FINALLY!!  After lots of thought, and a ton of ridiculous waiting for Amazon to get their head out of their asses, I’m finally able to bring you the cover re-reveal for Long Live the King!!  Check this baby out!

Oh I just love it so much!!  I have to give big, huge, props to my designer, Robin, for being so incredibly, insanely talented.  All I have to do is show her a pic and mention my vision, and she brings the whole thing to life in no time at all.  It’s been a great 3 and a half years working with her, and I wouldn’t use another cover designer if my life depended on it.  Fuck it, kill me, but I’m using Robin!

So I decided to redo the cover for LLTK after l took a look at the cover of Kingpin, and kept thinking about how much more I liked that cover over the LLTK cover.  Then I remembered how I did something I knew I didn’t want to do originally.  I always wanted the same model for the two covers, but I went against my gut, and that’s a no-no.  So, I took it back to where it needed to go, and this book now has the type of cover the story needs.

This series is soooooo good!  It’s the best thing I’ve published so far, and my favorite published book with my favorite published characters (notice I keep saying “published”? New awesomeness is on the way.  Solomon says Hi, by the way :)).  So to commemorate the release of the new cover, I’m putting both books in the series on sale for 99¢!  So head on over to Amazon, B&N, iBooks, or Kobo, and one-click Kingpin and Long Live the King right now!!  Dominic and Alananah’s story is amazing, and you can get it now on sale!!  Go one-click!

WS in 2017

Well, 2016 is coming to a close and it was a big year.  Tons and tons of books came out that did really well and grabbed a lot of peoples attention, and my book, Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance), was one of those big books of 2016. 13180926_1736689803241828_1586459477_n

I was so proud to see it do well and finally get me some attention that I’ve been hoping for for a long time. So I just want to say Thank You to all of my fans for making that book do as well as it did.

But now we are moving onto 2017, and I am excited just like people usually are at the end of the year when they get their New Year’s resolutions together. For me and my family, it’s going to be a big year for us anyway, because we are finally moving away from the island of Guam and officially going back to the United States!  We don’t know where in the states we’re going to live, but we do know that we are going back to the states, and that means book signings and being able to communicate on social media at a time that isn’t 2 o’clock in the morning for me and my wife!  This move is going to be great for us from a business standpoint, so now that we know that it’s official and we have no other option, I am excited about it and can’t wait to see how it positively affects what we’re doing in the book world. We have three book signings already locked in for 2017: Vegas in August, Phoenix in September, Manchester in November, which we are beyond excited about!  So we can’t wait to get out there and see our fans, and give autographs, and do meet & greets and just have a great time being published authors in this amazing indie community.

The books that I have planned to publish in 2017 are stories that I am so excited to write!  All of them are what I like to call Alpha Romantic Suspense, where it’s romantic suspense but the lead male character is an alpha bad ass who doesn’t take any shit and is ride or die for his woman like no other!  I learned a lot from the three books I published in 2016, and I plan on using everything that I learned this year to make every book that I publish next year my best books yet, starting with Madman (A Wilde King Novel).

2017 will be a big year for the #AuthorPowerCouple!  Writing and game-planning has already begun. 2017 is curtains up for me, personally. Enjoy the show!

Long Live the King is Live–And Here I/We Come!

First things first… My newest baby, Long Live the King (An Italian Mafia Romance Duet #2) is LIVE!!!!  The moment has finally arrived, and my book is on shelves everywhere on the I-net, waiting for you to download it and indulge!  This book was such a long time coming, and I’m so proud to see it completed and out there for the world to read.  It took a lot out of me, finishing this book, and that’s why I appreciate and love it so much!!

live

There isn’t anything that I can say about this book that I haven’t already said, so I’ll just post this here and hope that after months of promotion and trying to hype this up, you’ll believe me when I tell you that this book is the best thing I have ever written, and it will blow you away.  The rest is up to you.  This is an epic conclusion, and I hope you’ll take a chance on it for 99¢.

Now, on to the next part of this blog post–Here I/We Come!!

I’ve been doing this for three years now, and it has been an incredible journey, and I’m proud of what I’ve been able to accomplish in this short time with the 8 books I have on the shelf.  However, it’s time for more.  I’m ambitious, and I want to be great.  It’s really as simple as that.  I want more and more people to read my books and fall in love with these stories that I fall in love with when I think of them.  I want the world to love my characters just as much as I do.  So, here I/We come.

