Out from the darkness of the warm and safe Troll River catacombs comes author S.N.McKibben with an award winning short story. Dangerous Gamble is an Elite: Dangerous fanfic of the Trials of Corran Antilles. Here's the blurb:
Corran Antilles is having a bad life.
Schlepping cargo for the Federation doesn't pay. Even worse, the corporate hauler assigned to him malfunctions inside Trevithick Station.
Before Corran's ship trouble costs him his life, he's able to land, but at the price of his job.
Down on his luck, with no money and no way to get home, Corran thinks he’s hit the jackpot when a stranger approaches and offers him the chance of a lifetime. But of course, nothing in the Federation is free, and there's always a catch.
If you'd like the free read--no strings attached (no signups, no nothing) click the cover to be taken to the blog where it resides! Even if you aren't an Elite: Dangerous fan, this is one story you don't want to miss. Happy reading!
Calling PAK fans! Book 5 of the Verdantia series is out and available on sale until December 15th for $2.99. This title will not be on sale for a long time afterward so get your copy now!
Do you remember Pansy from Hers to Cherish? Well, this is her story!
Freed after years as a sex slave, only a unique man could capture Angelica’s heart.
She never anticipated finding two.
Captain of the starship VNV Revertar, Magellan DeLan is immediately attracted to his priority passenger, the lovely, intelligent Doctor Angelica Giverny. Mage plans a careful pursuit of the petite beauty when they arrive in port, but landfall brings the unexpected.
Face-to-face with a man he once worshipped, Mage yearns to say yes when Tristan DeHelios blatantly declares his dishonorable intentions, but Mage doesn't trust his heart to withstand the fallout. This man's rejection had devastated him years before.
For Angelica, having Tristan DeHelios as her bodyguard is enticing. When he pursues her, too, her emotions seethe and tangle. How can she chose between the honorable and gorgeous starship captain and a rogue whose carnal dominance challenges and provokes her at every turn?
If the alien assassins stalking Angelica succeed, her answer will be moot.
This Erotic Romance series is one of the best! If this is your first time being exposed to Patricia A. Knight's Verdantia series, start with Hers to Command. It's Star Wars with sex!

As always my author had a fairly good idea of what she wanted on her cover. We did our best to accommodate her wishes within reason.
For Snow Blood: Season 2 we tried to get Brogio, Selene, Snow Blood and our main characters love interest--Nova on the cover. It was way too crowded.
We tried for Nova and Selene.
But after deliberation, we decided to go with the familiar element of Snow Blood on the second cover with Selene.
As our cover artist said from truenotdreams people might think we're being lazy putting the same image on the second book. But this isn't so. Blending the photo took precision and effort only a cover artist can achieve. The result was a great cover.
I really like the human element on the cover and since this story deals with Snow Blood helping Selene with her issues, it made sense.
Then there was the subtitle war.
On the author's camp the subtitle was too small. Nobody could read it. It MUST BE SEEN!
On the publisher's camp the subtitle was perfect because it didn't interfere with the title, didn't overpower the other elements but was still there.
There was a back and forth and finally, we did a Pickfu competition.
We here at TRP were prepared to go with which ever won. We specified that the subtitle was our issue and we got 50 results back. Each person voting commented on how the subtitle they voted for was easier to read. I couldn't help but laugh. Click the button above to see what I mean. :)
And now, with no further extravagance, we give you the contest winner of the Snow Blood: Season 2 book cover poll.
We are always proud of our covers, because we work closely with our authors to give them the cover they envisioned. However, experience with other author's gives us knowledge of what works and what doesn't. Together we find something our authors are proud of and can present to their fans with delight.
If you are interested in winning a $50 amazon gift card and would like a free copy of Snow Blood: Season 2, please join the launch party! Launch partiers got to see this cover exclusive before it went public. In the following week there will be more surprises for those who join the launch team, so come party!
My efforts are to make this a learning blog where writers can see the flip side of publishing. If you have comments that will improve your experience or have a certain topic you'd like discussed, please contact me through email - HERE.
