Just when Braedyn Murphy thought she understood the danger descending on Puerto Escondido, a new threat arrives. A cult devoted to Lilith has taken up residence in the little town, and when Cassie gets tangled up its intrigue, Braedyn realizes she might have to chose between protecting her friends and stopping Lilith from reclaiming this earth.
With her duties to the Guard wearing on her, Braedyn turns to Lucas for solace. Together they wonder if now is the time to claim their one night together—knowing that one night is all they may ever have.
Darker forces have their own plans for Braedyn and the Guard. Braedyn knew this fight could be brutal—but how much can one girl be asked to sacrifice in order to save the world?

Knight in less than shining armour seeks polish.
The Pan of Hamgee has escaped from police custody in K’Barth, switched realities and saved the woman of his dreams from Lord Vernon, but now they are both on the run.
To save her life, The Pan must introduce Ruth, the woman of his dreams, to the person prophesied to be the man of hers. And he knows he must do it fast – before Lord Vernon finds her. But, the gentleman in question is in hiding and no-one knows where. Only The Pan can find him, if he can bring himself to unite them.

As part of my Summer Shake-up, I have decided to snag some of the most interesting-looking reads on my “to-read” list and bump them up! My second bump is
See how fast this goes when I do it this way? I have finished my review of book #1 and am ready to read book #2: Strange Academy by Theresa Wilde. I bumped this book because I love Paranormal Romance and because it looks like a lot of fun and I can really relate to strangeness.
Determined to uncover the secret behind her eccentric aunt’s mysterious death, Sadie Strange, a quirky substitute teacher with a Master’s degree in comic book superheroes, takes a job at isolated private school Strange Academy. Her biggest obstacle? Haughty hottie Lorde Gray, the chemistry teacher who looks down his Roman nose at her as he tries to get her fired.
Undercover demon hunter Gray vows to use his spell-brewing powers to protect Strange Academy’s true purpose—educating extraordinary children with paranormal gifts. If the world knew the school’s secret, it would start a war that would destroy humanity. Gray won’t let a feisty mortal threaten that, no matter how much she swishes her heart-shaped butt.
When fate throws them together, strange allies Sadie and Gray seek to uncover the hidden forces behind her aunt’s death before they destroy Sadie—and the school. But when the demon hunter forbidden from associating with mortals and the mortal woman who can’t trust her own judgment around alpha males find themselves falling for each other, love is going to get a little strange…
So the book is out and it succeeded/did OK/sold nothing. But now what to do next? It’s really the same however the book did at release. I like lists, so here’s a list:
- Pat yourself on the back! Never forget that whether it did well or not, you released a book! Don’t let the feelings you have about your income cloud that accomplishment.
- Don’t confuse anticlimax with failure. You can’t reasonably keep up a book release day excitement up indefinitely. It’s a climax. Appreciate that and build slowly. That is the kind of work that builds a lasting platform.
- Contact more reviewers. You did this for your release, hopefully, but you can’t have too few reviews. I’m going through the lists at http://www.theindieview.com/indie-reviewers/ and http://www.stepbystepselfpublishing.net/reviewer-list.html.
- Look into promotions. Yes they are endless, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t do them. There are ways to promote for free and there are costly ways. You just need to decide how much work you want to do versus how much you want to spend. When one goes up the other goes down. Just do it. It won’t hurt that much.
- Write more books! It looks more and more like what sells books is more books. That’s what you were excited about in the first place, right? Writing books?
Thank you for celebrating my book release with me! You have all helped make this book a success and your support is priceless!
My posts are at an end for the party. I’ll reveal the contest results in the morning!
