A Fantasy Come True

Long, long ago (well, about 5 years) I had a manuscript I absolutely adored--Fantasy Mountain--and it was out on query with a few "bigger" epubs. Well, some of them really wanted me to make major changes--such as removing the romance and subplots so that most of what remained was sex.

In the meantime, I contracted All Fore Revenge--another erotic romance--with Dark Eden Press, a very new publisher a friend had recommended. 2 weeks before All Fore Revenge's release date, Dark Eden closed its doors. And I got a contract for Fantasy Mountain with a more established, albeit still-very-small press. Luckily for me, Frank and Renee Rocco welcomed all the orphaned authors from Dark Eden, and I re-contracted All Fore Revenge with the new Lyrical Press.

Since then, I've written and published a few other titles. However, of all my books, Fantasy Mountain sort of languished in obscurity. The small publisher sold it at their site, and Fictionwise, and that was about it. When the contract expired, only its print version was on Amazon. Not what I'd call comprehensive distribution.

So now Fantasy Mountain has been re-edited, re-covered, and re-released, with my favorite publisher, Lyrical Press. It'll be available everywhere ebooks are sold, and since ebooks are the way of the future...

Yeah. I'm pretty stoked. (Book 2 in the Fantasies, Inc series releases this July)

So here's a little about Fantasy Mountain--and if you're a multimedia type, you might enjoy the book trailer.

Oh! And the first review is in--4 stars at Manic Readers, with lots of nice comments from the reviewer.

She arranges fantasy fulfillment for a living. Now it’s her turn.

Victoria has built a world-renowned business at Fantasy Mountain, the resort where no want is too wacky, no urge too unusual, no passion too peculiar. Her ability to create any sexual scenario has granted her everything she could want: power, money, independence. The one thing that remains out of her reach is the man she knows she’ll never have...and he happens to work just down the hall from her.
Brett has all but given up hope of breaching the wall around Victoria’s heart. In fact, he’s engaged to be married back in London in only two months. But he knows Victoria has desires; he’s seen them firsthand.
When a night of passion rekindles old feelings, can he finally fulfill the ultimate fantasy of the woman who’s made it her mission to satisfy everyone’s desires but her own? After all, whatever the erotic dream, it can come true at Fantasy Mountain.

Content Warning: Wild romps, no-holds-barred lust, and deep, meaningful lovemaking. A love story first, sparing no steamy details. Contains glimpses into very kinky fantasies.

It's 30% off at the Lyrical Press Bookstore this week (and I think at Amazon too).

Happy Monday the 9th!
