Winning! All the winning!

Hi! I’m hoping to get back to a schedule that’s NOT ‘every six weeks,’ but realistically, it might continue this way through the rest of the year. I’ve finished Oracle Bay 2 and it’s off to the editor this week. I have a good start on the novella that is ostensibly Oracle Bay 3.5. I am still hoping to bust out Oracle Bay 3 in time for the winter holidays, and Eleanor Morgan #5 will be out the end of February.

BUT BUT BUT – updating you all on my publishing schedule is only kinda why I’m here.

Mostly, I’m here to announce that Eleanor has new covers! And they are so beautiful. My previous covers were also great, and I’ll always have a special place in my heart for them, but Eleanor v2.0 is a whole lotta wow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are these magnificent or what? Daqri Combs (of Covers by Combs) did these for me and I am so excited about them. I love that she kept the original color scheme and added hella more dragons.  (pssstttt…there is a super sale going on in the store for my remaining paperbacks with the original covers! grab them while they last!)

In addition to new covers, The Cardinal Gate is getting a rewrite/edit for the first third and that will be live by the end of the week, too!

As if that wasn’t exciting enough, The Waning Moon got an Honorable Mention in the 2018 Readers’ Favorites awards in the Urban Fantasy category!

I am so pleased with this award. This is the second book that I published, and to get an Honorable Mention is a huge deal for me. It is so gratifying! I feel fancy.

Last, but not least – Not in the Cards is going to be released in a just a few weeks! Grab your presale copy for $0.99 now! Price is back up to $3.99 once it comes out on October 25.

I’ll be back on and off for the next month, talking about my books and release dates and deadlines and my release party on 10/25 (if you’re in Portland and want to come, let me know), as well as my upcoming whirlwind trip to Vancouver BC and a weekend getaway to Oracle Bay.

In addition, starting about 10 days before Not in the Cards comes out, there will be a gift basket giveaway, so stay tuned!

Broken World Cover Reveal (plus Presale links)

I tried to hold out on you, but I just couldn’t do it.

Book 4 of the Eleanor Morgan Series is out there in the world, ready for you to pre-order it and then sit around in anticipation for five weeks.

The Blurb

A year of travel, countless battles, betrayal, love, and loss—all lead to the final gate, the last sacrifice, and the end of the world as we know it.

Eleanor has only two gates to open to restart traffic between Earth and the Fae Plane, and the only certainty is that either way, the world will change. For the first time, humans are the biggest threat to Eleanor. The government is descending into chaos and groups of humans are determined to eradicate the supernatural scourge they believe is destroying their world.
From the desert southwest back to the place it all began, old friends will reunite, old enemies will create chaos, and myths will walk the earth again.

An ancient prophecy comes to fruition through Raj’s Ruby Blade, and the only question that remains is who will wield it as the world breaks?

DRUMROLL PLEASE!

The Pitch

This is my favorite Eleanor Morgan book so far! It’s the end of the first major arc, and sets up the next couple books pretty well, if I do say so myself.

I hope you buy it and then, I hope you love it.

The Paperback

The paperback will be up for sale in about a month, and soon you’ll be able to preorder your autographed paperback here, too. (Probably as soon as tomorrow.)

Psssstttttttt…

For a limited time, i.e. until the release of The Broken World, The Cardinal Gate is on sale for $0.99. Now’s your chance to grab it at that price while you can. It won’t go on sale again until 2019!

Three Things Thursday – Broken World Edition

It’s that pre-publishing time when everything is all Broken World all the time.

  1. The cover reveal is going out in my newsletter tomorrow (see sidebar for signup!) and the preorder announcements will happen Monday at the latest (just waiting on a couple outlets to get it out and up). Paperbacks won’t be available for a while, yet, but I’ll let you know when they’re available.
  2. The publication date has been moved up a week to 3/20/18; ARCs will be going out this weekend
  3. I have comments back from the editor, and she seemed to like it okay (unless they were tears of despair about my writing, rather than tears because my writing made her have other, more positively sad feels).

I’ll leave you with another glimpse of the cover!

Cover Reveal! The Ruby Blade

I am so excited to share this with you guys. I love my cover artist and what she’s been doing for the series, and really think this captures Eleanor and where she’s at with The Ruby Blade.

As much as doing the cover art is one of the most fun parts of the gig, writing the accompanying blurb is my least favorite part.

I mean, I have one, but I think the real winner is the version I came up with Monday evening as I was workshopping this in my author group chat (for the 1 millionth time):

Just buy it. It’s not that bad.

NAKED HOTTUB SCENE!

GOOD FIGHTING!

/and scene

The Blurb

Raj swore he’d pay any price to recover the blade he’d wielded a thousand years ago, but what if that price is Eleanor’s trust?

Eleanor is beset on all sides by supernatural enemies determined to halt her quest to reopen otherworldly traffic between Earth and the Fae Plane. Double-dealing shifters, black magic, and treacherous elves challenge the skills and cohesion of the group.

The chill that threatens to send her dragon half into hibernation does nothing to bank the fires of her desire for Raj—but Florence’s cryptic warning prevents her from succumbing to his charms. Raj is not what he seems and he is hiding something far darker than Eleanor ever imagined.

Will she be able to forgive him or will the truth kill her?

And, without further ado, the cover!

 

Didn’t Skyla do an amazing job?

I’m super excited for you guys to read this book! ARCs will be headed out the end of next week (maybe earlier) and the release is set for 10/31/17.

You can add it to your Goodreads queue The Ruby Blade (Eleanor Morgan #3)  and even preorder it on Amazon (Kindle version only at this point).

Cover Reveal: Beard in Mind

You may remember that I’m fairly fond of Penny Reid. (We’re engaged. Although she’s not returning my calls, so I may have to send back my wedding goats.)

Anyway, she has a new book coming out soon in the spin-off series from her Knitting in the City series.

The Blurb

All is fair in love and auto maintenance.

Beau Winston is the nicest, most accommodating guy in the world. Usually.

Handsome as the devil and twice as charismatic, Beau lives a charmed life as everyone’s favorite Winston Brother. But since his twin decided to leave town, and his other brother hired a stunning human-porcupine hybrid as a replacement mechanic for their auto shop, Beau Winston’s charmed life has gone to hell in a handbasket.

Shelly Sullivan is not nice and is never accommodating. Ever.

She mumbles to herself, but won’t respond when asked a question. She glares at everyone, especially babies. She won’t shake hands with or touch another person, but has no problems cuddling with a dog. And her damn parrot speaks only in curse words.

Beau wants her gone. He wants her out of his auto shop, out of Tennessee, and out of his life.

The only problem is, learning why this porcupine wears her coat of spikes opens a Pandora’s box of complexity—exquisite, tempting, heartbreaking complexity—and Beau Winston soon discovers being nice and accommodating might mean losing what matters most.

The Cover

I have been loving these covers, even though they remind me of the dark times (when I used to try to be crafty via cross-stitch and other needlepoint endeavors).

I am very much looking forward to this book, because WINSTON BROTHERS! Bearded hotties! I love me some bearded hotties. *sigh*

So – go forth in anticipation and preorder (August 1 release date)!
