Have you ever Thundeclapped? #TinaDonahueBooks #PromoInfo

Each day new promo tools become available for authors. For you, that might be Thunderclap. It offers a free and an expanded fee service to get the word out on your titles or whatever you want to be visible to the public. As you create your campaign, you can choose between 100 or more supporters. Each individual can support you on one to three platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr. If you don’t get the required 100 supporters, your advertising message isn’t sent out. If you do reach or exceed the magic number, the campaign ‘tips’ and your message is broadcast on your supporters’ FB, Twitter, or Tumblr platforms – or all three.

Last month I did a campaign that received 350+ supporters with a social media reach of 750K+. Very cool.

She’s just inherited a tattoo parlor…and the hunk who comes with it.

Lauren’s in a helluva mess. Not only has she lost her corporate HR job, she’s just inherited Wicked Brand, a struggling West Palm Beach tattoo parlor…along with the virile dude who runs it. Lauren’s full-figured, sorta pretty, and wanting him badly. Dream on. She’s here to sell the place as quickly as possible for some much-needed cash and score a new position in the corporate world.

Dante’s sinfully hot with a killer smile and beautifully inked biceps. He sees the heat in Lauren’s eyes despite her conservative appearance, recognizing the dynamite woman she could be if she’d just loosen up and have some wicked fun. Dominance and submission.

Unwilling and unable to keep their hands to themselves, Lauren and Dante turn to carnal games and seduction. Until lust turns to surprising need and friendship to something deeper that might just change their futures.

A willing slave to possession, punishment, pleasure…

Dreams of a manor where submission and dominance once ruled draws Faith to hypnotherapist Colin Danes. Potently virile, he’s instantly recognizable as her most cherished master from a past life. Desire smolders in his eyes, proving he’s never forgotten her.

Their carnal dance continues in the present and leads to their past when she was known as Eve. Through hypnotherapy, Colin brings her back to the Victorian era, a hidden estate where she eagerly submits to whatever he and her other noble masters crave. The exquisite discipline of the strap. Being bid on and mounted each night. Displayed and used for the enjoyment of all.

Most will take her. One will try to imprison her. Only he will be her true master in that life and this.

Featuring Make Me Breathless by Tina Donahue – contemporary menage

Blurb:

These rugged cowboys know what they want…the biker chick who just became their neighbor.

When Ally inherits a Texas ranch, she’s not about to trade in her Harley for a horse or a cow. However, she is taken with the McCrays, two deliciously virile cousins who own the adjoining land. Lucas and Colt are a hundred percent male whether they’re working their property or stripping to skin to cool off in the creek. Maybe it’s time to meet her neighbors.

Colt’s never known a woman like Ally, sultry yet vulnerable and totally clueless when it comes to ranching. Hell, what kind of man would he be if he didn’t offer to help? Lucas feels the same. Both guys want to give her some fun, Texas style. Long, hard, and thorough.

Ally’s certainly game for a good time, yet the sweetest surprise is what follows.

Happy Easter from us all #MondayRamblings with Doris (@mamaD8)

Hello, lovely peeps, Doris here.

I know we’re at the end of the Easter Break now, but I wanted to wish you all a Happy Easter anyway, whether you’re celebrating it or not.

It’s been a while because I somehow missed my last slot on here. My bad, I know, but my brain is like a sieve at the best of times, let alone when I’m in the middle of a story.

My muse has been even more demented than usual lately. I’m currently writing three stories at once…. yes you’ve read that right….

At least I’m almost at the end of one, a very sexy and tortured vamp. That just leaves the dragon and the alien story to finish. I refuse to listen to her whispering in my ear about other stories, she wants me to write, until I’ve managed to finish this lot.

Stop laughing in that corner.

In other news, my story The Hunt is part of Evernight Publishing’s upcoming shifter Anthology Owned by the Alpha.

Not every night you’re hunted by wolves, meet your mate and then run out on him…

Everyone knows wolves eat deer, so when Aubrey Verene accidentally stumbles into their monthly hunt, she runs for her life.
Straight into the path of the biggest wolf of them all.

