For Those Who Have Already Pre-ordered at 50¢…

For those who have not yet paid for their pre-order, it should still be at the 50¢ price point. IF IT IS NOT, PLEASE DO NOT PURCHASE. Let me know immediately! I want to be sure you still get it at the pre-order price. I’m not sure how this WooCommerce thingy works with pre-orders and price changes.

Also, the eBook will NOT automatically go to your eReader. You will have to download the file from you My Account page OR the link provided in the e-mail after you pay for your pre-order. Amazon Payments has been turned back on, but some people are still having problems. I can’t apologize enough for the inconveniences!!

Jan. 1, 2015 – No More eBook Purchases at My Site

Throwing in the Towel - YUM!Due to all the problems with downloading eBook files, putting them on devices and the overwhelming customer service requests that came through during the purchasing of eBooks and pre-orders through my website, I’ve thrown in the towel. It’s just me running my website and managing all this. Though as a whole it isn’t too bad, when piled on top of writing, deadlines, running the podcast (which I’m also dropping), and just day-t0-day activities, it was too much for me to handle. GAWD! Don’t you wish you could be 5 people at once? There are so many things I would love to do, but my writing has to come first. As such…

Effective January 1st, I will no longer be offering eBooks through my website. You will still be able to purchase signed print copies and I’ll be adding some vampire merchandise to the catalogue (like the vampire coasters). HOWEVER, I still want to provide VIP Club pricing for my devoted fans as a benefit. I might be able to offer special pricing through my website by using coupon codes with Smashwords…but I have to research this option. You would make the purchase here, and then I would give you a one-time only coupon code with Smashwords.

Right now you can get Midnight Conquest for FREE through the vendors listed above. Amazon, B&N and iTunes will deliver right to your device, so that’s much easier for you guys. Once the Les Petites Morts short stories are no longer on KDP select, I’ll be providing coupons through Smashwords as the freebies. So come January (heh heh…I said come), I’ll be changing the website offerings up a bit and the VIP Club FREEBIES page will get some new links.

Thank you all for being so patient and understanding during my trial period of selling books through my site. Though I would definitely earn more money through this venue, YOUR convenience is more important to me and getting your books loaded directly onto your devices is MUCH easier and perhaps worth the extra 49¢ you’d pay through the vendors.

That’s my two pence and I hope you enjoy MIDNIGHT ECLIPSE!

Arial :D

Midnight Eclipse – NOW AVAILABLE!

Midnight Eclipse - Book 4 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles

WOOT!

Thank you for your patience! Midnight Eclipse should now be available for download for those of you who pre-ordered. I’ll see if I can send out a reminder e-mail. I kinda screwed things up with not moving the pre-order date in my own system, so some people received the notification e-mail earlier than I wanted. Hopefully, I’m not going to send out more than one e-mail! Yeah…this process is soooo not working. Next release will be exclusively through the online retailers. No more buying books through my website. So sorry for the inconveniences anyone has experienced through me testing out this process.

Midnight Eclipse – Now Available for Pre-order for VIP Club

Midnight Eclipse - Book 4 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire ChroniclesI fell ill and won’t be able to do all my little settings on my website for Book 4 tomorrow as planned, so I’m doing it before I crawl into bed and drink lots of fluids. But good news for all my VIP Club members…you can now pre-order Midnight Eclipse a few hours early at the 50 cent price point!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your support!!!

To pre-order Midnight Eclipse – CLICK HERE!

PLEASE NOTE:

If you’d like, you can pre-order through these retailers (the links were posted earlier than expected):

amazon_kindle_squaresmashwords_48x48iTunes-Apple-button-48x48B_N_Nook_squarekobo_square

I have been getting a lot of e-mails regarding technical difficulties with the pre-orders. I have disabled Amazon Payments, which is part of the problem, but there have also been some login issues.

First, let me apologize for the inconveniences.

Second, pre-order through the other retail vendors is available earlier than planned, so if you are having problems through my site, alternatively, you can order through Amazon, B&N, iTunes or Kobo (links below). However, please be advised that the price is 99 cents (they won’t let me price books lower than that) and it won’t be available until November 11th. I am so sorry for the inconvenience. After this release, I will no longer be selling my eBooks through my website. Only the signed paperbacks. Until there is a way I can deliver my eBooks directly to someone’s device with little to no hassle, I will have to go back to delivering my books through the retailers. Sorry!!!

Bonded By Blood Characters - Davina MacDougalBio: Davina MacDougal

Lady MacDougal…not an easy life…

…but a life Davina wouldn’t trade for the world. Married to Broderick MacDougal for seventeen years now at the opening of Midnight Captive, Davina has had a passionate and loving relationship with her immortal husband. However, it has also been wrought with peril due to Angus Campbell’s relentless pursuit for revenge. In spite of the danger, Davina has learned to grow as human being as Broderick’s love has slowly coaxed her out of her shell and overcome the abuse of the past. And she is most grateful for the father he has been to her daughter Cailin, who is now a woman grown…and it is almost as if she was from the very loins of Broderick MacDougal, for Cailin has inherited his fiery spirit and determination to defend those he loves. They truly have become a close family in the shadows of the paranormal world around them.

