Cabin Fever
by
Amy Lee Burgess
@amyleeburgess
Blurb:

The dead body of an FBI agent is the last thing nurse Lucy Cameron expects to find on her daily walk near her mountaintop cabin in Colorado. When Nick Astin, the dead man’s partner, tells her there’s a murderous fugitive on the loose, Lucy is terrified.
With a winter storm on the way, Lucy is forced to offer hospitality. Considering her intimacy issues, being snowbound with a sexy man like Nick Astin is not Lucy’s idea of a perfect weekend. However, Nick has other ideas. Unfortunately, so does the killer.


Excerpt:

“Love’s Treachery,” Nick read the book title aloud, the bastard. “Betrayed by the Baron. Sugar Sweet. Naked Torso Tango.”
“Oh, shut your damn mouth. You made that last one up.” Mortified, I wished I was still out in the whirling snow in deathly peril of freezing to death.
“I’m not judging,” he said, straightening.
“The hell you aren’t!” In my agitation, I nearly dropped one of the pottery mugs I was moving around the granite-topped breakfast bar for some inexplicable reason. “Naked Torso Tango, my ass.”
“Sorry, that was a cheap shot. But seriously, don’t any of these romance novel heroes have heads?” Nick asked.

“They have heads,” I said, affronted. “Nice, normal heads. Not big, swelled heads like some smartass federal agent I know.”

The Beast Underneath
by
Julie Morgan


This Beauty and the Beast retelling doesn't pit the female Beauty against the male Beast, but rather the female beast within.

Time to say goodbye. Why I will never write, or publish, another 99cent book. #knowyourworth #timeforchange #wedeservebetter



Hey all,

Coming to you today with a little bit from the heart so I hope you'll hang with me and have a read. No, this isn't a happy post and for that I apologize but I do hope you'll read it anyway.

I'm hurt, yes, truly hurt by the lack of reaction to my newest release, Accidentally Forever, in the Coming in Hot: Rescue Me collection. This book was hard for me to write but I did it, finally. My mistake was thinking readers still wanted it.


Many of you know I have been around a long, long time in this business and I have always tried to be geared toward providing for the readers, first and foremost. Money has always taken a backseat to everything I have done, and that includes the house percentage in my publishing contracts. (For those who don't know, I run Naughty Nights Press and have published over 450 authors over the years, many who are still with my trad house, and several of which have gone on to become USA Today bestsellers under my tutelage.)

Over the years I've noticed one big and concerning thing happening: reader appreciation is fading. If a book isn't free or 99cents it gets very little attention.

Why does this disturb me? Because it's readers basically saying my writing isn't worth more than that, which just makes me wonder why I bother. If I can't measure up, if I am not enough, then maybe it's time to just pack it all in and leave the writing world.

When I first started NNP a decade ago, we created boxed sets and anthologies, most of which sold easily and in high numbers for no less than 4.99-9.99 or more. Single title books would fly off the shelves at 3.99-5.99, print books at no less than $10, and my authors actually earned a living.

Now? Well, let me tell you how things have changed. As a pub house, I offer to my authors: highly competent editors, designers, marketing and writing advice, often even just a supporting ear to get them through a tough spot in life or in writing, and so much more. I get their works out there to the readers while still offering a reasonable and decent compensation package. In a nutshell, as many of them will tell you, I go above and beyond what they've experienced elsewhere.

Why? Because of the love I have for the books, the appreciation I have for their talent, and the knowledge I've retained over the many years in the business may as well get put to good use, right? Because I know they're worth it.

One problem, even if I take nothing out of the coffers for my own personal use, I still have to pay the others who work for and with me. At 99cents this isn't even possible. That's less than minimum wage for a single person, let alone the several I have who are part of my amazing team. Don't get me started on how little that gives the authors, too!

Really? They should spend every waking moment slogging though the processes of writing, marketing, social media, trolls and reviews, drama and all this career entails, and not even make enough to pay the rent? Where did this world change in how much authors are worth? It's truly become something I could never have foreseen and it makes me heartsick to know each payday that I am going to suffer horrible feelings over those small royalty checks when my authors have busted ass. Now, some may say this speaks to my talent as a pub, but my authors and I disagree. If we did it years ago, sold our work for reasonable compensation, then this has nothing to do with my house's skills or any lack thereof.
What it does speak to is the lack of choice. Readers are being continuously conditioned to accept sub-par works, and to pay the minimum amount possible for those books. Problem is, now the expectation extends to high quality books, too. This is wrong on so many levels!

