2015 is what I’m referring to as my “debut year.” I’ve got the most horrible problem of having two whole books being released, not just one. In this corner, we have a sword-and-sorcery adventure tale focusing on a female dwarven barbarian with severe anger issues and highly dysfunctional relationships. In the other, we have the start of a new urban fantasy series dealing with magical janitors, maids, and muck monsters.
I’m more than a little enthused about both of these novels and would love to let everyone possible know about them. This teensy blog may not be able to spread the word all on its lonesome, which is why I’m looking far and wide for places to hoot and holler (not necessarily in that order or at that decibel level) about the upcoming reads.
Would you like to be involved in the releases d’fantastique? The hubbub will likely be centering around the months of April, May, and June.
During that time, I’m making myself available for any number of guest blog posts and/or interviews (text, podcast, video, etc.), as well as offering ARCs and eARCs for reviewers and reading fans, once the review copies are available. All you’ve got to do for lots of free content and potential free reads is get in touch! You can email me here or just use the website’s contact form (hint: they go to the same place).
So here are your options:
#1 Do you enjoy sword and sorcery that’s chock full of magic, monsters, and all sorts of mayhem? Then may I present Forge of Ashes, my addition to the Pathfinder world of Golarion! It’s out right around the end of April.
A decade ago, the dwarf warrior Akina left her home in the Five Kings Mountains to fight in the Goblinblood Wars. Now, at long last, she’s returning home, accompanied by Ondorum, a silent companion of living stone. But once you’ve traveled the world, can pastoral pastimes and small-town suitors ever be truly satisfying? Adding to Akina’s growing discomfort is the fact that her mother has disappeared into the endless caverns beneath the city. In an effort to save her, Akina and Ondorum must venture below the surface themselves—and into a danger greater than they could ever have imagined.
#2 Do you want to forever change the way you look at brooms, mops, and squeegees…not to mention your bathroom? Then check out Enter the Janitor, the first in The Cleaners, a new urban fantasy series coming end-of-May from WordFire Press.
A grungy, old janitor working for a supernatural sanitation company must track down a fledgling demigod before it’s corrupted or destroyed, all while training a rebellious new employee whose fluctuating power could trash an entire city.
Does one or both of these appeal to you? Know someone who would be interested in being involved with the launches and surrounding celebration? Again, you know where to reach me.
Once we connect, we can set a date during April, May, or June, depending on your preference and schedule for me to do…well…whatever it is you’d like me to do (or I can offer some options)!
It’s gonna be quite the year. I hope we get to enjoy it together!
