THIRDS Series Price Drop!!

Hello, all! Tried & True, the final book in the main THIRDS series will be released in a few days, and to celebrate we've dropped the price on books 1 through 9!! If you're looking to catch up on the series, or want to drag a friend into the crazy world of Dexter J. Daley and Destructive Delta, now's the perfect time to stock up on the series, plus book 2, Blood & Thunder, is FREE!!

Why is Book 2 free instead of book 1? We had Hell & High Water free just a few months ago for the release of book 9, so hopefully folks who'd wanted to pick it up did. With that in mind, we decided to go ahead and make book 2 free this time around.

THIRDS eBook Sale (including FREE Blood & Thunder) is at Dreamspinner, Amazon, B&N, Kobo, and iBooks. Sale ends November 28th. 

We're waiting for Amazon to make Blood & Thunder FREE, but you can still pick it up at no cost from Kobo, iBooks, Barnes & Noble, and Dreamspinner Press. Here are the links to the individual book pages which has a listing of links for all booksellers, plus the price drop for each. Happy Reading! Hell & High Water (THIRDS, Book 1): $0.99 Blood & Thunder (THIRDS, Book 2): FREE Rack & Ruin (THIRDS, Book 3): $1.99 Rise & Fall (THIRDS, Book 4): $1.99 Against the Grain (THIRDS, Book 5): $2.99 Catch a Tiger by the Tail (THIRDS, Book 6): $2.99 Smoke & Mirrors (THIRDS, Book 7): $3.99 Thick & Thin (THIRDS, Book 8): $3.99 Darkest Hour Before Dawn (THIRDS, Book 9): $3.99

THIRDS Ringtones

When I set out to write the THIRDS, I never imagined the impact this series would have on my life. I wanted to write something different, something fun that was jam-packed with action, humor, and romance. It was certainly a labor of love, and it’s been such an incredible experience, one made even more spectacular by my readers. Thanks to this series, I’ve met the most fantastic group of people. It never ceases to amaze me, and humble me, the kind of love and support readers have shown me and my books over the years.

During one of many chats with fellow authors, I picked their brains on ways I could offer my readers fun little extras to thank them for all they do. I love giving back to my readers! One particular chat with Rhys Ford brought about the idea of ringtones. Rhys had some awesome ringtones made up for her Cole McGinnis series, narrated by the fabulous Greg Tremblay, and she thought it would be a great idea for me to have some THIRDS ringtones made. (You can find Rhys Ford’s Dirty Ring(tone)s here: https://rhysford.com/dirty-ringtones/)

I gave the THIRDS boys life, and the very talented Mark Westfield gave them a voice. Working with Mark on the THIRDS audiobooks has been such a joy, and I’m so very grateful for everything he’s done. The THIRDS audiobooks are more than narrations, they’re performances. Like listening to a movie, little sound effects and all. For me, one of my biggest concerns at the very beginning was finding the right voice for Dex and Sloane. Not only did Mark nail them, he nailed everyone else too. I love when readers tell me that when they read a new THIRDS book, they can hear Mark’s voice in their heads narrating.

So when I decided to do the ringtones, I contacted Mark, and he was so excited. He loved the idea of giving something back to readers, and with the help of some of my fabulous THIRDS Nerds (Jo, Sandra, and Dana), Mark created a set of ringtones. Below you’ll find the links to the various files types you can download.

Thank you all so much for the incredible Journey! See what I did there? Okay, okay. Go download your ringtones.

Love in Spades Release Date April 24th!

Hello, all! I'm super excited to announce that Love in Spades, the first book in my new series Four Kings Security has an official release date of April 24th! I'm so excited to introduce these fellas to you all! Below you'll find I've answered some frequently asked questions I've been receiving, as well as the blurb and some book info for Love in Spades.

This is my first venture into self publishing, and everyone has been so wonderfully supportive! A huge thank you to everyone for all their amazing help as I take on this new adventure!

FAQ

Q: I'm a reviewer and would like an ARC for my review site. Where can I get one?

A: If you're a reviewer or blogger interested in signing-up for an ARC or the release blitz, you can do so here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScy8HwDhGVFArgZx668VVEXxIZGT6FLS6wKPco5mSVgBEwslQ/viewform This is being organized by the lovely Michelle Slagan of Vibrant Promotions.

Q: Will Love in Spades be available for pre-order? 

A: No, Love in Spades will be going directly to release.

Q: Where will I be able to purchase Love in Spades? 

A: Love in Spades will be available through Amazon and KU for the time being. If that changes at any point, I'll be sure to announce it.

Q: Will it be available in paperback?

A: Yes. Love in Spades will be available in paperback.

Q: Will there be an audio version?

A: Yes. Love in Spades goes into audiobook production next month with the fabulous Greg Tremblay. Originally I intended on having auditions, and although there are so many amazing narrators out there, I needed something very specific for one of the Kings: Lucky.

Eduardo "Lucky" Alejandro Morales is Cuban, from a little village outside Havana who came over to Florida as a teen, and grew up in Miami. Because of his character, his background, his thick accent, his way of speaking, and because his book is the third in the series, it was very important to me that Lucky's voice be as accurate. As a Cuban author who also grew up in Miami as a teen, I knew what I was looking for, and it was very important to me that Lucky's voice be just right, especially since there are several scenes in which Lucky speaks Spanish.  Considering the series takes place around Florida, there are characters from all backgrounds. As a fan of Greg's, I know he'll do a fantastic job.

Q: Will the series be available in other languages?

A: Yes! I'm very excited to announce I signed a contract with Juno Publishing for the French translation of the series, and with Triskell Edizioni for the Italian translations. As soon as I have more info on these, I'll be sure to share it with you.

Q: Do you have a Pinterest inspiration board? A: Absolutely! You can find it here: https://www.pinterest.com/charliecochet/four-kings-security-series/ If you have any questions I've not answered here, feel free to leave them in the comments below. Thank you all so much for joining the Kings!

LOVE IN SPADES

Four Kings Security: Book 1

SYNOPSIS

Ex-Special Forces soldier Anston “Ace” Sharpe is fighting a different battle these days—one involving the world of private security across the state of Florida. As part owner of Four Kings Security, Ace and his fellow Kings tackle everything from armed transport and investigations to cyber intelligence and executive protection. Cocky, fearless, and brash, Ace isn’t afraid to take risks.

After years of working alongside his father, Colton Connolly is ready to take the helm at Connolly Maritime, but his father’s retirement is put on hold when Colton begins receiving death threats. If that isn’t bad enough, his father signs a contract with Four Kings Security to provide Colton with round-the-clock protection, despite his adamant refusal. Colton’s life has been turned upside down, the last thing he needs is a shadow, especially in the form of infuriating, sexy-as-sin Ace Sharpe, who seems to be on a mission to drive Colton mad.

Sparks fly the moment Colton and Ace meet on a sultry night club dance floor. But getting involved with a client, even one as fiery and beautiful as Colton Connolly, is a line Ace is unwilling to cross. Colton might be attracted to Ace, but he’d been burned before. He might be willing to put his life in Ace’s hands, but not his heart.

As the Florida nights heat up, so does their passion, and Ace and Colton are faced with a difficult choice—take the plunge and risk it all, or play it safe and walk away?

If Ace can keep a deadly threat from robbing Colton of a future….
