Be sure to check out my second guest blog on Daily Dose of Decadence. I was there again promoting my erotic romance short story, Right Here, Right Now, and talking about sex in hotel rooms. I had that ‘Do Not Disturb’ image added to my post. When I saw it, I knew it would fit well with my story. If you haven’t read it, you can buy the e-book on Decadent Publishing’s site or any of the retailers on my Books page.
Cobblestone Press will be re-releasing my short story Eros, My Love in e-book on February 15th. I can’t wait to put the story back out there. I really hope sales are better the second time around. I’m still waiting on news about the cover.
The editing for Eros, My Love was completed today. I’m glad my editor didn’t find too many errors and I didn’t have to change a lot of things in the story. I did add some things that weren’t in the original version. Now I’m waiting for the cover to be designed. I can’t wait for that! Just as an FYI, my story was inspired by the Greek myth about Eros and Psyche. I enjoyed reading about their love story and I wanted to write my own short modern story with Eros. For anyone not familiar with Eros and Psyche, here’s the Wiki page.
A few minutes after I posted about Decadent Publishing rejecting Love Addiction, I received an acceptance email from Cobblestone Press for Eros, My Love. I’m so thankful they took an interest in my short story and will give it a new home. I’m looking forward to working with them. They want to release Eros as part of their Valentine’s Day releases next month, so we’ll be going through the publishing process fairly quickly. I already signed the contract and sent all the required documentation back to them. As usual, I’m anticipating what the new cover will look like. I’m an amateur graphic artist so book covers really interest me. Now I only have one story left to get published. I hope one of the five publishers I queried are interested in Love Addiction. It would be amazing if I could release 3 books this year!
Well, Decadent Publishing wasn’t interested in my short story Love Addiction, so I sent query letters to five other e-publishers. I wanted to give Decadent the chance to review it first before I shopped it around since they published my other short story Right Here, Right Now.
