DEVIOUS
Chapter One

DAMON

I AWAKE WITH a start, my heart threatening to pound out of my chest.  Struggling to catch my breath, I toss back the tangled sheets and sit up in bed.

Even though it’s been thirteen years, I can still smell the smoke, feel it burning my lungs.

Blinking and glancing around at my surroundings, I begin to calm down, my breathing slowly returning to normal.

Another fucking nightmare.

Fuck, I can still hear their screams…even in my dreams.

Swiping a hand down my face, I breathe out a long sigh before glancing at the clock.  It’s only five a.m., but I have a busy day today.

Today is day one of my plan to destroy the man who took everything and everyone I ever loved from me.

Rolling my neck until I hear a satisfying crack, I get out of bed and head for the shower.  My mind wanders as I go through the cleaning ritual.  And even though, once I step back out, I feel clean on the outside, I’ll never be clean on the inside.

There’s a festering, gaping black hole where my heart should be.

But it wasn’t always so.  My mother always told me I had a heart of gold.  But things changed when she was taken from me at such a young age.  I became a hardened version of myself.

I became someone else entirely.

The boy that existed back then is not the man I ultimately became.  No, that boy died right along with the rest of his family that night.

I’ve worked with the hardest, dirtiest criminals in the seedy underbelly of New York City to amass my fortune.  It took me years to get to where I am now.  Everything has led up to this point, and I can feel the anticipation rolling off of me in waves under the stream of water.

After stepping out of the shower and toweling off, I brush my teeth and rinse with mouthwash.  Then, I take my time styling my hair, which is longer on top and shaved closer on the sides.  And finally, I dress in an impeccable three-piece suit that was tailored to fit my body.

When I glance into the mirror, I try to see what she ultimately will today.

Will she think I’m a rich businessman?

Will she find me attractive?

Will she want me to take her out on a date?

I need the answer to be yes to all of those questions, because I plan on seducing Victoria Ciccone.  She is simply step one in the grand scheme of things.

I have a plan in place.  A simple one.

Make her fall for me, so that I can get my revenge on Giorgio Ciccone, her father and the very man who destroyed my life and murdered my family.

Victoria is the key to getting my revenge. And when the final step of my plan comes into play…I’ll put a fucking bullet right between her father’s eyes.

He’s more heavily guarded than fucking Fort Knox.  And the only way to get to him is through her.  So, I will use his daughter, take what I want and not give a single fuck.

Claiming Her: A Reverse Harem Romance

The new flu vaccine that was supposed to save lives turned humans into bloodthirsty zombies instead.

For the past two years, Trinity Sanders has found herself fighting for her life in an apocalyptic world she never imagined would exist.

After she’s suddenly caught in someone’s trap, Trinity thinks her fate is sealed. However, when she wakes up in a strange house and in a warm bed, she’s surrounded by other humans, not the ravenous monsters she was running from.

The four handsome men who saved her are rough, rugged…and wild.

They’ve lived on their own since the apocalypse, surviving on the land and claiming whatever they capture in their traps, which now includes Trinity.

In a world with no rules, you claim what you want…

And they all want her.

Claiming Her is now live on Amazon and FREE with Kindle Unlimited!

Note from the author:  This is my first reverse harem/post-apocalyptic novel, and I will admit that it was not easy to write.  I totally went out of my comfort zone when I wrote this book…and you may too when you read it, but I promise you I made it the best book I could in this new-to-me genre.  I hope you’ll give it a chance and get a copy.  It’s free on Kindle Unlimited!

Remember Me Always is on Kindle Scout

KS_Promo4


So as an update to my last blog post, I am now three days into my Kindle Scout campaign.  I submitted my newest romance novel, Remember Me Always, into the Kindle Scout program.  My campaign started on April 1st, and it will run until May 1st.

My advice for anyone who is interested in submitting a novel to Kindle Scout in the future would be to utilize all of your resources right out of the gate. I did a lot of self-promotion the first day, and my book ended up on the Hot & Trending list.  There are only 20 books on that list, and Kindle Press shows the list on the bottom of every book page and at the top of their homepage.  So they are basically showcasing your book for you, which is a huge plus!!

So how exactly do you self-promote yourself?  If you have an email list, send out an email informing everyone of your campaign.  Tell your friends and family.  Remember that anyone with an Amazon account can nominate you, and every nomination counts!  Post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, etc.  Share your promotion in Facebook groups.  Join a Facebook RT team for Twitter.  There are a LOT of ways you can self-promote your campaign, but I will warn you — it is time-consuming!

[[ I recently created a Thunderclap campaign as well. ]]

So how is my Kindle Scout campaign doing so far?  Well, I’ve been in the Hot & Trending list for almost the entire time (save for the first few hours of my campaign on day number one).  As I said in my previous blog post, I think being on the Hot & Trending list is vital to having a successful campaign.

