So here's the scoop on the progress for The Art Of Domination series. The feedback on the first title indicated that people were really enjoying the longer length--it was over 24,000 words--and were hoping titles 2-8 were also going to be novella length, which is very very generally considered to be 20,000-40,000 words. I am happy to oblige, as I really do enjoy developing Iva and Nolan, but it means a lot of rewriting. Hence the delayed release date.
BUT as the title of the post suggests, the second novella is out! This is what it looks like:
When Iva Moreau made a
deal with sexy bad boy photographer Nolan Beal to keep her younger sister from
becoming his erotic pin-up model—in exchange for one photo session with Iva
herself—she thought she could fulfill her bargain and walk away from the life
of art, hedonism, and passion that had once consumed her. She hadn’t
anticipated that taking creative direction from the intense photographer would
lead so naturally and inevitably to taking sensual direction from him as well,
as she submits to the forbidden thrill of his sexual domination.
With his fair share of
attention from wannabe models and art world groupies, Nolan expected to satisfy
his curiosity over the fiery and protective Iva with one night’s seduction. As
she defies the stereotypes that have kept Nolan at a distance from love,
however, he finds himself compelled to seek out the Iva hidden behind the mask
of fierce duty and stifling respectability.
What began as Nolan’s
mission to obtain Iva’s signature on a model release for the use of her photos
now becomes a Dom’s seduction and instruction of the woman he would take as his
submissive. And the signature he has decided he wants from her is the very
opposite of a release.
Photo Slave is available now at Amazon (including Amazon US, UK, and Canada), Barnes & Noble, All Romance, BookStrand, and Smashwords. Kobo and Apple, of course, lag behind and take a few more days. The downside to the lag is that Kobo and Apple buyers won't get the debut weekend discount. Because the second title is a novella rather than a novelette, its regular price is going to be $3.99 instead of $2.99. However, for its debut, now through Monday January 27, 2014, Photo Slave will be on sale for 99 cents for early birds and loyal readers. It's a good opportunity to pick up the title at a 75% savings even if you want to wait until the entire series is out before you start reading.
Please enjoy, let me know what you think, and keep an eye out on this blog or on Facebook (or better yet, sign up for my newsletter) for announcements on the release of #3, Catchlight.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
