Tantalizing Tuesdays!!!!

I'm joining in with a blog hop which includes several other authors all of us teasing and tantalizing you with little bits from our latest or current works!

This week I'm teasing my current WIP - Tempting the Domme!


Never taking his eyes away from hers, he took one last drink from his beer bottle and then reached out and placed it on the coffee table.  Then he got down on his knees and started to crawl.  
He wasn't graceful.  He wasn't quick.  And he wasn't entirely happy about it. 
But he was crawling.
Olivia's heart rate picked up as she watched him coming.  Before he reached her, she put her own half-finished wine glass on the end table next to her chair, wanting both hands free for to touch him.  After all, he deserved a reward.  And watching this confident, reluctant man get on his hands and knees at her demand was making her hot.  
"Good cupcake," she murmured when he reached her, sliding her fingers into his hair and tipping his head back as he knelt the way he'd been shown in class, just in front of her chair.  Hands on his thighs, knees spread apart, and close enough to her chair that she didn't have to lean forward much.  She saw the surprise and appreciation in his eyes before she lowered her lips to his for a hot kiss. 
very hot kiss.

Tempting the Domme releases on February 14th and is the seventh book in the Stronghold Doms series (and is the first and only Domme book in the series!). Don't forget, The Sassy Submissive, the first book in the series, is FREE on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, and others!

Happy New Year!!!! 2018 Resolutions!

I have SO many resolutions coming up this year but they all branch out from one main one:

Be in a position to be a full time author by the end of the year!

I've already started working towards that the past two months, but this year I am super buckling down HARD.  There's a LOT going on because of that!

First of all - Lee Savino has become either my Author-Domme or Author-Sensei, it's hard to tell which ;)  She's super awesome though and if I do manage to fulfill my resolution, it will definitely be because of her!

So, I have put together an EXTREMELY ambitious book release schedule for this year, which I'll post at the end of this blog.  I'll also post the LATEST the audio books will be coming out this year (some may come out earlier, it all depends on the narrators, but the release dates I'm posting are based on when the final product is due to be finished.  Some of them are definitely early birds, some of them keep recording up until the last minute!). I have no idea if I will actually be able to keep to this book schedule but... we'll see.  I'm trying to focus more on my book writing this year and be super organized about it.

I am also not going to be writing as much for Literotica this year.  I love the site, but the number of serials which I'm putting out for free are not going to help my goal.  So I'll be writing a short, sexy story once a month for Lit but no serials for at least this year (I just don't have the time =/)

However, I WILL still be writing erotic serials, but they'll be available exclusively through Radish .  Radish is an app for your phone that's a lot like Lit except it was specifically designed for people to read on their phones, and it has everything from free serials to "premium" serials.  The first three chapters of EVERY kind of serial is free, but the premium serials cost three Radish coins per chapter after that (and Radish coins are pretty cheap).  The majority of exclusive content I release on Radish this year is going to fall into the "Freemium" category - which means the entire story will be posted and each week a new chapter will be made available for free.  If you can't wait a week for the next free chapter, you can choose to go ahead and spend your Radish coins on reading the chapters before they become free. I will have some Premium stories as well, but the vast majority will be Freemium.

Also, in addition to the release list below, at some point I'm also going to try and release a trilogy of Sci-Fi BDSM on my own... I just haven't figured out for sure that I'm doing it or when.  So yeah.  That.  Oh, and Marriage Training is still going through the agent so waiting to see if anything will happen with that this year... if it doesn't I'm gonna pull it from the agent and it'll be the first thing I publish in 2019.

ANYWAY.  Here's the regular book schedule I'm going to attempt (with a couple of blurbs to peak your interest!)

***January 20th*** - Dark Angel Tales (Dark Angel Penname) - Available for Pre-order Now!

The tales will include some of Dark Angel's darkest Literotica works, now edited and compiled together, as well as a new short story exclusively available as part of the Tales.

Included:

- Being the Maid
- The Truth Will Set You Free
- A Rough Sorority Rite
- Gentleman's Maid (with a final chapter not available on Lit!)

New Bonus Story:

- Prison Sentence

***February*** Tempting the Domme

Luke Evans is a strong, confident, commanding man who happens to really like a bossy woman in the bedroom, so it's no surprise when he's immediately drawn to Stronghold's bossiest bad ass Domme, Olivia Williams.  Unfortunately for him, while he's just Olivia's type in a lot of ways, she's not happy that he's in a position of professional power over her, a decision she was not privy to when it was made.  She's determined not to mix business with pleasure, no matter how appealing putting Luke Evans on his knees in front of her would be.  But Luke's just as much a go-getter as Olivia and he's perfectly happy to join the class of new submissives in order to show her just how far he's willing to go.

When it becomes clear Olivia has attracted the attention of someone else - and not in a good way - the tension among the entire Stronghold group goes through the roof and Luke can't help but feel protective no matter how Olivia resists him.

With two strong personalities both used to winning, who will come out on top in the end?

***March*** - Night of the Wild Stags - A Reverse Harem Novella

Spin-off novella from the Big Bad Bunnies series about a herd of male reindeer rescuing a sick pudu doe shifter and keeping her for their own.

