Only one blog left

Can you believe in a few days, you will have Unyielding Love – Nick & Bee’s Story Vol. 1 in your hands? You will actually be able to read an entire month’s worth of blogs all in one sitting. There’s a LOT happening in April and though you may be frustrated at times, you’ll be able to move on to the next blog and see its resolution. Of course, there is the issue of the book stopping with the April 28th blog. That won’t be resolved until May blogs kick in.

As you know, I’ve uploaded the book on all four channels – iBooks, Amazon, Nook, and Smashwords. iBooks will send it out on 4/1/2014, possibly earlier. Smashwords will have it available on 4/1/2014. Amazon and Nook will have it available at around the same time. I thought I’d give you a quick glimpse into what’s happening in April with teasers from a few of the blogs.

“Who are you going to the desert with, Nick? Why don’t you come to Europe with us?” Jane knew the answer, but she was making me spell it out. “Gimpy’s plane will drop off Laney and her party in Barcelona, take Max and myself to Florence, and then we’ll go pick everyone up in Paris.”

I gave Lily the grand tour of the house and walked her upstairs to the bedrooms. This was where it could’ve gotten awkward, but like her usual cool self, Lily made her intentions perfectly clear. “I hope this doesn’t sound too forward, but I’m willing to sleep in whichever room you’d like for me to sleep in. I won’t feel taken advantage of if you put me next to you in bed, and I won’t feel offended if you put me down the hall from you.”

Luke surprised all of us and announced that we’d spend five days at his home rather than a hotel. His family home was situated in the city-center, and even more surprisingly, his parents and his older brother were in residence. The home was large and comfortable, and the reception we received last night was one generally bestowed upon family.

“I know!” Shit. Sam had a glint in her eye I didn’t like. “How about if Lily and I both move into this room? We can share expenses four-ways rather than three. That would make everything so much cheaper.” I knew I wasn’t going to like her idea. “Lily will be hanging out here all the time anyway. She might as well live here and make a foursome.” Sam turned to Lily and said, “You said you were looking for a place to live, right?”

There’s so much more, but I think I’ll stop here. Wishing you a great weekend!

Good News!

ULVol1Unyielding Love – Nick & Bee’s Story will release earlier than 4/4/2014! With everything having gone so smoothly this time around, I pulled up the iBooks release date to Tuesday, April 1, 2014. Pre-order your iBooks copy of UL now. You might even get it on Monday, some time after you read the last March blog.

Though we are not done with March, here are the titles for April blogs:
New Perspective
New Partner
New Places
New People
New ‘Playmates’
New (ten-year) Plan
New Problem
Back to the Old?

I think of all the months, April might be the most explosive, most controversial, most talked-about month, yet! And…you get to read it all in ONE SITTING!!! April 1st, Ladies! (And no, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke.)

A few more words on the new book

Nick & BeeHello Ladies!

I wanted to reiterate bits of information that was already emailed a few weeks ago concerning Unyielding Love – Nick & Bee’s Story. Because we always have new Reiders among us, I have to repeat myself to make sure everyone is on the same page.

UL will release on April 4, 2014 on iBooks and hopefully for Kindle and Nook as well. iBooks is the only vendor allowing indie authors to do a pre-sale and thus, they are the only one with a specified release date. For the other e-retailers, I will upload the book and whenever they approve UL, is when it will go on sale. All dates should be within a day or two of one another.

As of April 1, 2014, Nick & Bee’s blog will be on hiatus for two weeks. For those of you who purchase the book, you’ll be able to read ALL of April. For those of you who’d like to wait for me, I will get you caught up with “real” time after I return from Europe. I would like to stress that UL is a compilation of all the blogs you have already read. It is NOT a new book. There will be two new prologue blogs in UL and the story will continue through April. Once I return, we will be back to our original schedule.

As always, feel free to email me (dw@dwcee.com) and ask questions. You can also pre-order UL at iBooks and guarantee yourself a 4/4 delivery date. I think with NPA, they delivered a day earlier. That’s all, Ladies. See you in about ten hours with Nick’s blog called Exodus. Uh-oh…is exodus a good thing or a bad thing???

Unyielding Love – Nick & Bee Vol. 1 + a Teaser

photo

It’s always a great day when I find my book on the front page of the iBookstore. As much as I’d love to be featured in the revolving carousel way up on top, I’m honored to have been chosen in the “coming soon” category three levels down. As you all know, Nick & Bee’s Story Vol. 1 is coming April 4, 2014. For those of you who would like to pre-order, here’s the link.

To celebrate making it onto the front page of iBooks, I think I will send out a teaser! This one will give you a different understanding of where Nick is coming from and some of you may even start to side with him. Then again, maybe not! Let me know what you think of the teaser.

“Would you like to tell your grandmother what’s bothering you? Is it Bee? I assume you two are no longer together?”

Did I want to repeat the story? The way Gram was staring me down, I didn’t really have a choice.

I went through the entire Nick and Bee saga and ended with, “So you see why Bee and I can’t work?”

“Do you truly believe you will stay single for ten years?”

“I don’t know. I’m only twenty-five, Gram. I don’t want to be married soon.”

“But your heart is already with Bee. Why fight it?”

“Because I don’t want my wife supporting me. I’m still a student. It’s fine for Laney to marry as a med student since she has an all-powerful husband who makes money in his sleep, but that’s not my situation. I don’t even have a home, Gram. I’m still living with my parents, receiving an allowance, and my only worry is studying for my next exam. I don’t want the pressures of making money, at least not yet, and I don’t want the pressures of taking care of children.”

Exciting News!

I have some Nick & Bee news for you ladies. Unyielding Love – Nick & Bee’s Story is available for pre-order NOW on iBooks. I know in the past, it was available for Nook as well, but I’ve changed my self-publishing methods somewhat, so it’s only available through iBooks. Here’s what’s going on.

Unyielding Love – Nick & Bee’s Story is on sale now on iBooks and will release on April 4, 2014. I will do my best to get it released on Amazon and Nook around the same time, but cannot guarantee what those booksellers will do. Originally, I’ve published through an aggregate seller (a middle-man of sorts) and they would publish on iBooks, Nook, and Kobo for me. While this was great, it gave me very little control over my own book.

For instance, I wouldn’t know how many books I’d sold till a month later. If there were any unfair reviews (like reviewing without having read the book), I couldn’t complain to anyone as I technically wasn’t doing business with the bookseller. If there’s an issue with formatting that’s an error on iBooks or Nook’s side, I needed to go through the aggregate seller, who then went to the individual company to get it fixed. After having self-published eight books, I decided, enough was enough. I was done feeling frustrated with the little control I had. And thus, I will now be publishing directly with each company. It’s a lot more work, but in the end, I think it will be worth my time. As of now, iBooks is the only company that offers pre-orders when publishing with them directly. So, for those of you who desire to purchase UL Vol. 1, you can pre-order and be guaranteed the 4/4/2014 delivery date.

As I’ve said in the past, UL Vol. 1 will be the same book except for the two prologue blogs. For those of you who purchase the book, you’ll get the entire April blogs on 4/4/2014. For those of you who choose to wait, you will have to wait a few weeks while I am out of the country in April. Our family will be taking a vacation during April and Nick and Bee will go on hiatus until I return. Of course when I get back, I will get you caught up, but I don’t wish to have to worry these blogs when I’m away.

In short, UL Vol. 1 publishes April 4th, the blogs will be on hold for a few weeks in April, I will be re-publish once I return. If you can wait, you’ve saved yourself $2.99, if you can’t wait to see what’s happened with Nick & Bee, download the book. I hope I’ve covered everything. As always, feel free to ask questions.
