-Regency Sale

Howdy all!

You know why they call it the Dog Days of Summer, right? Because the cats wouldn’t stand for it!

Okay, I can hear the groaning from here. >^..^< Though I always thought the phrase just referred to dogs lazing around during the heat, a.k.a. long afternoon siestas, it turns out the phrase originated during ancient times from the Greeks and Romans, who were referring to the constellation Canis Major, where the brightest star in the sky, Sirius, makes its home and appears early morning in July.

Now that we all learned something ;-), a couple of Book Announcements:

Romantic Erotica ARCs Available

Releasing July 28, 2020

First up, releasing at the end of the month are three romantic erotica “books” (I always struggle calling short stories books). These are standalone stories currently available via Booksprout for folks interested in reviewing.

Braving Donovan’s
No Guts, No Gasms
A Heart for Adam and Rick

Note: Each story is the length of 2-3 standard chapters. Heart and No Guts are both reissues while Braving Donovan’s is a significantly expanded version of the earlier Innocent Corruption.

Regency Sale

A quick heads-up: both Lady Scandal and Miss Isabella Thaws a Frosty Lord are available for $0.99 for a limited time.



Stay Sane and Healthy

During these unprecedented crazy-arse times, I’m working to maintain inner peace and mental motivation. Fortunately, I’ve avoided binge eating brownies (a true accomplishment!) but am struggling to get my meditation practice back up and running.

I hope you and your family are maintaining whatever healthy boundaries and habits you can. Peace out.

What’s Inside

-Welcome
-New Website and Contest
-Lady Scandal Release
-Launch Team – Larissa’s Lions

Welcome!

A big howdy and welcome to everyone – both new readers and longtime fans. In these crazy times, I hope you and your family are staying safe, sane and healthy!

After a long hiatus, I’m thrilled to report a number of books are coming out the next few months, both Regency and contemporary.

Back in 2016, when I started finishing a couple things, I heard it’d be a good idea to save them up and release five or so books at once. Uh…I’ve since learned that’s not a good idea for someone like me. ADHD plus computer limitations plus loads of books on the brain do not make for a good combination.

Fortunately, I’ve got two wonderful ladies who are helping me out now – wave to Jen and Martinique – and we’re all working together to stay active on social media and, more importantly, get some new books published pronto.

As you can see by the picture of my office, I needed their help!

New Website

My new website is up and running complete with info on the five Regency books coming out this year (two reprints and the Mistress in the Making Trilogy). There’s also the first glimpse of the new pen name and contemporaries being released later this summer and fall under Larissa Lynx.

Of course, my Primary Distractors are happy to have their own dedicated page and stand ready to greet everyone, especially those of you who throw cyber treats their way.


Summer Contest – Enter between now and July 7th.

To get your summer reading started off right, there’s a great contest you can enter to win a WATERPROOF Kindle!

I’ve teamed up with Night Owl Romance and other authors to bring you the chance for some great prizes. You enter by reading romance book blurbs– hopefully finding some new great books in the process–and sharing the event. Learn more and Enter here!


Lady Scandal Release

First up on the publishing front is Lady Scandal, a reprint of the 2011 release with a gorgeous new cover and in paperback for the first time. Currently at $0.99, it’s a great deal for a couple hours’ escape.

Lady Scandal 2nd Edition Cover

Sparks—and stockings—fly when an interview for a husband turns into a game of forfeits, and a scandalous lady and one handsome rogue learn how very right they are for each other.

Lady Scandal is a fun and super sexy Regency-styled Historical Romance written using period-appropriate slang (known as cant) and words common during the early 1800s. Zeus, Juliet (and Larissa, of course) bid you “Sparkish fine reading”.

Launch Team

I’m building my Launch Team, affectionately known as Larissa’s Lions. These are fans who either purchase books near release day or receive Advance Reading copies and leave reviews, post on social media if it’s a book they really like, and generally help spread the word.
