've released in...a long time. I'm really hoping that you all enjoy it, especially because it's looking more and more like I'll continue with it and write about some more of those sins/gods! ;) But I digress.

I can't wait for you guys to meet these characters, and get to revisit some old ones (Hadrian, for instance)! This book deals with a ton of new people in the Underworld universe, but includes a couple trips down below, and a Reaper or two. This is an adult book meant for 18+, due to strong language and sexual themes. Please keep that in mind!




So, without further ado, the release date for Bad Things Play Here is...

JUNE 9th!!!!!!!



Unfortunately, I will not be setting up a preorder. I thought about it, but I'm waiting on the proof paperback copies first and those won't arrive until a few days prior to the release anyway so...But I will post links to all of the purchase sites on the 9th! This book will be available in paperback, and ebook, on Amazon and through Smashwords.com! If you don't know, purchasing from the latter allows you to get epub, PDF, and/or mobi. files, so you can read on multiple devices!

There's also currently a giveaway going on for (1) paperback and (3) ebooks, so be sure to check the previous post and sign up! Everyone gets a free entry, and there are a ton of other ways to enter as well!



I'm going to drop the blurb here again for you, and the link to the Goodreads.com account! Adding it to your TBR list will also make it easier to purchase a copy when it's out! :)

Giveaway!

Before I get into BTPH, figured I'd mention that there's a giveaway for Amid Stars and Darkness over on Goodreads.com right now!

Hey guys! I thought it'd be fun to host a giveaway for my upcoming Paranormal Romance, Bad Things Play Here! If you haven't yet heard, this book takes place in the same universe as my Underworld Saga! The only difference is while that series was meant for a younger audience, this book (which as of now is a stand-alone) is NOT. Again, this is an Adult Paranormal Romance book, with mature themes such as language and sexual situations. Please keep that in mind when entering!

All right, now that that's out of the way, the giveaway will last one month, and be for (1) Paperback copy, signed, and (3) eBook copies in any format the winners want. Here's the catch, I can only ship the paperback in country (USA). I'm sorry, but shipping costs are crazy and I can't afford to send them anywhere else. However, because of this I've increased the chances of winning an ebook copy for anyone living outside of the US. When you're entering, just scroll to the bottom and if you live in another country you can get an extra three entries added!

There are a ton of different ways everyone can enter, including a few that can be done daily. The exact release date of the book has yet to be decided, but it will be sometime in June. I know this process is moving rather quickly, but it's mostly because I don't want it to interfere with the book I have coming out in July (which is with a major publishing company). I'm leaving a link to the Goodreads.com page below (adding it to your TBR shelf gets you a couple entries!) as well as reposting the blurb!

Questions and comments are more then welcome! They even earn you more entries! ;)

About Bad Things Play Here!



I mentioned in the reveal that I was going to do a more condensed post for Bad Things Play Here, so here it is! If you haven't already heard, this is an upcoming book set in the same universe as the Underworld Saga. HOWEVER, it is an Adult Paranormal Romance, NOT a Young Adult Paranormal. Please keep that in mind! This means there were will be strong language and sexual situations not suitable for a younger audience. If you're wondering why the cover says Seven Deadlies on the side, that is because, while this is a stand alone, I've been playing with the idea of making it part of a series and writing a book for each of the seven deadly sins, which in my universe are known as, you guessed it, the Seven Deadlies. This is not definitive yet, but while talking it over with my cover designer, she really wanted to do something on the side like that so I figured, why not. If I end up doing more with them then this cover is already set, and if I don't...no harm. It still looks really cool, am I right?! :)

Anyway, there are a couple appearances by familiar faces from the Underworld books, but Piper and Reece's (who is Dionysus) story takes place before the start of Unhinged, and just after Spencer and Micah's incident on the bridge. The release date is looking like sometime in June as of right now, but keep checking back for a set date!

This is now up on Goodreads, so please go add it to your TBR shelves:

Cover Reveal + Blurb!

It's here! It's here! It's here!



I can't even begin to express how IN LOVE with this cover I am!!!! Like, crazy, head over heels, everyone-I-love-now-has-competition in love!



This cover has all the elements I was looking for! It's edgy, sexy, and a little bit mysterious. It was important for me, going into this, to make sure that the cover looked like the paranormal romance that it is. Even though it takes place in the same universe as Underworld, unlike those, this isn't a YA book, so I wanted to show a bit more skin to help make that clear.



But I also didn't want to make it too crazy. This isn't an erotica. (Have I tortured you guys enough, or did you just scroll down and get to the good stuff?) All right, well without further ado...

The cover of Bad Things Play Here!



What do you think? Do you love it?! As of right now, this is looking like a June release, and the plan is for it to be available in paperback and ebook! You'll have to keep checking back for updates about that, as it's all tentative at the moment! :)

I want to give a huge thank you to Melissa over at the Polyethnic Publishing for helping me with this cover! She put up with a ton of nitpicking on my part, and was super patient throughout! Also, come on! This cover is gorgeous! She seriously outdid herself! You should all go follow her on Instagram! ;)

And, as promised yesterday, I'm also supplying the official blurb below! I'll post the cover and blurb again in a more condensed fashion at a later date, for now I like all the pomp! Please let me know what you all think!!!! Questions are always welcome!
