Oops & sorry!

So….

…….I had to unpublish The Deal at Smashwords, as according to Amazon’s KDP Select program, they still have exclusivity.

Sorry, I shoulda read the fine print before I uploaded it.

The good news is, all that exclusivity ends in June/July — for all of my Amazon titles.

So everything’ll be on Smashwords soon-ish.

Sincere regards and happy reading,

Formatting, formatting, formatting…and re-submitting!

So….

……..I’ve spent the better part of this morning formatting and editing files for Smashwords and Kindle.

I’m going to be uploading new versions of Shades of Grey: Prologue and Shades of Grey: Hear No Evil to Kindle (I kinda made a few MINOR changes to the tail-end of SoG:HNE — nothing too significant, just some expansion to the Witigo discovery).

AND AND AND — Her Man, The Deal, Getting Lucky I: Pedro & Eddie, Shades of Grey: Prologue and Shades of Grey: Hear No Evil SHOULD be available on Smashwords in the next 72 hours or so!!!

Provided I meet their standards and all that!

Previously, these titles were only available on Kindle.

Anyway, I must return to said tasks…

Sincere regards and happy reading!

Regrets and apologies, but….

April 24, 2012 at 2:16 pm (Uncategorized)

So…..

………sorry folks, did not get manuscripts formatted for Smashwords this weekend, as promised.

After a long stretch of night shifts, I confess I spent a great deal of my 48 hours off catching up on sleep around the clock, eating poorly, browsing my cable selections half-heartedly, surfing the Internet (damn you FB!!!) and trying to tidy up a few of the cluttered and messy corners of my apartment.

I vow to make better use of my time off next week, and the week after, where formatting of the manuscripts is concerned.

I’m sure that there isn’t anyone too heartbroken 🙂

Sincere regards and happy reading!

Formatting and updating manuscripts/titles for Smashwords this weekend…

April 17, 2012 at 5:56 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

So…

…….as soon as I got back from China, I was put back to work immediately (lol).

Literally: I arrived in Thompson with my bus delayed approximately three hours and thought that I would be able to catch up on some sleep.  When I woke up, I saw that I had a text message — my Manager, asking if I could work a Night shift THAT night.

I said “yes” (I rarely say “no”), and thus began a whirlwind week at work, where I got two revisions done during my one day off and some down time :).

Now here I am, on a brief break during a night shift, announcing that I am revising my manuscripts and doing the necessary formatting to make them suitable for Smashwords (Autovetter).

With any luck, on my two days off this weekend I will be able to have the following titles available at Smashwords:

Her Man (contemporary romance)

Shades of Grey: Prologue (paranormal/horror/psychological thriller)

Shades of Grey: Hear No Evil (paranormal/horror/psychological thriller)

Getting Lucky I: Pedro & Eddie (interracial erotica)

The Deal (paranormal erotica)

I am going to revise the manuscripts whose contracts have terminated at both New Concepts Publishing and Extasy Books and make them available on BOTH Smashwords.com and Amazon.com.  These include:

Of Crimson Blood and Ivory Skin (M/F/F paranormal erotica)

Blood Song: The Captive (paranormal erotica)

My Experimental Years (M/F, F/F erotica novel-length)

Tales From the Owner-Operator of the Boulevard Motor Hotel (BDSM erotica)

The L-Word (M/F short erotica)

Tomorrow, Part One (sensual fantasy, novel-length)

As many of these manuscripts need some serious revision and possible redirection, it’s hard to say when ALL of them will be released.

Suffice to say, I will start with the Shades of Grey series, and work my way from there.

I also have a NUMBER of projects on the go that are beginning to call for my attention with voices raising in agitation, so it is possible that my creative energies will be spent breathing life into some entirely new stuff in the near future.

It would be nice, however, to get Shades of Grey Book 3, 4 and 5 out before Halloween, as well as Reaper 6.

Thank you for your time and interest in my twisted imagination!

Sincere regards and happy reading!
