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.


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!


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.).


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.


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.


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!!!!

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.

So if you've already written a review, or you write a review by midnight Sunday November 12, let me know with a comment or an email, and I'll enter your name into a drawing for a free copy of Arabella's Taming!

First name gets a free signed paperback as well as the ebook, and runner-up gets the free ebook!
