Almost there, folks - Fluffy's launch date comes up next week! In honor of this next release, Mischief Corner Books decided that Brimstone needed a bit of remodeling done. Ms. Ivana approved. The series has been delisted temporarily for new configurations, but will be back up soon.
We have in this post the brand new cover for The Hunt for Red Fluffy (plus blurb), but we also have brand new covers and numbering for the entire series. (Eeeeeee!) Potato Surprise is now Brimstone 1 and so on. Take a peek. :)
Coming September 10!
The Hunt for Red Fluffy
Someone abandons a pedigree hellcat right where Shax can conveniently claim her and sets off a cataclysmic domino line of events. It's time for the other shoe to drop since the Brimstone has a shadow cabal after them - partly due to Shax's own, er, interesting decisions and partly due to the presence of Agent Julian Parallax onboard.
As ship security officer, Ness has a lot on his mind—a dangerous new pet, even more dangerous criminals tracking the Brimstone, and yet another unexpected rescued guest. The last thing he needs is a distraction and Julian, who confuses and confounds him more every moment, is exactly the distraction he doesn't need. Between Shax's reckless gambits and Julian's disregard for his own safety, how is Ness supposed to keep anyone safe?
The Brimstone and her intrepid crew do all they can to stay one step ahead, but this time the hunters are closing in.
All the new covers together! Aren't they lovely? :D Crew pictured from the top left: Julian, Shax, Corny, Ness, Mac, and Ness again in a more protective mode. Links coming soon!
Flame Con is this weekend at the Sheraton Times Square! If you're there, please come visit us at the Mischief Corner Books table!
That is, a release date for Fluffy rather than a release date of fluffiness.
The Hunt for Red Fluffy, Brimstone 5 has a release date set for September 10, so fire up your Copernicus engines and shine up your horns. The Brimstone flies again.
Want to see a blurb? It's here if you want to or not :D
Cover coming soon!
(Author's note: It's highly recommended that this series be read in order, from Potato Surprise on through Beside a Black Tarn. If you're adventurous and cavalier in your reading, by all means, jump right in. But it would be rather like going to the opera without a program.)
We had a wonderful time in Toronto with the Yaoi/Yuri North crew last month. I don't have a ton of conventions this year, but there are two more.
I'll be at Flame Con with Mischief Corner Books August 17-18
GRL Albuquerque, September 16-20
Hope to see you there!
Hey all! I'll be more off than on over the next few days since we're heading to Toronto today for Yaoi/Yuri North.
I'll be driving up and meeting up with Freddy MacKay and Diane Allan and we'll be at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Convention Center on Dixon Rd starting on Friday afternoon.
The table will be set up early afternoon Friday, and official Yaoi/Yuri North event times are:
Friday: 5pm to midnight
Saturday: 10am to midnight
Sunday: 10am - 5pm
Come see us at the Mischief Corner Books table or at our two panels:
Hooray! The second Offbeat Crimes box set is out this week. :)
This one has both of Alex and Jason's stories and the second Carrington and Erasmus one (though that's also everyone's since it wraps up the series arc.)
Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh! The Hunt for Red Fluffy is done. The End. She's now with the faithful beta readers and it shouldn't be too much longer before we see a release date.
This is the longest Brimstone yet, at about 39K before edits. Huh. My little novella series is trying to turn into novels.
We're counting down now - less than a month before the release of The Mage on the Hill - eeeeee! I have blog posts to write and things to do, but I'm very excited to announce that Mage will also be launching in German. :D
Der Magier auf dem Berg should be available on or about the English language release date.
For The Mage on the Hill, that is. I'll be doing the rounds at some of the blogs, but I also want to offer a limited number of reader ARC's in a couple of weeks. A couple of things:
We're about six weeks out and I'm starting to get super nervous. *bites nails*
If you want to wait for your official copy on release day (or if you don't get an ARC) the pre-order links are everywhere :)

Also, the first Brimstone Journals collection has launched in French :D
Les Registres de La Soufrière 1
La Soufrière : vaisseau de transport, centre de commandes de contrebande et de mercantilisme. Mené par un prince démoniaque à la tête d’un équipage pouvant faire honte à n’importe quelle bande de marginaux. Après une cargaison de vaches anti-gravitation et une autre de pommes de terre couleurs joyaux. Après les horreurs des grenouilles et des cauchemars. Il est temps de découvrir d’autres moments, plus calmes, au sein de La Soufrière, de petits bouts d’histoires récupérées parmi les différentes vies de l’équipage, que ce soit l’enfance de Shax et Verin en Enfer, ou la suite de leurs aventures après « Le Lac noir ».
Le tome 1 des Registres de La Soufrière contient également une nouvelle festive que Shax aurait préféré ne jamais voir publiée... tant pis pour lui.
It's finally springy here while I type this, which puts me in a hopeful, green frame of mind. There are more daffodils this year, so my separation campaign has worked, though the squirrels seem to have stolen the tulip bulbs again despite the blood meal. Oh well.
In writing news, because you didn't come for a gardening blog:
The Amazon links are here for The Mage on the Hill! Up for pre-order now in all countries that I've checked (UK, Germany, Italy, France, Netherlands, Australia, Canada) and releasing May 7.
Pre-order links are available everywhere else as well including, of course, at the publisher. :)
Barnes and Noble
The first box set of Offbeat Crimes stories releases this coming Tuesday at Pride Publishing. That's the first three books in the series for only $4.99. A steal if there ever was one.
The second set is due out April 16.
Chipping away at the current WIP's.
Progress is ongoing for Detonations and Devotions: Lijun 3, in which Tally and Haru just have a lovely life and nothing at all goes wrong. (If you are screaming liar, liar, pants on fire! at this point, you would be correct.)
Also making good progress on the next Brimstone, The Hunt for Red Fluffy. Looks to be about halfway there? I gave up predicting word count for Shax some time ago, though, so let's just say we're at least a third, possibly more.
This is a fun thing releasing next month. The Offbeat Crimes series will be released in two box sets. This first one contains:
Lime Gelatin and Other Monsters
The Pill Bugs of Time
Skim Blood and Savage Verse
For a steal of a price, too. :D
Also wanted to mention that the first industry review of The Mage on the Hill is scheduled in Foreword Magazine next month.
I'm both excited and quite terrified. :o
