Duck! and News! and More News!

Hi Everyone,

Three posts in one, so if one part doesn’t interest you, keep reading another topic will turn up soon 🙂


Part One –

Duck! is out now!

image

It’s on Amazon, All Romance E-books and Goodreads. The print version is also on Createspace. Ever since midnight last night I’ve been waiting for it to go on line with Barnes & Noble so I could do all the links at the same time, but no luck yet. Will update when it goes on line 🙂

If you have any questions about it, feel free to ask in the comments section (or anywhere else where I’m bound to see it – I’m easy like that). If you’d like a review copy feel free to e-mail me.

In case you’ve managed to avoid reading it until now – here’s the blurb:

Raised among humans, Ori Jones only discovered he was an avian shifter six months ago. Unable to complete a full shift until he reaches his avian maturity, he still can’t be sure of his exact species.

But with species comes rank, and rank is everything to the avians. When a partial shift allows the elders to announce that they believe Ori to be a rather ugly little duckling, he drops straight to the bottom rung of their hierarchy.

Life isn’t easy for Ori until he comes to the attention of a high ranking hawk shifter. Then the only question is, is Ori really a duck—and what will his new master think when the truth eventually comes out?


Part Two –

I have an agent. Her name is Deidre Knight. Her agency is The Knight Agency and she’s really lovely. Huge shout out thanks to Tibby Armstrong for introducing us!

If you’re wondering what this means from a readers point of view, I’ll tell you where things stand at the moment.

I’m still going to be self publishing English language e-book editions and print on demand editions the same as I have been doing the last couple of years. I have four series on the go, and all of them will carry on as before – nothing cancelled, nothing altered. (Those four series are FIT Guys, Kinky Cupid, Avian Shifters and Werewolves & Dragons, btw.)

However, you might see foreign language editions of some of my books at some point in the future. Audio books are also a possibility.

Again, any questions, feel free to ask. I probably won’t know the answer, but you can still ask 🙂


Part Three –

I’m on Facebook. I didn’t actually kick or scream but a fair bit of dragging might have been involved, lol.

You can find my profile here – and friend me if you want to.

You can also find my author page here – and like that if you want to.

Everything’s a bare thin on the ground there at the moment, but I’ll add more as time goes on 🙂

Questions – well I know even less about Facebook than I do about agent, but you can take a shot if you like 🙂


And I think that is it for now…

Hope everyone is having a great Wednesday!

*Hugs*

Avian Shifters – Release Scheule and Cover Reveal

Hi everyone!

I have news on the Avian Shifters series. It’s about a year later than I intended to be able to announce these release dates but never mind, lol.

First the follow up novellas I spoke about before. The bad news is that they didn’t work out as hoped. Raynard had to make certain mistakes in order for the plot of the first follow up novella to work, but he’s stubbornly refused to do that. The good news is that the follow up novellas will be replaced with follow up short stories – and those stories will be free. Free is always cool, right?

On to the novels!

They’ll come out in e-book and print and the e-book version will be released through Amazon, All Romance Ebooks, Barnes & Noble and iTunes. The plan is to upload each one for pre-order about two weeks before the actual release day.

Duck! has been polished, edited and proofed. I’m going through the proofs now. It will go off to file conversion in a day or two.

Duck! will be released in August 2015.

This is the gorgeous new cover by Kris Norris…

Magpie is being polished at the moment. It has a few more processes left to go through yet.

Magpie should be released in November 2015.

It has a fantastic new cover too!

And, the last book that’s part of this announcement, but certainly not least…

Albatross hasn’t been written yet, but it has been plotted out.

Albatross has a tentative release date of May 2016.

I already have a wonderful cover for it.

Okay, that’s all for now 🙂 Back to working on the books!

Axel’s Pup – Available to Pre-order Now!

100. Axel's Pup

Axel’s Pup finally has a release date! It’s going to be available for immediate reading on Wednesday 11th March but it’s available for pre-order on All Romance E-books and Amazon now. I’m intending it to go out to Smashwords and its various channels on the day or release.

So…

Axel’s Pup. You’ve been hearing about this one for a while! It’s a much longer novel than I’ve ever published before (176,000 words – larger than Duck! and Magpie combined!).

It’s Male/Male, BDSM, Human/Werewolf. There are motorcycles, and whips, and leather, and shifters, and tattoos, and kink, and I’m so excited about finally being able to share it with you I’m finding it hard to type because I’m literally shaking!

In some ways it’s the kind of book people who are familiar with my work might expect, in other ways it is a little bit different. I don’t use trigger warnings (for reasons I won’t go into here) but, like always, if you’re concerned about anything in particular you can email me and I’ll do my best to give you as much relevant information as I can 🙂

Also, if you’re a blogger/reviewer, and you’re interested in a review copy of the book, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll see what I can do. I know there are a couple of reviewers out there who I’ve spoken with about this book. I have a list, but if you want to send me an e-mail and remind me about things like what format you prefer that would be much appreciated 🙂

This is the Goodreads link.

This is the blurb:

As the landlord of The Dragon’s Lair and leader of The Black Dragons Motorcycle Club, Axel Carmichael has seen it all and done it all. He’s a respected and experienced dom. Nothing shocks him any more, and nobody catches him off guard.

When Bayden rides up to The Dragon’s Lair on a bike worth more than most men earn in a year, and immediately demonstrates that he has far more attitude than sense, it’s easy for Axel to write him off as a silly little rich boy who’s about to get himself killed.

But, there’s more to Bayden than meets the eye. He’s no silly little boy, rich or otherwise, and werewolves aren’t easy to kill.

And here’s an excerpt. Because it’s a longer book, it’s a longer excerpt – the whole first chapter!

Chapter One
