#FREE on #Kindle – Step Beast by Selena Kitt #Badboy #BDSM #MIlitary Romance

FREE on AMAZON

They call him Beast because he fights and f*cks like one. Because he’s built like the tanks he rode in Afghanistan.

Beneath Conrad “Beast” Beeston III’s fierce, intense gaze, his brooding temperament, his knuckles scarred from fighting, lurks a wild man, his strong, broad back darkly inked with his own hard truths.

He only has one mode, and “Beast” is it. He ripped through Tilly’s life, tearing it to shreds, and then he was gone, giving a stiff middle finger to a life of entitlement. He left her like he leaves them all—with little more than a broken heart. But for Tilly, there was one more thing.

He left her with an unbearable secret she’s been forced to keep for years.

Tilly’s privileged life, after her recent graduation from Mt. Holyoke, has come to a screeching halt under tragic circumstances. Had she really believed she’d never see her Devil Dog stepbrother again?

Now he’s coming home—and she’s forced to face his cocky smirk and arrogant swagger, to look once again into the eyes of the monster who left her.

Forced to confront him, what she sees is a raw, broken, tortured man who just might be the only person she knows keeping even bigger secrets than she is.

Worse, she still wants him. Even if it means breaking everything in her life wide open—even if it means unleashing the Beast.

NOTE: This is a full-length novel, no cliffhangers

The Future of Indie Publishing – Selena Kitt’s Predictions for 2017

I remember in the old days, back in 2010 (*rocking like the old-timer I am, in a chair on the porch*) when the ebook market was the wild west of publishing…There was gold in them thar hills, I tell you! So. Much. Gold! Those of us who got in early? We made out like bandits. Now, I know this isn’t 2010 anymore, but the metaphor of the gold rush still applies. The avenues to “easy money” have mostly been closed off in indie publishing. As Amazon continues their attempt to dominate the ebook market, other income streams narrow down to a trickle. And Amazon themselves continue to squeeze indie authors, offering them less in profits, while their algorithms force them to spend more money in ads to make a larger sum.

Depressed? Dejected? Don’t worry. This isn’t the end of indie publishing. It’s just a shift in the market, and the best thing about indie authors is their ability to adapt. Yes, the market will continue to be flooded with new authors and more books. As the pond gets bigger, there will be a larger gap between the “big fish” and the “little fish,” and it will become even more difficult to gain visibility. But if you stick with it, and do all the right things, you can still make a career as an indie author.

2017 holds a lot of promise. It may not be the gold rush anymore, but there’s still a lot of gold in them thar hills—you just have to work a little harder to find it.

I think upping your marketing game this year will be key. Learn how to create effective ads with the biggest bang for your buck—or hire someone reputable who can do it for you. Amazon Ads will start giving Facebook ads a run for their money. Bookbub will continue to be effective (but less so than in previous years – we may have reached a saturation point there…) To be fair, most mailing list sites are less effective now than they’ve been in years previous. That said, many are still worth investing in to get the most eyes you can on your books.

Unfortunately, I do believe that Amazon’s market share will continue to grow. However, I think we are starting to see the giant just beginning to stumble, now that they have to turn a profit and actually pay shareholders (and this isn’t limited to selling books). Amazon has made several missteps this year, and they’re battling widespread fraud (again, not just in ebooks) and I see this trend causing mistrust, both in their customers and their vendors.

Amazon algorithms will continue to give boosts to KDP Select books, but given the issues that have recently come to light about “Kindle Unlimited” (not the least of which is Amazon’s inability to actually count the “pages read” they’re using to pay out to KDP Select author participants) authors may become more selective about their use of KDP Select as a marketing tool. Authors may put only certain books into the program, or put books in for just the first 90 days and then use sale prices coupled with a Bookbub ad (or a cluster of other smaller ads) to push the book wide. I believe authors will continue to use KDP Select, but many will begin to back off from the “all in” philosophy. Personally, I’ve never been a proponent of putting all your eggs in one basket.

Still, Amazon will remain the elephant in the room, and I believe their own imprints will continue to dominate the top book spots on the site. Because of this, we may see authors seeking to go hybrid this year, whether it’s looking to become an “Amazon author,” or submitting to traditional publishing houses.

I think growth in 2017 will be in foreign markets (where Kobo already has a foothold), as well as audio (where the market is still growing by leaps and bounds) and direct sales (which means sites like Gumroad and Patreon will gain even more popularity with authors). And while we’ve seen some small pubs down-size (like Samhain) and other smaller sites collapse (like All Romance Ebooks / Omnilit) others like Excitica and A1 Adult Ebooks (and their sister sites) will be around to pick up the slack. And as Amazon and other vendors crack down on more “adult” material, these sites will offer niche markets for subsequently disenfranchised readers and authors.

