After lots of hard work I have now finally published my first self-published work, namely Heart of Dame (Solomon’s Pride, book 3) on amazon. I wanted to have it out by the end of May, which I did apparently, but as it took some time getting it ready I decided to skip the whole pre-order phase.
I’m very much in a happy place now ^_^ and my plans going forward is as follows: Write thesis, prepare Keeping Zane (Solomon’s Pride, book 4) for August publication, post first free short story (short stories of the Pride) sometime in the first half of July (Patreon supporters of 3$ and more get to read it a week early), pray for sunshine this summer, and do some proofreading for a friend of mine.
You can buy Heart of Dame here
Oh, and also, if any of you comes across my books being pirated, please make whoever responsible aware that I am a living, breathing person living under a ton of student-loans
Figured this was a good time for a little update. First of all, in case you forgot how the cover by Winterheart Design for Heart of Dame looks like, here you go:

If everything goes according to plan this will be released on May 30th and I will make a new post as soon as it is available for pre-order on Amazon.
Now, second of all 🙂 I am happy to reveal the cover for Keeping Zane. This was designed by a friend of mine who is a freelance artist and a big fan of the Solomon’s Pride series. This one is scheduled for release in August.
After thinking about it for a long time, I finally decided to go ahead and get a patreon account. It feels a bit weird, though I also feel excited and hope that this will lead me one step closer to my dreams of one day becoming a full-time writer.
So if you want to, you can now help support my writing on Patreon
First thing first, I have not abandoned the whole podcasting thing. Just pausing a little bit. I had recorded a second episode, but before I finished editing, a lot of things happened that sort of conflicted with the second episode. So I will be re-recorded it with some changes. Good changes, but I won’t make you wait for that to be recorded and edited before letting you know what’s up.
As I’ve mentioned, the problems with “The Link that Binds” are finally behind us and is available for purchase on Amazon. I have, however, talked with my publishers regarding my Solomon’s Pride books and I will be self-publishing the remaining books in the series. I still haven’t written the sixth and final book of Solomon’s Pride, but two republishes and one new story is ready for publishing pending some editing. I won’t publish them all at once because I don’t want the release of book six to be too far away from the rest of them and for now I have no idea when that will be completed. This is a busy year for me working on my thesis to get my Master’s degree, but I will start writing the final Solomon’s Pride book after I finish The Hunting Party. On my coming soon page I have listed the almost ready books with the tentative release dates (months) for May, August and November and hopefully It won’t be too far out in 2018 before I can get book six out. Still, to bridge the waiting gaps I am planning a series of short free-reads between the releases that will be posted on my blog, revisiting characters from the series, but the first one won’t be out till after the release of Heart of Dame.
Another bonus is that after finishing Solomon’s Pride I will also write a kind of Beyond Solomon’s Pride series consisting of three stand alone stories featuring some of the minor characters featured in the original series:
- Saber (The Alpha wolf of the pack that helps the Pride)
- Lee (Saber’s Beta – The half kitsune, half wolf with a forked tongue)
- Kyle (Link’s son, Jace’s step-son)
The free-reads will continue inbetween these books and after that I’m hoping to continue doing small freebies with characters from my other works.
The Link that Binds (Solomon’s Pride, book 2) is now finally back up on Amazon. If there are any more problems with this book now, I think I will literally end up curled into a ball crying. Hoping that will not be the case. 😛 here’s the link (Pun somewhat intended)
Hey guys. A little weird title for this blogpost, but I’ll explain 😉 First though, unfortunately I don’t have any new news on Solomon’s Pride – The Link that binds. It has been one headache after the other trying to distribute this one, but I’ll be sure to update you when something happens on that front.
But back to my actual reason for this post… I have started a podcast. Yes, you heard me correctly, I’m podcasting now. This is, for me, a little terrifying. It’s something I’ve wanted to get into for awhile, but I’ve been debating myself a little if I should post it or not, because I’m not used to making audiotapes of myself and I’m probably not the only one who thinks their voice sounds weird on tape. Add to that, English isn’t exactly something I speak on a daily basis, so yeah I might sound slightly more weird than usual, but it should get better over time.
The show is called “Thoughts of an Erotic Romance Author” and you’ll soon find it on itunes, but you can listen to it now on my podbean site eroticromance.podbean.com
The first episode is probably the heaviest episode and details how I started writing the things that I do in the first place, while later I want it to be more of my normal ramblings and things about my books, daily life etc. Hoping to upload one episode per week and I’ll probably end up moving the podcast to my wordpress blog before summer starts.
So if you want to know a little more about me and the things going on in my life, bookwise or other, feel free to listen in. And if you want me to talk about certain things or want to simply ask me questions to address on the show, then by all means, let me know. Hopefully, I’ll be more relaxed for the next episode, so I don’t seem so nervous. It’s not like it’s being taped in front of a live studio audience 😛
So, note to self: Chill.
Happy valentines day everyone! Why not celebrate with Alpha wolf Harley and his newfound mate? You can now get “Harley – Protecting his Pack” on Bookstrand, the final chapter of my Pack Leaders series. It is twice as long as the previous ones and possibly twice as good ^_^ I hope you enjoy the read!
Apparently there were some more issues with The Link that Binds on Amazon where it didn’t update properly. My publisher have now re-re-submitted it, hopefully for the last time. It can take up to 72 hours before it has been completely updated though. Sorry for the inconveniance guys.
The fourth and final book of my Pack Leaders serie is now available for pre-order at bookstrand. You can order your copy here. This book is the longest one in the series as well, being approx 14.000 words longer than the previous one (which was the longest of the three first books) The release date is set for February 14th ^_^ aka valentine’s day and I can’t think of a better day to have Harley and Win’s story released.
Everything should be sorted with The Link that binds (Solomon’s Pride, book 2) now. Those of you who’ve gotten versions with editing marks still in them, have or will receive a new copy. Either it should be sent to you or you can simply re-download them from amazon.
