Revealed Now At Barnes & Noble and All Romance eBooks!

You can now find all three Masked books at Barnes and Noble and All Romance eBooks! I’ll be uploading to Bookstrand as soon as I can see straight.

All I’ve done for the last 3 days is format and upload and format again and learn so much new stuff in this realm of self-publishing that I’m a bit bleary eyed. Forget NaNoWriMo…lol. I am glad though that I have been learning. I’ve been asking a lot of questions and trying different things and as I plan to continue self-publishing throughout next year, these learning curve frustrations are good.

I’ll write more about why I’m self-publishing another day.

For now though, I wanted to give y’all the links (B&N, ARe) so you can go read about the latest developments with these two awesome but complex men.

Revealed Delayed But Coming Soon…

There were some awesome emails from readers over the weekend that simply made everything I do and go through worth it. All the grumbling and griping and whining and crying and hair pulling and characters beating me into submission, is all worth the emails from readers WANTING this book.

I want this book too.

I got the go-ahead from one of my beta readers last night and she was thrilled with it. Loved it. I am working on the formatting today and the blurb and will look to upload it by tonight to Smashwords and Amazon (though it’ll take about 24-48 hours for it to show up on Amazon) and Barnes and Noble (it’ll take 24-72 hours for it to show up). I’ll also be uploading to All Romance eBooks and Bookstrand. You will have a variety of places to choose from!

I appreciate your patience… Y’all are the best!

And for those of you waiting for a M/F contemporary, it’s coming up next!

Unmasked Update #2

So, I’m a little late. What else is new? My day yesterday got all messed up once I found out my son’s rec league play-off game was changed to last night from tonight. It totally screwed up the flow of things on my end and by the time we got home last night, I was so frustrated and tired and bummed that they lost the game, I simply went to bed.

This morning, I worked on the blurb, went through another round of formatting and last minute checking of things with Unmasked. It’s been uploaded to Smashwords, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. We are now in the waiting stages for it to be live and available for purchase. I have set up accounts with All Romance eBooks and Bookstrand to be able to publish there as well. I am waiting to hear back on account approval.

As I said yesterday, I will let you know as soon as it is ready for your Nooks and Kindles and iPads and Androids and PC’s.

I will be in the writing corner this weekend working on the third book, Revealed. It will be published November 10-11. During NaNoWriMo I will be finishing up Trouble in the Making (the cover is in the works) and the next race car book as I know many of you are anxious for it!

For now, though, it’s wait unfortunately…

With his mask secured in place, Bobby enters Abyss with a single purpose, a single desire. Thor. It’s been a busy week and he’s so anxious to see the dominant again, he doesn’t even take the time to head home and change into more appropriate fetish club attire. He hasn’t been able to shake the lust and memories of how it felt to be under Thor’s hands, to surrender to his need for a man, for Thor, and it drives Bobby to the one thing, the one place he knows he can find fulfillment.

Thor doesn’t flog men, at least not in public, but the undeniable attraction and need he feels the moment he spots Bobby, dressed more for a business meeting than a night out with lifestylers, compels him to make an exception that will change everything he’s known and everything everyone has thought about him.

Nervous and stripped of his shirt, Bobby is strapped to a St. Andrews Cross, surrendering to the pleasure that is Thor with a flogger. Thor’s whispered words of need and encouragement strengthen Bobby’s resolve that tonight is the night he must remove the mask and reveal his identity, that tonight he must reveal his longing for more than one night, once a week club meetings.

Will Thor still want him? There’s only one way to find out…

Back to Writing

I spent a lot of time revising Masked, formatting it. I’ll be spending just as much time on Unmasked for it’s release next weekend. In the meantime, though, I am writing. I am finishing up Trouble in the Making and the 3rd story which will follow Unmasked. This will free up November for me to finish the 2nd race car book, Drive Shaft. It’s been my goal to get it finished by the time NASCAR season was done and well, both will be done by end of November. It is my NaNoWriMo project.

Also in book news, I have decided to self-publish the 3rd Blue Jeans and Hard Hats book. I have let Samhain know this so now I’m letting you, my readers know it. Basically, I wanted to be able to have a release date before late Summer 2012 and we simply couldn’t get it worked out that way. I am aiming for a February release for it. I hope y’all are looking forward to Blue’s story as much as I *finally* enjoyed writing it. It was a hard-fought book, but I am pleased with it.

