Magic Means Books 4 and 5 Will Be Published In One Volume

Magic-Means-Book-4-Cover-final-SMALLThat’s right, with Magic Means books 1-3 on Kindle Unlimited, I’ve decided to release books 4 and 5 together. They will sadly not be available through Kindle Unlimited, but will be on Amazon and every other major platform such as Apple Books (formerly iBooks), Kobo, Barnes & Noble Nook, and Smashwords among others.

I have heard you, and I’m happy to announce that, as of January 3, 2020, these and the rest of my books won’t be exclusive to any one platform, but will be available broadly.

Magic Means Books 4 and 5 make up one huge 128,000 word story which could not be split into two books as planned. It’s a slice of life style story that features the rising power of several characters, more of Mack’s story (including his faeries), and an explosive ending that launches the next three books in the series. It’s a trip into this world that is thorough, intimate and emotional and I’m eager to put it in front of you.

This series doesn’t have many readers yet, I suspect it’s sitting on hundreds if not thousands of readers as a freebie many people downloaded but haven’t read yet, but I know more people are coming. The reviews are great so far, so I know more people will be joining the readership and me on this mystic, sexual trip.

The copy editor for the series suggested the cover I’m using for Books 4 and 5, and he encourages you to take a close look. There’s a lot going on, so keep checking back, or subscribe to the site so you don’t miss a thing.

Founder: Magic Means Book 1 Is Free!

Founder-GenericSo is Seeker: Magic Means Book 2, sort of. Let me explain briefly.

First, I’d like to thank the readers who stepped up and reported that Founder needed a price match (It was free everywhere OTHER than Amazon at the time, see the previous blog post), because I’m sure that helped. I’d like to thank Amazon as well, because they could have simply denied my request and discarded the reports you submitted. Thanks for setting my book free, Amazon, you’re pretty cool after all.

This week nearly two thousand people downloaded Magic Means Book 1, and thanks to Amazon setting Magic Means Book 2 free in some regions, it’s been downloaded over three hundred times.

Let’s not forget other platforms, where Magic Means Book 1 and 2 have been downloaded nearly a thousand times, and it’s slowly inching its way up the Romance charts. Barnes & Noble and iBooks are seeing some downloads too, but Smashwords is easily in second place behind Amazon. Thanks to all the platforms that offer Free as an option, it’s the best way to get my new stuff in front of people risk-free so they can see what I do.

I’m still working on getting Amazon to make the second book: Seeker: Magic Means Book 2 free, and they reassure they’re looking into it for me, so here’s hoping. In the meantime, you can download it for free from any other quality EBook retailer, especially Smashwords who offers a basic Kindle version.

I hope you enjoy these books, and please review my work once you’ve finished reading it. Future readers will thank you for giving them even a one line comment, because many decisions to download are based on those and the number of stars you leave behind. Thank you again!

Now, I’m going to get back to work on Gathering: Magic Means Book 3.

OXXO,
Damon

Seeker: Magic Means Book 2 Update

Magic-Means-Book-2-Cover-1Before I give you this little update, I’d like to say thanks to all the people who downloaded this book for free so far. I hope to start hearing from you through reviews, tweets, comments or telegrams. I’d just like to know if you’re enjoying it so far, and to thank you again when you turn up with your thoughts and opinions.

So, if you’ve finished Book 1 of Magic Means, Founder, you’re probably wondering; “Hey, Damon, when do I get the next one?”

I have some good news! I just finished a pass on the whole thing, and my beta readers are getting the manuscript tomorrow! That means I’m on track to get this out there (on Smashwords for free and Amazon for 0.99 because they’re being dicks, in my opinion), and everywhere else sometime next week or earlier!

I am so exited to get Seeker out there because the action really picks up. The first book feels more like a soft introduction compared to the second, which introduces a couple important new characters, gets into the history of Old Town and the area around it, and there is definitely some heavy erotic content in that. I think there’s some lovely lighter, more sentimental stuff in there too, because our characters aren’t just two dimensional fuck-puppets, but serious fictional people with feelings.

This is one of those books, according to test readers and myself, that doesn’t need the erotic content to be good, which is my goal in writing this series. It’s an ongoing drama that is good without the spicy stuff, but even more fun when you add it in. In Book 2: Seeker, I especially start hitting that mark and I love it.

I really can’t wait, but I have to. Those beta readers have got to get their hands on it, tell me where I messed up, and give it the all clear before it hits the street.

The third book in the series is already partially written, and I’m already having fun with it, so the series is looking good.

What did you think of the first one?

OXXO,
Damon

Oh, and just in case you don’t have that first book yet, here are the links: Barnes & Noble, iBooks (by Apple), Smashwords, Kobo, Amazon (Not free yet, but I’m working on it).

Wicked Space: Dissent Part 1

Wicked-Space-GenericThe first of the full-length novels that I’m publishing this year is out! Wicked Space is a sexy space opera trilogy, and the first two books are already finished. The first is out, the second will arrive on June 11. Here’s the synopsis:

It is the distant future, and humans are almost extinct. Most people are infertile. Regen, a massive corporation is the leader in repopulation technology and they make everyone pay for it. The wealthy breed first and with the best. Little do they know, two of their own breeding stock are being groomed to join a rebellion that promises to return the power to procreate back to the common people. It’s a breeding war unlike the galaxy has ever seen, and the fate of humanity hangs in the balance.

Wicked Space is a sexy science fiction space opera series that delivers steamy entertainment, drama and action thanks to characters like Krista, a once average woman from the 21st century whose memories are used in the growing of a charming companion who must breed for the Regen Corporation hundreds of years later. Will she stay with the company until her contract is over? It’s unlikely! Krista remembers what it’s like to be free, so she waits for her moment to turn on her masters.

These books were originally published under my previous pen name; Dariya Saint. I’ll be writing about my experience under that name soon. These books were fun to write, so I hope you enjoy them!

Exclusively on Amazon Kindle Unlimited this summer.

The Magic Library Part 2

The second part of the Magic Library, set in the world of the Magic Means series, is up! These are rough drafts where I play with a few ideas between characters in the book for fun. So far these chapters aren’t in the book, which is 17 chapters so far after editing, but who knows? If they’re well liked, I might slip them in.

Right now they’re a bit of indulgence and filthy writing practice. Filthy, filthy writing practice. I like the word ‘filthy’ today. Here’s the link! https://www.literotica.com/s/the-magic-library-pt-02-inez

Oh, and if you’re on a work computer, do NOT go to that link. I can’t believe I have to say that. 😛
