Book News

An update on what’s going on in the book world of moi:

Virtual is now FREE wherever eBooks are sold. If you haven’t read it yet, this is a quirky little novella with elements of contemporary romance, sci-fi, and thriller. You’ll laugh, you’ll gasp, you’ll never look at your toaster the same way again. Go on, give it a try! You can even leave a review if you’re feeling adventurous. ūüėČ

The Blood and Shadows series is also on sale. The first three books are priced at $0.99, $1.99, and $2.99 respectively. This one is all sci-fi, shape shifters,  and mind readers, falling in love, having hot sex, and trying to save the world. Okay, that last is a bit of a stretch, but you get what I mean.

Next up in The Rebel Court series is Dearest Love, which just got sent off to my lovely editor. I am in love with this one! Beau and Lily have history together, and their chemistry is just amazing. If you signed up for this erotic romance series mailing list, you’ll automatically be getting Dearest Love, starting August 1, 2017. One chapter per day, as promised.

If you haven’t signed up yet,¬†do it now,¬†because¬†once the first chapter goes out, all other sign ups will have to wait until the next book in the series to get in on the action. As with¬†Catch Me, the novella will become available for purchase as a complete eBook after the last chapter is sent, so if you don’t want to parcel it out, feel free to wait. But I gotta tell you, there are perks to being on that mailing list. *hint hint*

And last but not least, look for a new¬†Here There Be Monsters short story in the next few days. If you missed the previous ones, there’s a handy list of links in the sidebar for your reference. Sometimes the summers get pretty hot, so I figure why not cool off with some macabre/horror chills? ūüėČ

Until next time!

Blood Hunt Release Date

BH2

Good morning and happy Friday!

A quick announcement for your pre-weekend today. Last Sunday, I sent out a Newsletter with a full chapter of Blood Hunt and its official release date. ¬†That chapter won’t be reposted anywhere else. Sorry if anyone missed it. I did promise that my Newsletters would be worth it for those who signed up. If you’re not on the mailing list yet, you can add yourself here. The good news is, I will be posting the release date for Blood Hunt. But before I get to that, some news to share:

Blood Moons is doing wonderfully its first week. Both the digital and print versions are now available across the board at online retailers around the world, and it has found a home with readers in Canada, Australia, Great Britain, and even Germany! I happen to think that’s pretty awesome. ūüėÄ

The next release, Blood Trails, is already available for pre-order in digital format, with print editions going live on or shortly after its release day on October 10, 2015. You can find the links on the book’s page.

Blood Debts is also available for pre-order, and will be releasing on October 24, 2015. For some reason, the print cover was giving me grief with this one, but it’s now just the way I want it (I had to go double check just now to make sure of that). So no snags or delays there.

HuntThumbAnd finally, the big news. For those who missed it, the 4th installment in Blood and Shadows will be releasing earlier than I had hoped, thanks to the amazing efforts of my brilliant editor, who got the content and line edits completed in record time! I am therefore able to keep to the current 2-week release increments, and¬†Blood Hunt¬†will make its official debut on November 7, 2015! Break out the champagne and mark your calendars, folks, this one’s going to be epic! Check the quote at the top of this post if ya don’t believe me. Yep, it’s gonna be big. I can’t wait!

You know it’s good when your editor sends you emails about what she’s reading, and makes awesome comments in the margins like, “LOL This cracked me up!” And yes, I do break into an awkwardly embarrassing happy dance every time I see one of those. It’s a writer thing…

That’s all from me for the moment. ūüôā I return you now to enjoy your Friday and the weekend.

Until next time!

A New Age Dawns

bands

The Blood Series eBooks are now gone for all time. If, by chance, some stores still carry them, they won’t be for long. In their place, the new versions will start popping up for pre-sale, with shiny new covers and price tags, and book 1 is already there for pre-order! Note the specially reduced price on this gorgeous baby: $0.99 on the US side!

Pre-order your copy now at the following retailers:

MoonsThumb
Smashwords
Amazon.com | Amazon.co.uk | Amazon.ca | Amazon.com.au
Barnes & Noble
Kobo
All Romance EBooks
iTunes

More to come as they appear where they are supposed to be. You’ll always find the most popular links on the book’s main page.

 

What’s changed?

 

Mostly, all that has changed is the look. I have updated the cover, fixed the formatting so there are now distinguishable chapter breaks, scene division, etc. Residual typos and errors have been corrected as well. In terms of content, the story is still the same. I have added maybe one paragraph’s worth of new content to one scene. It doesn’t affect the plot in this book whatsoever, but it does have bearing on book 4: Blood Hunt, which is on schedule to release November or December of this year. The print version of Blood Moons will go on sale on, or shortly after the release date, and autographed copies will be available in my store.

Blood Trails and Blood Debts will re-release on October 10 and October 24 respectively. Much like book 1, the only difference is one or two paragraphs’ worth of new content which doesn’t affect the immediate plot and only serves to create a subtle tie-in to book 4.

DragonbornSeries

Meanwhile, Dragonborn, the sequel to The Royal Wizard is still under construction and on schedule to release in 2016. So much is happening in and around this series that I had to get a dry-erase board to jot down some series notes for continuity. I’ll let you know how that works out. LOL But the biggest news¬†is that it now has an official blurb! And if you’re a writer, you know how big of a deal this is.

That’s all from my end for the moment. =) More updates to come as they develop.

Until next time!

Farewell to The Blood Series

Dear friends, followers, and readers,

The last few years have been an amazing ride for me. My writerly journey has taken me to some beautiful places, and it all started with Liquid Silver Books taking me, a complete newbie, under its wing, and making my dreams of being a published author come true.

Now, after a happy 5-year association, for which LSB will always have my undying thanks, I have had to make the decision every writer comes to eventually: to do what is best for me and my books. I love LSB dearly, and always will. They have been nothing but supportive of my efforts to bring my books to readers everywhere. However, having spent the last three years experimenting with self-publishing, it has become clear to me that this is the path I want to take. And so, with my heart full of gratitude, I announce my departure from Liquid Silver Books in order to become a fully self-published author.

On August 31, 2015, Blood Moons, Blood Trails, and Blood Debts, the first three novels of The Blood Series, will be taken down from the virtual shelves, marking the end of an era for me.

September 27, 2010 was the date Blood Moons first appeared online. September 27, 2015 will be the date it will make its reappearance as the first Blood and Shadows novel to be independently published in both digital and print format. October 10 will mark the re-release of Blood Trails as book 2 in the Blood and Shadows series. It will be followed by book 3,  Blood Debts on October 24, 2015. All of this will lead up to the debut of Blood Hunt, the fourth Blood and Shadows novel, this winter (actual release date to be announced). And yes, for the first time ever, all of them will be available in print as well.

For the many of you who have already purchased and read these books, know that there will be no changes made to the plots, barring a handful of words here and there, and some corrections to leftover errors. The only telling difference is the series name and the covers. Each book will also be enrolled in the Amazon MatchBook program to give you a significant discount on the eBooks when you purchase both digital and print versions.

So, my honored friends, I would now like to bid farewell to The Blood Series:

Blood Moons  Blood Trails  Blood Debts  BloodHunt

And (re)introduce you to the books of Blood and Shadows:

NewBloodMoons  NewBloodTrails  NewBloodDebts  NewBloodHunt

With the caveat that there¬†might possibly be¬†more of them¬†to come in the future. Plot bunnies… They just snuck up on me.

Thank you to everyone who has and continues to support my writing. It means the world to me that readers all over the world are enjoying the stories I write.

Until next time!
