Long time, no blog post...
I'm here with a quick update to let you know what's going on "behind the scenes." Let's go title by title:
Laugh or Death: the sixth Lexi Graves mystery is currently with my editor who will whip the manuscript into shape. We anticipate a release date of August 30th and are working with some retailers to get pre-orders listed now. Check these out at iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and Kobo. It doesn't look like we'll get an Amazon pre-order for this title unfortunately.
Personally, I love a pre-order button so I can get the books I want, when I want, and without forgetting the release date! Until then, you can get a sneak peek at the unedited first chapter here.
Endless Magic: the sixth and final (aww!) Stella Mayweather book has completed the planning phase and I'm now writing. I know many of you are very eager to find out just what happened to Stella! I can promise a lot of exciting stuff is going to happen, so keep your fingers crossed that your fave characters make it! (Eek!) The cover will be commissioned shortly. The release date is anticipated for December. We're also working with pre-orders at iBookstore, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and Kobo for this one.
Seventh Lexi Graves: It's titled and the cover is commissioned so I'm excited to see what our fabulous cover designer comes up with for this one. The planning needs a little fleshing out but I have begun writing. Again, working on pre-orders with the aforementioned stores in anticipation of a December release date.
Paperbacks: All the Lexi Graves Mysteries are available in paperback via Amazon and Createspace. However, the latest two Stella Mayweathers (Magic Rising and Arcane Magic) have yet to be released in paperback. We're looking into this and hope to get these out within the next couple of months along with having the print covers designed. Can't wait to have them on my bookshelf!
Omnibus editions: Lexi Graves Mysteries Volume One is currently only available at Amazon but is being rolled out to iBookstore, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo with a release date of September 2014. Volume Two is due out via all retailers during December 2014.
Stella Mayweather Collection One is out already, and Collection Two will be made available January 2015.
A quick note about omnibus editions: each one contains three consecutive books from a series and are only available as ebooks due to the contraints of printing books of this size. There is a discount in price for purchasing an omnibus versus purchasing each book separately.
Other titles: I have an exciting trilogy planned but it's unlikely I'll be able to start work on this until December 2014 so keep an eye out on the coming soon page for news next year.
