Congratuations on your new releases!

I'm very pleased to welcome fellow Decadent Publishing author Kacey Hammell to the blog today. She's celebrating the releases of two new books. And she wanted to offer some thanks. Read on...

Thank you… when it’s rarely said …

Sometimes, authors, friends, colleagues, are so busy and multi-tasking that they forget to thank those around them.

In the publishing world it’s even more often that important folks can work tirelessly and endlessly for others and rarely hear thanks. Especially Publishers.

Of course, this is all my opinion and I don’t see what emails they receive *g*, but want to take the time to thank Decadent Publishing for releasing my 2nd and 3rd titles recently. The publishing process can be thrilling, fun and exhausting. However, when working with great individuals things can go smoothly and move quickly.  While I confess that I do have a tendency with the repetitious words, metaphors that sound right in my head but battle me on paper, thankfully it’s my editor who shows me the errors of my ways.

I had a different editor for Awakenings than I did with Tied Down, but both editors…my goodness…I cherish them both. Both ladies are professional, supportive and fun. I appreciate them so much. Mwah.

So overall, I want to thank, the owners of Decadent Publishing, the amazing cover artists, the editors, review coordinator and other authors who have all been wonderfully supportive. Even when doubts creep in, which can happen to even the bestselling authors, as I get my name out there and try to reach readers, I’ve gotten some great advice and hand-holding from all the aforementioned people. I’m definitely blessed.

And thanks to Laura Kaye, for hosting me today!

In the Arms of the Law, Book 2
Romantic Suspense/Contemporary Erotic Romance
Available at Decadent Publishing
With her old flame back in her life, and on the trail of a killer, Detective Alicia Knowles is forced to face the past as she tries to make decisions about her future…

Detective Alicia Knowles once believed there was good in everyone. Not anymore. After a harrowing experience, her life had changed and she was a very different woman. Now more dangerous, she moves through the darkness of her once sunny world, unsure what to do with her pent up feelings of fear and anger.

Even her new boss, Cole Douglass, makes her feel out of control. One night, years ago, he made her feel things she'd never felt with any other man. This time it can only be business between them.

With her latest case, however, temperatures flare.

Their passion is rekindled as the search is on for a missing child and a murderer on the run. Can Alicia protect her heart from the most dangerous power of all…love?

An “Edge” short story
Connected to In the Arms of the Law Series
Contemporary Erotic Romance/Light BDSM
Available at Decadent Publishing

The time has come for Brady Jacobs to grab hold of the woman he loves and their future. But his lady, Isabella Knowles, is skittish. She’ll bolt at the mention of a future with him. He needs to handle her with precise planning, tools to seduce and never give her a moment to flee.

Brady will tie her down, pleasure her, push her farther than she’s ever experienced…then ask her to marry him. But no amount of planning can ensure Bella’s answer won’t include the business end of her Glock.

Hi Tina, Thanks for coming by.

I would love to do all 9 books that I originally planned but I considering doing some short reads (like Tied Down/Wild Thunder) in the midst too, keep things light with the full-length ones too :D

I always like to make sure those supporters around me get the thanks and appreciation they deserve. And only takes a moment to say it :D

Good luck with the giveaway!

Thanks for a great post, Kacey. Unfortunately, I remember the editors most when I am reading a story that could really have used a good editor working with the author. Glad to see you have such a good team at Decadent, your readers can't help but to benefit!

CONGRATS on your new releases Kacey! Does your In the Arms of the Law Series need to be read in order?

Thank you Everyone for stopping by and the kind words. I am very blessed.

Yadkny -- it is best to read the stories in order yes, but isnt essential. There's enough backstory in each for it to be easily followed. I would suggest reading Illusions before Tied Down, however, so you get a feel for why Brady goes to such lengths with Bella. She can be ... stubborn *g*

Thanks again for your support!
