Updates on My Release Schedule!

BRIGHT FAMILIAR releases on Friday!! I’m super excited not only because I got the book done in time – whew! – and not only because I have over 1,000 preorders on Amazon for this book and still climbing – a personal record! – but because early reader-reviewers are saying such wonderful things about it. My heart and cup runneth over, for sure. You all are amazing in your love for this series. If you haven’t preordered yet and want to, you still can ūüôā

Some of you have been asking about my release schedule for both this series and Heirs of Magic. The obsessive fans¬†alert among you have noticed that my release date for THE STORM PRINCESS AND THE RAVEN KING has drifted into 2022. And GREY MAGIC, sequel to BRIGHT FAMILIAR , is coming out at the end of December. The reason for the release date drift is that I’m wedging in a novella for another midwinter holiday fantasy romance anthology! Everyone is still figuring out if they can fit it into their writing schedules, so I won’t tell you the participants yet. But as soon as I know, you’ll be hearing about it! Worse comes to worst, we pull the plug on the anthology and all of these release dates move up.
Here is my current plan (italics indicate tentative dates):

 

THE DRAGON’S DAUGHTER AND THE WINTER MAGE (Heirs of Magic 3) 9/13/2021

holiday novella 11/15/2021
GREY MAGIC (Bonds of Magic 3) 12/20/2021
THE STORM PRINCESS AND THE RAVEN KING
(Heirs of Magic 4) 2/22/2022

Finally, in case you missed it, THE LONG NIGHT OF THE CRYSTALLINE MOON, the prequel story to Heirs of Magic, previously only available in the UNDER A WINTER SKY anthology, is now available as a standalone.

How to Write Shorter Works Successfully

This week at the SFF Seven, we’re examining the differences between writing a short story, novella, novel, series. We’re asking each other: Do you prepare for length beforehand or edit down (or add new stuff) afterward?

So, I have Strong Opinions about this. Something that may come as a surprise to exactly none of you. Come on over for more!

 

Last Day for Reduced Preorder Price!

Only one more day to preorder UNDER A WINTER SKY at the lower preorder price of $5.99! The price goes up for release day tomorrow. Well, really it goes up tonight, since I’ll change the price on the retail sites before I go to bed. We’re hearing terrific things about the collection so far! My favorite is the person who instantly clicked, saying “You have no idea how much I need this in my life right now.”

I think we all could use some magic in our lives right now.

A Pre-Release Peek at UNDER A WINTER SKY!

This week at the SFF Seven, we’re sharing a snippet from a work in progress. We’re supposed to “tease” with one paragraph, but I’m going the extra multiple-paragraph mile. Since¬†UNDER A WINTER SKY¬†releases this week (you can preorder until Thursday for only $5.99, when the price goes up), I’m sharing the first chapter and a hint of the second chapter of my novella,¬†The Long Night of the Crystalline Moon. This story is a prequel to a brand new series I’m starting,¬†Heirs of Magic. Book One is¬†THE GOLDEN GRYPHON AND THE BEAR PRINCE, and will be out in January. It picks up where¬†The Long Night of the Crystalline Moon¬†leaves off.

You can preorder¬†UNDER A WINTER SKY¬†via the buttons below on follow that link to my website. I’ll also be adding the preorder for¬†THE GOLDEN GRYPHON AND THE BEAR PRINCE¬†this week.
