A Cowboy’s Heart and What I’ve Been Doing

ACowboysHeart

 

More than a few people have been asking me about when I’ll be writing and publishing new stories, what’s happening with our beloved Kalispell Shifters…believe me there’s lots planned and coming soon.

Last year I decided to add the name of writing coach and mentor to my list of skills and long story short, setting up the business has taken me longer than I’d planned. Plus, I’ve been trying to play catch up releasing all the stories I got rights back to.  I thought I’d get back to my regular writing schedule after the new year but I then I updated my other web site and finally came down with the cold bug that seems everyone’s got which zapped a lot of my energy.

Well, enough with the excuses…I did re-release A Cowboy’s Heart (formely titled This Cowboy’s Heart), and I have two more stories to re-release this month.

I plan to add a new story in all my series and yes, I’m even thinking about a new one too.

So thank you for being patient with me loyal fans. I promise to post more stuff here too so if you have any writing related questions or anything you’d like to see, just leave a comment or contact me at vanessadevereaux@gmail.com. You know how much I love hearing from you.

Take care-Vanessa D XO

Happy Holidays

2017 is slowly coming to a close and I’d like to thank you for following my blog posts and buying my books.

I had planned to write and release more books than I actually did but as many of you know I started a new venture…coaching and mentoring aspiring authors, and that took up a lot of my time and energy.

In 2018, I get rights back to 15 of my books so I’ll be publishing those again, revamping most of them too. I also have ideas for a couple of new series and will be adding to my already established series so stay tuned.

I’m taking a break until January 2nd and hope to post often and stay more connected with all of you next year.

Here’s wishing you and yours the happiest of holiday seasons.

See you in 2018.

Three Upcoming Revamped Stories for the Holiday Season

The holidays are fast approaching and I’m currently revamping three back titles that should be released in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

I thought I’d share the covers with you here and I’ll let you know when each one is added to the book sites-

Stories I’m Working On….

I know it’s been a long time since I’ve posted on this site…and a while since I’ve released a new story. I’ve been busy with teaching writing workshops and also launching my own writing coaching and mentoring business (if you’d like to know more about that head over to http://www.susanpalmquist.com). I’ve been trying to keep up with re-releasing back titles…three coming in October and I’m also writing a TV pilot. So with all that going on you can imagine I’ve not had much time (or energy) to write new Vanessa Devereaux stories but I promise I will and very soon.

I might not have new stories this year but I will in 2018. I have an idea for a new erotica/erotic romance series set in the Old West which I’m excited about.Rose-petal with notebook.

I’m also planning to revamp this site and have some giveaways over the holidays. So please stay with me and I’d love to hear what sort of stories you’d like to see me tackle in 2018. Do you like erotica, historical erotica or are you a die hard bear shifter fan?

 

It’s a Party

It’s March already and it’s party time over at The Romance Reviews.

I’m taking part and March 21st I’ll be giving away an e-book which will be a copy of Callum, book one in my Cowboy Tough series.  In the meantime check out The Romance Reviews’ site for more goodies you can win.

Happy New Year and News To Share

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a happy 2017 to everyone.

I took a few weeks to recharge as this year is going to be a busy one.

I’m teaching at least two workshops every month which will be a first for me. I’ll also be trying to get my new coaching and critiquing business up and running and exploring new platforms on which to teach.

Bookwise, I hope to release at least one new title and one revamped title each and every month. I get rights back to about a dozen of my titles with Evernight Publishing and one from Total E-Bound all of which I either plan to rewrite and release as stand alone books or rewrite to fit into one of my current series.

Speaking of which, I’ll be debuting a new series very soon…it’s one of my current WIPs and that’s Cowbear Haven where I’m combing my love of cowboys and bear shifters together.

My next release will be later this month and is titled Erotic Bedtime Stories which is an anthology of some revamped older titles and I’m thinking about adding a brand new one too. Here’s a sneak peek of the cover.

You’ve probably heard about the closing of All Romance E Books which was actually one of my best markets for sales so if any of you purchased books from the site and are now wondering where to buy my titles, you’ll find them at most online book stores, including Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo, and also check them out at Smashwords too.

I’ll be giving the site a major overhaul soon and considering adding some more features for both readers and writers so please let me know what you’d like to see. Are you a writer who’d like tips about breaking into the publishing business? Or are you a reader who’d like to know more about what I’m working on and my writing process?

Don’t be shy and leave a comment because I’d love your input.

 

News, News and More News

One of my goals for the year was to start turning my books into audio format. I thought I’d take the plunge with one of my non-fiction books and How to Write a Romance Novel is now on sale at audible.com. The good news is I have a free copy to giveaway. Rules are simple just leave a comment telling me why you’d like a copy and I’ll pick the best one. Contest closes on Monday October 24th at Midnight Eastern. (and I’ll have more copies to give away very soon, plus a bunch of other goodies in my upcoming holiday giveaway). And beginning next year all my erotic romances and erotica will be turned into audio books too.

Second piece of news is, many of you know I teach and tutor and I decided to launch my own coaching business helping aspiring writers achieve their dream. The business was launched today and here’s the URL for the site if anyone’s interested http://www.novelworkshops.online.

I also want to thank all of you for following along with my posts, reading and buying my books and leaving the wonderful reviews that you do. You make sitting down to write each day so worth it-THANK YOU!
