Mastering Lexie Cover & Giveaway

Happy November everyone!!!

So I'm pretty excited about a lot of stuff going on... I now have the cover for Mastering Lexie (Thanks to RaineyCloud9 by designer Crystal Raine and her incredible talent) and I'll be making it available for pre-order on Amazon this week, which I'll let you guys know when it's up. I'll be looking into how to do pre-order for the other sites as well.

On Facebook I have reached 89 Likes... to encourage people liking my Facebook page (I swear, I say all sorts of interesting things on there, really!) once I get to 100 Likes on my page, I will have a Mastering Lexie giveaway specifically for my Facebook followers!

On Twitter, I have 294 followers... to encourage people following me on Twitter, once I have 300 followers, I will have a Mastering Lexie giveaway specifically for my Twitter followers!

For both giveaways, I will be giving one lucky winner a free e-book copy of Mastering Lexie.

I'm currently at about 43K words =)  A little over 1/3 of the way through the book.  It's moving along at a good pace!!!

On Friday, I submitted Chapter 13 of From Terra to Literotica, so that should be out any day now!  For those of you wondering, Lord Plath will be returning... just not until Chapter 16.  I'll hopefully finish writing Chapter 14 in the next couple of days.

And I'm having a really good time working on the Stronghold short story for Yellow Silk Dreams' Christmas anthology!  It's fun to write something for Stronghold that's not a full length, super involved story, but also gives me (and you) a little glimpse into some of the characters on the outskirts of the main Stronghold group.  Good times!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and a great Halloween... Facebook & Twitter followers got to see my Luna Lovegood Stormtrooper outfit, so if you aren't tempted by a giveaway, maybe you'll be tempted by that! =D


  1. I love the cover! It's sexy and mysterious. I can't wait to read the book :)

    1. Thanks! I think my designer does an amazing job, and even though I did nothing but pick the original picture and then nitpick at the drafts she sent me, I still get warm fuzzies from knowing that people love it! I'm just so excited that something so pretty is part of my books =)

  2. Sorry to be a killjoy but I'm not sure if the pre-order thing is a good idea - according to this, it isn't:
    Some good points there.
    Good luck with it, and keep writing - maybe a Lit Winter Contest entry?

    1. Yeah, some good points, but people seem to want it and I know I appreciate it when I can pick up pre-order books =) So far, everything I've done with book-selling has been because people requested it, so I'm just going to keep going with that trend. LOL. Might effect my rankings, but as long as the fans are happy that's good enough for me! Plus, hopefully it means they'll write me really nice reviews once the book DOES come out =P

  3. Following up on an email I sent to you today using the email form on the first page of your blog. The message has to do with a few typos in Birched. If you didn't get it ... and wish to, tell me (by a response here, I guess) if there is an alternative way to contact you. (With as much anonymity as you wish/need). I put my real name and email in that message.

    PS I must add that I very much enjoyed your writings on Literotica and now in the wider world of Kindle.

    1. Unfortunately I don't seem to have gotten the email, but you can always email me directly at =)

      Thank you!

  4. Almost forgot. Words!

    I'd never heard of "night rail" and enjoyed learning a new, albeit archaic term. I'm guessing if I read regency romances I would know "ton" or "le bon ton." (I do read in many genres including Amish, "women's fiction" and the sort of romances that Robyn Carr or Charles Martin write. Plus all the 'usual suspects' genres in books that guys read.)

    Here is a term I learned recently that you may find useful: "cutty sark." Or, I may be embarrassed to find it is common as heck in period romances. Anyway, one of the things I prize as a reader is learning new stuff. Thanks.

    1. I've never heard "cutty sark"! what does it mean? I love finding new words to incorporate into the stories =) Yeah, regency romances includes a lot of French, I try to stay away from it somewhat, but since regency England upperclass spoke a lot of drawing room French, I can't entirely, and since they called themselves the ton, there's only so much I can do about that LOL
