It's been a while since I've blogged.  My apologies, but life has been chaotic at best.  I'm trying to get a handle on things, so please be patient with me.

Let's start with UPCOMING EVENTS:

Baltimore, MD:

July 8, 2017
Marriott Hotel by the airport
SaSS2017 Signing - Casino Themed


Orlando, FL: 

July 22, 2017
Hyatt Regency  - Orlando International Airport
12 pm - 12 am
Booker Author Event  2017


There are more events coming in August, September, and October of this year, plus I'm already planning for 2018 and 2019.


Now onto the NEWS:

RELEASES:

Elusive - June 22nd

#Steamy, #Suspenseful #Romance  - This is my first standalone book.  For those who've read the Need Series and started Titan Security, I do pull a few characters in to help out with the story line.    Here's the buy link to Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Elusive-Romantic-Standalone-Cynthia-ONeill-ebook/dp/B072JTPSHC

The pre-order and release price has been set for $0.99, but will go up after two weeks to $2.99.   It's also available on Nook through Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords (for any format you're looking for).  I'll be posting buy links in a few days and it's already up on my facebook page at  www.facebook.com/authorcynthiaponeill

It's hard to fit this book into a category.  It hits Contemporary, touched on Erotic (but a lot lighter than most of my books), full of edge of your seat suspense, a touch of mystery and thrills, it also classifies as Coming of Age, with a little corporate espionage thrown in for fun, and just plain old romance.   I'm not going to list any finite details of the book here, because I want the blurb to speak for itself. 



For the Titan Security fans (a Need Series spin-off):

Derrick's Choice - Titan #1, is already out and the price has been dropped in preparation for Titan #2 to be released in August.  Each book in this series is read as a standalone or can be combined with other books. 

Jonas's Redemption - Titan #2 is a current WORK IN PROGRESS, with an anticipated release date of August 17, 2017.   This is a standalone book.  Tons of suspense, romance, and thrills.  The pre-order and release price will be set at $0.99, but will not stay at that price for long.  The cover for this book will happen in July.  Check back for the dates and keep up with me on my Facebook author page for the up-to-date details.


That's about it for now.  I'll try to do better with blogging. 

I'm BACK!

I know I've been bad about writing and keeping the blog updated.  I've been busy with regular life, writing ideas down, and finishing up the final book in the Need Series, I Need You Forever, Need #5.  Life has been hectic to put it mildly, but I wouldn't have it any other way.  I love what I do and I enjoy living in the world of fiction and fantasy to create new stories.  

It's odd since Need was only supposed to be one book, then as I was writing the first, it turned into the need for a couple more stories.  As the story progressed, Nate and Ethan became primary characters, deserving their own stories.  It's been an intense ride and I keep trying to see how far I can push the action and adventure, as well as the steam to keep everyone on the edge of their seats.  Yes, I love drama! 

I've had a few people ask me to keep the Need series going, but I've already written all I can about the Prescott family, but their friends, and an employee or two, are now free game in the upcoming series, a spin-off, called Titan Security, Derrick's Choice.  I tossed around the idea in book three of Need and it started taking on a life of it's own. So while the Prescott family is done, there will be an occasional update in the new series, because hey...inquiring minds want to know, right? Those of you wondering what Derrick's all about, you'll get your chance to find out.  I would say more, but you'll have to wait and see.  I'm hoping to release sometime this summer.  Currently, there's no timeline for this book, but the front cover picture has already been determined and all I can say is Derrick is one handsome hottie extreme! 

FYI...there's a prologue of Derrick's book at the end of  I Need You Forever. 

To celebrate the end of the series, I'm currently having a $0.99 sale that runs through midnight April 10th.  I'm worldwide on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Smashwords.  For those wanting iBook, Kobo, or Sony formats, just go through Smashwords and you can download the format you desire. 

I need to go and get back to work dreaming of all the steam I plan to put into the next book and how I can kick it up another notch!  I'll try to start blogging at least twice a month, so be sure to check back here often. 

Ciao! 

New Release for the Need Series Nov 12th

Posted on November 4, 2015 at 11:48 PM Comments comments (0)
There's a new release coming in the Need Series line-up. 

I Need You Too - Need #4 is coming November 12, 2015. 

With the holidays approaching, the pre-order and introductory two weeks price will be $0.99. To Pre-Order:















This is a Complete Novel. No cliffhanger. Dual POV. Rated 18+ due to adult language and sexual content. This is an adult contemporary erotic romance filled with suspense, light BDSM, Dom/sub play, and touching on some psychological elements. This series centers around the Prescott family, their friends, and businesses. It includes unsavory characters, a horrid ex-husband, and a security team, made up of ex-military personnel, that will go to any lengths to protect this family. These are stand alone books that create the series, but they do not need to be read in order. The story is more enhanced if read in order.

I Need You Always, Need #1
I Need You Now, Need #2
I Need You Here, Need #3
I Need You Too, Need #4
I Need You Forever, Need #5 - Coming February 2016

Ethan McDonald had everything he wanted in life until one jerk’s misconceptions caused him to be in an accident - inadvertently taking another’s life and nearly costing him his own. Months later he woke from a coma to find how much things had changed. He found forgiveness from the victim’s family, but could he find absolution from her husband and more importantly – himself.

It took months for him to integrate back into society. His friend, Nate, helped him refocus his life with the need for assistance in catching the culprit behind all the accounting mistakes at work. In turn, he was welcomed into Prescott International, as the new lead in IT. He’d gained favor from the family, especially from a certain lady…

Marjorie (Prescott) Bentley had finally succeeded in divorcing her husband and making her way back to her family and the company business. She’d been into the BDSM scene, but her ex, a wannabe Dom, nearly destroyed her, wanting her only for her wealth. She’d put on a friendly face to everyone, but internally she was trying to overcome the nightmares and struggles to find her way back to her old life, with her need to submit, her need for him…

Ethan and Marjorie saw through each other’s masquerades and found support with one another. But could they both let go of the nightmares of their pasts and move forward together? Could they both learn to heal, surrendering to one another, and their darkest desires?

She needed him, but he needed her Too!

Follow-Up to the Jingle Blog Hop

Posted on January 8, 2015 at 8:17 PM Comments comments (0)
Thank you to all that stopped by for the Blog Hop.  It warmed my heart to see so many comments posted. 

I know the hop has been over for some time and I want to offer my sincerest apologies for being late on delivering the free books promised.  I was able to get some out before  my family and I got sick and then had a family emergency all hit within a couple of weeks. 

Since I'm a newer author, I don't have a personal assistant or anyone to help me get the things I need to do - done.  But, know that I'm working as quickly as I can to make things right with everyone and to those who've been patiently waiting, I am throwing in a little something extra.  So please know, your books are coming.  I do follow through on my promises, just doing it a little slower than I'd like thanks to circumstances. 

Thank you for your patience. 

UPDATE - I've replied to ALL the comments!!!  WOOHOO!!  I did, however, have a couple come back as undeliverable, with the email address given.

Jingle Bell Book Hop:   Free Books and Giveaways!
















Welcome to the Jingle Bell Book Hop!

Christmas is one of my favorite times of year.  It's not because of the gifts, the sweets, or even how crazy things get this time of year.  Actually, I could do without all that.  Instead it's the special memories, times with family, and the love you feel this time of year. 

I guess I inherit my love for Christmas from my parents, especially my father.  He passed away over 16 years ago.  I think of him often, but it's not around his birthday, or when he passed, but I miss him most at Christmas time.  He taught me to decorate and bring joy to others through your decorations, sharing what you could at Christmas, as well as all year through, and to just enjoy what the season stands for, which is Love.

Every holiday, he'd pick oranges from one of our orange trees and we'd juice fresh oranges for all the neighbors and friends.  Mom would do some baking, which I later joined in doing, and we'd gather all the items up and go deliver them to everyone. 

While these memories make me warm and fuzzy, it's the silly times we had, when I was very young, that pop into my mind most.  One specific year we had two special memories.  My dad and I put together the Christmas tree, and wondered why the branches were so bent out of shape.  When we looked closer we discovered it was our cat stretched across four branches, sitting up in the tree, like he was king of the tree. 

The very same year, on Christmas morning, I had left a Santa cup I'd made in school, using cotton balls, felt, and a red solo cup.  I was so excited to leave it for Santa and give him a gift for Christmas.  I heard a noise in the kitchen area and found the cup dropped on the ground leading to the backdoor of our house with my dad and our cat looking out toward the sky and waving, or in the cat's case, pawing at the sky.  My dad explained that we must've been last on Santa's stops for the night.  He'd gotten up to check a noise and must've spooked Santa, so he dropped the cup and ran to jump in his sleigh. 

We've had many more memories since that time.  I think I was about eight or nine years old then.  But, that'll always be the Christmas memory that pops to mind the most.  My father could spin some Christmas stories, but I loved it and use some of his inspirations today to create my own memories with my family. 

If you're following this blog hop, you already know one of the SURPRISES is
