Saddled is the story of Michael, a guy who’s ready to quit stripping for a living and settle down in a career he’s been training for for years. When he starts to his new day job, he meets Sandra, the Sales Manager. Thus begins an office romance … or does it?
Add a gaggle of humorless co-workers, a no-dating policy at the office, and the fact that Sandra assumes Michael is gay when she sees him disrobing for a pub full of men, and you’ve got a novel that one reviewer describes as “…a huge barrel of laughs!” (Link goes to the full review on Amazon.)

It’s been an exciting week for a couple of reasons. One, my book, The Magician’s Curse, scored a spot on Kobo’s free page. Only six books are chosen per week in each featured category, so the ebooks have been flying off the virtual shelves!
Would you rather read the paperback for free? You can! Just request it from your local library. It’s available for them to buy.
But that’s not all! I have some more exciting news!
I’ve set up Book 3 of The Great Dagmaru series, The Magician’s Soul, for preorder. The book has a placeholder cover for the moment. Click here to have a peek.
Pretty ugly, eh?
But there’s a method to that particular madness. I’m having a contest next week that will be available to enter only via my newsletter. Suffice to say the contest has something to do with the cover of the upcoming book! If you haven’t already subscribed, you can join my newsletter here. Contest details will be mailed to you on Wednesday, August 19th if you sign up in time. I hope to see you there!
Tortured by the curse on his family and the looming death of his father, Tarmien Dagmar must juggle the family business and his father’s insistence that he find a bride.
Then he meets Stella, a hotel housekeeper in his employ who fully intends to hate him …
I’m excited to announce the prequel to my contemporary Gothic paranormal romance series! I had loads of fun writing this novella, uncovering the background of the magician, Stephen Dagmar’s, family.
The Magician’s Sire is a complete story that contains no spoilers for Book One of the series, The Magician’s Curse. And if you’ve already read the other books in the series, The Magician’s Sire will give you a better understanding of how the story came about.
You can have my new book in your hands within the next few minutes. Just click this link and let me know where to send it!
He’s a hotel CEO with a bad reputation. She’s a distant employee, hard-working and honest. Can she resist falling for his otherworldly charms?
Tarmien Dagmar has no love life. He’s too busy running a worldwide hotel chain. But when he comes home to preside over the details of his father’s imminent death, he meets a woman who takes over his dreams.
Stella is happy with her job as a housekeeper at the Quillmar Hotel. But when she meets the CEO after saving the hotel’s reputation, she’s taken on an unparalleled empathic journey.
As their connection grows stronger, Tarmien sets his sights on Stella. The only thing standing in the way of true love is that he’s her boss … and the descendant of an incubus.

At the risk of bringing the ire of ‘Zon upon myself, I’d like to enlighten you on how much better the Kobo experience is, no matter where you are in the world.
Yes, I might be a tad biased since Kobo is a Canadian company, but having dealt with them longer than I’ve been publishing books, I can honestly say I’ve always had a great relationship with them, any time I’ve needed to contact them.
They’re an organization of human beings who care about what they do. This is their mission statement, copied from their career page:
We are a company built by booklovers for booklovers. We believe people should be able to read anywhere in the world, on any device, and in any language.
With a growing catalogue of millions of titles in 97 languages, Kobo is a truly global eReading service for booklovers of all kinds, in every part of the world.

They’re good to their authors!!
I could go on and on about what’s wrong with Amazon right now, but I won’t. What I will tell you is that more and more I’m seeing authors go wide (removing their titles from KDP Select, which demands exclusivity to Amazon), and moving to Kobo, among other e-book retailers.
I’m not being paid to post this article–I’m writing it because I truly believe in Kobo and what they do.
If you love reading, and you enjoy being able to grab your favorite author’s novels at the click of a button, why not sign up with Kobo?
I had to go to sleep behalf way through, but got back to it after work and finished it. Good story. Interesting dilemma for an honest man in love. Looking forward to the second in the series. ~ 5 Stars – Loves to read and review, Amazon.com
This book was great. From the wonderful characters, to the amazingly believable unbelievable story line. Confused? Well, although we all know magic isn’t real, the author makes it all make sense. This story about a young woman, Herman, and the man she meets. He is trying to break a curse that was placed on his family. i feel like i would be giving away spoilers by continuing. So, just read the book and you won’t be disappointed. The only complaint i have is I wanted to continue reading the next story now. ~ 4 Stars – hlee, Amazon.com
I must say Ms. Hill writes a very engaging story about two very interesting characters who meet and fall in love. I normally do not read books with younger characters, but this talented author had me hooked from the very beginning. I love mystery with a darker side and truly enjoyed The Magician’s Curse. I eagerly await more from Ms. Hill. Hope she is a fast writer! ~ 5 Stars – Lorey Frazher, Amazon.com
There will be a couple of other posts on this subject over the next few days, but this one is for my regular readers, just to explain what kind of crazy (and exciting!) week it’s been for me. To explain why The Magician’s Curse is free for the rest of the month and maybe a bit beyond. I never really wanted it to be free, but I figured it was my best chance …
You see, I decided, just on a whim, to submit The Magician’s Curse to *BookBub as a Featured Deal. Total long shot, as they receive hundreds of submissions a day. It’s like winning the lottery. … AND I WON!! On July 24th, an e-mail will go out to roughly 870,000(!!!) subscribers to let them know my book exists and that it’s free!!!
This is HUGE for me (said Captain Obvious), so it was important that I get the second book in the series ready to go. And that’s what I’ve been doing for the past week.
If you haven’t read it yet, now is the time to get it. It will go back up to full price after the BookBub Feature, but it may stay on sale for a while longer if another submission comes through for me of a similar type, but exclusively through KOBO.
And finally, my other exciting news: the second book in The Great Dagmaru series is available for pre-order! My darling friend, Belinda Borradaile, (click on her name and follow her amazing FB page) really outdid herself with the new cover. Isn’t it gorgeous?
The Magician’s Blood is at the special low pre-order price of $2.99 until its release on August 10th. After that, the price will go up to $4.99, so be sure to pick it up early! (Click here.)
Here’s the blurb:
Herman Anderson is in love. Thrilled to travel across Canada with her boyfriend as his assistant onstage, she returns to her hometown—the first stop on the Great Dagmaru magic tour. Anticipating a reunion with her brother, instead she finds her family has moved without a trace.
Stephen Dagmar’s career as a stage magician is taking off. With Herman by his side, his only concern is her father’s dislike for him. But as Herman’s father makes a prediction and resolves to come between them, Stephen’s family curse returns to haunt him.
Darkness descends as the reality of the Dagmar’s incubus bloodline surfaces for the first time in over a generation. Can Herman and Stephen’s relationship survive this new trial? Will Herman survive at all?
A sinful tale of beauty and romance, love and determination, The Magician’s Blood will chill you and leave you breathless for more.
*18+ Contains explicit scenes.
This one is NOT a Young Adult book, as many readers seemed to think The Magician’s Curse was meant to be. So be forewarned.
Just a quick note about BookBub, in case you want to subscribe: I mentioned BookBub in another post here. Once you subscribe, you let them know what your favourite genres are and then they send you e-mails on a daily basis to alert you when there’s a sale on. You can also follow your favourite authors, so you’ll know right away when there’s a new release … your favourite authors like me … (click here if I’m not being obvious enough). 😉
Obviously, I won’t be sleeping much until this Tuesday and probably beyond. Knowing that I can expect (re: BookBub’s average download count for my genre) 22,600 copies of my book to fly off the virtual shelf tends to come with a prerequisite hourly SQUEE!!
