Running a smidge late...

So I got the finished draft of The Billionaire's Touch, the second part of the His Submissive series, to the editor a little the release date has been pushed back a little. I'd like to say it will be back and the final version approved and up by tomorrow or Sunday, but I don't want to further disappoint, so I'll refrain from doing that.

I'm sorry :( :( is on the way and hopefully it'll be worth the wait. It's full of brooding-ness, steaminess, private jet-ness, and even a trip to Venice! I had so much fun researching and stuff and I can't wait until it comes back from the editor so I can share it!

I can, however, share a special treat. Here's the cover for The Billionaire's Touch:

What do y'all think? I'm kinda loving the red. :)

I also have some more news as far as the His Submissive series is concerned...I've decided that there will be 4 parts and you guys get to hear the next two titles first!
Part 1: The Billionaire's Contract
Part 2: The Billionaire's Touch
Part 3: The Billionaire's Passion
Part 4: The Billionaire's Heart

While saying goodbye to Leila and Jacob is gonna suck hardcore, I like the idea of having a set narrative and  I think it'll make for a better read. I don't want to drag my readers on with craziness like The Billionaire's Whips, Part 9. Not trying to milk as much money as possible from my fans and I'm not trying to cliffhanger you to death either. ;)

Stay tuned to the blog for a possible sneak peek of the description and the release announcement for part 2!

Updates and Apologies

So I wanted to clear up some things and also give you guys an update.

Apparently when I published the first book of the His Submissive Series, titled The Billionaire's Contract, there was already a book called The Billionaire's Contract. It is totally my bad and from a few comments here and an email or two, super confusing for those that want more of Leila and Jacob's story.

I apologize for any confusion...I don't think a title change will happen unless you guys feel strongly about it.  There are a few key differences/things to look for:

1. My books are part of the His Submissive Series. You will always see that as part of the title, and if you don't, it's not part of Leila and Jacob's story.

2. My books will have Ava Claire as the author. I'm the only author for the series so if you don't see my name, it's not part of the His Submissive Series.

3. Be sure the product description mentions Leila and Jacob.

Again, super sorry if this has been frustrating for anyone. If I get any more complaints, I might throw up a poll on the blog and if enough people tell me it was a deterrent/really annoying, I'll consider changing the title. Even though I share the book title with another series, I believe The Billionaire's Contract fits the first book because it's when Jacob offers Leila an opportunity to join his glitzy glam life as his submissive...if she signs on the dotted line.

Hopefully a lot of the confusion will be cleared up when book 2/part 2 comes's going to be titled The Billionaire's Touch, and I actually researched this and no one has this title, so yay! :)

Speaking of book 2, I'm sorry it's taken a little time to get the next part out...real life stuff has been a little hectic. But there's good news! The book should be live by August 31 (give or take a day or two depending on how quickly online retailers pass it through, any hangups on covers etc). I'm really excited about the next chapter in Leila and Jacob's story and can't wait to share it with you guys.

Thanks for reading and as always, if you have any problems/concerns/gripes, feel free to comment or shoot me an email (avaclairewrites[at]gmail[dot]com)!
