I’ve been reading an HR serial by an author, and was really liking it, was patient with the wait since she promised fast delivery. I got invested in the series. Installment #5 dropped today and… nothing. Zero resolution. When I’m told this will be installment 5 of 5, I expect something other than another cliffhanger. Now there will be other installments under a different title. I’m not interested. I feel cheated. I feel teased and let down. I put in the time and $, and did not receive the expected payoff. Note to authors: People like to binge watch (hello Netflix!) and people like to binge read. Enough with the dragging out of the story. I want to pick up an author and read her all weekend. I don’t enjoy being endlessly teased and then let down at the end.
I’m still not happy with the cover, but moved on to working on the blurb: An intergalactic warlord fresh from the fight, he’s looking forward to a nice break before the next war. He has no idea what to do with the governorship and the princess he receives as reward. He’s a rough and tough beast. He’s a space warrior. He doesn’t know the first thing about planet living or princesses. All he knows is that she’s his, and he’s never going to let her go. She’s a princess of a fallen kingdom. She is the conqueror’s prize. But she will bow to no one. She might have to surrender her body to the beast, but she will not surrender her heart. Let the bedroom games begin!
