ANNOUNCEMENTS: Kobo Sale, Prophet Report, NW Book Festival... #books

A bunch of quick announcements ~
***

KOBO SALE - 30% OFF SELECTED TITLES

There's a July sale happening on KOBO right now, for those who are interested. Everything is 30% off that's being featured in the sale...

Promo Code: TGIFSAVE30
Sale Page: http://www.kobo.com/tgifsale

I've got two of my collections there, I think under "boxed sets" -
ALLIE'S WAR SEASON ONE: EPISODES 1-8 and

ALLIE'S WAR SEASON TWO: EPISODES 9-17

Enjoy! : )

***

PROPHET UPDATE ~ 

In other news, the second edit of PROPHET: ALLIE'S WAR EPISODES 32-36 just went to the beta readers, so I'm in kind of the nail-biting stage to hear back what they think of it.

I never have any clue with these books, I swear...

Anyway, unless something crazy happens, I'm still planning to get EPISODE 32 out on August 1st.

I've been promised I'll get feedback on that section in the next few days (possibly even today), so should still make that deadline. I'm actually not too worried about that segment of the book anyway, as it's already been through a fair few edits...

So...yay! I'm really excited about this book. I wrote one of the funnest (and perhaps anticipated?) scenes I've ever done with Allie and Revik towards the end of this book, and there are lots of new characters and interesting developments.

I hope everyone enjoys reading it as much as I did writing it...but then, that's always the hope with this series, since I love these characters so much. :)

***

NW BOOK FESTIVAL ~

Just a quick note and reminder that I'll be signing and selling books at the 6th Annual NW Book Festival tomorrow at Pioneer Square in downtown Portland, OR! (at super-cheap, below-Amazon prices!).

I'll have candy, pithy comments (well, okay, probably not)...a few nonsensical blatherings (this is far more likely)...balloons...free ebooks for every paperback I sell...little poster-y things and so on...

And there are TONS of other authors there, too, so even if you want to give my table a wide berth, you should come on down if you're in the Portland area and check out all of the yummy, yummy books...

Or just come down and say hi!

Or I'll end up eating all the candy, and that never works out well...

This is the place - only sans people (there should be more there tomorrow)
Addendum on this one ~ just realized I wasn't listed on the NW Book Festival website for some reason. Just wanted to provide more logistics ~

The 6th Annual NW Book Festival
Saturday, July 26th, 2014
11am to 5:00pm
Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland, OR
(corner of SW Sixth Ave. and SW Morrison.)


I'll be at TABLE 14 ~


Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Just a quick announcement - I have a new collection out today, so I wanted to let everyone know it's available before I go back to my editing cave on PROPHET: Allie's War Episodes 32-36... : )

COVER REVEAL ~ Nine by Night Multiauthor Bundle of Kickass Urban Fantasy Chicks

Hey, everyone, so I actually have TWO pieces of exciting news today!

First off ~

Cover Reveal - NINE BY NIGHT
I have a shiny, brand new, multi-author bundle coming out at the beginning of next month called Nine by Night, that's now available for pre-order on KOBO, SMASHWORDS and soon to be on iBOOKS, as well. You can also find and add it on GOODREADS, as well...or, if you're a book blogger and want to review an ARC, it's also available on NETGALLEY.

Up until now, I haven't been able to promote on here, but this weekend we're kicking things off with a cover reveal, to show everyone our shiny, new cover by Damonza...

(hope you like it!)
https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22710725-nine-by-night

About NINE BY NIGHT

"From vampires to empaths, to the grim reaper himself, this bundle will keep you on the edge of your seat. I dare you to try and put it down!" SHANNON MAYER - author of THE RYLEE ADAMSON NOVELS and THE NEVERMORE TRILOGY

Nine books. Nine bestselling authors. Nine heroines that take names—and chances—while confronting dark foes, whether by force of arms or magic, that threaten their entire world.
Over two-thousand pages of epic reading await! Let the adventures begin.

From NYT and USA Today Bestselling Author, SM REINE, WITCH HUNT –– Shaman on the run. Isobel Stonecrow speaks with the dead...for the right price. She brings closure to the bereaved and heals broken hearts. But when she resurrects someone for the wrong client, she ends up on the OPA's most wanted list.

