Pics of new swag and more!

I promised I wasn't going to update again so soon but a lot of stuff happened towards the end of the week. Go figure.

First off, I finally got TRA #2 back to me and sent to get formatted. It's officially called The Reaper's Apprentices #2: The Contracts. The release date is September 14th (cause one of the main characters is born on that day too) and I'll have it up for pre-order as soon as it comes back from formatting. In the meantime, you can go ahead and add it to your libraries at Smashwords. I'll probably fix the description too. It's so hard to write this one's description.

Secondly...Wrapped in Death and Chocolate's audiobook is done! I'm just waiting for it to be approved. It'll show up on the Amazon links. If you want to follow along or read the story ahead of time, you can get it here. 

Amazon CAN:*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Third piece of news, I got a glimpse of the possible new cover to Patterns & Parallels #2 and it looks just as great! P&P #2 goes to the editor on the 8th. Hopefully, I can get swag for it before SASS. 

Fourth and final piece of are pics of new swag! Thanks to Kelli's Kollectables and Sweet Book Swag for them! I can't wait to my hands on them! Then I'll probably make something for P&P #2, the Black Paradise Circus arc, and Four of the Usual Suspects and that'll be it. 

Book updates:

Flavors of Love #2: 44K (nearing the end of this)
Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 20K
The Reaper's Apprentice2 #3: 16K
Portman's Creamery #3: 15K
Cirque Macabre #3: 15K
Patterns & Parallels #3: 9K

Toodles for now!

Short update

Well, I got my cover for Flavors of Love #2: Distant Love and it looks amazing. Once again, it’s been created by the guys at pixelstudios. This book will probably be out after SASS because it’s still not done yet. I just need a little more motivation to complete it.
Although book 2 can be read as a standalone, book 1 is still worth the read. It introduces you to everything. I will warn you that my Flavors of Love series is an erotica series so it’s intended for 18+ audiences. There is some paranormal bits to it but nothing that’ll turn you off completely if you hate paranormal. TheAUDIOBOOK to book 1 will be out sometime next month.
Only 1.99 atAMAZON!
I also have a 99 cent everywhere else for it.
As far as other books, most of them are coming along. Flavors of Love #2 is at 42K still. Ghosts of Burning Inn #2 is still at 20K. Then we’ve got Cirque Macabre #2, Portman’s Creamery #3, and The Reaper’s Apprentices #3 at 15K. Rounding it up at the end is Patterns & Parallels #3 at 8K.
I’ve got an idea of what’s coming out next year.
Cirque Macabre #2
Ghosts of Burning Inn #2
Portman’s Creamery #3
Portman’s Creamery #4
Patterns & Parallels #3
Black Paradise Circus #3 (final book)
Of course, this can change at any time. Nothing is set in stone.
I’ll be back hopefully later with good news.

Updates again

I was going to update yesterday but I realize that I've been updating on Monday nights for the last few weeks (don't ask why my calender has them marked under Tuesday. I think it's further ahead than I am). Anyway, some minor updates to mention.

First, I have finally gotten around to ordering more swag for SASS. In addition to my poker chips, postcards, and magnets, I shall have more chapstick along with new things like hand lotion, hand sanitzer, and...this may excite you...condoms. The latter is not official yet but it might be. Yes, they'll be representing the Flavors of Love series. So now almost everything has swag for it except The Black Paradise Circus series (unless you want to count Portman's Creamery with it cause it is a longer mystery with the PC girls). 

Secondly, I'm waiting on my cover for Patterns & Parallels #2: Paper Hearts. I forgot how much I like being in the P&P universe (or universes) sometimes. I think that may be why I went back to it this weekend. Now that I've started the third book, it's forming into something big. The first one is available online for only 2.99. 

Patterns & Parallels #1:*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Third, audiobooks will be out soon and I'll be needing people listening and reviewing. If you are interested in that, please drop me a line. I'll send you an audible code so you can get them for free. At the moment, only Ghosts of Burning Inn #1 has an audiobook to it but Wrapped in Death and Chocolate, Four of the Usual Suspects, and Sweet Love will be coming soon too. 

Fourth, I'm coming close to hitting a milestone at Smashwords! Just 15 more to go! Here's my profile over there in case you never saw it.

Updates on works:

Flavors of Love #2: 42K
Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 20K (stopped this for now)
Cirque Macabre #2: 15K
Portman's Creamery #3: 15K 
The Reaper's Apprentices #3: 14K
Patterns & Parallels #3: 8K
Operation: Genome #3: 22K
Operation: Genome #4: 38K

(Don't asky why OG #4 is further ahead than #3. This is my longest series so it takes longer to write. I do promise that book 2 will come out next year though.) 

Now I should probably get back to writing.

A slight update on things

Since things ended up moving slowly this month, The Reaper's Apprentices #2 and Black Paradise Circus #2 will probably come out next month. They're both still with editors right now. Once they're back in my hands though, you'll know. Boy, will you know!

I've got audiobook news instead. More audiobooks coming your way soon! Wrapped in Death and Chocolate should be done by the end of this month! I also have the audiobooks of Four of the Usual Suspects and Sweet Love coming next month. The narrator of Sweet Love was gracious enough to post a sample of it on his page so you can check it out.

If you've never read Sweet Love, you can find that here:


As you recall, I finally got Wrapped in other places such as the following below. If you buy your ebooks from them, you can get this one now!

Other places to find Wrapped in Death and Chocolate:


Speaking of Audiobooks, Into the Limelight is still available on Audible, Amazon, and Itunes!

Other news that I've got...I'm ordering more swag for Sassy in the South in October. I'm going to add some lotion and hand santizers to my growing batch of chapstick, poker chips, postcards, and magnets. I've also gotten my cover designer and editor for Patterns & Parallels #2. I should have that for SASS in October as well.

Book updates:

Flavors of Love #2: 41K
Cirque Macabre #2: 15K
Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 20K
PC #3: 15K
TRA #3: 11K
P&P #3: 4K

I did feel like writing Patterns & Parallels #3 this week so I did a little work on it. I'm not going to do too much on that or TRA #3 for now. The other four are top priority.

I think I've bored everyone enough. Hopefully, good news will follow this weekend.

Cover reveal!

It's high time that I post the new cover to The Reaper's Apprentices #2: The Contracts. Right now, the book is with the editor and as soon as I get it back, I'll get around to uploading it. I'm aiming for a due date in September. As for Black Paradise Circus #2, I'm on the hunt for another editor. Hopefully, I can find one in time. If not, then I'll have to save this for the end of the year :/

I do apologize for taking my time with this reveal. I've had so much to deal with regarding work and home that certain things are getting pushed back. Needless to say, this has been a pretty awful summer. I've made some changes at my day job that will hopefully take some of the stress off. It's not a great change but I think it needed to be done. I still have my job, of course! I'm just getting rid of the stress I can get rid of. I'll still have time for writing as well. I'm just frustrated that things are not getting done as quickly as possible and I also to deal with stress in real life. This was not what I was hoping for. So things are just a little delayed but hopefully not for too long.

Whoa, this entry became more depressing than I wanted it to be! I promise I will bring better news next time.

New covers & new places for Wrapped in Death and Chocolate

First off, I want to show the new cover to The Reaper's Apprentices #1: Awakened. I felt it needed a change and I lost touch with my old designer. (Plus this cost a lot less too). I can't wait to show you The Reaper's Apprentices #2's cover on Tuesday! Book 2 is with the editor right now. I've also secured editors for Patterns & Parallels #2 and Black Paradise Circus #2.

I also mentioned that Wrapped in Death and Chocolate would have more places where you could find it. Well, now it's up pratically everywhere! They're for sale for 99 cents except on Smashwords where you can set your price. If you're never read it before, now's your chance!


Updates on current works:

Flavors of Love #2: 37K
Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 18K
Cirque Macabre #2: 15K
Portman's Creamery #3: 11K (got stalled on this one)
The Reaper's Apprentices #3: 11K

Once most of these reach a good point, I'll go into my next set which will be:

Operation: Genome #3
Patterns & Parallels #3
Black Paradise Circus #3
Portman's Creamery #4
Flavors of Love #3

(So it's mostly #3 books coming up)

More coming later!

Some updates

Well, today I sent The Reaper's Apprentices #2 to the editor. Later this week, I'll be sending Black Paradise Circus #2. These are sequels but you can read them without reading book 1.I'm also getting the cover ready for TRA #1 & 2. I want to change the covers so they match up. Hopefully, I'll be getting the new one up soon.

Not only that, today is the day of Black Paradise Circus #2 cover reveal! Here it is! The credit goes to pro-ebook covers.

To check out the first books of these, they are over here.

Black Paradise Circus #1*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0

I finally got the epub of Wrapped in Death and Chocolate done! Not only that, it's up on Smashwords now! It took long enough but it's there now. Hopefully, it'll come up everywhere else as well.

I'm also planning the next couple of signings so be on the lookout for those!

Will be back later,

Updates and so and so

Well, Sweet Love is also going to be turned into an audiobook. So that means I’ll have about fourAUDIOBOOKS; Into the Limelight, Wrapped in Death and Chocolate, Four of the Usual Suspects, and Sweet Love.
I’m two sales away from reaching a milestone at Smashwords. If I hit it, I might do something special. *wink*
Since I still haveFREE AUDIBLE codes for Into the Limelight, here’s three for anyone who wants them; first come, first serve.
  3. E4B54J5Y8J87J
Well, everything is set with the editor so I’ll be sending The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 and Patterns & Parallels #2 to them (either that or Black Paradise Circus #2). I need toUPDATE The Reaper’s Apprentices #1 cover but my designer is on vacation.
In any case, The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 is coming up next either later August or early September. The series is a paranormal romance or at least it will lead to it. I do recommend reading book 1 first. If you read book 2, you’ll still get it but book 1 sets things up. It’s the girls’ story whereas book 2 is the guys’ story. It’s now up on the other places too like Barnes & Noble so if you read on Nooks, now you can read this!
I also need to order some more swag, which I’m lagging on. I’m getting the formatting updated on Wrapped in Death andCHOCOLATE right now. I’m so behind on everything and Sassy in the South is in October. Go figure. That usually happens right before.
UPDATESon current books:
Flavors of Love #2: 35K (most likely the next book to be finished and out in winter)
Cirque Macabre #2: 13K
Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 15K
NewPC book: 11K
TRA #3: 5K
Hopefully, this weekend will lead to someUPDATES.

Short update

I think I mentiioned that the cover reveal for Black Paradise Circus #2 was going to be the 3rd but I meant to write 13th. I do apologize for that because that’s my bad.. Since it’s my screw up, I will reveal it three days earlier on the 10th. The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 cover reveal will still be on the 17th.
With Wrapped in Death and Chocolate’s audiobook in the works (and due at the end of the month), I’m making theEBOOK 99 cents for a limited time. I’m also going to get epub versions so I can sell it in other places later this month. However, you can get it now on Amazon.
I’ll do a better update on everything later in the week.
Take care,

Bigger amount of updates

Welcome to a brand new month! There are some new changes happening.
First thing that I forgot to mention is that both Portman Creamery books (that are the standalones, not BPC) will be turned to audiobooks! Wrapped in Death and Chocolate should be done by end of this month and Four of the Usual Suspects should be done by mid-September. Of course, it could be earlier. I’ll keep you up to date on that.
I finally got The Reaper’s Apprentices #1 on other platforms.
In case you missed it, my book Into the Limelight is now on Audible, Amazon, andITUNES. Reviews are always appreciated. If you would like a free code to get on, just please let know via my FB or my Twitter: CyberPeacock.
I am now instagram as well. I know, it took a good long time. I haven’t posted a whole ton yet but I hope to change that in the future.
I’ll have a few freebies this week to honor my mother who’s turning 60 on the 6th. So for today and tomorrow, Secrets Under the Big Top will beFREE. On the 6th, Four of the Usual Suspects will be free.
As far asUPDATES on books go, we’ve got to 11K on the new PC book, 31K on Flavors of Love #2, 13K on Ghosts #2, 4k on TRA #3, and 12K on Cirque Macabre #2. Everything is moving along at a steady pace.
