Looking Forward

FB_IMG_1424159495770

I think that says it all, but don’t panic, I got this.

So it’s 2016 and rather than recapping all that didn’t happen last year, I’ve decided to focus solely on what is scheduled, or is at least a possibility of happening over the next 12 months… For starters: BOOKS!!!

I know, it’s been over a year since The Zen Lounge was published, but even though it doesn’t seem like I’ve been doing anything constructive, I really and truly have been writing like crazy.  Promise.

First up on the 2016 roster from my publisher is:

EUPHORIA  

Cannot wait for the cover reveal!!!  My very first strictly BDSM novel that features a full range of characters, covering POV’s from experienced Doms and subs, switches (called Neutrals), newbie subs and just a whole lot of wickedly sexy MF/MM/FF/FMF/Menage fun.  Oh and of course, there’s a plot in there somewhere…

Our possible 2016 appearances from my publisher are:

HEARTHSTONE ALPHA

As you can probably guess from the title, it’s a Paranormal Erotic Romance that has to do with – No, they are not werewolves, you watch your mouth.  They’re Ulfrinn, Odin’s wolves.  This is the first book in the series and also introduces plenty of other supernatural beings from Greek and Norse mythology – but don’t worry, it all takes place in modern times.  No time-travel whiplash here.

LITTLE QUEEN

Second book to the Ulfrinn series, but the last with the same two main protagonists.  Hey, the rest of the pack gets their chance in the cross-hairs spotlight, too, you know.

DARK DUPLICITY

Yes, the beginning of another Paranormal/Supernatural Erotic Romance series with some mild BDSM elements.  Unlike the Ulfrinn series, this one deals with notorious historical villains, literary legends and of course, my favorite: Fallen Angels, Demons and a parallel universe.  Just go with it, it’s fun.

In the meantime, I’m not only working on the next installments for those series, but I’m trying my hand at some Indie projects.  I’m hoping to get at least one of them out before 2017!  I’ll keep you posted.  Oh, and I’m completely bored with my blog design again, so that will most likely be changing again this year.

Also, look for many more book reviews from yours truly, I’ve been strictly posting them to Goodreads & Amazon, (don’t ask me why) so I’ll be bringing the old ones over and sharing new ones here, as well – and that leads me to my final message of the night…

A toast to all the awesomesauce readers for 2016: Here’s hoping your TBR list totally gets its ass spanked.  😉

A Bad Time To Be Broken

Hello blogalites! Holy happy meals batman, it has been forever since I’ve been on here and I won’t be long tonight. I’m currently pecking the keys like a novice, due to a pinched nerve causing pain and swelling in my fingers.  (I know, it’s so much fun!)  It couldn’t have come about at a worse time, either – the first day of my 8 week Blog Tour hosted by Goddess Fish Promotions starts tomorrow!  I’m really, really excited, aches and all!

NBTM_TourBanner_TheZenLounge

My first stop will be at Racy Recanteur, home of erotic romance author Normandie Alleman.  The tour is a rafflecopter giveaway, so if you want in on the prize, make sure to stop by RR to join in!  I’ll also be on the site all day to answer any comments or questions.

Another announcement I’d like to share (which is really late, my apologies) is that The Zen Lounge got it’s first review on Goodreads!  It’s pretty amazing! Okay it’s better than amazing, but you’ll have to see for yourself by following this little linky thing here.

Now, I’m gonna take my dysfunctional hands and go watch me some Supernatural… Mmm… Dean Winchester….

p.s. The tour hits a different blog each week, so make sure to check back here, on my FB or follow me on Twitter (@AuthorACMelody) for weekly updates and links!

Hope to see you tomorrow!

The Zen Lounge: First Book Review!

I just received my first book review ever and it’s actually not half bad! 😀

The Zen Lounge A.C. Melody 3 stars

 3stars

The Zen Lounge takes place in a well- established futuristic society that’s a cross between Blade Runner and a bordello. It’s so well formed that I found myself wondering if there was a novel before this that I missed. It throws the reader in with very little explanation, which is a little daunting, and has some very dark moments that allude to sexual abuse. The romance is a bright spot though, and the sex shows how some darkness can lead to the light. This is great for those readers who crave some sci-fi in their romance, but they’ll have to deal with potentially playing catch up with the world building.

SUMMARY: Voryk Kade uses his vast wealth to live the life of a billionaire playboy. His rare acts of charity serve as a buffer to protect him from the guilt of his sister’s death and his wealth helps keep people at arm’s length. When a business rival tempts him into his pleasure house, the Zen Lounge, Voryk expects only to find information to take him down. But the woman he meets in the Lounge, Nexlana, is mute. Her presence opens a Pandora’s box of mysteries, along with the unexpected possibility of redemption. (EREDSAGE.COM, dl $4.99) Mary Bennings
