Hello to the future! This is Meljean, scheduling a post in the past while I’m in my finishing-up-this-book-cave! Because you know what today is? It’s the day that SOMEONE is inevitably abducted! (And the title of this post is just because I realized that many readers were assuming that the guy on the cover was […]
If you’d like to see what I came up with on those covers — and enter a contest for another poster! — check out my post at I Smell Sheep! (and don’t forget to check out the I Smell Sheep review for The Kraken King, Parts 1-3!)
As part of Berkley Romance’s InterMix Monday, THE KRAKEN KING, PART I will be automatically approved for download to any reviewer/blogger who requests it (along with some other great titles, so check them out)! I know many of you are uncertain about the serial format, so this is a great opportunity to see what you […]
This is cool — I went to an event today hosted by Jan’s Paperbacks (an awesome local romance-friendly indie bookstore), which has partnered with Kobo to offer ebooks through independent bookstores to give readers more purchasing options, and that also allow them to support local businesses. As part of the promotion, I have a coupon […]
International Editions The Polish edition of The Iron Duke released on July 20th from Dwojka Bez Sternika. If you’ve been waiting for the French edition of The Iron Duke, I finally have a date! It will be releasing on October 3, 2012. The UK Edition of Riveted (print and ebook) will release on September 13, […]
I’ve been designing postcards for every book release and mailing them out (if you want to sign up to receive these, you can do that here) — I’d planned to send Riveted‘s next, but I just realized that I actually have a release before that for the epilogue novella in August. For the past novellas […]
The awesome Kelly from Books-n-Kisses invited me for an interview today — and I’m also giving away five copies of Angels of Darkness. Head on over and check it out! I will put up the second part of the Steampunk Q&A later this afternoon. I haven’t forgotten them! The limericks, on the other hand… Gah.
My newsletter went out today. Mostly, it just said — DEMON MARKED IS OUT! — but there was also an update regarding a few Iron Seas novellas coming next year (one with Mina and Rhys, the other featuring Scarsdale) and a link to a Goodreads group where, on September 19-21, my editor Cindy Hwang and […]
First — I have a guest post with trading card giveaway and Heart of Steel excerpt up at Marie Treanor’s blog. Second — You might have noticed that Odd Shots is gone. We put up a short announcement, but then the site disappeared so quickly I think that many missed it, but the thing was: […]
I’m in a writing hole, but I just wanted to pop out and point you toward the finished commission for the Iron Seas trading cards. Kitsune has done an amazing, amazing job, and I love them so much. (There is a warning about adult content, but there’s no nekkid stuff at that link.) Later this […]
So, RT — I’ll be there from Thursday afternoon to Friday afternoon. I haven’t made many plans, so I’m pretty sure I’ll just be in the bar or something, hanging out. If you are looking for me, try to @meljean a reply to me on Twitter, because I’ll be checking that periodically on my phone […]
So, the DABWAHA tournament is beginning again — resembling March Madness, it’s a tournament between sixty-four books, including trash-talking, offering shameless bribes in order to get votes, and all kinds of craziness. You can enter your picks here. If you haven’t signed up as a player yet, click on the “New” button in the upper […]
I’ve been slowly catching up on my promo item mailouts (if you’ve sent a request, it’s coming!) and am about to start the reading-group mailouts for the steampunk releases. These are rack cards again, but slightly different than my last ones — because one of the most frequently asked questions I’m still receiving about the […]
I’m back from RomCon! I had a fantastic time in Denver — the events I participated in were a blast, but the best part was having TONS of time to just sit around chatting with all of the attendees, and matching faces to the names of readers that I’ve met online. I also have books […]
I’ve ‘known’ Carolyn Jewel for a while now — I started lurking at her blog several years ago after finding her through Megan Frampton. I didn’t realize at the time that she’d had a few historicals published, but I knew there were several other books on the burner: a paranormal, which eventually became MY WICKED […]
