About the Book

Title Destiny’s Favor (Orlosian Warriors 2)
Genre PNR, paranormal romance
Author Dariel Raye
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
His world shifted the moment she was born. Now, nothing can stop him from making her his.
Imagine meeting a man who looks like an angel, wings and all? What would you do if this man told you he existed with only one purpose – to claim you and only you?
Destiny Carter is a feisty, take charge, Rubinesque beauty with a tough façade, who finds herself in that age old quandary, “always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” A string of lackluster relationships leave her hopeless and ready to settle…Until she meets Japheth, the man her fiancé claims is his best friend! Japheth’s arrival is heralded by an attack on Destiny’s life, and instinctively, she knows this is just the beginning.
Born more than 200 years ago, Japheth looks like an angel but he’s far from it. In his world, the ratio of men to women is 500 to 1, and although he’s a superior being, he’s willing to break the most sacred law of his brothers, even drink human blood, to have one meant for him alone.
When he meets Destiny, he knows she’s the one he’s been searching for. To claim her, he will have to betray a friend, risk his life, and hardest of all, humble himself enough to win her love.
**Only $0.99 for a limited time**

Dai’s Dark Valentine
by Dariel Raye 
This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces
the story. Join the author’s Facebook party on Feb 21st for fun and giveaways.
What happens when a sheltered cat-shifter and a dark fey come
together?
Three-hundred years is a long time, but left to its own devices,
what began as the vendetta of one man can grow to encompass even more formidable
hatred.
Daitre Salons is a beautiful but naïve heiress whose true heritage
has been kept secret even from her. Now, her abilities are emerging and her father’s
enemies want her dead, but what bothers her most is that her new husband “in
name only” insists on treating her like a child.
Joban Beaucoup, professional guard to the Salons family, and
dark fey (alternate spelling from Vodouin origin), has chosen to leave the quaint
yet suffocating French town of his orphan-childhood and venture to the Americas,
but he needs one thing he cannot concoct, despite his magical abilities: a wife.
When Joban agrees to marry Daitre and take her to the Americas
with him, he carries her three-thousand miles away, then whisks her three-hundred
years into the future to assure her safety, but while Daitre struggles to adjust
to this strange new world, manage her newfound powers, and make peace with her feelings
for Joban, Joban learns that even here, their enemies have followed them, now more
deadly than ever.

Kaden’s Reprieve 
Dariel Raye and I have worked together on several projects,
so when she started a street team recently, I asked if I could tag along. She
soon outran me energy-wise, and I dropped back to admire from a distance. I
asked her to keep me posted on what was what. This is her report. — Kayelle
Allen
  1. Street
    teams are all the rage in the book market right now. Ideally, an awesome group
    of loving fans sacrifice their time and effort to help get the word out about
    our books. Realistically, though, it’s not quite that simple. After contemplating
    the pros and cons of street teams, I finally started one a couple of months
    ago. I’d been reading about them and asking questions from more experienced
    marketers, but since I started working with Raye’s Ravers, quite a few more
    things have been made clear to me. Here’s my take, along with a few suggestions.
  2. Ongoing
    point/reward system is too tedious, and even that doesn’t get everyone sharing/tweeting.
    Also becomes impersonal, IMO. The golden rule for street teams is to find unique
    ways to show appreciation. Never forget that these awesome individuals are
    helping you for FREE, so personal thank yous are definitely a requirement.
    I’ll talk more about this later in #6 and #11. Points/rewards for special campaigns/projects
    works better. You can use Google or some other spreadsheet to help keep up
    with points for each team member during the campaign. I started with a month
    long campaign, but I don’t recommend that – too LONG. Two weeks is probably
    a good maximum for special projects and campaigns.
  3. Don’t accept
    people onto the team who are on more than 5 street teams – there are exceptions
    to every rule, of course, but generally speaking, they simply don’t have time
    to keep up with all the boards, groups, and teams on a regular basis. Unless
    your team quickly becomes a favorite, they’re seldom around to respond to tags
    or any other messages you post.
  4. Create
    a private group for sharing and team files.
  5. I’m sure
    you know this, but very few writers have time to be on street teams. Like you,
    they need to be writing. Any time they have left needs to be spent marketing
    their OWN work. Cross promotion is always awesome, but it should never be just
    about you and your work when working with another author. Enough said.
  6. Team-ONLY
    parties can be nice incentives for special campaigns, and this is another reason
    for #7.
  7. Let people
    go nicely who never share. I call most of them “Friends of Raye’s Ravers”
    because they cared enough to give the team a try, and they still help by sharing
    occasionally. Occasional “house cleaning” is important though. Unless
    a team member lets you know why they’re not around (vacation, family problems,
    illness, etc.), set them free if they don’t respond to posts and never share.
  8. Chatting
    with team members as a group helps everyone get to know each other better –
    strengthens the team and it really is nice to get to know people who like your
    work.
  9. Another
    thing I’m planning is choosing a “Raver” of the week or something
    to help get more consistent sharing. It’ll be random.
  10. Playing
    random games and asking questions helps with team building too.
  11. Create
    special prizes only given to team members to increase interest and pride.
  12. All in
    all, if you’re planning to start a street team, expect to spend the first few
    weeks or so just getting your team up and rolling. In other words, don’t try
    to start a street team in the midst of a big writing project. Your goal is
    to keep the team moving and show appreciation without
    constant hands-on involvement from you. Let’s face it – if your team needs
    your constant attention, you still don’t have time to write! I don’t think
    there’s a hard and fast rule as to what works or doesn’t work, but the beauty
    of it is that the sky’s the limit in terms of fun things to try, and you get
    to meet some awesome people along the way.
Heck, you might even get a little more marketing done than you
can on your own.
