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!

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!

Updates and new book released on Smashwords!

Well, I got Black Paradise Circus #2 back and decided to go ahead and upload it on Smashwords. It’s up now and 99 cents! You can still get Black Paradise Circus #1 as well. It is a Portman’s Creamery book, just a different kind. Rather than focusing on one girl, it focuses on the group and the cases are longer.

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/576230

Updates to current works:

Flavors of Love #2: 52K

Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 24K

Portman’s Creamery #3: 19K

Patterns & Parallels #3: 12K

The Reaper’s Apprentices #3: 23K

Cirque Macabre #2: 16K

Flavors of Love #2 is most likely next to be released along with a different PC book. I’m also awaiting some more swag and will get paperback formatting for some of the books soon. I do need to know if anyone plans to preorder. I’m planning on putting together a nice basket to anyone that buys a book (either early or at the signing). I’ve got loads of nice stuff now. I do need to know so I can order certain books. I won’t be bringing everything or a whole ton of them.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1P1Xdy17IGjCOwUs-kVXBn6yAtrspP8Q5pJfzb3XF0eE/viewform

Speaking of new stuff, I have new stuff soon! Preorder links to both books. They are 99 cents or free on KU.

Updates again

I was going to update yesterday but I realize that I’ve been updating on Monday nights for the last few weeks (don’t ask why my calender has them marked under Tuesday. I think it’s further ahead than I am). Anyway, some minor updates to mention.

First, I have finally gotten around to ordering more swag for SASS. In addition to my poker chips, postcards, and magnets, I shall have more chapstick along with new things like hand lotion, hand sanitzer, and…this may excite you…condoms. The latter is not official yet but it might be. Yes, they’ll be representing the Flavors of Love series. So now almost everything has swag for it except The Black Paradise Circus series (unless you want to count Portman’s Creamery with it cause it is a longer mystery with the PC girls).

Secondly, I’m waiting on my cover for Patterns & Parallels #2: Paper Hearts. I forgot how much I like being in the P&P universe (or universes) sometimes. I think that may be why I went back to it this weekend. Now that I’ve started the third book, it’s forming into something big. The first one is available online for only 2.99.

Patterns & Parallels #1:

Third, audiobooks will be out soon and I’ll be needing people listening and reviewing. If you are interested in that, please drop me a line. I’ll send you an audible code so you can get them for free. At the moment, only Ghosts of Burning Inn #1 has an audiobook to it but Wrapped in Death and Chocolate, Four of the Usual Suspects, and Sweet Love will be coming soon too.

Fourth, I’m coming close to hitting a milestone at Smashwords! Just 15 more to go! Here’s my profile over there in case you never saw it.

https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/CyberLeonardo

Updates on works:

Flavors of Love #2: 42K

Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 20K (stopped this for now)

Cirque Macabre #2: 15K

Portman’s Creamery #3: 15K

The Reaper’s Apprentices #3: 14K

Patterns & Parallels #3: 7K

Operation: Genome #3: 22K

Operation: Genome #4: 38K

(Don’t asky why OG #4 is further ahead than #3)

Now I should probably get back to writing.

Short update

Well, I got the first fifteen minutes of Wrapped in Death and Chocolate’s audiobook and it sounds fab! I’m still waiting for Ghosts of Burning Inn to go into retail now. It’s been approved; now it’s just another waiting game.

I have also finished Black Paradise Circus #2 tonight. I might add bits and pieces but the book is pretty much wrapped up now. I won’t start book #3 (the conclusion) until a little later. Book 1 is still on sale on Amazon. I do recommend reading 1 before starting 2. It’s not that you’ll be lost but it’s better if you read from the beginning (I actually recommend that for pretty much everything except the Portman’s Creamery series. Those are pretty random)

Books I’m working on now:

Flavors of Love #2: 17K

Cirque Macabre #2: 7K

Patterns & Parallels #3: 1K (just started tonight)

I’ve also got some PC books in the works but they have no real deadline right now. I think I might go back to Ghosts of Burning Inn #2 next.

