Snippet Saturday? Let's go the full monty!

A week or so ago I asked my Tweeps and Facebookers how they’d feel if I released “Castaway 3″ earlier than the proposed Monday, July 22 date and they were, hmm, fairly gung-ho on that idea. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to do it because of RWA, edits, and not having the cover art in, but miraculously the stars aligned and everything came together all at once.

So I figured, what the heck. :D In appreciation for taking so long this time, the latest part is ON SALE AT $.99 until next Wednesday, so better hurry! All I ask is that you pretty-please remember to review: let me know what you think!! This is the penultimate chapter of “Castaway”, and with only one part left (with no cliffhanger book endings this time!) the story is winding down (while winding up to its climax! …no, not that one lol).

As always, enjoy!!!

Secrets are revealed in the thrilling third part of the Anything He Wants: Castaway series!

Every action has its consequences, and the day of reckoning has come. Jeremiah Hamilton is not a man inclined to forgive, and a broken-hearted Lucy is left shattered and desperate to get back home to her mundane life. There, she can nurse a broken heart and try to go back to normal far away from danger.

But the promise of safety is an illusion. Someone has marked her a target as surely as any Hamilton male, and believes her to be their key for revenge against the family. There is nowhere Lucy can hide, but her help comes from a most unlikely source.

With lives on the line, can they outwit a predator who is constantly one step ahead of them?

The New York Times and USA Today bestselling series continues in the explosive sixth part!

Enigmatic billionaire Jeremiah Hamilton plucked twenty-four year old Lucy Delacourt from an existence spiraling down into darkness. Seduced and brought into the extravagant lifestyle of the rich and powerful, Lucy was swept up into the highest highs, and experienced dangerous lows, but always there was her billionaire protector. Safe in his arms, she thought for sure her life had finally found the right track.

Until she couldn’t hold back saying those three little words, and found out how fragile her new position was.

Her affections spurned by the man she loves, the dejected young woman is kidnapped from Jeremiah’s home and discovers more about another facet of the Hamilton family legacy. Lucas Hamilton, known in darker company as Loki, is an arms dealer and Jeremiah’s brother. He needs Lucy for his own purposes, but makes it no secret that he wants to get back at his brother any way he can for stealing the family empire. Dangerous outside forces seem intent on taking the proud and wealthy New York family down. But what will broken-hearted Lucy do when her new captor sets his sights on seduction?

No matter what happens, Lucy’s life will never again be the same.

*~*~*~*

I have to say, self-publishing has its upsides and downsides, both of which are often part of the same coin. On Friday I uploaded the stories to four of the major retailers: Amazon (Kindle), Barnes and Noble (Nook), iTunes/Apple (that actually went up on Thursday), and Kobo. I’m super excited that most of the sites had the story up earlier than expected, but unfortunately a few are taking their time. Apple/iTunes is notoriously difficult to get through in a reasonable time frame; I’m hoping to be live there by the end of the month. Amazon/Kindle have requested I prove my copyright before they’ll publish the story; this wouldn’t be so bad if 1) this wasn’t a weekend, and a holiday weekend to boot, and 2) I actually knew HOW to prove copyright on a new, not-previously-copyrighted story! … I’m still hoping Amazon will figure it out quickly based on what I’ve sent them so far and get it published by tomorrow.

ETA: AMAZON IS LIVE!!!!! Woohoo, guess they’re actually working around the Irish Day celebrations!! :D :D

PLEASE DO NOT POST SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION!!! I promise that tomorrow, the official due date, I’ll do a full-on spoiler threadfest here on the blog where you can scream, cry, laugh, and commiserate on events in the story. Until then, any such comments will unfortunately be screened by yours truly so folks won’t have the story so far ruined. I also ask that, if you leave any reviews, pretty please don’t spoil anybody else’s experience! *hugs*

Okay, off to freak out more about Amazon and poke at Kobo to get them live today too. I’ll keep you updated on those issues as more news comes available!! ;)

Remember this date!!

Ladies and gentlemen, set your calendars!

Monday, March 18th, the next #AHW serial “Anything He Wants: Castaway” will be released to all major ebook retailers!!!

I just received the first concept cover for the new serial and OMG, pretty!!! Can’t wait to show it off!!

Now to work on the next part, set for an April release. :D :D

Release day

Today was officially the release day for Anything He Wants the novel. After months of writing and editing and waiting, November 27 has come (and almost gone as I write this). Yet now, as the day ends and I reflect a bit, I’m still stunned by that fact. I’m in actual stores, next to other books by authors I read and enjoy.

My mind, she is blown, but right now I feel weirdly zen. I spent all day squeeing and bouncing and boggling at the Amazon and B&N rankings. OMG. Today was an emotional rollercoaster, it like I didn’t know what to think!

A few of you have already been gracious enough to lend the novel some reviews on Amazon, B&N and other online sites, for which I am thankful. Today also ends the free novel contest; it will run until midnight Pacific time tonight, and I’ll compile and choose the winners tomorrow. But… Wow. Wow.

I LOVE YOU ALL SOOOOOOO BIG!!!!!!! Thank you for coming with me on this journey, there’s no way I could have done this without your help and support!! Please know the story will DEFINITELY continue and I appreciate everyone who’s blogged, tweeted, emailed, or otherwise spread the word about AHW’s release immensely. Today feels like a kitten and unicorn all wrapped in one – immensely awesome but more than a little unbelievable.

…okay, I may be a tiny bit less zen now. But thank you, I’m amazed about everything that’s gone on over the last few months and it’s all thanks to you. ***HUGZ***

And because I’m trying to make every post have a picture, here are three of the most adorable pups I met today!

Release day: "Anything He Wants 2: All's Fair"

Release day is finally here!! Thank you Amazon for putting it up in near-record time (they were a little slow with updating over the weekend). Enjoy! :D

Seduced then coerced into a job as “personal assistant”, Lucy Delacourt has all but signed her body over to CEO Jeremiah Hamilton, promising to do anything he wants. Now she’s Paris-bound and determined to resist him and the diamond-studded world of the ultra-rich.

Jeremiah isn’t interested in forcing Lucy to obey a simple contract. He knows exactly what he wants: his new assistant’s complete surrender. A man used to getting his own way, Jeremiah won’t hesitate to do whatever it takes to sway his assistant and Lucy finds, to her horror, that the price she has to pay might be something she secretly craves.
