From May 1st to May 5th, my short story The Rape of Persephone will be FREE on Amazon.

PErsephone

It still amuses me that my one story with no erotic content is consistently my best seller. If you haven’t read it yet, you can grab a copy on the 1st! Or you can pay the dollar and get it now.

CounselWicked_CvrPDFSwirl Awards Finalist  Badge

I do not yet know when the awards will be announced. But yay!!!!

In other news, Burden of Truth has been retitled. It is now Haven’s Fall, and it is with the line editor. I’ve been told that I’ll have edits back soon, and we’re shooting for a November release.

I’ve seen the cover, and it’s AWESOME. And that’s all I can tell you, so there. NYAH!!!

Sins of the Father is coming along, and is so far off outline that I can’t see the original route from here. I’m fairly certain that it will still end up in the same place, but instead of my original map, I’m taking the scenic back roads. Which have been educational — I never would have figured out that THAT character was the ultimate big bad otherwise. (Seriously, this one character has been thumbing their nose at me for two and a half books now.)

And in other, other news, I’ve found out that one of my publishers is closing their doors, and will be reverting rights. They’re being very lovely and generous about the whole thing, and even including cover art in the reversion. I’m sorry to see them go. But just when I think I’m out of the self-publishing gig…

I am self-admittedly lousy at marketing. Especially when I’m in the middle of writing a novel, or working on edits, or doing the fifty-million things that need to be done around the house as a mom and domestic engineer (cough*housewife*cough). Which is my way of saying that I’d rather have root canal than do promotions.

Bad writer, no biscuit.

So…. here are the things that are currently available!

Most recently is Bi Magic, from Forbidden Fiction. I have two stories in this anthology: Fools Rush In and To Market. A print version is also available.

Fools Rush In is also available as a standalone story, also from Forbidden Fiction

There’s also Her Captive, which was my playing with an idea that came from Tom Smith’s song “Kidnapped by Pirates is Good!”

HerCaptive

Then there’s the AWARD-WINNING House of Sable Locks from Circlet Press, which is available in ebook, in print, and in a delicious audio-book.

There are my two self-publishing experiments, the Tales from the Arena books. Opening Gambit and Playing for Keeps are available as ebooks and in print.

And hey, if you want to go back to the beginning, there’s also Princes of Air, my first novel!

princes-of-air-cover-ARe

There will be a sequel eventually — I have an idea of where the story will go. I just need to get it down on the page.

As soon as I finish these edits. And that novel over there. And the dishes….

I finally finished redoing all the formatting that I somehow managed to strip out when I was getting the file ready. So here is book two of Tales from the Arena, now live on Smashwords and All Romance books. Amazon will be along presently.

Discovered that converting the files to Smashwords format stripped some of the formatting, and I didn’t notice. Just uploaded the corrected file for Opening Gambit, and am reading through Playing for Keeps to fix things there. If you bought a copy of Opening Gambit (I know someone did!), please go and get the updated copy?

Smashwords JUST went live, and should be propagating down to other venues soon.  Amazon will be up later. And I’ll see about an actual paper version, too. Since, you know, I can.

The Ishkarin were created to be the perfect soldiers. The perfect predators. The perfect sadists. But what happens to the perfect soldiers when the war they were created to fight is over? In the Arena, the Ishkarin find an outlet for their natural instincts. Populated by the Collared, the sexual submissives who live to kneel before the predators, the Arena guarantees that the Ishkarin will not prey on the people they have sworn to protect.

On the eve of his appointment as second-in-command to the Ishkarin forces, Gavir is gifted with a night with Iras, the so-called Queen of the Arena. One wild night of passion and pain later, Gavir is enthralled by the woman who wears the red Collar. But when his fascination reveals a secret long buried, how far will Gavir go to protect the woman who has captured his heart?

Okay. Here’s a blurb. What do you think?

The Ishkarin were created to fight for Tyese. They are the perfect predators, the perfect soldiers, the perfect sadists. But what happens when the war is over? In the Arena, the Ishkarin find an outlet to their natural instincts. Populated by the Collared, the sexual submissives who live to kneel before the predators, the Arena guarantees that the Ishkarin will not turn on the people they are sworn to protect.

On the eve of his appointment as second-in-command to the Ishkarin forces, Gavir is gifted with a night with Iras, the so-called Queen of the Arena.

Tonight I received the cover art for the two books that I’ll be self-publishing. The artist is Carey Abbott, and BOY, am I happy I tripped over her site!
