It's AMTP Week... meet Phoenix!

Meet Phoenix

Phoenix Pierce is putting the pieces back together after the death of his father. Between his multi-million dollar company, the NHL team he now owns, and the endless supply of women willing to share a bed for one night of uninhibited sex, he finds himself going through the motions. Until he meets Mia. Although he’s on a mission to win her, that doesn’t solve his problem of the other person he wants… the man he has denied himself for years.

Love me some... Jason Statham

*sigh*


I absolutely love this man. 


Jason Statham

'nuf said!

He's so freaking sexy!

I recently watched Homefront (loved it, by the way) and my infatuation with him was renewed.








And definitely looking forward to seeing him in Fast 7!

I love you both. With my whole heart. Every single one of the million tiny pieces that it once was. It’s whole again. Stronger than ever.” ~Mia

Love me some... iPhone

I've been attached to my Samsung Galaxy phone and tablet for some time now - I mean years and years and years. Don't get me wrong, I have loved them both, BUT I recently decided to try out the iPhone 6 and the iPad Air 2.

Let me just say... WOW! What did I ever do before them?

If you're not an iPhone user, you're probably scrunching your forehead at me in confusion. I know, I wasn't a believer either until I tried it.

What prompted me was a lengthy conversation with my brother-in-law and my younger brother on Christmas Day. If Apple is looking for spokespeople, they want to get in touch with them because holy crap are they huge fans. And they know all the ins and outs and secret things and cool apps and blah-blah-blah. The excitement seeped into me and I figured, why not?

So, I bought an iPhone 6 about a week and a half ago. I'm not a super user yet, but I'm working on it.




Oh, and if you're playing "Trivia Crack" (app is available on the Play store as well), come find me. I'm not very good, but I'm having fun playing!

Love me some... JUSTIFIED






Yep, you heard me right! I love me some... JUSTIFIED

As usual, I'm a little late to the game, but my oldest son, Tyler, turned me and Colt into JUSTIFIED junkies just a few weeks ago (we're catching up from the beginning - currently working on Season 3) and I have to say, I'm totally addicted. 





Raylan Givens (played by Timothy Olyphant) is my kryptonite.

Where you can find me... AND a giveaway!

I'm sure you've either seen articles relating to the changes that are occurring on social media, or you've seen posts from others. No matter where you heard about it, the fact of the matter is... changes are coming to Facebook and although the changes may not affect you and your personal use of the social media site, they will be affecting so many people, including authors, bloggers, small business, entrepreneurs, etc.

If you depend on social media to deliver information to you, you've probably noticed over the last year that the information you are seeking probably isn't reaching you in a reliable manner. Facebook has limited who can see a post and even though they're forcing us to "boost" a post (which means: charging for views), those are even limited. With that said, just like so many others who depend on Facebook to get the word out and to interact with readers/fans, these changes will affect me directly because social media is a tool that I use to engage with you, my readers, and yes, the biggest tool that I've utilized in the past is Facebook.

In order to adapt to these changes, I'm having to resort to the various tools at my disposal in order to keep in touch. Although I will still utilize Facebook, I can't guarantee that you'll get the information if you happen to follow me. Below you will find the numerous ways in which I try to engage with my readers and I'm asking you to PLEASE follow me on any or all of the other options listed below:

Tools that I utilize to push information to you:

1. My blog - Right here is where you'll get major updates (and sometimes some crazy rambling) directly to your email if you so choose.

2. Via my newsletter - My newsletter is my most reliable means of getting information directly to you. I do my best to keep it fun and it is only sent out once a month - plus anytime there are announcements (preorders, release dates) that I feel you may want. And yes, there are generally sneak peeks at upcoming books.

3. My weekly Hot Sheet - Let me just say, this is something new for me that I started just this week and we're having fun with it. The responses to the first edition that went out this past Monday were so incredible. It's short, sweet, and hopefully funny. You get a glimpse into my life on a weekly basis because after all, writing and publishing books is a business for me and you get an up-close-and-personal-look at what goes on with my team (all of them are related to me). Not to mention, I provide reminders of what is coming that week. Check out the first edition for yourself here!

4. Text messaging - If you are in the US, you can sign up to receive text messages from me. At the most, we will send out 3 per month - and these are only utilized for announcements such as book releases, preorders, book signings, blog takeovers, etc. I promise not to spam your phone.

Other social media that I use, and will continue to use so that I can interact with you, the readers - other than Facebook - are:

Twitter, tsu, Goodreads, Instagram, Google +PinterestAmazon

Now... For the fun part:
As a way to encourage you to sign up and follow me on any (or all) of these different options - and to thank you if you've already done so - I thought I'd do a little giveaway.
You could win 1 of 10 signed paperbacks! 
5 winners will receive 1 signed copy of A Million Tiny Pieces - available for preorder now with a release date of 01/20/2015.
1 winner will receive 1 signed copy of Conviction (Club Destiny, #1)
1 winner will receive 1 signed galley of Kaleb (Alluring Indulgence, #1) 
1 winner will receive 1 signed copy of  Boots Optional (Dead Heat Ranch, #0.5)
1 winner will receive 1 signed copy of Chasing Dreams (Devil's Bend, #1)
1 winner will receive 1 signed copy of Unhinged by my alter-ego Timberlyn Scott (Unhinged, #1)


It's pretty simple. Using the Rafflecopter below, follow me and enter to win!

