Bone Deep Release! (Giveaway News!)

It's October! Which means it's the month for Bone Deep! A release date has been set and it's next Saturday, aka, 10/10! Keep checking back because I'll be posting the link to the buy page directly here as soon as it's up for sale! For those of you I've promised review copies to, they'll be coming sometime before the end of next week! :) There's a giveaway for this as well!!!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

If anyone else is interested in Read 2 Review, please message me privately on my Goodreads.com account, here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5171960.Tempest_C_Avery I do have a couple extra review copies I'm willing to give out, so if interested do let me know!

I did a cover reveal a while back, so you've all probably seen it before, but here it is again to the left! I've also mentioned a few times that this book is written in a slightly different style than many of you are used to (those of you who've read me before, anyway) so I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did writing it! If you haven't checked out the blurb, you can do so by hitting up the Upcoming page link at the top left, or by scrolling down to an earlier blog post. It's been posted a few times so not going to repeat it again right now to save space.


That huge giveaway is still going on!!! We're dipping into month two, and there's only until December to sign up for a chance to win one of six different awesome prize packs! Each hold different items which are all listed in the previous post, but a few of these things are paperback books, jewelry, stickers, bags, etc. There's a different prize pack for each of the new books I'm releasing during the E.E.R.Y.W, and because of this in order to qualify to win YOU HAVE TO COMMENT WHICH PRIZE YOU WOULD LIKE if you won. This can be either on this post, or the one prior with all the details. I know having to sign in in order to post a comment is tedious, but these items cost money and there are a lot of them. I don't want to end up sending someone a pack they have no interest in getting. That would suck for you and for whoever really wanted it and ended up not getting it. There are a bunch of other ways to enter as well, including leaving a question for a character in the Ask Away section! This can be done multiple times, which means more chances to win! You can also answer a few questions about my book Unhinged, which is currently being offered for FREE in honor of this giveaway! It can be found here: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/303574

HUGE Giveaway!!!! :)

Alright guys, in honor of my Epic End of Year Release Wave (not what I'm really calling it, lol) I've decided to hold another giveaway! Except, this is probably the biggest giveaway I have ever hosted, and definitely the one that's lasted the longest! AND if that's not motivation enough, one of the ways you can enter is by reading Unhinged for FREE! Keep reading to find out how! I know this post is SUPER long, but trust me, it'll be worth it in the end! So, first things first, the E.E.Y.R.W (ok, that's totally what I'm calling it) description for those of you stopping by for the first time or just haven't checked out the coming soon section of the blog:

Unbound kicked off the wave by being released last Wednesday!!!! This is the third book in the Underworld Saga that a lot of people have been waiting for! Don't miss out seeing Hadrian and Spencer do their thing!


Bone Deep will finally be released next month (October)!!! The exact date has yet to be set, so keeping checking back, but IT WILL be next month! If you haven't heard about this yet, check out some of the previous posts, or head over to the Upcoming Books section to not only read the blurb, but also find a link that reads you to the first few chapters which can be read for free!!!

After that....

Know Thyself will hit the (digital) shelves FINALLY after sitting around collecting dust for almost two years. Not too much has been released about this except for the blurb, which can again be found on the Upcoming Books section, and the cover image, which can also be found there. This is a dystopian (my first) teen novel in which a girl wakes up with no memories and is forced to go about her life pretending otherwise. This is the first of a two book series titled The Trouble with Knowing. This is intended for a late November/early December release.

AND lastly......

Prisoner of Glass is tentatively planned for a December release. Pretty much nothing has been said about this book, I've been keeping it very hush-hush, and I plan on keeping it that way until closer to release time. However, I will tell you (because it's been up on the Upcoming Release page anyway) that it is a teen sci-fi/paranormal that revolves around aliens.

As a side note, more chapters of the second book of the Coven trilogy are going to be continuously released onto my Wattpad page throughout this time period as well!!!

If you read through the list, you'll notice that all of these prizes come in handmade duct tape purses!

Same with the origami pieces that are being offered in the Fan Kit! If you counted, you'll have noted that there are six different kits, therefore there will be SIX winners (in honor of the Six from the Dreamer trilogy)! This is a TON of stuff, and here's how you can win:


Earn entries by doing one (or more) of these things,

           -Reading Unhinged (which is currently available for FREE here https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/303574 Then, you simply answer the question provided by sending me a goodreads message here: https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5171960.Tempest_C_Avery

The question is up on the giveaway, but here it is just in case: "What is the third river Hadrian brings Spencer to?"

And/or this one: "Where do Spencer's parents work?"

Remember! Post the answer in a PRIVATE MESSAGE to me on goodreads. Any answer posted here will be deleted!

          -Posting a comment below (or on any of the posts I make where this giveaway entry form is posted)! In the comment, tell me which kit you'd be most excited to win! You MUST answer this in order to qualify!

        -Posting a question in the Ask Away section of this blog. Ask any of the characters a question to gain entry!

