Mailing List Promo!

Early NaNo is going well. I’ve not hit my wordcount exactly every day, but I am consistently working and excited.

With Delphinium now slated to be out soon I wanted to reward you lovely lot.

As you know Larkspur is set as permanently free. This is in the US Amazon, Kobo, and B&N online stores. Amazon in other regions hasn’t price-matched, but it’s at .99 in those places.

Delphinium will be $2.99 at release, maybe upped to $3.99 at a later point. It is going to be 100K+, so *seven* times longer than Larkspur. You will have gotten your money’s worth 🙂

I know I’ve taken ages with it, I know many of you are waiting for it. And so, to those that have joined, or will join, my mailing list before the release will be getting Delphinium for free. After it’s officially out you’ll have to pay. But for the next two months or so (as I finish and then edit it) anyone who joins the list will get a free copy as soon as it is done.

I am not requiring a review to get this copy, though I’d adore if you left your thoughts. This is my gift to you.

Join this list to get a free ARC copy of Delphinium before its release!

DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN #2 – Geraldine Evans

DOWN AMONG THE DEAD MEN #2 RAFFERTY & LLEWELLYN BRITISH DETECTIVE
MYSTERY SERIES.

A Little Laughter. A Little Mayhem. A Little MURDER…

For those who like cozy mysteries, humorous mysteries and police procedurals.

When beautiful Barbara Longman is found dead in a meadow, uprooted wild flowers strewn about her and, in her hand, a single marigold, British Detective Joe Rafferty at first believes the murder may be the work of the serial killer over the county border in Suffolk.

But then he meets the victim’s family – and after liaising with the Suffolk police, he rapidly comes to believe that the mystery killing is the work of a copycat…one much closer to home; someone among the descendants of the long-dead family patriarch, Maximillian Shore.

Everyone, it seems, had a motive: Henry the grieving widower; the victim’s brother-in-law Charles Shore, the ruthless tycoon; Henry’s first wife, the Bohemian Anne, who has lost the custody of her teenage son, to the saintly Barbara.

Even the long-dead patriarch, Maximillian Shore, seems, to Rafferty, to have some involvement in the murder, though how, or why, Rafferty doesn’t understand until he finally grasps the truth behind the reasons for the killing. A truth sad and dreadful and which had been evident from the start, if only he had had the eyes to see.

BLACK FRIDAY BARGAIN @ 99c (Was $1.80). Book #1 in the series (Dead
Before Morning) is FREE in the US and UK.

GONE

Displaying Gone-Final.jpg

Macy Mercer only wants a little independence. Eager to prove herself grown up, she goes to a dark, secluded park. She’s supposed to meet the boy of her dreams who she met online. But the cute fifteen year old was a fantasy, his pictures fake. She finds herself face to face with Chester Woodran, a man capable of murder.

Distraught over his own missing daughter, Chester insists that Macy replace his lost girl. He locks Macy up, withholds food, and roughs her up, demanding that she call him dad. Under duress from his constant threats and mind games, her hold on reality starts to slip. Clinging to her memories is the only way of holding onto her true identity, not believing that she is Chester’s daughter. Otherwise she may never see her family again.

 
 

Larkspur is Free June 20th and 21st! + Delphinium teaser

KDP Select is ending for Larkspur: A Necromancer’s Romance and to celebrate I’m using up my last two free days! Originally I wanted Delphinium out on the 20th as well, but that hasn’t worked out quite as well (it will be out on the 30th though!) Sunday Larkspur will be put up on Nook, Kobo, and probably Apple as well.

For now, if you still haven’t read Larkspur, do grab a kindle (or a kindle app) and get it for free starting at midnight. I just ask that if you like it you please leave a review ❤

Oh, and a little teaser for Delphinium: A Necromancer’s Love

A dark fantasy romance, Delphinium continues the story of the duc de Piques, Pierre Salvador, and his newly found love the Lady Elizabeth Anne. They go spend spring at the duchy that Pierre is in the process of inheriting, and find not everything is at ease. The advisors are wary of a new lord, and a sickness plagues the outer lands. But the lord himself is too occupied with his other passions to pay much attention- he has a new student, and an old love. Rumours of necrocræft begin to surface, the use of a magic over life and death- a magic that Pierre has just mastered.

Book II

I really need to get Delphinium out. Larkspur’s sales have peaked, and even though it’s not even been 3 months yet, I already feel like ‘hey I wrote a book!’ is getting old. I don’t want to spam people, I want people to read my stuff because they like that sort of thing. My Facebook Party has 18 confirmed guests, and my sales are at 132- so it seems people are at least a little interested.

But I won’t be able to keep anyone’s interests with a short novelette and no sequel.

I moved the facebook release date to the 30th, just so it wouldn’t stay on the 20th, but I think I can hit that. The extra week is giving me a lot more breathing room, even accounting for an exam I have to take on the 23rd. I’m essentially home alone for the next two weeks (family in Poland, and while brother is at home, he’s out a lot) and won’t have many distractions aside from keeping the house not-on-fire. Now just not to get sucked into procrastination.

Larkspur will still be free on the 20th and 21st, going on to Nook, Kobo and other platforms the 22nd.

Data

Wow. My free day was amazing. In total, over a 24 hour period, I had 864 downloads. A great majority from the US, but a fair few from Canada, the UK, and 4 from Germany. I think even an Aussie picked up a copy.

Today, the day after, I’ve had 10 *sales.* Yup, sales– people paying money to get Larkspur. I had thought about putting the price back up to $2.99 for a few days, but decided against it- Larkspur remains at 99cents. This isn’t about cash, it’s about readers, and making my name with writing. The cash and fame can come later 😛 It is also motivating me to write Spadille. I need more books out. It’s been a month, which isn’t a very long time, but pretty much forever on the internet. If there isn’t an update soon, 9 out of those 10 buyers will probably forget all about me.

To anyone reading this who downloaded or bought Larkspur- thank you from the bottom of my heart.
