Hey My Peepers!

I have assembled some of my most Frequently Asked Questions below. If you have a question that doesn’t appear below feel free to email me via my Contact Form.

Hope this helps!

  1. Hi! I would like to be added to your newsletter/be contacted about releases.
    • Thanks for your interest! You can sign up for my newsletters here. They are usually sent out once a month and do include new release information.
  2. Hey Alanea, when will you be putting out the next Arkadia book?
    • For my latest update(s) regarding Arkadia please click here.
  3. Are your books available on Nook from Canada?
    • At this time Nook only sells to the UK and the US.
  4. I noticed in the past you sold your books on aRE and Smashwords, but they are no longer there. Will they be available there in the future?
    • Unfortunately no, there weren’t enough sales there to keep them as a distributor.
  5. I noticed that sometimes your books are available for Pre-order on Amazon, Kobo and iTunes but not through Nook, is this something you will be offering the future? Also I have noticed that your Nook releases are usually a couple days behind Amazon, why?
    • Great question! Unfortunately Nook does not offer the Pre-Order feature at this time, they said they are looking into adding this in the future. Also, because there is no option to set up a Pre-Order where I know the book will release at midnight, I have to upload and make it live, this means it will be uploaded no earlier than Release day. Sometimes Nook is quick to process, sometimes they aren’t, I have no control over that, they advise it can take between 24-72 hours.
  6. How many books will there be in the Bewitched and Bewildered series?
    • I don’t have a set number at the present moment. I will try to write as many as the over ARC will allow without watering down the plot line. Tentatively speaking I am estimating a 20 book series.
  7. Where can I find more information about your upcoming books?
    • All upcoming series information can be found here.
    • All information about Works in Progress can be found here.
  8. When will the next book come out?
    • Keep an eye on my Facebook Author page or my website for an
  9. When will the audiobooks be coming out for the *insert series* series?
    • I am working with the narrator to get all the books out on
      audio, however, I do not have a schedule for their release.
      Again I will announce any releases on my Facebook Author page and on my website.
  10. Can you tell us something about things happening in the series?
    • If it is clarification of something that has already happened
      and it does not affect the future timeline I am happy to help
      out. If it is something that give away a plot point I will not
      answer the question 🙂 It is best to message the Facebook author page or contact
      me via my website.
  11. When will the book be available for pre-order on Barnes & Noble?
    • Nook does not allow pre-orders so the book will be available as close
      to release day as possible. Once I upload it to them it is up to Barnes &
      Noble to ensure that it goes live in a timely manner.
  12. When will the book be available in print?
    • I work hard to have the books available in print very soon after the
      release date. However, if I decide to go through an additional round of
      edits before sending it to the formatters it can take longer. I will always
      announce the availability on my Facebook author page. Each book seller
      should show a print option if it can be ordered in print.
  13. Will you be writing a book about **insert character name here**?
    • I hope I will be able to get around to all the secondary characters, but there’s no guarantee that I will include the one you are hoping for. I will write the characters as they come to me.
  14. Will you write a story about **insert story idea here**?
    • If the story line I am writing happens to encompass a specific idea I will write it. Writing something in, just to have it there, isn’t my style. 🙂
  15. Will there be a cross over series between the series(s) you’ve written?
    • All of the series I write happen in different worlds with different parameters, making cross overs nearly impossible.
  16. When will **insert character’s name here’s** baby be born?
    • When their 9 months are up within the series timeline.
  17.  What happened to **insert character name here**?
    • If a certain character isn’t mentioned in a book, that doesn’t mean that they are forgotten. With so many characters in the series, to keep things easy to read, I will only mention them if they appear in a scene to move the story forward.
