We’re getting closer and closer to Livi #5’s release, but first, let’s look at what else is coming!
The Elis O’Connor prequel novella, Season of the Bitch, concluded at Patreon in February. It’s still the zero draft–I haven’t had a chance to revise yet between my projects and work. But at least it’s done and I can revisit it next time I get a chance.
The rest of my writing time was spent on Livi #5 revisions and getting all that ready.
But I also have boxset news!
First, the three-book Demons of Oblivion bundle was rebranded as “Volume I” and I release a second volume with the last two books. The entire bundle is still available at Kobo, iBooks, Nook, etc, but if you’re a Kindle user who wanted the series collected, there’s an option for you.
That’s not the only boxset news!
I’m also in a limited-time 99c fantasy boxset with five other amazing women, Magic & Mystery. It’s available everywhere ebooks are sold.
My contribution is Solomon’s Seal, but even if you already have it, there are five other full-length novels to enjoy, that range from high fantasy to historical fantasy to paranormal romance.
Well, this is likely what most folks are looking for: the next Livi book is coming!
Betrayal and sacrifice follow Livi Talbot on her darkest adventure yet.
As Livi Talbot reels from the ultimate betrayal that has sent her entire world off-kilter, the hits keep coming when her estranged mother—who abandoned the Talbot family twenty years ago—shows up without warning. She’s looking for a pre-Incan stone idol in the ruins of an abandoned Spanish mission that has escaped looters for centuries, and she wants Livi to find it.
Livi wants to be anywhere but home, and a trip with her family to Peru is just what she needs to clear her head—even if it involves reconnecting with her mom. But a heartbroken adventurer is a distracted one, making Livi the perfect target for supernatural guardians in the jungle…and more danger from those closest to her that she might not see until it’s too late.
Like, it’s DONE-done. I still have to prep the ebook and print files, and do all my final checks before I let it go, but…it’s done.
That book represents a big chunk of my life the past few years–a lot of headaches, a lot of pain, but I’m tremendously proud of it.
Patrons will be getting the first 1/6th of the book–nine chapters–on May 7 ahead of the book’s release June 1. All patrons who pledge by May 1 will also be thanked in the acknowledgements.
Paperback will be coming probably mid-May, on Amazon or I’ll have copies through Etsy.
This summer will also see the return of Elis O’Connor at Patreon; her second full-length novel will launch as a serial.
The line between predator and prey is blurred when you kidnap a serial killer.
Still on a quest to find her missing brother, serial killer and witch Elis O’Connor is searching for the last person who allegedly saw him: his former girlfriend and fellow witch Callie Young. Callie’s trail leads Elis to a disturbing conspiracy of abducted witches—one she finds herself in the middle of as the latest victim.
Snatched from the city and dropped in a dense forest in the middle of nowhere, Elis is now being hunted for sport. Her magic is restricted, her resources are few, and it’s a night no one ever survives with human religious extremists in pursuit.
But she’s not trapped in the forest with them: they’re trapped with her.
And they’re about to regret a whole lot of their life choices.
No firm start date yet, but it’ll run for four months or so. More details coming soon!
What I’m Working On
Stuff and things! I both want to talk about what I’m working on and also keep quiet. So I’ll just say for now, I’m working on the zero draft of Witch Hunt when I get a chance. I don’t think I’ll get it done this month–it’s been…a bit of a time here lately, especially living in Ontario, and I’m having another health thing. But I’ve mapped out what I’ve left to write so I’ll get there.
