Back in 2016 I co-created a world with a fellow author. She writes sweet, I write steamy. Our idea was that we’d be able to offer readers stories for whatever their tastes were – sweet or steamy.
Turns out, that doesn’t work. By inviting fellow authors to join in and write in our world, we felt the joint sharing and marketing would help us each with our releases and have more impact. Wrong! Soon enough the sweet authors didn’t want to share the steamy authors’ books because their readers didn’t like them and then the steamy authors felt slighted and, well, you know.
Also, to appease all readers, our steamy covers had to be toned down to accommodate the world and brand. What happened then is that the steamy books were almost invisible to our readers because they didn’t reflect our brands. So, this year I’m rebranding my books and rereleasing them with new covers, new titles and new blurbs.
First up – Heart Thief, Bluegrass Security Book One. Heart Thief releases on August 6th. I’m so danged excited about the new covers and the new brand on these books and I can’t wait to share them with you.
ARCs are going out soon and I’ll be sharing the reviews with you as they come in. In the meantime, tell me what you think of this hot new cover?
