I've decided to cancel the release of Alexei. I need some time to regroup and recover, and, frankly, dealing with the not so great emails and messages has made this difficult. So Alexei isn't coming out this week or next week. I'm not going to give a release date of any kind either. That's a lesson I've learned the hard way.
Kostya, ALexei, the remainder of the Emma serial, Forged in Silver (my contribution to the Elite Metal shared world), Collateral 2, Past Due, the Ivan sequel, Danila, the Seduced by the Loan Shark novel, Paid in Full, Ty & Vasya--these books will all be released in 2015. They're all in various stages of development (some complete, some partial) or in edits. But--again--no more release dates. If you follow me here or on Facebook or have subscribed to my newsletter, you'll be notified of releases when all links are live and ready to go. I'm returning to the way I started the Roxie indie publishing journey, publishing quietly and without fanfare.
Julie will be continuing the giveaways over the next couple of weeks. We both enjoy hosting them, and I love getting swag into the hands of readers who like to collect that sort of thing. There will also be some new tee designs in the coming months (Connolly Fitness, a Samovar softball team shirt, etc) and probaby some new buttons. We're working out the kinks on T-shirt ordering and also signed books.
I have some free reads I'll share in between releases. The first will be the chapters I cut from Nikolai 2 where Kolya and Vee welcome their son into the world. <----One of my favorite scenes I've ever written.
If you're waiting for a reply to a message or email, I'll try to get through in the next week or two. I also have a stack of snail mail packages that will go out early next week when the Viking makes his mail run.
Finally, I just want to say thank you so much for all of the kind and caring messages of support. You are all just so amazing and wonderful. I ask you to bear with me for the next few weeks. I'll get back on my ususal schedule of a new book or novella each month. But, right now, I just need some room to breathe.
