Need Just A Kiss for your Kindle?

It's the release day for Just A Kiss, the 5th book in the Bradfords series--- Kevin's story!!

I know a lot of readers have been waiting eagerly for the book to be out and I LOVE that!  

Unfortunately, Amazon does not have it up for sale yet :(  Samhain has been working on this, other readers have e-mailed Amazon about it... but it just isn't working as quickly as we'd all like.

But Kindle users-- don't despair!  There is an alternative!  As an addicted Kindle user myself I know how fantastic it is to literally click two buttons and have a new book.  Trust me, I'm with you.  But I want to assure you that the alternative only takes a *few* more clicks than that. 

The Samhain store offers ALL e-formats on all their books (along with 30% off on new releases!) so you CAN get the book for your Kindle from Samhain and not have to worry about when Amazon decides to get things ironed out.

I'm going to put the steps here.  Trust me, it's not as intimidating as it looks-- if I can do it, anyone can do it.  No, seriously.

Here we go:

How to download books from Samhain to your Kindle!

1.       Go to the Samhain store:
2.       Find the book you want (search by title, author or just browse).  For instance, Just A Kiss, Erin Nicholas J

3.       Click on the book, go to buy and go through those steps.

4.       Once you’ve bought the book, it will be on your Bookshelf.  You’ll find the Bookshelf in the right hand column under My Stuff.

5.       Find the book you want to download on the list on your Bookshelf.  Use the drop down menu next to the book to choose the format you want (for Kindle you want Mobipocket/Kindle).

6.       Choose download.

7.       Choose Save File.  If given a choice, choose a place where it’s easy to find.  If not given a choice, check under “downloads” on your computer  (check in the left hand column).

8.       Now  turn your Kindle on and connect it to your computer with a USB cord.

9.       Select the Book.mobi file from wherever it’s saved on your computer (example JustAKiss.mobi)

10.   Drag it over to the Kindle icon or "Kindle" on the list on the left hand side on your computer screen.  The computer will tell you when the download is complete.

11.   Now here’s where I was getting stuck:  Double click on the Kindle on your computer (the icon or the word) to open it.  You should see the book listed there (JustAKiss.mobi, for example) and you now need to drag it up to the “documents” file on your Kindle so that you can see it and read it on your device.

12.   Now eject your Kindle from your computer and go to the Home page on your Kindle.  HINT:  if you don't see it, try turning the Kindle off and then on again.

13.   The book should be there now and you can start READING!

Oh… and here’s the Amazon video about it: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_200127470_videos?nodeId=200588130

So yesterday I hosted a fun game on Facebook-- How Well Do You Know the Bradford Boys?-- as a start to getting ready for the release of Book 5-- Just A Kiss-- at the end of this month!

It was a lot of fun posting the questions and the guys' answers and then seeing how well readers could match them up!  (and thanks to KIM for the fantastic idea and 5 of the questions :))

I also posted sneak peeks from the book and some other fun things so if you have a chance go over to my Facebook page and look around. 

But, I promised the players that I would post the "right" answers here after the game ended so they could see how they did and maybe get to know the guys a little better.  Now, there were several questions where more than one of the guy could have given the same answer so don't feel bad! :)  Everyone's a winner when it comes to the guys! 

1    Question #1:

      The Hangover  SAM
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off  DOOLEY
The Replacements  KEVIN

Question #2:
If you could change the title of your story, what would it be?

Another One Bites the Dust SAM
Kahlua and Cream DOOLEY
Cutting Loose  BEN
Saints and Sinners KEVIN
Sam Can Just Kiss My Ass MAC
Question #3:
What is the title of the last magazine you read/ purchased?

The New England Journal of Medicine  BEN

Question #4:
If you were sent to a deserted island, what one “item” would you take with you?

A notebook and pen—to journal and write letters, things like that  BEN
Food. Lots of it. KEVIN
Naked pictures of my wife.  MAC
Naked pictures of my wife… I can’t say that again? Come on! Fine, puzzles—crosswords and stuff I guess  SAM
If there’s no naked pictures then… a book. What? Okay, specifically, a Lori Foster book (there are naked people doing things in those) DOOLEY
Question #5:
If “Tease” were to name a product after you, what would it be?

