Ties of Blood is now on the Nook:
Funny story, though.
So last Thursday I mailed Smashwords, about why the book was still not up a month later. They answer promptly and said it would likely go out next week (yesterday) and would take two weeks after that to show up. At that point it was another three weeks, so i said “forget this!” and joined pubit and uploaded my first book directly. Here’s where it gets funny. Because of my annoying hyphenated name (it seems like a good idea, ladies, but it’s’ not. No one is equipped to deal with it.) My account was pending until Wednesday, when it was approved any my book began processing. Today, it is published – and now for the hilarious part – meanwhile the Smashwords version magically showed up and is also there! Ha! So there are two identical versions – one through pubit and one through smashwords! Insane, I know. But anyway, it;s there, so I guess that’s what counts.
Anyway, go get it for your nook!
of course you can also get it from:

The fifth Vampire Morsel is now up on Smashwords as a free read!
“Short Story. Part of a collection about different vampires from the Amaranthine universe. When most people think of vampires, they think of blood, night and stalking prey. But sometimes vampires just want to relax and play a game of poker. “
Bethina will be next on Smashwords, as soon as I get a chance to do some editing, and I should be posting the rough draft of Herrick soon.

The third installment of the Amaranthine series is now available in paper back.
Right now you can get it from the very cool CS estore – https://www.createspace.com/3661748 – Amazon is coming next.
I’ve had a few people ask me about Barnes & Noble, and I have to admit I’m a little frustrated when it comes to B&N. I have been happily letting Smashwords handle my distribution to several places (Kobo, Barnes & Noble, etc) and they’ve always been prompt, but so far nothing. I inquired about why the book still has not shipped – one month after publishing – and was told that it will ship this week or next, which means another two weeks after that before it will show up at Barnes and Noble! I’m not very happy about that. Best case scenario is two more weeks, making it six weeks since I published – meanwhile my dashboard says it shipped to Apple on the 17th of September. If it can ship to apple why can’t it ship anywhere else?
This is the first time I’ve had trouble with Smashwords distribution, but if it doesn’t ship soon I’m going to go through Barnes & Noble myself.
Okay, enough of the bad stuff! Go check out the estore – even if you’re not buying a paperback – because I am rather proud of the wallpaper (yes, I get custom wallpaper!) And while you’re at it, why not go check out the other two? They have cool wallpaper, too!