For those who have purchased Masked, thank you. For those who haven’t, yet. Why not? It’s a really hot little number…grins. Remember, you can find it at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and Smashwords. I’ll be uploading both Masked and Unmasked to All Romance eBooks next week.

Have a great one y’all! I’m off for more coffee and to get back to writing…

Birthday Bash – The Forbidden Bookshelf

Today, I have Diana and Tanya, the Mistress’ of a fairly new blog on the block, The Forbidden Bookshelf. I have found that both are very fair and honest in their opinions of erotica, erotic romance, and BDSM erotica/erotic romance…

They are also generous ladies and at the end of my Birthday Bash, they will gifting a reader with $15 in eBook Bucks from All Romance eBooks!

Diana:

Birthday Memory: The birthday memory that jumps out at me was my 37th birthday. We’d gone to the mall the day before, and my son picked up a yucky virus (kids + mall play areas = GERMS!). I spent my whole birthday holding and rocking my poor little feverish boy! Dinner and cake plans were cancelled. He was only one year old at the time. Is it a good or bad memory? Well, bad because he was sick, but I did get to cuddle with him all day. Someday he won’t want his mom to hold him, so I have to appreciate the times he let me. (Had we gone out for dinner, it would have been to a Mexican restaurant. That’s my favorite food!)

Available from Amazon

Okay!  My favorite book choice is A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole.
I love this book because it was the first paranormal romance that I read. It introduced me to the world of beastly alpha males who see what they want and take it. Of course, they must have a soft spot in their hearts for love to balance their beast-side. The shower scene in this book – oh, wow. Unforgetable!

Blurb:

A mythic warrior who’ll stop at nothing to possess her . . .

After enduring years of torture from the vampire horde, Lachlain MacRieve, leader of the Lykae Clan, is enraged to find the predestined mate he’s waited millennia for is a vampire. Or partly one. This Emmaline is a small, ethereal half Valkyrie/half vampire, who somehow begins to soothe the fury burning within him.

A vampire captured by her wildest fantasy . . .

Sheltered Emmaline Troy finally sets out to uncover the truth about her deceased parents — until a powerful Lykae claims her as his mate and forces her back to his ancestral Scottish castle. There, her fear of the Lykae — and their notorious dark desires — ebbs as he begins a slow, wicked seduction to sate her own dark cravings.

An all-consuming desire . . .

Yet when an ancient evil from her past resurfaces, will their desire deepen into a love that can bring a proud warrior to his knees and turn a gentle beauty into the fighter she was born to be?

Book of Secrets

Tanya:

This new book — and series — has so many elements that completely appeal to the smexy reader in me. Set in nineteenth-century England, this is the story of seduction by the dangerous, mysterious, sexy, and oh-so-deliciously dominant, dark Fae, Thane. And when this dark Fae/sin Lust, finds his predestined virtue Chasity, and subsequently falls in love with her, he falls hard! Yum! I think it’s true that the higher the pedestal, the harder the fall. In addition, the sexual tension and smexin’ scenes are definitely… engaging! 🙂 A true story of lust being hard to restrain and innocence corrupted!

~*~Blurb~*~

Of old, humans and Faeries have dwelt side by side in parallel realms. Only the canniest mortals recognize the alluring creatures that often walk–and lie–among them.

The righteous Fae of the Seelie Court cherish an ancient quarrel with their Dark counterparts: a curse born of anger and deceit. The Unseelie Court will perish unless one of is princes can win a woman’s love–honestly, without coercion… and love her wholly in return.

To halt the slow demise of his people, Prince Thane–the embodiment of Lust–infiltrates the Georgian court to seduce his mortal inverse. Noblewoman Chastity Lennox is purity incarnate–a sensual prize well worth winning. But Thane’s carnal quest proves more challenging than he ever dreamed.

No other has ever been able–or willing–to resist his erotic charms. Chastity’s resolve is maddening… and intriguing. It makes him want her all the more. But how best to seduce one who truly seems above temptation? Discover her greatest weakness and become the intoxicating essence of her deepest, most forbidden desires..
