Guess what, guys! Here’s the (somewhat belated) cover reveal for Scorched Earth, the second installment of the Phoenix Burned serial! Jacqueline Sweet outdid herself bringing Abeni to life in all of her vivacious glory.
Following the cover reveal for Inkubus’s new cover, here’s Reaper! I’m a sucker for colors, so the newer, brighter ones had me from the start!
Sickness is a funny thing. Sometimes one task will be all but impossible, and you’ll have to shift to do something else. And even tasks that are both “creative” pull different things from the brain. Case in point, I can’t write while I have a migraine… but I can handle Photoshop. Go figure.
I tell you this because part and parcel with the pretty updated formatting I’ve been working on are pretty new covers. You can’t stare at the same piece of art for years without periodically getting the urge to try something different.
So that’s how the Inkubus series ended up with a whole new series of covers. If you follow me on Facebook, you may have seen me sharing these already. But just in case…. taadaaaa!
I’ll be back soon with the covers for Reaper, and Chameleon, and maybe I’ll even show off a few cards from the de Long tarot. I’m still moving slowly from August’s surgery, and am still pretty sick, so you’ve got some time to catch up on your TBR list while you wait for new books from me. And with so many awesome new books coming soon- (Any Lili st. Germain fans waiting for Gun Shy?) that list’ll be full again soon enough.
Next up, the new Reaper cover!
Anarchist’s Lullaby is now available for preorder, with a March release.
With Malia live, it’s time to talk about her music! She likes it slow, a little aggressive, and if it has an orchestral hook, all the better.
Oftentimes, Malia’s music isn’t clubworthy; when it can be incorporated into a set, it’s entirely because of her capacity as a performer. Rules are meant to be broken and all that.
But it’s lyrical, often melancholy, and it suits her.
The second Queen of Clubs story, Malia, is now widely available!
The exotic dancers and employees of the Queen of Clubs walk a fine line, with only wits, beauty, and market savvy to keep them from toppling into the shark pit. Ride shotgun through lapdances, romance, and sexual awakenings. Don’t worry, these girls won’t ask what your hands are doing under the tip rail.
A former ballet dancer turned stripper ends up in the wrong place at the wrong time. What could be worse than ending up in your first love’s lap…at his brother’s bachelor party?
Where To Buy:
Also available in the What To Read After FSOG Gemstone Collection, Part Eight.
I’m excited to share some excerpts, and Malia’s dancer playlist. In case you missed Cora, here’s an excerpt, and don’t forget to read it first! These stories are standalone, but some of the vocabulary has an easier entry point in Cora.
And… here’s Malia!
Love and Lapdances!
Exciting news! Malia will release a little early as part of the WTRAFSOG Gemstone anthologies. I’m pretty psyched, since WTRAFSOG is a great source of recommendations, and has steered me to some amazing books. I’ve had a lot of fun with the amazing members of that community.
It’ll be widely available on its own December 15th, but exclusive in The Gemstone Collection until then. So get it for a great price, and meet several other amazing authors at the same time! Something to keep you occupied until Tori comes out, in January.
I’ll share a purchase link as soon as it’s available, but in the meantime, you’re all invited to come hang out on facebook for the launch party. Lots of giveaways, including some handmade wearable pretties I’ve been working on, and good natured pervy fun with an amazing batch of authors.
Love and Lapdances!
Okay- so a dancer’s playlist is a very personal thing. Sometimes, it strikes a balance between her persona and her clients- grown men don’t want to listen to Taylor Swift, no matter how confident her music makes the dancer feel- and sometimes it’s something that says a lot about the dancer.
Cora’s music is slow, sexy, and sometimes at odds with the club’s playlist. But it’s perfect for a night at home, with low lighting.
Janelle Monae Primetime
Of course we would begin with those two, since they’re her first set ever, and such a memorable one, at that. But it goes on.
