Exciting Patreon Updates!

Exciting Patreon Updates!

It’s been a couple of years since AJ and I started our Patreon. We’ve had so much support since then and we’re incredibly grateful to everyone who has taken part.

This week we decided to revamp the Patreon and update our support tiers to give more back. The biggest update is the lowest tier—$2 per month—now has complete access to all the exclusive and advanced fiction and posts on the Patreon. Get bonus scenes, outtakes, WIP chapters, and more for half the price of a cup of coffee.

We’re also offering additional perks throughout the year so you never know when you’ll get a bonus. This week all Patreons at every support level got an advance copy of our new release, Loose Lips and Relationships, as well as a copy of the complete Free Men boxset.

We’ve got some exiting suff planned for the Patreon going forward, and we’d love you to be a part of our journey. Check it out—new Patreons get back access to all 100+ existing posts 🎉

New Release from AJ Rose #mmromance

New Release from AJ Rose #mmromance

I’m excited to announce a new release from AJ Rose, written with a little help from yours truly. Welcome to Flaming, Missouri.

loose lips flaming mo cover

Flaming is the perfect place for police officer Marc Warren to heal his battered heart after a broken marriage. The tourist town is an easy beat and he finds sanctuary in his beautiful cabin on the Lake of the Ozarks. So when Grant “Good Time” Taylor shows interest, Marc is in no hurry to let Flaming’s resident bad boy rock his boat.

Grant has no interest in dating locals. Tourists are plentiful and don’t want more than he’s willing to give. But a bar bet turns personal when Marc hands him a humiliating public rejection. If Grant wants to get under the mysterious officer’s skin, he’ll have to offer more than a temporary port.

The small town rumor mill gets a jumpstart as Marc and Grant realize what they’ve been missing all along—each other. But not everyone is happy for them. Someone will stop at nothing to sink the budding relationship. Can Marc and Grant overcome their fears to fight for each other, or is their happiness destined to drown?

Award winning authors AJ Rose and Kate Aaron have teamed up to welcome you to Flaming, MO, a cozy thriller series with feel-good themes, charismatic characters, and a small town with a big heart.

New Releases from Kate Aaron!

New Releases from Kate Aaron!

I haz exciting news. February 12th is the release date for the Free Men boxset, a collection of my bestselling series, plus three extra bonus scenes and the Free Men world map. It’s silly but I’m stupidly pleased with the map, and all the little details in it. It reminds me of the fantasy series I read as a kid.

The boxset is available now on Smashwords and Amazon, or look for it from tomorrow on iTunes, B&N, and all other ebook retailers.

I also have exciting news from France and Italy. Reines-Beaux, my French publisher, released The Dead Past in French, and Quixote Edizioni released The Soldier in Italian! *throws confetti*

The Patreon Dilemma

The Patreon Dilemma

There has been some controversy recently about authors signing up for Patreon. For those who don’t know, Patreon is a site where people can sign up to support creators (not just authors, but photographers and artists, musicians, models… you name it) by pledging them a fixed amount of money every month. Most Patreons start at $1 or $3, and can go all the way up to hundreds of dollars per month.

I’ll be honest, I’ve been considering it for a long time, but I hadn’t taken the plunge because getting a Patreon involves two things: 1. Talking about money, and 2. Swallowing my pride. Let me explain. Continue reading →

#WhyIWriteRomance, or Your Bitterness is Showing

I’m supposed to be working. But instead I’m infuriated because my Twitter feed is full of quotes from some SFF author who says romance is a shitty genre and *bless the little women who put so much effort into writing it* but our products are crap. I haven’t even looked who it is because honestly… another day, another Author-with-a-capital-A being condescending. I really couldn’t care less about them. Continue reading →
