What with one thing and another, a conversation on Twitter led up to this: @theeasyvirtue @mostlybree @smexys_sidekick @smexybooks My next hero says it when he unzips his pants. — Meljean Brook (@Meljean) January 5, 2015 But the Blacksmith does not conceal the Goats of War behind his zipper. He doesn’t even HAVE a zipper, because […]
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. Whee! If I ever want to feel really unproductive, I head over to that page and see how many […]
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 News Tantor Audio has purchased the rights to THE KRAKEN KING!! *confetti* I’m not sure when the release date is, but this means it will be coming. Hurray! Jane the Virgin Oh my gosh, this is the best new show I’ve been watching. If you haven’t seen an episode yet, I think it’s on […]
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 I’ve had my head down working, mostly, so all of my coming soon pages seem to be outdated.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 […]
I guess I should be giving this away at my other site — millavane.com — but I don’t have a blog set up there. At any rate, the past week has brought up concerns of reader privacy, so I thought I might as well address those here — especially since I’m conducting a giveaway that […]
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 […]
The Legends of Red Sonja collected edition is here! I know many of you were waiting for all five issues to be collected in trade paperback format … and that day is here! You can find it at your favorite local comic bookstore, or your favorite other bookstore. For more information about this collection, check […]
I’ve gotten a couple of questions about the compiled version of The Kraken King, because links have shown up at various bookstores. I haven’t seen any typeset pages or additional edits yet, but looking at the bookstore catalogs, it looks like: Info for the print/compiled version: Release Date: November 4, 2014 Length: 576 pages Print […]

There’s a guest post and giveaway up at Paranormal Haven! It’s all about how authors are dirty thieves (okay, so it’s really more of a where-do-you-get-your-ideas post) but there’s also a giveaway! You get a chance to win any one of the Iron Seas books, including The Kraken King! Stephanie also posted her review of […]
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 […]
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 […]
