The Kure Book Promo + Giveaway

by Jaye Frances

Thank you, WildAboutBones, for hosting a giveaway of The Kure, a paranormal romance novel and the first book in “The Kure” series. The giveaway is available internationally, and a kindle ebook version will be gifted to the winner. I also appreciate the opportunity to let your readers know about the “Resolve to Read” promo I’m offering on Amazon for the month of January.

Brief synopsis of The KURE:

Forbidden by law and denounced as an abomination by the church, the Kure has been hidden for centuries…

John Tyler has never met Sarah Sheridan. But he knows he must find her, and somehow convince her that she is the key to unlocking the power of an ancient ritual that will rid his body of a rare and ravaging disease.

But as cure quickly becomes curse, John realizes the ritual is more than a faded promise scrawled on a page of crumbling paper, and he discovers, too late, that the unholy text has unleashed a dark power that is driving him to consider the unthinkable.

Ultimately, John must choose between his desperate need to arrest the plague that is destroying his body, and the virtue of the woman he loves, knowing the wrong decision could cost him his life.

A Short Excerpt:

Sarah took a deep breath, then another, trying to prevent herself from vomiting. Sensing a trickle of moisture on her chin, she wiped at the warm fluid. Even in the dim light, she could see the smear of blood on the back of her hand. At first, she guessed it was from an absent brush with John’s groin. But as she dabbed at her chin, the renewed color made her realize she had been biting her lower lip, setting it to throb with her own pulse.

She felt herself trying to back away, her muscles straining against invisible bonds that were every bit as strong as the straps that would bind John to the treatment table. Yet she knew if the spells in the old book could really cure John, the release of their power would only come with complete agreement between her mind and body, without hesitation, without protest. She reminded herself that she was not a victim, nor was her predicament the result of naïve ignorance. She had chosen to do this, her conscience having become a quiet and consenting accomplice. She was paying the price willingly, forcing herself to attempt the insanely perverse act because it was part of the price—to ensure the commitment of the donor was sincere, she reasoned.

For a limited time, read The Kure for only $0.99 (kindle version)

A note about Resolve To Read from Jaye Frances
I always spend the last few days of December reviewing my writing plan for the coming year—to determine what’s going to receive priority and how I will budget my time to make sure I get it done. During one of those planning sessions, I noticed my husband was also putting a few goals together for the new year. When I asked him to tell me about his “resolutions”, he said that one of them was to read more, especially books that fall outside his favorite genres, “just to see what else is out there.” We began to talk about how many more people are now reading books of all kinds, primarily due to increased availability and choice of low-cost eBooks for the Kindle and Nook. I’m constantly reading comments from readers who decided to try a particular author’s work because it was ninety-nine cents, or in some cases, free. Then my husband asked an interesting question: “Why don’t you offer some kind of promotion to encourage more people to read The Kure, with the idea that they’ll be more inclined to read the book if you temporarily lower the price?” I really had to think about this one, but after realizing it might motivate a few more folks who are not familiar with The Kure to take a look, I decided to do it. I’m calling it “Resolve To Read”, and it’s going on right now. Effective for the month of January, the kindle version of The Kure can be purchased for $0.99 on Amazon. So if you were planning on buying a kindle version anyway, why not take advantage of the “Resolve To Read” promotion and save two bucks?
