My KDP Select agreement has finally run its course (this is how I was able to do the free giveaway during the tour), so now Bloodlines is no longer Kindle-exclusive but available elsewhere in other formats.
I never, ever want to see this book again.
I first wrote it nearly ten years ago, when I was twenty-one. I rewrote it. It was published in 2008. Then I got to rewrite it again in 2011 (left the bones but added scenes and changed other things, adding about 25K words). Then it has been read and tweaked and read and tweaked and proofed and fiddled with over and over–I did another cleanup of a handful of remaining typos before making the ebooks for the other stores, and I am just fucking done with it.
I’m glad you like it. I do. But I never want to hear about this goddamn book again. If I have to read it one more time, I am going to kill Nate.
And Ellie. I don’t care if he’s not in the book–I’m killing him anyway.
January 1, I’m likely going to post a series starter bundle for sale with the first three books and Whiskey Sour for $9.99. I have no idea if it’ll sell but it’ll be a deal for those interested, and it only cost me a bit of extra time to put it together.
There’s also an extended excerpt of Bloodlines on Scribd–ten chapters–embedded in the book’s site page here, if you’d like to try-before-you-buy.
Bloodlines has currently been pirated more than it’s been bought, however so many legal readers got freebies when it was available on Kindle for a week that I am not letting it keep me up at night. Much. But suffice to say I Am Very Cross and This Does Not Bode Well for the Future. Piracy killed River and it will not surprise me if this is the next casualty.
For now, you have a few days left to check out a glimpse of where things are headed with Dial V for Vampire. I have no idea if those who read it are terribly confused or what, but it’s there if you like.
Finally, Soulless starts on Tuesday.
