Bloodline is now available for your reading pleasure! But before I get to that, I’d like to say thank you. Without your support, this book–this series–would never have come about. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for allowing me to continue writing the stories I love. I truly have the best readers in the world.
Also, since I’ve been asked about the audio, I wanted to say Julian will most likely start recording at the end of the month, which probably translates to an early-to-mid December release. If you are looking for print, the book is available on Createspace and should be on Amazon by tomorrow.
Between his bullying father and dissolute brother, Percival Endicott Whyborne has quite enough problematic family members to deal with. So when his sister returns to Widdershins asking for help solving the mystery of a derelict ship, Whyborne is reluctant to get involved. Until, that is, a brutal murderer strikes, leaving Whyborne and his lover Griffin no choice but to take the case.
The investigation leads them deep into a conspiracy of blackmail, murder, and darkest sorcery. But worst of all are the secrets held within the family itself, one of which will destroy everything Whyborne believed to be true, not only about his family, but about himself.
The charity anthology Another Place in Time releases today! Filled with historical goodies from the likes of KJ Charles, Tamara Allen, Kaje Harper, Joanna Chambers, and Aleksandr Voinov, this anthology was put together by the wonderful Susan Lee. When the invitation to participate landed in my mailbox, I realized it would be the perfect opportunity to indulge in another Whyborne & Griffin short story. “Carousel” takes place between the events of Stormhaven and Necropolis, and relates how Griffin came to the decision to search for his brothers. Of course, there’s also plenty of magic and excitement!
Other stories include:
“Office Romance” by Tamara Allen
“Introducing Mr. Winterbourne” by Joanna Chambers
“The Ruin of Gabriel Ashleigh” by KJ Charles
“Unfair in Love and War” by Kaje Harper
“Deliverance” by Aleksandr Voinov
Along with a foreword written by Alex Beecroft. All proceeds from the purchase of this anthology will be donated to AllOut.org.
Below is my schedule for GRL, but first I wanted to let everyone know I’m having another informal hangout in the bar area on Friday, October 17, from 5:00-6:30 (I figure this will give people plenty of time to change for Casino Royale at 8). I’ve created a Facebook event if you’d like to sign up there as a reminder, but if you don’t have FB that’s fine–just let me know in the comments below so I have a vague idea of how many people to expect. Like last year and my room party at Rainbow Con, I’ll have some special swag just for you–and this year it’s going to be epic, so I really hope you can come if you’re attending GRL. You can also pick up your preorders from me during this time (let me know if you’ve preordered and need other arrangements, though!).
Where to find me at GRL:
Thursday, October 16:
12:50-1:30 pm – Author Lounge Event in Trillium III
Friday, October 17:
5:00-6:30 pm – The bar!
Saturday, October 18:
8:30-10:00 am – Unspeakable Love: Gay Romance of the Past, with Charlie Cochet and Kate McMurray
2:00-5:00 pm – Featured Author Booksigning
And of course I’ll be roaming around otherwise, so stop me to say hi any time!
In other news, if you haven’t read Widdershins, it’s temporarily on sale for only $0.99 at Amazon, ARe, Smashwords, and B&N!
The third SPECTR audiobook, Reaper of Souls, is now available for your listening pleasure! I tell you, my narrator Brad Langer gave me shivers when I listened to the final two scenes (if you’ve read the book you know which ones I’m talking about!). You can get it on Audible or Amazon, with iTunes coming as soon as it works its way through their system. Or listen to a clip below!
