Paper Hearts is out!

The next book in The Patterns & Parallels Saga is finally out. It’s available everywhere now and it’s also available in paperback! This book is shorter than the first because I kinda ran out of steam once I was done. Book three will probably be much longer though.

To see where it all started, you can check out the first book here:

Updates on current works:

TRA #3: 40K

Sugar Mountain Murders (PC): 33K

Ghosts #2: 27K

Cirque #2: 22K

Flavors of Love #3: 10K

P&P #3: 20K

Right now, I’m trying to tie up loose ends on Flavors #2 and get that ready for the editor on the 21st. Depending on when she gets it back to me, I should have this ready by November. I’m afraid I won’t be able to have this in time for SASS 😦 There is also one more PC book coming once I get the cover. Then that’s it for this year. No idea what book I will release first next year. The race is on!

Love,

Posting time

I realize I haven’t posted much lately and that’s because my depression has made me spiral a little. It’s sometimes very hard for me to post anything (or even do anything). I’m still keeping up with my writing though at times I am struggling. That’s why I haven’t talked much about anything. Things are also pretty slow on the audiobook front. Sweet Love was finally approved for retail but the link isn’t up yet. Four of the Usual Suspects is slowly but surely getting updated.

I will be ordering my books for SASS this weekend. Those who buy from me will get a special swag pack. This is the last call for pre orders!

Some good news. Patterns & Parallels #2 is up in a few places. You can check them out now.

In addition to that, P&P #1 will be free on Saturday and Sunday on Amazon. So if you’ve never read the series, you can check it out before it’s officially supposed to come out.

I also have book one out in Nook:

The updates for current books are slow but that’s the depression taking over. I will try to get back on track soon.

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.

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.

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!

https://www.createspace.com/5357356

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

Quick update

At long last, we’ve reached 50K on Patterns & Parallels #2! I just have a few loose ends to tie up and then it will be with the editor next month! It’s shorter than P&P#1 but still full of questions and mystery and adventure. We’re taking a deeper turn as things are revealed. The romance isn’t in this one as much as book one but we still have our scenes.

So here’s the schedule for this series:

Patterns and Parallels

#1 Hearts Under Ice https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RC5GO5Q

#2 Paper Hearts (coming late spring/early summer 2015)

#3 Heart of Metalia (coming in 2016)

Then there will be books 4-6, which are currently untitled. There might be seven books depending on how I feel later. These books are probably going to wrap up before the others fyi.

Also, I’m going to reveal more about my new project tonight at Kate Canterbury’s release party. If you’re there around 7 PM EST, you’ll see what I mean 😉
