October Newsletter

Hi Everyone!

Happy October!

A few different things to update everyone on this month…

Expanded Distribution!

Also known as a posh way to say I finally have my ebooks up for sale on a few more websites 🙂

My indi titles are now all available on Amazon, Kobo, Barnes & Noble/Nook, Apple Books (which was called iTunes or iBooks until recently), Smashwords (plus the places Smashwords distributes to) and Payhip. Links to all the channels are on the individual book pages on my website.

The only ones left to add are the free ones, which I’ll be doing in between writing projects, as time allows.

Print books

Apologies if any of my print titles are showing as temporarily unavailable. Create Space (the people who used to produce my paper backs) have just merged with Amazon, and there are a few teething troubles. They will hopefully all be available again soon, along with the print version of With a Kiss.

Content Notes

I’ve been working on a project for a little while now, getting content notes for my stories written and posted on my website. It’s something that will always be something of an ongoing project, but I finally have the indi ones more or less done.

I wanted to make them as easily findable as possible for those who want them, but not put them where people who consider them spoilers will trip over them – so they’re all grouped together on a dedicated page. There’s a link on each book page on my website, and I’ve updated each of the book files to put a link in them too.

While it’s never possible to cover every single topic someone might want to be warned about, I’ve tried to cover the main ones effectively. So – references to sexual violence, intimate partner violence, drug use, self harm, secondary character death etc.

I’ve made them as detailed as felt possible, noting where the content is on or off page, or where it’s a reference to something in the character’s past. It would be fair to say there are significant spoilers all over the place.

The books I’ve made content notes for are – Axel’s Pup, With a Kiss, Duck, Celebrate, Magpie, Worth Waiting For, Worth a Shot.

For what it’s worth, I think they make my stories sound a lot darker than they really are. They are mostly just a mixture of kinky and soppy.

Hopefully they will help where they can help and be ignored by everyone else 🙂

Here’s the Content Notes Page.

Social Media

I’m trying to change the way I use social media. The first step in that is going to be a complete social media detox. So, I’ll be taking a complete break from social media during October.

I’m also trying to speed up and get more writing done, so hopefully those two things will work well together 🙂

If you’d like to get in touch with me, I’ll still be reachable via e-mail, and I’ll still see the comments posted to this blog. However, it’s really unlikely I’ll see anything anyone says to me on Facebook (both page and profile), Twitter, Messenger or Pintrest.

Sorry in advance if it looks like I’m ignoring any one, that’s really not my intention!

New Releases

My last new release, for those who were on holidays at the end of August / beginning of September and might have missed it, was Straight to Hell. It’s a MM, BDSM, Erotic Romance Novella. Thank you to everyone who has read and reviewed so far!

The next release is the second edition of Once a Brat, which will come out at the start of November.

Works in Progress

I’m working hard to finish the new version of All the Gear. That should go off to my lovely editor some time this month.

Next up is Bayden’s Alpha. By the end of the month, this book will finally have my complete attention.

It probably wouldn’t be entirely truthful to say that Bayden’s Alpha is coming *soon*, since it’s a long book and will take quite some time to write, but it is now properly in the works 🙂

And that’s it – Hope everyone has a great October!

*Hugs*

  1. So glad to hear things are moving for you again! Just read straight to hell and loved it. Can’t wait for what comes next—and especially not for Bayden’s Alpha! I went back and reread axel’s pup after straight to hell and fell in love with the characters all over again 🙂
