And The Winner Is…

And The Winner Is…

The $10 Giveaway Winner Is…

But Wait… First…

I’d like to thank everyone who stopped by to share in my first guest post at Lisabet Sarai’s Beyond Romance. I hope you enjoyed it. I did. I had a ball reading all the comments. And I excitedly wait to hear what you think of Swap. There were some differing opinions on how things should work out for Hailey, Brent and Mike.

I would also like to thank Lisabet for inviting me to her blog. And if you haven’t visited Beyond Romance, you should check it out. Lisabet does a fantastic blog. It’s not only visually beautiful, but you can find some pretty steamy excerpts by a variety of guests, plus a smattering of Lisabet’s own take on a variety of topics together with extracts from her own books. It’s really well done.

And finally, as promised the winner of the $10 voucher is… J Wright picked randomly by Random.Org

I will be contacting you shortly.

Thanks again everyone for all the love and support.

New Author Growing Pains

How about those new author growing pains? Do you ever have the feeling you just don't know what you're doing? I think it must have been much easier back in the day when the publisher was in charge of all promotion for your book. This self-promotion thing is not as easy as some authors make it look. Authors write. About other people, not themselves. We want to be ignored, be the person BEHIND the book, not front and centre. It reminds me of that scene in the Wizard of Oz, "Ignore the man behind the curtain." The book is interesting, I hope; me...not so much. I would much rather talk about my characters. When I am asked to talk about myself or write a bio, I squirm at the mere thought. Or maybe that's just me.

Yesterday, I had all good intentions of trying something new and it failed. I had it set up, or so I thought, for months, so that on Pre-order day for Swap, I could post on my blog and the rest would take care of itself (with a little help from some friends) that I have been so lucky to find, while I stumble around this great new world of being a new author in the digital age. But I'm going to try again today, with the help of some fellow authors who are generous enough to bear with me for another day, while I try try again.

And if after you've come to this point, you scroll down to yesterday's post, you'll see what I meant to post yesterday. Thank you again, for all the people who have helped me and supported me. Especially my MuseItUp Family for having my back and picking me up when I stumble.

Thanks again,

Swap by H K Carlton My Debut Erotic Romance

TODAY! FINALLY! I'm so excited! You Can Pre-Order Swap at Total E-Bound at a discount!

I know it seems like a small step and it's not quite release day (well it kinda is) but after a little minor hiccup my debut erotic romance is on the way. Total E-Bound made some changes to the release policy so this is what the Swap schedule looks like:

Pre-Order Swap at Total E-Bound at Discount - August 20, 2012 - THAT's TODAY!!! So, go pre-order. What are you waiting for?

Pre-release Available to buy and download at Total E-Bound at a discount - September 3rd, 2012

General Release Date October 1st, 2012 - available to buy & download at distributor sites and TEB but no longer at a discount :(

So Pre-Order Now and take advantage of the savings!

And this feels like a real blog post too. So many firsts in the next couple of weeks. Just another step in this writing journey that started so long ago.

OH, and I do have a guest blog spot coming up, my first as an author, on August 29th. And there will be a GIVEAWAY! And an Excerpt from Swap. Stay tuned for further details.

So that's it for now. Hopefully soon, I will have more to talk about and some guest bloggers who will visit us here at Pick a Genre Already. But for now, to the faithful, thanks for hanging in and for all the support. I hope to have something to post at least once a week or more. So check back.

Thanks for stopping by,
