Read the Magic, Wear the Magic: The #RiteToReign Authors T-Shirt Sale!

I have a confession to make: I am a sucker for collectible t-shirts.

It started when I bought my first concert shirt. I was 15 and went to see Guns N Roses open for Aerosmith on their Permanent Vacation tour. When I saw the shirt back with the cities listing the venues, and saw *my show* listed, I knew I'd keep it forever. Today, I have two big totes full of concert tees and other commemorative shirts in the closet. (And, when I went to see GNR last year, 29 years TO THE MONTH of my first concert, you know I dug out the same shirt I'd worn to the first show. That's how serious I am about t-shirts!)

That's why my author group is holding a t-shirt drive to earn ad money for our upcoming boxed set. I'm not the only one who uses their closet space as a scrapbook :)

We are trying so hard to hit the 7000 mark in book sales to be in the running for the USA Today Bestseller list. At 99c a copy, you'd think it would be a piece of cake...but the trouble lies in reaching new eyes and ears to tell about our book release. The only way to reach those new readers lies in advertising...on places like Facebook, BookBub, Amazon, and various promotional websites.

When you buy a Witch, Please tee, not only will you get a fun, snarky t-shirt--you'll also help us afford to purchase more ads. (Not to mention, you'll be promoting us every time you step out in this cute tee!) All proceeds go to the ad fund.

Why are we doing a t-shirt drive?

Making a national bestsellers list is the dream shared by every author when they release their book. Big-name authors who are published by big-name publishers often have little difficulty doing just that. That's because they have built-in audiences and huge platforms including TV spots, in-store hype-up, and all the marketing power a big-name publisher possesses.

For the indie author, who lacks all the power and resources of a big-name anything, achieving this dream can seem like an impossibility.

The Rite to Reign authors are using the power of collective work to try and break through the indie ceiling. They've joined forces to compile a collection of 24 urban fantasy and paranormal romance novels with a wickedly fun theme...royal witches! Now, these authors are joining hands and using every spell up their sleeve to make magic happen...

Now, these authors call upon the most powerful people of all...readers! We need readers who love magical stories and we need readers who love magical threads. While we are fresh out of invisibility cloaks and wizard robes, we have the next best thing: sassy witch T-shirts that are fun to look at and comfortable to wear.

What do the shirts look like?

Here's what the shirt looks's a v neck black tee with front and back printing.
Each shirt is 25$ plus shipping. 
All proceeds go towards on-line advertising of 
RITE TO REIGN: Urban Fantasy Limited Edition Boxed Set

The real question is...who wouldn't? But for those of you who like lists, here it is...

1) readers
2) writers
3) family
4) friends
5) complete strangers

14) People who think Samantha from Bewitched is iconic

OK? So...are you in or are you in?

Oh, and if you pre-order a copy of this boxed set, that would be swell, too <3 p="">

Don't forget to post a selfie and tag us with #ritetoreign when your shirt arrives. I want to see where all my witches at!

Think there's nothing worse than becoming like your mother? Try being possessed by her spirit. #TakinItBack by @ashkrafton

USA Today Bestselling Author Ash Krafton is bringing a new twist to the old swish-and-flick...magic is all in the way you cast it in TAKIN' IT BACK, her newest urban fantasy novel!

Think there's nothing worse than becoming like your mother? Try being possessed by her spirit.

Twenty-year-old Aerie hates running collateral recovery for her father’s magical supply shop. Repossession is a nasty business, even when you’re good at it. Her dream job? The store’s new Acquisitioner…but Pop says that job’s for someone who finds things, not loses them. When a mysterious amulet must be found, Aerie sees an opportunity to prove her worth to him.

That’s when a spirit trapped inside the amulet possesses her, instead. Demonic powers are handy on a door-knock or when facing down one’s nemesis, but mages can’t use the demonic ley without becoming tainted. Worse yet, the spirit may be Aerie's difficult, dead-beat, long-gone mother.

The possession will destroy Aerie if she doesn’t get the amulet off—but the only person who can do that is the guy she repo’d it from. Mr. Probable Ulterior Motive says if she finds some crummy old book she’d lost years ago, she may discover the spirit’s true identity and prevent its damnation. Aerie must entrust her fate to a complete stranger or let the demon get what it wants—and it wants Pop dead.

Gonna be one Hell of a family reunion.

Lara Croft meets "The Magicians" in this tale of magic, adventure, and hidden truths...

Grab TAKIN’ IT BACK today for a possessing urban fantasy read that won’t let you go!

Hear ye, hear ye! #Audiobook collection of my #Demimonde trilogy is complete!

Are you an audiobook fan? Keep reading to see how to get copies of my urban fantasy trilogy through Audiobook Boom!

Narrator Kelly Pruner and I are celebrating the completion of the Demimonde in audiobook format!

WOLF’S BANE joins BLEEDING HEARTS and BLOOD RUSH in this series about an advice columnist-turned-oracle who must save her Demivampire lover from the fate that threatens each of his race: evolution and the destruction of his soul.
Like tall, dark, and brooding heroes? Like bad vampires and rock-star werewolves? Like supernatural problems and watching a snarky, good-hearted heroine trying to muddle her way through the messes those problems fling at her?

The Demimonde series is a set of emotional, exciting, addicting reads now available on audio book…so I get to listen to WOLF’S BANE whenever I’m in the car because I LOVE THAT STORY. It’s why I wrote it 😊
To help launch the set, I’m looking for reliable audiobook reviewers to help give these titles some legs. You can sign up to receive a copy of the first book, BLEEDING HEARTS through this promo link HERE (and scroll waaaaaaay down...)

Listeners who review this book and want to hear more are also eligible to receive free promotional copies of the second and third books in the series. That way, you too can listen to WOLF'S BANE whenever you're in the car because I REALLY LOVE THAT STORY! 

This promo is open to both US and UK audiobook readers. The number of copies is limited so if you’re interested in urban fantasy audiobooks, don’t delay!

If you’ve read and enjoyed the books, I’d love it if you gave the audio versions a try. Kelly becomes my Sophie *hearts* so let her become yours, too.
