What is it about committing to a deadline that makes everything go crazy? I’ve been living with Murphy’s Law this year, and can’t quite believe how bad it’s been. I’m done with deadlines and promises – maybe then, things will calm down around here.
So, yes, I’m late again and I’m sorry.
And no, I’m not going to make a promise about the publication date of Celebration. Let’s keep those gremlins away this time!
I’ll let you know when it’s published.
If you know any way to make Murphy’s Law stop, I’m listening!
Two bits of good news for you today. Not only have I crawled back to the land of the living, but Joanna told me what was wrong with SWITCH. She’s brilliant, but her idea means rewriting or revising everything about her and Mike in the novella.
I’m hoping for publication this Thursday. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, I’ve uploaded everything directly to KOBO. It was so easy that I could even do it when I was sick.
Here’s hoping none of you have caught this virus.
Just got this from the designer and I think it’s wonderful! I had to share. Have a peek:
Now, you don’t just want to see the cover – you want to read the story! So, here’s where I’m at this month: my plan is to finish both FOREVER BOUND and FLASHBACK and publish them both by the end of October. I’m finishing FOREVER BOUND first – Rex doesn’t get to jump line twice – but you can probably plan on seeing both in that last week of October. (I’ll be away at a writers’ retreat and probably won’t be able to get online for a week or so. On the upside, though, I’ll get lots of writing done.)
So, by the end of October, I’ll be finally caught up!
Now tell me – what do you think of the new cover?
I had enrolled SUBMISSION in KDP Select, a program at Amazon that requires the book to be available exclusively there for 90 days. Well, those 90 days are over, so SUBMISSION is back out in the rest of the world – or is making its way there through various distribution networks.
This also means that the first Plume anthology has been distributed to other outlets. It had to be exclusively at Amazon up until now, because SUBMISSION was included in it.
The First Anthology of the Plume includes the first three novellas in the Plume series: SUBMISSION, SURRENDER and SEDUCTION.
In other news, I had a long talk with my husband about all this distribution stuff, because it confuses me a bit. He suggested that I just distribute the books through the portals I already have signed up, not worry about it so much, and concentrate on writing more books. I really like the sound of that advice, so I’m taking it.
I’m slow to finish EXHIBITION, btw, but there are two reasons for that. One is that I really like the story so I’m lingering over it to ensure that I get it right, and the second reason is that I have a surprise for you – a new trilogy of erotic romances. EXHIBITION will be published this month and I’m hoping to get the entire new trilogy published in June. More on The Wedding trilogy once EXHIBITION is published. Stay tuned!
