Today is the launch day for my fourth and latest novel, Her Secret Island of Sex and Torment.
I started writing this last year in July or so and took some time to write as I was only writing on Sundays as I had the time to actually sit down and immerse myself in the characters and to have the time to write page upon page without interruption.
I have no idea where the idea for it came from, my muse, or whoever the hell she is came up with this idea in a dream a few years back. If I had billions of dollars I could retire to a tropical island and have men flown in for my pleasure only. I certainly never thought at the time I’d turn it into a book. But then I was a year or so behind writing and needed something, and this kept popping up in my head.
So, it was written.
Along with two non-fiction e-books which I have already released this year. Dream It, Write It, Publish It! An Australian Guide to all the hard parts no one tells you about Self-Publishing released back in March, and Why Positivity Can Be a Bad Thing! just two weeks ago on May 21st, my birthday. Both are available through Amazon and Smashwords. They will both be in paperback by the end of the year.
The e-books took about six months each, the novel roughly a year. By the time I wrote it, edited, had it assessed and now formatted and a cover done for Createspace it’s almost a year. I knew I needed that time to get it all done and had set the date for launching as May 1st. But I knew that the 21st would be the end date so it gave me leeway. Now it was pushed back to the 31st (yes, it went live on Saturday but today’s the official launch day as it gives Kindle some time to get it uploaded and me some time to put it up everywhere else) that still gave me the time to get it done. The paperback from CreateSpace will come in a couple of weeks.
And it is. Here’s the book’s blurb.
Hell is what they’ve been living for the last seven years and when four worlds collide in the same place at the same time with the same secret… hell hath no fury like a horny rich woman scorned
