The counter is at zero. It arrived. 🙂
We are off to Dallas in a few minutes, leaving the blog and social media in Brandi’s capable hands. For those of you who can’t come and see us, there will be an FAQ thread.
The Kinsmen Universe Collector’s Edition (Preorder Now Available!)
In a distant, future world Kinsmen—small powerful groups of genetically and technologically advanced families—control vast financial empires. They are their own country, their own rulers, and their only limits are other Kinsmen. The struggle for power is a bloody, full-contact sport: in business, on the battlefield…and sometimes in the bedroom.
The Kinsmen Collector’s Edition is now available for Pre-order! Ilona Andrews is super grateful for all of the amazing support that made this awesome project happen. It comes in two different variations. There is the Kinsmen Universe Signed Lettered Edition and the Kinsmen Universe Signed Limited Edition, both in stock and ready for preorder.
This edition contains no new material. It’s a collector edition of Silent Blade and Silver Shark with A Mere Formality as a bonus story.
You can view pricing info and place your preorder here.

A Message From Brandi (That’s me!)
Hi everyone, I recently just got back from vacation and wanted to let you all know that your emails will be responded to. I ask of you to be patient with me, as I currently have a backlog of about seven thousand emails. However, I am determined to answer each and every one, so please don’t feel ignored or neglected. I promise to get to you.
You know how you take a few days off for vacation and there is a whole bunch of stuff when you come back? We spent some time dealing with all the cool and not so coll admin issues in New York, while visiting our agent, but we came back to more stuff. I swear, the emails are breeding. Gordon caught some sort of crud so I’m on my own today.
Business, business, business.
Okay, first things first. I’m supposed to tell you that Penguin Random House has a giveaway.
Boom, done. Check mark off my list.
Penguin Random House is also doing a cool promotion for KD with libraries at ALA. Apparently, there will be bookmarks with a code that will allow you to enter a giveaway to win two sets of books, one for the librarian and one for the library, so if you are a librarian interested in our work, please be on lookout for that.
On to Avon news, the new novella will likely be called Diamond Fire and because of the super-speed of the preorders, they are working up a cover ASAP, so we will share as soon as we have something.
If you are a member of IA Addicts on Goodreads, we are doing a Q&A there and answering all the spoilery questions.
As an aside, I just sent an “ARGH. Um… No?” as a reply to an email and Brandi somehow managed to turn that into a polite and professional message. Yay, Brandi.
Games: nothing solid yet; however, we might get a casual game based on Innkeeper novels. It will act much like choose your own adventure books on 1980’s, and when we have more info, we will let you know.
On the personal front.
Kid 1 is gainfully employed. Yay! That means we are watching Nyke, her doggie, for a little bit to let her get acclimated to her new schedule. I took a picture of the squad for you. We are missing the other grand-dog Artha, but other than that, they are all there.
As an aside, see that dirty floor? The office still hasn’t been fixed, so that will be on the agenda: get the office wall repaired, get it cleaned, and also get the replacement garbage disposal for the kitchen. I haven’t cleaned the house for a bit, so it’s badly in need of vacuuming. Also tomorrow is a physical and the closing with official signing of everything. Hopefully, we can close on the house and that will be that.
Well, I’m back to Hugh and the horrible battle. See you later.
