I'm happy to announce the winners of Tuesday's contest! Yes, I said winners:) Since there were only two people who knew my favorite baseball team (For the record, it's the Philadelphia Phillies. And I'll get to see them play this weekend!) I'm going to give them each a free copy of Angel 1089.

Congrats [profile] caitymack and [profile] stevie_carroll!!!

I had some bookmarks made up to celebrate Angel 1089 coming out on Tuesday, September 21, and Beyond Meridian coming out in print in the Men in Space Anthology (November).

I picked them up yesterday and they are absolutely gorgeous. I want to use one in the book I'm reading, but I don't want to mess it up!

You can request one and see samples at my web page

This kicks off "angel week"! Check back here for contests and more info as I celebrate release day on the 21st!

Only one week left before the release of Angel 1089! The folks at RT Book Reviews were so kind as to review it.

I'm so pleased! It got 3 stars which by their scale means "Enjoyable. A pleasant read." The reviewer also said: "Bridges has created a believable world of technologically advanced mega-corporations that dominate daily life shaping perceptions of morality and ethical behavior to their whims and ideology. The author’s characters are equally strong in this story, particularly Jeff Werth and the supporting character Trixie the dog."

She liked the dog!

More than that, I am really happy that the world was believable and that she liked the characters. Those are two things I've really worked on in my writing.

You can read an excerpt of Angel 1089 over at Samhain's site.

And stay tuned for some contests and a giveaway on release day:)

Hey guys! Angel 1089 is now on the coming soon page over at Samhain's website!

The blurb:


Catching two demon burglars is routine for Gabriel 1089, who’s one cog in an army of cybernetically modified humans protecting the sky city of Heaven. Until two turns into a twenty-demon ambush. When he wakes up, he’s missing his network-enabled halo—and one of his metal wings.

The down-level junk dealer tending Gabe’s wounds has hands that spark nerve endings he never knew he possessed. But for an angel cut off from Heaven, an attic in Old Trent feels more like a trap than a sanctuary.

Demons on his doorstep are nothing new for Jeff Werth. Ever since they saved his daughter’s legs, they’ve been calling in their marker. In exchange for his services—nursing Gabe back to health so they can use him as a pawn in their war with Heaven—they’ll consider the debt paid in full. Except having a powerless angel at his mercy feeds a rising desire that has him rethinking the deal.

Then the de-haloed Gabe begins having dreams that become visions…then memories. Until he’s not sure whose side he’s on. Heaven, or the simple family man who healed his broken wings…and made his heart whole.

Just wanted to give everyone an update. I just signed the contract with Samhain for the cyberpunk novel. It will be out this fall!

I'll let everyone know more as soon as the information becomes available. I'm really excited about this work. It's the longest piece I've written for publication and I'm in love with the universe I've created.

Beyond Meridian got it's first online review! I'm absolutely thrilled!

I especially like that the reviewer wants to see more with these characters and this world. I have already started poking at a sequel.

Only 2 more weeks to wait!

I'm really excited to share the cover art for my story "Beyond Meridian" which will be part of the Samhain "Men in Space" Anthology coming out January 26, 2010!

This cover is absolutely gorgeous )

And not only is my cover incredible, the artist made all three covers into this lovely poster. It's currently my desktop wallpaper :) I can't stop looking at it! And now I really can't wait to read the other stories in the anthology!
