I think I've figured out the pre-order thing. The second in my "Russian Love" series, titled Russian Gold, is available for pre-order and will officially go live on October 31, as promised. This short novel (around 53,000 words) is priced at $1.99 for the Kindle version.
I almost didn't make that self-imposed deadline.
I've been busy, folks, really busy. Then my supervisor for the part-time quality assurance (QA) job I hold took a well-deserved, 2-week vacation. So pretty much everything "QA" fell on my shoulders. I muddled through with the help of co-workers who graciously endured my uncertainty, but let's just say that my supervisor is forthwith and hereby banned forever from going on another vacation.
During this time, a client in Miami contacted me with a last-minute editing job. It's always last-minute for this client. So, I accommodated the additional work and put in some very long long hours. Without getting into details, let's just say that 1) I can edit in Adobe Acrobat, and 2) I loathe editing in Adobe Acrobat.
Needless to say, the combination of paying gigs and chasing down more work pretty much eliminated any time to devote to my own projects. But I scrounged out some time this past week and finally--finally!--finished revising and formatting the book.
I very much hope that those people who liked Russian Lullaby (Vitaly and Giancarla's story) will also like Russian Gold (Pyotr and Cecily's story) and even tell their friends about it. I really hope this book does as well as the first book. I will be ecstatic if it does better.
Like all my books, Russian Gold is available only on Amazon. It is only available as a digital download, simply because the cost of purchasing a printed version is prohibitive.
For those who care, the third book in the series will be Russian Dawn and focus on Latasha and Iosif. After that book is released--March 31, 2017, is the goal--I'll combine all three volumes into a "boxed set" which will be made available in print. At least, that's the plan.
As for now, I've got to get cracking on a fantasy romance. I'm 75,000 words into it and there's a good bit left to go if I'm going to get it out the door by December 31.
