Self-publishing and Me by Jodi Ellen Malpas.
'I was about to make my story available for a stranger to read. I’d designed my cover, completed every field required and uploaded my story. Could it be this easy? What if they hate it? What if they love it? What if my soul on paper was a load of rubbish? Who knew? But I’d never find out unless I clicked that self-publish button.
I’m not quite sure what happened from that point on. Total madness seems apt because that’s exactly what it has been – a non-stop rollercoaster of ups and downs. I’ve been in this world for under a year, but I feel like I’ve gained a lifetime of knowledge in that short time. Would I do anything different? Yes, I’d have read the wealth of information available on Amazon’s KDP site a hundred times instead of fifty. I would have also made myself more familiar with the on line community of readers, writers and bloggers, who are instrumental in the marketing and promotion of self-published authors. If you plan on self-publishing, find that community. It’ll open up a whole new world to you.
Every self-published author’s dream is to have a traditional publishing house invest in them – a huge organisation that has faith in your work and will put your book in the shops, help you market and promote it, and reach an even wider audience. Incredibly, I’ve got that now.
I’m so glad I clicked that self-publish button.'

Jesse Ward drowned her with his intensity and blindsided her with his passion, but he kept her away from his dark secrets and broken soul. Leaving him was the only way Ava O'Shea could survive, but she should have known that Jesse Ward is impossible to escape. Now he's back in her life, determined to remind her of the sensual pleasures they had shared, but Ava is equally determined to get at the truth beneath this man's steely exterior. That means letting herself get close to the Lord of the Manor once more. And it's exactly where Jesse wants her - within touching distance ...Includes a brand-new bonus scene from Jesse's perspective.
