Come and Talk to Me (if you want or are really really bored)! :3

My Bitten by Books Release Party for In Despair is tomorrow! If you want to come talk to me and a have chance to win Amazon gift cards, stop on by ^__^ I will be around from Noon PST to at least 17:00, but probably a little longer.

The last time I did something like this was at the Slash Pile back on LJ. Was fun!

Today is a writing day, so I will not be around much.

This coming Tuesday, our new furniture arrives! \o/ We don't often get to buy such shiny things, so we're super stoked. It's a whole living room set and because we did buy the whole set, we get a free TV :D

And August will be spent largely getting ready for September, when we're gonna spend two weeks on the west coast for Yaoicon and GRNW.

Last but not least, for those who have not already seen it, London sent me the cover for Rabbit Season! When it has a due date, I shall let peeps know ^__^


I hope everyone is having a lovely week!

Random Things

Sasha and I are participating in Digital Book Day. Today only you can download Dance with the Devil and Drink Class X for free. And there are lots of others books at the DBD site (pretty sure I saw Jordan Hawk), so have fun!

EDIT: Since apparently their site can't handle the traffic, just go to LT3 directly, that's where the DBD site linked anyway. Drinker. DwtD.

Speaking of books, I was excited to finally have all of these



I've been so busy with Princes of the Blood, I keep forgetting that A Suitable Replacement comes out beginning of August. Much love to those who read it piece by piece, to my editor Amanda for beating it into shape, and everyone who loves Deceived-verse. I hope you have enjoyed/will enjoy this latest addition to it.

Also love to everyone who has dropped me comments about In Despair. It's been very humbling, and gratifying, to see people like all the things I hoped they would, and that I managed to convey what I wanted. I think my favorite thing so far is the Lol they def act like teenagers vs. argh they def act like teenagers mix of reactions :3

That, and the way chibi Alrin stole the show briefly despite only being around for like a page ^__^

I am currently up to my neck in other projects, some of which were not originally planned and are throwing everything else off, but I'm still aiming to finish most, if not all, of them by the end of the year.

On the 16 I'll be at Blogger Girls to babble about Looking for More. On the 24th I'll be at Bitten by Books to chat about In Despair (and whatever else peeps want to know).

The Harem Master starts soon, taking Suitable's place. I will also have something else for peeps, along with the re-editions of King's Harem and Sandstorm.

LT3 is preparing for our convention adventure. It's like, one con and a meet-up, but we're going to be gone for like two weeks. In San Francisco for YaoiCon, then we'll be hanging around CA and WA a bit before going to Seattle for the Gay Romance Northwest Meet-up. We are sorting out books, swag, etc etc. If there is a book you want to see at YCon, speak now or forever hold your peace (GRNW we don't have much to do with the book ordering).

Lately I have been watching Dr. Who where I get the chance. I've always seen it in bits and pieces, and learned a lot from my sisters who are big fans, but never watched it properly. Haven't gotten far, but I'm having fun. Am going to be cosplaying Rose Tyler for Yaoicon :D

- - -

Let's see, anything else of interest? LT3 has lots of shiny books coming, as ever. Sasha and I have been watching Arrow, but mostly we just get mad at it for being fucking stupid. Bunch of shows I want to watch, but I haven't even caught up on Hannibal yet. Am managing to watch Sailor Moon Crystal, though :D :D :D

Now back to work I go ^__^

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!

In Despair and Other Writing News

In Despair comes out this week! I am happy and sad, nervous and excited.

This was meant to be a single story for serialization that turned into a trilogy. It's been quite the undertaking. I am proud of the results, but I will also be glad to take a break from this verse.

In Despair comes out Wednesday, which any LT3 peep knows means Tuesday night. If you have any questions, or just want to chat, or simply want to see me be a massive dork, I am going to be at Bitten by Books on July 24th to answer questions and such. There will also be a couple of drawings for Amazon gift cards, one for $50.00, the other $25.00.

This was definitely the hardest book of the three to write. It required the most work, editing wise, and poor Telme suffered more than any other character I've written, I think. And he's only 16-17 throughout the book (and Korin is 15-16). I hope peeps enjoy it.

Much, much love to everyone who has read this trilogy and made it as popular as it has been. It was a series I was certain would only do so well because everyone is sick of vampires, but it has been very well received ^___^

Thanks are also owed to readers of Looking for More, which is the fluffiest piece of nonsense I've published since Backwoods Asylum. I will be guest blogging at The Blogger Girls, one of my fav review sites, on the 16th (I have to write that blog post next, actually, before they kill me). If you want to come read my babbling about some of the things that went into that story, stop by ^__^


In other writerly news, next month A Suitable Replacement comes out in ebook. That story was meant to be some 20k fluff and nonsense piece, but wound up longer and more involved, cause at the end of the day I do what I'm told.

Replacing it as a serial will be The Harem Master, which I'm really fucking pleased with. It's a bit involved, since it bounces between three different POVs, but it's fun and it brings in bits and pieces of Tavamara I've never expounded on before (like the council). I think after I finish up some other stories in that verse that need finished, I will actually switch continents and do something with Rittu.

The new editions of Sandstorm and The King's Harem will be posted about that time, and I may have something else sort-of shiny to go along with. We shall see. I like Tavamara-verse, I'm really proud of it and love to play there.

In October, I'll be re-releasing Lukos Heat. Yay, dragons! And I've been ordered to do a sequel, which will probably get written next year when I've gotten other stuff off my plate.

And in December, LT3 has a Christmas anthology coming out, and I (AM THE EDITOR IN CHARGE AHAHAHAHA) have a story in that. More details to come on that later, but my story is called Two Parts Mistletoe and is about a potionmaker.

Still to be scheduled: Pack and Rabbit Season.

And everything else is in writing or editing. Many of my projects have fallen behind because of one thing or another, but I'm aiming to change that this month and get back on track. We shall see.

Love you, Peeps! Have a good week ^__^
