Limited Time Offers on The Starseed Trilogy

I’m celebrating this week and I’d love for you to celebrate with me! For a very limited time Prophecy of Three is FREE and Souls of Three is on SALE!

Hello, lovelies!

As some of you know, I’ve been in a yoga teacher training program all year. The program has been wonderful, more difficult than I imagined, and extremely eye-opening to discover parts of myself I hadn’t tended to (not to mention realize how difficult teaching yoga properly actually is!). That being said, last weekend was the final weekend of the program so I wanted to celebrate by sharing the abundant love I felt last weekend!

So, for one day only (yes, today 11/14/17) my buzzed about witchy debut novel Prophecy of Three is FREE in the Kindle store! Here’s the link to get your digital copy: bit.ly/2xVXhkKPOT . 

If you’ve already read Prophecy of Three, and I hope you have because it’s pretty awesome, I’ve got something for you too! My new release, Souls of Three, Book Two of The Starseed Trilogy is going on SALE for the next 6 days! So here’s the deal, starting 11/15/17 Souls of Three will be $0.99 until 11/18/17, when the price bumps up to $2.99. Here’s the Amazon link for Souls of Three: http://bit.ly/2g9Hk32SOT

These are both LIMITED time offers so mark them on your calendar now, or head on over to Amazon today! And, as always, don’t forget to leave your reviews! I appreciate them more than you know.

All the magic,

Ashley

A Witchy Halloween to you!

As a fantasy author, I adore Halloween. So much so that I am one of those people that dresses up my dog and would love nothing more than to attend a fabulous costume party or gala dressed to the nines as a fairy queen or Cleopatra.

I suppose it makes sense, I have always had an affinity for the magical, mystical, and unexplainable.That I started writing about witches and other supernatural creatures was a natural progression. However, these last few years my interest in the holiday has shifted a bit. I’ve gotten more into the academic history of Halloween and how it has evolved over hundreds of years. Curious about that too? Read on. 🙂

 

I suppose it makes sense, I have always had an affinity for the magical, mystical, and unexplainable.That I started writing about witches and other supernatural creatures was a natural progression. However, these last few years my interest in the holiday has shifted a bit. I’ve gotten more into the academic history of Halloween and how it has evolved over hundreds of years. Curious about that too? Read on. 🙂

Halloween, traditionally called Samhain, an ancient harvest festival in the Celtic world, began it’s metamorphosis to what we know it as today as a night when people believed that faeries, witches, and demons roamed the earth. They set out food and drink to placate the creatures of the night. Throughout history other groups of peoples have felt that same need to honor the ‘other’ by gathering together to hold space for the dead, dancing around bonfires, carving pumpkins (or giant turnips as was often done in Ireland), playing divination games, and bobbing for apples. Much later on, people began dressing up as the very magical beings they laid out food for and began claiming the goodies for themselves, sometimes performing antics or tricks in exchange for food and drink. As you can imagine this evolved into trick or treating, which is enjoyed the world over by millions of children and adults. However, the magically inclined have always tended to think differently from the masses. Even today witches and wizards relate much more to the traditional Samhain celebration where one honors the change of the season rather than trick or treating. Modern witches sometimes consider Halloween or Samhain (depending on which vernacular they use) the ‘witches New Year’ and many still see it as a day to honor the deceased with scrying rituals or burning candles.

I’ll be real. I love witches, historically, fictionally, and presently but I am no witch. Still, I like nothing more than dressing up in my witches hat, grabbing a wand (I’m still patiently waiting to purchase my own in Diagon Alley) and hitting the town for some Halloween *FUN*! However, this year is different. I’ll be on a plane, returning from a writing research trip in England and Ireland for my next witchy series. And I’ll also be releasing my second novel! That’s right Souls of Three is officially out Halloween 2017! Because really, when you write about witches is there a better release day? It’s on pre-order now but you can also sign up for my mailing list, The Coven, and I’ll send you an email Halloween day reminding you that your favorite witchy read is available for purchase.

Thanks for reading (and as my witches would say) “Happy Samhain to ye!”

Yup. That’s sassy and at times uptight Miss Evelyn on the cover so if you loved her in Prophecy of Three you’re in for a real treat! And if you didn’t love her, well, she’s a talented witch and may just sway you in Souls. 🙂

Rogue Fae, A Starseed Universe Novella, Now available on Amazon.com

Hello lovelies!

Just wanted to drop you all a line to let you know my novella Rogue Fae is now available! It’s a prequel story to Prophecy of Three and features a few fan favorites Gwenn, Rena, and Em. Here are the blurb and cover for those that are interested. 🙂

***

A rogue fae is on the loose in Nashville. When the fae kills a wizard and leaves three women insane in its wake, the Nashville coven seeks to bring the fae to justice. They search each crime scene and come across a type of magic no one is sure how to decipher.
No one, that is, except Emily Harp, recent divorcee, Nashville visitor, and empathetic witch. At the coven’s request Emily, alongside her new friends and fellow witches, Gwenn McKay and Rena Whiplark investigate the crime sites in hopes of helping the coven catch the fae.
When the trio stumbles across information of a feud generations old between the Nashville coven and the local fae tribe it sheds new light on the crimes. Light that quickly fades to a very dark scenario. Will Emily, Gwenn, and Rena succeed in bringing the rogue fae to justice? Or will they discover there’s something more sinister that needs to be dealt with in Nashville?

