Meet and Greets and the Tour

While we were at RWA, our oldest got a tattoo.  It is something meaningful to her, a Bible verse, and it is very tasteful, but my initial reaction was like this.

So, I shudder to think what will happen while we’re on tour.

We will make the signing.  We may NOT always make the meet and greets.  If our plane is delayed, if the traffic is heavy, etc, we may not be there.  You are going there on your own risk. Sorry.  :(

If you want to take pictures, hang out, and chat, Meet and Greet meetings are the perfect place.  If you read the book already, you can ask spoilery questions, etc.  We will NOT be signing books at the Meet and Greets.  This is to ensure that our preliminary meetings do not compete with the signings.  We are trying to support the book stores.

If you have special needs, please let the book store staff know.  For example, last year we had one lady with a walker who insisted on standing in line for an hour.  We would prefer that you did not suffer on our account.

While we are gone, Nicole will post and tweet the location of each signing and meet and greet as a reminder.  :)

MURDER BY THE BOOK

2342 Bissonnet St.

Under The Volcano, Houston.

It’s a casual place right across the street.  Murder by the Book isn’t really close to anything, so this is our best bet.

Magic-Breaks-smHere are some reviews in no particular order.  We are trying to include everything we see, but we probably missed a few.  If your review is missed, please email us using the business contact form on this site and your review will be forwarded to our publisher.  :D

Bookpushers – Joint Review

Smexy Books – Joint Review

Fantasy Book Critic – Joint Review

I’ve got a trend going here. Hang on, I think I saw one more somewhere…

Fiction Vixen – Joint Review

I think that’s it for the joint reviews.

Red Hot Books

The Qwillery

Reading and Writing Urban Fantasy

That’s What I’m Taking About

The Family Addiction

Vampire Book Club

To summarize: most people liked it, some people didn’t.  Some felt the conclusion was just right, some didn’t.  Some were happy that it was gut wrenching in a different way than MAGIC RISES, some wanted more relationship angst.

You just going to have to read it.

Audiobook of Magic Breaks

The audio book WILL BE AVAILABLE.  It’s at Recorded Books now and buy links should go up on Audible very soon, before release date.  Very soon is all I can tell you.  We had to go directly to the retailers and ask very nicely to fast-track it.  We owe people favors now.  :)

*Nicole here. Wanted to let everyone know that Magic Breaks is now available for pre-order at Audible.

Meet and Greets

We have gathered all of the information and we are waiting on confirmation from Ace’s publicist who arranged the tour.  If everything is confirmed, we will post dates, times, and locations here.  Nicole will also post the locations every day on the blog.

Very Kind Reviews of Magic Breaks

Yes, I have to.  It’s a prerelease week.  I warned you about promo. (Ps.  I love Nicole so much right now, I can’t even tell you.  I just had to look at the retweets on the pro account.)

Not Here

We have to go and attend business meetings and then we will start the tour.  We will be here very briefly Monday but mostly we will be gone until the 4th.  (On the 4th my father arrives to visit.  I haven’t seen him in 20 years.  He does not speak English.  This will be interesting.) Nicole is holding the fort in our stead. Be nice.

Magic Breaks UK E-edition Cover

Magic-Breaks-UKSeveral of you asked about UK edition of Magic Breaks.  There is no print version.  You have to order US edition from Book depository or Amazon.  The ebook version will be uploaded 24-48 hours after US release.

For Posterity

Okay, this will not last, so I am preserving this unexpected hilarity for posterity.  Drum rolls, please.
