Tooting Horn for Upcoming Release!

The closer it gets to a new release, the more excited – and terrified – an author becomes. Readers will be snatching up your book. Reviews will come pouring in – the good, the bad and the ugly. But what if they don’t? It’s like putting all your time, effort and money into planning the party of the year then worrying if anyone will show up. It’s not the planning, it’s the showing up that’s the hard part. How do you get your new baby into the hands (or onto the e-devices) of as many readers as possible?

Spread the word. Amplify your reach.

“By Moonlight” Book 9
By Nancy Gideon
October 13, 2014

Because the road to . . .

Clever, cool and preternaturally lethal, Max Savoie is leader of a secretive shape-shifter clan, heir to a mobster’s legacy, and the love of New Orleans’ top cop . . . but he can’t remember any of them. The only way to recover his past, and his rightful place in the arms of the woman who risked all to save him, is to surrender to a mysterious visitor who could use him as a weapon against all he’d loved.

Happily-Ever-After . . .

After rescuing her mate from his ruthless captors in the North, hard-hitting Detective Charlotte Caissie is now painfully vulnerable—a stranger in his eyes . . . and in his bed. The key to his memories is locked in a tortuous past. To reclaim the strength of their passionate bond, Max must learn to trust her enough to face that darkness at her side before the threat it hides exposes the secret Cee Cee carries.

Is never smooth.

When an investigation into grisly deaths in an underground Shifter fight club points to more than just dangerous clan rivalries, Cee Cee enlists Max’s help to find a traitor in their midst while there’s still time to turn a deadly invading tide. But the cost of saving their treasured future may mean sacrificing his past. Especially when the enemy they pursue . . . might be Max, himself.

“Every delicious word Nancy Gideon puts on the page exhilarates with a sensuous ferocity. Hopelessly addicted.”Darynda Jones, NY Times Bestselling Author

Because REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT, my October 13, 2014 dark paranormal shape-shifter release is my first self-published book and doesn’t have the power of a Big Five or even a small press behind it, it’s up to me to shout loud and far with the help of others. Besides setting up a fairly substantial number of blog stops on my own, I’ve also opted for the assistance of two successful blog tour companies that I’ve worked with in the past. Both reach different audiences and are taking a different approach.

Buy the Book Blog Tours is handling REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT for long haul exposure with blogs posts, interviews, and reviews – for eight weeks and over twenty-five stops beginning October 6 under this attractive banner:

For a quick, out-of-the-blocks push, Bewitching Blog Tours is hosting a “Release Day Blitz” on October 13, the first day REMEMBERED BY MOONLIGHT is available to readers, also with posts, interviews and reviews, but with one loud boom instead of continuous fire.

Both sites are still accepting hosts for their tours so, if you want to help me make some noise, jump on board. Or stop in and comment once the stops are listed. Here’s a peek at what you’d be promoting:


Where was Max?

Had she expected it to be easy having him here so close and yet so agonizingly far away? Bad enough watching him in that antiseptic clinic cell, a prisoner of his own panicked madness, raving, raging, out of control. Worse was having him here in the lush, sexy surroundings he’d built for them to share, temptingly near yet impossible to reach.

A bargain made in heartbreak hell.

Though she might be tortured by cherished memories, he was not. She was nothing to him but a protective port in his emotional storm. And that knowledge was driven home like a stake through the heart every time they were together. Every time he stared at her through those cool green eyes without the slightest flicker of response. Every time he took that distancing step back to evade the casual graze of her hand. Every time he lay next to her in the night and silence created a force field of discomfort.

Tripping over him every minute of the damned day only emphasized how much she wanted, needed him back.

And underlined how far away he was.

Praise from Publisher’s Weekly for the “By Moonlight” series:

“A paranormal romance series with intriguing characters and zippy action . . . Gideon masters the tension required to keep her complex and engaging story moving.”

“Vivid writing, plot twists and a satisfying ending will keep readers coming back to Gideon’s magical NOLA.”

“Rich and complex. Enticing new dimensions to the Shifter world keep things fresh. Gideon delivers well-crafted prose and page-turning tension.”

If you’ve had tours or been a tour host, what have your experiences been?
