I woke up in a panic this morning wondering if I'd renewed my dental hygiene license last March! Yes, over six months ago. I couldn't stay in bed. I had to go through my files and be sure it was still valid...good news, it is!

Bad news...what does that say about my thoughts and dreams. Being an author was and is my dream. I'm living it AND loving it!! That said, like anything else in life, the future is unclear. There are no guarantees.

As I'm sure you've read by other authors, the market is constantly changing. Our sales are fluctuating and what worked yesterday isn't today. Well, I believe that's life! It isn't a phenomenon exclusive to the world of publishing. It isn't something the we as authors are experiencing and bloggers and readers are is about change.

My dream is to change with it. I pray that in six months, a year, or six years, you will still recognize the name Aleatha Romig!

I pray that as I continue to write, you continue to read.

I also realize there are millions of GREAT authors and books. I know that I'm up against some stiff competition for placement on your Kindle, iPad, or bookshelf. That said, what gives me strength to continue my quest is that I'm not in competition with the other authors. I LOVE sharing the works of others. IMO no one reads one book. So, I promote friends as well as authors I don't know. If I like something, I'm hopeful my readers will to. AND I've been blessed with so many other authors who do the same. For that, I thank them! AND I thank each and everyone of you who has recommended my books to friends and family! This community has welcomed me and in turn I want to build it up!

I remember a patient telling me, when I was still practicing dental hygiene, that at her family Thanksgiving dinner, they were discussing Anthony Rawlings! I was shocked and thrilled.

While we all want to hit #1 NYT...what I love hearing is that my imaginary characters stay with you long enough to become a topic of discussion. we go into this very busy time of year, I ask you to remember to tell your family and friends to read my Consequences series:


and for a little more heat, my new Tales From the Darkside...first book (all in this series are standalones)...Insidious


If you'll do that for me, for you, I'll keep writing. I'll keep working to bring you more of the characters you love and love to hate and create new ones to fill your thoughts and dreams!

Thank you for all you've done for me and my family...readers, bloggers, and authors!

For now, all I can do is KEEP WRITING!!! Stay tuned for an announcement about some more Tony and Claire...and a new project that is in the works!!

I have a not well kept secret...I enjoy reading dark twisted tales as much as I enjoy writing them. Kitty Thomas has been one of my "go to" reads ever since I read COMFORT FOOD years ago!

Well, I'm excited that she has a new book coming called BROKEN DOLLS. And do you know what? If you will arrive to you on Christmas day!!! How's that for a great Christmas present?!!

The presale price is ONLY $2.99...but that will be going up AFTER presales!

Let me tell you about her new book, and then, if you comment below, you could win a signed copy of her current book BLOOD MATE! 

First, let me introduce...BROKEN DOLLS!!

Book Description:

Mina Calloway always finds herself in the hands of the wrong master: Gentle at first, then brutally sadistic and abusive. She no longer believes it’s possible to find a man who will be gentle with her. After seeing a kink-friendly therapist for months, the doctor makes her an illicit offer she isn’t yet smart enough to refuse: “Let me find you a good master.”

Brian Sloan is a borderline sociopath with a dark and brutal past. Only taking his sadistic urges out on the women at a submissive training house allows him to sleep through the night. When Brian sees Mina, she should be ripe for the picking, but her damage is too similar to his own. Can he fight past his demons to protect the one person he considers worth saving?

Note: This book happens in the same world as Guilty Pleasures with reoccurring settings and characters. However, it is not a direct sequel and it isn't necessary to have read Guilty Pleasures first. If you enjoy this book, however, you may also enjoy Guilty Pleasures by Kitty Thomas.

Book Description:

WARNING: This is a story about love, betrayal, redemption, and sanity. This is a dark emotional/psychological journey. This is not a "vampire romance". If you're looking for a vampire romance following traditional romance genre conventions, you will be disappointed. If you're looking for hardcore erotica you will be disappointed. If you're looking for something dark, literary, and psychological that explores human relationships without catering to traditional "happy endings", then you may very much enjoy this story. If you're looking for a mindf**k, then welcome to my world.

Blood Mate, a dark fairy tale...

Nicole has been happily married to big shot attorney, Dominic Rose for ten years, but soon after their anniversary he grows cold--as if she doesn't exist. Meanwhile, another man has been pursuing her far too intently for comfort.

August Corinth is a six-hundred-year-old vampire, cursed to kill and suffer the pain of his victims each night until he can find the one woman who can resist his thrall, his blood mate. Once he's found her, there are no lines he won't cross to claim the promised salvation even if it means taking away everything and everyone she loves.
