New Release! Coy Trick – A Palouse County Romance 2

New Release! Coy Trick – A Palouse County Romance 2

New Release: Coy Trick!

cold-press-palouse-country-1Hello my lovelies! A few winters ago I wrote a sweet little romance short story set in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington called Cold PressI’ve been meaning to write a follow-up companion short in that same universe–indeed in that same charming small town called Belleville–ever since. A few days ago that sequel short went live, just in time for you to enjoy it as the weather (at least here in Washington) begins to turn dismally cold. While I no longer live in the Palouse, I have a lot of fond memories of the region and it’s always a pleasure to return there, even if just for short snippets of time.

palouse-2-resize-smallCoy Trick picks up not too long after the end of Cold Press and features both new and familiar faces. About a recently divorced literary novelist struggling with his ongoing attraction to the man who helped break up his marriage, it serves as the next step in this ongoing winter series, and introduces a new touch of magical realism. If that sounds up your ally, be sure and check it out!

Purchase Coy Trick for 99cent or read for free via Kindle Unlimited!

Coming in 2017

For anyone who missed my november wrap-up, I was super pleased to finish writing Vapor Trail, the second book in The Profane Series. Vapor Trail should be hitting shelves sometime near the end of January 2017 or early February, and I’ll be posting a couple of chapters in January for you to read so keep your eyes peeled!

Also in early 2017 I’ll be releasing a FOURTH book in the Blood & Bone Series, tentatively called A Sanguin Solution. I’m writing this novel right now and it picked up shortly after the end of The Symbiotic Law for those of you curious to see how Ethan Ellison and Pat Clanahan deal with the aftermath of that novel. I’m super happy to be diving back into these two characters and their struggles; it’s a lot like coming home to a good–if somewhat bitchy–old friend 😉

Lots of exciting books will be coming out in 2017. I’m excited. For updates on new releases make sure you’re subscribed here or on my mailing list.



Happy winter season to you all!

New Release & Thank You!

New Release & Thank You!

First off, can I just say WOW! I am blown away by all the responses I got on my reader poll and I can’t say thank you enough! I am so touched that so many of you took the time to vote and comment/email me your thoughts on KU, it was really informative to hear directly from you guys!

It was great to have a glimpse into how you guys prefer to buy books, and it was great to finally hear from some readers re: KU. A lot of times, as an author, it’s easy to get caught up only discussing these services, news, and industry changes with other authors. But it’s so important to connect with you guys–the readers–the people who we are writing these books for! 😀

The Kingdom of Pacchia Book 4: The Line of Allora

Amazon
Amazon

Switching gears a little bit, I’m pleased to announce the release of The Kingdom of Pacchia Book 4! This story picks up where THE HONORABLE BETA left off, returning us to King Aubrey and Lord Riven’s ongoing relationship and political woes.

BLURB

There’s no time for happily ever after in the Kingdom of Pacchia…

The King’s timely marriage to Lord Riven is only the first piece of scandalizing and worrisome news to break as winter stretches onward, a cold foreboding landscape of snow and strife. First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby and the imminent threat of civil war–at least so it seems for King Aubrey Allora.

Dive into the latest story from The Kingdom of Pacchia: The Line of Allora. This book features alpha/beta/omega dynamics, omega biology, and minor mpreg.

The Line of Allora is available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited–and is on SALE this week at a special 99cent launch week price!

In anticipation of The Line of Allora releasing later this month/early July, I’ve released a special omnibus collection featuring the first three novellas in the Pacchia universe.

This omnibus is available wide!

Shout Out For Reviewers

I don’t think I’ve asked for reviews in a long long time, but since The Kingdom of Pacchia has been out for almost two years now and I know many of you who follow this blog have probably read it, it would be awesome if you could leave a review on this new box set! If you’ve previously left a review on one of the individual books or on Goodreads, I would be SO SO grateful if you could pop on over to amazon and leave a copy of your review on the box set.

 

Happy reading and keep your eyes peeled for news about BOOK 4 Coming Soon!

Good afternoon everyone! So if you’ve been following along here the past couple of months you’ve probably seen (maybe even read 😉 ) a couple of chapters from my latest book MEDIUM RARE.

I’m very pleased to announce that that book is finally finished and available to read in full on Amazon! For the next week you can buy it for 99cents as a special introductory offer for everyone who follow this blog and my mailing list!

The Profane Series takes place in the same fictional universe as The Blood & Bone Series and can be read as a sister series in either order. You may notice several characters from The Profane Series who were introduced in previous Blood & Bone novels and vice versa.

Now, while a small portion (about 10%) of this book is taken from “The Suicide Case,” the whole story has been expanded and made part of a much larger story, so even if you’ve read “The Suicide Case” I believe there is a lot here for you to enjoy.