If you would like a paperback from me (ignore the signing part. This is for pb’s in general), please fill out this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1P1Xdy17IGjCOwUs-kVXBn6yAtrspP8Q5pJfzb3XF0eE/viewform

I do need to know how much I need to have in stock. I’ll be ordering stuff in the next few days soon.

Better update later,

Actual updates!

I know I’ve posted mostly teasers over here (and I’m still trying to make some more). However, I think I owe everyone some actual updates as well. Let me bold some of the important stuff.

First, tickets are now on sale for SASS in October! 

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/sexy-and-sassy-signing-sass-tickets-15468647140

updateson current works:

Patterns & Parallels #2 is finished and sitting at about 51K. Will go to the editor on the 16th. It’s shorter than book one and is centered more on Olivia’s side of the story. Book #3 will be more centered on Donnie’s. Speaking of Book #3, I’m thinking about starting that as soon as I finish TRA #2 and get further on Sweet Love.

Black Paradise Circus #1 is finished and sitting at 52K. I will send it to the editor on the 23rd. Judging from what I’ve got, this book may come out before P&P#2. The reason for that is because I have the cover and secured an editor and just need a formatter now for this book. I still don’t have the cover for P&P#2 yet. I said their due dates are sometime in late June but it might be earlier.

The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 is at 43K right now and I want to go a little further on it tonight.

Sweet Love is at 24K. I got a lot done on this one over the weekend. Once I get to 30K, I will reveal the plot behind it. Yes, the erotica does have a plot but I do promise you sex as well.

Paperback is available for Four of the Usual Suspects!

To celebrate the upcoming sequel, P&P #1 is free on Amazon for the next few days. Get it to get an understand of how things started!  

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RC5GO5Q

(ETA: Sorry about the messy links. I have no idea what happened)

Next weekend may not be a great writing weekend. I have plans then but I will do my best. Work will be hectic so I will need to escape to the writing hole in the evening.

Much love,

~C

Updates and so forth

All right, I’ve got a few things I need to mention.

1) The tickets for Sassy in the South go on sale this Friday! If I recall correctly, there will be only 150 VIP tickets sold so get those while you can! Regular tickets, there will be a lot of. I’ll have the site where you can buy and information on that in my next update post. Also to note, that Friday I will have an author takeover on Facebook at the signing page. Again, more info coming on my next update here.

2) So I’ve more or less finished two books in a month. Wow. It’s safe to say that Patterns & Parallels #2: Paper Hearts and Portman Creameries Cases: Black Paradise Circus #1 (kind of a subdivision of the PC series) will be out sometime this summer. The Reaper’s Apprentices #2: The Contracts currently sits at 42K but that is slowly getting wrapped up too. That just leaves me one other book. Sweet Love, the first in the erotica series Flavors of Love, is sitting at 13K right now.

3) I’ll be doing a cover reveal of Black Paradise Circus #1 sometime in June. I’ve already secured an editor and will secure my formatter a little later. From the looks of it, that may come out before P&P #2. We’ll see how things go.

4) In the meantime, Four of the Usual Suspects is now available on Smashwords! All they say it’s in review, you should be able to get it if you’re fans of Smashwords.

https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/538917

It’s still out there on Amazon for Kindle and paperback too.

5) For the signing, I’m already planning on bringing three of the PC books, P&P 1 & 2, and if they are out, TRA #2 and Flavors of Love. Probably Ghosts of Burning Inn too. I’ll do a google doc for anyone who wants me to bring something else in the process.

6) My workload is going to pile up but I will survive! Once I finish up TRA #2 and get to a good spot on Flavors of Love, I will start Patterns & Parallels #3 and (at long last) Cirque Macabre #2. I know. It’s been a long time since that one has had an update, right?

Much love,

~C