Then we have anthologies and boxed sets. Nope, not dissing them because I create them, too, so y'all just chill out. I am not, nor have I ever been, anti-indie. Quite the opposite as many will speak to.

Anyway, wow, so 99cents isn't even enough to pay for 16-20 novels and novellas, huh? Unbelievable. Then there's those who read the whole damn thing and then have the audacity and ignorance to return it! WTH? Return a huge collection for a refund of the $1 they paid to have so many hours to get lost in. Seriously? What gives? I'd like to return the $20k car for a full refund after I've used it to its capacity in 6 years, too, but...not realistic is it.

Don't know what I'm talking about?
On my most recent release, the CIH2 set, there's been 8 returns already. In two days. Nope, not formatting or any issues other than greed, or maybe it'll get pirated. Who knows anymore how this is justified. Amazon checked that collection before publication and they informed me of the only two issues of concern, which were minor and spelling related in half a million words, yes, two errors, so I know in advance it's not the set itself. Digital books should never be returnable unless there's a legit issue, but sadly Amazon disagrees and that's another fight for another day.






Why does this bug me so much? It's only 8, right? Compared to the thousands of sales so far in two days, the multiple #1 Bestseller orange tags, and the almost Top 500 rank we sported on Amazon for a bit, or the Top 50 listings on all other vendors, 8 returns should be a drop in the bucket, right?

Yeah, no. The contributing authors busted ass for months, yes, months. We started the organization of this collection last February, over a year ago. Writing the books and then setting up all the marketing and ads, posting, tweeting, doing takeovers and giveaways, hitting up friends, family, street teams and followers for a little share, paying fellow authors to include a mention in their newsletters--or watching, disappointed again as authors who may not have a gazillon subscribers are overlooked in favor of those who do (this in and of itself sickens me. When did it become more about how much you could be used than it did about lifting another up? I have never and will never charge authors I put in my newsletters, nor do I demand or expect a swap only from authors with an equal amount of subs--I've been around a long time so my lists are extensive and I wouldn't expect many have that high a count)...and all that was pretty much an exhausting waste of time for those involved, imho.

Why? Because for a set that readers clamored for after the first CIH last year, begging for a second one, this one hasn't done anywhere near what it should have and that is so much more disappointing than you may realize. I'm not going to go into the reasons why, cause I'm sure that's obvious, but I will say again what it means to me to see this.
It means we are not worth that single dollar for a half a million words or more. Not good enough. That thought process sticks with ya after a while, ya know? Not enough.

To those readers who supported CIH2, you remain amazing and in my heart always, the reason behind each book I struggle to write amid the daily chronic pain that only increases every year. I know many of you held out the hope during my six year hiatus and you knew better than me that I would write again instead of just being a publisher, and for that I thank you. You were right. I can't leave that part of my heart behind even if it's for a good cause. I will continue to write.

What I won't do, however, is release another one of my hard won works as a 99cent book. I won't devalue my books and put them in Kindle Unlimited, cause that is a death sentence in the making for many authors, imho, and I won't put my books on sale for that piddly amount anymore. I won't do giveaways of my books or any of the authors I publish. I won't publish their books at that low amount anymore. They deserve better, as do I, as do my editors and designers and marketing team.

These people work hard to bring you the top quality books we have for many years, and it's long past time we get back to showing that appreciation for that hard work with real compensation. Will we regret this decision? Maybe, but I doubt it cause my gut says the majority of the talented authors I know are going to follow suit soon enough. We've made a huge mistake in practically giving away our books for the last couple years, or in allowing the KU program to cheapen our works. A huge error in judgment that seems to have resulted in readers expecting free or 99cents, always, for every book, and not willing to pay for the work we put in. I'm appalled at some of the feedback some authors get daily when they don't price at 99cents! I've seen too many emails and it ain't pretty to know this is how much value is placed on our hard work.

We'd make more at a coffee shop or fast food joint so I guess for some of us that's going to be the option soon. It's long past time we regain the ability to know our own worth.
I dunno about you, but I am sure as hell worth far more than $1, as are my fellow authors and other industry professionals. The time to make change is here.


