And the title is …

I’ve been hard at work on the final book of the Power to Please series, and I’m happy to report I’m a little over halfway finished. I was kicking around several possible titles and have at last settled on the one that fits best.

The title of book four is “The Submissive’s Last Word.”

Now it will be possible to finalize the cover and I hope to have it up here in a week or two.

I don’t know when I might finish “The Submissive’s Last Word” and be ready to publish. It’s going well so far, although I can’t begin to consider a publication date before the rough draft is completed. I’ve got my fingers crossed to have it available before the end of summer.

It seems like the process is taking forever this time. I have to remind myself that I was well into the rough draft of the third book before I published the first one, “The Businessman’s Tie,” back in February. I actually began writing these books in the fall of 2012.

Thank you for your patience and for being part of Nonnie’s story. She has a lot of work to do before her journey concludes and her tale is told. I’d best quit blogging and get back to it! 🙂

An eventful Easter weekend

The promotional giveaway of The Businessman’s Tie at Amazon this past weekend was a huge success. Businessman shot up the charts and made it all the way to #6 on the free erotica best sellers list, far exceeding my wildest hopes.

I know that some people, including myself, will download practically any book if it’s free, then never get around to actually reading it. So every time The Playboy’s Proposition sells another copy, I know that the buyer actually read Businessman and liked it well enough to spend their hard-earned money to continue reading about Nonnie’s erotic journey. It’s terribly thrilling, and encouraging. Every single sale. Thank you.

Another happy event this weekend was that I finished the first draft of Book 3 in the series, His Name Is Sir. The editing process will take a while to complete but I’m confident it will be ready to be published before the end of the month.

As soon as I can, I’ll post a sneak peek of the first chapter on this site. I’m also in the process of readying the book cover and will post it here as soon as I have a final version.

Best of all this weekend, most of my family gathered together for a traditional feast and egg hunt. I don’t get to see some of them very often, and I greatly missed those who were unable to attend. Family is what it’s all about.

Well, that and the occasional mind-blowing orgasm with a sexy partner. Nonnie knows all about that last part. I’ll have to see about getting her some of the other.

Edit-schmedit

The Power to Please is a planned, four part series about the sensual and romantic journey of Nonnie Crawford. The first book, The Businessman’s Tie, is currently available exclusively at the Amazon Kindle store.

The second book in the series, The Playboy’s Proposition, is close to its final edit, and I’m growing impatient to have it finished and published. I’m not terribly fond of editing my own work, so it’s slow going right now.

I’m more drawn to creating than refining, and I’m currently about three-fourths of the way into the first draft of book three. Several plot elements that I set up in books one and two will be culminating in book three, so I’m excited to finally get the chance to bring those parts together. My desire to finish writing book three has undoubtedly slowed the editing of book two.

Nonetheless, The Playboy’s Proposition will be available some time in March, as promised — even if I have to tie up every single character in book three and stack them in a corner to wait until the editing of Playboy is finished.

Wow. I’d like to see the expressions on a few of my characters’ faces if I actually did that, Michael’s and Gibson’s, in particular. Undoubtedly, there would be hell to pay.

I’d stick Nonnie with the bill — heh.
