Starting a newsletter subscribers list.

If you're a new author or even if you've established your author brand but haven't started a newsletter yet than this might help you.

(Before I really get started on all the helpful stuff, I want to point out that I don't have the longest subscribers list in the industry nor am I claiming I'm the best at building them. This is just an account of how I built my subscribers.)

I was a year into my career before I even began to start a list of subscribers. Let's call this mistake number one. The great thing about building an email list is there's really no wrong way to go about it, so other than wasting a lot of time, I still have a solid list of people who actually like my books and buy them on a regular basis.

First things first, though. Picking an email marketing site.

Mailchimp, madmimi, and mailerlite are a few that I know about. I'm sure there are others. I don't know if one is better or worse than another. They all have their pros and cons, so yo…

What's with that Roguefalls Series?

Image
Get all the inside information, including when Book 3 is coming out.

Humans and Paranormals have known about each other and have adapted to a way of life that doesn't always work for everyone. With limited choices and forced seclusion, everyone is looking for a better life, including human and rogue soldiers.


I finished the first draft of the fourth Roguefalls series. I'll be rewriting that closer to the end of the month and submitting it to my editor. There's not much I can say about that book without giving away the plots of the first three so I'll just post the blurbs and release dates of the three before it and leave it at that for now. I'll have a definitely release date on Roguefalls 4 soon and will update you on that.

What I'm working on

Image
Just taking a moment away from Saint Lakes 5, to let you all know what I'm working on. So yeah, Begin Again is the Fifth installment in the Saint Lakes series. I'm almost finished with it. Without giving spoilers, I can tell you that the story is Ramsey, Saint Lakes' Alpha, and Fane, a very ill vampire shifter who was rescued in book four by Angel and Forrest. He was in the vampire prison for being feral.

The over all series plotline heats up in a big way in this book.

I'm shooting for a mid-August release date but if that changes at all I'll definitely post something on social media for sure. I'll post a blurb soon, so look for that. The book will be available on Amazon and be included in the Kindle Unlimited, along with all the other Saint Lakes books.


If you haven't read the Saint Lakes 1-4, what are you waiting for?

One thing Dylan does have going for him is his ability to follow his instincts.

Forrest lay down on the cement floor of a small shed. Luckily for Forrest, the shed had seen better days because a piece of the wooden siding had a break in it, which left a small hole for Forrest to see out. Angel looked around as if he were carefully observing his surroundings. He narrowed his eyes, looking pissed off. He also looked like that best thing Forrest had…

Cut scene with a giveaway.

Can you guess which series this cut scene is from? Comment below for a chance to win a copy of the book.

(Please note, the following scene is large unedited so there could be minor errors)

As coven leaders went, Nicolono was considered young. Angel wasn't sure what his exact age was but he knew Nicolono was nearing two hundred years old, which made Angel's own forty-five years of living on the earth feel like just a drop on the timeline of living. One of the reasons he chose the coven was because he thought Nicolono's younger age gave him a modern outlook, which was important to Angel because he was gay. Some of the older vampire leaders took issue with a coven member being gay. They clung to the old ways of thinking. The wolf shifter Alpha in his old village might have been accepting of all paranormals joining his clan but not the gay ones, which was why Angel had left in the first place. Angel had been right about Nicolono being accepting. Unfortunately, that's where N…

When his mother’s illness gets to be too much, and he has to put her in a nursing home, rediscovering himself turns out to be harder than it seems.

2016 in Review - Elfing Around

Image
This year I wrote a little holiday story involving an Elf and a bear shifter. I had a lot of fun and was lucky enough for it to be one of eXtasy Books stocking stuffers. It’s still not too late to hang on to some of that holiday spirit with some fun reading! Book cover image here It’s all fun and games until someone finds their mate.
Kailu learns two things in less than a second. One is that more than just elves live in the northern forest. The other is that elves and bears shifters can be mates. Who knew? He didn’t, until he literally ran into his big bear shifter mate when he and his two brothers were simply hunting for a Yule tree. With their vastly different cultures, Kailu finds out that his mating isn’t exactly a Christmas miracle.

2016 in Review - The Journey of Jimini Renn

Image
I’m honored to be a part of the Rainbow Awards this year. I’m excited to say that The Journey of Jimini Renn is a Rainbow Awards FINALIST. Rainbow awards finalist image here Book cover here In a world without surface water, Jimini Renn wants nothing more than to live inside the protective walls of Adam City for the rest of his life, but his little brother has other ideas. 
As far as Jimini is concerned, Adam City has everything he needs. It has a well that provides much-needed water, food, and safety from the dangers of the outside world. When his bookworm of a brother leaves to chase waterfalls, Jimini must follow even though he knows it will probably mean his death. His chances of survival are grim when the first person he meets on the outside pulls a gun on him. No one who calls himself a slaver and has a gun has Jimini’s safety in mind, even if he is sexy. The journey Jimini expects isn’t the one he gets.

2016 in Review – Demon Elite

Image
2016 in Review – Demon Elite First of all, let me just say how grateful I am for all my wonderful readers. I had a great time writing story for you all this year!
Demon Elite Series

The Demon Elite series has nine books total, eight of which came out in 2016. The last one will be released on January 13th, 2017. I’ll be talking about this book in future post so be sure to look for that.

In the first book, Crash Morgan falls for the criminal, which causes him all kinds of problems, including potentially losing his job on the Demon Elite team.
In the second book, Webb has to save a feisty little redhead named Liam. Liam is not so sure Webb is trustworthy and he’s not scared to let Webb know it. Poor Webb has a crushed pride before the dust settles between them.

Cosmo is great at getting into any locked door. When he’s assigned to break into his biggest crush’s home, he’s just a little too happy about it. Too bad Derek Kyle, the crush, thinks Cosmo is a criminal in need of some jail time.
