ALL I CAN DO IS KEEP WRITING!

WHAT IS THE ANSWER??



I woke up in a panic this morning wondering if I'd renewed my dental hygiene license last March! Yes, over six months ago. I couldn't stay in bed. I had to go through my files and be sure it was still valid...good news, it is!

Bad news...what does that say about my thoughts and dreams. Being an author was and is my dream. I'm living it AND loving it!! That said, like anything else in life, the future is unclear. There are no guarantees.

As I'm sure you've read by other authors, the market is constantly changing. Our sales are fluctuating and what worked yesterday isn't today. Well, I believe that's life! It isn't a phenomenon exclusive to the world of publishing. It isn't something the we as authors are experiencing and bloggers and readers are not...life is about change.

My goal...my dream is to change with it. I pray that in six months, a year, or six years, you will still recognize the name Aleatha Romig!

I pray that as I continue to write, you continue to read.

I also realize there are millions of GREAT authors and books. I know that I'm up against some stiff competition for placement on your Kindle, iPad, or bookshelf. That said, what gives me strength to continue my quest is that I'm not in competition with the other authors. I LOVE sharing the works of others. IMO no one reads one book. So, I promote friends as well as authors I don't know. If I like something, I'm hopeful my readers will to. AND I've been blessed with so many other authors who do the same. For that, I thank them! AND I thank each and everyone of you who has recommended my books to friends and family! This community has welcomed me and in turn I want to build it up!

I remember a patient telling me, when I was still practicing dental hygiene, that at her family Thanksgiving dinner, they were discussing Anthony Rawlings! I was shocked and thrilled.

While we all want to hit #1 NYT...what I love hearing is that my imaginary characters stay with you long enough to become a topic of discussion.

So...as we go into this very busy time of year, I ask you to remember to tell your family and friends to read my Consequences series:

CONSEQUENCES SERIES




and for a little more heat, my new Tales From the Darkside...first book (all in this series are standalones)...Insidious


INSIDIOUS



If you'll do that for me, for you, I'll keep writing. I'll keep working to bring you more of the characters you love and love to hate and create new ones to fill your thoughts and dreams!

Thank you for all you've done for me and my family...readers, bloggers, and authors!

For now, all I can do is KEEP WRITING!!! Stay tuned for an announcement about some more Tony and Claire...and a new project that is in the works!!

PROMOTING KITTY THOMAS

KITTY THOMAS HAS A NEW BOOK COMING SOON and IS GIVING ANOTHER ONE AWAY!!!

**GIVEAWAY CLOSED**

I have a not well kept secret...I enjoy reading dark twisted tales as much as I enjoy writing them. Kitty Thomas has been one of my "go to" reads ever since I read COMFORT FOOD years ago!

Well, I'm excited that she has a new book coming called BROKEN DOLLS. And do you know what? If you preorder...it will arrive to you on Christmas day!!! How's that for a great Christmas present?!!

The presale price is ONLY $2.99...but that will be going up AFTER presales!

Let me tell you about her new book, and then, if you comment below, you could win a signed copy of her current book BLOOD MATE! 

First, let me introduce...BROKEN DOLLS!!




Book Description:


Mina Calloway always finds herself in the hands of the wrong master: Gentle at first, then brutally sadistic and abusive. She no longer believes it’s possible to find a man who will be gentle with her. After seeing a kink-friendly therapist for months, the doctor makes her an illicit offer she isn’t yet smart enough to refuse: “Let me find you a good master.”

Brian Sloan is a borderline sociopath with a dark and brutal past. Only taking his sadistic urges out on the women at a submissive training house allows him to sleep through the night. When Brian sees Mina, she should be ripe for the picking, but her damage is too similar to his own. Can he fight past his demons to protect the one person he considers worth saving?

Note: This book happens in the same world as Guilty Pleasures with reoccurring settings and characters. However, it is not a direct sequel and it isn't necessary to have read Guilty Pleasures first. If you enjoy this book, however, you may also enjoy Guilty Pleasures by Kitty Thomas.

Book Description:


WARNING: This is a story about love, betrayal, redemption, and sanity. This is a dark emotional/psychological journey. This is not a "vampire romance". If you're looking for a vampire romance following traditional romance genre conventions, you will be disappointed. If you're looking for hardcore erotica you will be disappointed. If you're looking for something dark, literary, and psychological that explores human relationships without catering to traditional "happy endings", then you may very much enjoy this story. If you're looking for a mindf**k, then welcome to my world.

Blood Mate, a dark fairy tale...

Nicole has been happily married to big shot attorney, Dominic Rose for ten years, but soon after their anniversary he grows cold--as if she doesn't exist. Meanwhile, another man has been pursuing her far too intently for comfort.

