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!

Writerly Wednesday: Book Updates

As of *checks watch* about five days ago, I am no longer participating in the Kindle Unlimited program. The reasons for this are myriad and have been covered by other authors in so many other forums. The short version is – Amazon’s Kindle Select payment options have dropped every month since I enrolled (save August, which saw a slight bump back up) and I’m just not getting enough page reads to make the exclusivity worth it for me.

So – The Cardinal Gate and The Waning Moon are available at so many other places now! (I’m hoping to get The Ruby Blade up for pre-order on all those other places, but it’s taking awhile to yank that one from the Kindle Select, so right now, you can only pre-order via Amazon Kindle.)

So – to celebrate my books going wide, The Ruby Blade’s upcoming release, and the fact that it’s October, i.e. the best month of the year, The Cardinal Gate and The Waning Moon are on sale for the entire month for only $0.99 each. Right around 11/2, the prices will be going back up to their regular prices of $2.99 and $3.99 respectively.

So – now’s your chance to snag those ebooks for only $0.99 each! DO EET! DO EET FOR THE CHILDREN! (Just kidding, please do not read these books to your children. There is some Strong Language and Violence and Sexual Content) that makes these super not appropriate for the children.)

Surprisingly, this book links to all the places you can buy THIS fine book.

 

Happy reading!

Writerly Wednesday: The Waning Moon

I promise that some day, I won’t have an entire week of Waning Moon related blog posts. That week will be next week. This week? All Eleanor Morgan all the time!

So, as I may or may not have mentioned, I had a book release yesterday!

 

Ummm…so words! And things! I spent the day super not constantly refreshing my sales page. *pinky swear*

FINE. Lies. I refreshed constantly.

And then?

There was pink champagne!

How else do you celebrate a summer book release?

This book release was just as stressful as last one. I had this weird expectation that it would be easier this time around.

hahahahaha

Anyway. I enjoyed my champagne while I absolutely did not refresh A LOT.

You know you want to keep me in mid-priced champagne, so buy my books! Support your starving (that’s an exaggeration; I have a day job) writer.

I’m looking forward to digging into Eleanor’s third book. I’m about 2/3 of the way through the rewrites, and need to add a few thousand words to get through it. (There’s a lot of Raj in book 3. A lot.)

In other news – my newsletter comes out later today! There’s Raj (Chapter 4), a Waning Moon brew review, an announcement about a fun summer event I’m doing with some other awesome authors, and upcoming release announcements. (Sign up in the sidebar!)

Thanks for hanging with me for the last years, the book publishing, and the blog transition.

Sköl!

It was good champagne.
