GraveTells Author of the Year, 2013 Epic Award Finalist, ebooks in Top 1000 on Amazon Kindle, and more!

I had a rather fantastic end to a wonderful 2012!

A few of my books have been dipping in and out of the Top 1000 positions on Amazon Kindle Store in the UK, with Crave (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 2) sitting in the Top 1000 for the past seven days! Other books that have hit the Top 1000 there this week are Covet (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 1) and Prophecy: Caelestis & Aurorea (Vampires Realm romance series book 2).

I also woke up this morning to see that FIVE out of the Top 10 Fantasy Romance books on Apple iTunes were my books. That’s right! Five out of ten! How amazing is that? Number 3 was Prophecy: Dark Moon Rising (Vampires Realm romance series book 3), Number 4 was Seduce (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 3), Number 6 was Prophecy: Caelestis & Aurorea(Vampires Realm romance series book 2), Number 9 was Covet (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 1), and Number 10 was Her Dark Angel (Her Angel romance series book 1). Crave (Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series book 2) would be higher than Seduce, but Apple shoved it into erotic romance… still, 5 spots out of 10? Yay.

A lovely email dropped into my inbox this week announcing that I had been chosen as the GraveTells Author of the Year 2012 in their end of year awards. I was also nominated in several categories in their readers choice awards, but didn’t manage to snag any of the top spots as I was snowed under with, well, Snow oddly enough. Work on Unleash and Bewitch kept me rushed off my feet during the period that voting was open. Still, my disappointment was completely obliterated when I received the email and the wonderful graphic declaring me the author the website had chosen based on merit rather than votes!

Here’s the shiny graphic that I will now proudly display here on my website somewhere!

 

 

If you click on the image, or the blog name above, it will take you to the page where they show all the winners they chose in the different categories, as well as say some rather lovely things about me. I’m really chuffed about this!

 

I also received notification that Her Demonic Angel (Her Angel romance series book 5) was selected as one of the Favourite Reads of 2012 by Cocktails and Books! Iris had some wonderful stuff to say about the book in the post on their blog.

 

Her Demonic Angel
Felicity Heaton
A demonic angel with a heart of ice, Veiron walks a dark path with vengeance on his mind. Nothing will sway him from his mission to destroy his master… until he risks his life to enter Hell once more to save a mortal female. The fiery beauty makes him burn with hungers he must battle and needs he cannot deny, tempting him to surrender body and soul to her.

Erin is convinced her refusal to do the Devil’s bidding will see her die in a terrifying realm straight out of her nightmares. The last thing she expects is the lethally sensual warrior who breaks into her cell and awakens the darkest desires of her heart and a fierce longing to know the heat of his caress.

Pulled into an incredible world where war is set to ignite and darkness is on the rise, Erin races with Veiron to escape the Devil’s legions in a journey fraught with danger and filled with passion that flares white-hot.

When Erin is faced with a life-shattering realisation and an extraordinary destiny, will their love give them the strength to battle both Heaven and Hell or will they be parted forever?

This on top of the fact that earlier in 2012 I received notification that my vampire romance novel Heart of Darkness was one of the finalists in the 2013 Epic Ebook Awards! I’ll find out in March whether it won the title of best paranormal romance.

If you haven’t read the book yet, then here’s a little excerpt from it and the blurb so you can see what it’s all about… you can also download an extended excerpt from the book in PDF format: http://www.felicityheaton.co.uk/long-excerpts/heartofdarkness-heatonF.pdf

 

Heart of Darkness
Felicity Heaton

A vampire prince on a four hundred year old mission to avenge his murdered sister…

Aleksandr Nemov won’t stop until the last of the vampire hunter’s progeny is wiped from the Earth. Each kill has stolen a piece of his humanity, pushing him towards the black abyss all vampires hold within their hearts. Now he is teetering on the edge, close to devolving into a beast, and time is running out as he tracks the last hunter to Prague. There he finds a beautiful woman who could be his one chance for salvation, but is it already too late for him?

A vampire guard who will do whatever it takes to protect those she loves…

Elise is dedicated to her duty. It’s the only thing she has left. All that changes when she meets Aleksandr in Prague and her master grants him permission to stay at her bloodline’s mansion. She knows all about Aleksandr but none of it prepares her for how she feels when the legendary prince’s hunt becomes one for her heart. Elise battles him with all of her strength but can she stop herself from falling for the handsome hunter? When he reveals the depth of the corruption in his soul, will she have the strength to face the pain in her past and do whatever it takes to save him?

Heart of Darkness – My vampire romance book is a finalist at the EPIC Ebook Awards 2013!

I’m really excited to announce that my stand alone vampire romance novel, Heart of Darkness, has been chosen as a finalist in the Paranormal Romance category at the EPIC Ebook Awards 2013! I’m totally thrilled about this as I have a soft spot for Heart of Darkness and the rakish yet damaged hero Aleksandr. I won’t know until next year whether the book has won the category, but I’m just excited that it was selected as a finalist.

Forbidden Blood
Felicity Heaton
In a dark world where vampires exist and where Source Blood, a rare human blood type, can bestow godlike powers upon them, the vampire Venators of the Sovereignty fight to protect the humans by banishing those who drink it to the endless dark.

Exiled from his family and with only his duty to sustain him, Kearn has been on the trail of an elusive Source Blood abuser for three years. When he saves a beautiful human female from the vampire’s grasp, it turns out she’s the lead he’s been waiting for. Amber is a Source Blood and the perfect bait, but for who?

As they race to catch the vampire and survive the cruel games he plays, Amber is pulled deeper into Kearn’s world and discovers the painful secrets he hides behind his handsome but emotionless exterior—hurt that she has the power to heal if she is brave enough.

Forbidden Blood is a dark, sensual tale of betrayal, revenge and a love that knows no bounds.
