Writing on the Edge: Upcoming Chat with SavvyAuthors

Are you an author? Do you self publish dark or taboo fiction, or are you considering it in the future? If so, I’d love to invite you to my chat with Savvy Authors. Digicon is an online conference for indie and self publishing featuring workshops and chats for authors. I’m hosting the following event:

Writing on the Edge: Killers, Captivity, and Dubious Consent in Dark Romance
May 30, 2014 7:30 p.m. EST

Paranormal romance has explored anti-heroes and taboo themes for decades, and we’re finally getting the same freedom in contemporary romance. Self-published authors are pushing boundaries, and readers are responding by propelling them up the sales charts.

What do you need to know if you’re considering incorporating dark themes in your work? What are the considerations in terms of reader expectations and content warnings? What do Amazon and other distributors disallow?

Skye Warren is the New York Times bestselling author of dark romantic fiction. She has been called a “true mistress of dark and twisted love stories.” (The Forbidden Bookshelf) Skye will draw on her self-publishing dark erotica and romance for the past two and a half years to arm you in publishing your own boundary-pushing books.

Please note: This chat will contain frank language of sexual and taboo subject matter.

You can see the full class listing here. I hope you’ll join me on Friday to chat!

New Release: On the Way Home

I’ve just gotten back from the RT Book Convention which completely wiped me out. However, I am so happy to pop up out of hiding to tell you my new release is available!

ON THE WAY HOME has dark suspense elements and a hot military hero. Here’s the blurb:

OnTheWayHome-SkyeWarren-500x750Clint
For eight months I’ve been deep under cover as a special operator in the Army. On the plane ride home, all I want is a hot shower and a long sleep. But a Dear John text message leaves me stranded. I need a ride and a place to stay, and the pretty stewardess is more than willing.

Della
It’s supposed to be a simple trade—the passenger in seat 34B for my sister. But the sexy soldier is more than I can handle in all the best ways. He trusts me, but I can’t save him. No one can. Sometimes trouble has a way of following you home.

On the Way Home is a dark new adult romance intended for readers over eighteen.

“Thrilling, suspenseful, sexy as hell. Skye Warren can simply do no wrong.” – Book Bellas

  

Though just as sexy as ever, I think this book is less dark than my usual, so it can appeal to a wider audience. I would hugely appreciate anything you could do to help me spread the word about this book. That includes tweeting, blogging, and telling a friend about it.

Thank you so much for reading and sharing and all of your support!
