Yesterday I finished the round of edits so I could ship Accidental Death off to my editor for proofreading and junk. Then I went to the convenience store and bought a half-gallon of overpriced ice cream, two bags of chocolate covered stuff (raisins and peanuts) and two Choco-Tacos. That's how I roll, baby.
Now I have a boatload of other stuff to concentrate on - cover stuff, marketing stuff, newsletter stuff, etc. But I'm cool with it. Life as a self-published author and all that. It means you have to do all the things a publisher would normally do without the hassle of them telling you how you should do it. ;o)
It can be a hassle, but it's still more freeing than drudgery, so I'm cool with it.
If you want any more information about the upcoming release of Accidental Death, please sign up for my newsletter. I expect a maiden voyage on that thing May 1st.
Now, for the series recommendation thing. As you have all probably guessed, I love Silver James like a sister. And not just because she writes awesome novels - which she totally does. Today, I'd like to recommend to you all her Moonstruck series.
It's sexy supernatural romantic suspense action adventure political intrigue. Yeah, that's a lot of genres there, but Silver rocks them all. You see, there are these werewolves who work for the government in a secret military group - well, until the government screws them over and then a clandestine agency is tracking them, and another super-sekrit company tries using them for experiments. It's wild. And in each individual book, one of the Wolves finds his mate for life. So, the intrigue and the action and explosions are woven tightly with a romance plotline. (Yes, there are explosions. Woohoo!)
Silver manages to wrap each book up by the end and provide us with a happily-ever-after for the main characters of the book, but still leaves a thread so the books all tie together into one cohesive storyline. There's fun stuff and happy stuff and shocking stuff and heart-rending bits. Silver hits her readers with the full gambit of emotions, but she doesn't let them down.
And... What? You thought it couldn't get any better? ... Well, she's getting ready to release a new series about Wolves - with cameos from the Moonstruck characters. This time, they're biker Wolves. And they kick ass. They're the Nightriders MC. I've seen the cover for her first installment - Night Shift - and it totally rocks So keep an eye on her page for updates as to when that will be out. Sometime this month, but not sure of exactly when.
