Adventures in Self-Publishing & Cover Reveal

This month, when I realised that the year is rapidly reaching its conclusion and I have done precious little about getting my stories off my hard drive and out into the big wide world, I actually got around to sending two of them out there.

One has gone to Fireborn Publishing and is awaiting their decision as to whether they want to publish it.  I will no doubt be doing a blog post about that some time in the next few months confirming that one way or the other.

The second is a short story that I am going to be self-publishing.  It is currently going through edits and will hopefully be published later this year.  I am aiming to get it released before NaNoWriMo arrives in November, though nothing is set in stone.

The story is a futuristic, lighthearted romance and the rough (totally unedited) blurb is below.

This story has had more titles than any other story I have written.  Finally, it is settled as Holographic Havoc.  And since I have a wonderful new cover for it, there is no changing my mind for the billionth time.

This is my first entirely self-published story.  Skin Deep, of course, was previously released via the publisher that must not be named.

I anticipate it being available only at Amazon, at least in the first instance as I have not yet come to grips with other outlets.  That is one of the jobs on my 2018 to do list.

I hope that you will support me in my efforts at self-publishing, as well as crossing your fingers that Fireborn wants my other story.

Holographic Havoc

Hayden Knight’s job is simple. All he has to do is sell his father’s latest invention to Tate South, the Acquisitions Manager of the biggest supplier of the latest in modern technology. The virtual assistant is designed to help the user in all aspects of their life, but Hayden finds the holographic helper nothing but a nuisance. Keeping his annoyance to himself is relatively easy until a major technical glitch causes Tate to see and hear Hayden’s assistant.

Thrown together while they try to figure out what has happened, the chemistry between Hayden and Tate is electric. Hayden soon finds that convincing Tate that he needs a Holo-Assistant isn’t as important to him as persuading him he needs Hayden in his life.

The attraction is mutual and the sparks are flying. If only they could get rid of their holographic third wheel.
