Fire and Ice: The Book Box!

Hello Folks,

Welcome to this week’s edition of the Fire and Ice countdown.

Shit is starting to get real now, as not only have I heard rumors that the ebooks might be available a few weeks early, I know for a fact that early print run is starting to roll off the presses because I got my copies this week!

This is my 16th full length novel and let me tell you, the arrival of the never gets old!

My whole family gets excited about it, bless their hearts. My son found this box first and ran in shouting, “You got books!” And, after fixing my hair a little bit, my wife grabbed the camera to document the opening. I always feel a bit embarrassed, but then again why not make a fuss? I started working on this book a year ago!

The moment when I finally see the new baby my heart always gives a little skip. I mean a years worth of work on screens and in clouds and emails and PDFs, followed months out of my hands, and then it’s there, and more real than ever, and beautiful!

And I’m proud. And happy. And a little wistful. And a little in awe of it all. I feel so grateful to be able to do this work, and so appreciative of everyone who supports me along the way. This moment always feels like the completion of a journey for me. My work here is done. I am holding my reward. Now the only thing I can do, is pray that some one you enjoy it, too.

You can pre-order your copy of Fire and Ice today or if you’re going to Women’s Week this October in Provincetown, you can pick up your copy at Womencrafts, a week before it’s available in any other stores!

Fire and Ice: The Basics

Hey Friends,

First of all, the book sale is still going on, so you can check that out here, but I am down several more copies from last week, so don’t wait too long, or the ones you want might be gone!

But it you’ve already got all the Rachel Spangler backlist you can handle, please read on, because I’m already looking ahead to next month and my Women’s Week Release: Fire and Ice!

Last week I shared this awesome Ann McMan cover with you.

I am totally in love with it. And really, what’s not to love. I mean, I am totally a leg person, so, check!

And she’s on a bed, which sends all the right messages here, but lest we think this is some straight up erotica, look at that heart in the coffee cup, and together we all say, “Awwww,” ’cause we just know it’s going to be sweet. And possibly cozy, because look at those leg warmers and that oversized sweater.

But wait? What’s with the computer and the rules of curling? That’s not the type of light reading someone just snuggles up with on a lazy Saturday morning. By golly, is this woman working? What is her job, and how do we all get gigs like that?

It seems as though this cover has a lot of feels to it, and yet also so many questions. I think it’s time to start teasing a few answers for you. Not all the answers, mind you. I still have to hold your interest long enough to keep you coming back for more until Fire and Ice is released next month. Unless of course you want to go pre-order it right here.

So, in my attempt to string you along until it’s time for the big release, here’s the official blurb of Fire and Ice.

Will the heat building between a disgraced reporter and a rising curling star melt the already thin ice they each are on?

Max Lauren made a mistake that shattered her pride, her heart, and her career in one fell swoop. Relegated to covering the lowly game of curling, she already resents the so-called “sport,” and then she steps onto the ice, where things get infinitely worse. She’s been knocked down before, and she’s always gotten back up, but a frosty resolve goes only so far in a world of people who thrive on ice.

Callie Mulligan is the amiable skipper of America’s second-place curling team. Upbeat, optimistic, and with a fiery passion for an icy sport, she has both the mental and physical skills to become Team USA’s top contender. What she doesn’t have is the fame or the funding. Coverage from a journalist of Max’s caliber could be the answer to both problems if only Max wasn’t so cold to the idea. As Callie tries to warm her to the sport, a little bit of heat grows into a fire neither of them can contain.

Passion, competition, ambition, redemption, and raw need collide as the bright lights of success and celebrity grow hotter, but can the fire between Max and Callie be sustained when it’s put on ice?

Fire and Ice

Hey Friends,

First of all thank you to those of you who have ordered books from my book sale. We’ve put a little dent in my stock, but I’ve still got plenty left, so if you haven’t had a chance to place your orders yet, it’s not too late.

And for those of you who did look at my sales deals, you got a little hint of things to come because you saw that one of the incentives for buying a copy of everything I’ve written was the chance to get a sneak peek at my next release; Fire and Ice.

It’s hard to believe that autumn is nearly upon us here in the Northern Hemisphere, but it is, and with the change of the global seasons comes a shift in the sports seasons as well, which leads me right into the wide world of curling.

Yes, I said curling. No, I am not curling my hair. I mean the sport of curling. If you are someone who is excited by that news, boy, have I got the book for you! And if you are someone who wrinkled up your nose and thought “Curling isn’t a sport!” boy, have I got the book for you!

Fire and Ice, which will be launching officially at Women’s Week in Provincetown, follows a professional curler who is passionate about the sport, and a sports reporter who thinks that curling is a silly game and quite beneath her. And of course, since I wrote it, the two of them are about to embark on an epic romance!

In the weeks leading up to our big release celebration, I’ll be sharing some insights into the book, the main characters, and my own connections to the world of curling, but for today I am going to leave you with two things:

And this fantastic cover from the fabulously talented Ann McMan.

Book Sale!

Hey folks,

First a little bit of housekeeping…not the boring kind, the fun kind! I have been remiss in sharing reviews of Spanish Surrender, but I hope you know how much I appreciate every single one of you who has taken the time to write one on Amazon, Goodreads, or other outlets. This week I got my first big write up from one of the LesFic community’s biggest review site, The Lesbian Review. Thanks goes to them, especially Anna Gram, who made my heart swell with comments like this:

“This book is hot in every way you can imagine. From the passionate arguments to the passionate love making. You’ll be entranced as you follow Simone and Loreto on their journey to discover the truth about Spain and the truth about each other. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll learn as they do that sometimes you have to surrender to truly embrace life and love as it was meant to be enjoyed.”

You can read the full review right here, but let me tell you, it’s just about everything a writer could want to hear.

And that puts me in a great mood, and when I’m in a great mood, it makes me want to share more books with y’all, which brings me to the main point of this blog: I’m having a book sale!

I’ve got at least a few copies of every single one of my books on hand, and I’m selling them off at below the cover price, with a few extra bonuses along the way.

Each book is $15. Here’s a list of what I have available:

Learning Curve (2 Copies)
Trails Merge (4 Copies)
The Long Way Home (A Darlington Romance) (4 Copies)
LoveLife (2 Copies)
Spanish Heart (2 Copies)
Does She Love You? (2 Copies)

Heart of the Game (4 Copies)
Perfect Pairing (4 Copies)
Close To Home (A Darlington Romance) (2 Copies)

Now for the extras:
I will autograph each book, either with a personalized inscription to you or with my name and the date, depending on your preference. I will autograph each book you buy.

Shipping is $3 a book in the continental US, but if you buy more than one, I will combine shipping. The more books you buy, the cheaper the shipping gets per book. I make no money on shipping and I am willing to get price quotes for you ahead of billing. Same goes for international shipping: I can check the price, and you pay only what I pay in shipping and packaging.

And in keeping with the theme of buying more saves you more…

If you buy 5 books, I’ll throw in a 6th one for free.

If you buy 9 books, I’ll throw 2 in for free.

If you buy 13 books, I’ll throw in the two free print books, plus a free eBook copy of my upcoming release, Fire and Ice, before its wide release! (Obviously there are only 2 copies of a couple of these, so only two people have a shot at the 13-book offer. If you want it, move quickly! First come, first served.)

Email all orders to Rachel_Spangler@yahoo.com. Put something like “Book Sale” in the title, because if you don’t, I might think it’s spam and delete it. Also in the email, be sure to tell me your PayPal address, your shipping address, and how you want me to autograph your books.
