Happy Anniversary to Meee – My 3 Years as a Published Author

My first erotic romp, Boss With Benefits, was published 3 years ago today, and one week ago today, my newest erotic romance, All Hands Below, went live on Amazon, woot-woot. So I’m delighted to have 2 reasons to celebrate! 

Of the first 3 erotic romances published through my publisher, The Wild Rose Press, one of them was picked to become an erotic audio book and was published by AudioMinx in July of 2010. Boss With Benefits became a #1 Bestselling audio book on Amazon and at several other audiobook e-tailers. Three years later, Jack and Keely’s office antics make this one of my most popular titles to date. 

In the summer of 2011, two more erotic titles were released. Going Greek’s hero, software developer Dmitri, and beautiful supermodel Marigold took you on a Tour of Booty to the beautiful island of Corfu, Greece. Private Dancer, my dramatic pole-dancer-with-a-heart story involves an exotic pole-dancer who dances her way into the bed, and heart, of wealthy, jaded Honolulu businessman, Harrison Allandt.

In August of 2012, I Indie-published Book 1 of a contemporary line of romances with a softer tone of seduction and sexuality. Called the Island Moonlight Collection, these books are stand-alone stories, and are racy and seductive with a softer theme of sexuality than my erotics. We had planned to use this cover for BBBG over the Holidays as a special promo, but it seems to be popular so we’re keeping it as is for now, AND it’s sale priced at only 99 cents! 

In December of 2012, Book Two in my Moonlight Collection rolled out. Doctor, Doctor is a humorous love story and a sexy-hot read about a busy bachelor M.D. whose orderly life gets turned upside down by his temporary hottie of a housekeeper. 

On February 10th of 2013, my fourth erotic romance hit the market. It’s titled All Hands Below, but I dub it High Seas Hootenanny, hahaha. Oh my. The love boat was never like this! The story whisks you off on a Caribbean cruise with a hot widow who’s looking for love in all the wrong places, while the very hunky Captain of the Sea Sapphire does his best not to be found by the sexy, blue-eyed beauty. Liam Rossi makes no secret about putting his career first, and while he lusts after the ravishing, sassy-mouthed widow, Evangeline Spencer, and plans to make her #1 in his bed, marriage is the LAST thing on his holiday wish list! *Like all my erotic titles, this romance contains graphic language and explicit scenes of sexuality that may be offensive to some readers.  

What’s next? Mistress at Midnight, Book 3 of my sensual Island Moonlight Collection is in the works. A marriage-of-inconvenience story, it stars one bold Greek businessman, a stubborn island beauty who works as a bartender, and a little baby boy that screams bloody murder every time he sees the hero, lol. What could be more romantic? December 2013 is the date targeted for Mistress at Midnight’s unleashing! Meanwhile, here’s a temporary image for Mistress at Midnight…

The release of All Hands Below makes 3 novels in the span of 6 months that’s gone to market, and as much fun and excitement as I had polishing and prepping those books, each one came with a Big Hairy Stressball! Oh my God, the heartburn and headaches…but we’ll save that for another blog.

So! I plan to take my time with Book 3 of my sensual Island Moonlight Collection, which I’m busy plotting and scheming to make it reach its sexy as hell capacity, and entertaining as fudge potential.

As always, mahalo for stopping by! And please leave a comment as I’ll be drawing names for the next week for an e-book (Kindle version) giveaway, winners choice of any title on my Amazon page: Lelani Black’s Amazon bookstore
