Frequently Asked Questions About Shayla Black's Collection & Upcoming Events
Question: Does the Wicked Lovers series have to be read in order?
Answer: Each of the books in the series can be read as a standalone, but you'll understand and enjoy the interactions between all the characters if you've read them in order. If you're unsure of the order of the series (or any series I write), you can view them in order here.
Question: Will you and Lexi Blake be writing another Masters of Ménage book?
Answer: We’re hoping to release the next in the series, Their Virgin Bride, in 2019. Cover, blurb, and pre-order links coming soon.
Question: Will you and Lexi Blake be writing another Perfect Gentlemen book (At the Pleasure of the President)?
Answer: We’ll be releasing the final book in the Perfect Gentlemen series, At the Pleasure of the President, in 2018. Cover, blurb, and pre-order links coming soon.
Question: Why can’t I find some of your upcoming works available for pre-order yet?
Answer: Works through a traditional publisher are typically uploaded to all the online bookstores 6-9 months in advance. My independently published (new and reissued) titles may be available to pre-order from iBooks up to 12 months in advance, but other vendors vary. Amazon only allows a mere 90 days before release. For these titles, once the links go live, I’ll list them all on my website and social media.
Question: Is your book available in Kindle/Nook/Print/Other format?
Answer: If I am aware of a book being available in any particular format/distributer, I do my best to link it from my site for easy access. If it’s not there, it’s because I haven’t found it/been made aware of it. My Wicked Lovers novellas associated with 1,001 Dark Nights are exclusive to Amazon for the first 90 days.
Question: Will you be writing more Wicked Lovers novels?
Answer: The final full-length Wicked Lovers book, Holding on Tighter, released February 7, 2017. For cover, blurb, and other details, check the webpage for Holding on Tighter. My new crossover series, Devoted Lovers has debuted.
Question: Why can't I find some of your titles in print in book stores?
Answer: Some titles are independently published, meaning I publish them myself. Book stores don’t typically do business with individual authors. There’s a long, business-related explanation for this, but I'm trying to see if I can work some magic. Rest assured, I always make sure there’s a print book available. Buy links are available on each book’s information page and can always be found on Amazon.com.
Question: Will you be writing more Doomsday Brethren books?
Answer: I hope to release another one someday. Besides my schedule being VERY full, I have some contractual issues with the original publisher that nixed my plans to reissue previous titles (with all the sex and other deleted scenes they'd removed) so I could continue the series. If that changes, then I'll do everything to work a new DDB title into my calendar because I miss these characters, too. Rest assured, I've heard from MANY of you who want to know what's going to happen with Bram and his mysterious Emma. And of course, lots of people ask for an update on the big guy, Shock. I'm hoping this situation resolves itself soon. I'll keep everyone advised if there's any progress.
Question: Why so long between books in any given series?
Answer: Writing and editing a book is a time-consuming process. Juggling more than one series is a delicate balance, and I try my best to release both something in every series as often as I can. I promise I’m hard at work to give readers the next adventure as soon as possible!
Question: Will you ever write historical romances again?
Answer: I’ve re-released my out-of-print historical titles One Wicked Night, The Lady and The Dragon, Strictly Seduction, and Strictly Forbidden in both print and electronic formats. My medieval series, Brothers in Arms, His Lady Bride. His Stolen Bride, and His Rebel Bride are also available. That encompasses all the previously published historical romances I plan to reissue. As for writing new original historicals, that's not in my plan currently, but I’ll never say never. Maybe a novella for Darius someday.
Question: I watched the book video for Decadent and I love that song. Who sings it?
