Worlds Away

Good day!

Just a quick post to let you know I’ve finished a brand new book, in a brand new genre. There’s a rather substantial preview on here right now. I created a page for this preview specifically as it is so lengthy. I’ll warn you ahead of time that it ends on a cliffhanger, and the only way you’ll be able to read the rest is when it’s published, which should be soon.

So feel free to click on the tab above, labelled “Worlds Away”. Read on for a small description, and I hope you enjoy and come back to buy the book soon.

As always, take care and happy reading!

”She’s been on the run for years, never staying in one place too long. She thinks she’s safe, until the day a Raven and a Wolf show themselves. Now she’s running headlong back into the world she once knew, where things aren’t what they seem, not anymore. Politics and magic collide and she’s in danger from the moment she steps foot in the Autumn Kingdom. Her every breath is a violation of the world’s laws and she knows it, but she soon finds out there’s so much more at stake.
Kingdoms will clash, and corrupt, evil magic will show its face. Somehow she has to find a way to save them all, without losing herself to the fire in her veins.”

“Sugar and Ice” – Update

Hello!

I’m happy to report (so soon!) that my latest release, “Sugar and Ice”, is now available at all the usual retailers for purchase now. You can buy it at Amazon Kindle, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble Nook Book Store, Kobo Books, and at the iTunes book store. I hope you take the time to check it out, and maybe buy it! If you do, please leave a comment on whichever site you purchase it from. It’s wonderful support for an indie author like me, who can’t afford much in the way of traditional advertising.

As always, take care and happy reading!

New Feature – Sneak Peeks

Hello all. 😀

I’m going to try to make an effort to write more regularly on here. Not often, mind you, but in some sort of steady fashion. I make no promises! LOL. I am writing more than I was at this time last year, which is good, and I’ve been working on a few different things. When I say a few different things, I mean many.

I’m trying to edit and revise the fourth book in my TAITS series, I’ve been writing and restarting (many times) a sequel to Breaking Through the Ice, and I’m writing two or three other new stories, in new genres. It’s a bit crazy, trying to focus on one thing long enough to be productive but I enjoy it and I’m sure most writers would tell you that they have one or two things – at least! – on the go at any given time.

Also, as you may or may not know, I don’t really have a beta reader for a lot of things. I’m not complaining, it’s just the way it is. I can send things to a few different friends, but they have lives of their own and I don’t always get the immediate feedback I crave. And of course, it’s all about me! LOL.

In that spirit, I’ve decided to start a new feature on here. It’s a new tab (see above) called “Sneak Peeks”. From time-to-time, I will post small or large chunks of stories I’m working on. Some will be published, some might never be. Some might feature familiar names or places, and others will be entirely new. I hope you’ll take the time to read them over and tell me what you think.

Speaking of sharing thoughts… I want to take a moment to ask anybody out there who has read my published works to consider leaving a comment or rating on them. I’m an indie writer and I have no budget for advertising beyond what I do here or on Facebook. I can’t force anyone to leave comments or ratings and it’s the ONLY way to get the word out about my work. So please, if you’ve purchased something of mine from Amazon Kindle, Smashwords, the iTunes bookstore, Kobo Books or the Nook Book store, please go onto the website and leave a rating, and a comment. It doesn’t have to be a glowing review (though I would prefer not to be completely torn to shreds! 😉 ) but an honest review would be very much appreciated.

On that note, I’ll leave you now to enjoy the first sampling over under my “Sneak Peeks” tab. I hope everyone has recovered nicely from the holiday season and is sticking to their resolutions.

Take care, and happy reading.

Publication News!

I have exciting news to share. For the first time, I’ve written something brand new for publication. This story has never been posted on any website or forum before. It’s called “A Crack in the Ice” and is a sequel to “Uncovering the Ice”. See below for the book description.

cover page 1st draft

“After a year, Sean Bertrand, hockey player, and Vanessa Landon, erotica writer, are still blissfully in love. Things between them seem to be progressing just as they should. Until the unthinkable happens: Sean is traded to another team. Separated by thousands of miles and divided by miscommunication, their relationship starts to crumble. They need to find a way through this or their once serendipitous romance may finally have reached its breaking point.”

It’s currently only available for sale on Amazon Kindle and Smashwords. Hopefully it won’t take too long to be posted up at the iTunes bookstore and the Nook Book store as well, but as soon as I see them there, I’ll let you know.

Anyway, I hope you venture over to the websites to view the free sample downloads and perhaps that’ll be enough to inspire you to buy it. If you do buy it, please, I encourage everyone to leave an honest review on the websites. I have no other means of advertising and reviews mean everything. So please take the time to leave a review. It doesn’t have to be some long diatribe about what you liked or didn’t like, just a few words would be wonderful. Plus, I just like knowing if you enjoyed it or not. 🙂

Thank you again for following along. I have been rather absent of late, and I promise, it’s only because I’m spending all my spare time writing and editing. I hope everyone is doing well and surviving the start of the season of Big Eating. Anyone else od’d on candy and chocolate from Halloween? Me too!

As always, take care and happy reading!

Publication News!

I’ve got some big news to share. Well, sort of big. Well… It’s big news to me. 🙂

Anyway, if you’ve been a reader of my work for some time, you may remember a little story called “Uncovering the Ice.” It featured a writer named Vanessa, and the hockey player, named Sean, who emails her after reading one of her stories on-line.

At one time, I had this story published as part of an anthology called “Melting the Ice”, along with two stories by Eve McFadden. I’ve reworked it a bit, returning a lot of my original material from before that publication, and polished it up to offer as a stand-alone book! It’s now available to buy at the Amazon Kindle store. You can visit the website here. For now, it’s only available on Kindle. I’m working on getting it ready for sale on Smashwords, Nook Books, Kobo and the iTunes bookstores, and I’ll let you know as soon as it becomes available there.

If you buy it, or even if you remember it from before, please consider taking the time to leave a comment on the Amazon page. Comments and reader feedback is what we indie authors rely on to push our stories. Also, if you’re hemming and hawing over buying it, maybe this will convince you: at the end is a sneak preview of a forthcoming sequel to “Uncovering the Ice.” 😉

For those of you unfamiliar with the story, here’s the info:

cover page 2nd draft

Vanessa is a romance novelist but in her spare time, she indulges in her passion for hockey by penning hockey-themed erotica that she posts to an erotica website. When her hockey crush, Sean Bertrand, stumbles upon her stories and reacts negatively, she thinks he’s nothing but a crazy person. Their correspondence goes on and against the odds, they get to know each other, even like one another. But will the passion in Vanessa’s stories translate to real life or will the fantasy fall flat?

So now, I’ll leave you to enjoy the rest of your day, evening or whatever time of day you’re in. 🙂

Take care and happy reading!
