30 Seconds Promo and Apology

One of the sad realities of blogging is missing out or breaking promises. In November I was among the bloggers who gladly offered to help promote an upcoming sale for 30 Seconds by Chrys Fey. I was back in the blogging fray and ready to help. Unfortunately November turned out to not be exactly the perfect month with fatigue issues, watching a bad flu and getting diarrhea...twice. So I ended up missing the sale completely and Chrys's email sat on unnoticed. By the time I recalled it...yeah. I felt bad. But decided after some thinking to just do a regular promo for her book. As bloggers we are still human and will make mistakes. What we should do though after that is try to make up for it however we can.

30 Seconds Promotion



Blurb:
When Officer Blake Herro agreed to go undercover in the Mob, he thought he understood the risks. But he's made mistakes and now an innocent woman has become their target. He's determined to protect her at all costs.

The Mob's death threat turns Dr. Dani Hart's life upside down, but there is one danger she doesn’t anticipate. As she's dodging bullets, she's falling in love with Blake. With danger all around them, will she and Blake survive and have a happy ending, or will the Mob make good on their threat?


Excerpt:

She had no time to react when a strong force bowled her through the doorway of her apartment, and a large hand plastered over her mouth. The man she had bumped into on the stairs had a firm grip on her as he kicked the door closed behind them. She struggled to get free, but his hold kept her back pressed against his chest.
“It’s okay. I’m a cop. My name is Blake Herro.” He hauled her into the living room. “There are six armed men coming up the stairs. We need to hide. Where can we hide?”
Her mind went blank, she even forgot about the ice cream.
“Where?” he demanded with a quick shake.
She pointed to the six-foot long, three-foot high handcrafted cedar chest she used for a coffee table. Officer Herro pulled her to it and flung open the lid.
“Get in,” he ordered.

  1. I don't think she'll mind that you were late, especially with your image take on the description. That was great!

  6. Sometimes life gets in the way of blogging. I'm sure she understands. By the way I enjoyed her 'twist' on the blurb. Good job sharing it. It's never too late to promote someone.

  7. OMG I was on vacation last summer when I realized I was supposed to post about someone's book. I can't remember whose but she'd helped me out on my release and I've been moving mountains for everyone who helped me with the cover reveal of my first Piper Morgan book. I even have a list of their names (including you, actually!), so I don't mess up. Anyway, this author had hired a blog tour hosting company and the person sending the email confused me with her wording...I thought the one-day-only date she'd mentioned for posting was the date she wanted it posted when actually that was the book's release date. I felt HORRIBLE. I emailed the author and she totally understood and they let me make it up once I got my act together!

    This book looks like a page-turner. Thanks for drawing our attention to 30 seconds, Sheena.
