Dangerous Update

We seem to be lagging behind on distribution for the installments of Dangerous. As of tonight, Part 4: G and Part 5: E still aren’t available on KOBO, and Part 6: R is still snared in publication. I guess it’s a seasonal overload of titles.

So, I’m going to move the pub date for O out by a week, and hope we get caught up by then. 🙂

A Dangerous Update

Here it is the middle of August already, and time for an update on Dangerous.

Dangerous, an erotic romance by Ella Ardent

I had warned you that there would be a gap in releases this summer, because I’m doing things a bit differently with Dangerous: instead of publishing the story as I go (the way I did the Plume series) I’m writing the whole thing first. It will all be done and ready to go before the first installment is published. The story is taking longer to write than I’d expected (this seems to be typical) and it’s coming out longer than I’d anticipated (also typical) but I like the result a lot (I hope that remains typical!). There are some other changes to my process this time, too. I’ve hired an editor for this project (as well as my usual beta reader) so once the book is in the editor’s hands, I’ll update the page for Dangerous here on the site.

Dangerous is a dark erotic romance. It will be published in nine weekly installments, then the whole story will be available in trade paperback. The installments will be available for pre-order at Kobo, and we’ll see where else pre-orders can happen. Dates are still a bit squishy, but it looks as if we’ll launch in mid to late September. After Dangerous is on its way, I’ll work on the first three stories in The Phoenix series.

I hope you’ve all had a good summer so far! I should be doing that update around the end of this month. 🙂

Small Technical Issue

While I was sick, I uploaded all of my books directly to KOBO – that’s the kind of job that doesn’t take a lot of energy or concentration. They’re all there now, BUT the ratings and reviews have disappeared.

I’ve added the new tracking numbers to Goodreads, as this should help the Goodreads reviews to appear on the KOBO site. But KOBO tells me that there need to be reviews and ratings on the KOBO site to prompt the feed from Goodreads.

This is where you come in. 🙂 If you’ve bought one of my books from KOBO, could you please review it on their site and rate it? Also, if you did that before, it will be gone – the directly uploaded book appears as a new book, and the data from the older version is lost – so I’d appreciate if you could do it again.

All Ella titles on KOBO are in this listing right here.

Thank you! This is a bit painful, but it means that new books will be available more quickly to you KOBO shoppers, and also that I’ll have more control over the pricing etc., on the books.

I’ve just discovered that I can upload directly to Barnes and Noble as well (YAY!) so next week, you Nook users will have the same request from me.

Now, back to finishing SWITCH…