Also, I’ve had hundreds of total page views.  I’m not sure how much the total page views matter.  In my research, I saw that a person with 5,000 views did not get published with Kindle Press, whereas a person who had a little over 1,000 views did.  So as of right now, the total page views are not as important as the Hot & Trending list, in my opinion.

So I’m going to continue doing what I’ve been doing since it seems like it’s working…for now at least!  I’m excited to see how long I can keep on the Hot & Trending list for the rest of my campaign.  More importantly, I’m excited to see if Kindle Scout chooses my book for publication! 😉

If you would like to nominate my book, please go to my campaign page.  Thank you very much for your support, and I hope you enjoyed this blog post.  Below is some information about my novel, Remember Me Always.

REMEMBER ME ALWAYS

Synopsis:

PENNY

Five years ago, I left for college in New York, leaving behind my hometown and my high school sweetheart. I had a plan after I graduated; but somewhere along the way, my train, which was on a one-way trip to happily ever after, somehow got derailed. And so I’m back in Willowbrook, Alabama for one reason and one reason only — to confront Colton Crawford, the guy who broke my heart and a lot of promises. But instead of getting the answers I’m looking for, I only end up with even more questions.

Colton doesn’t remember me, and I suddenly lost the most important person in my life in the blink of an eye. I don’t know if I can win back his heart, but I’m going to try with every fiber of my being to bring Colton back to me.

COLTON

Everything changed five years ago, and my memory was basically wiped clean. A clean slate was exactly what I needed since I wasn’t able to save my brother in the accident that almost claimed my own life. Bringin’ up the past just makes me realize how much I’ve lost, and so forgettin’ is what gets me through the day. Not wantin’ to remember wasn’t really a problem until a pretty blonde by the name of Penny Preston shows up in my bar demandin’ answers…answers that I can’t give her.

I try to ignore the longin’ in my heart, but it’s almost impossible. Somethin’ keeps drawin’ me back to her…no matter how hard I try to push her away. Even though my brain can’t remember her, my heart just can’t seem to forget.

My Experience With Kindle Scout

KS_Promo4


Recently, at the suggestion of a friend and fellow author, I decided to submit my newest romance novel, Remember Me Always, into the Kindle Scout program.

Welcome to reader-powered publishing.
Kindle Scout is reader-powered publishing for new, never-before-published books. It’s a place where readers help decide if a book gets published. Selected books will be published by Kindle Press and receive 5-year renewable terms, a $1,500 advance, 50% eBook royalty rate, easy rights reversions and featured Amazon marketing.

The submission process is relatively easy.  You fill out a form with basic information about your new, never-before-published book.  What I really liked is that Kindle Scout will feature a “backlist” of your books currently published on Amazon.  I have a few books already self-published on the Amazon website.  So the fact that they are driving extra traffic to my other previously published books is a huge plus in my eyes.

Once you submit your book, they send you a verification email, which said it could take the Kindle Press team one to two business days (or more based on number of submissions) to get back to me.

It only took one business day for them to approve my campaign.  They scheduled it for April 1st, and it will run for 30 days through May 1st.  They emailed me the approval along with some links — a preview page (for my eyes only) and the actual link (which wouldn’t be activated until my campaign started) for the public.

Kindle Scout breaks down your campaign into two categories, which are you able to keep track of — Hours in Hot & Trending and Total Page Views.   What they don’t show you — How many nominations you receive.

I had done a fair amount of research before actually entering my book.  There appears to be some sort of secret algorithm that Kindle Scout uses in the selection process.    Now, in my research, I have heard several different authors say that Total Page Views do not seem to count all that much.  Someone with 5,000 views did not get picked, while someone with only a little over 1,000 did.  The only thing that seems to be prominent throughout my searching seems to be that this “secret algorithm” is exactly what it sounds like — it’s secret, and the authors have no way of knowing what the Kindle Scout team is actually looking for in making their decision.

However, one thing that seems to be the best indicator of being picked is that the books chosen appear to have spent a lot of time on the Hot & Trending list.  Only 20 books are chosen for that list, and it updates hourly.  What does that mean exactly?  That means you are going to have to do a LOT of sharing/tweeting/emailing during your 30-day campaign.  You are competing with all of the books in your category, but probably more importantly — you are competing to get into the Hot & Trending category and stay there for as long as you can.  It doesn’t guarantee a contract, but, hey, it most likely helps.

My campaign just started today, so I am anxious to see how it goes.  If you would like to nominate my book, please go to my campaign page.  Thank you very much for your support, and I hope you enjoyed this blog post.  Below is some information about my novel, Remember Me Always.
