Well, you’ll have to keep waiting–it’s not quite done, what with the editing and the cover art and the pineapples and all–but Reesa posted a little taste of the next Ylendrian Empire novel.
So I just finished rereading Shea Meiers’s The Wishing Box. It’s like a Christmas cookie, really, but better in that you can reread it as many times as you want.
And if you’re reading The Wishing Box, you might as well read Michelle’s Enchanted Grounds — it’s sweet in both the traditional sense and in the non-explicit sense (a few kisses, but nothing else).
As for me, I think I’m going to go work on my shy snake-boys story in hopes of giving it away for Pancha Ganapati.
I’m now listed as an Author on Goodreads. This is both thrilling–it adds to that whole “I’m a real writer!” thing–and kind of scary. It’s the usual pre-release jitters, so I’m doing my best to ignore them.
Also, I have wonderful and silly friends who write books you should go buy.
For now, though, I’m just going to tell you that the awesome duo of Michelle Moore and Reesa Herberth have an official writing website at which you can track all of their writerly escapades — not just those set in the Ylendrian Empire. Go visit, and buy their books! The stories are totally worth it.
I am, however, full of glee. Michelle Moore and S. Reesa Herberth are giving away an Advance Reading Copy of their latest Ylendrian Empire novel, The Slipstream Con. Entering is as easy as clicking here and retweeting the post you find there.
Free to read on Samhain's site, right here.
'Cause The Slipstream Con–a concentrated dose of AWESOME and STORY–comes out in April. This is the cover:
Yeah, it's another plug for the talented duo that brought you The Balance Of Silence (plus other fun things, like Enchanted Grounds and The Wishing Box, along with the more serious but still satisfying You Speak In Memory) — but hey. They let me beta-read for them, so it's only fair I do my bit to promote them.
Go here to read a little teaser; my own one-line enticement is this: Bounty hunters are as human as the rest of the 'verse, and these two may have just caught more than a wanted man…
