As with everything in life, things come out better if you take the time to do them right the first time.
Now that I've decided to publish on Smashwords, I've had to reformat every book to fit their specifications. This is absolutely fine, because I know that I'll reach a lot more readers this way. Their books go out to Sony and Apple and Kobo as well as Barnes and Noble and Amazon.. It's just time consuming.
I've had to put aside writing Book Six to do it, which ties me up in a non-creative knot. I love spending time with my characters every day, and even though I'm back in Book Two, Stalked, at the moment, I'm editing and not writing.
However, I'm also working with a wonderful book cover designer, Tatiana Villa. You can see her first design for Rebirth on my home page. Here's a link to her website in case you're a writer and have a book to cover. http://tat-94.wix.com/viladesign She's professional, reasonably priced and extremely patient with me. Thank you Tatiana! I've had to pull my adult paranormal book, until she can design a proper cover. However, my Rogues Shifter books come first.
And because I'm changing the covers, I'm also changing the price. The books are still extremely reasonable and once I have at least three covers up, I'm going to offer coupon discounts through Smashwords. It's a great site, check it out.
So I'm officially apologizing to you for pushing the date back on the release of Book Six. It will be done as soon as I have a chance to dedicate the hours necessary to do justice to Jackie and Garrett's tale.
Here's a tiny Book Six Spoiler: Jackie's with Isaiah in the Demon Realm for some of the book, which irritates Garrett and the fae. Plus Charlie is five and already beginning to shine. And there's so much more... :0)
