It’s Almost Time For You to Meet Mia and Her Men! (@cw1985) #reverseharem #whychoose

Hi folks,

I’m totally thrilled that tomorrow is the release day for Mia’s Men, book one in The Heiress’s Harem series! I had a total blast writing this book and am looking forward to starting work on the next book, once I have a couple of other projects out of the way. So, without further ado, here’s more info and an excerpt for you…

Blurb:

The Heiress’s Harem: Book One

Mia Harrington’s father just lost his brave battle with cancer. Naturally, she’s devastated. With her mother long-since dead, and no siblings, Mia has a great deal of responsibility to shoulder. She’s also the sole beneficiary of her father’s estate. Or so she thinks.

Unbeknownst to Mia, her father made a change to his will. She can still inherit, but only if she marries a suitable man within twelve months. If she doesn’t, her vile cousin will get everything. Determined not to lose her beloved childhood home, she resolves to find someone that fits the bill. What she isn’t expecting, however, is for that someone to be into sharing women with his best friend. In the meantime, Mia’s friendship with the estate gardener has blossomed into so much more.

She can’t possibly plan to marry one man, while also being involved with two others …or can she?

Pre-order now—coming tomorrow!

Excerpt:

Mia Harrington thanked James, her father’s butler—her butler now, she supposed—as she stood from behind her father’s desk in the estate office—now also hers, to welcome her visitor.

“Mr Lenton. Thank you so much for coming, and on such short notice. Please, come in, and take a seat. Would you like something to drink? Tea, coffee, water?”

The grey-haired, bespectacled man gave a tight smile and bustled over to the chair Mia had indicated. “Thank you, Miss Harrington. A glass of water would be fine.” He took a seat, then began removing files and papers from his briefcase and placing them on the desk.

Once Mia had delivered two glasses of water to the desk and taken her own seat, the solicitor fixed her with what was undoubtedly an often-practised solemn expression. “Thank you. May I firstly offer my sincere condolences on the loss of your father? He was a wonderful man, and he will be greatly missed.”

Mia barely resisted the temptation to roll her eyes. She’d received so many condolences and expressions of sympathy in the last thirty hours that she was in danger of drowning in them. In many ways, of course, she deeply appreciated them—it was heart-warming and offered the merest sliver of comfort to know that she wasn’t the only one who’d loved Edward Harrington and genuinely mourned his loss.

It was the sound-bite condolences that drove her crazy, from people that had barely known him, and those she’d never even heard of, let alone met. How could it possibly help Mia to know that Mrs Pipes from the post office in the village was terribly sorry for her loss? And it would only get worse once the death announcement went into the newspaper.

She mentally shook herself. While Mrs Pipes might not matter, Mr Lenton most definitely did. He had been her father’s solicitor for many years now, and was here to discuss her father’s will with her. And, although she’d much rather not be dealing with the fallout, would much rather Edward Harrington was the one in the office with her right now, poring over paperwork; in the absence of a time machine or a magic wand, she had no choice. She had to hear what her father’s wishes were, and carry them out to the very best of her ability.

Her remaining family members—distant as they were—thought it odd that Mia didn’t already know her father’s wishes. It wasn’t as if his death had been a surprise, after all. The man had been valiantly fighting cancer for two years, and finally it had won, leaving Mia devastated. Just because she’d known it was inevitable didn’t make bearing his loss any easier. In fact, the only thing that made it remotely tolerable was knowing he was no longer suffering from what, especially towards the end, had been horrific side-effects and discomfort.

It was that overwhelming love and admiration, as well as simply not wanting to contemplate the “after”, that resulted in Mia’s refusing to talk to her father about what he wanted to happen once he was gone. Years ago, when he’d re-done his will following his wife—Mia’s mother’s—death, he’d basically told her she was the main beneficiary, as well as the executor, and that his funeral wishes were all there in black and white. With that knowledge in the back of her mind, Mia saw no need to further distress her father, or herself, by discussing something she wished with a fervent—albeit pointless—hope that she would never have to deal with. But here it was.

“Thank you, Mr Lenton. I appreciate that,” she lied.

Looking Forward to 2018 #goals #writing

Hi everyone,

Wow – I can’t believe this is my last post here for 2017. This year seems to have gone so fast! But it was a vast improvement on 2016, so I’m definitely not complaining.

As is usually the case at this time of year, I’m thinking about my goals and aspirations for next year. The writing market is growing tougher and tougher, publishers are closing, readers can be difficult to find… and yet, I’m not giving up. Far from it. I still love writing, and I’m still doing okay. Far from making a living from it, sadly, but it supplements what I’m earning. Most importantly, though, I’m still getting great feedback. I get messages from readers saying how much they’ve enjoyed my books, I receive positive reviews, and that keeps me going.

At the same time, though, I’ve got to adapt to stay in the game. I have to do dull adulting stuff like pay bills, and buy groceries, put petrol in my car, feed the dog, so earning money is a must. Which is why I’ve started to turn, as I mentioned in an earlier post, to writing to market. There’s no way I’ll suddenly drop everything and start writing sci-fi (if I do, someone should probably send me to a doctor, as there’s a good chance I’ve been given a lobotomy), but my upcoming reverse harem series was written to try to entice the seemingly rabid readership of reverse harem romance fans. But I wouldn’t have done it if the genre didn’t appeal to me in the first place. It did, though, and Mia’s Men is coming next month – what a start to the year! I’m so excited about it!

So, for early 2018 at least, that’s where my focus will be. I have a couple of projects I’ve committed to, but otherwise, I’ll be working on Mia’s Wedding, book two in The Heiress’s Harem series, and then Mia’s Choice, which is book three. After that – who knows? I do have potential other reverse harem romance ideas bubbling away in the back of my head, so I guess we’ll have to see what happens! If people enjoy Mia and her bunch of gorgeous guys, then I’ll let my Muse decide. I’ve really enjoyed the time I’ve spent with Mia and the boys so far.

I’ll also be going through old contracts and possibly getting rights to other books back, so there may well be more re-releases dotted in amongst the new releases. Just a little housekeeping! 😉

Other that that – keeping my head above water, earning enough cash to go on a couple of holidays… anything beyond that is a bonus! So if you’ve bought one of my books in 2017, I say a hearty thank you, hope you enjoyed it, and that you’ll check out others.

Here’s to an amazing new year for all of us!

Happy Reading,

Lucy x

New Release – Another Dance, Lesbian Romance (@cw1985) #lesfic #lesbian #romance

Hi lovelies!

I’m just swinging by to let you know that yesterday I had a new release! Another Dance is a lesbian romance short story, which is mostly sweet, but with a dash of sexy. It’ll be my last release of 2017, but don’t worry, I already have books lined up for 2018!

Here’s the blurb:

Can another dance help them forget the pain of the past?

Eden and Janine were best friends throughout their childhood and early teenage years. Then something happened that shattered their friendship, leaving Eden devastated and confused. Ever since her efforts to sort things out with Janine failed miserably, Eden has avoided her ex-best friend. Unfortunately, she can’t avoid her forever, since Eden’s sister is marrying Janine’s brother.

Thrown together in the same room for the first time in years, can the two women finally put their issues behind them and move on? Or is their shattered friendship beyond repair?

Please note: This story has been previously published in an anthology.