***April 1*** - Big Bad Bunnies Book #3 (title TBD)

It's Brock and Doc's turn for some romance!  Can a grumpy mutant bunny shifter who hates all things science and medical (with good reason) ever find a happily-ever-after with a stubbornly bubbly doctor and lover of all things Disney?

***May*** - Arabella's Taming

The final book in the Bridal Discipline Series!

Lady Arabella Windham, sister to the Duke of Manchester, has given up on ever attracting the positive attention of Lord Thomas Hood.  After discovering he still sees her as the same reckless, hoydenish young woman she was in the past, no matter her current perfectly ladylike behavior, and realizes she will never match up to his infamous list of attributes for a wife, she throws caution to the wind.  

Why bother being good if it's not going to even be noticed, much less acknowledged?  

When her return to feckless and indiscreet behavior results in disgrace however, it's Lord Thomas Hood who is caught up in the scandal with her.  With a resentful and strong-willed bride and a stubborn lord determined to curb his new wife's imprudent ways, is a happily-ever-after even possible?

***June*** - His Captive Bride w Lee Savino

The first book in the co-written Tsenturion Alien Warrior trilogy with Lee Savino!   

***July*** - Tsenturion #2 w Lee Savino

***August*** - Tsenturion #3 w Lee Savino

***September*** - Hardcore Vanilla

The final book in the Stronghold Doms Series!

When Jake Standish returned from Iraq, getting back into civilian life wasn't easy but he's managing.  His group of friends help a lot, even if they are a bunch of kinky bastards and even if the most annoying woman in the world also spends all her time with them.  After seeing his friends injured and killed, and the poverty and hardship of life on the other side of the world, the overly bubbly trust fund baby without a care in the world grates on him.  She's the kind of girl he could never bring home to his parents; she's crass, curses way too much, gives everyone ridiculous nicknames, and literally throws money at any problem she doesn't want to deal with.  The problem is, the more he spends time around her, the more he finds her amusing instead of obnoxious and the more his dick wants to override his objections to her presence.

"I learned how to look cheerful while, under the table, I stuck a fork into the back of my hand. I became a virtuoso of deceit."  That line from Dangerous Liasons pretty much summed up Sharon's life before she finally turned eighteen and was able to escape the repressive, fake, shallow, and coldly demanding home she'd grown up in.  Fortunately, the trust fund her grandmother had left her provided her with a college education, no need to work unless she wants to, and gorgeous residences.  She knows how lucky she is, but she feels far luckier to have found a group of friends who don't give a shit about her money and just love her for herself.  Life would be better without her friend Lexie's big brother Jake constantly giving her the side-eye, but she's getting used to Grumpy Captain America's presence - and it's kinda fun to mess with him.  

But when she wakes up in his bed on New Year's Day, well... the fireworks from the night before are nothing compared to what's next.

***October*** - Vampire Book

First book in Angel's new Vampire Trilogy about Gwen, the vampire girl next door who just wants to use her superpowers for good as a member of the Vampire Guard and have a nice, simple everlasting life.  Unfortunately, when she finds two newborns tormenting a human and obviously about to make a kill - which is a big no-no in vampire-land these days - things start to get complicated the minute she recognizes her human ex boyfriend as their victim, and then her only lover since being turned (and Captain of the Guard) shows up too and everything pretty much starts going downhill from there. 

***November*** - Second Vampire Book

***December*** - Third Vampire Book & (*possibly*) Another Big Bad Bunnies book!

Thankfulness, Free Stuff, and Audio Books

I am thankful for so many things this year.  My hubby, my friends, my family, and my readers!!!!!

This has been an AMAZING year for me as an author and I'm really looking forward to the future.  For the first time I'm starting to hope that becoming a full-time author is within my reach within a couple of years (good news for everyone, since that also means I'd presumably have more time to write! =)  This is in large part thanks to Lee Savino, a fantastic author and an amazing person, and if you haven't read her books you should definitely check her out.  I'll be part of her and Renee Rose's Facebook release party for their new addition to the Bad Boy Alphas series, Alpha's Challenge, in The L. Woods PR Romance Room the evening of December 3 (make sure to check out the previous books in the series, all available on Kindle Unlimited!).  So come join us for all sorts of giveaways and introductions to awesome authors that evening!  And it's just a good group to join in general because there's almost always something going on =)  My time slot is 9:30 pm - December 3. Remember it ;)

Other things to know!  There's so much.  LOL.

FREE THINGS:

If you haven't already signed up for my newsletter, do it now!  You'll get a free story immediately (Will & Gina's story, formerly part of Pieces of Stronghold but now only available through the newsletter) in the welcome email and I'm going to be focusing on making my newsletter better this upcoming year and using it for more giveaways and things like that.  In December I'm going to have a lot of giveaways going on for the holidays, so you definitely want to get in on that!

I now have perma-free books!  Birching His Bride, the first book in the Bridal Discipline Quartet is now free, as is Stronghold, the first book in the Stronghold Doms series (and Stronghold is going to be getting a face lift in a couple weeks with a new cover and title - His Sassy Submissive).  So tell your friends - free books!

