IMPORTANT CHANGES: I am retiring

Things are changing over here. I went on hiatus in December (was it?), unsure of when I'll be back. Well, I have made a decision which I thought I'd never make.

Azalea is retiring.


It's been a great run, but considering the ever-changing market, I cannot keep up. Plus, I've found many other pleasurable hobbies to pursue and fuel my creative mind. 

So, here is the deal. 

My twitter is gone.

I'm debating on deleting either the website or this blog. But it's not an easy decision. I want to keep some form of Azalea available on the interwebs since she was once here -- ya' know? But I gotta decide which one to keep.

All of my remaining self-published books are deactivated, except for A Hell-Hounds Tale and the random freebies I still had up. However, this isn't going to be permanent. I have plans to make the series "Dark Night Skies" a forever freebie in the next coming months. Look out for that if you haven't read it yet!

Now that I think of it, best to delete the website and keep the blog if there's no books left. LOL

Quick note: Allromance links disabled

Posting a quick note: For those of you aware of the disaster that is ARe closing, all my self-published books are now disabled. Buy links will take you to a blank page. I do plan on cleaning up the links via my website asap, but until then, my books are still available everywhere else ebooks are sold.



If you've purchased a book from ARe and can no longer download it, please provide the receipt to my email address in the "Contact Me" link above and I will send the book in your preferred format.

Self published books affected: Dark Night Skies, Wicked Intentions, A Bitter Sanctuary, Dark Night Skies Collection, and A Rogue's Power.



I haven't much to say about this travesty anymore. All I have to offer is *hugs* to all authors and publishers affected.



Let the hiatus continue...

Important Announcement: Hiatus Eminent

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT


It has been on my mind for several months. Due to issues in my real life and the fact that I need a break, I am taking an indefinate hiatus from publishing effective immediately.

So what's an indefinate hiatus? Simply it means I do not know when/if Azalea will be back. I could return in a couple months, a year, 2 years, or ever. 

But I really need this, guys. 


Q. Wait, wait, wait... What? What about your books?

A. They are all still available wherever ebooks are sold. I haven't moved them, except for some very old ones. 


Q. Will you maintain your website?

A. Only to remove books no longer in publication when the time comes.


Q. Will you maintain your social media?

A. I might stalk Facebook from time to time, but I'll be going dark for the most part. Doesn't matter, really. I mostly stopped posting on Twitter a long time ago.


Q. Are you retiring?

A. Nope, I didn't say anything about retiring. I only said I may never come back. *shrugs*


Q. How can I get ahold of you now?

A. My email in the "Contact Me" tab above is still very active. Please contact me there.




Thank you, everyone, for your support over the years. It's truly been a blast!

Five years and something many books later...


Happy 5 years (and a week) of Azalea Moone!

Nope, it's not my "real" birthday, but it's Azalea's. Five years (and a week) ago, I published my first book: Dark Night Skies.

A helluva lot of stuff has happened since then. I worked with various publishers, I self-published some more, and I participated in two Goodreads M/M group's annual Don't Read in the Closet events. There were good things and there were bad, but I persevered and found my true passion in writing.

Thanks to everyone who's helped along the way: readers, beta-readers, mentors, and acquaintances.
 
So, what's next?
 
I'll be participating in NaNoWriMo again this coming month, November 2016. Then in December, I have a very, very important announcement, so please keep in touch with me on the blog to know what evil and malicious thing I'm planning!

Operation Wasteland: Retribution is coming!

Operation Wasteland: Retribution
Coming October 25th, 2016


Book 3 in the Operation Wasteland series!




Left to fend for himself, Leyton is dismissed from the military with Preston at his side. Their only retreat is the horrid and shattered city the military once tried to create as a safe haven from the wasteland. Just as Leyton resigns himself to life there, Preston has other plans: To organize a raid of the military base and retrieve Randy, the man they left behind.

Yet, survival in the city isn’t so easy. Not only must they contend with the corrupt military and their new laws, but Leyton also deals with his returning affection for Preston—the young man he once saved from the wasteland years ago. Love is possible in such tragic times, but can they rescue Randy and attain their freedom once and for all?
