Broken Melody is out today, which means that you can now get it as both ebook and paperback!

Happy Release Day to me!

I’m celebrating on a beach on Crete right now, but that does not mean it wouldn’t make everything just a little better if I see some numbers on the sales report when I get time to check in.

Is that enough of a hint or do I need to try harder?

Go buy the book.

You can get it at Amazon and a lot of other places. I expect even more vendors will follow in the coming days, so there should be plenty of options.

For now, I will enjoy a well-earned break in the Greek sun. But I look forward to coming back to the online community I have grossly neglected over the past couple of months, so don’t completely give up on me!

…Now go buy my book.

Broken Melody Releases on 10th September

Yep, Broken Melody will be out on 10th September as both ebook and paperback.

Hopefully some of you out there are looking forward to reading the fifth book in the Angel’s Voice series… because someone has to pay for all the caffeine that’s gone into writing it. Really, I was basically vibrating through the last few chapters.

Dangerous caffeine levels aside, I’m really excited to get this book out there. I’m on a roll and already halfway through the first draft of the aixth book in the series, and spoilers, I somehow managed to sneak a dragon into the plot.

I really love dragons, guys.

Anyway! 10th September, mark your calendars. Dragons, people.

Smashwords’ Summer/Winter Sale 2020

It’s time for another Smashwords’ Summer/Winter sale!

For the entire month of July, the ebook store Smashwords will have thousands of discounted and free ebooks.

I hope all of you in the Northern Hemisphere are enjoying the weather and getting a lot of reading done, and not – like me – up to your ears in thistles while trying to weed the garden. Summer does have its disadvantages.

But it’s all worth it when you get to sit outside in the evening sun with a good book and a cold drink! My library is well-stocked for once, but that won’t stop me from checking out every book sale I come across. You never know when you might need those 57 new books…

Of course I’m an author as well as a reader, so as always, my own books are to be found among the discounted titles on Smashwords. I’m not telling you to go download them, but…

You should go download them.

All kidding aside, I’m truly hoping to find some great deals this year. As you probably know, I’m fond of Fantasy and Horror, but I might give some other genres a try if I see something interesting.

Readers, feel free to post your favorite Summer/Winter Sale finds in the comments!

Cover Reveal – Broken Melody

Broken Melody Michelle Louring Cover

As promised, here you have the cover for my upcoming book Broken Melody.

As it’s the fifth in the Angel’s Voice series, it obviously matches the covers of the other books. We’re just going orange this time.

It was pointed out to me at a convention that I had the colors of all the Hogwarts houses, except for Hufflepuff, and several Hufflepuffers (Hufflers? Puffers…? I’m not sure what they call themselves) found this completely unacceptable. However, I did not actually have a yellow version of the artwork, so I’m hoping orange will do.

(I checked my own set of Harry Potter books – there’s no yellow book either, but there ARE blue, green, red and orange…)

I’m quite sure I have my arguments in order if I get cornered at the next convention. I can hear you laughing, but geeks – even the nice ones – are surprisingly fierce when they feel wronged. One memorable game of World of Warcraft Trivial Pursuit once led to me getting beaten up by prop weapons made from thermoplastic and I have been tackled by cosplayers more times than I’d like to think about.

I bet you thought this post was about a book cover, huh? But nope, it’s really about why I wear footwear suitable for running when I sell books at conventions…

New Cover – Song of Angels

Book Cover Song of Angels

I’m struggling with insomnia lately and my brain is using the extra time coming up with design ideas I didn’t ask for. I hadn’t planned on making a new cover for the ebook collection of the three first books in the Angel’s Voice Series, Song of Angels, but my insomnia-fueled design craze turned out results too good to hide away on a hard drive, so… here we are, I guess.

Behold the result of my brain being idle:

Book Cover Song of Angels

I have in fact already finished the covers for my next three books and the next ebook collection, but my hyperactive brain is not willing to stop working on designs just because I have run out of books, so I’m currently mentally making maps of everything and I might soon go insane from trying to remember where I placed the city gates in Var’nori at 2 am in the morning.

I’m strongly considering taking up alcoholism.

What do you think of the new cover?
