As of the wee hours of this morning, I became a member of the growing community of Hybrid Authors. We are both traditionally published and self-published.
Liquid Silver is my wonderful publisher and they will get the next two full-length novels in my Cancun series; Captivated in Cancun, and Crisis in Cancun. I have learned so much from Liquid Silver in the past two years and have become a better writer because of their magnificent editors.
But the novellas are mine to publish, and control the process.
For authors,Hybrid publishing means freedom, and responsibility. All the burdens of editing, cover art, formatting, posting etc. fall on our shoulders.
For readers, the change should mean little. You can find Conquered in Cancun on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Conquered-Cancun-Novella-1-5-ebook/dp/B00WQDUK2M.
Conquered in Cancun released today. It is a Contemporary Romance, not my usual Romantic Suspense. It is also VERY hot. I’d give it 4 flames out of 5. There is a great deal of hard language and sensual thoughts starting on the first page. I considered an excerpt but decided you would all need fans…or a cold shower.
After a deployment romance ends disastrously, Lieutenant Commander Caroline Hodges vows never to trust another man. Joining her roommates for some fun in the Cancun sun, she runs into Luke Thorstad, the lover who dumped her in Navy flight school. Could her luck get any worse? But the more time she spends with Luke the more old feelings resurface. A fling could be just what she needs to ease her heartache.
Luke Thorstad had been thrown into the limelight, and the arms of dozens of willing women, in flight school when he’d become an unintentional hero. His biggest regret, ever, was leaving Caroline Hodges in the shadows. Finding her in a Cancun night club was his chance at redemption, and maybe the future they’d been denied years ago. But he’ll have to break down the walls she’s built around her heart
