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


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?

Coming Soon: An oldie but a goodie!

Coming Soon:

Remember this one?

A Hell-hounds Tale
(aka When Hounds Come Out to Play)

Releasing Sept. 20, 2016!

It’s Halloween night. Hellhounds Keir and Ryu are prowling the night, seeking condemned souls to take back to the underworld. But being among the humans proves too tempting for Ryu. He escapes his duties to party among the mortals, and in the process finds himself in the middle of a mistaken identity with a sexy stranger.

Quick update

Yes, I really suck at keeping my blog up-to-date, so here is a quick update for those watching:

I have finished and sent Operation Wasteland: Retribution to Evernight! Stay tuned for a release date, which should come soon.

Other than that, I am working on the Dreamtide series books 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. *winks* Which, I should add, will be the first series I've authored that goes beyond three books!

Where else can I follow Azalea? Well, I post more often on Facebok, so that would be the best place:

Operation Wasteland: Grudge!

Now available!
Operation Wasteland #2: Grudge
Buy it now! Evernight Publishing

It’s been a week since leaving the hellish wasteland Preston’s known so well. He’s agreed to travel to the promised land of AiltonCity with Randy, the hybrid droid who captured his heart and saved him from utter solitude. Though he’s looking forward to life in a new place, he’s also going with one thing on his mind: why did the military end Operation Wasteland?

Though once arriving in the city, he realizes it’s just as barren and sordid as the wasteland itself. If only they would accept him into the military base, he’d have food, water, and medication aplenty. However, someone is awaiting his arrival, and suddenly Preston finds that all he’s known for the last four years was based on deception. Can he succumb to the ghost of an ex-lover come back to haunt him?

Unplanned social media hiatus :O

If any of you guys follow me on social media: Facebook, Twitter, etc -- you will notice that I kind of stopped posting this last year. Sure, I might post here and there, but not much at all. Okay, okay. Let's just admit that I'm terrible at keeping up with social media anyway. But I guess you could say I've been taking an unplanned social media hiatus.

So what happened?

A lot of stuff. Real life. An interest in a different "hobby". Illness.You know, those sort of things.

I got sick in March with a cold, then again in April which was a helluva lot worse and I'm still suffering a bit from that. Plus there are allergies on top of it.

And, well, RL is just drama hell altogether. LOL

The hobby I won't speak about here.

So, you know. Lots and lots of stuff going on. Does this mean I haven't been writing? Hells no! I'm still churning out words on "A Fool's Errand" and on "Operation Wasteland" releases. ;)

Ooh yeah, did I say Operation Wasteland? Sure did! Now I have no clue on the exact date, but Operation Wasteland: Grudge will release very, very soon. And, yes, I'm working on OW: Retribution, the third and (not) final book in the series. But it will be Preston and Randy's (and ??) final book together.

Not final... Please don't tease. What do I mean my "not" final? Basically, I have plot bunnies happily hopping around in my brain that I want to KILL! *ahem* WRITE!

I'll have more details later. xD

Damn, I completely forgot to update this!

Holy crap, I forgot to update this! I was going to wish ya'll a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and all that, but whoopsi!

I've been quite busy with writing, family, appointments galore...

So, yeah. Hope everyone had wonderful holiday celebrations!

And while I'm here, you can now grab some perma-discounts of my older self-published books:

Dark Night Skies books 1-3 for .99 cents, and the collection is now 2.99 (from 3.99)
For the Long Haul .99 cents

Find them every where books are sold!

As for the plans for this month and next, I'm going to *ahem* try to redo this blog and my website design. We'll see how that goes...
