We haven't done a giveaway in a while, and this seems like an excellent time do it. Why, you ask? Well, I'm glad you asked, even if you didn't ask. Last week we went to a Patricia Briggs signing, and now I have an extra signed copy of Dead Heat to give away! Oh, and a mini-Panda from Squishable.com in honor of Happy the ghost panda. Be sure to enter below!

In other news, we're putting the final touches on a new novelette that will appear in the upcoming When Destiny Calls anthology. It takes place in the aftermath of This Broken World, and follows Cornelius's apprentice, Beth.

We're also now editing the steampunk serial some of you may have seen me rambling about. It's a fun story filled with giant insects and steam powered gadgetry and I can't wait to share it with you all. Oh, and just wait until you see the cover art ... :D

CMC15 was a wild ride of meeting some amazing new-to-me authors, bloggers, and readers. Seeing some of my old friends was icing on the cake.

And the other panels! I was on several, and got to observe several more. Just fantastic. They were serious at times, hilarious at others, and full of more information than I can possibly remember. The events were fantastic too, particularly Damon Suede's infamous Cinema Craptastique performance.

I loved the intimacy of the convention. Not too big, not too small, but still busy busy busy. It's one that every fan of PNR, UF, and Fantasy should come visit. Jennifer did an amazing job.


Hildie McQueen, Tina Wainscott, and Larissa Ione. To quote Larissa, EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!

Days Gone Bad

My name is Damian Valdis Vesik. I am a necromancer. My master and I vanquished many evils in times gone by. Now, something is releasing a new evil, forcing us to hunt an enemy beyond anything I’ve faced before. Our abilities are feared and hated as much as the powers we set ourselves against. I was already busy enough with vampires, fairies, witches, Watchers, weddings, and … damn, I need a vacation.
