I still haven’t received my paperback proof of Exposed from CreateSpace. They usually take a day or two to ship it out to me but this time, according to UPS, it’s both supposed to arrive today and it hasn’t been picked up from the location in the States yet. How can it be both? Heh anyway… it’ll get here soon and once I’ve read through it again (which I’m looking forward to), it should be good to go at Amazon. I’ve also got a signed paperback giveaway here at Goodreads and I’ll probably be doing another giveaway for my newsletter subscribers (once I actually finish writing this month’s newsletter).
Thanks to everyone who’ve reached out to me to tell me how much they enjoyed Exposed :D (I’m thinking of asking Michael Ferraiuolo to voice the audiobook because I love his accents) and yes, promise it won’t take so long to come out with my next book. Nose to the grindstone, I swear ;)
And finally: Are you looking to save some money while simultaneously giving to a good LGBT cause?
KEBB is offering BOOK BUNDLES – at a discounted price – with all the proceeds going directly to The Trevor Project to help their efforts towards crisis intervention and suicide prevention in LGBTQ youth. Bundles of like reads (such as M/M, M/F, BDSM, Taboo, etc.) have been packaged together and are being offered at well below market prices.
(pssst… my Better the Devil You Know is bundled with Joseph Lance Tonlet’s The Brothers LaFon, Kora Knight’s Kríe Captivity, and Joseph Lance Tonlet & Louis Steven’s Quillon’s Covert for fivebucks! Holy shit!)
“KEBB will be offering BUNDLES to their readers – at a discounted price – with all the proceeds going directly to The Trevor Project. Bundles of like reads (such as Contemporary, BDSM, New Adult, Taboo, etc.) will be offered at well below market price. For example: If 4 books would regularly sell for $20 we might offer the package at $10.”
So, a little over five months ago, I contacted Amazon to ask them about the ban on Better the Devil You Know. Basically I asked if the faux pas I committed was categorizing it under “erotica” when it really should be under “horror”. I got a form letter reply back saying that they would look into it and not to ask again about it.
I didn’t think I would ever hear back, honestly.
Then, yesterday, I got an email from someone there saying that if I put only under “horror” they would accept it.
There’s a new site in town: Queeromance Ink is a directory of LGBTIQA romance and related books, with links to purchase them from a variety of other sources, including publishers, distributors, and in many cases, the authors themselves.
