Ah, hello very last minute post.
Last Monday I released the first Romancing the Page novella, A Hidden Hope. I posted about it on social media but never got around to posting it on my actual blog! Silly me.
I have made a subpage for my Laura Ambrose self.
If you’d like a 7k prequel short story to A Hidden Hope, featuring Natalie & El three years earlier? If you sign up for the newsletter you’ll get “A Frozen Night” in your inbox instantly. The newsletter is infrequent, mostly new releases or links to pre-order plus some recommended F/F media and the like. No more than one email a month.
Here’s more info about the first novella:
Natalie and El used to be writing critique partners, sharing their work chapter by chapter. Falling in love off-page was like the next part of the story. But after a huge falling out, three years have passed in bitter silence.
When they both appear at a science fiction convention in London, Natalie, a struggling writer, wants nothing to do with El, the hot debut novelist who sold her book at auction under a male pseudonym. But over the weekend, ignoring each other–and their attraction–proves impossible, not least because they have several panels together. Can El hope to atone for the mistakes of their past, and is Natalie willing to let hope fly?
So far, it’s done better than I expected, which is a nice surprise! Still relatively modest, of course, but I had a good burst the first few days and I’ve still had multiple sales every day since. Whoo! The second novella, A Perfect Balance, will be out on either the 4th or 11th of December.
My Patreon also helps a lot with the up-front costs of publishing these on my own. If you pledge you have access to craft posts, behind the scenes snippets, free copies of the novellas as a certain tier, and monthly breakdowns of my sales and what marketing I did for my self-published works and what results I noticed from each one. I’d love to have a few more patrons, so if you have a spare $1 to $10 a month, please consider joining me on that corner of the internet.
Lastly, I have an event tonight at Waterstones Prince St in Edinburgh with some lovely authors! Info pasted below:
