Updates on everything

With SASS only a month away, I need to wrap up so many things. I've decided I'm not going to bring A Pile of Bones with me to it. No one has ordered it so I can leave it off. It is available online everywhere now so you can check it out. It's book two and a PC centered book. Book one will be available at SASS though not that many copies.*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0

Books that I will defnitely have with me:
Wrapped in Death and Chocolate
Four of the Usual Suspects
Sweet Love
Secrets Under the Big Top
Ghosts of Burning Inn

I'm contemplating on bringing TRA but I probably will get a few copies. Ditto with Hearts Under Ice. Paper Hearts, the sequel to that, may also be there depending on how quickly I get the paperback out. I will have tons of swag though for the new books. I'm waiting on some of it to come in now. 

Updates on current works:
Cirque Macabre #2: 21K
Flavors of Love #2: 54K (almost done, needs loose ends tied up)
Patterns & Parallels #3: 18K
Portman's Creamery #4: 25K
Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 25K (stalled over here)
TRA #3: 34K

I've decided to make PC #3 into PC #4 since I already have another PC book that has been edited. It just needs a cover now. That will probably come out in November. Ghosts is stalled at the moment. I need some inspiration to pick it back up. Most of all, I've been trying to get Cirque Macabre #2: The Vanishing Act finished right before the end of the year. I want it out by January 2016. I thought it would be out sooner but I didn't like my original script. 

Book one came out two years ago and book two picks up where it left off. You can check it out now so you can catch up. Two years is a long time for something, I know.*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0

I also started Flavors of Love #3 but I'm not trying to go too far on it now. I rotate between books each day. This weekend, I focused more on Cirque Macabre #2 and a little on TRA #3. Tomorrow, I will probably try to get back to either PC #4 or Patterns & Parallels #3. My audiobooks have also been stalled thanks to technical problems. I'll inquire about that this week too. 

Now to hit writing again. So close to so many goals and still so far away.

Cover reveal: Paper Hearts

At long last, here’s the cover for the next Patterns & Parallels book: Paper Hearts. As this is book two, it might be better to read book one first. It sets up everything in book two and starts where the first one left off.
Hearts Under Ice:
Another thing I want to mention is I’m really close to big goal regarding sales with Wrapped in Death and Chocolate. A few more and I will reach my goal! I know have the book available pratically everywhere so Nook lovers, Itunes lovers, etc can rejoice! If I reach it, it’s party time!
And in audiobook form!
Speaking ofAUDIOBOOKS, I’m a bit delayed with the latest ones right now. Technical issues. I’ll let you know when they’ll be out.

Black Paradise Circus #2 now out in some countries

Apparently, BPC is live in some coutries over the ocean! If you happen to be lucky enough, you can get it right now! Here are a few of the European links (as well as Australia). It is a Portman’s Creamery book series. This is slightly different in the sense that it takes place in a different time (like later in the year or something like that), the cases are longer and darker, and this focuses on the girls as a group.
Book one is still out there too. Both books are at a low price.
Sadly, I do not think Black Paradise Circus #3 (the conclusion) will be out this year. I’m aiming for next year instead and then we can finally make this a box set. As far as the next book to finish, I’m trying to wrap up Flavors of Love #2. It’s more or less done, it just needs holes filled in. Then The Reaper’s Apprentices #3 looks like it’s heading towards the finish line.
Tomorrow is also the cover reveal of Patterns & Paralles #2: Paper Hearts! This book will be out October 13th!

Just a brief update

I don't have a whole lot of new stuff at the moment. New audiobooks for Four of the Usual Suspects and Sweet Love should be coming out soon. Sweet Love had some audio issues so hopefully, once my producer fixes those, that will be out. However, we still have Wrapped in Death and Chocolate out! I will be bringing the paperbacks to SASS.

I still have a ton of free codes for the audiobook. If you want one, drop me a line! I'm like four away from a big celebration with the audiobooks now. If I can get just four more, I will celebrate that along with my Smashwords goal.

Time for some links!

The audiobook:

Patterns & Parallels #2 is with the editor and the cover looks gorgeous. Cover reveal will be on Tuesday :D

Slowly but surely getting ready for SASS. I've also got a few takovers coming up on Facebook. As soon as I collect myself, things will get better.

Much love,

Wrapped in Death and Chocolate now available on audio!

After long last, Wrapped in Death and Chocolate finally made it to audiobook. I have been waiting for a long time tbh. This is great because now those who like audiobooks can get this one! I could always use audiobook reviewers so if you're interested, let me know.

If you've never read it, it's now available practically everywhere.

Also, in case you missed it, both The Reaper's Apprentices #2 and Black Paradise Circus #2 are available on pre-order on Kindle.*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0*Version*=1&*entries*=0

If you can't wait that long for any of them, Black Paradise Circus #2 is available and live on Smashwords and Itunes right now.

I do apologize for all the links and the sudden news but when it rains, it doesn't trickle. It pours. I will try to space everything out as much as I can.

Updates and new book on Smashwords!

Well, I got Black Paradise Circus #2 back and decided to go ahead and upload it on Smashwords. It’s up now and 99 cents! You can still get Black Paradise Circus #1 as well. It is a Portman’s Creamery book, just a different kind. Rather than focusing on one girl, it focuses on the group and the cases are longer.
Updates to current works:
Flavors of Love #2: 52K
Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 24K
Portman’s Creamery #3: 19K
Patterns & Parallels #3: 12K
The Reaper’s Apprentices #3: 23K
Cirque Macabre #2: 16K
Flavors of Love #2 is most likely next to be released along with a different PC book. I’m also awaiting some more swag and will get paperback formatting for some of the books soon. I do need to know if anyone plans to preorder. I’m planning on putting together a nice basket to anyone that buys a book (either early or at the signing). I’ve got loads of nice stuff now. I do need to know so I can order certain books. I won’t be bringing everything or a whole ton of them.
Speaking of new stuff, I have new stuff soon! Preorder links to both books. They are 99 cents or free on KU.
Black Paradise Circus #2
The Reaper’s Apprentices #2
I’ll have other links later as well as more news.

A new decision

I’ve been actually thinking about this for a while and I’ve decided that I’ll go ahead with it. I have another PC book that is already edited and I can get it formatted no problem. All I really need is a book cover and I’ve been wondering why I’m holding off on releasing it this year. So I’ve decided that I will go ahead and get it done. The next book is one you’ve heard me talk about but I’ve held off on publishing it.
So this is my current schedule:
The Reaper’s Apprentices #2: The Contracts (coming Sept 14th)
Black Paradise Circus #2: A Pile of Bones (coming Sept 28th)
Patterns & Parallels #2: Paper Hearts (coming October 11th)
Flavors of Love #2: Distant Love (coming late October/early November)
Portman Creamery book/Becca’s first mystery (coming Nov/Dec)
Updates on current works:
Flavors of Love #2: 51K (it’s a little messy so I’m trying to tighten it up)
Ghosts of Burning Inn #2: 24K
The Reaper’s Apprentices #3: 21K
Cirque Macabre #2: 16K
Portman Creamery/ Mary Beth’s first mystery: 16K
Patterns & Parallels #3: 11K
Once either Ghosts or TRA gets to a decent place, I’ll probably start another sequel. I just don’t know for which series yet. September and October are very busy months for me for many reasons. I’ll be amazed if I get time to breathe.
I’m still hoping I can reach my goal at Smashwords. I’m just 9 sales away from it! Eek, it’s so close!
Don’t forget about the pre-order link being live for The Reaper’s Apprentices #2!
I’ve also ordered more swag with the new cover designs on them. I can’t wait for cover reveals either!
I’ll try to spread my news evenly if I can.

A slightly better update than last time

I have a lot to talk about over the next few days so please bear with me. This one will be a short, quick update. I’ll go into details later.
First off, Smashwords is being kinda hard to deal with regarding preorders so I’ve decided I won’t bring back The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 until September 14th. I’m sorry but it’s being a pain. You can still pre-order the book in other places. (Links for that a little later) I’ve also decided no more pre-order over there.
The second thing regarding Smashwords is that I’m close to a big milestone over there. If I reach it, I might do something big and special regarding it.
Third thing, I’m still waiting on Audible to get Wrapped in Death and Chocolate up for audio. It’s headed to retail now and I just have to wait. Waiting really is the hardest part. The audiobooks for Four of the Usual Suspects and Sweet Love are also coming along and sound great.
Fourth, upcoming releases.
The Reaper’s Apprentices #2 will be out on September 14th.
Black Paradise Circus #2 will be out September 28th.
Patterns & Parallels #3 will be out October 11th.
Flavors of Love #2 will be out either sometime late October or early November.
That will probably wrap up the new books for the year of 2015. I may or may not release another PC book in December but I’m not sure on that yet.  One day soon, I will make a master list of every series and universe. it will be for the sake of readers and myself as well.
Finally, the main thing. Buy links!
The Reaper’s Apprentices #1 is on sale for 99 cents on Amazon. (Just posting one link for now)
Preorder for The Reaper’s Apprentices #2:
There’s no need to read book 1 to get book 2 but I do recommend it. Book 3 will come out next year and then the beginning arc will be over. Then we get into the bigger, good stuff.

The Reaper's Apprentices #2 is now available for pre-order!

I have a lot of news to spread and I’ll do so over the next few days. Right now, I want to mention the main thing and that is that The Reaper’s Apprentices #2: The Contracts is now live for pre-order almost everywhere! Not only that, it is available for 99 cents! That’s a good deal to get before it releases on September 14th!
Here are theAMAZON links (a few for now):
Not only that, it’s available for pre-order in other places for 99 cents or so (except B&N is still 2.99 for some reason). You can set price at SW to reflect what you want. In some cases, I’m not sure why there are two places these are up at. Oh well.
FYI, you can still get TRA #1 for 99 cents. (Up until the 14th)
A lot of news is on the way so stay tuned!
