So, we’re coming to the end of 2022, and it’s been a very long year. I think we’re all feeling tired and worn out. Things are, mostly, back to normal from the pandemic, but I’m not sure life will ever be exactly the way it was before.
Readjusting to doing things out of the house again, has been stressful for a lot of us, especially since we know Covid is still around.
I’m sure we are all far too aware of how things have changed, how hard everything has been the past couple years, so it’s not something I really want to write about. Instead, I want to talk the fun stuff and my goals for 2023.
I busted my butt this week to get some goodies ready for you.
First! The Krampus Collective Box set is now live, in KU, AND in paperback. So, for you readers who have been asking for the first three books in paperback… this is for you. Tell me that cover isn’t delicious.
Each story is unique. Every book stands alone.
Includes: Daddy Krampus
She’s a thief in desperate need of a strict hand. He’s the embodiment of punishment looking for a mate. They have a year to find what they need … in each other.
He’s the spirit of punishment personified and he’s looking for his mate. She’s a shallow brat with dreams of influencer fame. Can they learn to love each other in just one year?
They aren’t just a pair of hot, dominant men – They are the immortal embodiment of punishment packed into two sexy bodies. When they claim her as their mate, she’ll learn the price of her mistakes one painful punishment at a time.
Next! Lord Krampus Book Four of the Krampus Collective is now live and in KU!
Lord Krampus has never been anyone’s hero… until now.
The moment he sees her, he knows Beatrice is the one.
Her innocence should repel him. Instead, it draws him in. But just because he rescued her, doesn’t mean he’s allowed to keep her. She’s just not bad enough, not naughty enough to feed his hungers.
After a stolen week of dark pleasures, he’s forced to return her, leaving Tris with a choice: spend the year moving on with her mortal life or becoming the naughty girl her Krampus needs.
I’m planning a sale.
I will probably put the first three books on sale in early December. That way the people who have one or two of them can just pick up the singles they need to complete, instead of doing the box set. (Unless you want the box set anyway because that cover is FIRE.)
The first three books will not be available in paperback separately, so if you want the paperback, you’ll need to get the box set for that.
I think that’s all the exciting news for now. I’ll check back in soon and I hope to get at least one serious article up in December.
Hello everyone! I usually prefer to wait until Fridays for new posts but there are too many exciting things going on right now! Lots of news and updates for you.
The first book of the Masters of the Zodiac series, Libra, is now live, and it is in KU for those who have been waiting. It’s not my book. The author is Stella Moore, but I’ve read it and it’s fantastic. It also crosses over with my book, Scorpio, a lot.
Today (September 20th, 2022) we’ll be having a release party for it in the Dirty Daddies Party Room on Facebook. So, for those of you who like to mingle with the authors and hang out, maybe even win some prizes, you can find us there from 7pm-10pm (Eastern).
And my last news of the day! The moderators of Sexy Spanking Reads, also on Facebook, have put together a fantastic new holiday anthology. I’m really excited about this because we’ve been wanting to do one for a couple of years.
The free summer cruise anthology that we used as a newsletter builder was a trial run for this exciting event, which we have been working towards all year.
SNOWBOUND Ten people. Five sexy stories. One unexpected snowstorm.
Welcome to Red Hills Resort, where fine lines don’t exist, and guests indulge in every delight the lifestyle has to offer. Ready for the sexiest getaway of your life? Then come on in.
The new owners of Red Hills Resort have spent a fortune to completely renovate the old ski chalet into a world class lifestyle resort. Ten lucky people have won a contest to participate in the special grand opening events. The invitations have been sent and accepted. The resort is decorated and filled with holiday cheer. Get to know our guests as they find love and explore who they are and what they need.
So, there you go, all the recent news in the author world. I am planning a few more exciting things in the next couple of months like a Krampus box set, I hope, and of course the new additions to that series. I’m really hoping to get two Krampus books in this year.
They are a little shorter and that helps but finding time for more than one has been hard. this year might be easier and I’m already excited about the ones I have planned. And then, since next year is already overbooked… I might just dive in and get started on those projects.
Now, if you’re here mostly for the real-life kink talk instead of the fiction, then this is what’s coming up next: October 7th: Can I Still Be Part of the Scene If I Have a Lot of Triggers and Limits?
I’ve covered this topic a bit before, and not too longer ago, but a recent question had me pulling it back up again for another look. See you soon!
I’ve been sitting on the news about this series for over a year! So, I’m very excited to finally get to talk about it. This is a huge twelve book, multi-author paranormal romance series.
All the books will stand alone, and you can skip any that don’t appeal to you and still fully enjoy the others. It is a shared world though, and there will be crossovers and characters may pop up in multiple books.
As you can tell from the graphic, this is a Zodiac series, with each author covering a different sign. I chose Scorpio because that’s my birth sign. It’s the second to be released and will be out in October.
I had originally had a different post in mind today, and I’ve bumped that until next week because of this exciting announcement… that was intended for last week but was delayed!
I’ve been wanting to put together a box set for the Daddy Takes the Reins series since book four came out. With the first four books being a complete story arc, it seemed like a good time, but I’ve never done a box set before, so I was nervous.
Also, there is an expense to putting this new edition out. New cover, formatting, etc. So, the timing needed to be right. At the beginning of August, I started working on it with the designer, and I got it all put together and ready to go live but… Amazon had some issues with it.
Amazon can be confusing. They have weird rules, which are often capricious and unfair. On top of that it can be hard to reach a real person. Since the series was already published as single books, the combination of the box set triggered alarms. They demanded proof I had permission from the publisher to combine them.
Well, I am the publisher, through Amazon. These books have never been with a traditional publisher, like some of my other series. They have never been published anywhere but on Amazon. So needless to say, proving I had my own permission was difficult.
They should easily have been able to look into my account and see that the person who had published them before was me, but somehow, they simply couldn’t do that.
I ended up having to write a contract between myself and myself, wherein I gave myself permission to go ahead and publish the box set. But when I submitted the contract Amazon kept flagging it and saying it didn’t include information. It listed the info it didn’t include, and every single thing was actually in there. What the heck!
I rewrote it anyway… nope, it now said it didn’t have my names in it, it wasn’t signed, the book names weren’t listed. All of this was in there. It turns out that I wasn’t dealing with a real person, just a bot. And the bot couldn’t read the pdfs for some reason.
I finally got it worked out through a real person over the phone and she was able to refer all my info to a human team on Sunday morning. A couple hours later the box set was live– a week later than I planned to release it, so it’s thrown off my schedule.
But after all of that, the box set is finally here! I’m really pleased with it, and I think you will be too. It combines the first four books of the series, a complete story arc with Sam and Charlie, and a brand new cover.
And you can get it for half the price of buying the individual titles. Everyone loves a good bargain, right?
Daddy Takes the Reins Box Set can be found on Amazon here. It’s in Kindle Unlimited and also available in a monster size paperback too. If you get the chance, please leave me a review. They are a big help in getting my work seen, even if the review is a simple “I liked it!” it helps a lot.
Join me back here next Friday for the post I had to bump: Aftercare Is an Option.
