My darling Gentle Reader,
I am at a super secret remote location right this moment, typing away on the next novel. I’m doing my very best to beat everyone else’s word count, because I’m that kinda girl. Since there are 19 other writers with me, I have my work cut out for me!
I’ll be back the second week of March.
Meanwhile, here’s what’s happening!
Includes the following books and many more!
Poison or Protect is in this bundle.
RTI on Sale!
I put Romancing the Inventor ebook on sale for $2.99 (USA, Kindle). Just because, not everywhere and it won’t last. I was feeling whimsical I tell you! Whimsical! My whimsy does not obey platforms or countries, it is merely what is easiest to then undo later… We shall see how it goes.
This book is probably my most critically regarded, thank you bloggers. Lesbians for the win!
“Romancing the Inventor is such an incredibly sweet, slow build romance and I totally fell for both of the main characters.”
“This is a very slow burn romance but so, so sweet. Both women are whip smart – Genevieve with her inventions and Imogene with math – and it was fun to watch Genevieve’s resistance crumble under Imogen’s relentless pursuit.”
“Lefoux has always been one of my favourite characters in the series, and it was lovely to see her finally get a happy little romance of her own. I also really enjoyed the introduction of Imogene as a character. she was fun and sympathetic, and gave the reader the opportunity to see Alexia from an outsider’s perspective, painting not an entirely favourable portrait. That shift of perspective was really compelling.”
Recognition for The Sumage Solution
The Sumage Solution made the short list for the ALA’s 2018 RUSA Book & Media Awards Reading List in Romance. Thank you to my wonderful librarian advocates out there. I don’t always know who you are, but I know you exist and I am sending you ALL THE LOVE.
The Sumage Solution was also on Tom Brady’s list of 2017 reads:
“Finally, we get to the favorite book that I read in 2017: G.L. Carriger’s The Sumage Solution. Carriger has created a fun world here.”
“The story is interesting and complex with a wealth of world-building and letting the review sit and stew for a day or two has shown me that I did indeed highly enjoy it. As it turned out, I loved both characters—Bryan the sweetheart beta werewolf, and Max, the sumage Placer turned… well, I’m not going to say because that would be a spoiler.”
“Smartly written, droolworthy likable characters, sexytimes, romancey first love romance with mates, entertaining plot and fantastic narration. What’s not to like? If you like urban fantasy or romance this should be a win for you.”
Cover Art Announcement!
I announced the cover art for Competence.
This is the USA art. And that is Primrose on the cover. She is the POV character for this book, don’t worry Rue is still around and getting into trouble.
Out July 17, 2018
So if you are wondering what is going on with the UK cover. Or you’re freaking out about matching books sizes. Or just can’t stand not knowing WHY, then you might want to join the Chirrup.
How to Marry A Werewolf is out before Competence!
May 13, 2018.
I’ve got the cover ready, release and preorder to come very soon. Maybe, if you happen to order one of my other books signed from Borderlands right about now, you could get a bookmark as an early peak of HTMAW’s cover. Otherwise, soon.
The announcement is SOON.
Chirrup first, naturally. Then THE WORLD!
My final book of 2018 will be The Omega Objection, the second San Andreas Shifter book.
Meanwhile here’s 10 Side Characters Who Deserve Their Own Stories (Lord Akeldama has made this list)
“Did you hear what that silly boy let loose in my house? A reptile, of all things. As if I should admit any creature born out of an egg. I don’t even like poultry. Never trust a chicken, that’s what I say.”
~ Lord Akeldama
