Can a small-town cowboy win the heart of a woman who doesn’t have one?EEF Graphic to love a mate png

Surviving charity functions by day and automatic weapons and death threats by night, Emma Carrington learned to be as hard as the men her daddy hired to protect her. Hell, she even carried a military grade stun gun in her Prada bag and could shoot just as well as any of her ex-military bodyguards if the need arose.

When a failed kidnapping attempt forces her to hide out in Somewhere, Texas, Emma finds herself stranded, floundering through cow patties, and desperate for a car. Who better to “borrow” from than the sexy naked man she sees turn into a wolf and leave his perfectly good pickup truck available for use. It’s not like he can drive it in his current condition, right?

College senior Noah VonBrandt knows the pack law better than anyone —only a bonded mate can know his secret. He watched his brother find the mate of his dreams and he wants the same thing, but you can’t just make the “right” girl appear out of thin air. To his surprise, lightning does strike. When a beautiful blonde woman trespasses on the ranch and sees him transform, he knows he only has two choices —claim her or let the pack erase her memories. But even as Noah fights to save her, Emma’s past is hot on her heels and out for more than memories.

But when fate steps in and his inner wolf won’t refuse the magick pull she has on him, Allan must confront his animalistic desires–whether he wants to or not.

Reyna DuBois has never met a man–or wolf–she can’t tame, but Allan just might be the stubborn exception to the rule. Refusing to give up, Reyna enlists the help of her inner wolf to seduce the ever-reluctant sheriff, promising this particular cowboy the ride of his life.

How do you sell books as an indie author?

What would you like to know about creating, promoting, publishing, and making a great living from writing fiction?

Big question mark on blackboard

What's important? What do I need to make a living as an author?

  • A great idea
  • The ability to turn that idea into a great book
  • Some sound business sense
  • Good Branding
  • An online presence
  • Willingness to put in the effort

One question I get a lot on the book side of things — “How do you come up with ideas?”

I'm going to be honest. I have more ideas pop into my head over the course of a week than I could write in a lifetime. The hardest part for me is sifting through the landslide and picking the one I want to develop into something spectacular that readers will love. I'm a storyteller. I always have been. If you are a storyteller, you know you are because the stories never stop coming.

Another question I get on the publishing side is — “How do you find people that want to buy your books?”

A lot is word of mouth. But I start with social media. I make friends. Join readers groups. Participate in clubs. I use Facebook and twitter marketing to put my name in front of readers that might like my books. This question is so broad that my answer could go on and on for pages. But I don't want to bore you with that.

There's a lot more details I could get into, but I'd really like to hear from you.

What burning questions do you have about how to be a successful indie author.
