I've been swamped as of late, so I've been slacking on reviews, but I'm starting to get back into the swing of things. I posted one review last night, and I'm hoping to have one up by tomorrow night, too. I'm working on my NetGalley books right now, and after those, I'll return to the review copies I've received from authors. If you're waiting on a review, I apologize. I fell behind for a lot of reasons: my trip to Atlanta, working on both Rebooted and New Beginnings, and drafting Stouthearted. Add in the fact that I've honestly lacked any motivation to read and/or write for a while now, I've been out of it. But I'm back now, for the most part, and I'm hoping to catch-up on everything.
The February giveaway will be up tomorrow, since February is over with, I'm just going to consider it a second March giveaway. White Hot Kiss will be the giveaway book, and it'll be international.
P.S. I've unpublished Is Love: Volume 1. I will be posting all of the novelettes on Wattpad. This isn't a series for everyone. These are short installments, and Volumes 1-3 technically act as a sequel to Volumes 4-6. Because of this, I've decided posting them on Wattpad just seems like the better option. The audiobook for Volume 1 will continue to be available on Amazon, but that is only because I can't unpublish that since it is under contract.
Description From Goodreads: Wanted: Adventurous, open-minded man willing to try anything…
a popular sex blogger, Beatriz gets paid to have orgasms. So being on
deadline the week of her sister’s wedding isn’t as rough as it sounds.
There’s just one hitch: Bea’s assignment is to write a review of a sex
position manual, but she doesn’t have a plus one to play with.
The good news: Ben, the one who got away back in college, is also attending stag--and he's as temptingly gorgeous as ever.
The bad news: Ben turned down Bea’s offer of graduation night sex five years ago.
The best news: He’s not planning on making the same mistake twice.
red-hot retelling of Much Ado About Nothing for people who love
Shakespeare but thought his plays could use a few more sex scenes.
This story was easy to read in one sitting, as it offers both humor and romance, but in the end, I felt as though something was missing. What? I'm not entirely sure, but something.
Bea and Ben had an "almost" thing back in college.They were best friends, but their relationship never seemed to cross that line, even though they had both wanted it to. Fast forward five years and Ben has a great job in L.A. and Bea is a Sex Education Blogger (one of her two jobs) in Washington, D.C.. It's been a years since they've seen one another, so when they end up at the same wedding together having thought the other wouldn't be attending, things are initially awkward. Until they agree to sleep together in order to review a book called The Manual for Bea's blogging job. From that point on, emotions end up taking over and changing everything.
I think my favorite part of this story was Bea's attitude. She didn't see a problem with being open about her sexuality, because she felt it was a natural part of life. She was very confident, which was a nice change from most stories I've read. (I really liked both Bea and Ben. They worked well off of one another.)
Would I recommend this story? If you enjoy romance, yes. It's a bit dirtier than most of the Red Hot reads, so if that isn't your thing, then this story isn't for you.
REBOOTED is out! I'm going to be doing promo over the next couple of months for the entire series. Probably a book blitz, and a blog tour. Money is a bit tight, since I just signed on to do a few covers for my upcoming titles, so I can't promise when the promotion will start, but I'm aiming for the end of March.
STOUTHEARTED: The cover is coming in mid March! I will be organizing a cover reveal, so make sure to keep your eyes peeled! (Seriously, it's going to be gorgeous.) Also, when I reveal the cover? I'll be revealing the paperback cover, which will include the cover copy. =D
AS WE FALL: I had no intention of working on this book until April, but I started drafting the first draft yesterday, and I kind of love it. I can officially state that it is about aliens, but it isn't about a girl falling in love with one. There is romance, but it is with a human. The aliens in this story are scary, and they kind of remind me of Alien. It's going to be dark, but there will be plenty of campy moments thrown in there to help balance it out. I shared the official teaser line, as well as a short snippet over on my Facebook page yesterday. ;)
NEW BEGINNINGS: I don't have a release date set in stone yet, but it'll be out very soon. I'm nearing the finish line, and I hope to have a description to share soon.
COLLIDE: The first four chapters are available to read on Wattpad now! (Here!)
THE FIGMENT STORY: I wanted to have this up & going in February, but my motivation has been gone. I've been struggling to write for the past few weeks, and well, I ended up ignoring this project. I promise to get back to it soon. Fingers crossed that I'll have the first chapter posted within the next couple of weeks! (It's a NA version of my vampire story, CRAVE, that I shelved years ago.)
Over the past year, I've accepted a ton of friend requests from my readers on my personal Facebook page. It helped me to connect with them, and get to know them, which was awesome. Unfortunately, I'm no longer going to be doing this. As I've said before, there's a lot going on in my life at that I can't really share publicly. Let's just put it this way: family issues and harassment issues. But readers can always contact me through my author page, e-mail, or Twitter. I try to respond as soon as possible, but sometimes it may take a day or two. I love you guys, so please don't think I'm trying to be a jerk. I'm not, I promise!
And February's giveaway will finally go live tomorrow. I'm still figuring out which book I want to do, chances are it'll be WHITE HOT KISS by Jennifer L. Armentrout. =)
Now that Nara and Ethan
are working together to uncover the Corvus’ secrets, they’re confident nothing
can stop them.
But while they’ve
learned to anticipate dark, outside forces gunning for them, neither is
prepared for the insidious evil that slithers its way into their lives, nor the
new challenges that surface so close to home.
Despite all the chaos
and turmoil around them, the one constant they can depend on is their devotion
and loyalty to each other. But as their relationship moves into deeper
territory, sometimes the toughest battles are the ones waged within.
While the hunt for
answers unravels more layers in the Corvus world, Ethan and Nara uncover new
truths about themselves and their intricate connection to the powerful raven
When boundaries are suddenly redrawn and control shifts, Ethan and Nara
will be forced to make choices that could bring them closer together or rip
them apart forever.

About the Author
P.T. Michelle is the
young adult and new adult pseudonym of Patrice Michelle, author of fifteen
romance novels and novellas. When P.T. isn’t writing, she can usually be found
reading or taking pictures of landscapes, sunsets and anything beautiful or odd
This book was hard to write.
I knew what the ending of the series would be when I started drafting Deprogrammed. But it didn't make it any easier to write. This book is emotional, and there is a lot that happens, but I think the payoff is worth it. Even if it hurts. (No, I didn't pull an Allegiant, don't worry!)
I hope you guys enjoy Rebooted as much as I do.
The eBook will be available for an introductory price of $1.99 until March 1st, after that it'll rise to $3.99.
And Submerged fans, your turn is coming! You'll get the cover for Stouthearted next month, as well as the description. =)
