Kinky Cupid – Coming Soon

Hi Everyone,

Some of you will already be familiar with the Kinky Cupid Series. It’s what I like to refer to as my Frankenstein series. It’s been through the wars. Three different publishers, three different cover styles. The order of the books have changed twice and at various times only the second or fourth books have been available. Release dates have been pushed back several times too.

But, over the next nine months I am going to get it all finished, and it will all be available – nice and neat and in order as an indi series.

I have the rights to all the existing titles back, I’ve written the missing title, I’m working on the final re-working, and I have new cover art by the fantabulous Kris Norris.

The first book – Once a Brat – was originally published by Riptide Publishing. A new edition will be released in November 2018. I don’t plan to change the text at all. This is the new cover…

The second book in the series – Bast Over Apex – originally came out with All Romance Ebooks under the title Call Me Sir, Boy! as part of their Perfect Strangers Collection. I got the rights back quite a while ago and the indi edition is already out, as is the audio version. The text was tweaked and re-edited to fit the Kinky Cupid series, but not substantially changed. Click on the cover below to see the book page on my website.

The third title in the series is called Sticks and Stones. It’s completely new. I’ve only just finished writing it and it will be going off to editorial this week. For those of you who have read some of the other titles in the series, this is Dan the bartender’s story and he’s paired with a new character to the series. It will be released in February 2019.

And, last but not least, the fourth story in the series is All the Gear. It was originally released under the title All the Gear, No Idea, by All Romance Ebooks as another part of their Perfect Stranger Collection. This one may well end up being re-written from scratch. There is so much I want to change, it will probably be easier to do that than to edit the existing story. The same characters will find their happy ending, but the way they get there might change quite a bit. So far the only thing that’s certain is the cover!

And that will be the series complete!

Before that series, I have another new title – Straight to Hell – in a new collection – Hearts and Handcuffs. More about that to come in another post 🙂

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!
