Happy Sunday to you. I hope you’ve had a great week.
This was an exciting past week because Ravishing Rapunzel finally released and I had a couple of sales going on. Those all ended this morning, and things are back to normal.
But one thing I did last week that I didn’t discuss much was ensure that I have paperback copies of all the ebooks in my fairy tale series. I went in and added paperback copies of Dream Trysts, Finding Bliss and Ravishing Rapunzel. Given the price differential and the ease of ebook reading, most people buy electronic copies of my books. However, for those who love paper, the option is there for all the fairy tales.
The short stories are too short to make paperbacks of the singles, but I’m going to work on the compilation paperback this week, and with luck, this time next week, I’ll have a post about it.
You can win a $25 gift card and get some cool books for 99 cents. The Treat Yourself romance book event is going on now here. Check out all the books that are just 99 cents and enter a raffle for a $25 Amazon gift card (scroll to the bottom of the page for the raffle).
And while it’s not featured in this sale, Ravishing Rapunzel is just 99 cents while it’s in pre-order. Go ahead and grab it if you’d like. There’s no look-inside for pre-orders, so you can sample a few chapters on wattpad if you like.
Happy Wednesday to you. I just wanted to let you know that I’ve uploaded Finding Bliss: A Dream Trysts Story to Amazon. The book costs $1.99 there, or you can still get it free by subscribing to the mailing list.
I had planned to leave it as a book available only to subscribers. Unfortunately, when I tried to get the next book in the series added to my series page without adding Finding Bliss, it messed up my series page, which disappeared. I sent in a request to Amazon to fix it last night, and just now, about five minutes ago, the series page was back. Woo hoo! Awesome customer service, Amazon!
Anyway, so if you just prefer to buy your stories and not join the mailing list, you can do that with Finding Bliss. If you’d like to get it free by joining the mailing list, you may. Just sign up here.
A quick note that I changed the cover of Finding Bliss. I made an adjustment to the picture, in case I wanted to be able to advertise it at any point in the future. The previous cover, while having the same models, was more suggestive. (I recently got rejected from some advertising due to the other picture, so, you live and learn.)
Anyway, as a last note, Ravishing Rapunzel is on pre-order. You can grab it for 99 cents through release day on Feb 17. Sometime on the 18th or 19th, it will go up to full price at $2.99.
Happy Thursday to you. I hope your week is going well.
I don’t normally check each book page daily, and Amazon doesn’t send notifications when there are new reviews on a book so I don’t always see a new review immediately.
However, I popped in this morning and saw that the Princess, the Pea, and the Night of Passion was up to 39 reviews on Amazon. That’s just awesome! I love it when readers leave reviews, and the last ones were really positive.
Here’s a couple snippets from two of them:
“Passion love and a lesson in eavesdropping wound into a unique version, a very adult translation of a wonderful fairy tale.”
“An old classic? No, it’s a really great adult version.This short story is well written, sensual, humorous and the characters were well developed.”
If you haven’t checked out the book, go ahead and give it a try. It’s FREE on all retailers.
Happy hump day to you. I do so hope you have as fabulous a day as that expression implies. 😉
I just thought I’d drop you a quick note to let you know what’s up with my publishing schedule. I’m holed up writing all of January, so I haven’t been posting as much as I should. However, this month of writing should result in three projects over the coming months.
First up, I’ve got my Rapunzel Retelling, Ravishing Rapunzel. That’s the cover right there. Woo hoo! I’m going to get that set up for pre-order sometime within the next week. My plan is to have the book available by Feb. 17. I’ve got the cover, but I need to write the blurb before I set it up for pre-order. That’s also why the cover isn’t clickable. I don’t have a blurb to tell you much more about this tale. The good news is the bulk of the book is written. I’ve got to go in and flesh out a few things and then get it to the editor. But, I’m on target for the 17th, and once it’s set up for pre-order, that will be the final date, as Amazon frowns on the notion of you moving your pre-order. I’ll report back with the final date once the pre-order is set up.
