science fiction/futuristic myths & gods erotic romance

BLURB-

Raised in the temple by servants and trained daily in sacred technology, the godlings lead a fiercely competitive but pampered lifestyle.

Those who are fast, precise, and aloof are worthy of the GODs' continued attention. Those who fail mysteriously disappear. When an aging GOD-Node must be retired, everything changes.

Thrust into close quarters with members of the opposite sex for the first time in their lives, Julee and Staphan's un-GODlike desires may set them up for failure.

Or maybe it will free them to reap rewards beyond their wildest dreams.

NEW ART!


UNEXPECTED DADDY, coming 7 Oct 2014 from Phaze Books!

BLURB-
When twenty-six-year-old Joey Beirs is summoned to the emergency room one evening, the last thing he expects to find is that his twin brother and Jeremy's wife have both been killed in a car accident, leaving him an UNEXPECTED DADDY to his newborn niece, Abby. Closing in on the end of his leave from work, Joey has to find suitable childcare for Abby. After yet another interview turns south, Joey is accosted by homophobic bigots and saved by Geoff Allread. 
 
Geoff is in his forties, an out-of-work carpenter whose unemployment is running out, soon to be faced with working in fast food or retail to keep food on the table in the recession. He's also late to come out of the closet, a wounded man that has lost everything by admitting what he is... including his daughter from his ill-fated marriage. Geoff is good with kids and adores Abby. It's a match made in heaven. At forty-three, Geoff needs a job that doesn't mean asking if someone wants fries, and Joey needs someone that's good with Abby. But can both of them overcome their hurts and accept that the age difference doesn't matter as much as finding what they've both lost... a stable family?




DREAM MEN, coming 19 Dec 2014. Available now for pre-sale at Fireborn Publishing.

BLURB-
When Emily receives an invitation to The Fantasy Club, she doesn't question who arranged it or what the fantasy is. Back in college, Todd and Kyle were both intent on her. They were even willing to share her to have her, but Emily wasn't comfortable with that idea. Neither was she able to choose between them. She's been dreaming about them for years, but is she brave enough to grab on with both hands and not let go this time?

Welcome to this sneak peek into The Fantasy Club!

Science fiction erotic romance
Available from Phaze and Mundania!
NOTE: Print copy includes CROSSBRED SON, which has only been available in ebook so far.

Raashh was Daahn’s second in command, a powerful Grea elder, now head of a nest of his own. But his nest is missing one essential detail; THE FOUNDING of a nest requires a female to fill it with children. When Rayn and MacNair bring Marie to him, Raashh is convinced it’s a joke, but the tiny human female proves to be more than a match for the elder.

The humans are restless, and it’s not safe to be Xxanian on Earth. When Daveed Raashh hires a new designer for the Spice clothing line — a human female designer, both of them know it’s not smart to get involved. But the heart doesn’t follow the head in THE BUSINESS OF LOVE.

A tragedy at birth left Arren Raashh a SUBDOMINANT SON in a nest full of Dominants...always lesser, always looked down upon. A chance meeting with Zondra Duncan brings something into Arren’s life he never expected, a human woman looking for a man who will never cheat on her. Sandy doesn’t mind that Arren is a Subdominant, but can they mend a lifetime of scorn from his family and reunite a broken nest?

Wolf shifter crime erotic romance
eBook available from Fireborn Publishing – print available from CreateSpace and Amazon!

When the pack murders or is murdered, it's up to Tragen's Enforcer to punish the guilty. When the situation involves both, and the survivor is the future leader of the pack--who has bonded to a human female, the Enforcer's job has become the headache of the century.

Jen is a child advocate, burdened by a tragic past. When she's called in for a little boy discovered, alive but suffering amnesia, in the midst of a massacre involving attack dogs, little does she know her life has taken a turn into the shadowy society of the wolves.

Adrien is Tragen's Enforcer--the police force, judge, jury, and executioner of the local pack. From the moment he hears the news reports, he knows he'll soon be hunting his own for endangering the peace between wolf and human. But nothing could have prepared him for Jen, the daughter of Andrew "Lion" Verik. Or for the fact that the young survivor is not only a wolf but also a Keif, the future leader of the pack.

A Keif sees the future, as if it was fact, but his enemies will stop at nothing to kill him before he can take power, even if it means going through Jen and Adrien to do it.



Coming next Tuesday from Phaze Books, in ebook!



Fantasy/Greek gods erotic romance
Coming 12 August from Phaze Books in ebook!

All's Fair in Love and War. It better be. When a grudge match between the gods of love and war catches the next generation in their battle, sparks will fly. But they won't be sparks of anger.

Five millennia ago, Davon -- Horseman of War, son of Ares -- insulted Eros, God of Love and Lust. Young and headstrong, Eros decided to teach Davon a lesson about his own nature. Until the young horseman can embrace the god of love with affection, he will be impotent. Such a loss for his lovers.

While Davon cannot stomach the idea of embracing Eros with anything but his hands around the other man's scrawny throat, Love will eventually find a mate and produce heirs that Davon might have a chance of liking, despite their parentage. After all, it is Love's nature to do so.

