Cover Reveal: Delilah is coming!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]

Beguiling DelilahRomancing the Guardians, Book Six will be released by late June or early July. This installment of the paranormal romantic suspense series required extensive research since most of it is set in France. I’ve enjoyed learning more about Paris, where the story opens, and the breathtaking Côte d’Azur in the south of France, where Delilah and her hero flee in their rush to escape their enemies. Can’t wait to set this puppy loose!

If you like sexy romance, adventure, suspense and flashes of the supernatural as much as I do, I think you will enjoy this series. To catch up with the other Guardians and their loves, just click the covers and sample their stories on Amazon.

Meanwhile, here are a few snippets:

“Charlotte is an empath, for her, a single touch from another can send her reeling into an abyss of pain as she feels what others feel.”

“Tristan … too bad his very innocent touch sent her reeling and her explanation was completely unbelievable. Charlotte carries another secret, an oath to protect one of seven ancient scrolls has been part of her heritage for centuries, and now evil is coming for them and will stop at nothing to achieve their goal of wealth and power.”

“Ms. Horner takes us gently into her story by introducing the relationship between a sweet and damaged young girl with her kind-hearted companion and protector. As she fills out her world with more detail, her characters come to life and their true multi-faceted personalities are born! A fabulous read when blood and gore are not necessary in over-abundance and the romance is sweet, instead of raw and animalistic.”

Thank you, Dianne!

Oh, I almost forgot. Dianne will host a Book Giveaway for me beginning June 20th. Watch for the announcement on Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook and in my newsletter, Lyn’s Romance Gazette.

Release Day Minus 1

Well, actually minus one & one-half. TOUCHING CHARLOTTE releases on May 26th – this Thursday. It’s not too late to pre-order, which I would surely appreciate. As I mentioned in my previous post, pre-orders help boost a book up the ranks on Amazon, making it more visible for readers on release day.

As an incentive to pre-order Touching Charlotte, I’m making RESCUING LARA, the award-winning first book in this series FREE for 3 days beginning tomorrow, May 25th. I hope you will take advantage of this special offer.

Date Change & Why Use Pre-orders

I goofed!

When I set the release date for Touching Charlotte as Tuesday, May 24th, I forgot that big publishing houses often release new books on Tuesdays. It’s not a good idea for indie authors to put a new book up against the big boys, so I pushed back the release date to Thursday, May 26. I hope there will be enough pre-orders by then to boost my book up the ranks on Amazon.

The importance of pre-orders:

1. Pre-orders boost a book’s ranking on Amazon, B&N, Apple, Kobo, etc. on release day. The higher it ranks in its categories and in the site’s overall sales, the greater the chances your baby will be noticed by readers, which in turn may lead to more sales and an even higher ranking.

2. Pre-orders contribute to first week sales. Enough of them and your  book might make it onto a bestsellers list. We all dream of that, right?

3. If your book is traditionally published, a large volume of pre-orders may cause the vendor to place an order for more copies from your publisher — before your book even hits the shelves.

With these factors in mind, I plan to always offer my future books for pre-order.

If you are interested in reading Touching Charlotte, please, please Pre-order it now. You will make a real difference in the book ranking on release day.

How and when to put your book on pre-order:

I’ve learned it’s best to start your pre-order campaign at least 30 days prior to the release date of your book. This allows more time to spread the word to your followers and on social media, and for pre-order sales to grow.

You can upload your book as a rough draft when placing it on pre-order. However, in the case of Amazon, you must upload the final copy no later than 10 days before the scheduled release date. Why? Because Amazon doesn’t like authors to miss their release date and upset customers. If an author does not upload their final copy by that 10-day cutoff, they lose pre-order privileges for one year.

On Amazon, placing a book on pre-order is much the same as uploading and releasing it immediately. You fill in the same details, upload the book cover if ready, upload the book, set the price, etc. The difference is you indicate on the form that this is a pre-order submission. (There’s a spot for that.) And, if you wish to upload a rough draft, you also indicate that.

That’s pretty much it. Just make sure you follow that 10-day rule!

Cover Reveal & Pre-Order

I had fun with this 4th book in my Romancing the Guardians series. Covered new ground in New York City and the Gold Coast of Long Island, where The Great Gatsby was staged. The romance is sweet and slow to build at first, but I think you will enjoy Tristan’s dilemma as he tries to get close to Charlotte, who can’t stand to be touched.

The romance heats up and suspense builds with the arrival of unexpected company. Then watch out when the Guardians’ mortal enemies, the Hellhounds show up. A secret room in the old mansion and a wild ride through the night spell action!

What desperate measures must Tristan take to save his lady from the villains? Will Charlotte overcome fear and allow herself to love? Come join these two for a winter romp through New York City, ski slopes in the Catskill Mountains, and a lonely old mansion once the hangout of gangsters.

Order now and enjoy over Memorial Day!
