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!

Hello all.

Just a quick note today to let everyone know that “Uncovering the Ice” is now available for sale on Smashwords, in all the different ebook formats. I’m not sure how long it’ll take to go up at Kobo Books, Nook Books or in the iTunes book store, but as soon as I know, I’ll post that news as well.

For now though, you can buy any format through the Smashwords store. The link it on the right side of my blog page, or you can simply visit the website, at http://www.smashwords.com.

I also want to take a moment to thank all those who have purchased it so far on Amazon Kindle. I hadn’t been watching the stats but recently checked it out and was pleased to see the number of sales. Thank you so much for your support and interest! If you have purchased it through the Kindle store, please consider taking a moment to write/post a review on the website. For indie authors like myself, the only way we encourage sales is by word of mouth. If you liked the book and want to recommend it, please do that as well. Every little bit counts.

For now, I’m hard at work on a couple of other projects. I’m finishing up my initial draft of the forthcoming sequel to the aforementioned “Uncovering the Ice.” I’m hoping to have that done and edited within a few months but I can’t make any promises on timelines. I’m also working on editing and revising “Duty and Deception,” the fourth book in my adventure/spy series, known as TAITS. And finally, I’m working on something entirely new and exciting and possibly the longest novel I’ll ever have written – assuming, of course, I ever get through it!

I hope everyone is having a nice summer and if the kids are back in school, I hope the leap back into the school year wasn’t too stressful.

Take care and happy reading!

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!
