A Little Brady for Jay's Birthday

January 23, 2014

Well okay, I cannot actually send Jay Brady for her birthday, though I'd like to, but this is as good as it gets. It's Jay from Joyfully Jay's birthday this weekend, and Loose Id is doing an excellent sale of fifteen of her faves in her honor. PLUS, Jay's got what she loves about them listed on her site, and a giveaway. So if you haven't stopped by to wish her a happy birthday and enter, head on over.

Yeah, Riot Boy's there, and in some excellent company. (I want to recommend specific things, but then I'm just like "Oh but this one too. And this one. And and and... all of them...) I am so excited! If you haven't read it yet, here's a good excuse. It's a great place to start the Superpowered Love books because it's from the point of view of a 'sleeper', aka someone without superpowers, so as Etienne learns about superpowered secrets, so do we.

Still not sure? I know, I know, it's a big step. One thing you can do to gauge your interest risk-free is check out "Willoughby Spit". Some spoilers for Riot Boy follow, though nothing major. Major spoilers for certain things are in the story itself, but it's entirely possible to read this short first, if you don't mind that:

Since the events of Riot Boy, Brady's been loving his quiet life in Pittsburgh with Etienne. He's also been writing songs for his band, Willoughby Spit--and people are starting to sit up and take notice. A golden tour opportunity could be right around the corner... if Brady can stop panicking. Rather, if Etienne can convince him to stop panicking.

This story takes place two years after Riot Boy, the week Re-entry Burn starts.

Get "Willoughby Spit" for free:
My Box.net folder (separate zip files for mobi, epub, pdf, and htm--take whatever you like!)
Smashwords (all eBook formats)

Oh, and if you ever see me in person somewhere, be sure to ask me for one of the CDs...

Magneto comics not included >.>

Happy birthday, Jay, and thanks, Loose Id!

Sci-Fi Extravaganza~

January 3, 2014

So yesterday was National Science Fiction Day, and so LI is having a sale through midnight on the 5th to commemorate it, with a ton of Sci Fi themed books a dollar off. Woohoo! If you've never read sci-fi romance, I defffffinitely recommend giving it a shot. If you already have--hey, have a field day! 

I absolutely love it, and some of my favorite authors are on sale here. I know I talk a lot about comics, but I was also raised on Star Trek (I have an extensive collection of figurines and books that I will someday enshrine in a "Star Trek Room", I assure you), so... yeah. I love it a lot. Aliens, space pirates, werewolves... I mean you can't lose, right?

And if you've been waiting to read the very first Superpowered Love book, Equilibrium, it's part of the sale, too

Yyyyeah Loose Id has really been doing some awesome sales and incentives since they revamped the whole website for the slicker experience--and all the stuff they used to do too, like curating the 'staff picks' (Re-Entry Burn is on it for the first part of this year. *So proud*). So if you don't normally go over there, maybe put it on  your list of stops. Deals all over the place, lately. Of course, authors always love it when you buy from the publisher. We might be a liiiiiittle bit biased. Ahem.

And in other news, I am happy to report that In Distress (Superpowered Love 6--god have we come that far already?) has been submitted in its earliest form to my fabulous editor Raven, and now we shall see what comes of it. Eddie and Cal were so. much. fun to write. And after the frankly horrible year that was 2013, finishing on that note was just the thing I needed. It's a lot more in the fast-paced Equilibrium vein than the thinky Re-Entry Burn one, but part of the thing I love about writing the SL books (and for LI!) is that it gives me the freedom to mix things up like that. I hope it keeps y'all from getting bored with them, too.

So if you haven't met Eddie and Callum, definitely hop over to the In Distress page and say hi.

Back with more news soon!
