Normally on a Monday I spend a lot of time reloading my kindle sales page to see how our new volume is going but today I am at a bit of a loss. It is the first time in 7 weeks now that I haven't had a new volume go up. Instead, I am re reading everything that Angelien and I have written over the past weeks to make sure we have her time line right as well as checking for spelling and grammar that may have slipped past the first time. On top of that both Angelien and I are working on some extra content for the book; we were only going to add an extra chapter called 'Vincent' to explain why Angelien is so sexually open but found that that was a much bigger chapter than we anticipated so after we finish editing it may be an extra 3 chapters there. We also felt that we should talk about what happened in her life between the brothel and becoming an escort so we are furiously writing a couple of final chapters that talk about a couple of boyfriends she had in that time. This way we will start Confidante: The Escort with a short recap and then her interview process and first client.

Our focus right now is finalising Confidante: The Brothel to release on 22 October, the last bit of extra writing should be finished this week and then it's just edit, edit, edit while we count down the days!

Anyone interested in reading a prelaunch copy and helping us with reviews on Amazon & Goodreads can contact us with your preferred ebook format to register your interest.

Happy 1st of the month! The countdown is on!!


 
I can't believe how close we are to the launch of Confidante: The Brothel in it's full book form! I am starting to feel really excited and can't wait to get my hand on the printed book and put it on my shelf!

I am so grateful to all of the people who have been reading along with us on Kindle as we have been writing this. It's really helped to spur us on!

For anyone who hasn't read any of our weekly episodes yet we have put Volumes 1-4 together on Amazon and they will be available for free from 27th Sept - 28th Sept 2012 central US time. (So it will become free by midnight tonight for any of our Aussie readers) 

I have to get back to it, I have been reading and writing so much lately that I think my eyes are about to give up - best work before they pack it in entirely! 

Have a great day!

We now have all of our covers for the print editions of the Confidante Trilogy, I think we will used these on the kindle versions from now on as well.  Here is a sneak look at them all!

We are actually planning on applying to Kindle serials to distribute Confidante The Escort and Confidante: The Madame so I will keep you updated on how successful we are with that. We are spending most of this week getting our proposal together so the pressure is on a little.

Volume 7 of Confidante: The Brothel - Quitting time -  is now listed and available exclusive to Amazon and Volume 6 Cordial & Secretaries will be on free promotion for 24th and 25th September Central US time, so get your copy while you can!

The countdown is on for the release of Confidante: The Brothel in full print and ebook form. We are scheduled for release on 22nd oct 2012 so we are in the final stages now!  


 
Angelien and I have been pouring over all of her stories trying to get the right combination to finish Confidante:The Brothel and have come up with what we think is a great conclusion to the chapter of her life.  Our big question was do we end the series with her leaving the brothel or do we continue a little with her life. You see she spent some time after the brothel still agreeing to do the occaisional call out. Eventually we decided to end this series with her finally telling Rebecca 'no more'.

We put the finishing touches on Volume 7 today, it is called 'Quitting Time'. In this one Angelien says goodbye to working full time at the brothel and starts to follow her life as it returns to 'normalcy'
 
that I find difficult when writing is putting in all of the 'filler' stuff when you are trying to get to the exciting part. I try to look at writing like I am watching a movie or even discussing real life and figure out what sequence of events could logically lead up to each 'event' within my story. I just find that I know what it is I want to happen and how they get there but my fingers just won't move fast enough to progress the story - I type about 60 words/minute and I am not super accurate so I do find it all a little frustrating at times. Yesterday I had so much that I wanted to write but ran out of time in between mummy duties so had to just jot down a quick ramble in point form on what was in my head. I'm glad I got it down but now I have to go back and fill in between those dot points.

Writing Confidant: The Brothel has been a great learning curve and while I am working on that I am also working on my yet to be named drama/romance novel, I am hoping to have it ready by the end of November but I might be pushing it a little.

I am seriously stuck on a name for that one though. What would you call a book about love lost and found again but not being sure if you could keep it? I really am at a loss for a catchy title.

Anyway, this is me & my ramblings, signing off

Confidante: The Brothel will be released in paperback on 22 October 2012, it contains all of the volumes we have and will put on Kindle (there will be 10 all up) as well as a bonus chapter on Angelien's eye opening relationship with a man called Vincent. To celebrate the occaision we are giving away the very first printed copy to one lucky person on Good Reads! Follow this link to enter---> http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/16028397-confidante

In other news, someone kindly decided to give my book one star on good reads before it is even published, as disappointing as one star is I thought it was pretty cool that a time traveller went into the future, read my book, and then came back to the present to put their rating on it, I am pretty impressed! lol Seriously though you can't please everyone, even before your book comes out :)

Til next time!

I have been flat out getting ready for the launch of our complete book Confidante: The Brothel lately. We are adding an extra chapter to the 10 volumes that we have already put up on Amazon Kindle that will cover Angelien's eye opening relationship with a man named Vincent.

I have also been setting up all of our social media and on top of that I have listed a giveaway on Goodreads.com for one lucky person to get the very first printed copy of Confidante: The Brothel.

So we only have 4 more volumes to go before the paperback comes out on 22nd October 2012.

Very exciting stuff!  

 
A big thankyou to everyone who has been following Angelien's story as we write it, it has been a lot of fun so far! We are now on our home stretch. We are writing 10 volumes of Confidante the Brothel before we close the door on that chapter of Angelien's life and move on to Confidante the Escort. The great news is that we will compile all 10 volumes into one book that will be available in print as well as ebook format and that will have a bonus chapter that covers the boyfriend that brought Angelien out of her sexual shell - he was something else! let me tell you!

Volume 6 will be up on Kindle this monday and we are calling this volume 'Cordial & Secretaries' it will cover the first job Angelien ever had as well as the secretary fantasy that so many men love.

I am putting the finishing touches on the volume today, editing it tomorrow with Angelien and then putting it up on Amazon. 

I have also joined the world of facebook so feel free follow along with me there as well. There is a little link up the top of this page that will take you to my twitter or facebook pages.

I got a review on my short story yesterday which was very exciting, you see the number of downloads ticking away and start to worry about whether people are liking your work or not, so it was wonderful to recieve a 4 star review and a nice little comment!

Well, I have to go now. I'm a bit light headed after a bit too much wine last night so off to get a bit glass of water, some panadol and back to work!

 
Hubby and I are very excited tonight as we are going out for our 10 year anniversary! I am pretty jazzed about going out actually because it has been a while, so I am taking a well deserved night off writing to get dressed up and act all grown up. Angelien is coming over to baby sit for me, I couldn't ask for a better friend in that one!

Anyway, just wanted to say a quick hi! Also to add that if you visit me on kindle -  http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=ntt_athr_dp_sr_1?_encoding=UTF8&field-author=Lilliana%20Anderson&search-alias=digital-text you will find that Vol 5 has just gone on promotion until the 15th so grab your copy now!

Thanks to all of those who have been purchasing or borrowing my volumes from the kindle store! I really appreciate you wanting to follow along with us!

Love to all! Lilli XXX
