Hi, all, got some news for you: Night Prince #3, the still-untitled third novel in Vlad and Leila’s story, has an official release date! It’s coming out January 26th, 2015. Yes, nine and a half more months from now, but I hope you’ll think it’s worth the wait once it’s finally here. As soon as I have a title, back cover description and/or pre-order links, I’ll list those, too, so stay tuned.
Speaking of Night Prince 3, I’m doing my usual shout-out for song recommendations. As many of you know, I write each book to its own “playlist,” but right now, I’m writing NP3 while listening to TWICE TEMPTED’s playlist because I haven’t made a new one yet. Many of your previous recommendations have ended up in my playlists, so can you help me out again? I mostly like alternative and rock, with a little pop, rap and retro, too. To give you a more specific idea, here’s the playlist I listened to while writing UP FROM THE GRAVE (meant to post this closer to the book’s release, so my apologies for the delay.) Usual disclaimer: There’s no special meaning for the book in these songs and music tastes are subjective, so if you don’t like the music I like, no problem. Just please don’t tell me that I shouldn’t like it, because if it’s listed, I do, thus no arguing on your part will change my mind :).
