Tender Bait's made it to Amazon!

Well, the book made it to Amazon:

Unfortunately when you search for it, it's hard to tell the abridged no-sex version from the full version, so look here for all the juicy stuff:

Or look here for the abridged no-sex version:

I'm so excited!!!

I am waiting for my book to become available on right now! I finally...yes, all my edits in and sent it to for publishing. This is my first real published work. It was a ton of work and even more fun! Super excited to see what it looks like on Amazon. I published my full version, including explicit sexual content, of Tender Bait. AND I have also created an abridged version with no actual sexual content in the pages of the book. I hope this will make it accessible to more readers and less offensive to those who prefer romance without the sex. Anyway, please look it up. If you've already read it then leave a review. If you haven't then please read it and review it.

Playing with Logos

Well, if we have a blog like this, maybe we want a logo to go with it.  And since I'm mucking with the logos, I may as well share.  Here're some things we're leaning toward at least for now.

"Lazy Tales" contains an obvious play on words with tail, so the idea of incorporating a tail was kind of a no brainer.  Keeping with the "What's in a Name" post, the logo should be fun, not too serious, yet hopefully not too silly.

Eventually you're going to find writing here from many different genres, so the dragon is a bit of a risk, it may not fit so well with sci-fi or mysteries.  On the other hand, there's a history of dragon's being associated with books and reading.  Hopefully people won't find it too distracting.

Or maybe the dragon needs to wear a deerstalker or space suit when we have books in those genres.

What's in a Name?

We picked Lazy Tales (now Lazy Tales, Ltd.) because we wanted to invoke the idea of reading for fun.  Don't expect to see a textbook here (well, maybe if it was a really, really, exceptionally fun textbook!)

The goal is that readers can feel comfortable that when they pick up a book, they should at least feel like it will be fun to read.  Something you might pick for a lazy day.  We like books that are enjoyable, ones that readers love to read.  It's great when you just can't put down a book, and the last thing we want is for people to feel reading is a chore. 

Hopefully you won't feel like you have to plod through several chapters, hoping that the story gets better.  Nor should you have to struggle with the writing because the plot caught you and you really want to know what the author had in mind, but there's a bunch of words in the way.

Of course it's tough to be engaging to everyone all the time, but idea of Lazy Tales are that we should be above average.
