My (Cassandra Dean) very first book in PRINT EVA!!!!
Hello and welcome back to the party! Today’s guest is Cassandra Dean with an exciting announcement of her own. Please help her feel welcome!
I’m so happy to be here, and so happy to tell you all that my second ebook, TEACH ME, is now available in print Like, a physical book I can hold in my hands! THIS IS SO FRICKING AWESOME!!!!
I guess you’ve probably noticed that I’m a tad excited.
I’ve always wanted to be a writer, from the first time I learned to write. I was so thrilled when my very first book, ENSLAVED, was published in ebook. I was published! Like, ohmygodsuperwowhowamazeballs! Then, my second book, TEACH ME, was accepted and published in ebook. My golly, so excitement! My third, ROUGH DIAMOND, will be out in ebook in September. I am just delirious, and so very thrilled to be doing something I love with my whole heart. This whole caper has been a dream come true, and I’m so very privileged to share it with all you peeps.
However, this is a different kettle of fish. A print book! PRINT! I get to hold a professionally bound copy of TEACH ME in my hands, a book I wrote. That’s just the kind of sauce that is awesome.
TEACH ME came to me while I was on a bus tour of Scotland. I was staring at the back of heads on the bus when suddenly a scene popped into my head. A cold, impassive man watches a bright, effusive woman from across a ballroom, and though no emotion creases his features, amusement and love twine within him. She catches him looking at her and, with a saucy smile, beckons him to her. He goes, knowing that whenever she calls, he’ll follow.
Well, this scene just wouldn’t let me go, and of course I had no pen or paper to write it all down. What a nitwit. So, at our stop for the night, I tore the hotel room apart* searching for a complimentary pad and pen and, once found, proceeded to detail what would eventually become TEACH ME. I spent the rest of my holiday jotting bits and pieces down in a notebook I purchased, reveling in this story that had taken hold of me.
Right now, I’d like to extend a hearty, big, massive thank you to the back of heads on a bus in Scotland. If I’d found you interesting, I wouldn’t now be holding a copy of my very first PRINT book in my hands!
*May be exaggerating for comic effect. Apparently, I do this all the time ;p
Cassandra is offering a giveaway as well: “One lucky commenter will win a PRINT copy of TEACH ME, a signed TEACH ME postcard, a TEACH ME magnet and a TEACH ME keyring! Unfortunately, contest is only open to those with a US or UK postal address.”
You can find more from Cassandra:
Ever curious, Elizabeth, Viscountess Rocksley, has turned her curiosity to erotic pleasure. Three years a widow, she boldly employs the madam of a brothel for guidance but never had she expected her education to be conducted by a coldly handsome peer of the realm.
To the Earl of Malvern, the erotic tutelage of a skittish widow is little more than sport, however the woman he teaches is far from the mouse he expects. With her sly humor and insistent joy, Elizabeth obliterates all his expectations and he, unwillingly fascinated, can’t prevent his fall.
Each more intrigued than they are willing to admit, Elizabeth and Malvern embark upon a tutelage that will challenge them, change them, come to mean everything to them…until a heartbreaking betrayal threatens to tear them apart forever.