Happy Reading!
xoxo, Lia

Lia Looks Ahead At 2016

Lia Looks Ahead At 2016

Happy New Year!

While my roommate yells at Halo in the other room, I’ve sat down to reexamine my goals for 2016.

2015 was a weird year for me. I opened a brick and mortar restaraunt, discovered that I do not have the personality to work in the service industry on a day-to-day basis, and sold that business after ten months. I spent most of last year not writing and it was incredibly frustrating and painful.

I also experienced several personal challenges between family, friends, guildies, and roommates. Basically, 2015 was a really turbulent year!

NaNo-2015-Winner-Banner

But after a winning November 2015 NaNoWriMo, I’ve been able to get my writing back on track and finished the year with TWO new releases–crazy!

Pacchia 2 400x640   the hon beta

And I kicked of 2016, curled up in bed, typing away at my next full length release. I have a feeling 2016 maybe be a tough year fiscally (my living next September is going to be a headache thanks to the aforementioned friend-roommate drama but we’ll cross that bridge when it gets closer ;)) but I think it’s going to be an amazing year creatively!

Book Changes & The Profane Series

A few months ago I released a short story titled Lachlan Graham: Occult Investigations. Lachlan was written over the summer while I worked in my tea room and originally conceptualized to be written as a series of short stories in the same vein as Sherlock Holmes. At the time, I didn’t have much energy to write, so I hoped the short form would be doable despite my tight schedule.

A month after I released that short story, I learned that there was a buyer for my tea room. Within a couple of weeks, I was free of the responsibility and time suck that was my restaurant and back to writing full time.

I think you’ll all agree, that we love longer novels than short stories around here, and the BLOOD & BONE series remains my most popular work. So, with that in mind I had a tough conversation with my editor: What do I do about Lachlan?

You see, Lachlan Graham lives and works in the same universe as the Blood & Bone series and it was always my intention for his story to cross over with Ethan and Patrick’s. But in writing that first short, I’d had to trim down a lot–an entire POV in fact!–and I wasn’t entirely satisfied with the way my plan for Lachlan. My writing partner made things easy though, she looked at me and said: so turn it into a full novel, you’ve got enough story for it, right?

And I do. I have a LOT to say about Lachlan (and Vector!).

A few of you have noticed that Lachlan Graham #1 The Suicide Case is no longer available on amazon and that is because that short is being retooled into a much longer novel, which will be part of a COMPANION SERIES to the Blood & Bone Series titled: The Profane Series.

Confused yet? lol

tl;dr

I’m writing a new series (The Profane Series) starring Lachlan Graham and Vector Clanahan, that will interweave with the BLOOD & BONE Series. Furthermore, I’ve got a FOURTH B&B novel in the works 😉 I just can’t leave Ethan Ellison alone, okay?

Here’s a sneak peak at the rough draft for the updated Lachlan 1 cover

The Honorable Beta (The Kingdom of Pacchia Book 3) On Pre-order

For those who have finished reading All the King’s Men, I’m pleased to announce that Book 3, The Honorable Beta, is now available for pre-order. Grab your copy today and have it delivered to your Kindle on January 11th! (Just a little heads-up, despite what Amazon says, The Honorable Beta will be about 100 pages in actual length).

The Honorable Beta book blurb

Coming Soon!
Available to Pre-Order http://amzn.to/1T1AmES

With the court on the edge of chaos, Sir Elsa Riven and the Honorable Winston Dupuis find themselves caught between lust and duty as they chaperone King Aubrey and Lord Riven’s continuing courtship. What began as a release of sexual tension soon consumes the alpha and beta.

But social mores are against them. A relationship of any legality is impossible, and the two must decide what is worth fighting for and what is worth letting ago as winter settles over the Kingdom of Pacchia.

Contains A/B/O dynamics, including a relationship between a male beta (human biological normal male) and a female alpha (externally appears female but reproductively male).

Preorder here:The Honorable Beta / Official Release Date: January 10th!

From the Author

I always knew I was going to write THE HONORABLE BETA, but I won’t lie, the book concerns me a little. Not for the story it tells or the subject matter, but how it would be received.

When I began writing the Kingdom of Pacchia series, I formulated my personal headcanon for how the Alpha/Beta/Omega dynamics worked. And I knew from the start that there would be female alphas. And those female alphas would have cocks. But how would people respond to an outwardly female character whose biology was very alien male?

I’m still uncertain how Elsa will be received, but one of my policies when I write–kind of a golden rule to my own personal storytelling–is that I strive to be absolutely honest both to the story and to the reader. Therefore, rather than shy away from Elsa and Winston’s relationship I’ve attempted to shine a thoughtful and considerate light on it.

