Advanced Review Copies – You know you want one!

Cake400x600Hi all! Cake is scheduled for release in mid February and I am stoked as hell. For those of you paying attention, you might have noticed that I didn’t release a book in 2015 at all. #sadface

I’m doing my damnedest to make up for it in 2016. Cake is a sweet, sexy novella (That means longer than a short story, but shorter than a novel. In other words, the perfect middle ground for a sexy-time bit of erotica.) and will be available for the crazy low price of $2.99.

Right? We’re getting wild up in here!

What to do if you want to own one of your very own? There are options, people! Options!

Ylva logoOption, the first: Head over to the Ylva Publishing website. You can’t pre-order it yet, but you can add it to your wishlist. And that’s cool. Specifically, you can do that HERE.

But wait, there’s more!

Option, the second: Wait for it to be available on all other platforms, such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, etc. #doublesadface Waiting sucks.

Last but not least…

Option, the third: Sign up to receive an advanced review copy. Yeah, that is as cool as it sounds. Now, it’s not as simple as getting a free book for nothing. But it’s almost that cool. Here’s the sitch:

  1. ARCs (that’s fancy talk for advanced review copy) are deliverable straight to your Kindle only. That requires a couple of things, like you have to list me as an approved sender and give me your kindle email, but I have directions for all that. Again, fancy. If you don’t have a Kindle, do not despair. Go ahead and sign up and we’ll see if I can make other arrangements.
  2. After reading it, you gotta head over to Amazon and Goodreads and leave a review. If you want to share the review love with B&N and the Ylva website, and your own personal blog, feel free. I won’t be stopping you.
  3. You must promise to leave an honest review. This whole ARC thing is very, very common practice, but I have some significant ethical hangups around ARCs. It only works for me if you cross your heart and hope to die that you won’t say you love it if you hate it. And vice-versa.
  4. I have a limited number of ARCs. As much as I’d love to give them out to everyone (because what’s cooler than free books!), I can’t. Astrid Ohletz, the publisher over at Ylva, might be forced to sacrifice me to an angry pagan goddess if I gave them away to everyone. #triplesadface

So, if you’re like me and you think waiting sucks, go ahead and click on the magic link below, fill out the form, and get your very own ARC. Woo!

Reviews are love


A sexy romance about two women, one inconvenient wedding, and a shared love of Cake!

Kelly and Elana’s relationship is a recipe for disaster. First, they meet at a wedding, and that never works. Second, Kelly’s older brother is marrying Elana’s ex-lover. And third, Elana is still painfully, undeniably in love with said ex.

When it comes to other people’s lives, Elana Verdad is an expert. As a licensed psychologist and life coach, she helps people overcome obstacles. Her own life, on the other hand, is a disaster. Her lover left her for a man, so she drove over his mailbox accidentally on purpose. Now, not only did the judge take away her driver’s license, he also assigned her to community service at the local women’s prison. In what may be her worst idea ever, Elana decides to crash their wedding.

Kelly Miller may not understand her brother’s rush to marry his girlfriend, but when he asks her to bake his wedding cake, it’s not as if she can refuse. She’s in the catering business after all. At the wedding, she meets a beautiful, complicated, and seriously damaged woman. Although Kelly knows it’s crazy, she’s drawn to her nonetheless.

Despite the reasons they shouldn’t be together, there’s still an undeniable something between them. All they need is a chance to enjoy their slice of the cake.
