Update on the L’Amour Bayou Series by Sloane Nicole

L’Amour Bayou is a continuing adult paranormal romance series by Sloane Nicole, my pen name for Paranormal Adult Romance.

It is very important to note that it is not a standalone series and that each book will focus on one particular couple but the series will continue as a whole.

No book should be read as a standalone as every preceding book has vital information including plot, characters, back story, etc.

The first book, Antoinette’s Fall, is novella length and absolutely must be read to be introduced to L’Amour Bayou and the main focus of the series.

Antoinette’s Fall has also just undergone a revision and over 3500 words were added. It was also re-edited and the price was dropped! It’s now only .99!

If you’ve previously read Antoinette’s Fall, you’ll want to update your copy to the latest version via your purchase site and reread it to get the expanded story! Some very important information was added.

Fate Awakened is Book 2 of L’Amour Bayou and as I’m currently writing it, it’ll release this summer! I’ll publish the details on the release HERE, on my blog and pages, as soon as I have them!

If you have read the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead, the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris, the Twilight series by Stephanie Meyer, The Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins, the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, etc. you’re familiar with continuing series’.

They are not meant to be standalones. The books could very well end with cliffhangers. However, the story as a whole continues with each book!

If you haven’t one clicked Antoinette’s Fall, here are the purchase links:

B&N, iBooks, KOBO, Baker&Taylor, OverDrive, and Bibleotheca

I am so excited about this series and my renewed vigor to create the stories!

I can’t tell you how many books the series will contain. I have no idea. But, until the story is finished, you’ll get new books!

As always, thank you for the continued support and love!

Today is the official reveal for the cover and blurb of Fate Awakened, A L’Amour Bayou Novel by Skye Turner writing as Sloane Nicole.

L’Amour Bayou is an adult paranormal/fantasy romance series that continues with each book. Each book focuses on one particular couple but every previous character, as well as new characters, are immersed within the story.

Here’s the absolutely stunning cover created by Tracie Douglas of Dark Water Covers.

I. Am. Obsessed.

And the full paperback cover.

Paperback cover

The blurb, aka book description:

Fate Awakened: A L’Amour Bayou Novel

Princess Glendula of the Florea, an Enchanter princess destined for the throne…

Fynn Levy, a human male with no knowledge of the existence of magic…

And a pull between them that cannot be denied. 

Everyone knows that L’Amour Bayou is special. Both Exceptionals and humans alike are captivated by the allure. 

L’Amour Bayou is home… the land she is destined to reign… that is, once she is bonded to her Kindred. 

There’s just one problem… she has a limited time to bond and zero interest in any Florean male.

Fynn Levy is a typical Louisiana man… he loves fishing, hunting, and spending every waking minute he isn’t working to provide for himself in Sportsman’s Paradise. 

A forbidden encounter on the banks of the Bayou change everything…

The world as Fynn knows it will never be the same… but, in a world ran by tradition and magic, does love stand a chance?!

Here’s the first “official” teaser from Fate Awakened!

Magic abounds…

If you haven’t read Antoinette’s Fall, A L’Amour Bayou Novella, I highly recommend you do as it introduces the world of L’Amour Bayou. And, these characters will certainly be back.

Antoinette’s Fall, A L’Amour Bayou Novella

Deep in the bayous in the south of Louisiana, lies a place of revelry, mystery, and magic…

Antoinette Dubois, an Intuitive, has always been a beautiful woman, with no interest in falling in love…

One fateful night on the banks of the bayou, under the light of a full moon, events start unfolding that have Antoinette losing control of her powers…

René Batiste has always been by Antoinette’s side. Together, they seek to reverse the upcoming calamity and to protect Antoinette.
René has loved Antoinette his entire life, but the curse on her family is dangerous for those who love the Dubois women, and means Antoinette is determined never to succumb to love.

However, fate has a tendency to make its own rules…

Welcome to L’Amour Bayou… where beauty and magic reside and nothing is as it seems.

RELEASE DAY! Alluring Surrender. Excerpt and Links.

Today is the RELEASE DAY for Alluring Surrender, Book 5 Bayou Stix. This is the last book of the Bayou Stix Series. Bayou Stix is a band and every book is based on a different member of the band. All can be read as standalones, with the exception of the novella (novella is only to be read after reading Alluring Turmoil, Book 1 Bayou Stix and Alluring Surrender, Book 2 Bayou Stix), but it is recommended that you read the series in order as each character is in each book and though each book focuses on a new couple, the previous couples stories are continued as well.

If you have not read any of the Bayou Stix Series… now is a GREAT time to jump on board.

The Day I Finally Felt Like an “Author.” RELEASE WEEK: ALLURING SURRENDER: DAY 4.

The Day I Finally “Felt” Like I Was an Author
By: Author Skye Turner

About seventeen months ago, I started on this journey called self-publishing. One day in the summer of 2013, while my husband was offshore and my kids were running around my house like crazy little people, I sat at my laptop and decided to get the ideas that were living in my head… out.

I wrote like a person possessed that day. I think I wrote something like nine thousand words. It was like now that I was finally allowing the voices in my head to talk, they had so much to say.

Chaos and Censorship in the Indie World

The shit has basically hit the proverbial fan in the Indie Author World over the past few days!

Online retailers have started pulling Indie Author Books, people are losing books on their devices, authors are panicking, readers are furious…

It’s a big old mess and it’s utter chaos.
