Project Indie Author – Dominique Minuit


Welcome to a new blog segment I want to run! Indie authors do not get the proper representation that they deserve, I think. People are putting forth so much effort, so much time, and so much of themselves to get their books out there. The market is changing, and self-publishing is on the rise. I’d love to take the time to read and review all self-pub authors who want to get their name out there!

My first selection is Dominique Minuit! This is 18+ NSFW work, so reader beware! 

The first short story in a series that follows an adventurous young woman named, Seraph. Follow her sexual escapades at the private club Le Château Rosé, where she experiences the broadest definitions of carnal pleasures. Whips, ropes, and exhibitionism all take place within her most recent adventure.

Whip: Seraph's tales from the Nightingale by [Minuit, Dominique]Whip: Seraph’s tales from the Nightingale  is our short story in question. Measuring up to around 3,000 words, this is a quick and dirty read! As a debut story from the author, it leaves us with both room to grow and the desire to read more!

A plus is the very (in my opinion) appealing cover and an accurate representation of the target audience. This short story is a real gem if you like a fast-and-filthy read.

The best part about this short is the fact that it is one in the beginning of a series! Growing attached to the main character, Seraph, isn’t going to leave you wanting more! Hop on the hype train now, and you won’t have to miss the next installment when it’s released later this month!

At .99, the story is a steal. Make sure to act fast! On October 16th — for one day only – the story will be FREE to read! Make sure if you do to leave a star-rating and a review ❤ Nothing helps authors more than your feedback!

That does it for this particular session of #ProjectIndieAuthor! If you are interested in having your work reviewed, leave a comment and let me know!

Even if you aren’t, share this blog and this author around! Let’s get the word out and start boosting each other up!

The Mysteriously Missing Blogger

Goodness, I have been gone for a bit. What was my absence over Christmas turned into my absence over being sick after Christmas. For that I apologize, but I am back now and ready to once more begin giving you regular blog updates!

As far as what I’ve been doing… yes, I’ve been sick. I also managed to get a hold of an adorable new baby…. and by baby, I mean baby rat. And by adorable, I mean super adorable.

DRAVENHis name is Draven, and he’s my writing buddy. We all need a mascot. Mine just so happens to be fuzzy and love giving me little nibbles when I don’t give him enough snacks!

Anyway, as to what you can be expecting over the next few days – I am currently in the process of finishing up a novel by an indie author John Needham. I will be doing a book review on that soon, and then scrambling to get caught up on the other book reviews that I need to complete. I’m going to try to get back to that – I think my target goal on those is to review a book each week, unless it’s something massively long that needs two weeks.

Other than that, I have done a few revisions on my NaNo Novel from 2013, as well as some more writing on my novel from 2014. I wonder, would you guys like to see little excerpts from those? Let me know!

So, I will be posting blogs about writing, about reading, about all of the things. I have certainly missed the input and feedback, as well as the community here, and I’m glad to be back!

PS: Bully me into making another vlog!

Until next time, keep reading and writing!
