The Duke & Dandy: Review

 

Thank you so much @ THE QUILLE AND LAMPE

The Duke & Dandy Highwayman Trilogy Review

❤🖤❤

This was a beautiful intro to an amazing Authoress! It’s bad enough that I’m a total sucker for historicals and erotica but when combined perfectly? Implosion! I loved this book so much that I spent a week dipping into it again and again (let’s not mention that I read it from beginning to end twice immediately) because I was slain. From the first page, it delivered well-written dialogue that sucked me in. From the moment out heroes met, there are sparks and fireworks sizzling through the air and my veins. I felt almost sorry for Mr. Highwayman because the Potent Prince is a law unto himself with his own gravitational pull and a mind like a titanium trap…

Proof: I wrote a thing…

Hiya,  I hope you’re having a great weekend.

I spent last week attempting to format a pdf file for the paperback version of Duke & Dandy. It took me about six months to work out what Rainbow snippets entailed, so this was…um an experience. One preferable to my trip to Bristol; reached via Reading on the way, and Torquay on the way home. For US readers, this was akin to travelling from Tallahassee to Jacksonville via Orlando…with a teeny trip to Tampa on the way back. 

Anyhoo… after about seventy-twelve attempts…

This is my proof copy…tis humongous. I chose the size they suggested, so I knew how big it was. In theory. Tis bigger than a bloomin’ bible. 😳 I can scarce believe it ‘exists’…in the tangible sense.

I have yet to press publish…mostly because it costs so much to buy. I did another round of edits to remove the double spacing in the dialogue, in a bid to bring the page count below 500. The proof was only $6, but I can’t lower the royalty, which damn near doubles the price. Pft.

Ah well, no matter, twas fun to do… and bestest of all? My mum now has a copy to flash to her technosaur friends who want to know when they’ll get to see the ‘proper book’.😋

 

 

 

 

Tour Tales

Trilogy Tour

Hiya,

I’ve pressed ‘publish’ so with a bit o’luck, it should go live tomorrow and I will be able to make it free from mon-fri.  I’ve booked a mini-tour with the wonderful gay book promotions and will be here, there ‘n’ everywhere with the very lovely people listed below. Thank you so much, in advance, for having me.

THE DUKE SCHEDULE

I’ve updated the cover a tad, to differentiate it from The Prince & The Prowler a mite more, while staying true to the heart of the story, as ’twere. The cravat pin appears in all three books, so it felt the perfect cover for the trilogy.

The Duke & Dandy Trilogy

Hiya,

I’ve almost finished readying the Duke & Dandy Trilogy for release. ‘Twas written as a complete novel, but 100,000 words felt a tad daunting to attempt as a first foray into self-publishing. I simply wished to have some stories available for free & on KU, so releasing it as a trilogy seemed the best way to test the waters. Both in terms of familiarizing myself with Kindle Create & also offering a snippet of something that is…a mite Marmitey.

In the intervening months I have, many times, wondered if I should try to dilute my writing. I’m not sure ‘twould be possible, even if I wanted to. Every word I write echoes the way I think, so I’d need to rewire my brain first…a feat I’ve spent too long attempting in IRL to wish it upon my inner world, too.

Anyhoo…The Duke & The Dandy Trilogy, which has been revised & re-edited, is on its way. This is version I’d hope people had in their hands when they began the book.

Gay Book Promotions have kindly agreed to host a three day tour for me. Chances are, I may drop dead before then, largely on accounts of deeming it a damned fine plan to send off copies for reviewers. I fear the worst; from the dodgy formatting of those PDF’s to the contents therein. The finished book will have italics and dialogue where they should be, I promise. 😳 As ’tis a tadalot late to worry about that—or indeed, my marbles—this may well be the last blog I’ll foist upon you…

Incorrigible

Hiya,

Incorrigible by name… It mayhaps blew up Kindle Create yesterday. Just a tad. In a start-again-from-scratch sort o’way. On Ch 17 of 25. 😳🙄😳

Anyhoo…’tis up. At last…and I still have a plot, sort of, which is better yet. I’m not so sure the same can be said for Incorrigible, but, um…the trilogy is all done ‘n’ dusted. Bar the battle with KC to fandangle all three books into one. 😲 That’s sure to go well. Yup. No doubt about it. Tralala… 🙈🙉🙊

The Incorrigible & The Count

Hiya,

I’m hoping that The Duke & The Dandy #3 will be ready by the end of the month. Or thereabouts. This is my self-published series – to keep me busy between MLR books – so I don’t go batpoop twiddling my thumbs.

When it’s ready, I’ll make it free for the 5 days I’m allowed. I do believe the first two have been out long ’nuff to qualify for another five-day-freebie. If they have, I’ll make those free at the same time, perchance peeps wish to read them first.
