Yesterday, I received the first paperback copies of the new editions of my books.
I picked up the package at the post office.
I got home.
I put the package on the table.
Then I proceeded to circle said package for half an hour, acting like it might go off and kill everyone (everyone being me and my owl) if I were to open it.
I then opened the package because I was running late for an appointment and I didn’t have time to be scared of inanimate objects.
Somewhat anticlimatically, nothing blew up.
While not as bright as their digital counterparts (as expected, since ink has its limitations), the covers were still beautiful. The interior was gorgeous, with the choice of fonts and text size having hit the mark, and the title page I spent 3 hours obsessing over being worth every minute even though no one besides me is going to care.
But don’t worry: I hate the spines. They got a good talking to where I explained to them that their clashing colors were unacceptable and changes would have to be made.
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!
