Blood Vine release week wrap up: News & #Giveaways

jumpingWhat a whirlwind week, after waiting so long for my book to be publised!  I’ve been jumping up and down to see Blood Vine up for sale, and to hear from so many readers at once!  Seriously, hearing from readers is THE COOLEST THING about writing!

Okay–back to being dignified: Let’s just say that it has been incredibly fun and satisfying. Sincere thanks to everyone who has purchased a copy, written a review, or commented on a blog the tour!


This week, I was featured on the SF Bay Guardian’s local, sex-positive Blog.  The hilarious headline was Local Clergy Summons Sexy Undead.

I was also featured on’s Mom Must Read Blog, and what its author Kristin Kemp said about me and Blood Vine was very sweet.

Likes and Tags

Did you know that Amazon likes, tags, and reviews help sell books?  The reviews don’t have to be five-star.  But in Amazon’s secret calculations for how they list and suggest books, the sheer quantity of these that a book has determines whether Amazon recommends it to shoppers.  So if you haven’t yet, I’d really appreciate it if you had to the time to like and tag the book on Amazon.  And, if you are so inclined, writing an honest review also helps, because it helps people find a book they will truly enjoy.  The more reviews the better, even if they are not all five-star. Blood Vine on Amazon.

About amber.belldene

Amber Belldene grew up on the Florida panhandle, swimming with alligators, climbing oak trees and diving for scallops…when she could pull herself away from a book. As a child, she hid her Nancy Drew novels inside the church bulletin and read mysteries during sermons—an irony that is not lost on her when she preaches these days. Amber is an Episcopal Priest and student of religion. She believes stories are the best way to explore human truths. Some people think it is strange for a minister to write romance, but it is perfectly natural to her, because the human desire for love is at the heart of every romance novel and God made people with that desire. She lives with her husband and two children in San Francisco