Flavored body butter  SAM
A line of sexy footwear called “Make ‘Em Beg”  BEN
Super extra large magnum condoms  MAC
A book of sexual positions. No wait, a video. And I’d call it “Every Which Way”.  DOOLEY
Naughty costumes—like a sexy angel, or a waitress, a cheerleader, a sexy female referee… you know. KEVIN

Question #6:
Favorite sexual position

Okay, so all the guys would probably agree with ALL of those answers :)
Any and all, any time, any place  MAC
Missionary—can’t go wrong with the tried and true KEVIN
Any that put her in charge ;)  SAM
Any that put *me* in charge—she needs some handcuffs and a blindfold once in awhile to remind her she doesn’t have to be the boss all the time. BEN
On Mondays I like standing up, Tuesdays I like her on all fours, Wednesday I like the cowgirl… DOOLEY

Question #7
Name one pet peeve about your wife
: (To Jessica, Dani, Sara, Morgan and Eve, they all agreed that they also love these things about you all!!)

She’s got *way* more energy than I do.   MAC
She can do anything, she never needs my help. Well, not never but…  SAM
She’s brutally honest. Whether you want her to be or not. KEVIN
She can charm me into doing something I don’t want to do before I even know what hit me.  DOOLEY
She worries about everyone else and put them all first, ahead of herself all the time. BEN
Question # 8
Favorite type of donut?

Jelly. KEVIN
Chocolate frosted with sprinkles. DOOLEY
Glazed. BEN
Cream filled long johns. MAC
Donut holes—lots of variety. SAM
Question #9
If you had to pick another occupation, what would it be?

I’d be a doctor, probably.  SAM
I’d own a chain of coffee shops.  BEN
I know it seems obvious, but being a high school football coach would be cool. KEVIN
I’d be a fireman, or a cop. MAC
I know what I wouldn’t do… I wouldn’t be in the hotel business. I’d like to win the lottery for a living, actually. DOOLEY
Question #10
What is the sappiest/most romantic thing you ever gave or did for your wife?

Uh, me. What—why doesn’t that count? Okay, I gave her one of my old t-shirts and a set of ponytail holders one time to remind her that I like her just as much without all the glitz. DOOLEY

I rebuilt and painted an old trunk for her to keep old pictures and scrapbooks and stuff in. The fact that I took a class on how to do that at the local hardware store got to her as much as the trunk did.  SAM

I got Sully—the beat up old blue pickup that she fell in love with—rebuilt so he’ll now run for years. I know she’s sentimental about that old junker, but I don’t get it. Still, I love making her cry because I’ve been sweet. MAC

A weekend at a fancy resort all by herself—no kids, no brothers and sisters and people calling and texting and needing her all the time. Of course, she only stayed one night and couldn’t stand the quiet and being alone, but it’s the thought that counts.  BEN

I took her to a big alumni reunion for the University of Nebraska football team and she got to meet a bunch players and go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the football stadium. She does actually know a lot about football, especially during my college days. KEVIN
Hope you had some fun with this!
Mark your calendars for October 30th-- 
Just A Kiss release day!!
or pre-order it here!  

She’s unforgettable… and that’s exactly what got him into trouble the first time. 


The Bradfords, Book 5

As a paramedic in the busiest ER in the city, Kevin Campbell knows there’s no such thing as a typical night—but this one definitely has them all beat.

His dad’s been stabbed with a fork, his mom’s been in a fight, and it’s all because of a younger half-brother he never knew existed. And if that’s not enough, everyone seems to agree that Kevin should take the boy in for the six months during his mom’s rehab. Oh, and the annulment he thought he got fourteen years ago? Never went through.

It’s really too bad he gave up drinking and swearing.

Eve Donnelly is shocked to see Kevin again, but not surprised they’re still married. After all, she was the one who refused to sign the annulment papers. Now that she’s got Kevin back in her life, nothing else matters. Not even her past fourteen less-than-virtuous years. In fact, the truth about her life without Kevin isn’t even worth bringing up. She hopes.

When Eve offers to help Kevin with his younger brother, a sweet, devout preacher’s daughter seems like an answered prayer. Besides, things can’t get more complicated. Can they?

Warning: Contains a bad boy gone good, a good girl who knows all about being bad, and lots of hot, sweet, so-this-is-how-married-couples-do-it sex.
