A Whirlwind Week: New Release, Book Tour & Contests... Oh My!
It was a wild week as my newest book was released on April 1st. One of the most exciting parts of this release is that the book is available in both ebook and paperback, making it my first printed book! So, the celebration feels endless as I tour around the world wide web for two weeks giving away books and talking to readers.
This past week, I visited Celeste Jones to kick off my tour. We talked about coffee and the connection Aubrey and William make over this nectar of the Gods.
Then I whizzed over to talk with Natasha Knight, author extraordinaire and also a beta reader for the book, about Dom behavior. Some might think William is manipulative but I'd just call it being a dominant. Read the excerpt (by clicking on Natasha's name) and tell us what you think.
Next, I raced across the globe to stop in at Renee Rose Romance to discuss being fed by your lover. Read an excerpt where William feeds Aubrey and see what you think. Would you let your lover feed you?
I popped in and out with the Eclectic Writer where we talked about Aubrey overcoming her feelings of inadequacy before I headed off to visit with the Ndulgent Bloggers at Guilty Indulgence where we focused on William and wondered why it is that he has so much confidence in Aubrey despite her own feelings of inadequacy.
Whew! Then it was off to see the women of Happily Ever Afterthoughts to discuss how YOU would feel in Aubrey's shoes, meeting a Dominant for the first time and agreeing to his proposal.
And finally, today I'm on Open Mic at Wicked Romance. It's a little nerve-wracking being on stage!! But we're having some fun talking about the things we do for me, particularly w-a-x-i-n-g that place. Would you? Could you? Do you? You can read an excerpt of Aubrey's first spa experience.
THESE CONTESTS ARE STILL OPEN SO STOP BY THESE BLOGS AND COMMENT.
NOW through April 15th, I'm giving away one ebook each day - that's fifteen chances to win. See the tour schedule here (I'm with some other great authors) to stop in for a chance to win.

Aubrey has been hurt in the past, discouraged and degraded by a heartless father. Still, William sees something in her that won't allow him to walk away. Instantly drawn to her but intuitive enough to take it slowly, he courts her. Then he bargains, persuades and seduces until he ensnares Aubrey with his commanding nature. He’s everything she ever needed but never had the courage to want for. Despite the fight she puts up in accepting William's lifestyle, the bonds he places on Aubrey give her a freedom she desperately needs. Together, they heal old wounds and find their perfect love.
In book two (Heal My Soul), William gives Aubrey a kitten. Of course with everything, William has an ulterior motive in using it to help heal Aubrey. Help me name her little kitten.

It's a week when my cup runneth over. So much good is happening, I'm savoring the moment. In the midst of my first self-published book debuting, I got the most wonderful news that I'd been chosen as the VIP Blogger of the Week at AuthorsDb.com which I'd featured on a previous edition of WWoW. So I'll say it once again, this is a great database to get your name on if you're an author.
