We are in the middle of a family emergency which means I'm out of my office. Normally this wouldn't be an issue because--yay for the internet and access from any computer anywhere! But I made a huge (read: dumb) mistake and forgot to put all of the NIKOLAI II files into Dropbox.
This is the not so fun side of going the indie route. It's all on me when I do something completely boneheaded like run out the door with just my iPhone and purse in hand. I don't have access to pre-orders at Amazon or else I would have tossed this bad boy up weeks ago. The good side of indie, of course, is that I get to tell stories like the ones I've written for the Russians and my debt collectors. Stories that I couldn't sell to the publishers of my Lo books because they didn't believe there was a market for deliciously Alpha, intensely complicated mobsters and their lady loves.
I shared this sneak peek of NIKOLAI II with my street team a few days ago so I was able to get my paws on this PDF. It's the entire first chapter of the book---and it's a sexy one. So, um, NSFW.
I hope (fingers crossed) to be back home and in the office Monday night or Tuesday morning. It should be a one day delay at most until NIKOLAI II is available. Huge apologies. I'm holding out my knuckles for virtual ruler smacks on this one.
I'll be out of pocket until then. I will get to all the comments here and on FB as soon as possible. June has just been a really weird month for us with kiddo getting sick and the Viking (who is diabetic) sustaining a pretty gnarly foot injury. Frankly, I'm ready for July to start so we can have a clean slate and a healthy (!) do-over.
Anywho. Here is Chapter One. Nikolai gets inventive with Vee and finds some interesting ways to use a paint brush and a peach. Ahem.