My wife, bestselling author Isabel Lucero, and I, have been being pretty quiet about ourselves since we started this.  We’ve sat back and watched as other books and other authors have blown up and gone on to be big deals.  We’ve watched other male authors come and go and form clicks to join forces and fans, and we’ve been in the shadows, biding our time, waiting for it to be our turn.  Well, waiting for it to be our turn has only gotten us so far, and it’s obvious that it won’t take us to where we want to go.  So, we’re about to be everywhere.  We’re about to be in you faces nonstop!  I’m totally not kidding.  Before this post, I’ve already done 3 live stream videos where I have given away books to anybody who PM’s me, and I’ve got another book group takeover first thing tomorrow morning.  We’re going to plaster our mugs all over the internet so that people can get to know us and tell other people about us.  We are a married couple who writes books!  Both of us are bestselling authors!  We have what nobody else does, and we haven’t shown ourselves to the world.  Well this is it.  Those days are OVER.  So, I plan on being everywhere all the damn time.  It’s gonna be me and my baby, forming our own little click, and taking over the world.  We are the new Joker and Harley Quinn.  The world is ours, and we want you to know who we are.  So, if after all this time, you still feel like you don’t know who I am or who she is, and you’re not sure about buying our books for whatever reason, you’re about to get to know us.

I’m the Joker, she’s my Harley Quinn, and we’re about to take over the world.  Ready or not.  Here we come!!

Pushing Book 1 to Sell Book 2

Ladies & gentlemen, we are finally under a month away from the release of Long Live the King!!  I’m in full promo mode and I am sooooo excited for this book to hit your kindle!!  I went through so much to bring this story and these characters to the perfect conclusion, and in less than thirty days, you’ll finally get to see how it all ends.

However, there are new nerves that come with this release.  While I’m beyond excited about dropping this book, there’s something that has me worried.  LLTK is a book 2, and that is cause for concern.  Historically, book 2 never sells like book 1.  Naturally, some of the people who read book 1 don’t bother to read book 2 because they don’t like the first one.  Also, blogs who didn’t read book 1 aren’t jumping through the roof to promote book 2.  Lastly, people are skeptical about sequels, especially if the first one was good.  So, I know LLTK has a tough road ahead, but the people who read it will be blown away, and hopefully that gets them talking.  I wrote this book to knock people’s socks off, and I expect nothing less.

But, in order for me to hype the world up about book 2, I need to remind them about book 1 (or introduce them to), Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance).

13180926_1736689803241828_1586459477_n

If you haven’t met Dominic Collazo, now is the time to do it.  Kingpin is on sale for only 99¢, and will stay on sale until mid-September when LLTK and Kingpin both go to full price.  So, now’s the time to dive into this insane world of La Cosa Nostra and get to know Dominic, Alannah, and their second-chance romance.  These two meet as 11 year-olds and spend time together before being pulled apart by life, only to be brought back together in the middle of a street war.  Alannah has a lot to deal with and a lot to learn about the grown-up edition of Dominic Collazo, and it’s gonna take everything she’s got to stay afloat.

Before I wrote LLTK, Kingpin was my favorite of all my books.  Bringing Dominic to life in Kingpin was so fun and he quickly became my favorite character.  So if you haven’t read Kingpin, it’s about that time!  Go one-click Kingpin right this second, because it’s gonna cost you less than a dollar!  And if you already have read Kingpin, now’s the time to read it again and remind yourself of how insanely badass Dominic is, because he’s about to come back and take your world on a roller coaster ride.  He’s about to remind you all why book 1 was so big, and why you fell in love with him in the first place.  So Kingpin is here to serve as a reminder before Long Live the King explodes onto the scene.

Go one-click Kingpin now for only 99¢, and brace yourself, because the epic conclusion, Long Live the King, is coming September 5th.

Buckle up!

Until Next Week..

Think Again and The Weekend!

So, if you didn’t already know, I’m in the military, and with the 4th of July rolling up on Monday, it’s a day to celebrate our independence and a motherfucking 4-day weekend!!  Whoo-hooo for freedom and days off from work!!

So, with all the awesomeness coming up, there’s lots to celebrate, and the first thing I want to celebrate is a new book on the shelves!  This lady I know, named Isabel Lucero, just released a book this past Monday.  This ridiculously awesome book is called Think Again, and if you haven’t already one-clicked, you need to go ahead and get on that ASAP.

