Shards of Glass, preview & goodreads giveaway

Posted in Elantra, chapters, Mira.

I have been focused on the very very very many mistakes I have made while trying to be a publisher, and my attempt to juggle has been less than perfectly successful.

However, Mira has not, in fact, made a mess of publi­ca­tion and publi­ca­tion sched­uling, and Shards of Glass will be avail­able every­where one would usually expect a book to be avail­able by, oh, its publi­ca­tion date!

Shards of Glass has a publi­ca­tion date of the 29th of November, so I’m a touch behind in getting the first chapter out for people who like tormenting them­selves by reading sample chap­ters when chapter two is a month away >.>

The preview chapter is here.

My publisher is also running a goodreads give­away. 

The give­away runs from today (1st of November) to the 13th of November.

    Love the front cover. Did we ever get a preview of the full cover with blurbs and such? So, so looking forward to this book. I really miss Elantra.

  2. Sue Ivey says:

    I like it very much! But there are only 19 pages and it seems there is a little more in the first chapter?

  3. michelle says:

    @Sue: I just checked, and I appar­ently included the first 2 pages of chapter 2 T_T. I had some prob­lems getting the “print as .pdf” to work, which is unusual =/.

  4. Zia says:

    I cannot wait for this to come out! Thank you for posting the preview chapter :)

  5. Sue Ivey says:

    Well, darn. I’ll just have to wait, with bated breath.;-)

  6. Wendy Sahyoun says:

    I cannot wait.

  7. Lauren W Isaacs says:

    The first chapter was really good. I am on pins and needles waiting for the whole book. Thank you Michelle for being one of the best authors I have ever read.

  8. Marjorie Young says:

    I love the world of Elantra. I am looking forward to reading this book. First chapter is intriguing. 2nd was more of a hook to catch the interest. Waiting impa­tiently…✨️❤️✨️

  9. BRIANA LORD says:

    Wow! I am hooked. Can’t wait for the rest. Thank you for this.

  10. Marie Gerules says:

    I didn’t find out until too late that you were at the con in Kansas City! And, I missed you. Dang! Looking forward to the new book (to put it mildly).

  11. Anna says:

    I’m waiting with baited breath! This is going to be such a great story, I cant resist squeeling :)

  12. Linda says:

    Now you’ve done it! I should never have started reading….it’s going to be a long month of waiting!

    I placed an order for shards of glass; and came home this morning to a delivery of hunter’s redoubt sitting on my doorstep
    Exciting times; take care

  14. Kenneth P says:

    I wonder do anyone else feel parallel person­ality between Raven and Severn and between Robin and Kaelyn when they were younger

  15. Mary Allen says:

    I went over to Barnes and Noble and they had the book out so bought and read before Thanks­giving. I liked the book. It seemed more like a West novel and I missed Kaylin and Severn but I enjoyed Terrano and Teela being in the book. I received Hunter’s Redoubt hard cover in the mail and was surprised to find it longer than any of the House Books. I am afraid to start it as I have a lot to do in prepa­ra­tion for the holi­days and know if I start it I won’t put it down until I finish the book. I know I am going to love it because I have been waiting for more about Stephen of Maubreche. Thank you so much for writing books I love to read and reread and look forward to their publi­ca­tion all year long.

  16. Heather Warren says:

    Is this the same world as the “Cast In…” series?

  17. michelle says:

    @Heather: Yes, SHARDS is set in the same universe as the CAST novels; it takes place in the Acad­emia, which is now being governed by the former Arkon.

    OMG, another fabu­lous read! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
