** <3 THE BODY PAINTER INFO <3 **
Thank you SO much, everyone, while I knuckled down and immersed myself in the world of Olin and Gil in THE BODY PAINTER. I’m getting close to having dates to announce, and there will a newsletter and blog post going up tomorrow with more news, but for now…here’s the gist of it.
STANDALONE OR SERIES?
I’ve been a bit cagey on this question as I honestly didn’t know. I was waiting for the characters to tell me how long they’d need, if their story justified more than one book, and figure out the exact plot. The good news is I know everything and I can announce THE BODY PAINTER is BOOK ONE in the MASTER OF TRICKERY DUET. THE LIVING CANVAS is the final and second book.
THE BODY PAINTER (Book One of the Master of Trickery Duet)THE LIVING CANVAS (Book Two of the Master of Trickery Duet)
They are both coming in 2019. I’ll explain more below.
I’ve spent the morning uploading pre-orders to both these books. Those links will start appearing on Google Play, iBooks, Nook, & Kobo. Amazon will be a live release on the day. The placement holder dates on THE BODY PAINTER is 1st August 2019 and THE LIVING CANVAS 1st November 2019.
THE BOOKS WILL RELEASE SOONER THAN THAT AND YOU HAVE A SAY HOW SOON.
What do I mean by this? Well, you have a choice on how soon you want THE BODY PAINTER to come out. That book is almost done. If I didn’t have to move house in a week and then spend a couple of weeks sorting and moving in, I could technically release end of May. HOWEVER, life has decided to get messy so that’s not going to happen. The good news is though, once I’ve moved, I could release fairly soon…say June. Now, that’s great and I’d LOVE to do that. BUT…The Living Canvas isn’t written and it would be 3 months between the first book and the second.
I can save THE BODY PAINTER and release when THE LIVING CANVAS is ready to go and have both release within a few weeks of each other.
It’s YOUR decision. I’ll be making up a poll tomorrow that you can click on and let me know if you’d prefer a book out in a few weeks with three months wait till the next one, or wait for both and only have a few weeks in-between. What would you prefer? I honestly want to know.

WHAT’S THIS BOOK ABOUT?
It’s hard to describe. All I can say is it’s grey, twisty, suspenseful, and rather erotic. Gil is a tortured, protective, semi-aggressive alpha that is struggling with something that casts a shadow over everything. It’s not a book about sex and painting. There is painting and there is sex…but…it’s a lot more complicated than that 🙂
After this I’ll be diving into the dark world of THE GODDESS ISLES. It’s a series like the INDEBTED SERIES and I aim to have a couple of in 2019 so I’ll be busy, busy.
Right, I think that’s it for now.
Watch out for my post tomorrow with pre-order links, poll questions, and more newsie stuff.
Thanks so much!
