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!!

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.

Homeward Bound!!

Kingpin_FBcover (DATED)

9:40pm here in Okinawa, Japan, and I’m still just over 2 days away from heading home, but it’s all good because the next time I write in this blog, I’ll be doing it from the comfort of my own couch… or maybe I’ll do it in my office… or maybe in my bed with a cup of Sprite and Crown Apple next to me… who effing knows?!?!  All I know is that I’m gonna be at home, in my house with my fine ass wife next to me!!!

It’s been 6 weeks, people.  6 weeks since I’ve been in the comfort of my house, and I’ll tell you, I’m so damn ready to go back.  Living out of a suitcase in a hotel for 6 weeks is not awesome.  I’m actually waiting for my laundry to dry while I write this.  This is the last load I wash before I go home!!  Whoo hooo!!

Anyway, so I’m homeward bound, y’all!!  And when I get home, I’m gonna be off from work for 17 days straight, and all of my energy will be going to getting people amped up and in the know about Kingpin going live on May 2nd.  It’s gonna be full-on promo mode up in here, and I’m gonna need all the help I can get to get the word out.  So, I’m planning on a giveaway or two or three, and I’ve got new teasers set to come out pretty often so you can get just as excited about the release as I am.  I’m planning on giving away ARCs too, so if you’re interested in an ARC of Kingpin, keep your eyes open on social media… better yet, I’ll take it a step further for my fans who follow this blog.  Leave a comment on this post about wanting an ARC of Kingpin, and I’ll hook you up with preferential treatment!  For realisies!!

I just went and got my laundry and folded it all up, now it’s 9:55pm, and it’s time to get Wednesday over and done with so I can get off this island and back to my own island of Guam on Saturday!  So, I’m gonna grab the book I’m currently reading, Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben (my favorite author), and get my ass in the bed.  Homeward Bound, baby!!

Check out the latest teaser for Kingpin (An Italian Mafia Romance), hitting shelves on May 2nd, and preorder your copy on iBooks or Barnes & Noble now!!

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…

My New Book is Now Available!!

It’s official!!  My new book, Defending Her, is now available for purchase, and it’s only $1.99!!!

Sale 1

It has been an unbelievable journey, and it has taken lots of studying, and research, and determination, but the book is finally out and ready to be read by all of you!!

I have an Acknowledgements section on the back of the book, obviously, but I just want to say Thank You one more time to the love of my life, Isabel Lucero.  She’s the only one who really knows what I went through when I was writing this book, and she was the one who was there for me when I was having self-doubt, which still shows its ugly face sometimes.  We ride together in this life, and she has been my backbone for the past 11 years.  I couldn’t breathe without her being mine, and if it wasn’t for her support, there’s a whole lot in my life that wouldn’t be possible.

Out of all the books I have written so far, this one is easily my favorite.  Admittedly, Frozen Secrets will always hold a special place in my heart because it was my first book ever, but Defending Her is my favorite because it includes my best writing, and my most thought out story.  I’ve been excited about this story since June of 2014, and to see it finally being released is a such a huge accomplishment for me, and I’m so happy about it.  I loved watching Jason grow and become his own man in this story, and seeing his confidence take off was awesome.  The more confident Jason became, the more confident I became in the story.  The courtroom scenes are the best scenes I’ve ever written, and are definitely my favorite.

So, all I can do now is hope that the rest of the world enjoys reading the book as much as I enjoyed writing it.  I’ll be having tons of promo related stuff going on for the next month or so, as I try to hit the overall bestsellers list for the first time.  I think this is the story that can do it.  I believe in this story, and I believe in these characters, so my confidence is flying high right now.  Let’s hope for a good one.  This is my breakout book!!  Let’s go!!

Go Pick up Defending Her right now!!!

Male Author Success, And An Announcement

What’s up, everybody?  I hope this past week was awesome for you.  I had a lot going on, as usual, so I have a couple of things I want to talk about.  

First things first.  I have an announcement that I am finally allowed to make.  Most of you already know that I’m married, but I had been trying to keep who I am married to a secret.  My wife didn’t want to tell people we were married because she didn’t want people comparing us to each other, since we write similar genres.  However, after a few months of me talking a lot of shit about it, and both of our fans begging to know who we were married to, she finally gave in.  So, I am proud to publicly announce that I am very happily married to my high school sweetheart, Amazon Bestselling author, Isabel Lucero.  You probably have heard of her new book, Living in Sin, which has been selling like crazy.  It’s an amazing thing to be able to share my passion for writing with the love of my life, and I’m so glad that we can take this journey together publicly as opposed to secretly.  Now, yes it is true, her new book has outsold my new book by a few thousand copies, however, I don’t hate on her for it.  I fully support my wife and I love that she sells the way she does.  Her stories are amazing and I hope that all of you go out and show her and her books some much deserved love, because my baby deserves it.  So, go get it.  ImageNow, on to my next topic, which may be a little controversial.  Now, I can’t say too much because I know that a lot of these male authors that I am referring to, have A LOT of female fans who would basically kill me for talking about their new favorite authors, which is why I won’t be mentioning anyone by name.

Soooo… I had another topic that I was gonna write for this blog post, but after a lot of thought and a lot of talking to my wife, I’ve decided not to post it.  I couldn’t figure out a way to write it without sounding overtly negative or jealous.  It had to do with male indie authors and the mystery that seems to surround them all.  Well, “them all”, excluding me, of course.  Now that me and my beautiful wife have told our fans that we’re married, I no longer have any “secrets.”  Everything about me is public, because I am proud of who I am and proud of my life, and I want you all to see me and know me.  I don’t need you to imagine me as some sexy book boyfriend guy by hiding all details about who I really am.  I am who I am, and I wouldn’t ever hide it.  My name is W.S. Greer.  I am 29 years old, and an active duty member of the United States Air Force.  I am married to Isabel Lucero, and we have 2 perfect children… oh and I write erotic suspense books.  If there is anything else you want to know about me, feel free to write me ANYTIME and ask me ANYTHING, either here on this blog, or on my Facebook page.  

I have also given a radio interview to Behind the Words with Lori Hays, that aired this past weekend.  We talked about just about everything, and it was an absolute blast!!  I was so happy to learn after the interview aired, that my interview had acquired more listeners than any other non-featured show, EVER!!  That is from the hosts mouth.  I didn’t make that up.  That just made my day!!  So, if you haven’t heard the interview, you can check it out RIGHT HERE.

It’s way too early to start posting stuff about book 2 in the Carter Series, but I just wanted to end this blog post by letting you all know that I am working on writing Becoming Carter every single day.  I’m already over 10,000 words into it, and I can assure you all, you DO NOT want to miss out on this book!!  It’s going down!!  If you thought Kelvin was a bad ass before, just wait until you read Becoming Carter.
