Kentucky Indie Authors

I’m very proud to be part of a new group- the Kentucky Indie Writers.

This group developed out of a need for a central area where we could share independent author information. As a career writer, I was frustrated with the lack of information available to those who wanted to self-publish their own work, as were many of the other authors in my local RWA chapter. Thankfully, we have a couple of women who have waded into the deep before us, and they are an intrinsic part of the group.

I hope you visit and surf away with more knowledge to DRIVE your career than when you started. And perhaps you can leave your own valuable insights.

I made a decision the other day. I pulled my book off of Smashwords and placed it with the Amazon Select Program.

This weekend it is FREE!!! But today is the last day!

So far, I’ve had more downloads than any of my other books. I got up to #15 on the free erotica list. I’m so tickled that people actually have my work in their hands and are potentially reading. I know a lot of people just pull books because they are free, but even if only a few read it and leave some kind of feedback, I’ll be excited.

Once the free days are over it goes back to $1.99.

Thanks to everybody that has downloaded it and left feedback on the site. You all are wonderful!

Update

theawakeningsocietybn-300

Well, The Awakening Society has been out 20 days exactly, and it is currently on a free promo. I’ve hit several free lists including #53 on the free erotica list US. UK I hit #29 so far and Germany has been the surprise. #7 free on the erotica list. Thanks Germany!

I’m so very excited that the book is moving the way it is. I thank all the readers that like free books! ;-D

NOTE– I climbed all the way up to #249 overall, and #15 on the erotica list. I was so very proud!

NOT for readers under 18. Contains explicit language and sexual situations.

Tonya Hughes is bittersweet about her last appointment for the Awakening Society. For twenty years she’s done her part to shape the young men of Savannah into lovers any Southern woman would want. But her teaching has come to an end. Unable to continue the line, she plans to ‘retire’ from the Society, after one last Awakening.

To Harrison Walker, the appointment with the statuesque brunette is everything he could ever hope for. Tonya is going to instruct him in the art of making love, and she promises to teach him anything he wants. But when his emotions get involved, will he be able to walk away the next day?

And will she be able to let him?

The Awakening Society is LIVE!!!

I’m so excited! After much fretting and frustration, my first self-pubbed book is live! I can’t thank Donna McDonald and Maddie James enough for helping me out! I owe you girls lunch!

You can find the book here:

This book is a little different, in that I’m allowing the reader to guide Book 2. In the back of the first book are two excerpts for the beginning of Book 2. They get to decide which one they want to see by following the link to my site and voting on the poll I have posted. I’m super excited to see the results!

The Awakening Society

I received the cover for my self-pub I’m going to be putting up hopefully this week. I have to thank Steena at The Authors Red Room for pulling together what I wanted. Check it out.

It’s out for final editing now, and hopefully within the next couple of days, I’ll try to upload it to Smashwords.

I’m so excited!

ALSO! I’m going to RT Chicago this year! I’m flat out ecstatic! Money’s been tight, but when I mentioned it the other day, hubby told me, “Hell, yes you’re going!” So, we’ll wring the money from somewhere.

On the horse front, Kid is doing wonderful. He got a bit of a belly ache the other day, and I think it’s partially from trying to eat his food before the mare gets it. May try feeding them seperately this week.Update- Left the mare outside while I fed Kid and man was she Pissed! Rattling the gates and snorting. Made me glad I didn’t give her anything.
Kid is just a sweetheart. I taped him the yesterday and he’s in the high five-hundreds now. So he’s gained almost seventy pounds in three weeks! Then, when the food is gone, he turns and wants you to scratch his head. Cutie!

Well, off to write. Have a fabulous day! We’ve actually got fire warnings for the area. Huh…

Stuff and New Cover…

Well, I don’t know about you guys, but my winter doesn’t look anything like this screen yet. We’ve been getting so much rain, I’m afraid I’m going to wash down my hill. Not really, but I do get tired of splashing through the mud. I’ve rescued 2 horses recently, and one is very skinny (you can read more about Kid on my blog) and he’s pretty much restricted to the barn while I feed him up. Well, with the way the barn drains, I have to wade through the muck to get to him, and it’s supremely frustrating. I want it to just freeze and be done with the mud.

I’m getting really close to releasing my first self-pubbed romance, The Awakening Society. I just got the cover in, and I thought I would share it with you. I though the woman was very pretty, and exactly conveyed what I wanted in the story.

This is the blurb, unedited-

Tonya Hughes is bittersweet about her last appointment for the Awakening Society. For twenty years she’s done her part to shape the young men of Savannah into lovers any Southern woman would want. But her time has come to an end. Not able to continue the line, she plans to ‘retire’ from the society, after one last Awakening.

To Harrison Walker, the appointment with the statuesque brunette is everything he could ever hope for. A hot woman is going to instruct him in the art of making love.

But when emotions get involved, the appointment carries over into the next day. Will Tonya have the strength to urge him to broaden his horizons?
