Latest News: June 2015
Happy summer, you all! Are the kids out of school? Are you off on vacation somewhere with a special someone or even as a happy singleton? I hope whatever you’re doing, you’ve got time for a book or two!
The last time a newsletter went out, you saw a cover reveal for TERROR ISLAND.
As I mentioned before, this book is a reprint that used to be under my Crystal Green name, and it was called BAITED. But since Chris Marie Green is the thriller writer these days, I rebranded the novel under this name (even though there are no paranormal elements in it.) But it’s still a rollercoaster white-knuckler with major romantic elements! Here’s what Harriet Klausner on Amazon had to say about the first edition:
Just a little TERROR ISLAND trivia… A while ago, I had the opportunity to go to Japan, and I really wanted to create a bombshell character for the new story I was plotting. I wanted her to be a pearl diver at a sea park in San Diego, so what better place to research that than a location that still has ama (pearl diver) exhibitions? That’s right—I went to Mikimoto’s Pearl Island and made good use of all that research! Back home, I also looked into shark-cage diving and survival techniques, because TERROR ISLAND covers those, too. But if you think this was all research…uh-uh. There’s also the small matter of the killer who’s running around—and the cat-and-mouse game the heroine plays with the hero, who may or may not be guilty…

Now, for you hot romance lovers out there, I want to announce that the prequel “Crystal Green” wrote for the sexy bad boy Rough and Tumble series is available for pre-order!
At the moment, pre-orders are available only on Kindle and iBooks, but on the official release date of July 20, WET AND WILD will also be on Nook and Kobo. You can read an excerpt now on the Crystal Green site, though. It’s meant to build up steam, so don’t say I didn’t warn you…
WET AND WILD trivia: I wanted to write a prequel (a full-length novel) to the Rough and Tumble series in the hopes that more people could discover it at a lower price than the longer-length core books are selling for (ROUGH AND TUMBLE, DOWN AND DIRTY, and HOT AND BOTHERED). Also, I was itching to introduce you to Reece Marlow, water polo bad boy, and Talia McCarter, a Rough & Tumble Saloon regular. I hope you meet them soon!
By the way, I’m still welcoming readers to my street team—The Green Team! What have they done lately? Well, they got first look at the WET AND WILD cover, a chance to receive the TERROR ISLAND advance reading copy to review, and are presently giving me feedback about a new idea that’s taking over my brain. You could do all that, too! If you’re interested in joining for either Chris Marie Green or Crystal Green, we’re all one happy group—just go here! I’d also love to see you on Twitter @ChrisMarieGreen and @CrystalGreenMe and my regular Chris Marie Green Facebook page as well as the one for Crystal Green.
Didn’t I say that there was a giveaway going on? There was so much book news that we’re just now getting to it!
