As you probably figured out by now, SWEEP IN PEACE, the second volume in the Innkeeper Chronicles is up on the website. We are going to try to follow the same format as CLEAN SWEEP, with the rough draft being posted in chunks online, followed by an ebook release. As a reminder, the audiobook of CLEAN SWEEP is currently available for preorder and will be released on March 19th.
Wicked Scribes has created a great character guide to Innkeeper Series, so if you have forgotten who some of the people are, it’s a good place to catch up. I’m really impressed with their website overall. They do a really good summary of the current UF and PNR.
If you’re in the market for more free online reading, Grace Draven currently has an online story. It’s titled Radiance, it starts with a wedding, and parts 1-3 are already up.
Also Elizabeth Hunter is posting a serial novella called The Bronze Blade. According to her it’s not a happy story, but if you are a fan of the Elemental World series and you want to know more about Tenzin, this might be right up your alley.
In other big news, Patricia Briggs’ new Mercy novel, NIGHT BROKEN, has been released this week to stellar reviews. Patty has posted some author comments on her site regarding this book, so if you are sucker for inside information, here is a link.
We get a lot of emails asking us to write a follow up to this story or that story. We are very glad that you guys enjoyed a Mere Formality or Alphas Origins, but sometimes there is just no urge to return to the world. Mentally you’re just done with it. If I think about Kate’s or Nevada’s world, the stories began to spiral up like grape vines, almost on their own. Alphas or Kozlov universe, not as much.
But I wanted to keep you in the loop as to what’s happening:
Innkeeper 2 has been started. We are hoping to end by October and release it in time for Christmas if possible.
MAGIC BREAKS, Book 7 and Not Final (because for some reason people keep asking us if it is) has gone through the copyedit, so we should move on to the galley stage. We are still on target for July 29, 2014 release.
BURN FOR ME, Book 1 in Hidden Legacy series, has been through the first editorial pass. We are working on implementing those suggestions now. Our editor, Erika Tsang, is quite awesome. If her name sounds familiar, it’s also because she edits Jeaniene Frost, so our book is in really good hands.
Once BURN FOR ME edits are finished, we are moving on to Jim and Dali novella, which will hopefully show Jim in a somewhat less serious light. After that, we begin work on Magic #8, tentatively titled Magic Please Make Money, We Might Have A Kid in College Soon.
Well, that’s about it. I’m off to work.
