ATTN: Book Reviewers (ARCs for B&B4 A Sanguine Solution)

ATTN: Book Reviewers (ARCs for B&B4 A Sanguine Solution)

Hello my lovelies! I wanted to write up a quick life update because things have been a little crazy out here in my neck of the woods and whenever life gets busy it has a habit of affecting book releases.

If you don’t follow me on twitter, I’ll start by saying that I’ve started working as a barista again for the holidays at a very busy starbucks. It’s a great opportunity to work with a lot of really cool people but it did come at a time when I’ve been struggling to balance so many creative projects. I’ve also been participating in NaNoWriMo, vlogging the first half of November, and finishing up edits on B&B #4. As I’ve mentioned here a few times, I’m intending to release Blood & Bone #4: A Sanguine Solution in the very near future. Originally I had hoped it would be out at the end of October but now we’re looking at “before Christmas.”

Since there’s a little bit more of a lead on the release, I thought I would take the opportunity to offer ARCs of B&B4 to interested book reviewers in exchange for an honest review after release. Seeing as this is the fourth book in a series in an extended universe, I do have a short little questionnaire for you to fill out to request an ARC if you’re interested:

Copies should be made available sometime in the next two weeks, so please fill out the form and let me know before then!

A New Blood & Bone Novella is out!

A New Blood & Bone Novella is out!

First, a little Blood & Bone News…

Hello lovely readers. It’s been a while, but I’m here with some exciting news!

Ever since the release of The Symbiotic Law, I knew that I wanted to write one more novel about Ethan and Patrick, but it’s taken me a few years to be ready to continue their story. In the last couple of months I’ve finally turned my attention to writing that novel, which will be titled A Sanguine Solution. It’s not quite ready for the world, but I’m hoping to release it before the end of the year, maybe as early as November!

Now, a gift to you…

To tide you over until A Sanguine Solution, I’ve written a bonus novella, Remainders, set in the Blood & Bone universe.

For awhile now, I’ve wanted to write a story starring Detective Sabira Mallory, and in the course of drafting A Sanguine Solution, I finally realized precisely what story I wanted to tell with her. Remainders grew like wildfire from that epiphany.

Returning to this universe is in many ways like meeting an old friend for coffee, and I’m super excited to share it with you once again.

Available on Amazon

Blurb:

She’s the junior partner, the freshly promoted detective in Major Crimes, but Sabira Mallory has been working her ass off all summer, first with her irritable partner Patrick Clanahan, and later with FBI Special Agent Vector Clanahan. Every way she turns she’s tripping over werewolves, and now that her partner has fled town, Sabira’s in store to meet yet another member of the McClanahan pack: Patrick’s cute sister Grace.

Set in Seattle during The Symbiotic Law, Remainders is a Blood & Bone novella which explores the blossoming friendship between Detective Mallory and Grace Clanahan.

Check out the latest novella f/f from the Blood & Bone Series!

Blood & Bone 3.5 Cover Reveal & Giveaway!

Blood & Bone 3.5 Cover Reveal & Giveaway!

Hello lovely readers, it’s been an age it seems since my last blog post but I’m back with some exciting news: Not only will I be releasing a new novel in the Blood & Bone series staring Ethan and Pat, but I’ve just about finished up a new supplementary novella set in the same universe starring Sabira Mallory and Grace Clanahan! This novella, titled Remainders, takes place during The Symbiotic Law and gives a little peek into what was happening in Seattle during the boys’ little world adventure. (please be aware this novella features an f/f relationship)

As a thank you to everyone who has stuck around through my slow release schedule, and to hopefully peek your interest in Blood & Bone 4 (coming late 2017, more news on that to come!), I’ll be giving away a free copy of Remainders to everyone who signs up to my New Release Mailing List. This is the same mailing list I’ve always had so if you’re already signed up then you’re all set.

If you’d like to make sure you receive your own free copy, you MUST sign up to the list on or before October 10th midnight PST!

If you have any questions about the giveaway or the series please feel free to leave them in the comments below or come chat with me over on twitter.

As always, happy reading!

Late June 2012 – Capitol Hill – Lachlan

How was it that the second things started to go okay, reality inevitably intervened in the worst way?

Lachlan struggled to put the words he was hearing into a context that would compute inside his brain. His hand, gripping the cellphone, froze around the little plastic chassis. If the device had been any less well made, it would have cracked.

“I’m sorry, can you say that again?”

The woman—the police officer or the EMT, or whoever it was that the police station had gotten to call him—said the words again and this time they broke through the fog in his head. Lachlan politely thanked her for her time and hung up. He looked at Vector, but he didn’t need to say anything, the werewolf had heard it all with his wolf ears.

“Lachlan,” Vector breathed out in a soft voice.

He shook his head and dropped the phone. It thumped quietly against the thin rug under his feet. He should check it for other calls—texts—something. Surely the moment hadn’t passed without—while he was—

A man had died in Seattle, which was not a unique occurrence. Men killed each other day. People died from natural and unnatural causes. Took their own lives in some cases. This was a big city, filled with hundreds of thousands of people, all of them wading through existence, waiting for that moment for it be snuffed out.

