Happy New Year! Strictly Business Updates and Special New Year’s Super Post!

Happy New Year, book nerds! With 2017 circling the drain, let’s all hope that 2018 will be a year with many good things to come. But while it’s hard to deny that 2017 was a year of a lot of bad news (to put it mildly), I find it healthy to remember the good things that came out of it. I survived a semester of grad school, moved in with the Boyfriend and celebrated four years together with him, and, of course, became a published author.

Speaking of, I’m sure that all of you are still wondering where Strictly Business is. I feel like I should explain. When I published Whip Smart at the end of October, there were a lot of personal matter in my life–which have only just now begun to settle down–which prevented me from publishing it when I had originally planned. I was disappointed with the rocky start to my romance writing career and was determined to get the sequel out there as soon as possible. And as a result, I feel that I rushed it. When I canceled the pre-order a little over a week ago to fix a mistake in the manuscript, I read through it again to make sure I hadn’t missed any other mistakes, and couldn’t help but think of the things I’d scrapped or changed to make sure Strictly Business was published “on time”, as well as a few new and pretty damn good ideas that had come to me after I’d already started the publishing process on Amazon.

Strictly Business Release Update… Part 2

Hello again, everyone. Unfortunately, I’m writing this emergency post to share some bad news: due to unexpected technical difficulties, I’ve had to cancel the pre-order for Strictly Business for Dec. 27th. Long story short, I belatedly noticed a rather serious error with the “final” draft I’d uploaded to Amazon, and unfortunately wouldn’t have been able to upload the correct final draft before the deadline for the pre-order. All I can do is apologize to those of you who did pre-order the book and were looking forward to its release on the 27th. However, I will say that the book should be live on Amazon by Dec. 30th, and that both it and Whip Smart will be available for $0.99 for the first week of its release. Also, anyone currently subscribed to my mailing list will receive a free review copy of Strictly Business before release day.

Thank you so much again to all of you who have stuck by me and patiently waited for this next book. I know I’ve put you through the wringer, but I can’t tell you how grateful I am to all of you. Things have been tough for me in both my personal and writing life these past few months, but so far things are looking up for next year, and I look forward to continuing to share my writing and publishing adventures with you guys in 2018. Until then, Merry Christmas and happy reading!

Strictly Business Release Update

Hello again, fellow book nerds! Siena here again with some more news regarding my fast-approaching release of Strictly Business, the continuation of Eric and Tera’s story that began in Whip Smart. Unfortunately, due to some unexpected family-related setbacks once again, the release date has to be pushed back until the 26th. However, it will be available for pre-order on Amazon starting tomorrow- Dec. 22nd- for $0.99, and will be available at that price until the 27th. In addition, Whip Smart will be available for free between tomorrow and the 26th! Also also, if you haven’t yet already, there’s still time for you to sign up for my mailing list for your chance to receive a free ARC copy of Strictly Business before it goes live!

Sorry again for all the delays, but I promise you that it will be worth the wait. I’m very excited to share the continuing story of Tera and Eric with you. Happy Reading… 😉

ANNOUNCEMENT: Whip Smart Postponed Until Oct. 25

Hello, fellow book nerds! If you’ve been following me on Twitter, then you know by now that I haven’t been able to shut up about my impending release date, which would have been today. Unfortunately, while I have been eagerly and nervously awaiting this day for months and months, some serious life circumstances have come up, and I will be pushing my release of Whip Smart to October 25, this coming week. I had originally thought that I could have it out there by tomorrow, but sadly that won’t be happening. I am very sad that I won’t be able to share the story that has been my passion for the last year with you just yet, but I hope you can understand that there are important things I need to take care of in my personal life that I must put before my book right now.

For those of you who’ve been following me and oh-so-patiently waiting, thank you so much for your support. I hope you’re all as excited to meet Tera and Eric as I am to share their story with you.

Thanks, and happy reading. 😉

 

Whip Smart- Excerpt and Dream “Cast”

Wow, less than two weeks to go until Whip Smart is out. I’m pumped but nervous as hell, what more can I say? To commemorate the countdown to Oct. 22 and as a bit of fun to ease the stress of pre-release jitters, I’d like to share my personal vision for Whip Smart’s leading couple, Tera Bodnar and Eric Yun. Maybe in the future, I’ll release a  full “dream cast”, but for now please enjoy the following eye candy. (WARNING: blatant self-indulgence and lots of gifs ahead)

Whip Smart Cover Reveal and Excerpt!

Hello, fellow book nerds!

Wow, it’s really hard to believe that the three-week countdown to the release date of Whip Smart is already here. For those of you who’ve been following me on Twitter, you may recall that this book has been in the works for a long time now, and even though it’s been a labor of love, the road leading up to this point has been full of ups and downs. There was a point when I didn’t even believe I would make it this far, due to all the self-doubt and external life problems holding me back from finishing my manuscript. But at long last, here I am, and I would just like to say a huge thank you to everyone who encouraged me every step of the way, as well as all of you who’ve been patiently waiting for me to finally finish this damn book I keep talking about already.

So, in honor of this almost-milestone, let’s kick off this countdown to Whip Smart‘s October 22nd release with a reveal of it’s sweet new cover, shall we?
