I Need Your Input

I took a week off to visit with my mother in August and then went camping for a weekend. It was a wonderful relaxing time, but it meant that I had a 3-week marathon of editing to get ready for publishing. It was grueling, but I made it! Grimalkins Don't Purr is officially off to the proofreader. Launch day is September 23rd! To celebrate, this weekend I'm taking Maggie, my hell hound in training, to the annual puppy plunge at our local outdoor pool. Then on Sunday, my daughter and I are going to goat yoga! I love goats, and this is something I've wanted to do for a while. Can't wait! I suspect there won't be much yoga going on.



In other news, I want to do another contest to celebrate launch day for Grimalkins. However, since I live in Canada, shipping is ridiculously expensive. I would love to do several prizes, but that’s just not possible from here. Also, many people reacted to the little swag items in the last contest. So I was thinking, instead of one large prize of books and gifts, what if I did several smaller prizes? Or maybe one large prize that could ship directly from Amazon?


How to decide? Well, I thought I’d ask you! Here’s a one-question poll:

It won't take more than a minute to respond. Let me know what kind of prize pack you'd like to see next.

Dervishes Don't Dance Audiobook Now Pre-ordering.

What I really like about pre-ordering books is that they miraculously appear on my reader or listening device of choice on launch day. It's always a little surprise that makes me smile. We all need more of those kinds of surprises these days. So pay yourself forward, and pre-order a little surprise for September 23rd.

A Free Valkyrie Bestiary Tale

I've been sitting on this surprise for a while, but I can finally give it a big shout out!

There's a new Valkyrie Bestiary tale in town and for a limited time, you can download it free!

The Last Door to Underhill

A Valkyrie Bestiary Tale

In the last hours of the Flood Wars, a fae princess makes the ultimate sacrifice to save the human world. Leighna, a refugee of the human war, returns to Underhill with a true demon on her heels. With only her old arcane arts tutor and a strange dryad as company, she must close every door between Terra and Underhill. But can she find the strength to abandon her homeland and become a permanent exile? The Last Door to Underhill is a Valkyrie Bestiary tale, set in the chaotic days after the Flood Wars, when magic is the only rule of law. It takes place about fifty years before the events in Dragons Don’t Eat Meat.

The Wolf Pack is running free again, you can find the Last Door to Underhill free from the pack along with a hand-picked bunch of other great paranormal and Urban Fantasy books.