Most Popular Quote from Davina MacDougal

“I want you to taste my soul, Broderick.” She held her breath for a moment before whispering, “Feed from me.”
Said to her husband, Broderick MacDougal during their lovemaking in Midnight Captive, Book 2 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles  - Click to Tweet

Facts About Davina MacDougal NOT in the Books

Davina is the granddaughter of Annabella Stewart, daughter to King James Stewart I. Annabella was once married to the 2nd Earl of Huntly, who divorced her on the grounds of consanguinity (having the same ancestry or descent; related by blood). At the time, the Earl of Huntly was having an affair with Elizabeth Hay. Before the ink was even dry on the divorce papers, the Earl married his mistress. Annabella’s heart was broken and she turned to her brother’s son, King James III, King of Scots, for refuge. Though they weren’t very close, James took pity on his aunt and accepted her back into the royal household. Seeking solace in the arms of another man, Annabella became with child, but died giving birth to Parlan Stewart, Davina’s father. James III was not known for being a very compassionate man, but wasn’t cruel enough to turn an infant away, especially one of royal blood, illegitimate or not. Parlan was raised in Edinburgh Castle and one year later, James IV, the next King of Scotland and Parlan’s cousin, was born and they became nursery mates. And thus is Davina’s loose connection to the crown.

Midnight Eclipse - Book 4 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire ChroniclesBook Blurb

Broderick MacDougal follows the familiar yearning of his soul to a fierce warrior who is as seductive as a siren at sea – and she is just as deadly. The world of the supernatural opens to Broderick as he not only finds himself in the midst of an ancient war of shapeshifters, but the devious Cordelia Lynn Harley has re-entered his life and has a few of her own surprises.

Born into a hated race of Norse wolf shifters, Celina Hunter knows all too well the dangers of trusting anyone other than her two brothers. And yet the survival of her family hinges on trusting the strangely familiar vampire, a natural enemy of her kind yet her tribe’s Shaman advisers confirm he is her soul mate. Enemy or not, Celina slips into the spell of Broderick’s promises of eternal love, gambling with all she holds dear.

Broderick and Celina are bound by a curse, but having come this far through the centuries, Broderick is not about to risk his chance at having his soul mate for eternity. The price, however, may be more than Celina is willing to pay as there is more at stake than just her immortal soul. Click to Tweet

Bonded By Blood Characters - James KnightlyBio: James Knightly

You had me at swords!

James Knightly didn’t have the greatest example of a father…at least until he met Broderick MacDougal, their new business partner. Together they formed MacDougal & Knightly Shipping Company. Alistair Knightly was a drunk and hard on his son James, but his behavior was manageable until his wife, Fiona, was murdered. James’s father lost himself in the bottle and eventually laudanum, trying to numb the pain of losing his wife. Unfortunately, that meant he neglected James. Broderick understood his business partner’s woes, so did what he could to be there for James until Alistair recovered from his grief. Unfortunately, the years of neglect dragged on. As a result, James ended up looking more and more to Broderick through the years. Because of their friendship and father/son relationship, James grew into a fine young man…someone Broderick was proud to consider as a good candidate for Cailin’s husband, and the main reason he funded James’s schooling to become a fencing master. Broderick’s daughter would need all the protection Broderick could provide.

Most Popular Quote from James Knightly

He swallowed hard. “If you do not close your bodice, my dear, I cannot be held responsible for my actions.”
Said to Cailin MacDougal right before she and James dueled in Midnight Captive, Book 2 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles  - Click to Tweet

Facts About James Knightly NOT in the Books

James and Cailin are at odds for most of the novel and one of the main reasons is Cailin is trying to be something she is not – a doting wife who knows how to embroider and run a household, a woman of her time. Cailin is everything but that, but she thinks that’s exactly what James wants. What she doesn’t realize, and why she and James are always butting heads, is her very actions are hitting hot buttons for her betrothed. Though this is hinted at a few times in Midnight Captive, it is never really spelled out: James’s father Alistair, as mentioned above, was a drunk and very hard on his son. He was also a gambler and a selfish man, squandering the family money on his habits. However, whenever Alistair was around other people – especially Broderick – he would pretend to be a loving and supportive father to impress other people. Such acts were strictly for his benefit. What pained James the most was when he was younger, he believed his father was being loving and supportive…and then his actions behind closed doors were the complete opposite. Confusing in his younger years to be sure, such behavior eventually brewed resentment in James. Fake people are James’s pet peeve…and why Cailin’s attempts at being someone she is not grates on James’s nerves so badly.
