I'm on my way back to blogger. This one is driving me slowly around the twist. I'm forever missing comments and what not. So you can find the new posts over here: http://kimdare.blogspot.co.uk/
As and when I get feeds sorted, the posts from there should be copied over here, hopefully, maybe... If I do it right, lol.
I've also just set up a twitter account. Kim Dare was taken so I'm Kim Dare Author. Come say hi! And see the picture I'm writing a story about https://mobile.twitter.com/KimDareAuthor
Huge thanks to everyone who joined my on my recent blog tour and on the various guest posts I've had going on.
The results for the giveaway are in! There are two winners. Each can choose three of my back list or coming soon titles. The only title that can't be picked is Once a Brat.
The winners are.........
Trix (with her comment on Coffee and Porn in the morning)
Emily (with her comment on Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews)
There's also a winner on A.B Gayle's blog - which she'll be releasing on the 19th February (sorry I couldn't reply to posts here - the blog just really doesn't seem to like me).
And keep your eye on M A Church's blog, she'll be announcing the winner there soon too.
I'm going to be away from the internet from 20th to 27th, so if you've won any of these giveaways and you get back to me tomorrow (UK time) I can send your choices through to you then. If you want to think about it for a while, just get back to me whenever you're ready - any choices that come through when I'm away, I'll send them through when I'm back online.
And that it for today I think. Have a wonderful week everyone!
Hello everyone :)
You may or may not be following the Once a Brat tour, but I now bring another chance to discover more about a different book.
This time I'm talking about Vanilla Licks and the Sun, Sea and Submission series. I'm at the lovely M. A. Church's blog with a post and a give away.

Have a great Tuesday all,
I can't remember the last time I blogged this often. But, if you are so inclined you can read posts by me every day this week - or sometimes even twice in the same day!
My first ever solo blog tour is happen as we speak. It was organised by the lovely people at Riptide.
So, if you have a few free minutes, drop by on any of the posts through the week, and you'll be entered into a giveaway of backlist or coming soon titles. The more posts you comment on the more chances you'll have to win!
There's an interview, an exclusive excerpt and lots of info and background about how this story came into being.
If you're inclined to spread the word about the blog tour, you're welcome to post either the banner or the pic below :)
Stops for this tour:
Hope you're all having a great week.
For the first time in a long while I did all the writing and editing on my to do list last week. I'm aiming to make it two weeks in a row now - wish me luck!
Hello again everyone,
Once a Brat is now available from Riptide Publishing.
It's MM, BDSM, Erotic Romance.
If you read the "I Blame Bret" stories, you may be interested to know that this is the story of how Bret and Marcus met. If you haven't read those titles, that's okay too. It can work as a stand alone.
Click on the pic to find out more about it.
Resplendence has just released Vanilla Licks - one week early.
Click on the cover to go to the Resplendence website, find out more, read an excerpt or buy the book.
It's a bit longer than the others in the Sun, Sea and Submission series, weighing in at about 28,000 words.
I will be back later in the week with more release news!
The second category will all have a forever place on my shelves. I've been catching up on my Terry Pratchett books.
My favourite was Nation - amazing young adult book, thoroughly recommended.
Since forever, there have been two Jane Austen books left on my to read list that I'd never got around to reading.
Emma was my favourite. Mr Knightly makes Mr Darcy look like a drama queen :) I also decided that it was about time for me to get to grips with another kind of classic.
My favourite was Mr Benson - John Preston is one of my new favourite people ever. I've been on a buying binge with his books ever since, but I'm pacing myself with reading them because he's not going to write anymore :(
Both rocked soooooo much. I stumbled on another new favourite author.
I know a little bit about the milder end of the OCD spectrum and she hit it spot on. I've got her second book on my to read list, but I'm a bit scared to read it, just in case it's not as good.
I've really enjoyed getting back into reading. I even bought an almost-nude to celebrate. (Haven't thought up an excuse for the others in my collection yet.)
And that's it for now. I'll be back with a writing round up and a Christmas post later in the month.
I feel like I should ask for a drum roll, not just because I have a new release, but because I am actually doing my month post on the first of the month.
One thing that somewhat dampens the "yay!" moment - pretty much the only thing I have going on in December is happening today. So I don't have that much to report, even if I am reporting it on the right day, lol.
On the other hand, what's happening today is really cool - and I have a few other bits of longer term news as well. Here we go...
Oh, Come All Ye Kinky is available today from Riptide Publishing. It's my first release with this publisher, so it's pretty exciting for me.
My story is MM, BDSM, erotic romance with a new year's theme. It's called His Very Last Chance.
If you've pre-ordered it, it's there now. If you haven't, feel free to buy it :) 20% of the proceeds are going to a great cause.
Click on the pic to find out lots more.
I'm also part of a blog tour for the anthology.
Click on the banner to find out where the posts will be when. (I wrote two and I took part in one other.)
If you're inclined to comment on the posts, it would be very cool.
In other news...
I've submitted Once a Brat - the third part of the I Blame Bret collection (or should that be the first part, since it's a prequel?) to Riptide publishing.
You can read the version of the blurb that I submitted with the story here.
This one was fun to write. Bret makes me smile.
Writing wise, I'm just coming to the end of the first draft of a story I'm writing for Total-e-bound. It's MM, BDSM, Contemporary. It's also the third story in the Collared series.
You'd be forgiven for thinking this series would never be continued, because it's been forever since I published any part of it. But, I am happy to report that all that will change next April.
I've also pencilled in the fourth installment with TEB, an MF BDSM for October.
On a similar note, I've also pencilled in another story with TEB for 2013. The first part of a new MM BDSM vampire series will come out with them in July.
My next first draft will be for a new project I've just agreed to take part in. This one is hush-hush, but it does mean I've got another release date pencilled in for 2013 - this time in May.
(Considering I promised myself not to pencil in anything after the end of 2012, I'm doing pretty good so far, right?)
That's it for today, I'll be back with a couple of posts to round off the year during this month. Until then...
In unrelated news, TEB is running two different offers at two different times...
Chris from stumbling over chaos has a give away running for the Oh, Come All Ye Kinky Anthology...
(If you've pre-ordered it, I'm happy to replace my copy with a backlist or future title.)
You can also drop by Hearts on Fire reviews and comment for a chance to win an e-book of your choice. That's here.
I think that's it for now. I am planning a series of posts as an end of year round up, so I should be around a bit more over the next few weeks - that's the plan anyway.
This was supposed to be a start of November post. I am so behind, both in terms of blogging and everything else, it's more than a little bit ridicilous.
I'm trying out a new system which I hope will get me back on track and out of the doldrums that I've been stuck in for most of this year.
Anyway, I now have a little bit of everything to report, so here goes...
Learning the Ropes is now finalised and expected to come out next Wednesday as scheduled. You can find the blurb by clicking on the cover below....
As you may remember, I have a story coming out in a Riptide anthology. I have a cover to share. If you click on it, you can go to the publishers website, read about all the stories that are included, read excerpts and even pre-order it!
Vanilla Licks has a cover now. It also has a new release date on February 13th 2013 (The change was requested by me, not the publisher.)
And, last but not least. I have just signed a contract with Riptide for another story!
Once a Brat is a prequal to the two I Blame Bret stories previously published by All Romance E-books as their Perfect Strangers series.
If you've ever wondered how Bret and Marcus got together, you'll have a chance to find out on February 11th 2013! If you've never heard of Marcus and Bret you can find out about them in the two books below.
I think that's about it for now. I'll be back on Wednesday with a buy link for Turning the Tables.
