That’s right! Your eyes do not deceive you. It is I, Amelie Bliss, risen from the probably-dead! And really, I can explain.
Long ago, in that glimmering erstwhile year of 2015, when Obama was still in office and Bitch Better Have My Money was at the top of the charts, I started a noble endeavor – to write smutty but romantic novellas as fast as I everloving could.
And I did! That summer, I put out a new novella every two weeks, and if I do say so, each one was better than the one that came before it. I had found my calling. My truth. My passion!
Aaaand then life slapped me in the face with a long, boring crisis of the medical variety. While some people do get their jollies from biopsies and pharma cocktails and being cut open with teeny tiny knives, it has never really been my bag, and I found my ability to write pretty damn hampered by the drag of it all.
I won’t say I’m totally better, because I’m not. But I’m back in a place where I can write again, and as long as I can I will.
So, for Blissers who were invested from the start, blog enthusiasts, and any rando who happens onto this post, let me lay out for you what’s on the horizon, because there’s some exciting shit a’brewin’
1. Upgrades to the Current Library
All my current work is getting a face lift. Some of the covers are being polished up (slight font adjustments), but the real magic will be happening inside (ain’t that always the way?) with some pro formatting.
BONUS: Several books will be getting bonus chapters (of nothin’ but pure steam). These will be listed for free for all of my mailing list subscribers!
2. A Proper Launch for The Ringmistress
My last book was published as all of my personal dramas were leaving the ground. Sadly, I did not give it the love it deserved. There was never an announcement, no ARCs, and predictably, it launched with a fizzle. This is a real shame, because it is the intro to a series I am still very excited about and the heroine is probably my favorite of all the ladies I’ve written. So we’re doing this again, properly this time
BONUS: A brand new cover with a much sexier portrayal of my beloved Zadie
3. A New Damsel in Undress
Prickly Princess Portia wraps up my trilogy of a line of royal ladies in medieval times who find themselves in the most delightful sorts of trouble. Portia’s story is a little longer than her mother’s and sister’s, but is still in bite-sized novella form.
BONUS: Fan favorite Princess Adaline and her beloved Blacksmith return for several cameo scenes within.
With the long awaited conclusion of the Damsels in Undress trilogy, I can finally package up the three for a tidy discount. I will be doing the same for the Isis & Anubis duology, so keep an eye out for those if you don’t already own your own copies.
BONUS: These bundles will give me the chance to try something I haven’t yet experimented with – print editions! If you want physical Bliss, hang tight, it’s on the way.
5. Sekhmet’s Seduction
If you read Valley of Queens, you likely remember the heroine’s sultry little handmaiden. She’s getting her own book, set around the ascent of a new Pharaoh in the ancient city of Memphis. Poor dove is surrounded by sensual temptations, including the Pharaoh’s brooding little brother, a seductive Nubian princess, and worst of all, the masked thief who has been raining havoc on the coronation.
BONUS: This work will be my first full-length novel! That means a full-length, full-girth experience of nonstop adventure, chemistry, romance, and sexy encounters!
6. Coming Soon …
There’s a lot in the works for the future. Cirque de Femme will be introducing its Snake Charmer and a new series focused around an enchanted forest, full of temptation and danger, is just around the corner.
