New Release Info…

Once again, I am doing a bit of updating, and I came across a couple of tidbits you might find interesting There wasn’t a lot new, since I just did an update a couple of weeks ago, but…

  • The second book of Jennifer L. Armentrout‘s upcoming The Dark Elements series will be called Stone Cold Touch, and it will be released mid-2014, from what I understand.
  • Patricia Briggs will release a compilation of short stories set in the Mercyverse, including all the stories from previous anthologies as well as several new ones. Shifting Shadows will be released in hardcover next October.
  • For whatever reason, Meljean Brooks‘ next Iron Seas book seems to have been shifted all over in terms of release date, but now it looks like The Kraken King is finally set for next August.
  • Fans of Amanda Carlson‘s Jessica McClain series will be happy to know that there is a fourth book on the horizon. Red Blooded will be released sometime next year.
  • Book number seven from Karen Chance‘s Cassandra Palmer series will be released in 2014 as well, and it will be called Reap the Wind.
  • And finally, it looks like the Underworld Detection Agency series from Hannah Jayne is drawing to a close. Under the Final Moon will be released on August 5th.

    Kaleigha, I don’t know how firm the dates are but on Brook’s blog she has Kraken King as an eight part serial starting in January with a trade version (I am assuming of the whole thing) in August.

      Huh…thanks. I wondered what the big set back was, since it was supposed to have been released already. I must check that out.

    I can answer this! (I lurk here because I love seeing the covers as they come in from everyone — you do an awesome job rounding them up.)

    Anyway, It took me a year to write my final Guardian book, because it was twice as long as any others, and that unfortunately pushed everything else back — including The Kraken King to August 2014. So rather than having a two-year break between steampunk books, I decided to write it as a serial (with each part as a mini-adventure, not just breaking up the book into eight parts) because the ebook production for each part can go much faster than producing a full print book (from editing, to typesetting, and so on) — and because it features Zenobia Fox, who writes serials in-universe, so I thought that would be fun to write her story as a serial, too.

    For readers who dislike serials, nothing really changes — it is still coming out August 2014. But for those who wanted to see something more quickly and who enjoy the serial format, it offers another option.

    I should have more of an official announcement for it coming soon, along with all of the covers.

      This is a treat – thanks for the heads up! I usually wait for the print publication version of serials…but man, it is hard to not take a peek or two to see what is going on.