I’m also working on a Rumpelstiltskin tale. That one isn’t as cheery as the other fairy tales because it’s an origin story for a character who is pretty nasty in his fairy tale. However, it’s different and sexy. That will appear in an anthology in March, and I’ll be able to publish it separately by April. I’ll have more details on it as the anthology gets closer to publication date.
I’m also working on a story for an anthology centered around a place called The Diamond Club. We picked our own cover images and the artist is going to design cohesively themed covers for it. I’ll actually be writing this one in February, and the anthology is coming out in May. So, lots of fun.
Anyway, just wanted to give you an update on what I’m up to. Hope everyone out there is doing well.
May your love remain in bloom.
Looking for some great 99 cent and free sexy books? Well, look no further than the 12 days of Sexmas. Books on the list include everything from Lustily Ever After to Afterglow. Today, The Princess, the Pea and the Night of Passion is one of the featured books. Feel free to check out the entire list at 12 Days of Sexmas blog.
I realize it’s been a while since I’ve done a blog post, so I apologize for my absence. I’ve been plugging away on writing, trying to get way more done than I have in the past. I’m still working on Rapunzel, which I had to take a break from earlier. I think I’ll finish that tale by the end of December, for a January publication date.
I’ve been participating in a a few InstaFreebie giveaways. I’ve been making sure I email my mailing list because that’s a must. If you want to get in on all the news, be sure to join my mailing list. Unfortunately, I’ve been bad about posting to the blog, so I’m going to get better about that.
I thought I’d mention a promo I was in earlier this month. It’s a way for people to get free books by joining an author’s mailing list. While the promo officially ran through Dec. 12th, many of the authors still have their books available. Check out these fun romance stocking stuffers. They’re all free via Instafreebie and a great gift for yourself, so you can relax and chill out in these final hectic days as you try to finish your holiday shopping.
I’ll be participating in another giveaway after Christmas, so I’ll be sure to post on the blog, too, as I won’t be sending to the newsletter until January.
Until next time, have a great one.
-May your love remain in bloom.

Happy Wednesday to you.
The fourth book in the Passion-Filled Fairy Tales Series went live today. And the cool news is, for today only, you can grab Dream Trysts: A Sleeping Beauty Story at 99 cents.
I don’t normally offer my full-length novels at 99 cents, but I thought I’d try it once for opening day, and see how it worked. So, if you’d like to grab it now for it’s discounted price, go ahead and do it. I’ll be raising the book to its normal price, $3.99 on Thursday (literally, at midnight ET, I’m going to plug in the new price and it should go into effect by 6 am– Amazon is generally pretty quick about that kind of thing).
Starting next week, I’ll be offering a new freebie for my mailing list, Finding Bliss. This story is related to Dream Trysts: A Sleeping Beauty Story, but you don’t need to have read that book to enjoy Finding Bliss. I had been offering Nikki & Mike free to mailing list subscribers, but that offering will cease once Finding Bliss is available, Aug. 22. I’m in the process of updating the back matter (that’s the stuff at the back of all the books). All the Passion-Filled Fairy Tales have the correct information about the freebie. I’ll be updating the Romance: Trysts series this week, so the back matter in each of those books points to the correct freebie.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy Dream Trysts.
When Dream Trysts: A Sleeping Beauty Story went up for pre-order, I noted that I’d have a special short story exclusively for my mailing list. That story is Finding Bliss: A Dream Trysts Story.
As the main Dream Trysts is a Sleeping Beauty tale, it focuses on the love story between the cursed princess, Briar Rose, and her love, the charming prince. The FREE short story, Finding Bliss, focuses on Blissa and Edmund, the Princess Briar Rose’s parents.
You should really read Dream Trysts before reading Finding Bliss, but both stories are fun and steamy. Here’s the cover and I hope you enjoy. Please note that Finding Bliss will only be available to mailing list subscribers. You cannot get it at any online retailer. Subscribers will be able to get their hands on this freebie starting Aug. 22. If you’re interested, you can join the mailing list here.
