Join me in Des Moines this May…

Join me and my fellow authors on the 17th of May at the Des Moines Botanical Garden for Pages from the Past where I will be reading from something I wrote as a teenager (Pages from the Past – get it?) What will it be? Hard to say. It might be the short story where a little girl kills people with a hammer, or perhaps the stalking/kidnapping short, or maybe the one where the mother has locked her daughter in the attic…either way it will be over dramatic and giggly, and who doesn’t love that?

Proceeds fund a children’s creative writing class, so that later they too can look back on things they wrote as a kid!

Hope to see you there!

Tales of the Executioners: Jorick

Jorick.png

Jorick has served Malick for hundreds of years but, since marrying Velnya, he’s wearied of his duty. With a final assignment to carry out, Jorick will finally be freed to live a life of quiet and peace – a life free from fighting and death. But what he finds when he gets home will shatter all of his dreams for the future and leave him hurtling down the road to revenge.

Get it today on Smashwords with other retailers to follow!

Retiring Covers

SOG RETIRE

Starting next month (March) the hand drawn collector edition covers will officially begin retirement. I plan to do one a month, to give anyone who might need a particular book the time to budget.

Why are they going away?

It’s been five years since I introduced the “glowey” silhouette covers. In that time the industry has shifted, including what readers associate with urban fantasy. To keep up with the modern market, I’m creating new covers for all 10 books (the nine in the series as well as Patrick’s Brothers of Darkness prequel.) When I do that, I’ll shift the silhouette covers to the collector’s editions (so that readers who need those to complete their matching collection can still get them), but it means the original covers will no longer be available.

When are they going away?

NEW COLLECTOR - 600

This will be the NEW collector cover!

Shades of Gray will be the first to retire in March, so if you need/want a copy with the hand drawn covers, you’ll have to get it before then. After that it will be gone forever. You can get a copy direct from Amazon (for $7.50 plus S&H if you don’t have prime) or you can contact me to get a signed copy (Message me on FB or send me an email), though the signed copy costs more (because I have to pay double postage – once to ship to me and again to ship to you, making it $11.50 total)*. After that Legacy of Ghosts will change over in April, Ties of Blood in May, etc.

*prices for US only. No idea what International is.

So, about the new standard covers?

The new standard covers will drop one at a time (so we can truly celebrate them!) but at the faster rate of every two weeks (from March to July).  They will start at the same time; the new cover for Shades of Gray will be revealed in March with a tease before that.

So to recap:

  • The hand drawn/”people” covers are retiring one at a time.
  • Shades of Gray will retire in March, Legacy of Ghosts in April,  etc.
  • New standard edition covers will start appearing in March, and finish in July.
  • The current silhouette/”glowey sky” covers will be the new collector covers.

Questions? Comments? I know there are readers that love the old covers, but sadly nothing can last forever. So, if you still need Shades of Gray with the collector cover, be sure to grab your copy before March!
