Herrick now on Smashwords!

The ninth Vampire Morsel, Herrick, is now available as a free read on Smashwords.com.

Short Story. Not for children. Part of a collection called Vampire Morsels about vampires from the Amaranthine universe. Takes place during Shades of Gray (the full length novel also by Joleene Naylor). Herrick’s unrequited love for the mortal Caroline has left him on the fence. Should he take his friend’s advice and reveal the truth to her? When tragedy strikes, his mind is made up for him.

It’s still pending approval for the extended distribution, but once it is approved it will filter through to Barnes & Noble, Kobo, etc.  Oddly, Elsa is STILL pending review, too. 

Jesslynn will be next up on Smashwords, I need to have it proof read and get the cover done, and I am hopefully going to write Nirel this week. I know, promises, promises.

  1. Hopefully can proof for you

    • hee-hee, yeah, you know me and my wild typos :p i swear if i could type I could have a million books done by now!

  2. I waited three weeks for approval once. Sometimes they just get flooded.

    • Yeah, I submitted Elsa just as all the site updates were going in so I have now resubmitted her – see if that helps 🙂

  3. Great to hear you have another one out! There’s no reason why your books won’t get approved for distribution. 😀

    • Yeah, it’s just a matter of waiting, though i tried to redo the cover art book and am getting an epub error – ugh!

  4. Alright, one more out! You know I can’t wait for Jesslynn.

    Three hearty cheers for angry vikings!

    I think it took me about 4 weeks for the last set of books to get through the proofing process at Smashwords. Business must be good if they’re that bogged down.

    • yeah, I know – I think I read somewhere that they only have four people doing it all, too. Those poor people must be so overworked, LOL! I bet they never sleep!