August Corinth is a six-hundred-year-old vampire, cursed to kill and suffer the pain of his victims each night until he can find the one woman who can resist his thrall, his blood mate. Once he's found her, there are no lines he won't cross to claim the promised salvation even if it means taking away everything and everyone she loves.

Blurb:



Dark desires…Deadly secrets…Devious deceptions…Nothing is exactly as it seems in INSIDIOUS, the new erotic thriller from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author ALEATHA ROMIG! 

When a powerful man is willing to risk everything for his own satisfaction, only one woman can beat him at his own game: his wife. Or so she thinks… 

“Let’s start with you calling me Stewart. Formalities seem unnecessary.” 

Stewart Harrington is rich, gorgeous, and one of the most powerful men in Miami. He always gets what he wants. Anything is available to him for the right price. 

Even me. 

Being the wife of a mogul comes with all the perks, but being Mrs. Stewart Harrington comes with a few special requirements. I’ve learned to keep a part of myself locked away as my husband watches me submit to his needs. But the more he demands of me, the more beguiled he becomes and that’s to my advantage. So I keep fulfilling his fantasies and following his rules because he doesn’t know that what he’s playing is really my game. And winning is everything, right? 

INSIDIOUS is a stand-alone novel and the first Tales from the Dark Side title by ALEATHA ROMIG. 


**Due to the dark and explicit nature of this book, it is recommended for mature audiences only. **

Aleatha Romig and CJ Roberts Team up for AN AWESOME Giveaway!

Hello Readers!!

Did you know that INSIDIOUS isn't the only AWESOME release happening?  Oh, no!! Another author, one who I'm honored to have been compared to in the past and I hope in the future, CJ Roberts is having a release a week after INSIDIOUS with DARK DUET: PLATINUM EDITION!!

Have you met Caleb from her Dark Duet? Well, in the Platinum Edition...she has Captive In the Dark, Seduced In the Dark, Epilogue, AND bonus: Determined to Obey! And I'm lucky enough to have an ARC of Determined to Obey...OMG...you want this!

So, to tell the world about BOTH of these Dark, Mind ***k books...we're doing something AMAZING..we're teaming up and hosting a giveaway to our fans. We think you NEED both of these, you WANT both, and you can HAVE both, signed and on your book shelf! And because we LOVE you!!

We're "Team Dark Side" and we take ALL PRISONERS.

So, while CJ kicks back with her ARC of INSIDIOUS and I sit on the edge of my seat with my ARC of DARK DUET: Platinum Edition - why don't you enter our giveaway and join "Team Dark Side"

Let's Talk Price

Insidious is priced at $4.99 on all venues. I just want everyone to know that the price WILL NOT CHANGE for at least 6 months, and maybe ever.

That means that if you want to wait for INSIDIOUS to go on sale, you will be waiting at least 6 months. I appreciate that money is tight...believe me, I do.

I also know that if I go to lunch at McDonalds, I'll spend more than $5.00. If I get a Grande coffee at Starbucks, I'll spend more than $5.00. I could go on and on...

My goal for INSIDIOUS, this stand-alone erotic thriller, is that it fills you more than that lunch at McDonalds, that it gives you more of a rush than that coffee from Starbucks, and that it sticks with you longer than other uses of the $5.00!

I realize it is a leap of faith for you to give me that trust and that $4.99...

I hope that if  you have read my Consequences series you will agree that quality writing, editing, plotting, twists, and turns are more valuable than the said McDonalds or Starbucks.

I will leave that choice up to each and everyone of you. If you decide to give me that faith and dive into INSIDIOUS...I'm honored and truly believe you will agree!

This is what others have said about INSIDIOUS:

“Aleatha hooked me from the first page and kept me entranced till the very last word. Insidious was a journey through darkness and intrigue where the strength of the heroine was the shining light. I loved every thrilling moment.”—Pepper Winters, New York Times Bestselling Author
"Astonishing...Shocking...Remarkable. Aleatha Romig is a master of words." - Author Cassy Roop
"Intense, intriguing, incredible... insidious." - International Bestselling Author, S.K. Hartley.
“Fans of dark, twisted erotic suspense will be VERY happy. INSIDIOUS is a five-star, must-read winner!” – Bestselling author Tia Louise
Kindle Crack Book Reviews is officially obsessed with INSIDIOUS!
"Jesus woman, You have done it once again. You gripped me right from the start and refused to let me go until the bitter end. I can not wait for fans of The Consequences series get their hands on this one. I knew you were going to top Tony, I just was not sure how and you have blown it out of the park. Insidious is Amazeballs!!!!!!" Chris BlogEmporium


“If you’re a fan of suspense, raw emotion and thrilling ups and downs then you will not want to miss this dark and erotic tale from the evil wordsmith herself, Aleatha Romig. Insidious will creep into your mind, grab you tightly and not let go until The End. Even then you’ll still be thinking about this story. A must read." Kathryn Perez, author of THERAPY
