It's HERE!

Cursed & Coveted gets its debut - and ON TIME.

Despite the delay due to my proofreader and editor having been taken ill a couple of weeks back, (I'm happy you're better, Cassie!), Cursed & Coveted got finished and is now available via Smashwords and Amazon for a debut price of only $1.99 (as promised)

That's a bargain for a 124,000 + word, 336 page (paperback) novel!
But this price won't be up for long
so get your copy at this debut price before it goes up!

I'm also currently waiting for got approval from CreateSpace that the paperback version manuscript has passed all tests, and I have already ordered copies for the
Cursed & Coveted Giveaway 
that will start at the same time as the
Spring Fling Blog Hop 
(April 3, 2014 - April 6, 2014 ~ see button to your left).
The Spring Fling Blog Hop will have a dedicated post here that will
also offer you a chance to win
$70 in a Barnes & Noble or Amazon Gift Card!

Yep. I designed it from scratch. :-)
It has been a long time in coming and I'm absolutely happy with the final result.

I have tightened the writing and added scenes that really needed to be added (thanks D.C.!) so that there was a nice and smooth flow of the story. As mentioned in my previous post, Cynthia Artemis at Bitten by Romance will review the ARC of this story and I can't wait to see what she thinks!

I'll also be doing a paperback + matching bookmark giveaway via Goodreads later this month (April 2014) and will be giving away three signed copies.
As always, international participants are welcome!

So keep an eye on the blog and sign up for updates so you'll always be on top of the latest. Which reminds me, I need to update the description on Cursed & Coveted's dedicated page...

{as always, this blogpost can and has been revised/updated}

Thanks for dropping by!

Due to illness, new release date of 03/31/2014

I'm sorry to receive word from one of my editors/proofreaders, Cassandra A.P., that she's been very ill and because of it, was unable to work on the Cursed & Coveted manuscript.

To be fair to her, aside from her studies, she's also gotten the longer segment of this very long manuscript, and although she's been incredibly busy working very hard on those last five chapters, she had gotten a very bad cold (with fever) and just couldn't find the time or energy to work on it and to get it to me on time.

Therefore, I've had to postpone the release of my latest novel, Cursed & Coveted, until March 31st, 2014. Cassie has assured me that I will have it on time so that I can make the changes and add the last five chapters to the already formatted book manuscript.

Cassie, thank you so much for willing to work so hard for so little. You and D.C. have done a fantastic job so far and, of course, your work on my previous titles is just AMAZING. Lots of huggerz from your immensely grateful friend and I hope you're feeling better. xoxoxoxox

I have already designed a new Header for this blog with the new release date, as you can see above. I apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have Cursed & Coveted released as soon as I possibly can.

GOOD NEWS! Cynthia at Bitten by Romance has agreed to read and review Cursed & Coveted. She always gives an honest review and I'm looking forward to reading what she thinks. :-) Thanks so much for accepting the request, Cynthia Artemis!
