Quick Update

Not had a good health week 🙁 Got slowed down in final bits of getting Thicker Than Blood ready for publication. The book is nearly here, but just a little longer. Sorry peeps.  Don’t worry, I’ll post freaking everywhere as soon as the file is live in the stores.

Book 6 and Sundry

Update!

Book 6: Thicker Than Blood is nearly ready. It’ll be out this month (September). I know I said August, but the plans of mice and writers, eh?

Health stuff continues as it was. My life is an episode of House, basically, except I haven’t coded on a table yet. It’s slowing down the work a lot, but books are still being worked on, no worries.  It is just unlikely for the near future that I’ll be able to keep up the pace of releases I had last year, so it will probably be at least 3 to 5 months between books going forward, sorry! I don’t want to release anything I’m not 100% happy with, so hopefully the wait will be worth it.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t read the first three Twenty-Sided Sorceress books for some reason or have friends or pets or dolphins or whatever that haven’t read them, there’s a special sale going on now where you can get the bundle for $0.99. This is only good through Sept 6th!

Bad News

Thicker Than Blood is going to be delayed until July 21st.

I’m sorry, peeps. I know how much you all want to read this book (and it’s my favorite that I’ve done so far, so trust me, you really do), but I’ve been really sick all month and the book isn’t ready. I refuse to release something I’m not 100% confident in, so please have patience. Life happens, and I’d rather take a couple extra weeks with my betas and editors to make sure this book is everything I know it can be.

Thank you for understanding.

Official Book Six Release Date

Hey, just a quickie note since I’ve had some people ask *when* in June The Twenty-Sided Sorceress book 6 will release.

I was aiming for the 16th, but due to some health issues and need to give my editor and beta readers time, the book will be out on June 30th. I know, I know, only technically still June, but hey… solid release date now.

There is no pre-order option on this book. Given how shaky my health has been this year, I didn’t want to lock myself into a date and then have to delay like last time.

Anyway, mark your calendars (or just sign up for the new release newsletter if you haven’t) for June 30th.  I’ll have the cover reveal and hopefully a release date for book 7 in July as well.

Thanks for staying on this crazy journey with me!

Justice Calling Free!

I’m turning 34 in May. For my bday, I decided to put Justice Calling free for 34 days to celebrate. I also shaved my head. I get weird around my birthday, what can I say?

Anyway, if you haven’t tried the 20sided Sorceress series yet or have friends who haven’t or something… free book! Just for May though, then I’ll probably make it cost a whole $0.99 again. *grin*

Twenty-Sided Sorceress Book Six Cover Reveal

First, a note about book five. Yes, there’s a cliffhanger. No, I didn’t warn people about it beforehand because that would kind of ruin the surprise, wouldn’t it?  All I will say about book five is that it is a) the longest book in the series so far no matter how short it might feel due to the events in it and b) is exactly as intended and not half a book.  I’ll reveal now that this part of the Twenty-Sided Sorceress will take seven books, so if all you want to see if Samir and Jade facing off again, read book seven. If you want to see the journey of how these characters become who they become, read all the books.  We couldn’t have Return of the Jedi without also having The Empire Strikes Back happen before it. *grin*

So. Book six. Here are the details. It’ll be out in June, 2015 (not so long a wait to see who is still alive, I promise). It’ll pick up more or less where book five left off, and it is going to feature not just Jade’s, but also two other points of view.

Here is the cover by the fabulous Ravven:

Also, I will add that book 7 will NOT be the end of the series. I have many more stories to tell in this world.  I’ll be adding a few titles about side characters as well. Here’s a special sneak peak at something in the works:

Signed Paper Books!

I’m doing a little experiment, with some help from a bookstore called Powell’s Books. They are the largest independent bookstore in the country and totally awesome.

So here is how it works. The Powell’s at Cedar Hills Crossing is carrying some of my books (after a very successful signing back in November) and I made a trip in to sign them.  So there are a very limited number of copies available, signed, right now. If this works and people want more signed books, Powell’s and I can coordinate more orders and I’ll make another trip to get stuff signed.

Below I’ve put book covers for the books that are available. Each cover links to the Powell’s website. Click the link of the book you want a signed copy of, and buy it! Powell’s ships pretty much everywhere, I think. Here is the slightly tricky part: you want to check the sale page and make sure the book is still listed as in stock at Beaverton, or your copy will be shipped from the warehouse and won’t be signed. So make sure it says in stock. Quantities are limited as this is an experiment.

Here are the books you can choose from:
