Sloan McBride


I am a multi-published romance author who tends to lean more toward paranormal. I have been writing all my life and enjoy telling a good story. I try different things on a regular basis, always anxious to see what’s next. I share what I learn on my journey with other authors.

Currently, I am working on Book 2 of ‘The Talisman Trilogy’ which means returning to the Highlands. For all of those who have been asking for Ramsey MacLaren’s story, the wait is over. You will reconnect with some familiar friends too. If you don’t know about the trilogy, pick up Highland Stone at any of the retailers.

Book 3 of the Time Walker Series is started and I am plotting Book 4. Exciting stuff going on in the Time Walker World. If you like demons, gods and goddesses, and romance, then check out The Fury, and The Treasure available now.
Another trilogy follows the lives of smokejumpers—Men of Fire. These heroes are sexy, daredevils, who will steal your heart and leave you breathless. This is romantic suspense with a touch of paranormal.

Audiobooks for The Treasure and Dangerous Heat recently released. Very exciting. The narrators are amazing.

I have at least five books crashing around in my head at any given time, making sleep difficult.

I live in Illinois with my husband of 38 years, my daughter, and son, both of whom will be moving out soon, leaving me alone with the characters in my head. My life will be changing again. Who knows what my dizzy brain will do next. Stay tuned!

What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Two things that I've noticed make the most impact for me. First is becoming featured author with different readers groups. The second is Google Ads.

It's a small, wooden corner desk in my bedroom right next to one of the windows. I have my computer, my printer, a small desk lamp, RT magazines, and all my notes for my latest book, "The Treasure" which I am currently editing.
