ARIELLE IMMORTAL FURY, a new release #paranormal #romance! #ASMSG



A memory of love…
On her return to the present from a time-travel journey to sixteenth-century Calais, France, college co-ed Arielle Lloyd anticipates a joyful welcome from her immortal fiancé, Sebastian Gaulle. She is stunned to discover that he doesn’t remember their time together there and wonders, has she lost him forever?
Danger from afar…
As Sebastian tries to shake loose his disturbing memories and solve the enigma of Arielle’s haunting eyes, the Russian Mafia ups the stakes in their deadly game to steal crucial documents from his company. Then an envelope arrives with photos of Arielle. The message is clear: if Sebastian fails to meet their demands, his love will pay the price with her life.
A love across all time…

Sebastian and his associates join forces with Interpol in a race to thwart the Russians’ plans. In the global battle, the Russians have made a serious mistake. They have threatened the beloved of an indestructible immortal, a woman Sebastian only now realizes he has loved across the centuries.

The San Antonio Book Festival is coming April 2015! Can't wait to miss it. #Pubtalk #ASMSG


The headline reads:


I was checking out a link to a book festival I saw on twitter, and it occurred to me that maybe San Antonio might have such a thing! Biting my bottom lip in excitement, I googled it, and lo and behold, I found the San Antonio Book Festival!     http://www.saplf.org/festival/

So, here I am, all excited that I can go to a local book festival and rub elbows with authors and readers, maybe some local bookstores ... the possibilities fired off in my mind like fourth of July fireworks. Until this moment, I had not bothered dealing in local publicity and book signings, because its generally considered a waste of time among the internet marketing crowd. I have learned that I can spend a few minutes on Facebook, Twitter, or Goodreads, and speak directly with readers and fans of my genre. All the fuss about book signings is for authors whose books are sitting on the shelf in a store somewhere.

As y'all probably know, I am self-published, and my books are in every major online retail store, but, they are not on bookstore shelves. And, I haven't even bothered to do paperbacks for every novel as of yet, some are only available as ebooks. 

For the first time, I began to seriously contemplate the opportunities that might exist for me in the local market of San Antonio as an author at this wonderful book festival. 

Then I clicked through to the book submissions page, and found this:
What types of books are considered?
  • Fiction--including all genres such as thrillers and Westerns
  • Narrative nonfiction--history, biography, memoir, and essays
  • Cookbooks and food-related titles
  • Poetry
  • Children’s Literature
  • Art and Architecture titles
What types of books are not considered?
SABF focuses on the promotion of literature and Texas literary culture; books on the topics of self-improvement, how-to, or books strictly of academic or religious interest will not be considered.
We do not accept self-published books or those from vanity or subsidy presses as they often require additional professional editing and polishing that would enable them to be selected for the Festival.
Should a self-­published/printed author submit?
We do not accept self-published books or those from vanity or subsidy presses. Self-published authors are encouraged to participate in the Festival as Exhibitors.
Well, I don't write westerns, and while my books could be called thriller, really they are paranormal romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, and urban fantasy. And, of course, I am self-published, so that throws a wrench in the whole idea. I guess I don't fit in with San Antonio's idea of the Texas literary culture. 

The good news is, they will gladly charge me $375 to open a festival exhibit. Maybe I could get painted up like a clown and sit at the dunk tank while all the library officials throw their literary culture books at me in hopes of seeing the local self-published author get a good dunking! 

Wouldn't that be a hoot?

Not.

What a fool I was, getting all excited that my novel THE NIGHTLIFE SAN ANTONIO, a book about San Antonio (and vampires, Mexican Mafia, Texas Aryan Brotherhood, and corrupt San Antonio police), might actually get some local publicity! You'd think a local author, who recently hit the NY Times and USA Today bestseller lists, who wrote a book about San Antonio, would be allowed to submit that book for the San Antonio Book Festival. That makes sense right?

Does it really matter if high muckety muck editors fondled my book? I mean, the fact that three published authors, Patricia Knight, Marilyn Lakewood, and Kayla Stonor edited my book isn't good enough?



