THEN HE KISSED HER — You can vote to have this story published!

What I love about the publishing world is it is constantly changing. Lately, it seems to change every other week, and that's exciting. I like to try the different opportunities in publishing and see which ones work for me. I enjoy having my books published in the traditional manner through the large NY publishing houses. I also enjoy working with small presses. I like to self-publish my stuff because it gives me an amazing feeling of accomplishment working on every single aspect of the process, from writing, to creating covers, to publishing (I leave the editing to a professional).

Now I'm giving crowd-sourced publishing a try. What is that? It's where the reader gets a say in what books will be published. Amazon has begun the Kindle Scout program. For a month time period they will post authors' books and you, the reader, get to read the beginnings. You vote for the books you want to see published. Should one of the books you vote for end up ultimately getting published, you will receive a free copy of that book one week before release. (This is all digital.)

So doesn't that sound cool? You can have a hand in the publishing process!  And I'm asking you for your vote! You can click over to read the beginning of THEN HE KISSED HER right now, and vote. I love mermaids and have always wanted to publish a mermaid story, so now here's my chance. This story is set in Wales during the 19th century and features a burly, yet kind fisherman who has dreams of netting a mermaid. It's a faery tale!

the Paris Secrets trilogy

You can get it now! Available in paperback or digital, the entire Paris Secrets trilogy is now available at Amazon and B&N and Smashwords. (The paperback is only avail at Amazon.) This book includes all three stories, WINDOW, SCREEN, and SKIN.

I know, the trilogy is out before the single story SKIN. Why is that? Well, that's just the way things worked out. And since I'm announcing the trilogy early, you have a chance to get all three at once. Or you can wait for SKIN to release August 12th if you've already read the first two.

Just to let you know, at Amazon, the paperback (priced at $14.99) is actually on sale for $13.49. Awesome deal! And the digital version is ONLY $7.99. That's a dollar less for all three stories than if you bought them individually. And if you buy the paperback, Amazon with do their Match thingie and let you buy the digital version for only $2.99 (if you're like me and like to have your favs in both paper and digital format).

So what are you waiting for? Get them now!

2 For 1 Nocturnes this fall

So take a look at my 2014 book releases to the left there.  See October?  Yep, that's two stories.  Not two books.  They'll both be in the same book.  Two for one.

Harlequin has been planning to switch up things with their Nocturne line for a while.  Beginning in July they will no longer put out 2 different titles every month.  Instead, they'll have three offerings on the shelf, and each of those books will have two different stories from two different authors (usually) in it.  And...they will now stay on the shelves three months instead of one.  I believe though, that if you only want the one book, you'll be able to order them that way, but only digitally.  (Pretty sure about that one, but don't quote me on it.)

So in October BEYOND THE MOON and GHOST WOLF will come out as a big double book.  BEYOND is the last in the Order of the Stake series and features one of my fav heroes ever, Rook.  And GHOST WOLF continues the family Saint-Pierre series with Daisy-Blu (Kai and Rissa's daughter).

So what do you think about the new Nocturne format?


All Vamps All The Time

It was such a thrill to team up with these authors to create this anthology of some of our self-published vampire stories.  (It includes THE DARK'S MISTRESS by moi.)  We plan to feature this six-pack for only .99 cents for a very limited time.  Could be gone in a month!  Could be a week!  So grab it while you can.



Get WINDOW for .99!

Offer only good until Feb 17th.  Grab it from Amazon while you can.  It will not be on sale again!


Black Friday deal!

For one day only get WINDOW at Amazon for FREE!  Does it get any better than that?  I don't think so.