13551008_1755835967993878_986043092_n  Of course, I’ve already read this book, and I’m telling you, it is phenomenal, and I’m not just being biased because the author sleeps next to me every night.  I mean it when I say it, this book is amazing, and it’s on sale for only 99 freakin’ cents!  So, do me a favor and go one-click Think Again right now, and then go tell your friends to one-click it, so everybody can enjoy this awesomeness.

And while we’re on the topic, I just want to say a huge congratulations to my beautiful wife, bestselling author Isabel Lucero.  Congratulations on your 7th book release!!  I’m so fucking proud of you for sticking with this book.  I know this one was hard, but you stuck with it and wrote what you wanted to write, which everyone knows is a big deal to me these days.  You went for it and made it happen, and I’m glad you saw it through.  Congratulations, baby.  I love you!

13552586_1755835964660545_1993333819_n

 

So, now that the 4-day weekend is rolling in, you’re probably wondering what I plan on doing.  Well, my plan is to do four things: WRITE, SLEEP, READ, and WRITE SOME MORE!!  I have crossed the midway threshold on Long Live the King, and I have my parents coming to visit on July 13th, so I really want to finish writing before they get here.  It’d be awesome to start hitting up beta readers in the middle of the month and go into editing.  Then ARCs can go out in the beginning of August!!  That would be fucking awesome, so I know I have to sit my ass in the chair in my office and get to work every day.  So, that’s my plan.  Kingpin is still selling its ass off, which just motivates me even more to make sure Long Live the King is even better than its predecessor.  I promise I won’t let you down!  Let’s get ready to have a blast!!

So, what are your plans to celebrate freedom and the long weekend?

Liberty4th-of-july1

 

Until Next Week…

The Gate is Wide Open – Following Kingpin

When I was writing Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance Duet #1), I knew it was going to change everything.  I could feel it when I was typing the words, when the phrases flowed out like water after the dam breaks.  I knew it when I felt more motivated and excited to promote and advertise for Kingpin, and I felt it in my gut when people kept saying they were just as hyped up about the release as I was.  Then, on May 2nd, it happened.  The change I had been waiting for finally came.  Kingpin quickly became my bestselling book to date, an international bestseller, and I was suddenly a somebody on the cusp of becoming a bigger somebody in this game.  The reviews poured in and people started talking about me, wondering if I was a man or a woman and all kinds of other shit.  Just like that, everything changed.  WS Greer came to life.

Now, here we are, a month and a half after Kingpin’s release, and it feels like everything I did before May 2nd was just a dream.  I don’t think about any of this stuff the same way now.  It’s like I got a big, fat, boost of confidence in myself, and the freakin’ flood gates are wide open.  I’m currently in the middle of writing Long Live the King (An Italian Mafia Romance Duet #2), and I feel like a man possessed (yes, I am a man).  I feel more motivated than ever to do this my way, because I know that doing it my way is the only way that makes sense for me.  It might not work for anybody else, but it only has to work for me.  When I write for LLtK (Long Live the King), it’s like I go into a different zone.  I’m like a damn genius with words, metaphors, and similes.  I edit like nobody’s business, and my imagination is live and vivid like I’m watching it in my living room on my 65″ LED TV.  I hate that I wasted so much time trying to be something I’m not, but now that I’m doing this my way and for myself, it’s on like never before.  I’m a mission.  I’m gonna be the hottest male author in the indie game, and what’s more, I’m gonna do it without selling myself out and writing “what’s hot.”  I’m gonna do it by writing exactly what I want, and it’s gonna blow your minds, because when I’m doing it for me, I’m actually really good at this shit (forgive me for the brief moment of tooting my own horn)  Mark my words.  Kingpin was just the beginning.

So before I go, here’s my promise to you.  If you loved Kingpin, that’s awesome, and I thank you for taking a chance with me and eagerly awaiting what I have coming next to see if I can sustain this momentum—to see if I’m really as good as Kingpin made it look like I am.  Well, I promise you, I’m that good (horn tooting again, sorry), and Long Live the King is going to BLOW YOU AWAY.  You’ve never read a mafia romance like this.  And I can’t wait to read your reviews and messages when you finish it and have the most insane book hangover you’ve ever experienced.  The flood gates are wide open, and I’m gonna live up to the tagline in my new logo.  Just you wait and see.