According to authorearnings.com, in a snapshot of Amazon bestselling novels in July of 2014, self-pub authors controlled anywhere from 30% to 60% of market share on the bestseller lists, and were earning 40% of the ebook sales dollars going to authors.

So, I think the real question today isn't whether or not I will foot the bill to set up a festival exhibit like a popcorn vendor or a some guy selling herbal weight loss supplements, the real question is: 
When is the Texas literary culture going to step down off their high horse and realize that self-publishing is the growing trend world-wide, and that *gasp* some of us actually have decently edited novels that actually sell on nationwide bestseller lists?
I think I might have to pass on this phenomenal book festival that won't allow my books to sully such a noble event. Besides, I will probably be too busy publishing and selling books to bother with it.

I leave y'all with a quote from Hugh Howey in the author earnings website:
"While it should be a jolt to see that Indies are earning nearly 40% of the ebook dollars going to authors, we are starting to take this reality for granted. That’s real progress. As it has proven to be in other fields of entertainment, the indie movement in literature is not a blip and not a gold rush. It appears to be here to stay."

UNDER BY TREATY, a surreal journey of #Scifi #EroticRomance #BDSM #ASMSG


Sex, scifi, bondage, BDSM! Meet Jaden, a powerful alpha-male, a general defending Earth from the invading K'lahn. But, the war they thought was won is now escalating...

The President just signed a treaty to appease the rulers of the K'lahn with a suitable offering. General Jaden is now the property of Ambassador Sonil, to be trained for life as a sex slave to the Empress...




Description:

He’s hers by treaty. She wants his devotion.

General Jaden is a thorn in the Qui’s side. Ambassador Sonil is on Earth to extract him by treaty. When Jaden is stripped naked then caged, he gets a taste of how far she will go to ensure he is worthy of serving the Qui Empress. Her training is ruthless and alien rules apply. Failure is not an option; saving Earth from annihilation requires Jaden’s complete surrender.
But Sonil demands more than obedience. She wants his devotion.

Under By Treaty is a bold, fast-paced adventure of femdom erotic romance, with a strong alpha hero who must submit to an alien temptress to save the human race from decimation by the conquering might of the Qui Empire.

This erotic romance novel containing BDSM themes is the first installment of a science fiction series and part of the Surrender collection.



About Kayla Stonor


The first thing to tell you is that Kayla Stonor is my pen name. I tend to write erotic romance (aiming for the ‘happy ever after/happy for now’ endings) but as I love thriller/adventure themes with a darker edge, my stories are not the usual erotic romance fare.

In real life, I’m married with two children, and I keep my erotic writing at a long arms length from my private life. So much so, marketing  my work became impossible. Thankfully, Travis Luedke, a fellow author who writes his own unique brand of paranormal erotic romance, has encouraged me to publish new editions of my original stories and he will take on the marketing aspects! Travis is not short on ideas for the storylines either, but is a very patient and insightful editor, so I am hoping readers will enjoy the new editions!

Lisa Hughey
Lisa Hughey has been writing romance since the fourth grade, which was also about the time she began her love affair with spies. Harriet and Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys later gave way to James Bond and Lara Croft and Jason Bourne.

Exploring the complex nature of a profession that requires subterfuge and lies fascinates her. She loves combining her two passions into fiction. As evidenced by her Black Cipher Files series.

Archangel Rafe was her first foray into the paranormal but after spending time in the Angelic Realm, it won't be her last. At their heart, the Seven novels are about the dynamics of family relationships. But the really hot Archangels don't hurt.

And recently she's been immersed in the Stone Family novellas, four stories about a blended family of brothers and sister who have a lot more in common than they realize. But of course she couldn't just write about family and romance. There are complex plots, bad guys, and suspense too.

Lisa loves to hear from readers and has various places you can connect with her, although, shh, Twitter is her favorite.

From there on out, she was determined to tap into her over-active imagination and write a book someday.

After living abroad for five years and earning degrees in Japanese, Anthropology, and Secondary Education, she buckled down and finally wrote her first full-length book. While that story will never see the light of day, it laid the world-building groundwork of what would become her debut paranormal romance, Blaze of Secrets.

Jessie loves to interact with readers. When not reading a book or traipsing around some foreign country on a shoestring, can often be found on Facebook and Twitter.
