This is a note for all you wonderful readers and fans out there, especially those of you who have been buying me, reading me and, best of all, sharing your thoughts about my books with me.
Do you know what a street squad is? Basically, it’s a group of fans who love an author’s stories and style and want to help her get her books into the hands of more readers.
I formed a Street Squad a few months back. (You know who you are!!) We call ourselves Sandra’s Scouts and my Scouts are amazing. They’ve helped promote my brand new career in self publishing as well as the books I’ve written for Harlequin Presents.
How? In all kinds of ways. By reading my books and reviewing them. By talking about my books in blogs, in book review groups, with friends and family. My Scouts never praise my books unless they really think the books deserve praise. And, I should add right here, nobody gets paid for doing any of these things.
The Scouts are all about friendship. Togetherness. We have a special, private Facebook page accessible only to members and I’m in the process of establishing a private page on my website where I’ll occasionally post bits and pieces from my books in progress, covers not yet available to others, thoughts, ideas, whatever might be fun to share. I also hold occasional games open only to the Scouts, sometimes with small prizes.
If this sounds like something you think you’d enjoy, contact me through Messages at Facebook (facebook.com/writersandramarton) or through “Contacts” right here at my website or simply send me an email at email@example.com.
My next book will be out soon. It’s about the youngest Wilde sister and it’s called EMILY: SEX and SENSIBILITY. It’s romantic, it’s sexy, it’s fun and yet it’s also deeply touching. And I would love to have your help in introducing Â Emily and her exciting lover, Marco, to readers everywhere.

Have you met my newest, most exciting, most powerful family? Critical acclaim for the first books is TREMENDOUS!
THE PRINCE OF PLEASURE will introduce you to one of the hottest heroes I’ve ever created: Khan, Prince and Sheikh of Altara. His love affair with American Laurel Cruz will leave you breathless.
You’ll also meet Jacob, Caleb and Travis Wilde. All I can say about them is “Wow!” THE DANGEROUS JACOB WILDE sizzles! So does THE RUTHLESS CALEB WILDE, and THE MERCILESS TRAVIS WILDE burns up the pages.
Jake and Caleb can be yours right now but you’ll have to wait until mid-March for Travis.
Check out the excerpts and be sure and look for the marvelous reviews at Amazon.

I’ve stepped into the world of straight-to-digital publishing! And my very first book, written for that new world, became available today! It’s THE PRINCE OF PLEASURE and believe me, the title says it all! Sheikh Khan is every woman’s fantasy. Khan is tall. Dark-haired. Sexy. Gorgeous. Rich beyond measure. He’s the ruler of Altara, a wealthy kingdom moving slowly into the 21st century. Khan is bound by tradition… and Laurel Cruz, a Texas attorney, has little use for tradition. As far as Laurel’s concerned, ‘tradition’ is a tool men often use to keep women in their place. And the place Khan wants Laurel is in his bed.
You can buy THE PRINCE OF PLEASURE for your Kindle or your Nook and you can download it at Smashwords and you can also download it for your iPhone and iPad at iBooks.
I hope you fall in love with Khan–and if you do, please “Like” him at amazon, give him stars at iBooks and at Nook… Those are the best ways I know of letting other readers know that The Prince of Pleasure is a wonderful, sexy romance novel that they’re sure to enjoy!