Raphael Taylor, Alpha of his pack, is enjoying the thrill of the chase. He certainly doesn’t expect to find his own mate, let alone see her being pursued by the rival pack on his territory.
His wolf’s revenge is as swift as it is deadly.
No one touches what’s his.

Convincing his mate that being eaten by this particular wolf is a good idea proves trickier, never mind the reluctance of his pack to accept a deer in their midst.

Can this unlikely mating stand up to the challenge, or are they doomed from the start?

****

 

I had fun with that conflict, I tell you. Owned by the Alpha releases April 25th and is available for preorder now at a special reduced prize. Here are the deets. Just check out the lineup of authors!

 

 

The Alpha lives for the hunt…
Driven by instinct, an Alpha shifter recognizes his fated mate from one scent, one touch. He’ll pursue his woman, regardless of the cost, and anyone else would be smart to get out of his way. He won’t stop until he takes possession of his prize.
Although the hunter doesn’t need convincing, his mate certainly does. The Alpha will have to prove himself as a lover and convince his woman that he plays for keeps.

Monday Ramblings from Doris (@mamaD8) My Unpredictable Muse #NewSeries

Hello, folks, Doris O’Connor here with another edition of Monday Ramblings.

*snort*

This time I’m rambling on about my muse. You’ll have heard me mention before how unpredictable she can be. It’s also no huge surprise that she can never resist an anthology submission call. You just have to go and count the number of anthologies I’m part of, to realise that 🙂

So, when one of my  publishers,  Evernight Publishing, announced their submission call for a Dark Erotic Romance anthology,  my muse, of course, sat up and took notice.

You can check out the submission call here. It’s a tough call, for sure, not least, because I hadn’t written a dark romance before, though I do love reading in that genre. Right from the start I thought I would be tough to stick to that tight word count of 15 K max, but I sat down and started writing anyway.

2fc8e7dfd396221909a3a4edd0aa3506

With the delicious Sam Elliot as my visual inspiration for my hero Ellis Reynolds, aka Ren, a ruthless killer/cleaner in the employ of one of London’s foremost crime lords, my fingers flew. When my heroine Susie, curvaceous redhead and new waitress at the club Ren’s boss Owen Huntly runs his operations from, stumbles right upon one of Ren’s kills, he has a choice to make.

Kill her or claim her as his Prize. As the name of the story is His Prize, you can guess which option he chooses. 🙂

It became apparent pretty early on that I wouldn’t manage to keep it to anthology word count, especially when my heroine revealed a secret of her own, which means the start of a turf war, between Huntly and the neighboring gang, the Priestly brothers. Unlike Huntly, who has his own code of honor, twisted though it might be, the Priestlys are just plain bad news.

It falls to the Cleaners to… well clean.

And thus a new series was born, as one by one the Cleaners on Ren’s team  came forward to introduce themselves. I thought it would be fun to show them to you.

This is my inspiration for Owen Huntly

HUntly the cleaners

Clive Owen has just the right amount of calculated menace  going on here for that crime lord.

 

Ty Mason, Ren’s right hand man

 

TY the cleaners

 

Josh Carmichael, former MMA Fighter and the biggest of the Cleaners

The Synn brothers, Alex

cleaner guy 1

and James (their story will be m/f/m as they like to share)

cleaner guy

and last but by no means least the enigmatic and by far the most dangerous of all the Cleaners, Ace Jackson

cleaner guy 2

It will be such a hardship to stare at these guys while I’m writing I tell you. I completed book one in the cleaners The Prize yesterday. It stands at 29 K at first draft, and will be off to my beta reader soon, once I’ve tidied it up. I have the start to Ty’s story in my head, though I’ve yet to settle on a title. It will come to me in due course.

So, what do you think? Well, if nothing else I hope I’ve brightened your Monday morning with the man candy. I intend on subbing this series to Evernight. Of course they might not want it, but as I’ve hopelessly fallen in love with the Cleaners, it will most certainly find a home somewhere. I’m also toying with the idea of self pubbing them. Watch this space, as they say 🙂

 

For now, stay naughty, folks.