Allow Me To Re-Reintroduce Myself…

Well, it’s been a minute.  I haven’t dropped anything on my beloved blog in so long, I forgot I had it.  Well, the day of pulling my head out of my ass has arrived.  I’ve waited a while to do this, and even now the timing is a bit off because I’m not at home with my family, but I have a book due to hit shelves in less than a month, so there’s no more time to eff around.

So, here it is.  I’ve been down this road before.  I tend to hold things in until they build and explode, then I go off on some long rant about whatever, filled with points and alternate points, just in case someone has a counterpoint.  I get long-winded and emotional and usually regret going there.  I’m being smarter about it this time.  This time, I’m going to present you with my dilemma, and then I’m going to tell you what’s actually important.  Let’s begin.  Allow me to re-reintroduce myself…

My name is WS Greer.  I’m a bestselling author of suspense/romance (or just romantic suspense, if that’s what you call it), and I serve as an active duty member of the USAF.  I’m currently living in Guam with my family until the middle of 2017 when I’ll move back to the states and start giving 100% to books and building #TheWSBrand.  Because of my career in the Air Force, writing books is hard as f**k.  I have almost no time to get it done, but I love it, and I’m proud of it, so I make time for it.  At this exact moment, on April 6 2016, I’m sitting in a sh**ty chair in a hotel in Okinawa, Japan.  I’ve been here since March 7th, my back hurts like fu**, and I’m still over a week away from seeing my family again.  It fu**ing sucks.  Plus, while I’m over here attending a kind of leadership school for the Air Force, I have a book that’s due to drop on May 2nd.

12696159_10208537029934055_1812844133_n

Awesome fu**ing cover, isn’t it?  I know!  My cover designer, Robin, doesn’t fu*k around.  Anyway, so I’m stuck over here in Okinawa, busy with all this school crap, and I have a book ready to hit shelves in less than a month.  Ugh.  I have no idea how I’m gonna sell this thing. That’s my dilemma.  What the fu*k do I do to get people to buy this book, when I can’t even stay up late enough to post at a time that people in America will see it?  I don’t have an answer to that.  The time difference is killing it, I’m telling you.  So, that’s the problem, and I don’t really have a solution, so here’s what I’m gonna do (this is the important part)…

I’m gonna tell you to get used to me.  I’ve been doing this book thing since 2013, when Frozen Secrets dropped and changed my life.  I’ve got 6 books on the shelf (until May 2nd, when Kingpin takes over the whole world!), and I’ve been on a bestseller’s list 4 times.  Through all that, I’ve done my absolute best to be humble and sort of quiet.  I’ve always told myself: don’t be too brash or offensive, don’t risk scaring away the fans, write what you think will sell, don’t come off as cocky… and a bunch of other sh*t I’ve seen many authors doing on a very regular basis.  Well, it’s over, ladies and gentlemen.  I don’t fu*king care anymore.  So, get used to seeing me, and I’m gonna say the sh*t I feel like saying, because if others can be themselves and sell a ton of books, why can’t I?  So fu*k it.  Wanna know the first thing I’ve been dying to say?

Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance) is the by far the best fu*king book I’ve ever written. I mean, it’s not even close.  To me, this is what Claiming Carter should’ve been, which is kind of funny because Claiming Carter is my best selling book to date.  Kingpin is my baby, and you wanna know why it’s so good?  Here’s the answer… because I didn’t write it for you!  I wrote it for me!  I wrote what the eff I wanted to write, and developed my characters the way I wanted to, and I didn’t care if I did something that I thought you might not like.  In fact, I didn’t think about you at all, and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.  I can’t please all the different kinds of book fans out there, so I’m not gonna try.  The early reviews for Kingpin have been beyond anything I expected, and it has not skipped a beat!  So, I’ve gotta do whatever I can to get this thing in people’s hands.

Here’s my pitch…

Even if you’re not a fan of WS Greer, you need to get Kingpin.  Because by the time you finish this book, I guarantee you’ll be a fan.  That’s right!  GUARANTEE!!  Big words, huh?!!?  That’s how confident I am in this story and these characters.

I’ve done it again… ranting like a fu*king crazy person.  Sorry, I do that.

Okay, I’m gonna wrap it up now.  But, like I said, GET USED TO ME.  All the fu*ks are out the window, people, and I’m just doing me now.  The WS brand is what I’m all about.  I’m giving you me from here on out.  Take it or leave it… well, don’t LEAVE IT with this book because I poured my heart into this baby and it’s worth it.  Buy Kingpin on May 2nd!!  I GUARANTEE you won’t regret it!!

Until next week…
