Smolder to KDP

GF_Smolder

Good morning,

In order to keep testing the sales avenues that work best for my titles, I’ve pulled SMOLDER’s eBook so that I can put it into the Kindle Direct Program and make the title available in Kindle Unlimited by Thanksgiving.

The paperback will remain available throughout.

Cleansing and Organizing

You can't beat this morning view.

You can’t beat this morning view.

This month I’ve been simplifying my life. Actually, it started a couple years ago, but I’ve kicked it into gear.

I’m moving at the beginning of next year, and I’m downsizing. I don’t need the excess furniture, or rooms that are rarely used. I had much less stress in my life when I live comfortably in a one bedroom place with a great view. I’ll be going from a 3/2 to a 2/2 (I need one room for bookshelves *koff*) with a beach view (all hail Florida – yes, I love the odd).

I used ThredUP to donate some of the better handbags, totes, clothes, and shoes that only took up space. I can’t walk in heels anymore. I wear size 5 – it’s a challenge on my best days.

Today, it has taken a turn toward my writing life. I’m donating blank/empty journals and notebooks. I have clients who love to write (they don’t know what I do on the side) – one is 10 yrs old.

I feel lighter already. 🙂

**AUTOGRAPHED PAPERBACK**

My cabin sits near a portal to the Otherworld. The Dark Fae are sending ogres to kill any humans who survived the plague they unleashed a year ago. First a baby dragon, then a goblin, show up looking for me. That’s when the fairy I’d known for a year decides to tell me I’m an elf and my high school boyfriend runs the Dark Fae. I went from human with a bad breakup to a fairy tale creature that was still in love with a killer in three days. A trip through the Otherworld portal shows me my birthplace and dangles the promise of a happy ending I thought was gone. Confronted with true evil, I have to learn my ice magic while fighting for my life. With rekindled love and a new family to protect, I’ll have to battle a psychotic elf with lightning power. One bolt and I’ll disintegrate. One of us won’t survive.

Re-release of Smolder

The rights to my contemporary romantic suspense, Smolder, have been returned to me effective 5/9/15. This book, more suspense than romance, honestly Ella spends more time trying to get away from a serial killer than being romanced by Dimitri, who’s luscious. The romance is there though, and the happily ever after variety.

I’m going to send the book through a round of edits and get a new cover made. Then, Ella and Dimitri will be out there again!

2015 Releases

This year there will only be one 2015 release for Graylin Rane Fox. Around Veterans Day, I’ll release a romance short story. It’s still percolating, but expect a soldier to have a very happy ending.

For next year, though, it will be busy. I’m working on a new series. I’m still in the research phase, but I’m creating a world of Fae, elves mostly, using lore from both Celtic and Norse mythology (I’m half Irish and half Swedish).

Also, I’m working on a gargoyle novel for next year. I’ve also printed out two science fiction stories I’d started years ago. I’m better at fantasy, so I’ll be adapting those and am hoping for 2016-2017 releases for both.

Thanks,

Graylin

 

Contessa coming in Paperback

GraylinFox_ContessaHiRes

In the next three weeks, Contessa will be available in paperback at Amazon.com through Createspace. I’m also looking at the paperback/hardcover options at Nookpress.

The paperback cover is amazing. Thanks to Syneca Featherstone for her amazing work.

The book is in review at Createspace. It will be on sale for $9.99. The reason for the high price, which I wouldn’t hike up if I didn’t have to – is in the graphic below. Amazon insists a book of 366 page be AT LEAST $8.74. In order for me to make 75 cents a book, it’s at $9.99.

Hot Caramel Passion: Coming Soon!

Hot Caramel Passion is the 5th of 6 Candy Man Delivery Stories. The cover reveal will be October 11th (Saturday) – prepare for smoldering hotness! The story releases October 15th.

Blurb:

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.

Tessa is coming back!

It’s been a long three years for Tessa. We’ve gone through Contagion and Bloodlines but hit a snag with the third book. So, I pulled the first two from publication and reworked it as one complete novel.

Tessa: Princess of the Summer Fae is now through editing. There will be a new cover reveal and release date this week! I can’t wait!

Special thanks to Zee Monodee, a great friend and even better editor who took this project on.

Coming Soon: Red Hot & BOOM!

RHB Logo

Are you ready for 15 fantastic, sexy stories for the Fourth of July? Of course you are.

COVER REVEALS begin soon. Until then, how about a blurb?

My contribution is WHITE CHOCOLATE CHERRY, the third Candy Man Delivery Service story.

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, and respects her devotion to family. Time and patience pay off as Julia slowly opens her home, her body, and her heart.

Mari Carr – Sparks Fly

I Do is the easy part. Happily ever after? Not so much.

