IMPORTANT Sex Therapy News + a #Giveaway

FINALLY!

It’s release day, which means I get to share Chase Walker with the world at last.

However, anyone who has been following the lead up to the release of Sex Therapist will be noticing some changes as of today – and with good reason.

Right before the weekend, I realised that Sex Therapy was completely unsearchable on Amazon. For a new release, this is absolutely no blooming use to me as its author.

I have spent the entire weekend emailing with Amazon about the why and what can be done about it, and each time I have received an addition reason on top of the last ones they threw at me. On Saturday evening, I finally managed to pinpoint it down to the fact that my cover was too explicit, my title had the word ‘sex’ in it, and when combined with the book’s adult content, they couldn’t possibly allow it to show up in a ‘general search’. I did argue that typing ‘sex therapy: episode one j.a. belfield’ into their search bar didn’t really classify as a ‘general search as it was pretty specific – nor did using the book’s ASIN (ID number) as a search trigger, but both of those in the search bar continuously bought up ‘0 results’. By the responses I kept getting from Amazon staff, I’m unsure if they just couldn’t quite understand what I was trying to say, or if they were skirting answering me.

Either way, it was the weekend prior to the release of a pre-order, and according to Amazon’s pre-order rules, I couldn’t update any of the book’s details or files so close to release, so I was stuck.

However, I had, throughout Saturday, come to terms with the fact that I would have to change both the cover AND title of Sex Therapy if I wanted it to ever be seen/found, etc.

I had ONE DAY to sort this out. And, again, due to the above-mentioned Amazon rules regarding pre-orders, I couldn’t actually make any of these changes before it’s actual release date.

O_o

I also have a 3 day book blast booked with Enchanting Journey, and every single blogger had been sent out the ‘Sex Therapy’ title details and the ‘Sex Therapy’ cover – which is a complication I admit.

Despite this, because I want my book to be found, I decided to go ahead and make the changes.

So, if you see some awesome bloggers shouting out about Sex Therapy, don’t stress it – they’re doing what they’ve been asked.

And if you see others shouting out about ‘The Therapist’ … again, don’t stress it, because THE THERAPIST is Sex Therapy’s new (last-minute) name.

And below, is its new cover. ☺☺☺

the-therapist_1From International Bestselling author J.A. Belfield comes an intriguing erotic romance serial …

Episode One: Through self-imposed rules and a learned composure, Chase Walker takes a married couple on their first steps into bedroom communication. The same stance he takes with every client on his list. That is, until his newest client walks in and gives a whole new meaning to a hard day at the office. With a face full of innocence and a beauty she seems unaware of, Abi O’Shay might just be the first person to crack his professional façade.

 

 

Series Synopsis:

Chase Walker: Founder of C.W. Consult. Sex therapist extraordinaire.

And, without question, always in control.

After years of schooling his emotions, Chase takes pride in his self-composure and firm lack of commitment. It takes only one, fresh-faced redhead in need of his services for all of that to fall to pieces.

Abigail O’Shay is everything Chase isn’t. Sweet. Innocent. A virgin.

Chase has never wanted to defile anything more.

Except, if that whole therapist-client barrier isn’t enough of an issue, Chase’s own demons are only too happy to cock-block all the sinful fantasies treatments he has in mind for his latest client.

Sex Therapy has a Release Date!

Good news, guys! Sex Therapy has its release date.

Ripley

They call me RIP.
I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something I’d kill for.
I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered.
I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.

Dylan

For months, I’ve watched him.
I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all.
It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left to survive the ripple effect.

*This is an erotic suspense/erotic romance not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to graphic violence and sex.

Yeah, you might wanna add this one to your calendars, too. 😉

Read an Excerpt of Sex Therapy

Yup, yup, today I’ll be sharing a little of Sex Therapy with y’all, and because this is my regular ole blog, I figured it best to keep it clean, sooooo …

I picked out the first 500 words. To introduce you to Chase Walker. To show you the inside of his clinic. And to hopefully leave you intrigued and wanting to read more.

Here you go:

Letting his body sink back in his chair, Chase Walker took a moment’s rest. When he’d first set himself up as a therapist almost three years earlier, he’d no idea how quickly the idea would take off. No fucking idea how many would flock to him for his kind of advice and assistance. He could’ve suggested splurging on a penthouse office on the outskirts of the busiest city in the UK had helped boost his numbers, but his clients travelled however far they needed to for his services, and he knew damned well that his practice’s top-level discretion took the trophy for that.

He slid out a drawer on his walnut desk and withdrew a bottle of water. While he’d have loved a stiff drink before his next clients arrived, he doubted they’d appreciate the smell of whiskey on his breath. The liquid glugged when he tipped the bottle back and took a swallow before recapping the drink. Tapping the plastic against his knee, he let his head sink back, closed his eyes, took deep breaths. His usual routine for preparing for an appointment such as the one he suspected was on its way.

Each inhalation sucked in rich woody perfumes and expensive polish—scents that spoke of money. And so they should. Behind him, the room-wide windows graced the eyes with an almost bird’s-eye view of the Thames, and around him, teak panelled the entire bottom third of the walls and boarded the floor. Even the elegant chaise that passed as a visitor seat had cost a pretty penny from a dealer he’d once been hired by.

The intercom buzzed on his desk, and he lifted his lids, revealing all of his well-earned belongings. After tucking the water back inside his desk, he pressed a small camouflaged button and answered, “Yes?”

“Your four o’clock is ready for you, Mr Walker.”

“Thank you, Samantha.”

Clicking off the connection, he pushed up from his chair, brushing his hands over the front of his crisp trousers as he straightened his legs. Those had cost a bomb, too, but at least the fabric caressed his thighs and hugged him everywhere it should. After checking his shirt front for blotches and straightening his tie, he strode for the door.

Opening it exposed the reception area. The highly-polished desk on the left looked like a piece of art, with the way it curled around the two women sat behind it. They both glanced up, as he stepped out, their lips curved into smiles that spoke of contentment in their work, while their perfectly-plucked eyebrows arched in a knowing expression. They may have reacted the same at his appearance, but in looks, Samantha was day to Raelyn’s night. The innocent persona of blonde hair and blues beside the wickedness of raven darkness surrounding hazelnut eyes that Raelyn often lowlighted with smoky grey kohl.

At the slight lift of Sam’s chin, he followed her gaze to the seating on the opposite side of the room, where a middle-aged couple sat side by side in nothing but the clinic-provided robes and terry-cloth slippers.

“Mr and Mrs Miller—would you like to come through?”

Thanks for stopping by to read. ☺ Clicking the share post options would be hugely appreciated. ♥

I get to share the cover of Sex Therapy – Yay!

In case you didn’t figure out from the post title, this is a COVER REVEAL POST!

Well, today, I get to share the cover for that series. And I’m excited. Excited for the cover. For the blurb. For the STORY! So, I guess I’ll just shut up and show you.
