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)

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.

Pre-order for The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 is live!

I have a lot of news to spread and I’ll do so over the next few days. Right now, I want to mention the main thing and that is that The Reaper’s Apprentices #2: The Contracts is now live for pre-order almost everywhere! Not only that, it is available for 99 cents! That’s a good deal to get before it releases on September 14th!

Here are the Amazon links (a few for now):

http://www.amazon.au/gp/product/B014U5M5F8?*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Not only that, it’s available for pre-order in other places for 99 cents or so (except B&N is still 2.99 for some reason). You can set price at SW to reflect what you want. In some cases, I’m not sure why there are two places these are up at. Oh well.

Cover reveal and updates

The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 is now in the editor’s  hands. Later this week, I will have the cover for the first book updated and I’ll reveal the second book’s cover next week.

It’s also cover reveal day for the new Black Paradise Circus book! There are three in total and this is number 2! The thanks go to pro_ebook covers!

I finally got the epub of Wrapped in Death and Chocolate done! Not only that, it’s up on Smashwords now! It took long enough but it’s there now. Hopefully, it’ll come up everywhere else as well.

I’m also planning the next couple of signings so be on the lookout for those!

Will be back later,

New audiobook in works and short updates/sales

Well, Sweet Love is also going to be turned into an audiobook. So that means I’ll have about four audiobooks; Into the Limelight, Wrapped in Death and Chocolate, Four of the Usual Suspects, and Sweet Love.

I’m two sales away from reaching a milestone at Smashwords. If I hit it, I might do something special. *wink*

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

Since I still have free audible codes for Into the Limelight, here’s three for anyone who wants them; first come, first serve.

  1. MCFC5MBTJQZZB
  2. BAZWSRBYDJDQK
  3. E4B54J5Y8J87J

Well, everything is set with the editor so I’ll be sending The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 and Patterns & Parallels #2 to them (either that or Black Paradise Circus #2). I need to update The Reaper’s Apprentices #1 cover but my designer is on vacation.

In any case, The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 is coming up next either later August or early September. The series is a paranormal romance or at least it will lead to it. I do recommend reading book 1 first. If you read book 2, you’ll still get it but book 1 sets things up. It’s the girls’ story whereas book 2 is the guys’ story. It’s now up on the other places too like Barnes & Noble so if you read on Nooks, now you can read this!

I also need to order some more swag, which I’m lagging on. I’m getting the formatting updated on Wrapped in Death and Chocolate right now. I’m so behind on everything and Sassy in the South is in October. Go figure. That usually happens right before.

Updates on current books:

Flavors of Love #2: 34K (most likely the next book to be finished and out in winter)

Cirque Macabre #2: 13K

Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 15K

New PC book: 11K

TRA #3: 5K

Hopefully, this weekend will lead to some updates.

Just a slight update on things

It’s about time I actually made a real update on things. I know I’ve spent a lot of this last week promoting Sweet Love and I apologize if it is clogging up your pages. I swear I will dial it down this week. I actually had no idea this would be ready and finished so soon. As you guess, my plans for when these books come out has flipped around.

Here’s how the new list for 2015 looks:

Sweet Love – June 9th

PC BlacK Paradise Circus #1 – sometime this month. I’m not sure exactly when but it’s almost ready. I don’t know if I want to set it for pre-order or release it straight out the gate either.

TRA #2 – sometime either late August or early September

P&P #2 – ditto. I know I said this would be out in the summer but it probably won’t be

* This book won’t be out for Greenville’s signing but the next PC book, Wrecked Art Poisonous Words, will probably come out in December if I’m lucky. It’s edited, it just needs everything else. If not December, then January for sure.

This is what’s most likely coming in 2016:

PC Black Paradise Circus #2

TRA #3

OG #2

Cirque Macabre #2

Flavors of Love: Love on Board

Now none of it is set in stone. A lot can happen and change in a year. We see that already with the line up of books for this year. Everything flipped around and it can happen again.
As you can see, most of these are sequels to the first books. If you’ve never read some of the first books, I do recommend it. (Though it is not required). Here are the first books for the ones coming out this year:

TRA #1

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00IUY4KMC?*Version*=1&*entries*=0

P&P #1

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RC5GO5Q?*Version*=1&*entries*=0

PC(not really a sequel but it’ll introduce you to the characters)

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00V93QGCI?*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Sweet Love

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00YQA1UDG?*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Now on Kobo too!

(ETA: I apologize for how these links came out. I blame all the hyperlinks.

One late note: book signings. This year, there is only Greenville, which is fine with me. It’s close to home. For next year, nothing set in stone in those yet but I have a few places I’m considering including Boston, Norfolk, and Dallas.

There’s a cover reveal at the end of this week for Black Paradise Circus #1. Be on the look out for that!

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

Master post of books

I’m just making this post for my own benefit and for any newbies that don’t know my work. This is actually for the list of series and/or books in the same world. I’m only putting links to the ones that are published on Amazon. This is also a list of books and when their sequels are most likely coming out. I need to get myself organized.