From NYT and USA Today Bestselling author, CJ ELLISSON, DEATH’S SERVANT –– Jonathan Winchester has clashed with his werewolf alpha one too many times. He returns to Virginia to find work and meets a young waitress, Raine. As their relationship progresses, Jon's embroiled in more intrigue than he bargained for and a danger bigger than he can handle.

From bestselling author, LINDSAY BUROKER, TORRENT –– When Delia chose to major in archaeology, she imagined herself as the female Indiana Jones of the Southwest. She didn't imagine herself stumbling across decapitated bodies in old mine shafts or learning that monsters are real…

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22710725-nine-by-night From bestselling author, ANTHEA SHARP, SPARK –– What if a high-tech game was a gateway to the treacherous Realm of Faerie? Superstar gamer Spark Jaxley's life might look easy, but she's part of an elite few who guard a shocking secret; the Realm of Faerie exists, and its dark magic is desperate for a foothold in the mortal world.

From bestselling authors BOONE BRUX and CJ ELLISSON, DEATH TIMES TWO –– The V V Inn has a ghost problem. New grim reaper, Lisa Carron, accepts the job. She quickly learns the hotel is full of the dearly departed—and she’s working for vampires. Throw in Asa, a young vamp hot enough to melt the Arctic ice, and Lisa realizes she’s way out of her element.

From bestselling author, JC ANDRIJESKI, ROOK: ALLIE’S WAR EPISODES 1-4 –– Like most humans, Allie distanced herself from Seers, a race of human-like beings discovered on Earth. Yanked out of her life by the mysterious Revik, Allie finds out her blood may not be as “human” as she thought, the world is nothing like it appears to be...and she has more in common with Seers than she ever wanted to believe.

From bestselling author, ANNIE BELLET, JUSTICE CALLING –– Gamer. Nerd. Sorceress. Jade Crow lives a quiet life running her comic book and game store in Wylde, Idaho. After twenty-five years fleeing from a powerful sorcerer who wants to eat her heart and take her powers, quiet suits her just fine. Surrounded by friends who are even less human than she is, Jade figures she's finally safe. As long as she doesn't use her magic…

From bestselling author, JESI LEA RYAN, ARCADIA’S GIFT –– Teenager Arcadia (Cady) Day’s family tragedy unleashes a hidden power. After experiencing what can only be called a psychic episode, her home life crumbles. As her emotional control slips away, Cady begins to suspect that her first psychic episode was just the beginning…

From Urban Fantasy author, KARA LEGEND, WILD NIGHT ROAD –– One innocent hex sets off a chain reaction of trouble among the shifters of the Kinraven that threatens war between werewolves, seraphim and witches. Lilith Darke will do anything to be free of her seraphim master. All hell breaks loose when rival packs face off only to discover a new, deadly threat that will take all their magick to survive.

NINE BY NIGHT releases 8/03/2014 on Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and other e-book retailers.

The second piece of news I have, that I'll just mention briefly down here ~

I JUST (as in at 2am last night, ha) finished the rough for PROPHET: ALLIE'S WAR BOOK EIGHT, which should be going to the first readers on Monday.

I have a few more little things I want to clean up on it, which is why I'm giving myself two more days to do that, but the main draft is finished, and is now getting into the editing phase for reals. I'm still planning to release the first episode on August 1st, with subsequent releases of each episode after that every two weeks. Of course, if my editor disagrees, that will be pushed back, but I'm really, really hoping she doesn't disagree, because I want to make that date happen!

I've also decided that each episode will also be 99 cents until the full book comes out, which will be exactly two weeks after the final episode.

So they will all be the discounted price for at least two weeks, some of them quite a bit longer...

So...wow. Yeah. I'm happy that one is done. It was a pretty full-on book to write, truthfully, for a lot of reasons, but I'm really excited about how it came out, and I hope you are, too!

Until then...multi-author bundle! Multi-author bundle!

And new Allie's War Early Years Collection coming out tomorrow, so that's the soonest one of all...but I'll wait and do a real post about that one tomorrow. : )

The Allie's War Series: NEW RELEASE ~ Allie's War Season Three: Episodes 18-27 #PNR #UF #NewRelease

Quick announcement and reblog from the ALLIE'S WAR website...

The Allie's War Series: NEW RELEASE ~ Allie's War Season Three: Episodes 18-27

Full reblog is below...

***

Quick announcement on here, while I finish up a strawberry smoothie before I get back to the writing side of things... : )

Season Three is out, as of yesterday...see blurb and links, below. All of the links are live but the iBooks one at this point, since I still distribute those through another vendor, so there's a short delay before Apple gets their hands on it.

Like Seasons 1 and 2, which I have listed under the "Collections" tab on here, this one is also priced at $7.99, so it's a great discount if you like reading great big doorstoppers all as a single manuscript.

They each end up being around 1100 pages, and roughly 400,000 - 450,000 words, so yeah. A lot of words. But then, these books tend to go that way.

In general, I'm pleased with how these are working out, but I've always had an awareness that the books chunked out in "twos" for some reason.

Anyway, enjoy! Links below, as I said...

ALLIE'S WAR SEASON THREE: 
EPISODES 18-27
The next ten episodes in the gritty, unique, new adult urban fantasy series, Allie's War, introducing Allie Taylor and her antihero guide, Dehgoies Revik.



Knight: Allie's War Episodes 18-23 - A new power is rising in the human and seer worlds, and it turns out, they may have shaped history for Allie and everyone she loves.

War: Allie's War Episodes 24-27 - Allie and Revik find themselves in the middle of the Displacement, in a locked down city and with one of their best friends now a sworn enemy.

Cover Reveal! Facelift for the ALIEN APOCALYPSE Series... #coverreveal #AlienApocalypse #Jet

New branding on the ALIEN APOCALYPSE series (formerly THE SLAVE GIRL CHRONICLES) just went up! It might not be live on all sites yet, but it should be soon...paperbacks, in particular, might take a few more days to go through.


http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005KJ4BEC/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B005KJ4BEC&linkCode=as2&tag=fightin04-20
THE CULLING (Alien Apocalypse Part I)

Jet is a 19-year-old skag, one of the humans still living free on Earth following an invasion of creatures called the Nirreth. Squatting in the ruins of Vancouver, Canada, Jet and her family eke out an existence underground, hiding from the culler ships. No one knows where the ships take the people they grab, but they never return. When a culler finds Jet, she may discover the truth the hard way.

THE ROYALS (Alien Apocalypse Part II)

Now a slave of the Nirreth Royals, Jet spends her days babysitting the heir to the alien throne and her nights training for the Rings, the Nirreth televised sport where humans navigate perilous courses, trying to stay alive. As the first female ever to run in the Rings, everyone expects Jet to die in the first round…but the way things are going, Jet will be lucky to make it to the match at all.

THE NEW ORDER (Alien Apocalypse Part III)

Jet finds herself going from slave owned by the Royals to honorary member of the Royal family, pretty much overnight. It doesn't take her long to figure out this is hardly a prize, and that her new role as Laksri's official consort is likely to get her killed. Meanwhile, Ringmaster Trazen hasn't backed off at all, and if anything, seems more determined than ever to put Jet in her place as a 'mammal' and a slave.

Hope you like the new ones! They're by the fabulous Damonza. : )

As for me, yes, I know I've been super quiet on here and social media of late. It's mostly from writing...with some tangents into editing, as well as things like this, and getting my paperbacks cleaned up a bit, since I'd found some issues with color and the like and I have an in-person event coming up at the end of this month in downtown Portland, OR.

I think all of that is more or less coming together now...so it's back to writing for me, today, again.

Hope everyone had a great Fourth of July! It's hot and very summery here, which is awesome, as far as I'm concerned.

And yes, I'm still more of a California person than an Oregon one, I'm afraid...

The Allie's War Series: Kobo Problem ~ SHIELD: Allie's War Episodes 5-8

Quick update on something that just came to my attention ~ originally posted on the Allie's War website.

The Allie's War Series: Kobo Problem ~ SHIELD: Allie's War Episodes 5-8

Full post ~

Kobo Problem ~ SHIELD: Allie's War Episodes 5-8 Not Showing Up for Sale #AlliesWar #urbanfantasy

Hey, quick thing - I just found out that SHIELD: Allie's War Episodes 5-8, isn't showing up for sale on Kobo for some reason. I'm 99% sure it's just a technical glitch of some kind, since the same thing happened (with the same book) one other time, and I was assured they didn't pull it for any reaso.

Either way, I just wrote the fine people on Kobo, so I'm working on getting it fixed!

In the meantime - huge apologies! They're usually great about this stuff, so I'm sure it will be put to rights soon. With the time difference it probably won't be fixed until tomorrow (Friday) at the earliest, but I'll update you if it looks like it's going to take longer than that for some reason.

Thanks - and again, apologies to all Kobo shoppers!

(and thanks SO MUCH to Maria, who wrote me to let me know!)

The Allie's War Series: NEW RELEASE! Allie's War Season Two: Episodes 9-17 #newrelease #AlliesWar

Just a quick re-post from the Allie's War Website...announcing the release of ALLIE'S WAR SEASON TWO: Episodes 9-17.

The Allie's War Series: NEW RELEASE! Allie's War Season Two: Episodes 9-17

Here's the full post, transcribed below...

*

Just a quick update post - as a reminder, I've starting releasing the Allie's War books in "Seasons," in addition to the longer books and episodes. As I said on here before, funnily enough, the larger books themselves have always kind of strangely fallen into larger arc, 2-book sets, without my even planning it that way (well, not consciously, anyway).

So Rook - Shield formed one of those sets, Sword - Shadow the next, Knight - War the next...and now Bridge - Prophet seem to be following (more or less) the same pattern.

So two weeks ago, I released ALLIE'S WAR SEASON ONE: Episodes 1-8, as the first of these. This week, I'm releasing ALLIE'S WAR SEASON TWO: Episodes 9-17.

Of course, I'm also doing this as a way to give people options to buy - I'm pricing the 2-book sets at $7.99 for now, which is a pretty good discount compared to buying the books individually at $4.99 each. It's an even better deal, if you look at buying each of the episodes individually. : )

So here it is - SEASON TWO - with cover, blurb and buy links...

ALLIE'S WAR SEASON TWO: 
EPISODES 9-17

The world is dying. Everyone feels it, and yet, no one knows.
They said that when the end was near, a Bridge would come, and lead them out of the darkness of that dying world.
Allie’s life was relatively normal…
Until Revik showed up.
And told her she was that Bridge.


ALLIE’S WAR: SEASON TWO (Episodes 9-17) ~ The next nine episodes in the gritty, unique, new adult urban fantasy series, Allie's War, introducing Allie Taylor and her antihero guide, Dehgoies Revik.



Sword: Allie's War Episodes 9-12 - Allie's newest enemy just might be her own husband, as he starts a human and seer war in an attempt to free his people once and for all.



Shadow: Allie's War Episodes 13-17 - A new power is rising in the human and seer worlds, and it turns out, they may have shaped history for Allie and everyone she loves.

NOOK

*Not all of the links are live yet, but I'll add to these when I can!

As for me, writing away as usual - working on Prophet, the next big book in the series.

Hope you're all having a lovely Friday - and happy weekend to all!

COVER REVEAL ~ Jack Dervish, Super Spy #kidsbooks #kids #spykids

Just a quick note on a cover change....for my middle grade / YA / children's pen name...

It may end up being a placeholder, but I REALLY didn't like the one that had been on there before, so at least this one fits the vibe of the series better...

Anyway, I know I haven't been on here much, but kind of a busy few weeks, mostly with writing, but also with stuff like the below.

Also, as an aside, I'm going to have some shiny new covers for the Alien Apocalypse series to show on here soon, as well...ones I did NOT do myself, but hired out for, using a professional designer with tons of bestselling credits.

The test prints so far have been gorgeous, so I'm really excited about those. : )

*Edited - I ended up tweaking the title font a bit.

 
JACK DERVISH, SUPER SPY
by Hunter T. Castle

Jack Dervish was just four-years-old when the nasty incident took place at 74 Eaton Place and his super-spy parents vanished. Now Jack is twelve, and after years of living in his parents’ super-spy lair, training in every manner of super-spy skills, he’s decided to attend school. After all, how can he foil the international crime syndicate if he can’t pass as a normal, youngish Londoner?

Unfortunately, Jack quickly catches the attention of the Homeland Security Office, along with the meanest bullies at St. John’s Preparatory School. His only hope lies in his new friends, Isobel, William and Squid, and the super spy skills Jack never bothered to test…at least not against actual people.

Action. Adventure. Romance. Will Jack manage to find his parents, save his friends and win the girl? Or will the evil mastermind turn him into an enemy of the state? A funny, quirky story with an unforgettable new hero.


(and here is the paperback, below...)
