This month saw my thirtieth wedding anniversary. I finished, and then revised for submission, Cast in Wisdom, and it is, until copy-edits, at Mira. I finished a novella of questionable length (49k), which was one of two short story prompts for the pixel project charity over two years ago T_T. Speaking of short story prompts that were even less short, ahem. Today, I opened the untitled Severn novel, and the untitled first book in The Burning Crown arc. Between the two, there’s 100k words, but I had to put them aside to write Cast in Wisdom and reread all the other West words (which, to be honest, I have not quite finished yet. There’s something vaguely like homework about this, and … I’m not sure I enjoy turning the … Continue reading

The Australian branch of Harlequin/Mira has confirmed that as of now, the book has been cleared for publication. It will take the usual time to propagate from upload to consumer ready — 24 – 48 hours — and then it will be available. We’re working to make sure this doesn’t happen again in future, not only because it’s frustrating for you, but also because I (me, Michelle) feel enormously guilty doing book birthday posts when — yes — the book is not available to everyone who can read the post.
I thought today was Monday. While telling someone that release day was tomorrow, I realized that tomorrow was actually today, January 23rd, 2018. That’s what January has been like, so far… Cast in Deception is now out in the wild. It is available in ebook and in audiobook, and Khristine Vham is the narrator for the latter (I’m very, very happy about this, and sometimes feel I should nail her feet to the studio floor so she will always be the narrator – and this would, of course, be bad of me).
Today, Grave is officially out in the wild. Book Three of The Queen of the Dead, it’s available in hardcover. I’m both nervous and excited because the series is finished with this book. Grave is longer, by about 55k words, than either Silence or Touch. But everyone expects the last book to be longer, right? I went into the store and signed the copies that arrived, and I’ve stubbed my toe on the boxes in the hall (author’s copies — I swear stubbing my toes on a box is how I know a book is real). I can sign/dedicate books if you order them through the store — but as we’re not amazon, the postage is not cheap =/. The Audio book, narrated by Alexandra Bailey, will be available as well. This … Continue reading
I traveled to Brisbane, determined to finish Grave. Toronto to Brisbane is a long flight (or long, at least, in North American terms, and very long if one absolutely hates being on a plane, which your author emphatically does). On the first leg of the journey, I sat beside a young man who pretty much spent the entire flight to LA coughing. Or sleeping. Or coughing in his sleep. This did not fill me with confidence, but it’s not like I could get up and switch seats — these days, all flights appear to be full. I arrived in Brisbane after — yes — the longer of the two flights. (I almost wept when I checked ‘how much longer will this flight last’ and found that the ten hours I was certain I had … Continue reading
