Trailer Time!

It’s the second release day for Widows of the Sun-Moon, and you know what that means!

Trailer time!

And here’s the link.

Widows Of the Sun-Moon 300 DPI

Widows of the Sun-Moon is now live wherever books are sold AND on the BSB site!

Blurb:

Naos is bored. Alone in space, life should be idyllic. No more random thoughts intruding on her brain; no bodies clogging her senses. But what is there to do besides stare at the planet below and wonder what it would feel like to be Calamity’s only god?

War between the other gods shouldn’t be too hard to start. The Storm Lord has a bad temper, and after being abandoned by Simon Lazlo, source of immortality, he’s easy to provoke. And the Sun-Moon live closely with Calamity’s plains-dwelling people and their new neighbors, a pack of humans and aliens led by the intriguing ex-soldier Cordelia Ross. With a plague ravaging their numbers, it will be easy to set them at each other’s throats.

A little war, a bit of death, and the chance to be Calamity’s only deity? It’s a game to keep even the most fickle goddess entertained.

I hope you love it as much as I do. Or else…BOOM!

 

Happy Release Day!

runner-up

Plus both books were runners-up for Best Lesbian Book! Squee! Thanks to Elisa Rainbow and all the judges. I’m still hard at work on House of Fate, and Widows of the Sun-Moon, sequel to Paladins of the Storm Lord, comes out in January. Busy busy busy! What’s everyone else been up to?

Back and Straight to Work!

I’m finally home from all my travels! Whew. Had an awesome time at Denver and Houston, though. Met a lot of hot fans. Literally. They were very attractive. And sweaty.

Now I’m back and getting my ass to work. I’ve sent in the final proofs for Coils, which will be coming your way this September.

Coils 300 DPII’ve had a lot of fun working on this book. It’s a fantasy romance with a comedic twist, which is a new one for me since I’ve never written a straight-up comedy before. I always try to incorporate a bit of comedy into everything I write. (I love me some witty banter.) But this will be the first in which I try to be funny from start to finish. I hope you laugh. Even if you don’t, lie, okay?

 

House of Fate WallpaperI’m also hard at work on House of Fate, my standalone space opera. Another first, it’s a sci-fi romance. I’ve done sci-fi with the Godfall series, but this will be a romance at heart, sort of like The Pyramid Waltz. I’ve discovered I really like yelling, “Lesbians in space!” at Pride events, and after this book comes out, it will be doubly true!

What’s everyone else been up to? Anyone else visit some Pride events in June? Anyone going on vacation this summer? Everyone else hot as balls?

Time for Denver and Houston Pride!

Come see me this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, June 18 and 19 for Denver Pride! Bold Strokes will be at booth L17, behind the main stage, across from the library.

Then come see me Saturday, June 25th at Houston Pride! You’ll see our banners flying!

I know everyone is hurting because of Orlando. I am, too. Now more than ever, we need to stand united. I hope you’ll come share in Pride with me and show that whatever happens, you can’t keep us down. Standing strong is what our community does best. 🙂

The Women and the Words

I did a blog post for Women and Words all about the superpowers in Paladins of the Storm Lord and what my superpower would probably be if I had one. Hint: it’s not pretty, but it does involve soup. You’ll have to go read to find out.

Nest stops in person, Denver Pride on June 18th and 19th, then Houston Pride on June 25th. Hope to see you there.

Very Sharp Teeth

Paladins of the Storm Lord 300 DPICome see me at the Bold Strokes Author’s blog where I’m talking about how I came up with the aliens at the heart of Paladins of the Storm Lord! Hint, it has to do with sharp teeth. 🙂

It also has to do with never giving up, a topic close to my heart.

And if you want to see me in person and ask me about it, I’ll be at the Jewel Book Club in Dallas on Tuesday, May 17th!

Anyone else love book clubs?
