Hello! It’s been a while since I updated. Sorry about that. I’ve been in my two caves working my butt off…or more specifically, keeping my butt in the office chair writing Demons of Bourbon Street and moving it to my studio chair getting ready for Bead and Button. If you’re in or around Milwaukee this coming weekend, head on over to the convention center for some amazing bead and jewelry browsing. I’ll be in booth number 1238.
In other news, Witches of Bourbon Street is now available in audio book. You can find it on Audible, iTunes, and Amazon. I’ve had a lot of people ask about Demons of Bourbon Street. It should be out in September in ebook and print. It takes a couple of months for audio production, so hopefully by December. The wonderful Traci Odem will be narrating again.
I am sad to say the launch of Witches of Bourbon Street is going to be delayed a week or so. It’s going through one more final round of proofreading before I send it off into the world.
I know y’all want a quality product, so bear with me. But I did want to share the proof copy with you. It just showed up today!
Here are both books side by side.
What do you think?
Also, I still haven’t drawn the winner from my email list for a signed copy of Witches of Bourbon Street. If you haven’t signed up yet, go here. If you’re already on the list, no need to do anything. I will draw the winner right after I approve the final product with my printer. Then I will put up the link to pre-order. (That will likely be next week).
Good news! The proof of Witches of Bourbon Street has been printed and should be shipped overnight to me today. If all goes well I’ll be placing my first order tomorrow. Woot!
Which means, tomorrow I will be randomly choosing a winner from my mailing list to win a free signed copy. If you are already signed up for my mailing list, no need to do anything. If not. Go here to sign up. I only send newsletters announcing new releases. I do not send spam, nor do I share your email addresses with anyone.
After I announce the winner, I will add the pre-order link to the website. Good luck!
P.S. The e-versions are being formatted now. I will be sure to let you know when they go live.
Due to a lovely New Years head and chest cold, I lost a good week and a half of production. But Witches of Bourbon Street is at the final proofreader as I type. I’m supposed to get it back any moment now . Then it gets one last comb through before I send it off to Lisa Liddy at The Printed Page to format it. I swear, it’s coming soon. The trumpets are on standby to make the formal announcement.
As I’ve already announced, Witches of Bourbon Street is off with the editor. But the cover is done, and I finally have the book description ready for you. Here you go. Have a fabulous holiday!
Coming January 2012!
Jade Calhoun was never fond of her empath abilities. Now she’s found out she has another gift she’d rather not unwrap—magic. But when her mentor, Bea, becomes gravely ill and insists Jade’s the only one who can help, she’s forced to embrace her witchy side.
It’s too bad she spent a decade shunning the magical community and never learned to harness her powers. Because time’s run out. A trapped spirit has revealed a clue to Jade’s long-lost mother. The resident angel has gone rogue and disappeared with Jade’s boyfriend, Kane. And if that wasn’t enough, her ex appears to be possessed.
To save any of them, Jade will need to find a way to control her inner white witch—without succumbing to black magic. Otherwise she’ll lose everything…including her soul.
Ahh, long time no type. Well, that isn’t actually true. I’ve been typing my fingers away in the dead of the night working on Witches of Bourbon Street. I’m pleased to announced I’ve sent the manuscript off to the editor and hopefully, if all goes well, it will be released sometime in January. Yay!
I’ll be sure to update you on when it’s available in all outlets. But in case you’d rather get an email, go ahead and sign up here. I only send emails out for new releases and discounts. So don’t worry about me spamming up your email box. That isn’t my thing. If I have information or ramblings to share, you can find it all right here.
Merry Christmas! I hope to get back to regular blogging now that the latest book has flown the coop.
So I guess it isn’t a secret I’ve been crazy busy. My poor blog. I haven’t written a Business of Lampworking article in a few weeks. I haven’t posted Book recommendation Thursday is over a month. And my online participation has been noticeably lacking in my favorite haunts.
You see, this upcoming weekend is Bead Fest Texas. I leave Thursday and will be back Monday. Speaking of Bead Fest, if you’re anywhere near the Dallas/Arlington area, here is a coupon you can print to get in free. I will be in booth 611.
Anyway, I had a show in Philly at the end of August, and Hottimes on the Mountain at the end of Sept. The combined events severely depleted my bead show stock. So the last four weeks I have been scrambling to catch up.
In addition I’ve been working feverishly on Witches of Bourbon Street, the second in my Jade Calhoun trilogy.
So you can imagine how excited I am to have some girlfriend time. My good friend, Susan Sheehan is arriving today in about three hours now. We’re picking her up from the New Orleans airport, taking her out on the town, and then spending the next few days playing in the studio before we drive on out of here for the show. Susan will be in both 609 right next to me, and our other dear friend Lisa Liddy will be in booth 607 right next to Susan. It’s gonna be a great show!