        -Follow me on Goodreads! Again, here's the link to my account https://www.goodreads.com/author/show/5171960.Tempest_C_Avery

        -Prove you've read me before! You can do this by providing me information from any of my books that only a reader would know! Again, please make sure to private message me these responses, as posting them here would give others a way of cheating!

       -Review (counts if you have in the past!) any of my books before! This means an HONEST review, so even if you've given me one star, or two stars, etc. and not a rave review, that's ok! Honesty is the best policy and I in no way want you to lie about your likes and dislikes! Just post a link to your review on Goodreads, or your blog, below (or any comment section where this giveaway is mentioned) so that we can all check them out!

     -Follow this blog! Pretty self explanatory I think.

    -Vote on the poll in the top right corner of this blog! :)

Alright, so those are all the ways you can win! Let me just take the time to mention that I will be checking to make sure those who enter actually follow the rules. Unfortunately, many, if not most, of the people who signed up for my previous giveaway were disqualified for not being honest. Don't click an entry claiming to have left a post if you didn't. All of these items cost me money, and unfortunately as an indie author, I don't have much of that. I'm doing this because I think it's a fun way to kick of the end of the year, welcome in my new stuff, as well as get some people a chance to read some of my work they might not have heard about or been able to before. Sorry to be blunt, but just wanted to make sure everyone understood these rules are here for a reason and anyone who doesn't follow them will be disqualified.

Obviously this is a really long giveaway, seeing as how it doesn't end until December! Because of that, I'll be posting about it more as the months progress, as well a posting photos of all of the prizes! So, if you're curious what they're going to look like, keep stopping back to see! AND some options for entering can be done more than once! So that's more ways you can earn entries!

Unbound Out! Unhleashed on Sale! Unhigned FREE for a Limited Time!

***Unbound is out!!!!***
...And in honor of this, I've taken a dollar off the sale price for the second book in the series, Unleashed, AND decided to make the first book in the Saga, Unhinged, FREE for a limited time! So, if you've ever wanted to start this series, and/or if you've never read anything by me before here's your chance to finally do so, and for free! These books will only be available at their discounted prices for the rest of this week, so by Monday all prices will have returned to normal! Get them while you can! If this is your first time visiting, here's a blurb for the series as a whole to get you started! Links to all of these books have been provided below as well!
Spencer Perry has everything: popularity, a close-knit group of friends, and her soul mate. Until the latter dies, of course. A shell of her former self without him, and desperate to find a way to get him back, Spencer forces her way into the Greek Underworld, via Ferryman transportation. There, she makes a deal with Hades-aka Hadrian-six months spent below in exchange for Micah's life. But how can she trust a guy who literally lives among fire and brimstone to keep his word? And why are strange things happening around her all of a sudden? What could a god possibly want with her?All signs point towards Hadrian, but something about that just doesn't feel right to her. Something that she hopes has nothing to do with her growing attraction towards him.  


 Free until Monday!


A dollar off until Monday!



Just released!!!!

It's Coming!!!!

Unbound is finally being released!

For everyone who's waited patiently for this book, THANK YOU! And to show my appreciation, I'm doing giveaways!!!!!!!!!! Sign up below for a chance to win a FREE copy of this book! One lucky winner will get an eBook bundle of all three books! (There's only one more to go!!). BONUS: everyone who wins will receive a never before read short story set in the Underworld!

The first two books are available for sale at Smashwords.com! Unhinged is also up on Amazon, the link of which can be found in the previous post!

If any of you have checked out Beguiling Trickery already, you should know that that book takes place somewhere between the start and end of Unbound! If any of you haven't checked it out yet, might I suggest doing so? I certain Reaper makes an appearance you might not want to miss. ;) I've also been handing ebook copies of Beguiling Trickery out for free in exchange for review, so if interested and you don't feel like reading it directly off the site Swoonreads (where you can read this and many other books for free!) let me know! I'd be happy to send over a review copy!

Back to Unbound! Without giving anything away, last we checked in Unleashed, Spencer had made some pretty big decisions and all choices have consequences. Wondering about what hers will be? Don't miss out! The book will officially be released September 16th!


It's been six months since Spencer made the deal with the god of the Underworld: a year of spending nights below. Now that she's finally given into her feelings for Hadrian, she hopes her second life will start getting less complicated. Of course, considering her new world is filled with Reapers, demons, and malicious spirits, that doesn't seem likely. What does surprise her is the way her ex-soul mate Micah St. James is treating her. Ever since they broke up he's been giving her the cold shoulder, and the more she worries about where they stand, the more she ends up putting a wedge between her and Hadrian. She chose the god for a reason, now she just has to keep that in mind while they fight off the attacks of an evil Persephone hell bent on tearing them apart. By any means necessary. She's already lost Micah. She'd die--again--if the original Gravewalker got her way and managed to steal Hadrian as well.

Free Reads (Underworld Short Story!), Excerpts, Release Dates, and More!!!


So I suck.

There, I said it.

