St. Martin's Press is doubling down on giveaways this week by running not one, but two simultaneous giveaway contests for my new novel Between Two Fires! You can sign up for the chance to win a copy at Goodreads and/or The Reading Room. They're giving away a good amount of copies this round, so sign up today!

Also, I've been getting pings and emails from folks across the country when they've purchased my book, and it's been exhilarating to say the least. So far I've confirmed that my novel has sold in at least 33 different states of the union (including Washington D.C.). I'm sooo thrilled and humbled by the outpouring of support and interest in Between Two Fires, and I can't wait to see how many more customers in the remaining states end up sporting a copy of my debut novel in the days to come!

Crystal's Big Cover Reveal!!!

TIMELESS (#3 Maiden of Time) by Crystal Collier #CoverReveal

Book Title: TIMELESS (Maiden of Time #3)
Author: Crystal Collier
Genre: YA Paranormal Historical
Release Date: November 1, 2016


In 1771, Alexia had everything: the man of her dreams, reconciliation with her father, even a child on the way. But she was never meant to stay. It broke her heart, but Alexia heeded destiny and traveled five hundred years back to stop the Soulless from becoming.

In the thirteenth century, the Holy Roman Church has ordered the Knights Templar to exterminate the Passionate, her bloodline. As Alexia fights this new threat—along with an unfathomable evil and her own heart—the Soulless genesis nears. But none of her hard-won battles may matter if she dies in childbirth before completing her mission.

Can Alexia escape her own clock?

Success in Sacramento!!!

The second stop on my book tour in Sacramento, California this weekend was superb! Before I expand on that, however, I'm over at Sherry's today for a groovy interview. Stop on by:)

So I had a great time signing books and talking about Between Two Fires at the Avid Reader bookshop in Sacramento this weekend. We sold out all of my books! It's a good thing to be sure, but I wish we could've gotten everyone a copy right then and there. Thankfully, that's what order forms are for. Thanks again to everyone who came out and offered so much love and support!

My Book in Libraries!!!

Ok, laugh if you want, but I'm super pumped to see my book appear in libraries! More on that in a sec, as I want to mention that Carol Kilgore is giving me a shout out on her blog today, so take a trip on over if you like:)

So libraries are very special places to me, locales where my wife, kids, and I often hang out. Not only have my local libraries started buying copies of my book, but so have others elsewhere. The Library of Congress and some big libraries in L.A. have ordered my novel as well, just to name a few. On top of that, I found online an unusually high degree of them being bought by libraries in Canada. I guess I have to make a visit!

Book Signing Tips

So, I'm learning a few things about book signings so far. But first, let me tell you where I'm at today. Come on over to Julie Flanders' groovy blog and hang out with us!

One thing I learned from my most recent book signing (other than how to talk and write at the same time), is the importance of dating a signature. I hadn't realized this before, but apparently in ARCs and hardbacks collectors prefer if an author writes in the date in addition to providing their signature and message. For hardcore collectors, this adds a layer of authenticity to the book. So I've been doing this myself, and attendees at my book signings have been appreciative of it.
