Back...with News!

Hey! So I've been kinda incognito since the release of The Billionaire's Passion. Had a bit of a family emergency so I had to fly back to the East coast.

Things I learned during my trip:
-I need to quit Delta. There's always some sort of drama like me giving them a brand new piece of luggage and me getting it back like someone literally chewed it up and spit it out, delays until kingdom come, and just general tomfoolery.
Some mechanical malfunction that they strangely waited until my plane was about to take off to address cost me a whole day with my family. Long story short, Delta is like that ex-bf that you keep texting even though you know they're no good, meeting up to 'talk' but your clothes always end up off, and then you hate yourself in the AM.
On the bright side, I did snap a picture of this awesome 50SOG t-shirt:

-It's impossible to be productive around my family. Probably because I have the cutest niece in the WORLD.
-I have the best fans ever.
I know I've said the fans bit over and over, but it's because you guys keep finding awesome ways of making my day. From sending me emails, tweets/DMs, to talking to your friends about my books. I even had a follower who told me she was going to try and get her book club to read my serial! Seriously...straight up amazing.

Which brings me to my news...

I'm going to try to have a big awesome-palooza the week of the release of the final part of the His Submissive series, The Billionaire's Heart. It will last from November 5-9, culminating in the release of part 4! I'm still trying to nail down the details and prizes, but I'm planning on giving away a $50 amazon gift card, a naughty gift card, and even an e-copy of Part 4!

So stay tuned for that.

In other news, I wanted to let yall know what my tentative schedule before/after the conclusion of this series is:

--Finishing touches on Part 4 (The Billionaire's Heart)
--Putting together release week from November 5-9
--Releasing Part 4 November 9
--Releasing new D/s novella in progress in late November.

I'm really reallyyy excited about the new series. I don't want to give away too much just yet, but it's going to be more in the 'new adult' arena, featuring a college student and her dominant professor. Writing it has been an interesting experience, especially pulling from crushes I've had on a teacher or two. :)

Anyway, that's it for now...stay tuned for more updates about the release event and other juicy tidbits!

Research and Billionaire's Passion Description

I've been crazy busy the last couple of weeks. Here's a recap of what's been going on in Ava's world:

I've been finishing up The Billionaire's Passion!

I am so so so excited about release day tomorrow! The Billionaire's Passion (Part 3) is by FAR the sexiest book of the series IMO and writing it definitely had me blushing and glad that bystanders at Starbucks couldn't read my mind (or my computer screen). I wanted to go ahead and share the description of part 3 with you guys first because you're awesome sauce:

Venice, a closet full of designer clothing, and a handsome billionaire in her bed: Leila Montgomery can hardly believe her life isn't a dream. But being attached to Jacob Whitmore doesn't come without its risks--like making powerful enemies intent on ensuring Jacob and Leila's arrangement is a short lived one.

Leila must decide if Jacob's passion and their undeniable attraction is worth it when tested outside the bedroom...and if she's ready to truly submit to his dark desires.

I got goosebumps just typing it! :) I will of course update the blog tomorrow with buy links as they become available. The last minute touches are being put on the cover, so that'll have to be a surprise.

I've been researching!

While I can't quite pick up and jet to Venice for hands on stuff, I do spend a huge chunk of time researching locales and stuff to try to help transport my readers to Jacob and Leila's world.

But for the Billionaire's Passion, I got to do something even cooler than looking at pretty pictures of the Italian countryside. I found what I have affectionately coined 'The BDSM Bed'.

It's like thousands of dollars, but it's so naughty and impressive, right? When I saw it, I was like that is THE bed. The perfect bed for Jacob's playroom. :)

I've been catching up on my shows!

This is my fave time of the year when all my shows come back from excruciatingly long hiatus'.

Outlaws. Bikes. Maggie Siff. Sons of Anarchy def isn't for the faint of heart and I love every second of it. (Well except for the part where Clay is still alive and other people bit it, but that's a talk for another day...)

Loved Mindy Kaling in The Office and when I saw she was getting her on show, I knew it would be awesome sauce. And then I watched it and to say I'm hooked is a bit of an understatement.

Lifestyles of the rich and the famous. I love the soap opera-ness of Revenge and I'm on the edge of my seat every episode.

And the list kinda goes on, because I have a TV addiction. It's pretty serious.

Anyway, that's what I've been up to. Hope you guys have been misbehavin'! Stay tuned for more updates and such about The Billionaire's Passion!
