It’s Raining Books!

Well, not quite…but swiftly following the publication of BLACKFOOT and the paperback thereof– Kindle Press has made a preorder page for LADY OF DREAMS, my Korean-based fantasy.

In case you didn’t already catch it on my FB and Twitter feeds, LADY OF DREAMS will be released on June 6th, and can be preordered HERE!

Eeek! Such excite!

Confined to her couch, Clovis Sohn spends her days and nights dreaming, drifting further away from the outside world with each passing day. But Clovis’s dreams are also real, giving her a glimpse into the lives of those around her…

When Clovis begins to dream of publishing assistant Ae-jung’s complicated life, it brings a momentary interest to her pale existane between dream and waking. Mistress of many secrets, Ae-jung is dedicated, hard-working, and beset by three very different suitors: famous writer Hyun-jun, well-known composer Yong-hwa, and Clovis’ half-brother Jessamy.

When a moment of unthinking sympathy twines Clovis’s dreams with the bored, playful Yong-hwa, she must decide whether to keep dreaming in the comfort of her chaise lounge, or to awaken into a reality that is by no means so sure or familiar as her dreams.

Preorders and Formatting and Editing, Oh My!

Okay, so I expected it to be a busy month.

I just didn’t expect it to be THIS busy…

So this is mostly a post where I’m going to whinge and complain about how much I hate formatting, editing, and preorders.

First, preorders…

(…totally NOT a smokescreen to showcase the fact that Shards of a Broken Sword: The Complete Trilogy (Amazon, Kobo, B&N, iTunes, Smashwords) is on preorder special for JUST 99c guys!)

Eeek! Just 99c!

I love preorders. I love that I can upload a draft as a placeholder and have people one-click to preorder so that they don’t forget about my new release. I do. I love it.

But I’m an obsessive-compulsive little writer with easy access to my KDP (and other) accounts. Which means that I’m in there every half hou–haha, did I say half hour? I meant every half DAY. Every half DAY, guys, I swear, hahahaeeeerrr–checking how many preorders there are now.

Soooooo…well, that one’s a mixed blessing.

Formatting…

…kill me now.

Enough said.

Editing.

This one’s another mixed blessing. I love the fact that by the time I’m editing, I’ve written a whole book. It’s done. It just needs polishing. I mean, it needs a LOT of polishing, but the foundations are laid. There’s hope.

Only, at the moment, I’m formatting SoaBS, doing last, frantic edits for SoaBS, editing BatEoY, and trying to finish writing Blackfoot…

I’m kinda edited out.

So I’m alternating editing with my Korean studies. That’s right, I’m taking a break from editing by studying.

That should tell ya something.

Anyhoo-

I hope you all enjoy the SoaBS omnibus, and don’t forget that if you wanna read the exclusive short story of Carmine & Fancy, and you already own all three of the SoaBS trilogy–sign up to my mailing list! There’s a free book to be had, but more importantly, peeps on the mailing list will also get access to that exclusive story.

If you’re already on the list–congrats! You’ll get access to the story in my next mailing!

Happy reading, you blokes.

Preorder Is Up: AKA, Git Yer Novella Heeeeere!

Hey guys 🙂 This is just a quick, mid-week note to let you all know that TWELVE DAYS OF FAERY is up for preorder on Amazon. So go preorder now!*

*Or don’t. I’m not the boss of you.

1

In Twelve Days Of Faery, King Markon of Montalier is at the end of his tether. His son, Prince Parrin, is afflicted with a rather nasty curse that slaughters, maims, or brutally attacks any woman with whom he so much as flirts. After the rumour that sweeps around the kingdom, promising that any woman breaking the ‘curse’ will be eligible to marry the prince, there is no shortage of willing volunteers. Unfortunately, there is also no shortage of bodies piling up.

Markon needs to do something, but what? Can a visiting enchantress from Avernse help, or is she simply another accident waiting to happen? And will Markon be able to give her up to his son if she does break the curse?

Behold The Beauteous Cover Art!

I’ve been very busy these last few days, finishing final edits of my MS Masque. Likewise busy has been the very talented Joleene Naylor, finishing up the cover of Masque for me.

Happy mortals, feast your eyes on the beauteous cover art! Then go ahead and preorder Masque from Amazon or Kobo. Publication date is set for 1st February, 2015. Two months, guys!

MASQUE - 2500

And if you’re like me and need a blurb to read, scroll down. Adieu. I’m off to gloat a little more over my cover art.

 

    Beauty met the Beast, and there was . . . bloody murder?

            It’s the Annual Ambassadorial Ball in Glause, and Lady Isabella Farrah, the daughter of New Civet’s Ambassador, is feeling pleasantly scintillated. 

In the library is Lord Pecus, a charming gentleman whose double mask hides a beastly face, and who has decided that Isabella is the very person to break the Pecus curse. 

In the ball-room is young Lord Topher, who is rapidly falling in love with an older woman. 

And in the card-room, lying in a pool of his own blood, is the body of one of Isabella’s oldest friends: Raoul, Civet’s Head Guardsman.  The papers sewn into his sash seem to suggest espionage gone wrong, but Isabella is not so certain.

Lord Pecus, as Commander of the Watch, is of the opinion that Isabella should keep out of the investigation and out of danger.  Isabella is of the opinion that it is her murder to investigate, and that what a certain Beast-Lord doesn’t know won’t hurt him.  . . .    

Will Isabella find the murderer before Lord Pecus does, or will she end her investigation as a bloody spatter on the parlour floor?

 

Note: I’m currently sending Masque out for review, so if you’re interested in getting your hot little hands on a free review copy, email me at gingellwrites (AT) gmail.com. I’ll send a digital or physical copy of Masque to you for the purposes of a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads, etc. All honest reviews are welcomed, and I understand that not everyone is going to love me and my books. (Odd, but there it is . . .)
