Since riptidepublishing isn’t doing pre-ordering through Amazon (which I prefer for the sole reason of whispersync on my Kindle), I went ahead and pre-ordered Ball & Chain and Cross & Crown from their website.
Fantastic stuff. Now back to the waiting game. :(
Alas, we would if we could! Amazon doesn’t offer pre-order capacity to small pubs using the KDP platform. We don’t know why, and it’s extremely frustrating, but we’ve been asking for two years and it doesn’t look like they’re planning to change that anytime soon :(
Thank you so much though for ordering direct instead—it makes a huge difference to the author’s royalties! (She’ll make about $1.50 more on that one sale than she would’ve if you’d bought it at Amazon.) Plus now you’ll get the book two days early (all titles pre-ordered on our site are available two days before the official release date), and you’ve also been entered into our Free Books for a Year contest (every book you pre-order earns you an entry). You’ve also earned Bonus Bucks you can use to get free books when you’ve accumulated enough. And when the time comes to download, we have a “Send to Kindle” button you can use for one-click transmission to your device, just like Amazon (well, okay, the first time you’ll have to enter your Kindle device email, so two clicks :-p).
Hmm, that ended up much longer than I was expecting it to be. tl;dr, we offer lots of awesome reasons to skip Amazon :) Happy reading!
This is good to know. I will be ordering from your website instead of Amazon so the author gets more royalty money.
I just legitimately lost my shit in the car when Shoop came on. I rocked that whole bitch.
This is the song my friends & I put on in college to get us pumped up and in a great mood before we went out to a party. I still sing into an imaginary microphone and shake my ass whenever I hear this song.

brainsludgemissives asked: #11 and #78 please.
11: We were about to ____________ but then ______________ [example: we were about to have sex but then his mom walked in]
We were (not about to, but actually) going at it doggy style, fully naked, window blinds open, but then his roommate walked in.
78: If you had a penis/pussy for a day, what are five things you would do?
I listed these three a while back, on some other post I reblogged (can’t find the OP):
1. Penetrate anything even remotely appealing. ANY-THING.
2. Cum on random shit. Like the space heater, a post-it note or a bar of soap.
3. Slap it on Sir’s arm, or face, or other bodily surfaces. For hilarious revenge.
Let me think of 2 more…
4. Try to have at least 25 erections throughout the day, and see if at some point I passed out from lack of blood to the brain (for science).
5. Do the helicopter. A lot.
In my head, 3 & 5 are combining and I can’t stop laughing. Revenge helicopter to the face.
