Ferro, Fan Fiction, and Kindle Worlds!

avery.jpgI discoveredfan fiction after I released my Demon Kissed series. There were people that loved the world so much that they wanted to contribute to it! Sometimes they’d bring their own characters to life in it, and sometimes they’d play with the characters that I created. That’s totally awesome. And, as a writer, really weird. Those are my characters!  And when other people play with them, it’s like they’ve rented a condo in some small part of my brain — and it can be crowded enough in here at times.  :o)

But, fan fiction has been around forever! The problem has always been, what do writers do with those stories after they write them? No matter how great their stories are, they can’t distribute them – after all, it isn’t entirely their story (remember, they’re borrowing space in my brain, so there are usually copyright issues.) So, some great stuff has ended up locked away on somebody’s hard drive, or tucked away in some dark corner of the internet.

Kindle Worlds is a great solution! I’m inviting the awesome Ferro fan fiction writers that are out there to share their stuff with the world. I’m cool with it! Will Ferro fans want to read it? I have no idea. Like anything creative, there’s going to be stuff that misses the mark. But, there will also be some incredible stuff that never would have seen the light of day without Kindle Worlds. And even I want to read that stuff!

I’m planning on writing for a long time to come. So, fans aren’t in trouble of running out of HM Ward books or Ferro hotness.  This move just brings out a lot of great stories that were being written anyway and lets everyone have a chance to decide if they’re worth reading.

If you caught my announcement earlier in the month, about HM Ward Press, you already know that I think some of my fans are amazing writers. Enough so that I’m writing some (stand-alone) novels with them and putting both our names on the cover. The talent is out there – and a lot of readers are always looking for great books. This is really exciting and a new step that hasn’t been taken before, and the cool part is that it allows new writers to explore parts of the Ferro story that I’ll never have time to write. For the love of all things Ferro, let’s see what we can do! Head over and check it out.

Blackmail. Sex. Ferro

An engagement is the farthest thing from my mind, but as Neil holds up the ring I glance around and notice someone is missing. Maggie. The man had the audacity to invite everyone else except my best friend. Where is she? When I go to find out, I don’t like what I discover.

Once, I’d thought I was different from the Ferros and the Campone, but when it comes down to it–I’m exactly the same.

Genre: New Adult Romance
This story unfolds over 5 volumes approx. 125 pages each.



(B&N & paperback will appear shortly)

(This section is from Sean’s point of view)

“When I blink, I feel Avery beneath my body, but my ghosts won’t release me. I choke and realize the room is silent—like before. Images from that night long ago continue to bombard me, flashing in and out of my mind, clouding the present with the past.”

This is the next book that will be out, so it’s coming really soon! I know tons of you have been waiting. The serials release once a month. All other series have 5 books total, expect for this one. We have fans asking for an engagement, wedding, and baby Ferro. Plus you’ll notice some of the other books tangling in and out (DAMAGED, STRIPPED, PROPOSITION, TRYSTAN SCOTT, etc).

And for the first time ever – there is an entire chapter from Sean’s point of view. Yes, you’ll get inside that beautifully disturbed man’s head! I can’t wait to share it with you! Eeeeep!!!!

THE PROPOSITION VOL. 1: THE FERRO FAMILY was released today. This is the story of Bryan Ferro (Sean, Peter, & Jon’s cousin). You might remember him from STRIPPED. Sean also balks about him now and again.


By NEW YORK TIMES Bestselling Author H.M. Ward

Blackmail. Sex. Ferro.

His dark hair, bright eyes, and cocky grin look just the way I remembered. The last time I saw Bryan’s Ferro’s beautiful body, he was naked and shimmering with sweat. This time he’s wearing a tux and a wicked smirk that makes my heart beat too fast. It’s been so long since I’ve seen him, the moment feels supercharged.

But, the words that fall out of his mouth aren’t what I expect and shock me to the core. They aren’t light and pleasant, like ex-lovers who decided to part ways. His tone is clipped, and if his jaw locked any tighter, it would crack. He doesn’t care about my personal life, my recent loss, or my boyfriend.

Bryan makes his intentions clear–if I don’t sleep with him, he’ll ruin me.”

Genre: New Adult Romance
This story unfolds over five volumes approx. 125 pages each.

What readers are saying:

“Great story of tragedy, blackmail, and sex!” -Jodi B.

 “Every bit as intoxicating as her others.” -F. Griffith

“Watch out Sean, your cousin is giving you a run for your money in the dark, heartless, sexy alpha male department.” -DPM

FYI: My serial novellas typically have 5 books per series unless it becomes fan controlled like THE ARRANGEMENT. SECRETS & TRYSTAN SCOTT are complete serials with 5 per series.

Timeline: THE PROPOSITION runs concurrently with STRIPPED. You do not need to read the other Ferro family books to understand this one. Each series is stand alone.

Cover Reveal: THE PROPOSITION (Bryan Ferro)

Here’s something to make your Friday absolutely Ferrolicious! The next bad boy in the Ferro family has his own serials starting in a couple of weeks. You saw a glimpse of Bryan Ferro in STRIPPED. Arrogant, sexy, and powerful, Bryan Ferro is always at the center of trouble.

These will be serials. If you love THE ARRANGEMENT, you’ll love these. Not sure how many volumes there will be at this point. I’m letting it develop organically. I love that about Sean and Avery. There are so many books, and they’ve been through so much, that it feels like they’re real–like I know them. It’s because of the story format. Serials are great for people who like short reads and want something to read between novels.

Speaking of which, the next three major novel titles have been announced. BROKEN PROMISES (Trystan Scott), STRIPPED 2 (Jon Ferro), and SECRETS & LIES (Ferro) are novels that will take us into early 2014.

More hotness coming your way. Keep an eye out for teasers and more fun Ferro stuff. And if you haven’t done it already, sing the petition to get a Ferro movie or TV show. :)

Have an awesome weekend!!!
