Erotic Tales from the Vampire Underground Story #1: Blood Escort

Blood Escort is the first story in a new series of standalone erotic paranormal romance short stories/novelettes chronicling the first forays of humans into the secret world of the vampires that live in plain sight within their cities.

"Hi. I'm Isaac. Can I buy you a drink?"

Who would have thought such ordinary words uttered perhaps millions of times by the hopeful could cause her so much grief? Yet here Abby was, staring at a small card as though it was the very thing that would make or break the rest of her life...

Releases exclusively on all Amazon stores on Monday, September 15, 2014  

*Update: Apparently, Amazon is still having publishing issues/delays. I thought publishing over a day early would solve the delay problems I've been having with my last couple of releases, but no dice.

The title is now available in all Amazon stores except the US store. As some titles have been experiencing 48-60 hour delays, I suspect it won't become available in the US until Tuesday (hopefully). I'll keep everyone posted.

* Title has finally gone live on Amazon US and is also available to read for FREE with a Kindle Unlimited Subscription.

Update On My Current Works-In-Progress

Hi everyone. Once again I want to thank everyone for all the support so far and the kindly emails and comments!

I'm currently working on three projects, one a new Fantasy novel set in my Fractured Multiverse series, but it's the other two I wish to discuss here today. I've been hard at work developing a new Paranormal Romance universe that focuses on vampires which will be under the overall series title Tales From the Vampire Underground. Writing a vampire story is something I've been wanting to do for a while now as I love vampires just as much as I love elves. ^_^ Right now I have two separate entries started for this universe. The first is a novel series which I hope to have the first book out by the end of this month. I will release more information--title, blurb, excerpts, and a sample cover once the book is nearing publication. I will also be setting up a signup sheet for any readers interested in becoming an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) reviewer. Details on how to sign up will be discussed more in my next Reader Newsletter.

The second entry for The Vampire Underground I am currently working on is in response to quite a few emails I have received asking if I planned to offer any of my titles in Amazon's Kindle Unlimited subscription program. While I cannot at the moment offer any of my Elven King series in Kindle Unlimited since I would have to pull my books from other retailers and offer them exclusively at Amazon, I have decided to write a new short story/novelette series of standalones under the subtitle: Erotic Tales from the Vampire Underground and offer it as an Amazon exclusive series to read for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription. For readers without a subscription, each story will be offered for $0.99 on all Amazon stores. I also plan on releasing at least one future Elven King story for Kindle Unlimited Subscribers. I have a tentative release date of either September 12, 2014 or September 15, 2014 scheduled for Story #1 pending final edits and hope to release a new story every two to four weeks thereafter. I will post more definitive information about the release on Wednesday or Thursday.

I have also launched a new Author page on Facebook : While most of my posts will be made here on my blog, I will also post shorter news tidbits about my titles as well as relevant news from the world of books in general, answer reader questions, and announce any upcoming sales on my Facebook page.

Until next time!
