Perfect Alignment Release Day!

I had so much fun revisiting the “world” from Perfect Formation, and getting to have a little more interaction with Taryn, Richard and Caleb. I talked about it here, so I won’t go on and on again. It’s also been a very interesting experiencing self-publishing a book for the first time. There have been some timing mis-haps, but otherwise it has been busy but still enjoyable.

I worked with a wonderful editor and fantastic cover artist, and I’m very pleased with the final product. At this point, all of the retail sites are live, except Kobo and Apple. Hopefully those will come online shortly.

If you have any questions, if I missed a retailer or a file type that you would like, please let me know and I’d be happy to look into it.

For the cover, blurb, excerpt and purchase links, please visit the book page here.

I hope you enjoy Perfect Alignment!

Oops

I thought I was giving myself plenty of buffer time for then non-writing aspects of getting Perfect Alignment out, but since this is my first time self-publishing, I seem to have underestimated the timing! Unfortunately it will not release tomorrow, but it will for sure be ready in June. Sorry! Hopefully this experience will give me a better idea of the timing for future books!

Perfect Alignment

As I mentioned earlier, I have one book out on submission, but another one that I’ve finished the rough draft and have decided to self-publish. It is set in the same “world” as my contemporary menage, Perfect Formation. Unlike PF, this book is not about three people making a relationship, but the hero and heroine do enjoy some serious sexy-times with the hero’s best friend when he comes to town. They even manage to surprise themselves with it, and kind of surprised me, as well. But I’ll let you find out about that when it comes out 😉

I haven’t written the official blurb, at least not a draft that you’d actually want to read, so I’ll just tell you about it. In Perfect Formation, you met Taryn and her guys, Caleb and Richard. Taryn owns a coffee shop, called Grounded, in North Fork, Massachusetts. One of her employees is Emma, a student at the nearby college.

Emma is in her last year of school, and she plans on heading back to Northern California when she’s done, to be near her family and their store, which she intends to work at. Since she’s been away at college, she’s discovered her submissive side, and enjoyed playing at a BDSM club. She’s on her way to visit Boston, with a trip to her club, of course, when she’s pulled over for speeding.

When Drew pulls Emma over he notices that she’s wearing a BDSM symbol on her necklace. As a Dom, he knows what it means. As a cop, he knows he should ignore it. Luckily for us, he just can’t quite manage to walk away.

Of course, you’ll get to see some of Caleb, Richard and Taryn, but I think you’ll fall for Drew and Emma, and I know you’ll have a soft spot for Drew’s friend Toby, when he comes to visit.

If you’re a fan of Pinterest, I made a board as I was writing Perfect Alignment and you might enjoy seeing some of the pics.

I’ll have the cover posted soon, and then a release date!

Tap-Tap-Tap

Hello? Is this thing on?

I’ve somehow managed to be away for two years, so it’s a little dusty here. I’m trying to make sure that things are in working order!

My apologize for my unplanned absence. I wish I had a list of excellent reasons that I haven’t been writing, but we’re just going to have to go with…life. Yeah, life happens, right?

At any rate, I have been writing up a storm the last few months. I’ve sent one novella off to submission and have decided to self-publish a novel in the same world as Perfect Formation. It’s called Perfect Alignment (I know, not the sexiest title ever, but it goes with the theme, so…) and it is currently in production mode (beta reads, edits, formatting). This is my first attempt at self-publishing, so I’m not sure what the timeline will be like, but it will probably release in June. I’ll post a date as soon as I figure it out! In the meantime, I’m working on another Perfect Fit story, tentatively titled Perfect Addition (I know, I know, I need an official titles person). I’ll tell you all about these in some upcoming posts, but, as I said, first I wanted to dust things off and make sure everything was in proper working order.

I’ve missed you all (for reals!) and I’m excited to be back in the swing of things.

Sweetest Seduction Release Day

Sweetest Seduction Cover

I’m so excited to introduce this new book to you! Sweetest Seduction is a novella set around Valentine’s Day. I had a lot of fun writing this book, thinking about what kind of date Keith would have to plan to get through Val’s thick skull that they would be great together. In fact, it’s the first time I ever went on an activity specifically for research on a book, and deducted the cost from my taxes. I felt so official! Many, many years ago I went on a horseback ride over the Hollywood hills, and I decided that was the perfect end to the marathon date that Keith takes Valerie on for. But, of course, it had been a while, so I grabbed my friend and made the trip. I, er, didn’t discuss with her the plans that Keith had for Val during the ride, so she may be a bit surprised by that section when she reads the book (let’s just say it involves a battery operated toy).

It’s also the first time I tried writing something for a holiday. I definitely feel that this book has a sweeter vibe than my others, because apparently I just have a sweet spot for this holiday. Who knew?! It’s not like I’ve ever had any particularly phenomenal Valentine’s Day dates or experiences, but I still melt over the idea of the right guy handing over a single rose (or more, I’m not picky!!), and that’s how Sweetest Seduction came to be.
Valentine's Day blog hop
If you’re the contest type, there will be three ways to win Sweetest Seduction in the next few days, including one here. I’ve joined the Valentine’s Day Blog Hop, which runs the 11th through the 14th. I’ll be giving away an ebook copy of Sweetest Seduction, of course, as well as a necklace. So check back here tomorrow and I’ll give you the details for my contest, plus a couple of others.

Happy reading!!

Sweetest Seduction – Coming Soon(ish)!

I’m excited to announce that my Valentine’s Day story, Sweetest Seduction, has been accepted by Ellora’s Cave. This is my first attempt to write a holiday specific story. It’s also shorter than my other books, with most of the book taking place in one day. One hella-fun filled day, of course! I don’t have any official blurbage yet, but here’s a general idea.

Val’s known Keith for a while. She’s his accountant. And if she dreams about his body pressed into hers instead of his finances, well, there’s no need to let him in on that fact. The hunky photographer spends his days with beautiful models, there’s absolutely no way she’s going to compete with that. Even if he has been throwing hints her way.

Keith is fed up with trying to sweet talk his accountant into going out with him. It’s Valentine’s Day, and knowing Val, she doesn’t have any plans beyond putting in a full day’s work. No more asking nicely, he’s just going to plan the date and pull her along until she gets with the program. He’s sure once she sees he can give her a proper date, she’ll see that he might just be the man for her.

I’ll be sure to keep you updated on what happens with Sweetest Seduction, as well as post an excerpt! Also, I know this isn’t the story I’ve mentioned working on (I’m such a pain in the ass, I know). But I hope to have news on the contemporary with menage, soon(ish). 😛
