Pleasures, Updates, and Ballerina Ken

A couple of weeks ago, I started the process of updating my freebie short stories. The stories aren't changing, but I'm updating the look and making them available in more formats and from more places. I started with Pleasures of Somerville Park, the short story sequel to Object of His Desire.

Lou Harper of Harper by Design created a gorgeous new cover. *love it* The book is now available in multiple formats (epub, mobi, pdf, etc) from Smashwords as a free download. It should soon be available from Barnes and Noble as well. I updated the version on All Romance eBooks, and now epub, mobi and palm versions are available there in addition to pdf. Oh, and it's currently on Amazon, but it's $0.99 right now. 

Later this week, I am going to work on updating the Bound freebies (Deliberately Unbound and Deliberately Bound).

Chris over at Stumbling Over Chaos has a giveaway going for The Brook Street Collection (contains Thief, Fortune Hunter, and Rogues). Contest open until 7pm CST on Thursday, March 14.

In other news, Riptide has reduced the price on O Come All Ye Kinky, the holiday anthology that contains my short story 'Twas the Night. It's now $7.99 everywhere. 

In writing news, I'm nearing completion on All In With the Duke. Crossed the 65,000 word mark, and I have 2 chapters left (if all goes as planned). My deadline is 4/1, but I have a feeling I'll have it done a tad early.

And look who came home with me last weekend! Target was Ken-doll heaven - they had a new Ryan, a ballerina Ken, and a Jasper from Twilight. I went with the Ballerina Ken - he has awesome boots, is wearing tights, and has nice hair. How could he not come home with me?

  3. What a fabulous new cover for your story. I'm reading "Object fo His Desire" right now, and I'm enjoying it so much. I do have the freebie already, but I'll have to remember to DL it with the new cover & in Kindle format.

  4. I just discovered you this past week, and I have become OBSESSED with your stories. I read the Brook Street trilogy in 2 days, and just purchased 3 more of your books from Amazon. I love your writing style and I seem to have developed a connection with your characters and I feel just so... good... getting to 'know' them. I probably sound like a sap, but your books really move me, and your writing style is consistent. THANKS!!!

    1. Aw, thanks so much! And no, you don't sound like a sap. It makes me smile to hear you can connect with the characters and that you enjoy getting to know them. It's really the highest praise an author can receive. :) You've made my day.
