The Prince and the Omega is now available for pre-order – at a special price!

Whew! It’s been a whirlwind of a few days, compounded by linkage fail on my part. But the BIG news is that The Prince and the Omega is now up for pre-order on Amazon – and I’m trying something new by giving it a special pre-order price of 99 cents for the next few days. (I’ll kick the price upwards on Thursday, and then again the day before release, so lock in your sale price now!)

The Prince and the Omega

Rowan’s not royalty – and that’s fine by him.

Omega Rowan Thornton has never been so glad he’s not considered royalty. Especially since his best friend Princess Celia is stuck bonding with a foreign prince she’s never even met. Celia’s solution? Ask Rowan to flirt with someone, anyone, during her engagement ball so she can live a romantic entanglement vicariously through him.

Well, that’s what best friends are for, right?

Gus is royal to the bone – and it’s never bothered him before.

Prince Gaspar – better known as Gus – isn’t the type of alpha to fall in love at the drop of a hat, or at the staged farce of a romantic ball. He’s agreed to an arranged marriage because it’s his duty – not his desire. When his half-brother suggests he take a last chance at having what he really wants before getting tied down to a foreign princess, Gus has no intention of following through… until he meets the handsome omega commoner with the adorable smile.

It’s not like Gus is going to lose his heart or anything, right?

It was only a single night – but the consequences could be greater than their lifetimes.

Gus and Rowan both know that a lifetime spent together is impossible – but for a single hour, they just don’t care. One night of giving into their passion has consequences neither of them anticipated… but will it dismantle the fragile truce between their countries? And will one courtier’s jealousy end up destroying everything they both hold dear?

The Prince and the Omega is a stand-alone m/m mpreg omegaverse non-shifter romance with an HEA ending. It has secret passageways, loyal friendships, garden labyrinths, and a prince in disguise.


Creating the .mobi and .pdf files has been the bane of my existence this week – I feel like every time I insert the links and save the file, despite checking and rechecking, when I go back to the completed .mobi and .pdf, all the links have switched around. (So if you click on the Amazon link, you end up on Goodreads. If you click on Goodreads, you end up

Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.

on… well, also Goodreads, but the main page and not the book’s page.) And just when I finally get it all straightened out… the links refuse to show in the KDP Preview, but they exist in the PDF copy!  ARGH. I have NO idea what I’m doing wrong, but half the time when this happens, it all works out perfectly the following day, so I’m going to try again tomorrow.

Beyond that… it’s going swimmingly here. I’ve got a few ideas for the next couple of books – and even a sequel to Omega Nanny in mind. (Cameron and Desmond really do deserve their own happy ending, after all.)

But in the meantime: yay for pre-order week! Go get your copy now!

I’m so excited, guys – I’ve been wanting to write a Christmas story forever, and it’s now LIVE on Amazon Kindle!

(That was a terrible joke. I’m very sorry.)

Happy Endings abound, the guy gets the guy, and it even ends with Christmas lights ablaze. You will not regret reading this.

A Christmas Surprise!

It’s official… I’m going to publish a Christmas-themed story next week! I’ve been trying to write something since August, and I’ve discovered that it’s really difficult to write something for one holiday when you’re on the other side of calendar. But after November, I needed something to cheer me up – and for some reason, writing a flirty, funny, sexy little Christmas story about two guy who fall into love fit the bill exactly.

A Christmas Caroling is with the betas now, and I’m tweaking a few things here and there. I’ve also been scurrying to get all of the other details that go along with publishing a book set – such as writing the blurb, setting up the Goodreads entry, and ordering a cover. I was thinking I’d give premade covers a try this time – but it’s surprisingly hard to find a Christmassy cover that features two guys. WHO KNEW. I ended up commissioning a cover from Amourisa Designs, and I couldn’t be happier with it. Look at my men! Look at the pretty Christmas lights! Look at the gorgeous font for the title! I love it.

The last thing alpha Rudy Mitchell wants to do is spend the evening caroling with the local community center – especially since he’s been paired up with the omega dork wearing the ridiculous Christmas sweater. But when the omega is injured during their walk, Rudy’s protective instincts kick into gear – and he finds himself singing a whole different song.

Omega Harry Chen just wants a little Christmas cheer before he leaves on a six-month-long apprenticeship on the other side of the world. He doesn’t plan on falling on some black ice… or falling in love with his caroling partner. Now Harry’s half a world away… and wondering how he’s going to tell Rudy about the Christmas surprise neither of them anticipated.

When Harry’s apprenticeship is over – will Rudy greet Harry and their surprise with open arms? Or will next Christmas feature solo acts only?

A Christmas Caroling is an alpha/omega non-shifter mpreg romance. It features horrible Christmas sweaters, beautifully painted glass bottles, and an HEA ending.

it was nice to write something so quickly like this – the story’s much shorter than anything else, somewhere around 22,000 words. Light, sweet, sexy, and a guaranteed happy ending all around.

