Let’s have some fun!

Hi All,

For those of you on Facebook, I’m going to create a Facebook Group for Stephani. There’ll be excerpts, cover reveals, a teaser here or there, reviews and anything else we come up with.

But in order to do that, we need a name for the group!

So far we have Stephani’s Cubs (her being a momma bear and all) but I’d love to hear your suggestions.

The suggestion we decide to go with will win a copy of Assassin’s Loyalty 2 when it’s released (yes, it has been written but that’s all of the information you’re getting for now *wink*)

Suggestions need to be in by this Friday (17th) so that I can work my magic over the weekend 🙂

Oh and I will be drawing the winner for The Virgin Incubus later this week so stay tuned!

LS6 – Ruthless Pursuit – Re Release Out Now!

Amazon
Smashwords

Blurb:

For Panther shifter Vapor, nothing is more important to him than his feline coalition. A true soldier, he has never let them or his leader, Mitchell, down. So when he’s given his latest assignment, he doesn’t think twice before accepting it, even if it is to track down Mitchell’s youngest brother, Andrew, and bring him in. This isn’t going to be a regular rescue mission, since Andrew is a wanted fugitive and Vapor will be taking him back to face charges for crimes against the coalition. Still, Andrew is young and inexperienced so Vapor knows the mission will be a snap—or at least he does until Andrew shows him otherwise.

Before he knows it, Vapor has been shot with his own gun, arrested by the human police and his favorite car is blown up. Andrew is behind every humiliating incident, too. Things climb to a whole new level of embarrassing when Andrew seduces Vapor, then leaves him naked and handcuffed to a fence. Vapor vows that he will track down the brat and make him pay, not just for his prior criminal activity, but for each degrading encounter. As Vapor gets closer and closer to capturing his prey, he finds himself falling for Andrew. Then when Andrew runs to him, instead of away, Vapor finds he has to make the hardest choice of his life—his coalition or the man he loves.

LS5 – A Wicked Caress – Re Release Out Now!

Amazon
Smashwords

Blurb:

Noah endured a year of harsh captivity by the Ravens before finally being rescued by his fellow feline shifters. Scarred in more ways than one and traumatized, he’s trying to settle into a new life with the family he never knew he had. Too many bad memories and fears are making the transition less than easy, however. Even though his siblings claim to care about him, Noah feels that because of his haunted past, he’s unworthy of their devotion.
Only one thing brings him any sense happiness, a tiger shifter named Seth. The problem is, Seth is the complete opposite of Noah. A soldier in every sense of the word, he’s strong, sexy and honorable. Noah knows the other man is out of his league, so he vows to keep his feelings a secret.
Then one day Seth offers to help Noah learn how to defend himself. Even though Noah knows he should refuse, he agrees. His driving need to not be weak anymore and his deep feelings for Seth make the temptation too much to resist. But in getting closer to Seth, will Noah be in danger of losing his heart?

Et tu, All Romance eBooks

Et tu, All Romance eBooks?

As many know, the year has been tumultuous in the ebook industry. Several publishers had to close their doors and authors were left scrambling to find a home for their books. Then something happened this weekend. It wasn’t a normal “this publisher is closing and running away with all the authors’ money,” either. No, this was a different kind of “fuck you.” One that hurt just as much, too. What is this thing I speak of you ask? A book distributer who is blatantly offering publishers ten cents on the dollar for royalties earned during the last quarter? What?????? You are all probably asking yourselves. Well, let me explain it to you. Or at least, try my best.

I would like to state that the material I am basing all this on is still new and unfolding, so things may change. What I am stating here is in no way set in stone. I am basing this on my email exchanges and haven’t talked to Lori in person. Now enough with the legal babble, baaack to the explanation.

For the layperson to really understand this, I will have to make some comparisons that are very basic, business wise. Even though it was online, we all need to look at All Romance as a normal brick and mortar store. Like say, a grocery store.