KINDLE UNLIMITED

As part of my move to become a full time author eventually, a lot of my books are going to be moving to Kindle Unlimited.  Smashwords and Nook unfortunately just don't have enough readership of my stuff and I'll be able to make the move to full time authoress a lot sooner the more I move into KU.  So far, the Venus Rising Quartet, Big Bad Bunnies, and the majority of Stronghold Doms books have been moved to KU.

I will still publish new books on Smashwords and Nook, however some of them will not remain on those platforms for very long after publication.  The Victorian series actually do fairly well on those platforms, so those are going to remain published everywhere for now.

But for other series, new Big Bad Bunny books will only remain on those platforms for a month before being moved to KU.  Stronghold Dom books will have the two most recent books available on all platforms, but each time a new book comes out the least recent book not on KU will be moved to KU (so when Tempting the Domme comes out, Bound to the Past will move to KU, etc.).

HOW TO GET MORE FREE STUFF

Some things will be made available just through the newsletter, but I've also started a Facebook group - the Angel Legion Lair - where we have discussions, giveaways, and it's easy to stay up-to-date with the latest of what's going on (even easier than following my Facebook page, because Facebook will notify you when something is posted to the group - unlike with my page which follows Facebook algorithms and so people have missed important posts because of that :( ).  The newsletter is only sent out once a month so the Facebook group is usually going to be the first to know what's going on.

AUDIO BOOKS

That's right!  I'm branching out into audio books!  So far there are three available -

The Venus School
Venus Aspiring
Chasing His Bunny

Birching His Bride has been approved (by me) and is currently going through Amazon's review process, which can take up to two weeks, so it should be out within the next couple weeks!

If you don't yet have Audible and you're tempted to get it - you can get any one of my three books for free when you sign up for a trial through them!  Click on any of THESE links and it will take you to sign up for the free 30 day trial and download the book for free so you can see if you like it or not.   And either way, you still get to listen to one of the books for free!

The Venus School
Venus Aspiring
Chasing His Bunny

Audible also says it's soon going to be starting a romance audio book program, basically Kindle Unlimited for Audible, and all of my books will also be enrolled in that as they come out.

Chasing His Squirrel should be out by the end of this year as well, and Philip's Rules, Undisciplined, Gabrielle's Discipline, Venus Desiring, Venus Transcendent, Stronghold, Taming the Tease, Annie & the Sybian, Dealing with Discipline, Punishing His Ward, and Claiming His Wife will all come out in audio book next year.  There may be more, but those are all the ones currently in production and which will definitely be released in 2018.

LITEROTICA

The Literotica Authors Go West event released its stories today!  I'm in there with Mail Order Menage =)  It's just a fun little themed thing - check out all the stories and enjoy!

Chapter 21 of Taken by the Viking has also been submitted and, according to my Lit author board, will release tomorrow!

******

So that's what's going on!  I know it's a lot.  And I'm so thankful for all my readers who have helped to get me to this place!

If you have any suggestions for things you'd like me to do for next year, just comment and let me know!  And don't miss out on any giveaways next month - sign up for my newsletter or join my facebook group (or both for multiple chances to win!).

Happy Thanksgiving!  And thank you all so much for reading!!!!

Want a Free Copy of Arabella's Taming?

Okay, who's ready to be bribed?!

Benedict's Commands needs more reviews =)  And I like to give free things to those who help me.

I'm also probably going to do some kind of giveaway around Christmas, so keep an eye out for that!  (maybe even before because I have some audiobooks coming out soon!!!!!!!)

Saturday, October 28, 2017

Release Day & Other News!

There's a lot going on!

First of all, I'm back on Literotica finishing up TbtV!  Chapter 20 was released this past week =)  I'm about to go out of town and won't be back for a week, but after that my main focus is going to be finishing the series before Thanksgiving.  WOOT!

Also coming out before Thanksgiving will be a story that's part of the Literotica Writers Go West event =)  I'm gonna try my hand at a cowboy story!  Mail-order bride to be specific.  If it goes well, I may end up writing a few mail-order books.  I like using Literotica as a testing ground.

I've got quite a few books in to become audiobooks and they're coming along very nicely!!!  Venus Aspiring and Chasing His Bunny should both be out in early November =)

But the really big news - of course - Benedict's Commands is now available on all platforms!

Amazon        Barnes & Noble        Smashwords


Love? Marriage? Lady Christina Rowan, Dowager-Marchesse of Stanhope, doesn't think so. She avoids both heavy emotions and heavy commitments, and has ever since she discovered the truth behind her first husband's death. As a widow she's found freedom in having lovers without love. When she began to have feelings for her current lover, Benedict Windham, brother to the Duke of Manchester, she immediately cuts him loose before she can become too attached.

Or so she thought.

Time away from Christina has made Benedict realize how deep his own feelings for her run; not only is she the most exciting lover he's ever had, he's actually fallen in love with her. So when he returns to London for the Season, he's determined to court his former lover and turn her into his wife. 

This book contains spanking, BDSM, an alpha male, an amorous but emotionally reluctant heroine, and a lot of naughty, scandalous fun.
