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*

New Cover Art – Please read so you don’t accidentally re-buy without need!

Hi everyone!

The print version of FIT Guys Volume 1 has been finalised. The print proof is currently winging its way to me.

The cover is gorgeous. Once I saw it I couldn’t resist getting new e-book covers made for the series.

Over the next week or so, you’ll see the new covers rolling out over the various sales outlets. Now here’s the bit I’m slightly concerned about. The text hasn’t changed. So – if you bought it with the old cover, please don’t re-buy it. You should be able to just download a new copy from wherever you originally purchased, if you want your copy to have the new artwork on it. (If this raises a problem, please let me know.)

Fingers crossed no one will see the new cover and think it’s a new book without realising they have already got it. If this happens to you, send me an e-mail. Maybe we can work something out 🙂

The series will also appear on Barnes & Noble / Nook and iTunes for the first time.

All Romance E-books and iTunes will also have the follow up short stories available for free. Tony’s Move has only been available to read on a blog until now, so if you have the others you might want to keep an eye out for that one 🙂

And here are the new covers! Continue reading

June News Letter – Coming Soon, Sun, Avians, FIT and Misc

Hi everyone 🙂

I’m a day late with June, but since May completely passed me by I’m going to call it an improvement!

I have lots of bits of news on different things so I’ll jump right in.  Continue reading

Axel’s Pup in print :)

Hello everyone 🙂

First, thank you to everyone for their kindness and understanding about the Goodreads event story I had to withdraw from. Sara’s prompt has been taken up by Julia, and I have no doubt she is going to rock it!

Next, Axel’s Pup is now in print. It’s actually been out a little while, I’ve kept meaning to blog about it, but I kept putting it off hoping I’d have updates on other projects to add to the post. I finally gave up on that plan, lol.

Okay, so – print.

If you’ve read the e-version you’ll know that Axel’s Pup isn’t a small book. Unfortunately, the price of the print book is largely dictated by the size of the book.

I’ve kept the price as low as possible. I’ll be honest – I make my living out of e-books. I’m not aiming to make huge profits on the print side of things. It’s more about giving people the option, and the fact I do love having things in print 🙂 So, I’ve just taken the minimum price and rounded up to neaten things up.

It works out as £11.99 for the UK, €13.99 for Europe, and $14.99 for the US.

(If you’re curious, my royalty per print copy will be $0.75 US, £0.33 UK and €0.40 Europe.)

If you’re familiar with the exchange rates, you might notice that the US price is lower than the others. I’m guessing that it is due to print costs or what-not.

However, I can only keep the US price this low by limiting distribution from Amazon to other websites. Once I expand distribution, it will go up to about the same price as it is in other territories. I think that will be about $20.00. So, if you’re in the US and want a print copy, you might want to get it sooner rather than later. (I’ll try to give due warning before I put the price up.)

The book is 9 inches by 6 inches and 616 pages.

You can buy it on Amazon US, Amazon UK and Amazon Europe.

Any other questions about it, just shout 🙂
