Have you picked up your copy of An Elemental Water by Carol R. Ward yet? You can either grab a copy today for just $1.99, or you can enter to win a copy starting this Wednesday (4/16) on Goodreads...I'll post an announcement when it's up.

Long time no post - my apologies for that. As you probably already know, Brazen Snake Books is a one-woman operation, with contracted help for things like editing and cover art (though I do most of the cover art myself anymore), and frankly, I have trouble keeping up with everything myself. I'm working on streamlining the business side of things to make it easier to manage, so thank you for bearing with me while I do a little housekeeping.

To that end, I'd like to announce that our BSB online store will be closing at the end of this month. While I appreciate everyone who has bought directly from us in the past, I understand that most readers prefer to buy from their favorite retailers (or directly from their ereaders), and that makes sense to me. I don't generally buy from publishing/author sites either - I have a kindle and buy ebooks from Amazon, and I buy print books and comics from our local shops. The online store is costing us money that could be used for other things, like administration, advertising, cover art and formatting - which would give me more time to take care of things like our newsletter, this blog and our main site (which is sadly out of date).

Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be re-organizing the main Brazen Snake Books site to include genre pages that feature our books with links to all of your favorite online retailers for purchase. Once that's done, the BSB store will close. There will be Paypal purchase links on our site for those who'd like to order signed print copies of our titles.

So that's the big news for now...questions or comments are always welcome, and I'll do my best to answer them for you. We have some new releases coming up in digital, print and audio formats, so lots of great fiction coming your way - which is what this is all about!

Thank you for reading...and thanks for your patience through this transition.

New Release: An Elemental Water by Carol R. Ward

We are happy to announce the release of the third book in the Ardraci Elementals series by Carol R. Ward - An Elemental Water!



A secret lab.

A forbidden love.

An experiment out of control . . .

For Kairavini, the only life he's ever known has been within the walls of the compound; the only goal to be found a worthy participant in the Program. But all that changes the night he breaks into the records room seeking illicit information, and instead finds a guard named Taja, who teaches him the difference between breeding and making love.

Taja Windsinger is working undercover for the Ardraci Black Ops. Her mission is to gather intel on Dr. Uri Arjun so that his genetic experiments can be stopped and he can be brought to justice. Instead she finds Kairavini, the man she was destined to be with. But even if they can overcome her prejudices and his conditioning, there's still a perilous journey through an active volcano and a devastating tsunami to face. Can love truly conquer all?

An Elemental Water is available now in ebook at the special sale price of $1.99 (through April) from:

 Brazen Snake Books | Amazon | Smashwords

Today we're pleased to announce the release of Jasmine Betrayal, the third story in the BeauTEAful Summer series by Jamie DeBree!



His redemption will require more than a single cup of tea...
 
Genevieve Morano owes just fifty dollars to the lienholder of the diner her father left her. It seems like a paltry amount, but when a strange northerner shows up late one night, she realizes the situation is much more complex, and she'll have to rely on the handsome yet secretive stranger if she wants to survive. 
 
Max Westlake owes Pete Morano, and the only way he can pay it off after Pete's death is to protect Pete's daughter from the man hell-bent on taking her inheritance away. But when she finds out why he's working so hard to help her, the betrayal might just be too much for her to forgive...


Jasmine Betrayal is available for $1.49 in digital format from Brazen Snake Books, or your favorite online retailers: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | All Romance eBooks | Smashwords | Kobo.

Or you could sign up for the Brazen Snake Monthly, Variety News, or both, and get it for a discount when the newsletters go out early next week!

New Releases & Valentine's Day Freebies!

Whether you celebrate or not, we have a little gift for everyone today! First, a few new releases that will provide you with stories for every major US holiday throughout the year:

   

The Holiday Pact stories are now available...and for this weekend only, you can get them for free when you download them from the BSB online store! They're available for .99 at Amazon and Smashwords through next Monday (after that, the price goes up to $1.99 each), and will be up at all other retailers soon. The entire collection will be available in a single volume on Monday, Feb. 17th for a slightly different reading experience.

These stories follow Laura, Melanie and Jodi, three friends who make a pact to meet up every holiday in a different bar with the purpose of meeting a "man-for-the-night". Of course each woman has her own agenda, resulting in three very different yet intertwined tales that change their lives in ways they never would have imagined. You can read about each story below - and we hope if you read one or all of them you'll let us know what you think!

Each story stands alone.

Mr. Mysterious by Jamie DeBree (romantic suspense)
Laura Henderson is tired of being alone. She and her two best friends make a pact - every major holiday for one year they'll go out specifically to meet a guy, in hopes that they'll each find their one true love. It's not cheating if the guy she invites to meet her on their first holiday out is a man she's been chatting with online for months, right? Especially considering she doesn't even know his name.

But Mr. Mysterious is hiding more than just his identity and soon Laura is faced with a decision that will change her relationship with her friends - and the course of her life.

Get the book: BSB Bookstore (free!) | Amazon (.99) | Smashwords (.99)

Canvas by Alex Westhaven (horror/thriller)
Melanie Donner has certain...urges. Bad urges. Urges she knows she needs to get control of, or she's going to end up either in prison or dead. When her two best friends decide to make a pact to each pick up a guy to spend the night with on every major holiday, she figures it's a good way to set a few boundaries for her little "hobby". 

But right from the start, things get weird when a would-be student of her work shows up and won't take no for an answer...

The Naughty List by Trinity Marlow (erotic romance)
Jodi Perkins and two of her closest friends make a pact on New Year's Eve. They vow meet at a different bar on every major holiday, and each hook up with a guy to spend the evening with. But Jodi's personal goal involves an angle her friends wouldn't understand, and a hired professional to help her check the items off a special kind of list...
