Hello ladies and gents,
This has been a busy month for me so far. I’m happy with all that I’m getting done, but, admittedly, my attention is thoroughly divided without being singularly focused on any one thing. The upside: a lot will be coming in the next few weeks. The downside: I can’t cross anything off my list until then.
I have a unique opportunity for certain readers, though. I am creating a Review Team!
What is a Review Team? It’s a group or team of readers that review each of my titles as they are released.
Here are the basics:
1. You MUST be 18 years of age or older, as the majority of my titles contain adult content.
2. You must agree to provide an honest review of the title on Amazon.com, and wherever else you are able/willing to post it.
3. Your review must be posted within 2 weeks of the title’s release date.
4. A link to your review must be e-mailed to me, providing the proof necessary to maintain your active status on my RT.
PLEASE NOTE: I understand that things come up, and at times, you may not be able to review title(s) in a timely manner. The key piece here is communication. So long as you let me know, you will maintain your active status. But failing to provide a review within the designated timeframe and failing to communicate about tardiness or unexpected events will result in you being permanently barred from my Review Team in the future.
1. FREE books.
2. A FREE copy of up to 5 of my backlist titles.
3. FREE swag! I will be mailing random Thank You’s to each person on my review team.
Basically, get your hands on new titles for FREE, often before they’re released yet and extras every now and then, such as sneak peeks at upcoming titles.
As of right now, I am limiting this team to 100 individuals.
1. If you are located internationally, you may still sign up for my Review Team. I simply as that you specify your location for review posting purposes. (Other countries have a different Amazon address.)
2. If you are a professional reviewer, you may still sign up for my Review Team, but I ask that you specify that you are a professional reviewer.
3. An official release date and due date will be provided with each review copy provided.
4. Review copies are available in two file types: PDF (can be read on most any computer, tablet or phone) or .mobi (specifically for Kindle or the Kindle reading app – I’ve heard you can read these files with a Kobo reader as well, but am uncertain on this.)
5. Review copies will be provided for Her Soldiers, Her Marine, Her Ranger, and Bear In Mind within the next 7 days, to be reviewed before June 30th. – The rules apply to these titles.
6. Any readers who sign up beyond the 100 slots will be notified that they were placed on a waiting list. The lists will be in order of receipt. I will be looking at the sign up time-stamps to determine placement on the Review Team list and the waiting list. Should someone fail to follow the rules, they will be barred and the next person on the waiting list will be notified.
7. At some point in the future, I will be creating a private group for the Review Team on Facebook, which will allow all of you to interact with me and each other. For now, feel free to e-mail me or friend me on Facebook HERE to message me directly there.
SIGN UP for the Review Team HERE! – Click the link and follow the instructions.
Special Note: Please do not sign up unless you feel that you are able to follow through on your commitment. Spaces are limited, and the rules will be strictly enforced. – Thank you!
Other notes and updates:
The first newsletter will go out this month! Why would you want to subscribe? Because I plan to include bonus scenes for your favorite books that will never be published, on top of exclusive contests and updates on current and past releases. If you’re interested in signing up, CLICK HERE. There is a newsletter for young adult (under 18 appropriate) and one for adults only. You can sign up for both, if you’d like. If you are under the age of 18, you can only sign up for the young adult one, as the age limit is there for a reason. The content in the 18 & older will be spicy, and not in the sense that it’s linking to erotic adult titles.
I still do not have a release date for this series from the publisher. Honestly, these things take time. Most readers do not realize that from the time a publisher contracts on a book to the time it is out on shelves is often 1-3 YEARS. There are a lot of behind-the-scenes lists that must be completed for each release. Distributors / Bookstores have their own list of requirements to be fulfilled as well. And, once a bookstore purchases a title to stock on their shelves, they don’t immediately go there. For instance, what Barnes & Noble is selling on their shelves in December, they are purchasing from the publisher(s) in April. There are lengthy steps with these things. I promise, the moment I have an update for y’all, I will provide it!
I am attending author this year at Indie Bookfest Orlando. The dates are July 31st – August 2nd. For more information about this event and tickets, CLICK HERE.
I now have a tab on my website dedicated to you. If you’re interested in reviewing one of my titles, please CLICK HERE for more information.
Many people don’t know that I do them. It’s my side job, so to say. If you’re interested in utilizing my services or obtaining more information, please CLICK HERE.
POSTED BELOW! Over the next 2 months, you can expect more from BOTH the Military Quickies AND Black Fall Bears series!
Thank you to each and every one of you who has continued to allow me to live my dream. Writing has always been my passion, my outlet, my life. It’s gotten me through good times and bad. It’s been an amazing journey, one that I will always cherish. And not a day goes by that I don’t recognize that I am where I am because of YOU. Because of every person who has bought, borrowed, read and shared my titles. Because of each individual who has supported me in some facet over the years. You are a treasure to me. You are appreciated every single day, and always will be. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I adore you all!
I hope each and every one of you has a wonderful weekend! School is out for my children, which means more headaches, more chaos and more fun. It’s a good time of year to make memories, despite the intense heat here.
Make some memories. Read some books. Drink something good. And enjoy each day you’re blessed with. – Christin

BEAR IN MIND
Black Fall Bears
Plus sized Bryn had resigned herself to a life of solitude, despite her best friend’s efforts. She had accepted her fate and was okay simply focusing on finishing her degree and working fulltime at the coffee shop. The only time she doubted herself was when Bear was around. Then all of her efforts shifted to taming her intense desire for the sexy male.
Orson Bear avoided pursuing Bryn for five years, giving her the opportunity to achieve her goals first. It had been hell on he and his bear, but it was the right decision.
Or so he’d thought.
When Bryn’s life is threatened one night, Bear is forced to act fast, exposing his long held secret: that she is his mate. Shaken by the events, he shares the truth of what he is and what she means to him and his bear.
It’s only when Bryn walks away that Bear realizes his mistake all those years ago. He should have said something from the beginning. He should have chased her. Because the truth was, he needed her more than she needed him.
Or so he’d thought.

Black Fall is a small mountain town. Despite everyone knowing everyone, as this series will unveil, rarely do we know everything about everyone. We all have secrets. We all have desires. And we all have a bear to tame.
Note: Each title is a standalone, novella-to-full-length book featuring a new set of characters: a BBW, a bear shifter and zero cliffhangers. Older characters will return throughout the series in a secondary capacity, so it is best to read the series in order, but it is not required.
