Tuesday #RavenRamblings @RavenMcAllan ‘Tis strange, you know…

Hi all, this is Raven rambling.

On the strange situation I find myself in.

 

My last book was out just over two weeks ago. (Kera Faire, The End Game.) The one before it a few days earlier. (Raven, The Scottish Lord’s Secret Bride.)

I have two books in the editing stages with two different publishers.

And I know, unless things drastically change and I manage to sneak in a short story or something, my next release will be in December. Which is four long months away.

It’s not that I’m not writing. I am. I have a Regency (or two) to finish. But they are both longer stories and both for publishers who work to a greater timescale than others.

This doesn’t bother me, they’ll be out when they are out, and I know the spacing for those publishers and how to get my books to them to keep those spaces regular.

It just seems weird. No publication date in the offing, no inbox stalking…nothing.

And I bet they’ll come out within a week of each other as well.

It’s like edits, how whatever you do so they always drop into your inbox within a day or two of each other?

I try to plan things so I can have a nice non-stressful time of write, edit, and pimp. So far it hasn’t worked.

Ah well I always say I thrive on stress. (And coffee and chocolate. Oh and don’t forget the wine.)

Looks around Who has the wine.

 

Meanwhile, Happy Reading,

Love Raven x

#RavenRamblings on #NewReleases (@RavenMcAllan) AKA Red Bus Syndrome

Hi all it’s Raven here.

I often wonder why I can’t have a nice ordered everything spaced out life. Some people do, but sadly not me.

Take holidays, none for relatively ages then two close together. Oh I’m not complaining about having a holiday, I so enjoy them but that seems to be the way my life works. Don’t see my daughter for months then twice in three weeks, that sort of thing.

It’s the same with book releases, they come in a convoy, a bit like London buses. None for ages then two at once.

This week is no exception. Two books out, and then as far as I can tell nothing until December (unless I get something else written PDQ.)

(a…b i g…g    a    p…until December then a

However, this week I have two books out … okay no more pics (except covers) I promise.

The Scottish Lord’s Secret Bride and The End Game. One Regency and light, one contemporary and dark. Both set in Scotland. But there the similarity ends. They even have different author names. The End Game is written under my alter ego Kera Faire. Not because I want to disassociate myself from it, nothing could be further from the truth. But because the Kera stories are darker than the Raven ones.

 

So…

Secrets never stay buried for long…

Reluctant heiress Lady Morven Weston is tired of her mother interfering in her love affairs. At almost twenty-six there’s only so many more society balls she can attend before resigning herself to life as an unmarried maid.

But when Lord Fraser Napier, the man Morven ran wild with one long, hot summer, returns to Scotland, his shocking revelations change everything. Fraser never annulled their whirlwind marriage all those years ago!

Preparing to take up his ancestral seat, Fraser’s not letting go of his secret bride that easily—he needs an heir. It’s only a matter of time before Morven surrenders to Fraser’s seductive touch and finds herself in his bed…

As an undercover operative, your life is not your own and you can’t trust anyone.

Emma MacKay is only too aware of that, but it still sucks when you have to take out a friend’s fiancé, because he’s suspected of being a traitor.

Milo Dorn is more than an undercover operative. He’s one of the dispatchers, secret killers for the department.

When someone is feeding his pigs fresh meat he needs to find answers.

What he finds instead is the woman of his dreams. While the sex is mind blowing, and makes him want to throw away the rule book, he cannot forget the first rule of the game.

Trust no one.

When the truth comes out, can Milo and Emma find a way to each other, or are their jobs an obstacle to high to overcome?

The End Game is on.

Happy reading,

dashes back to do edits for the book coming out in December from Totally Bound. Fairground Attraction

Family time and a #NewRelease #RavenRamblings @RavenMcAllan

Hi all…Raven here…

 

This is a very short post this week, so please feel free to yawn.

I’m having family time, after having spent ten days in the Algarve. Hubby and I are just hilling, eating nice long leisurely lunches and debating over how to redo our dated kitchen. (Not sure that we will ever agree on that to be honest.)

I’ve got edits to do and a helluvalot of words to get down over the next couple of weeks. But this time is precious.

I’m really happy to say that my third book as Kera Faire, my darker alter-ego  had got it’s nice shiny star on Are. I’m really enjoying my foray into the darker side of romance. I never knew it was there lurking, but now I’ve discovered it, it’s so much fun. I love the way I’m able to swap from Regency to contemporary and all things in between.

I’m knee deep in contemporary edits for Fairground Attraction, that will be out in December, and getting stuck into a Regency that will be out around the same time I think. I need to get a move on, especially as I have another Regency (or two) to finish, and I have a hero niggling me who is also involved in the Dark Isle series by Kera.

These books are set on an island in the middle of Loch Lomond in Scotland, near where I live. It’s owned by the government, and it’s where very dark deeds happen… Great fun to write especially as I can envision which island J

So on that note I’ll leave you the blurb for The Jeweler and go back to my coffee and chat with hubby…

Killers don’t fall in love…

Kirsten thought her life was over when she met Mac, ‘the Jeweller’, a government sanctioned dispatcher.

Instead it was just beginning.

Admittedly, being kidnapped, tied up, and tortured with sexual pleasure might not have been the best beginning for a relationship, but their instant connection cannot be denied.

There is only the not so small matter of Mac’s job to consider.

He cannot possibly condemn Kirsten to a life lived in the shadows, because there would never be a chance off escape.

The choice is hers to make.
