I’m delighted to announce that Doctor Wolf is now live! Download it to your kindle here.
A werewolf in London romance.
Liz Jekyll might be the most wanted werewolf in London—wanted for dating, that is—but she doesn’t take it as a compliment. In fact, it’s a wretched nuisance because Liz has a vital secret to hide. What she needs is a disinterested werewolf who could pretend to be her boyfriend.
Carson Erving would be very interested in Liz if it weren’t for Gentiana Aeternae. The botanist werewolf from Alabama has found the legendary Elixir Gentian, and ruthless people will do anything, kill anyone, to get their hands on a plant that can grant an extra hundred years of life.
As danger explodes around them, two very independent werewolves will have to do the unthinkable and rely on one another. But when Liz’s secret is revealed, who will die?
Doctor Wolf is at a special release price of 99c. From May 20, it’ll be $2.99 (although free for Kindle Unlimited subscribers to borrow), so hurry!
I’d love to be at the beach, today. Cool, clean air. But that’s not going to happen! I have an evil headache from hell. I’m hoping to write a bit more of Plague Cult, which is at such an exciting point, however, I have a premonition this headache will defeat me. It sent me to bed yesterday.
Do you hear violins playing? This is a bit of a self-pitying post. Sorry! The headache feels kind of flu-ey. Muscle aches and pains… I do not want to be sick!
Why doesn’t the universe listen when we say, “too busy, I’ll be sick later”?
This is a big week. Doctor Wolf is out Wednesday. I also have a secret project, a group project, that ought to be out this week — it’s been hard not to mention it, here.
Grrr. It’s only 8am, but I think the computer’s going off. I’ll try another coffee, in case caffeine really is magic, but otherwise I think today is a day given over to the headache gods.
Hope you have a better weekend!
Going forward, novels in my paranormal romance series, The Collegium, will be priced at $2.99. Earlier in the year I committed to keeping them at 99c throughout 2016. Demon Hunter, the first in the series and a novella, will remain at 99c. New releases will also launch at 99c as an incentive to buy-buy-buy on pre-order and in the first two weeks. However, after that the price has to be dragged up to $2.99. The reason? Amazon.
I just read someone’s analysis of Amazon’s algorithms and while no one outside Amazon can confirm the analysis (and no one inside Amazon will do so) it is compelling. The bit that caught my attention was that Amazon sinks 99c books in its algorithmic searches.
But! you exclaim. I see lots of 99c books in my search results.
Yes. So do I. But looking at the sales data for my books in the context of other people’s sales data and analysis of their book promotion strategies, I can tell you that pricing the series at 99c is seriously hurting its discoverability.
So, because I like to be upfront about these things, that is my reason for reluctantly increasing the price of novels in my Collegium series to $2.99.
Doctor Wolf is currently 99c on pre-order before its April 27 release, and will remain at 99c for a fortnight after it.
My internet connection has been reliably unreliable for the last few days, but I’m hoping it’s finally fixed. While it’s working, I wanted to share a few things.
Firstly, I have a new Reader Satisfaction Survey for my paranormal romance series, The Collegium. This series is the focus of 2016 for me, so anything I can do to make it better is vital.
Secondly, Plague Cult is on schedule for its June 2016 release. Shawn, the hero, insists on surprising me and everyone, but he will not be allowed to affect the publishing schedule!
Third … I’m organising amazing new covers for The Collegium series, so stay tuned for awesomeness via Lou Harper, soon! The very first cover will be for Plague Cult. I am very excited about this.
Fourth, Doctor Wolf is available as a pre-order ahead of its April 27 release. I don’t know who can resist a werewolf in London romance! And a botanist-werewolf hero? *swoon*
Fifth, I would really like to hit 500 likes on my Facebook author page, so if you’re on Facebook and haven’t “liked” me yet, would you mind? Thanks!!!
And that’s it! I hope you’re well and enjoying Autumn/Spring — it seems it’s hayfever time no matter where we are in the world 🙂 Atishoo! and happy reading 🙂
I’ve included my collection of short stories, Dare, in Patty Jansen’s super-duper Free Science Fiction and Fantasy promotion this weekend. If you’re looking for a few new (and free) fantastic reads, join me in my one-click frenzy!
I have a new avatar! I’ve never been comfortable with my own photo as the way people recognise me online. I loathe having my photo taken. Flinchy-time then seeing the photo when I blog, Facebook post or tweet. So, I’ve gone with a simple avatar that kind of, happily reminds me of Scooby-Doo 🙂
This is the new me!
