Product Information: The Virgin Billionaire Series…


Since I’m now posting more product information for all my books and short stories, I figured I’d better post this information about The Virgin Billionaire series, too. Sometimes it’s difficult to get all the facts out, and authors and publishers get busy and tend to take things for granted.

I’ve had a few e-mails from readers asking whether or not the books in the Virgin Billionaire series could be read as stand alones. In other words, would someone have to begin with the first book in the series and then read the others consecutively.

And the answer is no. Though each book follows a pattern in the series, each book can also be read on its own. You don’t need to read the first book in order to “get” the fifth. It helps, but I try to make quick explanations in all the books with back story, without getting too long and stopping the story. Also, there are no cliffhangers at the end of the books; no teases to get readers to buy the next book.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to continue to e-mail me. All e-mails I receive are treated with privacy and absolute discretion. You won’t wind up getting spammed.

Ravenous Romance: New York Reading Series in the East Village

There’s something new that’s been in the works with Ravenous Romance for a while. I haven’t been able to talk about it until they had everything organized and set up with dates.

You can read all about it below from the press release. Though I will not be able to attend the February reading due to other committments that were planned over a year ago, I will most likely show up at one of the future events. But I probably won’t do any readings. There are people who are far better at doing readings than I am, and I’m never too proud to step aside and let them have their fun. As a side note, the event is going to be held in a former illegal massage parlor (Oy!) in the East Village (really Chinatown). I know Manhattan fairly well, but when you get into those name streets way downtown on the fringes it’s not my venue and I’m lost. If you are so inclinced to go, here’s a link to the web site, Happy Endings, and you can check out the place yourself ahead of time.
