Cover for FLASHBACK

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?

 

An Update

I’m writing away, honest and true! And here’s what you can expect in the next couple of weeks.

ALWAYS A BRIDESMAID is just a tweak away. Fiona gave me some trouble, but we’re all sorted out now. (As soon as Kade got determined, everything was fine.) I expect to publish AAB – which is the second story in The Wedding trilogy – by Monday.

After that will be FOREVER BOUND, #3 in The Wedding trilogy. This one is perking along – lots of good BDSM fun for the happy couple – so it will be published soon. Two weeks, worst case. I’m aiming for it to be a week after AAB but Stuff Happens.

Then, it’s time for EXPOSURE, story #6 in The Plume series. My cover artist is on vacation, so we still need to do the cover. (And I think she’s worth waiting for! The Plume covers are awesome, IMO.) The story is pretty much ready to go, so (fingers crossed) you’ll have another Plume fix by the end of the month.

In September, there will be new anthologies, in simultaneous print and digital, for The Wedding and The Plume: Second Anthology.

Plume #7 will be an October release.

Now you know!

Hot Summer Nights BlogHop

Skye Warren has arranged an erotica and erotic romance bloghop, to start the summer off right, and I’ve joined the conga line. There are over 100 participating erotica authors and bloggers, AND there are prizes, too!

First, let’s talk about summer. Summer has strong associations for me, so I’ll try to work them all into this post.

First off, summer is a time of new experiences and a chance to try new things. I remember that sense of freedom at the end of the last day of school and the sense that anything could happen in the months ahead. Summer is exciting. Summer is a time to experiment and sample new experiences.

Like, maybe, joining a private BDSM club…

I write linked series with continuing characters. My series, The Plume, is set at a private BDSM club called (surprise) The Plume. Have you ever fantasized about joining such a club? In the first erotic novella of the series, SUBMISSION, Joanna the reporter goes undercover to get the real story of the Plume. The truth is that she has some secret fantasies of her own, which is why she volunteered for the assignment. It’s fall when Joanna first enters the Plume, but you can follow her inside the notorious club and share her experience this summer. You might find it pretty hot inside the Plume! (Or you might find the co-owner, Rex, to be pretty hot.)

These novellas are erotica – although individual characters will find their happily-ever-afters over the course of the series, each novella might not end with one. Each novella does, however, have plenty of sex, and at least one interval of wild abandon within the Plume.

Currently, the first four novellas set at the Plume are available: SUBMISSION, SURRENDER, SEDUCTION and DECEPTION. The first three novellas are also available in an anthology, either digitally or in print.

The next installment in the Plume series is EXHIBITION, which will be published very soon.

Summer is also about free samples, and by perfect coincidence, SUBMISSION is currently free. Read more about the Plume series and get the links, right here.

 

 

Summer is a time for weddings, as well. My upcoming series of erotic romances takes place at a wedding and is called The Wedding. The bride’s fantasy is to have a perfect¬† wedding at a romantic Caribbean resort, so her friends and family make the trip to see her exchange vows with her one true love. Of course, weddings are emotional events and ones that seem to invite disaster – this wedding doesn’t shape up to be quite as perfect as planned. There are guests determined to make the most of the romantic setting, guests indulging themselves with vacation sex, plus a “happy couple” with major doubts. Rules get broken, people take chances and everything comes right in the end. The Wedding is coming soon – eye candy is right here.

Summer is about prizes. You can win a signed print copy of THE PLUME: THE FIRST ANTHOLOGY by adding a comment to this blog post. Let’s talk about experimentation – in your comment to enter the contest, tell me what you’d like to try out for the first time this summer.

You have until June 24 to enter.

Finally, summer is often about roadtrips. You can do that vicariously by continuing along the bloghop road to visit other participating authors and bloggers. There are lots of authors participating, a prize at every blog AND an overall gift basket of digital books to keep you busy reading for a while. Here’s the number one stop on the list and here’s the linky list of participants.

Have fun!

The Plume – The First Anthology

Here’s the cover for the First Anthology of the Plume.

This volume includes the first three novellas of the Plume – SUBMISSION, SURRENDER and SEDUCTION. It’ll be available in both a digital and a print (POD) edition. This is the front cover only – the back has thumbnails of the three covers of the included novellas and their summaries.

Since SUBMISSION is part of that promo at Amazon, the anthology will be available digitally at Amazon first. The print edition is not affected by the promotion, according to Amazon, so the print edition will be available as soon as I sign off on the proof. Soon!

Available at Amazon.

Trade Paperback from Createspace.

Isn’t it pretty?

Interesting…

Both SUBMISSION and SURRENDER have been distributed through Smashwords to B&N, Sony, KOBO, Diesel, Apple and Scrollmotion. It takes time for them to show up in all those places, apparently. Neither book has been shipped yet to KOBO or Sony, for example. They did ship to B&N on October 28,  so this morning, I had a peek at B&N to see how we were doing.

Both novellas are listed there for sale, but neither has a cover image (it’s listed as unavailable) and neither has a description. Here they are:

SUBMISSION on B&N

SURRENDER on B&N

Are my stories and covers too naughty for B&N? Or does this page just take time to populate?

Why would anyone buy a book without being able to see the cover or a blerb about the story?
