If you read DEATH AND RELAXATION, book #1 of my Ordinary Magic series, you might have noticed that book #2, DEVILS AND DETAILS was supposed to be out in July. You might also notice that it is currently no longer July. It is also almost no longer August. Sigh... Getting book #2 out into the world came with a load of delays, set backs, Life Stuff, and a broken thumb. I have to say that despite all that, I'm really, really excited about this book. Today, on this almost-no-longer-August Monday, I can finally announce that DEVILS AND DETAILS will be available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, (and other e-tailers) Wednesday, August 31! Yes, this Wednesday! The print version will be out Very Soon. Please hang in there just a little longer, my print readers. I'm pulling it together as quickly as I can. So to recap: things are finally on track. We have a book, a release date, a thumb that doesn't really bend correctly any more, and we have a cover! Wow, right? How gorgeous is that? The artist is Lou Harper of Harper Designs and I LOVE her work on this series. And lastly, for the cherry on top, here is an exclusive sneak peek. Thank you again for being so patient with me!
Back Lash, book #1 of the Shame and Terric series is officially available as an ebook! I've had a couple questions since the book came out and thought I'd answer them here. Will there be a print edition? - If Back Lash sells well enough, I plan to write a second, longer Shame and Terric novel and will release both it and Back Lash as ebook and print some time next year. Will there be an audio edition? - At this time: no. If that changes (again, depending on how well the ebook version sells) I'll be sure to let you know! Where is it available? - Currently it's up on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and iTunes. Can I get it free? - Yes! Just request it through your local library. They should be able to get a digital copy in for loaning at no cost to you. And maybe my favorite question: That cover--is Shame stealing Terric's clothes? Yes. Yes he is. 😉 If you have any other questions, let me know and I'll do my best to answer them. You can find me here, or follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr. Or if you'd just like a monthly update with sneak peeks and giveaways, then signing up for my no-spam once-a-month (ish) newsletter is the way to go.
And without further ado, here is the cover for BACK LASH: I received a few questions from my last blog post, and I thought I'd answer them here.
- BACK LASH comes out in all ebook formats on November 12, 2015. There are no pre-order links, but the novel should be live and ready to purchase on Thursday.
- I intend to write a follow up Shame & Terric novel, and combine them in a print version some time next year. So, yes, there will be a print version of BACK LASH, but not for awhile.
- Steampunk...okay, this isn't really a question about BACK LASH, but I get it often enough I thought I'd address it here too. 🙂 When will there be another book in the Age of Steam series? Right now...I'm not sure. If I can fit it into my schedule, I hope I can write the book in 2016. I currently have two other novels on my plate and the deadline for those is ticking down. I do love Cedar, Wil, Mae, Rose, and Hink, and of course those Madder brothers. I don't intend to abandon their stories. Please be patient with me. I promise as soon as I can get that book written and in your hands, I will do so. 🙂
Speed round is over! Wow, that was the fastest one ever!! Thanks for playing! The first comment on this blog wins an ARC of Crucible Zero. Go, go, go! 🙂
