Good Morning,

I got up this morning to see the UK decided to leave the EU and Donald Trump’s first interview from Scotland included a promo spot for his new golf course.

The world is freaking pear shaped right now. It blows my mind. It shouldn’t… but it does.

Over here in Graylin land, I’m working on the second Contessa story. It’s tentatively titled I Do, But First… It will release this November. If I finish it earlier, I’ll change the date during the pre-order process.

Arcane Court – For those of you waiting for the fourth book Fanged Deception, it will release this December. Each full length novel of this series comes out a week or two before Halloween.

If you missed it earlier this year, I am now an official member of the Horror Writer’s Association. I’m still giddy about that. It’s the first, and only, professional association I’ve joined. I’m hoping to make it to the convention next year (StokerCon).

This fall, I’ll be appearing at the Indie Book Fest in Orlando October 7-9th. It’s a lovely convention, smaller with a lot more interaction. I hope to see you there!

That’s about it for this week. I’ve been swamped at my day job. Which is fabulous and I’m grateful there are people who trust me with their fragile pain so they can heal.

Off to write more fights!

Graylin

**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?

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.

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.

Dark Chocolate Peppermint Sneak Peek

The last of the Candy Man Delivery series for this year. Dark Chocolate Peppermint is about Alicia, a mixed race model who left the glam world to get her MBA.

DFP_GraylinRane_DarkChocolatePeppermint_600x900

 Blurb:

Alicia ended a lucrative modeling career to get her MBA. Trying to find work in a crowded job market discourages her, as she contemplates making a living in a bikini again. Fellow model and friend, Susie, watches the light fade from Alicia’s dark brown complexion and puts her name into contention for a Candy Man.

Unaware of her friends idea for her future, Alicia continues her job hunt. She arrives for an interview only to find the interviewer in board shorts with an obvious erection. Appalled, she runs out followed by his assistant begging for autographs until she kicks him off the elevator.

Humiliated and discouraged, she starts her own modeling agency. Calling friends in for favors helps her with a successful launch. Now, for a man. As she sits in her condo watching the lights dance across Biscayne Bay, her phone rings. She’s been chosen for a Candy Man. Can Vangelis tempt her to stay home with him or will she pull her Dark Chocolate Peppermint man into the chaotic modeling world? Can their new relationship survive the tug-of-war?

 

Excerpt: 
The photographer in front of me grimaced. If he wanted to keep my nipples from poking up, a warmer beach, or maybe a sweater would help. My clenched jaw to keep from shivering didn’t help. I could see the tabloid headlines now, “Spoiled Model Angry in Bikini.”

Modeling sounded like a good idea ten years ago. Just out of college with a business degree, I needed a way to pay for graduate school. Then, the travel schedule kept me from studying. I decided not to renew my contract to get my MBA two years ago. This photo shoot was a favor for a friend. At five foot eleven and a size six, my schedule stayed full. My mixed heritage added color and curves. I stood out in front of a glacier. My mother was dark skinned from Brazil and my father was lighter skinned African American.
Graduation was the following week.

While my entire family warmed up on the beaches of Florida, I stood in Alaska for a cold weather bikini shoot. All five of us shivered until they brought in a huge heater. On this isolated strand of beach with glaciers behind us, the view was gorgeous, for the photographers. What we saw was a line of people in parkas telling us to smile while penguins stood watch.

It was one of the times I thought the public would prefer to see my side. Bikini clad models were everywhere, penguins watching a photo shoot? Now, that would sell magazines.
The thought made me laugh. The camera clicked away.
