Guest Post with Author Lisa Renee Jones and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome to the blog author Lisa Renee Jones. Lisa is the author of many books including the awesome Zodius series and has stopped by the blog today to chat. Before I give the floor over to Lisa lets get to know her some.

In 2003, award winning author Lisa Renee Jones sold her multi-state staffing agency and has since published over thirty novels and novellas across several genres. Her debuts with Blaze and Nocturne hit Bookscan’s Top 100 list and her Blaze Hotzone trilogy made a showing on the list in 2011 also. With a new Blaze trilogy, a short story for Spice, the third book in her Zodius series published with Sourcebooks, as well as an rapidly growing indie following, 2012 will bring many new stories to her readers. Booklist says about Jones’ suspense: “…truly sizzles with an energy similar to FBI tales with a paranormal twist by Julie Garwood or Suzanne Brockmann. Alpha, military, and paranormal romance readers will want Jones’ entire series.”

Places to find Lisa:

Ah Vegas....oh how I love you. Last weekend I went to Vegas to sign THE DANGER THAT IS DAMION from my Zodius Series. The series is based around a group of Super Soldiers created at Area 51. Hot Army men saving the world, and the women who save them:)

Vegas is a crazy place. You see people dressed crazy and acting crazy, and having fun like crazy. I love it. The fact that I rarely drink allows me to just sit back and watch the fun. In fact the one time I broke my rule about gambling and drinking on this trip I spilled the drink on the roulette table. It was a sign. No gambling and drinking.

But the best part of Vegas to me is the food! I love love love the buffets. It took me all of about an hour in the city to find my way to these:

If you go the Vegas, I highly recommend the Cosmopolitan Buffet and the Buffet at Planet Hollywood. We enjoyed them both very much. Mandalay Bay, not so much. Yes. My world revolves around food and I’m proud of it. And if you get a chance to hit Fat Burger -- YUM!

I’ll leave you with a bit about Damion AND I still have a few of the special gift bags from Vegas for sale. You get THE DANGER THAT IS DAMION and THE STORM THAT IS STERLING, a t-shirt, dog tags with trading cards, and a cute military duck for $12!

Details are HERE

And comment today and I’ll give away five copies of Renegade Passion or Wicked Werewolf Night -- winners choice

Lethally passionate, wickedly dangerous...

Renegade warrior Damion Browne is a soldier of soldiers, an enforcer of the code of honor. With ruthless precision, he calculates risks as deliberately as he does his lover's satisfaction. Now it's up to him to defeat a new generation of female Super Soldiers, including the one woman perfectly programmed to be his downfall.

His enemy...or his soul mate?

Lara Martin has never felt powerful, until she's brainwashed to destroy the one man who can help her find the answers she so desperately seeks. Alone and embroiled in lies, Lara must turn to Damion for the key to the truth...

  2. I really enjoyed The Legend Of Michael and some of your other books. Reading your books always takes me on an adventure I wouldn't otherwise have. Thanks for that.

    Thank you.

  12. Because I haven't read any book from this series, but they sounds pretty interesting and I'd love to read one of them.

  13. Would love a chance to win "Renegade Passion". I loved Damion's story and would love a chance to win the novella to see where he was introduced. Thank you.


  14. I love Lisa's books. I loved Sterlings and Michaels stories. Now just waiting to read Damion's story. Love the covers and her books. Thanks for the great giveaway. The strawberries look delicious. You look and sound like you had fun in Vegas, too bad about the signing and not a lot of people showing up. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  15. 20 years ago we took a family trip to Las Vegas and I recall the food buffets being AUCE and VERY inexpensive! Is it still cheap?

  16. I haven't read any of your books but your series looks great!

  17. Hi Lisa. I have not read any of your books. But I've been reading a lot about the Zodius series. I love the book covers. How did you get the idea for this series? Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. Lisa is a new to me author that I would love read more from. I am jealous of your trip to Vegas. I love going. My husband and I hope to go again for our 20th anniversary. By then the kids should be out of the house.

  19. They sound like really great stories and I am always on the lookout for new authors.

  20. Julianne -I use to go to Vegas several times a year and my ex was Army and most of his family (dad and 3 uncles) were Special Forces. The combination sparked the idea.

    Books4me-- the buffets are expensive. $40 a person for dinner. The good ones that is. There are cheaper but you get what you pay for there. That is the one negative. They cost an arm and a leg.

  21. hi Lisa!!

    i wish i'll be able to visit US someday. i'd love to do a culinary vacation across US, trying genuine american cuisine.

  22. I haven't read anything by this author yet...this series sounds great! Very different then anything else I have heard of. The covers are also hot!

  23. Can't wait to dive into your Zodius Series... they sound fantastic! Sounds like you had a great time in Vegas... never been there myself, but would like to go one day. Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. This sounds like a good series. The hero sounds very strong.

  25. I have not read one of your books yet but now I definitely must do exactly that! Thank you for a great giveaway :) Have to run...going to Amazon to check them out now...Bye!

  26. I can not wait to start reading your stories Lisa. I am so excited to finally get to experience your writing!!

  27. I just love discovering a new author. That first read... sigh, I look forward to reading you!

  28. I want read this series. I have ebook #1 about Michael and want read other to. Still waiting this series and looking forward to reading you writing :)

  30. Congratulations on your release Lisa! And wow those treats yum I would love some :-D I have had my eyes on your series ever since I saw their gorgeous covers :-)

  31. Love your books. Never been to Vegas yet but i have a friend who lives there and is always saying i need to come. She's crazy busy though so it's not happening anytime soon.

  32. Hi Lisa,
    Congratulations on the release. i love the cover and the book sounds wonderful.
    i lived in Vegas for a few years before 9-11 working as a travel agent. all i can say is it is a great place to visit but a tough place to live if you aren't into gambling,or tourist traps. they have lots of shows and things but the town itself is very expensive to live in. So now i just visit friends and get the fun stuff our of it. :D Every year my brother goes for NASCAR and this year i'm going with him and then of course there is the PBR, wouldn't miss out on all those cowboy's wrapped in wranglers for the world.

  33. Sorry that I didn't get a chance to drive over to Vegas and see you. I, too, plan my trips around food...I drag my hubby to all kinds of places in search of crepes! Thank you for the giveaway.
