2 series makeover and new pricing

So, two series got total makeovers cover wise. I've got a few ideas as far as adding some books to The Spirus series, but I'm not writing anything in that series right now. The Mauve series, I had to put the book away and write something else when a bunch of Nazi shitheads made the news running over people with cars and it ended up taking over the plot. Mauve is to be continued and the Spirus is in the future.

The Spirus series is also being updated with new pricing. I've lowered the prices on all the books. The first book is LONG. I'll admit that, but the next 3 are shorter, so I lowered the price.

So, let's see some covers! I decided I was over the comic theme I had going with the Mauve series and wanted to go in another direction. It is technically a comedy series, but Mauve is still learning to be a bad ass secret agent and I have her journey mapped out as they move towards catching The Arm. I wanted to show more of that on the covers. I put the Origins short story back to the original photo instead of the one I turned into a techno comic book cover and found totally new images. Check it out

For the Spirus series, the original covers were just book characters, but I decided to change it to a fire theme. The ability to wield fire is limited to the ruling family and only 2 living people until the mysterious girl shows up in the first book with all these strange abilities. So, check out the new covers for the Spirus series and if you are so inclined, the new pricing should be updated soon or they are also on KU if you were interested in reading them

Flash-A Death Story giveaway

Flash-A Death Story is live on Instafreebie for giveaway until the 17th. Then, the ebook will be live on Amazon. The paperback should be up shortly. I have a momentary burst of temporary insanity with the paperback, but that's resolved now.

Flash was expanded from a short story and deals with body switching, reincarnation, soul mates, and all sorts of fun afterlife theories I came up with. I took the ideas of angels and demons and their various incarnations across different religions and turned it on its head. I also created an entire new species in the war against good and eveil

Flash is a little paranormal, a little horror, a little medical thriller, and was a whole lot of fun to write. I'm already working on the sequel and have already gone pretty dark.

ANYWAY, if you want to read it, it's there for download. All I asked is that maybe leave a review when you're done?

Upcoming releases and re-releases

Flash-A Death Story will be rereleased, bigger, longer, uncut. That's right, I turned it into a full length novel. I've got everything done, I'm just waiting to hear from the last 2 beta readers to see if there are some changes I need to make

I also agonized over the cover and made about 100 different versions before deciding on one I liked. I ended up in font Narnia for a while, but I like the new cover. One of my betas said she hopes I write a sequel and I've already had an idea in the back of my head for another book that may work with what I've developed with this story line.

While I waited on feedback from betas, I also went through and re-edited and reformatted Salome so that it looks more like my other books. I also totally redid the cover. My intention was to run an Amazon ad for it like I have running for 2 other books. Apparently, I was able to buy my new vibrating girlfriend, Madge, off Amazon, but you can't actually buy an ad and advertise books with sex. Amazon is oddly prudish about certain things. Like, you can sit with us, but not if you wear your hair in a ponytail more than once a week or something.

#Freebiefriday and book giveaway

Today is Freebiefriday on my Amazon page. Feet of Clay is free on Amazon today. I went to some dark places in this book, so if you don't like that, you might want to skip this one.

The giveaway for The Flight of Crowgirl is ending on instafreebie on 8/31. New subscribers to my mailing list will get a link to download the original Crow Girl

Also, this cover for the expanded Flash is giving me fits. My beta readers appear to be on Team Decorative Font and so do a few designers. A lot of authors tend to be on Team Blocky Font. For the record, I'm on Team Decorative font. Which team are you on so I can get more confused and drown myself in Jameson?

Flash-A Death Story is getting upgraded

Flash-A Death story is getting upgraded from a short story to a full length medical thriller. I just started writing last night and it should be live within the next few weeks. If you've ever read one of my books, you know I take a lot of care with the interior and graphics. I couldn't start writing last night until I had found proper graphics, redone the title page, decided on a font, and I've already redone the cover this morning.

FLASH-a Death Story will be rereleased with an expanded plot and a new cover sometime soon, but here's a peek at the new cover

Flight of Crow Girl release and Audiobook take 2

So, trying out new things promotion and release wise. The Crow Girl sequel, "The Flight of Crow GIrl" will be released in paperback as soon as createspace sends Amazon the file. For now, it's Free for download on instafreebie. Also if you sign up for my newsletter you will get a welcome email with a link to download the original Crow Girl for free.

So that's done. Now I'm going back to attempting to record an audio book after being busy with that all day. The first time I attempted this was my last day off. I was rearing and reading to go and attempted to record for hours. Stepped back, took a break, and joined a facebook group for ACX narrators and got some help.

Now I'm back on my day off again. I've got my headset on. I've got Audacity pulled up. I've got the manuscript pulled up.......and I"m feeling like a total knob for sitting here talking to myself.

I should probably get up and eat something since the calories I have consumed since I woke up came from coffee and coffee creamer. I'll probably need some Jameson too.

Then I'll have to record a little bit at the end of the book thanking Jameson and Kerrygold for making the booze and cheese that got me through recording this audio book.

I DO have several books posted for audition on ACX that need accents I'm not sure I can do or a male narrator. I should, in theory, be able to record this series myself, since I've been performing in some capacity or the other since I was 7. I've done live theatre, sang solos, DANCED solos, done monoloques, etc.

Maybe I need to bring my laptop to starbucks and perform this audio book for everyone there. Maybe what's missing is the audience. Do you think they would ban me if I made it entertaining and kept buying frappucinos while I was there? Even when I get to the part in the book about the botanist with a foot fetish? Maybe they'll even let me stay when I start talking dick pics? Startbucks is pretty liberal, right?
