Hi there! It’s March 29th and THE SHADOW GUARD is finally out and about in a store near you, both in print and e-book!
To celebrate, I’m holding a Release Day Party at Bitten by Books, complete with giveaway and chatter about the wacky things that happen while writing a book. I promise to hang out by my computer all day so I can answer your questions and keep on chatting, on any topic you come up with. (Okay, so maybe my dog Honey thinks I’m doing this so she can chase squirrels all day. But this is all good for everyone, right?)
Hugs and kisses to everyone! Please stop by when you get a chance!

I’m blogging today at RT Book Reviews about what inspired THE SHADOW GUARD.
Please stop by if you get a chance and find out what odd set of three ingredients inspired this book! Or ask me any other question you like, at one of my favorite review sites.

Wow! Pizza, friends, AND talk about romance books? I am so there!
Today I’m visiting The Lora Leigh Romance Book Discussion Group Hosted by Lora Leigh. It takes an RSVP to get in but it’s definitely one of the best reading groups around. I can hardly wait to settle down and chat!
Plus, I’m bringing a special gift for each attendee thanks to my awesome editor.
See you there, fellow readers!

Hi there! Astrid’s doings have made it into a podcast with other powerful women’s adventures!
Join hostess Jean Marie Ward for this March’s Woman Power collection of short readings from women writing across the realm of speculative fiction.
The Broad Pod is sponsored by Broad Universe, an international, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, honoring, and celebrating women writers of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Find out more about our organization, including new fiction released by women, more podcasts, and information about writing and publishing for women, at our website.
March is Women’s History Month, and this month’s talented women writers spotlight many aspects of Woman Power—and powerful women:
Charged with treason, Gail Z. Martin’s pregnant queen Kiera must wage a war of words to save herself, her friends, and her unborn child.
In Larissa N. Niec’s selection, the goddess Rhianna’s high priestess embarks on a dangerous spirit quest to seek help for her dying land.
Theresa Crater introduces her heroine—and us—to the legendary Morgan le Fey in the land beneath the hallowed hill.
Then journey with Diane Whiteside to present-day Virginia, where a psychically gifted homicide detective learns just how powerful a woman working for the FBI can be.
Finally, soar into the future with Danielle Ackley-McPhail and a squadron of hell-raising women fighter pilots led by the infamous Scarlet Jay.
Sit back. Enjoy. But don’t expect to relax—not around these women.

Thank you to Jean Marie for being a great hostess, all our readers, and all of you who share and enjoy these fun snippets of fiction and poetry!
