I turned in the revisions for HOUSE IMMORTAL a week ago! Yay! Even though it was a pretty massive revision (I axed over 43,000 words, removed two characters, inserted a new character, shifted the side plots and re-wrote scenes from scratch...while also keeping all the cool stuff from the first version) I think the revision packed the book with even more fun, action, and daring-do!
Right now I am so very pleased with how this book turned out. Which is pretty normal for me at this stage of a book's life. By the time it hits the shelves in September, I'll be neurotically worried that it sucks, but right now, I know it's a strong, good book with strong, good characters in a new, exciting world.
Oh, and HOUSE IMMORTAL is now available for pre-order.
Next up in my writing queue is to get cracking on book #2 in the House Immortal series. That's due in a little over a month, which means I'll be writing like a crazy writing-thing to hit the deadline.
A couple questions from readers:
1. When is HELL BENT, book #1 in the Broken Magic (Shame and Terric) spin off from the Allie Beckstrom books going to be available in ebook in the UK?
Right now! Here's an Amazon link.
2. When is STONE COLD, book #2 in the Broken Magic (Shame and Terric) spin off from the Allie Beckstrom books coming out?
April 1, 2014. Yes! So soon!
3. Are you going to give away any advance reader copies of Stone Cold?
Funny you should ask......
(Book Bloggers--I have three (3) ARCs I would like to offer up for your reading/possible reviewing. Please contact me via the email button on my blog, and the first three book bloggers/reviewers who contact me will receive an ARC. I understand that winning an ARC does not obligate the blogger/reviewer to blog or review the book. )
I have five (5)! Advanced reading copies of STONE COLD to giveaway! These have the non-pretty cover and are pre-proofs, which means they probably include a few bonus typos for your reading amusement.
To win one, all you have to do is leave a comment here on my blog and I will choose winners Saturday, February 22, before midnight PST.
I will mail internationally.
If winners do not contact me by Friday, February 28th, I will offer up the remaining ARCs in an exciting first-comments-first-wins speed giveaway on Saturday, March 1st.
Good luck, lovely people!