So, on that note, if you even read this far. (Believe me, some will have closed the page long ago) and cause what post would be complete without a little shameless self-promo:

This is the last chance readers will have to get any of my books at 99cents. As of Sunday they will all go up to a regular price, one I can afford to pay my people on. This goes for all my authors' books, too.

If you haven't bought it yet, better hit your preferred retailer for Coming in Hot: Rescue Me if you want to get my shifter paranormal romance, Accidentally Forever, along with 15 other incredible tales by some of the best authors I know, or my Gay Male Shapeshifter story, A Shot At Love, at the unbelievable 99cent price point.
We are worth more than that. CIH2 and ASAL are a literal steal of a deal and will be Sunday so the choice is yours.

Oh, hey, and I've put up my co-authored YA/NA Paranormal Suspense, Darkness of Light, too. Though that one is currently at the reduced price of 2.99 and won't be going less. That's my sale price. Kimberly and I are worth far more but we like to consider readers' needs as well. The paperback copy will be 9.99 if that interests you.

Yep, cause I'm nice I am including the links here for these books. If you click, great. If you don't, meh, you aren't my target market and I feel bad that you will miss out but there's nothing more I can do about that.
For all those who've already bought and begun reading, you rock! We appreciate you.

Have a good one! See you on the flip side.

 Paranormal Anatomy
by
Elvira Bathory
@ElviraBathory
Blurb:

With tension increasing between the six specialists that make up the Supernatural Bio-Medicine Department at New Hope Hospital Aleah Macleod continues to work closely with Dr. Morgan and her fiancĂ© Wyatt Masterson. The feline shifter is more than ready to bring the entire team on board with their studies of her blood but the Director of Supernatural Bio-Medicine has his reasons why that’s not a good idea. And William Wolfe, an aggressive feline shifter, happens to be one of those reasons.

William has become obsessed with Aleah since they started working together and since the announcement of her engagement to Wyatt became public things have become worse. Once he started rumors flying about how close she and Dr. Morgan were the rest of the team have regarded Aleah as the woman who slept her way into her position in the hospital. Trying to prove their theory wrong she loses track of what is most important to her; her job and how to save the supernatural community.

Excerpt:


The Director of Supernatural Bio-Medicine stepped into the room and took in the scene. “Still hoping that I will let the rest of the team in on what we have been doing over the last year and a half, Dr. Maclead?”
Aleah sighed as the analyzer buzzed, letting them know that the blood samples were ready to be removed. “Of course I am, Dr. Morgan. The tension between me and the rest of the team isn’t getting better, which is making it very hard to work with them. Now that we are getting more patients to study I need to be able to work with the rest of the team. They already feel that I am not a true part of the team since all I deal with is blood and I’m tired of trying to prove otherwise.”
Dr. Morgan walked over to the Hematologist and laid his hand on her left shoulder, “I hear you, Aleah, I really do. But until we figure out what is going on inside your blood we can’t include anyone else.”
Wyatt walked over to the two of them and took his fiancĂ© into his arms, rubbing her back as he tried to comfort her. “I know all of this is hard on you, love. But the Director is right; until we figure out what is going on with your blood we need to keep it down to just the three of us.”
Aleah took a deep breath and pulled out of her lover’s arms, grabbing the four tubes of blood out of the analyzer. “Logically I get it but on a deeper level it is all very frustrating. Where are the slides?”
Wyatt and Dr. Morgan shared a look. The two had been working with the Hematologist long enough to know when they were being dismissed and the conversation they were having was being ended.

The Endocrinologist handed a long, flat, glass slide to the Hematologist, who took it without a word and stalked over to the microscope. She knew that she wasn’t going to get anywhere with the Director about her request yet she made it on a daily basis. Aleah was tired of her co-workers treating her like she was a Typhoid Mary because she was working so closely with Dr. Morgan.

Author Spotlight:

Greeting: Hi, everyone! Thank you for having me. I’m so excited to be here today!

How long have you been a writer and how did you come to writing? 
I’ve been writing for about 30 years, give or take. I have always loved making new worlds and helping others escape reality for a few hours

How did you come up with this storyline? 
I have always loved the paranormal and when I started writing this story I realized that I could have a lot of fun with that aspect. Having supernatural beings born with their abilities seemed like a fun way to get in depth with the medical world 
             
What are the best and the worst aspects of writing? 
Best aspects of writing is that as you write you know that you are creating different worlds that have never been explored before and knowing that there is someone (or many somones) out there that will enjoy reading them. The worst aspects of writing are coming up with the blurbs because you have to sum your story up in like 500 words or less

What inspires you to write? 
To be completely honest, everything inspires me to write
How did you conduct your research for Paranormal Anatomy? I delved through my mom’s anatomy books and made many trips to the library to get the medical speech on point. I also spoke with a few friends in the medical field to be sure that I was using the equipment the way they should be. I also searched the internet and library for information on all of the animals I used for the shifters in my work

What are 3 of your favorite quotes from Paranormal Anatomy?
~The tension between me and the rest of the team isn’t getting better, which is making it very hard to work with them.
~Let me see if I can explain it in a way that will ease your mind; when the Supernatural Bio-Medicine department was put together it was because some humans in high places wanted an area where they could keep track of the supernatural within their midst.
~“I suppose neither of us could be bothered to pay attention to the other team members where sex and love are concerned. The two of us have been so into each other since we started spending time together.”

Anything more about this book (i.e. series?) from Paranormal Anatomy?  
This is a sequel to a book I wrote last year titled Blood Bio-Med. While it is a sequel it can still be read all by itself. I will say that in this book you find out why the main heroine is so different from her colleagues, which was a fun twist to write ;-)

What would your friends say is your best quality? 
My imagination, hands down. I can keep my friends entertained for hours just by coming up with plots for new stories and giving them a run-down as to what I see playing out in my head

Are reader reviews important to you? 
Yes and no. Why? Well, while reader reviews tell you how well you’ve written a story said story isn’t going to be everyone’s cup of tea. This may sound strange but the reviews I really pay attention to are the ones that tell me what areas of my writing skills need to be worked on
What do you do when you don’t write? Like in “Real Life” I used to be my mom’s caregiver before she passed away in February but now I work in a call center as a customer service rep. It is something I have done before in my life and something I am pretty good at. Best of all it has taken me out of the caregiving field which I don’t think I have the heart to continue working in. I am also a mother of five children (15 year old boy, 13 year old daughter, 10 year old daughter and 8 year old twin daughters) and six furbabies (four cats and two dogs) as well as a wife of twelve years to an extremely patient and supportive man.

Tell us about your other books? 
I’m not working on anything right now but I have lots of ideas written down to get started on in a few months. I DO have Blood Bio-Med and The Thrill of the Chase out right now. As I mentioned earlier Paranormal Anatomy is the sequel to Blood Bio-Med and I am really excited to be continuing the Beyond Medical Science series. The Thrill of the Chase is about a couple learning to live with the fact that the male counterpart is now a shifter. *leans forward and whispers* Can you keep a secret? I am working on crossing the world in The Thrill of the Chase with the world in the Beyond Medical Science series. There is a sequel to The Thrill of the Chase in the works (only in outline form now but it will be great when it’s finished, I promise). Oh I almost forgot about Love Story of a Reaper! That one will be released soon and it’s about a woman who discovers that she isn’t human ;-) There is also The Secret of Site G which is included in the Sin & Seduction box set that is available as well <3

If you could share one thing about yourself that you would like readers to know what would it be? 
Hmmmm, let me think about that for a moment. I spend most of my outline/planning mode for writing doing intensive research; the area I plan on making the story in (unless it’s completely fabricated), the animals I will be using in the story for the shifter’s animal forms, and the mythology behind the plot. I also try to do something that hasn’t been done before or not used very often.


It seems that my time is up but I really enjoyed spending this time talking with you 

About the Author:
  

Like most authors, Elvira Bathory has always loved to read. When she was younger she had always been creative and dreamed of being the next big thing in music but found she didn’t make the cut for that creative outlet so she turned to other means of creativity. She started spinning worlds and fell in love with the idea of being a writer. When she turned 28 years old she decided it was time for her to settle down and married the man who had been pursuing her for years. Shortly after the two got married they started a family and Elvira decided it was time to dust off those old notebooks that contained her creative words so she would be able to stay home with her children. Five children later and Elvira took a chance, submitting some of her worlds wherever she could. Despite the fact that she hasn’t been published for very long she hasn’t slowed down in creating her worlds. She writes in the erotic genre, with a paranormal flair. She prefers to write about shifters, using animals that have never been used before or haven’t been used that often and she loves delving into the research to make her characters come to life. She’s been known to write a contemporary romance or two but just has more fun adding the paranormal aspect to all of her work.