Above all, I want to thank each and every one of you for your continued support. Without you, I wouldn't be able to do what I love to do, which is write books about the many characters who live inside my head. So, thank you!

Preorder (and giveaway) now available!

Yay! I'm so excited to announce that my very first standalone novel - A Million Tiny Pieces - is now available for preorder. The official release date is January 20th, but you can preorder now so you'll have it that day!


Note: Barnes and Noble does not offer a preorder option directly to independent authors, so the book will not be available for preorder on BN; however, it will be available on 1/20.



Let me just say... if you liked Travis or Temptation/Devotion, you WON'T want to miss this! 

Book Description:
This is a standalone novel

Mia Cantrell is happy to be rid of her lying, cheating, ex-husband. With her divorce final, Mia is moving on, grasping the reins of life once more. She’s learning to deal with the shattered remains while putting one foot in front of the other, taking control of her own decisions, and ultimately living one day at a time. Too bad the universe has put a hiccup (or two) in her well thought out plan.

Phoenix Pierce is putting the pieces back together after the death of his father. Between his multi-million dollar company, the NHL team he now owns, and the endless supply of women willing to share a bed for one night of uninhibited sex, he finds himself going through the motions. Until he meets Mia. Although he’s on a mission to win her, that doesn’t solve his problem of the other person he wants… the man he has denied himself for years.

Tarik Marx doesn’t think anyone could ever fill the void in his life the way Phoenix unknowingly has. That is until he meets Mia. Thanks to a fractured childhood, Tarik has to face a bigger problem: he doesn’t know how it feels to be loved. His past adds additional complexity when Tarik finds himself trying to figure out how he can have them both.

Is it possible for a million tiny pieces to come together again? And if they do, will that make the bond even stronger than before?

Happy New Year!

Well, it looks like 2014 has come to an end. If you're like me, you're ready to move on to 2015.

2014 was a year chock full of learning experiences for me. Needless to say, I've come out on the other side a better, stronger person and I've decided to take the knowledge I've acquired and apply it to the next year... and the year after that... and so on. I've made a few decisions that altered the course of my life, some I'm pleased with, others I still question. But I think a lot of us are like that (or at least I hope I'm not the only one). 

But, for 2015... Now, I'm READY for that. 

There are so many things coming in 2015 and I'm anxiously awaiting each and every one of them. Hmmm... let's see. Here's just a few of them:


The Nicole Edwards Hot Sheet will start coming out on January 5th and will go out every Monday to announce what's happening that week. It's gonna be a lot of fun! You won't want to miss and you can sign up for it here!




~My monthly newsletter is getting beefed up with more fun stuff, plus there's always a monthly giveaway - the only thing you have to do is sign up and look at the newsletter each month to see if you're a winner.


~My first standalone novel - A Million Tiny Pieces - will be published in January! January 20th to be exact!

~I'll have a couple of novellas releasing in boxed sets, including Adored (CD #7.5) in the Sweet Seduction Boxed Set (all proceeds from the sale of this boxed set will go to the Diabetes Research Institute via Brenda Novak's Online Auction for Diabetes Research.  


~My seventh installment in the Alluring Indulgence series - SAWYER - will be coming on March 2nd! 

~My eighth and final installment in the Alluring Indulgence series - BRENDON - will be coming on May 11th! (for those who don't want to see the series come to an end, stay tuned, I've got some exciting news that I'll announce in the coming months)

~My first book in the Sniper 1 Security series - Wait for Morning - will be coming!

~I'm scheduled for two book signings next year - both in Texas


Between you and me, I'm planning to release 13 books next year - along with those mentioned above, I'll have a couple from Club Destiny, one from Devil's Bend, one from Dead Heat Ranch, another standalone, something from Timberlyn Scott, and yes, I'm planning to have a Christmas novella set - from all your favorite characters. It's all so exciting. As of right now, 4 of those are already complete and a couple of others are nearing completion. 


 Now, we all know that sometimes things happen and changes have to be made, so don't hold me to that number, but I'm telling you now, that's my goal. 




Most importantly, I hope you'll be with me for the duration. Each and every day, I look forward to the comments and posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and various other places, along with the emails to keep me motivated. I've never known anything like this adventure I'm on now and being able to share it with you is exciting for me. 



In 2015, I've made a promise to stay in touch, to let you know what's going on with me and the Edwards family. 2014 was a rough year for us, but as I said, we've come out stronger and we're looking forward to the best year yet! 




Much love,
~Nic~