Of course, the tricky part is getting all the pieces together… especially since I’ve recently become enamored with Yuri on Ice, a Japanese rom-com anime about a male figure skater and his male coach falling in love. It’s adorable. It’s my first foray into anime, and I’m absolutely loving every minute of it. I highly, highly recommend watching if you haven’t already! Just be sure you don’t have any projects due, it’s kind of addictive. 🙂

I don’t have an exact release date just yet, but I suspect it’ll be toward the end of next week. It’s such a sweet little story – I’m sure you’re all going to love it, and Rudy and Harry, as much as I do.

The Country Alpha is out!

It’s official – both versions of The Country Alpha are available for purchase on Amazon Kindle! Each are priced at $2.99, or if you’re a Kindle Unlimited subscriber, you can read them both for free!

I couldn’t be more pleased with the early reviews already coming in:

tca_m-m3

“I love this book!…  I got trapped by the story, felt in love with the protagonists and I actually devoured the book. because I simply couldn’t. Put. It. Down.” (Five stars on Amazon!)

 

“[The] storyline keeps the reader turning page after page to see what happens next.” (Five stars on Amazon!)

“Veronica and Jake are both well thought out characters, and we spend enough time with each that neither feels like a plot device in the other’s story. Their journey was engaging enough that I had intended to only read over breakfast and kept going until I finished it.” (Five stars on Goodreads!)

It’s been such an interesting journey getting these books ready for release – and I’m so glad to finally share them with you. I especially can’t wait to hear what the folks who read both of them think!

 

 

The Country Alpha Cover Reveal!

Out of all the things I’ve learned (and continue to learn) about self-publishing, I think the hardest curve has been with covers. I am not a graphic designer, by any stretch of the imagination. I love photography and in the past, I’ve enjoyed playing around with digital photography to achieve certain effects… but I can’t claim to know what I’m doing. I mean – when I took photography in school, we were still using film. The entire degree program had exactly two weeks of digital manipulation. I didn’t even own a digital camera until about five years after I graduated.

Graphic design? Way harder. It’s my ineptitude with Photoshop times twenty.

Which is why I’m so pleased to reveal the covers for the upcoming duo of books The Country Alpha: Ned’s Story and The Country Alpha: Veronica’s Story. I knew designing these covers would be a challenge – after all, they’re both the sequel to The Country Omega, but they each have their own storyline that takes the main character, Jake, in different (though complementary) directions. I wanted the covers to reflect each book individually – but still echo the other.

And I think I got that.

What surprises me is that they’re from two different cover artists. Ned’s cover was designed by R.A. Steffan, who also designed the covers for The Country Omega and The Omega Nanny. I loved the way that R.A. turned the black-bordered theme on its ear, and went with the snowy background of Jake’s cabin as inspiration.

Veronica’s story, however, was designed by Suze Howe, a long-time friend who asked for the chance to flex her designing muscles, and turned out something I fell in love with at first glance. I feel like every time I look at her cover, I see some new detail, like the heart pointing at Veronica, or the way the hockey diagram blends with the wine rack.

But especially, I love how well the two different covers complement and reflect each other, too – which is good, because I like to think the books complement and reflect each other, despite being two very different stories. And while my intention is that a reader should be able to read either one of them and not feel as though they’re missing anything – readers who read both are going to get a much better picture of Jake than they would by reading only one story.

I’m nearly done with formatting the stories – and some last-minute tweaks. I still haven’t picked my release date for the books, but I do know it’ll be sometime in November, and I suspect it’ll be simultaneous, unless someone can give me a good reason why that’s a bad idea.

In the meantime, though, I have to tear myself away from staring longingly at Veronica and Ned’s covers, and actually finish the formatting. (Details, yo.)

Have a lovely day, everyone!

The Omega Nanny

Alpha Thomas Whittaker needs a nanny.

Single dad Thomas Whittaker loves work, his daughter, and coffee – not always in that order. Romance hasn’t been on his mind since his mate died six years ago. When his sister hires the cute busboy from Thomas’s favorite coffee shop as the new nanny, he’s just amused.

Until he finds out that the busboy is an omega.

Omega Kieran Corvey needs a job.

Kieran Corvey is newly single, almost homeless – and determined to pay back every cent his parents spent on an engagement that went nowhere. Kieran needs money more than he needs a love life. Being hired to take care of a six-year-old girl is much better than shilling coffee to thirsty and lusty customers all day.

Until he finds out his new employer is an alpha.

Sometimes you find exactly what you need when you’re not looking for it at all.

The Omega Nanny is a standalone Omegaverse non-shifter story with a HEA and mpreg (male pregnancy) ending.

It’s the book I had no idea I was writing… until I’d started writing it.

No, seriously. This story came out of nowhere for me. There I was, happily working on the next part of the Downing Cycle… when BAM.

bam

Just like in Batman.

Thomas Whittaker popped up and would not. Shut. Up. Next thing I knew… I had nearly 40,000 words of Thomas’s story. I added another 25,000 in the next draft, expanding Kieran Corvey’s side of the tale.

I jokingly call this my tropey romance – and it is, it so very much is. I mean… we’ve got a single dad (Thomas) who needs help with his precocious and precious 6-year-old daughter. We’ve got a snarky sister who is desperate to set her little brother up on the eve of her own  marriage. And we’ve got adorable, spunky, wary Kieran – who needs the cash that Thomas is offering, and has been burned in love before.
