Nominate my YA book & be entered into the $100 Giveaway!

Enter to win 2 $100 Amazon Gift Cards!

That’s right, you have TWO chances to win $100 gift cards. Read on for details…

I'm hoping to win a publishing contract for my YA end-of-the-world book SOLSTICE. I wrote the book under the pen name Jane Redd because it’s a different genre than my usual historicals, thrillers, and romances. I entered SOLSTICE into Kindle Scout, which is Amazon’s publishing contest: think “American Idol” for books. Readers vote for/nominate a book, and the books that receive the most nominations will be considered for publication with Amazon. 

Check out the gorgeous cover art by Claudia McKinney!

Four ways to get Banished from the last surviving city on earth are: 1. Cut out your emotion tracker, 2. Join a religious cult, 3. Create a rebellion against the Legislature, 4. Fall in love. 

Jezebel James does all four.

Jez is on the fast-track to becoming a brilliant scientist, with one goal—to save her city from total extinction. But the more Jez learns about the price of a fresh beginning, the more she realizes that carrying out the plan will lead to few survivors, and among the dead will be those she cares about the most.

Okay, so maybe this is a bit of a thriller too, and there’s romance! Maybe I'm not really swapping genres . . .

How To Enter: In order to help me gain nominations, I'm running a contest where anyone who votes for the book can enter a drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card.

Here's what you do:  Go to this link and nominate SOLSTICE. (You’ll need to sign in with your Amazon account info.) You can also read an excerpt of the first couple of chapters if you want, or you can just vote. Then, email me: heather (at) hbmoore (dot) com and I’ll enter you into the drawing for a chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card. 

And . . . for those of you who help pass the word along and get others to nominate the book as well, I'm offering a second $100 Amazon Gift Card giveaway.

How it works: Tell all your Facebook and Instagram/Twitter friend about it, and tell them to include your name in their email entry to me. Use in your post: Vote for Heather B. Moore’s new book SOLSTICE written under pen name Jane Redd on Kindle Scout, then enter the Two $100 Amazon Gift Card contests by emailing heather (at) hbmoore (dot) com and telling her that you voted and that I referred you. You’ll be entered into her 1st giveaway, and I’ll be entered into her 2nd giveaway. Win Win! You can then refer others to get yourself entered into the 2nd giveaway too.

For every person who nominates the book and lists you as their referrer, you’ll earn an entry into a 2nd sweepstakes for ANOTHER $100 Amazon gift card. The more people you tell, the more they list you as their reference, the more chances you will have to win!

Also, if Amazon selects SOLSTICE to publish, everyone who has nominated the book will get a FREE copy from Amazon!

Cover Reveal: LOST KING

I'm excited to show my newest cover for LOST KING. A companion novel to FINDING SHEBA with Omar Zagouri's next adventure! Coming Dec 1, 2015 from Thomas & Mercer. On preorder now!

Undercover agent Omar Zagouri has been ordered to Giza. A prominent Egyptologist was murdered, and a priceless artifact—the only complete version of the Book of the Dead—is missing. Omar is still reeling from the recent disappearance of his girlfriend, Mia Golding, but he puts his quest to find her on hold to track down the lost piece of history.

Omar’s mission is not just to locate the sacred book; he must also rescue the two archaeologists kidnapped and forced to translate its hieroglyphics under threat of death. Their kidnapper is determined to discover the text’s rumored explosive revelation: that Moses did not receive the Ten Commandments from God but instead copied them from the Egyptians. Though Omar’s need to find Mia grows more urgent, he must focus on finding the enemy who will stop at nothing to ignite a controversy that will change history, and the world, forever.

Special Announcement: New series coming 2016

I've been waiting since September 2014 to announce this new series. But we didn't want to announce it too soon . . . Rachael Anderson had this idea to use multiple authors to write a connecting series that all had a matchmaker in it. We met at Karey White's home and started brainstorming. We wanted the series to span various eras, from historical to contemporary, which would mean that the matchmaker would time-travel, as well as possess a power to match couples together. So this series would have some magic realism in it as well.

Since the matchmaker herself had to be born before any of the stories took place, naturally that meant her story would have a historical setting. Which then . . . it seemed that I was the one selected to write it since Rachael and Karey hadn't written historical stories before. Ironically, I had been reading a few novels over the summer all set in Shanghai. So I suggested Shanghai and it all came together from there.

Each of the 12 books in the series are stand-alone stories, some will be historical romances, other contemporary romances, but they will all feature the matchmaker. The Power of the Matchmaker novella is a prequel to any of the books and tells the matchmaker's story about how she became a matchmaker.

The novella is coming November 3, 2015 and you can now pre-order on Amazon and add it to your Goodreads list!

I just submitted the 2nd book in The Moses Chronicles series: DELIVERANCE. One day before the release of book 1: BONDAGE.

Coming tomorrow... BONDAGE:

Below is the submission letter I wrote to Covenant for DELIVERANCE, book 2:

I’m excited to submit DELIVERANCE, the second book in The Moses Chronicles series.  As we discussed earlier, the story of Moses in the Book of Exodus is not a single-volume endeavor. The exodus of the children of Israel encompasses more than two dozen chapters in the book of Exodus, and this epic story deserves epic treatment.

Book 2, Deliverance, is complete at 79,000 words.

Moses is on the run. Forced to flee his homeland of Egypt after having killed an Egyptian. And he’s reeling from the secret his Egyptian mother revealed right before his departure—that Moses was born to a Hebrew family. Overwhelmed and shocked to learn the truth of his birth, Moses wanders in the wilderness with no destination in sight. He is soon captured by the Hobab tribe and forced to work as a slave in order to pay his passage through their land. Moses earns their respect and even defends the tribesmen in a skirmish with an enemy tribe. 

As Moses continues his journey, he arrives at an oasis near the Midianite settlement, but the water is bitter. Exhausted, he falls asleep. When he awakens, he discovers that the oasis is overrun with a flock of sheep and several women who are caring for them. Moments later, a group of shepherds invade the oasis, scattering the flock and bullying the women.

Moses defends the women against the intruding shepherds and drives them off after a fierce battle. One of the women, Zipporah, treats his wounds and insists that he come with them to their father’s tent to recuperate. This begins the relationship between Moses and Zipporah, a woman who Moses never expected to find in his exile, a woman he can start a new life with and begin to answer his questions about faith and family.

I look forward to hearing from you.
My best,
Heather Moore
