The warmth has finally brought out the cheerful red, yellow, and lavender blooms in my backyard, so to celebrate I’m making two of my titles free for a couple of days.
In WITH HEART TO HEAR a passionate lord of Faerie meets a Victorian bluestocking. It’s FREE 5/14 – 5/16. This sensual beauty and the beast novelette is hotter than most of what I write.
And for those contemplating self-publishing, BLAZING A TRAIL: Your Self-Publishing Journey is also FREE on 5/15 – 5/16.
I hope you enjoy one or both of these titles, and that you’ll take the time to tell me what you think by leaving a review on Amazon.
After some unexpected Life Events I’m back at work revising my next release, BETRAYED BY TRUST. For those of you who have been waiting for another Celestial Affairs novel, you’ll be happy to know that Gideon plays a role in this book. It takes place in 1979, and although it isn’t exactly a prequel to LIGHTBRINGER, it does tie into the Celestial Affairs story arc.
Here’s a teaser:
It’s January, 1979. The Vietnam war is over. The oil embargo and long gas lines a bad memory. And Three Mile Island is just a Pennsylvanian power plant that no one has ever heard of.
Marianne Benton works for the Trust, a secretive organization guarding against abuses of occult power. Marianne’s assignment, rescue an Elemental Spirit from slavery — by seducing the heir to a corporate dynasty.
Dan Collier is a former Green Beret. His assignment: keep Marianne alive.
The wonderful thing about self-publishing is that there is always something new to learn.

I was adding information and references right up to the very last minute before pushing the button on BLAZING A TRAIL: Your Self Publishing Journey. As much as I wanted to, I couldn’t hold up the process for “just one more thing” and ever get it out the door. That means I’m already planning the 2nd edition.
I didn’t want to do a second edition of the book, and if BAT doesn’t earn out its production costs in a reasonable length of time I still may not. But I just began reading series of posts by Elle Lothlorien is posting over at Digital Book World which began with, “Strip the Market Bare and Whip It: Ten Things Authors Must Do to Survive in 2013.” I immediately wanted to share what I’d learned. Elle is a sharp cookie. She’s the author of five self-published novels including THE FROG PRINCE, an Amazon bestseller. I intend to benefit from her experience. At first I was frustrated that I couldn’t put what I’d just learned in BLAZING A TRAIL, but I can share that information with you here, just as I always have, and eventually that info will make it into the next edition of BAT.
