Wrecked is free (until December 11)

I forgot to say — WRECKED IS FREE! http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GXE06JM?tag=melbroaut-20 (If you need an epub version, please contact me http://meljeanbrook.com/contact-meljean/) And I updated my “Covers I Made” page with a few new ones that are among my favorites.

Barbarian short story & giveaway & a skull hat!

Barbarian short story & giveaway & a skull hat!

Some day, I might do all of this Milla Vane stuff over at her site. But not today! I’ve written a (kind of) holiday barbarian short story called “Silent Night”! It’s very short. It features a character mentioned in the NIGHT SHIFT story but there are no spoilers, so if you haven’t read that story […]

Audiobook update! (The Kraken King)

Audiobook update! (The Kraken King)

Between the serial and the compiled release, the audio rights were kind of lost in the shuffle! So we’re waiting to hear now whether Tantor is going to pick up the rights again — as soon as I hear anything, I’ll post another update.  

Holy crap, it’s November!

Holy crap, it’s November!

I don’t know how this happened. I’ve had my head down working, mostly, so all of my coming soon pages seem to be outdated. I’ll be going through and updating the site this week, but they will be small updates. I don’t yet have a date for the Blacksmith’s book (or even a title yet, though […]

THE BLOG POST OF SHAME (i.e., Where’s FROZEN?)

THE BLOG POST OF SHAME (i.e., Where’s FROZEN?)

Starting tomorrow at noon, it’s going to be on this blog … one chapter at a time. It’s not a serial. It’s a cattle prod up my ass. So here’s the deal with FROZEN: I’ve been trying to write it for almost two years now (not constantly, because there were other things like Guardian Demon and […]

What I’m Reading: Monsters, Revenge, Steampunk, and Tentacles

What I’m Reading: Monsters, Revenge, Steampunk, and Tentacles

Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary, translated by J.R.R. Tolkien This is going to be a slow and long read. I love the legend of Beowulf, so that might have pulled me in, anyway — but Tolkien’s use of language is just so, so incredible. I won’t be reading this all in one go; I’ll be […]

Where to find updates about my work (Where’s Meljean?)

Where to find updates about my work (Where’s Meljean?)

One of the most important things I learned from the serial release is that I really don’t reach a lot of my readers — or perhaps they are following me on one social media site, but not another, so the updates they needed weren’t necessarily the updates they received. So here is a quick breakdown […]