New Release! Coy Trick – A Palouse County Romance 2

New Release! Coy Trick – A Palouse County Romance 2

New Release: Coy Trick!

cold-press-palouse-country-1Hello my lovelies! A few winters ago I wrote a sweet little romance short story set in the Palouse region of Eastern Washington called Cold PressI’ve been meaning to write a follow-up companion short in that same universe–indeed in that same charming small town called Belleville–ever since. A few days ago that sequel short went live, just in time for you to enjoy it as the weather (at least here in Washington) begins to turn dismally cold. While I no longer live in the Palouse, I have a lot of fond memories of the region and it’s always a pleasure to return there, even if just for short snippets of time.

palouse-2-resize-smallCoy Trick picks up not too long after the end of Cold Press and features both new and familiar faces. About a recently divorced literary novelist struggling with his ongoing attraction to the man who helped break up his marriage, it serves as the next step in this ongoing winter series, and introduces a new touch of magical realism. If that sounds up your ally, be sure and check it out!

Purchase Coy Trick for 99cent or read for free via Kindle Unlimited!

Coming in 2017

For anyone who missed my november wrap-up, I was super pleased to finish writing Vapor Trail, the second book in The Profane Series. Vapor Trail should be hitting shelves sometime near the end of January 2017 or early February, and I’ll be posting a couple of chapters in January for you to read so keep your eyes peeled!

Also in early 2017 I’ll be releasing a FOURTH book in the Blood & Bone Series, tentatively called A Sanguin Solution. I’m writing this novel right now and it picked up shortly after the end of The Symbiotic Law for those of you curious to see how Ethan Ellison and Pat Clanahan deal with the aftermath of that novel. I’m super happy to be diving back into these two characters and their struggles; it’s a lot like coming home to a good–if somewhat bitchy–old friend 😉

Lots of exciting books will be coming out in 2017. I’m excited. For updates on new releases make sure you’re subscribed here or on my mailing list.



Happy winter season to you all!

New Release & Thank You!

New Release & Thank You!

First off, can I just say WOW! I am blown away by all the responses I got on my reader poll and I can’t say thank you enough! I am so touched that so many of you took the time to vote and comment/email me your thoughts on KU, it was really informative to hear directly from you guys!

It was great to have a glimpse into how you guys prefer to buy books, and it was great to finally hear from some readers re: KU. A lot of times, as an author, it’s easy to get caught up only discussing these services, news, and industry changes with other authors. But it’s so important to connect with you guys–the readers–the people who we are writing these books for! 😀

Amazon

Switching gears a little bit, I’m pleased to announce the release of The Kingdom of Pacchia Book 4! This story picks up where THE HONORABLE BETA left off, returning us to King Aubrey and Lord Riven’s ongoing relationship and political woes.

BLURB

There’s no time for happily ever after in the Kingdom of Pacchia…

The King’s timely marriage to Lord Riven is only the first piece of scandalizing and worrisome news to break as winter stretches onward, a cold foreboding landscape of snow and strife. First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes a baby and the imminent threat of civil war–at least so it seems for King Aubrey Allora.

Dive into the latest story from The Kingdom of Pacchia: The Line of Allora. This book features alpha/beta/omega dynamics, omega biology, and minor mpreg.

The Line of Allora is available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited–and is on SALE this week at a special 99cent launch week price!

In anticipation of The Line of Allora releasing later this month/early July, I’ve released a special omnibus collection featuring the first three novellas in the Pacchia universe.

This omnibus is available wide!

Shout Out For Reviewers

I don’t think I’ve asked for reviews in a long long time, but since The Kingdom of Pacchia has been out for almost two years now and I know many of you who follow this blog have probably read it, it would be awesome if you could leave a review on this new box set! If you’ve previously left a review on one of the individual books or on Goodreads, I would be SO SO grateful if you could pop on over to amazon and leave a copy of your review on the box set.

 

Happy reading and keep your eyes peeled for news about BOOK 4 Coming Soon!

 

Medium Rare 99cent Book Launch!

Medium Rare 99cent Book Launch!

12483023_10153404470691985_1313634818_o Grab a copy of Medium Rare – Limited time offer of 99cents!

Good afternoon everyone! So if you’ve been following along here the past couple of months you’ve probably seen (maybe even read 😉 ) a couple of chapters from my latest book MEDIUM RARE.

I’m very pleased to announce that that book is finally finished and available to read in full on Amazon! For the next week you can buy it for 99cents as a special introductory offer for everyone who follow this blog and my mailing list!

The Profane Series takes place in the same fictional universe as The Blood & Bone Series and can be read as a sister series in either order. You may notice several characters from The Profane Series who were introduced in previous Blood & Bone novels and vice versa.

Now, while a small portion (about 10%) of this book is taken from “The Suicide Case,” the whole story has been expanded and made part of a much larger story, so even if you’ve read “The Suicide Case” I believe there is a lot here for you to enjoy.

Happy Reading!
xoxo, Lia
