There is so much happening at once that it's a bit overwhelming -- but entirely in a good way.
Tomorrow is Independent Bookstore Day and I'll be signing books with a bunch of other authors at Reader's Guide Bookstore in Salem, OR from 11-4. If you're in the area I'd love to see you! You can find the full details on the Facebook page. It's going to be a really fun day!
If you don't live in the area but want to participate in the Indie love then at least go to your local independent bookstore. Independent Bookstore Day is a national celebration and you can find a map of participating stores here. If there isn't an indie bookstore near you then you, first off I feel very sorry for you, but second, you can still get my newest story.
New Short Story
I have a new short story out! It's in Fiction River: No Humans Allowed. As the title suggests, all of the stories are about non-human entities. My story, When A Good Fox Goes To War, is set in 16th century Japan and is about a kitsune that gets caught between two feuding Samurai. I adore this story and I hope you do too! Click on this link to buy the ebook. The print edition will be available on Amazon soon and Reader's Guide has it in stock for tomorrow's book signing.
Yes, you read that right. My first novel, The Moonflower is coming out soon! The final touches are being put on it and it should be out in early June. Earlier today I saw the cover art that Lee Moyer created for it and it's Gorgeous!!! I'll post an official announcement with all the awesome details when I have them worked out. I know. It's cruel of me to share news like that without so much as pre-order link. That's because the the production schedule has been escalated a bit and now I'm scrambling to finish the line edits in time. But because I'm not a complete monster, here's the description:
"Getting into a Parisian art school was a dream come true for Ariana, but night terrors are disrupting her sleep, making it nearly impossible to complete her coursework, and now she faces expulsion.
When a mysterious woman gives her a pendant, promising it will solve her problems, Ariana is desperate enough to try it.
Instead of sweet dreams, it transports her to the Demos Oneiroi - the dream world of the ancient Greek gods - and thrusts her amidst a war between the gods.
Now Ariana must choose to let the gods fight amongst themselves, or risk everything to keep their feud from spilling into the real world."
The Moonflower is the first book in The Oneiroi War series and I can't wait for everyone to be able to read it!
