Welcome to my Regency romance world

Hello there! I'm Ebony Oaten and I write sweet and spicy Regency romances.    

I also co-ordinate and publish anthologies, which are so much fun!

playing to win!

Duke Around And Find Out is book one in a new connected series called Playing To Win. 

Wallflower Thomasina Burke is all too happy to entertain Lord Taunton during an otherwise dull season, with a series of increasingly bold wagers to add a little spice to the evenings.

There’s no harm, and no likelihood of them making a firm attachment.

Alas, a terrible accident catapults Taunton into new responsibilities - he’s now a duke, and way out of Thomasina’s league.

But Taunton has other ideas about what it means to be a duke, and what it means to have courage. After all, love is worth raising the stakes.

This novella was first published in the multi-author anthology, I Like Big Dukes And I Cannot Lie.

Miss Remington's Steely Resolve audio cover

Audio - at last!

Miss Remington's Steely Resolve is properly in audio.
It has taken me a while to get this sorted. I have collaborated with Catherine Bilson, who is a fabulous writer and narrator, and a pretty good friend by this point. Catherine and I team up at the RWAustralia conference each year now and plot future adventures. 
I am delighted with the recording of this, and the feedback I've had so far has prompted me to write further adventures set around the north of Wales and the Menai 'river' (which is actually an estuary, but let's not quibble). I can't wait to rescue a character from 'The Swellies' there.

Miss Remington is a sweet Regency novella, so even if 'something' does happen, it's not referred to on the page.

Stay tuned for further news, and more collaborations with Catherine.

Fetch The Earl

Her belief is challenged by a most unusual customer, and a series of events which begin to unravel everything she has built for herself.
Can she trust the solution she is offered?
Or is love too much to risk?

EBONY'S FORMATTING COLLECTIVE

Do you have a manuscript that needs formatting? Hit me up!

I use Affinity Publisher and Vellum to format books of all shapes and sizes. 

Email me at author@ebonymckenna.com to see if we're a good fit. My rate card is on the left.

What about Printing? 

Excellent question. There are several print options - Amazon and Ingram Spark are very convenient for the most common 'trim sizes' of novels. Ingram Spark will distribute your title to all online stores across the globe, Amazon offers global distribution in their online stores too, for print and ebook. Author print copies can be purchased from either operator.

If your book project is a different trim size - such as the two images below, which will be A4 portrait orientation - I recommend BookVault in the UK,  which will print a range of sizes and orientations. 

*Please bear in mind printers change prices and operations at whim and results may vary!
