Pre-order: STRAY CAT STRUT

Well, it’s been a year and a half (I am sorry to fans of this series) but the third Cats & Conjure novella, Stray Cat Strut, is now up for pre-order.

It releases September 18, 2015. Once again it’s around 100 pages, the length of the others. And yes, it has another cliffhanger, although a huge part of the main plot is resolved in this one. Addie and Erik will be back in the fourth novella, Alley Cat, which will likely release early next year. This series unfortunately isn’t a big seller for me and needs all the support it can get–if you like the novellas, please consider leaving them a review and/or telling a friend (and for God’s sake, stop pirating them if you would like them to release faster).

Cats in Heat and Cat Scratch Fever will both be on sale for 99c each for the month leading up to Stray Cat Strut‘s release, so if you haven’t started reading these books, you can wait until then and get them really cheap.

If you HAVE read the series and need a recap, I’ll be offering that for download on my blog when Stray Cat Strut releases.

Here are the details:

StrayCatStrut-Kindle

Adelaide Deveraux has escaped her enemy’s compound along with her tiger-shifter lover, Erik Wells, but the home that had once been her sanctuary is now gone, burned to the ground and leaving them with no choice but to go on the run.

At least Erik knows a thing or two about running; he’s been doing it for most of his life, and he’s determined to keep Addie safe. Between their handful of allies and Addie’s growing magic, he thinks they just might have enough resources to survive, and, for the first time in his life, sees a future for himself and the woman he loves.

But the powerful sorcerer on their tail has more than owning Addie in his sights. Now he’s also out for revenge and not everyone will make it out alive…

New Site + New(ish) Releases

If you’re a regular visitor, you may have noticed things are a bit different. I’m no longer at blogspot but have a new website. All the previous posts have been copied over. There are still some kinks to work out but this is it! I hope you like it and find it easy to navigate; I’m quite pleased with it.

My newest release came out a few weeks ago–a full-length novel called THE BOOK OF LOVE about a cranky divorced romance writer and his determined new editor. It was a lot of fun to write and thus far readers seem to enjoy it, which is always a relief.

On July 10, the first Midsummer Suspense Tales boxset will be released–CINDERS, BEAUTY, and SNOW have been collected all as one. It’s available for pre-order at: KindleAReNookKoboiBookstore

AK-StarterBundle1-kindleAfter that, on August 14, I’m releasing the Asha King Starter Bundle as another boxset–this is three of my series first books collected together in one release. Not something the average fan needs but hopefully it’ll get some new eyes on my work. If you’ve missed those books and want to save several bucks, there you go. WILD HORSES (retail $3.99), CATS IN HEAT (retail $2.99), and CINDERS (retail $2.99) for $4.99 total.

What I’m Working On

As I mentioned on Facebook the other night, I’m working on Cats & Conjure #3 right now, STRAY CAT STRUT. It has a blurb, a cover, and an outline, and now I just need to finish writing it.

There are three more novellas planned in that series (you will understand when you see how #3 ends), however I will have to stagger the books between others because the previous one didn’t sell well and I can’t afford to spend that much time away from books that DO make okay money. Thank you to those who purchase my books and I’m sorry for the gap between releases. When STRAY CAT STRUT is ready, I’ll maybe write up a recap of the previous two for longtime readers as a refresher.

It’s back to work for me. Thank you again for the suppotr!

New Release – The Book of Love

The Book of Love is now available everywhere in print and ebook.

This is a longer novel (around the length of Sympathy for the Devil). It’s $4.99 in ebook and $10.49 in print (USD).

Romance editor Janaeh Forrester is a problem solver. A Jill of all trades, she’s worked in all aspects of publishing and no challenge is too big for her to overcome. It’s this reputation that leads her new employer to send her after the elusive Delilah Daniels, their top selling romance writer, who won’t deliver her latest manuscript and made the last editor quit. 

But “Delilah” is nothing that Janaeh expects. It’s the pen name of Carter Daniels, a thirty-something man as sexy as he is arrogant and frustrating. 

Six months have passed since Carter’s divorce was finalized and writing happily-ever-afters seems like a lie he can no longer tell. When Janaeh shows up at his door with a schedule in hand and threats to take back his advance if he doesn’t meet his deadlines, he assumes it’s a joke. But his attractive new editor is there to see that he finishes the book, driving him mad with both irritation and desire. 

Her presence stirs up something far more sinister, however: Janaeh is directly in the path of Carter’s more fanatical followers, and someone will stop at nothing to get her out of the way.

Also, there’s a summer sale–my first romantic suspense novel, Wild Horses, is on for 99c all June.

Summer Sale – WILD HORSES

I can’t believe it’s been three years since Wild Horses was first released!

This was my first romantic suspense story and why I fell in love with writing the genre–if not for Wild Horses, I might not’ve started Midsummer Suspense Tales and The Book of Love (which is out Friday–my THIRTEENTH release!). In case you’ve missed it, this short novel is on sale for the month of June for 99c.

Popular blogger Danyiah Jackson is known for finding the humor in anything—until some of her fan mail turns threatening and a stalker makes it clear he’s been watching her. She grudgingly accepts the advice of a threat assessment expert and disappears from the online world, taking temporary refuge at a family friend’s quarter horse ranch in the country.
Head horse wrangler Adam Cooper isn’t thrilled about the smart-mouthed young woman suddenly living and working at the ranch—even if she’s drop dead gorgeous. But their verbal sparring sets his body ablaze and gets his heart racing, and he’s drawn to her despite his misgivings.
As Danyiah and Adam fight their attraction, however, her stalker draws near, putting not only their fledgling love but their lives on the line.