Hello Dear ones!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a huge summer. Working hard and playing harder as they say. Lately, though, I’ve had my head down more often than not and for good reason. If you’re a member of my email list you already know this bit of juicy news but if you’re not let me fill you in on the secret . . .

I’ve written a novella. If you loved Gwenn, Rena, and Em from Prophecy of Three you’ll adore Rogue Fae, A Starseed Prequel Novella. Rogue Fae is the story of Gwenn, Rena, and Em stumbling into Nashville and being recruited to help the Nashville coven catch a rogue fae terrorizing Nashville citizens and committing murder. Sounds fun right? That’s because it is! Rogue Fae will be free to mailing list subscribers so if you’re not on my exclusive mailing list hop on now (links found on every page of this site) and be the first to read Rogue Fae. Also since my mailing list subscribers are so special to me you’ll automatically be entered to win a Kindle to be drawn when Prophecy of Three receives 60 honest reviews on Amazon. This is exclusive to subscribers folks. Bonus entry into the hat if you are a subscriber that leaves a review (please put your name on the review so I know)! Let no one ever say I don’t love my subscribers!

Now that I’ve enticed you with the story let’s get to the part I know you all came here for.

Isn’t she a stunner!?

 

Can’t wait to share this story with you guys!

It’s Giveaway Season!

Can you guys believe it? It’s been just over two months since Prophecy of Three’s release!? I know, where has the time gone?

First off, I wanted to thank everyone who bought Prophecy of Three and helped make its launch a success. It’s recently been added to a number of Goodreads list (#1 on Best Witchy Fantasy at this writing) and received many amazing reviews. You guys rock!

As you may expect I gave myself a little downtime after the book release. About a week to read for fun and do whatever I wanted. It was marvelous but after a week I started getting itchy hands. I needed to write again and get working on Souls of Three, Book Two of The Starseed Trilogy and a novella titled Rogue Fae. Oh . . . and giveaways!

You read that right! It’s time for a contest giveaway! Right now I am running two (it’s like I’m Oprah up in here) and you dear readers are the ones who will determine the length of one of them. Let’s start with the first giveaway . . .

The first giveaway begins July 24th and can be found on Goodreads. First, search Prophecy of Three on Goodreads, then add it to your TBR list, and finally, enter the giveaway (just a press of a button) that is associated with the book’s page for a chance to one of two paperback copies of Prophecy of Three! OR go to the homepage of this site and press the Goodreads Giveaway button I’ve installed! Easy peasy. Goodreads will randomly select the winner in October. I will then notify the winner and send them a copy of the book. Sounds sweet right? That’s because it is!

The second giveaway is more personal and only members of my exclusive mailing list are eligible. Some people are freaked out by giving out their email but I PROMISE I will NOT sell your information. Scouts honor! If you decide to become a member of the list (the sign up of which can be found on the home page of this site) you are automatically entered to win a Kindle! Already have a Kindle? Well, Christmas is right around the corner and this baby is unregistered!

Actual Kindle going home with one lucky mailing list subscriber.

But wait there’s more! If you become a mailing list subscriber AND leave an honest review for Prophecy of Three on Amazon you will receive TWO entries to win the Kindle. Doubling your chances sounds pretty good right? This, of course, means you will need to leave your name on the review (anonymous reviews will not be counted as they cannot be verified) and I promise I will check everything to make it fair. This contest will run continuously until Prophecy of Three has reached 60 reviews on Amazon. At that point, I will take a video of me pulling a name out of a hat and award the winner! So to sum it up, email list subscribers are automatically entered, those subscribers that leave a review get TWO entries. This contest will run until Prophecy reaches 60 reviews. That’s it!

So let’s get this Kindle and those paperback copies of Prophecy a home you guys!

If you have any questions please contact me directly, if not go sign up now! 🙂

 

 

Prophecy of Three e-book launch!

Hello dear ones!

I have exciting news! My e-book Prophecy of Three is now out in the world for your viewing pleasure! You can find it on Amazon at the link provided below. It is enrolled in Kindle Unlimited so if you are a subscriber there you can even read it for free. You can also read the first 10% (about 25 pages) for free with the look inside feature.

For those of you that like the feel and smell of a real book, there will be a paperback coming in about a week. Those take a bit longer to format and I want to see the proof to make sure it’s beautiful before it heads out into the world. Thank you so much for your understanding and patience.

I have one small favor to ask. If you read Prophecy and love it would you mind leaving an Amazon review? These are all important for authors just starting out, like me as they increase the visibility of novels on the huge search engine that is Amazon. I’d really appreciate it.

Thank you and hope you all have a great weekend!

Love and light,

Ashley McLeo
