New Book Page

Managing various online identities can be confusing and time-consuming. I had my previous blog, Fermented Fur, an author page, personal and author pages on Facebook, and a page for my editing services. I eventually discontinued my editing services page, because my work for Limitless Publishing takes most of my time, and I have plenty of long-time indie authors to keep me busy.

My author page has been sitting around not doing much of anything for a long time. While I love writing and care deeply about my books, it’s never been my top priority, and I don’t have anything new in the works.

My author website at loriwhitwam.com was hosted on a friend’s server. He never charged me for it, and helped me set everything up, because he had a lot of accounts on there that more than paid the operating expenses. But as he’s gotten out of the business, I was soon the only one left, so I needed to find a new home for my domain.

I’m not a skilled tech person. So I decided the best thing to do was to redirect my domain to point at a page here on WordPress, so now everything is in one place. Amazingly, I didn’t screw it up too badly.

So, now you can see all the information on my books, including links to them on Amazon, right HERE on Lori’s Books on this blog. Please stop by, take a look, and let me know what you think. Ellen and Quinn and Ty and Seth and Abby would love to meet you.

Tuesday Means New Books!

WEBSITE-LOGO-31

If it’s Tuesday, that means Limitless Publishing has some new books for you to enjoy, and today we have two fantastic choices–a New Adult (college-age) romance, third in the Scandalous series by R. Linda, and the Carnival of Fear horror anthology, featuring thirteen all-new, never-before-released stories by a great team of authors.

First up, we have Harper and the One-Night Stand, by R. Linda, book #3 in the Scandalous series. I have a special fondness for this one–and the author–as I am the editor for this bestselling series.

Harper2

A few too many cocktails in paradise, and I woke up in someone else’s bed. My ex-boyfriend’s cousin’s bed, to be exact.

Huge mistake.

Nate and I agreed it wouldn’t happen again. We didn’t want to hurt Brody. Only it did happen, repeatedly, until I finally found the courage to walk away.

But I couldn’t ignore the temptation, and I soon found myself back in his bed—or on his floor—stealing secret kisses and forbidden touches, sneaking around behind everyone’s backs.

I tried so hard to resist Nate’s charms, but my resolve crumbled. How could I not be swept off my feet by water towers in the rain and deep confessions on the beach?

The last thing we want is to hurt anyone, but it is out of our control. And there isn’t a thing I can do except give him my heart and hope he keeps it safe…regardless of the consequences.

But that’s not all.

Ready for a mind-bending experience? Wonderful! Our contortionist won’t just showcase her extreme flexibility, she’ll also shock you with her insatiable appetite. Want to know her secret?

HOT New Releases

It’s another busy Tuesday for us at Limitless Publishing, and our imprint, Crave Publishing, and the theme for this week seems to be bad boys. Be it mafia or motorcycle clubs, there’s plenty of dark, steamy romance to satisfy even the choosiest reader.

Take a look at what we have for you, and be sure to stop by the Limitless Publishing and Crave Publishing Facebook pages for this week’s giveaways!

First up, Demons by J.L. Drake, book 2 in the sizzling Devil’s Reach Motorcycle Club series. I’ve been Jodi’s editor for all her books, and must admit I’m a bit partial!

29060722_1629519097098033_700937027953212184_o

Trigger…

I thought the light would bring redemption.

Salvation.

But it only brought the Devil to my doorstep.

My demons are breaking through, and the reaper is moving closer.

My weakness has been exposed, and there’s only one person who can calm this hell…

Tess…

I broke a promise to myself, and now I’m paying for it.

I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be a part of this hell.

But I don’t have a choice…

The reaper is riding bitch on our backs.

The Preacher’s Daughter, first in the new Rough Riders MC series by Shelly Morgan

unnamed

Angelica…

I’ve always been the preacher’s daughter, their perfect little angel. 

But I won’t be their angel anymore. It’s time for me to live my own life.

Little did I know I was stepping straight out of my safe dream…into a nightmare.

The only one who can save me now is a man my daddy calls a devil—a criminal with a leather jacket and tattoos. 

But he makes my heart beat…makes me feel alive.

No matter how strong he is, though, hell will claim me again.

Torq…

She’s too good to be true—too good for a man like me. 

But I knew the first time I saw her, I needed to claim her and make her my own.

There are men evil enough to hurt the innocent, defile the sacred, like my Angel. 

Those men must die.

I’ve already saved her once. I’ll gladly go to hell and back to do it again.

How about an anthology featuring twelve all-new stories by an amazing cast of authors…for only 99 cents? Craving: Loyalty includes stories about hot mafia men and women, and other heroes and heroines on the darker side of romance.

loyalty

Loyalty.

Noun.  ‘A strong feeling of support or allegiance.’

For some, loyalty can be bought. For others, it’s earned. But the thing about loyalty—it can change in an instant. All it takes is one act, one decision, and loyalty shifts to betrayal in the blink of an eye…a sin which cannot go unpunished.

Not in this world.

But sometimes things happen beyond our control, forcing our allegiances to change. Like the mob enforcer who wants nothing more than to seduce the assassin hired to kill him. Or the FBI agent who falls for the woman whose past holds ties with the mafia.

Yet, no matter the reason or motive, the consequences of betrayal are always deadly.

Because in this world everyone is…
