Almost at 40!

01_The-Princess-the-Pea-&the-Night-of-Passion_reducedHappy 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.”
-Wendi

“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.”
-Birgit

If you haven’t checked out the book, go ahead and give it a try. It’s FREE on all retailers.

Newest Cover & Publishing Schedule

06_ravishing-rapunzel-bHappy hump day to you. I do so hope you have as fabulous a day as that expression implies. ¬†ūüėČ

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.

As always,

May your love remain in bloom.

Dream Trysts is Here and Just 99 Cents!

04_Dream-TrystsHappy 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.

Cover Reveal: Finding Bliss

05_Finding-BlissWhen 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.

Dream Trysts Available for Pre-Order

04_Dream-TrystsAugust is here, and it’s known for being hot, so what better time to release the latest in my Passion-Filled Fairy Tale series?

Dream Trysts: A Sleeping Beauty Story drops on Aug. 17 and is available for pre-order now.  The book will be $2.99 for those who pre-order it, and will jump to its normal price of $3.99 after on Aug. 19.  Like the other books in the series, it will be FREE to Kindle Unlimited Subscribers. The book takes an interesting twist on Sleeping Beauty, giving our wicked queen a little more motivation than just not being invited to  an event for a baby.

I really hope you enjoy this tale when it comes out. If you want to get a sneak peek, I’ve got a couple of Advance Review Copies available. You can grab one by filling out this form. ARCs are only available to my list subscribers, so you’ll be added to the mailing list when you request an ARC. ¬†Don’t worry, the mailing list gets you other cool things, too. In honor of Dream Trysts, I’ve written another short story, Finding Bliss, just for Mailing List subscribers. ¬†Because this story is expands the Dream Trysts story, it will become available Aug. 20, three days after Dream Trysts releases.

Dream Trysts: A Sleeping Beauty Story Publishing in August

04_Dream-TrystsThe latest story in the Passion-Filled Fairy Tales will publish in the middle of next month. I’d hoped to get it out the door sooner, but I fell way behind this summer, and ended up needing to hire a different editor. ¬†However, things are on track for mid August.

As a bonus for subscribers to the mailing list, I’ll be sending out a short story, Finding Bliss, on the day that Dream Trysts publishes. Finding Bliss¬† is a companion story to ¬†Dream Trysts¬† and will only be available to mailing list subscribers. It’s my gift to the folks who are kind enough to let me into their inboxes every other month.

Last but not least, I have some Advanced Review Copies available for Dream Trysts. Advanced Review Copies (ARC) are available to anyone on my mailing list. I’ll be sending out the ARC sign up sheet one last time on Friday, or you can sign up for it now.

All ARC recipients are expected to leave a review  (on Goodreads and/or Amazon) for the book when it publishes. Links to where to leave reviews will be noted when the book publishes.

My Apologies to Kindle Unlimited Subscribers

03_Cinders-and-AshI was checking my Amazon author account the other day and noticed that I hadn’t had anyone in Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited (KU) program read the book this month. Usually, on the Author Dashboard, you can tell how many pages of your books have been read. Cinders & Ash had zero, which I thought was odd.

For some reason, I didn’t think it odd enough, and figured things would pick up. However, I did happen to want to check the page numbers for my books enrolled in the Select (the author name of the program that allows books to be in KU) program. Amazon has a secret way of calculating a book’s total pages, and from time-to-time, the number of pages they calculate for you book will change. Beauty and her Beastly Love lost one page, so I noted that. When I went to check on Cinders & Ash, it told me it wasn’t enrolled in Select!

Enrollment in Select lasts 90 days, and you can check a box to automatically re-enroll a book. I must have, at some point, unchecked the box. Amazon doesn’t send notice of when your Select term is about to expire (which is fine), so I didn’t realize it had. So, I am very sorry, because I have been promoting the book on Twitter and Facebook saying it’s FREE on Kindle Unlimited. But it hasn’t been because the book had expired from the program.

My apologies, and I’ll pay better attention in the future. I did re-enroll, so if you’re in Select, it’s now available. If you’re in Select and you bought Cinders & Ash when you normally would’ve just borrowed it, forward me your receipt, and I’ve got something special for you. You can contact me at rosetta (at) rosettabloom.com.
