The Best Man is Free

The Best Man (book #1 of The Wedding) is free at most portals until the end of April. It’s 99-cents at Amazon because they haven’t matched the free price, but you can get a MOBI version at Smashwords.

The Best Man, first in The Wedding series of contemporary romances by Ella ArdentHe made her secret fantasies come true…

Christine has always been in love with her best friend’s older brother, Jake. The fact that she’s maid of honor and he’s best man at Jess’s Caribbean wedding means that they’ll be thrown together repeatedly for the week of the festivities. Christine takes a chance and tells Jake about her secret and naughty fantasy, hoping he’ll take the challenge of fulfilling her dreams. Jake has always wanted Christine to be more than his ‘other baby sister’ but doesn’t want to lose her friendship. He can’t believe his luck when she admits her sexy dream—and nothing will stand in the way of him making it come true.

The March Update

What’s new this month?

Submission, book one of the Plume Series by Ella ArdentWell, first off, I caved. LOL! I now have a Facebook page, and you can like it right here.

Secondly, I’ve been republishing ebooks.

The Plume Series is available at all retailers again.

I also created a new edition of Submission and distributed it everywhere. It’s a free read at Apple, Nook and Smashwords, so you can try out the Plume Series if you haven’t already. (Amazon may match the free price. It’s 99 cents there.) It’s the only one of the nine original novellas that’s available on its own, so you can continue the series with one of the Plume Collections.

The Best Man, first in The Wedding series of contemporary romances by Ella ArdentThe Wedding Series is available at all retailers again. The Best Man is 99-cents at all retailers as a series starter – it’s free at Apple, Nook and Smashwords. Again, Amazon may match the free price. It’s 99 cents there.

The two books in the Tales from Euphoria series are available at all retailers again.

Third, I’ve been working on print editions. The three Plume Collections (not the complete series) are published directly to Amazon, as is The Wedding Collection and Dangerous. This gives the paperbacks a slightly better price there.

I’ve also republished all of the trade paperbacks through Ingrams. The cool thing  is that Ingrams’ editions are available everywhere—they’ll supply Her Dark Prince and His Lost Princess to Amazon, as well as to other Amazon companies like The Book Depository. Your local bookstore can even order my books for you. And libraries can order them, too.

Fourth – yikes, what a busy month this has been! – there’s a new ebook portal open called Eden Books. It looks as if they’ll be specializing in steamy romance, but it’s early days yet. I’ve uploaded The Plume and The Wedding there. You can find my books on their site, right here.

And now, it’s time to get back to writing! I hope you’ve had a productive month, too.

GooglePlay and The Wedding

The Best Man, first in The Wedding series of contemporary romances by Ella ArdentMy books are now available at GooglePlay again. You can check the links on individual book pages here, or check out this page on GP which shows all my books that are live there.

(Her Dark Prince isn’t there yet, just FYI. I’ll upload it and His Lost Princess everywhere after HLP comes out of Kindle Unlimited later this week.)

And The Wedding Series is live everywhere again. I was able to use the original distribution path for this series, which means it’s live at Apple with all the reviews. Yay!

The Best Man should be a 99cent read – I see that for me, though, Apple has rounded up to $1.99 CA and GP has converted 99 cents US to $1.30 CA. :-/ There’s not much I can do about prices delivered from an aggregator, unfortunately. It’s a 99cent read at the other portals.

Submission, book one of the Plume Series by Ella ArdentFinally, I decided to republish Submission so I could make it a free read for new readers to discover The Plume Series. It has a new cover and the links are percolating. It’s the only one of the nine original novellas that’s available on its own – because it makes more sense to buy the collections once you start reading the series.

Next up, I need to create portal-specific book interiors for Kobo and GooglePlay, and republish Euphoria by the end of the week. I realized that the newsletter link in Dangerous (and the three episodes) is the old defunct link, so I’ll need to reformat and re-upload those books, too. I’m making progress, though!

New Covers for The Phoenix

The amazing thing about publishing is that everything takes so much longer than I ever expect. (And that goes double over a few years ago.)

Finally, though, I have new covers for The Phoenix books to show you. Yay!

Revealed, book one of The Phoenix series of contemporary romances by Ella Ardent Harnessed, book two of The Phoenix series of contemporary romances by Ella Ardent Haunted, book three of The Phoenix series of contemporary romances by Ella Ardent Hunted, book four of The Phoenix series of contemporary romances by Ella Ardent Sold, book five of The Phoenix series of contemporary romances by Ella Ardent Claimed, book six of The Phoenix series of contemporary romances by Ella Ardent

What do you think? I’m really pleased with them.

Having the covers meant the books could be reformatted and reloaded to the various portals. There are new buy links at Kobo and Smashwords already, and the others are populating. Check the individual book pages for links.

There’s another job off my list. I’ve decided to write a monthly update here on the blog of what’s going on. The first one will be on February 15, so please stop by for that. I’ll do them on the 15th of each month after that.
