Lots of news and three new short stories start Spring off with a bang!
First, the stories:
In the Jonmarc Vahanian Adventures:
Storm Surge—When the caravan is beset by danger and a black beast stalks the shadows, Jonmarc Vahanian fears he is being stalked by a blood mage with a dangerous vendetta.
Bounty Hunter—Three bounty hunters come prowling around the caravan. Are they after Jonmarc, or does one of his fellow travelers hide an even darker secret?
And in the Deadly Curiosities series:
The Wild Hunt–When a strange relic shows up in town and people start dying, Sorren and Dietger battle dark forces and the hounds of Hell.
Storm Surge and Bounty Hunter are available on Kindle, Kobo and Nook. The Wild Hunt is currently only on Kindle, but stay tuned—it will be released for Kobo and Nook later this year. At just .99, they’re a cheap thrill! (And if you haven’t checked out the rest of my short stories on ebook, take a look—there’s a new one every month!)
Next, new books coming!
Reign of Ash, the sequel to Ice Forged, will be out in early 2014. Blaine McFadden and his friends will be back, and the fate of magic—and the Continent—rests in their hands.
News Flash! I’ve just signed a contract with Orbit for at least two more Ascendant Kingdoms books, so you’ll be seeing more of Blaine after Reign of Ash!
Catch me if you can!
May 24-26 I’ll be at Balticon in Hunt Valley, MD, and then May 31 – June 2, catch me at ConCarolinas in Charlotte, NC.
Later this year, you can find me at DragonCon in Atlanta on Labor Day weekend, Philcon in West Orange, NJ in November, and in October I’ll be in the Big Easy for ContraFlow, a new con for me in New Orleans!
June 21, I’ll be hosting the annual Hawthorn Moon Sneak Peek online event, your first glimpse of excerpts from Reign of Ash, brand new blog posts, podcasts and interviews. It’s always plenty of fun, so be sure to watch for more details!
If you’re interested in writing and you’re in the Charlotte area, I host a monthly writing Meetup group on the second Wednesday evening of the month. Hope you can join us! Details are here: http://www.meetup.com/Thrifty-Author-Publishing-Success-Network/
If you can’t come to the Meetup group, I host a different discussion topic every month on Goodreads.com. Sometimes we talk about writing, sometimes we talk about things we love about the books we’ve read—come and play with us! Details here: http://www.goodreads.com/GailZMartin
I hang out on Facebook and Twitter, so if you’ve got questions or just like to talk about fandom, favorite shows, books and movies, join the conversation at Facebook.com/TheWinterKingdoms and on Twitter.com/GailZMartin.
Thank you…and a small request
Thank you very much for reading. If you didn’t read, there would be no need for me to write. And out of all the things you can choose to read, thank you very much for reading my stories. It’s an exciting thing to share the world that’s in your head with others and have it become real to them. You make that possible, and I am very grateful.
And now a small request….if you’ve enjoyed the books and short stories, please help others find them by adding a review on Amazon, Barnes&Noble, Indigo, Waterstones or your favorite online booksellers, or on Goodreads. I truly appreciate it!
I hope to see you soon, online or at an event. Thank you!
