Hi everyone! My apologies for being scarce on the blog again. As many of you know, last year I moved from South Florida to North Carolina. Northern Florida might have some hint of seasons, but where I was, there were only two seasons: Hot and hotter. Plus, last autumn I was behind on a deadline so I barely went outside during September and October. That makes this autumn the first time in, well, decades that I’ve been able to see the leaves change and enjoy the nice crisp air. So after I finished revisions on Twice Tempted a week ago, I’ve been outside instead of keeping my keyboard company. I could wax poetic about how the trees seems to drip with gold, amber, garnet, and citrine-colored leaves, but I’ll spare you :). I’m sure you get the idea.
Speaking of Twice Tempted (Night Prince book two, out in March), I’m happy to say that at the end, there will be an excerpt from the seventh Night Huntress novel, tentatively titled Up From the Grave (out sometime in winter 2013). Also, if you haven’t already read the latest of Cat and Bones’s adventures in my holiday novella in The Bite Before Christmas anthology, the mass market paper edition releases at the end of this month. In TBBC mass market edition, there will an excerpt from Twice Tempted. A reminder, however, that you do not have to pay to read these or any other excerpts. I always post them on my website leading up to release, so these are only bonus tidbits for people who wanted to get the other book(s) anyway :).
And speaking of free reading, the blog Supernatural Underground is having a Halloween giveaway that’s chock full of great books. Below is the description, copied with permission from Supernatural Underground:
On All Hallows Eve, the sky darkens, the wind blows, and everyone dons costumes, a futile attempt to disguise themselves from the supernatural creatures that are allowed to prowl the streets, one night a year. Ghosts, werewolves, vampires, shape shifters, mermaids and Selkies—these are the sort of creatures that make the rest of the world tremble. But here, on the Supernatural Underground, well, that’s a different story.
Here, we invite the monsters inside. We open the door willingly. Monsters and ghosts and shape shifters get the best seat at our table. We sit, rapt, as they tell us their Halloween Tale of Woe. We lean forward, eager to find out what happens next.
Their stories are like candy to us.
And isn’t that what everyone freely gives away on Halloween—handfuls of delicious candy? That’s what we’re doing, right here, right now. We’re giving away Supernatural Underground candy this month.
We’re giving away a Supernatural Underground Halloween Book Prize Pack, filled with 24 books, all written by Supernatural Underground authors. All you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter at the bottom of the page.
