After months of asking on Twitter as well as on this blog, I eventually confided in a friend about my growing frustration.
15 minutes of brainstorming later and I had not only the title for this book, but for the rest of the planned books in the Angel’s Voice series.
It’s the same friend who helped me fix some typography issues when I was redesigning covers for the series. I might just have to start paying her…
Of course we’re continuing the ‘sound’-theme from the earlier books and naming the fifth book ‘Broken Melody’. Let’s hope I don’t jinx the book by naming it. The writing has been going remarkably well and I would love to break my habit of taking years to finish books.
And yes, I know some of you will be disappointed that the book won’t be called ‘CSI: Var’nori’, but it’s very important to remember that I’m often quite sleep-deprived when I write blog posts and that I never should have shared my weird working title with you to begin with. It’s bad enough that it’s still kind of stuck in my own head…
If you’re going to the Danish pop culture convention KoyoCon this year, you can say hello to me.
Because I’ll be there.
Like I have been every year…
Since the convention was founded…
Okay, so this announcement isn’t really a surprise, is it…? But it’s still good news!
This year, I won’t be sitting in the Artist Alley-area, but instead be having my author table in the dealer hall right next to the NerdVault booth, which I’m helping out at. So not only will you be able to buy books, you can also get a wig and some Worbla while you’re at it. Everybody wins.
Of course, the reason why I’m especially excited this year is because it’s the first convention I’m going to after not only releasing my new book, but also rebranding the old ones! I have a feeling this year’s sales pitch will be along the lines of “Sure, the stories are fine… but look how pretty the covers are!”
I’m telling you, if you end up at my table, just smile and nod like you would when dealing with any other crazy person. It’s the safest solution for everyone.
Oh, and KoyoCon 2019 will be held November 8.-10. if you want to join us!
Keep an eye on my Facebook page as well. I will probably be hosting a KoyoCon-related giveaway soon. Free stuff, y’all.
It took me way too long, but I’m happy to finally announce a release date for Ghostly Scream.
You’re not getting a lot of warning: Ghostly Scream will be out as ebook on October 17!
If you want the paperback, it’s already available here.
They might be better dressed, but mages can be just as fickle as demons . . .
Disavowed by the clergy, Selissa is left to fend for herself when her actions lead her to become a prisoner of Var’nori. She is given the choice between staying locked up within the walls of the mage city or accepting to become an apprentice of the secretive magister, Feryll. It’s really not much of a choice. Because while her life has changed a lot over the last few years, one thing is still very much true: Selissa really, really doesn’t like mages.
Since I’ve been so slow with everything, I’m going ahead and doing the cover reveal at the same time. The first reaction I got on this went something along the lines of “I love it, but mostly because it screams ‘vampire’!”, so I feel obligated to say that this book features no vampires whatsoever. I’m very sorry if I got your hopes up.
Without further delay, here you have the deceptively vampire-y cover of Ghostly Scream:
As I mentioned I have been working on new revised editions of Resounding Echo, Silent Sound and Quiet Whisper prior to the release of Ghostly Scream. Those new editions will be released over the next couple of weeks, so keep an eye out!
What about Ghostly Scream, you might ask? Well, come back here on Thursday where the release date (which is soon!) will be announced.
In the meantime, feast your eyes on these pretties and tell me what you think of the new look.
Also, sorry: It's not the tasty kind of cookies. We're all out of those. Alrighty!
