One of the things I adore about being an indie author is that I get to help feed your reading addiction by offering free and discounted books now and again. If you haven’t yet read Highland Fire, now’s your chance to start this new series for FREE. It’s available at all vendors (U.S. only for now – so sorry!), including Amazon, B&N, iBooks, Kobo and GooglePlay.
If you loved my Highland Brides (the first book in that series is also FREE – grab The MacKinnon’s Bride here), you’ll love the Guardians of the Stone series. In it, we revisit old characters and meet new ones, and I’ve added a little extra something in this series – a bit of Highland lore and magic.
So be sure to grab it while you can!
I thought long and hard about whether to speak up about this. I’m doing so, not so much for me, but for my fellow struggling authors. So here goes: Generally, I’m not a fan of complainers, and that includes authors who complain about people not buying their books. No One is guaranteed a sale. We bravely go where not everyone has thrived before us, in order to bring you stories we love, and that we hope you’ll love as well. In the end, you want to believe it’s the talented among us who’ll keep readers coming back. But sometimes, bad guys do win, and lately, the winners have been the stuffers (thankfully, Amazon is now going after them), who’ll throw a poorly written and edited book up for .99 cents. And, of course, they end up getting much more than that because they’ve learned to game the KU system by double-spacing books (making it look like you have more pages to read than you do) and stuffing a download with 10-plus books, thereby earning themselves considerably more than the .99 cents price, as well as KU bonuses that used to be awarded to hardworking authors. These days, the bonuses seem to be going to “the fox who’s learned to raid the hen house without getting caught.” For real authors with integrity, this is a HUGE ouch—and not only where the money is concerned. It’s demoralizing for those who work hard and play by the rules. It’s no wonder some authors are furious. (more…)
Shhh… don’t tell on me. I’m supposed to be editing, but instead, I’m getting excited to share my latest release with you.
After two long years away from historicals, I’m so thrilled to be returning to the genre I love. A few years ago, I considered giving Malcom MacKinnon a very short novella because I thought he’d be pleased with that. But I’m sure you’ve heard the Muse can be particularly insistent at times (and even annoying). So I tried to pair Malcom with Sorcha, and nope, he wasn’t having it. Finally, he showed me exactly who he wanted, and took me to a great new world. The Daughters of Avalon series begins with The King’s Favorite, due to be released June 26th, 2018. (Nook readers stay tuned for some special news!)
I’m so excited about this new series for many reasons. For one, if you love that rich historical detail that’s such an intricate part of the Guardians series, you will love this one even more. I will take you deep into the anarchy of King Stephen. It’s an amazing time to tell a story within, because so much happened during this twenty-year period in British history. (more…)
I am always being asked about the reading order of my series books. There are 3 series that are connected, so I spent a few minutes this morning creating a reading order document for The Highland Brides, The Guardians of the Stone and The Border Brides. You can also find the reading order here on this site, but this one is a little more comprehensive and includes the new series. Enjoy!
P.S. For a limited time, grab Highland Fire for .99 cents at all vendors. This sale is good for this weekend only. Grab it here!
