**AUTOGRAPHED PAPERBACK**

This anthology includes all six Candy Man Delivery Stories.

I have six flavors of chocolate man for you. Each short story has a happy ending and a happily every after!

The Greek god Eros picks a god to inhabit the stunning carved statue for the heroine’s lifetime so she can have her happy ending. These are women in their 30’s and 40’s who’ve loved, lost, and survived life.

Overall Blurb:

Master sculptor Viviana is pleasantly surprised to find a tall block of milk chocolate in her shops cooler with simple instructions. She’s to carve the perfect male figure, think of what she wants in a dream man, and then sprinkle the enclosed magic dust over the chocolate man. Adonis shimmers to light bringing passion, devotion, and love. They opened the Candy Man Delivery Service to share their joy and bring chocolate men to women who need complete devotion and lifelong passion.

TASTES LIKE CHOCOLATE: Viviana’s heartbreak and betrayal by her ex-fiance’ is poured into her sculpting. While working on a statue of pure milk chocolate, she finds herself talking to the man emerging about her hopes, dreams, and desires. Sprinkling gold dust over his stunning finished form makes his body glitter as he comes to life taking her into his arms. Their passion ignites a side of her she’d given up on, can they survive the jealousy of her former flame to find love?

IRISH CREAM DREAMS: Mary Elizabeth owns an irish pub on the beach in South Florida. Picked by Eros to receive a chocolate man of her own, she struggles with doubts and insecurity. Joshua is carved perfection smelling of Irish Liqueur and Chocolate, can his sweetness get her to open up to everlasting love?

WHITE CHOCOLATE CHERRY: Julia is getting ready for work, her camerawoman and best friend Amy by her side, when a notice is left at her door. She’s been chosen to receive a sculpted chocolate man picked personally by Eros to fulfill her romantic and sexual needs. While other women would jump at the offer, Julia is torn. It’s been three years since she lost her beloved Jorge after twenty-five years of wedded bliss. How would she explain a chocolate man to her six kids? Anteros is carved perfection, luscious, and gorgeous with a surprise for her. He loves books and discussing history, he backs away when she feels a loyalty pull to her lost husband, respects her devotion to family. Time and patience pay off as Julia slowly opens her home, her body, and her heart.

APPLE CINNAMON SWIRL: Abby grew up in a military family, her father and grandfather served, so when the time came she enlisted without reservation. Then, her back was broken in an IED attack. Her Humvee was thrown sideways, killing her friends and leaving her to learn to walk again.Repairing her body took months, her limbs regained their flexibility through yoga. What did she have to offer, now? Abby gave everything to her job, being sent home at the end of the day to an empty house reminded her of lost friends. Trixie wagged her tail making her laugh, but it wasn’t the same. Then Viviana showed up at her house to tell her she’d been chosen. Her sister put in the request to help her ease the loneliness.Galen watched Abby before he inhabited the body of the statue to learn about the woman he will love throughout her life. He sees a tough warrior in need of unquestioning devotion who will resist him. His admiration for her sacrifices opens a doorway to her pain making her push him away. Galen didn’t take this assignment lightly, he’ll wait until she offers her heart to him, no matter how long it takes.

HOT CARAMEL PASSION: Ava’s skills as a chef took her from private celebrity chef to owner of Miami’s hottest new restaurant. Shy since kindergarten, she expressed her passions in the kitchen. Loneliness lowered her shoulders as the accolades faded at closing each night. At thirty-three, she was still single, preferring a crowded kitchen to a man across a small table. Her brother signed her up with Viviana, owner of The Candy Man Delivery Service. She’d been appalled until he showed her the picture of Viviana’s man, Adonis. Her anxiety quelled each day by a furious work schedule then ran rampant over her mind as she tried to sleep. Exhausted and shaking, she opens her condo door to find Marcus with caramel colored skin, dark hair, and intense brown eyes. He helps her bloom as she experiences complete devotion for the first time in her life.

DARK CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT: Alicia ended a lucrative modeling career to get her MBA. Trying to find work in a crowded job market discouraged her as the men she interviewed with wanted a stripper instead of an employee. Fellow model and friend, Susie, watches the light fade from Alicia’s light brown complexion and puts her name into contention for a Candy Man.Refusing to be discouraged, she decides to start her own modeling agency. Susie’s pregnancy announcement gives her an idea. An agency for models who are pregnant. Clothing lines need faces for maternity wear and the fashion industry hasn’t exploited that niche, yet. Her family, in town for Christmas, is fully supportive.There’s just one complication, she’s been chosen for a Candy Man. She’s not sure her dreams can come true with a statue. Would her family accept a man who started off as chocolate? Can Vangelis tempt her to stay home with him or will she pull her Dark Chocolate Peppermint man into the chaotic modeling world?

Name Merging – Rane Sjodin back to Graylin Fox

GFAuthorDaringAvatar

In a continuing effort to simplify my online life, I merged the Graylin Fox and Rane Sjodin websites. I’m now taking another step and going back to using Graylin Fox as my only pen name. The Candy Man Books will remain Graylin Rane. 😉 But the Arcane Court books, in mid-design change now – will be Graylin Fox books soon.

One name to organize them all…

Florida Supercon 2015 Pictures

Here are many of the pictures I took at Florida Supercon. It was held at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Many thanks to Chelle Olson (Literal Addiction to Detail – Owner), Erika Hayden, and Brandon Timothy for the entertaining days, including the 1.5 – 2 hour commutes each way every day. We were very sleep deprived and giddy on Sunday nights drive home.

Paperback Pricing

I’ve updated the prices on all paperbacks. Here is why: I use Createspace, the Amazon distribution for paperbacks. They set the prices. Yes, you read that right. They set a minimum price for each book depending on length and distribution channels.

The top image is when I chose Expanded Distribution (sites other than Amazon). I make $4.57 per sale out of $14.99. Amazon keeps the rest.

 

Screenshot 2015-05-24 08.28.22

Here you can see I make  $1.57 when I eliminate everything but Createspace and Amazon.com. To try and keep the price down, I’m adjusting all of my paperbacks to the cheaper option. I hope you understand why. The changes should hit Amazon.com this weekend.

The Great Convergence

After close to two years of having two websites, two facebook accounts, and two twitters for my pen names, I’m merging them.

Graylin Rane – Paranormal Romance short stories – The Candy Man Delivery series has been  very popular. Seriously, who doesn’t like carved chocolate statues?

Graylin Fox – Urban Fantasy – and anything that doesn’t fall in other categories.

Rane Sjodin – Dark Urban Fantasy – The Arcane Court books (and novellas, and short stories – basically if Rane wrote it, it’s set in the Arcane Court world).

Hopefully, with only one social media author page on FB, Twitter, Pinterest, and so forth.. I can manage them more easily.