I know I've been away WAY too long, but I've been seriously busy! If you read the post previous to this one (which has been up for a few weeks now), you know how crazy life's been for me! But, my coworker is back, meaning I won't be working 9 1/2 hour days any longer, so life can resume! Yay!

But enough of that, thanks to everyone who's been so patient waiting for the third book in the Underworld saga, as well as the other books that have been shelved on the back burner for the past few months. Also, to everyone who's asked me about the second books in either/or both the Dreamer trilogy and/or the Trickster trilogy. I've been answering a lot of questions about these, especially about the second books for both series and when they'll be available. I've mentioned before in previous posts that I'm forced to keep the first books available only on Swoonreads.com for a total of six months. Until this time period is up, I won't be releasing the second books. But keep checking back, because as soon as I'm able (and they're written) I'll post about it here!

I've also been promising a couple other books, both of which have been written for some time now, and are just slowly making their way through the tedious editing/rewrite process. Being an indie author makes it hard for me time wise, because I have to do everything myself. That's also why sometimes mistakes slip by me, or I accidently upload the unedited copy (this has happened. Yikes). Hopefully, next month will be a month of releases from me, however, where I hope to at the very least get two of the three books I have out there (Bone Deep, and Unbound, Underworld #3).

For the next couple of weeks, Unhinged, is free for download again!!!! So, if you haven't yet read it, here's your chance to do so for FREE!!!! Here's the link: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/303574


Thank you! And thanks for baring with me! To prove how ecstatic I am, I'm offering up a FREE short story, told in Hadrian's POV! All you have to do is go to the Ask Me Anything section of this blog, and ask one of the characters (doesn't matter which) a question. Any question. Just leave it in the comments section, and be sure to address it to them. It doesn't even have to be to characters explicitly from the Underworld, but any of my others as well. Then leave your email (make sure to put the (@) and (dot) like this so you don't let robots are jerks spam you!) as well as what format you'd like (ePub, .mobi, PDF) and I'll send it over to you! If you have questions for me, feel free to leave those there as well. :) You can ask as many questions as you want! Including of characters of my book that has yet to be released, Bone Deep. Speaking of which....


I've decided to stop being horrible and just release an excerpt. Keep in mind, this book is written in a completely different style than any of my others. While my general voice should be similar (it's still me writing it, after all) the format of the story is very different. Hopefully you all like it. So, here's a SHORT excerpt, of the book that will "hopefully" be released next month (aka almost this month or October).

Here it is:

Bone Deep Excerpt:

“I’m well aware of your position within Ouroboros, Mila.” He crossed his arms over his chest, ran his gaze down the length of her body. But he didn’t join her, didn’t even move an inch closer.

“Then why?” She adjusted his silk pillow beneath her head.

Another one of their sudden silences passed between them, and then, “People don’t talk to you honestly, do they? They don’t speak their minds. You could get them hurt.”

“I don’t need anyone to do my dirty work,” she ground out.

“No,” he agreed, “you wouldn’t. And I’m sure everyone else at this hub and all the others know it as well. You walk by and people bow their heads. You speak and they listen. You make a decision and they follow it.”

“Is this going somewhere?” she snapped, her ire growing. “Or are you pitching me something?”

“You think there’s something up my sleeves?” He shook his head. “You’re overly cautious.”

“Like you said,” she shrugged, “I have people to protect.”

“You could report me to the council,” he told her. At her look he elaborated. “If it would make you feel better.”

She wouldn’t have to worry about a possible loon running through their ranks, that was for sure. Other than that, however, she couldn’t see an upside to turning him over. They wouldn’t really do much anyway, not unless she said she actually did want him kicked out. He hadn’t done anything wrong. He’d been pretty forthright, but she sort of liked it.

He was right about one thing. People tended to avoid telling her how they felt. Unless it was about how excited they were to go off on a hunt, or how badass they were at sparing, there were very few real conversations had between her and anyone not in Gavril’s squad.
And now one of those few people she could talk to was dead.

           “I’m sick of people hiding around me,” she confessed before she could change her mind.

He nodded, such understanding in his expression that she momentarily wondered over it. “I know the feeling.”

“Are you suggesting we confide in one another?” she asked. “I barely know you.”

“I can say the same.”

“Yes, but—”

“You’re a princess?” he filled in for her.

She bit the inside of her cheek, unable to stop her smile. “Calling me egotistical?”

“You did tell me not to call you princess.”

“I told you to call me Mila. Not the same.”


“I know you’ve got an angle,” she told him, sobering some. “Everybody does. I’m going to find out what yours is.”

“You’re welcome to try,” he challenged.

She tossed her long legs over the side of the bed, making sure that when she stood,  her body came nearly flush against his own. She took a moment to admire his bare chest, then gave him a piercing stare of her own from underneath her sooty lashes.

“I’ll see in the morning, Rouge,” she said.

He was clearly attempting to fight off a grin. And failing. “It is morning, Mila.”

She thought about starting up again, losing herself in more of their banter, but smartly kept her mouth shut. Instead, she nodded once and headed for the door, smiling to herself the whole way down the hall.