THE HONORABLE BETA fits neatly into the canon of the Kingdom of Pacchia and I have plans to revisit these characters in the future, but unlike ALL THE KING’S MEN, this story may be viewed as supplementary to the main canon. I hope that you will read it with an open mind. It is much more a traditional romance novella than Book 2, with plenty of hot alpha-on-beta action.

Happy reading, Lia

Cover Reveal: The Kingdom of Pacchia Book 3!

Well guys, I’m in the homestretch working on THE HONORABLE BETA, Book 3 in The Kingdom of Pacchia series. I’ve been a little side tracked with a super fun head cold but I think it’s starting to clear up so I can get back to my regular work schedule.

I had originally planned on releasing The Honorable Beta early next month but I’m the worst at sitting on finished projects so it looks like the release date is going to be bumped either to this weekend or early next week as a special Xmas gift to all of you guys!

In the meantime, here’s a sneak peak of the cover…the hon beta

New Release News! – The Kingdom of Pacchia Book 2 LIVE!

After more than a year’s wait, I’ve finally released Book Two in The Kingdom of Pacchia series titled All the King’s Men. This book picks up after The Omega Prince and features the developing relationship between Prince Aubrey and Lord Riven.

I want to thank all of my beautiful readers who have patiently waited for this sequel, it is LONG overdue. Good news though, I’m already working on Book 3: The Honorable Beta, which should be out in early January 2016.

Pacchia 2 400x640All the King’s Men Book Blurb

Prince Aubrey thought his family was safe following the arrest of his traitorous uncle during the summer’s Tri-fete, but he soon learns the man’s assassination attempt on the Hight King was only the tip of the ice berg.

The court is about to descend into chaos as Aubrey and his loyal companion, the Honorable Winston Dupuis, begin investigating Lord Riven’s claims that treachery and betrayal in Pacchia are much older than any of them had previously suspected.

Meanwhile, Aubrey continues to struggles with his duties to the kingdom and his duties to his own heart as the noble alphas begin circling for his hand in courtship.

Nothing will ever be the same in the mythical kingdom of Pacchia. Based on the a/b/o gender structure.

This story contains explicit M/M content.

Purchase on Amazon for $2.99

And just in case you missed book 1 here’s some info about that as well 😉

TOP mock 250x400The Omega Prince – The Kingdom of Pacchia Book 1

Once every three years, alphas compete in the Tri-fete to show off their strength, stamina, and martial prowess. This summer is the first time the competition has been held since the Crown Prince Aubrey of Lyle and Wescott presented as an omega, and there is much speculation he may take a mate from one of the alphas competing.

But there is more than friendly competition underway as the mysterious Lord Riven returns to court for the first time in nearly a decade.

Prince Aubrey must find a way to balance expectation and personal desire in THE OMEGA PRINCE, the first story set in the mythical kingdom of Pacchia. Based on the a/b/o gender structure.

The Kingdom of Pacchia Book 2: All the King’s Men ARC and Lia’s Updates

What Lia’s Been Up To

Wow guys, I have been super remiss in blogging this past year. But then again, I’ve been super remiss in writing this year as well. I had a fairly good excuse for this: in January my sister and I opened a tea room/cafe. I don’t want to go into the details, lets just say it <b>seemed like a good idea at the time</b> but once I was stuck working a 9-5, 7 days a week with no time or energy to write I realized just how important writing is to me.

We closed our tea room at the end of October, just in time for me to participate in NaNoWriMo and that has been SO MUCH fun!

After a very long 15 months I’ve finally finished writing the sequel to The Omega Prince! This story has gone through several changes since I began writing and evolved into a bit of a monster compared to the first book, clocking in at about 40% more words than The Omega Prince.

**CLOSED**The Kingdom of Pacchia 2: All the King’s Men – Advanced Reader Copies

Pacchia 2 400x640

All the King’s Men picks up very soon after where The Omega Prince left off: the Tri-fete has been cancelled, Duke Brier has been arrested, and Lord Riven remains persona-non-grata at the high court. Tensions mount as the high king calls for a gemōt, or a legal tribunal, to examine Lord Riven’s accusations against Lord Bourn. It’s got romance, action, political intrigue, and some hot Alpha/Omega loving.

If you follow my tumblr, you may have noticed that I’ve posted the first couple of pages from Pacchia #2 over this past week. Now I’d like to offer up ARCs (advanced reading copies) of the FULL novel to my readers. If you enjoyed reading the first book in this series and are interested in getting your hands on a free copy of the sequel fill out the form below and let me know before December 7th  and I’ll send you your copy as well as my thanks for sticking by me despite having disappeared for most of the last year 😉
