NEWS! HM Ward’s New Releases

brokenpromisesA lot of people ask me which book is coming out next, and what date will it be available. That’s a great question and with the normal author who puts out one book a year, there is usually a concrete date. Since I put out nearly 25 books a year, release dates are a little more fluid.

Say what, now? What do you mean?

I mean that I do LIVE LAUNCHES. I call them that and have for the past few years. A live launch is where there is no pre-order or release date. Instead, the book comes out as soon as it’s ready with NO waiting.

THE BOOK IS ALWAYS READY BEFORE YOU’D GET IT, IF A DATE & *PRE-ORDER WAS SET. Pre-order/ concrete dates actually delays your book’s release by about 2-3 weeks. No one wants to wait longer.

This is the list of books that are in the pipeline for publication. Completion dates will vary, but this way you have an idea of what I’m working on, and what’s coming next.

I’m always working on multiple projects at a time. It’s how I write. When I’m not feeling one character or story, I’ll flip to a different book. That allows me to keep the release pace quick, and it gets you guys more books, faster.

shadowstwitterbannerBooks that are listed on the COMING SOON page of the website are in the creation phase and do not have a release date. When a date is assigned, the book will be removed from this list and added to the BOOKS page.

This year the goal is to release TWO titles per MONTH! Wahoo! In the past four months, there have been EIGHT releases, so I’m pretty much on course.

I expect the next release to be SHADOWS OF THE PAST – a NOVEL (360 pgs), no cliffhanger in early March. I hesitate to even say that as there are a variety of factors that affect the release, but it’s getting close.

SO HOW DO WE KNOW WHEN A BOOK IS BEING RELEASED?

Good question. There are three ways to make sure you don’t miss a release.

  1. For the fastest news on releases, links, and questions my FACEBOOK AUTHOR PAGE IS THE PLACE TO BE. I’m actually ON THAT PAGE more than anywhere else online. To make sure you are getting this page in your feed, click to check your settings and mark it as a favorite.
  2. Still worried you’ll miss a release? Text AWESOMEBOOKS (1 word) to 22828 (US Only). This will get you and email on release days. You can click here to be added too.
  3. The third place to stay connected is the blog – it’s updated with every release and includes links. You can have the blog posts emailed to you to by scrolling down until you see GET BLOG POSTS EMAILED! in the right hand column. Add your email address and that’s it!

Thank you so much! More books coming soon!

*Pre-order is available on iBooks on certain titles to expedite delivery. This is an exception to the rule. Dates on these preorders are set far into the future with the WRONG date. iBooks are released at the same time as the rest of the sites (Amazon, Kobo, Nook, etc).

Pre-order at iBooks is experimental for HM Ward Press and can end at any time. 

In case you were wondering what’s up, there ya go. :)

New Release! LIFE BEFORE DAMAGED 5 by HM Ward

Muscular bodyHot new release! LIFE BEFORE DAMAGED 5 came out today!

BY NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR HM WARD

Money. Power. Sex.

This can’t be happening. Maybe storming off to the club and getting sloshed was a bad idea, but I couldn’t handle all that’s happened. Forget for a while, that’s all I wanted. After dancing with the wrong guy all night I planned on forgetting everything troubling me while rolling around in his bed. The problem is the guy is Pete Ferro and I’m me. It’s a horrible plan to get all sinful and sweaty with him, but it’s exactly what I need. One night with no connections, no worries, and a guy who isn’t after my money or my family.

Screw it. I’m going to get lucky.

Genre: New Adult Romance

Put these two together and THAT is a bomb ready to explode! Excellent writing that includes passion, struggling, morals, values and you, feeling as if you are right there beside each character watching everything unfold…Thanks for the total body reaction, H.M.

New Release: LIFE BEFORE DAMAGED, VOLUME 2, by H.M. Ward

LIFE BEFORE DAMAGED, VOLUME 2, by New York Times Bestselling Author H.M. Ward is out today!

Muscular body

Description:
BY NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR HM WARD

Guilt ravages me, swallowing me whole. It steals my sleep and knots my stomach. I was the princess, the perfect Granz heiress, but no longer. That part of my life went up in flames, taking my future with it.

What remains is a shadow, a girl with no future and a terrible secret. There’s only one soul who knows the extent of my sins, and I can’t shake his beautiful face from my mind. The memories of being near him that night are charged. They linger, but going after Pete is like trying to catch smoke in my hand.

The pull toward this sexy man is unreal, and that’s what I keep telling myself—the Pete Ferro I saw that night doesn’t exist. There is no poet, no philosopher, no artist. He’s a player and I’m his newest toy.

Genre: New Adult Romance

BY NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR HM WARD

Money. Power. Sex.

The trifecta every man strives for and very few attain. I had these things and walked away from the endless stream of women, from the family fortune, from everything.

The thing is, I feel those old ways pulling me back, and if Sidney is part of my life now she has to know. Not knowing could destroy us both.

The truth won’t set me free. No matter what my name is, I’ll always be a Ferro. But Sidney has a choice and I won’t steal it from her.
