Holy crap you guys! March 31 will be the two-year anniversary of the release of Under the Devil’s Wing, the book that set me down this road of caffeine, red ink, and conventions. I’ve made friends, I started a company, and I’ve written more than I ever thought possible. It’s been a crazy ride with lots of ups and downs, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I wouldn’t be where I am without the amazing friendship and support that I found in my local NaNoWriMo group. They encouraged me and helped me, and they were my first cheerleaders, and I love every one of them.
I’ve also found so much love and support from fans that I just can’t express enough gratitude. Every time one of you finds me at a convention to tell me you loved one of my books, it just makes my whole day. It makes the hard work and stress worth it, and it alleviates some of that constantly-looming dread that I’m a terrible imposter hack. So thank you.
But enough sappy crap! We’re here to talk about The Beast of Birmingham! To celebrate the anniversary, I’m going to have a little giveaway. Under the Devil’s Wing is free on your e-reader of choice, as always, so here’s the deal:
If you’ve read Under the Devil’s Wing but haven’t reviewed it (naughty), here’s your chance. Leave me a review either on Amazon or Goodreads and let me know about it, and you’ll earn yourself an entry to win a set of Beast of Birmingham character art cards as well as a $10 Amazon gift card! (Good toward the next two books in the series; just sayin.)
I’m going to be at Cyphacon in Lake Charles, Louisiana on April 8-10, celebrating the anniversary! Just look for little Sam here and come and say hello. He does bite, but I promise you’ll like it. I’ll be accepting entries in the giveaway until midnight on April 17 to give you Louisiana folks time to enter, and I’ll announce the winner here and on my various other social media on Monday the 18th.
The Beast of Birmingham was my leap of faith into the world of being an author. I’m so thankful for everything that’s led me to where I am today, and I know that Sam and company were the start of that. Sam may be a total, incorrigible bastard, but he’ll forever have a special place in my heart, as will the rest of my werewolf crew.
So, recognizing that, I think you all deserve to know that I’m working on a special project. The Beast of Birmingham trilogy may be over, but lives go on.
So, this is me officially announcing The Beast of Birmingham: American Hunter, coming Holiday 2016!
Merry Chrismahanukkwanzaavus, y’all. Get ready to take on the States!
I’ll also be doing some posts over the next couple of weeks for those of you who might not be familiar with The Beast of Birmingham yet. I’ve got some character profiles coming your way, some ramblings, and some sneak peeks at the coming story. So super excited!
