Tuesday Teaser: Fabricated Beauty (CK#1)

This is one of my favorite quotes from Christian’s Promise, which is out on Amazon right now, by the way. It’s a novella (the prequel to the CK series), so I made it part of Unlimited. Chrisitan’s Mate, the first “novel” in the series releases next month 😉


Poll: Contest Prizes

I want to do a giveaway contest, but I’m divided on what I want to give away. So, since sticking up a reader poll seemed to work well the last few times I did them, I’m doing another one.

Thanks in advance for your participation. 😀


 


CK #2 Update

I’ll be doing a cover reveal next week for Christian’s Mate, book #2 in the series. It’s a full novel, unlike book #1, which is more like a novella. It was originally supposed to be labeled “prequel”, but I find it’s easier to label it #1 so readers know the order of the books. Book #2 was originally supposed to be book #1, if that makes sense. I’ll have the blurb and specs on the book posted next week, as well. I’m hoping to release it by the end of the month or in July. There’s no definite release date yet. When I set one, I’ll let you know. 🙂

And if you have any questions, just shoot me a message and I’ll try to answer them.


WIP Wednesday-5/10/2017

I’m not writing today, but I’m working on a few other projects. I’m finishing a mockup for a new cover (and hopefully getting it sent off to the publisher to get approved today too), and doing CK2 edits. I made some authors scream (literally) yesterday when they saw their cover art, AND I got books in the mail. So that’s my happy thoughts for the day.

What are you up today?


Prequel or Book #1?

I have a question for readers and other authors, so please feel free to weigh in on this issue.

Okay…so, I’m getting  things finalized with the new Christian’s Kisses Series, so I can work on getting the prequel and the first book polished and ready for release, so the others will fall (smoothly) in line afterward.

But, I’m debating something. I know readers like to know the order books in a series play out, and they should all be numbered. But…what about the prequel? It’s a novella, so it’s not a “novel” like the others in the series are. But it comes first. Of course, you can read book one without it, but it’s nicer to read the prequel first (and to KNOW it exists). And since the prequel is releasing first, book 1 will mostly likely read as the second book (to most readers).

So…do I just number the prequel “book 1” and throw out the word “prequel” altogether? I never really liked the word “prequel”, anyway. It’s weird to say, too lol.

The reason I bring this up is because I’ve run into this issue with Nightwalkers.  What happens is, new readers want to read the series, but the prequel screws up the ordering system on the listings, etc, etc, etc, problem, problem, problem, you get my drift.

And…a side note in case this is asked, no, I don’t want to lengthen it to become a full novel, so that’s not an option. It’s staying a novella (It’s about 24k, I think).

Thoughts?

 

 


Blood Kisses Revamped is out!

Bloodkissescover20152Blood Kisses Revamped is finally available for purchase! Yay! Even if you’ve read the original version, you’ll want to pick this one up, too. The book got a HUGE overhaul, and it has tons of bonus material.

It’s written more in the style of the other two now, so it matches them better. There’s a few new scenes in it, as well. TONS of new bonus material.

Right now, it’s only available on Smashwords, but it should be up on Amazon soon as well (I’m guessing tonight or tomorrow). It was previously contracted to another publisher, so it always takes a bit to get it up on Amazon.

So go check it out!

Here is the link for the book on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/650798
