Blood And Guitars Merchandise Is Here!

You've read the book, now buy the t-shirt!

In celebration of the release of Immortals And Melodies (2 days from now), I'm happy to announce the new Blood And Guitars shop where you can get t-shirts, keychains, Kindle sleeves and more! Right now, most of the items available are Immortals And Melodies based, but I'll be adding more Blood And Guitars items as well as book 2 stuff as I go.

Also, I've added a new widget for the store on the left sidebar of the site. You can use the arrows at the bottom to scroll through the items available.

Most items will ship from Cafe Press within 24 hours. That's hard to beat. The prices are very reasonable, too.

Don't forget to comment and let me know what you think of the selection. Also, you can help me out by spreading the word with a tweet or facebook post!


Writing About Vampires - An LDS Author's Perspective

Blood And Guitars, free vampire book giveaway

Today I have a guest post at Krazy Book Lady.

It's the first time I've blogged about being an LDS Author. I really enjoyed writing this blog post for a lot of reasons, but mostly because I get to talk about the kind of author I am and what drives me to write the type of books I do. I hope you'll stop by and check out the post.

Also, while you're there, don't forget to enter the giveaway for a free e-book copy of BLood And Guitars. With the release of Immortals And Melodies (Blood And Guitars #2) right around the corner, you'll need a copy of book 1 if you don't already have it.

Please help me spread the word by tweeting this post or sharing it on facebook.

A big shout out goes to Tami at Krazy Book Lady for including me in the LDS Author's Giveaway Hop.

Blood And Guitars Goes On Tour

A book tour, that is.

I'm very excited to announce that I've teamed up with Bewitching Book Tours for a week long tour for Blood And Guitars. With the release of Immortals And Melodies right around the corner, (22 days to be exact) it just seemed like the natural thing to do.

The tour will begin on June 4th and run for a week. I'll be making stops at several blogs along the way. Also, we'll be doing a one-day book blitz for Immortals and Melodies on June 12, just two weeks after it's Kindle release. I'm very excited to take part in the tour, and to be working with Bewitching Book Tours. I'll be asking for help to spread the word when the time comes.

For now, you can check out the Bewitching Book Tours blog here.

I'll post an update with more details about the tour as soon as I have them.

Immortals And Melodies Cover is Here!

It's beautiful, isn't it?

Ladies and gentlemen, Ronnell D. Porter has done it again. He blew my mind with the cover for Blood And Guitars, and I really didn't expect to love another cover as much as I love that one. You can imagine my pleasant surprise. The official cover reveal happened over at Vampchix. Thanks again to Michele for doing the reveal! I've had a tremendous response from readers and other authors about how amazing the new cover really is. I want to point out my favorite part of it but I love everything about it equally. The guy is a great representation of Trey and he wears the guitar with ease and confidence like I imagine Trey would. The blood cells floating around are just spectacular. I couldn't have dreamed up a better idea for the cover than this.

I added a countdown to the site today to make it easier to keep track of Immortals And Melodies coming to Kindle, and I had this strange moment tonight when it really hit me how close that day is! Part of me wants it to hurry and come and the more reasonable (albeit quieter) part of me is grateful for the span of time because I still have a lot to do before that day comes. For now, I'll just enjoy the cover and keep working. I'd love to hear see your comments on the cover below!

Immortals And Melodies Cover Reveal Update

It's almost here, I promise!

Michele over at Vampchix has most generously agreed to reveal the cover of Immortals And Melodies on Saturday! I'm so excited to show you all the book's cover. I couldn't be happier with Ronnell and his amazing work. I've had the best reaction to the cover for Blood And Guitars, and this one will not disappoint. He really captured exactly what kind of image I needed the cover to portray. And Team Trey fans will be very pleased to know that he graces the cover of book 2!

If you want to head on over to Vampchix. you can bookmark the site now so you'll know where to go come Saturday. Also, I'll be sending out reminders and a few teaser lines from Immortals And Melodies for the next few days on Twitter. If you don't already, be sure to follow my tweets here.

I can't wait for Saturday's big reveal to come. I hope you'll all join me at Vampchix to celebrate being one step closer to the release of Immortals And Melodies!

Third and Final Book Trailer for Blood And Guitars!

That's right. Three is the magic number.

In this third and final trailer you get a closer look at Aurora. It just so happens to be my favorite of the bunch. You can always find it THE BOOK section of this site at the above menu until BOOK TRAILERS, but I thought I'd put it here, too.

The next book trailer you'll see from me will be about Immortals And Melodies. I hope to have it here in the next few weeks. Don't forget to subscribe to my youtube channel. My username is Ehzjensen1. That way you'll always know when there's a new trailer. Also, head on over to youtube and "Like" the trailer if you do.

You can find it on youtube HERE.

Thank you all for sharing in this journey with me. I hope you'll come along with Trey, Aurora and I for Immortals And Melodies which is being released in May. That's only one month away! Eek! I can hardly contain my excitement!

Immortals And Melodies Has a Cover!

I've had a giant perma-grin ever since I got the cover yesterday

It's just that amazing!

I'd post it now but I'm doing a special cover reveal on another site. I'll be posting details about that very soon.

Ronnell D. Porter did an amazing job with this one, just as he did for Blood And Guitars. The book covers are each unique but go together so well. They really fine works of art that even Aurora would be proud to display.

I'll be back with news about the cover reveal soon. Until then!

"...A Promising Series of Books."

Another great review for Blood And Guitars

This one comes from Laura at Readers Favorite with 4 Stars

Here is just a little of what Laura had to say about the book:

"I believe this book has broad appeal and will be enjoyed by both teens and adults alike and also by fans of different book genres."

"The romance between the two main characters is sweet, clean and engaging. I would recommend this book to fans of fantasy, romance and music based books of all ages."

"I look forward to seeing what happens next for Trey and Aurora in the second of what seems to be a promising series of books."

A big shout out to Laura for reviewing the book, and to all the lovely people at Readers Favorite!

Guitar of the Week ... kind of.

Okay, so maybe it's not really a guitar but it's made by Marshall so that counts for something, right?

It looks amazing, doesn't it?

And that's even before I tell you that this little amp isn't exactly what it seems to be. It's actually a refrigerator. Is that cool or what? All pun intended. It looks like something from the Jim Marshall Signature Series, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

It has an authentic Marshall Amp head and cabinet facing but actually opens up to reveal more than 4 cubic feet of cold storage space. I don't know about you, but if I ever get that home studio I've been talking about for ten years, I'll want one of these next to my mixing board. You'd be the coolest kid on campus if you were sporting this Marshall accessory in the dorms.

Marshall claims you'll be able to get your hands on one starting in October for an introductory price of $299 USD. Click the source link to sign up for email updates. Until then, click the Marshall Just Got Cooler link for a little promo video Marshall did for it. Enjoy!
