So may new things!
The Eighth House is on sale with a brand new pretty cover.
Let’s talk about it. The book that started it all, my dirty Hades & Persephone romance, has a beautiful, updated cover.
Let us all forget about the original, tattooed Hades in his historically inaccurate loin cloth. For some reason, ancient Greek-themed Romance novel cover model photos are almost impossible to find, so back in 2017, I did my best and went with the perfect pose over my choice of clothing.
My digital painting skills have grown in the last four years, and I finally, finally, am able to give you a far more accurate-to-the book Lord of the Dead. He’s even got a proper chiton now, for feck’s sake! Persephone’s now sporting some glowing, growing vines, and all the butterflies of spring have followed her into the Underworld. Plus the whole cover has had a color and lighting overhaul so it can now be a better match for its buddy, which I’ll get to in a second. 😀
But check out that new cover in all its glory!
It hasn’t been on sale in over 3 years.
The last time this book was on sale? March 2018. That’s right. If you want this thing on the cheap, now is the time, because I don’t tend do more than a sale or two per year, and that’s among all my books. So here are the details:
US Store?! What about the rest of us?
Weellll … good ol’ Amazon only lets us authors run sales and free days in the US and UK stores so far. If they add more regional options in the future, I’ll be including those, too.
Well? And? What about the UK Store? Where’s our sale?
The TL;DR version is: more Amazon fnckery. The soonest they would let me put The Eighth House on sale was … August 9th? Whyyy? Because boring reasons, and you don’t care. Bottom line, I wasn’t able to make the two sales coincide. Pfeh!
So here is when the Amazon UK store sale is going to happen, if you want to set yourself a reminder for the dates and link:
The Eighth House – Amazon UK Store

But wait, there’s more!
Guess what, my Australian friends? Recently, Amazon has opened up the option for indie authors like me to offer our paperbacks in their AU store!
The Eighth House is the first of mine on deck, and I’ll be getting my other print titles on there as soon as I can!
Get your hands on it here.
And then …
The Mortal Coil … is complete.
I started writing it in 2018. Started planning in 2014.
And on Monday, July 5, at 9 AM, I wrote the final lines. I had been awake for 24 hours at that point, because I flat out refused to go to sleep until this book was done. Fuuuuuuuu … I regret nothing.
And now? It is in the hands of a very talented (and highly intimidating, if I may be quite frank) editor. While I wait to get the edits back, I’m going balls-out (doubly difficult, if you don’t actually have this equipment) to get all the nine zillion things done that happen on the back end before I can publish.
BUT, because I have sworn a very concerning oath to some very exacting gods to have print copies of The Mortal Coil available to sign at my table at Delightfully Dirty in Dallas next month, the minute those edits appear in my inbox, it’s going to be a blazing 48 hours or so of solid correction, formatting, and publishing.
Sign up for my newsletter here to be notified as soon as this bad boy is live.
It had better be near the end of July, or I’ll probably spontaneously combust.
Or should I say … snake preview? Ehhhhh???
For real, how am I the same person who writes these books. SMH.
There are two free sample scenes from The Mortal Coil now included as bonus content at the end of The Eighth House ebook! Any store you get it from will have it, no Amazon regional tomfoolery this time.
Already have The Eighth House ebook? You can update the version you already have, and the preview scenes will show right up in the table of contents! If you’re not sure how to do that, here’s a quick guide (it’s three steps; easy).
And now it’s off to the races, my friends. I’ll see you real soon, with all the “rock hard” gorgon jokes you could ever possibly want. And a filthy, epic tale where Medousa gets the respect she deserves, and you can see if I lived up to my challenge to myself to write my first ever alpha sub.
It’s gonna get weird.
