I do hope I’m not jinxing myself with this, but it does look like my next book, Her Stepbrother’s Bride, will be released on August 16th!
I was awakened much earlier than planned this morning by the menagerie inquiring as to if and when we (meaning I) ever planned to feed them. This was not particularly enjoyable, but has done wonders for my productivity, or at least it did once I’d had my coffee and was coherent enough to string words together. So I’ve been busy writing.
I’m somewhat reluctant to announce release dates for work in progress, since that’s just a perfect way to ensure that something will come up and I will end up being delayed. So, I will simply state that it is my intention to release Her Stepbrother’s Bride on August 16. I then hope to release the extended, full-length story shortly thereafter.
If you’ve missed that bit of news, here is what is happening. Many of my fellow novella writers combine their related work into omnibus editions and release that for sale. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that approach, I’ve done it myself. But to be perfectly honest, beyond the convenience of having all installments in one book, there’s not much in it for those who have already read each installment of a series.
I want to try something different this time. I am taking the four installments of the Seduced by her Stepbrother series, adding brand-new content to expand and enlarge on the story, and will release it as a full-length work. It will be available for purchase and on Kindle Unlimited as well. There’s value in this for both the reader and the writer. Readers will be given significant new content to enjoy, not just 10,000 words worth of filler and I get to flesh out this story in a way that the novella format doesn’t permit. We all gain 🙂
As always, I will announce the release on my mailing list
Also, today is the final day of the Countdown Deal for Seduced by her Stepbrother. You can get the first installment of this series for just $0,99! http://amzn.to/1SLCBjD
The “final installment” in my Seduced by her Stepbrother Series is titled, “Her Stepbrother’s Bride” and will be released soon.
While this is the final novella, it’s actually not the end of the story! I am expanding the story, including significant additional scenes (back story and of course romance!) and will release the whole thing as a full-length work early this fall.
I’ll announce the releases here, but if you want advanced notice, sign up for my mailing list 🙂
Love and kisses,

I was looking at my Goodreads Author Page today. I must confess, I don’t pay very close attention to it, using the account more to lurk than anything. But today, I did notice I had reviews on there I wasn’t aware of until now. Most were quite positive, which is nice.
I know many of my fellow authors worry about reviews. How to get them, how to deal with negative reviews, and so on. I really don’t worry about them that much. My work consists of novellas written in the erotic romance genre. They’re meant to provide a quick, entertaining read and are hardly profound works of art, so really, I don’t expect lots of reviews. Plus, not that many people are eager to attach their names to a review of any kind of erotic fiction, so I’m quite grateful for the reviews I do get on Goodreads and on Amazon. I did have one “meh” review on Amazon, but the reviewer was careful to say it was because it just wasn’t their cup of tea. Which was quite thoughtful of that person, I think!