When two strange men who don't show up on film save Khrystal from a mugger, her life takes a turn toward the strange. Considering the fact that her mother is a psychic who is completely besotted with her husband, a man that left them two decades earlier, saying Khrystal's life has become weirder is saying a lot.

New place to get my free reads and self-published work!

Since Fireborn Publishing needs to build up their catalog a bit during the soft launch, we've put some of my self-published works and free reads up there. In the sake of fairness, we haven't added the free reads that are attached to a series for sale somewhere else, but we've put up all the rest, I believe. 

If you want to check out the site, visit it at this link.


02 August 2014

Fireborn Publishing has officially launched!


UPDATE: Our sale site is FULLY FUNCTIONAL (as far as we know...fingers crossed that we don't find errors we haven't caught yet!). We have launched!

We're still working on the site, so you'll see changes coming through.

1. We've fixed the zero balance issue we were having. You can now check out with a zero balance.

2. We put up the gift certificates and tested the system, including sending GC money to another person. It's a very different system than I've used before, but it works beautifully. When you buy GC money for someone else, it will appear in your total within 24 hours. You can then choose ANY amount of that total to send to another person.

3. We haven't tested it yet, but we've added a "save for later" feature to the cart system.

4. The pre-fab information pages that come with the store system are not working correctly, so I added all the information about terms and conditions and such to the FAQ page we've built.

5. We're working with Amazon to add Checkout by Amazon as a feature on our site, for people who absolutely hate using PayPal. We may add a third option as well, but we want to start with those two right now.

KEIF'S PACK IS A BESTSELLER!

Keif's PackAReBSKP-Print  



OMG! Keif's Pack was up on ARe for ONE DAY, when it made the site-wide bestseller list. In less than 48 hours, it jumped to #14 on that list. I am so excited. It's live now on ARe, Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Coffee Time Romance, and B&N Nook. And, of course, it's also live in print on CreateSpace and Amazon.

25 July 2014

UPDATE on the Keif's Pack eBook release!

Okay... The hosting service is still dragging on the SSL, but I promised readers they could buy Keif's Pack today, and I won't be made out a liar, because someone else is slow on the draw. I've loaded Keif's Pack to all the distribution Fireborn already has set in place: ARe, Amazon Kindle, B&N Nook, and Kobo. They take varying amounts of time to be live for sale there, so I think only ARe is live at the moment, but ARe has almost all the formats (and a sale price for the next week). And, of course, the print copy is live at CreateSpace. As soon as the SSL is in place, I'll put the word out for people who want to buy from the Fireborn site. Thanks for being patient.

24 July 2014

NEW PRINT RELEASE!

Well, we're still working on the SSL to be activated on the Fireborn Publishing site, but in the meantime... Since print books go through CreateSpace's cart and not FBP's cart, Keif's Pack just went live on CS! As soon as the SSL is activated, we'll take the ebook live on FBP's site and start distributing it.

Kindle Unlimited?

So...someone asked me if I was going to jump on the new Kindle Unlimited bandwagon, and I decided to share my opinion openly. And that opinion is? Since you have to put the book in Select, it's really no good for authors...or readers, in general. Sure, it's good for a select group of Kindle owners, but it's not good for the rest.

You see, Select requires you to sell the ebook NOWHERE else, not even your own sale site. I'm sorry. KDP is ONE SITE. It's a big seller, but cutting off all my other sale sites, including my own, where I make MUCH more money per sale, is not going to happen. I tried it once...long ago, and I proved it doesn't work well for me. What you gain from Select does not make up for the lost distribution and sales percentages from cutting off all your other sites. Hate to say it this way, but I have two other distribution channels (BESIDES my home site) where I make more money per sale than Amazon gives you. I have an established audience who expect to purchase my books at certain sale sites. Forcing them to all go somewhere some don't want to is counterproductive to me, and cutting off other distribution is counterproductive as well. From that POV, it is not good for authors/publishers to include themselves, in general. It's okay if Amazon is all you do to sell, but if it's not...

Additionally, KDP is one format (well...two, since Mobi and PRC work natively on most Kindle units, Amazon's format is just juiced up Mobi, since they bought the Mobi platform, and PRC is just another form of Mobi). I sell my books in 9 formats, to appeal to a wide range of readers. All the numbers I have say there are three MUST-HAVE formats that account for well over 90% of ebook sales (Mobi/PRC, ePub, and PDF). The other forerunner is HTML, but I choose to offer the lesser-known formats as well. If the book isn't available in ePub, PDF, or the lesser formats, there are a lot of readers who simply will not buy it. In fact, there are some who will purposefully pirate it, if it's not available where they want to buy and in the format they want to buy it in.

Amazon's mindset seems to be... "If it's not available on Amazon and isn't available in our native format (that we own), it's not worth reading." I'm sorry, but I cannot agree. The point is to be accessible to as many readers as I can, not to cut my chances of that and cause readers to be disgruntled.

So...no, I will not be engaging in this service.
