New Covers, Paperbacks, Bookish Things, and Liberal Use of the Word Fuck

allmybooksSo I’m having a day. A day of bookish things. A day of wonderful things, and honestly? It’s got me pretty nervous. My luck-o-meter tends to run somewhere along the range of “find a penny in the street, get hit in the face with a  sledgehammer,” so whenever I have a good day, I kind of expect to get the rug ripped out from under me in short order.

With how great today’s been, I’m kind of nervously eyeing my ceiling and hoping it doesn’t cave in.

See that picture? That’s pretty much everything I’ve done since November 2014. Okay, I also have a book that I turned in to my Entangled editor and some projects I’m almost done with, some of which will be releasing this year and some things I can’t talk about yet but that have the potential for serious epicness, but that right there is the tangible evidence of everything I’ve done in the past year. I can hold them in my hand. Turn the pages. Stroke the paper and feel its dry soft silkiness against my fingertips. I’m sitting on the couch right now, with that shelf right across from me. Over the top of my laptop, those books are always in my peripheral vision.

And it feels fucking good.

Even better? Knowing that I couldn’t have gotten to this point without the support of amazing people–friends, readers, editors, colleagues. Everyone. Nothing, for me, happens without you…and I’ll never forget that.

But if you squint up close at those covers, you’ll see that A Second Chance at Paris is shown twice. Why? Well, because…

A SECOND CHANCE AT PARIS AND ZERO DAY EXPLOIT ARE NOW AVAILABLE AS STANDALONES

…and Zero Day Exploit is perma-free.

Oh, yeah, and they got shiny new covers, too. And I fucking love them. I mean, I fucking ought to, I designed them, but I’m not doing that fucking self-deprecating shite today. I’ll be goddamned humble tomorrow after karma smacks me and the gods strike me down for my hubris, yadda yadda, etc. etc., known your place mortal, whatever. Look at the covers. LOOK AT THEM.

…it’s entirely possible I’ve had too much caffeine today. Man, fuck grumpiness. Fuck it in the ear.

Okay, okay, I take it back.

So you can get A Second Chance at Paris on Amazon, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, iBooks, and SmashwordsZero Day Exploit is free on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, and Smashwords (Amazon UK should be set to free soon, and Kobo is kind of snubbing me lately and I don’t know why, but you can always get the files from Smashwords for any device). You can also now get ZDE as a standalone print book for just $5.99, with free shipping on Prime.

Moving on to other things…

THE LOST IS OUT IN PAPERBACK OCTOBER 8TH

Soon you’ll be able to hold all your fucked-up, Daddy-issue-worshipping, pain-craving, feminist-loving, sex-addicted, hot-Marine, holy-mother-of-heartbreak WTFery in the palm of your hand. But if you’d really like to help get the word out, sign up for the Thunderclap so you, too, can annoy your Twitter and Facebook followers with a simultaneous mass post:


Get it? Got it? Good.

I think that just about covers it. I think I’ve blogged more in this past month than I have practically in a year. And I’ve got a new Dammit, Cole lined up for tomorrow, too.

I’m really starting to fail at this antisocial thing.

    Congratulations on your well-deserved accomplishments. The new covers are beautiful (talent hog) 🙂 Very exciting things coming up. What is Thunderclap and how do I sign up for it?

    1. Cole says:

      Hey, hon. Thunderclap is basically a posting service that lets you support someone’s message without having to remember on the exact date to copy-paste the links, images, etc.; instead it posts them for you automatically. You don’t have to sign up at all; just click the image, and it’ll take you to the Thunderclap page. Click the Twitter button, and Twitter will ask you to authorize Thunderclap to post for you (only once, and only on the specified date). And then that’s it. You don’t have to sign up for anything new; it uses your existing social media accounts.

    Have more caffeine. Please, because it’s fun and makes you swear more, if possible. Also, no ceilings are going to cave in and no rugs will be pulled from anywhere. You have every reason to be proud of what you’ve achieved. Now stop staring at your bookshelf and your beautiful covers and get some writing done. Okay, maybe stop staring tomorrow then. <3

      …you’ve got issues, lovey. You know that, right? <3

      (Diving back into the writing cave now. Dragonfly, Xue, and Shiver wait for no man!)