Evan and Annie are deeply in love, but that hasn’t stopped tension from creating cracks in their relationship. Determined not to fail his wife, Evan takes action before those cracks become craters, damaging their marriage irreparably. Over the Fourth of July weekend, he’ll reignite Annie’s passion with his own brand of fireworks.

Stand back and watch the sparks fly.

Alexandra O’Hurley – Return to Her

Cheated on and dumped, Cassie Summers feels nothing but relief. She’d stayed too long, and honestly, it was her attraction to her ex’s roommate Mason that kept her hanging on past the expiration date. Mason makes her heart beat faster and her panties damp. Too bad he’s only a friend, as she’s not his type.

Mason Parker’s Southern charm and good looks let him through a lot of doors—and into beds. A protective instinct a mile wide pushes Mason to be Cassie’s shoulder when his roommate skips town, and he has to face his real feelings for her.  Can he find the patience to just be the friend Cassie needs while she gets over her ex?

When Mason’s called for duty and has to ship out for a year, he knows he can’t leave without telling her exactly how he feels. Amid the fireworks on the Fourth of July, they’ll make their own sparks and give in to the crushing need both have for one another.

Rene Folsom – For Liberty

While deployed overseas, his mission classified, the heartfelt letters Maximus writes are the only bits of communication Liberty receives during the year he is away.  Her memories of him, along with a box full of letters, become her most prized possessions—that and the life growing inside her.

It’s not until communication stops, and the scheduled return of her Army hero comes and goes, that Libby begins to freak out.  Her worry for his welfare, along with concern over her current situation, wreaks havoc on her once-solid nerves.

While she’s waiting for his return with bated breath, she clings to hope and remembers the words he once wrote: “A soldier doesn’t fight because he hates what is in front of him. A soldier fights because he loves what he left behind.”  The infamous quote is a constant reminder of why he chooses to fight: For Liberty.

Cassandra Carr – Scorin’ on the Fourth of July

After Mikael signs a free agent contract with the Buffalo Storm professional hockey team, he finds himself agreeing to a part of a charity hockey tournament taking place over the Fourth of July weekend. While there, he meets Terri, the goaltender who recently backstopped the US women’s hockey team to a gold medal. He’s instantly enamored, both by her skill and her beauty, and sets out to learn more about her.

While Mikael has a brand-new life in Buffalo, Terri fears that to be able to continue playing her beloved hockey she’ll have to leave the area, possibly going far away if that’s what it takes to find a professional team willing to take a chance on a female goaltender. She likes Mikael, but fears becoming involved and then having to leave him.

Both Mikael and Terri are facing turning points in their career and must decide if love is worth it or if they’ll leave their passion on the ice.

Jodi Redford – Naughty Girls Do

Lexie Winters is on a mission—to lose her good girl image and tempt resident bad boy, Ash Bodry, into her bed. Tired of being treated like his kid sister, it’s past time for her to play dirty. She has her work cut out for her though when it comes to the sinfully sexy yet incredibly frustrating man.

As far as Ash is concerned, Lexie is strictly off limits. Not only are they friends, her dad just happens to be the sheriff, and years ago the man steered Ash away from a life of crime. No way is he repaying that favor by giving into his wicked fantasies of Lexie. But when the little vixen strolls into his tattoo parlor and requests a very naughty piercing, Ash’s honorable intentions are tested to their limits.

Now that Lexie’s hammered the first chink in Ash’s defenses, and he’s sweating bullets, there’s no chance in hell she’s settling for his hands off policy. Even if it means some flirty strip tease action and late night skinny dipping to convince him that this newfound naughty girl will do whatever it takes to get her man.

Desiree Holt – Firecracker

Dani DeLuca is known as Firecracker, as much for her hot rides as a barrel racer as for her long, luxurious red hair. When she takes first place in the Fourth of July Golden Spur Rodeo she decides it’s time to celebrate with some real fireworks. And who better to create those sparks than Chad Bailey, bull breeder, and Brody Hunters, champion bull rider. Dani’s never experienced a ménage but she’s sure if she did Chad and Brody would be the ideal candidates.

Chad and Brody have been rodeo friends with Firecracker for a long time but they’ve never taken it beyond that. For one thing they didn’t want to ruin a great relationship. For another, they were all too aware that she didn’t play on the circuit. But over some time sparks have been simmering between them, sparks that are just waiting to be ignited.

The two men take Dani to a classy hotel for an elegant dinner and night of celebration. But all through dinner the air around them crackles with sexual electricity and when they give in to the desires gripping them all, the Fourth of July fireworks have nothing on the sparks between Dani, Chad and Brody.
