The big news this week, if you haven't seen me jumping up and down and shrieking about it yet, is the release of Vassily the Beautiful on audio. (!!) Greg Boudreaux lends his voice talents to the characters and narration and it is everything you could ever want in Vassily. It is all the things.
Cheese and crows. It's worth a listen just for Sumerki alone.
It's up at Audible, Amazon and iTunes.
Also, Vance Bastian is doing edits on the final couple of chapters for Shax's War: Brimnstone 3. The boys are back, and you all will get to hear Vance's interpretation of the new characters. (Leopold is so cute, and Mac is...I'm not giving it away. You'll have to wait. :D )
So we should have Shax's War before the month is out of the Audible gods are kind!
My dark little heart is going pitter-pat this morning - just checked the site and Vassily is now listed as "Headed to Retail" for the audio version! Soon, oh so soon, we'll be able to share the amazing narration work Greg Boudreaux did with this book. I'm not kidding. It's amazing. For those of you waiting to hear Sumi's voice, you won't be disappointed.
Keep an eye out on the web - hoping to have links for you in the next couple of days here. :)
Work is ongoing on the next Offbeat Crimes novel, Jackalopes and Woofen-Poofs - at about 21K now and moving right along. I have internal deadlines that I'm worried about meeting but I'll do the best I can.
Offbeat Crimes 4, Feral Dust Bunnies, is available at Pride PUblishing right now and up for pre-order everywhere else. Two things about that:
So excited this week! Too many exclamation points! Greg Tremblay is hard at work as I type on the audio version of Vassily the Beautiful.
Exact release dates are a little wibbly-wobbly, but soooon! As in late this month, early next. Just think of me as a flopping flail fish until then. :D Vassily is a retelling of the Russian fairytale Vasilisa the Beautiful, reset as a science fiction novel in the ESTO Universe.
Vassily The Beautiful
Mischief Corner Books
Barnes and Noble
Coming soon to Audio!
Vassily Belikov, composer and pampered son of privilege, suffered neurological damage in the accident that killed his father. Resentful of his invalid status, he lives as a recluse, dependent on his mother, until the day she brings home a new husband with two sons of his own.
His mother’s kidnapping leaves him at the mercy of his amoral stepfather. Fighting addiction, fear, and physical shortcomings, he's forced to seek out the criminal mastermind Baba Yaga for a replacement part. While she agrees to a deal if he beats his addiction, paranoia infuses her household. Drawn to her fierce youngest son, certain his actions are carefully measured, Vassily must find the courage to face his fears and his desires if he expects to survive.
Or various sightings of various things. So - what do I have to tell you this week? First a teensy bit of sad news - no Rainbow Con. I'm sorry about not being able to see some of you in July. Hoping to get some different cons organized for next year. I will still be at Yaoi Con in October, though.
Offbeat Crimes News!

Links if you need them!
Also - a free prequel to Skim Blood here on the blog, Hunter Green Pea Coat. You'll understand when you read it.
Working feverishly on Offbeat Crimes 4 now. Feral Dust Bunnies will make it by deadline or very shortly thereafter. Closing in on the end here.
Vassily the Beautiful, I'm very excited to say, will be coming to audio late spring/ early summer. And who picked up the audio contract? The marvelous Greg Tremblay! Very excited about this project. :)
