OMG! Thanks to the lovely art department at Total-E-Bound, my first novel has a cover! Zach and Faye have bodies! 😀
I’m so exciteeeeeed! I finished my final line edits today, and now all I have to do is wait until October 10th!
*bounces around the room like a lunatic*
I would apologise for the size of the image, but… it’s amazing, so I’m not going to!
So Dominance and Deception, my first novel, will be out in October. And the publisher doesn’t want to release any of their future publications in the present tense. Sooooo… I have to change it to the past tense. Which really sucks, because it’s mostly written in stream-of-consciousness.
*head-desk* It’s going to take me forever to get it sounding decent in past. But I like working with TEB, so I’m going to give it a go. It’s going to drive me nuts, but I’ll give it a go.
Faye and Zach are not going to be happy… XD
*squee!* Dominance and Deception, my first e-novel, will be released on 10th October! This is beyond exciting. It’ll be interesting to see what the erotica-reading masses think of Zach and Faye’s exploits.
I can’t wait to see what the cover looks like. I’m hoping it won’t be like every other cover out there – because what’s up with that? The other day I grabbed a copy of a book, thinking it was the new Trudi Canavan novel, and it turned out to be some other random fantasy novel with almost identical artwork. So annoying! Everyone seems to copy everyone else these days.
In other news, my free read Lipstick hit 1000 downloads on Smashwords last night! Thank you to the 1000 people who have read it (or the one crazy individual who has downloaded it 1000 times). 😀 I’ve eaten a celebratory chocolate muffin in honour of this landmark – though if I’m honest, I probably would have eaten the muffin anyway. 😉
I’ve managed to claw together six stories from my Sir and Little Tease series, and make them into one continuous novel. Okay, so there are time-skips of a few months at a time, but I think it works.
So – Dominance and Deception is just over 69,000 words long, and has kink, crime, menage, switching, m/f, m/m, implied f/f, discipline/punishment, danger, angst and torture – but hopefully not in a ‘WTF is happening now?!’ way. *grins* Faye and Zach are fun to write about. And inspired by TV characters in a lot of ways, if I’m totally honest. But y’know.
Glad to move the task of proofreading it to the ‘done’ list – I have enough to go through for clients at the moment (I proofread/copy edit novels as my evening job, and work in advertising/marketing as a day job!).
I’ll leave you with my little blurb:
Submission is a dangerous game…
Faye Tate is a police forensic scientist, a switch, and secretly in love with a police detective. Detective Zach Pierce has made many enemies, but his attraction to Faye is too strong to be denied.
Can Pierce protect his submissive from those who seek to use her against him, or will her devotion to her Dom cost Faye her life?
This is one of those moments where life gets pretty damn awesome. 😀
The Sir/Little Tease series I’ve been working on will be released within the next six months as a complete, full-length e-novel. If it sells well, the publisher might select it for print.
Being that my entire mission in life is to hold a physical, printed book written by me and published by someone who is NOT me… I’m pretty damn excited.