Now say a large name coffee company went in, stocked the store’s shelves with all kinds of yummy coffee. Their customers LOVED the coffee and gobbled it up. Yet, when it came time for the store to pay the coffee company for their product, the store manager just shrugs his shoulders and says, “I’m sorry, I don’t have your money, despite the fact that the customers paid me their money, it just vanished somewhere. I wish I could have told you this yesterday, but I just found out on Saturday. I know!!! We were surprised, too. Finding out financial information on a bank holiday!!!! Even more so when it’s squeezed in-between Christmas and New Years. Who would have thunk it? Don’t worry, though, we can pay you ten cents on the dollar. But, if you agree to take the little amount, you can’t sue us later on for the rest. But, that’s okay, we can still be best buds…right?”

Now, imagine the look of the coffee distributor’s face. Would he be smiling? Or would he be as mad as hell and wanting to know who in the hell took his money and spent it? Guess what? When it came to me, I was the latter.

I told ARe that I was not agreeing to their terms. Game on!

But, things get worse. They, also, told me that I would not be getting ANY royalties on Opposites Distract. The one book I had published through ARe. You see, because a couple of years ago they decided to branch out into that area, as well. If I refused their offer of nothing and a promise to never sue them, then they would give me the rights back to my book. If I refused? Well then, they would just bid it off to the highest offer. When I saw this all I could think of was, “Damn, Daniel. You really are saying this shit and expecting me to buy it?”

Even worse!!! (Yes this turnado continues to grow) ARe is only staying up until the 31st of this month. That only gives readers hours left to download their entire library. With everybody rushing to site to do this, the site keeps crashing. I hear that some readers had thousands of books there that they could lose.

Now, I know you’re all saying, “Surely, this can’t get worse?” My first response is, “Stop calling me Shirley.” Then I will tell you that ARe was pushing us to promote their Boxing Day sale and that they sold out on advertising through 2017. Here comes the real kicker…are you ready…they had sent out an email advertising this sale only a few days before they announced they were closing.

Are your heads spinning yet? Because, I have to admit, my head was going all Exorcist-like when I found out. I may have even projectile vomited. Although, that could have just been a sneeze, too. I have been battling a nasty cold.

ARe, also, gave people only this limited time to use up their ebucks. Some of which the poor readers had received as Christmas gifts. Because, nothing say, “Ho, Ho, Ho” more than screwing people over. They, also, took pre-orders on books. What will happen with those, I have no idea. I can only hope that ARe pays back both the people that pre-ordered books and took out ads. Time will tell.

As you can probably tell, I am not a happy camper. I promised my daughter a naked cat, braces, clothes and food. Plus, I have to support a millennial! Do you people have any idea how expensive one of them is? They drain you dry.

For my readers, I love you all dearly. I will find other outlets to buy my books. Shane, the Lost Shifters, the Assassins and the new YA Lost Shifter series will survive. Oops…didn’t mean for that last one to slip out.

Now, if you will all excuse me. I will get back to what I do best, write and drink wine.

All Romance Ebook

Blurb:

An outcast among his own kind, Rat has always withdrawn from others and lived life by his own rules. Rejected and shunned so many times, he’s resigned to the fact that he’ll always be alone and nearly convinces himself that he’s happier that way. That all changes in one instant when he receives a call from a Lost Shifter named Keegan. Scared and on the run from Ravens, Keegan is in hiding, and Rat knows if he doesn’t go rescue the man, he’ll be dead within hours.
What Rat doesn’t expect is to fall instantly in lust with the Lost Shifter as soon as they finally meet. That’s the last thing either one of them needs or wants, though. Not only is Keegan still adjusting to the fact he’s a shifter, but there’s also the fact he’s the feline leader’s younger brother. Which means the man is off limits. But as they face more danger and get closer, Rat knows he’s powerless to fight his growing attraction to Keegan. Will Rat finally be able to let go of his past to embrace a future with his new lover, or will he forever be destined to live life alone?