My best advice for 2017 is to work smarter, not harder. It may feel as if you’re on a writing treadmill, forced to release something new every thirty days or so, and the truth is there are plenty of authors doing just that. And some prolific authors have found success doing so. There is certainly something to the formula of “writing to market, writing fast and publishing often.” But don’t worry if you’re not the 5-10K-a-day sort of author. You can still be successful writing just a book or two a year. How?

Work smarter. Make sure you’re growing your own mailing list—and engaging with your readers on a regular basis. Don’t let them forget you exist (but don’t spam them—or annoy them—either). Readers like engaging with authors. And what they seem to enjoy most is authors with big personalities. So find your author persona and work it! I’ve seen authors do this in many different ways, from the inimitable Chuck Tingle to the sassy Jordan Silver. Take the best parts of you—the parts that others tend to be drawn to—and amplify them by ten. Turn up the volume. Be bold. Do and say the things that will make them remember you, in your newsletter and on social media. Just make sure you’re doing it from a genuine place. You’re just turning up the volume, not changing the channel!

Also, remember that no author is an island. Find other authors who write things similar to you and work out a way to cross-promote and cross-pollinate on a regular basis. Trust me, even if you’re the most prolific author in the world, you can’t turn out books fast enough to keep up with readers. Cross-promoting keeps readers on your side. They’ll start looking to you for recommendations and it will help keep their interest while you’re writing your next novel. And if you find you really click with another author, you can always consider an author partnership. After all, two authors can writer faster than one!

I don’t think 2016 was a great year for indies—but I do believe 2017 has the potential to be. No, 2017 won’t be anything like the gold rush year of 2010, but it’s still full of possibilities. I think the indie author community has grown together and become stronger over the years, and their future is still quite bright. Indies know how to adapt. They’re natural entrepreneurs, and even when the learning curve is steep, they’re willing to jump into the deep end to learn how to swim.

Looking forward to 2017, I think indie authors will continue to innovate, push the envelope, and transform the face of publishing itself.

#99cents #newrelease Unbreakable Bonds (Science Fiction Alien Romance) #blackfriday #iartg #eartg #RT

unbreakablebondslarge

UNBREAKABLE BONDS

JUST $0.99 for a LIMITED TIME

In the not-so-distant future, working at N.A.S.A. has its perks. For Ruby, who isn’t an astronaut nor does she have any aspirations to be, the biggest perk is meeting Sebastian.

The minute their eyes meet, Ruby feels herself attracted to the man—who is a man and yet so much more—before they even exchange hellos. It’s Sebastian’s alien, lavender-colored eyes that draw her in, and their relationship burns so fast and hot, they’re bonded before she even knows what’s happening.

When Ruby sees Sebastian with a very tall, pretty blonde, she suddenly feels just how deeply their bond goes. The pain is so unbearable, she begins wishing she could be taken back to a time and place when the idea of life on other planets was just a dream—when the invention of hypersleep and traveling at the speed of light were nothing but ideas in the minds of fiction writers.

Is she ready to be the human mate of an alien being? Does she have a choice anymore? Conflicted Ruby wallows in her pain until an unlikely someone intervenes—and Ruby comes to fully understand just how unbreakable her bond with Sebastian really is.

The Frog Prince - Modern Wicked Fairy Tales

THE FROG PRINCE

Modern Wicked Fairy Tales

JUST $0.99 for a LIMITED TIME

In this modern version of the fairy tale classic, The Frog Prince, heiress Darcy Haverford and ex-military beach bum Daniel Colvin find themselves shipwrecked on a desert island together.

Daniel may have the skills to keep them alive–but after living alone with Darcy for a week, he’s not sure he has the patience to keep from wringing her spoiled neck.

But the longer they spend together, the hotter it gets on the island, until the friction between the two of them rises to a fever pitch.

What neither of them knows is that a storm is coming, and the key to their survival may be both discipline and surrender.

BOOKMARK THE ADVENTURES WITH THE BAUMGARTNERS PAGE

That’s where you’ll find all the latest updates!

Everyone enjoyed Ronnie & Gretchen’s scene in Babysitting the Baumgartners so much, we decided to bring you more! Adam & Eve asked me to write a new Baumgartner book, delving deeper into Ronnie and Gretchen’s relationship after Babysitting the Baumgartners. There are new characters, though – and some “old” ones, too. Anyone who’s read “A Baumgartner Christmas” will recognize Daphne and Wilson (who now goes by a shortened version of his first name – Ari – since he and Daphne are married now…) If you haven’t read it, now’s the time!

We’ll be releasing the book and the movie “Adventures with the Baumgartners” at the same time next year – but filming for the movie happens this weekend! The cast of characters includes Ronnie and Gretchen, as well as Doc and Mrs. B, of course. Daphne and Ari have an adult daughter, Paige, and she has a boyfriend, Tyler. And if you’ve read the whole Baumgartner series, you might remember Ronnie’s boyfriend, Vince. He’s in it, too.

I’ll be posting lots of pics from on-set, so get ready to see more of these incredibly sexy folks!
