Visiting With Zack and Rose

by Pepper on April 16, 2011

It’s been a little over a week since my novella, NAKED TREATS, came out in ebook from Evernight Publishing. And it’s been a good six weeks since the edits were done and submitted. I had an hour to kill last night, so I decided I’d pull up NAKED TREATS on my Kindle and read it through, just to try and see it as a reader might. To see if it holds together and entertains, the way I intended when I wrote it.

The first thing that struck me was the formatting. I don’t know why ebook formatting goes haywire sometimes, with whole blocks of text indented or whole pages blank. Those bug me, because I don’t want my reader to think I don’t know how to format a book. The next thing to get under my skin were the edits. The copy editor I had doesn’t like extraneous commas, but I think comma eradication got carried a bit too far. I wish I had stood my ground and kept in more of the commas she wanted taken out. Next time I will.

Aside from these complaints though, I thought the story read smoothly. The characters were likable, the action interesting, the pacing good, the mirror scene pretty darn hot. I liked it! As a reader, I would read me again. :o)

So, if you have an hour or so, please download and read NAKED TREATS. Then please do leave an honest review on Amazon.

One caveat: Evernight rates the “heat” of its stories from 1 – 4, with one being sweet and four being borderline porn. I had submitted my story with a “3” rating for explicit language and detailed descriptions of sex. Evernight decided to rate it a 2. So let me apologize in advance for offending anyone who might be expecting a tamer read.

Happy reading!

Hey Pepper: I just read your book Naked Treats. It was a great read. I thought the sex was very well described and very sexy. I will definitly be watching your website to see what else you are working on. Good job!

Thank you Crystal. I’m really glad you enjoyed NAKED TREATS. I always appreciate feedback from readers. Right now I’m working on an IR romance that should be released this summer sometime. I hope you’ll enjoy it. Thanks again for stopping by.
