Sold, an Erotic Romance by Ella Ardent

V – Sold

Athena offers Steele a night of her undivided attention, only to have him startle her with a confession of love. There’s no place for such tender emotions in the dominatrix’s life—just passion and pleasure—or so she thinks until she learns that Steele has chosen to pose as a slave at a rival club’s notorious auction. Athena knows she has to intervene and buy Steele herself, but how much will she risk to ensure his safety? The future of the Phoenix? Her partnership with Rex? Or even herself?

Sold and Claimed

Sold, an Erotic Romance by Ella Ardent

I’m putting up the pre-orders this week for Sold, book #5 of The Phoenix, and Claimed, book #6 of The Phoenix. They’re available for pre-order at Smashwords, iBooks, Kobo and Amazon.

Sold will go on sale January 19, 2016. The book is just about done and I would have liked to have made it available sooner. But editing and formatting take longer than they used to, plus many of the portals shut down through the holidays and don’t post new content then. We might make it, but we might not—and if there’s an issue, there will be no one to contact. So, I figured it would be less stressful to release the book in the new year, to leave time for the inevitable backlog to be processed at the portals, and avoid panic.

You might notice that the description has changed. It turned out that I had the wrong end of this story, which was partly why I stalled out last year. It couldn’t be written that way. Once I found the flaw in my thinking, the storyline sorted itself out—almost like magic—and the book has fallen out of my fingertips. Writing like this is just wonderful, and such a relief!

Claimed, an Erotic Romance by Ella Ardent

Claimed will go on sale March 22. It’s flowing as well, so there are no fears of cancellation this time. (I always knew this story!) The main characters in this story are Kendra and Reid from Dangerous—Rex helps them to take their relationship to a new level.

After that, we’ll have the second Phoenix collection, and a new project from a new series that I think you’ll like. (This is part of that collaboration I mentioned earlier—I’ll tell you more about it once I have the covers.) There will be three more Phoenix novellas to complete that series, but the publication schedule is still in the works.

Revealed – Pre Orders

Revealed by Ella Ardent

Revealed is #1 of The Phoenix series.

Once upon a time, two partners built a wildly successful private BDSM club called The Plume, a place where every erotic fantasy could safely come true. When The Plume was destroyed and its members scattered, the partners decided not just to begin again but to improve on the original.

Welcome to The Phoenix, an international private BDSM club, risen from the ashes of The Plume. Once again, all erotic fantasies are possible and secret desires can be fulfilled.

Athena and Rex are prepared to launch the first two locations of their new club, The Phoenix, when an audacious computer science student insists their systems have been hacked. That would be shocking enough for Rex, the Master who keeps all secrets, even if the persistent young woman wasn’t the younger sister of Joanna who filled his fantasies for years. When he learns Amy wants to trade her expertise for special training at The Phoenix, Rex recognizes an offer he can’t refuse. Will Amy be the fulfillment of his fantasies? Will her information send Athena in pursuit of a new conquest? And is Amy all that she claims to be?

News About The Phoenix

It’s been quiet around here, but I’ve been working. (Have you?!)

My plan for the Phoenix has been refined – it will be an open-ended series of erotic romances, all set in the same world. Some of the same characters will have ongoing roles, but you won’t have to read the stories in order.

Right now, the scheme is to launch in May, with a short story introducing the series called Revealed, and also the first erotic romance novella in the series, which will be called Harnessed. I’m hoping to have some new covers to show to you soon.

My hope is also to always have the next novella available for pre-order, where possible, when one is published. So, I’ll get the pre-order for Revealed and Harnessed up soon. The on-sale date will likely be mid-May, by which point the pre-order for Hunted will be up. I’m aiming to publish novellas at 60 day intervals.

I learned a lot about pre-orders with Dangerous, including how difficult it is to manage them. I will distribute directly to B&N and KOBO in future, which means there will be pre-orders at KOBO at least. There might be pre-orders at Apple, depending on the length of their approval process. Of course, there will be pre-orders at Smashwords, too.

Stay tuned! I’m hoping to have some covers to show you soon.

What’s Next

Dangerous, an erotic romance by Ella Ardent

I mentioned to you earlier that I had another story to write before starting the Phoenix Series. That story is called Dangerous and I’m having a terrific time writing it.

Dangerous is a dark erotic romance, with bdsm and suspense. It will be published this summer in nine bi-weekly digital installments. When it’s complete, all the installments will be gathered into one volume, which will be available in print and digital in December.

I’ll let you know when I have a start date and more details to share.

Celebration

CelebrationSmall

Welcome to the Plume – where members are bound by desire and fantasies come true…

Debts are settled and new beginnings are launched in this culmination of the Plume Series. As the former members of the private BDSM club locate each other and undertake an initiative of their own, Athena plans a party to celebrate her new venture. Joanna and Mike will be getting married, even if Joanna’s newest idea is causing Mike some concern. Rex finds new hope in unexpected places, even before he’s presented with a gift that will both thrill and challenge him in the years ahead.

Also will be available at Apple and Sony.

btw, I’ve learned something new. My formatter uploads a lot of content directly to Apple, and she said their new rules (from February) require for erotica to have its first category as Fiction-Erotica-General. (These categories mirror BISAC codes, which define the appropriate category for any given work. That tells retailers how to list or shelve books.) Smashwords allows books to have two categories. I’d chosen Fiction-Erotica-General as the second category for Switch, because I didn’t think the order mattered. Maybe it does. I fixed the categories for Switch when she told me that, and have published Celebration with that category first. We’ll see if it turns up in the iTunes store faster as a result. I hope so!

Switch!
