Finally, some updates!

Happy Halloween, everyone.

I apologize for my lack of updating last week. My grandmother passed away last Friday, then I had SASS, and now we have to deal with the wake. As a result, I have been extremely busy and I’ve had to push some things behind. I will try to get to everything this weekend. For those waiting on answers from me, I will get them to you. I promise.

First thing on the agenda, SASS is over and it was a fantastic time. It was just what needed especially after the sudden news. I enjoyed meeting everyone and I’m pretty much out of my swag now (save for lots of Lengths of Love bookmarks and postcards). Pictures will be coming soon. Let me get through the wake first and I promise things will be back to normal.

Second news, both Sweet Love and Four of the Usual Suspects are on Audible now! The latter is a short book so it will be great for those of you who take long trips or have a long commute during work. I’m also putting a link to both audiobooks so you can check them out. I also have free audiobook codes so if anyone wants one, drop me a line!

Sweet Love:

I have Halloween freebies! Since it is Halloween, how about two paranormal freebies? Both The Reaper’s Apprentices books are free on Kindle today and tomorrow. You can also get them from Smashwords as well.

Finally, the most important piece of news. I’ve started a new work HOWEVER it is not part of a series. This book is an erotica book, it’s standalone, and I will try to write it in a month. I will give details on it tomorrow. I wanted to do it for NaNo but the idea would not leave me alone so I started it early. Oops. Therefore, we may possibly have this out by December. However, there is no guarantee on that. If I can’t get it out by Christmas, the definitely by January.

Well, I’ve got to get back to writing. Do not worry. I’m still working on my other things. I hit 42K on the new PC book so there is that!

Ready for SaSS#15 and audiobook finally out!

Well, I’m all packed and ready for SaSS#15 tomorrow. Yes, I’m going in the morning since the town is only two hours away. I’m bringing Wrapped, Ghosts #1, The Contracts, Hearts Under Ice, Paper Hearts, Sweet Love, Cirque Macabre, and Lengths for Love with me. I left my Easter basket at work so I got a Halloween bucket instead and I’m raffling away a bunch of stuff in it; candy, two of my books, bookmarks, postcards, lip balms, other swag, and 3 free audiobooks for the winner.

I’m a little burned out as well because my grandmother passed away last night so it’s hard to be both excited and sad at the same time. I’m still coming though! It’s too late to back out now.

After what felt like eternity, Sweet Love’s audiobook is finally out!

That’s about it for now. I will have pictures tomorrow!

Links and brief update

don’t have a whole lot of new stuff at the moment. New audiobooks for Four of the Usual Suspects and Sweet Love should be coming out soon. Sweet Love had some audio issues so hopefully, once my producer fixes those, that will be out. However, we still have Wrapped in Death and Chocolate out! I will be bringing the paperbacks to SASS.

I still have a ton of free codes for the audiobook. If you want one, drop me a line! I’m like four away from a big celebration with the audiobooks now. If I can get just four more, I will celebrate that along with my Smashwords goal.

Time for some links!

Wrapped in Death and Chocolate now out on audio!

After long last, Wrapped in Death and Chocolate finally made it to audiobook. I have been waiting for a long time tbh. This is great because now those who like audiobooks can get this one! I could always use audiobook reviewers so if you’re interested, let me know.

I do apologize for all the links and the sudden news but when it rains, it doesn’t trickle. It pours. I will try to space everything out as much as I can.

A far better update on things

I have a lot to talk about over the next few days so please bear with me. This one will be a short, quick update. I’ll go into details later.

First off, Smashwords is being kinda hard to deal with regarding preorders so I’ve decided I won’t bring back The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 until September 14th. I’m sorry but it’s being a pain. You can still pre-order the book in other places. (Links for that a little later) I’ve also decided no more pre-order over there.

The second thing regarding Smashwords is that I’m close to a big milestone over there. If I reach it, I might do something big and special regarding it.

Third thing, I’m still waiting on Audible to get Wrapped in Death and Chocolate up for audio. It’s headed to retail now and I just have to wait. Waiting really is the hardest part. The audiobooks for Four of the Usual Suspects and Sweet Love are also coming along and sound great.

Fourth, upcoming releases.

The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 will be out on September 14th.

Black Paradise Circus #2 will be out September 28th.

Patterns & Parallels #3 will be out October 11th.

Flavors of Love #2 will be out either sometime late October or early November.

That will probably wrap up the new books for the year of 2015. I may or may not release another PC book in December but I’m not sure on that yet. ¬†One day soon, I will make a master list of every series and universe. it will be for the sake of readers and myself as well.

Finally, the main thing. Buy links!

The Reaper’s Apprentices #1 is on sale for 99 cents on Amazon. (Just posting one link for now)

https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/id1036924507

There’s no need to read book 1 to get book 2 but I do recommend it. Book 3 will come out next year and then the beginning arc will be over. Then we get into the bigger, good stuff.

New swag, updates, and more.

I promised I wasn’t going to update again so soon but a lot of stuff happened towards the end of the week. Go figure.
First off, I finally got TRA #2 back to me and sent to get formatted. It’s officially called The Reaper’s Apprentices #2: The Contracts. The release date is September14TH (cause one of the main characters is born on that day too) and I’ll have it up for pre-order as soon as it comes back from formatting. In the meantime, you can go ahead and add it to your libraries at Smashwords. I’ll probably fix the description too. It’s so hard to write this one’s description.
Secondly…Wrapped in Death and Chocolate’s audiobook is done! I’m just waiting for it to be approved. It’ll show up on the Amazon links. If you want to follow along or read the story ahead of time, you can get it here.

Third piece of news, I got a glimpse of the possible new cover to Patterns & Parallels #2 and it looks just as great! P&P #2 goes to the editor on the 8th. Hopefully, I can get swag for it before SASS.
Fourth and final piece of news…here are pics of new swag! Thanks to Kelli’s Kollectables and Sweet Book Swag for them! I can’t wait to my hands on them! ¬†The hand sanitzer and lotions came this afternoon and I know the others are on the way. Then I’ll probably make something for P&P #2, the Black Paradise Circus arc, and Four of the Usual Suspects and that’ll be it.
