I re-published all eleven books at all the portals this morning, so links are processing and percolating. I’ll update the links here on the site by the end of the week.
Here we go again!
The Dragons of Incendium series is enrolled in Kindle Unlimited right now, and Wyvern’s Mate is free – for just five days. From today through Monday, January 14, you can grab a copy of Troy and Drakina’s story for no money at all, even if you don’t subscribe to KU.
Wyvern’s Mate is also available in audio. The audio edition is narrated by Saskia Maarleveld.
Have a listen:
The pre-orders are up for Nimue’s Gift!
The birth of three royal babies in rapid succession calls for a celebration! King Ouros and Queen Ignita invite the best and the brightest to share their joy in the arrival of their grandchildren from daughters Thalina, Anguissa, and Percipia.
But the ritual of esteemed guests granting each child a gift brings a surprise that will cast a long shadow…
Coming September 4!
Nimue’s Gift is included in the minibook edition of Wyvern’s Angel.
Here’s a new review from Heather for Wyvern’s Outlaw:
“I really liked this one in the series. Ryke and Anguissa intrigued me when they showed up in Thalina’s book, Wyvern’s Warrior, so I looked forward to their story. It didn’t disappoint. It was action filled, passionate, and had strong characters. Loved every moment of their story, though I did want more from the ending. That happened way too fast for my taste. It definitely could have been drawn out more. Other than that, loved it.”
You can read the review on Heather’s blog, Rendezvous with a Romance, right here.
Thank you, Heather!
Wyvern’s Angel was uploaded to all of the portals last night, which was sooner than I’d expected so that’s a good thing.
This morning, it’s live at Kobo, Amazon, and GooglePlay. It’s in review at iBooks. I’ve put it in my online store, as well.
My newsletter will go out tomorrow.
Thanks again for your patience!
The print mini-book will be available once Nimue’s Gift is published.
Wyvern’s Angel is running late in the final production and formatting. 😦 I was late getting the book written and missed my slot with my editor. Everyone pulled together to get it done, but we didn’t quite make it. Right now, the book is being proofread and it will be published immediately after that.
I’m hoping for tomorrow.
I moved the delivery dates at KOBO and iBooks into June, because they (esp iBooks) need time to process the book file which they didn’t have yet. When I upload the book file, I’ll move the publication date back to make the book available immediately. At iBooks, there will be a slight delay, since they manually review all book files. I’ll publish to the other portals at the same time.
Fingers crossed that you’ll be able to get the book tomorrow at most portals and from iBooks by the end of the week.
My Dragons & Angels newsletter will go out Thursday or Friday and will include a special offer for subscribers.
The next short story in the Dragons of Incendium series will be Nimue’s Gift. The print edition of Wyvern’s Angel will be available when Nimue’s Gift is published and can be included in the print book.
The next romance in the series will be Peri and Nero’s story, Wyvern’s Wizard.
What threw my schedule was preparing the first eight Dragonfire novels for re-publication. Six of them are done now and the seventh will be locked and loaded today, so I’ll be back to my regular rhythm very soon.
Thanks for your patience! I really like Bond and Percipia’s story and hope you do, as well.
One of the interesting things for me about the Incendium series is how the stories lead to each other and connect to each other. Usually, I wrote series in which each book follows the previous one in the chronology of the world. The sequence is linear. Incendium has never been like that. It started with Nero’s Dream. Characters meet before it’s time for their own story, usually to share details that explain more of the world. Characters tell stories about what happened in the past – that includes Nero, Arista, Kraw (although he was outed by the ShadowCaster), and Celo. 2018 seems to be the year of the world guide for me, so I’m compiling lists and spreadsheets like mad. While there are several ongoing references already compiled for this series – see Guides to Incendium – this week, I’ve been charting out the full chronology of Incendium as told to date. That’s also helping me to plan the rest of the series in greater detail and make sure I don’t leave anything out.
In Wyvern’s Warrior, Anguissa returns to Incendium on her ship, the Archangel. She then helps Acion and Thalina escape. About a heartbeat later 🙂 the Archangel encounters the ship of Captain Hellemut again. Anguissa leaves the Archangel, while Acion and Thalina continue their story.
But Anguissa’s story (Wyvern’s Outlaw) starts when she leaves the Archangel. She meets Ryke on Captain Hellemut’s ship and recognizes him as the Carrier of the Seed.
Meanwhile, back on Incendium, Bond and Percipia’s story (Wyvern’s Angel) starts with the Archangel’s return to port. In fact, Bond has already left the starport by the time we meet Anguissa in Wyvern’s Warrior. This is kind of bending my mind a bit, but it is fun.
I’ve also realized that these three dragon shifter princesses will all be meeting their destined mate, falling in love, and getting pregnant at the same time. The birth of three royal babies in rapid succession certainly calls for a party.
In Wyvern’s Mate, the High Priestess of Nimue arrived to bless the baby. Who will arrive on Incendium to bless these three children? Or will they be given wishes instead? And what about Gemma’s child? Once again, I have a second generation of shifters to accommodate in my paranormal world. The short story after Wyvern’s Angel will be about the party for those three babies.
More details to come!
I’ve moved the publication date for Wyvern’s Angel into May. It turns out that the Pyr – my Dragonfire shifters – are consuming a lot of my time, as I prepare the new editions of the first eight Dragonfire books. We have a system now, and are past the halfway point, but Wyvern’s Angel isn’t written yet.
Boo. I’m not thrilled about making this change, but reality sometimes bites.
If you pre-ordered at Nook, please cancel your pre-order and wait for the new link. I unpublished the book there but a new buy link will reappear closer to the publication date. I’m changing the distribution method for getting my books at Nook. This shouldn’t be your issue, but I learned this week that Nook will merrily fulfil pre-orders for books that have been unpublished, even if there isn’t a book file. Gah. Better that you cancel the order now, rather than try to get a refund in April. I’m trying to get them to sort this out at the back end, but the easiest solution is for you to cancel your pre-order.
The fourth dragon shifter princess from space gets her story—and the rebellious Anguissa finally meets her match in Ryke. I love this story and am so excited that it’s out in the world!
Wyvern’s Outlaw is available in both print and digital formats now.
Ryke wants nothing more than to escape the space pirates of the Gloria Furore and go home to his young son. He’s pretended to share their views and has worked his way up the ranks to co-pilot of the Armada Seven, commanded by the most vicious space captain of all. The capture of Princess Anguissa and her ship, the Archangel, is a moment of triumph for his superior—except that Anguissa never plays by anyone’s rules. In a flash of dragon fire, she incinerates most of the crew and takes command of the Armada Seven. Ryke is spared, but he’s not sure why—what plans does the beautiful dragon princess have for his future? And what will she demand to grant his wish of returning home?
I’m trying out a new integration between my Selz store and BookFunnel. When you buy the book in my store, you’ll get an email from BookFunnel with download links after the payment is processed. BookFunnel does a great job of making sure you get the digital book onto your device of choice, which is why I’m trying this out.
Order a signed print copy (which includes Celo’s Quest) from my online store.
