Production schedule update, website, and some news!
The final cover for Prophecy has been submitted and gone through editing, and we’re actually a bit ahead of the estimated production schedule - it looks like we should be shipping books by August 7, instead of the 21st! I’m so excited to see the final version, and to share it with all of you!
Also, I’ve been overhauling and adding lots of new things to my old wordpress site, so come check it out and follow me! There’s a lot - from my other books and stories (mostly romance, mostly paranormal, mostly LGBTQA+), to some bonus scenes and extras and my playlists for stories, to upcoming releases and appearances!
Speaking of upcoming appearances, at the end of the month I’ll be doing a guest blog over on Nicole Field’s blog, all about romance and representation and the upcoming (from Less Than Three Press) polyamory anthology Happiness in Numbers, of which I am a part, so look for that! Also, if you happen to be near Sydney, Australia, I will be there next week for the IASPR conference (that’s the International Association for the Study of Popular Romance), wearing an odd combination of the Romance Writer Hat and the Professor Hat. (Metaphorically speaking. I don’t even really wear hats. Not often, anyway.) I am giving an actual paper, and getting a small amount of travel grant money, so that will be nice. And come say hi if you’re around!
Third, in the category of People Saying Nice Things – Gail Carriger (yes, THAT Gail Carriger!) reviewed my first novel, A Demon for Midwinter, over on Goodreads, and I’ll just quote because I am excited: “I adored this book. It was sweet and charming. …It’s nice to see some solid worldbuilding in a PNR [paranormal romance]….One of those where I spent the second half of the book grinning like an idiot.” So, that’s my day and month and possibly even year made!
I hope you are all having a fabulous day - more soon!
Hi, friends and followers! A quick status update, and some other book news!
The copy-edits for Prophecy have been sent back, so there’s not too much left to do other than final formatting - it sounds like we should be expecting more or less an August release date, unless anything unexpected pops up! And then it’ll all be real...
In other book news, I am officially a published romance author with JMS Books now! If you happen to like tired rock stars, demons with kind hearts, paranormal romance, male/male romance, boys falling in love, classic rock references, or if you just like the things I write - then please come buy A Demon for Midwinter (here’s the Amazon link) and support me! There will also be three bonus stories - the first one, "Lightning in a Bottle," will be out April 28th (so soon! here’s the Amazon link for that too) for FREE, and free stories are always good, right?
And my novella "Port in a Storm" is still available from Less Than Three Press, if you like male/male romance, neighborhood witches, and kitten shapeshifters - there will be a sequel, which I’ve signed the contract for, so look for that too!
Lots of exciting developments - thanks for sharing them all with me! This wouldn’t be happening without all of you.
Just a quick update - things are moving along on the editorial front, and Inkshares just sent me the list of patrons for inclusion, so if you hear from me as far as checking your preferred name/spelling or anything, that’s why!
Also, if you like the things I write, or if you like cat shapeshifters and witches, or if you like gay paranormal fantasy in general, a small self-promotion: - my novella Port in a Storm, from Less Than Three Press, is available here on Amazon! And it is only $1.99, at the moment! The sequel is in the hands of my editor over at LT3, too...
Just checking in - I know it’s been a little while, but for good reasons! Reasons which have occupied some of my time, which I’ll tell you about in a minute!
Prophecy is hanging out in the editorial pipeline, over here - everything’s submitted and turned in, just waiting...
Here’s the OTHER news:
1) if you like romance (especially of the LGBTQ+ kind), urban fantasy, cats, witches, and hot chocolate - my novella Port in a Storm is available as of TONIGHT from Less Than Three Press! You can buy it here, and then come and have all the feelings about David and Colin with me! There will also be at least one sequel...
2) I have also signed a contract with JMS Books for the thing I’ve been affectionately referring to as the Midwinter Demon Book, and that will be out in paperback AND digital formats in March! *screams and runs around happily* There will be musicians! M/M romance! Demons! Pizza! Rescuing of babies! Rock and roll!
3) I have ALSO signed a contract for an academic book about the wonderful and sorely missed Terry Pratchett, which will be out from McFarland in 2018!
So it’s been a busy few months, over here. But thanks for sticking with me, and I hope you’re having a lovely December, all of you, full of joyfulness!
