In Book 2 of the Jezibaba Saga, regenerated warlock, Nathaniel, intends to spend the next hundred years like he spent the previous hundred. His dedication to his work requires that he not get bogged down in the demands of the flesh, especially not flesh that has purple hair and a snarky attitude.
Following Princess Leelu into the land of fairies wasn’t planned. Goddess knows, the rhyming trolls just about sent him over the edge. And why does everyone keep thinking he’s their fairy king? No, on second thought… he’d just as soon not know.
“Run from this you cannot. A king she needed—a king she got.”
The former Jezibaba and her Professor Hottie dragon are back for more adventures in the Jezibaba Saga! And for those of you who read the Baba Yaga Saga, you’ll be happy to know that Zenos is finding his mate in this one too!
Here’s the bottom line. I choose my early book ARC reviewers from active readers on my mailing lists who consistently open the emails and click the links inside. If a reader is reading all the excerpts and using the book links in the email, that’s a pretty good indication to any author that the reader is someone who really enjoys their work.
About once a year, I sort my email list and make the offer to a range of 30-50 new readers. I keep my reviewer lists small (around 150).
I talk to my reviewers most. They might not hear from me for a couple months, then suddenly I’m emailing them several times over a month. It’s the nature of the creative process. It comes in waves of activity. I sometimes send reviewers emails asking for things–nothing big, easy peasy things. For example, recently I took a heat level poll because my new romantic comedy series is a bit tamer than my normal. I wanted some feedback before I told my characters to close the door–LOL.
What do my reviewers get for their help? They get all the books early, and if they’ve missed one, they can write to me and ask for it in exchange for a review.
Want to be considered? Here are the links to sign up to my mailing lists. I have two–one for each genre group–so you only need to sign up for the email you truly want.
When I’m waiting on new release from one of favorite authors, I like to buy it early, even though in most cases I will have forgotten about it. I do this mostly for the mental thrill and because it uses my forgetfulness in a positive way. Love those twofers. LOL
So here’s Book 2 of Alien’s in Kilts available now for Pre-Order. It’s everywhere but Nook. Sorry. I’m sure it will be there eventually… <sigh> The book releases on May 22, 2017.
