I have great news to share today. I just accepted an offer from Decadent Publishing to publish my second short story Panties Optional. I’m so excited! They currently have a book called Panties Optional by Stephanie Beck, so I decided to change my story’s title to Right Here, Right Now. As I mentioned in a previous post, this is my last short story. Now, my second novel The Howling Heart is all I have left to get published.
Author and screenwriter Anastasia Blackwell posted a list on her blog from surveys of popular romance forums for Most Dangerously Jealous, Obsessive, Possessive Alphas in Romance Novels. My Tristan from A Rose to the Fallen made the list. According to her, “Crazy in love, jealous, obsessive, possessive males make intense romance heroes.” Well, Tristan’s friend Marco doesn’t call him a “psycho Brit” for nothing, and his brother Jake was spot on when he called him out for being obsessed with Bridget. I know the list is in random order, but it’s nice to be #1. She also mentioned Tristan last month in a list for Top Ten Jealous Alpha Males in Romance Novels. Yeah, I know Tristan has major issues. I like to think of him as a flawed diamond—beautiful and perfect on the surface, until you look inside and see all the ugly imperfections. I love my beautiful, flawed psycho Brit, and wouldn’t write him any other way.
My short story Eros, My Love will be released on 9/16/2011 in e-book. There’s a product page on Summerhouse Publishing’s website that includes the synopsis and an excerpt. I asked my publisher what other retailers will sell my e-book, so I know what buy links I need to add when I update my site. I’m pretty sure Amazon will be one of them.
