Coupon Offer for Wickedly Misunderstood

I reached 775 likes on my Facebook author page, https://www.facebook.com/AuthorChasityNicole, so I decided to do something special and do a 25% off of my e-book, Wickedly Misunderstood. The coupon is valid for two weeks, until 3/11/14.

Here’s how you get it. Go to https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/407194 and click to purchase a copy of the e-book in whatever format you choose. Then when promoted enter the coupon code VA98Y.

You can get the e-book in Kindle, Nook, PDF, EPUP and other various e-book formats. 

You save 10$ from the paperback price of $15.99 and 2$ from the original e-book price of $7.99.

The e-book contains original artwork and a special section that gives you a chance to look into Ember’s world a bit further.

 

Valhaven Island is a strange island located in the middle of absolutely nowhere. The island is completely ran by robots, and the only inhabitants are eight young adults, and the two adults that brought them here (Jun and Mr. Snake). Both are very shady individuals, but they are not the only shady people on the island. 
There’s me, Ember, the fiery hot-head (literally), Elecktra the eccentric bubbly one (and her own light source), Harleigh the promiscuous one, Thirteen the energetic child (or monkey we have yet to figure that out), and that’s only the girls. Of the boy’s, Blade is seriously mysterious and no one likes him, Sage thinks he’s all that, Dante the with-drawn emo kid (but he’s really, really reliable, he saved my life), and Kai the super-genius, or super annoying smarty-pants depending on how you take what comes out of his mouth. 
To sum everything up, someone has two-near death experiences, a few fall in-love, one is the Devil’s son (yep that’s right we live on an uncharted island with the Spawn of Satan), someone is kidnapped by the Devil and dragged to Hell. And to make the situation all the more awesome, four new teens arrive and one is a purple-dragon girl. Seriously she’s freaking purple, and can turn into a dragon, how flipping awesome is that!

I’ve Accomplished so Much Today

Yesterday I got to work writing one of my short stories for a project on Facebook called the Pants Anthology. Well today I finished my story and I am entirely satisfied with all the twists and turns that came with that story. At first my story was going to be funny but turn dark, but it didn’t start out funny. My main character had other ideas on the funny part and it was sort of dark from the get-go. 

Then all these twists happened. I never intended for the pants to be what they were and for the girl to be something else, but some how it just happened that way. I just love it when I go in to write something one way and end up writing something entirely different. It’s a wondrous feeling to stare at what you write and wonder where such an idea even came from.

I even read some of it to my dad and bounced ideas off of him, and he told me I’m just like him with my odd imagination. That is so true, that I take after my dad on the strange imagination front, but I love it.

Asides from that I started working on book two of my series today. Well I formatted what I already wrote a few weeks back and I plan to continue working on it tonight. I better get to work on it if I plan to have it out by next year. If it takes longer than that I predict I’ll have some upset readers because the cliffhanger I left them on.

Published my First Book 2/11/14

On 2/11/14 I released my first book, Wickedly Misunderstood. I am so excited that I released it after two years of working so hard to write the book. There are pictures of the characters in the back of the book as well as a special release that I decided to put in there 😀

Daughters of Night by Ashley Torbeck Cover Reveal

Imagine the world you know being ripped away from you, and suddenly you realize all the fairy tales and scary stories just might be true…
The only thing Carmen really wanted was to live a normal life, but when the man of her dreams turns her into a monster and she learns of her witchcraft heritage, she said goodbye to normal and entered the world of the Daughters of Night.
Daughters of Night: Sanctuary
Life is hard. Death is harder. But for Carmen, the two go hand-in-hand.
Just when Carmen thinks her life is looking up, fate steps in and forces her into a life or death decision. Literally. Choosing to follow the guidance of her soulmate Gaviyn, Carmen breaks a centuries old curse and learns to live life as a vampire and a witch. With so many unanswered questions and hidden truths, though, Carmen keeps learning new facts about the past that only leave her with more questions. But the dangers are far from over as the pair is hunted by The Eradicators-whose goal is Carmen’s eternal demise. Gavin and Carmen seek out Sanctuary-a coven of misfit vampires and witches-in the battle for all their lives, and only the greatest sacrifice can save them all.
Daughters of Night: Possession
Taking refuge in the Colorado Mountains, Carmen and Gaviyn finally have it all. Friends, followers, and the family they had always dreamed of. But when a new vampire coven threatens to destroy Carmen’s family and release an evil with a thirst for blood upon the world by consuming Carmen’s mind, body, and soul, the vampires and witches of Sanctuary find themselves at war again. The key to Carmen’s salvation from the grips of a powerful demon, however, lies with a girl that none have ever met. With Carmen’s possession growing stronger by the minute, it’s a race against time to find the mystery girl and save Carmen before the demon consumes her – and still find Damien – before it’s too late.
Daughters of Night: Tribulation
After all that Carmen has been through, there is nothing she won’t do for her family. Nothing.
With Damien still missing and the new vampire coven still on the prowl for Carmen’s blood, Carmen goes looking for trouble, and finds more than she bargained for. Carmen’s sudden disappearance forces Gaviyn to make some changes at Sanctuary-one of which will change the course of their coven, and pave the way for the future of Sanctuary. Damien, after being tortured to the brink of death over and over again, finally finds an ally, but she’s hiding a secret that Damien might not be able to forgive. With more twists, turns, and loops than a roller coaster, Carmen and Gaviyn work with some surprising new friends to save Damien and defeat the wicked coven-and their tyrannical High Priestess-once and for all, while Damien tries to survive the torture and find his way back home. But as always, sacrifice is the name of the game, and this time, it may be a sacrifice nobody is willing to make.

About the Author

An avid reader and sarcasm specialist, Ashley’s quirky and bubbly personality stems from the vast amount of information she crammed into her head as a child. No genre was off limits, but she developed a fondness for Stephen King books early on. Of course, growing up in Eastern Kentucky, life moved a little slower, so books became her closest friends. 

Fast forward a few years, and the vast insanity that surrounded Ashley became her life. In January 2009, she married the only person on Earth as insane as herself, and they now reside in Louisville, Kentucky, patiently awaiting the zombie apocalypse while she taps away at the laptop with a plethora of stories to keep you entertained.

What’s Going on in my Life Right Now

I have neglected writing here lately because I’ve been so busy putting the finishing touches on my novel’s book cover. For some reason Createspace isn’t satisfied with the spine so I keep having to fix it. Hopefully tomorrow I can get my proof ordered and get it sent and receive it before my book is set to be released. This process is taking a tad longer than I would have hoped for it to.

That aside I started working on a story for another anthology project and it is coming together fairly well. I should have it finished within the next few days and sent off for editing. Then to work on another short story and get it edited as well, before picking up book two of my series and getting it written by next year. 

I even hope to get my Ghost Hunting Series, Crime Series, and Mafia story written up the rest of the way soon. But those have all been placed on back-burners because of getting my first novel finished. 

So many ideas that I want to write on and so little time to physically write them all out.
